      TNG 11 is almost here! The currently estimated release date is about March 16 or 17, 2016. This major upgrade includes nearly a hundred fixes, enhancements and new features. Here’s a summary of the most significant changes:
      DNA: Aid your research by keeping track of DNA tests taken by the people in your tree. Enter the specifics once and link them to those affected. Fan Charts: A fan-oriented chart of ancestors can now be displayed for each person in your tree. Data Validation: Several preconfigured validation reports will help you spot potential errors in your data. New Design: Another new template has been added. Family Chart: This view shows a person’s spouse, children and parents all together on one page in graphical fashion. Mobile-Friendly: More improvements here will make your site even more usable on mobile devices. Administration: Enhancements to the Admin menu show quick totals for all data categories, plus an “Important Tasks” area to remind administrators of items that need attention. Heat Maps: Color codes on the Places, Surnames and Search Results pages now show the global distribution of surnames and places. Search: A Google search page now allows you to search across your entire site using Google’s indexes. Timeline: The Simile Timeline layout has been redesigned to be more readable, with separate bands for family and general events. Compatibility: Pro-active changes will make sure TNG remains compatible with the latest versions of PHP. You’ll be able to get the upgrade at a discount ($14.99) by going back to your previous downloads page. If you’ve lost the URL or access info, send me a message at darrin@lythgoes.net and I’ll send it to you again. If you only purchased TNG or the v10 upgrade recently (in the past 6 months), you’ll be eligible to get the upgrade for free.
      Also take note that Simply Hosting does not install upgrades. A helpful 15-minute video will be available to walk you through the process, but there will also be an option to pay an extra $15 to have the upgrade installed for you. If you’re doing the upgrade yourself, take a minute to review the post here from the v10 release on helpful tips for a successful upgrade.

      Hello, Upgrading is usually a smooth process, but for some reason upgrading to 11.0.1 is giving me some issues.  I thought things were fine until I tried to add a cemetery and a warning box popped up saying the cemetery couldn't be found, it happens with every cemetery I try to add.  Finally I got another error message saying "This could be due to a setup issue, an incomplete upgrade or a program bug."  And that I may need to contact TNG support.  I thought I would check here first to see if someone may have gotten a similar message and resolution. Thank you for any help, Darrin Dutton

      Roger -- Thank you very much!  That works perfectly.  I would never have found the proper place or way to do this. Many thanks!  Cheers == Bob

      Open up the cust_text.php file(s) for the languages you're using (e.g. English and English-UTF8 in the "languages" folder) and add this line $text['features'] = "GUIDES"; should do it. Roger

      Thanks for the response. It appears that my internal number on this tree is significantly different. What I've been doing is exporting my FTM tree to FTM 2012 format and then bringing it into FTM 2012 where I export it as a 5.5 GEDCOM and then convert it to TNG acceptable format using the GEDCOM conversion mod. It works well. Now to get back on track, I just need to clear the media tables and start fresh. . BTW, my family is also from the Fox River Valley (East Dundee and Elgin)  and also from around  Wauconda in Illinois.Bangs Lake is named after one of my relatives.

      John, It depends on how your media links were on your previous tree online (and the paths they use)  and whether there are media links in the FTM Gedcom that just need to be changed from ftm/media/documents/   to tng_root/documents If all your documents are in a folder called documents and all your media collections items are in folders that are exactly the same as the directory folder names, it will probably be alot easier. I know thats not an answer, but you need to explain what you have..... in order to know how much work or if there could be "batch" processes created to ease the relinking.
