Dropdown menu improvement

Dear Ales,

It occurred to  me that your excellent error trapping program could be used for a wholly different purpose,  namely keeping up to date the sheet which a number of people have.
On my account it is called
Michael Stills has
peter Roberts has
Then there are
Smith-62120, Lowe-866, coat-12
And doubtless many more.
It should really be on the drop down menus
And it should include your errors in order to encourage people to pull their socks up (reminder to me).
What do you think?

I can create such table in an instant. Even add column with Error count. It would be up to a week old, like database dump.

I could even format it like wiki, so you could just paste it on the page.

But the table would be missing private profiles and complete branches above them.

I will look into it in following days.

Here is the first preview of this table. Replace WikiTreeID with yours. Chris has 93 generations of ancestors or data is wrong.

# of Possible Ancestors is also calculated and reduced in case of duplicated ancestor.





Gee Aleš Trtnik for president WikiTreeID=Sälgö-1


I created a template ==> add {{Db_errors_Ancestors}}  and you have a link to the list on your profile


Supported Syntax

{{Db_errors_Ancestors}} Creates a link to a report for the Wikiprofile you added the template

{{Db_errors_Ancestors|Sälgö-1}} Creates a link to a report for WikiTreeID Sälgö-1

{{Db_errors_Ancestors|WikiTreeID=Sälgö-2}} Creates a link to a report for WikiTreeID Sälgö-2


Aleš isn't eligible sadly.

From UK we watch nervously and wish Aleš were.

Would this be an automatically generated table?

Found it is a descendant function also in Mr Aleš magic toolbox...

Nice to see the number of descendants that are on WikiTree
