forums Note the reply by Michael Ritchley toward the end of the thread.
  • A blogger turned up this, and discussed it briefly yesterday morning, but he did not know what the script was, why it was run, and what it was supposed to do. He posted this in a discussion of the moving of FamilySearch Beta into the main site, chich by the way happened this morning:

Beta Changeover to secured Url

Saturday morning another uncertain indication showed up that will go live this month. This comment showed up temporarily on the FamilySearch Wiki early Saturday morning. JamesAnderson

If you look closer, it's secured url address, not the open unsecured address Dsammy 20:30, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
  • The FamilySearch Wiki Engineering Team modified a link on this page so it will not break when the Family History Library Catalog changes in late December.

The comment and the modification disappeared before the end of the day.

If that blogger had gone to the Forums, this person would learned of the problem instantly. Dsammy 20:25, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Passed the forum thread link about this issue to the blogger. JamesAnderson 20:57, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Need for This?

Why do we continue to keep the urls (located mostly in Websites section) that were the major source of script failure when we itemized everything into Wiki pages? Something to pause and think about. Dsammy 21:19, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

From FamilySearch Staff

  • As discussed on the call, if possible, please do not create links to the FHL Catalog until engineering is sure we have the template working correctly. Check the Forums for the latest information:
