Web Family Tree

December 26, 2007 by Peter Moylan

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Peter Moylan

Web Family Tree (WFT) has just been upgraded to version 1.4. You can get it from
http://www.pmoylan.org/pages/os2/wft.html
or ftp://ftp.pmoylan.org/software/wft14.zip
or search for "wft" on Hobbes.
http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/cgi-bin/h-search?key=wft

The main new feature is the ability to display photographs, but there are several other improvements.

WFT is a freeware application to display your family tree as a set of web pages. If you want to see a demonstration, look at my own family tree at http://www.pmoylan.org. This web site also contains an on-line manual for WFT. The source code is available separately, for those who want it, from
any of the three download locations mentioned above.

As with all reputable software, de-installation is easy if you decide you don't want to keep it.

Although an OS/2 web server is a prerequisite, you don't need a public web site if you don't want it. If you don't have a domain name or a fixed IP address, or if you simply want to keep your WFT pages private, you can still run a web server that responds only to the loopback address (localhost = [127.0.0.1]). The web server that I recommend (web/2 by dink) is elementary to install even by novices. If you prefer a different OS/2 web server, WFT will work with that too.

LIST OF CHANGES (since version 1.2)

Version 1.4 (25 December 2007)
Added fixup.cmd to the distribution.
Added language files for Dutch (non-expert translation!).
More informative web page title.
Provision for optional photographs in individual
records and family records.
Added a "display all databases" option.
Added cache control for faster loading.
Argument separator changed to '&', although ';' is
still allowed for backwards compatibility.
Added an "alias" field.
Added the Ged2HTML utility.
Minor efficiency: deleted trailing spaces in names.
Reduced the size of the partial tree for ease of
copying the web page into a two-column printed page.

Version 1.3
This version was never released.
