Here to Help!
Welcome to VT! You're off to a great start as you just joined the best travel website and community in the world! As mentioned in the welcome message, there are lots of things you can do on VT. But let me answer some of the most common questions.
Q. How Do I Write a Review?
A. There are two ways to write a review.
1. Click 'Welcome MemberName' at the top of this and every page in the top black header.
2. Click 'Travel pages'. (Or use this link)
3. Enter the location you want in the 'Add or edit a location' box under the map.
4. Click 'Build your ..... page now'.
5. On the next page you can choose to write the intro or reviews/tips under several different categories.
When it comes to editing, you'll see that anything you have written has a grey 'edit' button either top left (if it's the whole location travelpage you want to change) or bottom right (if it's just a review/tip, or the intro).
Whenever you want to edit or update a page just go to your Travelpages list and enter the location name into the 'Add or edit a location' box. Then proceed as above.
Click "Write a Review" at the top of this and every page in the top black header or use this link. Enter the location of where you want to write a review, then enter the name of what you want to review. Only attractions, hotels and restaurants that are already listed on VT will show up in this dropdown, however from this way, you can also easily add a listing to VT.
Q. How Do I Ask a Forum Question?
A. At the top of this and every other page, you will see in the blue header a "Forums" dropdown. Simply click on which forum you would like to ask a question - Travel, Technical or Miscellaneous (reserved for light banter).
If you have a Travel Forum Question for a specific location, just type in the name of the location in the white search bar on the left underneath the big blue "Travel Answers" heading.
Q. What Else Can I Do on VT?
There are A TON of things you can do on VT. It's now your travel community! You can connect with other members at cool, VT meet-ups around the world, read tips and reviews about where you're traveling to next in our Travel Guides, or check out the latest activity for inspiration on where to travel to next.
What helps is if you share a little about yourself that way it really feels like a community. Let other travelers know where you're from, what are your travel interests and more. To get started, you can create your Member Profile Page. If you've already started one, even better. You can update it with more info using this link. You will find that VTers (that's what we call our members) are a friendly, helpful bunch. So don't hesitate to send someone a message, comment on their profile page, or ask them to show you around their hometown.
