  1. Today
  2. I have seven different branches of my tree. Three of them overlap with inter-marriage. Early on when I found a whole new line, I tried to delete two of the trees and re build them. The results were pretty ugly, and I went back and spent days hand recording them. I am now faced with the same issue again. I found a whole new line that may well change over 100 records. This leads to the questions: Can someone write “Deleting and Reinstalling Trees for Dummies” for me. Remember that three of the lines intertwine. Here is an example of how one record looks with two trees. Thanks, Rob Roy www.theroyfamily.com
  3. While I like the idea of Heat Maps - they will not work in my case because of the way I have my information entered in my database (non-standard). There are too many records to try to fix so... I need to disable heat maps and/or delete the button links. Please let me know where to do this. Thanks

    Subroot functionality for media

    As Ken states, the media files must be within or below the accessible (www) space on the host. However, you can put media in a folder in that space and be shared by multiple TNG versions. This is done through use of symbolic links or symlinks. Both Windows and your Host servers offer symbolic links. Furthermore, if your gedcom files are shared by your production and development sites, you can create symlinks to share the gedcom folder outside the 'www' internet space, hence remaining protected.

    Is there anyone who might know what/where the above text is located? I've searched and cannot locate it. Please help?

    Thanks for the suggestion. Just in case anybody needs it, to set this, open FileZilla; go to the "Transfer" tab at the top, got to "Transfer Type", select "Binary"... and yes this did solve the issue with FileZilla.

    Subroot functionality for media

    Rob, The media files need to be accessible by the browser, so I do not think it is possible to move media files outside of the browser accessibility. You can move your backup and gedcom folder as I have documented in Move your backup files and Move your gedcom files
  8. I'm using the subroot functionality to put my configuration files outside the user accessible area. (above the www path). I also want to do the same for my media and other content folders. This would also allow me to use these files for my production website and development website. How can I implement this?

    Glad you and Ken got it working. I suggest with FileZilla you transfer all files in binary mode if you are not already doing so. Anything else can cause problems.

    Image Captcha - Images not copying

    So this issue is officially resolved - actually through the most valiant efforts of Ken working with me throughout the day, he somehow managed to get the files working again AND, most relevant, his suspicion that something was happening in the actual transfer / upload of the files to the host server was correct. In the last 10 minutes I proved it. I am using FileZilla Pro for FTP. There are multiple settings one can use for Encryption, selection of server type, Transfer Settings (Active, Passive, or Auto) and even Charset. I'm not good enough to know specifics on what should or should not be set. However, I went to try to add my own images, added a folder in the v12...folder called "capimg" and placed my images there. When I pointed captcha to these images, I was back to my first issue - nothing showed. So next I renamed two of the images in the existing img folder and used the same names as set 1 for my images. Once again, no go. Then I noticed that my uploaded images were 100kb smaller than the actual images I uploaded. Next step, deleted the images from the server, went back to my antique version of WSFTP Pro (only uploads in passive mode and I don't think encrypted) but, the images uploaded perfectly and sized correctly and they work. Now if I can add a folder to the v12...folder for my own images and figure out the correct path to get them, I'll probably do that. For now however, all is good. I really appreciate everyone's help tracking this down, it's been a process that's for sure. But at the end of the day, everyone's mod/code did work and FileZilla was the culprit. Thanks again....

    It definitely looks like an image file path issue. In that Edit Options display, can you right click on one of the image place holders and select Inspect Element. You should see the following: <img src="mods/image_captcha_v12.0.0.6/img/cap001f.png" title="moonstruck" alt="moonstruck"> If you do, then the path may be wrong. Are you using a Wordpress site? Filepaths can be a challenge with WP. Tell me what you see.

    Image Captcha - Images not copying

    There is nothing that I use that provides image security. FileZilla doesn't recognize the SSL certificate but, I believe that is normal as well. I'm not at home at the moment so I can't look at my files to find out who is providing the certificate. Short of blocking specific URL's (particularly from areas in Europe) the htaccess file should not contain anything unusual. This issue seems to only appear in conjunction with the ModManager - there are hundreds of images throughout my site, both the main site and the TNG portion. I'm using the Tabs Mod without issue and it finds the images I use there without issue. That is part of the Extensions folder and not the Mods folder, maybe that makes a difference?

    I ended up doing a forced reload on each image individually after uploading the images in order to get rid of the message that says it cannot display the image because it contains errors. edit. The images are now there so you should be able to choose your images for the Image Captcha. I am not sure I understand why the image generated an error message.

    Larry, Do you have any sort of image security on your site? Who is providing your SSL certificate? FileZilla indicates it does not recognize the certificate (that might be normal) I replaced the wiki icon and it now displays. When I tried to display it initially it indicates that it cannot be displayed because it contains errors. I was able to get one of the images for the Image Captcha to display after i replaced all the images, but when I try to display a different image, I can a similar error message. I cannot right click to copy the error message text and cannot even view your page source, so you must have implemented something in your .htaccess file that is messing things up

    Larry, Do NOT mess with the Mod Manager. We need to get to the bottom of this problem and not complicate it by replacing components If you want me to look at it use my web site Contact Us form and send me TNG Admin access, and FTP access.

    Image Captcha - Images not copying

    I'm using the default path in the mods folder. And, yes, something isn't right but now the big question of the day is, how do I find out and fix it. Literally everything else is working fine as far as I can tell. In fact, the TNG Wiki icon IS in classes/wiki16.png as you have indicated. And, the Image Captcha images are, in fact, located in mods/image_captcha_v12.0.0.6/img/cap...(the default). It seems that something is not right with Mod Manager. Is it possible to replace it without losing everything? Any other suggestions? Is there a config file for the mod manager that might have something wrong or corrupt?
  18. Ken Roy

    Image Captcha - Images not copying

    Larry, Based on one of your first posts, you are also not displaying the Mo Manager wiki icon, so something is not correct someplace. The image being empty implies that it cannot find the images. The TNG Wiki icon should be in classes/wiki16.png Best I can tell the Image Captcha images are in mods/image_captcha_v12.0.0.6/img/cap... Note that the Edit option screen indicates If you are using a custom path to your mods folder, the images will not display below. Since I rename my mods folder on my WampServer environment, the images do not show, but then I the option that allows me to use my own images

    File permissions are set 0755. I would assume that the TNG Genealogy URL IS defined correctly as this particular mod is the only thing I'm having issues with. Thanks for the "kick" to check the browser inspect element - for what it's worth, where one of the images should be reads as follows: <img src="cap_image.php?n=74088" width="72" height="72" alt="#7"> If I look at the table that is inserted - this is what I see: Doesn't this imply that no images are being added? Thanks for your help on this as well.

    Image Captcha - Images not copying

    You could look at the folder and file permissions, with the cPanel File Manager or FileZilla FTP client. Another possibility is that your TNG Genealogy URL is not defined correctly, but then I would expect you to have problems with other TNG Admin screens. Edited - if you use the brower Inspect Element for where the image should display, what does it show. Or if you right click and tried to View image

    Well sir - I don't know the answer to that. Is there an easy way to find out?

    Larry, Can the Mod Manager write to your TNG img folder?
  23. LJLachance

    Image Captcha - Images not copying

    I have continued to search for reasons why my images are not showing in Mod Manager options. The only mod I had that was pre-v12 was FGW tabs and I've uninstalled and reinstalled the latest version which works as expected AND did not correct the image display issue. What I have noticed, however, is that in MY Mod Manager, the Wiki Image also DOES NOT appear? Here is a comparison of the visualization of both my own mod manager and the one from the Wiki page. Could this be indicative of an issue with my coding someplace? Or is it possible that my mod manager is somehow corrupt? I've been doing upgrades since before TNG version 9 - maybe I'm missing something? I do have a custom config file but it's only purpose is to place images for the FGW mod. Something is wrong and if anybody has suggestions, please let me know. I really don't want to start from scratch with TNG but, if that is the only alternative, so be it... Thanks for the help. Larry

    SOLVED : Inserting a New table in TNG

    It was just a really little problem of PHP knowledge from my part... the particular syntax ....array_merge ($tablelist, (array)$namesperson_table); used by Bart (= push in the array something that is NOT an array) gives the same result as array_push($...) which is clearest. Michel

    SOLVED : Inserting a New table in TNG

    My Same Person Link uses $tablelist = array_merge($tablelist, (array)$sameperson_table); which is code that I copied from Bart's Persistent Bookmarks mod Glad that my links helped you find a solution
  26. Michel KIRSCH

    SOLVED : Inserting a New table in TNG

    Thanks Ken, reading the code of Bart gives me the solution : instead inserting the name directly hard-coded in the list of tables, modif the admin_backup.php (and _restore and _optimize..) with this statement : array_push($tablelist,$xxx_table); So your new table will be taking in account for the "All tables" operations. No more problems... Bart Degrijse's Personal Table Maintenance is a good solution for personnal tables, but shall not work for mod's distributed tables. Thanks again Ken. Michel

    SOLVED : Inserting a New table in TNG

    The Census Plus International mod adds 6 new tables to the TNG database, the Same Person Link, Persistent Bookmarks each add a table to the TNG database, the Cousins mod adds 2 tables, and their might be others. The mods listed are the ones I use. With 242 mods shown in the Mods for TNG v12, it is only normal to have to resolve conflicts between mods. Bart Degryse also created a Personal Table Maintenance mod that can be used to optimize, backup, and restore tables without having to modify the TNG programs.
