Some fields in the member profile and the tree seem not to be linked. One key example is the photo. MyHeritage is smart enough to use the first photo the member is tagged on as the tree photo, but then it takes an extra step to confirm that same photo in the profile page. That is sometimes confusing, and the added flexibility is in detriment of ease-of-use.
There are plenty of scripts available out there for downloading friends' albums from facebook. It shouldn't be too hard to extend the facebook photo upload function to include friends' albums. Uploading tags matching site members with facebook ids in their profiles would be a bonus.
Part of our windows client application 'Family Tree Builder' includes a tree consistancy checker, where you can get consistancies as you described. You are welcome to export you tree through GEDCOM and import it there, and check your tree for inconsistancies.
Excellent. So you have the functionality already! I'll look forward to seeing it ported to the website, so that I can use the 'fix it' link/button there as well (rather than seeing the errors in the software, and fixing them manually on the website).
It'd be best if MyHeritage completely ignored accents on characters when searching for a name. One is never quite sure whether the name was entered with or without the accent on the tree. Ignoring accents when searching is the industry standard set by Google.
I second this request. This is a very difficult point for me. Not all pictures were recognized as having faces (though many did). I would like to pull those out so I can tag them manually, but cannot wirthout opening each individual picture. VERY FRUSTRATING.
Similar to the 'names of married women' genealogy setting, it'd be great to configure the site to show an alternate name (e.g. nickname, religious name) when one is available. Some people in my family are only known by their nicknames.
The site is lacking some basic file management capabilities. It'd be great to:
Perform batch actions, e.g. delete a select set of photos/videos/files;
Sort files by size and format (i.e. photo, video, etc); and
Automatically identify duplicate files for deletion (if you can recognise a person's face in different photos, at different points in time, with different light and colouring conditions, I'm pretty sure you can spot identical files).
I keep trying to generate a chart in style 5 and each time it comes up with only the bare text; no boxes, joining lines, pictures, border, background image or title decoration. What is going wrong, please?
Thank you for generating my chart but when I tried to do it on multi pages the same thing happened. Nothing between names but a couple of dots so you can`t see how people are related. In addition I saw that at least three people did not have their sir names or dates.
I need this chart to print and send to an elderly relative [who does not use a computer] who will in turn give me more information to grow the tree. There is no point in paying for a copy of the chart you generated because the tree is not yet finished.
MyHeritage is mostly so good and I thought that now I have upgraded to Premium plus I would have no problem generating charts. Am I doing something wrong or is it a problem with the site? The same thing happens whatever chart I try to generate.
