Display hidden text or HTML comments on geocache pages.
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.
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)."
If you find any caches where the script fails, please provide the details and I'll endeavour to get it working.
Updated to work on the latest cache pages.
Created a GitHub repo to manage updates through GreasyFork.
Started a new life at Greasyfork.
Removed the USO updater, as it was dead.
The GeoKrety widget header change didn't make it live in V2.
Prevented the GeoKrety widget header being detected as hidden text.
Changed back to Chuck's namespace.
The GC site had been changed so the include paths no longer worked.
Incorporated my update for hidden divs, previously provided on the original script's discussion page.
Incremented the version number to 2 for clarity.
