I was just looking at that. The locale comes from Google which may have hiccuped. I've refreshed the locale and it's corrected to North Altona.

Might be a browser issue????
I use google chrome now..with no issues at all.
Alert mails before the 15th have the full URL but they do not now.

I view mine in Mozilla Thunderbird. I will view them online in Gmail through Chrome and see if it makes a difference.

My alerts have the cache link in blue.....which I just tap on.....and brings up cache page. I can't remember how it was before.
Reckon the actual URL has been replaced with the hyperlink???

Let me look at the issue and I'll let you know if there is a code issue or otherwise. Thanks.

I have checked and there was bug which has not been fixed. The function had no reference to which environment was being used so it prepended no protocol.

A issue I noticed with the line intersect in the toolbox: https://geocaching.com.au/toolbox/lineintersectbearing/

If you enter a bearing that is 0 or 360 degrees (in the first bearing box) it gives results that don't make any sense.

So I don't have to guess what you did can you please provide the two points and the bearing so I can look at what may be incorrect.

It seems like any point that has a non-zero minutes in the east coord causes the error, for example:

A simple case where the answer should be S33 00.000 E138 01.000

Point 1: S34 00.000 E138 01.000 with a bearing of 0 or 360
Point 2: S33 00.000 E139 00.000 with a bearing of 270

Instead it gives this as an answer: S34° 0.000' W20635611° 41.928'

Thanks. Please try again. I have made a tweak of the code but I really don't have enough data to check a variety of intersects.

Seems to work with several combinations of coords and bearings. Thanks.

I just used the Quick Publish option for the first time and after clicking Submit on the screen where you write your publish log I got the following error.

"Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function gca_zone_info() in /var/www/site/gca/include/gca_dragonzone.php:590 Stack trace: #0 /var/www/site/gca/docroot/my/publish/index.php(106): gca_dragonzone_update('log_add', 'B', '', 'GA12302', 'stainless-steel...', '17660688', '0', '2018-05-26') #1 {main} thrown in /var/www/site/gca/include/gca_dragonzone.php on line 590"

The caches published all the same, and it is a great feature.

Thanks to both of you, this bug has been squashed.

You have both been rewarded with a few Bug Buster points.

Have never taken much noticed of Karma points but tonight looked at the Karma Points under the points menu ( https://geocaching.com.au/my/dragonzone/points/karma/) and the message reads no caches. Thought it should show Karma points we have collected when our caches are logged.
