Re: Links on FH6-generated website

I asked about which field, because not all are necessarily included in Reports . For example the Note field can be optionally excluded and the Website field is never included, but the Attribute values are always included. Is the URL actually an active hyperlink on your website? i.e. you ran the Plug...

Re: Recording Military Facts

Welcome to the FHUG.

Yes, FH V6 added many new features in the Sentence Template expressions and <br> and <para> codes are just two of them, so maybe it is time to upgrade, but beware that FH V7 is not too far away.

Re: Problem with code snippet

You are correct, the snippet is flawed, because its repeat loops never terminate if there is an error.
So it needs 'improving' further to explain that, or include an error message escape from the loop, perhaps when the dest:items().count stops increasing?
Maybe Jane can give us her thoughts?

Re: FH Version 7

You are asking the wrong people. You need to ask Calico Pie.

My guess is that FH V7 will run on Windows Vista and later versions of Windows such as 7 and 8.1 and 10.
Windows XP was abandoned probably because its 'architecture' was significantly different.
