Web output customisation

I've been an iFamily user for ever; well since 2009. I've always really enjoyed using it, however the web output is too simple. I don't mind the actual content, however it's the lack of customisation of the overall page that is frustration. I want to incorporate the pages INTO my site, not have it A...

I realise this is a little late, but if you have not solved it....

Are you moving from the iMac to the MBPro, or wish to run on both?

I agree with the above. Although I'm not sure what you mean when talking about the list of initial letters. What's the issue there? What would be even better is if the HTML output could use a template file so users could then customise it. At the moment, I incorporate the HTML pages into my website ...

Crashes at launch

I've been away from my tree for a year or so but decided to get back on it. In the interim I have upgraded to a MacBook Air and today I re-downloaded iFamily (following the link from the email sent to me years ago when I bought iFamily). I seem to be running the latest version but as soon as I launc...

It certainly stands out!!!

Aesthetically, and in consideration of it&#39s surroundings and the Operating System as a whole, it does not fit.

It&#39s a difficult one, as everyone has their own idea of what works.

While I agree that the jpeg images are nicer looking than the html tables, if you switch to the latter approach you will be able to use a text editor to make the desired changes. This is true, and I could also take the engine out the car and push it to work! :D :D :D Fingers crossed we get a soluti...

thanks for the suggestion 'hib'. However there still lies the issue that the JPG files iFamily creates having the "..or recently deceased" text as part of the image. I now find myself doing more and more post-production work on the HTML before I publish it. I do not have a huge tree, but each ...

Change "Living or Recently Deceased" tag

Is there any way to change "Living or Recently Deceased" in the graphic of the HTML to say "Living". I am generating the HTML with the LorRD option so that I can still show the layout of the tree and still allow navigation, however it is amazing how many of my family have taken offence that they are...

Re: The "Name" field.

i was just wondering, is there any reason why the Name field couldn't be separated up into First and Last name? I guess you'd also have to have a field for middle name(s). I wondered this too when I first started using iFamily. Previously I was using another piece of software that did split t...

Thanks Warwick. Maybe the solution could be simply achieved if all HTML files names simply included the ID and not the persons name, even if not using the "Depersonalize" option. I can't think of a reason to have the persons name in the filename at all, but maybe there is one. Anyway, thanks for ...

Depersonalize the HTML has too much information

When generating HTML of the data to include on a web site, I have used the "Depersonalize Living and Recently Dead people". This option allows you to see the structure of the tree and the fact that the person married/had children, etc. Whereas "Exclude Living People" does not allow you to navigate f...

What about adding an Event? I add an event dated the date of their death, with an event type of "Description&#39. In this I note something like &#39Bachelor&#39 if he never married or &#39No children at death&#39.
