front page search is messed up

Recommended Posts

1. go to geocaching.com/play/search

2. click on search box where it says "City, state, coordinates, GC code..." then click "use my home location"

3. it brings up results, but notice the coordinates are a bit weird, they have ' instead of the minute symbol.

4. make any change to the filters and click search

5. now it brings up a page saying "0 results for..." and it shows the coordinates, but only the north, not the west.

 

the workaround is easy enough, just delete the weird coordinates in the search box before step 4.

Or simply do the search adding the changes in Filters first...

Finally decided to check on this issue.  Glad (?) to see I'm not the only one.

 

For now - rather than using a cut-n-paste of the properly formatted coordinates

I'm jus searching on my city (not all that big -- so a difference on the search 

center of about a mile).

 

note:  I tried slightly change my home coordinates to see if a new / updated set would 

not be corrupted - but nope - still happens.  Home computer - lap top - Chrome / Edge

doesn't matter.

So, are are the engineers actually working on this, or it is just going to be forgotten about??  Still having the same issues.

The engineers are aware of the issue and we hope for a fix soon. 

In the meantime, if you want to do a search based on your home location you can just press the green Search button, without adding coordinates.

It will return all caches in the world, sorted by distance from your home location (as you put into the settings). You can further refine the search by using the filters.

That's what I couldn't do before.  But it works now.  Thanks!

The engineers did some quick work this morning and got this search function working again (no work-around needed)!

 

Yup noted this today

Thanks for dealing 

Merry Christmas to all the team

Unfortunately this bug still exists if I set my preferences to German! 😯 Both coordinates get a final "&#39" and next search doesn't work because it only contains the N coordinate. Cannot be reproduced if I set preferences to English. Chrome 87.0.4280.141 or Edge with Chromium engine 87.0.664.75.
