New Agenda Items[edit | edit source]
- It was decided to adjust the colours in the parish infobox to those that now display on Advent, Cornwall Genealogy. The colour chosen for the heading background is Gainsboro; code: DC DC DC.
- Steve did a replace to rename poor law union pages that lack a county name in the title to also include a county name. The code in the infobox template now leads to the correct poor law union page.
- Online Parish Register Abbreviation Tables
- With or without lines?
- It was decided to remove the lines from the boxes in online parish register abbreviation tables. Steve is exploring ways to do a global replace to remove them. He has already started on Cornwall and Devon.
- Standardised breadcrumb trails
- It was decided to include three elements on a parish breadcrumb trail: Nation > County > County Parishes.
- Proposed changes to census template
- The template British Census was shortened. It is to include a link to descriptions of websites with online censuses as well as the FHLC link to that parish's census records on microfilm.
- At what point does a parish page graduate from being a stub?
- There was general agreement that a page graduates from being a stub once the parish history is written and information about the place's parish registers is added.
