This modification was suggested by one of our users who's got a 6-digit ID.

Purpose of the mod

If a logged in user uses the Relationship calculator and is also registered in the current tree the mod will:

  • Insert the user as Person 2 if there is no one else
  • Insert a Me button between the input field and the Search... button if another person is already Person 2

The button is clicked to enter the user's ID into the input field.

If the user is not registered in the current tree the mod has no effect.
