Re: Citing Marriage Banns

Even if there's other value in the banns source (I have an early nineteenth century one that idetifies both fathers by occupation and residence, which was really useful in working out which James and John families i was dealing with when theyre both really common surnames in Pembrokeshire) the actua...

Re: Citing Marriage Banns

I'd ask myself what's the value if recording the two place and address fields, when I'd have that information in the source if needed.

If they were read in two different churches, technically they were two different events...

Re: New Page - Writing Plugins Compatible with Mac/Linux

In this new article none of the early occurences of 'plugin' or 'WINE' are at the beginning of a line. They all seem to occur in the middle of normal text, so what are the other 'quirks'? As I said! "annoying undocumented quirks" There are a large number of occurrences of those glossary w...

Re: New Page - Writing Plugins Compatible with Mac/Linux

The program that implements the glossary has some annoying undocumented quirks. It will not, for example, highlight a glossary word, if it's at the beginning of a line. It's been upgraded recently, so I suspect some more annoyances have crept in. I'll report them, but don't anticipate anything other...

Re: Citations from Legacy are not shown in FH

Re: New Page - Writing Plugins Compatible with Mac/Linux

Would a rephrasing to something like “if a Windows user had created an \etc folder in a Z:\ local or mapped drive” be clearer? If there is a particular signature file that is always present in Mac OS, that would be better, but we need advice from our Mac users here. Yes. There is a PowerShell comma...

Re: New Page - Writing Plugins Compatible with Mac/Linux

The most reliable method appears to be looking for the presence of a Z:\etc folder, where Z:\ is the WINE mapping of the root directory of the host OS, and the /etc directory is the standard location of configuration settings in Unix-derived systems. Clearly, this would flag a false positive if a W...

I was just surprised the admins left it there. As I said, I can't move it without causing confusion.

tatewise wrote: 29 Jun 2024 11:41 OK, so we have learnt something not mentioned before, that WINE folders support a much smaller subset of FSO attributes than WINE files. Presumably, that will be fed into the updated fhFileUtils.fh_lua library.
New library was released with 7.0.23 that addresses this issue.

Re: Completing location and address in facts

There's a Mount Avenue in Southall, which was in Norwood at the time, and I note Frederick was in Southall in the 1921 census. Bedford Villas probably referred to a small set of terraced houses put up by a builder under that name and won't show up on a modern map. In 1911, there was Bedford Villas i...
