A question about location format for these categories. We have a number of categories right now with various island labels, for example "Greece and Greek Islands," "Spain Canary and Balearic Islands," "Italy Sardinia and Sicily" and so forth.

These aren't treated with any kind of consistency in this category. (For example, "Denmark" and "Portugal" rather than "Denmark and Faroe Islands" or "Portugal Madeira and Azores.") I propose that they all be cut back to direct national labels, "Spain" "Greece" "Scotland" and so on.

Glad you asked this question JT - I've been puzzling over them for a bit but didn't quite know what to say about it.

When it comes to some of the English sites there are a few with just the 'County name' but England isn't... should the Country and County/State etc be in the Categories.

I'm afraid I just don't know how it works at all just yet.

Delia, as usual you're a step ahead of me. Let's just say there are very good reasons I'm saving England for last on my worldwide tour of rationalizing the opus geography categories. I'll start a new thread for this topic.

There are some difficulties in some of what is described above, I think. The Faroe Islands are politically at least as independent as Puerto Rico, and at least that far from the rest of Denmark. For locations like that, it might be best to have a link on the main page (here Denmark) to a separate category page for Faroe islands, while the main page can have links directly to locations.
