The Edit Source: "Detail text" - Web Tag not showing up when viewing Source in "FamilySearch Person Tools" "Sources" tab citation.

 

Not sure if it should, but Detail text WebTag does show up when viewing source in FS Person Tools.  Nor are any Web URLs entered in the Citation (Master or source detail field). The only "Source" Web Tag that "works" is the Master text Web Tag.

We are only displaying what will actually be sent to FamilySearch when adding one of your sources. That is why you don't see certain fields being displayed. It would give a false expectation.

 

The areas included are:

Everything on the Citation tab

Source Text and WebTag areas on the Master Text tab

 

There is a limitation on the source fields we can send to FamilySearch. Since these are the fields we receive from them, we made a decision to use those fields for sending.  In the future if these fields are not expanded by FamilySearch, we would like to give our users options on what is sent.
