Forums: Index > Watercooler > Migration to UCP


We seem to have been migrated to UCP with major upgrades to our semantic extensions (which will be good when we get our heads around them). I have complained at --- Robin Patterson (Talk) 05:33, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

Semantic versions

[ Familypedia today has :



Forum header stuff now needs manual input. The coded version appears at the top. We can create a new forum by entering its page name then copying some code; not satisfactory. --- Robin Patterson (Talk) 05:59, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

Expert attentionseems to have fixed that, thank you! --- Robin Patterson (Talk) 11:29, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Tables etc on person pages

Footnotes on person pages has a note for group 1 child but it doesn't show. It contains aninternal link; is that now a problem? --- Robin Patterson (Talk) 11:29, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Descendants and trees

Descendants tab lists no descendants and tree page lists no ancestors. --- Robin Patterson (Talk) 05:33, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

I am seeing "tree pages" work, though sometimes it needs a couple of "refreshes" of the person page for the properties to "stick" Thurstan (talk) 10:25, 2 May 2021 (UTC) has had three null edits and still isn't showing her father. --- Robin Patterson (Talk) 10:38, 2 May 2021 (UTC). At last it shows her father but not his father, So I give her father's tree four null edits with no success; first click on his descendants tab didn't show Susan. Contrarily, another tree i clicked on was OK first time. Goodnight! --- Robin Patterson (Talk) 13:05, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
This one seems to be working well now. Thurstan (talk) 09:24, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
Our Manager has done a vast amount of work resulting in what looks like restoration of the descendants pages. --- Robin Patterson (Talk) 07:17, 9 May 2021 (UTC) - well, partly; should have another generation or two. --- Robin Patterson (Talk) 11:29, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Person sensor

Person sensor seems to be working, but you have to refresh the person profile page a couple of times for it to display. MainTour (talk) 03:40, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

Green quicklinks

Gone? Big nuisance. They were the jigsaw-puzzle pieces visible to the right of the edit box near the link for "show all templates". --- Robin Patterson (Talk) 10:38, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

Edit with form

"Edit with form" has disappeared. --- Robin Patterson (Talk) 05:33, 27 April 2021 (UTC) But Thurstan has recovered it (as noted below) so that the edit menu dropdown works as before. (Note that "Rename" has reverted to "Move".) --- Robin Patterson (Talk) 05:59, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

I have been using the "Edit Facts" links so I had not noticed. It is now fixed for Form:Person. Thurstan (talk) 04:28, 3 May 2021 (UTC)


Looking at Henry Scrope, 6th Baron Scrope of Bolton (c1468-1506), I see that Property:Ancestry is being set, but not reported at all. Property:Notable ancestors seems to be broken, and is not being reported correctly. It looks like {{Sensor2Page}} is out by two characters. Thurstan (talk) 06:18, 8 May 2021 (UTC)


"Preview" button on forms generates an error message.

Tweaks in templates

I did notice two of my "tweaks" were removed from the templates, one to handle pagenames with commas, the other to handle pagenames with apostrophes. Keep a watch for errors in these areas.

A few good things

  • Holy Smokes - The people pages update tons quicker. Almost instantly. That's a great improvement from before. MainTour (talk) 04:12, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
