Fancy Branches


This module requires webtrees 1.7.0 or later.


This small module is an enhancement of the Branches list which can be found in the Main Menu  under Lists / Branches. If this module is activated  it allows the user to expand or collapse each family branch to make viewing easier.

It also has an optional styling feature that can display numbering for each family member using the d’Aboville numbering system. Activate the option from the Fancy Branches configuration page in the Control Panel.

NOTE: It is not not recommended to use this add-on if you have large numbers (thousands) of individuals in a single branch of your family tree. In such cases activating the module could make page load very slow.


You can help to translate this module. Updates to translations should be made at Changes made there will be pushed to the git repository periodically and will be available on the development version of the module. They will be included in the next release of this module.
