Puzzle cache & import pictures

Recommended Posts

I am publishing my first geocaches, one of which is a puzzle. There is no place on the form to indicate it is a puzzle. How do I do this? Also how do I import a picture to use as the background on the cache page? When I import the picture it only shows as a regular jpg file.

Puzzle caches are listed as the "Mystery/Unknown" type.

On the cache editing screen, there is an option to set the background.

The image must reside somewhere on the internet, and the safest place is as an image on your cache page.

After you create the cache page, you can upload the image using "Upload Images" in the upper-right Navigation box. After you upload it, click on the image to get it's URL, then go back and edit the cache page and put the URL in the box for "Background Image URL."
