not using CAPS to yell at you, just to note my reply after your comments. My site was, from day 1, “locked down” so the idea of lifting that is new to me
1 – “*no login for visitors; just admin (I already have login block show to visitors)” The part in brackets seems to contradict the first part. You are NOT currently showing a login block on the home page, neither are you displaying a Login menu item, so NO-ONE can login (not even you) without manually entering /login.php after the url.
2 – “both living and dead people available to everyone” – surely not??? That means you have no privacy settings at all. Almost certainly illegal in every jurisdiction in the world. But if you want this, then just disable privacy.
>>> THE ROYALS “VITAL INFO”, IS ON WIKIPEDIA, AND PUBLICLY AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE. I’m MODIFYING NAMES, DATES AND PLACES. AND ADDING SOME WIKI IMAGES FOR MY AMUSEMENT (THEY’RE IN PUBLIC DOMAIN TOO)
I realise you are playing with an “unimportant tree”, but surely that’s no reason to ignore privacy concerns, even if its only so that you learn how to use them.
On your front page you have a statement telling viewers not to request a registration. That is not necessary. In Administration > Site administration set “Allow visitors to request account registration” to NO. Then they can’t register, and won’t see a “Request new user account” option anywhere, so the statement becomes superfluous.
>>DONE; WHEN I SEE SITES WITH LOGIN, I TEND TO THINK I CAN’T USE SO ADDED THE COMMENT; MODIFIED.
May I suggest that you think about how you would prefer your “real” site to be displayed, write those objectives down so they are clear, and use your test site and Royals data to experiment with settings that would achieve that.
>>>BECAUSE ONTARIO HAS DIFFERENT PRIVACY FOR EACH VITAL AND CENSUS, IT’S HARD FOR ME TO KNOW JUST WHAT “ASSUMED DEAD AT 120 YEARS” PRIVACY DOES IN RELATION TO MY TREE. ONTARIO ISNT THAT CUT-AND-DRY. WHILE I CAN FIND MARRIAGES AFTER 40 YEARS, I CAN’T FIND BIRTHS UNTIL AFTER 97 YEARS AND ONE DEATH IS PUBLIC AFTER 72 YEARS.
THE ROYALS IS DIFFERENT. EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT PRINCE GEORGE’S BIRTH, BUT NO, I DON’T WANT EVERYONE KNOWING ABOUT THE BIRTH OF MY 3RD COUSIN THIS YEAR.
PS: I’ll say it again, I really like kiwitrees and am glad to have switched over from webtrees.
