On Geobla you post a new contribution by pressing the plus symbol. You can post under an existing space or enter the space right away. In the following video I explain how to post with the mobile apps:

Post on Geobla

Posting new posts differs slightly depending on whether you use the web version or the mobile app for Android or iOS:

Post with the mobile app

Press the + icon.

Choose location

  • Select Current Location if you are currently standing with your phone on the place where you want to post.
  • Select Other if you have moved on or want to post older places.
    • With this option a small map will appear where you can select the position manually.
    • Alternatively you can enter a GPS coordinate in the input field
    • Or press the orange button to upload a photo from your phone that contains GPS coordinates. The map will then move to the position where the photo was taken. more on posting past places here

Posting

In both cases, a list of nearby places will then appear.

  • Your place is not yet in the list? Then select “New place”. A map with your current position will appear. Check if the position is correct. Move the nipple to the right place if you want (or move the map with your finger on your cell phone). Choose the type of place and give it a name. After that you can post photos and text.
  • Your current place appears in the list? Then choose if you want to post there or alternatively “just check in”. This means that you only mark your visit to this place without posting a photo or text.
  • "Post in the region " is the last option that allows you to post a post with a picture and text without a location. Your post will then appear in the community without a location but only with the region/state information.

Post with the web version

Click on the big + symbol at the bottom of your cell phone or on the top center of your computer on + New Post. Then three options appear:

1. select existing place

All places within a radius of 1-2 kilometers from your current location will be displayed. If your place is there, click on “Select” on the right. Then you can post photos and texts.

2. button "+ New place

If your place is not yet listed, select this option. A map with your current position will appear. Check if the position is correct. If you wish, move the nipple to the right place (or move the map with your finger on your cell phone). Select the type of place and give it a name. When you click on “Apply”, you can post photos and texts.

3. skip

You can use this function in two cases:

  • You want to post something, but you don’t want to share your exact location. This is because your current region will be determined, for example: “Andalusia”. Your post will then be linked to this region.
  • You want to upload a photo with a GPS coordinate to upload places later. You can find more information about this function in the FAQ under Subsequent posting.
