Overview

The File menu includes commands related to creating, opening, and saving GedSite files; making sites; and exiting the program.

New... (Ctl+N)

Closes the current GedSite file, if any, and opens a standard file dialog to create a new GedSite file.

Open... (Ctl+O)

Closes the current GedSite file, if any, and opens a standard file dialog to open an existing GedSite file.

Recent Files >

The Recent Files sub-menu contains a list of recently-opened GedSite files. Selecting one of the file names opens that file.

Save (Ctl+S)

Saves the current GedSite file.

Save As...

Saves a copy of the current GedSite file under a new name, copies the contents of the Input (-i) folder, and creates a new Output (-o) folder.

Use the Save As... command with caution. If you save over an existing GedSite file, GedSite will delete the contents of the existing Input (-i) and Output (-o) folders.

Close

Closes the current GedSite file.

Reload Data File (Ctl+G)

Reloads the data from the current data file.

For GEDCOM input files, use this command if you have changed the file by re-exporting from your genealogy application while GedSite is running.

For TMG input files, use this command if you have changed the data by opening the project in TMG while GedSite is running.

Make Site (Ctl+M)

Makes the site according to the current setting of the properties and stores the resulting files in the Output (-o) folder.

You can stop GedSite in the middle of making a site by clicking the [Cancel] button in the background process progress window. This is useful if you have a large site and you want to stop the process to make a change to one of the options.

Browse Site (Ctl+B)

Opens the main page of the site in the default web browser.

Make CSS (F2)

Updates the stylesheets associated with the site and stores the resulting CSS files in the Output (-o) folder. Handy for when you only change Stylesheet properties or Layouts; no need to rebuild the entire site.

Exit

Closes the current GedSite file, if any, and exits the program.
