Author's Description

Overview

Display "hidden text" or "HTML Comments". Great for help on puzzle caches.


This script is a reworking of Chuck Denz's
GCHiddenText. Chuck hasn't updated his script since 2011 and subsequent changes to the site have stopped it working. Since it was a popular and useful script, I have revived it so we can continue using it. All credit for the original should go to Chuck and I will happy to return control to him if he chooses to continue working on it.

Chuck's original description:

"Shows a button to click if there is any "white" text on the page or if user has entered in comments in the HTML. Useful for puzzle caches for a quick check for hints or puzzles. I found my self constantly looking for hidden text on puzzle caches for more help and so I decided to create a script for a quick check rather than doing the search my self each time.

If you come across a Geocache that uses hidden text and my script doesn't pick it up please send me the GC # and I'll try to add it.

I made a small edit part on the top of the code for user settings. You can adjust to what color scheme you prefer (if you don't like my red/white and green/white settings)."

As with Chuck, if you find any caches where the script fails, please provide the details and I'll endeavour to get it working.
