I noticed a couple of times that when I entered a secure hyperlink (https) in my text using VTML, the outcome when you click on that link becomes http/https, resulting in the link not working.
Can this be fixed?
The present workaround is to just use http in stead of https, but IMHO https should work.
I would like to know how to delete a tip.
The reason I want to delete it is because I created an almost-duplicate of a tip.
The reason that happened is because when building the tip the first time, when I went to save the tip after uploading pics, I got an ERROR page, and when I used the BACK arrow, I got a blank tip template and thought I had LOST the lot, and so started again....
Then after building and saving the tip the second time, I noticed the FIRST one is already there!
I cannot see a DELETE tip button.... Maybe I am blind ....
Is there any way to enlarge the size of the font on VT website? I had my annual eye test at Boots Chemists last year and the nice lady optician in her short mini-skirt said my eyes are fine but I might find it easier to read small print by wearing No 2 corrective reading spectacles, so off I went to Poundland and bought the necessary glasses but I can normally manage without them, except for ultra-small type, (is it my imagination or are typesetters deliberately shrinking type in a cunning plan in collusion with opticians and their sales outlets to sell more spectacles?)
An additional annoyance is this greyscale typeset, this seems to be more and more common nowadays, especially in newsprint, I can read much better in the old-fashioned darker typeset, and no problem at all if I wear my spectacles, but they steam up when I'm eating my dinner and reading simultaneously. I can enlarge the font on other website pages by fiddling around with the + in the O circle thingy at the top right-hand corner of the page, but not here.
How do I delete a question I asked?
Are the photos we upload to VT are protected from being copied.
I have written some tips about typical foods of some cities/countries, such as cannoli for our Catania page, or Schiatt for our Tirano page, or Festivals or Ackee and Saltfish for our Jamaica page.
So far, I have usually classified them either as Local Customs (as they are a customary, local dish/delicacy/specialty), or Favourites/Favorites. Though food, I have not included them in a restaurant tip (some may be home cooked meals or street vendor food in any case).
I want to be consistent. I realise from reading maurizioago's question and the answers to it, about transferring a tip from one category to another, it is not possible.
I am wondering if other people do tips on local cuisines/foods/specialties and what category they use.
Or is there a Local Food/Specialty Cuisine category in the pipeline?
How can I be sure when forwarding items on g-mail that I have not included previous email addresses...it does not work as easily as Thunderbird where I have no problem....in fact when I press forward and try the delete other email addresses (trying to send safe emails) sometimes the content does not arrive at the new address.
And the name of the person who sends it to me goes as well....which I am trying to avoid simply.
(I have sent to myself so I know )
I use g-mail to keep all the articles and utube stuff and adds from businesses separate from my personal email address
You all know what I mean....someone sends you an email of beautiful scenery or jokes...or something on u tube and you are part of their group email ....which I hate if it is not undisclosed recipients.
You end up with 20 email addresses of people you do not know....
But you want to forward it to someone else without all the extra email addresses I do have guidelines on "How to send safe emails" which works with my Big Pond address which I forward with Thunderbird....no problem
But I do not want to use Thunderbird because then I get all this sort of "stuff" coming into my private account...clutter clutter
But with g-mail trying to forward without all the email addresses confuses me ....
I've been having trouble getting my reply text out of the quote box. Before, I could click my cursor at the end of the quote and hit "enter" to get out of the quote box. Now, it pushes the quote down with it and adds new blank quote boxes at the top of the screen with each touch of "enter." On the desktop, I can click my cursor outside of the quote box and be careful NOT to hit "enter" while replying (if I do, my reply jumps back inside the quote box and the effects above occur). On the iPad, there doesn't appear to be any work around.

That's how she wrote it for me, but IDK if the letters are case sensitive or not. I heard it doesn't matter if it's lowercase, or upper case, but in this case, the name part is lower case, and the rest is upper case, accept for one letter. This may be a stupid question, but I have no idea how I should enter it. I'm not a computer whiz. Should I just enter it as she wrote it, or wrote it all in lowercase?
My tablet has switched me from the VT Home page and now has only script. How do I get back my home page that says welcome with the photos of members holdkng up thr VT Flag?
If I export my Travel Map from here using the HTML code does that mean that my map will update in its new location whenever I add anything to it here on VT?
I have noticed recently that a number of my travel pages have been split into smaller pages but not by me. For example, my page on Palau has now been dissected and two of my tips now feature on a Koror page that I have not created. This is not the only instance, my Goa page has a tip moved onto a Candolim page that I have not created; my Bali page has had a tip put onto a Sanur page that I have not created and now my Conway page has had a tip moved to a North Conway page that again I have not created. I would like to move my tips back to where I put them in the first place. Is it possible to do this easily and how can I prevent any more of my tips from being moved?
I am receiving global questions in abundance each day on my gmail mobile phone. I have no knowledge on the places so am I able to attain a cessation of the alerts
Hi fellow travelers,

Is it possible to move a tip from "must do" category to "favorite"? Do have I to re write these tips?
Hi there. How do I delete all the posts (which I've read) from the 'latest activity' site?
How do I change my email address? I went to my 'Profile' but couldn't see anywhere to do that.
Your advice appreciated.
I have been working on this for a few hours and cannot seem to fathom it out. i have just purchased a new computer which uses windows 8. As usual i uploaded my photos, then using photo studio i rotated the ones so that they were in the correct position. In my windows photo library they are in the correct position but when i upload them to my VT tips they have been rotated back to their original positions. I did not have this problem with windows 7.
I managed to upload them to the VT photo library and rotated them from there before adding them to my tips but this is rather laborious.
Anyone can figure out the solution? Thanks!
Why are cities broken up this way?
Asia > India > State of Rajasthan > Jodhpur
Asia > India > Jodhpur
They should be combined so all tips are together.
Tried to put in a date of January 2015 as my last visit date and error message "date too late" came up.
How to add a restaurant you visited in a city that's not listed?
I tried to message someone earlier with a concern I had regarding a forum reply they made. I copied and pasted their forum reply as part of my message. When I clicked on "SEND" nothing happened. Re-clicking on "SEND" gave me the pop-up, "Please wait until your last message is sent."
So I closed the pop-up box and pressed "SEND" again and got the same pop-up.
Has anyone else come across this?
Hello, I am not sure if this has been repeported already: The bigger photos in the travel guides overview are kind of cropped and crushed. When the travel guide loads the photo will be displayed for a second or so properly but then switches to a stange cropped and crused version. This doesn't look very professional and invisiting to me. Does anyone else see these photos properly?
I have uploaded one example from the Bihac travel guide. On the right you see a small thunb of how the photo actually should look.
Any help is very much appreciated.
I'm getting PMs from a new member who doesn't know how to ask questions in the Travel Forum. I've explained it multiple times, but he/she can't seem to figure it out. I do notice the box sometimes defaults to "answer," and you have to click on the "Ask" tab. I also notice there is nothing about the Travel Forums in VT's Help section. Would it be possible to add something in "Help" and/or add hints on hover to help new members learn how to post their questions?
Trying to edit my review. Thanks.
Once again, I keep getting intrusion detections from adware site tumri.net when I'm on VT. It doesn't happen on any other website I visit, with the possible exception of Trip Advisor. It happens mostly when I'm in the Travel Guides, but I also just got one visiting a member's main page. Any ideas?
I've decided to quit Facebook. But I'd like to continue those friendships. Is there a way that I can select my VT friends and say HI!. Let's chat on VT instead?
I am attempting to add reviews from my recent visit to Iligan City, Philippines. When I try to enter " Iligan City " on the select a city part of the review form, it does not seem to enter and I can not go any further. I have tried for several days but no luck. From reading this forum there have been other problems with this website ?
