Multiple partners prioritised wrong.

It's a very small quibble but my sister is very upset that when she selects her name when entering the site it states she is espoused to her first partner who she never married. When a person has multiple partners the software needs to select the present, i.e. last, partner not the first.

Open the profile for the name of the person who has multiple partners and scroll down to the list of those partners. You simply change the number next to the name to place them in the proper order.

Thanks Rod, my problem was I thought the spouses had to be numbered in timeline order. First spouse number one etc. This was making the first husband appear on subsequent pages as the current spouse. Reversing the order fixed the problem. Sean

But even if you number them correctly, the correct sequence of marriages does not apply to descendant reports, which lists them in the order of date you entered the marriage record. This is a bug that I have been on about for years!
