In this article, I will run you through some simple tricks you can use to generate a journey line on noforeignland that does not include story markers, and can be limited to a specific date range.
Permanently changing your journey start date
Before we get started, I want point out that if you are a boat owner and would like to limit the date from which your journey is shown for all users (perhaps to only show where you’ve sailed in the current season), then you can already easily do this in your boat settings. Go to your boat settings page, on either the web site or the app, and update the date from which your journey will be shown:
Creating custom journey tracks on the map
When viewing your boat journey, you can add the following URL parameters to customize its appearance:
|true | false
|Show or hide stories
|The date from which your journey will be shown
|Configured in your boat settings
|The date up to which your journey will be shown
So for example, the following URL will show my boat track without stories between December 12th and 17th in 2018 – dates in which we sailed from the Canaries to Cape Verde:
You can see the results in this screenshot taken from the web site:
Note the parameters listed after the /journey part of the URL:
To create custom views of your own boat journey, just add the above text to the end of your journey URL, then change the years, month and dates for the start and end parameters to limit which part of your track will be shown.
You can then take screenshots from the map and share them with friends or on social media to illustrate specific parts of your journey.
