You are absolutely right. Don't worry about any non-conformity if it occurs in output, i will make it correct if required.


For ease of readability you can do all needful in word file and then copy paste in thread of post.
If you need I can mail word file to all at address specified by you.

Updated template is there. Just copy and paste in new thread.
Only replace the sample ABC text with your text and submit.
Let me know if any change is required in fields or in order.

Farooq Sb here is the link to photobucket. You can also see my threads for nomenclature. Simply click on the image and click save image. Then you can use that image for entries. Or use IMG code from photo bucket.

By looking that your pictures I realized my deepest level of ignorance about mausami flowers. I don't know the names of most of them despite the fact that flowers are extremely beautiful :-(. I was just a flowering trees and vine collector (as you can guess from my entries). I have picked couple of them which I could recognize or knew about. May be other more knowledgeable members can pick some specimens too from your link.

Can we do something related to sorting of all these entries. Or there should be an index page where name and links of all the plants are present in chronological order both latin name and common name.

I dont think so presently. Sorting/grouping not possible in present scenario.
For this we need to add/develop some custom scripts in php.
Whats yours suggestions and recommendations :).
Thanks for looking into the matter timely.
