Fancy Treeview


This module requires webtrees 1.7.0 or later.


This is the most popular module of the Fancy series. With this module it is possible to add multiple pages for several branches in your family tree. The branches will be listed from the first generation down to the last one in a narrative way. It gives your users a quick overview of your family tree. Of course privacy rules are respected.

The package comes with a language file to translate the module into your own language. At the moment the module is already translated into 14 different languages. The module supports rtl-languages. New in this version is PDF support for rtl-languages.

Stylesheets for all the core webtrees themes, JustBlack, JustLight and the Rural theme are added to the module package as well.

On the Fancy Tree View configuration page you can set multiple options. To start using the module enter a surname in the text field. The script will automatically search for the oldest person with this surname. It is also possible to manually enter the ID of the person you want to set as root person. After adding the root person you can set several other options. You can enter as much surnames as you like. There will be a menu-link and page created for each surname using the options you have set.

Fancy Treeview PDF

Longtime users of Fancy Treeview are used to have the PDF-option inside the module by enabling it at the configuration page. This is changed now. From now on the Fancy Treeview PDF-option is offered as a separate download. This is done due to the fact the PDF-library and especially the font-library inside this library is very huge. Since webtrees offers a lot of languages we need the extended font-library to serve your visitors from all parts of the world.

If you don’t need the PDF-option or you don’t have enough disk space on your server (minimum of 100MB free space is required) don’t install this extra module.
