    "Edit Details" Feature Gone? No More Mini-MapMaker?

    Happy Saturday to all the hardcores

    I'm noticing something odd that I hope is a temporary glitch. Normally when you click the "edit details" link on a Google+ Local page you are redirected to a edit interface that is a mini version of Map Maker.

    I checked a few listings this morning and when I click on the "edit details" link it redirects me to the Report A Problem box on Google Maps.

    Anyone else seeing this too?

    Same for me Colan. Thanks for alerting us.

    Sure hope it's a temporary glitch and not the new norm.

    Nice catch, Colan. I'm seeing what you and Linda are seeing, too.

    Funny things always seem to occur as Halloween approaches.

    Just tried this on an Australian listing and got the same result. Clicking on Edit Details took me to Report a Problem in Google Maps.

    It is going to be a mess. This happened at the same time or shortly after adding Add a Place in Google Maps for Mobile. This is going to create more problems than it solves. I wanted to bang my head against the wall when this appeared.

    Hi Andrew, what exactly is going to be a mess? Looking forward to your insight as always.
