Registration issues - solved

A user made me aware of some issues that resulted in this error message during registration; "Field 'user_website' doesn't have a default value [1364]" I've given the database a good talking to and registrations are now active again. Apologies for this, not sure what happened - possibly an update we...

Re: Some Missing Boxes

There is a geocache on Hollow Tor - placed by famous letterboxer Red Roaming. https://coord.info/GC19Q6Z

It's a traditional so won't contain a stamp. Caches do often contain trinkets for kids, but don't need to.

Re: New to letterboxing

I believe the book is available to non 100 club members, the contact details are below. You certainly can geocache with just a map, I know several who started like that and one who does it. There is an addon (Geocaching map enhancements) for the caching map web page that overlays OS 25k maps and sho...

Re: New to letterboxing

Hi and welcome! Buying the book is certainly a good start, but more and more letterboxes are now "Word of mouth" which does make it harder to get into than it used to be. You certainly can just start looking anywhere under rocks, and in some areas (Hound Tor, Saddle and Haytor especially) this will ...

August - Website interruptions

I've having my house rewired this week and next, so there'll be some downtime I'm afraid. Should be up most evenings, however!

Re: FOUND: Visitor's book (remains)

TTM sounds like a boxers' name rather than the name of a box - someone should be able to confirm that.

Whereabouts did you find it?

Better anti-spam measures make this no longer needed, so I'm de-pinning this thread.

Re: Forum problems

Thanks for the idea, Colin - I suspect you're right. I've changed the header back to letterboxing.org - hopefully that resolves the issue. In case anyone's wondering why it's different... The site is hosted at Hennock on Dartmoor - on the end of a rural adsl line. I have a secondary connection which...

Re: Forum problems

Hi Mark, Afraid I can't replicate that - if I click on the 'latest topics' bit on the home page, 'read more' - if I was logged into the forum before, it keeps me logged in. Only thing I can think of is that your browser isn't keeping cookies for the site - so the site doesn't recognise you when you ...
