Thanks for replying. I was beginning to fear I was the only one not figuring it out. I've tried a few more times and it definitely seems like it's meant to do what we want it to do. There's an option to allow others to add to the album.
1. Guests should not be able to see Addresses in the Genealogy
Check your privacy settings in the Admin section of your site. If they are set to "mixed" or "private", then only members will see addresses in the Genealogy section.
2. Members should be able to edit the Genealogy, add people, edit notes, etc...
You can always promote members to webmaster status to allow them to modify the site.
If you want them to be able to add info to the family tree, then have them do it in Family Tree Builder. What you can do is send them the FTB tree you have already made, let them modify it and re-publish it.
Anyone who is a webmaster on your site would be able to do this on his/her own.
I tried to change my setting to Mixed, but I unchecked Genealogy. I just wanted the Guest Book to be accessible to non-members. When I did that it switched to Private all on its own. I tried this about 4 times, with the same results. I'll leave it Private; it's not that huge of an issue. Just thought I'd pass on the info.
Hmmm. It is set to Mixed, but it says under Guest Privileges: "Genealogy | All Pages | [check]Access". IE: It appears to tell me that Guests can either have access to ALL pages or to NONE. Am I misreading this?
So if I have 3-4 different people each editing the tree in Family Tree Builder themselves at the same time... when they go to upload the tree, wont there be potential conflicts? Does the site make sure to synchronize FROM the site as well as TO the site?
Ignoring #2 for now since it is covered in another thread...
Is there any update on #1? I would prefer to open up some information (say Names) to guests -- but am not about to do that until it is clear what is public and what is private. "All Pages" doesn't cut it. If it is already implemented correctly, then it should just say that on the Privacy Settings screen.
Hmm... It appears that right now, if we give public access to the genealogy, they don't even see first names or pictures of those who are still alive (or that we forgot to checkmark deceased)...
See, what I am thinking is that I want to be able to help other genealogists look for the information, without putting those living at risk of privacy concerns... For example, first AND last name visible, ability to choose whether No Address, Full Address, County/State Only visible to guests, etc...
If you have a child with someone that you don't marry, you can list "Other" instead of "Marriage"... but on the Family Pages, it still lists the "Other" as "Wife" which could be offensive to the actual Married Wife.
I sent an invitation to 4 of my family members to join my family site that I made. 3 of them did not receive an invitation (even in their spam folder) and 1 of them did - but it was blank. I sent one to myself at another email address and I never got it. Is anyone else having trouble inviting people to join their family pages?
I plan on emailing them tonight when I get home from work, but I just thought I'd check to see if anyone was having similar problems.
I sent one to myself at a yahoo address, and another to a gmail, also to my work email address. They were all informal, text versions. And previously I had sent an html version to my yahoo address - informal - and I believe the first template. No luck yet. I will try the different templates and some different emails when I get home from work.
Please try sending out text (rather than HTML) invitations and see if it works. You can actually do a re-invite on the invitations you already sent, but select the Text format instead of HTML. Re-invite yourself too at the other email address. Let me know if that worked.
If you click on Places, then click View on one of them, it takes you to a default info page for MyHeritage instead of to info about the place. If that is not in place yet, it should be listed as "Coming Soon" instead of "View" to be consistent with the rest of the site.
In most places, it seems to accept 'de Ælfweald' ok, but on the bar at the top, it says "Home | Products | Face recognition | Genealogy | Community | Research | About | de lfwea..." -- not only cutting it off, but missing the AE-ligature
