Thanks to the two more of you for your responses.
First of all, you can display images on RootsWeb (World Connect) tree pages by uploading the picture to a RootsWeb "free page" and then typing in the code given you in your FTM program in the place you wish the picture to appear.
That typed in code will lead to the picture on your RootsWeb (World Connect) t"free page" uploaded photo list and thenon to your RootsWeb tree,
There are detailed instructions on how to do this on the RootsWeb help pages starting withhttp://accounts.rootsweb.ancestry.com/index.cgi?op=show&...
My problem is that for many years I have built and regularly added to such a tree on RootsWeb at http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&d...
and if you follow the link you can see the pictures.
I built this tree using various versions of Family tree Maker software uploading Gedcoms from the software to the RootsWeb tree.. I had no problems until this October when a Gedcom upload from the version I was then using, FTM Version 11, resulted in uploading the additions allright but at the same time wiping out all the pictures on the tree.
A RootsWeb tech was unable to find a reason for this to have happened and knew Version 11 was no longer supported by Ancestry.co,, suggested I upgrade to FTM 2014. I did so, and at the same time opened a new Ancestry.com tree by downloading a Gedcom to it from my old RootsWeb tree.
Since then I have tried to upload additions and corrections now being made to the new Ancestry.com tree to the old RottsWeb tree dozens, if not hundreds of times all resulting in the pictures being wiped out on the RootsWeb tree except in one case, where I uploaded a direct copy of the RootsWeb tree loaded into FTM 2014 with one small correction, adding the word (NOTES) to one of the many names, making a Gedcom of that and uploading that to the RootsWeb Tree and that time, with that one small correction, the pictures didn't disappear.
So it can be done, as it had been without a problem for so many years.
As I say, I have tried many times with varying amounts of corrections but been unable, so far to find the exact number the determines whether it will wipe out all the pictures or not.
So my problem is, it works with a very small correction but I can't make Gedcoms every time I make such small changes. How do I get the Gedcom uploads to work with large changes as they always did before?
Has anybody else run into this problem? How did they resolve it?
I've tried asking for Ancestry.com tech help but the minute I mention the word RootsWeb, they send the message back to RootsWeb. RootsWeb has tried very hard to help me but have no further immediate answers.
Am I going to have to abandon this RootsWeb tree or leave it up as is with no further additions or corrections and perhaps a note on the top of each page urging readers to visit my new Ancestry.com tree for anything found since 10/26/13?
I will appreciate any suggestions or advice.
