Hay - thanks for all this - But mapknitter returns a 404 error when I create a new project?. I have also tried to run it standalone on my mac But installing from git just won't seem to work with rails.

Some solution would be good happy to help out in some way too.

Hi leon- did you get it to work eventually? Would you try again and if it doesn't work, show us what your maps name and location are?

I'm new to MapKnitter and Public Lab. My first attempt at publishing failed to display the assembly of aerial photos I had stitched together because I did not understand I was required to copy and paste the text produced by clicking the Embed Code key. Once I understood, I attempted to correct my published post, pasting the requisite text into my descriptive narrative. This just made things worse. The entire text disappeared from my posting, leaving just the title and thumbnail. In the editor, all the text except the embedded code was still there. As long as I made no further attempt to embed the code, I could redisplay the text. As a workaround, I added a textual link to my MapKnitter project. What should I do to embed the link as an image properly? References: https://mapknitter.org/maps/rosemont-1947# https://publiclab.org/notes/aplank/05-29-2017/montreal-s-rosemount-district-in-1947
