    Hi Laura! You need to have taxon pages in your Collection to make a field guide. You have a Collection of just images. If you use a Collection of taxon pages, then the tool does work. We will make that more clear on the Field Guide page. You can make a Bingo game using your Collection of images. Not quite a field guide, but another option. Thank you for trying these tools. Let us know if you have further questions.

    Hi Jeff, Hello, despite reading the tutorial on creating a field guide several times, I am not able to load my collection to my newly created field guide, "Birds I saw in Spain". The collection number is 47572. Is this app working? Laura Sebastianelli

    @Katja Schulz: Hi Jeff, I don't seem to be able to create a new guide. When I click on the Create New Guide button, nothing happens. I've tried this in Chrome and Firefox on Mac.

    @Jeff Holmes: Thanks Jeff, I'll create a new fieldguide then. In this particular case a lot of new text content has become available because we have engaged a new content partner specializing in this area (North American butterflies).

    Hi Katja, I'll check into the image issue. Sounds like a bug if it is not finding the new ones. There is, unfortunately, no way of re-downloading the text at this point. Part of the issue was trying to figure out how to handle new text versus text that had been customized by the guide author. We do hope to address this limitation in a future version though.

    @Katja Schulz: You shouldn't have to start over, so it might be a bug. We'll take a look and get back to you early next week when Jeff (our programmer for the field guides) is back. Thanks for your patience!

    I'm trying to update some of the field guides I made last year. There's lots of new content on EOL, both new text and new images. When I click on "Check for New Images" in the field guide editor, it tells me "No new images were found on EOL." But that's not true. For example in the case of the Acmon Blue, there are 27 images on EOL, but only 4 in my field guide. Also, I don't see a way to download new text content into an existing field guide? Do I have to start over from scratch?

    @rick McNeill: Hi Rick, Would you mind posting the link to the field guide? Explorer was having problems, but should be fixed. Will test out Mozilla. Thanks, Tracy EOL Learning + Education

    Aloha I can't seem to get the field guide tool to publish a pdf. I have tried both mozilla and explorer.

    @Bart C.: Bart, images that are linked are shown in the guide (as long as the original source remains live) and should be licensed under a CC license since they are viewed within the context of the field guide. Let me know if you need further help.

    Question about the EOL Field Guides and licences. In the FAQ following is stated: "Adding images to a topic box: Within a topic box you can also insert images from a web link". Is the image shown in those cases, or only the link. Do these linked images need to be under "Creative Commons Licenses"?
