I created me tree originally in thick client version of Family Tree Builder. When I published it to the web, I would like to be able to edit it there also, or have others collaborate on info as I dont have it all. Is there a way I can edit information on a person's card if the original tree was made in the FTB? Thanks!
You should export GEDCOM file from the Family Tree Builder and import it on the website, then you'll be able to edit it on the website. That was the only way, I don't think anything have changed since then.
I tried exporting the GEDCOM from FTB and importing to the site, but I still see no way to edit. Should I delete what's on the site first? - No, I think you shouldn't delete everything on the site. It should work without that. I hope some of the Support experts will help you.
If you get this to work, other members should be able to edit / add family members, that's how it works in my family tree.
Katya ... thanks for your response. It looks like perhaps we both are correct!
I discovered that when I import the GEDCOM, I actually get an extra (editable) family tree on my site, just as promised. (I can see a list of trees if I click on "Manage Trees.) However, I must choose to view that particular tree. If I am still viewing the original one, it remains non-editable.
I went back and deleted the original, and tested it using another member's account, and it appears she can edit also !! This is great.
So you are correct - I do not have to delete my tree first. However, by deleting my original tree after I import the GEDCOM, I am assured that all users see and use (and edit) the same version of the tree.
I'm doind a project and I need a copy of my family tree on 1 piece of paper. When I try to print my family tree the printer says it needs to print 12 sheets of paper. Is there anything I can do to tell it to print the whole project on 1 piece of paper?
I am truly sorry for your deep dissatisfaction with the listing of Taiwan in the country listing. We do not indorse a political stance with the situation of Taiwan and China, but please keep in mind that others use this site and that the proper noun ‘Taiwan’ is a valid option for a place of residence. This is why we have it offered in our list.
I was trying to send a message while in the members section to an individual, as I said at the time I had been working on photographs and tagging quite a few people, so if it sends a message after every tag that would account for it, like it does with face book "you been tagged by XXXXXX" etc.
It seems to have cleared today as I was able to send messages this morning. but yesterday I hadnt done anything on the site and it said I had used my quota.
no its not possible for someone else to use my account at home.
Hi could I ask, is there a limit on messages which are sent?
I have not been sending out messages but have been working on the site and tagging people, inviting people.
I come from a family of 10 and I have lots of living relations I am up to 33 invited up to today and I have just gone to send a message and it says again I have reached my limit and also puts a code thingy -
"To protect our users from spam, please enter the code below."
When I try to put in the code it dosnt do anything, I take it that the code allows you to message as it is not spam.
But the original question is, Is there a limit and what is it?
