If you are going to develop something like this, it would be helpful to provide for email groups as well. Especially if the site gets very large, it may be useful to create family groups you can send content to.
Why don't you have a https website that is secure and has padlock showing that transactions on the site are secure? When we post Family information on our Sites, for living people, that is considered private and sensitive information but if your site is not a "securie" site, then how can we protect private, sensitive information--such as the profiles of site members?
The reason for MyHeritage.com not being a https and secure site on all pages is to allow users to share information with each other, find their relatives and research their family. All pages regarding payment in our site have https and are completely secure.
However, you do have the option to choose the privacy options for your own site and make it completely private.
The https protocol has nothing to do with sharing information with each other and doing research. It's use would be to encrypt (and protect) information transmitted between my PC and the MyHeritage servers. Https would prevent sharing information with a hacker that can capture information transmitted over the internet. The functionality of the MyHeritage website should not be affected in the least by using https. Protecting our information using https is important since it contains birth dates and maiden names, which are often used to verify identity, and can be used for identity theft in the wrong hands. MyHeritage has a responsibility to protect our family information and prevent identity theft by using https. Please use https and make MyHeritage a secure website!
Når jeg modtager en mail om nye smart matches og jeg trykker på sammenlign matches viser mit eget slægtstræ meget ofte "ukendt" eller "-------" eller forkert efternavn på personer der er skrevet ind i "træet". Hvorfor det??
The language of choice I have chosen is English for both data and display. French is the Secondary language. Unknown is the name that idenfies most persons in my tree. How do I fix this? Thanks. Claire.
Can anyone tell me what I've done wrong? I have exported some family trees to my site, but only one has appeared on the site with the photos - I thought I did them all the same way, following instructions on the site, but when I go to the Manage Trees page - it says that the source of the tree which is correct ie has the photos there is FTB, whereas the source of the other ones is GEDCOM. Where did I go wrong?
This is really annoying, I never expected this :( I thought myheritage.com could handle everything, or at least some priorities like this. But I suppose it's a very young website, perhaps in a few months you couldn't think of everything...
So you are telling me that now I will have to manually make myself a chart with those correct generational levels ? Or maybe I'll find another more experimented site that could do this? Please help, could I find somewhere such a website ?
If you create a "Close Family" chart, and select in the 3ed step (the "Customize the Chart" step), in Generations to "Show All generations", it will show your siblings and all your direct ancestors - each generation in a separate level.
If you want to create a chart with all the people in your family project it can be done with the "All in One" chart.
You did not understand me. I needed an all-in-one chart that respects the levels of each generation. My heritage.com does NOT have something like this ! Can it be done ?
There are already available some rather useless charts like "bowtie" or "fan chart", but NO all-in-one chart with people from the same generation displayed at the same level - which could be MORE usefull than those charts !
Please, can you tell me how much time is needed for this better (and sooo needed !) version of All-in-one chart, to be created by your team ???
