    Under charts, to set the abbreviate chart labels to yes is impossible. Ticked yes and saved but when I watched again no is ticked and then I can’t see the changes in the charts.

    Wow! That’s an interesting one. Investigating I can see it has actually been “broken” since August 2013 – before kiwitrees moved away from webtrees! Just shows how a) long-term users (including me) don’t look at features they don’t use; and b) how few new users actually do as you are and try out all the options! I wish more did the same.

    I have fixed this (attached is replacement for the file kiwitrees/admin_trees_config.php for anyone who wants it), but the reason for it happening is worth considering. (Wim – I’ve already uploaded this replacement onto your site for you).

    The error was caused by a decision (in webtrees) to remove the feature, but the job was not done properly at the time and that was just when we split away. Webtrees has since completely removed it, but kiwitrees retained the structure to use it, without the ability to set it. So fixing it was easy. But I wonder if, especially since no-one seems to have noticed the issue for three years if we should also remove the structure that uses it, and (slightly) simplify the code?

    Any opinions from anyone???

    For me personally I would set this to no.

    I only wanted to see what the translation of the first letters of the dutch words were. Found in the help text a wrong translation. Changed this.
    Checked the charts, translation is good, but found another issue.

    Abbreviate place names set to show the first.of 1 part, but is showing all. In the lists no problems, but the charts is wrong.

    I’ll start a new topic for this to avoid confusion as this is not as related to “Abbreviate Chart labels” as it might appear.
