DAR template not working - generated link is incorrect [closed]

+5 votes

The DAR link that is being generated from the DAR template is no longer being formatted correctly!!

 {{DAR-grs| A087502|Gideon Peck|11 June 2019}}

is being formatted to 

  • Daughters of the American Revolution, DAR Genealogical Research Databases, database online, (A087502 http://www.dar.org/ : accessed 11 June 2019), "Record of Gideon Peck", Ancestor # A087502.

Previously the ID was not seen in the link.  It was part of the link, but now the ID is seen as part of the link above, but the actual link is being created 'without the ID', so something was changed with the template recently. The generated link is the following.

it's the space... the visible, clickable link normally does not have the Patriot Ancestor's number showing. Delete the space (spaces?) between | and A.... and you should be good.

Yep, that fixed it.  Thank you!
Thanks Liz. I was doing something else in the profile and came across the link not working. Because of the recent discussions about the template, I thought something had changed.
