    Default Main GEH Network Link discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Main GEH Network Link

    This is a network link file that works dynamically based on where you are in Google Earth. When this network link is active, it will show you all of the placemarks on Google Earth Hacks that are in the area of the world which you are currently viewing.



    Specifically, it will show the 100 newest files that we have on our site which are visible within your viewing window.



    Please note that if you are zoomed out too far, it won't return any results.

    Default Nuclear Power Plant, UK

    This in fact a coal fired power station, near Nottingham, close to the River Trent, from which it obtains cooling water.

    True. Is there a way to fix that and make it include this? (mostly 2 mickey cause I have NO idea how to make network links).

    Ok. So you added this cool thumbnail idea where it shows the username's avatar for each item. It's an awesome idea, but its broken. When you go to edit any of the placemarks (right click + edit), the edit window fails to show up, so you can't close the window. You lose access to all the menus, and you must either restart GE, or after a few seconds, a window saying, "The feature being edited has been destroyed," appears.
    Edit: Nevermind, was a glitch on my GE. Works better now that I've restarted it a few times.

    Also, instead of having a blank gray spot for those users without avatars, I would suggest you display the GEH avatar for those files.

    Otherwise, neat job.

    I was wondering why I kept seeing those gray squares, couldn't figure it out. I had to find an icon from a "known" member's file before I understood.

    Ditto to the "awesome idea" comment and ditto to something besides a gray box for those without avatars. What if we just gave everybody without an avatar the GEH logo?

    Any way you can make it so files in the outdated items category don't show up?

    For some reason when I open this file up, Google Earth tells me it's an empty kml file.
    Check out the Only Google Earth Wiki on the internet.

    Very strange. I just replaced it in the admin panel and it's working now, though I have no idea what caused it to happen...
