For some of my caches, you have to depend on the tide. How do you create the hyperlink to the site you want. Also, how do you make the writing bold and in different colours? This is just that makes a cache page more appealing and more user friendly. like emoticons Coonskin Hat Jester Snorkel Treasure Bear Beanie Lightbulb

When you are editing the cache description, after where it says "Details" and before the "Short Description" section there is a checkbox that says "The descriptions below are in HTML". If you check that, then you can include html features in your description.

That is not what I meant, what I was trying to ask is how do I generate html text. I figured it out by googling it. Thanks for the Help! Very Happy

I usually will create my cache pages in a HTML program such as Dreamweaver to design the look of the page and then cut and paste the html into the cache page.

For those interested, I've been using a program called KompoZer for the last year or so.
It lets me create the layout of the page(i.e text, images, etc...) then gives me the html code for it, which I copy-paste to my cache page.
Works well for me!

When I make my event cache pages, I use photobucket quite a bit for animated cartoon pics. Its very easy to pop those into place.

Hey, thanks for all these leads - I'm not very happy with the look of the standard cache page and have wondered how people get the neat effects on some of them. Now I have something to go on!

We use Nvu for our html cache pages and photobucket for any picture links. I had been using html to fancy up our cache pages but I mostly do it for puzzles and earthcaches now. I tend to send the cache to the GPS without ever opening the page. I just read it on the GPS and I figured most cachers probably do this too, so I try and keep them a little shorter so the info is quicker to go through. That said, I really love how great some cache pages are and appreciate the creativity that many CO's put into their pages.

Learning html for geocaching is just one more way I think the sport keeps our brains sharp and keeps us healthy and young Beanie
