Hmm, not sure exactly what “tabularised” would look like. Presumably you mean to remove much of the content the current “person-box” format displays, especially the image.
Overall, I dislike the favourites module. I certainly don’t like it’s use on the Home page (mainly for design / visitor attraction reasons). Its use on “My page” becomes a moot point when combined with my eventual plan to remove that page completely. (see http://kiwitrees.net/kiwitrees-road-map/ )
I do however use favourites, but not the display module. I find the menu listing of them perfectly satisfactory. I just (rarely) add the display module temporarily when I need to remove a favourite as that is the only way that can be done.
A couple of other points to consider:
- The menu list of favourites serves two purposes. It contains both “GEDCOM favourites” (those normally displayed on the “Home page” for all to see) AND the (if registered & logged in) user’s personal “User favourites” that would be displayed in the block on their “My page”. To quote a famous actor “Not many people know that….”.
- Favourites can be any record type (individuals, families, sources, repositories, media items, or notes) and each can include comments. All these might make “tabularising” problematic I suspect.
For your personal “use case”, I wonder whether links in an HTML block would be easier? You also get to choose what the names link to in that case. I have a client with a list like that but of family names, each linked to the “Branches” list page.Nigel
