    Re: Can't load photos from iPad

    So can anyone tell me if an ipad displays only the VRBO mobile version for a listing?  I do not have an ipad, but do indeed have an iphone.  On an iphone, the VRBO version of any listing is the mobile version, even though the home page provides a link to the full version.  It does not allow one to see the full version for individual listings.  Thus, if you have a link to your own personal website, a traveler will not be able to access your website via the mobile version.

     

    Thanks in advance to anyone willing to tell me what they see on their ipad.

      Hi Bobbie:

      I opened a VRBO listing page on my iPad and got the full page.  I don't have an iPhone to compare the differences, but the iPad page looked the same as my desktop page.

        Thanks Scott...very interesting.  I was under the impression that the operating system (OS 6.0.1) for an iphone was the same as for an ipad.  And I cannot get the full version for an individual listing to come up on my iphone.  There are no hyperlinks that are accessable and no link on the individual listing that takes you to the full version.  When I click on my listing from the full version, it says mobile.vrbo.com at the top.  Wish I knew why???  I also cannot edit from my iphone...can you edit from your ipad?

          Bobbie: When devices connect to web sites, they pass something called a "User Agent String".  The web sites can read this string to determine what type of browser, OS ver and device is connecting (and lots of other things).  The User Agent String is different for iPhone and iPad (and Chrome, FF, IE, etc).  I don't know how the HA site works, but it is likely that they check for the iPhone only in the User Agent String when deciding to send you to the mobile version.  Yes, I am able to edit my listing if I log into the dashboard on the iPad.  Hope that helps.

      Re: Can't load photos from iPad

      Hi there,

       

      I hope I can clear a couple things up for this group.

       

      Let's start with the easy question:

       

      "Can Travelers on a smartphone see the custom links that I set up on my property page?" - The answer is "No, not yet."

       

      Next question:

       

      "Can I upload a photo using my iPhone or iPad? If yes, then how?" - The answer is "Yes!"

       

      Here's how:

       

      1) Go to the "Photos" tab in the "Edit Listing" application in your Dashboard.

      2) If you are on a mobile device that does not support flash, you will be asked if you want to continue. Select "continue".

      3) Press the "upload" button near the top left of the page (orange button)

      upload.jpg

       

      3) You will get a dialog box asking you to choose files, select "choose file"

       

      choose file.jpg

       

      5) Here is where this starts looking special for a mobile device. You will now see a dialog box specific to the mobile device you are using. These are for an iPad. I selected "Choose existing".

       

      take photo.jpg

      6) You should now see a few options depending on how photo albums are setup on your device.

       

      my photos.jpg

       

      7) I picked "Camera Roll" to choose from some photos I have on my iPad.

       

      pick photo.jpg

       

      8) Once I picked a photo, it took a few moments (up to a minute) to upload the photo. It's not going to tell you it's done - the page will reload and you will get the flash warning again. Please "continue".

       

      continue.jpg

       

      9) At this point, the photo is uploaded, but you must save the page in order for the photo to appear on your listing.

       

      save.jpg

       

      10) Once saved, it will appear in your list of photos at the bottom of the photo editor page, and will eventually appear on your advertisement.

      I tried this on an iPad with iOS 6.01 and on an iPhone 5 with iOS 6.01. Both allowed me to perform the above actions. I will admit it's not the most intuitive and easy process, but I am glad that it works for those of you who don't have a desktop.

       

      Cheers,

       

      Jacy

    No one has ever faced this uploading matter during uploading.Just let you know that there would be some error like software or a erros of your android operating system which is handling your phone in case of Iphone.Otherwise in case of ipod it would not be a matter except a software disfunctioning.

    There is a plug-in when their web applications which support for multiple file uploads.
