Keep in mind - if you edit your tree in Family Tree Builder you won't be able to click on the facts to edit them when viewing your family tree online. You'll need to open your tree in Family Tree Builder, make the changes there and republish your tree.
Thank you Jael. Well then my pb is that i changed pc disk and was not able to find my FTB file in my disck anymore!!!
Disaster? I tried to export the tree from net site to my disk and got a FTB file but no photos in it. So if now I make changes and republished it I will loose all the photos in the tree published, true?
Can I export it againbut now with all the photos? that would solve the problem I think.
There is a function that lets you restore the tree including photos from your family site, however, it only works if your tree is published to one family site. Your family tree is currently published to more than one family site so you won't be able to take advantage of the restore function. I'm sorry.
I recommend searching your computer for ZED files. This is the unique file extension of Family Tree Builder family tree projects. You might be able to find your family tree intact with photos on your hard disk this way.
If that doesn't work, then you will have to add the photos again manually.
Thanks. Does that mean if I ask you to delete one of the trees site and only keep one tree published I would be albe to export it with photos to the FTB with my basic subscription? Or must I upgrade to Premium to be able to do it?
Yes, if you wanted to delete one of the sites (or you can just delete the tree from that site) it would allow you to use the restore function to download the tree into FTB complete with photos. This is a free feature, no need to be Premium.
The ID numbers for people in your tree in Family Tree Builder, are internal to the programming of the tree, and are not editable.
Please note: you may notice more ID numbers than people in the tree. The reason for this is ID numbers are not re-used when people are deleted. Therefore, ID numbers can exceed the actual number of individuals in the tree.
In order to change the home person in the website, please go to Settings > Home Page > Other.
In the lower part of the window, you can pick a specific person to be the home person (starting point).
If you want to change it in the FTB program, right click on your genealogy card, Person > Set as home person.
After almost 40 years, my long lost brother and I have finally found each other. We have just joined Heritage to create our family tree to share not only with future generations, but with the rest of the family.
I've not used this program before, and while I've looked through the FAQ, this doesn't seem to be addressed anywhere. Is there any way for several people to edit the info on the family tree? I've looked all over trying to find a way to edit details but can't seem to find anything that looks like I'd be able to add/change information. It seems that it would be a lot of work for the one person to take on (knowing how big our family is). So can multiple Editors exist in this program? Is it maybe something only available to Premium Users, as we're currently using the free program.
All help would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks so much!
When you work on your tree in Family Tree Builder and publish your tree from Family Tree Builder instead of creating it on your family site, this prevents anyone (including yourself) from editing your tree online. In order to update your tree, you will then have to re-publish from your family site, and your tree will be replaced with the newly published one. This method only allows for one editor of the tree.
Alternately, you can create your tree on your family site. This allows for your site members to collaborate and add to your tree.
If you have already created a tree in Family Tree Builder, and wish to convert it to one that is editable online by you and your members, please see the following post in our FAQ:
I think, directly is it not possible, because not allowed edit html source of articles. Try save it to picture/document storage and to activities insert link, or at the worst pick it anywhere on internet and again insert only link. (Its only idea, I do not know if is it functionaly, i am not experienced with flash)
I have a problem I can not access my tree because Im suposed to have over 250 people in my tree I dont know how its happend but the trees are a copy of each other so how can I deleat one of them Thanks for reading I just hope someone can help me with this problem regards June
Let us see what the OP says, but it seems to me she has a single tree that contains (presumably unintentionally ) a duplicate and she has been locked out because it exceeds the size of the free online tree.
I thought she wanted to get in to delete the duplicate entries.
"...the trees are a copy of each other so how can I deleat one of them."
She wrote TREES not TREE, and want delete ONE OF THEM. I understand, that she has now two identical trees. Maybe, second published from FTB under a little different name? I do not know, but cannot see into her strictly closed website, how many trees she has. If I misundersood, so very sorry.
At this situation we must break this thread and wait to MyHeritage support intervention. Thank you DAS for consulting and replying.
