DATE BET APR AND JUN 1884 = EST 1884? 6 years 1 month ago #1

Hi, not sure if this is a bug or with how I am doing things, but if I enter:
1 BIRT
2 DATE BET APR AND JUN 1884

It's because I know the person was born between those dates, but on the Individuals page no date shows up near the name at the top, and in search results &c. this shows up as "Estimated 1884" if i wanted it to say that i would put EST 1884.

don't mind forgetting the dates and just showing 1884 but the main problem comes with attempting to sort by estimated dates in reports &c. where it does say the dates between but, It mixes the dates up and I end up jumping about in the data eg.:
Date: estimated 1885
Date: between April and June 1887
Date: between April and June 1884

Has anyone else been able to resolve this issue, more of a niggle than a problem, but still I'd rather my dates in order.

It should be BET APR 1884 AND JUN 1884

Also, if you just type "q2 1884" webtrees will convert it to the full correct format for you.

A gregorian date must be entered in one of three forms:

<DATE> = <YEAR_GREG>[B.C.] -or- <MONTH> <YEAR_GREG> -or- <DAY> <MONTH> <YEAR_GREG>


BET <DATE> AND <DATE>
