Post My first Cache hidden
Hi all.
I have logged my first cache that I have hidden a few days ago but it is not showing up when I do a search.
The co ords are S 36 07.658 E 146 48.094
On the edge of Wodonga Vic 3690.

I must have missed some step?

Was it listed at geocaching.com or Geocaching Australia (geocachng.com.au)?
What is the code (should a GCnnnnn or GAnnnn) style code?
What is the name?
Give us some basic details and we'll see what we can find for you.

If it's this one http://geocaching.com.au/cache/GA8298 then you haven't yet published it.
GO to the page and on the right hand side click or tap Log this Cache.
Select PUBLISHED as the log type, add a date and some text and it should be published immediately.

As a courtesy you might want to also check the spelling in your cache description to correct some words and make it a little easier to read.

Thanks, yes that is it ga8298 S 36 7.658 E 146 48.094

I see it was still in draft.

I have fixed up the spelling mistakes and tried to log it, but perhaps you better check it again.

You are logging a FIND against it. You need to log a PUBLISHED against it. As an admin I'll delete your finds then you can log this with a PUBLISHED log.

When you get to the log page, next to Log Type: click on the down arrow and select PUBLISHED. There are different log types depending on the action you want and PUBLISHED is what you need to use to publish your cache.

Ta.

Just FYI I do a lot of volunteer Landcare work and we are using the Cache as an incentive to entice people to particular spots of interest that we want people to be aware of and take an interest in, and hopefully look after. This spot has an endangered native plant so in the cache I have put information about the plant.
We figured caches are a good way to engage families etc.
