Hi Mike,

I've tried to run your plugin v2.9 'Hyperlink/Text' tab against my own database and also the standard 'Family Historian Sample Project' supplied. I'm running the latest release FH version 6.2.5.


COM exception:(.srclibrarytLuaCOM.cpp,394):A connection with the server could not be established

stack traceback:
[C]: in function 'Send'
[string "C:ProgramDataCalico PieFamily Historian..."]:3025: in function 'DownloadIcons'
[string "C:ProgramDataCalico PieFamily Historian..."]:3366: in function 'IntImproveHTML'
[string "C:ProgramDataCalico PieFamily Historian..."]:4599: in function <[string "C:ProgramDataCalico PieFamily Historian..."]:4596>

[string "C:ProgramDataCalico PieFamily Historian..."]:4806: in function 'GUI_MainDialogue'
[string "C:ProgramDataCalico PieFamily Historian..."]:20994: in main chunk


All run attempts give the below fatal error diagnostics, and the plugin stops. Any ideas/fixes under FH 6.2.5. ?

Ian, it would be better to post that kind of comment in the FHUG Forum "Plugin Discussions".

The COM exception indicates there is no Internet connection to the FHUG web site. So either your Internet link was down, or the FHUG web site was down.

Update. Workaround solution to "connection with server cannot be established" as suggested by Mike is now documented on FHUG Forum 'Plugin Discussions'.

This Plugin 'Improve Website CD or DVD HTML 2.9' now works fine for me; and functionally improves a FH generated Webite HTML exactly as described.

Now rated excellent !

I'm not sure I understand what this plug-in would do beyond the built-in export GEDCOM feature.  I am running FH v6.2, and am very new to FH, so maybe its just my ignorance.

Very handy.  Thank you Mike.
