Not All trips showing in Profile

Travel Forums System Talk Not All trips showing in Profile

I have 6 trips in Travellerspoint for which I ran a blog. I only used the map in two of these trips, and these are the only ones that show up in my profile. How do I get the remaining 4 to show up

If I understand you correctly: Scroll down a bit further in your profile. Your profile has multiple sections. Below "About" and "Photos", there's one for "Trips", which lists three trips (maps) for you. (Probably your screen resolution is such that it shows the first two.)
- Motorcycling around Italy 2023
- Half Way Round Australai
- Motorcycling Around Europe

...and then below that a section for blogs, with two subsections, of which the second is "Travel Blogs MKaye runs". That lists the 6 blogs (trips) which I suspect you mean:
- Motorcycling around Europe 2013
- Half Way Round 2014
- Motorcycling around Europe 2015
- Motorcycling around New Zealand 2016
- Motorcycling around Spain 2017
- Motorcycling BC Canada 2019

Thanks Sander,
I realise now that trips are associated with a map. Because I did not add a map to the other 4 blogs they do not show up in the trip section. Is there an easy way to add a map to these blogs, or do I need to create the map of these old trips.

There is no "automatic" way to turn text in a blog into a map of a trip. So, yes, if you want entries to show up in the "trips" section, you'll need to create maps for that.

Do note, however, that only the three most recent maps show up in the "Trips" section of your profile. If you have more, then after those three, it'll show a link "All Trips ([total number])". So, basically, I'd only bother if you actually care about having the trip visualized on a map.

(The thing with this site is that there is not one "best" way to do things. Some people only use the maps feature, some people only use the blogs feature, some people use both. It all works, and it's all up to your individual preference.)
