I'm in the process of setting up a travel blog, and after scanning most of the templates, I ended up with the Adventure Journal, due to it's wide column w/large pics, and nice menu setups.
There are a few problems, though. Lots of issues with consistency of how pics are displayed in posts/streams over the different template settings; it seems like all templates have their own bugs and quirks there, but now I'm struggling with the Adventure Journal:
To post a pic that's large enough, I'll have to choose the "Photo" mode, and not post a regular blog post. When choosing to post a photo directly, I get the option of adding a caption - which can be used as a regular blog post text. There is no way of adding categories while making the photo post, so I'll have to go back to the post and edit in order to get the categories in place. Cumbersome, but no bug.
The real problem arises when I need to edit the text for typos and stuff like that, or just to add something (like we always do....)
The change is updated and visible on the front page (shows the most recent posts), and on the individual post view (by clicking the post title).
The change is NOT visible when viewing the posts through clicking on categories or tags. This means that you can't navigate through the drop-down menu I made to see the updated post....... huge bug, and impossible to work with.
Failed fixes: I've tried editing the post from all available access points, and the title can be edited - not the text, however. I've also tried changing the unique photo URL. Then, the photo will (not surprisingly) disappear on the front page listing and in the unique view (where the share buttons are visible), but the photo will NOT disappear on the tag and category streams....... it seems that it's been made a separate and unaccessible "first version" of my "Photo" blog post, which can not be edited, other than the title itself.
Is there a way around this, so that I can edit existing posts for the tag listings and category menus, or do I have to delete the existing post, and make a new one from scratch ..... each time I need to edit the text......?
And when deleting a post like that, does that mean that I can only delete/remove the indexable title + most recent version of the pic/caption, but that the "untouchable" version of the pic/caption will be impossible to delete completely, and because of that gradually fill up my storage....?
Sorry for the long question, but I guess it's needed to make things clear. Lastly, a few links:
Unique view of post (can be edited): http://globehobo.com/2012/04/07/testing-editing-bug/
"Tag stream" view of posts, here with the tag "Tiger" (post can not be edited, except from the title itself): http://globehobo.com/tag/tiger/
"Category stream" wiev of posts, here with the category "Norway" (post can not be edited, except from the title itself): http://globehobo.com/category/i-was-here/europe/norway/
See also the navigable menu at the top of the webpage; that's an essential way of finding posts - but posts you'll find there can not be edited.
The blog I need help with is globehobo.com.
