I was playing with the images and tags, clicked to see how it looked, and it was sent! I have double boxes and a few double IDs. Can I just delete the entire photo? Not what I planned to do.

I think you can go in and just delete the extra boxes.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

I tried that and the box and description disappeared. I corrected the description, re-wrote, and thought it was corrected. When I clicked to check, it had been double posted both ways.

@Bubbles Sandi, Boxes can't be edited, only deleted and replaced. What you need to do is delete one of the double boxes but leave the other. Then select View this image as everyone else sees it. to see how it looks. If you want to make more corrections then go back to EDIT, delete the offending box and add a new one.

Before labeling a photo, what I do is open the database entries for the plants I want to tag. Scroll the windows side by side w/ the multi-photo on one side. Copy the url of plant A, make a box and paste the url, hit enter.

If you'd like I can delete the double boxes for you.

Thanks, Evan. I'll try again.
When I hit the "view" button, it appeared as though I had submitted it. Can I just start over? It looks pretty messy as it is. I've not attempted one of these before, so having it show up as I was working on it, was a little startling. I'm still trying to draw the boxes!

I must have missed the last sentence. Yes, if you will delete the extra boxes, I'll work on the double plant IDs. I would appreciate it!

Thanks again. When I tried to correct the misspelled IDs, that's when I got double boxes and double IDs. I'm going to try one now.

Me again! Are all the boxes deleted? I don't see the boxes or the IDs. I think I have gremlins in my computer.

Edited to add: No gremlins, just nutty woman. I think I'm getting the hang of it, but I still need to practice more.
Thanks again for the help, Evan.

"Me again! Are all the boxes deleted? I don't see the boxes or the IDs. I think I have gremlins in my computer."
Sandi, My bad, I deleted all the boxes. *Blush*

I replaced the tags with the DB url for each plant. Now when you click on a tag the DB entry pops up...and the mult-photo shows up on the DB entries page!

Thanks again for possibly the fourth time? I'm wearing out my welcome. It worked out fine. I was able to draw the boxes again. I'll try another one when I finish stuffing plants into the hoop house!

Glad to help. You have loads of photos that would be perfect! Good luck with packing the hoop house.

I just viewed the "new" edition of the photo. You really worked your magic on it! I was so afraid of messing it up last night, I just quit trying to do anymore. Love the links to the data base. Now I get it.

Thanks #5
