The support for this mod is discontinued.
You can use Jeff Robison's Add Person Siblings Row mod instead: It has many nice features.

Purpose of the mod

To show a list of links to the Individ's siblings, if there are any.
The name (link), date + place of birth and date + place of death are shown, if rights permit.

The list can be open or collapsible and can be placed as the last Standard event in the Personal or the Parents section in getperson.php.

If the list is placed in the Personal section it is called Siblings and doesn't include the Individ.
If it is placed in the Parents section, it is called Children and includes the Individ.

The list in the Personal section is not shown if the Individ is the only child of the family.
