    [Transferred from support topic: https://www.kiwitrees.net/forums/topic/source-citation-details-not-retained/ ]

    Just came across a small problem. Had to enter a number of new photos – all from the same source. Added them under the ‘Album’ tab of the appropriate individuals. For each I entered the same source, and having entered ‘Received from Andrew 19 Oct 2020’ for the first, I expected, as usual, that for the second and subsequent additions, the citation would be amongst the drop-down list to be selected, but NO,each time I had to re-enter the same text. I checked a different method of entering data with a source and was relieved to find that all was well – it seems that only under ‘Album tab’ – Add a new media – does the problem arise.

    That is true. I had never come across this before, but you are correct. I suspect it was left out because there have been (a long time ago) disputes over whether source references are relevant on media objects. Some people (not me) think the media object is itself a form of “source”.
    Currently that autocomplete field for citations only references matches in INDI and FAM records. I will investigate adding OBJE to this.

    This is now fixed. You can download the zip folder attached to this post, extract the file ‘autocomplete.php’ and upload it your your web server, replacing the file of the same name in the root kiwitrees folder.
