Help! My latest entry was not saved.

Sun, 21 May 2017 16:57:34 GMT

I pressed save to draft on my latest blog entry and now I can't find it. An earlier part of the entry appears to have been saved but not the latest additions. I tried adding a couple of sentences to the saved part and pressed save to draft again to test it and again no changes were saved. What am I doing wrong? ... [Posted by LeanneR - May 21, 08:57]

We are former users of Travel pod. We have set up a map, but what do we do with the text that we write? How do we upload it? Can someone give us some simple instructions, please ... [Posted by davidandmarion - May 20, 20:19]

Photos being uploaded with the wrong year

Sat, 20 May 2017 00:50:42 GMT

I've been uploading photos for my blogs and for the last two days they are coming up a year short. I took them in 2014 and they are all dated 2013 when I go in to edit and add tags and titles. I didn't even own that particular camera in 2013 not to mention the fact that we were someplace else that year. Is this a glitch of some sort or do I have to keep changing the dates? ...

Using a Photo Stream

Fri, 19 May 2017 07:42:47 GMT

Hello I'm a newbie, so apologies for what might be a 'silly' question... I have a new blog - my entries may have up to 20 photos. I would like my readers to be able to click on a photo and start a 'slideshow' of those photos. I think the feature I should be is the 'stream' option in the photo gallery - however when I click from a blog entry through to pictures, other pictures also come up. I tried tagging my photos, ...

Travellerspoint and Facebook integration ??

Thu, 18 May 2017 16:17:28 GMT

Unless I'm missing something I don't see an easy way to add a Travel map I've created in Travellerspoint to FB. Is this possible ?? I did see a post where someone said you can take a screen print of the map and add it. DUH!! That's NOT the solution I'm looking for... Either this functionality exists or it doesn't. Please advise !! Thanks. ... [Posted by tparsons99 - May 18, 08:17]

TravelPod is closing. Here's what to do...

Tue, 16 May 2017 21:52:04 GMT

TravelPod is closing. I've set up to host the content on the web and provide export options, including to TravellersPoint. I've also been working with Peter to help export accounts from TravelArk to TravellersPoint. Steps: 1) Create TravelArk account 2) Claim your profile so that it gets fully imported from TravelPod 3) Click on the "Manage" button of your profile 4) There are several buttons to flag your interest in several options - Flag for TravellersPoint - marking t ...

Forum entry order

Thu, 11 May 2017 12:47:55 GMT

I've been "fixing" the order of the entries in my blog of past travels by using the date of the travel also as the date of entry (and setting the time carefully if posting several entries for the same day). This has worked fine - until now. I just did a new entry for 5th November 2012 - I dated publication to the 5th but it's showing on my table of contents ([[ ... [Posted by ToonSarah - May 11, 04:47]

Facebook link not working?

Thu, 11 May 2017 01:02:19 GMT

Hi guys, I published 2 new posts last night and neither of them have shown up on Facebook. I thought it might be a timing thing, but still nothing this morning. In my Facebook settings, the activity log for Travellerspoint shows no activity since December, which is correct apart from the 2 new posts. Is there anything I can do? Is there anything you can do? I have 3 more posts queued up, but don't want to publish them ... [Posted by Andrea R - May 10, 17:02]

Inviting TravellersPoint members to a VT meeting

Wed, 03 May 2017 19:01:58 GMT

For some years now the London Calling group of Virtual Tourist (me, jo104 and planxty - all now active here) have organised a Treasure Hunt. This involves small groups of people setting out on a planned route to explore the city and follow clues to get the answers to questions about the sights on the route. This year we would like to invite TravellersPoint friends to join us. Which would be the best forum to post this in? Clearly not ... [Posted by ToonSarah - May 03, 11:01]

ex-VT'ers - Viewing your imported tips and pages

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 03:20:31 GMT

I'm still a while off getting any system up to show the tips / location pages from VT. In the interim, I've made it so you can at least see your imported content on here (and copy/paste do whatever you want with it). But there is some bad news. Unfortunately my import was not as complete as I hoped. The tips imported are not stored linked to their location. I have a crude way of guessing what the most likely ...

In mapping my photos, it occurs to me that there are no subcategories for states. I already have mapped over 2000 photos taken in the USA. It will be impossible to find them without some subcategories or without being able to locate the ones that are on a map location. I can do 300-400 without sub-sections, but not as many as there will be of the USA Is there a reason why I should not tag the photos ... [Posted by greatgrandmaR - Apr 20, 19:08]

New Blogs

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 02:26:20 GMT

I have started writing some new blog entries & have been looking around TP to see if they appear anywhere or if anyone might accidentally find them. I doubt anyone who is not subscribed will ever find them .. searches do not & even if someone were to go to my profile the latest blog entries on there are not the latest entries. It seems to me that unless a blog is featured, peoples blogs remain invisible. Can there ... [Posted by hasbeen - Apr 20, 18:26]

Can the map with a photo become interactive?

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 07:07:39 GMT

Everywhere I have seen a map on TP, in blogs etc, the map has been interactive, except on the photo page .. like here It gives no sense of where in the world the photo was taken because one cannot zoom out. People are going to a lot of trouble to map their photos .. luckily for me, my camera has GPS so & don't need to worry about mapping. Is there anyway those maps could become zoomable ( if that is ...

Adding points of interest, not stop

Sat, 15 Apr 2017 17:30:25 GMT

Is there any way to add a marker for a point of interest but not make it a stop? I want to map some things but not have them as a stop on my trip. I want the stops to be places I stay, and include points of interest. ... [Posted by piwahika - Apr 15, 09:30]

VT-style tip building

Mon, 10 Apr 2017 08:29:28 GMT

Hi again, When I moved here from VT 3 months ago, TP staff said they'd be very interested in integrating a tip building feature on this site like the one we had on VT. I was just wondering how far this idea has progressed? Are there any more definite plans about that? I'm missing tip building very much (and I'm sure the other ex-VTers do so, too). I'd be willing to offer any help concerning ideas on how to design that. Golo ... [Posted by king_golo - Apr 10, 00:29]

Deleting a post

Hi - Is there no way to us to delete our own forum responses ourselves? I've just answered a question that was significantly edited while I was typing and now my response doesn't apply so I'd like to get rid of it. There's probably a delete function somewhere but I can't seem to find it! Thanks in advance for some help! ... [Posted by goodfish - Apr 04, 07:14]
