Showing ID #

0 votes
When in the window "Someone" Genealogy, all those "Someone" appear below.

When the Manager is YOU, the ID# apprears after the Someone's name.

If the Manager's name is not YOU, even if your name apears instead of YOU, then there is no ID#.

I find this window a beautiful tool when searching for merges, especially when the same family names are somehow spelled differently, sometimes because of the french characters that will differentiate the otherwise normal search function at the top left of the main page. However the lack of ID# makes it more difficult to find the LOWEST ID# that should be used.

Could'nt that ID# alway appear after a name?

Hi Gaston. Do you mean surname index pages? Give me an example URL if you're not sure. Maybe we could have the WikiTree ID always appear for Wiki Genealogists.

Hi to you Chris.

I dont know how you call that page but here is more with a line to follow:

From the Profile page of Pierre Miville: If I click on Miville which is in green, it takes me to another page titled MIVILLE Genealogy. Down below are all the Miville surnames which I can sort and merge right from that page.

This is where I would like to see all the ID# to be able to go to the lowest ID# without having to open them all one by one to see their ID# and make a list in order to aim them all on the lowest ID#.

In the present case of Pierre Miville, there are now 8 similar profiles to be merged into 1. The other problem is to have all the managers to do their part... 

The URL is:

Hi Gaston. Yes, that's the surname index. I think we could show the IDs there. We can also look into making the index sortable by ID.
Beautiful Chris. That will make merging so much easier! Thanks so much!

"We can also look into making the index sortable by ID." Ooh! Yes please!

When you open any profile you will find in the 'address bar' at the top of your browser window:

To compare profiles I open two profiles in adjacent tabs, and toggle back and forth.  I keep a Word file open alongside my browser to use as a cut and paste scratch pad.

I do practice that too but my point aims to something else as you will see on the previous details message sent to Chris.

Thanks Tom.
