Notifications system issue

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 09:32:51 GMT

I'm having an intermittent problem with the new notifications function and wondered if others are experiencing it? Sometimes I see the red alert to show I have notifications but when I click it says "Couldn't load notifications". If I try the "See all" option, I get something like this the string below. I can solve the problem by reloading my control panel screen and trying again, so it's not a major issue, but I'm curious why it's happening and whether ... [Posted by ToonSarah - Mar 27, 01:32]

Adding my Travel Map into my WP Blog

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 01:53:56 GMT

I've been taking screen shots of my maps and then adding them into the blog as a picture. Can I put the map into my blogs that would allow people to click on the locations and see the details? If I do this - is there any possibility of people corrupting the data (deleting and/or adding). Also, if I do this - does the map show up within the blog text or will it simply be a linked ...

Budding Members versus Full Members, etc.

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 01:27:53 GMT

I’m curious about how one moves from one category to another. Looking through a couple forum replies I noticed GreatgrandmaR and goodfish were both listed as Budding Members with 37 posts but on the same forum zzlangerhans was listed as a Full Member with 35 posts or 2 fewer posts than GreatgrandmaR and goodfish. On another forum I was listed as a Budding Member with 80 posts and directly below that Lugor79 was listed as a Full Member with 71 ... [Posted by Beausoleil - Mar 23, 17:27]

Message screen appearance/format

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 15:11:51 GMT

I seem to be experiencing some issues with message writing. I only get a small box in which to write - full width but only deep enough to show two lines of text at a time. I can't remember what it used to look like but I'm pretty sure I could see a reasonable chunk of my message as I wrote, not just the line above. It makes spotting errors and editing quite difficult. Also, I can no longer click ... [Posted by ToonSarah - Mar 21, 07:11]

Photo loss of resolution

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 22:15:13 GMT

Hi, It seems to me something has changed in photos treatment. I recently upload a new batch of photos and there is a loss of resolution which appears only for portrait orientation. For landscape orientation, it is still very nice, but for portrait orientation, the quality is becoming poor. I have to add I was now obliged to rotate the photos and that's new. Don't know if there is any link. Question to Peter: Do you confirm there is new photo process or is ... [Posted by Alain13 - Mar 20, 14:15]

New and Improved Travel Groups

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 13:44:07 GMT

Well, I hope this is an improvement. The Groups feature of the site has not had much love in the last couple of years, so it was about time to give it a boost. I've just finished off my initial work on that and have uploaded the changes (warts and all no doubt). Here's what's changed. * You can now create your own groups. No need to suggest and wait for it to be approved or anything like that. I ... [Posted by Peter - Mar 20, 05:44]

Inserting photos into my blog

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 00:00:52 GMT

For some reason, I inserted one photo into my next blog entry and now I can't insert any more photos. I thought it might just be the one photo I was trying to put in but tried several others and they won't go in either. Temporary glitch??? Please don't tell me to upload and relocate them. That is a horrible chore that I just finished. Any help appreciated. Thank you. ... [Posted by Beausoleil - Mar 18, 16:00]

Some more Photo Moderators needed

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 23:42:30 GMT

I'm on the lookout for some volunteers to take on the role of photo moderator. Basic qualification: * Trustworthy - you'll need to have contributed to the site already and there be enough activity here that allows me to judge your character. * An eye for a good photo - your photo gallery should have a reasonable level of quality, so we can see that you have a good eye for photography. You don't need to be pro-level by ... [Posted by Peter - Mar 18, 15:42]


Sat, 18 Mar 2017 02:48:22 GMT

Just a heads up - I've banned both those two anti-Turkey posters. It looked very coordinated to me. Both were using disposable email accounts and their IP addresses did not back up their stories. There was no reason to give them the benefit of the doubt. I have no problem with people sharing some negative experiences, but not when they are untrustworthy like that. I suspect these are big political powers trying to undermine Turkey. And I have no desire ... [Posted by Peter - Mar 17, 18:48]

Google Analytics filters

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 13:18:59 GMT

I have been seeing some odd stuff on the Analytics plug in for my blogos lately so I have been deactivating filters to try to isolate the issue. Today, without any filters (except for my own IP & the one to stop known bots & spiders) I see that there have been 55 views of the page title = That is very funny .. they even say they are spammers & that they are Russian .. not hard to ...

A brief guide on how to use Travellerspoint's blog editor

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 12:47:49 GMT

I've had quite a few questions over the years on how to insert photos in blog entries, or do some blog entry formatting. I decided it was about time to write a short article explaining what those little icons are above the text editor. This way, I have somewhere I can point people to when the question arises next. So here is my article explaining the blogging icons Feel free to ask any questions in this forum t ... [Posted by Peter - Mar 14, 04:47]

Editing a Trip Report

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 16:18:19 GMT

I am still struggling with photos. So I have tried adding the text and then Publishing and then adding the photos later. This results in two copies of that entry. Question 1: How can I edit a Published report to add photos and have it save over itself instead of making a new one? Question 2: I wanted to have an intro and two blog accounts (two separate visits) and I can't seem to get ... [Posted by greatgrandmaR - Mar 10, 08:18]


Fri, 10 Mar 2017 15:51:08 GMT

I am frustrated. I am trying very hard to figure out my way around this website but I keep coming into blank walls. For instance: I have a trip planned for May and I booked the hotels in January before I joined here. I didn't book them through because if I did that I won't accumulate points for a free stay. To get that perk, I have to book through the main hotel website. One hotel I'm ... [Posted by greatgrandmaR - Mar 10, 07:51]

One blog or many?

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 09:08:52 GMT

When I joined TP and started my blog, it was before Peter made it possible to migrate VT content here. A few other VTers joined around the same time as I did, but many more did so subsequently when that possibility came about, naturally. At the time of joining I remember asking whether I should have one continuous blog or start a new one for each trip, and the then-sensible advice from long term members here was that it's best ...

Blog or trip report

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 23:08:30 GMT

I have done part of a blog about a trip I took in 2002 on a canal boat. I did this one because someone asked a question about a cruise in Scotland. I wanted to try a different trip. But when I go to start it, I am told that I have to have a URL, and if I put in my membername, I am told it is already in use. So my question is - Can to ...

New Forum idea = Postcards.

Tue, 07 Mar 2017 11:52:54 GMT

Suggestion .. Have a new forum section called ‘Postcards’ or ‘Wish you were here’ or ‘Hello from ??’ or some such. The forum allows for :- Only photos. One photo post per member in any 24 hour period. Only photos taken within the past 24 hours .. so photo must have a date & time Only photos with a location In the photo caption .. Only 10 words of text or a max number of characters perhaps. The photo disappears 24 hours after posting but remain in ... [Posted by hasbeen - Mar 07, 03:52]

Friends' activity

Sat, 04 Mar 2017 16:04:29 GMT

I know there are all sorts of plans afoot to add new features - thank you :) If it doesn't sound too greedy, something I would love to see introduced is a much more obvious way of knowing what friends have been up to since my last visit. I know I can see this if I go to my friends list and then click the link near the top, but that's not very "in your face" and also once I ... [Posted by ToonSarah - Mar 04, 08:04]

Exporting your TravelPod Content

Sat, 04 Mar 2017 06:04:19 GMT

With TravelPod now announcing their imminent closur, I will probably be making another script to help import that to Travellerspoint. Our structure here should fit the content easily. I hope we can provide a good new place for Travelpod members to continue their blogging in a travel community. If you are one of these Travelpod members looking to export your data, please register your interest here so that I have an idea of how many people want this and ...

Mapped photos linked to travel plan?

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 21:41:02 GMT

Using 'show all photos' .. on My Profile page, I click on the mapping link beside a photo & i arrive at the travel guide page for that country. My expectation is to go to my photos of the country & I feel sure it was doing that a short while ago. Is the change to the travel guide intentional? Steve ... [Posted by hasbeen - Mar 02, 13:41]

Shared blogs - is that possible?

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 09:24:43 GMT

Hello all, from a newbie (one of the VT refugees), I have a question (oops, what else), and forgive me if it was covered already somewhere. I still have to find my way through how TP works. Kathrin(E) told me that it might be possible to write shared blogs. I mean one blog where many can contribute. How does this work? Can I start one already, or am I too new for this (still budding member). And: if it is possible, how would I do ... [Posted by Trekki - Mar 02, 01:24]

Email alerts for new posts

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 19:32:38 GMT

Is there are reason why part way through today I appear to have stopped getting email alerts when someone posts in a forum thread to which I've subscribed? I've spotted new posts in several threads while browsing but have not been notified about them through email. I can't see where I look on the site to see if my preferences have somehow changed, but I do still seem to be subscribed to the threads as I'm offered an "unsubscribe" option! ...

Meet up suggestions

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 07:14:59 GMT

I have only ever been on one meet up through TP & there was only two of us so I have no idea how they usually work. So .. Here are some of my thoughts about how Meet-Ups on TP might be arranged.. Have a drop down from the forum or some new place .. with a template that has tick boxes etc.. WHERE On the template, the person suggesting a Meet ( the Original Poster ) enters Country & Place ..
