No, it is still not possible to edit Family Tree Builder trees online, however we do offer the option to convert these trees into Web trees that can be edited online (this means that the tree will no longer be edited in the program, only in the site). If you would like us to do so for you, please write to us or answer this post.
You now have the option of site members and site managers for WEB trees and FTB trees. You can edit these settings online under the tab Family Tree > Manage Trees > Edit tree settings.
Please note, that the newchange now enables you to let even several site managers edit FTB trees (family trees created with Family Tree Builder FTB 7.0 ), which is a big improvement. Up to now this was only able for WEB trees (trees created online).
In your case I can see you are still working with FTB 6.
I would recommend to install the newest version FTB 7 using this download link:
I am not sure I understand the question. I would appreciate if you could elaborate more on what program you are referring to and what home page you want it to open. Are you referring to your family site home page?
I assume you are referring to the tree you created using the Family Tree Builder software.
In order to change the tree language, open the software and then open the 'tools' menu. From the menu, chose the 'languages' entry. Then, select a different language under the 'Primary Data Language' section and click 'OK' on both dialogs
I have the same problem. Our site was started by a cousin in Germany, and thought I have the button on the bottom right hand corner of the site set to English, many items are still in German. Most annoying to me is that when I generate family trees or family books, they are in German (which is useless to me- I can't read German!!)
If you find out how to change the language, I'd love to know.
There is currently a limitation in the family book and chart generation process, which allows setting just one language for both the content and the 'story' that surrounds it. Since the tree was started in German, we used this language for the story as well.
As I understood, the current version of WEB application allows to display names and all other personal data in one language (although recorded in two languages in FTB). When do you prepare version with possibility of switching primary and secondary languages?
If your tree has data in more than one language in Family Tree Builder (at least 85% filled in each language), then you will be able to see the data in each of those languages on your family site. All that you will have to do is to change the site language to that data entry language.
