Thanks Grant. I had already tried putting a comma in the second address line but it rejected it because is wasn't an alphanumeric character.

Is there a link to this on the front page of FLO's website? I can't see it.

Currently both pages are only accessible via the links in this post but when there are enough societies entered we will reveal the pages and publicise them at our website. 

Twenty astronomy societies have been entered so we will make the Astronomy Society Finder live soon :smiley:

There are now over thirty astronomy societies entered so we will add a link this week :smile:

We have made the Astronomy Society Finder live and have added a permanent link on our home page and a banner to attract attention :smile:

Thank-you to all those who entered their society details. 
If you would like to add your astronomy society please enter details here
It is surprising we still don't have anything from Ireland, we know they have an active astronomy community.

Tweeddale astronomical society look like they will have a nice dark sky site but they might have problems with wheelchair accessibility.

I'm trying to add the Letchworth society and finding that it will not recognise the name and states required fields must be completed and highlights the society name field. This seems to be the same in Chrome, IE and Firefox and it does not appears to be a character limit as it rejects everything from "Letchworth & District Astronomical Society (LDAS)" to "Letchworth Society" to "LDAS" which would not actually be helpful but I wanted to test.

Hi Steven - can you try now? I wandered if it didn't like the & or the ( or ) in the society name so I've made a change.

Failing that, can you take a screenshot and PM it to me? Or email grant @ firstlightoptics.com.

Thanks,

Grant

Hi Grant,

Sorry it took so long to reply, Christmas and all. Having tried again I at least have a different result as the entry appears to have gone through although there was no confirmation page and searching does not produce it. As I do not know when you have the update time set as, or if you do that manually so I will give it a look later and see what happens.

Hi Steven,

I've received this now - I have to manually add it from there, which is done now :)

It should show up if you search, but please let me know if  the pin needs moving.

Cheers,

Grant
