mapRoute updates The latest application updates for map-route.co.uk https://map-route.co.uk/ Mon, 08 May 2017 19:00:00 +0000 Copyright (c) 2017 map-route.co.uk Photo slideshow and Geocaching radius slider (intermediate) Added Geocaching radius slider to Status bar. Moving cursor over the slider reveals the radius length on the status bar and purple circle on map indicating the area covered in future Geocache downloads. These values change as the slider is moved. Geocache photos re-worked. Previously you could only see photos for logs that were loaded. Now all photo data is loaded when a listing is displayed. Once loaded the Slideshow button will appear. Click this to see all photo (newest to oldest). Geocache slider is now replaced with Photo Duration slider, which allows you to set the speed of the slideshow. When the slideshow finishes the slider returns to the Geocache radius slider. A slideshow can be paused, continued etc as before. Note: API information doesn't contain the username of the photo owner. mapRoute cross references with Geocache log photo data wherever possible, but if the log has not been loaded the Geocacher name is not shown. Increased intensity of Geocache load area colours for Full and Lite calls. Fixed a few minor issues https://forums.map-route.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2#2017-10-03 2017-10-03 Basic Usage video now out (minor) 25/08/2017 Created mapRoute Basic Usage video. Changed find/create waypoint button names for clarity. Only privileged users get Import and Nearby tabs now. A few bug fixes. https://forums.map-route.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2#2017-08-25 2017-08-25 Overview video and parking coordinates (minor) Created mapRoute Overview video. More detailed videos to follow, so I would recommend subscribing to the mapRoute Channel. Display parking icon Image in Geocache listing attributes if parking waypoint(s) exist for that cache. Move the cursor over the icon to reveal the location(s). This was a user request to ease manual satnav data entry where gpx files can't be imported and without the need to locate the additional waypoint icon. https://forums.map-route.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2#2017-08-05 2017-08-05 Groundspeak compliance, reCAPTCHA, download fix (minor) Added donations link and page. Donations are needed to keep this web app going. Please consider a donation. Fix:When downloading a gpx route from the map screen illegal characters (including spaces) were not being removed from the file and route name. Updated reCAPTCHA on registration to V2. Replaced Geocaching Partner icons with newly issued ones. Basic Geocaching.com members can no longer click through to web listings from Lite caches as per change in terms by Groundspeak. Premium members are not affected. Moved DNF icons to privileged users. Updated database backup and FTP code. https://forums.map-route.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2#2017-07-28 2017-07-28 FTF emoticon and bug fixes (minor) Added FTF emoticon when writing logs. It also replaces (FTF), [FTF] or {*FTF*} in Geocaching logs. Fixed bug when updating text (Geocache user note and Support tickets) so that all special characters and newline are handled correctly. Tidied up the handling of user's own Geocache logs at top of logs (now shown with yellow background). This means DNF for all users (where switched on) and all logs for administrators. There were a couple of minor bugs related to this. Fixed bug where special characters and spaces aren't stripped from route name when downloaded directly from the map screen. https://forums.map-route.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2#2017-07-14 2017-07-14
