Greetings Geocachers! The following is a list of cases resolved in the latest website update. Please let us know in this thread if you notice anything unusual happening as a result of the fixes detailed below. All unrelated issues should be reported on our feedback site located at: http://feedback.geocaching.com. Thanks!


Introducing Geocaching for Windows Phone 7 Mobile Application

Windows Phone 7 uses a combination of GPS, Wi-Fi positioning and cell towers to determine your approximate location. Groundspeak's Windows Phone 7 Application then queries the Geocaching.com database in real-time and provides a list of geocaches near you. Check out the Geocaching for Windows Phone 7 application page for a full list of features!

Souvenirs

We now have the capability to award Souvenirs retroactively! Souvenirs will be awarded in batches over the next several weeks. If you logged a geocache in the past that would have awarded a Souvenir it will automatically appear on your profile tab.

WYSIWYG

What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get makes a reappearance in this month's release. This time you'll find the new simplified text editor added to the geocache and Trackables logging page. In the next release we'll finish the job by adding a more feature-rich version to the cache details and profile pages.


The WYSIWYG editor for cache logs created some unanticipated issues. This feature was rolled back for further research.

Reformatted coordinate change logs for clarity

Added additional text at Coordinates field to help explain the default values

20792: Localize Your Profile

Before all the comments start flowing, I want to thank all the developers for their hard work. I always feel my $30 is well worth all the work that happens each month.

This is related to the language translations I believe. We'll get that fixed asap.

I see that one of the features that was added was retroactive souvenirs. Since I was one of the many recipients of the Delaware State and Baden-Wurttemburg souvenirs yesterday I just checked my profile. They're both still there, but the links to the full artwork are producing an error page with:

There is no souvenir in the database that that matches your request.

In fact, the 10/10/10 souvenir, which was working yesterday, also produces that error.

All three links are going the the following url:

http://www.geocaching.com/souvenir/?guid=00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000


I looked at Moun10Bike's profile and all of their souvenirs are using the same URL.

There are still no line breaks in all non-html listings.

yep does not seem to be excepting bbcode any more and any old logs that contained are now showing the tags rather than the formatting which is making everything some what messy :)

A couple of these issues (view larger map, encrypt/decrypt) I suspect simply need a browser refresh to fix, as I cannot reproduce them. Please make sure you close and reopen your browser before reporting a bug.

Other bugs we're currently working on:

-Line feeds in cache logs/print friendly pages
-Find counts on cache pages
-Image upload

Regarding BBCode, it will no longer work and we have a script to convert the old code to HTML. We need to wait and do the conversion slowly because to convert that many logs at once would be insane. Please just leave the logs as they are and we'll do the conversion over time.

These should be sorted out very soon. Thanks for all your patience and feedback!

I also get the blank map box when trying to view a map of an area. I have signed out of GC.com and back in to see it that would help. No luck.....

On the map screen, over above the filter box it has a link for me to Upgrade, but I am already a premium member. I don't know if those are related or not.

Thanks for all ya'll do for us on these great sites.

...and the wysiwyg editor wraps everything in paragraph tags by default which adds extra white space.
I thought we'd covered that after the release some time ago...

I noticed that several of the Smilies in the new Wysiwyg editor are missing the actual image file, so don't show. Verified in Opera and Firefox, so I guess they're really missing. :)

I hope, there will be a way how to post formatted logs (speaking about newlines) from mobile browsers, that does not support WYSIWYG editor. I really hope!
(No, writing HTML tags on mobile phone keyboard is not a solution)

It looks like the issue might be related to finding the caches on the larger map. In Firefox I do get the map, but it hangs looking for the caches. In Internet Explorer nothing at all.

Well ... "thank you" :) for trashing all formatting (line breaks, bold/italic/coloured text) in each and every log entry I (and everyone else, of course) ever wrote!! :) :)

Assuming that the database itself is unchanged, I really hope (actually, I _expect_ it) that this display error will be fixed ASAP!

All the links to "Geochecker.com." are not working properly.
When you arrive at the site you get the message that you are visiting "this site without coordinates to check". Was working fine this morning.

Still getting a blank map in the box and none of the other maps work either. I have shut down and rebooted but they still do not come up. I Thank you for all you do but I hope you get this fixed.

A couple of these issues (view larger map, encrypt/decrypt) I suspect simply need a browser refresh to fix, as I cannot reproduce them. Please make sure you close and reopen your browser before reporting a bug.


These should be sorted out very soon. Thanks for all your patience and feedback!



I also get the blank box on the map page. Over above the filter box it has a link for me to up grade to Premium, but I am already a Premium member.

I am not for sure if those two are related.

Thanks for all that ya'll do on these great websites.


Same for me.
In Chrome everything seems to work fine, but in IE, the map is just blank and there is an upgrade link above the filters-box (but the filters can still be modified and I am already a Premium Member)

I usually only use Chrome, but wanted to test in IE as people seemed to have problems there..

The update appears to have messed with the HTML code for images within cache pages. Some of my cache pages have images that are right-aligned (or left-) within the text, and that code is being ignored - the images are now appearing separate from the paragraphs, surrounded by white space. Not good!

Examples:
Spur by the Marsh (image should be on right side of text block, as coded in <img> tag)
Shy Bear Pass

This break in the HTML code has really messed up the formatting of my cache pages. Is it on the list to be fixed?

In case it's a browser thang, I'm using Safari 4.1.2.

Don't worry, we will get this fixed today. For now you can use Firefox or Chrome. Who knows, you might like it!

All the links to "Geochecker.com." are not working properly.
When you arrive at the site you get the message that you are visiting "this site without coordinates to check". Was working fine this morning.


This looks like the ampersands (&) in the URL are getting html encoded to & and geochecker doesn't like that. No way to fix. Updating the link doesn't help.

Also HTML image mapping is messed up - on one of my puzzle listings I have an image on which I have mapped a link (onto a big red "Hint" button). Worked pre update, not clickable now.

Regarding BBCode, it will no longer work and we have a script to convert the old code to HTML. We need to wait and do the conversion slowly because to convert that many logs at once would be insane. Please just leave the logs as they are and we'll do the conversion over time.
Does that mean we need to start using HTML rather than BBCode in our logs? And do we need to use <br> and <p> rather than normal newlines?

Well ... "thank you" :) for trashing all formatting (line breaks, bold/italic/coloured text) in each and every log entry I (and everyone else, of course) ever wrote!! :) :)

Assuming that the database itself is unchanged, I really hope (actually, I _expect_ it) that this display error will be fixed ASAP!


I have YEARS OF and THOUSANDS OF logs that now have useless characters displaying instead of the BOLD, ITALICS, UNDERLINE and COLOR. What is that?

I'm getting a 500 error when I try to upload an image to a logged cache. I've encountered the error in Firefox 3.6.12 and in Safari Version 5.0.2 (6533.18.5). The process works until I click the Upload button. At that point, the browser goes to http://www.geocachin...m/error/500.htm.

Thanks.
