    This only appears to be a WME UI restriction - if you use the developer console to change the maximum length on the URL input field so that longer URLs can be entered without truncation, the place can then be saved successfully and the URL accessed correctly via the Waze app...

    Long URL truncation is also a problem for some retail chains who provide store-specific webpages in the same way as the hotel chains, and we really don't want to be encouraging editors to use URL shortening services to get around this limitation given the increasing number of people who refuse to follow such URLs due to the lack of visibility over which site they actually link to.

    I agree with Sketch. Also, if an editor pastes the URL into WME and doesn't realize it has been truncated, the unfortunate Wazer that later clicks it in-app will get a bad URL, leading to a bad experience. Please lift the limit to accommodate this situation. Many hotels use pretty lengthy URLs for their localized sites. I would probably lift it to at least 150 if not 200.

    Not just this, but any permalink that highlights an element, should force that element's layer to be on. So Places should force the Places layer on, etc.

    How about this?
    (Attached)

    That's a segment with a future A->B closure and a live B->A closure. It requires the addition of a single line of CSS:

    CODE: SELECT ALL
    .inactive > .arrow { filter: contrast(0.5) }

    As is common with WME, the arrow and closure symbols are actually part of a larger image and WME displays the parts of the image it needs in each location. The image contains separate red & grey closure signs, but only one black arrow. Adding the CSS above to the page obviates the need to add a grey arrow to the image resource.

    I also agree that this would be a great idea. So good, I'm going to add it to my WME FixUI script right now.
    The only question is whether or not I even need to make it optional.

    This is a great idea, and should be a really easy and simple improvement that only requires replacing a couple of image assets.

    I'm told by others who are better at digging into WME than me that the closure indicator in this case is just two images on top of each other: a one-way grey future closure icon underneath with its own arrow showing beside it, and then a one-way red active closure icon on top with the other arrow. The active red circle covers the grey circle below, but both arrows show by virtue of being on the side.

    If that is true (that the "icon" in this situation is just two stacked images), changing the arrows to grey on the future closure icon image asset would fix the situation by itself.

    jonv-uk, you missed my point, I know you can't make any changes before approval. I was talking about after approval, you can't make any changes on address, only after you click on the background to remove selection and click again on the place.

    Even if it's a place with a lot of errors, if the user is registered and we have a way of contact, we should approve it, fix the errors and reach to that editor so we can teach him how to do good editions, that's the spirit of a healthy community. Plus, the place stores important history, created by that editor.

    On the other hand, if the user isn't registered, you can approve it anyway and fix the errors since he won't receive any tally of approved places.

    I believe this post it's on the right place since it's a suggestion. Cheers.

    This has always been the case for as long as I can remember.

    You can't make changes to a place with updates pending, your only choice is to Reject or Approve it.
    If the update only has minor errors I'd Approve it, Save, then correct the errors.
    With the example you gave there are so many errors I'd reject it and, if it is a genuing place, create it yourself. That way you are not adding to the editors tally of approved places, leading to them being able to add places unchecked.

    This probably isn't the correct forum for this kind of issue, the Waze Editor - Topics would be appropriate

    In vanilla production, I can currently enter all information for a closure without removing my fingers from the keyboard.

    Enter description - TAB
    Use arrow to change direction or press A for A>b, B for B>A, T for two-way - TAB
    Type in date (YYYY-MM-DD) - TAB
    Enter hours - TAB (POSSIBLE BUG Here is currently a small issue, when I tab into the hours box, it goes to the minutes and I have to shift-tab to get into the hours)
    Use arrow to change Event or press N for "none" - TAB
    Press space to tick the HOV box - ENTER to save

    Vanilla WME does this as well.
    I can tab through address field and hit enter at any point to activate the "apply" button then TAB to the name box
    Tab from name box highlights the "Add alternate name", you can press enter to create new box and then shift-tab to go into alt name box or tab past it which puts you in the category box.

    If you tab a second time, you can start typing a new category to add it.

    NOTE: you can't delete the current category without mouse

    tab to description
    tab to entry point - press enter to create if needed
    tab to external link - press enter to create box and shift-tab twice to take you into box to start typing - arrow through results and press enter to select

    NOTE: Lock and PP/AP have to be done by mouse

    I have not tested extra tabs yet

    This has been requested for years, I remember asking Irad about it in London in 2015, in the form of being able to set direction instructions on turns instead of segments. There is also a 2017 suggestion that is similar: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.ph ... 4#p1657466

    This was partially implemented in the beta editor, it seems :)
    It's a bit difficult to trigger, but whenever you have two roads with a different city set, the city gets added to the find-as-you-type results. When exactly it triggers is still a bit unclear to me as it seems to require no city to be set for a new segment to work, though new segments automatically get the local city set already, so this is a relatively rare occurrence.

    Could be improved further, but I'm already happy this was partially implemented.

    As for the country list on the right, that is up to the Wiki Editors to remove.
    I didn't want to get rid of it without checking with you guys :)

    Waze puede descargar los mapas sólo si tiene conexión, porque los mapas son continuamente actualizados, y cada vez que abres la aplicación, debe descargarse los nuevos cuadrantes, con las nuevas ediciones realizadas.

    Waze detecta congestionamiento sólo si te mueves demasiado lento, pero no debería hacerlo si estás completamente detenid@. De cualquier forma, al detectar congesionamiento, waze te pregunta si estás en uno, y si no lo estás, puedes presionar en "no".

    En el caso de la descarga de los mapas, estos se descargan automáticamente (sólo las zonas que has recorrido) y luego puedes conducir por ahí offline.

    Esto ya está implementado en la versión de Blackberry 2.0.2.0 y posiblemente esté en las próximas versiones de las demás plataformas.
