In Topic: FamilySearch Sources and Discussion Issues

Well, that was rich. RootsMagic worked well with Family Tree. Family Tree changed the API. They did not announce that it would no longer work with RootsMagic. They left it to me to discover that FamilyTree was no longer accepting sources. Since they were once compatible and they were no longer compatible, of course it was the duty of RootsMagic to change its software and issue a new rev that works with the new API. Maybe FamilyTree should tell RootsMagic next time, eh mates?

An excellent way to test any consumer software is to go to a day labor pool and have a private chat with the dispatcher. Then announce that you need all the people who know anything about computers to approach the desk. Then announce that all the remaining people are hired for this one-day job testing software against the instruction book. See where they get stuck.

FamilySearch does have its issues these days. It abruptly stopped accepting sources to individuals from RootsMagic, but continues to accept sources for couples. Whilst adding information through the web interface, I see the "HELP OTHERS" icon and when I click it, it logs me out.

It is past the close of business Friday on the West Coast, and the problem persists. As Renee Zamora notes on the other thread, RM is in touch with FSFT on this. If the problem is on the FSFT server it isn't a RM malfunction.

It is Monday afternoon in Utah. FamilyTree still does not accept sources to individuals and does still accept sources to couple relationships. Any news yet?
