      Hi all,
      I want to add GMT Timezone info in the BIRT fact regarding to the PLAC of birth, exactly like you can add a Temple (TEMP) while adding a new “SDJ: confirmation event” (CONL) for ex

      For that, I have looked (and duplicated) the TEMP

        In function_edit.php page, i’ve added a line :

      echo select_edit_control($element_name, KT_Gedcom_Code_Gmt::GMTFuseauxNames(), KT_I18N::translate(‘Fuseau Horaire’), $value);

        In \library\KT\Gedcom\Code I’ve created a Gmt.php page with functions and arrays (from Temp.php) duplicated.

      It’s a dropdown menu with some data like +1 / +2 / +3 ….

      It works well (my data are shown in the select) if I call KT_Gedcom_Code_Gmt::GMTFuseauxNames() instead of KT_Gedcom_Code_Temp::templeNames() in the function_edit.php page for example

      But how can I add a complete line when a BIRT event is added (or updated) displaying my KT_Gedcom_Code_Gmt::GMTFuseauxNames() function below the “birth place” area field ?

      I can’t find the loop that displays the infos in order to call my “function” inside the

      I think it should be simple, but …. not form me !
      Thanks if you can help !

      There is possibly a lot to add. But the loop you are looking for is the code in functions_edit.php following this comment (about line 2436)

      	// List of tags we would expect at the next level
      	// NB insert_missing_subtags() already takes care of the simple cases
      	// where a level 1 tag is missing a level 2 tag.  Here we only need to
      	// handle the more complicated cases.

      Further down (about line 2528) you will see a reference to KT_Gedcom_Code_Temp::isTagLDS($level1type). You will need similar code for your changes.

      But you will also need to make additions to the file /includes/config_data.php

      (Note – I can’t test what you are doing so can not say if this is everything. You may well need much more. The following tip should help though.)

      Use a quality text editor that has the ability to search globally, through the entire kiwitrees code. Then you can take a function like “isTagLDS”, or a specific tag like “SLDC” and find all it’s use locations quickly and easily. Then you know what you need to do for your new code. I recommend either “atom” ( or “sublime” ( I use both.

      I probably do not need to remind you of this, but just in case:
      Remember that all changes to the core code will need to be done over again after every kiwitrees upgrade, as that will over-write the standard files. That means repeating your changes somewhere between 5 and 8 times each year.
