City Lite Toolbar Help

The City Lite Toolbar appears on some of the City pages that do not have a Full Toolbar. It is also being added to all cities with Full Toolbars to provide additional information.  We will eventually have either a Lite or Full Toolbar, or both, for all the cities. Here are some sample City Lite Toolbars.  We are continually experimenting with adding buttons to City Lite Toolbars and welcome any suggestions. We will go back and retrofit previous toolbars as time permits to add new buttons.
 

All hyperlinks are active for the toolbars shown here.

  This will take you to the Wikitravel page for this city.  If they don't have this city or it is a city that only has an outline with no information yet, we drop you off at the country or place where this city is located. Wikitravel is the public website where volunteers are supplying tourist information for all the places and cities in the world. They have done an excellent job.

  • You may see one of several types of webcam icons for a city.

    Live webcam  Clicking the camera icon will take you to a selected webcam site for the city. Sometimes we include 2 webcam sites, especially if one of the webcam sites is controllable. Webcams may update from a few seconds to once a day depending on the site!  Some webcams only operate part of the day.  We try to find one that updates within a minute and operates 24 hours a day.  We prefer outdoor scenes.  

    Live webcamC  If the camera icon has the letter C beside it or a C on the camera icon, it means that the camera is controllable by the user. You will need the appropriate software downloaded to use this camera. This is usually free. If a webcam uses a Java applet, you will need to enable Java for your browser.  If it uses an Active-X control you must allow Active-X controls in your browser, either signed or unsigned.  (Click here for more information.)
     
      If the camera icon has the letter V on it, it means that the camera is a video camera with real-time sound and motion.  You will need RealPlayer, Windows Media Player or other appropriate software which is usually free.

      If the camera icon has more... underneath it, it means that there is a list of webcams for this city, or the country in which the city is located, that you can bring up in a new browser window.

    None found - Click to Check for new webcams

      If the camera icon has a yellow background, it means that we have not found a camera for this city at all or it is simply not a worthwhile view. We will usually have a link to the "Webcam-Index" website. You can see if they have added a camera since the last time we checked. Also, when you put your mouse over the webcam icon, you will see a tool tip message "None Found - Click to check for new webcams"
