Release Notes - September 4, 2013

Recommended Posts

Today marks an "end to summer in Seattle" release with crossing t's and dotting i's in bug fixes and other behind-the-scenes work. Geocachers will mostly notice updates such as:

 

  • The latest and greatest page translations to the more than dozen languages supported on Geocaching.com.
  • Favorite Points have been added to the printed geocache details page.

I am finding that I can not assign a favorite point to a cache I found. I am a premium member. Any one else have this issue?

I just added and removed a point from a cache. Firefox 23.0.1

When did Premium Caches stop appearing on the maps for Non-Premium members?

 

Seeing them is very helpful to me when considering new hides and the ability to see if a Premium cache is near or would be blocking my placement. Or to help me decide if I wanted to buy the premium membership by seeing if there are many in the areas around me that would be available if I was Premium.

As mentioned in another thread, PMO caches don't appear on maps even for premium members at certain zoom levels. Noted as a bug.

 

Do they appear if you zoom in?

Does anyone here know if a change was made recently that disabled the sending of emails when you now authorize GSP via the API?

 

The website I run uses a GC login plugin that leverages the API. Everytime a user logs in, it would present the "authorize" screen from GSP's API, and then send them an email if they clicked allow. It seems these emails are no longer sent. I'm just wondering if this was intentional or by accident. I actually prefer not to get the email but am just wondering if it should be doing that.

I tried all zoom levels and they don't appear at any one of them. I used Firefox and Chrome to try it.

We have a bug in for the issue of PMO caches not appearing for any members when viewing the non-personalized map levels (i.e. when zoomed out). On the personalized levels (i.e. when zoomed in), PMO caches do not display for basic members by design.

It turns out that this was intentionally turned off by the engineering team working on geocaching labs. Many users found the emails annoying and unnecessary.

I really like the big SMILEY or the big DNF at the top of the page. I was wondering if something like that could be done for trackables. Something like logged it or tracked it or something telling me that I have already logged it.

Hey Bowlr-

 

Thanks for the feedback. The idea of a similar functionality for Trackables has been previously requested and is in our backlog of ideas that we would like to implement on the site.

 

I will be locking this forum now, as we just had a new release on the site, please see the new Release Notes for September 17th.
