You can have different Smart Matches settings for each of your online trees - if you follow the instructions I have sent you, you can prevent receiving the same matches for your second tree by disabling Smart Matches for the second tree alone.
If you enable Smart Matching for both trees, other site managers will indeed receive matches for both of the trees, but you will not receive matches to other trees you manage.
Seems we don't understand each other. As described earlier, I want to merge two trees (my own subtree as FTB1 import of Gedcom into a prevously cleanedFTB2) on my local machine and publish online the merged result, hence only one tree is published at any time.
My question is: will Smart Matches send around new match reports to other family tree administrators for all persons in the published tree (the published version of FTB2) or only for the newly added persons (compared to the previously published version - the changes may originate from either FTB1 or from the Gedcom input). This all depends on how person lists are maintained within your server and is a technical design matter.
Obviously in a family tree there are many people with the same name. A person added to the tree should trigger Smart Matches, even if he/she has an already used name. How does the tool differentiate? If done by e.g. birth date, that would solve the issue. I hope it is not by RIN number, since that one is reallocated each time for every person by FTB in my scenario.
I hope this thread was also useful for other administrators, since many work in mixed environments.
Please note, that the Smart Matching engine comdines all the entered inforamtion about each individual in your tree project (name, birth dates, relatives) in order to search for suitable matches for that individual.
My charts don't have last names on them. I'm running family tree builder 188.8.131.528. I've run 'check for updates' and it says this is most current. When I first open a chart for first time in a given project, it defaults to 'stylish' design - names and pics look fine. I don't want the photo's so I switch to 'traditional'. At this point names and pics still look fine. I then pick the 'never' option on photo size and photo/placeholders disappear but so do last names of everyone. I switch to 'only if exists' and last names are there if pic is, but no last name if not.
Is this a bug?
I've attached screen shots of 'never' and 'always' showing how last name disappears when no picture.
Firstly, you did not receive this version when you checked for updates, because we have not yet released this version for updates. It is a finished stable version, that does fix many bugs that we have found with the charts.
I did not see any attached photos with your forum post.
I redid full install. This one seemed to do more (uninstall seemed to delete stuff for a long time, I don't remember that and I had to do a restore from backup to find my project - I don't remember having to do that either). It seemed to lose my premium status as well but I think all is well once I restored.
I may have spoke to soon. When upgrading it seems to have lost that I'm a premium member. I have a 'update to premium' button when I run the software and claims I'm running the free version and don't get smart research, etc.
What am I missing? How do I run the premium version like before I did the zap update?
Now when I go to smart matches, it appears to work.
But when I go to research, it says 'smart research has not yet been performed on this project' , the buttons are faded out, and it says 'Unable to create Smart Research project folder'.
Where is the 'folder' it's trying to create? Maybe I can create it so it has something there (or conversely maybe it's already there with wrong properties and I need to change them). The Sparrell folder has Backup, Cfg, Database, and Photos folders.
Sorry for all this hassle. I just want it to work like it used to.
I am - although I don't like to be - it's not good security to require a user to be administrator. Even as a user you have permission for documents folder which is where everything is I think. Could you tell me where it tries to put stuff so I can check explicitly since even as admin, it won't change permission of a read-ony unless you tell it to. I did find some read-only files/directories which I changed but it didn't help. They probably got that way somehow in how we installed the new myheritage (recall I had problems). So if I know where to look maybe I can find it. Or if it needs a directory created, maybe I should just create it.
I may have uncovered the root of the problem but I don't know how to fix. I went to make a book report (which I have done before many times but maybe not since all these problems) and it said it couldn't find the Report directory to write it into. So I traced where everything is and discovered my root directory for myheritage data/db/photos/reports/etc is on my backup drive which is networked - not on the pc. Apparently when I did the upgrade and restore from backup back when you had me fix the first problem, I ended up with the backup directory as my main directory. I suspect that is cause of all my recent issues.
How do I move off the network drive and onto c drive? can I just move all the files and open up from the new directory?
Let's try changing the root directory where your project is stored. First, I would like you to please create a backup of your entire project. To do so, please go to File > Manage Projects, and export a package of your project. Please save it on your computer, and also on an external drive.
Then, please go in Family Tree Builder to Tools > Options and please choose to save your project in the following place: C:\Documents and Settings\estherw\My Documents\MyHeritage\
