Exciting Big Changes at Tpstry.com
Wow, what a busy summer. You may not have heard much from Tpstry lately, but that’s because we’ve been locked in a room making big changes to the site. We’re going crazy with cabin fever so it’s time to show everyone what we’ve been working on.
So without further ado, go checkout the updated Tpstry website.
Probably the biggest change that you will notice is that where the old site dealt just with family memories as one large group, Tpstry now breaks down your memories into smaller groups. This way you can have one Tpstry for your family history, one for your daughter’s birthday party, another for a vacation, you get the idea. By breaking down the memories into smaller groups, they become more manageable and easier to share.
We’ve also changed the Family Memories Website into a more concise, interactive postcard-like graphic. These graphics are simple to share and easy to customize. Each Tpstry automatically gets one of these graphics, which is themed based upon the theme of the Tpstry. Plus, each Tpstry graphic has it’s own set of sharing permissions. So you can share your family history Tpstry with one set of friends and share your daughter’s birthday party Tpstry with another set of friends.
One change that might affect some users is that we are going to be discontinuing support for GEDCOM import and export. As Tpstry continues to evolve, the data collected does not fit the GEDCOM file format nicely. Through the month of October we will keep the old website available at http://gedcom.tpstry.com where you can log in and export your information in GEDCOM format. Please note though, all your data has been moved to the new site and if you change any data on the old site, those changes will not be reflected on the new site.
We are so excited for everyone to start using our new site. Please stay tuned, as we will be adding more Tpstry themes soon. And as always, we’d love to hear what you think about the new site: what works, what doesn’t, what Tpstry theme would you like to see. You can reach us through Facebook, Twitter or our contact form.
