I thought I must have had a blonde moment when I keyworded a recent upload and used the keyword Hosta several times.

but when I got to the end of Managing the keywords, I realised it was because I'd put e.g. Hosta 'Paradise Island', or Hosta 'Funny Mouse', which is

the standard way of naming cultivars, but the system had split them. Confirmed when I looked at my original keywording before uploading:

Note that not only is the phrase split, but the constituent words after division aren't placed next to each other, but well apart.

 

I'm sure this has been covered before, but don't remember seeing it, so maybe it can save someone else time.

(And not to worry, the search seems to turn up images even if you search in the standard way, e.g. Hosta 'Paradise Island'.

And actually, now that I think about it, I've noticed the problem before with an apostrophe, though the system seems to just 'omit' the apostrophe, unless I'm remembering wrongly.

Any idea why the system can't accept punctuation like this? It's muscle memory (as well as correct) to use them also in place names and businesses (though the system does accept ampersands!)

 

PS, it's not consistent. Having managed a file which had split Gardeners' World Live into Gardeners and World Live far away, I just found another with Gardeners' World Live set as one keyword phrase.
