  • Resolved sleepydaze


    I love this plugin! However, is it possible to edit the individual pages that are generated from the plugin? I understand that I can use the shortcodes to create the surnames and individual family member pages, but if I wanted to add narrative content to an an individual family member’s page, would it be possible? Would it also be possible to add narrative content to an individual surname’s page?

    The individual pages don’t allow that. However, you can create a narrative page for any individual as per the readme with a third shortcode.

    The third shortcode is [gs_individual id=”I1″ name=”Y”] This shortcode can be placed on any page or post and will display the persons name (if Y is in the shortcode) followed by their Birth, Marriage and Death details and then any person level notes. Additional information and photos can then be added in the usual way. The reference number can be found for the person in the header of their normal Gedshow page by hovering over their name. More details on the demo site.

    Once you create a page an extra icon appears for that individual looks like a sheet of paper. If you click on that it takes you that narrative page for that individual. Hopefully that will help achieve what you want.

    Thank you for your quick response!

    I’ve used the shortcode [gs_individual id="I1" name="Y"] on an individual page, but I’m not seeing the “sheet of paper” icon next to the individual’s name in the surname chart.

    Have you followed the instructions to identify the correct id of the person? I1 is purely an example. Post the url of your site and the name of the person so I can check it out.

    Ooops! I figured it out. I navigated to the Page section to Link the page to a person’s record. Thank you so much!

    No problem glad you got it sorted.
