:: 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,
[[User:Bamaustin|Bamaustin]] ([[User talk:Bamaustin|talk]]) 14:52, 15 July 2021 (UTC)
: I think that the person who originally added [[Template:Icon/doc|these templates]] and the [[Gramps_icon_set]] templates may no longer be active
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?

: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)
