Dear users, please, move features requests from your languages to this page with translation to english, russian or ukrainian.
Before requesting a feature read Help:FAQ and check the list of enhancements at .

Please, add new requests to Bugzilla and mark them as 'enhancement'.


[edit] Add Person

I am impressed at the form developed to enable this to happen and would be interested to use it in a mediawiki project. Is it available?

[edit] Gedcom export

[edit] Tree - draw standard lines for descendance tree, too: from spouses to their children

My uncle(person:911) was married two times. Only from first wedding he was child, but their TREE ( nor FULL TREE ( draw a line between he and her old wife for their child André(person:1010) and Bianca(person:1011)...
After selected person don't draw line between husband and wife but only draw single line between person and children...
Please, verify if is possible to draw line for person and descending spouses, too ! Thanks. Morais 23:08, 15 February 2006 (EET)

  • Don't know... When tree is drawing all ansectors are added (they are fathers and mothers). Descendances are a ALL children of person and than all children of children... When women have children from different men her children have different clan value, so be shown in defferent color. But father give to all his children his clan value, so all of his children colored by one color.
  • This type of chart (Full tree) show all ansectors and descendnce from ONE person, so links are shown only between:
  1. person, its father and its mother for ansectors
  2. persons and its children for descendances.
  • If you want you I can code other chart of other type, just decribe this type, or give me a link where I can see this type :) --Baya 14:44, 16 February 2006 (EET)

Baya, I just like that tree show/draw links between FATHER and MOTHER to CHILDREN every time, as for ansectors, TOO for descendances... Is it possible ? :-)

In this case, child(Andre and Bianca) have same FATHER (Amilcar), with same Clan and color, and same mother (Neusa).
This person(Amilcar) was husband of Neusa, but now his wife/spouse is other: Maria Cristina!
Tree has one different color for each person (Neusa, Maria Cristina, Amilcar) and blank color for sister and brother, but all of this is just very close... together/grouped... with one single line from father(Amilcar) to child !
When I see this tree I don't know who is the mother... ? Is mother Neusa or Cristina ? Correct is Neusa!

Why don't keep the standard draw of ascendance for ALL levels of tree, as better result ? Morais 22:55, 16 February 2006 (EET)

  • I will think, but it is very confused for me. Maybe I must add a special descendance tree? or recode part that show descendance.... --Baya 09:55, 17 February 2006 (EET)

[edit] Wikimedia Project

This isn't really a request, but a question. Do you think it would be a good idea to become a Wikimedia project? (Wikimedia are the organisation that maintain Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikinews, Wikitionary etc.).--Bjwebb 11:42, 21 February 2006 (EET)

Just thought I'd let you know. I've mentioned rodovid on the wikimedia foundation mailing list, if you want to see what has been said, click here.--Bjwebb 16:57, 24 March 2006 (EET)
  • Thanks %) My English is really terribly good :) When you finish with new proposal I can make translation to russian & ukrainian :) --Baya 00:05, 26 March 2006 (EET)
  • Well, I think its more or less ready, is there anywthing else that we can add?--Bjwebb 18:52, 28 March 2006 (EEST)
  • Personally, I think we should postpone the effort to become a Wikimedia project until after a merge with Wikitree.--Bjwebb 16:47, 31 March 2006 (EEST)

[edit] Special TREE - add ansectors of SPOUSE(s)

Can I change any parameter to show too the parents and ansectors of spouse(s) of select people in both TREE (person and special) ?
Or this request need changes in code of trees ?
Example: show only ansectors of this person (João Flávio) but not the ansectors of her spouse (Adriana). :-( Morais 06:05, 4 March 2006 (EET)

  • See tree of any child of them :) --Baya 18:34, 4 March 2006 (EET)
  • This persons haven't child... :-( beacause they are recently married and is a NEW Family ! As in TREE of child, if could be add SPOUSE's ansectors of selected person, too, is better for families with out child ! :-) Morais 17:11, 20 March 2006 (EET)

Could this be coded as the tree of a virtual child? Rob Hooft 09:02, 26 March 2006 (EEST)

[edit] Person - revert (delete) changes in other language on COMPARE

Hi! On 2006-Mar-07 I noticed by e-mail that one person of my family has been changed in other language: but don't had link to show differences as in other pages changes! :-O
When I edit this same people in PT db, I could see that difference was LANGUAGE DB only !
In COMPARE link I haven't how to revert changes to old version (rollback!)... and I edited the record to save last version in PT db, the correct db !
Please, add an option in history of People and Family to REVERT changes, with corresponding delete of incorrect version from db if necessary! Ex: x Morais 00:19, 9 March 2006 (EET)

[edit] Tree - HALF child is NOT present in some cases...

Why half child isn't in their family tree and other half child is present in their family tree ?

  • Tree show bloody descendants of João Baptista de Mello. João Baptista Bacellar de Mello has a two childs Plinio and Tiago. Script found half not bloody sister Erica for Plinio and Tiago, but show only for Plinio (oldest).
  • show bloody descendants of José de Abreu Assunção. His son Luís de Assunção does not have childs. So no bloody descendants by line of Luís de Assunção and no half sisters/brothers.

Two children has the same situation/case !
Children in both cases is only descendant from MOTHER and both tree is from older ascendant of new/actual spouse of their mothers... Morais 07:59, 11 March 2006 (EET)

  • In general: This type (deep tree) show not a half childs but half brothers and sisters. I will code wide tree - it will be show half childs. (deep and wide trees differs in relatives search order) --Baya 13:13, 11 March 2006 (EET)

[edit] Similar Search

Is there a way we can check for similar results, that are alsmost certainly the same people, but have not be merged by the authors. Please could you build a page that allows us to do this. Something like Special:List of similar people.--Bjwebb 22:02, 23 March 2006 (EET)

[edit] Flag of new record in Special:Contributions/

Please, add the flag of new record N! as exist in Special:Recentchanges on the Special:Contributions ! It'll be very good to verify activities of user... if duplicating persons or not.... Ahhhh, Why DELETED itens not registered in Contributions of user ? Thanks Morais 08:21, 26 March 2006 (EEST)

[edit] Country links

Why is the country link to a Rodovid page? Would it be more suitable to link to the page on the same-language "Wikipedia" page? Rob Hooft 21:53, 26 March 2006 (EEST)

Well, you could have a page about people in that country, but I think I agree with you, a link to the Wikipedia article would be better.--Bjwebb 22:26, 26 March 2006 (EEST)
  • I will code country list, similar to surnames and years. And recode link from event country to page of country. I think it will be more usefull. --Baya 15:11, 31 March 2006 (EEST)

[edit] Generating customized tree

Could it be possible to generate a tree by selecting two persons. For example: my father and his old friend had the same surname, but they're sure that they aren't family. By inserting all the data I've found, could it be possible to find out by selecting my dad and his friend and Rodovid generates a custom tree, showing only the main people? --ThePhoenix 18:02, 18 April 2006 (EEST)

  • Well, that kind of tree is just like all the others. I mean something like this: There is a page where I can select two persons. Rodovid generates a path which connects the persons or displays a message like 'No connection possible'. That kind of path is showing which connection the two persons have.--ThePhoenix 11:40, 19 April 2006 (EEST)
  • I understand now :) Move this request to bugzilla please, as "find relationships". --Baya 13:19, 19 April 2006 (EEST)
  • I'm happy to see you understand and I will add it. But in fact, it's not a bug, it's a request. --Thephoenix 18:32, 19 April 2006 (EEST)
  • I understand :) mark it as enhencement --Baya 20:28, 19 April 2006 (EEST)

[edit] Old style and new style dates

As most people probably know, we use nowadays the Gregorian calendar, but some time ago, the Julian calendar was also used in some countries. The Gregorian was introduced in 1582, but each country began using it when it chose to, and some countries used it until the First World War. (Romania, for instance, switched to the Gregorian calendar in 1919.) In addition, the difference between the two calendars was not constant, but depended on the century and sometimes on the country - there was a 13 day difference after 1900, 12 days between 1800 and 1900, etc.

So what I propose is the adding of a feature with which one can introduce a date in two variants - old style (Julian calendar) and new style (Gregorian calendar). Of course, users should still have the option of introducing only one date, since nowadays we only have one calendar left, and sometimes, the user knows only one date, without knowing whether it was an old style or new style one. -- Dumiac 18:18, 10 July 2006 (EEST)

[edit] Relationship between two people

I'd like to request a tree that draws relationship between two people, for example to find common ancestry of two people. Chaerani 19:53, 12 July 2006 (EEST)

It turned out that this request has been already given in Creating Customized Tree above. I find it very important to establish linkage between two persons in the family tree.Chaerani 05:01, 13 July 2006 (EEST)

[edit] Batch Edit

I'd like to request Batch Edit feature, for example, to change clan of several individuals at once, perhaps using checkboxes to select the batch (just like in

[edit] Род, и... проблемы склонения

Обращает на себя внимание проблема склонений фамилий по родам, что можно избежать и не заставлять составителей родословных линий делать ненужную и кропотливую работу. Удалить линию Род:такой-то со всеми замисями склонений, т.к. то, что есть сейчас -- неверно (род (кого?) "их" и т.д.). Вместо удалённого:

  • привязываем фамилию мужского рода единственного числа к наименованию рода, но в формулироке: "Род фамилии (такой-то).

Что получаем?

  • Избегаются проблемы;
  • "грамматика больше не хромает";
  • все шаблоны генерируем автоматом с использованием шаблона {{PAGENAME}};
  • прикручиваем в сайту автогенерацию дополнительной странички, где народ будет описывать происхождение рода и фамилии, и т.д.
  • в дополнительной страничке устанавливаем автоматом склонение по родам, через шаблон склонений и генерируем минимум разделов (желательных для освещения информации), таких как:
  1. Таблица склонения фамилии - генерируется автоматом
  2. Деление по слогам - генерируется автоматом
  3. Этимология
  4. Ударение - генерируется полуавтоматом (только основа, где нужно добавить ударение)
  5. Вариации (иностранные, к примеру - написания и произношения)
  6. История происхождения родов
    1. ...делится на страны происхождения (немецкая линия, голландская линия, английская линия, польская линия и т.д.)
    2. Геральдика (если есть, и автоматом сгенерировать места изображений может быть)
    3. Описания
  7. Литература
  8. Ссылки
  9. Примечания
  10. Категории - генерируется автоматом и дополняются при желании и особенностях

Можно сделать и автоматическое генерирование интересов к фамилиям и родам и на главной страничке участников: при создании нового дерева, - к примеру. Но это не совсем обязательно.

Подумайте на досуге над этим предложением. Его можно сделать без нарушений существующиго: просто - одно (из наименования рода) исчезнет, а на этом месте появится другое. Дополнительные странички с описаниями фамилии сохранятся, так как написаны по правилам склонения. Новое будет генерироваться самостоятельно и общий вид сайта приобретёт особенность и своеобразный привлекаемый шарм.

[edit] Searchin before creating a person

It may be a simple thing to you. To avoid double-pages for the same person, it would be great that in the tab "familly-link"

  • users have only the choice to look for person
  • if the person is not in the data base, then rodovid propose to create him, with names and surnames typed in the former search field.

Am I clear?

friendly yours! --Christophe Tesson 16:19, 28 November 2009 (EET)

How about persons with the same name-surname? --Igor 01:00, 6 April 2010 (EEST)
??? --Christophe Tesson - talk. 01:22, 6 April 2010 (EEST)
I think Igor is saying that we should allow the creation of a new entry even if another entry comes up in a search, since there are people that have the exact same name as someone else, even if unrelated. But I agree that a search should be automatically included in the steps for adding a person. crabGoblin 04:55, 6 April 2010 (EEST)

[edit] Incomplete searching

(Bugzilla) When searching inside of a form, the "Other given names" really should be included. As of right now, it is not. For example, Person:355000 will show up with this search for "loisa jones" from the search box, but not if I was entering the search in one of the edit forms. crabGoblin 19:47, 3 April 2010 (EEST)

[edit] GEDCom?

When is GEDcom coming back, it's been also 3 years!--Hailey C. Shannon 01:15, 6 August 2010 (EEST)

  • I am taking timeout for 1 November. After I hope I will can make real answer. --Baya 12:33, 7 August 2010 (EEST)

Hi Baya, I also come back on the topic of the GEDcom features. Any decision about when it would be implemented? --Alexandre Cotting 10:04, 21 April 2011 (EEST)

  • Currently I have 2,5 servers reorganized. 3,5 other require reorganization ((. I can't predict anything unfortunately(((. --Baya 15:09, 27 April 2011 (EEST)

[edit] Mobile phone access

I just posted a comment on an idea to develop a mobile application for accessing Rodovid here. Any comment would be great Alexandre Cotting 12:58, 9 September 2010 (EEST)

[edit] Ascendants (Inventory)

It would be a good idea to add the posibility to make a list of ascendant with the "Ahnentafel" - system.

This would be an elegant and concise way to visualize the genealogical chain between the subject and the ancestor:

1. Write down the digit "1", which represents the subject, and, writing from left to right, write "0" for each "father" and "1" for each "mother" in the relation, ending with the ancestor of interest. The result will be the binary representation of the ancestor's ahnentafel number. Using the Sophia example, there is a translation of the chain of relations into a chain of digits.

Sophia = Peter's mother's mother's father's father's father's mother's father's father's father's father's father's mother
Sophia = 1110001000001

2. If needed, convert the ahnentafel number from its binary to its decimal form. A conversion tool might prove handy.

Sophia = 1110001000001
Sophia = 7233

(from wikipedia:en:Ahnentafel --evanoni 11:56, 28 January 2011 (EET)

[edit] feed=rss and feed=atom

It is posible to edit the record with RSS-Format, but why is not possible to see te records in RSS? Only special sites like "Recent changes" has the posibility. --evanoni 11:56, 28 January 2011 (EET)

  • What do you mean? --Baya 14:47, 28 January 2011 (EET)

[edit] Географические координаты для событий

Хотелось бы получить возможность указывать географические координаты для событий. Один из возможных и очень полезных сценариев использования этой возможности — это указание точных координат могил, поскольку многие старые могилы только так и можно найти. — Dionys 23:28, 30 May 2011 (EEST)

  • А разве это нельзя указать в деталях события? --Baya 11:29, 31 May 2011 (EEST)
Можно, но хотелось бы, чтоб они были в едином стиле, чтоб по ним автоматически создавались ссылки на картографические сервисы, чтобы поиск по ним был, и так далее. Dionys 12:56, 2 June 2011 (EEST)
Попробовал. Просто не получится. ((( Вы можете пока создать шаблон для координат типа {{Coords|longtitute|latitude}}, и добавьте запрос на багзилу. А я потом смогу это через базу поправить, когда допишу обработку полей. --Baya 20:49, 2 June 2011 (EEST)

[edit] XML

It would be good idea if there where possible to see the records as XML. XML-Format is good to export records. The accion "Special:Export" is limited to users in the group "developer". An other possibility would be that anonymous users could view the "source code"-tab (in XML) instead of "edit"-tab. (Like wikipedia in protected sites). --evanoni 12:01, 8 September 2011 (EEST)

[edit] Person merge

Sometimes different users make the same persons. It's necessary to add a tool to correct this by merging persons. Alexander Korolev 18:57, 27 April 2016 (EEST)

[edit] Limiting display of whole trees

Hi, Display of big trees does not work (which is OK some trees are really big, i.e. [1] from en:Person:29818). But I would still like to display part of these trees. So would it be possible to add an option to display only a part of these big trees? I see several possibilities: only display X (10? 20?) generations, only display ascendancy or descendancy, only display links which are certain (ignoring hypothesis, etc.). Regards, Yann 19:00, 14 November 2020 (EET)
