If there are further branches of your tree that are unopened, you may need to open the rest of the tree (by pressing the leaf) that is connected to someone in order to edit that person’s profile. Notice here there is no edit option in this persons profile, but once the branch is opened, you will be able to edit their profile.
I have found two problems with FTB v184.108.40.2066 and the MyHeritage website.
(1) I created a family tree using FTB and a corresponding website for my wife's family, the O'Neils. When I tried to publish the family tree, the upload hung at 99% saying that it was waiting for the website to process the data. Strangely, I was able to export a GEDCOM file from FTB and import it into her website, I just wasn't able to publish it from within FTB. After many attempts to fix the problem, I finally concluded that the apostrophe in O'Neil was the problem. So, I edited the GEDCOM file from FTB by doing a global replacement of ONeil for O'Neil, opened the revised GEDCOM in FTB and was then able to publish to the MyHeritage website. I then edited the FTB tree to replace the apostrophes and was able to publish the revisions. So, the bug appears to be in the processing of uploads from FTB.
(2) I have 2 family trees created with FTB, one for my family and one for my wife's family. In my website, the tree cannot be edited, which someone told me was normal for a tree uploaded from FTB. This seems sensible, since there does not appear to be any way to sync the website with changes made in FTB. However, my wife's website can be edited by members. I looked around and found that the SETTINGS/PRIVACY/ADDRESS BOOK page had a check box to allow or not allow changes by members. However, the box was grayed out and could not be changed. Furthermore, box had no check mark in it, so how could editing by members be allowed?
So, I was adding people to my family tree. My sister then contacted me and told me that something was wrong, a person was listed as having a different dad than his siblings so I tried to fix it. Everytime I try to I get this message.
A communication error has occured while saving the update.
Please click Retry to try again.
Every single time I try to update this person, to delete him and this un-named father, it won't work.
When publishing from FTB, not all photos are uploaded. My storage space is approx. only half used in the MH website. What gives? All photos are in FTB and all are tagged. Have saved and published twice with same results. Are there any limitations to file size of photos? Most of mine have been scanned at at fairly high resolution. Here is copy of error report:
Warning: 4 photos were not added to the site. The photos may be missing, have incompatible format or are corrupt.
Alternatively, the site may have reached maximum capacity. The 'charnowski' site is currently at the Basic plan. If this is the case, please upgrade the capacity of this site to a better plan, which can be done here. After upgrading, publish your family tree again.
Hi, I have family members who have uploaded photos into an album that I want to use in the family tree. If I download these photos and use them in the tree then I get 2 copies of the photo. Is there anyway you can select photos in albums to use in the family tree - e.g. when you are in the tree and select add photo, in the browse is there a way to browse already uploaded photos. If this is not a feature is it one worth considering? Thanks for any help.
What you have to do to workaround the situation that you are talking about is to first tag that person in the picture.
Then you can go into the 'tagged photos' section under Photos, and find all the tagged photos of that person.
Then choose the photo that you would like to be that person’s personal photo, hover over that photo and click on the grey icon on the right. The personal photo will then be shown with a blue icon on the top right.
i entered the Calander settings, removed the mark from the check box that supposed to import yearly events of people that passed away. (just something to make a change)
i saved the settings, and got a msg that 900 event are added to the calander.
switched to monthly view of the calander, and got a blank page (added the scrennshot),
went back, checked the check box again, saved, switched to monthly view and nothing, blank.
the same thing with dayly view, the only thing that shows is yearly view of the calander, i see marks at places that has events, but when i press it it turns me to the blank page again (added a screen shot for that too)
i'm so eager to show my family what are we all paying for :-)
we are on MyHeritage web site for nearly two or three years, and still this thing isn't working.
i know u'r trying u'r best, and that u guys have a lot of costumer around the world and i read u'r blog, u are working on some beautiful stuff over there, but i think making what you already released work is just as important.
