    Media Links Corrupt After GEDCOM Upload

    removed,...didn't know how to delete an errant post.
  3. Thanks for both suggestions. I have added the SEO and create site map mods but on trying to get Google to find site map, Google said in red couldn't fetch. I don't understand why and what I need to do now. Any help gratefully received. On import secondary processes 5 sitemap files created with one seemingly an abridged file that I was advised to put in Google's sitemap notification. Cheers John

    Media Links Corrupt After GEDCOM Upload

    I followed your procedure and the results are the same. The tng_Media and tng_Medialinks tables are populated and seem to be correct, but the tng_Mediatypes table is empty. The native TNG mediatypes (Photos, Documents, Headstones, Histories, Videos and Recordings) don't seem to be available anywhere on the site.

    I will ask Darrin the question, but to get round the current issue I will check out my BK data and identify the people with problematic name types, make a note of them and 'fix' the gedcom before I do their updates. Again - thanks for all the help. Sue

    Bruce, It seems to be added to TNGv12 you can read here.... https://tng.lythgoes.net/wiki/index.php?title=No_Captcha_reCAPTCHA_Add-on Updated below...... Oh I see you have nucaptcha included on your tngv12 site.

    That's what I found as well by testing the GEDCOM Sue sent me. But I'm curious to understand how what seems to me to be a fact (level 1) got inserted as an attribute (level 2). That's a level of customization that Reunion (my software) doesn't support. Sue, I don't want to speak for Darrin, but I know a bit about TNG's database structure, and many attributes, like places have their own tables. So a change to support new attribute types might be a big change for how TNG works. That said, have you considered using your software to simply re-define the additional name types as level 1 GEDCOM tags? What I'm suggesting is to make a backup copy of your Brother's Keeper database, and then try to change the underlying definition of your name types...forcing them to be facts instead of attributes? I realize that might not fit your research process, but it might be a quick way to solve the issue. If something goes wrong, restore your original BK database. Once imported as facts (i.e., custom events), additional name types can be assigned an ordering so that they float to the top of person displays, displayed with the given and surnames. k/r Bill Herndon Lindell-Herndon Genealogy

    Yes - changing the code to 1 _RELN etc works, but it would be preferable not to have to do it manually. A code fix in the next upgrade may be too late for me, but it could help future users. Is it better to contact Darrin directly - or does he monitor the forum for suggestions. Also thanks to all who have helped me with this issue Sue

    As Brent noted, I think the reason they are being ignored is that they are level 2 lines, whereas TNG is expecting Custom Events to have a level 1 line. You might write to Darrin and ask him about this if he thinks it might be possible to tweak the code to handle your situation. Roger

    Media Links Corrupt After GEDCOM Upload

    Dang - I missed out a step.. After backing up the tables, to to the Tab to Create the Tables - this creates a new default empty tables for TNG, then restore the Table Structures and the Users table and it should then work - the Collections information is stored in the tng_mediatypes table. And I've just now realised you asked this in two different places and I didn't make the connection it was the same person - using phpMyAdmin to empty the tng_media and tng_medialinks tables also sorts out this kind of mess.

    import Gedcom

    You should use the Replace All Current Data option. The connection of media to wrong people happens if something has caused their ID numbers in your genealogy software to re-assign numbers to the people - TNG uses the ID number to link Media to people and if a person's ID number changes (i.e. the person attached to an ID number changes) then the media is linked to the wrong people.

    Global Media Link Deletion

    Yes. I did exactly that to someone's site a few days ago after they had changed the local path of all the media on their computer and not updated the Import Settings - result - all Media now present in duplicate. Emptying those two tables and reimporting the GEDCOM fixed it (apart from having to reassign a bunch of the more than 5,000 media items back again to the correct collection. Roger

    NuCaptcha download link

    I am trying to download the latest NuCaptcha version via the TNG Wiki - which takes me to http://www.ourfamilyhistories.org/ccount/click.php?id=12 But nothing happens. I tried to contacting Bryan Larson via his site but although I "passed" his Captcha was denied the ability to leave a messagel. Bruce Roy

    Michael, obviously your opinion on your difficult experience with recaptcha matters, but, IMO, it was only after it became needlessly harsh in your last post that Ken stepped in. ­čśÉ Ron

    In the example i am looking at there are no sources or notes, against the names, so I could update the gedcom. But it would be better not having to do this each time. I do an update. I'm using TNG for a One Name study, so when I start loading my data as live data I will be doing it bit by bit (ie by family). I'm also hosted by the Guild of One name studies so no mods are possible. I'll have a go at your suggestion. Sue

    Sue, Do you have any sources or notes attached to names? If not, then you can do a replace all to change the 2 _RELN, 2 _ADPN, and 2 _BIRN tags into 1 _RELN, 1 _ADPN, and 1 _BIRN tags. This will allow them to be imported as custom events. Otherwise if there are sources or notes, a mod would need to be written in order to pull out these name tags to be able to save them. gedimport_people around line 48 is where it starts reading the names. The handling of these additional name fields would need added around line 100, where the handling of the 2 lines under the 1 NAME tag is done. There are a lot of non-standard things that have been added to GEDCOMs since the standard is 20 some years old and didn't quite account for everything people want fields for now. Notes are okay, but information can easily be lost when all the extra information is in there which is why many programs added the extra fields for users. Customization of the GEDCOM standard means that there are more custom GEDCOM standards than there are genealogy programs now, since every company interpreted things a little differently and then some changed how they interpreted the standard and have multiple versions out there from their different versions of software.

    Problem is, they are being ignored and not even getting as far as appearing on custom event type display.

    Media Links Corrupt After GEDCOM Upload

    Hi Roger. I did the procedure you specified...backup tables, backup table structure, restore table structure, restore Users Table, import GEDCOM. Everything looks correct except the Photos. I must need to do another step. No Photos are showing up (I store all of my Media in the Photos Folder). Do I need to Restore the Media Table? The Media Filenames are showing up, but no photos or thumbnails. It appears I've lost the link to my Collections. On the 'Media' pull down menu, there's no longer a link to "Photos', 'Histories', 'Videos', 'Recordings', etc. When I try to create a 'Photos' collection, I get an error message saying one already exists. How do I re-establish the link to my Collections? Thanks, Kevin

    1900 Census Import Issue

    New version of the Census Plus International mod was posted on the TNG Wiki yesterday. The new version terminates the import if the Ancestry Index does not contain column header labels and indicates that you must manually Add the census transcript. Note that this new mod version uses the new Mod Guidelines for custom text inserted in the cust_text.php and requires that you update the cust_text.php files as indicated in the NOTES section of the upgrade readme files.

    import Gedcom

    tng-v12.1 Import GEDCOM I have a question, I use a different genealogy program as a work program, and if I have enough data I read the gedcom file in TGN, Now it has happened a few times that all my pictures and documents are connected to the wrong people. Replace (in selected family tree): *All existing data records *Only exact records *Do not replace data *Add all records Import GEDCOM: *Accept data for all new custom event types *Import only custom event types What are the correct settings Greeting,

    Sue, One other thing to check in that case... Go to Administration -> Custom Event Types, and for each custom event that you're attempting to import, verify that the "On Import" column has "accept" flagged. I've seen cases where this is three stage process: Get the event types into TNG with one import, flag all those new event types as "accept" on import, re-import to actually get the data in and get it displayed. Good luck, Bill Herndon Lindell-Herndon Genealogy

    That is odd, because I am unable to do it. Tried again this morning - screen shots are attached. Then tried again with two other types of name (snip from Gedcom below) 1 NAME Jane /Horsman/ 2 _RELN Dame Juliana Horsman 2 _ADPN adopted Juliana 2 _BIRN birthname Juliana 1 SEX F Did a gedcom update with 'Accept data' = Y (as I usually do). They didnt appear. Then tried doing it with importing just 'custom event types' (no actual data). None were imported. I'm confused.. Sue example.pdfexample.pdf

    Global Media Link Deletion

    If I empty the tng_media and tng_medialinks tables and then upload the known good GEDCOM again, the tables should then be populated with only the correct media and correct medialinks. Correct? BTW, I'm comfortable with using cPanel and phpMyAdmin. Thanks.

    Global Media Link Deletion

    If you're comfortable with your site's cPanel and phpMyAdmin then you can use phpMyAdmin to view your database, and to Empty (Truncate) the tng_media and tng_medialinks tables. Roger
