Would you like it if WikiTree's descendant lists included photos?

+2 votes

Jaison Kanjirathinkal asked if we have a "reverse tree" where the descendant lists include photos.

We could add photos to our descendant lists (e.g. Bartlett-Descendants-10) if people wanted them.
It would add a little download time, but not too much if we just do it for the first one or two generations.
It would make the page less printable.
And I'm not sure about the layout. The list would be formatted with lots of uneven white space if it's still in the same basic format it is now. Anybody have ideas for this?

If you could work out the difficulties listed above, it would make a more attractive presentation and might encourage people to add more photos, thereby improving the quality of the profiles.
It would be really nice if there was an option to choose between including photos (or not including them) in descendant lists.  In some cases it is preferable to have the compact information without the photos.

Dear Chris,

I can't help you technically, but the layout of familyecho is in my mind.

Hi Jaison. Can you e-mail me a screenshot of that layout? I'm chris@.
Dear Chris, I have done that.

Thanks, Jaison.

Mostly for my future reference: The tree Jaison sent from FamilyEcho appears like the Javascript or Flash-generated scrollable tree you'd get in Geni, MyHeritage, etc. We're looking at adding this, probably by adapting code that Dallan Quass at WeRelate has written.
PLEASE don't use tools which Apple's iPad does not display.  For example the iPad does not run Flash. Thanks.
