Adding your Waymarking.com Statistics to your Geocaching Profile

Recommended Posts

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 Waymarking.com statistics in my geocaching.com profile (and vice versa), and on my own family web site (under Hobbies).

Thank you very much. I tested it and works. :)

 

I wonder why Groundspeak has never combined Waymarking stats with Geocaching stats or, at least, add a 'Waymarking' tab right next to 'Statisctics' in the public profile. I think, this could satisfy some of those that misses virtuals and asks for the returning of them.

A couple of years ago...well maybe it's actually three or four, but who's counting...there was a proclamation that we should get ready for the upcoming Groundspeak 2.0 website which would integrate Whymarking with Geocaching, and bring all the stats and everything under one big beach umbrella.

 

It didn't happen...or at least it hasn't happened yet.

Yeah, it'll take so long for that new version of the site to come out, I bet Lance Armstrong will admit to doping before it happens!

 

Wait....
