      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.

      Please help me. I just bought TNG. I integrated the site with wordpress. http://mysite/geanology, sometimes works and sometimes does not. (integrated with wordpress) http://mysite/tng, works. (not integrated with wordpress) Even when it  is working, in "http://mysite.com/genealogy" wordpress does not integrate, but  in "http://mysite.com/genealogy/surnames.php" wordpress integrates(I can see the header of wordpress) Thanks Gen

      I use https (via CloudFlare, free), this looks to be something different. Not sure which is better, perhaps both are good in their own way. I guess any additional security can only be a good thing.

      Hi All, It seems a little strange to me why SSL is not a standard feature for TNG websites or at the very least a recommended step considering the sensitive data that many of us have on our sites. Access to most if not all TNG sites require a login which would suggest that most of us do think we have data worth keeping secure. https://www.sslshopper.com/why-ssl-the-purpose-of-using-ssl-certificates.html Your thoughts? Necessary or not? Can anybody recommend a provider and/or an installation process?? This is what I got from Simply Hosting (who I understand can do the install)... Maybe we could do a group deal with SH but I'm not to sure how this could be negotiated

      Use Firefox or Chrome Inspector to find the style name and put your overrides in mytngstyle.css in your template folder.  See Overriding Template colors in the TNG Wiki

      Thanks for the pointer, but I would be nearly starting from scratch, I give it some thought tho.
