So I'm tring to put links to plant in the database IN one of my posts...been trying for several days, differemt posts, copying and pasting different things on theat plants database entry since one nearly helpful advice was to "copy/paste the DB code on the plant's database entry".

nothing has worked.

What IS the DB code and where might I find it on the entry page?? Confused

If you just want to link to the database page, copy and past the url from the address bar on the browser. This is what it will look like in your post.

Hardy Hibiscus (Hibiscus moscheutos subsp. moscheutos)

If you want to use a photo then click on the photo in the database to enlarge it. You will see the BB Code in the photos information panel. Copy and past that into you post

Using the BB Code will look like this:

There was a discussion here that may help:
The thread "Adding photos from the data base to posts" in Site Talk forum

Or try this...go to a plant in the database...I went to Poinsettia;
then I selected Poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) which brings you to this page:

Click on a photo of Poinsettia and it takes you to this page:

Click on "More Photo Details" and it shows this page; the ATP BB code is just above the image:

Copy/paste the ATP BB Code into your post.

Hope that helps.
