When I was uploading a photo of the entire plant, Heliotrope arborescens "Mini Marine," (Heliotrope (Heliotropium arborescens 'Mini Marine')) I was given the option of adding a comment. But when I returned to the entry to add another photo, my comment had already appeared, but without the photo. At least, I *think* that's what happened! Confused When I uploaded a second photo of just the leaves, I wasn't given the option of adding a comment, so now I'm really confused! Help?
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

The photo is waiting for approval. Once you have entered a comment it won't show up again for that plant entry, in the photo uploading area. Smiling

Comments on a plant don't require approval, Woofie, so they'll always appear before a photo. If you want to comment on the specific plant in your photo, you can use the caption line instead of adding a general comment.

Um, you mean the comment won't be attached to the photo? Heh, that should be confusing enough, since the comment was intended to refer to the specific photo I was uploading.

If you enlarge the photo and scroll down, you'll find an option to edit your caption. You can expand on your existing caption and then delete your comment.

Thanks! I spotted that and, if I did it right, the comment is now a thread related to the right photo. Smiling
