Improved text editor

September 24, 2008

Just a quick blog post to let you know that we’ve just replaced the text editor for adding & editing your journal entries. The new text editor looks and works a little different, but of course still allows you to publish your travel adventures, style them, insert pictures, and so on. The biggest improvement is that Fuzzy Travel’s text editor now works as it’s supposed to on all major browsers (there were some issues in e.g. Safari). If you have any questions, suggestions or problems, please let us know.

Blog entry preview

December 12, 2006

While writing or editing a blog entry, the ‘Preview’ button is a very useful tool to check out what your message will look like when you publish it, without actually publishing it (yet). For example, it can be used for re-reading and spell-checking your entry, or making sure that all markup and pictures show up correctly. We’re glad to announce that previewing your journal messages has just gotten better: it will now display the blog entry in your travelogue template, so that you can see exactly what it will look like once it’s online.

Writing Without Worries

November 21, 2006

It can happen to anyone: losing your to-be-published journal entry accidentily. Some examples:

  • You click the ‘publish’ button, and your internet connection turns out to have died.
  • You’re in the middle of writing a travel story. Suddenly, the power generator of the island you’re on decides to take a break and your computer switches off. (It might sound far-fetched, but it actually happened to me!)
  • You accidentily logout without having published your journal entry.

Are you scared yet? Don’t be, because here’s the good news: You no longer have to worry about losing any of your journal entries. During the process of writing, your entry is from now on regularly saved as a draft. Should you happen to lose an entry due to whatever cause, the next time you go to ‘write a new journal entry’, the draft will automagically be recovered and displayed, so that you can continue writing from where you were cut off.

Generally, the only thing you will notice about this auto-saving feature is a small announcement, as you can see in the accompanying picture. But the most important thing is that you can now truly “Write Without Worries”!
