Best way to find broken Citation links
Posted by: Newbie (ID *****8801) Date: October 02, 2010 at 08:33:21

Am helping out with an existing PAF file / project with hundreds of individuals, citations and sources. Citation images are scattered in *lots* of different folders. Can see that consolidation of images into a single media folder is preferred in order to share with family later and need to start this consolidation task.

Am looking for the best way to get it done. Any suggestions/tips appreciated. Would be nice to be able to generate a list of source image links so I know what needs to be touched without clicking on every single person and source to see where images live.

Using PAF and have tried the following Advanced Search Field Filters so far with no joy..
(1) Multimedia ....seems to be a different db field than source or citation images
(2) Source ... cannot find a way to reference source or citation images

The Tools, global search and replace action seems to only apply to multimedia links attached to the individual and not source or citation links.

Also, would appreciate tips on how best to manage source and citation links going forward. I tried adding words like "See image" in a source comment to enable a "contains" filter... but advanced filter does not seem to work real well for this scenario.

and my final newbie question... is there a any way to view database tables and create queries bypassing the GUI?
