It gets better though! We have also developed a clever little Facebook Application called Climbing. By adding this 'App' to your Facebook profile you can have a new tab appear called 'Climbing'. Under the tab is a lot of data taken from your UKC Profile including your latest Logbook entries, your latest photo gallery uploads and links to your climbing partners pages, plus your profile information.

To add the Climbing Application to your Facebook profile:.

  • Make sure you are logged onto UKC and Facebook.
  • Go to the Climbing Application page.
  • Click on the blue 'Go to Application' button in the top left corner.
  • 'Allow' access and confirm a couple more questions to complete the procedure of adding the application.
  • The tab isn't added automatically, you need to add it yourself by clicking on the + icon on your own profile. This is explained in more detail on the Climbing Application page once you have added the app.

Looks like an innovative feature, nice work.

So on the climbing app on facebook it has a list of my partners and I can click on some of them and it takes me to their ukclimbing profile. However some of them I can't click on but they have a an entry on my ukclimbing partner list which links them to a ukclimbing profile so I don't see why the app can't create a link for them. Is this a bug or is there a good reason for this?

Can you email a bug report to the Logbooks editor please - saying exactly which profiles don't work? Thanks
Good work, looks pretty cool!
