A-Maze-ing finally got the adoption through for this cache after trying for 11 months. The links don't work and I'm computer illiterate, so if anyone can help me on how to get a link to the maze posted, please let me know. I have it in a PDF file that prints on a single page.

 

First off you need to host the pdf on another website. Then take a look at this, especially the part about creating links to other web pages. Basically it will be something like http://your-web-server.com/some-directory/thisfile.pdf. You might look in to using google documents for the hosting. Good Luck.

The PDF file will need to be hosted on a website and then you insert a hyperlink to that web page.

You can find out how to insert a hyperlink HERE

Sounded interesting so I read some of the cache page and logs. I saw a couple of folks posted find logs suggesting it was an "easy arm chair log". Are those legit? The descriptions indicates there is an actual cache to find. How can you find it from your chair?

I plan on checking the cache log for their signature. If they aren't there, the finds will be deleted. Sorry guys, but there's no such thing as a legitimate arm-chair-find.

Okay - it looks like I should be able to get the PDF hosted and posted okay. The next part will be getting brave enough to change the cache page. I'm afraid to touch it because the HTML code is WAY over my head.

You need to find this in the listing page

<li><a href="http://crimsonwrath.com/Geocaching/A-Maze-ing.pdf"
target="_blank">A-Maze-ing Maze - PDF version</a> - An easy to
print PDF version of the maze to solve.</li>

 

Then on the href="http://crimsonwrath.com/Geocaching/A-Mazin-ing.pdf" you need to substitute the link to your file on your server for the bolded file above. I would also delete this line if your not going to host a text version

 

<li><a href="http://www.crimsonwrath.com/Geocaching/A-Maze-ing.txt"
target="_blank">A-Maze-ing Maze - Text version</a> - Solve this
maze to determine your start coordinates.</li>
