New Method for downloading your pages.

by Galaxy31 Online Now Feb 16, 2017 at 1:22 PM

For people that haven't downloaded their tips, now is the time to do it as VT has changed and have added an easier way to download our tips.which is quicker.
Go to your travel page and click the edit button on the top which it gives you two options. One to download your entire page or the second one that brakes down to 20 tips a download. This way is very easy for people to download their pages if you haven't done it yet.

    Great! With this new method I was able to download my four largest pages, which kept timing out under the old system. My Paris page, which has 425 reviews and 1850 photos, is now saved in the form of 23 pdf files (in addition to the other ways I had saved it already). Many thanks to whoever programmed this!

    this is wonderful news so it was worth waiting for by the sounds of it! though you have to click on each travel page individually rather than the wget can run all night and day while away or asleep?..but misses a lot of each travel page

    It was Joshua who did that (with Alex I suppose), see here:

    Ah yes but they have added some more options, which is what Galaxy31 is referring to. :-)

    Seems to work well, for a non HTML format. Hope I can get it all done before the 27th.

    Please note that this method produces strange results if you don't have an intro page for a location. If you create just a minimal intro page it works fine.
