Start page

Starting page for GeneWeb.

GeneWeb offers a general purpose web based interface to its users. Any standard browser can be used to access a GeneWeb base, either on your Personal computer or on a remote server.

After a fresh install and a launch of the appropriate start command (depending on your environment, see xxx), a simple startup page will propose to:

  • open a GeneWeb base
  • open the GeneWeb management tool

Welcome page

Welcome page for a base.

Opening a base will display a welcome page organized into:

  • a search area used to explore the base
  • a tool area for reports and tools

Individual pages display personal data associated with a person in a format which greatly depends on the template you have chosen. Most of the data on the page is "clickable" and will follow a link to another individual, or trigger the display of a list. Tools are provided in a format which depends on the GeneWeb version you are using:

  • GeneWeb 5.02: a tool-box at the bottom of the page
  • GeneWeb 6.08 and later: a pull-down cascaded menu bar at the top of the page

Update pages

All data capture is performed through pages containing HTML forms organized into:

  • zones (one person, one event, a note).
  • fields (one or more lines where text can be entered).
  • tick-marks
  • buttons
  • radio buttons
  • pull-down menus
