New main menu item “Resources”
For years now the “Reports” available in kiwitrees (and it’s successors) have been one of it’s weakest points. A group of under performing, and, if I’m honest, not very attractive pages.
But, at last, this new “Resources” menu group is the start of replacing those report pages. The name may well be temporary though. I just needed omething where as each report is re-written it can be placed separate from the old reports. There were also a couple of other pages that needed a new or better home. So, in this release, there are two replaced reports (Changes and Individual report), two new reports (a full page Research Tasks listing, and a UK 1939 Register Check) and the existing UK Census Check page previously put under Lists.
The design principles behind new reports are:
• Remove internal code dependence for creating pdf files
• Eliminate the use of the XML coding used in all the old reports
• Re-design the display for on-screen use and to use the same for printing
• Improve and re-think the configuration options for each report
