Description of Warning - 946: Too many inpage links.

The profile has over 100 inpage links.

Description of SPAN anchors and links to them: Span anchor is set by <span id='name'></span> and links to it are set by [[#name]] or [[#name|link text]]. That creates the inpage link to the anchor and clicking on that link scrolls the page to the anchor location where you usually read more about something. While such linking is not recommended on WikiTree, it is not forbidded and the use is not a subject of suggestions. But there can be errors using such links and they are reported. Possible errors are that there are Duplicated span Anchors, where 2 anchors have the same name, Missing span Anchors where there is a link to an unexisting anchor, Unused span Anchors that lists all anchors that are not used and Too many inpage links where there is just way too many of them,

Content of info column: Number of inpage links.

Possible Causes

  • Usually a faulty gedcom import.

That depends on the source. You understand that the Suggestion Lists INFO column shows the issue for the linked profile. This doesn't mean there are too many sources; it means the code <nowiki><span id='name'></span> </nowiki> appears over 100 times within one profile.

If there are too many, does this indicate that Sources should be removed from a Profile because there are too many on a profile?
My experience is that the same source is repeated over and over, and that is what needs to be corrected.
