I am using RM 7.5.5 and the 'Generate Files for a Website' in Rootsmagic 6 Style. I am using my own website.
I really like the format used in the website created and would prefer to stick with the RM option (rather than switching to something else based on a GEDCOM file) if at all possible.
The RM process generates a large number of files - typically about 12,000 files in several folders for 8,000 names.
I was hoping to update the website content fairly regularly - say once every month or two.
With a relatively slow internet connection (in Australia) uploading this number of files is very time consuming - typically many hours. So I was looking for ways to minimise the number of files that need to be transferred each time (ie new and updated files only).
I then discovered that all the files appear to get new names and dates each time the site gets generated - even if the content for a specific person hasn't changed. So any updating process will not work. Also as the names are changing any sync process (between PC and website) will also not work.
So to perform a website update I have to first delete all the existing website files and then copy all the newly created files - at least a day's work each time (which is not practical).
Am I missing something? Does anybody have any suggestions on how to easily maintain a website? Thanks for your help
