It seems like it would just be a couple of lines of PHP, but then you'd have a little extra work when upgrading the forum software. How often do you do that?


Uh, never. phpbb 2.x isn't supported that I'm aware of.

I know 3.x is out but we had some issues trying to upgrade our database that I haven't worked out. Then there is also a fair amount of testing that needs to happen to make sure that phpbb 3.x integrates properly with the main-site software.

I'll look at getting the icons added, hopefully this weekend, unless GP wants to dig in..

I was talking to my friend, and he's going to do some looking into this for me. We've concluded it is possible, but what it'll take with PHPBB to scrape the data we want from gc.com or coords.info is unknown.

I wouldn't bother scraping any data, just a macro expansion. Something like:

[cache regular GC1CMXN]It's Almost Over 2![/cache]

becomes

I explored a couple of different options (as suggested here), but ended up taking the path of least resistance (plus it makes any upgrades to v3.x a lot easier as we don't need to reapply patches).

Regular Cache Icon
Code:
:regular:

Multi Cache Icon
Code:
:multi:

Mystery Cache Icon
Code:
:mystery:

Letterbox Cache Icon

Event Cache Icon

Very nice! i was talking with my friend, and we were talking about a script to add bb code so [cache]GCXXXXX[/cache] gives you:

Code:

[url=http://coord.info/GCXXXXX]Cache name[/url]


I'll update in a new thread once I know more.

Adding a mod for this wouldn't be hard to do at all, I'm just not interesting in modding this version. If/when we get to version 3 then I'll look at a mod a little closer.
