At the bottom of the main page there is this list; I would like to see 'Database' to be one of the buttons if possible.

I was going to say the same thing. I hardly ever scroll to the bottom of the page, but use the Database listing at the top.

It may be at the top of your page but not on mine; I think it depends on your personal settings. I wanted to just make it easier for newbies to find.

Hetty, I don't think it has anything to do with they way we customize our pages. For me it's in a very light gray font, and easy to miss. At the very top, next to the house icon, don't you see this:
Learning Library. Plants Database, Tools & Apps, Community

It's at the top of every page, same menu bar as t-mail, system messages, & your profile. It actually scrolls with you as you move down any page so it's always accessible.

Learning Library, Plants Database, Tools & Apps, Community and they all have drop down menus for further links.

It's at the top of every page and after the site changes awhile back, it took me awhile to remember where it was located. *Blush*

I spend a lot of time browsing the database and wanted "PLANT DATABASE" to always pop out at me ... my old eyes sometimes need BOLD print. Rolling on the floor laughing

The pale gray color makes it easy to overlook if you don't know it's there.

I do think it would be useful to add a lot of this stuff to the footer, as well. I'll add it to ye olde todo. Smiling

Heh, don't feel too bad, Hetty. Took me a while to notice it up there at the top, too, so you're not the only one. Smiling
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
