Related web page in a geocache

Hello! Some geocaches listings have a Related web page link at the top where the owners can put a link that is relevant to the cache. As in https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC3CDE6_mata-nacional-da-herdade-da-parra


I can't see those links in locus. Is there an option I haven't selected or is this feature missing?

If it is missing, please try to implement it as it would be very useful.

If it is already there, please tell me how to enable it.

Thank you.

Good day Kwizatz,

I'm unfortunately not so skilled with Groundspeak API system to give you correct answer if this is possible or not. Anyway @Arcao, is there such option in API to receive also these "Related" links? If so, it may be placed at start of cache description. I'm anyway worried that no such feature in API exists.

Thanks for the reply and for looking into it. I'm sorry but I'm not able to help you regarding the API.


I never use c:geo, but I've just installed it to see if it can show those links. On the Details tab it doesn't, but in the Description tab, at the bottom of the listing, the related web pages web link appear and without making any reference to what they are.

See img provided.

I hope the feature can be implemented.

Thank you.

C.geo does not go through the official API interface.

It downloads data only through web pages.


Therefore, it is not possible to compare their functionality.

Yep, exactly.


We must wait till @arcao ( developer of Geocaching4Locus ) find some time and check possibilities of official Groundspeak system.

Good day Kwizatz,

Sorry for later answer. Unfortunately I have to disappoint you. API is not able to return related web page address at the moment.

I can ask Groundspeak if they plan to add this to API, but I don't give it much hope.
