Problem showing caches by date placed

Recommended Posts

I'm doing a live search of a location that has lots of caches. I've reset my search filters, entered a start and end date in 2008 (28 days apart), select done and it comes back as no caches found.

My example is GC1AFYG placed March 23, 2008.

I see the cache without filters (live search), but when I set start on March 2, 2008 and end of March 29, 2008, the result is no caches found.

I changed my search filter to a different year (keeping it at March 2-29),  2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 all gave results, but any year I tried from 2012 and earlier did not.

What an I doing wrong?

I can post screen shots as needed.

Looking at that cache, though it shows hidden on 3/28/2008, the logs show it was enabled on 7/23/2008.  Regardless, if I set the start/end date to with March 2008 or July 2008, it doesn't show up. Nic will need to respond unless someone else can figure this one out.

Thanks.

It seems that any search I do will only return results if the published date was after Feb 12/2013.

If I do a Cachly search with a Start date of Jan 17, 2013 and an End date of Feb 13, 2013, the only results I get are from caches published on Feb 13, 2013. If I make the end date Feb 12, 2012, I get no results from any location I search.

There seems to be a cut-off of Feb 13, 2013

Also, not sure how hidden date and published date comes into play here. It seams that PQ's use the Hidden date and Cachly uses the Published date. When working on the Jasmer challenge, I believe that uses the hidden date.

2 Examples below:

PQ: This cache came up in a PQ seach of March 1 to March 31 of 2016. It was placed March 31, 2016 and Published June 23/16: https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC6EJ78_if-trees-could-talk-3

Cachly: A Cachly search of Jan 17, 2013 to an end date of Feb 13, 2013 shows this cache that was placed Dec 30, 2012 and published on Feb 13, 2013:  https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC43HM7_trains-planes-and-automobiles-automobiles

it doesn't seem to mater where I do my search from, but here's my home coordinates, 48° 29.764'N  123° 27.848'W

I just did a live search from here and set the search dates from Jan 16, 2013 to Feb 14, 2013 and only one cache was returned. GC45WXG hidden Feb 12/13 and published Feb 14/13. 

It didn't show GC47FVF published on Feb 12, 2013 only 5 miles from my house (or any of these others, all within date range an all within about 7-miles: GC473T6, GC472R7, GC46Z96, GC46R84, GC46K7G, GC43AN7 ).

  • GC47FVF was published on March 12, 2013
  • GC473T6 was published on March 5, 2013
  • GC472R7 was published on March 9, 2013
  • GC46Z96 was published on March 3, 2013
  • GC46R84 was published on February 28, 2013
  • GC46K7G was published on March 3, 2013
  • GC43AN7 was published on February 25, 2013

All of these caches are outside of the specified date range, so they correctly do not show up in the search.

Let me know if I misunderstood something. :)

Basically no search of any dates before Feb 2013 shows any results.

Here are some examples:

Search dates June 2, 2008 to June 30, 2008 from N48 27.058  W123 22.461 shows no results.  A PQ shows GC1DJBM published June 29, 2008 located 3.9 km from my location.

Search dates July 1, 2010 to July 28, 2010 from N48 27.058  W123 22.461 shows no results.  A PQ shows GC28QMN published on July 22, 2010 located 8 KM from my location.

Search dates May 1, 2009 to May 29, 2009 from N48 27.058  W123 22.461 shows no results.  A PQ shows GC1RC3F published May 16, 2009 located 9.9 km from my location and GC1Q4D0 published May 1, 2009 located 6 km from my location.

Search dates March 1, 2011 to March 29, 2011 from N48 27.058  W123 22.461 shows no results.  A PQ shows GC2QDGQ published March 11, 2011 located 1.8 km from my location.

Ohio, Feb 1, 2001 to Feb 28, 2001

Setting the State to Ohio, and using those dates it shows me two caches. Have you cleared your search options to make sure nothing else is coming into play?

Thanks Nick. I have done several tests and it seems to be fixed. I'm now getting results.

Thanks for your efforts. It is very much appreciated.
