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]

Uploading videos

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 01:36:13 GMT

Having problems uploading videos to TP from Vimeo, I keep receiving a page that reads "an unexpected error occurred" after the authorization page allowing TP access. Any suggestions would be appreciated, I am using my android phone as that's where the videos are. Maybe Utube is better? ... [Posted by curlysharon - Apr 05, 17:36]

Search finds deleted forum entries

I did a search for 'New Groups' in forums with this result Many are posts about fake passports etc. which have been removed. It is a bit odd to find things that do not exist. ... [Posted by hasbeen - Apr 05, 06:47]

Deleting a post

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 15:14:54 GMT

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]

Changing the relative position of chapters

Sun, 02 Apr 2017 02:36:59 GMT

I was putting photos into a blog, and I decided that the section I was working on was too long. (BTW is there a limit to the number of photos in a blog section?) So I cut the bottom off and put it in another chapter. But I want the chapters to show up in order. And I can't figure out how to make them do that. I have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,6,7.8. 10, 9 Even if I ...

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]
