Travel Forums System Talk Link from Instagram to my TP Homepage

Hello all,

I want to link my TP profile to my Instagram account. I have copied the style of another TP member and his link on Instagram takes me to his page. I get an error....

Do I need to change a setting on TP?

Thanks,

DAO

To which specific page are you trying to link?

If it's to your map, this thread is relevant: Instagram doesn't seem to want to link to URLs with a # in it, so you'd need a URL-shortener to get a different URL for your map. (I just created https://tinyurl.com/daotravelmap for you.)

If that isn't it: What is the exact text of the error message you get on instagram?

Most less-frequently used buttons get removed on small screen sizes (as there's simply not enough space to show them all), including the one to insert a photo. Probably if you put your phone in horizontal rotation, the button will show.

From post #3 I get the impression that you have successfully linked to your map from instagram now, correct? Informing you about the workaround with using a URL-shortener is the best thing we can do. This is a known bug with instagram, not something we can otherwise solve.
