    question on importing a Gedcom

    Hi Ken, this is very weird... It's what I did last time, and all my places got "replaced" so I had to start all over geocoding them and adding place levels. I took the risk and did a "replace all data" again yesterday, and it seems to have worked fine. Yay. Now I have another problem. All sources and the media belonging to them are messed up. I double checked, and my primary database is correct, as well as the gedcom I imported. Below a screenshot of one of the many many examples. Natalia Verdonck gets the sources she needs, but added to that also some of the images belonging to other sources (in this case Charlotte and Elsie Louise Graham). I my assumption correct that, just like the places, TNG keeps the old sources and media tables, and when I import just adds to them? Meaning that if my source in the new import has a new number, it doesn't replace the previous source with that same number but combines both? Is the solution to delete the sources table before importing a gedcom? Thanks again for your help and sorry for my many questions... I realise that TNG was conceived as a stand alone program, and not only for displaying purposes as I am using it... Regards, Tom

  4. Boomer Chris is right that you have I5 (eye5) inserted twice in your screenshot. If you change SCHNEIDER to I6 (eye6 and save), this might correct the problem Michael
  5. The person ID for each side is the same and, to me, doesn't look to be in the correct format for TNG
  6. I just began a TNG version of a website I've run for many years using another product which has become discontinued. Everything went pretty smoothly given the lack of any manual. I'm usingVerion 12 with template 18. My page so far is ar dreifussbros.com/TNG/index.php. I believe I downloaded everything as per instruction and loaded a GEDOM file successfully. In other words, I can successfully earch the site and see names, places, dates and other data. However, the data is not displayed upon clicking the resulting webpage links in the toolbar (originally "Dad's Side" and Mom's side. I get empty pedigree tables without any of my data. I uploaded a screenshot of the template settings I used here. Does anyone have any troubleshooting suggestions?

  8. I would like this too. It could be a future enhancement or a mod. Denton
  9. If this has been addressed I can't find it and I apologize in advance. I have tried to determine if "media upload" would work but I'm not sure it will do what I am hoping. Maybe there is a built-in function already or perhaps a MOD of some sort but again, can't find - I want to add an link to my drop down lists (available only to registered users) that would allow them to upload ANY file (except the obvious extensions like .js, .exe, .htm, etc) and have that file land inside a "secure" folder on my server so that only I may retrieve it either on line or via my ftp client. I'm not looking for an interface to TNG, rather I want to allow someone who has a password (that I've already approved) to "click to upload" a file such as a photo, or a scan from a birth or death certificate, or even a small gedcom. I'd like to limit the size of the potential upload as well to maybe 15Mb or more if necessary. And it would even be nice to have a short form they could fill out telling me what it is they are uploading. I could make the form but don't want to reinvent the wheel if it's already been done by someone before me. It would be nice to have a success alert telling them their files have been successfully transferred as well. Anybody with any ideas? I'll take them I know there are third-party offerings such as Dropbox but I really don't want to use that unless I have to. Thanks Larry
  10. Thanks Kare, i will have a look! This mod is exactly what i was looking for.
  11. Install the «Show nickname» mod and control how the nicknames are displayed....
  12. Thanks. It is a search enhancement, and a norm in genealogical record keeping. Personal i do not like the way it is made visible/presented in the searchresults screen, like in the picture i have attached: e.g. van Seeventer, Alberdina “Dina” Probably van Seeventer, Alberdina (Dina) would have been nicer for me.
  13. Differentiating a nickname from proper given names is the norm in genealogical record keeping and using quotation marks to offset the accepted method, or using the term aka which can be quite cumbersome.

    question on importing a Gedcom

    Tom, If you primary genealogy database on your desktop, the simplest solution is to use "Replace All data". TNG does NOT delete places that contain geocodes nor places that are shared with other trees (Place Pooling or not assigned to a tree. Unless you manually delete tables like some users do. You should always do backups before replacing database in your database.
  15. Question... My main database has had a severe make over. About 1.000 people have been either deleted or merged (with doubles). I now want to update my TNG website... 1) am I correct in thinking that when updating a tree through gedcom, TNG will only replace data for people who have the same ID? Meaning that if the ID of a person has changed (which is the case, due to the changes made), it will end up twice in my database, and people who have been deleted in my desktop program will remain in TNG? 2) if n°1) is so, I guess a "replace all" import is the only way to go? 3) when I do a replace all, it will also replace my place names. I have just spent weeks (for the second time!) geocoding and adding place levels to 2'500 places.... I don't want to lose them. When I do a "replace all" import, they will be overwritten, correct? But if I do a backup of the current, geocoded list and restore that, I will loose all newly imported places which weren't there before... So, in other words..... Is the following the only solution to my problem? - make a backup of places - import new gedcom, do replace all - restore the places table - import the same gedcom, but this time not "replace all" but rather an update --> as it is the same gedcom, the ID's will be the same, and the new place names removed when restoring the table backup will be added again If anyone has a simpler solution, let me know... Tom
  16. This is a search enhancement. Hendrik
  17. Hi, Not sure this is correct, but in the search results the Nickname is visible, between quotes. See the picture attached. Is this a bug? Can i solve this? Version: 12.0.1 (version 12 including patches) KR Sandor

    Integrate TNG site into WordPress (WP) site

    Hi cfj and Roger Finally weekend! I checked the WP Widgets, and I have no widgets, that says anything about TNG search or similar I have decided to follow the advice from cfj and go and try Klostermanns method. In some way I must figure this out. Never give up... :😎. I am sure, I will be back.

    V12 dna_groups table

    Looks like you are missing some $admtext variables, so "DNA Groups" is not showing as the table name. Likewise, you are missing the $test variable for " Keep Name Private " Edited - Select All and Clear All are the other 2 variables missing All of these are in the alltext.php file

    V12 dna_groups table

    In a clean V12.0 installation (no mods installed) the dna_groups database table shows a an empty line on the backup page. Also the the two menu items left of the "delete selected" are empty (the same is true on other pages like media) - independent of the language selected. Looking at the table thru phpMyAdmin it shows perfectly OK to me. See attached samples

    Maps stopped working

    Steve For your error. The Premium Plan or Maps APIs for Work client ID included in the script load is invalid, expired, or the current address loading the Maps JavaScript API has not been added to the list of authorized URLs. I think it's probably the last bit and it should work in time You might want to read this https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/get-api-key#registering-authorized-urls M

    Roy, it's true I didn't have a CC in place on my account. I don't have 10 hits a month, never mind needing to be concerned with billing so I didn't add a credit card. Didn't need it. However, I just went in and added one now. Then I changed my API key from a "1" back to what it has been for a year and it goes back to the js error: Google Maps JavaScript API error: RefererNotAllowedMapError https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/error-messages#referer-not-allowed-map-error Your site URL to be authorized: Not sure what is happening.....:(

    Yes, that is what my site now says but go to admin and try to geocode a place... it would not let me

    Funny. I just changed my API key to "1" (without the quotes) and the map loads with the correct pins. However, it has a grey overlay on it that says "for development purposes only".

    Lucky you Michael. My TNG 11 site has had the google maps 1 key for ages but mine actually stopped working yesterday and now requires a new key.
