Hi there

i have a customer looking to build something for plants and their family tree if you can call it that / lineage.

How hard would it be to use this for an alternate purpose like that or is it hard linked to genealogy sites for data etc

Jamroom is designed to be customizable. Genosis is a set of extra modules and a custom skin built on top of jamroom so its customizable too.

The biggest issue you will have will be learning how the platform works because there is a learning curve. In order to do it you will need to look at code.

As with anything there is a trade-off. If we try to make things easier for non-developers to do, then things get more complex for developers. Jamroom comes from being a system for developers and the non-developer stuff is added on as extras, so if you're coming from the perspective of using it as a development tool integrated in a web developers work flow then its just a question of getting things arranged how you want them.

If the question comes from a "Can I change some settings and have this work?" perspective then im not sure, maybe.

Genosis isn't hard linked to any genealogy sites so could run 'stand-alone'.
If plant genetics/linage have a similar structury to human family trees it might just be a case of change Jamroom language strings to suit.

Thanks for the replies, i will test it out on the dev server.
My main concern is that it has to be linked to a 3rd party genealogy site or system to search for data.

There is no look-up functionality in Genosis script. You can import GEDCOM files, but it does not connect to any external database to pull in data. Unless you want it to, and then you'd need to build that module.
