I have a site banner in the lineup for November. I didn't have time to question after I originally posted it. In the Title I wrote Lamb's with an apostrophe but really wanted it Lambs plural without an apostrophe. Can I change that? If so, how?

When I go into the banner area, it shows my submissions and which ones have been used. The ones that are approved and not used yet, have an edit button on them. You can still change things before they get used.

Okay, so got it fixed and had time to add details. But another question . . .

I'm not seeing a type of link under my profile to quickly access "My Banners Manager". Is there such a link that I'm missing? And if there is no such link, could there be one?

I'm pretty sure @Calif_Sue (who handles the banners for us) has the option to edit the banner details before they go up.

Okay, so @Dave, It's not difficult, but the only way I've found to see what site banners I still have in the waiting position (approved) category is
1. Go to the Site Banners Forum
2. Click on the "upload banner" which is at the right of the page.

Yes, two easy steps, but for some strange reason when I've been gone 6 months from here, I always forget how the heck to get there.

To me it would be so much easier if I could click on my profile, and see a link that would say "Approved, But Not Yet Used Banners". Of course this is going to take me to the list of "All" the banners I've submitted and have been approved, but I think I would more easily remember to click on my Profile . . . maybe not for others and I submit very few banners (time) and so all the others probably have it down pat and visit. Sorry to be selfish with my thoughts. Would an added link from the Profile click be real difficult?

Sincerely,

Teresa

Because in my thinking, I think, 'why would I go to "Upload Banners"', when I'm only wanting to see what banners I have and which ones are still out there approved awaiting their turn.

Now if the link said, instead of "Upload Banners"; something like "Upload New Banners and view all your other (approved) Banners"; then I'd know immediately I was in the right place.

Thanks!

I can see why that might be confusing. I myself often forget how to get there and have to just go to the Site Banners forum and access it from the sidebar there.

@Calif_Sue , okay, I'm being a nag now, but what about a link under Profile, under the green header "Your Actions" , a link that says "Manage Your Banners" , or @dave.

To get there fast, I just type in this location.

http://garden.org/barn/banners

They are in the barn.... not too hard to remember.

I added it to your profile page, directly under your list of banners.
