Can the plant tag QR code link to another website other than Plants Map?
Our tags and signs are created with an automated process that makes a QR code that links to your plant pages on Plantsmap.com only.
We do not print Plants Map tags or signs that go to other websites as there is a high likelihood that the hyperlinks will break at some point in the future resulting in a poor experience.
We have built a system where we are very careful that those links are static and the links never change so the codes continue to work through our various site updates.
How to add hyperlinks or reference links to your Plants Map pages:
Scanning a Plants Map tag opens a page on plantsmap.com and on that page, you can include one or more links to any other website where visitors can get even more information about that particular plant.
- One way is by using what we call “Reference Links” where you can add one or more links in the Plant Details section to sites you like with more information about that plant. This can be found under the Plant Details tab > Owner Information > Reference Links.
- The other way is to use the hyperlink tool in the “story” or description area on the top of the plant page. When you are writing about the particular plant, you can highlight some of the text and link it to another site.
We do not encourage you to rely on hyperlinks for your story
We encourage you to reference as many sites as you like but also include information in your plant story.
- Pages that only put in a hyperlink will not rank high enough as informative to be seen in our Plant Finder tool.
- There is a high likelihood that the hyperlinks will break resulting in a poor experience for your visitor scanning your tags.
We do not print tags or signs that go to other websites or other items of interest.
