Before I publish my family tree , I would like to confirm the following :
a) The public or guests can only see people names and accompanying notes in my family tree who are deemed dead but everyone else on the tree will be shown with only surname. Is there a cut off year I can use as default like say 1930 ?
Correct, deceased individuals full information is shown, only surnames of living individuals are shown. There is no cut off date available.
b) Members that I invite will be able to see the complete tree including first names , last names and any other notes that I have included in the Family Tree Builder software ?
Correct. As long as you publish the tree to your family site, invited members can visit your site and view the full tree including living and deceased individuals, notes, photos, etc.
c) If I make the family Tree totally Private , then nothing will be seen by guests . Only members I invite will be able to see the complete Tree?
Correct. You can also choose to display certain sections of the site only, say only show the family tree, but not photos. This can be done in the My Privacy section.
d) Is the password the same for every member I invite? Is that the same as my password as originator ?
Each member is prompted to create his or her own password the first time they log into your site.
e) How do I link the Family tree to my webpage ie what URL should I use?
In Site Settings in the General section, you can find the URL of your family site. You can also change it here if you want to customize it.
For the first time I try to put place of birth of my ancestor in the new skin, and the bug came out.
I am using Google chrome last version.
This person was living, and I want to set his place of death or birth, and there is bug.
After clicking on someone in tree, pop window, in left bottom corner click on pencil icon.
If I put something in inputbox of birth/death place with CTRL C, it makes a list of recent places or what, and I am not able close down this list, even I had everything writen as I want in this field. Picture attached (orange color is problem)I have to click to something from the list to close it down. So everything I wrote is gone.
Why is not possible to turn on and off left panel, like it was in old skin. What is the problem? Now is everything on minimum 6 click nonsense.
I want to see info about person with family tree together, not to do 6 CLICKS, yes 6 clicks(3 to marriage, 3 back) just to read MARRIAGE.
I have feeling that this Myheritage Family Tree is going not to user, but away from user. Have you even tested this rubbish?
Who has same opinion as me?
For example in new skin: I choose one person from family tree.... 3 clicks to event card... I am on event card, marriage was 1902,...When was born father of this person?..... 3 clicks back...Ah 1856... When had he divorced ? .... OH 3 clicks forward to his son... it is like in nuthouse = 9 clicks.
For example in old skin to get same informations: 1 CLick to left panel, there is marriage and everything else, also I see tree and know that father was born in 1856..
I totally agree. I was using e.g. comment fields a lot, it was very useful to see my notes just after one click on the person. Now it is a nightmare. Rhianna W. from MyHeritage replied already in another thread this (17 days ago), so I hope, it will be better soon:
You are not the only ones who weren't happy with the removal of the left side panel. We've seen that this is a very important feature of the online tree editor. The developers are currently in discussions about brining it back.
Nightmare is week word, I stop adding new information, until left panel will come back. Lets call the last myheritage update as Epic Mouse Patch or EMP. Cause on myheritage is peace and quiet like after EMP. I am betting click rate on myheritage is about 30 x more than before EMP. Cause everybody are searching and searching and searching....theirs own writen notes.
What is time frame for the left panel return? That is the question, I want to answer.
Removing the left panel is totally insensitive to the users and is passed down from MyHeritage with condescending remarks of change and progress. I am really disturbed by their attitude. Don't they have a quality control department?
The new web-layout of a tree needs serious re-thinking. The radar-bubble thingy is not making it any faster, in fact it is much worse. I hpe their asscociation with GENi maybe brings in some web better programmers.
You cannot show a tree of ~300 people like a tree of 20 people, like you were going no give it a nice printable layout. That is not the purpose of a large web-tree (to look printable).
I have suggested a hyper-links in the tree to navigate it faster.
The size scaling adjustment is has a range that varies from extremely large to incredibly illegibly small. Neither extreme has any use.
I saw a "tree" on Wikipedia of the English royal family that had a minimum of "white spaces". It deserves to be considered.
Adapting this program for a smart-phone is not a good idea at this point unless it can show 1600x1200 pixels, and comes with a microscope.
I am working as webdesigner / programmer and I understand the reasons why put something behind multiple clicks, this reason is advertisement, but here is none.
So I don't understand, why they put every important notes about each person in such amount of clicks.
Solution: Please, put an option "Turn Left Event Panel ON/OFF" to Settings(in right corner). In this case, you can keep the default setting of this option to OFF. But for those who are really interested in genealogy, it will be possible to work with your site. In case this option will be ON, it will be necessary, automaticaly put away first click to person, now first click opens persons card in center. First click in my scenerio, opens like old one, event card in lef panel.
Traffic: I doubt, that 6 clicks(3 reloads, 3 backs) are using less net traffic, as 1 click. So your servers need more power and capacity.
In the new online tree when you hover over a person or click on that person's card in the tree you get their basic information, rather than seeing it on the left hand side in a panel. This gives you a lot more real estate for viewing the family tree in context and it also shows you information about people in a more dynamic, integrated fashion. Before you had to click on each person in the tree to see their basic info, now all you have to do is move your mouse around to anyone and their info immediately pops up.
However, we appreciate your feedback and will make sure to forward it to our developers for future consideration.
"In the new online tree when you hover over a person or click on that person's card in the tree you get their basic information, rather than seeing it on the left hand side in a panel."
You get their basic information = only birth and death date. What about marriage, this is not basic?
"This gives you a lot more real estate for viewing the family tree in context and it also shows you information about people in a more dynamic, integrated fashion."
I am not here for buying houses, or some fashion...but making genealogy., with new skin, it is impossible to do anything!
"Before you had to click on each person in the tree to see their basic info, now all you have to do is move your mouse around to anyone and their info immediately pops up."
Pops birth and death:)))))) These two things are the most noninteresting thing, about each person.
However, we appreciate your feedback and will make sure to forward it to our developers for future consideration.What future, this rubbish skin has no future without left panel!
To the time when back panel will be back, it is not possible to work with your software, as you know from other thread on this forum. It is clear to all of us, that you haven't do any testing of this rubbish. Second thing, your new rubbish skin, take me AWAY chance to do genealogy, CAUSE SEARCHING IN CZECH LANGUAGE IS NOT WORKING AGAIN!
It looks like: This has been tested by Santa Claus himself.....so noboby tested anything....
VIVA LA: GIVE US BACK OUR LEFT PANEL!!!!
Thx, good to know. But who give a damm about mobile or tablet? I haven't any of them, I have 2 computers...
I wanna see someone from my heritage team, to do some new tree with 7000 people, in this new shiny, masterpiece of ignorace. Of course, he have to write to each person his job, notes. And this person will be doing it to end of his time .... with about 1000 mouses killed by clicking :(
So how I am going deeper to your new "bad" skin of family tree. I am founding more and more nonsenses.
Where the .... is marriage date? Are you kidding that I have to go 6 clicks, 1st click - on person in tree, 2nd click - more details, 3rd click - Events and 3 clicks back :) WOW... Who has this beef idea?
Before, it was ONE CLICK! Everything was on one click, now is everything killed in 6 click pillgrimage.
I have about 7000 people in tree, are you kidding?
You are right, correct number is 4. Still is 4 times more then in previous version of familly tree.
I never used profile card, I have about 7000 peoples in my tree, I dont have time for this epic clicking game. Left panel was the only thing that holds my on myheritage. Nice, quick resume about each person. And possibility of my relatives , put some new information to the tree, now they can only put only name, birth, death. Cause everything else is burried in 4 click grave.
All you as firm see is one family tree, but there is about 200 of my living relative and they were using myheritage. Now I had about 10 questions from 10 my relatives, what goes wrong ? Thay cann't find anything. And they don't write on forum or email you, they are emailing and writing me. So you are getting back maybe about 1/10 of response from people about new skin.
Was this been taken in consideration?
That good to hear it, you have to put it back. In another case, there is no simple way to work with these trees.
Having said that we do take into consideration all our users feedback as this is important to us and we are happy that you are voicing you and your families opinion with regards to this issue.
Thank you for your diligence and for bringing this to our attention and we hope to be able to satisfy all our users needs and requests in the near future yet as we all know these are not simple over night fixes as they require a lot of programming, testing etc etc.
Second and much IMPORTANT thing in your new skin is black ribbon of death on the box in the tree. Who get this silly idea put it in front of photo? Now I have to look at every photo to find out if is dead, cause the ribbon is totally hidding in photos, most of photos are black and white.
The place where were ribbon was before, was quite good, in left corner of the box. not on the photo.
The black ribbon that appears in the family tree does not appear over the photo itself rather it appears in the upper left hand corner of the deceased persons profile card purposely to not hide the photograph.
After looking into this for you and using all zoom options I was able to see that the black ribbon stays where it should be until you zoom totally out and then all information disappears and only pink and blue boxes appear.
I use Google Chrome as my default browser, could this possibly be the problem for you? maybe you need to try google Chrome as your default browser?
