i can't add a plant because the link is rejected. and i don't know why.
it's Begonia 'Black Fang'
here are the links that i put in one by one or together or just .com names - none is accepted.
it would be useful to at least have an error message specifying why the links are no good.
this is Loongwood Bot garden roster of plants
https://plantexplorer.longwood...
this is Royal Hort society of England
https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/...
this is a reputable nursery selling them

I put a few proposals in the queue to add this plant and all of the links you provided worked for me. If the url you entered didn't include http(s):// it will be rejected. Would you mind trying again (a single link is adequate) and take a screenshot if it's rejected.

my links included full URL path, just like above
there is no err msg either, just the screen won't go to the next step:

i got it! i did not put plant name on the 2nd line.. da-aH!
sorry! :)
i'm sort of used to getting a msg highlighting the mandatory field that was missed (on other forms). so somehow it did not register...until i put a screen up for you to look at!
been a while since a added a plant !
:)
PS i just put one thru - it worked! do we have dup entries in queue now?
