  • Confusing question… I have an event plug in and I have it connected through Zapier to also publish my events as posts. Do I then have to go into Vacation Soup and edit the posts to check the boxes ‘Things to do’, ‘Things to see’, etc.? I really ended up not spending much time writing last year but hope to get back to it.

  • Richard — what plug in do you use?

  • Okay – so I did that and it showed me the sitemap, so there is one.  However, when I use both that woorank site AND the google search console and look for sitemaps — both woorank and google say I don’t have one.   ??

  • Alan — I’m watching the video, but when I go to the menu and choose SEO, there is no menu item for XML sitemaps. Is that a premium feature?

  • The woman recommended the free version of Woorank to test the website — you can get the basics without signing up (just not the details on how to go about actually fixing).

  • This week I had a free consultation with a social media ‘expert’ (I assume she is probably around 22).  She told me to check my website on for errors and suggestions.  The results were pretty good — the website is ‘in the red’ for speed and no sitemaps.  How do I go about generating XML sitemaps?  (And are they necessary?)


  • I noticed that recently, too.  There was a blog post that I wasn’t sure I wanted to share on Vacation Soup so I just did it through the post page, and I was surprised it came through Vacation Soup.  So far it’s been fine, but I can think of some times where I might just want it to be on my website only.

    Hi – I use to sinc postings.

  • I am trying to figure out what CSS codes to use to customize my header for phone or computer.  If I format the header to look good on computer, it looks wonky on phone and vice/versa.  For example… when I’ve formated the header to look like this on a computer:

    It looks like THIS on a phone:

  • I agree — I have my settings so I see all the new posts on the top of my FB feed, but for many of them, I have no idea where they are.  We should make sure to put the state and/or country and also city or region in the title.

  • Well that was easy enough.  How do I center it though?  It’s aligned left.

  • Hi – I’ve tried it both ways.  No luck.


  • My You-tube video has disappeared again.  Second time.  Here is the code that I have in the widget:

    <h2>Our Location – DownEast Coastal Maine</h2>

    So I tried to put the you tube video back on my home page via text widget and it’s tiny (and not centered).  Even when I edit the width and height, it doesn’t change it.  

  • Howdy.  I posted a blog post on the soup this morning.  I had a custom map and you-tube video on it.

    problem 1)  After I published it, the you-tube video had disappeared.

    problem 2) I went to my posts page and edited the post to add the you-tube video back in, but I guess this doesn’t edit the Soup version.

    problem 3) the map (done by sh…[Read more]

    I had a You-Tube video on my home page.  Last night it stopped showing for some reason.  I couldn’t get it to work so I just uploaded a video from my computer.  I’m wondering what the pros and cons are — ie.  speed of website, SEO, etc.


  • So, I’ve freaked out twice in the past 24 hours.  I woke up yesterday morning and my website said:

  • I LOVE that idea.  But no clue how to do it.  I’ll have to try to figure it out.  (If you have time and can steer me towards where/how to do this — aweseome – but I’ll do some googling, too.  There are several pages I’d like different on desktop and phone.

  • I made some changes to ‘experiment’.  For now, I hid those beautiful sliders and moved the featured properties up top, just under the menu (If anyone knows a way to move the sliders, that would be ideal).  Then I cleaned up some of the wordiness on the home page.  Already today I’ve had a lot more clicks on properties so maybe that will he…[Read more]
