Trips improvements

Let's collect things that have to be improved in the trips-application. That means bugs but also slight modification on layout and functionality. Bigger changes/wishes should go into seperate tickets.

One first thing is pagination on the trips-overview page. Otherwise the list will grow endlessly..

Change History (28)

pagination for startpage of trips added in r5934

comment:2 Changed 9 years ago by mahouni

I tested on production.
system: ubuntu 8.04, webbrowser:epiphany

General Design and Functionality

  • I would prefer if the map doesnt fill the whole length of the site.
  • Explain better what is Trip, blog post, subtrip.

Especially the workflow: how to create subtrips! And when writing a blog post make it more obvious, that you can (and should..) attach a trip and/or a location and that you can decide if it`s going to be public/protected/private.

Functionality (small things)

and clicked on the "Map"-Link of a blogpost.
--> got directed to mainpage (

and clicked Actions: Show my trips
I was directed to the right page, but got a warning(see below).
Though the trips are not visible on the map on this site.

Design (small things)

  • the trips on the mapy are only visible as flags of subtrips. Would it be possible to draw the lines of the routes? And for the overview only draw the start and end flags (or smaller flags for trip stations (subtrips)?
  • List of subtrips: the date of subtrips/stations could be put in front of the places?

--> "schön untereinander..."

  • Details, map of this trip... Show photoset

--> should be shorter (symbol or only one word) and separated
--> instead of Details: make the trip title clickable to get direct to the trip details?
Title: Trip_draganddrop
--> explain better, that it is possible to drag and drop the subtrips in the prefered order.
many text userunfriendly
Titles like: Triptitle_edit
Buttons: TripSubmit_edit
Selectable Lists: TripAssignGallery?->TripAssignGallerySelect?
userunfriendly texts:
"CommentsSingular?": when there is already a comment
"Would you like to comment?" --> just "comment"?
userunfriendly text, i.e. on submenu Trips & Settings
Selectable List: --BlogCreateNoCategories?--
Titles and texts like: BlogCreateTrips_LabelStartdate etc.
Calendar Function needs improvement (where is year, day)
cal doesnt work (
Description what is public,protected, private
Userunfriendly titles, texts and descritpions like:
BlogManageCategories?, Category_label_name

error/warning message: (see functionality)
Warning: Missing argument 2 for TripController::showTrips(), called in /home/bwrox/ on line 172 and defined in /home/bwrox/ on line 176

i uploaded a small CSS-change for the detailed trip-view (r5937). Is it better like that? I removed the strong background on dates and added a slight border next to it. I also fitted the numbers and City-names better on the map.

comment:4 Changed 9 years ago by micha

Thanks for the great feedback, mahouni! More of that! I will try to work on this list and encourage anyone else to do so.

comment:5 Changed 9 years ago by micha

the error above should been fixed with r5940

comment:6 Changed 9 years ago by micha

Trips added to main-navigation and profiles in r5954

Search Trips - Geo Leveling

It would be nice to find a Trip which leads to Paris as well if you search for trips in France or even Europe.
Hopefully for Europe this search will be full soon but for other regions? Southamerica it would be pretty nice actually.

After creating a Sub-trip I m forwarded to the Bogs. Feels strange for me because in the action menu I can t create another Sub-Trip right away. I ve got to click me through the Trips-> My Trips- Create Sub-trip again.

but great work so far!

Ohh hjeah and since we have a big map already on the trips page. What aout showing an Icon wherever an upcomng trip is going to?

comment:9 in reply to: ↑ 1 ; follow-up: Changed 9 years ago by fabzgy

I just wanted to change the destination for my trip in Mexcio.
Could not firgure out a way to do so. I can edit the text but not the destination.

Trips do change a lot - at least mine.... users should be able to change destinations afterwards.

  • follow_up changed from none to test

Replying to fabzgy:

What do you mean by that? A trip itself doesn't have a location set. Only subtrips have destinations or better "locations". You can edit them by following the edit-link at the bottom of them. Currently you only see the edit-link once you open the full subtrip/blogpost. Maybe this led to confusions..

Something else that I think is needed:

  • A backlink from a gallery that has been assigned to a trip to this trip!
  • A backlink from a blog post that belongs to a trip to this trip
  • for both of the above we would need a good indicator (an icon or addition to the title) to make clear they're connected to a trip
  • Make trip-titles and trip-dates editable from the trip-list (using inplace-editor or similar) - just because dates and titles change often.
  • Add link to the trip-items in list-view to edit them (and so edit their text)
  • At best remove all unwanted redirects to the blog-application. Instead provide a native view for full subtrip-posts and so on

More little bugs:

  • special chars don't always seem to work with the SPAF maps. E.g. "Sokch'o" can't be selected. Maybe only JS problem?
  • location-selection should make use of the new geo-selector from signup
  • "BlogsCreateFinishTexts?" should not show up in hidden form-field but above, visible after creating a tripstation
  • On trip creation, the date from the latest station should be selected by default
  • In Trips-Overview: Show last edited trips on top, not last created.

comment:12 Changed 9 years ago by micha

possible improvement:

  • add "back" and "forward" buttons to easiely get from one tripstation to the next

comment:13 Changed 9 years ago by feuerdaemon

If you look at a trip like
The link "from Feuerdaemon" to the Member in the big google box is wrong ->
It should be

Every trip page has a wrong link.

comment:14 Changed 9 years ago by feuerdaemon

You can not delete Blog categories.

comment:15 follow-up: Changed 9 years ago by lemon-head

Improve Navigation

The navigation of blogs and trips is still quite confusing.

We need navigation links to jump between profile of member X, all trips by , individual trip, all trips in region by any member, all blog posts by member X, etc.

The "trips" menu item in the top menu is far less important.

Another nice thing would be "my friends' trips"

comment:16 in reply to: ↑ 15 Changed 9 years ago by fabzgy

Would be nice if we could have a e-mail notification/RSS Feed of people who are going to visit a City/Region/Country?.

If I could get a notive that a BW Member is going to visit Costa Rica I could invite him to stya over at my place.

Maybe he would not search in the little town I live but if I invite him/her they would come.

(Move travellers from Big Cities into smaller communities)

making the trips-list look better: r6317

comment:18 Changed 9 years ago by micha

added a different sorting mechanism in r6395. A change in tripstations makes the trip show up on top of the list now.

comment:19 Changed 9 years ago by crumbking

there is a a bug with the user links in the trip detail view.

while logged in:

while clicking in the map on mahouni200000 you will be forward to but you end in
my first idea: change the path from

@Manuel: This bug has been solved already and waits on alpha to be moved to production. But thanks for checking.

Bug in trip search: On neither the text search works (whatever I enter there I get a long list of unrelated hits) nor the map search (no hits at all).

comment:28 Changed 5 years ago by planetcruiser

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

one issue per ticket please. some of these issues may have been fixed already, but generally we will rewrite trips in welen (if we decide to keep the feature).

sitatara, could you please create a new ticket for your issue?
