Hi Ron,

I think an easier way to avoid including the footnotes is to just not upload the html file that contains them. I forget what it's called now, but it's something like "sources.htm". Even better, is probably to replace that file with a one of the same name that just has a message asking people to send an email request if they're interested in the sources.

I've not used the automatic uploading button from within UFT, so I'm not sure if it allows you to edit the files before they're uploaded. However, lots of places offer free web space now, including RootsWeb which offers unlimited space, so I see little reason to hassle with the problems I've read about concerning the UFT user web pages.

Also, to those of you who don't include the addresses and phone numbers of living people who are sources of data, where do you store that information? I was just noticing that the "privacy" button is available in the source transcript box. I guess that information could be entered there. At this point it would take me forever to edit my sources, though.
