Edit summaries

Hi Wilma. Got a favor to ask of you. Going forward, will you please add edit summaries to your edits? This'll save me time from having to compare revisions each time I'm working on a page you're also working on. Thanks! RitcheyMT 05:24, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Edit Problems

Your changes this afternoon to caused the border to be deleted on the United States table. When you made that change were you doing the edit in just that section or did you use the edit button for th whole page? Knowing which way you did the edit may help us understand the cause of the change. Darris G. Williams 21:08, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Hi Darris. All I did was add Utah to the table. I'll admit I was tempted to change the table a bit, but did not. I usually do only the specific section when I edit. Looking at it again, I am certain it was in the specific area where the edits were made.AdkinsWH 15:25, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Editing in the "section only" opens up a can of worms due to some problems with the FCK editor. It does not see some codes that it expects, then adds them in automatically when you save the work you are doing in that section. If the code existed in the preceding or following section then the page as a whole gets jumbled up. Fran has suggested that the section editing capability be turned off until the FCK editor is fixed but engineering has not moved on either request. It is possible, I think, to turn the section editing off in your preferences or just edit the whole page as a standard practice. We don't know that the disappearing table border is due to editing in the section only and will be reporting this problem for the Support Team to investigate. Darris G.

Hi Sister Adkins,

Just checking to see if my "Salt Lake County" links are OK - if not please let me know.  Thank you for the time you spent with me last week. I have four missionaries who are getting involved besides me.

Thank you


We appreciate the discussions and decisions made by a community of experts and interested parties regarding headings on the county pages especially for New York and Illinois, We want to adopt many of those changes and adapt some specifically for Utah.

Will you please review the page for FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Utah County Headings county headings in Utah and make comments on its discussion page?

Some volunteers for WikiProject Utah have already begun adapting the county pages. Your great suggestions will be implemented later, and we need to move now to prepare for a big push in January.

Making your comments on the discussion page will allow for transparency, progress and improvement.

Thank you,
Wilma Adkins, WikiProject Utah manager; Marilyn Markham and Patsy Hendrickson, content specialists; and Dawne Hole and Wyzer17, communications and volunteers liaisons
