I just joined the MyHeritage membership and had this problem. I have only just found this in the forum. My problem is that it notifys me that the version on site is more recent but gives a time that is 5 hours ahead. I am in the UK. I noticed you sent an email to the 2 members who oriiginally had the problem 2 years ago but it doesn't help me as there were no details of the fix. My FTB version is 188.8.131.5224 if this helps. I made an enquiry and was given ref #2011100410003566. So far no answer. Can you help?
There is a bug for the problem you report. The developers have been notified.
We are working to fix the problem as soon as we can. I apologize for any inconvenience.
This is actually a false warning that happens for some users because of timezone problems with our servers.
Just ignore the message, the publish process shouldn't be affected.
When I first started at MyHeritage, I started creating a family tree and I liked how the web version was interactive such that when you click on a person box in the tree choices would appear making things a breeze to edit and add stuff. Then I exported my tree and downloaded the Family Tree Builder application to work on it offline. That was okay but at first when I published changes I thought they didn't show up online, until I noticed I actually had 2 trees under manage trees - one was the web version and the other was the FTB version. So I deleted the web version of my tree to avoid confusion. But now I noticed that I can't edit anything online because I can only make changes in the family tree builder application on my PC. I'm assuming it's an either/or situation where you can only edit the same file in the program it was created in? Is there any way to import the PC version from FTB to the Web editable version so other family members can edit my family tree?
No, thos is not possible publish from offline FTB on home computer AND simultaneously edit it online on web. It is may be in developing. Currently you must choose only one method. But web method is not comfortable and provide you less details in person cards/records. Offline editting via FTB is much better.
I've got a question about that, I've got the FTB on my pc system and I invited my father via email.
Is there a way he can edit some details about persons, becaurse now he only can visit the published tree online, and can't edit, or does he also have to download the FTB for windows if he want's to edit something?
As I scribe previously: If you use FTB, current state is, that only ONE person is webmaster and can make changes by persons intree (simplified). Other members of web site (invited peoples) can only view tree. But can make changes in our personal MyHeritage profile, and upload photos to web album (if you enable it).
The only way is, email needed changes to you, and centrally manage it.
I know, this is limit, but i hope, using FTB is much better than online-web editting! (And you have offline backup at home!)
I'm using Geni.com to collaboratively build the family tree, and MyHeritage's Family Tree Builder to make paper graphs and reports. I'm using GEDCOM export feature on Geni, and importing it on MyHeritage. But when importing, there are errors about missing files. Geni uses URLs to reference images, and it seems MyHeritage cannot read them. So I have written a PHP script that download the images to disk and converts the .ged file to reference those images. After that the photos are imported like a charm.
Yes, i know this function, i tried it. But not know, how set any relation link (graphic line) between this new (godfather) and his godson! New person appears absolutely standalone, unrelated. I want have visible while godson selected.
I have been getting an error while attempting to upload some pictures - invalid parameter (I think that was the correct verbage - I'm at work and can't use the software here) - the error is consistent on a specific picture but does not apply to all pictures. All of these pictures where created the same way - the latest ones I've had issues with was the jpg's of census pages saved from Ancestry.com.
Because I have a dial-up Internet connection with long-distance charges, I need to control the connections. FTB tries to initiate a dial-up connection when it starts. I've chosen to turn of publishing, but this had no effect. What else can I do to turn off the auto-connect to the Internet at startup of FTB?
