I noticed today that when both a Multi-Plant image and a Random Idea image pop up together (and I am interested in both) that I can only go to one or the other. When I clicked on the Multi-plant image, I lost the chance to see what the random idea was all about as it had disappeared when I went back (hitting the house key, of course, takes me to a new set of images, entirely so I tried to use the "back" button). Similarly, if I click on the random idea image first - I lose the opportunity to see the multi-plant image. I played around with various combinations and found that I do not have the problem when it is a random plant image. As long as I select it first (before I go to either the random idea or multi-plant pics), I can just click the red "X" and it returns me to where I was (this makes sense to me). Because the random multi-plant and random idea photos do not have a red "x" option, I lose the page when I am done looking at my selection (ie., I cannot then go and look at the idea or multi-plant photo that was displayed at the same time). I sure hope someone can make sense out of what I am trying to describe (please, if you can, could you re-write this so it is clearer Hilarious! ). Is there a way to work around this issue? As I often see photos of ideas and multi-plants that catch my interest, I really don't want to lose the ability to go and explore them without losing the ability to go back and explore the other image. As I frequently have no clue as to what I am seeing in the photo, I cannot even go to the ideas section or multi-plant section to try to locate the random photo that was displayed, either. Thank You!

If there are more than one thing I want to see on a page, I always use the tabs feature of my browser. I'll open both links into new tabs (hold Control and click, or middle click) and then it opens them both.

Thank you for the work-around. I will definitely do that. I really like the random features - they are forever causing me to go off on a tangent and I learn a lot in the process. 'Just one of many unique features that makes ATP the best Smiling Thank you, Dave Thumbs up

Wow, this is a bit frightening for me...I actually understood the entire post made by OldGardener (even though I think of myself as not a computer person) and then I understood Dave's 'work-around'...just tried it. Works like a charm. Thumbs up

Thank You! OldGardener for posting the question and
Thank You! Dave for the easy solution.

Oh, Greene, that is scary! I re-read my initial post this morning and I am not sure I follow what I was saying. It was one of the most convoluted things that I have written in quite a while Hilarious!

I tried Dave's work-about, too. It is really an elegant solution for those of us with restless minds Smiling

Also, thank you for your generosity! It is most appreciated Thank You!
