Maybe I'm dumb, but I still cannot find the IP thing. I see the static map on the home page (maybe 300x300 in size) and the search for caches box, which has a WA zipcode filled in. Is that it? If so, it has me 3000 miles off.

 

It's not something I'll really use, but I'm curious if that's the right thing.

I reckon we're dumb. I can't figure it out.

The static map in the box on the home page is supposed to be centered on your IP location.

Ok, I've fixed the YAHOO.util.Selector issue. The secondary problem is the fact that the two images that are used in the cache details page are 800px wide. So, if you've got your browser sized smaller than 800px, then it's going to wrap the html.

 

OK, the error is gone.

 

But my browser is not sized smaller than 800 pixels and it is still kicking the left nav bar to the bottom.

 

The page with the error had a large image. But the page I orginally noted doesn't have any large images.

 

Could this just be an IE 6 issue?

Mine sure isn't fixed! :) I can't even read any of the coords on some of the pages. My old mac clamshell is almost as bad. It means I can't go to look for any FTF or even any new caches or old ones for that matter

 

Is someone working on a fix for this?

 

I sure hope so. I seriously don't want to be told that the fix is firefox or IE7 as I don't want either on this computer. No problems prior to the update on Friday

The system locates me in Germany although I am living in Belgium...

 

Nice feature, but wouldn't it be an option to use the home coordinates entered in the users profile ?

 

What's the fun in showing something statically that might be right some of the time, if you can do it dynamically wrong most of the time? :)

 

I believe they are using a beta version of Vinnie's Time-Space Portal technology. It has transported me from Washington State to Maine :(

 

I think you'll love Maine though..... :D

I'm getting the problem both at home and at work. Both use IE6. Seems sporadic though... some pages pull up fine, others don't. It is impacting both cache pages and player profile pages for me. :(

The Geo-IP was working great for a couple of days, but for the last week and a half it has me located in Washington State - The same as what some other people are seeing. It's off by over 3000 miles. I am in Ontario, Canada. Anything I can do on my end. I am on a home network and not at a business.

It's clearly been switched off (the url of the map shows it's locally hosted on the gc.com server, not a dynamic google map). Presumably they switched it off because of all the problems precisely pinning people down accurately enough for geocaching purposes?

Is it me or does this profile page display skewed to the right with zip horizontal scrolling ability?

If it's not just me is this a site problem or an html problem that the member has created?

Its not working for me.

 

Its a known problem for those using IE6 and is in the fix that was rolled out on 11/13. That release wasn't stable so they said they would try it again this week. I sure hope it works as I'm getting mighty tired of it and can't read the coords a lot of the time.
