WHAT ELSE IS NEW?

Besides new flower pages, the Wild Flower Finder website is being extended in other ways. This page shows what else is new. It is also a reminder to the Author of where he's up to, and what he is still working on, lest he forget~

30th April 2018

ELEMENTS IN PLANTS

Added another Flowers/Z/Z_ElementsInPlants/Z directory, that of 'ELEMENTS IN PLANTS'.

It is about the chemistry of both the usual and unusual chemical elements to be found in plants which are beneficial to the plant (as opposed to unwanted and harmful elements which might also be found in some plants - although I suppose I should also list those as well. OK, I will - although the difference between beneficial and harmful is often one of dose - many of the unusual elements are only beneficial and required in very low doses!!).

20th Feb 2018

A FEW STATISTICS OF THIS WEBSITE:

[As of today; it grows bigger as I water it]

Total Size: 1.22GB

Flowers: 1,086

Subject Index: 760kB

Number of files: 21,802
      of which:
      JPEGS: 14,071
      HTML: 4,497
      PNG: 2,603
      OTHERS: 634 (this includes BBC BASIC files and a few other types to do with the programs 'wot I wrote' to help me build this website)

23rd January 2018

I altered the colour of the viewed links of (only some) of those html files in the Miscellaneous_Info directory:


I searched, /only/ in the Miscellaneous_Info directory, for those HTML files which have the following line:
a:visited { color: #111155 }
and replaced that line with this one:
a:visited { color: #881111 }

Which means that any links clicked on in those pages will not now stay the same colour (!!) but change to brown instead :-) [So you can see which links you have visited before].

[DO NOT DO THIS TO OTHER HTML files with the same 'a:visited color: #111155' unless they too stay the same colour after clicking on them - check it first!!]
This only affects certain files in the Miscellaneous_Info directory - some use a different colour of ink for text - and I did not alter those, only the ones which used #111155 (which meant that they erroneously stayed the same colour after being clicked upon... !). Fixed now - they turn brown instead :-)


12th January 2018

HOW TO FIND (SOME) ERRORS IN THE WEBSITE:


BSBI map mistakenly crossed out when a distribution map of the plant does actually exist

  
To find flower pages where the BSBI map icon is (incorrectly) crossed out with a red cross (it happens when I manually enter an spid number, but forget to amend the BSBI map icon !):
Search html files for 'NOT_GB' and look at each flower-page it has found. Some will be correctly crossed out (by using the image, but others might be incorrectly crossed out: i.e. a BSBI map does actually exist (i.e. the 'spid' number is not '0.0'). [The image 'NOT_GB/jpg' is the crossed-out BSBI map; the image 'GB/jpg' is the un-crossed-out BSBI map]

I last did this on 10 Jan 2018, so no need to do it again for a long while (there were only about 10 wrong - mostly I do this when I am writing the flower-page, but I sometimes forget...).

To find ALL the flowers in a SEARCH, simply search for 'Wild Flower Finder' (this might be handy for seeing which flowers lack a thumbnail/jpg image). If no image appears on the Search result, look at the flower file - if it has a 'thumbnail/jpg' in it then time-stamp that file and also check that the '
  Genus species  ⇐ Global Aspect ⇒ Familyaceae  

Unlike this website, which is limited to those plants that grow in the UK, this Wiki bar shows the global aspect of the Species, Genera and the Family.

I had to add the additional code necessary for implementation to !WFF (WFF102)

20th Nov 2013

sex

heterostylous

Added 'Heterostylous' to the sex types (images, search terms and properties). Also the main two forms of heterostylous - 'pin' form and 'thrum' form of flowers. See the entry for Heterostyly on the Primrose flower page.

15th Nov+ 2013

Edited !WFF100 : Inside the 'SubFamily' file it now puts a few extra lines:                                                          
<P>
<!-- Text on THIS Genera goes here... -->
Ready for me to write blurb on the genera as well.

28th Oct - 10th Nov+ 2013

Edited !WFF87 - WFF91: you can now search for category?Deciduous, category?Coniferous, category?Evergreen?, category?Semievergreen?, category?Broadleaf, category?Trees, category?Climbers, etc and with a check-box search for them too. If you just want to search for flowers, then leave the check-box labelled 'Flowers / Unspecified' ticked, since there is no category of 'flowers' - it is the default.

Still to do : the icons for some of those categories...

26th Oct 2013

Edited !WFF85 and added a 'Category' (ferns, grasses, lichens, liverworts, mosses/clubworts, moths, butterflies, mushrooms/fungi) so that, if one of those is extant, then it puts a link to the corresponding menu onto the FlowerPage, eg:
 Mushrooms List 
I might need to add a similar List to !WFF for Berry-Months and for Pappus-Months?? Or maybe not??

20th Oct 2013

Added a 'Berries' months bar (similar to that of the 'flowering months' bar)

It is accompanied by a search keyword: 'berries?possible'. Although you can (manually) also search for berries by month (using 'berries?aug') it will not be very useful, especially since the Author has had to guess which months the berries will be present! - so there is no check-box to search berry by month like there is for flowering by month (which varies in any case!).

Berries: berriesZpossible
pappus8may pappus8Jun pappus8June pappus8Jul pappus8July
TO DO: another one for 'cones?possible', ?? etc... [copy either the berries or the pappus example] - but the search term 'category?Coniferous' should list most of those shrubs/trees bearing cones anyway...

18th Oct 2013

Added a 'Pappus' (Dandelion seed-clock) months bar (similar to that of the 'flowering months' bar)...

It is accompanied by a search keyword: 'pappus?possible'. Although you can (manually) also search for pappus by month (using 'pappus?aug') it will not be very useful, especially since the Author has had to guess which months the pappus will be present! - so there is no check-box search for pappus by month like there is for flowering by month (which varies in any case!).

Pappus: pappusZpossible
pappus8may pappus8Jun pappus8June pappus8Jul pappus8July

16th June 2013

Added a 'Top 26 Frequently Unknown Flowers' to the  Submit Unknown Photo page.

19th May 2013

   Sex.

Changed the names of 2 Menus from Dioecious.htm and Monoecious.htm to 'Sex.htm' and put all those menus on the same 'Sex.htm' menu file.

Un-sure how much use it will be, but now have lists of Dioecious and Monoecious plants. At least I can then easily check whether or not I have photographs of both the separate male and the female flowers for both of these categories.

NOTE: there are now TWO sets of Male and Female icons, the smaller ones are for putting on the photo images themselves, as here.   

The larger ones are in the 'Menu2/Miscellaneous/SexImages' directory and are property icons for the Flower Page Headings:

sex

dioecious
sex

monoecious
sex

bisexual
sex

male
sex

female

18th May 2013

 Rarity
rarity

uncommon
rarity

scarce
rarity

rare
rarity

extinct

Changed the 'Rare' category to 'Rarity' and added R, RR, RRR and E sub-headings. Have now made 'Rarity' one of the Properties as well as a searchable item in the searches.

I think I may need to add 3 other categories to Rarity: C, CC and CCC for fairly common, common, and ubiquitous, so that searches can be made for really common flowers to spare the casual flower observer of having to wade through many possibilities that they may never come across. (Although the definition of which flowers qualify as C, CC and CCC may well vary as the flowers wax and wane with passing decades). It is also not without problems: what is common in the South of the UK, may be rare in Scotland, and vice versa.

18th - 20th April 2013

The background, foreground, text and link colours used in the Flower pages, Family Info pages and Contributors page (only) have been re-vamped. Hopefully better now?

14th April 2013

Finished off all the  Hybrid Charts - those with 3 or more hybrids. A chart is hardly worth making for those genera with 2 or less hybrids.

This does not include difficult charts where the hybrids are mostly from parents that are not native to the UK (absent parents), or those where there are numerous triple hybrids or the hybrids are very complicated, such as in Mimulus, or where they will not fit into a 2D chart.

Thus Mimulus, Crocus, Lonicera, Mahonia, Festuca and Salvia are those genera that cannot be shoe-horned into a UK (where all the parents actually live in the UK) or into a 2D chart. But all the rest have been. Hybrid Charts finished!

7th April 2013

Produced a new menu:
 [W] Genus species [W]

This menu is for botanists, and lists the species of flowers on this WildFlowerFinder website by scientific name (they are also listed in the Subject Index).

It is surrounded each end by two external Wikipedia link icons, [W].
The first [W] is a Wikipedia link to the named Genus, whereas the second [W] is a Wikipedia link to the species itself.

5th April 2013

Written a new program: !WikiGenus, which automatically produces the
 [W] Genus species [W] menu detailed immediately above.                                       

25th Mar 2013

Stuck a StatCounter page-view counter on both Search pages, which is therefore now on 3 pages, including the SubInd page. This should count more pages, particularly those using the 'mobile' search version. I can then compare the readings of StatCounter against those of the single SiteMeter page counter on SubInd. BTW - sometime last week SiteCounter reached 100,000 total [but that counts only SubInd page loads] (can't remember what year it was started, must have been at least 5 yrs ago). SubInd page view seems to be doubling every year (it has done so for at least 3 yrs now). It might saturate the ISP again in summer...

15th Mar 2013

Decided to download a new list of Genera from the BSBI website to see if it has changed since I last did it, several (3?) years ago. It has! The BSBI have added some new genera (but deleted more, presumably obsolete, genera). So I ran my !BSBI_Genus program (wot I wrote) again to produce a new Menu list of the BSBI genera. All up to date now, at least for a while until taxonomists rock the boat again with their latest AGP version.

This may mean that some of the Genera I have listed under each Family (in Menu2.Family.FamilyInfo.Info/htm) no longer exist. That is now fixed too.

15th Mar 2013

Wrote a new BASIC program, !ChemCat to help catalogue the chemical PNG files within a Flower directory. It produces a HTML file called ~ChemCat within the directory in which it is run of all the PNG files it finds within that Flower directory. This HTML file is not used directly within the WFF website. The top half of the HTML ~ChemCat file should be copied into the SubjectIndex.htm HTML file, whilst the bottom half should be copied into the StructuralFormulae.htm HTML file. The entries it creates, such as 'AceticAcid' will need editing with spaces to read 'Acetic Acid' etc.

21st Feb 2013

Adding a Lichen Dyes page to the Flowers/Z directory [it's a good place to put it, not many flowers beginning with 'Z' (none so far) and the !Crossrefs program will work correctly on it] :-)

12th Feb 2013

Edited the Search Pages a bit: added HINTs to certain categories, such as for inner?colour, Toxicity and Physical Contact. Both a brief hover text and a longer click text has been included on the HINT icon.

11th Jan 2013

Somewhat pre-emptying the 9th Jan 2013 entry re links to Wikipedia for Families (specific to the UK) and their Genera, I have inserted 2 new menus under the MISCELLANEOUS heading:
 Family [Wikipedia] and
 Genus [Wikipedia]
which link directly to Wikipedia. This is in addition to what is decided for the 9th Jan 2013 entry. It might also make those links easier to implement?

This has also necessitated the editing of the program '!FamilyGen' such that two extra MenuFiles are created by that program, namely 'AA_Wiki_Fam.htm' and 'Genus_Wiki.htm', to be copied elsewhere in the Wild Flower Finder Website.

4th Jan 2013

Fixed a bug in the !CrossRefs program whereby it never found links from flowers with a single-barrelled name to those of a double-barrelled name (such as from 'Butterbur' to 'Giant Butterbur' (but it did find the links if they were reversed - i.e. 'Giant Butterbur' to 'Butterbur').

29th Oct 2012

Drew 3 three external link icons (for those links not going to Wikipedia), in three sizes, 20, 18 and 16 pixels square.    (to be found in /Images). The smallest 16 square should be the norm for text in pages, larger sizes are for use in headings and such.

29th Oct 2012

All chemical names with 'sulph' in them have reluctantly been changed to the yankee spelling 'sulf' in accordance with current  chemical nomenclature, leaving intact all common names, such as 'Sulphur Tuft', 'Sulphur Clover' and 'Sulphur Cinquefoil', as well as any use of the word 'sulphur' as a colour: the  IUPAC have no jurisdiction over common English usage!

16th Oct 2012

Added a new APPENDIX: entry, namely  IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species attempts to list all those species of Plants, Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians, Fish, Insects and Molluscs that are threatened with extinction throughout the World.

4th Oct 2012

Added a new APPENDIX: entry, namely  NVC / BNVC.

BNVC (British National Vegetation Classification) is a system for classifying natural habitats in the UK according to the specific types of vegetation that they contain.

  The Author also decided to add another icon, a Wikipedia icon (both large and small - to be found in 'Images') with which to link to any relevant Wikipedia page.

3rd Oct 2012

Added a new CATEGORY (other): entry, namely  Galls and Rusts.

For Galls, Smuts, Rusts and other abnormalities on plants caused by insects, mites or fungi.

The Author also decided to add another new entry to CATEGORY, namely  Mutations in Plants. This might now make the entry MUTATIONS (in the APPENDIX) more or less redundant, but I have left that in; both entries now point to one another instead making each easier to find. [In June 2013 I had to move both 'Mutations in Plants' and 'Galls & Rusts' from 'Category' to 'Miscellaneous' otherwise half the sub-headings went missing each time I ran !MenuSort!]

17th Sept 2012

contact

severe
contact

high
contact

medium
contact

lowish

Added a 'Dangerous by Physical Contact' to the properties of flowers section.

This also entails: (the links here are intended to help the Author)

  • Drawing four new icons for 'contact?severe', etc.
  • Adding a new line called 'PhysicalContact !' in the menu/htm file under MISCELLANEOUS heading of that file.
  • Creating a new Menu2/Miscellaneous/'PhysicalContact.htm' menu2-page for 'Dangerous by Physical Contact' and entering references to potential Flower Page entries into it.
  • Creating a new INFO page, such as 'Contact_Info.htm' for it in Menu2/Miscellaneous/Miscellaneous_Info directory.
  • Adding to the Menu2/Miscellaneous/AllTheInfos.htm.
  • Adding to Pages/'FlowerPageKey.htm'.
  • Entering TWO references to that newly created 'Contact_Info.htm' page into the 'SubjectIndex.htm' page.
  • Adding the new entries to the 'GOODbits/Properties.htm' file.
  • Add the new Info menu item to the Miscellaneous/HELP.htm file.
  • Create a new HINT file if necessary, see Pages/SEARCH_HINTS/Rarity.htm for an example.
  • Entering the new property-icons into the appropriate Flower Pages.
  • Adding a new 'What Else is New Entry' here!
  • Adding 'Contact?red' etc to the two Search Pages ensuring the correct 'target=index' or 'target=_blank' for each of the 2 search pages.
  • Adding extra code to !WFF program to implement contact?severe, etc for new flower pages.
In more or less that order.

1st July 2012

Instigated another way of searching the website. This makes it easy to do highly specific compound searches without having to manually type unwieldy search strings such as toxicity?high month?may flower?blue stem?angular.

There are a mixture of radio buttons, checkboxes and drop-down menus. Check (tick) those which apply to your search. Don't forget that all the selected boxes are logically ANDed; therefore the more boxes you check, the fewer the results. If in doubt - check 'unknown' or leave blank, otherwise you could end up with either the wrong results or no result. When you have finished, click the final 'SEARCH using CHECKBOXES' button.


The JavaScript/jQuery code which powers this search method was kindly written and honed to perfection for the Author, with a great many thanks, by Mr. Peter Shaw, the proprietor of  Digital Solutions of Consett, County Durham.

15th June 2012

Added a new 'species' to (so far) only the file FamilyInfo/Info_Orchidaceae. And that 'species' is 'Non-Native' - i.e. its not a species, and there's no point in adding a new species to the species lists if it isn't present in the UK, so - to cater for non-native orchids - I have created this false 'species'. The Calypso Orchid should really go in the 'Non-Native' category too, but I had already created a species for it ('Calypso'). [It is probably not worth adding a 'non-species' category to every Info_Familaceae file, since they probably will never be used, but if you wanted to add another, this is the example to follow].

Suddenly realised I needed a new Category 'Insects on Plants' in the menu.htm, etc for various insects that are already on it that aren't Moths or Butterflies. All I have to do now is find the insects that are already on the Flower pages...

19th May 2012

Added a new stem shape, 'Lens' which is lenticular in shape, because neither Oval nor Round shapes seemed appropriate for Summer Snowflake. Yellow Flag and Montbretia have now joined it. There may be other flowers I have over-looked?

Also added two new colours to the Search Function: Bicolour and Multicolour.

1st April 2012

A new program has been written to quick-sort (into alphabetical order) the new  GENERA → FamilyInfo list. It is run automatically by the !Genus_Fam program when that has finished creating this new list.

1st April 2012

A new icon has been added to the CONTENTS super-selector shown above, namely the small dark-purple   button. This enables easy access to the GENERA → (FamilyInfo) Contents Menu. Try it and see.

The  GENERA → (FamilyInfo) is a list of all the Genera that this website knows (which is more that that which the BSBI site lists because of the inclusion of fungi and other things in this website). This is a quick reference to which genus belongs in which family (under AGPII). When a genera is selected, the corresponding Family Info page is displayed. This menu is also accessible from the 'Genus → Family' in the first column under the MISCELLANEOUS heading.

31st March 2012

A new page: Mutations which shows examples of any plant mutations that the Author can find. Readers are also invited to submit their own photos of mutations and abnormalities.

20th March 2012

Firstly, this page 'What Else is New' is itself new, but informing the reader about this here could lead to infinite recursion...

Mid March 2012

A new icon has been added to the CONTENTS super-selector shown above, namely the small dark-blue   button. This enables easy access to the Hybrid Charts Contents Menu. Try it and see.

March 2012, and on-going...

Two extra pages have been added, accessible from the  Hybrid Charts chapter menu, and elsewhere:

'Triple Hybrids' and 'Inter-Genera Hybrids' are lists of triple hybrids and of inter-genera hybrids with hyperlinks to the BSBI distribution maps. The Author knows of no other such lists on the internet.

Early March 2012, and on-going...

Using the new program 'HybridCharts' to create dozens of 2D Hybrid Charts with a remaining list of those in the species which do not hybridize. The Hybrid charts are to be found in the Family-Info pages, which are accessible from numerous places.

Late February 2012

Your Author spent 2 weeks writing a new program, icon shown above, to convert a linear list of species and hybrids into a 2D Hybrid Chart.

Jan 2012, and on-going

The addition of summary pages of structural formulae accessible mainly from the Contents Menu called:
 Structural Formulae
    (by Chemical Name)
and then following the purple-boxed links such as this (in-active) one:
MonoTerpenes

2011 - 2005

Pre-history. No records exist of progress.                                                                                

TOTALLY UN-FINISHED PAGES

 Glossary

Medical Symptoms

Leaf Shapes
This may be almost impossible to do, which is why it has been abandoned for over 5 years...


IDEAS FOR PAGES

It is now obvious to the Author that the STATUS category 'Casual' as used by your Author, is an odd one out since he does not categorise plants into any of the other 5 groups in the cream-coloured boxes (Naturalised, Survivor, Denizen, Colonist or Cultivated) [see 'Wild Plant (Native/Alien chart' on the Status Info page]. All those plants listed as 'Casual' should be re-labelled 'Neophyte' on this website. But whether your Author has the time to do this or to make all the (extensive) alterations necessary, is another matter].

The many ways evolution can proceed.

In properties: Stem Characteristics - add a 'succulent stem' to the properties (Buttonweed, etc)

In 'Properties' perhaps add 'rayed florets', 'disc florets' and 'disc and rayed florets'. Need to draw icons for them.

In 'Properties' perhaps add a 'common' / 'abundant' category to compliment the rarity properties (R, RR, RRR). Need icons drawing. C, CC and CCC for fairly common, common, and ubiquitous, so that searches can be made for really common flowers to spare the casual flower observer of having to wade through hundreds of unlikely flowers that they may never come across. (Although the definition of which flowers qualify as C, CC and CCC may well vary as the flowers wax and wane with passing decades - and also what is common in the south may be absent in the north [and vice versa]).

In 'Properties' perhaps add a pendulous flower 'Pendent' category. In it should be Pendulous Sedge, Wisteria, Laburnums, Himalayan Honeysuckle, Flowering Currant, Snowberry, False Acacia and Hedge Fuchsia, Willows??, - which have pendulous flower-spikes PLUS singly-drooping flowers such as - Snowdrops and their like, Water Avens, Snakes-head Fritillary, Peruvian Lily, Martagon Lily and some other Lilies, Styrax Tree, Hellebores, Angels Trumpet & Japanese Lantern and some other Solanaceae's, Bleeding Heart, Bluebell, some Daffodils?, etc which have pendulous single flowers.

In 'Properties' add a CATEGORY icon(s) 'under-shrub' / 'shrub' / 'tree' / 'plant' / 'climbers' / crops, ferns, grasses, lichens, liverworts, mosses, moths, fungi/mushrooms. (NOW DONE)

In 'Properties' perhaps add a HEIGHT icon(s) low, sprawling, medium, tall, giant. Need icons drawing.

In 'Properties: Flower Type' add a 'single flower per plant' and single flower per (main) stalk' to Flower Type.

In 'Properties' add an aquatic ('inFreshwater') / 'inSeawater' / 'inBrackishWater') property [perhaps as part of a habitat property, but that gets complicated - so many habitats! - but 'in Water' is easy... Don't forget that there are already 'Freshwater' and etc Habitats - so tie them in with those.

In 'Properties' add a 'seed' property: Pappus (parachute) [DONE] / hooked seed [not done] AND THEN berry [done] / fruit [not done] / seed pod [not done] / etc.

In 'Properties' add approx size of flower: saucer / 2pound or 50p coin / 20p coin / 5p coin / etc (think of some other common discs that may be more permanent than UK coinage which is forever changing).

In 'Properties' add 'Climber' [done] icon and also icons for different climbing methods such as Adhesive Pads, Tendrils, Twining Leaves/Stalks etc.

Don't forget to amend the 'search checkbox' searches when you've finished adding properties. And alter the !WFF program so that the extra properties can be added to new flowers.


EDITTING TIPS FOR THE AUTHOR:

[OMISSIONS]:
Search for '()' in the directory 'Flowers'. If any '()' exist add the 'English Genus Name' (look in Stace for this) inside the empty round brackets. Don't forget to check that this 'English Genus Name' also occurs in the relevant 'Family' files just after the '[LATIN GENUS]' name.

Search for 'Dayth' or 'Flowers' in the 'Flowers' directory for things that should be edited out.

Search for 'example' or 'Delete' in the 'Flowers' directory for things that should be edited out.

Search for '' (in capitals) for flower-links that the program '!CrossRefs' might have missed linking to [especially if the two plants in question are, for example, a link from 'Butterbur' to 'Giant Butterbur' which it seems to miss for some reason].

Search e-mail file 'CrossRefs' for 'missing' to fix un-paired 's.

Search e-mail file 'CrossRefs' for <q> and fix any inconsistencies in the search term between the q's.

Search e-mail file 'CrossRefs' for 'URL:' to see all the new links found.

Search 'SubjectIndex.htm' for '()'. Then insert the appropriate number within the empty brackets according to the number of occurrences (in the 'SubjectIndex.htm') of that entry.

To check for un-paired <q>'s etc, scan the 'Flower' directory with !Validator, then search the results for '<Q>'. Clicking on the result will take us to the correct page.

Search '!WildFlowers' directory for *jpgp* . Mis-named jpeg extensions are ignored by Risc OS, but any other browser will fail to show the jpeg :-(

Search '!WildFlowers' directory for JPEG files which lack the '/jpg' extension.
You can do this in !Locate with the following settings:
Object Name: 'is not equal to' and give it the value '*/jpg'
Type: Files: Of Type 'JPEG'

To Search for JPEG files anywhere on the hard-disc which do not have '/jpg' as the very last 4 symbols
You can do this in !Locate with the following settings:
Object Name: 'is not equal to' and give it the value '*/jpg'
Type: Files: Of Type 'JPEG'
Don't forget to un-tick '[ ] Applications' and '[ ] Directories' or it'll list those as well!

To Search for partially unknown flowers anywhere on the hard-disc (for instance in the '_Flowers' directories) - (useful if I want to see all the ones I know half the name of, but not the exact name - e.g. 'Hawkweed()' )
You can do this in !Locate with the following settings:
Object Name: 'is equal to' and give it the value '()'
Type: Files: Of Type 'JPEG'
Don't forget to un-tick '[ ] Applications' and '[ ] Directories' or it'll list those as well!
This lists all the partially unknown flowers so you can attempt re-identification.

For helping with spell-checking - use the list of every word I have used - which is there to be found in the Free Find Search site:
to produce this list - do this:
Search for something (anything) using Free Find Search
In the Free Find Search results page, click on 'index' (to be found on the 2nd line down)
Up pops a list of all the words I have used in WFF
Scan (using eyes/brain) this list, looking for anomalies
Use the program !TextSeek to find those occurrences in WFF
This will take ages! I'm up to starting on 'E'...
Insert any mis-spellings likely to crop up again into the file 'MissSpellingsList/txt'.

To find jpeg photos which have other than 'jpg' at the end (such as might occur when naming flowers to speedily when using !Insert - when you might end up with such names as '/jpgCommon)_' rather than '/jpg':
Search using !Locate with 'object name' set to 'is not equal to' and the name to '*jpg', and the 'Files of Filetype' set to 'JPEG' (under the 'Type' button).

Search using !TextSeek for 's (apostrophe 's') (but this method could miss those with a '-' in them, best to go through all the flower directories by hand and guess which will have a apostrophe or hyphen in the real names or anything else which could cause problems when searching the website using 'Free Search'). Now add any extra search terms for the at the tops of those flower names containing an apostrophe-s. Such as 'Cotoneaster (Helmqvist's)'. Add more terms to the search list because anything enclosed by brackets such as 'Helmqvist's' is not recognised as a word, and is only recognised as '(Helmqvist's)' - that is - including the brackets. So extend the <title> words like so: <BR> <title>Cotoneaster (Hjelmqvist's) / Hjelmqvist's Cotoneaster / Hjelmqvists Cotoneaster / helmquist - Wild Flower Finder
Another example:
CottonGrass (Hare's-Tail) / Hare's-Tail CottonGrass / Hare's Tail CottonGrass / Cotton Grass / Hares Tail / Harestail Another example:
Dame's-Violet / Dame's-Violet / Dame's Violet / Dames Violet / Sweet Rocket - Wild Flower Finder
To cater for all the ways of spelling and mis-spelling the flower name in a user-search using Free Search.
[I am up to adding terms to flower names beginning with 'D']
