Cache finds 'feed' possible?

Post by Happy Chappies » 21 January 14 4:46 pm

Afternoon all.....

Not sure whether this fits as a GC or GCA issue, so I'll raise it here. :D

Is there a way of getting your cache finds/DNFs/notes as a feed. Like a newsfeed or RSS/Atom feed or some such? The reason I ask is I was thinking it'd be nice to have my cache finds/dnfs appear on my blog - either as separate posts or a sidebar of an rss feed. I tend to write longish posts when i find logs and they usually record a fair bit about the context and what's happening - so as such they'd fit nicely on my blog (which I largely use as a bit of a diary as much as anything else)

Anyway of doing this through GC or GCA? I couldn't spot anything that might seem to do the job from my searches so far.

Cheers,

Eddie.

Something like that?
That feed will show all finds as they appear on GCA, therefore there is some delay between the GC find and the feed being updated for GC caches.

There's no facility at GC to do the same if I recall.

That's absolutely perfect! Feel a bit daft for not having spotted/realised that! Thanks very much... The delay is no real problem at all - It's just nice to be able to have them there...

Cheers,
