Security blocks

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 16:36:24 GMT

I've had great problems getting into TP today as my browser (Chrome) is unhappy with the security settings. I thought it was just me and my PC set-up but I've learned from a friend, Grete, that she's having the same problem using different browsers - Firefox and Edge. So it seems to be a wider issue. Has anyone else had problems? Is there something amiss with the site? ... [Posted by ToonSarah - Dec 07, 08:36]

Adding past trips to my map

Sat, 02 Dec 2017 17:04:06 GMT

I'm trying to decide if it would be a good idea to try to add past trips to my travel map here. On the one hand, I like the idea of having a (more) complete record, and when I come to make use of my imported Virtual Tourist tips it would be nice to be able to attach them to a trip. On the other hand, it will be quite a lot of work, and for many of them I ... [Posted by ToonSarah - Dec 02, 09:04]

Travelpod Import not working? Still awaiting import.

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 16:12:00 GMT

Hi all, I've tried emailing "contact us" twice now but not getting any response to my problem which is that I want to import my blogs from Travelpod. I've followed the instructions as found in but this has been sitting for 2 weeks now as being in a queue and not run. Does anyone know how often it runs or how to get it run? I'm keen to get my old blogs in and use this site for future ... [Posted by zoebuck - Nov 29, 08:12]

Travel diary

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 19:49:16 GMT

I was looking around the various things further down the control panel, where I rarely stray! One thing that caught my eye was the link to Personal Travel Cards. We used to have something on these lines on VT and I found them useful, so I thought I'd investigate. This does indeed look like a similarly useful idea and I'll print a few out before I next go away. But what is the Your Diary thing at the end? I ... [Posted by ToonSarah - Nov 23, 11:49]

Uploading from Apple photo library

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 23:41:42 GMT

I am new to the site, looking to create a blog of our river cruise this summer. All pictures were taken by iPhone and are in the a Apple photo library. Clicking upload always takes me to my old library on Microsoft. Copying all the pictures to a Microsoft library makes no sense. Looking for what I hope is an easy solution. ...

Trip Map

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 03:17:46 GMT

I am trying to show two plane trips - one from BWI to LAX and the other one a return 2 plus weeks later. No matter what I do, the first trip appears as a road trip following the roads rather than either a curved or straight line. Sometimes I can get the second trip to be a curved line but now it has disappeared altogether. ... [Posted by greatgrandmaR - Nov 16, 19:17]

Map issues, Newcastle

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 18:56:27 GMT

Just wondering why the map insists on identifying a location clearly pinned to the north bank of the Tyne, in Newcastle, as Gateshead, which is on the south bank?! And is there anything I can do to correct this? ... [Posted by ToonSarah - Nov 16, 10:56]

Finding a photo

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 16:34:57 GMT

I now have 16,912 photos on TravellersPoint, most of which were transferred from Virtual Tourist but some added more recently, mainly relating to travels since VT closed. As I add blog entries relating to historic travels previously described on VT, or when the new boards are introduced and I want to illustrate them, I have the option of using the stored VT images or uploading again from my computer. The former avoids duplication (of which I already have too much!) ... [Posted by ToonSarah - Nov 09, 08:34]

Unexpected results with forum search date limitation

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 18:29:32 GMT

I just searched the forums for threads about Rome from last week (since some recent spam looked very familiar, and I wanted to see if it was identical, and by the same username, or a duplicate account), and the 35 results include threads with a last update from 2006. Something is off with the date calculation there... (All replies from that first thread were from July and August 2006, so it's not that the year part of the date is ign ...

Updating a blog by email

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 19:39:19 GMT

I just tried to update my blog by sending an email ( to the address which was provided in 'Settings'). Used my Ipad to send the email and checking for the update on my computer. It has not yet appeared ... does it take awhile to appear? There are a couple of photos in it. Thanks for any help. ... [Posted by barb3389 - Nov 02, 11:39]


Thu, 02 Nov 2017 09:02:17 GMT

I've written a couple of short blogs (just because I thought I ought to give it a try) and I've added a few bits to the wikipages (but nothing earth-shattering). Neither of these are going to generate millions in advertising revenue and I'm not bothered about collecting any of the revenue generated myself. I haven't signed up for Adsense - I'm not sure my generic e-mail address would pass muster. Does somebody know if the generated revenue ... [Posted by Borisborough - Nov 02, 01:02]

Photo gallery not letting me delete photos

Hi, I have been trying to delete photos from my gallery that I have already used in my blog but nothing happens after I choose "confirm" to delete them....I'd like to get rid of pictures I've already used otherwise I have to load all of my 4000 plus photos (instead of the first 50)...

Printing View

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 10:37:36 GMT

I deselect 'Show links' for printing but they are still present when printed. This happens both directly printed or saved as a PDF. I want to pass my Itinerary on to a friend but I don't want the links showing as there could be an inadvertent modification made to our trip. Does anyone know how to prevent links showing but still leave the Bookmark headings Cheers in advance ... [Posted by petertn - Oct 23, 02:37]

Travel blog email verification

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 19:14:09 GMT

Hi folks, I am desperately trying to start my travel blog yet I keep being asked to submit a request for a verification email but it never arrives in my inbox (nor junk). I have used the Contact Us facility twice to request help but so far no response. I’m so excited about creating my blog for a whole year of travelling and heard that this site is the best. Any advice on how I can get ... [Posted by Tread - Oct 22, 11:14]

Automatic zoom out on map can it be stopped?

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 05:26:27 GMT

I'm mapping out some of my past travel routes and I have noticed that everytime I want to make a change to the points listed the map will automatically zoom out to world view, so I have to continually zoom back in so I can edit my points. Even if I click on a point instead of zooming into the point it zooms out to world view. I'm wondering is there a setting I need to switch off or on ... [Posted by Teoni - Oct 21, 21:26]

deleting a trip in planner

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 20:26:44 GMT

I am adding new trips but wanted to change the order of them to reflect the order in which I plan to do them. As there didnt seem to be a way to do that - I thought I would simply delete the one which is in the wrong place and recreate it which would effectively move it. I cant see how to delete it though. I found a thread saying you can delete or edit a pot in "map view" ... [Posted by twoplusfour - Oct 18, 12:26]

Hi, I have loads of pictures on travellerspoint which I was hoping to save on my phone to get printed out. Can anyone please let me know how I can get the pictures back without screen shotting them as it damages the focus on the picture. Thanks, Milly ... [Posted by Millypaulrtw - Oct 14, 01:14]

TP Meetups

Sat, 14 Oct 2017 07:48:21 GMT

Questions for Peter - TP Meetups and Miscellaneous Forum. TP Meetps - This has been asked before... and I know that you are currently extremely busy arranging updates to our home pages and I am really looking forward to this more 'personalised' improvement to the site. As you know a lot of members from Virtual Tourist came here to TP looking for a new home. Most of us are experienced travellers who have a lot to offer TP and we have already ...

Titles on photos

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 19:38:28 GMT

I'm having difficulty posting a title to my photos that are posted as regular size. If i post a Thumbnail within the blog when they're clicked on for a bigger view the title comes up but not on the Regular size photos. I tried to look for an answer but no luck yet. Am I missing something or is this not possible? Thanks ... [Posted by bushmantours - Oct 11, 11:38]

Types of members

Email alerts for comments on my blogs

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 16:47:02 GMT

In the last few days I've had a few comments on my blogs (specifically my California Road Trip one ( but not had the usual email alert. I like to reply to everyone who comments so I'm concerned at missing things. I can't see anything that's gone awry in my settings but maybe someone can suggest things I should double-check? And has anyone else had this problem? ... [Posted by ToonSarah - Sep 29, 08:47]

Travel Maps

Tue, 26 Sep 2017 08:45:03 GMT

I'm not sure whether it's because of the format update or not but it looks like members' travel maps now show up below the list of trips rather than in thr rectangle to the right of the list as it used to do. I'm assuming it's a glitch that needs to be sorted. ... [Posted by Borisborough - Sep 26, 00:45]

Can You Clone One of Your Blogs?

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 17:52:21 GMT

I am attempting to convert one of my blogs into a book, using IntoRealPages. They are, however, unable to generate a book, and I suspect it is because my photos are too large. I was hoping to clone my existing blog, and then change the photo sizes for the cloned blog. I do not want to alter my "master" blog on TravellersPoint. Does anyone know if this is possible and, if so, how to do it? ... [Posted by NellieVA - Sep 23, 09:52]

Bigger Print?

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 04:08:59 GMT

Is it possible to select a larger typeface in the blogs, other than zooming the page? I can read the typing here in the Forums, but I just can't see it in the blogs when they are published. Also is it possible to have the map go back to the place where I started? I'd like it to return to the start and I can't seem to make it do that. ... [Posted by greatgrandmaR - Sep 22, 20:08]
