Sorting photos by country

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 21:10:26 GMT

Just a quick question about how to sort my photos by country. I'm one of the many who have transferred hundreds of photos from VT (thanks for making that possible btw), and am now trying to sort them. I've been adding many to the map and saving their locations, but apparently this doesn't save country information, neither does adding tags. On the "My Photos" page, there is the option to filter the photos according to country, but when I click ... [Posted by maykal - Feb 25, 13:10]

Deleting photos

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 15:44:17 GMT

VT Newbie here.... I just ran through all of the photos I uploaded to T.P. and marked 150 or so I wanted to get rid of (checked the boxes beside them. ) But when I hit the master delete key, it took me to sign-in box, even though I was already signed in. OK, so I signed in again and to the main page and I lost it all. It has happened to me twice. I'm probably screwing this up ... [Posted by goodfish - Feb 24, 07:44]

Suggestion .. Show tags for photos

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 03:47:55 GMT

When I go to from a persons profile page to 'More Photos' it brings me to a good looking page to see photos .. with the ability to see photos in a stream .. & with a nice list of countries to select from. If I then choose a country . .e.g Myanmar . .. my Myanmar photos .. I then can further filter by choosing one of the tags, e.g buidings, but that ... [Posted by hasbeen - Feb 23, 19:47]

Mapping your Photos

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 02:37:56 GMT

With such a large influx of photos currently, I thought it would be worth running through the best way of mapping them all so they can be correctly organised into country galleries. The process I would recommend is as follows. # Click on the 'Map' item in the main navigation # Click on "Photos". (or just use this link to take you straight there). You should now see a list of thumbnails on the left hand side of a world map. The ... [Posted by Peter - Feb 22, 18:37]

Wiki Tips are not like Tips

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 21:12:56 GMT

Hi. I asked about the possibility of writing Tips in another thread and using the Wiki Travel Guides was suggested to me. Yesterday I did a restaurant Tip on one of your Wiki Travel Guides and quite frankly, it isn't like doing your own Tips. I want to be able to put my own photos on it. I do not want other people to be able to edit my writing or add their photos. I want it to be obvious ... [Posted by Beausoleil - Feb 20, 13:12]

E-Mail address has caused bounces

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 10:28:24 GMT

For the last few days I've seen a red exclamation mark symbol at the top right end of my TP pages, mentioning that my email address has caused bounces and needs to be updated and that all notifications to this email address have been stopped. Can anyone explain what this means? The email I entered was verified and seemed to work at the beginning, and I've checked the spam folder regularly so that it shouldn't stop TP from sending messages ...

Map problem

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 05:24:26 GMT

I'm trying to do maps to go with my blogs. I put in a few places between, for instance Nice and Avignon, and the map puts me on the AutoRoute. We studiously avoid the AutoRoute and use the back roads to go through the towns and villages. This is not reflected in your map. Is there a way, like Google, where you can pull the route to the road you really took rather than the one they think you should ... [Posted by Beausoleil - Feb 18, 21:24]

Anyone having trouble posting blog entries the last two days? I tried twice yesterday & twice today .. it says it was successfully published but when I click ' view entry I get = Server error. 404 - File or directory not found.

Promotion question

Tue, 07 Feb 2017 16:18:00 GMT

Hello! I'm new here, read forum's rule, but still not sure can I write about my campaign. -snip- I read the rules and it says: 2. NO postings for promotional purposes are permitted. If the postings are genuine responses to questions, we will permit them. Any website postings that look like they are only there to promote a website rather than help other members will be removed. and We hope you understand the need to implement these rules and feel that these forums are ...

Hello. Would it be possible to add these features to the Blogs? * Notify the owner of a blog that someone has subscribed. * Have a list somewhere of 'blogs I have subscribed to' - I have some bookmarked but it would be nice to see a list. * on the manage subscribers page ..

Exporting your VT content

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 00:24:39 GMT

I would love some feedback from the VTers on Travellerspoint. I've been looking into creating some code to help you export content from your Virtual Tourist account. While we don't have a like-for-like replacement for the tips format (at the moment), I could still import it into a database for you to have access to it beyond the shutdown of VT. Creating a Tips feature to more closely mirror what VT offered would be interesting anyway and potentially integrate nicely ... [Posted by Peter - Feb 02, 16:24]

Change to login link in top navigation

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 02:55:14 GMT

Hey everyone, I'm sure some of you will notice there is a small change to how the login link works in the top navigation. Previously you were able to log in from a small form that could be loaded on any page of the site. Unfortunately, that old method is not considered secure, because most of our site is not on https and your password would be transmitted over http . It would have also started to cause warnings ...

Inappropriate forum posts

Sun, 29 Jan 2017 17:05:03 GMT

Forgive me if this is obvious - I'm still finding my way around here. But is there any way for a more "junior" member to flag up an inappropriate post for another more established member to review and delete/block? Or do we have to just hope someone with those powers spots it? Someone has posted in the thread about how safe it is to travel in India ( in a way I consider offensive to Indians and inaccurate in terms ... [Posted by ToonSarah - Jan 29, 09:05]

Many posts removed/under review

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 07:07:08 GMT

As a new TP member I am rather confused as to the large number of posts that seem to be removed or under review/flagged. This happened to me on my very first forum post, for no apparent reason, and none has been subsequently given. This makes me rather reluctant to participate here, for fear of being blocked. I am a polite, respectful contributor. I try not to break the rules and I am certainly not a spammer. So can someone please ... [Posted by piglet44 - Jan 25, 23:07]

Flagging Posts for Deleting

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 22:03:25 GMT

This is really for Sander or Peter but I'll post it anyway. As 'respected members' we can flag a post for possible deleting if it falls under any one of three possible categories: Promotional, Repeated, Derogatory. I'd like to propose several more categories if I may: Irrelevant - the message is irrelevant to the original post (obviously) Boring - the post is an obvious rant about something (and probably irrelevant too) and nobody would really want to read it [b]Prat[/ ...
