multiple mountains, one trip,where to post?

by Norman » Thu Jul 29, 2010 4:00 am

We just climbed two peaks, Fury and Challenger in Washington State traversing on a one way trip from Ross Lake to Mt. Baker Hwy. How do you tie it all together, yet information specific to each peak?

Are you wanting to do a trip report, or mountain pages?

If mountain pages they are simply two separate pages, and if warranted you could do a route page for the route between them and setup both mountain pages as parents, though if they are connected by a trail I wouldn't bother with that.

If a trip report, both mountains can be made the parent.

I did these two on the same trip:

For clarification, if there is already an existing page for the mountain or route then don't create another one. There should only be 1 page for each mountain/route. The Elves will delete duplicate pages...

If you write up a Trip Report, you can attach it to the mountain page for both peaks.

ok, thanks for suggestions. how do I link one trip report from one mountain to the second mountain so its a continuous trip report. I just posted trip reports on each mountain, but when I copy and paste what I think is the link, the paste does not allow you to just click on it to the trip report like I see in the above reply. How did you do that?

Asking again, same question

by Norman » Fri Jul 30, 2010 10:31 pm

Help, I don't seem to be up to this. Why isn't the copied address blue so you can just click on it. Both copy and paste only display the address, but not..."clickable". What to try next?

The forums use BBCode; a trip report uses true html. An html link will require that you put in code like this:

<a href=http://www.summitpost.org/trip-report/643217/Success-on-Challenger.html>Success on Challenger TR</a>

You can also just highlight the text when you are in the SP editor, and choose "insert link."

Why don't you just create ONE trip report and attach it to all the mountains that you climbed? This way your trip report shows up under all those mountains, and it's one continuous report. You could emphasize what mountain was climbed where in the trip report by putting the names in the section headings.

You can attach a page, an image etc (i.e. an object) to another object through the Attach/Detach link in the orange Editor Options bar at the top of the page; There search for all the mountains you want to attach your TR to and add them as parents.

Got to get this, can't be too hard

by Norman » Sat Jul 31, 2010 3:13 pm

Well, I have already made posted trip reports on the two montains, so I think I will just try to get the blue link. I have clicked on link then inserted the ULR or ULR, whatever, copy and paste. I see it turned into a clickable link here in the forum, why not on the trip report page? :oops:

Those are two different things, the forum software automatically identifies URLs and turns them into clickable links. When you create a page, you have to do that yourself. See the Insert Link button above each text section when you create or edit a page? Click it, it adds an HTML link tag in the textbox, and just replace URL_HERE with your link (make sure "http://" is only in there once) and "LINK TEXT HERE" with whatever you want the clickable text to be.

Just google for more HTML tags.
