Search by attributes

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, 

 

Does anyone know how I can search by attributes?

 

Just tried to do it using the pocket queries but it turned up no results. I'm pretty sure there will be at least some caches within a 500 mile radius with some of those attributes. 

 

Where am I going wrong?

What area? What attribute?

I ran a PQ near your last found cache. I randomly chose the wheelchair attribute. 500 caches fit the criteria.

Most of the time when things go wrong with PQs it has to do with conflicting options. Try a PQ with just one option chosen en work from there.

Exactly. For example, searching for both "I haven't found" and "I have found" produces nothing, because there is no cache that meets both criteria. Likewise, searching for both "I don't own" and "I own" produces nothing, because there is no cache that meets both criteria. And so on.

Uncheck the checkboxes "Found" and "Not found". A single cache can't be in both statuses.

Attributes are additive in a PQ. Example: you're interested in Abandoned Structure and Tree Climbing, if you select  both, the query will ONLY return caches that have BOTH.

Likely you'll get nothing.

Please go to the edit page of the desired PQ and copy the URL. Paste the URL here, so we can check your settings. No fear - we can't edit your PQ, the given URL will just create a PQ to our own account.
