To Create a New Walk
Log into Glebe Walks Admin.

Set Up the Walk

  • In the left sidebar menu, click on Stops and then
  • Click Walks
  • Enter the name of the new Walk. (A “slug” will be created automatically.)
  • Leave the Parent Category as “None”.
  • Click Add//Upload Image and upload the image to be used as the icon on the map
    (The icon should be 32 x 32 pixels.)
  • Click Add New Walk.
  • The Walk will now appear as an entry on the main part of the page.

Edit Its Details

  • Click on the title of Walk on the main part of the page
  • Fill in the Walk Details (e.g. 3 kilometres with steep hills)
  • Select the Path Colour for the map

Define the Path

  • In the left sidebar menu, click on Stops and then
  • Click Add Stop
  • In the Edit Stop Screen, fill in the title of the Walk
  • Skip the main text box.
  • Enter the brief description of the Walk in the Excerpt box
  • Skip the Revisions and Walk Stop Information boxes.
  • In the Path Data box enter the co-ordinates* of every point on the walk, one per line in the format 151.123456,-33.123456,0.0

*To find Co-ordinates in Google Maps

  • Locate the point whose co-ordinates you want in Google Maps.
  • Right-click on that point.
  • In the pop-up menu, select “What’s here?”
  • The co-ordinates will be displayed in a box near the bottom of the screen.
  • You can copy the co-ordinates by hand but it is easiest to:
    • Click on the co-ordinates displayed in the box.
    • The co-ordinates will appear in a panel at the left of the screen.
    • Select and copy the co-ordinates.
  • Google displays co-ordinates as latitude then longitude but Glebe Walks paths are defined by longitude then latitude and altitude. So you have to reformat them from -33.123456, 151.123456 to 151.123456,-33.123456 and add ,0.0
