Twitter and a New Feature!

Store owners, this new feature is for you! You can now sign up to manage your own location on Knitmap! This means that you’ll be able to directly update your store’s features, address, hours, and notes as often as you’d like. Use the notes section to post about upcoming sales, classes, or new inventory. You’ll also receive notification whenever a comment is left for your store.

To register to manage your location, click the new ‘Manage Location’ box (above the map) on your store’s detail page, and follow the instructions to receive your confirmation code via text message. Don’t worry if your carrier isn’t listed (we’re working on adding more all the time), just send us an email with your name, Knitmap user name, store name, city/state, and a phone number (for verification purposes) and we’ll email you a confirmation code. As always, all of your personal information provided to Knitmap will remain confidential.

Once you’ve signed up to manage your listing, you’ll see that we’ve made a badge that you can place on your website. It will direct your web visitors directly to your listing at Knitmap!

Try it out, and let me know what you think!

Knitmap is now on Twitter. We’ll be tweeting with new features like this one, new stores, and other events that you won’t want to miss! Follow Knitmap here.

Thanks for working so hard to give us such a wonderful resource!

Is there a way that those of us who don't have cellphones/text messaging can sign up for this new feature? (manage location)

Cheers,
Allison

Of course! I can manually activate your account, I just need the following information (please send me an email or use the contact form, don't post your information to the comments).

1. You need to have an account at Knitmap; please let me know your user name or email.
2. Please tell me your store name, city, and state (or country if outside of the US).
3. Please provide a phone number (does not have to be a cell phone) for verification purposes.

All of your information will remain completely confidential.

Hello!

Is the "badge" feature functional yet? We can't seem to get it working -- user error?

Thanks for your help!
