    One wonders at times the reason why someone would want to change their username. In this case there is an appropriate reason based on my research on Google.


    “Uppercase delta (Δ) at most times means “change” or “the change” in mat

    Containing special not allowed characters maybe.


    Which is what I was asking.

    Is a space still allowed?

  2. Using Urwigo, is it possible to include other .lua files?

    A quick Google suggests this should be possible:




    but when I tried (with the .lua file in the same directory as the .urwigo file), I got a linker error on compilation.


  3. Wow that's quite a reply!


    All I needed to know really was if a decimal  comma is used instead of a decimal point.

    The reason I ask, is that I intent to make some of my Wherigos play-anywhere and reusable. The plan is the player (person) will go to their planned final location and request a code.

    The code will be the current location encrypted in some way but with the decimal point replaced with a letter. Obviously, I'd need to ensure that the correct decimal separator is used when converting back.




  4. My latest Wherigo creation has an item in the inventory which has a 'power level'.
    When the item is open, the power goes down. When it is not open the power builds back up again.
    I do this by having a 'close' button on the item which sets a 'recharging=true' flag and then shows to the main screen.
    An interval timer then checks the state of the of the recharging flag and incrments a counter
    This does, of course, work fine because I wrote it and I tested it. However, if someone were to click the back button or home button (depending on the device), the recharging=true flag won't get set.
    So, my question is: Is there a way of detecting when the main screen is being displayed or when an item is no longer being displayed?
    I thought maybe the item.opened flag might indicate if an item is open but doesn't look like it

    I'm using Urwigo builder and it's possible there is an un-implemented attribute I need to access in code

    The web maps, both the Search Map & Browse Map, have never not included preview-icons of PMO caches for Basic Members for a long time. Instead they have always included all non-PMO caches.


    On the mobile app, Basic members can see greyed out icons for non-PMO caches that are behind the paywall, due to higher D/T ratings. It doesn't include preview-icons of PMO caches.


    The new search results didn't change that or what is shown on the map. Some of the default filter settings changed, so maybe you could verify whether that causes the difference in what you are seeing.

    That said, it'd be great if you could provide more detail on what you see now vs what you believe to have seen before. 




    Thanks for the explanation.
    The cache I could see greyed-out was indeed a non-pmo higher difficulty.

    We've only stopped being paying members this year (after fifteen years), so it's taking a bit of getting used to.

    Our own owned caches are still PMO so not even visible to us.


  6. I wasn't aware of this change until yesterday.
    Although it's something I thought I wanted (after receiving  nasty comments in a private message from some idiot who had only just discovered caching), I'm not sure I like it

    Someone with 60K+ finds published a couple of events in my notification area yesterday, well outside their usual area.
    They are not a team I know of, and having everything locked down seems very unfriendly.

    Wait, so you can't give zones a specific name, like "lobby" or "church"? Doesn't that get confusing? Or am I missing something? Apologies if I'm barking down the wrong river, I saw the post and had flashbacks to my old programming classes and the importance of good variable names for code documentation.

    I suspect it's to make it harder for the code to be read if it is decompiled. :)

    “zone” is simply the name of a variable that they have declared. You have not declared this variable and thus you are getting that error. 

    You need to replace “zone” with the name of the variable storing the zone you want to adjust. For example, “zoneABC”. 

    Surely 'zone' is the variable passed as a parameter to the function.

    That's right - Geocaching HQ chose not to include this search link on the new Dashboard.


    I suggest customizing the home page search tool for just the way you like it, and then bookmarking the URL for that search.

    I had a set of urls for shortcuts to various searches etc and I wrote a Tampermonkey script to change the main menu links to something useful.
    Unfortunately, the recent change to the way the menu works has completely screwed-up my script! :mad:
    I don't know what was to be gained changing the menu so it is all written dynamically :huh:
