When you choose Daffodils at the custom database feature, the main Daffodil page is not first.??

When you search generally, it is always the first entry.

But if you type daffodil, that's not the case. Green Grin!

Yes, Sue!

Dave, did you come in through the search box with the names to choose from? That is where it's not coming up.

If you search for daffodil, that's a natural language search that is not alphabetized or ordered in any way except as "best match". Just like google searches are not ordered by alphabetical or things like that.

Dave, when you search for Daffodils from the search box, can it please search for Narcissus( be a genus search)? That way the main Daffodil page will appear first in the result.

I tip my hat to you. Thanks, Dave!

Can we have the same genus search for Colchicum, crocus, hyacinth, muscari, Tulips?

Now when you do a search for narcissus the resulting screen does not give you the option to see the entire genus.

I will try to illustrate a little better.

When you click on Daylilies in the search box, then cvlick on "View the full list of plants", you get the main Daylily page at the top of the result.

That is what would be preferable to have come up, I imagine for all plants listed in the search box.

In any case, can that be done for Colchicum, crocus, hyacinth, muscari, Tulips and Daffodils?

My desire is to make those custom databases be the central focal point for each plant type. So a general text search for "daffodils" should go to the daffodils database. From there you can click on the very first link, which is to view all the plants in that genus.
