Hello. My tree- like everyones- has I.D numbers for each individual. I1, I12, I521 whatever
So when you pull up an individual's Page. This is I22. Appart from the I.D number appearing in the address bar. Is there a more Visible view of such I.D Number?

Sure??? Avoid storing numbers in a name for the sake of it if you can. These numbers don't really serve any purpose.

You did not say what release of webtrees you are using but their is a module that supports adding XREF values to the display screen. Look up the module in the “Add-ons” page.

As Bert questioned, I would not use name fields for data that is not a name value.

Version 1.7.12 is rather old not not supported. I’m not sure if the module was written for 1.7.xx

I am using the Kekule or Sosa numbering system, e. g.
1 REFN Kekule 1234
for those individuals that are my direct ancestors.

GEDCOM 5.5.1 says about REFN: "A user-defined number or text that the submitter uses to identify this record. For instance, it may be a record number within the submitter's automated or manual system, or it may be a page and position number on a pedigree chart." So you could use this REFN tag for any numbering system.

I use the REFN number as well, every individual in my database is given an accession number when they are entered into webtrees.

I've made this accession number automatic by changing the PHP code.

I started with PHPGedview and still find it very efficient to work with ID numbers rather than names in certain sitituations. So I have a lot of persons without birthdates in the first generations of my ancestry. In addition every second male seemes to be named Johann (John) in the 17. century. Such individuals can be best distinguished by adding an ID-number to the name.
For internal administrative use I regard the ID-number extremely useful. When you for example are deleting ore merging duplicates this can be done by ID-numbers more efficiently and much safer than by names.
Also a complex chart with lots of "Johann" is easyer understood or explained, when an ID-number is added to each name.
I agree that the ID-number should be kept separate from data absolutely linked to a person, but I regret that it gets hidden so much in webtrees.

A new feature (added 30 minutes ago) provides a "edit / share" menu on the individual pages. You must be logged in to see it.

It is on the demo-dev site right now.

This allows you to copy the URL to the clipboard. The URL contains the XREF. So, you could double click the XREF to select it, and press CTRL-C to copy it...
