GedSite News #020
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.
Box Descendant Chart
The Box Descendant Chart shows the descendants of a subject that you identify in the chart properties.
For more information, read the Box Descendant Chart help page.
Box Pedigree Chart
The Box Pedigree Chart shows the pedigree of a subject that you identify in the chart properties.
For more information, read the Box Pedigree Chart help page.
Box Relationship Chart
The Box Relationship Chart shows the relationship between two people that you identify in the chart properties.
For more information, read the Relationship Chart help page.
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:
- Box Descendant Charts
- Box Pedigree Charts
- Indented Descendant Charts
- Indented Pedigree Charts
- Lists of People
- Person Links
- Relationship Charts
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.
