      TNG 11: Feature Preview
      By Darrin Lythgoe in TNG News 0
      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.

      Malware attack on Wordpress and TNG
      amwaytoday.ru Few days ago, my email address, used in website got hacked, producing 100's spam emails. Fortunately, ISP's SPAM filter blocked emails. It also blocked me using it. The SPAM generator was traced to a rogue file, press50.php, in tng/templates/template11/ folder. Complete folder had to be removed to stop SPMs being generated. 
      Here's one of the entries in  error.log file generated in the folder:
        The file would not let me download it to have look and was deleted. That stopped generation of SPAM emails. The clue was in requests made whilst loading the url. One of the requests was to http://www.patlandy.pairserver/ which not in my list. I also noticed that a request was being made to amwaytoday.ru. I understand that malware attacks a website by installing a file named jquery.min.php in ./ js folder.
      Then various Wordpress sites are hacked by injecting script in theme's header.php file. 
        I removed the above script from my, all, wordpress, themes' header.php files.
      AND I have installed Sucuri Security plugin for WP. I would be very interested to know how a TNG template folder got infected.

      Thumbnails generated recursively
      Do you have a / before "thumbs/th_"?

      I don't want to try on my site for fear of creating a mess of new folders, but it seems like your indicated setting shouldn't work as you're expecting because of a missing leading / ? Roger

      Thumbnails generated recursively
      Yes, this is exactly what I'm doing. But Jay in previous mail suggested some additional settings I couldn't find. I want to have thumbnails placed in a sub-directory "thumbs" under "photo" directory. To make this, I used to define a Thumbs Prefix: thumbs/th_ But now it seems that TNG attempts to generate thumbnails recursively, i.e, after generating thumbnails of photos in photo/thumbs *next time* it also generates thumbnails of previously generated thumbnails and put them into /photo/thumbs/thumbs etc. mjaro

      Thumbnails generated recursively
      In TNG Admin ------> Setup ------> Media there's a place to save a  "Thumbs Prefix". If you have a folder path in there - e.g. on my site I have "/zzzthumbs", it will create the thumbnails in a subfolder of the folder the item is in. Roger

      Location Names
      Jean, My understanding is that the mod should NOT be required siknce tthe TNG import should have been fixed to handle the situation of _PRIM media attached to events. Please upgrade to the latest TNG version and if event photos are still an issue, please contact Darrin.
