Major update to research links module. Many thanks are due to Wim Meijberg for his support, encouragement, and testing to improve this module, and for adding a HUGE number of Dutch research sites to the list!
Gender is now available as a search term for sites that use it
Extend research links to include death year
Sites that rely on javascipt / ajax coding to process search terms can now be included
Many new links are added: Dutch sites from Wim as mentioned above; plus others for the UK and New Zealand
A completely new page (Lists > Research links) now compliments the existing side-bar tool. The new page allows the links to be used for searching individuals whose details you do not yet have in your family tree data
Installation: minimum PHP version required updated to 5.6. Earlier PHP versions no longer receive security maintenance from PHP, so it is essential that 5.6 is now the minimum.
A number of modules have been renamed:
simpl_research: research links
FancyTreeView: fancy_treeview_descendants (and a new version added: fancy_treeview_ancestors)
All temporarily named “resource_” plugins become “report_” plugins.
NOTE: This is a complex process that may cause some upgrade complications. Please read and follow the upgrade instructions for this release very carefully.
