Just to clarify: - Re the previous few posts, Tony Carter (and Chris) were referring to the old FRDBI - which, as they have discovered, can now be accessed, (albeit that the page takes an age to load!!!), at: -
http://basidiochecklist.science.kew.org ... /FRDBI.asp (Note http and not https).
Re Pembrokeshire records on new look FRDBI: -
Have you read my previous post ( viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2754#p12483 )? - i.e. specifically: -
QUOTE: "Anyhow - as for Vice County on new look FRDBI - I discovered, after much frustration!!!, that you don't actually put the number in.
You need to start typing in the name of the vice county that you want to search records for. (i.e.: - "Pembrokeshire").
When you do this (and in that instance, after you've typed "P"), you get a drop down box allowing you to select either Peebleshire or Pembrokeshire.
You would then click on the Pembrokeshire option to select it.
Then you have to click on the adjacent blue "Add" tab, and then you have to scroll down and click on the blue "Apply" tab.
After which, the database will actually show records for the selected vice county only.
(I've just tried it for Pembrokeshire, and It's currently showing 150 records there in the last 6 months)."UNQUOTE
Records for Pembrokeshire are definitely there! (Although like everything else on the new look FRDBI, frustratingly difficult to discover how to get at them!). As may be seen from the two screengrabs, there are 17759 Pembrokeshire records listed for the last 60 years
Given the non-intuitive nature of the whole website, perhaps my description of how to actually access and set a Vice County Filter wasn't sufficient?
In order to make the vice county filter operational, you have to: -
Click on "Explore all records"
Click on "Create a filter"
Click on "Where"
Click on the "Please select" drop down tab adjacent to the words "Choose an existing site or location:"
Click on "Vice County" from within the available drop down list of options
Type "Pembrokeshire" in the text box which will appear (or choose it from the two "P" options that appear when you start typing).
Click on the blue "Add" tab adjacent to that text box
(The word Pembrokeshire then appears again, this time to the right of the Add tab, and with a red cross just in front of it)
When that red cross is showing, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the blue "Apply" tab
When you click on that "Apply" tab, you will see the map move, and a few (recent) Pembrokeshire record locations will be highlighted on it in blue.
You can then go up to the top of the page and select what period of time you want the records to show for.
i.e. if you click on the "When" tab, and then, in the pop-up box that appears, change the max' record age from 6 months to 60 years, and click on the blue "Apply" tab just below, you are then shown the first page's worth of Pembrokeshire's 17759 records as in my screengrab above.
Hope that helps.
