Wishing to learn what Members could and coul not do to my online site without plaguing this forum with a host of questions, I decided to invite my evil twin ("Arthur Price") to be a member. Using an alternate email handle (BuhrmanXP), I issued the invitation, and all reponses from the MH online pages were positive and assuring ("we have sent a message"). But I (BuhrmanXP) have not received an email, and I (BuhrmanP) do not see a new name in the Members list in my online site. (Me and Myself both live in aol.com.)
Ah hah! An answer before I even asked my next question!
I came here today to report that, using my alias (BuhrmanXP), I went directly to the online site from my browser and succeeded in modifying a profile; a subsequent sync verified the change. "Arthur Price" is listed on the site as a Member, but his email address is wrong (I haven't corrected it). What Member name did you change?
My reason for this exercise was to: (1) determine what an invited Member could and couldn't do to the site; and (2) be prepared to coach naive family members in use of invitations.
My brother created an online site by inadvertance; he doesn't want to use it and wishes it would go away. (He is a MAC user, and thus has no FTB program.) Can he or I do this ourselves, and,if so, How? (Both his site and mine have "Buhrman" as all or part of their names.)
In order to observe invitation e-mails (to brief my brother) I "Invited" a deceased family member, using one of my alternate e-mail addresses. Now I know how it works, and now I want to delete the family member as a site member/user without risking his place in my FTB tree. How do I do this?
Not having had a reply, I decided to dare it myself. On the site page (which I reached via a browser bookmark), I "removed" my deceased uncle; my FTB tree was uneffected. But I don't know what would have happened had the link between my FTB tree and the MyHeritage site not been broken.
I am glad that you were able to resolve this problem.
Please note that there is a difference between a member profile, that is created when you invite a member, and the person's profile in the tree. Therefore, it is possible to remove a member, without making a change in the tree.
I got Family Tree Builder and, choosing Premium level, was provided with an online "shadow" site. I started my home tree by importing a GEGCOM file built by my brother; all worked perfectly, and a click on "go to site" got me to my onlne profile. My brother later went to MyHerirage.com and also chose Premium. Now, when I click on "go to site", I am taken to his online profile. I had previously defined an alternative address to my online page (PriceBuhrman.MyHeritage.com), and I can use this address directly in a browser to get there. But my home tree in FTB remains associated with my brother's online site, and FTB will only sync to it.
My Sync menu dropdown does not have a User Permissions item. I don't want to any syncing until I'm sure that FTB knows exactly what and where the online site is. If I pull down the Sync menu and Select its "My sites" item, the resulting display shows just one place: my online page; clicking "visit site" in that display takes me directly to my online profile. But clicking the "Family site" button on the "tool" bar brings up a totorial about MyHeritage.
I have a question: I have done a test website in the past and lately I created a new site in which my family tree is uploaded. How can I delete the old test website? I am administering both but I cannot find a delete function.
I am entering a particular member of my family and I am trying to enter her mothers details. The system seems to make the assumption that her mother was married to her father. By that I mean when I try to add 'Marias' mother it's asking me for her mothers 'maden' name and/or 'married' name, she doesnt have either just a surname!!!
