      A few months back I highlighted a few of Jim Benedict’s TNG “how to” articles (specifically the ones relating to GEDCOM imports & exports). Now I’m going to mention a few more that spotlight the new features in TNG 11. Even if you’ve had version 11 for a while now, these posts may help you get to know these features a little better. Thanks Jim!
      TNG v.11: TNG and DNA Tests
      Managing DNA results, and linking your test results to the people in your trees.
      TNG v.11: Admin menu now shows category totals
      A better way to keep track of all your totals (people, families, media, etc.).
      TNG v.11: Heat Maps
      A thematic method of visualizing the global locations of your surnames and places.
      TNG v.11: Fan Charts
      A colorful new way to display your ancestral tree, with your family roots laid out in ever widening arches.
      TNG v.11: Data validation
      Using TNG to spot possible problems in your data.

      A lot of people have asked me lately how they’d go about moving their TNG site to a new site without losing any data. In a nutshell, here’s what you’d have to do:
      1. Back up your TNG data, either with TNG (under Admin/Utilities) or with phpMyAdmin (on your site control panel or “cPanel”; recommended for larger sites). The TNG backup creates a series of .bak files in the “backups” folder on your site. If you use phpMyAdmin, you should end up with a large .sql file on your computer.
      2. Download all the TNG files and folders from your old site. If you used TNG to do the backup, the backup files will be included here.
      3. Upload all the same files to your new site.
      4. Use the “Express” option on the readme.html page on your new site to install TNG again. You might need to create a new MySQL database, and the installation will ask you for the connection info. After creating the TNG tables, you can skip the rest of the installation.
      5. Now restore your data on the new site. If you backed up with TNG, restore the data from Admin/Utilities. If from phpMyAdmin, go there on your new site and import the .sql file you created earlier.
      That’s it. Now you should be up and running on the new site with all the same data, including user accounts.

      Hi manofmull,  Thank you for your answer but this is not what I meant. I did as you wrote but this translate only the headers not the content as Google translate does. I put in the home page the   Google translate script with 6 languages. i like to do the same on the pages.  
    • manofmull
      You can add other languages to your website. Admin / Languages >> Add New Language (add English UTF-8 + any other required language UTF-8) Setup >> Configuration >> General Settings/Language/Dynamic Language Change = allow This will allow visitors to view your site in their chosen language from a small drop-down menu on your homepage.

      Hi, My web is in English but I know that not every member of my tree can read English so I want to add Google translate to the pages. I am working with template 13.  Can you help me by letting me know where should I add it. I want to put it under the bookmark and print icon (see enclosed). what is the file name that is relevant to configure the Google translate script. I Put it on the home page but couldn't find where to put it on the other pages. http://new.myroots.co.il/index.php

      Sounds like your Root Path is no longer the same and therefore not the correct path. Go to Admin > Setup > General Settings and expand the Paths and Folders section and then clear the Root Path and save the settings. Re-open the General Settings.  It should now have the correct path.  Save the settings again.

      Was running version 10.1.1 on Windows 2012 with MySql version 5.6 and PHP 5.3. Moved to Windows Server 2016, MySQL version 5.7, PHP 7,1 Index page is displaying perfectly but when I click on any of the links - login, search, etc. - I just get a page showing the name of the site name at the top and nothing else - no login boxes or search boxes etc. The database seems fine, I can login using Workbench using the site user name and password. I tried the readme file but when I click on Set Permissions or Save and Verify, I get a "you must log in first" error. Any suggestions?
