Is there an easy way to add the products that were used on a LO that you upload to the gallery? I tried this last month and I could only do one product at a time, which was very cumbersome. Thanks for your help.

I think this is my first post.

Congrats on your first post! It can be cumbersome adding the product links. One thing that I just recently figured out is that when I click on say~ MME as the brand, the collections are then listed seperately. I usually know which collection the product is from, so that has definitely sped up the process for me a tad. Hope that helped!

No other way really, and I find the search feature for products to be very poor. On other sites, I can add a manufacturer and part of the name and a product will come up. Not so here on 2Peas. It is VERY hard to find products sometimes, and I just give up. It can be very frustrating for sure.

I was going to say "ATG" but I see that's not quite what you meant.

I actually find the search pretty good, you just have to know what you are looking for. There is no room for typos, and you need to know how products are listed in the store. It gets easier after a while. For example, some mists by October Afternoon are listed as "Sprinklers" and some just say "Sprinkler".

I usually know the company name and collection for the products I use, so I find it easiest to go to brands> and then find the brand and narrow down by collection. If the collection isn't listed, narrowing by sticker/paper/embellishment helps.

There are certain products I use all the time that I know the name of.
Searching for "enamel dot" will bring up all of the MME enamel dots and I can just pick the right colour set.
Searching for "gold lame" brings up Heidi Swapp's Color Shine.
I know I use certain mists most often, and I know them by name -- Robot Blue, Boarding Pass, Honor Society, etc.

It does get easier the more you do it!

I agree with biochemipea, you just need to know the brand and collection/item names. So I've rarely had problems with linking up products.

I personally like to start with selecting the manufacturer brand and limiting the search to physical products, since I don't work with anything digital. Then I do a search inside my current settings for whichever line or item I'm linking up.

Also remember that once you've done a search or used the menu to find and select items, you can look along the top of the window (just under the site menu) and see which search terms or selections you've made and click on the 'X' to delete them to search anew. This way you don't have to close the window and start over.
