Release Notes (Website: Date placed filter) - February 13, 2020

  • Specific date that a geocache was placed
  • Geocaches placed after a specific date
  • Geocaches placed before a specific date
  • Geocaches placed between a range of dates
  • Dates in the future

 
Updated filter panel for Premium members:

That's cool! 

 

Yeah, this could be a useful feature. It saves having to set up a PQ to do date searches.

 

It seems like the filter screen is getting a bit bloated. It might be time to look at using collapsing sections so the overall form's size is reduced and individual sections can be expanded as-needed. HQ should have data on the usage of each filter, so the form could be sorted to have the most-used filters at the top, with lesser-used filters lower down and collapsed.

I tried it several times, but the filter-"Reset" button clears/resets everything, but not the selected date-filter! The date-filter doesn't return to "Any date".

 

When selecting 1/Jan/2020 till 12/Feb/2020 and hitting the "Done" button and then returning to your filter, the first date jumped to 31/Dec/2019 ( so not the selected date ).

Seems to be fixed already

As I'm currently in the process of trying fulfill the jasmer challenge and find as many older geocaches as I can I completely agree with The A-team that this is a great feature.

I was also using several PQs to search for older geocaches which sometimes caused me not to notice that e.g. a 2003 and a 2004 cache are near to each other.

Vertically it no longer fits on the screen but it looks like a 3rd column to the left or right might be a solution that would still fit on the screen.

 

I don't really care but it seems that the translation still needs to happen for the new fields?

Almost good! It could have an option to choose day of the month over a period of years. For example: 14/02 from 2000 to 2020. This would help anyone who intends to complete the matrix found by hidden date.

I second this suggestion!

Exactly. The first thing to came to my mind too.

Also would help to find "birthday caches" .

any chance of altering the month to month to month endless clicking to change year?

If I want caches placed March 2010, it's ungodly tedious.  

but hey, thanks for something new

Month should be a dropdown and year a +/-.

 

The interface is kind of clunky. The elements don't seem sized consistently (Firefox Dev 74); the Year entry is a text box which auto-highlights the whole thing but you can still eek in a text edit to type a year and it works; the Month didn't autopopulate at one point for some reason; arrow key presses are intercepted for calendar date navigation (only an issue when attempting to move in the year entry box)...

 

But yes you should be able to change the month and year without clicking month to month.

Firefox 72.0.2

@thebruce0 Ah thanks, I have to turn off Tampermonkey and do it  in  a certain order, month, then date, then year, or the year +-  doesn't show up.  But you're right, it is there.
