Changes page only for logged-in users.


The mod expands the search page results for logged-in users, summary of changes:

  1. 1) Adds three columns: sources, notes and media that show the total number of attached records for the person (both individual and married sources, notes and media)
  2. 2) Adds a filter line to quickly identify records based on the number of sources, notes and media they have. Also whether or not they are assigned to trees.
  3. 3) Adds an edit button on the individual to quickly go directly to edit the individual.
  4. 4) Adds an edit button on the spouse to quickly go directly to edit the family.
  5. 5) Adds a clickable link to the source, notes and media numbers to see these on the individual page (depending on your configuration).
  6. 6) Adds the year of the marriage next to the spouse

Mod is intended to make editing and finding records more robust for a user. For example, you can see just records with no source citations at a glance, in case, you are working to make sure that all records are properly cited.

In action, it looks like this:


The mod offers an option in the mod manager to change the behavior of the search for logged-in users. If chosen, when only one record is found, it will go to search results instead of directly to the individual's page.


This mod was developed by A.S. DuPree (a novice, happy for any help on improving it)
