    Working with PDF files

    You need to create a generic thumbnail for PDF documents. I have found it easiest to upload the PDF through the media section of admin and select the thumbnail and create a link to the pdf. See attached image.

    Working with PDF files

    Hello, I am using template 10, and I would like to upload several PDF files into my Documents folder. I also want to link to one from the "Features" box on the RHS of my home page. I have uploaded just one PDF (and I can "see it" in the list of files in the documents folder) but when I try to determine the path to view it (be selecting it and attempting to "preview" it) that pop-up window just closes immediately. I suspect that it wants to treat the file as a jpg image, not a PDF. Can someone outline for me the best way to view and link to PDF files? Thanks, Ted

    Well, I'm back. I just now tried to follow the same logic to upload a PDF file. I uploaded it into the "Documents" folder and it shows up there in the Media / Search page. However, when I try to display it (to get the path) the window immediately closes. I am presuming that TNG is expecting the file to be a Jpg (which it is not). Somewhere I seem to recall a screen in which you can assign a file type (i.e., an extension) but I can't seem to locate that. Can you all let me know how to deal with PDF files, as I expect to want to do this quite a bit. Thanks, Ted

    Re copyright. I appreciate the comment about "fair use" and I always try to respect copyright when dealing with images -- whether posting online or including one in a book I am writing. Before posting this, I did a google search (try either "lunch atop a skyscraper" or "men on the beam") and this image is available on many many public websites for download. It's simply illegal to use it for commercial purposes without obtaining the rights to do so. Hence my caveat when posting it. The man who took the original photo< Charles Clyde Ebbets, was employed by a firm working for Rockefeller center. The image first appeared in the New York Herald-Tribune on October 2, 1932. Over the years there have been numerous claims and counter claims as to the actual photographer and whether or not it was posed -- some claiming that there was a ledge just below the frame of the photo. I have been researching the Ebbets family of NYC (think Ebbets Field) for over 20 years and there is no doubt about who took the picture --there are photos of Mr. Ebbets in his office with the photo tacked onto a bulletin board, for example, as well as a trail of paper documents establishing his work that day. There is also a photo of Mr. Ebbets taking that picture -- he often rigged a second camera to take a picture of himself taking a picture, as he often found himself in perilous positions to do so. I'll suggest now that this isn't the forum to debating the photo, tho. I just wanted to share it as a thank you to those who helped me make the link. Ted

    The above picture was not just a picture showing an ordinary day at work. It was a staged photograph that was made solely for publicity purposes by the Rockefeller Center. There was 3 photographers on the site that day: Charles C Ebbets, Thomas Kelley and William Leftwich. Nobody knows who of them took the picture(s).

    Thank you Ken for referring to the mailing list. If there was a solution to the problem, you would have told us this certainly in the forum. Nico

    Ted, this is a very famous photograph "Lunch atop a Skyscraper'. Just because we post something on our website does not automatically mean that it is copyrighted. Nor does the mere act of posting material copyrighted by someone else on our websites confer ownership to us; in fact, doing so may violate applicable copyright laws. You might want to review copyright law and especially the portions applicable to 'fair use doctrine'.

    Great! That worked and was easy. As your reward, here's the image. (It's copyrighted, so if you download it do not use it publicly. I have copyright rights for my website.):

    This may or may not work - go to media in your admin and find the image you want, click on the edit but don't make any changes, scroll down and then click save - your should get a message somewhat like this: The number should be the media ID

    Presumably you have added your photo to your website's database using Admin > Media > Add New. Find the image in your photos gallery and look at the browser address which appears for that page. To link the image to the place you want it, you should just be able to replace the [name] with whatever number appears in the browser address Alan

    BTW, "hooping" is when you hope you don't have to "jump through hoops." 😉

    Hello. I am using template 10 which has a "Features" box on the RHS of the home page that can be used to link to several different items. I have an image of a world-famous photograph (one that all of you would, undoubtedly, recognize instantly) that was taken in 1932 by one of the persons in the family for this site. I have uploaded it into the "Photos" album and given it a name and a caption. I would now like to link to that photo as one of my"Features," but I have no idea what the path would be to get there. For example, the sample code that Darrin has for this it "Feature 1, showmedia.php?mediaID=[name]" But I am hooping that I don't have to edit a php file to simply display an image that is in my Photos folder. Can one of you tell my what to put there to open this image? Also, I may want to create several PDF files which (I suppose) I could upload to a "Documents" file. Yes? Would that be a correct place to store these? (They may be on a variety of topics.) If so, would the "path" to open them be similar to that for photos? Thanks, Ted p.s. Once I get it working, I'll post the link to get to it if you want to see what "world-famous photograph" I am referring to, at which point you will go "OMG. That one!"

    Darrin does not monitor the TNG Community Forum, so you will need to ask this question on the tng user2list. If you are not subscribe to the list, go to TNG Admin and click the Getting Started link in the top of the screen. The help screen will tell you how to subscribe

    Hi! Darrin, could you please tell us, if you have contacted Google? What do they say? What do you intend to do in order to reestablish the batch geocode facility?

    It appears that the GoogleMaps plugin is causing this... When desactivated, the pages load effortlessly. 🙄

    I'm very happy for you But that doesn't explain why my site suddenly stopped working... I haven't touched any of the settings in neither WordPress nor TNG, except for the WordPress update and some plugin updates. I'll start disabling the plugins one by one to see if they cause the problem - though those aren't used on the TNG pages. the Wordpress pages work fine.

    I use Kloosterman's method with my own touch. Testet with TNG template 18 as you have. WP files loads fine

    When I put "yes" and choose a template, it shows the content, but ignores the header, the footer, and all the styling done through WordPress.

    I have just tested with TNG template set to yes, and it works.

    Fluffy do you have template set to yes? You can not use a template it has to be set to no. https://huygens-vandemoortel-ancestry.be/tng_11/
