Dave,

In this thread http://garden.org/thread/view_post/243610/ I have tried twice to post a link to Google Images search results. In both cases, my link didn't hold the search terms. It reverted back to the Google Images home page with no search results. The search was as follows: "Panama Rose" OR "Bush Pentas". When you first click on my link, it appears to be performing the search for a second or two and then it bounces back to the Google Images home and yields no search results. What is going wrong? Is it on my end? Confused

Thanks!
Carol

No, that didn't work. I'm wondering if Google has disabled the ability to link directly to search results.

That one works. Maybe it's the "OR" phrase in there.

That works. It's the quotes around the phrases that are breaking Google.

Dave - don't waste any more of your time. I know you have lots to do. It is probably a Google thing. I can easily enough link it to one image rather than a whole search. Heck, even better, I should link it to the ATP database first. (Can ya tell I'm NEW?! Rolling my eyes. ) I'll link it to that!
