I am wondering how to delete a web site I created using the Roots Magic 6 files?  I am now on version 7 and would like to eliminate the older site.  I know the old site address and have my sign on and password, but how do I access the administrative functions?  I do not see an editing function under the "Internet" tab in Roots Magic 7.

You can transfer it to RootsMagic 7 and then delete it. 


To transfer the RM6 MyRootsMagic over to RM7 go to Internet>MyRootsMagic (Publish Online)
Login or create a new account.
Click the Settings button at the top
Select "Sign into MyRootsMagic online"
Login to the My RootsMagic Account page
Near the very bottom on the page click on the link "Where did my site(s) go?" It will then walk you through transferring the RM6 sites.

Once you have transferred it you can't edit it but can delete it. Then republish using RM7 with the same name. The URL will be slightly different.

Thanks very much.  With a little fumbling on my part, that worked.  I really appreciate the help.

I cannot help but observe that the process is a bit arcane, so thanks for stepping in.
