WP Family Tree

Description

WP Family Tree is a family tree generator plugin for WordPress. Each family member have their own post within
a “Family” category. In the family member posts you can specify birth dates, mother, father, etc. A complete family
tree can be displayed on any page with the [family-tree] shortcode.

The root of the tree can be specified with the root parameter: [family-tree root=’John Doe’]

the family tree. Please see the screenshots.

Reviews

Waste of time!

After adding family members stopped working, no pro available, official website donesn´t exist anymore, no support, just don´t waste your time installing it.

good

Although there are some small problems, but it is really good, I hope to continue

I wish pro was not at $150

Works great. I had difficulty to understand where and how to add famil-tree root but figured without support. I wish pro version was not $150. I will just wait for someone else to come up with a plugin in next few years …

Problems with image post

I leave my wp, does not work in preview post

Members page does not work either
