rootsPersona Plugin for WordPress
For Tech Tuesday, I am going to review a wonderful family tree and report generator for wordpress. It is called Rootspersona, and I love it. I had been looking for an easy to use GEDCOM to family tree generator. The ease of use of this one makes it great.
After you install the plugin, you will find Rootspersona on both the Tools and Settings buttons in the Dashboard. The Tools menu for Rootspersona is the interface at which you upload your GEDCOM, add uploaded persons, upload missing evidence pages, and so on. It is what runs in the background of the program. The Settings menu is where you go to set up privacy settings and customize the generated report styles.
When you visit the “home” page for rootspersona, they have very good support. The developer of the plugin follows the threads on comments closely and does his best to answer any concern. When I first installed the plugin, I had my tech savvy husband help me and he found the information on some of the coding to be easily explained enough he could teach me very, very basic programming explanations from it. Alas, programming logic escapes me, but I at least found I understood the very basic command lines.
Currently, on my header under the Rootspersona Tree page, I only have my 4 great-grandfathers listed. This was the way I decided to proceed, but you have the option of having everyone in your tree on that page. I will slowly add people as I feature them on the blog.
If you are looking for a good Family Tree plugin for your blog, I hope you consider this plug in.
