==Using mediawiki subpages==
The wiki currently uses them mostly for language translations, but as soon as I can get a full half day I'll be upgrading mediawiki and installing the [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_Language_Extension_Bundle MediaWiki_Language_Extension_Bundle] and a few other goodies. Feel free to use subpages as you need, but don't use too many sublevels due language translation and user experience. Thanks [[User:Sam888|Sam888]] ([[User talk:Sam888|talk]]) 03:32, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
:: Ok will do, Thanks for looking after the wiki etc .. looking forward to the upgrade. [[User:Gioto|Gioto]] ([[User talk:Gioto|talk]]) 21:50, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
==Begging for Help buttons and Help Links in General!==
>> ''why do users even have to beg for a help button(s) , moving to issues section!)''
Mainly because the Gramps project has been around for a long time (big ball of string comes to mind) and with volunteers they do what interest them only. Apart from that I can say that it looks to have been slowly improving with each release see the following issues [https://gramps-project.org/bugs/view.php?id=8888 8888], [https://gramps-project.org/bugs/view.php?id=9042 9042], [https://gramps-project.org/bugs/view.php?id=10919 10919] the last one which has been closed (possibly accidentally as not all of it has been done!) and the associated issues. See https://gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=GEPS_034:_Improve_usability#Improve_Help_and_Documentations_in_Gramps also.

:: Understood and thanks for the link, just a little frustrated, so much outdated stuff here! I'll keep chipping away at it at least from the wiki side. [[User:Gioto|Gioto]] ([[User talk:Gioto|talk]]) 02:09, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
I am awaiting for my PR for SyncAssociation OK dialog [https://github.com/gramps-project/addons-source/pull/461 #461] be accepted by [[User:NickHall|NickHall]] and then I will do the PR for the updated DNA gramplet.
The DNA update is a significant rewrite so I put the doc changes in my personal page rather than publish it. I dont know how to update my git with these DNA gramplet changes without conflicting with the submitted (not merged) SyncAssociation PR (this is the reason I canceled the previous PR as it included both SyncAssociation and DNA changes). I think you can access my new version at [https://github.com/GaryGriffin/addons-source/tree/DNA-gramplet-overhaul DNA]. Feedback is encouraged from you or [[User:Matt]] or anyone else before I push it for review.
The input (Association name of DNA and format of segment data in Notes) was defined by [[User:NickHall|NickHall]] in the initial experimental version and I am not changing this.

:[[User:GaryGriffin|GaryGriffin]]: Thank you for sharing. Testing seems to work fine. Some notes and ideas:
:# The loading speed might become a problem. For 8 associations it already takes ~3 seconds to load.
:# Overlapping segments are hidden below others and currently unaccessible. A way to draw overlapping segments in seperate rows might be an interesting feature in future.
