The network has no direct connection to the Internet, just via the http proxy.
FTB application correctly uses the http proxy for connection to the Internet, but I mentioned Family Tree Builder Installer - http://a.myheritageonline.com/FP/FamilyTreeBuilder/family_tree_builder.exe , small 555576 bytes file that loads the full application. And this Installer tries to connect directly, not via the proxy as desired..
So - is there any way how to force the installer to use the http proxy? Or it is just broken and has to be modified by your programmers to use the http proxy correctly?
You first say NO one can edit my family tree if i published it. then you say there is a Privacy option to allow/dissallow editing or posting content to the site.
1. After having built a tree of 7 generations, I would hate to have a 5th generation member mess up the tree. Can I do this?
2. However, if that 5th generation member has valid updates to his/her family, I would like for them to be able to do this. Can this be done in conjunction with #1 above. Or would that 5th generation member have to build their tree, and I then could merge that tree with mine?
1. Since you are working with FTB, your Site Members will not be able to change the tree. They can add and tag photos online, but not edit the actual tree, or tagging you made in the software.
2. We are now working on the next version of FTB. When this version is released, you will be able to allow some of your members to edit the tree online. The changes will then be automatically updated in your software.
You write that in the next version of FTB you are opening up the option for others to edit online, and changes will be updated in FTB. Is that new version already live?
I have the same thoughts on security. We have a family tree with 11 generations, and if anybody can start making changes, I am about to become very concerned. Unless you can give them access to limited area. And even then there should be a form of quality control before the changes are being merged with the existing data. A good solution could be that the webmaster needs to verify the new data first.
Another security issue that was addressed on this forum was that all members have possibility to invite others. This feature combined with the fact that all can add or edit data, makes it impossible to control the quality of the new information, and a lifes work could be destroyed in just a few seconds. After all, one does not know who is inviting who to become a member. If a child from a maried-inn lady 10 steps away invites his best school buddy to become a member,and he starts screwing around on the site? A real disaster!
Has the option of restoring a published family tree back to FTB along with all the photos. This is not the full 2 way synch yet, it is only the first step. The full synch is planned for FTB 6.0, which will be our next majour release.
It is possible for the site manager to block other members from inviting new members to the family site.
To do so, go to the Settings > General page, and click on the Administration tab.
Your other point regarding security is very true, and we hope to incorperate such a mechanism in the future.
Thank you for your reply. I have the latest version, so that is OK. It was the 2 way sync feature I was refering to. So as long you include a quality control feature in the new 6 release, that is great. (Like: not confirmed / confirmed). A way to give the admin the time to discuss or check the new data.
I am looking where other users have the possibility to change info online, other then writing in the guest book or adding pictures. So I am talking about adding persons, changing names or dates, even changing relationships, or removing persons online. Can you tell me where to do this? I found some info that if the site is created by an upload from FTB, this feature is notpossible. If the web site is created without using FTB, it should be active. If this info is correct, then my problem is solved.
