    bootsbootes wrote in other thread to add Admin option for all CAPS surnames. Would like that for all themes (I use Xenea by default)! Wanted that since starting PGV. Yes, I know about language differences but even those need to distinguish some form of surname. If not, don’t check the option.

    For clarification, Paul said:

    One feature I particularly like in this theme is the upper case SURNAMES and I would like to suggest this even becomes independent of theme and becomes a tick option in the layout or hide/show level of the Family Tree itself.
    I’ve been meaning to suggest it as a request for new feature on the webtrees forum, but feel scared to stick my head out of the pram!

    I will look into the config option. But doing it via css as in the simpl_grey theme is very easy. It will probably not be so easy to do it via php. Unless I can come up with something that works without re-writing half the system, it will have to remain a styling option in certain themes only. But I don’t disagree with the proposal.

    kiwi,

    Thanks for being willing to consider. That’s big step forward. Of course code re-write is too extreme so where it is possible, appreciated.

    OK, so I couldn’t resist the challenge…..;-)

    That’s the good news. The bad news is that you will need to wait for the next release to use it. It does involve small changes to a couple of files that already have other changes, so not really practical to release as a simple replacement.

    It is also worth noting that even in the current simpl_grey theme this cannot be done at every place where surnames appear. It requires that the surname is displayed separately (in the code) from the given names, and in some places such as charts and block headers this is not available. It would definitely be too much work to change that. But this does work in the important places.
