• Toni,

    The new banner looks GREAT 😎

    • Banner is still the same I assume you mean the changes to navigation etc… but it’s funny that you mention banner… A new complete banner/header is in the making πŸ™‚ It’s gonna look great!

      • I was considering the whole section above the white part, the banner. πŸ™ Yes the navigation area does look nice, liking the gold. New statement at the bottom is interesting. I need to think about starting a blog/journal when we take off. πŸ™‚

        • Thanks, also I have found a font that I am really happy with and should work across all browsers πŸ™‚ – thanks Google lol… Regarding the Cycle Touring Blog/Journal it can be about past trips too or even just thoughts about bicycle touring.. But I am not yet completely done with the set-up, just want to see if there is any interest..

  • There are a few changes in the design happening over the next days – all feedback Good or Bad are welcome πŸ™‚

  • All accounts should be restored properly now, but @scottjc82 , @velocetera , @samdavenport , @pedalpowertouring , @milongaroja and @tdottimster might experience log-in problems… If you have trouble logging in please let me know at support @ worldpedal . com (remove spaces) and I will get it resolved…

  • Guys, I just got a PM from Tim he is seeing this error message quite a few times: Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 62652416) ….. have gotten 2 more PMs regarding this already and yes I get it too sometimes… Just wondering how often you are seeing it now? Did it increase the last couple days for you? And also if site performance/speed is…[Read more]

    • I received a few errors over the weekend. Have stopped using everything but Chrome to view WorldPedal. Pages still load slow sometimes and then the next is spot on. It does not seem to matter what page I’m trying to load.

      • Yes this really messes with the user experience and we can’t expect everyone to use chrome – I finally made the move and upgraded to a way better hosting plan. Next week the site should perform a lot better (I mean I hope!)

  • Guys I would love to hear some feedback and could use a tester that has close to no experience with running a website himself. Not sure if you knew that we are planning to give out cycle touring journals, these will be real blogs under a subdomain like toni.worldpedal.com, you will get these cycle touring blogs for free once you reach a certain…[Read more]

    • Hi Toni,

      One thing (at this time) I would like to suggest that replying to a post that it is connected to the original thread and not the Activity page. For example Leon H. commented on something that was posted originally on the Why Bicycle Touring blog, but did it from the Activity page. I in turn responded to him and neither post is…[Read more]

  • Another suggestion for the future Toni would be that when users select a link, that it opens a new page rather than taking the user away from worldpedal.com.

  • We are a few only so far but I would love to hear how your experience regarding site load speed is currently (if you compare to your other regular sites, I know we load kind of slow) and also if you run into error messages often or just occasionally (yes there are some)? Or anything else that really bugs you about the site? I will have no choice…[Read more]

    • Toni,

      I find that the site loads fastest using Chrome. Firefox is my default browser and I have also tried using IE. Both take a lot longer to load the site.

      What is the file size limit when uploading photos etc.? Had some memory errors trying to load the photos the other night until I re-sized them to no bigger then 800 x 600 or smaller.

      Gary

      • Yeah Chrome and WorldPedal go REALLY well together so far πŸ™‚ – Regarding uploads: There is currently no file size limit (need to decide on one though) but I limited the picture upload size, so 800×600 is a good size to upload for now… I will give it more thought and decide on the max dimensions.. I don’t want to have someone upload a lot of very…[Read more]

        • My point and shoot digital produces a 4000 X 3000 pixel and over 5 MB image in highest quality. My DSLR produces 4608 X 3072 pixel at 7.5 MB. If I take that 7.5 MB file and shrink it to 800 X 600 it is now a 244 KB file. Considering that they are for viewing on the internet that should be fine. Another site I belong to limits images to 100 KB…[Read more]

          • Thanks Gary – yeah I can’t really accept so big images (this is not a stock image site LOL), I think I will have to wait and see once we have more members, what their reactions will be… I am not sure if many are “savvy” enough to shrink images or if the hassle might be too big for some… We’ll see πŸ™‚

        • I have been uploading 900 x 600 pixel images @ 72 ppi which are around 250kb – 350kb each. I think I’ll reduce them to 600 x 400 pixels @ 72 ppi from now on. This should still give a postcard size print for around 75kb βˆ’ 150kb.

    • Toni, I’m using Safari and although the site is not super fast it is generally good. Sometimes when I try to load a new page the page just freezes up. A quick fix for me is to cancel the request and select the page again. It has always loaded quickly the second time around.

      • My standard browsers are Firefox and Safari as well but since a few weeks I am really into Chrome, it is a lot faster for me to work on that site. Are you a mac user Darren or you just use an Ipad?

        • I use a PC at work and an iMac at home. My work PC is painful after using a no fuss mac.

          • LOL, I feel the same, I am on an Imac as well and got 2 more mac notebooks but also 2 windows laptops (need it for some programs) since I hate using parallels, in a perfect world all programs would work for mac and I would gladly get rid of any windows computers around here πŸ˜€ – are you going to bring your Ipad on your trip?

        • The iPad was a test for work, I loved it. I treated it like a diary with the bonus that it just happened to have access the web, receive emails, take photographs ……….. It is out being field tested with a Project Manager at present but the word on the street is that it will be returned to my possession permanently within two to three weeks. It en…[Read more]

  • Toni, any chance of making posts available to be edited by the owner? Spellin mistcakes are emparrising πŸ˜‰

    • haha! Okay I will look into this wery zoon πŸ˜€

    • Hey Mr. Spellin Mistcake.. You can now edit your original posts but I ran into some limitations with editing replies… I will not forget about it and will look into it again and again as time goes by, hopefully there will be a fix in the future πŸ™‚

  • Sign-up flows a lot better now and is less daunting πŸ™‚ – All you’ll have to do is fill out a couple empty fields (screenshot attached) – and if you’d like to add more info about you and your cycle touring experience after sign up you can easily do so by just clicking on your avatar, or name, or you can go thru your admin bar even and click on…[Read more]
