      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.

      I assume you are talking about the "Ancestral File Numer" that is being dumped to the gedcom... Go to TNG Admin/Custom Event Types... Edit the AFN Tag and choose ignore on import and that will prevent them from being imported in the future.

      > IN ADMIN Menu>Custom Events, do you have the OCCU set to accept? No I didn't; thank you for this tip.

      I've been using the free LDS genealogy software PAF for years. I've uploaded my GEDCOM to my TNG website and every entry and report includes LDS inputs. I'm not in the LDS church so these entries are useless and a waste of space on reports, etc. How do I remove them? I read during installation that all elements in a GEDCOM dump from a genealogy program will be pulled into TNG for me, but how do I avoid pulling the LDS entries or how do I delete them from TNG after the fact?

      Thank you Ken. I do have the data in a backup file - I simply don't have the summary table to restore that data. I did drop the tables and went thru a "full" re-install procedure in the MOD manager screen notwithstanding the above error message.  As it stands now I have four apparently, fully restored tables: cp_base, cp_data, cp_tabel, cp_link, but no cp_summary.  Note the misspelling of "table" as it appears in my phpMyAdmin, irrespective of its possible role in the error msg or failure to create cp_summary.  I would correct it but I have a way of ruining relationship tables...:)  It is misspelled the same way on the live site. Safe travels. Regis

      Can't remember if this is an old mod I forgot to update or a default feature, but thumbnails are not showing for my timeline events.

      Any idea how to correct this...other than editing each event by hand???
