How do I report an wikitree coding error?

+5 votes
Hovering over my grandmother's descendants page, the colored lines don't represent the correct generation.

It states:

Red is for grandchildren, but that line is her four children.

Orange is for Great-grandchildren, but that's her grand children. (me)

Blue is for great-great-grandchildren, but that's her great grandchildren.

My descendants charts work the same way, Judi.  I think this is just an interpretation issue, not a coding error.  The colored line that appears directly under a person's name is not meant to connect that person to his/her siblings, rather it's meant to highlight that person's children who are shown one more indent to the right.  (Note that there are no lines connecting siblings when there's a sibling who has no children listed.)  So the red line under grandma's name appears when you look at great-grandma's descendants page, and appears to the left of grandma's children, highlighting the grandchildren of great grandma.  I'll certainly concede you the argument that it's not the clearest presentation there has ever been (and that this is probably not the clearest explanation there has ever been)!

Seems to me that the explanation is as clear as it can be.  Maybe the problem is that the situation sabotages attempts to explain it in any sort of logical way.
Thanks Gaile.

Add the tags admin and Tech to your question, maybe.

For coding errors/bugs the best tag is "bugs" and for suggestions the best tag is "improvements". I don't think anyone follows either the "admin" or "tech" tag.
