Tune Up Your Browser, Geocacher!

Hi all!

 

Take a look at Greasemonkey Scripts

 

These scripts let you enhance your geocaching.com pages and also

these forum pages. I can only recommend, they are really good, I've been

using those scripts already quite a long.

 

Regards, Olli

Some of those scripts seem to be very handy. You have to install Greasemonkey Firefox extension first from here. Then you can install scripts you want by right-clicking their icon.

Heips,

I started experiencing the scripts and first thing was to upgrade my old FireFox to more current level. Secondly I tried to install GreaseMonkey sw but received a msg 'Software installation is disabled....'.

I was unable to find any button in Firefox options to enable sw installation until I found this and was able to get it work.

Unbelievably even I was able to make it work !!

 

Scripts are very handy !!

 

EDIT: xlated to my poor english !

I wish I knew what scripts were. Maybe it would be helpful. :anibad:

I've also created a few scripts that help you generally in geocaching. You can find them here: http://userscripts.org/users/25312;scripts

 

First script adds a text link to Google Maps-page, that opens a view to Kansalaisen Karttapaikka from that location.

 

Second one add's a text link to Panoramio's Map page to list geocaches nearby from geocaching.com.

 

Drop me a line if you find them useful, also, suggestions to new scripts are also welcome ! :unsure:

I am a user of several of the scripts in the OP too. They do add to the functionality of GC.com!

I've released new greasemonkey script, which helps a lot when grabbing maps from kansalaisen karttapaikka with fetch_map-tool. It creates a complete batch command of the current location of Karttapaikka, that can be used directly for the fetch_map.

 

You can find the script here: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/8621

Everybody seems to agree that these scripts are very handy and nice but could somebody please tell us n00bs what they actually are so we can consider if they are something we might pursue getting?

For example the More Maps-script adds additional maps to the cache page. One which I have found useful is the one which shows the driving instructions and distance to the cache.

Other useful script is by Kino (Google Maps -> Karttapaikka). At the moment, there is no Karttapaikka link in the additional waypoints -page (parking, for example) although it has been asked for. In the additional waypoints -page, you can zoom in using Google maps, and then see the same place in Karttapaikka map just by clicking the link!

Have a go and see what you like! :unsure:

 

(Edit: added Kino's script.)

Ok, I created a list of useful scripts in geocaching to geocaching.fi wiki. You can find the list here

 

And if you know some other scripts, you can add them to wiki. :blink:

After the latest modifications at GC.com, MoreMaps-script doesn't seem to work anymore... :ph34r:

Any idea how to fix this?

There is a new version available, which works after the latest GC.com upgrade :laughing:

One of those scripts makes cache gallery images larger, but if there's a spoiler image in the gallery, Greasemonkey makes also it larger and it's not fun! I recommend disabling Greasemonkey before opening the gallery first time...

Is there a script that creates a link on the GC cachepage so that we can open that cache spesific location directly in Google Earth ?
