    Ancestors page is blank.

    Hello, After installing version 1203 if I go to Ancestors (Voorouders) tab I get a blank page. To see what happens go to the link and to Voorouders tab.Voorouders (Ancestors) tab. I deleted the cache, but that didn't work. I hope you can help me to solve this problem. Thank you. Marian Schaapkens
  2. Hi I have not used TNG for a couple of year, but on trying to install it I get the following issue. I get the same issue with either the express or the regular install, it affects all the buttons within readme.html. Example if I click on set permissions, it come up with "Please wait attempting to process" it will not change or show anything else, it is as if it can not talk my hosting provider 1&1 IONOS are my hosting providers The PHP on my site has recently been updated and is now 7.2. I have had a website with 1&1 before, with no issues. Any help or thoughts will be greatly appreciated Brian

    Wikipedia Link mod

    Any ideas why this mod won't install? I'm using TNG v. 12.0.1.
  4. I'm running TNG12.0.1 and want to upgrade to TNG12.0.2 but I can not get access to the downloads12 page. (http://tng.lythgoes.net/downloads12) Unauthorized This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required. Additionally, a 401 Unauthorized error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. What's wrong?
  5. I installed TNG 12.02.and use Template 3. I also have installed the mod "Media display columns mod". I have no preview of my media-files. What can I do? PROBLEM SOLVED!

    Template4 Format

    Having installed TNGv12, I am having difficulty obtaining the proper look for Template4. The feature articles are not aligning with the right edge of the page in a column abeam the introduction paragraph. Since the setup is on my XAMPP, I am copying the View Page Source code that immediately follows the intro para thru to the first line of the first feature ... and a screen clip of the area. Would sure like to know where/how the format is going wrong. Thanks Regis </div> </div> <div class="rightsection"><br /> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr><td valign="top"><span class="normal"><b>Feature Articles</b></span></td></tr> <tr><td valign="top" class="line"></td></tr> <tr><td valign="top"> <div class="normal"> <p> <a href="histories/Carr-Louis-Drury-2009-Bio V2b-Draft.pdf">

    Installation problems

    Information: Destination: TNG 12.0.02 - Template #1 Source: Legacy - Database: 74,000 + people - GEDCOM types tried: Legacy, 5.5.1 only, basic - ANSI & UTF-8 Equipment: HP Laptop - Windows 10 - Chrome browser - Filezilla FTP Server Side: PHP 5.5.38 - MYSQL 5.5.5-10.0.36 When trying to install the first time I let the GEDCOM run for about 24 hrs because I had read that large files may take a very long time. While running the import the activity shown at the bottom of the screen looked good; waiting for host, processing request, connecting... etc. After 24 hrs I stopped the Import and clicked on People in the Administration Menu, it showed only 446 people imported in the database! I deleted all 446 people and tried the above flavors of GEDCOM's, the total never went above 446 people. In digging deeper into the Forum I was surprised at the number of MODs there are; my initial reaction was this software is for programmers and hackers not users (like me). I have used about a dozen genealogy software programs and they have all been more-or-less plug and play; including, the now unsupported PHPGedview. Some of the MODs that looked like what I need require a completed install. I have been trying everything I can think of for 5 days, 16 hrs a day with zero progress. So, here I am making my plea for ideas and assistance. I downloaded GEDCOM Validator and ran it against the above GEDCOMs and if it is correct the GEDCOMs don't do very well meeting the standards and specs for GEDCOMs. The idea of this TNG software is fabulous and ticks all the boxes of what I want in a genealogy software. Thanks, Larryw

    Problem with V12 upgrade

    Lots of errors creating/modifying MySQL tables (see attached - top portion), then errors on individual pages (see attached - bottom portion). Everything else not DNA related works fine, Admin pages all work fine. Host running PHP 5.6 and MySQL also 5.6. I've tried to do the upgrade 3 times with no difference in result. Any suggestions, anyone? TNG 12.txt
  9. Upgraded from v. 11.1 to v. 12.0 but after upgrade, main page will not display (in Firefox nor In Explorer with cache cleared, nor on Android phone which has not previously been used to access the site). Get either a blank page or an HTTP 500 error, depending on browser. The upgrade zip file used was from prior to 6 May, and after noting a comment in a different issue to ensure the file was from 12 May or newer, I re-downloaded the file and re-preformed the upgrade. Same result. However - the administrative pages ARE accessible and viewable. Tried switching templates via admin page, no luck, same result. The Public Home option from the Admin menu also gives the HTTP 500 error. website: http://www.smbnlab.com host: simplyhosting.com login is not required to view site (private data is hidden). Not my first upgrade by any means, but the first with this error. Thanks in advance for any help. Best email: smbroderick@outlook.com
  10. my current site: http://www.zimmersfamily.us/ TNG version: 9.0.4 i'm trying to move to a new host (note that the site above is still at the old host, and therefore is working). TNG is at the root, there's nothing complicated like a Wordpress integration. here's what i've done so far: old host: made a backup of all the files using phpMyAdmin, exported the db new host: created a new MySQL db and user recorded the new dbname, db username, db password used ftp to push up all the TNG files used phpMyAdmin to import the db export to the newly created database edited config.php to update these vars: $database_name, $database_username, $database_password, $rootpath here's the fun part: on my old host, zimmersfamily.us had its own account. at the new host, it is an addon domain to a different (unrelated) domain. to me, that means i have to pay special attention to the $rootpath. i'm pretty sure i have it set correctly: "/home/stevezim/public_html/zimmersfamily.us/" in order to test, i updated my /etc/hosts file so zimmersfamily.us points to the new host. when i load it, i get a page of error messages, below. where do i begin to debug/fix this? will TNG even work if i don't actually have the DNS pointing at my test location?

  11. I would like to include both French accents (eg ç) and Polish lettering (eg Ł) in the letters that display and can be collated (eg to c and L) on my site.My TNG Admin > Languages are English-UTF8 and French-UTF8.My TNG Admin > Setup > Configuration > General Settings > Language is ... Folder = English-UTF8, character set = UTF8Question 1: When I look in my phpMyAdmin, I can see a "server connection collation", and a "server charset" and then also a tab called "charsets". Which do I adjust to achieve the correct outcome?a) “Server connection collation”, which is currently set (not by me) at “utf8mb4_unicode_ci”b) “Server charset”, which is “UTF-8 Unicode (utf8)”c) Lastly, there is a “tab” in phpMyAdmin called “charsets”. This shows a lengthy table of Collations and accompanying Descriptions; within this table, various collations are highlighted, including: this one for utf8: utf8_general_ci Unicode (multilingual), case-insensitive; and this one for utf8mb4: utf8mb4_general_ci Unicode (multilingual), case-insensitive.Do I need to change the server connection collation OR the server charset?Do I need to make sure a particular "charset" in the long table of charset is highlighted under the "charset" tab?Question: where the wiki advises using a certain collation for the lettering, is it referring to a) b) or c), or some combination of this above? Question 2: Which is the correct "collation sequence"? I have looked through a number of the options given in a chart on the "Database Collation - Explain Choosing" page on the wiki - http://collation-charts.org/mysql60/ - but to no avail. Thank you for your help.
  12. First, thanks for those who offer support on the TNG Community, as well as those who share their challenges. I’ve searched often and find others have a similar problem, but solutions don’t work for me. 1. On 1/24/2018 GoDaddy informed me Cthat I have a new IP address. 2. I soon noticed that my TNG sites were not displaying as before. Mainly related to photos and documents. I also was no longed able to login as an administrator. I enter the login info, hit enter, and get no response. The administrative options don’t show. 3. I pursued corrections with no luck, then decided it was time for a new, clean install of the latest TNG version. 4. I’ve tried the new TNG install three times, each with a new database php5.5, and ended with the same result each time. I’ve changed password via phpMyAdmin several times and still could not get logged in. I did the install twice with the Express Install, and once with Regular Install. Installation seemed to go OK thru Step 8 on the Express install. It did create an user name. When I tried Step 9, Create a Tree it said I must log in. But, I couldn’t log in. 5. Contact with GoDaddy did not help with the problem. 6. Any help appreciated. Prior TNG web site: www.kipps.org/kippgenealogy version 10.0.0 Latest TNG install attempt: www.kipps.org/FamGen version 11.1.2 Login not required on either site.

    Fill out the boxes

    I looked at the WIKI about what I should fill out the boxes in FindAGrave Collection boxes and Edit Collection in WIKI was pretty old and did not match the current one Lets look at the boxes I filled out. Hope all of those are correct. I was not sure about Local path(s) and Export as. Can anyone be help of this? Thank you for your advice.
  15. Hi, I have a problem with displaying TNG help pages. Environment and TNG installation: I have installed "DesktopServer Limited" v3.8.3 (by ServerPress.com) on one of my Windows 10 Home PCs. The Apache, PHP and MySQL version-releases can be seen on attached screen copy of TNG Setup>>Diagnostics page. To install TNG I downloaded v 11.1.2 zip file and copied it to DesktopServer C:\xampplite\blueprints folder Using DesktopServer I created a local site www.tngtest1.dev from "blueprint" tngfiles1112.zip (Note! This site is not visible from internet) DesktopServer creates a virtual host by adding the following line in Windows hosts file ( C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts ): www.tngtest1.dev I created a new mysql database for TNG using phpMyAdmin with collation utf8_swedish_ci I created a database admin user with ALL PRIVILEGES and with HOST field set to localhost A TNG Regular installation was done and everything went OK. Database Host Name set to localhost and TNG tables created with collation utf8_swedish_ci Launched page www.tngtest1.dev/admin.php in FireFox and created a TNG admin user. Login to TNG with Admin user and checked: Setup >> Configuration >> General Settings > Database > Database Host: localhost Checked: Setup >> Configuration >> General Settings > Site Design and Definition and changed Genealogy URL from www.tngtest1.dev to localhost So far so good Problem and Error message: Using the TNG panels works fine but when trying to access TNG help pages I get error: Error: TNG is not communicating with your database. Please check your database settings and try again. Settings can be found under Admin/Setup/General Settings/Database, or at the top of your config.php file. Debugging done: I found an earlier forum topic on this issue but it did not conclude what the error cause is. I have done some debugging and found the following: The TNG help files are basically just html but most of them begin with including a "TNG help header". Here is a code snippet: <?php include("../../helplib.php"); echo help_header("Help: General Settings"); ?> Now helplib.php looks like this: <?php function help_header($helptitle) { $relpath = "../../"; include($relpath . "begin.php"); include($relpath . "version.php"); $header = $tngconfig['doctype'] ? $tngconfig['doctype'] . *** text excluded from code extract *** *** lines excluded from code extract *** return $header; } global $link; ?> So helplib.php includes begin.php In begin.php the last php statement contains a function call of tng_db_connect(): $link = tng_db_connect($database_host,$database_name,$database_username,$database_password,$database_port,$database_socket); I added some echo statements before the function call and found that the problem is that "$database_..." variables are not set (=empty) when function tng_db_connect is called. And this is strange since earlier in begin.php the file config.php (where these variables are set) is indeed included with statement: include($tngconfig['subroot'] . "config.php"); which I checked resolves to include("config.php") in my environment. And even more strange is that the include of config.php works flawless in the "admin_***.php" files. (Yes, I have tested it) Solution found to work: I added an include of config.php in helplib.php as follows (see line in blue color): <?php function help_header($helptitle) { $relpath = "../../"; include($relpath . "config.php"); // Added to make Help pages work in DesktopServer environment include($relpath . "begin.php"); include($relpath . "version.php"); $header = $tngconfig['doctype'] ? $tngconfig['doctype'] . *** text excluded from code extract *** *** lines excluded from code extract *** return $header; } global $link; ?> As far as I have seen so far this solves the problem. Question: Any ideas on what might cause this problem? I can do further debugging as needed, feel free to guide me. Regards Bosse
  16. Is there any way to hide notes pages for all living people? Or even to hide them for everyone?
  17. There is a long thread on this subject started nearly 14 years ago and I was in two minds whether i should start a new one, but as technology has changed in that time and several of the provided links no longer work, I thought it a good idea. Also the last comment on that thread was about 9 months ago. Presumably someone will move this comment to that one, if that is the preferred way to go. Firstly, this is completely new territory for me and totally outside my comfort zone but what the hell, I'm a young 67 and keen to learn! So I want to set up a stand alone copy of my site, so I can 'experiment a little with it, without it affecting my online site and then eventually copy it all across. And play around with this Wordpress thingy. I have successfully downloaded WAMPserver version 3.1.0 - 64 bit latest version and following the guidance notes written by Royce Tivel, which someone kindly provided the link to, earlier in the other thread. I have updated and installed all the redistributable VC packages to make it work and it turns green in the systems tray, as it should. But I am now confused and I wonder whether I am trying to solve problems that might have existed in earlier versions (and when the guidance notes were written) but don't now, such that some of the instruction is irrelevant. For example: there is an instruction to create database tables within the phpadmin database and the instruction is to import the "create_tables.sql" files located at: C:\wamp\apps\phpmyadmin-3.5.3-english\examples\create_tables.sql My version of php is actually 4.7.4 so substituting that for 3.5.3 is my logic but within that folder there is no folder called, 'english'. There is one called, 'examples' but in there, there is nothing called, 'create_tables.sql.' So is this something that is not now necessary to do? Is the file located somewhere else? or indeed, having got Wamp up and running, with no error messages, can I simply copy and paste my online site (SimplyHosting) into Wamp via Filezilla without further ado? If yes, it would be helpful to know what to copy and to where. I hope that is all intelligible to someone. I'm on version 10 of TNG

  19. Installing on a Synology NAS is not a new topic but Synology is evolving its security and file system especially since DSM 5.0 so this may be new material. Background You don't have to read this bit. Go to '3. Set Permissions' if you just want to get on with it. After you've unzipped all the files to your TNG folder, if you happen to log in via an FTP client*, you will notice that all the files and folders have 777 permissions. This might lead you to believe that these are more than necessary to begin setting up TNG. Crucially however Synology DSM 5.0+ does not actually use Unix permissions for the 'web' shared folder access, it uses Windows Access Control List permissions, so you're wasting your time fiddling with Unix permissions. *Ultimately this means you can successfully install TNG without using any FTP client because this can't be used to set the necessary permissions. Just upload and extract the zip file from your PC/Mac using DSM File Station. For example, any file in the 'web' folder after upload will have the 777 Unix permissions. However, if you use the Permission Editor in File Station, you will only see ACL Read permissions enabled. Write are disabled. These appear to overrule the Unix settings that appear in an FTP client. Since the Express set-up uses Unix commands to change permissions, it is ineffective. Therefore.... Set Permissions Follow these instructions for each of the files listed in the set-up. These might change but for me they were: adminlog.txt, config.php, genlog.txt, importconfig.php, logconfig.php, mapconfig.php, pedconfig.php, subroot.php, templateconfig.php and whatsnew.txt In File Station, for all of the above files: Right click on the file and select 'Properties'. Click 'Permission' tab. Click 'Advanced options' and select 'Make inherited permissions explicit'. Select the top user 'http'. Click 'Edit'. Select 'Create files/Write data'. Click 'OK'. Note you could probably do all the above using Windows Explorer via a mapped drive since it will recognise the Win ACL permissions regime used by NAS. I had a look but the dialogues looked more complex then necessary. I think doing it via File Station has less scope for going wrong. Not sure if Macs can also manage Windows ACL. Anyone? Rename Folders You will not be able to rename 'gedcom' or 'backups' folders via the set-up readme.html. So: Rename the folders in File Station by right-clicking on the folder. Using Text Editor*, open config.php. Go to the line starting $backuppath and change the folder name in quotes. Open importconfig.php. Go to the line starting $gedpath and change the folder name in quotes. *I suppose you can use you Windows/Mac/Linux editor with a mapped drive but I used one installed directly to DSM: https://www.synology.com/en-us/dsm/app_packages/TextEditor Go to step '6. Establish Database connection' and everything should work fine via the readme set-up.I've only just started with my genealogy database so I've not touched most of the features. However, so far so good. I will update the above as I find out myself. One last thing, to the total noobs (like me) don't forget to forward port 80 on your router for http traffic to get Internet access.
  20. It's never been a problem for me BEFORE starting this process of setting up my website. But now it's a major problem. Some of my files are so large the software rejects including them in the database. Some large enough that the only way to view them is to hover on the camera icon. Apparently the software rejects making a Thumbnail out of them. This happens when you take photos of photos with an iPhone. It works great with minimal effort, but they're big files! So, what I need is a quick solution. Is there a fix within TNG or do I need to look elsewhere? I would think there are programs that will reduce jpg files as a batch operation but, before I find one and plunge into this, I thought I'd ask for advice from the more experienced. As you might imagine with over 3800 media items I DO NOT want to have to do this one shot at a time. As always, your sage advice is greatly appreciated!
  21. I still have a lot of things to resolve but I am making progress and have learned a lot as I enter day five of this learning process. I've seen Event Maps on my individual pages, but all they ever did was pop up for a split second followed with the displayed message. Now they don't show on the site at all. How to fix? Thank you in advance!
  22. While trying to work out some install issues involving the importing of media, which I've made some progress on, I've run into this. I attempted to generate thumbnails earlier today and after a number of problems was able to see the majority, but not all of them. Then on what was probably my fourth attempt I received the following error message as attached below. Your help, as always, is appreciated.
  23. I'm as new as they come. Just yesterday I downloaded the TNG software, set up an account and received a domain from Simply Hosting. My nearly 24,000 names are on the site. Little camera's indicate photos are waiting to be linked up. So there lies the first question, no doubt followed by more to come. I just read the Import Media Using GEDCOM page in the TNG Wiki. I believe I have a basic understanding of what is expected but, I'm still wondering how to proceed. I've been using Reunion for the Mac software for years. My photos of individuals are spread among many folders. They all begin with the folder name "People" and then within that folder very often the photos are put within folders bearing that person's surname. Then within the surname folder they are put into another folder bearing the individual or their husband's name. In some cases, depending on how many photos I have available for a particular surname, I may just put an individuals photo in a "Miscellaneous" folder among the list of Surname folders. Often times, because I might not have many photos attached to a single individual, I would put their photo within their surname folder in another folder named, again, "Miscellaneous." I've attached a screenshot of my file folder layout to give you a better idea of the situation. After reading the Wiki page mentioned above It appears that the way my photos are organized, spread among numerous multiple folders (probably hundreds), the process of pointing to each would be extremely tedious and time-consuming, assuming you could enter that many paths in the Setup >> Configuration >> Import Settings screen. So, here comes the question. Is there any way to make this process easier? Do I need to reorganize all these photos on my computer (and there are hundreds, likely more) into a limited number of folders in order to make the process of setting the paths easier? That's an awful lot of files contained in a few folders! As I understand it, if I do that I would have to export another GEDCOM file overwriting everything that's on the site. Not a big deal I suppose. We haven't even gotten to my equal number of headstone photos that are likewise organized, nor the hundreds of documents, some histories and other media that I will need to move to the website. Is there anything else I'm missing? My organization of these numerous files have worked well over the years within Reunion. It isn't perfect and I occasionally stray from "the norm." But, I'm not so sure it is an ideal system for moving them to my TNG website. Thanks you so much for your help and consideration in this matter and, as you might guess, it is very much appreciated! http://bit.ly/ClearfieldDescendants
  24. I'm installing tng and when I go through the express install everything works fine and when I finish, the Diagnostics page shows everything installed correctly. But if I logout and try to log back in, TNG does not recognize my username and password. I've even tried to use the password and username recovery, but tng says that the username is not associated with my email address. One other problem I'm having is that when I try to import my gedcom (2meg) tng will only import about 135 people and stops. I have the gedcom stored in my gedcom folder. It was generated by FTM-2017, but I have also tried using a gedcom made directly from ancestry.com with the same results. The data that it does import seems to be correct. Help. Russ
  25. Is there anyone else out there running TNG & WP on a Synology box? Cos I am really struggling. By default Syno does not allow WP to be installed into the root and I have deployed the suggested workarounds. But I have been round the installation loop twice already for various reasons and now I am faced with doing it a third time. This time it's because while customising the WP Theme I got an error Non-existent changeset UUID Following some advice on WordPress.org I edited the wordpress location in phpMyAdmin but now the installation is dead. However I try to login, no dice. Restoring the data base values has no effect, so a reinstall is inevitable. The forum folks thought that installation was desirable too I don't think I have the energy to do it again. I am beginning to think I would be better off installing standalone TNG & WP and cross linking using simple URL's. Thoughts? (especially from other Synology NAS owners) -Paul
