This wikipage is a cloned outline from a template. It is being roughed in.

Since you are reading this paragraph, then the WikiContributor has not progressed to the point of trimming out the excess template material. That means the wikipage is probably not ready for collaborative editing yet. Multiple people editing now might unintentionally overwrite their work. Please post your suggestion on the Discussion page instead of directly editing the content.

In various rules that allow a Person ID to be selected as a parameter value, both built-in rules & add-on rules use inconsistent placeholders:

  • <Id>
  • <id>
  • <person>

It would be better if they were harmonized.

I suspect any variant of <ID> would ambiguous because sometimes these rules (while needing a Person Gramps ID) are in different category custom rules.

What should the standard nomenclature be for the rule names, descriptions & documentation?

Using add-ons to design and test flight Filter Rule

Designing and optimizing a quality query is the core of frequently used add-on Filter Rule.

There are some power tool add-ons to help when designing queries, testing them and optimize their runtimes.

Particularly, using SuperTool, FilterParams, & the Query Gramplet add-ons in concert.
