Deleting a photo within a published post

Travel Forums System Talk Deleting a photo within a published post

Hi there,

I was just wondering if you could please tell me how to delete a photo within a published blog post without deleting the post altogether or removing views and comments.

I have gone into my photo album and deleted the photo in question but it is still in the post.

All I really want to do is edit the post (kinda like editing a Facebook status) and remove the photo without interrupting comments and views of the particular post or moving the post up to the most recent spot. (I clicked on "edit post" and what it did was create a duplicate post where I could delete the photo but it then showed 0 views and 0 comments)

Is there any way to do this?

Thanks in advance

Go to that blog & click 'edit' at the bottom.

If you want to see what the photo text looks like, insert a new one & then delete it.

Find the line of text that has the photo you want to delete & remove the text.

Publish again.

You could also change text too or size of photos if you wanted..

Re 'comments'. Have a look at

item #2 on this thread.

Sounds like the comments are not worth looking at & I never have had a comment in 4 months.

And your note about edit creating a duplicate post - it does not do that for me.

May I suggest you make up a test blog & play with adding & deleting photos & perhaps you can see what is happening. Maybe the Auto Save as Draft is doing something wierd

After many attempts, I thought I had finally duplicated your issue.

I have a blog entry 2005 A1 NCL SPIRIT - MIAMI TO LOS

I deleted a photo.

Waited for the auto save to kick in.

Then saved as draft.

Now I have the original and another entry that is a duplicate of the first entry but as a draft.
I then published the draft and the entry moved out of it's original position as yours did & now have only 1 entry but there are still 'visits'.
The 'visits' disappeared for you.

So - I am only half way to your issue & do not know what else to try.

Hopefully the IT team will have a look at it.

Just for clarity for anyone reading this thread in future...

The photos that you have in your Travellerspoint gallery are like a storage place for all of your photos – your own online photo album. By inserting a photo into a blog post you include a link to the direct URL of the photo itself. This means that it operates separately from any actions you take in your photo album.

For example: if you uploaded a set of vertical photos without rotating them and then inserted them in a blog post as they are, only to rotate the photos in your gallery afterwards, this would not automatically correct the orientation of the photos in your blog post.

To edit a blog post, click on Manage Entries in your blog's Control Panel. When your cursor is placed over the entry (post) title, the Edit and Delete options appear. For those using the mobile site ( tapping on the title will bring up these options.

To delete a photo you just need to find the photo within your post and remove that line of text. It will look something like this:

If you rename your files it should be easy to locate the one you don't want and remove it from the post. If not, you can use the Show Preview (on desktop site) to find the photo and then select Show Editor to locate that photo within the text of your post and remove. Just don't forget you can't edit the post while looking at the preview.
