Template talk:Familytree

The Template:Familytree on WP seems to be more advanced than ours - you can for example use different colours for the boxes. Would it be possibly to improve our template? Can we just copy the code from WP? --Morgan 17:52, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

You mean like this?
White box
Red box
Green box
Blue box
I've tried out some of the examples from that page and found that they work here in TG just fine. The question is what colours would we want to use? Would we want standard colours for different races, certain houses, etc.? Would we want to make the background grey for spouses marrying into a house? I like the idea of different colours or other means of distinction but unless there is some general agreement we could have "paintball wars" over tinting the trees. --Gamling 19:31, 11 Sept. 2011 (UTC)
Maybe a different colour to denote kingship? Larger ones with broken lines such as Aragorn's or Dain Ironfoot's could benefit from that. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 19:49, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
