Few New Changes

Recommended Posts

Looks like a few new changes were just put in place - notably in the "log your visit" section of a cache page, cache logs, and the new collectibles tab.

Plus all the TBs and geocoins moved to a new "Collectibles" section, separate to "Geocaches". Plus the abilityt o "hide" collectibles..cool!

I just noticed the changes for collectables too! I was in the middle of checking some out - clicked on a show all hidden, but they had only TBs, and wished there was a seperate section for TBs - a poof! a couple of minutes later it HAPPENED! :anibad:

Firefox does not seem to be too happy with the changes :anibad:

 

Tabs along the top of profiles are missing.

List of items in collectable runs off the box into unseen area.

Looks like there's a glitch along with the new additions - I have 19 hides but it says I have 24.

I have 10, and it says I have 15. I wonder if the difference is always +5?

Yah, big differences in the views between IE and FF. No nice tabs or boxes in FF.

I like the image mouseover

I like the instant hint decrypt

I like the profile page change with the tabs

 

I'm not too sure about the blue wash on the cache page for the logs, but I'll get used to it.

 

Thanks very much, some good improvements.

Heh, now FF looks OK for me.

 

Tracking number on each colectible is ncie addition too, IMO.

I just made a change the sproc so you saw that error at the same time I was making my change.

 

As far as FF goes.. I'm viewing the site in that and I tested it against Opera, Netscape 7 and IE 6 & 7. Try holding down Shift and click the refresh icon.

Is it *intentional* that the hints appear in both encrypted and decrypted form??? (using Firefox, in case that matters)

I've only looked at it in Safari, and I think the new style sheet is forcing rather small text. I need to experiment with it a bit more before I come to a conclusion.

 

BIG PROBLEM, though: All the hints are showing both encryted and decrypted on the same page. I'll look on some other browsers in a bit, but that seemed important enough to suggest a problem (Safari 2.0.1 on OS X Tiger).

Most but not all listing pages showing small text in description with FF 1.5.

Umm. Collectibles - don't you think that might encourage people who find a coin in a cache to keep it?

and Travel Bugs are meant to travel, not to be collected...

 

Overall, I like the changes, so thank you Groundspeak. It would be nice to see the word "Collectibles" change to "Trackables" or "Trackable Items" or something else.

 

"Collectible" does reflect reality, though. ;):anibad:;):blink:

Like most of the changes and its a good upgrade. The only thing I find a bit difficult with my older eyes is the blue on the logs. The text doesn't contrast as well as on white which makes it hard for me to read.

 

But the layout on the cache pages looks great.

Firefox 1.0.7 on Linux pushes the pretty tabs up underneath of the blue text above them and makes it impossible to use them correctly.

The hint decryption works like a charm, the collections tab makes things a lot more organized, and i love the new image preview thing.

 

Thanks Groundspeak! :anibad:

Heh. Good point. I changed it to "Trackables" - if it isn't a word it is now :blink:

Like the changes; nice job. I appreciate the separate tab for TB's and coins since I don't always want to see that stuff.

 

For me, the new condensed format is much more readable, especially on my PDA.

 

Thanks!

Looks great in IE, Firefox 1.0.7 on XP does not show the profile tabs.

Firefox 1.0.7 had some known issues with CSS that were addressed in the 1.5 release.

Good call.... and it'll be in the Oxford English Dictionary in about 6 years too ;)

The tabs on the profile page are just plain not there in both Mozilla and Firefox.

 

Cache logs as black type on a blue background is hard to read for us in the bifocal set.

 

In the print-friendly view, the waypoint number (red letters, upper-right corner) overlays the printed attributes, and the "Additional Hints (Decrypt)" link doesn't actually do anything ... seems to link to a page with "&decrypt=" (no "=y").

Same problem on Firefox 1.0.7 on Windows.

Overall, I like the changes, but they need some tweaking.

 

In Firefox 1.5 for Windows the links top right on cache pages are now simple text links. So are the tabs at the top of profile pages.

 

The very small text on cache pages, and the plain text hints, have already been mentioned.

Getting better. Blue tabs show in FF 1.5 and I see all the nice new blue boxes. The appearance now between Fiefox and IE is almost identical. The changes are great, but I liked the different look of FF before. ©¿©¬

It appears to me (using Netscape 7 on a Mac using 832x624 resolution) that the tabs on the profile page are hidden by the text above.

I beg you. Please, please, PLEASE don't become one of those sites that doesn't work unless I update my browser every month.

Those things are all sorted now - many thanks! :anibad:

Can we add little negative space in the logs so they don't look crammed together?

Quoting myself...

 

Anyway, a cellpadding of 3-5 or so should be plenty in the table that contains the logs. Simple fix what with all the other stuff you're chasing.

In general, I like the changes. However, I'd like to see some whitespace between log entries to improve readability. As they are now, all the log entries on a page seem to run together.

 

I like the color background to the log entries. It sets the logs off from the rest of the page. However, the background is a bit on the dark side. This decreases the contrast between the text and the page reducing readability. A lighter background would reduce the problem.

 

Thanks for the continueing updates.

We don't plan to.. but 1.0.7 of firefox does have bugs. We are using web standard stuff and it just won't render properly in 1.0.7.

The icon for trash.gifdisable listing is somewhat disconcerting :anibad:

Use to be the icon for Archiving though ;)

Like the changes. Was really getting to hate all the icons on the profile sheet but the new "trackables" is perfect. Love how the hint funtion works, the inventory area, and all the mouse overs. The blue is hard to read in the logs though. That is the only thing. You'll understand in another 20 years or so.

The trash can makes sense for archiving, but not for disabling. But I do like the lock also for archiving. I would just go back to the disable log icon for the button.

I really like the changes, though I, too, would like a little space between logs on the cache pages. Did anyone else notice the TB numbers on the bugs you own? Very nice!

 

Thanks Jeremy and crew!

I second the remark above about Firefox 1.0x auto-decrypting the hint. Will check on 1.5 when I get to work. This doesn't bother me much as I always decrypt the hint before I print :anibad: but it might spoil things for some people. Getting JavaScript to work across browsers is such a pain...

It was doing it in FF 1.5 but it's sorted now.

A very minor point:

 

In IE and in Firefox 1.5 the photo links beneath logs on cache pages aren't showing as underlined links. As other links are showing as underlined I imagine this is accidental.
