I have not quite understood how the program handles a site where several GEDCOM files are present. Is it possible for a casual visitor (not registered) to select which GEDCOM file to view.
I can only show the selected default GEDCOM.
Then I have only been able to change the default GEDCOM when I was logged in as administrator.
Is it not possible for the casual visitor to change/select GEDCOM.
Do I have to make one phpgedview installation for each GEDCOM to achieve this?
Yes, it is possible.
First you have to have the configuration setting "Allow users to change gedcoms" enabled in the Admin->configuration page. Should be enabled by default.
If that is on there should be a drop down menu on the Welcome Page icon that will let your visitors change gedcoms.
In older versions of PGV there is a change gedcom link at the bottom of the page.
Thank you John,
That did it. I dont know why I did not enable the "Allow users to change gedcoms" option. Maybe I thought that it ment that the visitor was allowed to edit the GEDCOM file.
BTW here is my site. http://www.edshult.com/GedView/
It contains the Gedcoms that I have made for some people I have met on the internet.
A branch of the Lundgren family used to live on the farm where I was born and
I have a lot of common ancestry with Juliana Svensdotter (way back).
I guess the next thing is to add my own family tree to the list.
