On the front page, when searching for the "coalcliff" locality I get all the results centered around my home location.

Same for searching for "Stanwell Park", but not for "Helensburgh" which shows the ones around Helensburgh.

And the GCA logo at the top of this page is missing.

When I search for coalcliff and GCA only there are non in that locale. It then looks outside the locality for those which are "near" (being +/- 0.25 degrees). The closest one that it's decided to pick for me is as follows, but that is sorted from my HOME not the location.

Geocaches near "coalcliff"
Status Rating Hidden Found Logs Type Size Name Location State Country Distance Dir Elevation Diff Terr
26th December 2011 157 wks Wongawilli Wongawilli New South Wales Australia 651.70 km NE 44m

As far as I can tell it is working as expected, but not necessarily as you want.

What do you think should be returned?

This is the first time I've heard from Wongawilli :-)

When searching for "Clifton", the suburb next to Coalcliff I got the caches I was looking for, mostly because they are in Clifton but until now I didn't know that, I would have called that area Coalclif. What I expected were the caches sorted by the distances closest to the original locality, whatever pinpoint you use inside it: I expected it would have given the ones in Stanwell Park and the ones in Coalcliff, not the ones closest to me.


Totally different issue: Try searching for "Clifton", it will return a 'Geocaches in "clifton"' section with two in Clifton NSW, one in Clifton Grove NSW, one in Clifton Hill VIC and three in Clifton Beach TAS. All fair answers, but one point: I cannot put the state in the search input, that will return nothing else. So I cannot force to show the ones from Clifton alone, but not sure if that is something I want to worry about now.

It will also return a 'Geocaches near "clifton"', where I do expect the ones are Clifton NSW, Clifton Grove NSW, Clifton Hill VIC etc, but I get only the ones around Clifton NZ...

This is a non-issue, just a funny one.


To resume:

For "Geocaches near ...", sort on distance around coordinates from original locality.

For "Geocaches in ...", allow states in the locality to search for.


Thank you!
Edwin

From a different discussion, this is most likely related to a wrong time on the device checking the SSL certificate.

Editing my moveable cache page and for some reason its changed itself to being a trig with the size of other and I can't seem to change it.

I've logged out and back in, I also changed browsers but its stuck on Trig. Can it be fixed or should I just abandon that number and start anew? The GA code is ga12646

Thanks.

I've changed the type to Moveable and the size to Small. You can now edit it and fix those details if you like.
