Wordpress Gedcom plugin

Postby Valkrider » 01 Jan 2019 09:56

I know some members here use Wordpress for their personal sites.

I have developed a small Wordpress plugin that takes a Family Historian Gedcom and displays names and some facts on page. I have done some testing of it and it works fine for me and a friend has Reunion on a Mac and its gedcom's threw several errors which are now corrected.

I intend to try and get this on the Wordpress Plugin Repository once I have some more user input on it.

If you are interested in giving it a try take a look at http://orba-design.com/genealogy/gedshow/ where there is a fuller description and some screenshots. If you would like a copy to try please drop me an email and I will forward it to you.

Looks like a good start. I would be interested in having a play with it when it's ready.

Will you be adding a short code to display the details for a single record or jump to a page which does? Useful when including names in an article. I have been thinking about writing something for this for a while as I use TNG at the moment, but it does not integrate in very well.

This plugin is now available in the Wordpress repository at https://wordpress.org/plugins/gedshow/.

It is fairly basic at the moment but now it is available from WP I can get on and add additional functionality.

The way it works is that it displays all the surnames in the file, you then click to select one particular surname and then click again to select one particular individual and it displays the facts below their name. The facts are limited at the moment but will be expanded in subsequent releases.

I have done a couple of updates to this plugin and now have a demo site up and running if you want to check it out.
