- Backpacking Information
Backpacking Information posts allow unregistered hikers to post up plain-text information in the forums.
Navigate to the Trail or Topic Forum that relates to your issue in the Backpacker Forums, click "Backpacking Information," and the post you write will appear in that forum and across the home page forum as well.
ANYONE can post a Backpacking Information page, and this format also accepts comments from anyone. Hikers must register to upload images, videos, and use the text editor. Registered hikers can use "Trail" and "Trip" Notes to post with images, embed videos or maps, and have some editing control with a text editor.
- Backpacking Story
Backpacking Stories allow unregistered backpackers to post pages in the forums to relate their perspective on the backpacking experience.
Backpacking Stories are for more complex issues, while the Backpacking Information posts are designed to address simple topics.
Because of the lack of registration security, backpacking stories are restricted to plain text, cannot use the Rich Text editor, and cannot post images.
Registration is required to post images and maps or embed videos. Registration allows users to open up the Trail Notes and Trip Notes posts, which allow images, videos, and have a text editor.
