Just a quick note that I've just added a new thing to the forum that should help people to find the answer they're looking for -- especially if the question has been asked before. At the end of each discussionyou'll now see a list of up to a dozen related threads -- ie threads that may be on the same topic. Now this is all determined automatically, so there could be some mismatchs, but in general we hope this will help people find the information they're after without needing to ask a new que ...

Travelfish redesign

Posted by somtam2000 on 21/6/2010 at 14:24

Hi all, Just a quick note here to dispel rumours I'm spending all my time surfing... The reason I've been on the site rarely of late is because we're in the closing stages of a major redesign of the Travelfish website, so while I have been busy (trying) to learn to surf, we've also been busy beavering away to try and make the whole "Travelfish Thang" a bit more of an enjoyable and useful process for you all (and us!). So I just wanted to highlight a few of the changes that are on th ...

Private messaging on Travelfish

Posted by somtam2000 on 7/5/2010 at 16:18

Ok, long promised, now (kinda) delivered.

Using the forums - problem viewing

Posted by heleni on 3/5/2010 at 00:25

I can't read the posts in the forums or their content. Everything is obscured by advertising and other text on the left hand side. (Air Asia Angkor and general Travelfish headings). It is a mess. How are other people managing??? Even as I type this a box is smacked right on top of the right side. What to do? ...

New spam issues on the forum

Posted by somtam2000 on 6/1/2010 at 11:08

Because of persistent show spam coming in from chinese show spamming morons, I've added some more spam protection to the forum. Initially some posts may get mis-classified as spam -- if, after posting a real message you get a message saying your post has been flagged for manual review (and you are not a shoe merchant) then we should get it live shortly. Apologies for the inconvenience. ...

Travelfish for your iPhone

Posted by somtam2000 on 8/10/2009 at 09:38

As some may have noticed, we're currently running a bunch of ads on the site regarding a Travelfish iPhone application. It is still in development, but we're hoping to have the first one ready very very soon. As with our Travelfish Guides, the apps will be specialised to specific destinations, and the first one will be for Siem Reap in Cambodia.

Uploading profile photos

Posted by SBE on 20/7/2009 at 17:25

I was diddling around with my profile controls a few days ago and I *think* I uploaded a picture onto my profile page. The wotsit thingy with the "help" question mark seems to think I did because it doesn't give me the option of uploading another one. My question is...where did the photo go? All I see on my profile page is the usual default image. ...
