Instructions

There are various instructions and additional instructions for different pages in the wiki. The Instructions for U.S. County pages includes general instructions. Additional instructions will be added for any pages that need exceptions to what is already listed. Below is a list of all instructions:

U.S. County Pages

Instructions For U.S. County Pages

1. Go to the Task List and sign up for state and a span of counties in that state to work on.

2. Copy the following template:
{{breadcrumb
| link1=
| link2=
| link3=
| link4=
| link5=
}}

3. Go to the first wiki page you are to fix and click on “Edit Source” to go to wikitext.

4. Go to the very top of the wiki page and paste the template copied from above. It should be above the breadcrumb that is already on the page.

5. Now copy the first part of the breadcrumb already on the page and paste that link directly after “|link1=” If you were working on a US county page, this should be the page for, United States Genealogy.

6. Go back to the original breadcrumb on the page, and copy the second link of the old breadcrumb.

7. Go back to the new template and paste the link directly after “|link2=” If you were working on a US county page, this should be the link for the state.

8. Continue to do this for all the supporting pages in the breadcrumb. Most of the time there are only 2 links before the name of the page (such as a US county). For some countries, there are 3 links before the name of the page (such as an English parish page).

9. For the last part of the breadcrumb, type in the name of the county directly after “| link5=”. For example, if the county is Aurora County, South Dakota, type in Aurora County. Do not include the word "genealogy" after the name of the page. If it is a really long page, you can abbreviate to just the basic information of the page. For example, for the page, Felling Christ Church, Durham Genealogy, you would only put: Felling Christ Church.

10. Once the breadcrumb is created, go to the bottom of the page and click on "Show preview". Check the top of the page to make sure the new breadcrumb looks correct. It should look like this:
Examplebreadcrumb.jpg

Wikitext for example:
{{breadcrumb
| link1=[[United States Genealogy|United States]]
| link2= [[Alabama Genealogy|Alabama]]
| link3=
| link4=
| link5=[[Autauga County, Alabama Genealogy|Autauga County]]
}}

11. If the breadcrumb looks correct, go back to the top of the page and delete the old breadcrumb. Be careful not to delete anything else on the page.

12. In the Edit Summary field, type in: Formatted breadcrumb and save the page.

13. Return to the task list and go to the next wiki page on your list.

SOME THINGS TO REMEMBER:

  • The breadcrumb should never include the word Genealogy on the page. If the old breadcrumb lists "genealogy" change the link so that just the locality appears in the breadcrumb. For example you would change the old link, [[United States Genealogy]] to [[United States Genealogy|United States]]
  • For counties, you should never list "North America" as the first breadcrumb. It should start with United States.

Examples

County page: Autauga County, Alabama Genealogy

U.S. State Pages

Instructions For U.S. State Pages

1. Sign up for a span of states on the Task List to update the breadcrumb by going to the Task List
2. Use the instructions from Instructions For U.S. County Pages above to add the breadcrumb template and add the correct links to the template.

SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS FOR U.S. STATE PAGES:

  • Sidebar Template: Make sure the sidebar template is first on the page, with the breadcrumb directly after it. (This helps the sidebar go to the very top of the page). See example below.
  • The breadcrumb should never include the word Genealogy on the page. If the old breadcrumb lists "genealogy" change the link so that just the locality appears in the breadcrumb. For example you would change the old link, [[United States Genealogy]] to [[United States Genealogy|United States]]
  • For state pages, you should never list "North America" as the first breadcrumb. It should start with United States.
  • There will only be United States as the link before the state.

Examples

On a state page: Alabama, United States Genealogy

Wikitext example:
{{AL-sidebar}}{{breadcrumb
| link1=[[United_States Genealogy |United States]]
| link2=
| link3=
| link4=
| link5=[[Alabama, United States Genealogy|Alabama]]
}}


Country Pages

Instructions For Country Pages

1. Sign up for a span of countries to update breadcrumbs on the Task List.
2. Use the instructions from Instructions For U.S. County Pages above to add the breadcrumb template and add the correct links to the template.

  • The breadcrumb should never include the word Genealogy on the page. If the old breadcrumb lists "genealogy" change the link so that just the locality appears in the breadcrumb. For example you would change the old link, [[Canada]] to [[Canada Genealogy|Canada]]
  • There will only be one breadcrumb before the country and that should be the region it is in.
  • The region you should use for each country is listed on the Task List.

Examples

2. Go to the county and parish you signed up for: England Parishes

  • Sometimes there are so many parishes in one county that they have been split up into one more jurisdiction. When you see an additional jurisdiction on the parish page, add it to your new breadcrumb. A good example is the parish of Rufforth: England > Yorkshire Parishes K-R > West Riding of Yorkshire > Rufforth
  • Some counties have so many parishes, they have split up the page listing all the parishes over several pages, such as Yorkshire Parishes K-R. Be sure to include the additional information (K-R) in the breadcrumb. it should be listed on the old breadcrumb. See example below.
