I use the possibility to "Add an associate" on every event where godparents, priests, widnesses or else are mentioned in a document.
This helps a lot to find existing relations between different families in a town.

But I have difficulties to visualize these relationships/associations.

When I open the associated individual and check the box Events of close relatives sometimes it shows the relation sometimes it doesn't.

Many persons seem to be without relationship to the other existing people, but when I go to the event where I added the associate, I see the link to this individual.

Exemple :
for the birth of Marie Henriette Catois I added the godfather Maître Jean Baptiste François Marin Engerrand and the godmother.

But if I go to the godfather Maître Jean Baptiste François Marin Engerrand I don't see a relation.
When I go to the godmother Henriette Catois I see the birth of the girl.

There is a known bug, and is already fixed.

If there are two associates, only the first is shown.

Thank you.
Really rapid your answer. It seems that you have all existing bugs in your memory.
So what must I do to see other associations ?

Hmmm, if I'm not wrong then the proposed fix is not (yet) integrated into latest codebase (link)?!

Thank you. I didn't dare to say that I'm using the actual version of webtrees 1.7.9.

You are right. It is not yet fixed.

Perhaps my memory is not so good after all ;-)

Probably better than mine and certainly good enough for making such a marvellous piece of software. Thank you by the way.

Problem (not really) solved. I looked at the three marked lines (link) in the file but I didn't see any change to the file delivered in 1.7.9.
Simply replacing the version 1.7.9 of the file with the new one, doesn't work at all.
I suppose I have to wait for the next release.
