Invalid RM Website Help Text Needs Changing

13 May 2017 - 04:08 AM

The HELP text, if chosen for a MyRootsMagic web site, includes an invalid line.

Specifically in regards to the Name Index, and is as follows:


Name Index

Clicking "Name Index" on the left side of the site will open a list of names on the site.

  • You can click the letters along the top of the index to see surnames that start with that letter.


There are no letters to click!  This needs to be updated.

And instead there needs to be some HELP TEXT that details the use of the FIND box that is generated.


Thank you,

MyRootsMagic Home Page - extra text box please

03 May 2017 - 01:49 PM

I love your MyRootsMagic web publisher!  It is great.  Would it be possible to have one more text box available in the Settings, Home Page tab?  Something for text that would appear between Links and Contact on the published home page?


Right now we are limited to either having the picture first then Introduction, or Introduction then picture, after which the Links (Index of Names, Pedigree Chart) appear and then my Contact info.  That's great!


But it would be nice to be able to add more text after the Links.  Maybe slightly smaller font (optional).

Something for additional notes like:  "New James SMITH photos added today", or "New bloodline discovered - see xxxx" or any kind of note different from the Introduction and in an expandable text box to keep a running blog.

Web Site Title problem

28 April 2017 - 08:36 PM

Every time I update my MyRootsMagic.com web site settings, the TITLE always reverts to my original set up, even though I have updated the TITLE every time (hundreds!).  So if I do not notice this when I update the data, my TITLE is screwed up on every update.


This applies to both the TITLE on my first site.rootsmagic.com/xxx site, and to any subsequent sites that I include a link in the EXTRA LINKS tab back to my original site URL.  The TITLE there reverts too when I am updating my Settings.


This is a major pain when all I want to do is update the data, especially if I miss retyping the TITLE in either of these places before a Save.


Thank you,

Contact pop-up link when publishing MyRootsMagic web site

26 April 2017 - 11:55 PM

When publishing a web site to MyRootsMagic.com please allow for the creation of a "Contact" link in the left links sidebar.


I noticed that my contact information is not visible on the immediate home screen when a photo is used unless visitors scroll down, which they might not.  And it will also act as a quick link when users need to contact me.


It would be best if the visitor would get a pop-up with the contact info from wherever they are on my site without leaving that page.


And I must say that this web publishing service, and the ease of creating a web site and updating it from Roots Magic is fantastic!


thank you,

Can Roots Magic users expect a special discount pricing offer from Ancestry to entice us to sign up with the new compatibility on the horizon?
