My aunt told me the address of her daughter (and family) which I used for the family tree. So, in the daughter's record I put her address and I also create a link to the source, my aunt.

0 @X405470@ SOUR
1 NAME @X131654@

X131654 is my aunt's record. The daughter's record webtrees shows me the link to the source. The source record shows me:
Name <name of my aunt>
which is clickable and brings me to the record of my aunt.

When I do a check for errors in the control panel I see:
SOUR X405470 has a NAME link to X131654. This type of link is not allowed here.

I am glad to see that it works well, but it's not compliant with the gedcom structure.

Who can tell me the right gedcom syntax for this 'problem'?

Best regards,
Guido

Use the AUTH or “SOURCE_ORIGINATOR” tag.

The person, agency, or entity who created the record.
For a published work, this could be the author, compiler, transcriber, abstractor, or editor.
For an unpublished source, this may be an individual, a government agency, church organization, or private organization, etc

If you want a link, make it from the aunt to the souce. The other way around is not allowed indeed. Just type her name, it won't change.
stamboom.BertKoor.nl runs on webtrees v1.7.13

Here are two examples from my database of someone telling me information.

In a "Interview" or verbal discussion, where someone <interviewer> interviewed a person <interviewee> on a specific date.

0 @S92@ SOUR
1 TITL Interview: <interviewee> by <interviewer> on May 6, 2001
1 AUTH <interviewee>
1 DATA
2 EVEN BIRT, DEAT, ADDR <= This would be the topics of the interview
2 DATE 6 MAY 2001
1 TEXT <TEXT_FROM_SOURCE>
1 REFN S2001.0506.0001



In a "Letter" or "email", where someone <letter writer> sent a person <letter receiver> a communication on a specific date.

0 @S92@ SOUR
1 TITL Letter: <letter writer> to <letter receiver> on May 6, 2001
1 AUTH <letter writer>
1 DATA
2 EVEN BIRT, DEAT, ADDR <= This would be the topics of the letter
2 DATE 6 MAY 2001
1 TEXT <TEXT_FROM_SOURCE>
1 REFN S2001.0506.0002
