what does category/template "connected family tree" mean?

+3 votes

In a wikitree Data Doctor report, there is a field label "category/template" which says "Connected: PublicTree 400 views" or similar. What does that mean and why don't all profiles have this statement? I don't know if this URL will help or not ->.Data Doctor Report

Hi Bryan. Maybe this is a better link:


I can see where in the first row right hand column it says, as you report:

Connected: PublicTree all views 2364 / last year 105

I don't know what it means either, sorry! I hope somebody else can explain.

Possibly something to do with profile completeness?

And, yes, it is to do with "profile completeness".   See also:

I do not see the words category/template, but "Public Tree" means the main tree, the big ole tree, the Wikitree.

The five gold stars mean that it is a five-star profile, ie there are enough views to make it so.

The 2364 is the number of individual views it has had (the number of times people have looked at it), and the 'last year 105' means that in 2020, 105 people looked at the profile.

"Category / Template" is the heading of the rightmost column in the table.

I don't see five gold stars, but six small empty portrait-mode rectangular frames with gold borders (these were suppressed somehow when I copied the HTML into my previous comment). Looks as if the star character in some font is not being delivered to Firefox on iPad.
