Up til now when you use the text search in the database, you have to spell your stuff correctly and it didn't work if you misspelled a plant name. Starting now I'm pleased to say that it will help you out and give you a "Did you mean..." type message if your typo is close enough to an existing plant.

In the past one had to google for a name if you were uncertain about its spelling. No more!

Note that this is only for the main text search and NOT the "Search by characteristics" search.

I actually used this yesterday and it never even clicked with me that it was new. Rolling on the floor laughing I'm still not used to the "CAUTION!" symbol popping up everywhere and was sidetracked by it! *Blush*

Thanks for the enhanced search in the DB, Dave! I tip my hat to you.
