    I’m in IT, but this site remains tricky to navigate and successfully post content.
    I’m aware its only just started, but it still has teething problems.

        Same experience for me and it’s 8 months on from your experience of reporting your difficulties, and this site has such great potential.

    A place to post photographs would be helpful

      At this moment you can upload the photos of your property when you are listing and one photo as your profile image.

      Do you mean that you would like to post some more photos of yourself? We believe that one good profile image is enough for other people to see wo they are planning to host or visit. We may be wrong. If it turns out this is public demand, we can change our mind.

      I think “G-rated ” photo would be OK I feel that this web page does not need nude photo

    Would it be possible to explain the procedure for choosing when I want to make my rooms available if only using a mobile phone. I can’t cancel anything or make dates unavailable or change something that I have already submitted. I did read your post about not opening the main calendar using a mobile but it’s all I have. Does this mean your website is unusable for me.

      Hi Angie. There are some features in the main calendar which we have not been able get working properly in many mobile browsers. There might be some improvements in future updates, but it’s still recommended using a computer to manage availability. You can get more specific help by opening a ticket at

    All good ideas, keep them coming.
    Living on a very rural farm we have a diagram that we send to guests of the last few kilometers to our place which they find very helpful.

    Wondering if there is something wrong with my profile–either the text and feature or if there is something technically wrong–have I failed to publish it properly. We have been on here for months and live in a very popular tourist area and haven’t gotten even the first inquiry. Was hoping for so much better.
