The Selector

I've seen this used on many cache pages before and up until recently my undrestanding was that this was a service provided by Texas Geocaching for its members and really should not be used by outside groups. Apparently this has changed with the addition of the "Add your Group Logo" option at the bottom of the Selector.

Would whomever is in charge of such things be able to submit the small WGA icon to the site so that we may start using this helpful and personalized information on our cache pages here in WI?

I emailed 'Texas' and gave them the same html snippet (for the small logo) that is found under 'spread the word' on the WGA main menu.

I saw that they 'reference' the logos and not copy them so if we need to change it is still under our control.

I received a reply from the selector master that the work is done and I verified that the selector now has a Wisconsin (WGA) option.

I just checked this out and tested generating the WGA selection and the code comes up as:
div style='padding-top:5px;padding-bottom:5px;' align='center'><img src='http://www.wi-geocaching.com/banners/banner-small.gif' border='0' align='middle' alt='Wisconsin Geocaching Association' ></div><div align='center'><a href='http://www.wi-geocaching.com' target='_blank'>St Louis Area Geocaching Association</a></div><br></td></tr> <tr><td><div align='center'><small>Generated by <a href='http://www.9key.com/selector.asp'>The Selector</a></small></div> </td>


Which then shows the WGA logo and the text: St Louis Area Geocaching Association below it linking to wi-geocaching.com Image It lookes like they forgot to replace the text discription in the code that they copied.

Texas has been notified. I considered asking St Louis to change but I figured just changing the text would be easier. Image
