The option for "Search external name providers" is not appearing in any search tool

I am using iNaturalist on Google Chrome browser, and the option “Search external name providers” is not appearing. I tried using different search tools within the website, and the option appeared in none.

I’ve already used that function using the same browser and PC.
Sorry if this is not the right place to post this, and thanks in advance for anyone that helps with the issue.

That feature has been temporarily suspended, please see


Thank you very much! I tried looking for that info, including here in the forum search tool, and couldn’t find. Sorry for the trouble.
