Are we still using the tool to generate simple biographies

I used to use  https://apps.wikitree.com/apps/shipley1223/Bio.html to create a quick and simple biography, but lately it does not seem to work on my computer... Is this still a valid tool? or is my computer kicking dust in my face again...

I just tried it and nothing happened when I clicked Generate.

Now that I know this exists, I might be using it everywhere.,,

That is so clever. Thank you.

Where was this hiding so I can find it again. Are there other clever gadgets hiding out in the same place?
Add it as a bookmark in your browser in folder called WT shortcuts.
I added it to my scratchpad on the navigation home page.  I keep links to all the wikitree apps I like using there, as well as links to profiles I hope to someday find new information for to break down brick walls and whatnot.

I just used it and it worked fine.

Have you installed any new programs/apps on your computer or any browser extensions recently?

Sometimes just clearing cache and cookies does the trick.

I didn't know this existed but saw this when I was looking for something else. Going to try and use to help me do some cleanup work.

This is great. I think this would be a very valuable tool to give users an idea of how to reference other profiles and when and where citations are needed.

I think I might start using this and perhaps make a personal "Needs Citation" category.

Nice tool! It would be better using ref names such as Birth, Parents, Marriage, Death, Burial, etc.

Its a nice, basic tool that gives a good start on a profile. I do like that it will put in the inline refs. It worked when I tried it.

Very nice!  Works very well with the way I organize my sources on profiles.  May actually get me going on developing biographies.  Thanks for the notice.  Really makes me wonder what other goodies I'm overlooking!
