Using Histories

Recommended Posts

Michael L Thomas

I see nothing on History, and would like to know what it is, how to use.

When I find another website that has content suitable for my own site, I link to that site using Histories.

In admin/media/add new (select) histories, check/tick the little box "This media comes from an external source (you must supply your own thumbnail)". Enter the other site (or page) URL, give it a title and link it to a person, family, place etc.. on your website and save. I'm happy using the default thumb icon but you can use your own. Any added histories will appear on your site's "What's New" page.

This is just one example of what you can do with Histories, no doubt there are many more.

Thank you for your help, I would not have thought to look in the media folder.  I have done it, but do not know how to link to the person, and now I have two and need to delete one and link the other.  Even though I ask for help and it is frustrating, I am enjoying doing this thanks to people like you!

When you add any type of media (local or external), you are given the option of linking this media to people, families etc.

The Media Links is below the Media Information (title/decription). You can see from the image what to choose, search for name/ID number, add and then save.

If you want to edit or delete a media item, in Admin/Media you Search (by type: photo, document etc.), find the item (by title, name or ID), edit (first button) or delete (middle red cross button) and save.

There are multiple ways to create histories.  See the TNG Wiki article on Histories - Creating
