How do you insert a photo on the travel guide? When I click photo, there is no way to upload.

You click on the photo to view the number, which is in the link.

Than it goes like this: [ [ photo | number ] ] (without all the blank characters, did that to prevend applying a link)

The Travel Guide does not have an upload photo function. Instead, it uses the existing photos uploaded by members of this site. This means you can either upload into your own gallery, or search for a photo in the Photography section. Once you have found the one you want, copy the PhotoID from the address (e.g. http://www.travellerspoint.com/photos/stream/size/L/photoID/451053/features/orderByID/).

On the Travel Guide, the code for the image will appear as:

[photo|451053]

There are two ways to get this:
1. type it manually
2. type/paste the photoID in a new line, then highlight the photoID, and press the Photo button. The code will be formatted for you. Try it!

There are other ways to display a photo on the travel guide:

  • [photo|beach] - tag name - This will randomly pick a photo that's been tagged as 'beach'
  • [photo|Malaysia] - country name - This will randomly pick a photo that's been featured in the Malaysia gallery.

I think I know who you're referring to.

We all make mistakes. At first, I typed two square brackets too, before correcting it later. :)
