Visit the directory and enter "coastal" in the search at the top. Click on the category and set the location to "new jersey" in the address bar at the top right. Rejoice. :)

I did just that ; but only 9 lighthouse show up in the search, and two of those are not in NJ, When in actuality there are 11 coastal lights waymarked for NJ

This is what shows on the search

http://www.Waymarking.com/cat/details.aspx...o=True&tp=2

 

likewise I wanted to test downloading locs for NJ's wineries and doing the above only gets me two wineries in actuality there are 24 winery waymarks in NJ ( I know they are mine)

I really need to have all one of a kind when I am searching a state so that I can visit the waymarks in the state I am visiting in in the Categories I like. Please I like the new site but I need the site to still do this type of advanced search like before.

Now if you lived on Staten Island and were looking for a lighthouse 210 miles away you wouldn't find one in the listing.

I was looking at other "Waymark" listings and found only one when there should have been 11 or more. Finally spotted a box that said 1week - and up to 3 years back for listings, but sometime later there was only a box with 10-50-100-200 kms radius. Not very helpful if you want to scan other waymarks.....and what happened to the "time box'? :unsure:

Check your "radius", and make sure it is not restricted to 10 miles. In your case it went as far as 50 miles because there weren't any within 10.

 

Moving to the getting started forum.
