Geocaching.com to Flickr greasemonkey script updated.

I updated my Geocaching.com greasemonkey script to work with the new cache names. This script automatically links to the flickr photos tagged with the geocache name ie GC1NMKA
When I first wrote the script back in 2005 I knew very little about greasemonkey scripts and unfortunately not a lot has changed. However I realized that the script broke as it was looking for the characters GC followed by 4 uppercase alphanumeric characters. New caches now have 5 characters so I needed to fix this.

A quick change to the script now looks for GC followed by any number of uppercase alphanumeric characters and can be found by going to geocache2flickr with a greasemonkey enabled browser and installing the script. This will be the official location but will also be available on the userscripts.org website.

  1. This is a very cool script! I wrote a post about it on my new site. It’s early days for the site but this is exactly the kind of hint or tool that will be included on the site.

    Thanks much for creating the tool.

  2. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everyone else
    experiencing problems with your site. It looks like some of
    the text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me
    know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before. Cheers
