Dave would it be possible to be able to sort the photo entries in the Sempervivum database into seasons?
It would make it much easier to understand the different color stages that some of them go through. It would be very helpful in identification. Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Ann-Christy')

Well, we can't directly do it.

But what we can do is use the db_photo feature to write a comment and show the progression through the seasons. You can embed a photo down into the comments and make your own organization however you like. But the gallery itself is limited and has no means of showing or grouping into seasons or other kinds of things, except for the main gallery stuff (bloom, entire plant, etc).

What if we added an entry to the list for the different seasons? Would it then be possible to order them by season?
I obviously don't understand the workings of coding. So all I can do is ask questions. *Blush*

That's not doable Lynn.

As for the codings, it's easy. Just open the photo you want to share and then you'll see the "ATP BB Code". Copy and paste that and it'll then show up. So you can then write a comment saying, "Here is the plant in Summer: " and you include the bb code for that image from summer. Then do the same thing for fall, winter, spring, etc.

This is what it looks like to do the BB code:

Well, you posted them as different comments. I was thinking it should all be in one comment.

But yes, that's the general gist of what I had in mind.

Oops, should I go back and delete the others and redo the one?
I think your idea is better. I will make the changes tonight. Thumbs up
