Ireland county pages[edit source]

I've adjusted the Ireland portal page to point some of the county links to your new pages.

I know these pages are 'work in progress' but a few tips...

(1) To return from your Ireland county pages to the main Ireland portal you just need to give an internal link:

[[Ireland|Return to the Ireland portal]]

There is no need to give a full external link:

[ Return to Ireland Portal].

(which is generating the 'secure page' icon) as you are already in the FSWiki

(2) I think that the extra column in your tables is being created by an extra unnecessary "Enter" being pressed at the end of the final row?

(3) Some redundant coding is also being inserted at the top of some of the pages?

&nbsp;[[Image:County Wexford.jpg|thumb|left|Click on map to enlarge it.]].<br>

and I suspect they are coming from using "copy & paste" somewhere along the line??bromaelor

Need to contact Kjaffa[edit source]

Please also accept my commitment that the FamilySearch team will learn from this experience and do all that we can to prevent situations like this in the future.
