Quoting Peter

With TravelPod now announcing their imminent closur, I will probably be making another script to help import that to Travellerspoint.

Our structure here should fit the content easily. I hope we can provide a good new place for Travelpod members to continue their blogging in a travel community.

If you are one of these Travelpod members looking to export your data, please register your interest here so that I have an idea of how many people want this and also so you can be easily notified when the script is ready!

In the meanwhile feel free to play around with our blogging platform and let me know of any key differences that you think TP needs to improve on.

Peter

Yes but how ?

How to migrate your content? See the thread TravelPod is closing. Here's what to do.... In short, there's an external backup tool - TravelArk.org - which will make a backup, and will later allow an export to travellerspoint (it sounds like this still needs a few more weeks of work).

How to let Peter know which blogging features here to improve on? Ideally by creating a new thread in the System Talk forum for each improvement you'd like to see.

Just a heads up for everyone - I'm still working on the script to pull in the content from Travelark. That will be the best way of going about it, as Ryan has made the process super easy for me by creating that platform. Once my end of the process is done (hopefully quite soon), you should be able to create a blog (or populate an existing one) on Travellerspoint from the content quite quickly.

There will no doubt be some features that we don't have which people liked on Travelpod, so yes please do start new threads about those features, so I can know what to prioritise.

Before I fully commit to this website I would just like to ask a couple of questions

(I'm not sure if this is the right place though)

If I upload each entry will it still have the right date and text I posted on TP? (I have entries going back 15 years)

Is there any limit to how many photos I post?

How do I keep the people that are in my TP address book?

If the contacts in my address book wish to comment, do they have to belong to this website before they can comment?

Is this website connected to Face book ?

Would my blogs be posted on FB?

Well that is a few questions I'd like to know about, so any advice would be appreciated (or the right place to ask these questions

Derrick, the address book that TravelPod kept was just a list of email addresses. They cannot be exported/imported as they are only visible to you. They are located at the bottom of your user profile in the TravelPod-provided archive download.

While I do have your "Favorites" list, it will have little meaning outside of TravelPod/TravelArk because people may have different usernames on differing blog sites.

Also remember that "fully commit" is too strong of a word. If you end up not liking the site you exported to you can export your original set again from TravelArk to somewhere else. It's not a one-time thing.
