Adding Image to 'Description'.

Recommended Posts

I have generated a QR Code for a new Cache Location using http://scansfer.com/ which contains Final Location and Description, and downloaded the file to my Laptop.

 

I want to include the QR Code in 'Geocache Description' just like this example :- http://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC2651N_royal-united-qr-cache

 

How do I do this? The 'options' ask for an http link!

 

The only way I've been able to show the QR code is by adding it into Gallery.

The Groundspeak servers need to be able to find the image. As you point out you can add it into your gallery on this site by using the image upload function on the cache page or linking it to another site where it can be downloaded or displayed.

 

Once you upload a file, copy the image location and use the <img src="xxxx.jpg> tag in the html on your cache page. For example, the cache page you cited above includes this tag, which can be found in the page source (a good way of learning html):

 

 

Groundspeak provides some help in explaining how to include a photo in a cache description.

 

I have found that some additional HTML tags are handy - you can set width, height, horizontal spacing (hspace), or vertical spacing (vspace) to help control how the image is displayed on the page. Google will turn up lots of html tutors if need to look deeper into what you can do with an image tag.
