    I'd like to add links to external web pages for individuals.

    The specific instance is a link to the wikipedia entry for Jacques Archambault. 

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques_Archambault

    Many, and perhaps most, French-Canadians  are descended from this individual.  My g-grandmother has three lines of descent from him.

    Is there anywhere in PGV that a link to this page can be added?  A raw link to the URL in a note is not sufficient, either for presentation (an anchor tag or equivalent  is needed) or placement.  Such a link may or may not be a source.  It's not a source reference to a web page, it's a link to a web page.

    There was an enhancement request some time ago related to this:

    https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2796499&group_id=55456&atid=477082

    The request was responded to, but the submitter did not reply.   She has subsequently reverted her site to TNG.

    Thanks!

    George

    You can put HTML into any Notes record.  You can also put HTML into the Advanced HTML block or into the News articles visible on the front page.  HTML is also permitted in the FAQ text.

    Perhaps I'm being obtuse, but when I put html (an anchor tag, for example) into a note it doesn't get rendered.

    For example:

    https://paulyfamily.org/individual.php?pid=I1380   (scroll down to the third note)

    Is there a trick to get html to render?

    Thanks,

    George

    Hmmm….  I guess you're right.

    We'll have to see what can be done about that.  It should be fairly easy to fix / implement.
