Mods for V13 require login to royandboucher?

Recommended Posts

Barry Ennever

Hi, I have upgraded to V13 and am attempting to re-install my 3 mods: Cousins, Broad search & Delete places with no events.  The mod link for the Broad search mod  on https://tng.lythgoes.net/wiki/index.php?title=Category:Mods_for_TNG_v13 links to a login page for royandboucher so I'm unable top download the cfg file.

Can anyone assist plse?  Many thanks, Barry.

The Delete Places with no Events is an obsolete mod.  It was rolled into TNG v12 if I remember.

The Broad Search mod  needs to be moved to the TNG Wiki by either Ron who made it work in TNG 13 or the mod developer.

The  Broad_Search_mod for TNG 13 is now on the TNG Wiki.

Also, the Family_Chart_Links mod for TNG 13 is available as well.

Thanks Ron,

I had other more important duties this morning.

The Family Chart Help mod was provided by Graham Chamberlain, who might no longer be in a position to support his mods.  Someone who uses his mod may need to take them over.

Jeff might also not be in a position to support his mods.  I have not seen him on the forum nor on the TNG user2list for a long time.

Yes, I noticed a few "modders" (terrible word I know) are MIA.

Admin Families Plus I consider essential, so hopefully someone will tackle it.

Michael,

It cannot be that essential since you do not even show as using that mod!  There are only 3 users in addition to Jeff who show as using the mod.  Nor do you show as using Graham's mod

There appears to be a minor error in the Cousins mod which prevented install for me.  Line 641 should read 

<input type="text" value="" name="mylastname" />

On the contrary, I've been using it (and others) for years.

As for me not showing using this or that mod, the answer is simple.

It's too complicated, plus I really don't have the time. I do however appreciate the authors of every mod I use!

I'm dealing with a website that has over 200 members, an email inbox of about 350, a database approaching 99,000 names with a target of 100,000 before the year-end.

I'm going to ask Darrin if he'll consider incorporating it.

Many thanks for the FCL mod.

Please consider updating these two.

Would like to help, but the first, Family Chart Help, I do not use, and downloads from G. Chamberlains wiki article are not possible. If you have a copy, send to me and I can take a look.

The second mod, Admin_Families_Plus, can be updated to install easily enough, but its usage results in a query error because of TNG13 changes to the Families area.  That requires some code change and testing, which would be best done by the author.  I might take a look, but it may be too complex for me.

I see now that Ken has discussed these mods earlier in this thread as well.

The Broad search mod adds [broadnote] to genlib.php.  This throws errors and should be  ['broadnote'] so line 123 of the cfg file needs to be corrected to include the single quote.

Hope this helps

Interesting, it doesn't in my testing of the mod I posted. Was it an error or a notice or warning?   Irregardless, will make the change.

Update: I see it is a 'warning', I will fix but it doesn't preclude your using the mod.

Sorry, it is a warning and I have corrected it, thanks Ron.

That still should be corrected though, so I  have reuploaded the  Broad_Search_mod with the syntax warning corrected.  Thanks...Barry.

Ken has updated the Family Chart Help.

Please see what you can do with Admin Families Plus.

I merge many people/families resulting in empty and redundant family ID numbers.

Without the mod, I can't delete these numbers easily.

Michael and anyone else using this mod,

You should take the time to ask Darrin to include the mod in TNG.  It looks like it might be helpful to visitors.

Useful mods do not make it into TNG on their own,  We need to request that Darrin include the feature or capability in TNG.

The same goes with the other mod you are wanting.  I bet no one ever ask Darrin for either of those capabilities or changes.

You lost this bet!

I've emailed Darrin and asked for both.

I explained why I really want the AFP mod. It would be good to have it incorporated, or at the very least as a working mod.

While I don't have a fix on the Admin Families Plus mod for TNG13,  a temporary workaround is possible, if the 12.3 admin:families page is acceptable that is. Uninstall all mods first, then swap in v12.3's  admin_families.php for v13 admin_families.php and revert to the older Admin Famlies Plus v9 of the mod. 

This works in my testing.  But proceed with caution, I didn't test all nuances of the function.  And always uninstall mods before swapping  files like this to make sure you're working with 'clean' TNG php files.

I only suggest this alternative because it sounded like a critical mod for you and would suffice until a fix comes through.

Of course you forgo  new sorting capability and added fields displayed by the TNG 13 admin_famlies.php

Sounds a bit risky!

This morning I did some merging and I was left with two empty F ID numbers.

There was no way to re-use those numbers as they existed. Annoyingly, editing the numbers was also not possible.

I had to go to CP PHPMyAdmin, search and delete. What a pain having to do this.

With the mod, it adds empty family i.e. no father or mother and the ability to delete in Admin.

I hope someone really clever can update this mod or that Jeff resurfaces to do it.

I've asked Darrin to incorporate it, adding why I need this excellent mod.

Not related to any mods, but I have a similar problem with Family Tree Maker. There are about 900 (!) empty or faulty Family IDs. Usually just a completely empty ID, but in some cases a family with children but without parents. FTM doesn't allow you to edit or delete them, and the empty ones you can't even find. They are exported in a gedcom, but don't show within the app.

For some reason, but luckily, TNG seems to ignore these, as I have no empty Family IDs in TNG.
