  • The overall width is adjusted for larger resolutions, as suggested here
  • Currently, mainly the individual page is adjusted further:
    • Smaller sidebar
    • Less padding between elements
    • The key-value pairs of the name parts are inline
    • Gender information is moved to the header (as an icon)
    • Media edit controls is moved to the edit menu (a better place for these edit controls may be the Media tab itself)
  • Note that this module itself is not a theme: The webtrees user will not be able to switch between the compact and the regular layout!
default 'webtrees' theme adjusted 'webtrees' theme
