Fixes for fhl topic links

  • First, copy the following
{{FHLTopicLinks}}[[__ County, Utah#Libraries|public libraries]].
  • On the county page, search (Ctrl+F) for "FHLT" to find an area that likely needs fixing.
    • Paste it into the first occurrence of "FHLT" Do not leave a space after the }} of the FHLC link.
  • Replace the "__" with the name of the current county so it will link to the libraries section of that county.
  • Copy the line again (since it now has the current county name)—everything from {{FHLTopicLink}} including the period at the end of public libraries<nowiki>]].
  • Some things to also fix: the link should be to the most basic topic, not to sub-topics, such as Indexes or Inventories,...
    • Also get rid of the repetitious "Records of..."
    • Also saw   in the county link sometimes. Fix that if found.
  • Done for all counties: Make Libraries a heading, and move all resource repositories up alpha. Adjust heading levels to match in alpha.

Wasn't clear what you mean about Make Libraries a heading and move all resource repositories up alpha, so I didn't do that. Liz Snow 21:03, 10 April 2012 (UTC), we can talk after the tech meeting? 816-229-6977

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.

Yes, that's fine, the ones [history timelines] Sister Olah has done are beautiful.

Headings on County Pages for Utah

Hi Wilma,

Hope your Idaho "working vacation" holiday  was / is  grand! 

Bo and I have just finished "letters" to all 2011 Utah contributors. I will work on the excel sheet with all the data you have requested.  Timelines are being worked on and I'll get the GenWeb links completed by the end of next week.

Be safe in traveling back to Utah.

Where to place a note on your talk page?

Thank you, Wilma, for the note - the hand written as well as the "talk page".  I would appreciate messages at the top.  Where do I put a note to you?  What else would you like me to do after some "training" from you.  I am most willing and I have absorbed much.  Thank you so very much!!!! Wyzer17 22:17, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

I prefer new items at the top. But can find them either way. Thanks. AdkinsWH 16:34, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Think I messed up

What model do I us for cities in Washington County, I just realized I got confused and used the model for Washington Counties for the Washington City, Utah. Maybe I should just leave them all alone!! How should I fix my mistake? Thank you. --Utahnancy 22:16, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
