Issues/Questions/Suggestions

  • A "Show Preview" option on the merge screen would really be great! Beardsley-386 03:06, 19 November 2016 (EST)
  • "'On FindAGrave, can a link to the actual memorial number be added or can the memorial number be included in the connection? As it is, the link is to the generic FindAGrave page. Even a link to the search form would be more useful." Kitty S.
    ::::I agree with Kitty's suggestion. As with the Ancestry entries, this can be easily edited on the merge screen but it would be faster if this was the automatic entry.Beardsley-386 20:31, 18 November 2016 (EST)
  • The "merge" of the information seems to a "Fact:" entry under the biography section by default along with an entry in the Sources section, but above the <references/>. Maybe would be better appending under the <references/> indicator?
    ::It is easy to edit the placement on the merge screen to place the new entries where you want them, but this might speed things up a bit. Beardsley-386 20:22, 18 November 2016 (EST)
