Hello TP. Could anyone please explain why my logged travels have disappeared and if there is any way that they can be recovered? Cheers, pete

Logged travels were all converted to trips on the new travel map. There's been one other report so far of those going missing - looks like yours had the same problem. Once Peter or Sam sees this thread, they should be able to restore them for you. Meanwhile I'll go and see if I can track down a cause.

Uhm, no, actually, looking at a DB dump from last month, it looks like they converted right for you, and you then grouped them together into a single trip. Is that correct?
But now that trip is gone... How very weird. The only way that should ever be possible to happen is if you manually deleted the trip from the trip management screen. :/

I just checked the code of every single place where we delete trips to look for possible bugs that could cause trips to be deleted without user input, and that all just works as it should. So, as far as I can imagine, the only way your trip could've disappeared is if someone with access to your computer went to your map management screen, clicked on the delete link after the trip, and then on the delete button. :|

hi sander, looks like i deleted them by mistake. the travel map wasn't doing what i wanted so i deleted the map without realising it would delete my logged travels. grrrrr! ah well, soon be in oz where i'll have time to update all of my last 6 months travels. thanks for looking into it for me. you inadvertently helped me out a lot with my recent choice of camera after i read some of the photography forums. i chose the canon eos400d but as you so well put it in one of your posts there's no need to justify my model purchase!!! i have no idea what i'm doing with it yet as i only bought it yesterday in ho chi minh city! pete

Oh, sorry to hear that. :/ (But glad I helped out with the camera.) :)
I don't know if you made any changes during the last month, but if you'd like I could send you a private message with the text from your travellog entries you'd written up to then, so you can have a flying start with rebuilding.

hey sander, that would really help me out if you could send me the info by pm. what wonders you guys can work with computers! yeah, the camera is great but i think it will take some time to perfect shooting with it!
thanks for all your help, pete
