I have an exit that leads to two different places. On the signage, both are listed. Documentation for the "motorway junction" tag says that you should list both places in the "exit to" tag with a semicolon in between. When I do this I get an error icon in Potlatch. The error is "Tag contains more than one value please check". Am I doing something wrong?

This is the result of different opinions in the comunity. The creators of Potlatch have the opinion that a tag should not have several values and theat relations should be used instead. Potlatch are therefore displaying a warning when you include a semicolon in a tag.

The options you have are:

  1. Destination Signs relation : 3670 uses
  2. exit_to=* : 16588 uses
  3. destination=* : 11342 uses

I hope that you find a way in the minefield of oppinions in tags that are not commonly used.
