Major Release

Recommended Posts

  • If there is more than one geocoin type in a cache it shows as a stacked coin. Hovering over the coin shows the types and numbers of geocoins in the cache. This was to fix the issue where too many coins would change the look of the page.
     
  • Added Bookmark Lists on the cache listing's page if that cache has a shared and public bookmark.
     
  • Bookmark Lists now show distance to user and direction, as well as the status (archived, disabled, etc)
     
  • Adding a bookmark to a list now makes the bookmark list in the dropdown the default for other bookmark adds. This is great for the Google Earth feature and/or reduces the time to add bookmarks.
     
  • Added a public checkbox to bookmark lists to allow for listing on cache pages. Bookmark lists must be both sharable and public to be viewed on a cache page.
     
  • Cache Page: Changed Travel Bugs to only show 3 on the page. If there are more a link is provided to the rest. This is so the page is not overtaken on pages that have many listings at once.
     
  • Cache Page: You must now log in before you can see coordinates for cache listings.
     
  • Added PQ Generation for bookmark lists and created various links around the site for generating these PQs.
     
  • My Account Page: Changed the placement of functions on the page to make them more readable.
     
  • My Account Page: Added a Premium Features section and included the Insta-Notify service.
     
  • New Logs: After you post a log the date is made into a default for the next log entry. This is stored in the current session and will reset after closing the browser window or being logged out.
     
  • Added the "view my stat bar" page to the my account section to help people build the html for the stat bar on their own web pages.
     
  • Updated max number of pocket queries to 40. No change on the per day pocket query creation.
     
  • Updated bookmark lists to 20 and bookmark list items to 100. The number will increase after we add paging to the bookmark lists page to up to 500, but for now it sits at 100.
     
  • Corrected an error in Bookmark Lists when the page incorrectly stated that you had exceeded your number of bookmark lists. This happened when the site didn't recognize you were logged in.
     
  • Pocket Queries can now be created from Bookmark Lists. It is a good way to plan out a day by adding the items to the list and creating a pocket query from them.
     
  • Pocket Queries: Added run options. You can now uncheck a Pocket Query after it runs for that day, delete the pocket query after it runs, or have it run every week. The default is to run once and then uncheck itself.
     
  • Google Earth KML features: From your account page you can run an account-specific kml file for Google Earth browsing of cache pages. You can also download a KML file from a Bookmark List, and a KML file for a Travel Bug's travels.

Minor changes

  • Moved the remember me checkbox on the login page to sit above the login button
     
  • The username link in the upper right corner was broken when in the /my area of the site.
     
  • Corrected an issue with the ampersand & getting shown incorrectly for travel bugs as &

Some minor changes in a patch today:

 

1. The adopt feature at http://www.geocaching.com/adopt was broken and was corrected.

2. Your bookmark lists and the other bookmark lists are now separate on the cache details page. Some folks got freaked out when their ignore lists were showing up on the list and thought they were being seen by other people. They were not and this makes it more obvious.

3. On the cache details page, the travel bug list now goes out to 20 travel bugs instead of 3 maximum bugs listed. We still need a better secondary page that shows all the travel bugs currently in the cache before we can lower it to 3 again.

 

We're aware that some of the tables on the left-hand side of the cache details page can occasionally overlap the items on the right. This had to do with how html aligns tables on web pages. We'll work on a way to correct it from overlapping.
