I'm getting an error when I attempt to add plants to a list.
Error: Find your plant first.

Finding the plant in the database doesn't help.

Hi stone,

It sounds like you might have found a bug in the system.

What exact steps can I take to reproduce this? In other words, could you tell me what to click on and what to type in that might help me see the error?

If you already have a list...
Probably need to use a test account

From profile... click lists... click 'start your own list'... click 'add a plant to your list'... paste plant name into the space provided, click add the plant... get the error.

Ahh, I see. You can't just paste the name and click the button. You have to start typing the name (or paste it and then wait) and then it'll give you a pulldown of matches. Then you select from the matches and then add the plant. Try that and let me know how it goes. Consider that it's a search engine, not a place to type whatever you like. It's matching your text with the actual plants in the database.

Thumbs up Thumbs up

I'll look into this and see if I can make it give a more useful and informative error message, so that the next person isn't confused by how this works.
