    Multiple names

    Hello I am a new user of TNG, so I will be the 1st to admit to being confused about some of its more elementary features. However, despite searching, I did not to seem to find a solution to the following problem (or rather, desire): I would like to be able to display more than one name for a person on an individual's page. I do have a preferred name in my desktop software (FTM 2017), but also record other names (spelling variations [I record the sources for these], original language when a person moved to an English-speaking location (e.g., French or German), original script [Chinese and Arabic]), romanized versions of Chinese and Arabic, married names, nicknames, etc.). Other than nicknames, which have their own field, I cannot get more than once instance of a GEDCOM name field to be imported and displayed. Is this possible? Is there a MOD for it? I had thought of putting (for example) Chinese script in the prefix or suffix, but this is not ideal. I am using Template 13 if it makes a difference. Thank you!
  2. Hi, I created 2 identical sites (one for my dad's family and one for my mom's family). I am in failing health and would like to get everything set up and working well for the next generation to take over. Cannot pay much, but I am hoping the changes I need won't take long, and can therefore be inexpensive. Since the sites are identical, the changes for one site will just be copied to the other, so I am only really changing code for one site. I have a WORD file itemizing the needed changes. I don't have the strength or time left to learn how to code (though I've tried to learn what I could in the last few weeks, but with limited success), so need to get some help. If interested, you can take a look at one of the sites at www.neely-heritage.com . I have created a guest account with the following login credentials : User ID = Guest Password = Family You can contact me at neely.research@yahoo.com if interested - and I will share the list of changes with you. Mostly, it is just changing the menu on the home page, and on the person page - and also where things are displayed on the person page (along with some colors). My cousin is in IT, and although her schedule (working 3 jobs right now) doesn't permit her the time to help, she took a quick look at the list of changes and said someone who already understands TNG could probably make all of the changes in 2 to 4 hours, depending on their skill level. Thank you. Del K.
  3. All I have question in configuring TNG-11 With template 8 When opening individual Tab the event map is in expanded view by default how to configure this that it is in collapse mode. or how to remove the event map Some question for Photos but than the other way around so by devoid open in Expand mode Or How to open a individual tab direct with the personal Information instead of the all information Thanks on for hand Chris
  4. Hi all, I recently (finally) updated to V11, and decided on using another template, along with this new TNG version. I choose 'Template 15'. The question is: am I supposed to be able to use a 'PHP include' in a main page text box in this 'Template 15'? (I want to use Roger's 'Birthday list' on my front page.) The include works if I create a separate test.php page (with nothing else in it) and put the include in there. But if I paste the include in a main page text box of 'Template 15', nothing happens. Am I missing something obvious? Thx.
  5. Title says it all. What do I need to edit to remove the blue background please?
  6. I am setting up the TNG Template (using No 13) I swapped out the header image. Because I am hosting TNG on my Synology NAS I was able to save the file directly to the web\genealogy\photos folder. The image is appearing on the home page but when I query the photos folder, it does not appear in the listing. It clearly IS present in the correct folder because I was able to select it in Template setup and view it through Windows File Explorer. What am i missing please? Thanks for listening - Paul
  7. I am using Template 4 on my site with TNG v. 11.0.2. I was able to comment out most of the menu items that I did not want showing – namely genlib.php and the Template 4 topmenu.php and index.php. Template 4 has drop-down menus on the secondary pages and I would like to totally remove the “Media” tab. I can’t figure that one out. http://www.mccartyandmccoy.com/surnames.php On the second page of the statistics, it shows my email address. Is there a way to remove the email from showing?
  8. Hi! I am trying to change the color attribute as seen in the background light blue box of the pedigree view in the attached pic. Is is a actual image from an img folder; or a color code attribute found in a php, css, js file? I have tried examining numerous times with the "inspect" function, but cant seem to find the right item. Thanks for the help on this one! Jeff
  9. Hi! Several People have hinted on the advantage of writing a mod to save one's customizations, but how exactly do i write the mod for that? I have looked in the wiki and here on the forum, but perhaps I missed it somewhere? Thanks! Jeff :D
  10. Hi! I looked in the genlib.php and a number of other places to find much less how to remove the "find a grave" and "billiongraves" from the menu tab. Any ideas? Thanks! Jeff
  11. I am wondering why a reasonably sized image is not shown fully at 100% within the frame of the viewer. It is close but usually the full height of the image is not seen at first view. This problem applies to all images, all sizes. I have set up for media as 'Image max height = 600' and Image max width = 800'. Please see clip below. The image will show at 100% when hovered over in the photo list. It also shows the full image in slideshow. And I know it can be viewed in full at 75% when in the viewer. But I would like to see the full image there - all edges of frames, etc. - without adjustment. I suspect that this is a template issue (Template 14) . . . perhaps in genstyle.css or templatestyle.css. Can I enlarge the viewer - especially height? Are the viewer dimensions specified in .css files? If so, how do I adjust? Is there a way to choose 'always view at 75%" in the viewer as default? Or is this a computer screen limitation (using 17" laptop)? Other ideas? Thanks!

    Index Page in template

    Does anyone know how I can increase the size of my index page (?padding) so that I can add more text and information - using and customising Template 5
  13. I am working on Media in 11.02, template 14. Can anyone suggest a way to show the physical location as a field name for the list rather than the geocode location? I realize one can enter the location in the description field but it would be ever so neat to have a toggle switch for that field heading - or the option to change it in the template code. An actual 'place' in that column would make more sense to most of my 'audience'. Certainly NOT a high priority but I was wondering if anyone had made that change? MSB
  14. Is there any way to add the tng menu bar, and or enlarge the index page in template 4? I used template 4 as first template but now the new updated tng version is giving me a very hard time. Any ideas? Template 4 is a really good template only would like to see larger index page and or tngnav with drop down menus on index page.
  15. Have modified many of TNG's templates successfully, but have one quirky issue which I'm hoping someone else has encountered. For uniformity of pages, have enabled the 'tng_header' (i.e., topmenu) within index.php and then created my own design for the rest of the page. In this example, Template 9's menu 'tube' appears properly, and all functions fine, with one exception. The 'left icon' group's 'login' does nothing, whereas the 'logout' works fine. Browser (Chrome) Inspection shows an error of 'Uncaught ReferenceError: LITBox is not defined(…) net.js:88'. This occurs only in templates 9-14, the other 9 templates do not have this error with 'login'. To isolate the error, only modifying the following lines in template 9's index.php properly displays the tube menu, but produces the non-functioning 'login' symptom: $flags['noicons'] = true; $flags['noheader'] = true; to: $flags['noicons'] = false; $flags['noheader'] = false; The tube menu 'login' functions fine on all other pages; it's only on the homepage that this occurs. Any ideas what is causing this? Running TNG 11.0.2. Ron
  16. Lex van der Loo


    First, let me introduce myself: Lex van der Loo, living in The Netherlands. I used TNG v7 for a long time. Now I am upgrading to V11. My temp. website can be found at: http://test.lexvanderloo.cc I installed version 11.0.2, used template #4, imported my gecom-export from v7, cleand up the places-table with some SQL and the help of the ER-diagram from Robin Richmond (thnx) TNG is beautifull! Now I want to change some of the colors and HERE IS A PROBLEM: the colors won't change. Here is what I did (and obviously I must have done something wrong) 1. I used T.N.G. COLOURING BOOK by Erik Hoppe (thnx) to generate a 'mytngstyle.css' (included) (Yes I know I only need to include the changed styles) 2. I renamed the two mytngstyle.css-files in /css and in /templates/template4/css. 3. I copied the new mytngstyle.css to the two maps. 4. Changed the ownership and rights. When I start TNG (open TNG in my browser and renew the window), I stil get the old colors. In the sourcecode (included) of the page I see the following: line 23 <link href="templates/template4/css/mytngstyle.css?v=11.0.2" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> And when I open that link I get an almost empty mytngstyle.css with only thios text: /*your custom style goes in this file*/ /*if you're overriding style blocks from genstyle.css, you only need to include the attributes you're overriding, not the whole block*/ Help! What is wrong/what am I doing wrong. Lex van der Loo mytngstyle.css sourcecode.txt
  17. ** RC1 for NearDark, NearDawn and the installer have been withdrawn. v10.1.0.2 for both templates and the installer are now available. ** Ever wanted to try a 'drop in' replacement for Template 8 that doesn't have all that visual clutter and hard to read fonts? I've just produced v10.1.0.2, release candidate 1 for the NearDark and NearDawn templates and pared them with a new installer that makes the templateconfig.php changes, folds in the menu bar changes that used to be provided by the Icon Gravity mod, and adds localized language files for Spanish (and Spanish-UTF8) Features: Surname clouds that can be controlled from the template configuration page. You can hide/show them and control the number of surnames. The "Mom's Side" and "Dad's Side" elements of the left menu can also be hidden or shown. "Scrolling Content" is a new feature that allows you to switch the main page between fixed height content columns that scroll, and non-scrolling columns that show all your content. (Template configuration page.) Internationalization - NearDark and NearDawn are now fully internationalized with Spanish support provided out-of-the-box as a test case. All New: I've created an installation mod called NearD Support that does all the installation work for you. Just unpack the templates in the TNG's template directory, unpack and install the mod and you should be good to go. One caution, once you start configuring the templates through their configuration page, NearD Support will complain about not being able to roll back the templateconfig.php changes (obviously). So pulling out the NearDark and NearDawn elements in templateconfig.php has to be done manually after the initial install. NearD Support folds in the changes to the menu bar that used to be provided by Icon Gravity. So no need to add that mod any longer. I'll also be adding more languages as I get assistance with the phrases. v10.1.0.2-rc1 of NearDark, NearDawn, and NearD Support should work for TNG 10.1.0 and later, but I've done most of my testing against TNG 11. You can see examples on the Wiki pages for NearDark and NearDawn, but these haven't been updated yet for the new features. If you give these a try, please let me know what you think. Thanks, Bill Herndon
  18. Soon after I started using TNG to host Lindell-Herndon Genealogy, I created a pair of templates derived from Template 8 called NearDark and NearDawn.  Since then a number of TNG users have asked if they can use my templates. Unfortunately, not having the time to do all the necessary CSS work, my templates required 5 TNG mods to achieve the effects I wanted, making them impractical for most users. Now I've finished the CSS work, and my templates depend on only a single mod, Icon Gravity. So I've decided to publish them for anyone to use. Check out the Wiki pages (links above) for some previews. You can download the NearDark package here, or NearDawn here. Bill Herndon
  19. Hi all! I'm new to TNG11 and this is my first post in the forum. I'm looking forward to diving in here. I'm working on initial setup of my site and am customizing the look of template 15. What I'd like to have is a background/wall paper that is behind the main content (see mocked up spotted background in attached screenshot). If I change the background-color css property of body{} It changes the color of the entire background. I'm guessing that I need to add another DIV container that the main content will sit in but having issues. Does anyone have any idea of how to accomplish this? My site: http://family.copelandramblings.com/index.php Thanks for the help!
  20. 1 Day in to this and trying to change my template default images to one of my 5,000 uploaded. To my surprise, it only opens to browse on my local machine and not my uploaded images. Any suggestions from you veterans? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Template #13

    Hello, I don't know why but I have a bug on the template 13 http://www.genealogie.lepagedamerique.com/ The photo and the text have disappear... If I go in the administrator side to template and go to the configuration of the template... and choose preview, I cannot see the table of the parameters under the template. it's the second time that I have the same problem on week ago. No possibility to modify any parameters of the template. I can give a ftp access to the folder of the tng. Congratulations for you great software. I'm french speaking. Thanks for your help Andre
  22. In the Template 10 website I'm setting up I do not anticipate having any Histories type of media items. How can I remove the Histories menu item from the left hand menu? Many thanks! == Bob
  23. I am new to TNG and am using Template 10 for my site. I would like to change the title of the FEATURES box on the right side of the home page to GUIDES. Is if possible to do this? If so, do I make the change in the Template 10 index.php file? And specifically which line(s)? Many thanks! Bob
  24. I have managed to customize Template 15, finally. Any thoughts (or bug reports) much appreciated. This link takes you to my paternal grandfather (visitor for both login and pw to get you in): Federico Lippi
  25. This has also been posted on the tngusers2 list. Would like to modify the ‘search’ (see below) on template11 index.php to include the Person ID, in addition to the First Name, Last Name located just above the ‘search’ click button. Below that are the normal menu items. This would be similar to the fields in the dropdown ‘quick search’ activated by admin:setup which contains 3 fields, first name,last name, and ID. It is not a ‘equal, contains, starts with’ field, just the ID match. Did copy some code from searchform.php, but haven’t been able to effectively remove the array ‘equal,contains,starts with’ and just set with equal to the data entered for submission to the search. Entering directly on the Home page saves an extra click to get to another page besides the homepage to enter the ID. Also using the Married Name in Search MOD as well, which is a really simplifies searching for women. Alternatively, could use the index.php menu item ‘advanced search’, converting it to a quick search, but the admin:setup doesn’t effect that, even though both call searchform.php. Thanks in advance for any help. Note: also using Chris Moss's Married Name Search mod as well at this time.
