There are a number of redirect possibilities for posterior, but we are not that kind of group. :lol:

The turn arrows (restrictions) are a relatively common question that arises in the wme chat channel. Thus for that reason, it is good to have some "hand-holding" for new editors on them.

Thanks everybody.

Since we can't make a redirect because these are not country-specific, we may need Kent and his wiki-foo to figure out how to get them appear higher.

However, since this road type is going to be removed anyway, I'm not sure there's a point in expending much effort on improving wiki searches for it.


I dunno; people are still going to want to know how to handle service/frontage/access roads in the editor, even in the absence of a specific road type.

Where can I find codes for the Waze app. Like this one ##@asr enables/disables Turns on or off the voice activated commands feature (Automatic Speech Recognition) if present in your phone.
Are there any secret codes?

Did you try typing "codes" ? ;)

I got it thanks a lot for your help.

Information about searching in the client seems pretty difficult to get to. There doesn't seem to be any article which specifically covers searching, so perhaps "search", "client search", "app search", and so forth should link to How to Navigate, or maybe to a disambiguation page that says "For search in the client, see How to Navigate. For search in the editor, see..." pointing to some part of some article which might cover search within the editor. Although there doesn't seem to be any such section in the Wiki, since editor search is somewhat self-explanatory.

I agree that a disambiguation page for map issue topics could be useful. I don't know that we should be making new abbreviations for redirects, though. Ones that we already use, sure.

Common editor mistakes

I think searches like this should probably redirect to https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Incorrect_edits, a very useful document. I have added "common editing mistakes" as a redirect to https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Incorrect_edits because I simply cannot remember to search for incorrect edits. That's just me. :)
