What This Script Does

  • On all pages
    • Change all text input boxes to take up the full width of the window. They will automatically resize as the window size is changed.

  • On cache pages
    • Add an "email" link next to the owner profile link. When clicking this link, an appropriate subject line will be added to the message.
    • Optionally hide the disclaimer - it still applies, it just makes more room on the page.
    • Optionally move the map from the right-hand column to the coordinates box at the top. This utilizes screen space better on large displays.
    • Make a few minor adjustments to reduce excessive white space.

  • On travel bug pages
    • Add an "email" link next to the owner profile link. When clicking this link, an appropriate subject line will be added to the message.

  • On the front page and the login page
    • Remember the preferred state of the "Use Cookies" checkbox.

  • On the "submit/edit a cache" page
    • Remember the preferred state of the two disclaimer boxes at the bottom.

  • On the "email a user" page
    • Remember the preferred state of the 3 checkboxes below the message.
    • If you came to this page via the "email cache owner" link on the cache or travel bug page, an appropriate subject line will be added to the message.

  • On the list of caches hidden or found by a user
    • Add a link to the user's profile page.

Configuration
