From Historical Hastings

Four or more generations of descendants of Showfacts descendants if they are properly linked:


Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]
Description
{{showfacts descendants}} shows a numbered list of children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren, with links to each of them and to the corresponding (/descendants) subpage of the great-great-grandchildren.
Syntax
{{showfacts descendants|header=text}}
header is optional text which appears before the tree
Usage
{{showfacts descendants}} must be placed on BASEPAGENAME/descendants, which is one of the standard subpages creatable from buttons on "Edit with form" or the /sensor subpage. The /sensor subpage need not be created before that subpage is created; it must then be republished before the tab for this template will display on it. The tab will appear on the main article when that article is next published.
How it works
(Experts can fill this in.)
Other notes
Our current active expert said we could not add another generation within the software's template limits. Then in mid-June 2010 another generation was added. Then a few months later it was cut back again.
If links are using redirects, they may not all show here or on tree pages; if you rename a person article, you should edit all person-page property parameters that were linking to it.
