how to find the GUID for a trackable?

Recommended Posts

On the Groundspeak support/help www page, under trackables-fancier features, section 2.2

2.2. Displaying Several Trackables on the Same Page, Good For Races

 

the following instructions appear...

 

1. Find the GUID of all the Trackables you want to include.

2. Insert that GUID at the end of this URL format:

http://img.geocaching.com/stats/tb.aspx?guid=96d1611496d16114-beb

That is, in the above example, replace everything after "guid=" with the guid number of your own Trackable Items.

 

My question is… How do you find the GUID of a trackable? Is the GUID the number on the coin itself? Or is it the reference ID “TB12345”? or something else?

It is neither, it is a code for the home page of the trackable. For instance your "Tiki Man" TB has a GUID of 4116655

OK, so then do you have any idea why this html snippet (as per the support note) doesn't work?

TB has a GUID of 4116655

 

that's not a guid, that's an Id number

 

A guid Id is going to be 32 characters long, with 4 dashes

 

If you post a log to your own trackable, you'll see that guid as part of URL of the log page.

 

I went to post a log on your Tiki Man TB

 

the log page URL looks like this:

 

 

http://www.geocaching.com/track/log.aspx?wid=8431a9b0-8ed3-4f1b-85bd-f6e052828cca

 

8431a9b0-8ed3-4f1b-85bd-f6e052828cca that's the GUID

 

You'll find that if you click the trackable name, FROM the log page, you'll be sent back to the trackable page, with the GUID used in the URL.

Sorry I didn't understand that you wanted a link to the image and not the home page
