HELP! On Cox-12152 I had information started for His second Family and lost it all ( I know it is on the changes pages but I don't know how to get it back! )  Then I wanted to put the link I found on Family search after the reference I put in one space and added 1900 Census A and it did not link and all I got was the long address on  2 I did. The first one I did with a reference to the book turned out.. I did the same thing....why oh why do I have so many problems with this?

Thank You for restoring My information...I work so hard on this. I know IT will GET easier!

Looks way better. the link to the last family is still running all over.

Thank You so much for Your prompt attention to this! Pam
just fixed that last link there was a space after the [  that caused the run over it needs to be snug no space and it will not run like that
Thank You very much. I do see what I was doing wrong. I should have put it as a reference in <ref> then I would have just added a new reference. I work for a tour group for special needs people so will be out now for a week.  I will take my computer so maybe can work on it more! Thanks Again! Pam hawn
You are very welcome. One of us cousins are always around to assist if needed... Jacky
Pam,

I copy and paste the citations from FamilySearch and their citations include a compressed URL. It's not as compressed as using a URL compression program but it is much better.
