Shifting back in calendar for old trips is difficult.

If you just want to get a record here of every trip you've taken, which is what I did when I joined, there is no need to be accurate. Just go for as close a date as you can remember - maybe year and month? You can make up the specific date - no one will ever know

Yes it’s true it’s a bit of a pain selecting old years in the calendar. Best option right now is to type the date in rather than use the calendar. Just stick to the same date format and it should work.

There is also an update of the calendar component in the works which fixes that issue. Not sure how long till that’s done though.

If your photos are digital, they should have a date on them too.

This only works if you have the original digital photo. I noticed all my uploads from Virtual Tourist are dated the day they were uploaded to TravellersPoint. I have to return to the originals to get valid dates.

I have done a LOT of that. I just click on the box and manually type in the date. I definitely don't bother using the calendar. If you make a mistake typing, click on the (wrong) date you typed, and a calendar for that month and year will pop up, allowing you to choose a different day that month.
