Personal Cache Notes

Recommended Posts

Assuming you're referring to Personal Cache Notes, I'm not aware of any way to isolate those - not even using a pocket query.

Play>Search>Filters>Has personal cache note

 

Edited to add:  this will also return all of your own caches, whether they have PCNs or not.

 

Edited again: Nope, not all of them.   Five of my own caches without PCNS were included.

Yes, It appears I've just been chosen to test the new search page, and it nolonger has the option to select caches with a personal note. 

 

 

You can opt out of the new search ( for now) and back on the old search you can also add a filter to exclude caches you own.

From SEARCH  www.geocaching.com/play/search/ not maps, you can ask for HAS PERSONAL GEOCACHE NOTE   I've also selected caches  I don't own below.

The new SEARCH which is being selectively rolled out is a MAP, and it doesn't have that option:

@MaryBartfast  -  Re Search/Map - > opt out...  from What's this? in the upper right corner, to Help Center article, product testing ->  bullet point in article for opt out 

You can get back to new map any time you want to - that option now exists from the Search page.   So once opted out, you're not permanently out.

Ik was eerst (ong één á twee jaar geleden) niet blij met de nieuwe zoekmethode. Later ontdekte ik dat je in deze versie een lijst kon maken met een teken met personal note/veranderde coordinaten erbij. 

Nu is het weer veranderd, en is deze mogelijkheid weer weg.

Jammer. Weet iemand het url adres van de vorige zoekmethode?

Van de eerste heb ik die nog wel, die ik ook weer vaker ben gaan gebruiken, want met de huidige waarbij je gelijk naar de kaart gaat ben ik nog niet blij.

Did you try clicking on the existing text within your cache note?  If you don't click on the existing text it doesn't seem to activate the editing.  This seems to have changed more than a few months ago.  I also thought it was broken but you just have to make sure you click on the text already there.

Yes. Tried that and also highlighting text. Whatever I tried the next keystroke took me half way down the page. This is a new problem for me. Yet the phone does not have it.

@Shoob&Sheeb - What operating system and browser are you using?  Do you have a touch screen monitor?  (I can't help you with your problem, but one of the developers may, and they'll likely need these questions answered.)

Win 7 using firefox. Do not use touchscreen. Have been using this system for a good number of years. Have used the note section alot as it is a great feature. Used a notebook when I started in 06 (paper).

Yes, it seems to be about 2500 characters.

Clicking on the personal note opens it for editing, but it does not put the input focus (i.e., the cursor) in the edit box. The next character you type goes to the browser, and because it goes way down the page, I'm guessing your browser thinks you're doing a search and is taking you to the first occurrence of what you typed. Yes, this is a big pain.

 

Anyway, if my guess is right, you need to select the personal note to open it, then click on it a second time to put the cursor in the box so you can type to it.

 

It's no surprise this has confused you: the behavior changed in an update a few months ago. Opening the personal note used to open the personal note and at the same time put the cursor in the box with all the text previously entered into the PN selected. This had its own problems because it was easy to open the personal note and then immediately wipe out the existing text by typing something. I assume they changed the behavior because people complain about that, but the new way has the problem you've discovered. A few people complained about this when the change appeared, but nothing was done about it.
