Ancestral Sources Data Entry ~ Frequently Asked Questions

Why are some data entry buttons greyed-out?

Ancestral Sources is a free ancillary program under development by a member of the FHUG.

Some of its planned features have not yet been implemented, so the associated buttons are disabled.

In due course these buttons will become active in both this Plugin and Ancestral Sources itself.

What causes "The Internet appears to be inaccessible" message?

This Plugin checks the Plugin Store for a later version via the Internet. If there is no connection, this message is produced.

While there is no connection, the message is inhibited by all Plugins with this feature, until none of them have been run for 10 hours, or one of them detects the connection is restored.

Also the online Help & Advice pages will be inaccessible.
