Web Site Issues

6 posts in this topic

I understand that Waymarking is Groundspeak's unwanted child and we can expect little to nothing in terms of maintenance, much less upgrades, but I'll ask anyway.

* "Search from here" is broken but could be easily fixed (there are a couple of threads on this showing the simple code fix).

* The map is hopelessly small.

* The "visits" calendar shows the date you posted the visit to the waymark, NOT the date of the actual visit.

* Lists of waymarkes visited are sorted by date created, date approved, or alphabetical but there is no option for listing by date visited (the obvious first choice).

I'm sure that there are plenty of others but those are the ones that bug me. Any hope that GS would give a volunteer or two limited access to the web page code to do a little work?

While I would support your other requests, I do not want the calendar process to change.  It has taken many of us years to work with the current calendar process, filling the calendar dates.

Is it still broken? Lately it's been working for me in Firefox on multiple computers (all Windows 7) and Android phones so I assumed it had been fixed?

The 'search from here buttom' has been fixed and works fine. --> see this forum thread:

I do not understand the problem. If I go to 'My Visits' I do not have apossibility to change the order. And all waymarks are ordered by the date of my visit

Yes you are right. But there is a simple work around (if you are using Firefoy or Chrome): There are some Greasemonkey scripts that make the map as big as you want and add some new features to the map. --> see this forum thread:

If you want to see a list of more bugs and feature requests you can take a look into my blog where I have made some lists years ago

OOOOHHHH There are two ways to see a list of your visits. "Waymarks I've Visited" has the issue I describe above. But lower on the page is "My Visits" which does present them in visit order (newest first). How about that?

I just checked your Bug Tracking list and unfortunately I have to say that the "E/W-Bug" is still there (at least for me). From time to time I notice that a newly created waymark (with East coordinates) is saved with West coordinates. Sometimes this also happens after editing/saving a previously saved waymark. Usually I use IE, so maybe the bug has been fixed for other browsers.
