Pl. have a preview of new unfinished efloraofindia site at
To give you an example of when you click on ‘Adoxaceae’ category under A, you see Sambucus and Viburnum as subcategories (which on clicking will show further subcategories and posts) and you also see Sambucus and Viburnum as posts (which on clicking will show comparative images and other textual data).
Congratulations for this achievement
Looks exciting !
In fact, one advantage we have got is that all images have been downloaded and stored in our WordPress site and properly linked. In case in future, Google wants to shut down their Google groups including their archives, current images in our new site will not he affected.
Happy to see new and independent eFI.
My best wishes.
Thanks, … Unlike Google sites, only two user accounts are allowed to edit this site. So anyone can send me the details and I will have to do the needful.
It is pleasant and excellent to view the tree of efi with fascinating new leaves and flower buds. best wishes for the new form
Great job, can see a lot of hard work to give this impressive and convenient look to our website. Congrats to all members.
Now I think the new site has come with minimum damages to the data, but formating has to be reworked by me over many years.
clustering and arrangement looked excellent in previous site
compare with new
policies for such groups.
Garg ji, you have also put in your monetary resources for the site migration as well. We also wish to give a small contribution for this selfless project.
Earlier we had categorisation (subpage listing) and comparative images and details in a single page. Now there are two different pages- one for category as given by you. And another for comparative images and details as below:
Anyhow, that our data is safe- that is most important to us. At least our work will not be affected in the long term, though it will have issues in the short term.
How to search for pages with comparative images?
Thank you, …
All in all, it is heartening to find all the content safely delivered to the new site
You have been a constant support and initial discussions with you and others led to finalisation of our requirements quickly. You continued to support with ideas like CMS2CMS migration. In fact, insisting on it.
I think we should be thankful to CMS2CMS team, in particular Mr. Paul Hulka, for continuously providing support despite some issue or the other and finally delivering the superb migration after almost more than two months of their efforts. And that too much beyond the call of duty.
Now members can see family page links in the body of the new site as in our existing site.
Any further suggestions are welcome.
That will be great, …
I think there is no use in delaying the takeover of the site from them, as I have to make all the changes in the new site that I have done in the Google site in the past 45 days or so. And that itself may take about a month along with learning how to do all this in the WordPress environment. During this period my normal activity on the google groups will be disrupted and there will be a long backlog (of updation of group discussions on the new site) when I am able to assume my normal group work. I hope we are able to come back to normalcy within the next four to five months.
and in New site- /*Species- Seed plants (families) / A—L (families) / A / Acanthaceae / Asystasia /
Thanks, … I think you looked at page https://efloraofindia.com/category/species/a-l-d0/a/acanthaceae/asystasia/
Here you see categories on the top with black icons in front of them and posts (earlier we used to call pages in Classic Google sites) with white paper icons.
While browsing in the new site, you will find both Asystasia ‘categories’ and ‘posts’ at https://efloraofindia.com/category/species/a-l-d0/a/acanthaceae/
Categories you see on the top. and posts are available down below with the list going up to three pages. You can find the desired page in the 3rd page. Link I am giving below:
In such large families, you get the desired result better by searching at Asystasia. You will find the desired post in it at 14th number.
Yes … Got it now. Navigation is a bit different.
It is not possible now but it was much easier to browse the earlier site. When you search any genus all images of species appear in one go but now we have to click each Id one by one to view images.
eFlora of India new site- Old vs New navigation
Our new https://efloraofindia.com/ site is ready now
