What's New? > Linking people in notes

Ray Gurganus1-2-2019 08:06 PM
I made a couple updates which may help.  When editing both the general notes for a person, and the notes under "Add an Attachment", below the notes box there is now a place to add related people, if those people have their own page online here. Type the name of a person (as it appears in the notes text), and click the button to the right. Then you can find the corresponding person, and save.  (Enable popups for the site, if you have not already.)  When anyone views the notes, the names will be linked to that person's page.

You may need to edit the text to match the person's name.  For example, if the text mentions "John and Mary Smith", this will not work as it needs to have "John Smith" as one name.  You can update it to read "John Smith and Mary Smith", and then link them.

If there are multiple people with the same name, it is good to verify which one it is before you come here to select, as you might not know which person is which. Here are a couple examples I put in.

Attachment notes:  ourfamtree.org -- this shows on the person's main page, and also when clicking the "read more" link at the end of the text.
Main notes:  ourfamtree.org

If you find others that can be linked (and they are not your own people), let me know and I'd be glad to put them in.
