You'll save a lot of time if you are organised. Here's what you'll need:

  • All your copy in a text document that you can copy and paste.
  • A file of images suitable for web for uploading. (You should have two sets of images: high-resolution for print and low-res for web & email. being organised like this will save you hours and hours of time in the long run.)
  • Full street address details, including postal code.
  • Where options exist: web and email addresses, phone & fax numbers, Facebook and Twitter URLs.

To add an entry to the business directory, the steps you will follow are:

  • Open a subscription for your entry.
  • Add your content and photos, together with all other details.

Outdated browsers
Many people are still using Internet Explorer 7 which is outdated and is no longer supported by most websites, including banks.

You may not want to upgrade Microsoft Windows, which is required for later versions of Internet Explorer, because of the cost.

We recommend that you use Google Chrome instead of Internet Explorer. It's free, faster and you will have a far better browsing experience. You can do it yourself. Click here to download it.

During registration you get a message that your email is invalid

That's usually caused because you have already registered and you can't register twice. Try logging in with your username or email address, and have your password reset if you can't remember it. For forgotten passwords or usernames, click here.

Invalid token

If you receive a message: "There is a problem submitting your form (invalid token)", it means you are no longer logged on. Leaving a page open while you do other things does not mean you stay logged in, although it will show that you are. Your log in expires after an hour or so. Refresh the page to see your status.

Adding Walks, Hikes & MTB Trails

Getting GPS co-ordinates:

All you need is a smartphone with built-in GPS. The first step is to select an app to log your GPS position to a file every few seconds while you ride, walk or run.

For Android phones, there are a number of a free and paid apps that work with your phone’s internal GPS to generate a track of your route which can then be exported as a GPX, KML, TCX or CSV file.

iPhone users also have a number of free and paid apps for GPS.

For Blackberry, the shareware app GPSLogger II is highly recommended. This app can log your progress at a set time interval and can be set to log track points at or above a preset speed (so that it doesn’t log your bathroom or snack breaks.)

Preparing your Trail Map

Sign in at Google Maps (or open an account if you don't have one, so you can save your maps). 

Click on the menu and go to "Your Places".  Then click on "My Maps".  At the bottom of the menu, click on "Create Map".

Under "Untitled layer" (which you should give a name to) click on the Import link to upload your CSV, spreadsheet or KML file.

And you'll see your trail on the map.

Click on the 3 menu dots alongside the name to see further options, and click on "Embed on my site".  You will get something like this: <iframe src="/https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/1/embed?mid=16cqn0xmGgdQEDjMP7b4qFXI_MUk" width="640" height="480"></iframe>.  Select only the URL and paste it into the Trailmap box on your CapeInfo submission.

Adding trails is free.  All you need to do is register on CapeInfo and log in with the username and password you chose.

You will need the following:

  • A GPS log of the route the trail takes.  (There is more on that in the next article.)
  • Compulsory: You need to create a map with that log showing your route.  This is very easy to do and only takes a few minutes.  (More in the next article.)
  • You need photographs and maybe a video of the trail.
  • And you need a very detailed description of the route.
  • And then basic information regarding the length, the difficulty level, permits (if applicable), etc.

Submissions which are just thrown together with too little information will be deleted.

You can come back later and improve your page by adding/changing images and adding more content.
