    Photo upload bug from Photo Library

    by pieter_jan_v Online Now Mar 29, 2014 at 1:44 AM

    Using XP (still) with Google Chrome I still have this photo upload bug:

    When I upload from a library location that has more pages open (so more than 98 pictures in view) to a forum reply, the picture will be uploaded several times.

    Now, there is a red cross in the uploaded picture that I can use for deleting the surplus repeated photo's, but when I post my answer, that deletion does not work for the last picture.

    One for the technical staff (first create some 500 pictures on a location to test this and use All Locations and Unused photo's before the upload).

    As a snowball effect all these multiple repeated photo's also appear in my total photo overview pieter_jan_v's Photos that is cluttered enough (try to see my first published pictures there).

    Why do only grouped tips appear?

    by Rabbityama Online Now Mar 25, 2014 at 10:13 PM

    It seems that guides with a significant number of Grouped tips no longer show ungrouped tips on the page. Why is that and can that please be fixed?

    For example, Kyoto' 'Things to Do' section:
    Kyoto Things to Do

    The tips that appear are the groups I created, but none of the ungrouped tips can be accessed, and I know for a fact that there are many good tips that are inaccessible.

    It seems counterproductive to hide ungrouped tips as it discourages the creation of tips that are ungrouped and also discourages the creation of groups altogether for any group editor who doesn't want to see tips 'disappear' from the page.

    The Okayama "Things to Do" page contains the Grouped tips first followed by the ungrouped tips:
    Okayama Things to Do

    Kyoto and all other pages should follow that model for the sake of the traveler and the writers who take the time to write about new and interesting places. Many times those are much more interesting finds and are one of VTs greatest strengths. Why hide them?

  • I really must be dumb trying to figure this out through Virtual Tourist!!!!!!

    by Lary1047 Online Now Mar 23, 2014 at 1:01 PM

    OK!! I need information about buying a phone here in the U.S. and using it in Europe. I want to make calls in both France and Italy for reservations and use the Google maps, I thought it sounded somewhat easy. Rather than posting this question, I felt I was not the only person that has needed this info. Sometimes people don't take the time to search out or query the question, they just ask it, then they find out it was asked many many times.

    I did a search on my question and received 8,329 responses. I thought great!! However the dates were back from 2008 and I wanted the most recent so I did the sort date. Problem is then I got every question about everything that was recently asked in the technical forum, but my information from my initial search disappeared ?????

    Could someone give me direction, as to how to get the information I asked about buying a cell phone.

    I just recently started with Virtual Tourist, the people are great and the information is top notch. However using this system and trying to find documentation on how to do certain things is Very Very Trying and frustrating at times.

    Thanks

    Video Will Not Upload?

    by briantravelman Online Now Mar 28, 2014 at 6:31 PM

    I've been uploading videos for the past few days and haven't had any problems. I tried to upload one today, and it won't let me. It will go to 100%, than give me a message that there is something wrong with my server.

    I don't have a page for that location. Could that be why? Because when I upload, it shows the city in my list, but not in my travel pages. All the other videos I upload I have pages for that location, so could that be the problem?
    But I clicked "Create" next to San Francisco, and it shows there is a video there, but it is not showing up in my videos, or in the San Francisco videos. I moved it to United States, and still nothing.
    The video is deffinately under 300 MB, and is WMV, I am 100% sure, so that isn't the problem.

    Do I need to make a page for the location before uploading the video?

    I will try uploading another video to another location I don't have a page on, to see if it's the file, or something else.

    Adjusting margins in Messages on VT

    by alza Online Now Apr 15, 2014 at 10:37 AM

    I recently noticed that all Messages I write to other VT members adjust the right margin as "block" style, cutting words automatically without following acceptable word division rules. This makes my Messages very difficult for me to read, revise, correct, etc.

    I didn't go into Settings at all for anything in months so I doubt that it's something I did that changed the appearance of my Messages (this only started appearing or only became apparent to me last week.)

    Is there anything I *can* do to have the right margin free from "block style" in Messages? Thanks in advance for any suggestion!

    It's the weirdest thing---when I try to answer a question on the forums the screen goes grey in the usual way but the expected field for the answer doesn't appear, and my back and forward buttons are disabled so I just have to close the page and start over. I can get to a usable answer field by going to the OP's homepage and opening their recent activity, but that's a cumbersome work-around. This started a few days ago when I installed adblock for Firefox, but uninstalling adblock hasn't helped and neither does using a different browser.
