I may have asked this question in the past in a different forum, but when I click onto the bookmark list, why does it show 17 pages of the same thing? If I am looking to see if there are any lonely caches near my area, it is just a big waste of time paging through identical pages. I don't have high speed internet.

I had the same problem and just switched to hispeed and now all is fine. Well not quite, Sunshine has threatened to switch as back to dialup if I don't get off the computer. Now that I have hispeed I'm getting hooked on desk puzzles.

this is a well-known "bug" with the bookmark list functionality of the site. Groundspeak says "they fixed it" in just about every new website code release and then someone always says "it still doesn't work". I agree that the LCG book mark lists tend to cause the bug to show. It also seems to only show while using internet explorer and I do not believe it's related to the speed of your internet access at all because I have seen it on my corporate laptop on a highspeed internet connection as well.

At this point Groundspeak thinks they have it fixed but it still happens occasionally. There is a website forum here:
http://forums.groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?s=e0c7b37ea372393cd66b884506911daf&showforum=8

There is a pinned thread on how to report site issues that will fill you in on next steps if you want folks at Groundspeak to hear of your issues with long bookmark lists.

I have noticed the same problem and also thought it was due to my low-speed connection. I just log off and log on again, and the problem is solved...until it happens again. Smile

Whenever this tends to occur for me, I always set the list to 50/pg. this tends to delay the issue from happening for at least a page or two.
Frustrating, yes!!

That has never worked for me.
What I meant when I said that I don't have high speed, was that it is a waste of time for me to page through all of the pages of a bookmark list because it takes more time to do so, especially when it is the same page listed over and over again. I don't think my connection speed has anything to do with it. Although with my lack of computer knowledge, what do I know.

hopefully the map will surface again. but you can use the bookmark for a PQ and view it in GoogleEarth. This will give you a pretty good representation of where the Lonely caches are though I found that it may not be as user friendly as the other map, maybe GoogleEarthPlus is friendlier (anyone try this with Plus?)

FYI - I have never seen the bookmark list bug while using Firefox 3 or with Google Chrome.

It seems pretty browser specific. I've seen it on both IE 6 and 7.

Thanks everyone for your input. I'll have my wife take a look at it and try some things whenever she gets a chance. I don't look at bookmarks much because of this, but every once in a while it's nice to check things out.

Actually, it happens with Firefox 3 as well. Just not as often. The hot ticket is to use the bookmark list to create a pocket query, then display the list in GSAK, Easy GPS or anything other than geocaching.com.

Had to refresh myself on how I actually got this to work.
It wasn't a PQ but by going to a Lonely cache page and viewing all the bookmarks, then selecting the "download GoogleEarth .kml"

I looked at the new LCG bookmark list and the first three pages were good. Page four was a repeat of three and so on at least to page ten. I have a total of 22 pages on the list. I wonder how many pages are there supposed to be?

Obviously there are 9 pages of 50, since the bottom of the page says "430 caches". At this point, you have two choices:

1. Download the list using a pocket query and use software that actually works to review the list.

2. Make yourself a total nuisance to the folks at WWW.GEOCACHING.COM until you persuade them to fix this correctly.

Note that if you need help on how to create a pocket query, how to use GSAK or Easy GPS or Mapsource, how to map the list, etc. This is the place to ask. Problems with gc.com, well, you will be much more effective asking them.

Choice 3 would be to download and install a browser other than internet exploder.

At home I use Google Chrome. At work, Firefox.

I have only personally seen this issue in IE.

I have never seen this issue and I use IE.
