Notes to users:

Notes to editors:

UP FOR DISCUSSION: The way to display the "topics" information is still up for grabs.  The individual chapter listings seem too long and cumbersome to make for efficient browsing.  The condensed chapters list is a little better but need better organization.  The "topics listing" by page displays, subjects, and functions is a little more concise but there may be a better way.    The problem with the chapter approach is that the information above is based on the Reference Guide dated 18 Oct 2013 and many changes and additions have already been added to Family Tree, so consider these updating issues with the chapter approach.  Please open this up for discussion on the "talk" page so we can figure out which one, a different approach is needed, or if all three should be left here.  Thanks


The indenting of the lines can be accessed through the code (padding-left: 1em) which should be the first parameter of the style code in the line of interest.  When in wikitext changing the "number" will increase the indentations; where 1 equals the initial (default) indent and increasing the number equals subsequent indentations (set to number to 4 for first indent,  7 for second indent and 11 for the third).
