EDIT: This problem is resolved now for the listed profile. Not sure if merged profiles take some time to update properly in the system but after a merge is done there is a problem and I can confirm the problem still exists on newly merged profiles.
 

e.g.

Jacob Jan Hendrik van Niekerk is 6 Degrees from Shaun Wallace

Hi,

I found a bug in the connection to me application that shows your connection to another person.

A merged profile causes a weird bug where it lists the merged away person's mother as a wife of the kept merge profile and then the daughter as the wife of the merged away profiles. So the profile that doesn't exist per se is still part of the connection. And 5-degree connection is now a 6-degree connection which is no longer all green (blood) but has in-law links.

When linked mother to daughter it shows a non-blood line connection via the father.

This might be as a result of some of the connections each profile had prior to the merge occurring.

Example:

When linked to me:

https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:Connection&action=connect&person1Name=Fourie-563&person2Name=Wallace-16818&relation=0&ignoreIds=

When linked from mother to daughter:

https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:Connection&action=connect&person1Name=Fourie-563&person2Name=Van_Tonder-1006&relation=0&ignoreIds=

Kept profile: [[Fourie-563|Susara Maria Magdalena  Fourie (1845-abt.1921)]]

Merged away profile: [[Fourie-6503|Susara Maria Magdalena  (Fourie) Van Tonder (1845-1921)]]

Regards,

Shaun

Are they still displaying incorrectly, because they look ok to me? The connection finder may have not fully updated yet.

You are correct they fixed now. I wonder if it takes time on merged profiles to display properly.

EDIT - OK definitely still a problem on newly merged profiles.
The connection finder only updates once a day.
I'll check again once 24 hours have passed.
Ok, now it's fine. Seems like you are correct it is only fixed after 24 hours.
