If you need to upgrade your PGV installation, then hopefully you will also consider that you can conveniently move to webtrees with our PGV-to-webtrees wizard. It will move ALL your users, news, favorites and family trees to webtrees in a matter of minutes.

Good morning!

Im PGV it was possible to set for each user whether they were allowed to edit their own account information, this was done in the user administration for each user individually. In webtrees this option seems to have vanished. Has it gone, or is it just hidden somewhere else?

Ah, I see. I had always assumed it allows users to edit their own information within the family tree, for example when they move house they can add a new address or the like. Is that possible somehow, without giving that user global editor privileges?

To edit the genealogy data, you must give the user edit permissions.
Edit permission means that they can edit all the records (that they can view).

1) as an administrator, you can review all their edits before they are approved.
2) most users do not update data. You will have very little to review...
