Notes about Yellow Pages

Important issues for Coordinators to know about:

  • It may be confusing to members that the Yellow Pages display in Community Weaver shows first the 'top-level categories' in alphabetical oder and then the 'top-level: sub-category' in alphabetical order.

  • In the printed directory it shows only top-level category or sub-category and in alphabetical order. The result is that anyone who has, for example, chosen “Home:Plumbing” will appear in the printed directory under both “Home” and “Plumbing”.

  • Currently the filter for states/provinces in the 'View Yellow Pages' display does not successfully filter for states/provinces in a country that is not the timebanks default country.

  • The link to see a print preview of the full TimeBank Yellow Pages directory, which is: <http://XXXXX.timebanks.org/yellow_pages/print?dialog=0> is available to all members but only the coordinators will be shown a link to it in the Control Panel. If you share that link with your members, then they will also be able to see a print preview in their web browser. (Of course, you need to replace the XXXXX in the URL with your timebanks shortname.)
