Feature request: Can we get a display of the total count of contributions on the "Contributions" page?

+5 votes

Feature request: Under "My Wikitree", on the "Contributions" page, can a feature be added to display the number of contributions made in the current month? That feature already exists on the "Badges" page but it would be nice to see it on the "Contributions" page. Make sense?

(Sorry, "month" was missing in original draft).

It does seem like a logical place to display current contributions--under Contributions, instead of under badges.  But I've been around so long that I'm so used to finding it under badges that I'd probably never think to look under Contributions.  Good idea, though.

I wanted that feature for a long time before I recently stumbled on it on the Badges page. I was blown away to find it there after wishing for it like forever. I rarely visit my Badges page but I do hit the Contributions page often. I guess how long it takes to uncover the many features of Wikitree is different for everyone. I learn something new every time I'm here.

Since the computer code is already written to track contributions, it shouldn't be a lot of work to display it to another page (said the non-programmer}. ;)

I use Navigation Home Page, as my starting page for WikiTree and total Contributions and ThankYous are listed there.

Thanks for your answer. Sorry my question wasn't clear. I'm looking for the "monthly total", not overall total contributions, which as far as I've seen only appears on the Badges page.

I am not sure what you are meaning, as it appears that way on my contributions page.... the number of my contributions is at the top.

Perhaps someone already added the feature?

It got cut off in his post but I think he meant 'Current monthly contributions' not total ...
Ah that makes more sense....wanting to see the progressive monthly count. Made in the current month.
Thanks for your answer. Sorry my question wasn't clear, Bob was right. I'm looking for the "monthly total", not overall total contributions, which as far as I've seen only appears on the Badges page.
