Archived or locked cache.

Recommended Posts

Is there a difference between an archived and a locked cache?

One of my caches is archived, and also locked.

The reason is simply that I want to grab some of the code their, instead of retyping the html again.

 

Thanks in advance,

longW

An archived cache page can be locked, but not usually. There is usually a good reason why the page would be locked.

 

The username "longW" seems to have 3 cache hides, none of which is archived. What cache are you asking about?

don't see any archived caches in your profile. if it it archived it cannot be edited. if it is locked, there cannot be any new logs posted. if you need the code, you can grab it from "view source" by right clicking it.

Thank you for all your answers. I reply to this one, because it covers all topics.

 

I was assuming there is a difference, but I couldn't find any information.

The cache in question was never published, but archived as it is and is now locked.

I have no imagination why this might be necessary at all.

It seems that the issues regarding that cache are no longer meant to be discussed.

 

I will not say more, because I am not going public about it.

 

About the code: I know how to grab it, but usually I got a dishwasher-load of it, while I only need the spoon.

The website transfers or eliminates some tags, and I like to get access to what I have written and tested there.

And this was never an issue.

 

Again, thank you all for your answers and interests.

I wasn't aware that you were really looking into it.

If I understand the process correctly, an unarchived cache (even if it is unpublished) reserves a location in the Groundspeak database. When reviewers check for saturation issues, your unpublished, unarchived cache could prevent another cacher from hiding a new cache in a nearby spot. Perhaps the reviewer archived it to eliminate this potential problem.

Generally the reviewer will send an email inquiring as to your plans for the cache. I'm sure if they don't get a reply they will archive the unpublished cache and publish the ready to go cache.

The reviewer archived the cache because it would bug his queue.

This is the last information I got.

Now my cache is both archived and locked, with all the consequence I now know about.

Open the cache page in something like Nvu or any other freeware WYSIWYG html editor, and just cut and paste the bits you want to keep :)

I already grabbed it.

It was this line, where I adjusted the margins:

<img src=
"http://img.geocaching.com/cache/882c6a8f-8116-4e17-872a-5f63f2247d13.jpg"
style=
"margin-left: 20px; margin-right: 20px; margin-top: 42px; margin-bottom: 37px;float: center; width: 440px; height: 330px;" />

The GPX file contains your HTML code exactly as written, although some tags may be changed. It contains none of the other code for the cache page. I think that is what you want.

And is this not working like you expect it to?

The code works, I have written it.

But I could not get the line from the locked cache, so I had to dive through the complete source to find the in fact only 3 numbers.

 

@fizzymagic: No GPX involved at all, just the site's editor with html switched on.

Once a cache, any cache, is archived, the owner can no longer edit it. That's just the way it is. I would suggest that if you are writing a lot of code, keep a local copy.

Your cache was not archived.

 

Your reviewer was reviewing during the evening hours and did not want to publish your cache at night because of its location.  So, he left the following note on your cache page:

 

Quote

Hi MasonMinion,

I just checked your cache and it is ready to be published.

In order to protect the area the cache is hidden in and to avoid cachers running to find your cache when they shouldn't, I will publish it tomorrow (approximately 11:00 Eastern Time on 09/02/2019). Until that time, the listing will be locked. Should you need to make urgent changes, please contact me directly.

 

Locking the cache keeps the page from being edited after the review process is completed.

 

Was there anything unclear about the reviewer's note?

Your reviewer saw the location and decided it was closed at night. So to avoid people searching at night he opted to publish in the morning.

He locked it so he would not have to do as complete review the next morning. He asked you to contact him if you wanted to make changes before he published it today.
