    This thread was all about having single column for Place Hierarchy. All this time later and still am not coping with the dual column. Especially doing editing.

    I found the CSS piece you provided then and created a mystyles.css file in “xenea” theme but it didn’t work.

    /* put Place Hierarchy in single list */

    #place-hierarchy ul li {
    display: block;
    }

    Not all my edits are displaying either. I’ve corrected some several times (Admin > Update place names) and the old one still appears. When I click to show records with that Place, they still have the old name.

    I found the CSS piece you provided then and created a mystyles.css file in “xenea” theme but it didn’t work.

    Possible solutions:

    1. The file name is mystyle.css, not mystyles.
    2. Did you clear your browser cache?
    3. Is Xenea the right theme to change? You seem to use a mix of xenea and colors across your sites. If so thren you will need a mystyle.css file in each.

    Not all my edits are displaying either. I’ve corrected some several times (Admin > Update place names) and the old one still appears. When I click to show records with that Place, they still have the old name.

    That tool has to be very precise in what it changes. So using the “preview” button is a wise precaution.
    Show me a screen dump of your intended change after clicking “preview”.

    Nope, and I’m completely confused.

    Its an error about a missing apple image file. Not about kiwitrees at all.
    Your comment with it mentions an email change, but this is a topic about the Place Hierarchy.

    Time to take a break and rest a while?

    Oops!!

    I ended up editing the records individually as I read the clock as being middle of the night for you. The name would be on the list but when I entered in update, it didn’t appear or didn’t appear as the list showed. Find it very difficult to read across the two columns in “Place List” view. Too confusing! My expectation when viewing is to read downwards. So I’d have
    Poland
    Poland, place1
    Poland, place1, place2
    Poland, place1, place2, place3

    Then I knew to review all 4 in the list equal a Place. Whereas in the 2 column view, sometimes you read L-R across, or R-L across depending upon number of levels, other times you don’t. (number of levels I assume).

    I don’t always Preview first, I gamble. That said, I did Preview some of the quirks I had and got no results.

    The CSS mystyles didn’t change the view as it did in previous versions. But, you may have changed the code since then 🙂

    Another quirk is formatting as per image. Some commas are after a space, some aren’t.

    I don’t always Preview first, I gamble. That said, I did Preview some of the quirks I had and got no results.

    That’s the point I wanted to make. If preview gives you no results, then “update” will also give you no results. It simply means that the “place” you are trying to change does not actually exist (in that exact form) in your GEDCOM data. Probably related to your later comment about spaces and commas.
    You will find it works best if you also let the “auto-complete” help show you what places it finds in your data to match what you start to type.

    The CSS mystyles didn’t change the view as it did in previous versions. But, you may have changed the code since then.

    The code has NOT changed. The edit code you have DOES work. (I have double checked). The problem is related to some, one, or all of the three possibilities I gave you earlier. Repeated here:

    The file name is mystyle.css, not mystyles or
    Did you clear your browser cache? or
    Is Xenea the right theme to change?

    Another quirk is formatting as per image. Some commas are after a space, some aren’t.

    The system does not add spaces before commas. Those spaces are in your data. That is the only way you could achieve a mixture of some with and some without. So you need to search (in Update places) for both variants.

    Re. the column problem. I know all your views about that. You described the same issue recently (in https://kiwitrees.net/forums/topic/site-configuration-languages/#post-10140 ) regarding the language configuration list. I responded then with a fix for that page (for which you still haven’t confirmed if it works for you or not). I also commented :

    The vertical sorting was not really possible (easily) until some recent browser (CSS) solutions became widely accepted. They now are, so I am moving these, and the similar layout of place lists, to a vertically based design for the next release of kiwitrees.

    Unfortunately, the place list cannot be updated in isolation at this stage as its changes are tied to other areas of code not yet ready for release. So you need to retain the mystyle.css file fix.

    Okay, I tried to change entries that shouldn’t contain “Warsaw”. I entered the entry from Place List into Admin > Update Place names but they weren’t found. Yet, they’re on the list.

    PLACE-CHANGE

    This is similar to other attempts for places.

    Preview screen? Do you mean from Admin?

    Yes. With the contents of your “search for” and “replace with” entries when you try to fix the Warsaw problem, and whatever the result shown after clicking “preview”.
