Dave, I noticed a few people have blanks within their lists of plant entries on their profile. I just deleted an entry from someone who has 2 plants submitted but when I went back to check the profile it came from, it still showed the 2 plants and when they are clicked on, they are blank except for the submission date.
Shouldn't those also disappear if the entry is deleted?

Yes, they should. Looks like I have a bug.

I went looking for an example to replicate this, but so far everyone I've looked at has the full plant list with no blanks. If you can tell me an example of a user who had this happen to, that'd be really helpful. Smiling

Zuzu mentioned that when she denies a new entry proposal because it's misspelled and/or already in the system, that incorrect entry remains in the database so she has to go find it to delete the plant.

We haven't had any new entry proposals yet that I am aware of. I just introduced the code not 15 minutes ago.

Starting here out, no new plants can be entered without going through the moderators. That'll entirely stop the duplicates.

And as for the missing spaces that this thread was originally about, I have completely corrected that problem, and it shouldn't come up again.

Thumbs up I like the idea of things having to be approved by a moderator before publishing ... less chance of a database with lots of errors and duplicate entries!

I had started to respond to this post, but then I noticed in another thread that the problem had been fixed. Thanks, Dave.
