Do you have any suggestions on if I should do this change? Thank you for noticing. --[[User:Gioto|Gioto]] ([[User talk:Gioto|talk]]) 08:33, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
: Good Idea. Please hold off doing this until Mediawiki has been upgraded. Just waiting on the release of MediaWiki 1.35.x (LTS) which was meant to be released in August! Testing of Mediawiki has gone well with this version so far. [[User:Sam888|Sam888]] ([[User talk:Sam888|talk]]) 04:31, 1 September 2020 (UTC)
=Synchronizing user manual=
Hi, do you have a simpler method of syncing the user manual? I was considering going page by page and adding in missing English sections to the other languages pages (in English only), like I just did for the about page, or should I not do that? Can I swap the order of the two templates at the top and bottom so that language is 1st then the index template and at the bottom in reverse of that, so the language section is below the language template? [[User:Daleathan|Daleathan]] ([[User talk:Daleathan|talk]]) 06:47, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
eg: change:
* (man index| )
* (languages| )
* (languages| )
* (man index| )
:: Hi Dale, thanks for considering I'm pretty sure it would be appreciated. As for a simpler method sorry no, currently and for the foreseeable future it is only a manual process, the person who moved the user manual to the wiki is no longer with the project and the method the project used before was able to be packaged with the program for offline use as well as supporting translation offline quite easily using the [ Sphnix system]! I agree that swapping the order of the templates makes sense, but hold off until the 5.2 user manual rollover please .[[User:Sam888|Sam888]] ([[User talk:Sam888|talk]]) 00:43, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
= [[Template:Icon/doc]] =
Hi Sam,
Quit a lot of the icons I'm tying to use during translating the user manual, are showing question mars for example; {{icon|tdow}} I'd expect it to show a drop down list icon, or, is there something wrong with my settings?
I'd really like to learn how these icon family templates can be repaired & properly added too. A couple years ago, this domain had bandwidth issues that rendering errors when webpages had too many icons inserted. That seems to have been cleared up.
But questions on how to maintain/repair/use the transclusion template for graphics have never been answered. (I think that the person who originally added [[Template:Icon/doc|these templates]] and the [[Gramps_icon_set]] templates may no longer be active.) And I find the parameter passing portion of template writing to be indecipherable. (As you might be able to tell from my failed attempt to build a 'deprecated notice' template.

No I'm active and in our [ previous conversation] on my talk page I mentioned the reason was:
:: the only way to improve the icon template is for the webmaster(That is Sam888 right?) to install Lua scripting and then we can use the current version of the icon template that is written in Lua
So we wait. [[User:Daleathan|Daleathan]] ([[User talk:Daleathan|talk]]) 22:50, 15 July 2021 (UTC)
Can't we still populate the missing items even without migrating to a current version in Lua? It may not be the best approach but, as the old proverb Voltaire quoted: “best is the enemy of the good”

::: I'll attempt to update Media-wiki again this weekend hopefully they have worked out the issues I'm encountering! [[User:Sam888|Sam888]] ([[User talk:Sam888|talk]]) 01:52, 16 July 2021 (UTC)
:::: Did attempt upgrade of Mediawiki but it failed and the suggested [ work arounds] did not work! At this point I'm considering installing a new copy of Mediawiki and manually ( or programmatically ) copying over all the existing content, I'll research this option a bit more and may have to call on volunteers to help with the move!

= Multilingual website =
Hi, Have you considered instead of Wordpress for the Blog using Joomla because you can create a multilingual website, without having to install any third party extension?
[[User:CallMeDave|CallMeDave]] ([[User talk:CallMeDave|talk]]) 09:43, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
:Yes; previously investigated with a view to integrating both the blog and wiki into one and while promising the amount of the effort involved to migrate both to Joomla is significant, as well as not being as simple as Mediawiki for users. Only replacing the blog is a strong possibility but requires a new Gramps site template to be created and all the old blog entries etc to be migrated again a lot of effort. Thanks for the suggestion and link. [[User:Sam888|Sam888]] ([[User talk:Sam888|talk]]) 00:58, 23 July 2021 (UTC)
