This one is being made with a lot of groaning on my part but I tell myself I am lucky to be doing it now, when I only have 299 index entries to change. The change is the addition of a tally page, just beneath the index button, on the home page. The reason is that by putting the tally number next to the Pilgrim name, that made the URL for that page "blah blah blah number of pilgrims." If I found more descendants and upped the number, the URL became "blah blah blah larger number of pilgrims." That would mean going back and changing every single URL for all the descendants already indexed every time I increased the headcount. I was willing to redo all those links ONCE only. So, that is why the index button now says "under reconstruction" temporarily. The very first one was "Alden-Mullins," which had 83 names that needed different URLs because I had added a descendant. From now on, if you want to see how many descendants I have found for that pilgrim, click on the tally page (much easier to update.) One more thing: weebly is not very good about the updating process. About half the time I had to redo the URL 2 or 3 times to get it to "stick." No good reason, just a pain in the ****. You will be able to tell which name buttons I have updated by looking for a tally number. If there is no number, it means I redid all those links. So, for example, "Alden-Mullins" has been completely relinked. "Brewster (51)" has not. Within the index, if the Pilgrim name next to a person is not blue, that means there is no active link yet connecting him/her with the correct page because I would have to redo everyone else who linked to that Pilgrim.
