Previous News

  • Added 602, 632 and 662 - Separators in Location suggestions.
  • Added links to WikiTree+ Maps on Category pages and in WT+ Category Navigator. See: and on Template pages in the Info box and in WikiTree+ search results (Link is in the heading. Look for WikiTree+ Map link). There are also links to WikiTree+ Maps on each profile, that is shown by WikiTree+. See
  • The location table was redesigned, to make it easyer for me to maintain.
  • I added a new magic word: MissingLocation to find profiles without the location. You can also use BirthLocation=MissingLocation or DeathLocation=MissingLocation to find missing locations just in one of the fields.
  • I added Privacy to the search index. You can one of the folowing privacy values to limit the results: Private, PrivatePB (Private with Public Biography), PrivatePT (Private with Public Family Tree), PrivatePBPT (Private with Public Biography and Family Tree), Public And Open
  • I have split the table into 5 smaller ones similar to the WT+ online grouping. You can now jump to each table directly from TOC. Also each table has the totals for that table.
  • Added new suggestion regarding inline references. It is 872 Named Inline citation error. This performs additional checks similar to 871 and 872 but for named references. and just for the additional close tag (/ref). There are some other instances of typos listed here.
  • A new version of WikiTree+ Chrome Extension is published. Latest version is 0.3.6.
  • Spatial modul of WikiTree+ got a new addition. Maps. There are 2 usages of the spatial modul. Tree view is already present for a long time. See more on Help:WikiTree_Plus#Tree_navigator_on_WikiTree.2B and Map view. See more on Help:WikiTree_Plus#Map_navigator_on_WikiTree.2B
  • I added Difficulty rating to suggestions (Easy, Intermediate and Advanced). That identifies the required expirience to resolve a suggestion.
  • Added new suggestion 421 Hidden marriage on public or open profiles. A marriage can be hidden from displaying on the profiles. This is used for additional privacy. But using it on open and public profiels is not its intent. It is causing problems with suggestions, where you don't see the marriage on the profile and have no idea of what is wrong until you enter the edit mode, where you can see the marriage.
  • I added additional checking of template parameters. That was in suggestion 848. I created 4 new ones 894-897 that will cover all parameter problems. In suggestion 897 Error in template parameters I added checking of parameters that link to WikiTree pages. It is done for Categories, Projects, Space pages and Project Needs categories.
  • Added new magic word construct Creator_ + WikiTreeID, SourceJunkUnmergedMatchPendingMerge and templatetext=Andersson to WikiTree+ search engine.

    I added domain names of the explicit URLs in the Index. You can now search for any domain,

    You should search for openarch_nl or hdl_handle_net
    Endings of the URL are also added to the search engine so is found if you search for hdl_handle_net or handle_net or just net 
    Searching for nl will find all profiles that link to a dutch domain.
    Field name is Domain so you can also use it like domain=nl
    Have fun.
    Here is the summary of most linked domains.,4325407,2170677,1775999,1293748,1090893,732193,382414,305666,296177,108888,106143,94920,93921,88622,88346,81620,69444,65603,63837,62531,59135,57707,57140,50599,50458,48174,47725,47427,44855,43659,43611,43029,42759,39513,38590,37854,37387,35827,35473,32920,32762,32696,31576,31198,31183,31145,30509,28861,27818,27235,25777,23823,22799,22604,22434,21859,21836,21655,21582,21437,20485,20396,20393,20346,19805,19327,18410,18210,17847,17790,17325,17078,16962,16565,16518,16436,15855,15626,15523,15195,14802,14361,14358,14331,14088,14081,13690,13393,13330,12272
