    Thumbnails and fotos

    Hi, I have a problem generating Thumbnails. (Original) fotos to individuals are linked, shown and in the proper directory. However if I try to generate Thumbnails from them I get an error message. Any idea where I did not set the proper permission (...according to the error message) or what else the problem might be? Bye Michael
  2. I have spent about 60 hours working over the last week on linking sources and media to people. Tonight I said to myself, "you really ought to back things up after making all of those changes". So I went to the Utilities page, selected all of my files and in the "With selected" field I (stupidly) selected "Restore" instead of "Backup". So, of course, it restored all of my files to their state on June 3, before I spent 60 hours modifying them. :-( To top it off, I discovered that my hosting service wasn't running automatic backups, so I can't restore from there. I'm probably totally screwed, but is there any secret door in TNG that I can use to unrestore my restore?

    What is an Image Map?

    I thought I knew what the image map feature would do from the edit photo screen, but after numerous attempts, I'm unable to see any result whatsoever. My impression was that you can outline a section of a bigger photo and add that cropped version as an image to another person's page. i.e. Take a photo of several people and from wihin the edit photo page, using the Image Map section, crop an image of just one of them, making it the default photo for that individual's page. I go through the entire process, assign what I've just done to an individual and see the code in the Image Map box below the photo. I save the results, but nothing ever shows on the targeted individual's page. Am I mistaken? If I am, maybe someone can explain what the feature is designed to accomplish. If I'm correct, what magic step am I overlooking? Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
  4. I just finished the install of TNG following the instructions provided. All appeared to go smoothly but I have a number of problems most pressing appears to be the Theme. It's not rendering properly. When I open the site none of the button images appear. Instead I get blue placeholders with a ? mark. (see attachment). So the Theme's images are not being found. I've loaded a GEDCOM file with little success. Some data (see attachment2) is loaded but doesn't appear within the theme. I've attempted to load an image into the front page as a header and that hasn't worked as well. I must have an install problem that's impacting the Theme's rendering. I created a Sub Domain on my primary domain for TNG and I'm wondering if this might be causing the issue. The site resides here: tree.goldings.ca I've spent a lot of time attempting to resolve this on my own. Any help would be appreciated. Chris

    Disabling Menus for Mobile

    I have disabled the display of menus on my site by changing Setup >> Configuration >> General Settings >> Site Design and Definition - Menu Location to "Do not display" and it works like a charm. However, when viewing my site on a Mobile device, the menus are still there. What else should I do to make sure the menus do not display on Mobile devices also. Thank you. P.S. I use Template 13 with version TNG 12.1.0.

    How to add an ALIAS to a Person

    I have tried to find an answer to my question in the Forums but I have not been able to find one. I am creating a web site where several persons have a 'name in religion' because they were either nuns or brothers. I am using the 'Nickname' field for this and it is working splendidly. But I face the problem where several written forms were used for a common name (e.g. NADEAU, NADAULT, NADEAULT, and so on). I would like therefore to associate the 'normalized form', which is NADEAU to all persons, no matter what SURNAME I enter. I was thinking of using the ALIAS to write this normalized name when an individual is using a non-normalized name. I was always under the impression that ALIAS could be used for that. Where or how can I enter a persons' s ALIAS within the TNG interface? Thank you

    Cookie Error log

    I appreciate if anyone can help me with my error log. I use the mod: Show PHP Error Log and get: PHP Warning: setcookie() expects parameter 2 to be string, array given in /home/path/..../tng/begin.php on line 18
  8. Hi - can anyone help me please. I've finished customising my template (16) on my computer, I'm using TNG v12.03 everything seems to be fine. I've uploaded to my new domain, www.fourbranches.co.uk -again everything seems fine. I'm logged in as admin - so in theory should be able to see all details whether living or dead or private. However, I decided to check something on my dad's page - he passed February 2018, I get just his name, dates and his relationship to me - I've added screenshots of what I'm seeing below. So I checked my brother's page - he passed in January this year, I get the same things! I checked my daughters and my own individual pages - everything shows - my 3x Great Grandfather - just the same as my dad and brother - so it can't be a privacy issue assuming that they only passed recently. Does anyone know of any reason this should be? And a solution perhaps please. - Just added screenshot of mods I have installed in case it might be one of those causing the problem! Thank you in advance Beverley
  9. I'm trying to modify template 12. My website https://www.slektogdata.no/kolanordmenn/ I would like the text in the middle to change according to the language selected. I have a line in cust_text.php with the translation in the affected languages ($text['veltext'] = "Allered.........). This should work, but when I replace the text in template_12 with echo $text['veltext'] , I just see the code, not the text. Where is the error ?
  10. How do I change the ID numbers after the gedcom import, or before or during the import ? I want the main (oldest) ancestor to be i1, wife i2, and all descendants in order of birth have subsequent numbers. father= i1, mother= i2 Child 1= i3 Child2= i4 etc. Thank you !

    ID number

    I want to create a database in which I can do all deeds, photos and documents in a folder per person, for these folders I want to use the ID number of this person. Now my question remains the ID number always the same of a person, or changed this ID number when I add new people in my family tree. Greetings Helmer Zandbergen www.helmerzandbergen.nl

    Geocode Problems

    Running TNG 12.0.3 with Google Maps API When making new geocode requests the following error is returned "Could not be geocoded (REQUEST_DENIED)". There is no problem with places already geocoded, or with place where I enter geocode information manually. Only when making a batch request. This is a relatively new problem - the last month or so. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks! Mark
  13. This might make a helpful wiki entry, but I'm not comfortable with my expertise and so I submit it to the group for discussion, refinement and a decision on whether to put it in the wiki. Some folks may be having difficulty upgrading their sites to PHP 7 -- especially if they have code outside of TNG. (For example, I have numerous "sub sites" at http://MyKindred.com that use contact forms and other pages that currently won't work under PHP 7). Here is a good article -- How to Check PHP Version Compatibility After much searching, I settled on php7mar -- https://github.com/Alexia/php7mar I am doing my development using XAMPP on a Win-10 desktop. To run this, I open the command prompt and type -- php mar.php -f="path.to.tolder.or.file" PHP7MAR generates markdown format reports. The report for my web site was over 150 kB. A sample is below (the error at the top of the report is due to my version of XAMPP using PHP 5.6): 2019-01-21T14:43:02-06:00 Scanning C:\Users\.....\public_html Including file extensions: php ERROR!

    Getting lots of spam since 12.0

    I just recently installed V 12.0 on my system. Now, all of a sudden I am getting bombarded with spam. What can I do to cure this?
  15. Just a question. Is there a special reason for the fact that there is a admin-folder, which is empty, and all the admin*-files are in the root-directionary? Could i move them to the admin-folder?

    Sort any media by date

    Question from newbie, Is it possible to sort any media for a specific person by date automatically ? Currently I think, the order is by description, and when description is missing, the file-specification is used as standard description for sorting. Greetings from Germany Michael

    PHPMailer end of life

    I have received a notification to say that " Outdated script detected on: (my web site) This is a notification that the PHPMailer installation in /htdocs/TNG on hosting account (my account), is end of life (version 5.2.22).

  18. TNG v.12.0.2 Families Issue I’ve been struggling with this and maybe I can get some guidance. I need to add parents to I716. I click Add New Parents (0). And it brings me to the Add New Family screen and creates a new Family ID (F1028). Below that is the Spouses/Partners box (I find that misleading as I’m trying to add parents). I click on Find as the father & mother do exist and add their ID#. They already have a family ID (F1019) and I’m just trying to add an additional son. Saving creates two Family IDs for the same father and mother but with son #1 in one ID, and son #2 in the other. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any assistance.
  19. Without success from another source, I am posting here in hopes someone will tell me what I am doing wrong with the validation code AND answer the two questions at the end: I have added a field to the “newacctform.php” as follows (in the table) <tr><td valign="top"><?php echo $text['howrelate']; ?>*:</td><td><textarea cols="50" rows="4" name="howrelate"></textarea></td></tr> I have the text right and I believe everything else is correct. The form works fine until I go to try to “validate” the field. This is what (and where) I have currently: <script type="text/javascript"> function validateForm(form) { var rval = true; if( form.username.value.length == 0 ) { alert("<?php echo $text['enterusername']; ?>"); rval = false; } else if( form.password.value.length == 0 ) { alert("<?php echo $text['enterpassword']; ?>"); rval = false; } else if( form.password2.value.length == 0 ) { alert("<?php echo $text['enterpassword2']; ?>"); rval = false; } else if( form.password.value != form.password2.value ) { alert("<?php echo $text['pwdsmatch']; ?>"); rval = false; } else if( form.realname.value.length == 0 ) { alert("<?php echo $text['enterrealname']; ?>"); rval = false; } else if( form.<?php echo $_SESSION['tng_email']; ?>.value.length == 0 || !checkEmail(form.<?php echo $_SESSION['tng_email']; ?>.value)) { alert("<?php echo $text['enteremail']; ?>"); rval = false; } else if( form.em2.value.length == 0 ) { alert("<?php echo $text['enteremail2']; ?>"); rval = false; } else if( form.howrelate.value.length == 0 ) { alert("<?php echo $text['howrelatepop']; ?>"); rval = false; } else if( form.<?php echo $_SESSION['tng_email']; ?>.value != form.em2.value ) { alert("<?php echo $text['emailsmatch']; ?>"); rval = false; } return rval; } </script> I have tried to place the validation field in different locations but no matter where I put it, when I fill out the form and submit – I get the message that the “user name is already taken”. IF all I do is remove the validation statement, the form is working and submitting just fine, and everything works as designed. Is it possible to tell me where I am going wrong with the validation? Second – once I get this working, where do I need to go to tell the submittal to include the newly added field information when I go to review the new user. And finally, as an extra bit of question – When an error occurs such as “password does not match” an alert is generated which may be java script but I'm not certain. Where can I find this alert so I can change the part at the top that now says “my website name” – for example, your password doesn’t match or any other error has occurred.
  20. I have a FRESH install of v11.1.2 with template 13 and no MODs installed. I installed the files, imported a GEDCOM, and did the setup. I used the readme.html "simple" setup to get the permissions, etc. The only non-standard thing was that I used the option to move the specified *config.php files to a location above my public_html folder. My system is closed and users must register to view any content. I set up a branch and added the labels so that I have 57 people in 17 families in the branch. I added a demo user with only guest privileges on the (only) tree and restricted the user to the specified branch. But when the user signs in, they have access to all non-living persons in the tree. They can also download gedcoms and make suggested edits - even though they were denied those privileges when the user was created. I cannot post a user/password in a public forum because this would open my entire database of non-living people to the public. Any ideas about what is wrong with my security? Is this the correct forum? Ray (the TNG nubie)
  21. Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to give a person, for example, 5 or 10 queries in the database before registration?
  22. Hello, I have problems with the display of characters in French. Following a request for help, I received this answer from Mr Lythgoe: « As for the accents, it sounds like you need to change the character set being used in TNG. When you get back in, go to Admin/Setup/General Settings/Language and choose "French-UTF8" as the language file and "UTF-8" as the character set. You may have to log out and back in again or clear your browser cookies before you notice the difference. » I adjusted these parameters and followed all the instructions, but I still have the same problems with characters. è, à, ê With a Imac, Safari, Firfox and IPAd, same problem. Can you help me ? Thank you Jean-Pierre Levasseur
  23. I'm hoping somebody can help with this problem. A person married. He and his wife had two children together. Then he had an "affair" with somebody else and had a child. Then he returned to his wife and they had a further two children. So child number 3 has a different mother than 1, 2, 4 and 5. How do I show all of this in the correct order in TNG? Thamks in advance, Allen Maunder
  24. I have v.12.0.1 and everything works with the exception that on an iPad or iPhone the keyboard remains on the display after entering a name in the search box. Tested with Safari and Chrome with the same results. In addition, clicking on any link on the interface brings up the keyboard. Any ideas? Mobile settings attached.
