Fancy Treeview

Fancy Treeview module for webtrees.

This module requires webtrees 1.7.0 or later. Download the latest stable release of this module here. The development version (master branch) only works with webtrees 1.8.0-dev.


With this module it is possible to add multiple pages for several branches in your family tree. The branches will be listed from the first generation down to the last one in a narrative way. It gives your users a quick overview of your family tree. Of course privacy rules are respected.

On the Fancy Treeview configuration page you have some options. To start using the module enter a surname in the text field. The script will automatically search for the oldest person with this surname. It is also possible to manually enter the ID of the person you want to set as root person. After adding the root person you can set several other options. You can enter as much surnames as you like. There will be a menu-link and page created for each surname.

The package comes with a language file to translate the module into your own language. At the moment the module is already translated into 14 different languages. The module supports rtl-languages.

Stylesheets for all the core webtrees themes, the JustBlack and the JustLight theme and the Rural theme are added to the module package as well.

Fancy Treeview PDF

Longtime users of Fancy Treeview are used to have the PDF-option inside the module by enabling it at the configuration page. This is changed now. From now on the Fancy Treeview PDF-option is offered as a separate download. Goto for more information.


You can help to translate this module. Updates to translations should be made at Changes made there will be pushed to the git repository periodically and will be available on the development version of the module. They will be included in the next release of this module.
