Hi, I would like to share my travel map with my friends, and I have used the link the website provides. https://secure.travellerspoint.com/member_map.cfm?user=Mme Bicyclette
But all my friends see is a world map with no itinerary. Even if they click on 'map' or 'mme' there is nothing to see. What can I do?

I can see it so my guess is that your friends need to be members of TP .. ask one to join & see if that person can then see your map.

Great trip by the way .. Hope you enjoy Myanmar. I seem to be spending half my life there lately.

There is no need to be a member to see a map. The problem is probably with the space in your name. If you send this link to people: https://secure.travellerspoint.com/member_map.cfm?user=Mme Bicyclette, most email clients will stop interpreting the link at the space, giving them this link instead: https://secure.travellerspoint.com/member_map.cfm?user=Mme. We also have a user with username Mme, who has never created a map, and so that link show the empty map of user Mme.

To fix it, give your friends a link with the space in your username encoded, namely: https://secure.travellerspoint.com/member_map.cfm?user=Mme%20Bicyclette

You can also just link to the trip directly with this link:

That will avoid the space issue entirely :)

Thanks everyone!
The space was indeed the problem.
