Adding your Waymarking Statistics to your Geocaching Profile

8 posts in this topic

I'm sorry if someone has already posted a "how to" on this before. But I thought I'd show it to folks who may not be aware that they can see their Waymarking.com statistics on their geocaching profile page -- or for that matter, on any web page.

 

  1. On the main Waymarking page, click on the Profile selection on the top bar to get to your profile.
  2. Note that your statistics show up in a nice box in the upper right.
    It is actually a "dynamic image" that is constructed when it is shown by the browser.
  3. Under that box is a link that says add these stats to your own website.
    Click that link.
  4. You are presented with a text box that has the HTML to not only include that image, but also provide a link to your Waymarking.com profile, when the viewer clicks on the image itself.
  5. You can select all of the text in that text box and paste it into anything that recognizes HTML, including your geocaching.com Profile text box, or a page on your personal website.
  6. HOWEVER, the HTML has a bug in it!
    At one point you will see <img src="'/images/.....
    But it should read: <img src="'http://www.Waymarking.com/images/.....
    It is missing the http://www.Waymarking.com before the /images.
    So remember to fix it either before copying from the text box, or after pasting into the destination.

That's all it takes. I put my statistics in my geocaching.com profile, and on my own family web site (under Hobbies).

If you'd like, I can also show you how to include the little Waymarking "medals" also. It is more of a manual process. That is, you have to remember to add a new medal to any non-Waymarking.com web page when you earn it, since it is not a dynamically constructed image. It is a series of small individual images.

Je ne sais pas pourquoi, mais la source de l'image (caractères gras au dessus) est vide dans le code de votre profil.

Essaye avec ce lien :

<a href="http://www.Waymarking.com/users/profile.aspx?f=1&guid=ebf285e5-f2e8-4377-84b9-50b5269e073e"><img src="http://www.Waymarking.com/dyn_img/stats.aspx?f=1&guid=ebf285e5-f2e8-4377-84b9-50b5269e073e" border="0" width="200" height="50"></a>

Les noms de domaine sont case sensitive, il y avait un espace entre le .com et le /dyn et le mélange des apostrophes et des guillemets n'est pas heureux.

Voilà le résultat en ligne : http://www.ged-info.net/lyspaul.html
