Hi all!

We're really happy with the response to the new design we pushed up last week. TravelPod is a labour of love for us all and your encouragement always keeps us going.

That being said, there was one thing that ruffled a few feathers and that's photo weaving.

To cut right to the point, we made some changes that some people liked and others didn't. There were a few technical glitches in the first few hours that we managed to iron out, but we're still getting a lot of questions about this change.

Here's a quick FAQ to get this discussion going:

Oh my goodness!? What happened to my blog? All the pictures are messed up?
We made some changes to the presentation of your blog. Most importantly, your actual entry and picture data was never changed. Everything can be fixed without any changes needed on your part.

I have auto-weave enabled, why aren't there any thumbnails woven into my entries?
We now weave larger thumbnails into your entry. As a result, it requires more text for the first picture to be automatically woven in.

But there used to be thumbnails in my entries, why aren't they there anymore?
The large thumbnail change was applied to all entries ever written that have auto-weave enabled.

Why do some of my older entries still have small thumbnails?
Entries created before November 3rd, 2009 that have pictures manually woven in will continue to display the small version of the thumbnail. This type of entry is referred to as a "legacy entry".

Why does the map stretch out across the top on some entries?
In the redesign, we widened the space for your entry text to be displayed. "Legacy entries" need to maintain the old width so that picture formating is not disrupted.

Ok. Now what? I'm not happy with the way my old entries are displayed?
We're open to ideas and suggestions. We have large thumbnails and little thumbnails. We have auto-weaving and manual weaving. We have legacy entries. Let us know what kind of controls you'd like to have and we'll see what we can do.

If I missed anything, please feel free to ask more questions below.

That is exactly what you have to do. How the text will display also depends on the size of the photo and it's orientation. It does take a bit of trial and error to get it just right.

Can't figure it out ...we can! Just ask us!
