Wildcard search

The wildcard search has multiple fields available which can be referenced. The wildcard search uses extended query syntax.

The fields available are:

Either search by complete words or add an asterix (*) in the start and/or end as a wildcard. To search a specific field @ can be used. For example "@county Uppsala" could be used to avoid getting hits from the region with the same name.

Advanced search

Advanced search is currently in beta. It is a paid membership feature. Advanced search lets the user search multiple fields at once and even lets the user search for words in the cache description or logs of caches.

The fields that can be searched with the advanced search are:

  • GC Code
  • Cache name
  • Cache owner
  • Location (Country/Region/County)
  • Cache description
  • Has log text

The fields can be searched with an extended search, exact search, that the field contains, start with or ends with the information put in the field.

There are also options to exclude/include or only search for cahes that are:

  • Disabled
  • Archived
  • Locked
