I changed from template 4 to template 13 some days ago.

My templateconfig.php shows on FTP as last modification date the Nov 4th, 2018, and has only the contents of template 4.
What would I have to do to update my templateconfig.php?

Thanks for advice,

The templateconfig.php file is now obsolete as of TNG v12.  That config file was converted to database entries in the tng_templates table.

You have to use the Admin > Setup > Template Settings to update the database.

@Ken Roy Thank you for your quick reply!

I asked because in the readme 12x-123 it is written, that I should back up the templateconfig.php - so it seems to be obsolet to do a back up:


TNG 12.3 Upgrade

(From v.12.x)

Installation Instructions

  1. Back up settings and custom files, other preparation.   |   Hide instructions

    If you haven't done so lately, please make a backup of the following important files before proceeding (you might need them later, even if nothing goes wrong here):

    • config.php (general settings)
    • *footer.php or footer.html (custom footer)
    • importconfig.php (import settings)
    • *index.php or index.html (your home page!)
    • logconfig.php (log settings)
    • mapconfig.php (map settings)
    • meta.php (custom meta data & scripting)
    • mmconfig.php (mod manager settings)
    • *css/mytngstyle.css (style sheet)
    • pedconfig.php (pedigree settings)
    • templateconfig.php (template settings)
    • *topmenu.php or topmenu.html (custom header)
