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.

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

 +
 
 +
Once the tutorial Preview is satisfactory, save a revision of the document. Then clean out the virtual Copy&amp;Paste clipboard cluttering up your tutorial and save a final revision.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
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.
 +
 
 +
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>

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?

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.

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.)

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.

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.)

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.
 
  
Getting some more users (and bug reports) might lead to the Gramplet becoming more stable & useful.

🚧 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.
