Hi On the [https://gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php/PseudonymTree.gramps PseudonymTree.gramps] when I attempt to download [https://gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php/File:GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020). gz File:GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gz] I only get an empty file and checking the wiki filesystem only shows a zero-byte file? Please upload a new version or send to me, or possibly convert it to a "zip" file for the windows users?  Also, a lot of what you have done in this file should be added/merged to the example.gramps which has the same purpose and is included with each release of Gramps, eg raise a feature request to merge the two files?<br />
 
Sam888 ([[User talk:Sam888|talk]]) 02:29, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

That's odd as the .gz file lists & downloads as 9kb on my phone & PC. I did something unusual for the hotlinks. (Maybe that is why you're seeing a zero byte file if you choose Download while right-clicking the link?) The links forward to the file management wiki page instead of being a download link for the file itself. (It took a bit of searching to discover how to correctly override the linking of the image too!)
 
  
Please note that the gzip (GNU zip) format is native to the .gpkg & .Gramps formats as written during backup in Gramps. Using the ZIP format would make it incompatible with Gramps.

Finally, I see the example.gramps and this file as being at cross-purposes & not suitable for merging.

*based on the [https://sourceforge.net/p/gramps/mailman/gramps-users/ Gramps-users] archived threads:

:[https://sourceforge.net/p/gramps/mailman/search/?q=%22Group+As+name%22 threads with "Group As name"]
  
Example.gramps contains records VALID for actual genealogical use & real-world testing. (Since it is also used for unresolved bug reports & automated testing, changing this now 'standardized' Reference File might invalidate those key processes. Mods to the example.gramps probably ought to pass through a new 'standards' verification & approval.)
 
  
The Pseudo tree is specifically incompatible with real-world use. It is an abstraction model.<br />

== Rollback on user manual ==
+
<!--
I'm rolling back several edits you made to the past user manual and the current user manual to nonexistent categories. I'll protect the older non-English user manuals from change. Please only edit the current user manual and if you notice that the old user manual can be edited, drop me a note, please. <br />
 
Sam888 ([[User talk:Sam888|talk]]) 02:48, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
 
  
I'm sorry to see those rollbacks. The categories were already in use for other pages in those languages. These changes merely consolidated all (except 4 admin locked pages) non-English pages falling into the 'Documentation' category. It harmonized them into the subcategory listings for each language. This still left the obsolete manual pages cluttering the category but we've been discussing options for addressing that. (There is value in keeping the old versions on the wiki. Offloading them would break the 'Help' in legacy versions of Gramps. Also, some of the old documentation illustrates changes in approach & gives timeline context to evolving features.) Will follow-up in email.<br />

Can we clean out unused categories to eliminate clutter in the Category index?

Once the template content is cloned, Edit the page.  Paste the raw '''[[:Category:Tutorials|Tutorials]]''' outline for your new '''[[:Category:How_do_I...|How Do I...]]''' article above the '''See also''' section. This "raw Tutorial outline" might be simply pasting in a copy of a useful thread from one of the Gramps maillists or the Discourse forum.

:: According to "What links here" only one page does for the Czech(cs) language and I've changed that page to use the proper page. The answer is yes to cleaning up, but please use the "What links here" link to determine that and make sure the linked pages point to the correct page etc.. Thanks for your edits Cheers<br />

Finding a ''[[Gramps_Glossary|Gramps Glossary]] term'' to link may be easier than choosing the best introductory section in the wiki.

  &#91;&#91;Gramps_Glossary#P|Primary Object]]</small>
 +
Glossary terms (like [[Gramps_Glossary#active_person|Active Person]] above) are normally lowercase and use an underscore between words. They have a brief description and may already have the introductory text and practical tutorial linked. You can fall back to the Letter index (like using '[[Gramps_Glossary#P|P]]' with [[Gramps_Glossary#P|Primary Object]] above) if you don't know the exact entry.
  
==QueryGramplet==
+
Since most of these ''How do I...'' tutorials are likely to have been prompted by a MailList discussion, a set of example 'See also' link are included for reference.  
I was attempting to use the [[QueryGramplet|Query Gramplet]] but could not find as it is [https://github.com/gramps-project/addons-source/blob/maintenance/gramps51/Query/Query.gpr.py Unstable and not listed] in the addon list. I ended up attempting to manually install it from the link on the [[:5.1_Addons]] page, should a note be added to its page about this? Haven't tested yet but did manage to install and take a screenshot. Wonder why it is not listed for download?  <br />

:That's a good point. A 'Warn' would probably be appropriate. This Gramplet pre-dates the switchover to SQLite and there's been a resurgence in interest.
+
Pointing the ''maillist archived thread'' link to the original message that inspired the tutorial give proper credit for the idea &amp; reveals the background discussion.
  
:Getting some more users (and bug reports) might lead to the Gramplet becoming more stable & useful.<br />

Pointing another link to a good search phrase for the archive allows similar discussions to be explored.

==Extract Place Data from a Place Title==
+
To remove the virtual Copy&amp;Paste clipboard, simply delete everything from the beginning of this section to the bottom of the document. It is all disposable.
Can you help?
 
  
I was attempting to clarify what exactly "place title" is when it says " extract city, state/province and zip code information from a place title. "   eg: extract from where?   
+
If the Copy&amp;Paste clipboard is needed again, simply paste the following line at the end of the Edit box, Save a revision, &amp; edit again.(Previewing isn't enough... a revision must be saved.)
 +
<pre>   {{subst:Template:How_do_I}}</pre>
 +
Other wiki [[:Category:Templates|Templates]] can be used as virtual Copy&amp;Paste clipboards in the same way.
  
Also it has a ''Notes'' section that seems random and not integrated with the rest of the article?

I believe this tool was probably created to parse imported data. And the source program transferred a Place without an ID or structured Hierarchy... just a chunk of variable format text. It might even be from a vCard instead of another genealogy program.

It is an early enough tool that it was built by Don.  The code indicates that there was a Place format change ... from a collated comma separated field into a distinct hierarchy form.

Please use carefully on data that is backed up, and help make it better by reporting any comments or problems to the author, or issues to the bug tracker
Unless otherwise stated on this page, you can download this addon by following these instructions.
Please note that some Addons have prerequisites that need to be installed before they can be used.
This Addon/Plugin system is controlled by the Plugin Manager

🚧 Unreleased add-on

You may install the addon manually if you are interested in helping to test and report issues.
Beta testing involves a significant risk of data loss and corruption. Make a well-labeled backup frequently.

🚧 Work In Progress

This wikipage is a cloned outline from a template. It is a VERY temporary placeholder in my personal discussion area.

Since you are reading this paragraph, then the I have not progressed to the point of trimming out the excess template material. That means the wikipage is certainly not ready for collaborative editing yet. Multiple people editing now might unintentionally overwrite their work. Contact me via the Discourse discussion forum while this page exists as a 'Discussion' page.
