Migrating from Pinmapple

Importing your Pinmapple posts to TravelFeed allows you to keep all your pins after Pinmapple shuts down.

Why Import Posts from Pinmapple to TravelFeed?

Pinmapple is a Hive app that allows users to pin their posts to a map. However, it is now discontinued. If you have posts previously posted on Hive using the Pinmapple code snippet, you can import them to TravelFeed to keep your pins and view them on a map.

Here are some reasons why importing your Pinmapple posts to TravelFeed is a good idea:

  1. Keep Your Pins: By importing your Pinmapple posts to TravelFeed, you can preserve your pins and continue to view them on a map.
  2. Reach a Wider Audience: TravelFeed is a Hive frontend dedicated to travel content. By importing your posts, you can reach a larger audience of travel enthusiasts.
  3. Easy Import Process: TravelFeed makes it simple to import your Pinmapple posts. A list of your posts is automatically fetched for you to choose from.
  4. Hive Frontend: TravelFeed is a Hive frontend. Any changes you make to your posts will be visible on other Hive frontends. Any votes and comments you receive from other frontends from Hive users who have linked their Hive account to TravelFeed will also be visible on TravelFeed.


Make sure you have your Hive account linked to your TravelFeed account. If you chose Hive as sign up option, this is done automatically. If you signed up with email or social logins, learn how to link your Hive account here.

Step 1: Access the Import Feature

To begin the import process, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your TravelFeed account or go to your TravelFeed Dashboard if you are already logged in.
  2. Click on 'Drafts' in the sidebar.
  3. Click on 'Import', located next to the 'Published' tab. On mobile, it's a green import icon.
  4. Select 'Pinmapple (Hive)'

Step 2: Select Posts to Import

Once you're on the import page, you'll see a list of all your Pinmapple posts that are not yet imported to TravelFeed fetched automatically. To import the desired posts, follow these steps:

  1. Review the list of your Pinmapple posts.
  2. Select the posts you want to import by checking the boxes next to them.
  3. Click on the 'Import Selected Posts' button (you might need to scroll down to see it) to start the import process.

You can watch the progress as all selected posts are imported one by one. Votes and replies you received from Hive users who have connected their Hive account to TravelFeed will be synced within an hour.

All your posts will now be visible on your TravelFeed profile ('map' tab) as well as on the global TravelFeed map. This can be a bit delayed due to caching. You can even show the map on your own domain if you use TravelFeed Hosting.
