Per importare il tuo primo GEDCOM e creare la tua prima pagina:

  1. Find the Upload GEDCOM File page link under Rootspersona Options.
  2. Browse for a GEDCOM file on your local PC and select ‘Upload’.
  3. Seleziona una o più persone per creare pagine e seleziona ‘Invia’

Il tuo sito WordPress ora avrà una o più pagine persona per le persone che hai selezionato!

Note: importing GEDCOM files from different programs can have unexpected consequences.
Rootspersona uses the ids generated in the GEDCOM file, and different programs may assign the same ids to different people.
It is recommended to manage your data in a single program (the ‘system of record’),
and to use GEDCOM files generated by that program, only.

Cosa è successo al file GEDCOM che ho caricato?

The GEDCOM file on your PC is untouched. The copy uploaded to WordPress is converted into a set of
person and family files in XML format. After conversion, the GEDCOM file uploaded to WordPress is deleted.

I only want people who are logged in to see certain people on my site.

You can change the default privacy setting on the Options page, or override the setting on a page by page basis.

When I try to upload a file, the screen goes blank.

This is usually a timeout issue on your site. See the explanation on the upload page.

Può ricaricare un GEDCOM?

Yes. As long as the INDI ids are the same, existing records will be updated, not duplicated.
HOWEVER if your program assigns new ids to the same people, your data may become corrupt, so make sure you check.
You may also delete pages and data using the Tools->Rootspersona->Delete Pages and reload the GEDCOM.

Currently you will lose any links to pictures if you do that.

The instructions are quite hard to follow even though I can see a lot of effort has been put into this with multiple screenshots. There should be some warning before creating thousands of pages.

I was trying different plugins to read and display GEDCOM data. I had assembled a file and tried to upload it, resulting in an error. Ed gave me an early release of a new version that fixed the problem immediately.

A very good job. Thank you for this plugin 😉 Only, it lacks the possibility of translating the Months (JAN, FEB, etc.) into other languages. Maybe something like that: $dict = array( 'JAN' => __('JAN', 'rootspersona'), 'FEB' => __('FEB', 'rootspersona'), 'MAR' => __('MAR', 'rootspersona'), 'APR' => __('APR', 'rootspersona'), 'MAY' => __('MAY', 'rootspersona'), 'JUN' => __('JUN', 'rootspersona'), 'JUL' => __('JUL', 'rootspersona'), 'AUG' => __('AUG', 'rootspersona'), 'SEP' => __('SEP', 'rootspersona'), 'OCT' => __('OCT', 'rootspersona'), 'NOV' => __('NOV', 'rootspersona'), 'DEC' => __('DEC', 'rootspersona'), ); ///...///
