Maps not showing any caches

Recommended Posts

:lostsignal: I had the sam eproblem this morning (in UK) and no caches showed on geocaching maps

 

So I restarted my laptop, and tried again, and they had returned :cool: Looks like the old switch off and switch back on might work :anitongue:

Same thing today in Sweden. Caches when zoomed out, but no popup descriptions. When zooming in - no caches.

And in general - popup descriptions is much harder to get at since previous (?) release of website

OK, back in business now.

Anyone know what caused this?

The caches are showing and always have been BUT recently I have not been able to click on them to get the pop up box and then the cache page. Since I decide where to cache by looking at the map first this is really annoying.

I also can't see any caches on the map. "Live HTTP headers" (Firefox-Addon) reports lots of lots of 404 errors.

 

For example:

I am also not so happy with the geocaching maps lately. Right now I don't see any pop op when you move the mouse over any cache icon. But I have this problem since longer, a couple of weeks, maybe even since monthes now. Some links are showing and some don't. Sometimes it helps to zoom in, but lately even that won't work. Pretty annoying when you're trying to see caches in the neighbourhood you want to visit.....

I hope this issue will get fixed!

Lack of response to mouseover has been an issue for some time for many of us... not "lately". Like Melisesue, it is sometimes the case that certain zones of the screen work, and some do not, and sometimes the case that caches in NO areas of the screen respond to mouseovers.

 

"Jiggling" the map by switching between maps (for those of us who can) sometimes helps. Sometimes panning will change the location of where mouseover does/doesn't work. Sometimes zoom out/in has been known to help.

 

Whatever it is, I have an easily repeatable case if anyone from the great Northwest wants to visit here in Colorado. We've got most of the fires out now.

Tried viewing the map today and none of the caches are appearing. Using Firefox 13.0.1.

This issue appears to be sporadic which may indicate that it is a problem with only one or a small number of servers. It would help us track it down if you mention what server you are on when you see the issue occur. You can find out this information like so:

 

  • The map page source does not include the web server, so navigate from the map page to another page on the site
  • View the web page source using one of these techniques:
    • Right-click on the page and select "View source"
    • Select the View Source menu option:
      • Chrome: Select the "wrench" icon in the upper right, then select"Tools" and click on "View source"
      • Firefox: Select "Tools", then "Web Developer" and then "Page Source"
      • IE: Click the "gear" icon in the upper right, select "F12 Developer Tools", then select "View/Source > Original" from the Developer Tools window

      [*]Use the keyboard shortcut:

      • Chrome and Firefox: Press "Ctrl+U"
      • IE: Press F12, then select "View/Source > Original" from the Developer Tools window

    [*]Scroll down to the bottom of the source and look there for a comment that looks like the following: <!--Server: WEB19; Build: Web.HotFix_20120703.1 -->

The servers are all named "WEBXX", where "XX" is any number between 01 and 21.

I have the maps now showing caches, but I liked the old way where the caches were numbered to the names. Am I missing something or is this feature gone now?

Hello,

Firefox 13.0.1. Ctrl-U but can't find that info anywhere. What am I missing?

Caches just stopped appearing on maps for me in the UK.

 

Same thing here in Sweden again. If I zoom out there's not a single cache

in the whole world. :unsure:

Hello,

 

I'm experiencing the same problem now with Firefox 12.0 and <!-- Server: WEB13; Build: Web.HotFix_20120710.2 --> on two different computers.

 

Before the problem is fixed, is there a way to work around this, e.g. force the site to switch to different server (or at least try)? Thanks.

The only time I log into this forum is for this problem in the last few months, its shocking that its taken so long to track down and fix.

 

Anyway for the record - Server: WEB13; Build: Web.HotFix_20120710.2

CHROME

No pop-ups with Chrome – 2 days ago Server: WEB15; Build: Web.HotFix_20120710.2 Today WEB05; Build: Web.HotFix_20120710.2

IE9

Pop ups OK on IE9 (WEB08; Build: Web.HotFix_20120710.2) but you have to zoom in & wait for page to fully load, which is quite slow but better than nothing!

Just noticed caches being gone from the map again, like they did a week ago.

Exactly the same problem and server. The map page isn't showing the server id, the page where I hit "View larger map" did.

 

10 min later: no bubbles. But I noticed that when I zoom out a few clicks (scale: 5km/2mi), the pop-ups (cache names) appear if I find the right spot on the empty map.

 

35 min later: no bubbles, tried Chrome and FF on Win 7

 

1h 30 min later: new server WEB14 and all is well!

Hello,

 

I am currently having an issue where if I click on the show large map for the cache not one cache shows.

 

A shame really as we off on a big walk and I was looking if there may be any near to veer off towards.

No caches showing up for me either. This happens every so often. I also have the problem with the bubble not showing up when I hover over the cache. I've logged off and then back on and tried Chrome and Internet Explorer. It was OK earlier about 7 am. I'm in Fullerton, CA USA
