I'm up to the Rs, and there's a good range of Irish marks on there now.

A note on searching, sometimes less is more.
I've put the names in as Christian name Surname format, but sometimes there's a middle letter or its a husband & wife team or they used a shortened version of their first name, so putting both first and second name in wont necessarily work. Searching on just the surname or pottery name can yield better results.
Also I haven't always included the stamp shape because they're not always square or round or rectangular.
The 'seal' tick box means the potter has stamped their mark on a round ball of clay on the pot

Most Excellent

Hubby has speeded it up a lot and resized the photos so it's much better now.

Naomi, can I just say that the search database needs to be your front page.

People don't read anything and you have three seconds before they click away. Just combine the two.

Search database is everything and you even have a search widget on the home page that is just distracting.

There is currently a glitch in the search function on the mobile. Searching, eg B and Impressed, pulls up the results but then switches to just Impressed.

I like the fact that one can cross-reference to slim down the options, I tried with Guy Sydengam's Gs cross-referenced with 'building' ( Corfe Castle ) and it popped right up!
if I'm being pedantic though, the Joan Sydenham inclusion is not correct.

Love pedantic! Please tell me if there are any errors - even punctuation - or it's not working properly.

I've taken Joan out of the main listing and added her to an extra bio. field on Guy's entry (which is not searchable - I found that adding loads of extra names, such as who potters trained with, was bringing up too many search results so there will now be a field for that info, and general reminiscences, which is outside the search parameters). And I've given her her own entry on the database although there's no photo in it yet so her details wont show up until there is.
