Chinese name: surname + generation (ranking in surname) + name, a total of three words, not more than four. It is easy to confuse users when building a new person with a married name. How to annotate the married name? Where is the code? Thank you. )

Haha, the names of Chinese people are very complicated:
surname+generation+name+Word (respect of respect)+nickname(pretty name)

When you add new indivduals (spouses, parents, etc.), webtrees will create a (default) married name automatically.
You can edit/delete this married name.
It is provided only for convenience.

webtrees has different surname rules for different cultures.

You can select a rule in the control panel.

Chinese does not use married-names.

Control panel -> Family trees -> Preferences -> Surname traditon = none.

OK, the marriage name has been deleted.
In addition, how to delete the name prefix suffix? Chinese do not use it.
Thank you, greg

What about military ranks, and education qualifications? I have seen those used with Chinese names.

軍隊和教育資格怎麼樣? 我見過那些用中文名字的。

Because the Chinese have many names, I attempt to label the names according to the type indicated within the written genealogy records. For example, there are names labeled Zi (字), hao (號), hui (諱), among others. The GEDCOM 5.5.1 standards allow these types as free text. @fisharebest shared with me how to adjust the array in webtrees 1.7.x so these appear as choices on the dropdown. See: www.webtrees.net/index.php/en/forum/help...-4-6/28226-name-type

A more frequent example is that married women have the character 氏 after their birth surname. I therefore place the character 氏 as a suffix. The display leave an additional space after the surname, but IMO that is a minor problem.

For titles of respect in the male ancestors, I add those also as name suffixes. You can view an example here: joeclan.duckdns.org/individual.php?pid=I...5845&ged=joeclan.ged

@nuxiong, what are you proposing to handle these Chinese extraneous titles and names?

我使用中文回复,英文无法翻译和理解意思。
下面是我使用webtree的经验;
1)男姓氏(前台展示个人)使用的“辈”,比如王姓中有50个字辈,前台点击相应的辈就可以快速找到个人。女姓氏因为没有名使用的英文A-Z字母,如张氏,在添加姓氏使用的Z。
2)昵称作为“字”,也曾使用名作为“号”。
3)乳名/小名等介绍就在名字后面“手工”加一个『』,第几代介绍使用「」
4)添加个人时,手工添加名字,不是生成的(点击那支笔的图标)。例如:张/三丰『小名张疯子』「张氏第二十氏」
5)结婚后的妻子手工添加名字为:三丰妻/王氏,姓氏填写W,前台个人列表点击W,显示为三丰妻王氏。
6)添加个人时,名,这里写全名如:张三丰

1. Currently in webtrees 2.0, the last name prefix and name prefix order are wrong, I discussed it with fisharebest.
github.com/fisharebest/webtrees/issues/2281
But it has not changed yet.
In order to avoid errors, my solution is to modify the template and change the order in which the fields are displayed.



2.If you want to use "generation", I recommend using shared notes. Can meet your requirements. I have not used it.

3.Nicknames can be used as "字" or "号".

First of all, you have to know.
The general search and the way you search in the chart are different.

In a general search, don't enter surname, otherwise you won't be able to search.
If you want to search for the full name (surename and givnname), search within the chart.

github.com/fisharebest/webtrees/issues/2411

I have previously suggested to fisharebest to unify search input methods and reduce user learning costs.
However, he has no feedback yet.
