Release Notes 2/11/09

Recommended Posts

I just noticed when I have logged a cache as found, and add waypoint info to the log, it does not show up when I use the print pages feature with my log like it use to.

I like to print out my logs to keep in my scrap book. Also, I thought it was useful information for others who took the printed logs with them in the field.

I hope you bring that feature back.

 

Thank you

Hi,

This is an important thing done by the people. They did the hard work at this stage.

I wasn't quite awake this morning, and I clicked on managing location by accident. I saw a cool google map page and when I tried to use it and clarify my home coordinates I got this error

 

System.Exception: Error in decoding latitude at Tucson.WebApp.Common.account.ManageLocations.uxSaveLocation_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)

 

I cleaned out my cookies, relogged in and got the same message

 

Using Vista 64 and firefox 3.0.8

Can somebody kick start the HTML parser? <a href> tags are currently being striped out of cache descriptions again.

 

I copy and paste the document into a word document and then print. You can print

only the information that you need.

Hope this helps.

Nice all those improvements

Is it also possible when you choose to decrypt the additional hints, that they appear decrypted on the print-friendly-page?

NEW PROBLEM FOUND! MAYBE!

 

Not sure if this has been mentioned here or caught by another, but......

 

While looking at "My Friends" list, it came to my attention that the number of "hides" under their respective names are WRONG!

 

When I go to their respective profile pages, their number of hides are correct, but it doesn't correspond to the number given on the "My Friends" list page. The number of "finds" are correct, but the number of "hides" are not.

 

Has anyone else noticed this problem?

Very old issue, originally used as the reason to get rid of the 'statistics' on the Friends display...but people screamed so badly that TPTB put it back explaining that it would still be wrong, which people didn't care about as long as the numbers were there.

Let me get this straight, people wanted the numbers back on there but didn't care if they were correct or not?

 

That doesn't make since, but oh well. Not really a big issue for me because I don't normally go by those, I just access the list so I can go to their profiles.

 

Thanks for the explanation.

Not everyone's numbers were wrong, for some reason. And, I think, people wanted the numbers there so there would be a better chance that the problem would be fixed. If they were gone entirely, then there would be nothing to fix. They were afraid they would never come back.
