#2456 Link remote person


After having filled out and submitted the form for a remotelink the next window pops up but is empty. The last lines of code are


<body id="body" onload="">
<!-- begin header section -->
<!-- end header section -->
<!-- begin content section -->

No changes are made in the indi record.
There seems to be a bug.

    I found the notes at this site to be helpful: http://wiki.phpgedview.net/en/index.php?title=How_Remote_Linking_Works

    How I did it.

    1. Create an unlinked Source
    2. Edit this source directly via GEDCOM to add _DBID tags etc
    3. Add source to individual required by direct GEDCOM Edit to add RFN Tag
    4. Decide which database is going to keep the info about the family and make that the master

    Some tricks I worked out so that Ghosts don't appear...

    Don't Link and Individual to an Individual
    Link an Individual to a Family and vice versa

    0 SOUR @S111@
    1 TITL My Remote Gedcom called B
    1 URL xxx
    1 _DBID GedcomB.ged
    0 @I222@ INDI
    1 NAME The Husband
    1 FAMS @F333@
    0 @F333@ FAM
    1 HUSB @I222@
    1 WIFE @S111:I555@ <---- Gets the Wife data from the other file

    0 SOUR @S444@
    1 TITL My Remote Gedcom called A
    1 URL xxx
    1 _DBID GedcomA.ged
    0 @I555@ INDI
    1 NAME The Wife
    1 FAMS @F666@
    0 @F666@ FAM
    1 RFN S444:F333 <---- Links the Family data in from the other file
    1 HUSB @S444:I222@ <---- Get's the husband data from the other file
    1 WIFE @I555@
    << This is optional below and could be done better>>
    1 SOUR @S444@
    2 PAGE F333,I222
    2 DATA
    3 TEXT A Remote Link to Marriage and Husband

    It works well

    I've fixed the bugs relating to this window. It should now let you create links.

    However, other bugs relating to linking records are still present, and are being worked on under another bug report.
