    Post Cache on Wheels

    I've only just found this thread. Some of you may well have already seen my post on ♿ Disabled Cachers and already commented.
    I live in Dorset with my husband aka Bull Family and our two children who love geocaching: 12 year old Horsey Mad Girl & 9 year old Geo Oly. :socool:

    Horsey Mad Girl put her first cache out near her baby - Quizzie called Quizzie's Round 01, and is hoping to out out more - she is very bright at Maths and has many Puzzle cache ideas, she is checking some of them with her Maths teacher and keeping them very secretive from us so far :socool:

    Geo Oly put his first cache out which is a Church Micro at East Stoke, near Wareham. It was all his idea and he worked out the puzzle questions to find the cache with only a little help from Daddy. He also has plans for some more caches, which Daddy will help him put out soon. :socool:

    I love how Geocaching bring families and people together - it should be part of the school curriculum as it has so many benefits across the sport / hobby

    Personally, I love caching and how it allows me to set achievable goals, even if I don't find the caches :lol: it get me out with family and friends and that is the most important part for me

    As some of you have read in my thread I want to promote more disabled access info for cachers, via the only tool I know available at the moment: handicaching.com it is great that so many people have got on board with this idea with over 100 comments on the thread.
    It would be great to see this integrated with GC.com and be a normal part of logging the caches with a drop down list of choices as there is on handicaching.com http://www.handicaching.com/

    Although there is info about Grease Monkey / Tampermonkey re handicaching rating posted on the show notes of the UK Geocaching Podcast Show, but I am yet to work this out, you can look at this at the following link:

    That's all folks TTFN :cheers:

    Greasemonkey is a client-side scripting tool which runs in the Firefox browser.

    All that means in plain English is that people can write Greasemonkey scripts for popular websites, which plug in extra functions to those websites - with that taking place on your local computer rather than on the web server.

    It's a bit like injecting extra tools into an existing web page.

    You'll need to be running Firefox - http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/

    Then install and enable the Greasemonkey plugin - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir.../greasemonkey/

    Then, on the NWCaching forum you'll find a thread which explains how to add the final piece - the Greasemonkey script which adds the handicache rating functionality directly into the web pages on the Geocaching.com website.

    The thread is here - http://www.nwcaching.co.uk/forum/vie...t=5575&p=75445

    Scroll down and find the Click to install link and once that process is complete you'll probably need to restart Firefox for everything to glue together properly.

    Read through that same thread on the NWCaching forum for a brief introduction on how to use the new functionality

    Thanks Microdot. I already had greasemonkey installed because I use GC Tour so installing the handicaching link was a breeze.

    Although a lot of greasemonkey scripts run in other browsers too such as Chrome and Opera.

    I haven't tried the HC one in Opera but might give it a go later to check...

    Oops - my bad - sorry about that (Microdot shuffles off muttering something about doing his homework properly) :lol:
