    Standardization

    i believe Save to List creates a list from multiple caches while Add carries the meaning of putting a single cache on a list.

    Try turning off Smart Quotes in iOS settings. https://www.jordanmerrick.com/posts/ios-11-smart-punctuation

    Learning Issues

    I think your problem is that you copied the search text from someplace like MS Word that uses Smart Quotes. Look carefully at your screenshot and you can see the apostrophe and quote both slant to the left. Compare that with these characters in the cache titles. A smart quote will not match a plain quote. Try using plain quotes and apostrophes when searching.

    Text templates for logs

    So it should work as you described and I can write that up?

    Both my iPhone and iPad act the same but differently from you. Here are screen caps. Maybe you can spot how we differ.

    Text templates for logs

    Well I thought I was clear but experimentation suggests I'm not. Use case: Log Type set to Found It. Log Type Text Templates enabled. A single template with text "wwwww" checked and associated with no log type. When I try to log a cache, I get Found as the Log type and no text at all in the log message. I think I expected to get wwwww since "Setting the checkmark/default inserts the text into a log message regardless of the log type" seemed to be my situation. Is something wrong or am I still confused? I will defer writing more words until I'm sure I don't document a possible bug.

    I think so. I need to write some more clarifying this.

    Text templates for logs

    This was on my "I'm confused" list. I was unclear on the interaction of the Log Defaults:Log Type default setting and the Text Templates when a log type is checked as the default. What happens when they conflict. Experimentation shows what seem oddities. Log Type: Didn't Find It Text Templates default set to Found It. Do a log and I see Text Templates Found It plus text message from there. Turn off Enable Log Type Templates and I see the very same behavior. (This seems wrong unless I misunderstand the setting) Delete the check mark from the Text Templates list and then the Didn't Find It setting finally appears. I assumed Log Type default existed before Text Templates and is there for folks who aren't ready to dive into Text Templates. Still, with two places to set the default, confusion can exist.

    Take a look and review. The long explanation on Settings page is now part of the Text Templates page and Settings just links to it. I added a quick link to it on the home page. too.

    Sure, I can write something.

    Getting Started with Cachly

    I have written the whole of this section this evening. Look over it and provide feedback (or edit typos, bad grammar, etc.). I tried to cover the experience as it would be seen leading a newbie through the process. http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/Getting_Started_with_Cachly Editorial note: I didn't realize how painful geocaching.com's limit of 3 caches a day could be until I randomly picked one, loaded the full details and discovered it had 5 DNF's in a row. One cache load wasted on one I'm not likely to find. Sigh!

    I've also seen it done with an image of the text.

    I've seen folks use "support at cach.ly" and not making it a mailto could help.

    You can try that. I found that they worked better adjacent but see for yourself. General layout for mobile is still to be studied I think.

    Getting Started with Cachly

    Here and there, you changed first screen to left screen. If the user has narrowed their screen or is on a mobile device, the side-by-side screens will likely end up one above the other. That's why I used "first" screen". I agree "left" is clearer as long as they happen to be side-by-side but that is not assured.

    Nearly Done?

    I modified the invitation to edit at the beginning of the Wiki indicating moderation will occur. I'm running low on new material that is needed. Maybe some How To's will come to as they do when using Cachly and I need to do something a bit different or when someone asks me how to do something. What next?

    Cachly 4.2 released

    The changes look fine. I believe the extra legacy cache icons were already there.

    Wiki reorganized

    The Wiki reorganization is done. Feel free to dive in and add more material or fix what needs fixing. This link will show all existing pages in the wiki. Some are likely orphans and no longer needed. http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/Special:AllPages

    User profile- Finds

    I've noticed this. I'm guessing they are returned in random order by the API call with a certain number in each call. Pulling all of Alamogul's logs would likely cause things to crash otherwise.

    Corrected Cords

    What was that person using when they saw this? Cachly 4.2 beta shows them at corrected coordinates. The geocaching.com app seems to work the way the FB person says.
