Public List of Trackables on Geocaching.com

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is a repeat, my search-engine fu might not be strong tonight.

 

I have 50 TBs. They are all related to a tribute project I'm putting together.

 

I'm curious if there's a way to create a single page that lists all of them??

 

I created a list but it seems to only be for caches. I read this part of the manual and it seems to only be for placing the TBs on my website, which is also helpful: https://www.geocaching.com/help/index.php?pg=kb.chapter&id=41&pgid=166

 

I'm wondering if I can do it on Geocaching.com itself. Given the number I'm not sure I want to embed them into a TB detail page.

There's no function to keep a bookmark list of trackables on geocaching.com.

 

One potential solution, you could edit the "About" tab on your public profile page (using the settings page) to include links to all the TBs you want to track.  Or, as you note, put together an external web page.

 

I'm sure there are third party websites that have tools to help with this, but I've not used them, so someone else may be able to post a better solution.

You can create Watchlists for trackables also.

@hzoi: Would you be willing to help me see this through the eyes of a user other than me?

 

https://www.geocaching.com/p/default.aspx?tab=trackables#profilepanel - I can see my TB group on my profile, not sure if there's a way to make my profile public or not as I cannot view it when unauthenticated. (I don't usually do much with the website and still getting oriented.)

 

https://www.geocaching.com/track/search.aspx?tx=dd9c578d-bee3-4ca2-8397-8ddd9bd2f87c&o=1&uid=72b2976f-3b08-45b9-92f4-e739ea4e9ee7 - It looks like this filtered search will work. When I view it as an unauthenticated user I can see the list and there are three pages of results. Is that what others see?

 

@RuideAlmeida: Nice! Do you know, does the TB need to be dropped to watch it? I saw the watch list instructions but might be missing the actual link to say, "I want to watch this." I have five activated and zero dropped.

When you said you had 50 TBs, I thought they might not all be yours, since you have only 5 activated as of right now.  If they are all yours, once you activate the other 45, they'll all be visible in your owned trackables for all to see.

 

If you want to make them visible on the default "About" tab on your profile (which is currently empty), use the settings page link to edit that section (scroll down to the box below "About"), and use the instructions in the help center to make the little TB info boxes.

 

As far as watching, you automatically watch all the TBs you own, so you don't need to do anything else.  If you want to watch someone else's TB, you'd need to click the "Watch This Trackable Item" link on each TB page to put it on your watchlist.

Awesome!

 

Just to make sure.

When an authenticated user goes to my profile, they will see the TB group - just like I can? (Each one has a story associated with it and I would like those interested to be able to see the full story without having to dig.)

I tried the following from this help center page (https://www.geocaching.com/help/index.php?pg=kb.chapter&id=41&pgid=166):

<img src="http://img.geocaching.com/stats/tb.aspx?guid=9e7eae30-86ee-40c5-a1e9-035a5483bab4”>

I placed the above in my About section, which should be this TB: https://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=8160905. However, when I view my profile, I get an image not found icon. Looking at the code, it appears the code is being altered on save (specifically the %E2%80%9D%3E at the end). This is confirmed by removing that part in the image attribute and hitting enter - the trackable badge appears. Defect?? If so, what's the best way to notify someone??

Another approach might be to create an HTML list of all the trackables in the group, and to copy-paste that list into the description of each trackable. If you can create a single list somehow, then that's great. But if not, then you still have another option.

Interesting. When someone wrote that article in the Help Center, they used the wrong kind of quotation mark at the end of the URL. I'll post this in the Website sub-forum.

Currently when I click on your owned trackables I see that you own 12.  When I click on the TB icon, I see this.Capture.thumb.JPG.0b66f8515fa8a6263f1e6621335fbc31.JPG

 

So: yup.
