In this issue:

GedSite Version 1.4.18 Released

Version 1.4.18 has several great new features including three new chart types:

The charts share several characteristics, including the ability to highlight entries via the Accent facility. The charts also include useful features like two-way links between chart entries and person entries. That means a visitor can click a name in the chart to see the person entry, then, from the person entry, click the name of the chart to navigate back to the chart.

The two-way chart links are implemented via the new Person References Person Entry item.

See the Change Log for a description of other minor changes.

Person References

A Person References item is included in new GedSite files. For GedSite files created prior to v1.4.18, you must add a Person References item to the Person Entry.

Person References create links in the Person Entry. They allow you to add "back links" to other pages where a person appears. As of version 1.4.18, options to create Person References are available with:

The following screenshot shows the output from two Person References items. The first Person References item has the title "Charts" and includes Chart-type references only. The second Person References item has the title "Lists" and includes List-type references only.
