There are several bugs in online representing information uploaded by Family Tree Builder Program. To name a few:
  1. Missing address info in the Person Panel under Family Tree Tab. Only phone number(s) and/or e-mail address are shown if present. Is it done deliberately or is it just a simple ommission? The same problem exists on Member Profile page. 
  2. Under Picture and Video Tab in a bilingual site, the picture captions, as well as the date and place, are always those from English description, even if the site displayed in a different language.
  3. The Welcome Text from the Home Page can be edited using extended formating (bold, italic, etc). However it is shown on Home Page in a plain text mode only.
  4. In Family Tree>Reports>Family statistics : Ages, the Ukrainian translation of "Lived the most" and "Lived the least" titles switched to opposite: "Найменша тривалість життя" and  "Найбільша тривалість життя".It should be reversed.
  5. When someone visits a site as a nonregistered visitor, the Ukrainian version of the greeting "You are not a member in this family site" should be "Ви не є учасником цього сімейного сайту", not "Ви не зявляєтесь учасником цього сімейного сайту

I would greatly appreciate, if those bugs were fixed.

In addition, I have suggestion to place a link to a person's profile page from the Person's panel under Family Tree tab.

Hi Volodymyr,

 

1. There is a bug in the Family Tree page, but it should appear in the personal profile page. make sure you are displaying events and facts.

2. This is a known issue.

3. This is also a known issue.

4. I will forward this observation to our head of translations.

5.  same as 4.

 

Thank you for the feedback. We are always making updates and bug fixes to the website, and it is very helpful to have reports from users.

 

Regards,

Noam \ MyHeritage

Thank you for your prompt replay Noam.

Yes, you are right about  Item 1.

To continue the list of issues, here is the following:

  1. The search in Family Tree>People is case sensitive, so wnen I search for Bodnar and bodnar, I get plenty results for the first and none for the last.The same was partially true for MyHeritage search bar in Firefox I use, particularly in the part "Research ... genealogically with MyHeritage". It used to produce different results for words with small or captital first letters (the results were also either with small or capital first letter). It looks to have changed right now, but my suspicion is that search is now performed only for capitalized words in both cases (no results with small first letters). Could you verify that?
  2. Further the search in Family Tree>People is language sensitive. I have bilingual Ukrainian-English site, but to do the search in one of the languages I have to switch the whole site to that language. I think it would be more convenient to see the search results in both languages without need to switch to specific one.
  3. In Member Profile Show: Events & Facts | Notes & Sources | Family the displayd sources are not complete. Only the title of the source is present, but the specifics is missing.
  4. There are more issues with the text editors like the one I use right now. The issue can be demonstrated using my previous message (it looked as formated properly in the editor, but not now). Further I was not able to niether get rid of the table at the end of this message (introduced by pasting some text copied from the website) nor write after it.

Thanks,

Volodymyr

Hi Volodymyr,

 

1.  I am not able to reproduce this problem in English. Perhaps it only happens with Ukrainian letters? could you verify that please?

2. I am not able to reproduce this problem either. Could you give me a specific example where this happens in your site?

3. Could you please send me your GEDCOM file, and tell me which not is missing? you can send it to noam@myheritage.com

4. We are aware of the problems with the text editor, they will be fixed.

 

If you have more technichal questions, please write me at my personal mail, noam@myheritage.com

 

Regards,

Noam

 Hi Noam,

  1. It looks that you right, it does happen with Ukrainian letters only when searched the site in the Ukrainian language mode. English works OK. The same is true for MyHeritage bar search in Firefox (in Google custom search for MyHeritage Genealogical research, for example, try to search  боднар vs Боднар vs БОДНАР vs БодНар). 
  2. This is not really a problem but rather inconvenience. Since I have bilingual site, most of the info (but not everything) is duplicated in two languages. However when I have site in Engligh language mode, I cannot search anything in Ukrainian (unless some text in English side of the site is entered in Ukrainian) and vice versa.
  3. I will send you specific information on missing source info later when I get to my computer with the FTB program.
  4. I am glad to hear it.

And a new question: how come that my site does not appear in the results of the online search using MyHeritage bar in Firefox? I suppose when I look for names from my family tree, I should be able to hit entries from my own site every time.

My site does appear when searched in MyHeritage Community > Family Sites > Site Center. BTW that search is also case sensitive for Ukrainian leters ( try again боднар vs Боднар vs БОДНАР vs БодНар).

Thanks and regards,

Volodymyr

Hi Volodymyr,

 

1. You are right, it looks like a bug. thank you for reporting it! I will let our development team know about it.  

If your site is not private, you should be able to find deceased individual in this search. Is there some example of an individual you can't find?

Hi Noam,

I cannot find neither deceased nor alive people (by last name). As an examle, try search using http://search.myheritage.com/?q= with my grandfather's name as listed in the family site - Mefodiy Bodnar (or Мефодій Боднар in Ukrainian). Neither can be found.

As for missing information on sources, for some people in the tree I used sources that were listed as source name and source page (in FTB program). Online, only the souce title was shown on the profile page under source category.

Thanks and regards,

Volodymyr

Hi Volodymyr,

 

The names from your Family Site will show in the Genealogical Search engine's database the next time we update it.  For now you can only find names that were in our Database before the last update.

 

as for the missing notes - please send me the project to my personal mail with details.

 

Regards,

Noam
