Some themes have fact icons that display in the individual.php next to the fact description. As of svn 519, these icons can change by century, decade, or subtype to allow more variety in the display. Many facts change over time. Military uniforms, marriage dress, occupations are just a few examples. Others facts like religion can vary by type. Now, code has been added to show these changes. The way to utilize these changes is to add .gif files to the themes/*/images/facts/ directory, and to have Manage Gedcoms -> Edit Configuration -> Display and Layout -> Hide and Show -> Show Fact Icons set to Yes.
A standard fact icon is the gedcom fact type in upper case, and .gif as the extenstion. Ie. CENS.gif for census and _MILI.gif for military. We use an "_" underscore as the seperator to add more details to the filename. The decade or century is prepended, and the subtype is postfixed.
Subtypes: After dates are prefixed to see if there is a match, subtypes are postfixed to and checked for a match. The first four characters of the data portion of the fact are capitalized, and used as a subtype. Since examples show best:
2 DATE 12 DEC 1861" becomes the most specific available icon of 1860__MILI_CONF.gif, 1800__MILI_CONF.gif, _MILI_CONF.gif, or simply _MILI.gif.
There are two special cases in the code.
1) OCCU + "farm" somewhere in the first 60 characters of the record loads OCCU_FARM.gif or its dated version. This is to match farmer or farm hand. In 19th century America census records, this is the most common occupation listed.
2) OCCU + "hous" or "keep" to match house keeper, keeping house, etc for the wife, loads OCCU_HOUS.gif.
I will be adding icons to this page as soon as I draw up freely usable ones. To start with:
