"Search from Here" no longer works.

Recommended Posts

Since few days, the function "Search from Here" located under the map no longer works.

 

Anyone have information about this bug?

Hi,

It's not a BUG.

Look here: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=331883

 

First click on the Waymark to see all description of it.

Scroll down to the end of page, then you see the options.

 

Search for...

Geocaching.com Google Map

Google Maps

MapQuest

Bing Maps

Trails.com Maps

Nearest Waymarks

Nearest Geocaches

Nearest Benchmarks

Nearest Hotels

 

Click on Nearest Waymarks

 

Or you download the KML on the homepage of Waymarking and open it in Google Earth.

Search the coordinats and you see all nearby.

Grtz John.

It's most definitely a bug. If the button doesn't work - which I just confirmed - then the feature is broken. It's likely related to the map change, but there's no way it was intentionally disabled. If it had been intentional, the button would have been removed entirely.

It appears that Dreamhummie misunderstood the original post. I was just noticing the problem today and it definately is unexpected. I would agree that it is likely related to the map change. Does anyone know why they changed the map?

I posted my theory over here. There hasn't been any official word, though, and I wouldn't expect any due to the abandonware-like state of the Waymarking site. All we can do is speculate and just accept that this is how it is now.

I'm guess there has been no update on this?
