map - hidden month

0 votes
83 views
I am not sure if it is me - however when I tried to use this tool specifically to find a cache hidden in the month of November 2004 - in the UK (dates between 2004-11-01 and 2004-11-30)

it came up with no caches within this criteria - odd! there must be ?

I expanded it so no country was selected - still no caches

I then selected 2004-11-01 and 2010-11-30 (yes a very large selection - but proved my concern that there may be a bug as still - no caches !!

please advise

The hidden month tool shows the caches only in the months you miss a find in. You already filled your calendar for November 2004 so there are no caches shown for you in the tool.

There are indeed caches hidden in November 2014:

If you wish to find more caches hidden in this month, you might try to add a "Loop" filter, which will allow you search for more caches in that month (paid member feature).

Good call about the loop - perfect
