I really enjoy using the journal feature to summarize different nature observation events I participate in (bird walks, Christmas Bird Counts, and festivals mostly). The features are pretty bare-bones but are enough to get the job done. Some great additions would be:
- A better way to attach observations to a journal post: Currently only your most recently added observations are convenient to add to a post.
- When an observation is attached to a journal post, could there be a link from that observation to the journal post? This would enable more journal entry discovery. (This feature used to exist, but disappeared at some point.)
- An aid to display an observation’s photo in the body of a journal post, maybe with that photo linking to the observation. I think this is possible, but I don’t know how to do it via HTML.
Are there plans to add these or any other new functionality to the journal feature?
As always, many thanks to the iNaturalist staff for maintaining this amazing web site!
