    Nigel,

    1. When I log on to my site I am sent to the “John Doe” default. Uploading new gedcom does not help. Still get sent to “John Doe”. I’m stuck.

    2. I’d like to reload all my media to the site. Can I do this on my own or is this something you need to do?

    Thanks for your help.

    Re 1 : you have a GEDCOM file already on the server, but it isn’t imported into the database. I have now completed that for you. It replaces the default John Doe data on import, so is now accessible.

    Re 2 : now that the data is in place it is fully connected to your tree, so do you still need to reload all 1000+ objects? Can you explain further you goal here?

    Thanks for your help. I don’t need to reload all my media. I’ve been running Kiwi on a localhost server and I’ve added images to the local site that are not on your server, but the difference is not great. I’ll just upload those images through the normal upload function. However, this does raise another question. Have you thought about providing the ability to cut/paste, drag/drop images directly to an individual’s record (event, fact, etc.) from the user’s computer without having to first upload it and then link it?

    No change required. Apart from the “drag/drop” bit you are describing the normal way to add images.

    To add them just to the individual, do it on their “Album” tab.
    To add them to a fact or event, edit the event and use the “Add media” option.

    In both cases the upload and linkage is done in a single process.

    The Album tab also provides an option (among the list triggered by pointing / hovering over the image title) to “Manage links”, i.e. link to more individuals or remove some links.
