Clickable Guide

Looks like it could use an update - maybe use photos from guide, especially since we have Crustaceans, etc now.

Also - "search" doesn't seem to find forum topics - would be useful.

completely agree
i think adding quite a few icons to the clickable guide would be most helpful -- e.g., those leading to damselflies, crustaceans, aphids, Megaloptera, mayflies, stoneflies, springtails, &c...
some existing icons are rarely used [say, the flea or the earwig] while others are redundant [the ant icon would take you to Formicidae, but the other three hymenopterans all take you to the order page]

in a perfect world, a user would be able to customize the clickable guide just like a toolbar.

forum's transparency to searches is a huge inconvenience; see Patrick's clever solution
