Travel Forums System Talk Categories for Blogs

Will Travellerspoint be looking at the structure of their blogs?

When choosing a category for a blog post, the list shows only countries. I'm a little disappointed there is only a drop-down box. Being able to choose your own category would be better - at least for me. I'd like to be able to have posts labelled under (for example) Kalgoorlie, or Cooktown - cities or towns, not just the country.
The other drop-down box also has a list, but it is pre-set list. And they don't necessarily reflect the post.
Having the ability to "tag" your posts selecting the tags of your choice would be better. Example - Lakes & Rivers, Birds & Animals, Buildings etc.

Freely tagging blog posts has been on the todo list for quite a while already. I don't know if it's going to happen with the upcoming redesign, but if not, then it should definitely by somewhere high up on the list after that.

Yes, these changes have been made in our redesign. Once that goes live, tagging will be available on the blogs and will replace the current category system. But we have other fixes that need to be made to the redesign first before we are ready to launch.

Thanks Sander and Peter, it's good to know this will be available. Hopefully when it does, the existing photos will be able to be tagged/labelled.

Photos can already be tagged and that has been possible for quite some time. Or did you mean to type "blog entries" there? If so, then yes, you will be able to edit old blog posts and tag them as needed. And if you have assigned them a category already, then that will already be set as the first tag.

I was speaking of blog entries. Thanks for that.
