  • Link to External Site for Results Page

    Where in the project configuration page can I specify an external URL for the y-DNA results? I have managed about a dozen surname-based DNA projects for 10+ years using WorldFamilies.net to display my spreadsheets, but that site is now defunct due to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

    I have moved the spreadsheets (in html format) to a private hosting service and would like to allow people to link to them from the project home page at FamilyTreeDNA. I understand that I need to abide by the Group Administrator Terms regarding Externally Hosted Group Project Pages.

    To insert a link to an external site

    1. Type the word/words you want to serve as the link & then select them.

    2. Click the insert/edit link icon in the toolbar (2nd link from the right).

    3. Type the complete url of the link -- example: http://mailinglists.rootsweb.com/listindexes/

    4. You may have to type .htm or .html at the end like so -- example:
    http://helmdon.com/history/story_of_stuchbury.htm[/url]

    Try it and see which works.

      While logged in as an Admin, view your My Groups page. On the left side there is a list of items. One says "Links". Use that one to post your link. It worked for me.
