We have one large 31,060 member site that I uploaded a gedcom file to and it is really running great on your system.
I am trying to find a way to get changes made on web site back to my genealogy program we are using legacy and FTM from Ancestry.com.
I have been downloading the file which has several added photo fields added to the gedcom, which I have taken out by importing it as gedcom and ignoring those headers or fields. It takes my machine 12.5 hrs to merge these files together. Is there anyway that we can get only changes made to file from log's or some kind of change report changed gedcom file would be great.
The other problem I have is how to get the merged and changed by using working on our machine changes file back on the server or site so I don't loose the photo links. I thought importing to a new file name but then I loose the photo links. I tried using your windows program but when I publish it then our family can not edit and make changes to our site.
I can't find a software package that will compare files and only give me changes to our online or offline gedcom. (we are making changes on our FTM because there is no full page edit screen takes to much effort to edit / add a new person with all their information. To many screens to edit to get all dates etc added in. Maybe a suggestion would be to do a one page entry or edit screen.
If site was not 31,000 names it would be easier. Any suggestions how to handle this would be greatly appreciated.
On one of your gedcom downloads it only comes into browser and is not a download is there a reason for this? I think it is the one it emails us when it is ready.
OK, I've got that part down pat, except when I edit in FTB and upload, the pictures disappear. Same thing when I download from the web to FTB. With the number of pictures that I have, I don't want to upload, re-tag and select personal photos every time I make a change.
I hope this is because of something I am doing wrong.
As you mentioned here, Gedcom files do not replace previously uploaded Gedcom files. There is also no option to upload a Gedcom file of only updates made to the tree.
Alternatively, each time that you publish a family tree to your family site from Family Tree Builder, if you leave the name of the project the same, then the publishing will replace the previously published version of the project. It does this by publishing only the updates to the tree, so this will take much less time then uploading your Gedcom file each time you make changes to your tree.
The drawback of using this method is that when you create a family tree in Family Tree Builder and publish it to your family site, you CANNOT edit the tree online.
If you built your tree in Family Tree Builder, each time you would like to make changes to your tree online, edit your tree in Family Tree Builder and then re-publish your family tree to your family site. This will update the previously published tree (with the same name) on your site.
You can do this, and publish your tree to your family site, and at the same time, export a Gedcom from Family Tree Builder to use in your other program.
To summarize, I think that you will have to decide whether it is more important for you to have a version of your tree that is editable online, or one that uploads changes quickly.
We are working on a version of Family Tree Builder where the trees will be editable online for the future!
In the last several days when using the web interface I've been getting communications errors about half the time. VERY frustrating! Since they happen on stacked changes I end up having to re-enter the data multiple times. The "updating" spinner keeps turning till it times out, I guess... a server response issue? I've restarted the browser, etc and it keeps happening. Thought you would want to know.
Gotta say, it was bad enough I have to push myself to enter more data. Such failures are really fatal - if it happened more than a few more times I'd leave. Aside from that problem, I am loving your service... I hope it was just a passing issue!
4-5 days ago, wanted to import images from Picasa. Noted several albums for the import and pressed the button to copy.
It's been 4-5 days, but figures have not yet appeared in MyHeritage.When re-entering, the import from Picasa, displays the message:
Sorry, there is already an import from Picasa in progress, please try again in a few minutes.
4-5 дней назад хотел импортировать рисунки с Picasa. Отметил несколько альбомов для импорта и нажал кнопку скопировать. Прошли уже 4-5 дней, но рисунки до сих пор не появились в MyHeritage. При заходе заново, на импорт из Picasa, выдает сообщение:
Извините, уже осуществляется процесс импорта из Picasa, пожалуйста, попробуйте еще раз через несколько минут.
Решил написать здесь, так как думаю что она сама не восстановится, без вмешательство администраторов.
Will MyHeritage support Linux software in the future?
Reason I'm asking is that I at home only uses Ubuntu and not M$ Windows. And in the research section you state that it only supports IE and not Firefox. I always use Firefox also on my Windows work computer.
More and more people I know, is going over to use Ubuntu instead of Windows.
Great suggestion, in fact one of the reasons why I probably won't renew is that my personal pc will now run Linux. May be worth looking into who would be interested in a non-microsoft version, as there's more and more users to switch - and plenty talented developpers out there able to create a Linux version for you.
