Looks Good

Am still experimenting with this plugin on a test WP site. Seems to be working fine. If I end up using it on my main site I will certainly make a donation.

Still The Best WP Genealogy Plugin
By , for WP 4.0.1

This really is a great plugin. I have used it for others on their genealogical sites. After upgrading to 4.0.1, I feared that RootsPersona might not work at all. Apart from a little glitchy behavior on the captions for person galleries (the images at the bottom of a person page), I have yet to find any flaws.

It still imports geds and generates beautiful pages by the 100s in seconds. Thank you, ed4becky!

Extremely Useful
By , for WP 3.8.2

I love this plugin. The only things i don't like is the inability to more completely control the formatting of the family charts and the lack of gedcom export features.
But I highly recommend this plugin to anyone looking to build a genealogy website.

unusable in French!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Works fine but does not recognize accented characters or special characters ==> unusable in French!
My GEDCOM tree is encoded in ANSI, I can not change that.
The plugin should provide an option to select the import of all special characters when it is encoded in ANSI instead of UTF8.

Great Plugin

I was a little confused by the description but installed this i WP3.6 and couldn't be happier. The output plays well with several themes that I've tried, and provides a wonderful way of displaying my gedcom data and soliciting involvement of possible site visitors with comment forms under each and every of many, many pages. One can put individuals in a menu, as suggested in the description, or simply the database for searchers on names within the database. Great job.

Exactly what I needed
By , for WP 3.4.2

Actually integrates my tree into my WordPress site. It creates Person pages as actual WordPress pages that include a Family Sheet, a Descendant Chart, a list of life events & a list of Sources for each individual. This makes it easy to use WordPress tools like the comment system & Search and to add selected Person pages into Menus. The plugin automatically creates Person & Source index pages with pagination.
