Thanks for your reply! I mean the look at the "family-site" where my members can enter. I guess I can´t change this from FTB? At the "family-site" I entered "inställningar-allmän-personligt" (guess in english "administration-general-personalize"). From this I can only change the "head-picture" I want (from what I can see)? Any way to change the colors to something other than blue and pink? Best Bertil
Laast nite I was working away on my tree in the tree builder and every so often would save and publish. Then I did that but during the process pressed abort as I realised I forgot to add something. Now any changes I make will not publish to the website. I have my Mums wrong age and my father in law as decessed and he is alive and well! And I have inveted him to the family saite and need to change it ASAP!!
Please note, that by design you can only see a part of your tree at at given time, to make processing easier and faster for you computer.
The other people in your tree are showed in "pruned" branches (the very small pink and blue icons that you can see above certain individuals).
You can click on these icons to show the "hidden" parts of the trees.
I have entered your site and saw your profile with your family branch.
I then entered your husbands branch by clicking on the "pruned" branches of his icon and then returned to your family branch by clicking the "pruned" branches of the icon that represents your profile- I have returned to the page that was displayed when I've opened the site.
I and some other folks have complained about this as well. Way in the beginning (2008/2009) myheritage did display the tree the way you and I and many others like to see it, but they changed it giving space, efficiency and speed as reasons. I would gladly give up a considerable portion of all of the above to be able to see more branches of the same generation! It has to be possible, because it is done in FTB.
There is supposed to be an editing button etc to edit a profile and there isn't one on my site. Need instruction on how to edit a profile when there is no editing button and clicking on the space where a ;photo is supposed to be doesn't work either.
In the Chinese culture, the order of children and how they are shown is very important.
In Family Tree Builder, I know I can changed the order of children via the Manage Chldren option. I've used it. However, when it publish it, the online version doesn't reflect my order. It seems to put it in the order of entry (ie, the order that I entered the chlidren or "ID" of the person), then by date of birth, etc. Adopted children tend to be listed after the natural children.
I have a case where the first son was adopted and should be listed first and I reflected it in Manage Children. However, MyHeritage.com changed the order.
Yes I truely believe you. However, sometimes it is not possible to get everyone's birth dates, especially for the older generation. I like the power of Familiy Tree Builder for being able to arrange the children in the right order but why couldn't MyHeritage.com take advantage of that? Of course it requires more software to be written.
I also use Geni.com (I prefer MyHeritage.com) and they allow you to specify the birth order and use it.
The online site dosen't recognize a seperate 'adopted' status. The only way to indicate that is a comment. I think all it recognizes is a seperate mother from the rest of the children, and birthdates. If you want to have adopted children, you have to put them on the tree last, and if they are older than any of the natural children, you would have to leave off the birthdates of the other children. When none of the children have dates, it puts them in order that you placed them. If a child has no dates, while the others do, the dateless child will always be listed as last
As I said, I use Family Tree Builder. It allows you to designate a child as "Natural" or "Adopted" or "Foster". When I designate a child as "Adopted", the online site shows it as a dashed line from the parents, rather than a solid line.
I also disagree with you that dateless children as listed last. I have a case where child1 is adopted and has birth/deceased dates. The other natural children also have dates and some don't. So according to you the dateless children would be listed last. However, child1 is listed last.
Sorry, I guess since I had never published(I do everything online) I had figured that they only used the dashed line to indicate a divorce. So I figured it automatically translated what you had into terms that the online site recognized as if it had actually been written there from the start.
