When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

Adding a photo to your new cache placement page

Post by NaDoohans » Tue Sep 15, 2009 10:02 am

I've been trying to add a photograph before the cache information in a new cache that I have placed. Thanks to Dino I've just learned how to use html but adding the image is messing the information text up and the photo is not showing. Can anyone help? TIA 8)

I've managed to get the photo to display after the cache information :roll: so I can't figure out why I can't get it to display before the info #-o #-o

What are you using to create the HTML for the cache listing? Xhina, Dreamweaver or writing it manually?

I was writing it manually.
I've decided to just leave the photo at the end of that one, I didn't have any difficulties with the other two today, maybe I was missing something very simple, but it's done and dusted now.

Thank you :D

I would reccommend Xhina and Firefox, simplifies everything and way better than doing it manually

I've just installed Firefox and Xinha for the very purpose of getting my cache pages looking a little better. Takes a little time to figure out how to use it but its time well spent. Recomend you set up a test cache page - remember to uncheck the box so the Reviewer cant see it and play about to you get the hang of it.
