    Journeys In Genealogy Website

    It has been quite a 'journey' since 2016 when I stood up my first primitive family genealogy site. It was one, yet it really wasn't as then things were simply articles and posts of one sort or another in WordPress. Needless to say, it wasn't very informative or interesting... I now develop and publish a WordPress/TNG 'bundle' site, which is running the platform specifics seen in my signature line. About a year and a half ago, I 'lost control' of the WP side of the site. PHP changes, orphaned and outdated plugins--and years of trying out every bell & whistle I could find. I learned the hard way that this is not a thoughtful way to publish a website. After a complete rebuild using Laragon, earlier this year I re-published the site--and put some final tweaks to it last week. Some elements look similar to the previous site. Everything has been kept simple. Let me know what you think! https://journeysingenealogy.com

    Template 13 French translation

    Cheers Ken. That makes sense. Also a good reference.

    Template 13 French translation

    Sorry, I did not see the white language selection on a white background Template 13 has Dad's Side label and Mom's Side label that can be saved in different languages It looks like you are using different links. Take a look at Creating a new Template - TNG v12 which has information on adding new fields to a template that can be in more than one language. It used to be easier before Darrin moved the Template Settings to the database. You might be able to install the Template Manager mod and try to find fields that exist in other templates so you do not have to modify the TNG modules.

    Template 13 French translation

    Ken, that's why I went with "err on the side of caution" I can now understand why David is confused, as is below, in blue.???? Would / could the issue be, that he has his Site as follows.

    Template 13 French translation

    I do not understand the point. The English/French dropdown selection is available on the right side below the login. The translation works for everything, except for the links at the top of the page. David T

    Template 13 French translation

    Did you define both languages in Admin > Languages? I do not see an option in the URL you provided to select what language to use. Your default language can remain English but you must define both languages in Admin > Languages Sorry but that is not the way to accomplish this. If you only added French to the Admin > Languages, that might be why you do not have the language selection in the top menu

    Template 13 French translation

    I'll give that a try and see what happens. I do want the default language to be English, however, since the geographic area covered by the site is officially bilingual English/French, as is Canada itself, I want users to have the option to visit the site in French.

    Template 13 French translation

    Go into Admin >> Setup >> General Settings >> Language ....and change your current language too French. It's possible when you setup your Site originaly, it defaulted to the English setting. I don't use another language apart from English, but looking at your Site, visitors have the option to change from English to French. Having never used the setting (I described above) before, I'm not sure if this will aid in your desired outcome.

    Template 13 French translation

    I am using Template 13 with TNG ver. 13.1.1. I have enabled French translation from an English language site. Everything works great except for the "Featured Links" on the home page. Although the French language links have been created, they never convert to French on the site. See: https://glassville.ca/tng/ and attached screenshot. Any thoughts anyone? Thanks, David T

    Randomphoto question(s)

    The only way an HTML file knows PHP is like <iframe src="/wp-tng/randomphoto.php" width="270" height="270"></iframe> If this creates an iframe inside an iframe, it may start eating more memory on the user's device.

    Thanks Mahesh. FYI, although tng is in a sub folder of WordPress, they both use the same database...hope that helps you some..my file structure looks like this: wamp64 www ----wordpress ------wp-admin ------wp-content ------wp-includes ------wp-tng --------tng files and folders

    Randomphoto question(s)

    I might be completely wrong but this will not work.­čś×. randomphoto.php requires access to showmedia.php, media_table and access to the database. This may not be possible outside the scope of tng folder. I am in the middle of something at the moment but this seems like an intesting project. interesting. I may try to work out shortcode to work in my TNG Shortcode Constructor FOR Wordpress. Please do let us know how you get on.

    Randomphoto question(s)

    Thanks Mahesh, but using Elementor page editor (I know you don't use elementor) only allows html and not php. Fo that I have to make the shortcode, which I haven't been able to figure out yet. Made me think of spmething to try... Is there a way to use the include statement in html? the <div><?php include('/wp-tng/randomphoto.php'); ?></div> will not work as it is a php statement (in elementor) so I need a shortcode. but I thought of something to try....I'll let you know...

    Looks like you may have to Try real path instead of URL in include statement.

    Randomphoto question(s)

    ok, I'm trying now to do this via the html way. I'ts been the furthest I've gotten, but can't get the pics to display. If any one has any comments or suggestions, I'd be glad to hear them. the html code: (localhost is needed as it's WAMPServer...and I have other test sites under www) <div> <a href="http://localhost/wordpress/wp-tng/randomphoto.php"> <img border="0" width="270" height="270"> </a> </div> and here's a screenshot: The code, css and title are just temporary, but I hope you get the idea...

    Copy website from webhost to localhost

    I downloaded a fresh copy of TNG and ran that and it worked perfectly. Possibly something corrupted on my earlier download. I had virtual hosts setup, so don't know if it works without doing that.

    Copy website from webhost to localhost

    It depends which step you are getting the "Please wait, attempting to process..." message on. It sounds like it is on the table creation step. What is your collation and what version of MySQL or MariaDB are you using? If you use the developer tools (F12 on most browsers) and have that open when you click the button that hangs, you should be able to see something about the communication in the network tab.

    it's been dealt with ! It was a misinterpretation on my part. Can be considered closed. Many greetings Hubert.

    Copy website from webhost to localhost

    Because when I first started out I couldn't get the downloaded version running, then I tried the full/fresh install and that didn't and still doesn't work. It was a case of working through what I might have missed. It's not always obvious that there are missing files and packages when installing wamp and that for some sites you have to set virtual hosts.

    Copy website from webhost to localhost

    If you downloaded the site, why are you trying to do full install of TNG on you localhost? Can you not get it running by editing the config.php and changing the $rootpath as I indicated above?
