Just launched a small new feature that I've been meaning to get up for a while.... Create your own Travel Cards and let others know how they can get a hold of you while you are travelling!

More info in this blog post!

Melbourne, we've got a problem.

There's an error when I tried to open the Travel Card page.

I don't know if this will help you in find out what causes the problem. I saw a crowbar and a martini glass at the scene.

Hmm, I'm not seeing this. Is it upon opening the page? Must be something to do with a pre-generated field. Send me any details you can on PM and I'll look at it in the morning :)

Forget about it; should be fixed now! Stupid mistake :)

Thanks for the heads up; now I can go to bed in peace and quiet!

Yup, it works now. :)

Don't blame yourself, Sam. We all knew who did it.

The profile, maps, and diary addresses is a bit long and looks complicated with all the characters (".", "?", "=", "%").

This has been discussed before. Can we have something similar to the photo gallery address? Here's a few suggestions:

www.travellerspoint.com/profile/Hien/
www.travellerspoint.com/maps/Hien/
www.travellerspoint.com/diary/Hien/

or

www.travellerspoint.com/member/profile/Hien/
www.travellerspoint.com/member/maps/Hien/
www.travellerspoint.com/member/diary/Hien/


Or perhaps one single address, the profile, should be enough since all the others are accessible from there. :)


Just my 20 cents (guys, inflation!).

Nice feature! I wonder if anyone is actually ever going to make use of it, but... nice feature!

:)

Hien, it might happen at some time, but right now I'd say it's bottom of the pile. It's actually one of the reasons for having this and the 'Promote' feature, as members contact us from time to time wondering what links to send to their friends and family.

Niels, you never know. Build it and see who comes :) I know of a few people that have designed and developed their own 'travel cards' and asked us for permission to use a logo for example, so I can only imagine there is a market out there for it. And of course, we're probably the first travel company doing it, which we like

Cool!!!!!!! I think there will be several people who will use the feature too - including us. It will save having to find that scrap of paper to jot down TP's web address when someone is interested.

ps: I'm not responsible for what I do while sleepwalking, H!!! Also, I'll take my crowbar and martini glass back, if you please!!!
