I am curious about your comment that "the Genealogy Center hasn't been updated in a while". Approximately when was it last updated?
I have had my family tree on MyHeritage for at least 2 years and I am not seeing any of the names from my tree when I search in the Genealogy Center. During this whole time I have had the Smart Match option "Make this family tree public in the Genealogy Center" checked and my privacy option for guests is set to Mixed Site.
Do I possibly have some other option set incorrectly?
THe reason that you don't see your site in the Genealogy Center search is that we haven't updated it in a while. We apologzie for the inconvenience.
The reason the Genealogy center has not been updated is that our developers are working very hard on a new enhanced SuperSearch engine that will include an improved version of the Genealogy center and much more. It should be released soon, so stay tuned- it's worth waiting for!
Ho pubblicato il mio albero genealogico da FTB sul sito, e correttamente i membri identificati come "privati" su FTB compaiono solo come riquadri anonimi.
Questo è comunque problematico perché compaiono comunque le relazioni: ad esempio un parente potrebbe avere un figlio illegittimo, presente su FTB come privato. Sul web non compare il nome, ma dalle linee tra riquadri anonimi si capisce benissimo che questo parente ha un figlio/a illegittimo. Anche a mettere questo parente come privato il problema non cambia. (per i parenti lontani e/o amici di famiglia -specie in un paese piccolo- non è difficile comunque individuare tale parente anche se privato partendo da quelli non privati, ed è proprio a loro che vorrei nascondere tale informazione).
Lo stesso problema per le adozioni, che compaiono come linee trattegiate al posto che intere, anche per i membri privati anonimi: attenzione, questi sono dati assai sensibili !
La domanda è come si fa su FTB a marcare un membro privato in modo che non compaia neppure come riquadro anonimo sul web ?
Altrimenti sono costretto o non pubblicare sul web, o tenere la genealogia solo per i membri.
I know about the "Tools > Publishing > Advanced publishing settings menu", but it doesn't allow to select multiple name (with ctrl or shift) and so it takes a long time to select one by one about one hundred people. And it shall be done each time you publish. So it is not a praticable solution.
My suggestion is to add an other flag (other that the one already present to set a people as private) in the detail of each person to disallow the publication of such a person, as if such a person doesn't exist at all. This of course should disable the publication of also all the other people which are tied to the tree by means of explicitly disabled person.
The other issue is the different line for adoption line which should not used in case of living people.
I think the general idea is that other people will have info you will want but don't want to bother to ask you to add it. The recommendation itself is no big deal and has nothing to do with individual members' thoughts or preferences.
Yes, please allow members to continue to edit/update information, but I agree that this information must be approved by the site administrator. I put so much work into researching data on my ancestors and when another family member updates the details of someone I have already researched, I'm very concerned. This should not be allowed to happen without my approval. Thanks for listening, and I really love using your site to track my genealogy! :)
I tried downloading Updates for my MyHeritage 4 a number of times. While the Update to both 5 and 6 seem to work properly, I can no longer use my Outlook Express 6. Has anyone else encountered this problem?
I can't even send the error report detail via the error screen as my email doesn't work!
I have also complained about this problem back in July.
I'd have thought it would be relatively simple to fix. Just filter the GEDCOM and strip the HTML before it is fed to Nigel Bufton's program.Ideally some formating would be preserved, but I'd be happy with a quick fix.
Our programmers decided that since there are some programs that can import these HTML tags, to remove HTML tags only in case of creating a family book. This issue is currently only partially fixed- but they are woring on it.
I will update you regarding the matter as well, and apologzie for the inconvenience.
