      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.

      Template 10 - Features Box
      Merv, Thanks for your suggestions! The first thing I don't really understand is why many of the elements of template 10 can be rendered in all of the languages on offer, but the box with the feature links remains a plain text box. I reckon that's something that I should address to Darrin directly for future fixes. It would be very helpful to my solving the problem on my own if I knew where to retrieve the data for the $tmp['t10_featurelinks'] variable. I might be able to save blocks of text of all languages on offer there and then have the correct block of text chosen by filtering using the languageID  variable.

      Hi Roy, Thanks for that.  I will place a hint along these lines on our home page, so that casual visitors can find their way.  From Don

      I agree.  I did implement this in my search bar on the photo page of my site early last year. Same thought process.  I never did finish my site but plan to get back at it again.   You can try it here:   Test Auto Populate
