It looks like most/all of the sources copied from FamilySearch and some Census records etc etc have been created with a WebTag on EACH source, and that is good.
Who knew? And that's the point.
I have looked at thousands of people all with many sources attached to events and there was NOTHING that indicated to me that these WebTags were there.
Here's a workflow:
- find a person of interest and open their Edit Person screen
- there are no WebTags at the top for this person
- see that they have a Census record from 1930 and it has a source and it would be helpful to know who else is on that Census record
- open up the Source box and there's just that one source
- you can see the source name and also the free form text in the footnote, the short footnote and the bibliography
- in the footnote text you can see that there is a URL embedded there so copy and paste it in to the browser to get the details.
At no time did it indicate that there was a WebTag associated with that source.
If I were to Edit the source - which is not a reasonable thing to do when you're just reviewing the source - I still don't see any indication.
Then I select the MasterText tab and I see there is a WebTag.
Click on the WebTag button and I see the one WebTag - I can read the name, but the URL is longer than the dialog box allows so I can't really do much with it.
So now I click Edit again and I can see the whole URL, but even then it is not clickable so all I can do is copy/paste it into my Browser.
See how all this doesn't help one SEE that there is a URL, or DO anything useful with the URL?
And to go back to my 2nd request on this item - I still can't find anything that helps me find any broken links in my HUGE data table of WebTags.
