Following this post I have managed to clean most of my location-related entries by providing missing geo coordinates. However, I have problem with places that has at least one "unknown" element (please, see attachment).

I;m trying to provide 0.0 / 0.0 LONG/LATI values, but I'm keep getting back to this screen with given entry not fixed:



How can I fix these entries?

No attachment :-(

There is a maximum size for attachments. (800x600 pixels, 100kb ???)

Try a smaller file?

You have gaps in your place names. e.g.

1 BIRT
2 PLAC Newtown, , Australia

The gap means an unknown place.

You cannot add co-ordinates to an unknown place.

> How can I fix these entries?

It is not necessary to have the gaps. You could simply use

1 BIRT
2 PLAC Newtown, Australia

Thank you. I've managed to figure this out myself just a few minutes ago.

I, mistakenly, assumed that each PLAC entry must unconditionally have four elements and that's why I intentionally made these gaps.

Now, I see that each PLAC can be referenced by 1-9 levels, at editor's convenience.

Thank you again.
