Sort Children By Birth Order


It would be great if families could be sorted by birth order when all children in the family have a birth date. If it used the order of the children in the family records that would work well because I could write a utility to reorder the children in that record since FTM doesn't appear to obey the order set in the application.

Regardless if input GEDCOM file has been privatized or not, I vote YES for sorting children before UncleGED applies the privatize option. Furthermore if the birth date is blank, then use the baptized or christening date. This ranks high to my needs. But thanks for all the efforts todate.

Any developer feedback is appreciated. I thinks is high priority!

Additional comments from forum user:
Sort Children by Birth Order (children div) before applying privatize option, if birthdate blank, then use Baptized/Christened Date, and if still blank, then it sorts to top.

If Birth Order remains unsorted, then the children should not be numbered, but simply bulleted.

Using Legacy 7.0 and creating GedCOM files in GedCOM 5.5 (or "basic" or PAF or any other GEDCOM format I can export to using this program), Uncle GED seems to ignore the order of the Children as they appear in my Legacy program AND also ignores the order in which the children were originally entered into the database AND also WILL NOT reorder the children in their birth order. Children are placed in seemingly RANDOM order. I haven't had this problem with any other HTML creating program, but I would like to use UncleGED. I am currently using UncleGED version and the packaged CSS sheet called UGED.css (but the same result with the other posed CSS sheets).

Please sort children by birth order or at least give the option to. So far I like this program better than the others I've tried, but this issue is a deal-breaker.
