  1. I've had a look at this, and it's not related to GME. I switched off Greasemonkey, so I was just using the plain website, with no scripts, then did a filtered search. When I clicked the "Map These Geocaches" button, it worked about 50% of the time, showing just the four caches from my search. The rest of the time, the four caches appeared, then disappeared to be replaced by the normal, unfiltered map. An intermittent fault like this implies that either its another overloading problem, similar to the issues GME was having, or that some of Groundspeak's servers are configured differently to others, and it's pot luck which you get.
  2. Have now regressed the script back to 7.3.2 and all works OK once again on Laptop and PC..... Not sure what to do now...?
  3. OK here is what I have just done. 1. On another PC where I had not installed the latest 7.3.3 version of the GME script I tested the Filter process and maps and it all works OK. 2. I then updated that PC with the latest GME script 7.3.3 and tried the Filter process again and sure enough this time the map shows ALL geocaches not just those in the Filter... so there is an issue with the 7.3.3 version of the script. I have to assume that there is some sort of bug in the latest script? I am now about to regress the script on the original Laptop back to 7.3.2 to see if that proves it works once again on the old version. I do not know what else to do other than report the problems I have found today.
  4. Well I found what The GC Little Helper is by I do not have this script installed and still have the problem I reported??? Any other ideas please?
  5. Whats the GC Little Helper script please?????????? and where do I find it?
  6. It may or not be related to the automatic update of the GME script today but when I do a search for caches via the Play button then select Filters and enter something like Church Micro in the selection box I get the required number of caches returned BUT then when I select Map these Geocaches I get a full screen (OS map style) showing ALL caches i.e not just those in the Filter??? I am sure this feature was working yesterday..... Is it related to the GME script please or is it yet another issue with the Groundspeak staff playing with the maps again??
  7. There is a much simpler solution using a couple of GSAK macros. If you want to know how its done please contact me directly...... it really is simple and still works a treat. Cheers for now.
  8. I've just done this and it works! A massive thanks to you JimJinks. And it's stopped working again....
  9. If you go to the GSAK forum and search for the OS Map issue you will find that it has been "solved" for the present by using a slightly different GSAK Macro (how it's done is described clearly when you find the item and it's all very easy to follow) For the moment then no more worries about getting your own API key etc etc etc
  10. Same here. OS Maps have stopped working in GSAK for some reason. Have applied all the latest patches etc. Looks like BING are doing all they can to prevent users from using alternative mapping OR to ensure users have to sign up for a key.... leading to more cost to users eventually maybe? Who knows?
  11. The only reason we were looking is that quite a few "Challenge" caches require confirmation of a find (even if it's Archived).... not everybody keeps logs of everything they have ever done on Geocaching including a find date etc so a quick and simple search was all we wanted...... OK so we have found that now but it was not intuative nor was the attitude of Groundspeak towards Archived caches known to us. So we will leve it there thanks.
  12. Ah ha..... so intuative (NOT) is this new search feature. To find an Archived cache you DON'T use the new search panel at all..... you have to go back to the main Geocaching home page..... THEN use the search "feature" on the right hand side (which normally has your home coordinates in it). Remove the coordinates and enter the GC code you are looking for then press the search magnifying glass icon next to it.... Simples (Huh!) Now of course that makes perfect sense.... don't use the new search feature .... use the old one. Doh!! Thanks to all who responded.... hope Geocaching.com take a look at this weird way of searching for Archived caches. Yah, but if you want to feel like you're using a new part of the website click the "play" (with its fancy new drop down menu) at the top on any GC page then click "log a geocache" you'll be taken to yet another search asking for a GC code, this search will also take you to the archived cache. Oh Wow..... now why didn't we think of that? Just cannot figure out why the "main" search feature (that says Search the millions of geocaches worldwide.)does not return the archived cache when a specific GC code is entered ... surely it's using the same search engine/function?

  14. Roman We have entered the GC code into the main search box on the Geocaching Home page and made sure that no filters are set.... but still no Archived caches come up in the list just a load of others..... where is the 1 that you refer to please? Surely it cannot be this hard can it? Thanks
  15. Roman! Please explain what you meant by saying that Keystone was right and that we were not using the correct search please? What should we be doing..... and is it documented? Thanks
  16. Well that does not work actually..... all it does is return other caches but NOT the archived cache. Try searching for GC55H55 (which is called The Ballad of Molly Mogg) and see if it comes up in the found listing..... it does not for us.
  17. The new search feature does not return details of an Archived cache...... which makes some research to confirm meeting a secific challenge cache very difficult. The only way we appear to be able to do this is to use Google and use the GC number of the Archived cache. The previous search facility always returned details of any archived cache. Is this an oversight or a "new feature" please?
  18. Thanks so much JRI ... was going round the bend when this was broken last night....whatever happened to continuity and product testing by the Geocaching systems team. In my day (40 years experience in computers before retirement) no changes would be allowed to be made without FULL testing of all elements before product release. Regards Mr Wendykmj
