The core of Woophy is the map and because people sometimes forget or overlook the possibilities of the map, here are some tips and tricks.
– this can be done in many ways. You can use the controls from the little menu but for me, the most easy way is like this:
Point your mouse to where you want to go (without clicking) and scroll with the scroll wheel on your mouse.
Another fast way to zoom is to click and drag a window on the map.
– instead of using the icon from the small zoom menu, press the space bar of your keyboard and ‘drag’ the map.
Looking up a member on the map
– this is also fun - just type the name of a member in the search box next to the map and select ‘member’ from the drop-down menu. You can then see somebody's personal Woophy footprint on the Earth map.

Saving an URL
– Anything you do on the map is saved in the URL of the page. So if you copy/paste the link from the browser, you can save certain selections. As an example, I have saved the following maps here:
