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]

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]

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]

Photos which show in the wrong country

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 20:49:56 GMT

I have mapped my photos and am looking to correct mistakes. I go from My Profile because the photos are bigger and easier for me to see. So after I looked at my photos of Caribbean Netherlands (Bonaire), I did a Search on Photos (in the top search box) for photos of Bonaire - I have only 40 photos at this location and I thought I would look to see what other people had. I got 573 photos of Bonaire, and some of ... [Posted by greatgrandmaR - Sep 16, 12:49]

I am in Rome and my blog is being read by friends and family back in Australia and they are all having difficulty commenting on it. Two people have managed to send a comment each but when they tried to do more it doesn't work. I have used this blog before and had no problem like this. Can anyone help? ...

Trouble Uploading Photos

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 21:35:57 GMT

As a new user, feeling very frustrated trying to upload photos for my travel blog. Using an older iPad. Photos are all in my Photo Libray. Aurigma is suddenly not allowing me to upload any more photos as of last night. Was working ok before if I uploaded them one at a time. Now when I select a photo after opening Aurigma, the Upload button at the bottom of the page is greyed out and then the whole program quits. ... [Posted by Jenniferklm - Sep 13, 13:35]

Mapping not working

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 14:54:37 GMT

I think I have about 97% of my VT photos mapped. But several times when I have been working on them, the map refused to locate the photo. That is, I would type a location into the box and no matching location would come up. Even when I put a large location like the USA, I wouldn't get any kind of pin that I could move around, or lat/lon It happened again last night about midnight EDT (which ...

Missing captions on my blog photos

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 20:38:40 GMT

I finished my blog on viewing the eclipse and noticed that there are no captions when I put one of my photos into the blog. My Japan blog has all the captions I wrote for each blog photo. Is this problem because of the HTTPS switch? Thanks, Mike [ Eclipse blog ... [Posted by vegasmike6 - Sep 05, 12:38]

Updating to HTTPS

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 07:38:20 GMT

Hi everyone, I just wanted to let you know about a fairly large update that will be happening over the next couple of weeks. The entire site will switch to be on https rather than http. I'm starting the transition in the blogs as it's a somewhat smaller job doing that. You shouldn't really notice anything particularly different apart from that the browser will redirect you to the https protocol for your blog. So will become https://peter.travellerspoint ...

Travel Planner

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 05:00:57 GMT

I have a great Travel Planner put together for an upcoming trip. I have been working on it on my laptop. I tried to access it on my smart phone today and I can't get to it. The access on TP is very limited on the phone, i.e. Forum, blog, accommodation. How do I get to the Travel Planner on the phone? I'm sure not going to carry my laptop around all day . . . :( Any help will be ... [Posted by Beausoleil - Aug 27, 21:00]

Log-In Timing Out; Losing Blog Entries

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 21:15:57 GMT

Twice today I have lost entire portions of my blog entries, as I have been timed out of Travellerspoint. At some point, the system is automatically logging me out. I've learned this as I've gone to "save blog" and then it kicks me to the log-in screen, meaning that I've lost my entry. What's most aggravating is that the autosave is turned on, but I've still lost two entire entries. Does anyone know how to disable to the ... [Posted by NellieVA - Aug 25, 13:15]

Route display

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 22:25:30 GMT

I noticed that the route between my first couple of stops follows streets and roads, but the remaining majority of stops are joined by "hops". How can I, if possible, make the entire trip's stops follow directly roads and streets? Thank you very much, -centaur1129 ... [Posted by Centaur1129 - Aug 20, 14:25]

Blocked member Piglet44

Piglet44 has been blocked when she tried to make her first blog post. She must have inadvertently done something that isn't allowed, we think. I've messaged Peter (yesterday) but unusually for him he hasn't yet picked it up. Does anyone know if there's someone else who can help or do we need to wait for Peter to sort it? ...

Address book?

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 05:25:41 GMT

Hi all, I've just migrated across from TravelPod where there was the facility to compile a list of friends' email addresses to notify when a new entry was published. I've searched hard but can't find anything similar here. I've also searched for myself when logged out but can't find me, so wonder whether I'm missing something. Do friends need to sign up to follow me? (Not all of them have Facebook...) Cheers, JB ... [Posted by jbushie - Aug 09, 21:25]

Adding a location to the main map

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 19:11:18 GMT

Apologies if directions for how to do this is somewhere on the site but I can't find it. I'm trying to add some pins to locations I've been to on my map and I can't seem to add one for the Horseshoe Canyon unit of Canyonlands National Park in Utah. It's a small area that's detached from the Island in the Sky and Needles units, and isn't showing on the U.S. map. That one is significant for possibly the most important ...
