Provides 3 new functions that return "full names" of father, mother and spouse. Developed specifically to cater to the Ancestry.xxx websites but the functions can be used with plugins developed for any search facility with similar functionality. For sites that require given and surnames to be in separate fields the previous functions should still be used. Built on autosearch_base.php version 4864 as released in PGV 4.2. Added fields in Ancestry.xxx plugins: location of birth, location of death, father's full name, mother's full name and spouse's full name.
Caveats: To gain the full benefit of this patch you need to use the "new search experience" on Ancestry sites. If you use the "old search experience" the search will still work but some fields are ignored by Ancestry.
THIS PATCH DOES NOT SUPPORT VERSIONS OF PGV PRIOR TO 4.2
Files included in zip archive:
autosearch_base.php and lang.en.php are commented to show additions.
Instructions for Installation
Copy the included files over your existing files.
If you use a version of svn in which the autosearch_base.php is later than 4864 you should use a file compare utility to make changes to that file.
Further Work Needed
3 new variables in lang.en.php need to be translated for the appropriate lang.xx.php files.
