Where to find and set hit counters

Hit counters are a feature of many applications, and allow some measure of the use (or popularity) of pages.

PhpGedView allows you to show hit counters. To set or unset this feature, you must have admin rights. In the Administration panel, click on Manage GEDCOMs.../ then Edit for the Configuration file. Under Display and Layout you will find Hide and Show...down the bottom of that pane is the option.

Data is stored in a text file in the index folder. If you look, it will have a name like xxxxx.gedpgv_counters.txt, where xxxxx is the name of your original GEDCOM.

Within the text file are lines like:

3
@I026@ 2
@I003@ 24

The first line is the counter for hits on the opening page. The next lines show the hits on individual's pages.

Glossary

This is a list of the various acronyms & abbreviations (with their meanings) that I put together, that you may use.

===========================================================================

ABT - Author was not sure of exact date. Means "About".

AFT - Author knows event happened "after" a certain date.

AFN - stands for Ancestral File Number -- This is a number that is set by LDS if any of the information you have in your GEDCOM has been submitted to LDS, either by you or by another. This number is as unique as your fingerprints, and should not be changed. IF you change it, you could inadvertently tie that person's AFN to another's, and you could have problems in the future. Best bet is not to change this number (if present) at all.

ANSEL -- a type of character set, used for when exporting GEDCOMs from your local software. NOTE: Select ANSEL unless you know that the other person uses a program that requires ANSI, or unless you have Cyrillic characters or nonroman characters (such as Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Arabic, Hebrew, or Cyrillic) in the .paf file. If you use a character in a .paf file that is not included in one of these standards, the character will not be copied into the GEDCOM file.

ANSI -- a type of character set, used for when exporting GEDCOMs from your local software. NOTE: Select ANSEL unless you know that the other person uses a program that requires ANSI, or unless you have Cyrillic characters or nonroman characters (such as Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Arabic, Hebrew, or Cyrillic) in the .paf file. If you use a character in a .paf file that is not included in one of these standards, the character will not be copied into the GEDCOM file.

BEF - Author knows event happened "before" a certain date.

BIC - The individual's parents were sealed before he or she was born. Means "Born In the Covenant".

CAL - Author "calculated" the date from 2 or more varying sources.

CAN - A couple's LDS sealing was "cancelled".

CLE - The name has been submitted for an LDS ordinance, but the ordinance work has not yet been done. Means "Cleared".

COM - LDS temple ordinances have been done, but you do not know the dates. Means "Completed".

DNS - An LDS sealing should not occur. Means "Do Not Seal".

DNS/CAN - A sealing-to-spouse ordinance was cancelled and should not be redone.

EST - Author "estimated" a date with a family tradition or with a standard genealogical estimation.

GEDCOM - stands for GEnealogical Data COMmunication.

ID - stands for IDentification.

INF - An individual died as an "infant".

LDS - stands for "Latter Day Saints", referencing the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints -- LDS is mostly responsible for making the GEDCOM the standard file format that can be read by most family tree software.

PAF/PAF5 - stands for "Personal Ancestral File"/"Personal Ancestral File 5" -- a free family tree building program, developed by LDS to allow people to build their own family trees/pedigrees. The number 5 stands for the version number of the program.

RIN - stands for "Record Identification Number".

RTL - stands for "Right To Left" meaning that the language is written Right To Left -- some languages are written LTR (Left To Right) -- there is an option when uploading your first/replacement GEDCOM that asks if you want it read RTL.

STI - A baby was born dead or "Stillborn".

SUB - The name has been "submitted" and cleared for LDS ordinances, but the ordinance work is not yet done.

UNC - An individual did not have enough information to qualify for ordinances. Means "Uncleared".

Unicode - a type of character set, used for when exporting GEDCOMs from your local software. NOTE: Select UTF8 or Unicode if the .paf file contains nonroman characters (such as Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Arabic, Hebrew, or Cyrillic). If you use a character in a .paf file that is not included in one of these standards, the character will not be copied into the GEDCOM file.

UTF8 - a type of character set, used for when exporting GEDCOMs from your local software. NOTE: Select UTF8 or Unicode if the .paf file contains nonroman characters (such as Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Arabic, Hebrew, or Cyrillic). If you use a character in a .paf file that is not included in one of these standards, the character will not be copied into the GEDCOM file.

===============================================

When adding Facts to an individual, there are a bunch of different abbreviations used. In general, most of the abbreviations are just a shortened version of the actual word. For example, If you wanted to add a birth to a family, you can add a new "Fact", and input the information as such: BIRT 1 Jan 2008. NOTE that the first word is short of the "H" at the end of "BIRTH". This is the way most of the words are abbreviated for Facts. Below is the list of Fact ABBReviations. Please note that some of them are empty, as I do not know what they stand for. I am currently working on getting them updated.

==========================================================

ABBR - means "Abbreviated/Abbreviation" ADDR - means "Address" ADOP - means "Adoption" AFN - means "Ancestral File Number" ANUL - means "Anulment" AUTH - means "Author/Authorized" BAPL - means "LDS Baptism" BAPM - means "Baptism" BARM - means "Bar Mitsvah" BASM - means "Bas Mitsvah" BLES - means "Blessing" BIRT - means "Birth" BURI - means "Burial" CAST - means "Caste/Social Status" CENS - means "Census" CHR - means "Christening" CHRA - means "Adult Christening" CONF - means "Confirmation" CONL - means "LDS Confirmation" CREM - means "Cremation" DEAT - means "Death" DIV - means "Divorce" DIVF - means "" DSCR - means "Description" EDUC - means "Education" EMAIL - means "Email Address" EMIG - means "Emigration" ENDL - means "LDS Endowment" ENGA - means "Engaged" FAX - means "Fax Number" FCOM - means "First Communion" GRAD - means "Graduated/Graduation" IDNO - means "Identification Number" IMMI - means "Immigration" MARB - means "" MARC - means "" MARL - means "" MARR - means "Marriage" MARR_CIVIL - means "Civil Marriage" MARR_PARTNERS - means "" MARR_RELIGIOUS - means "Marriage - Religious Ceremony" MARS - means "" _MILI - means "Military Service" MRIN - means "Marriage Record Identification Number" NAME - means "Name" NATI - means "Nationality" NATU - means "Naturalization" NCHI - means "Naturalized Child" NMR - means "Number" NOTE - means "Note" OBJE - means "Object" OCCU - means "Occupation" ORDN - means "Ordinance/Ordination" PHON - means "Phone Number" PROB - means "Probate" PROP - means "Property" PUBL - means "Public Record" RETI - means "Retirement" RELI - means "Religion" REPO - means "Repository" RESI - means "Residence" SLGC - means "LDS Sealing To Child" SSN - means "Social Security Number" TEXT - means "Text" TITL - means "Title" WILL - means "Will/Endowment" WWW - means "World Wide Web/URL"

===============================================
If this is the wrong place, sorry again, I am completely stupid with the whole Wiki System -- I more akin to IPB (Invision Power board), phpBB, phpNUKE and other forum software -- to me it is much more organized than the Wiki system -- then again, that's just me. And seeing as this is your main website, it seems to me that you would have your own forums -- other than the one over at source forge....something to think about.
