If your GEDCOM file already contains links to images and other files, you can choose to include links to these in the web pages (see How files linked from the GEDCOM are processed). You can also use the program to add directly links to files on your computer or to web pages or other resources on the Internet.
You can do this either when initially creating a set of web pages from a GEDCOM file, or later when updating the web pages. First, use the set of indexes in the left-hand section of the program to find the record you want to add a link to. This could be an individual, a family, a note, a source, a repository or a record of another type. Then right click on the index entry for the record. You should see a dialog box that will allow you to link files to this record.
There are two ways of adding links:
When you have finished selecting the files for this record, and editing their details, click "OK".
The links will appear in the text web pages as a sequence of blue icons immediately underneath the heading for the record. Each icon indicates the type of file that the link leads to, and the chosen caption will be displayed when the visitor hovers the cursor over the icon.
The program copies linked files on your hard disc into a subfolder of the folder to which the web pages are saved, called mm (short for "multimedia"). When you upload the web pages to your website, this folder and its contents must be uploaded together with the web pages.
As far as possible, these links will be automatically maintained by the program when the pages are updated. During the updating process, links can be added, deleted and edited in the same way. When new links are added, the files will be copied into the mm subfolder and will have their "Modified" time updated. So when uploading the new web pages to your website, the only linked files in the mm folder that need to be uploaded are those marked as freshly modified (the same as for the web pages in the main folder).
