The point is that Family Tree Builder DOES import the images from the path indicated in the GEDCOM file, what Connie and myself need is that image, if it is the first one for that person, becomes to "personal photo" of the person that it is associated with.
If the photo was already a profile photo in the original file and/or on the family tree online, the Family Tree Builder will also recognise it like so and add it to the profile. The same way that there is a link for the photo on the GEDCOM, there is also an indication for that that the photo is a profile photo.
However, if the photo was not originally a profile photo on the site, then the Family Tree Builder will not recognise like so.
In that case, you have to make as a profile photo.
1. Select the photo you would like to use and click ‘Edit’.
2. Next, find the ‘Associations’ tab. Here is where you define the personal photo for an individual. Click on the person’s name – this will activate the marking tool.
3. Check ‘Personal photo’ option, mark the face of the individual and click ‘OK’.
I recently had cause to review the matches I made on a relative whose last name was West. U went to the record matches page, but there is no option to search for a name - I had to use the page numbers in between the "previous" and "next" buttons on the bottom of the page to jump through to page 63. I gave up because it was taking too long. Could you add a search function to this page?
While the develpoement team are looking into "Smart Matches" screens can they please fix the "Back to matches" link as when the matches are viewed the return is not back to the orginal list position if for any reason you leave the page to verify the match, even if viewed in another tab, as the default postion is always page 1 of "Sort by : Matches"
Also when invited to join another tree the is no way of listing the matches that you may or may not have confirmed with the invitee
i don't wanna bring these up, but since i wanna do this... my father was adopted since he was little, so he actually has two family(two fathers and two mothers-but he never saw his biological father in his life); i'm from Taiwan, which speak multiple languages (mainly Mandarin so far) my sister got married in US and yes my brother-in-law is an American, and my brother-in-law's parents got divorce and remarried when he was young, which means he also has "more than one parents"(biological parents and step parents), if i want to add these family members on the family tree, i may need you to add some options to let me build up family tree with these special occasions...many thanks!
The "What's new" (front page summary) and the weekly report summary only summarise the additions to the site. e.g. Stephen added Blah, Blah, Blah and 20 other people to the family tree".
Would it be possilbe please to improve this listing in the weekly summary and provide a fuller list of people who have been added to the site.
Alternatively, would it be possible to provide a link to a page that provides the full list of additional names.
A purpose of the weekly summary is to garner and report the latest additions, but too much of the interesting information is lost in the very brief summary. When people subsequently visit the site there is no easy way to deternine what is new or the extent to which any branch of the tree has been increased or decreased.
This makes life especially difficult for site managers, who can see (say 23) people have been added, but can't easily determine who they all are. The larger the site and the larger the number of contributors, the bigger the problem.
Please consider helping with this. Especially please consider any improvement that would make collaboration between multiple contributors easier - (for family sites like mine that have a number of family members collaborating and contribution).
Thank you for your support. It might not be hard to implement a simple version of this idea. As a starting point it might only be a matter of making the "PEOPLE" listing sortable by "date added". This would give us a simple listing from youngest record to oldest record. This way everyone could see the latest editions.
Showing this list with the actual "date added" shown would be a bonus. But I would settle for just the ordered list if that could be implemented quickly and easilty.
Improving the weekly mail out list to report ALL additions - or a much fuller list - would still be a welcome and very nice addition when time permits.
The much bigger dream would be to know who make each update or correction. I imagine this would be a bit harder to implement. It would be ideal to know "last modified" and "by who". That would be the complete deal.
"how hard would it be to implement a "date added" option" was not a complaint. It was just a question? On reflection "how hard would it be" might sound like a complaint, but it wasn't. My question was - in your personal opinion, would it be a hard thing to do - how hard?
I know the official line is - complex databases, thorough testing, lots of lead time, prioritized according to volume of requests, limited resources, can't do everything...
I'd be interested to know, what was the last change implemented by MH as a direct result of a suggestion made on this forum?
