The reason that you are not able to edit the tree is that you are a member of a family site where the tree was created in Famly Tree Builder and then published to the family site.
When one creates a family tree in Family Tree Builder and publishes it to a family site, neither the site manager or site members can edit the tree online. In order to make changes, only the site manager can edit the tree in Family Tree Builder and then re-publish the family tree to the family site. This will update the previously published tree (with the same name) on the site.
I don't know why it wasn't explained, but any person, who have been given the administrator rights, can download the Family tree builder, then download the most updated tree file from the site, modify / update it and re-upload to the site. Look for Family Tree >> Manage Trees >> Download to Family Tree Builder
When you give someone administration rights, you are giving them the rights to change configurations on the site, to download the tree, basically anything that you can do on the family site, they will be able to do.
If you don't want someone to be able to download a copy of the family tree, it's best to simply invite them as a regular member rather than giving them administration rights (making them a Site Manager).
A member of the tree has the wrong photo. i followed the instructions to click on the members in the tree and select the options dropdown. The only thing that shows up there is "View this persons branch".
Some profiles show the Change Photo, but many only have the View Tree.
On the top of the photo, I get the option to delete it, but when I do that it does not work.
I am site manager. Should I not be able to see all the options???
This ia Linda Shea ! = Linda's Stanley/Taylor web site & my other site= Linda's Taylor side They now belong to my Cousin= The Stanley one & the other one=Linda's Taylor side to his daughters site since we accepted each other as members !!! Help!!!
When you created your Linda's Stanely/Taylor web site and Linda's Taylor site you registered with an email address. You need to make sure you are signed in with that email address in order for us to recognize you as the Site Manager of your sites.
At the time you wrote this post you were not logged in with the email address that is registered as the Site Manager of the above sites. This is the reason you didn't see them properly.
Make sure that every time you visit your family sites you log in and every time you finish you log out so that no one else will accidentally use your account and you won't accidentally use someone else's account.
Well this is just a detail. Say a feedback. My genealogical pages look like a funeral notices collection. Personal cards in a family tree and photos of all of my ancestors (ok, those dead only) are set out with a black ribbon. One hundred years for keeping a grief is enough , isn't it? Deeper into the past I go the black ribbon is lesser and lesser adequate to my sentiments.
Ros, I SO agree with you. Nearly every member my site prefers the Classic view, but it has a number of glitches in it. No matter how many times I have asked MH to do something, their pat answer is "we have decided not to further develop the Classic View". A frustrating answer. Classic view is far superior, and much easier to move around in!
Are they working to improve (fix) this? Entering families is easier on classic view because everything is condensed and easier to see, but harder because you cannot get into the profiles. Especially because the basic form has lines for dates and not places. It just makes everything hard to use. I end up not puting in places although I have them because it is too difficult. You have to switch between classic and modern and sometimes it loses your place. You also have to be in modern view to add a second spouse. This is one of my biggest complaints about the sofware. It is hard to use, so I am entering less data. Or am I using it wrong?
