Display only one error type

On Wikitree+ when searching for errors, you can limit display of errors to a single error type.

I also added automatic exclusion of common errors in case a lot of errors needs to display thus reducing table size and speed. Example http://wikitree.sdms.si/function/WTWebUser/errors.htm?WikiTreeID=WikiTree-45&ErrorID=0

Help files

Finally added all missing help pages. If some DataDoctor wants to spellcheck them or extend existing help pages, I will be very happy. Just let me know, so I can add you in the trusted list.

Previous news

Added possibility to see 1st generation tree according to dates for all errors and in search results

Added possibility to see 1st generation tree according to dates. Next to Wikitree link is a link Tree, that shows the tree. It may help understand relatives of a person.

Years scale on left and right is now showing actual years.

Birth and death years on the person didn't display correctly on years before 1000.

Example: http://wikitree.sdms.si/findtree.htm?userid=3540972

Added magic words 0cen, 1cen, ... 20cen, 21cen IsInWikiData in search definition

I added special magic words to search definition, so you can search for profiles with birth in any century. 0cen is for profiles with unknown birth date. If any of relatives has birth date set, estimation is made for birth date, so even profiles without dates are in apropriate century. You can combine that word with name, location, category or template. It its accessible on WikiTree+ in Group Search / All Wikitree,

Added magic word IsInWikiData in search definition

I added special magic word to search definition, so you can search for all profiles, that are in WikiData connected to WikiTree. you can combine that word with name, location, category or template. It its accessible on WikiTree+ in Group Search / All Wikitree,

AutoCorrect implemented

Latest addition to correcting errors. With changes to MergeEdit page (WikitreeX) https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/347756/improvements-merge-edit-page-importing-information-wikitree we are now able to automate corections, where I will see it useful.

We will start with UTF errors, since they have clear correction. Later other corrections will be added. So errors 609. 639. 515, 525, 535, 545, 555, 565, 585 and 595 (Marriage location and LNAB are excluded, since automated edits don't work for them) can be corrected by by two clicks. They are also corrected all at once for profile being corrected.

How does process work: After you click Correct button, MergeEdit page opens with prefilled data, that needs to be changed. Those fields are already selected to be used. You must review them, you can also correct any field and bio as you see fit. Description of Edit action is also already filled. When you are satisfied with edits, press Correct button and changes will be saved.

If a profile was already edited since last dump you get red notification box when MergeEdit page opens. Probably autocorrection on the profile was already done or some other edit occurred on the profile. You can continue with the edit, but be extra careful of fields, that you are changing. You can also chose not to correct the profile at this time and do try it again next week with fresh data, if the error still exists.

If no changes were made to the profile Correct button is hidden.

When saving changes, profile is checked for some errors and must be corrected before saving.

For now Autocorrect is enabled only in prepared error lists. Later it will be added also to errors from WikiTree+.

Since this is all new, be alert to any wrong behavior, check profile after edit, change logs for actual changes,...

Also don't be too quick with edits. You can get automatically locked out as a spammer.

As every week, working on error 912. Since it usually involves changing LNABs and all orphans are long since corrected it is slow work.

Paula, the error is on Placé, Mayenne, which actually exists but, fearing it was a case of auto-completion for "place" I requested to have it added to bogus locations. This location appears on profiles of people who probably never went to France. Will post a message on the pages. Thanks for the heads up!
