Limit on number of blogs? 10?

Travel Forums System Talk Limit on number of blogs? 10?

I tend to create a new blog for each trip. I am currently moving my stuff over from a "free" website that is now defunct and am creating new blogs to put the contents into. I have been able to save the html and xml files to access the content and copy and paste text as required.

Except at 10. I can't create a new blog.

There indeed is a limit of 10 blog for new members, and that limit goes up and eventually goes away as you become more active. I seem to recall Peter (the admin) talking about dropping this limit altogether a year or two ago when another travel website stopped functioning and people were migrating over here en masse, but if you're running into it now, then that apparently hasn't happened. (Although that could be a bug rather than intentional.)

Might be that when Peter sees this thread tomorrow (it's the middle of the night for him right now), he can take some action to allow you extra blogs already. (No guarantees, obviously, but he tends to be very responsive on issues like this.)

Meanwhile - although I see you first registered many years ago - welcome (back?) to Travellerspoint. :)
Out of general interest, what was the site that went defunct which you're migrating away from?

Virtualtourist was one and I saved the contents. Another was Geocities but that was long ago but I have the XML. And others on Travelpod.... I was a bit of a butterfly.... ;)

I was one of the refugees "en masse" arriving from Virtualtourist in 2017 and managed to salvage some but not all of my travelogues to the web.archive.org facility. There was no limit to the number of travelogues which could be accepted by both Virtualtourist and the archive facility, I can't remember how many I have submitted here on TP but if the limit is 10 maybe this old Moroccan favourite might count.......

And one called Pashinet for motorcycle based trips. They just upped and cut the forum style blogs.

Ok, so I reviewed this limit. I thought I'd removed it before actually, but I hadn't. It was set to only trigger for members without a membertitle. Since you have posted in the forum you have now gained the "Budding Member" title which means the limit would not exist.

I've gone ahead and removed the limit entirely now though, so you should be able to add more.

Hope it helps.
