BUG REPORT: gender colors not displaying on (my) '<SURNAME> Genealogy' page

+9 votes

The '<SURNAME> Genealogy' page shows every WT profile whose surname is <SURNAME>.  (E.g., the STRAEHLE Genealogy page.)

I've recently learned (from a previous posting) that every male in the list should display with a background of light blue, female with pink, and gender-free with green.

I see no background colors at all.

WT Community: if you also have this issue, would you please add a comment that describes your setup (Mac or PC, Safari or Chrome or ?? browser, screen resolution if non-standard.)

Disabled Community on WT: Does this issue affect your use of WT?

Do you see coloured padlocks in the right-hand column?
No.  But I do see colored dots that indicate the Privacy Level associated with the profile.

Are you implying that you clicked on the link in my posting, saw something (padlocks) that I can't see???  If so, Yikes!
There's a Display density option.  The high-density display has dots instead of padlocks.  It should still have coloured backgrounds though.
Do you see the colours on your Watchlist?
Thanks for working with me on this.

Yes, changing the display density revealed the padlocks.  Whew!  Still, I don't see colored background for ANY profile, including open ones.

Same (no colored backgrounds) on Watchlist.

If the profile is Private or Anonymous then I'm not sure if the background colour is available. Is this the case?

Juli i use chrome browser on normal settings.

I see pale blue (almost lilac) for males

pink for female

green for gender unknown

profiles like your own with RED padlocks are displayed on a white background.

All padlocks show the same colors as the privacy settings

Thanks Wendy, we now know that the problem is not on Chrome.

Regarding 'no color for closed profiles'... please click on the link i provided in the original posting to see that most of the profiles in the STRAEHLE list are open.  (Of 129 STRAEHLE profiles, 115 of them are open.)
