    Photos/Media not viewable TNG13

    After installing TNG13 and importing a gedcom file, all information appears to loaded into the site. I checked my phpmyadmin and verified all the info is there as well. On my site, clicking the PHOTOS link, all photos and details are listed. Problem is that none of the photos can be SEEN, only the filename/description/ID etc. No thumbnail, no photo. All the information from the gedcom is there, you just can't SEE it. Any ideas what I should do?

    Tree Not Viewable

    I just got TNG v13 installed and running. I imported my gedcom, which appeared to be successful (all people/places/media/sources/etc ). Now my problem is that I can't view the tree. If I click on the links at the top of the home page (eg "His Side"/"Her Side") I get a page does not exist error. The links for each one point to "mywebsitename/pedigree.php?personID=I2&tree=tree1" but it goes to the "this page does not exit" error page. If I look at SURNAMES or PLACES or PHOTOS etc in the links at the bottom of the home page all the items show up. What is the problem actually viewing the tree? If you need more information I will gladly tell you all I can. Server Info: Ubuntu Server 20.04 + Apache2 + PHP 7.4.3 + MySQL 8 Thanks in adavance for any help!

    Refresh Living

    When I clicked on "Refresh Living" under Import/Export, there were a lot of deceased ancestors showing on "Living" list. Something this has to be fixed. I don't want to have so much time consuming on UNCHECK "Living" on each deceased ancestors. What can I do with this? Thanks,
  6. I am curious to hear from some power users on how they are maintaining their places table. I have a smaller family tree that I have only had time to dabble in from time to time. I had started by transcribing a Great Aunt's family history from paper into a genealogy program called Brother's Keeper. But I converted to TNG when I found that it was easier for quick access anywhere I had internet access. Now as I go back and try to clean up my places to bring some consistency I cannot decide if I want to define places for particular street addresses or not. I would like to hear how others in the community approach the maintenance of their places.
  7. I am a newbie to TNG and have managed to install and got working my site as here: Website: https://wilkinsonfamily.site TNG Version: TNG 13.0 Template: 13 I am finding the various instructions and guidelines in the admin help and the wiki are helpful but very confusing. I want to make some basic configuration changes and additions to the site but I can't figure out where to start. What I need is a guide as to how, what, where I need to make changes in order to add or delete or change the pages - mainly the home page - to suit my purposes. For instance, if I want to add a hit counter to the main page footer, where do I insert the html code to call the function? TIA.

    hiding media for unauthorised users

    Hi all, On my site (http://genealogie.vanhoboken.nl) I use the mod "Public Access Control" to prevent the access to photo's by not-logged-in users. This works certainly ok but as soon as a user is authorised for a tree, it has access to all media. Is there a way (or mod) that allows the logged-in-user only to see the media that is linked to the branche he is authorised for? Thanks for any help Alex

    Add Blacklist for Mod downloads

    Using the Click Counter II Email Notify Mod, I was receiving a significant number of 'Download not authorized' emails which were from the same IP address. Remove gender row v9.2.2.0 was requested by User:Anonymous IP: ( Country: United States Region: Virginia City: Ashburn… A search of the IP shows it to be known as Spam, Web Application Attacks, Hacking, Other Online Attacks, Spam by Email, Spam on WebSite. Last week the emails from that IP changed details of the Country etc to another. Remove gender row v9.2.2.0 was requested by User:Anonymous IP: ( and ( Country: Netherlands Region: City: It is more than likely that Mods that do not restrict mod downloads to TNG Wiki logged-in users would be receiving such requests. Is it possible to add an extension (eg SpamBlacklist) to LocalSettings.php of the Wiki to add a blacklist to stop these requests?

    Is there a method to link to another web site

    I would like to link to another web site which has dozens of photos about my family. How do I do that either on a general manner or specifically within a individual's data presentation? Thank you so much Michael Dietz charmike238@gmail.com
  11. Hi All! Wierd thing happen... I use tng v12.3, Rick too With the same gedcom, our sites looks different. I specify that no Mod is installed on both sites and changing of template have no effect too... This gedcom contains a special case : two persons are married twice : once in 1846 , the second marriage the jul 4, 1865. (Gedcom line 350 and next) Those two marriage are concerning Peter SWINDELLS and Mary GARDINER. Can some of you try to import this little gedcom (20 families) and look what is showing on his screen? Michel By Rick, this result in a second line for the second marriage :(see wife 2) On my site, this result in NO lines for the second mariage. Rick.ged

    Member sign in password

    The members select their own password and there is no password setting requirement. My members are insisting strong password requirement as they would be putting their family info. I need Capital+small+numbers+special charactors (@,#,%,&,) and minimum 6charactors. If members generating password does not meet the requirement, it should reject and give reasons. Is there any solutions in TNG ? Will appreciate feedback Thanks Kris

    AKA data

    Is there any way to insert a nickname or an alias for a person? I see that there is a place for nickname, but I guess what confuses me is that I have a database in Legacy that includes a place for an alias for each individual, but that data didn't seem to get transferred. I notice that in the GED file, the nicknames are shown as 1 Name /Nick/ and this always occurs right after 2 SURN surname and then is followed by 2 GIVN 2 SURN Nick which really confuses me What does TNG do with that nickname?

    'Personal information' and 'All'

    For some reason my individuals are now shown using 'Personal information' as default, and not 'All' (as it used to be). I have tried everything I can think of to get my installation to use 'all' again (It seems to be independent of choice of template, and mods). Does anyone have an idea? Henning
  15. On this site https://finnholbek.dk/getperson.php?personID=I898&tree=2 when you put your mouse over a url you see the information with clickable links. I am using 12.1 and I do not get this, should I upgrade to the 12.3 now and will I get it then? I looked for a mod that may do it but did not find one. I think this is excellent for navigation. Thanks Shaz
  16. I was disappointed tonight to discover no Heatmap button after a search involving my census records. Is this because they are held as an event? (IE The PLACE is not in the main person record but off in a child?) Is it an enhancement we could reasonably ask for - would be very useful?

    Deceased person - uncheck Living?

    When updating a dead person with date of death etc. I would expect that the person's status as Living should be unchecked automatically. Or do I have to uncheck it manually?

    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.
  19. Hi all; I had posted this in another, older, thread but decided perhaps it should be here. Forgive me for any duplication. I'm still struggling to get the Simile Timeline to work properly. I've made the changes referenced earlier in this thread, in terms of changes to the history_html file, and by installing the revised Timeline by SKDavis. I much appreciate all the help. Here are the errors that are showing on the page. Can anyone help me with these errors, or point me to things to read or learn that might help me? simile-ajax-bundle.js:1541 TypeError: Cannot read property 'documentElement' of null "XmlHttp: Error handling onReadyStateChange" I have additional errors - similar verbiage - that I did not include, just for brevity. If I can find the error in this one, perhaps it will lead to the solution in the others. Maybe? Thanks for any help or direction. Mike
  20. how many simultaneous users may be logged in, searching and generating charts?
  21. 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)

    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
  23. Please bear with me but I am new to TNG. I have uploaded about a dozen images of photographs of some decendants and some of the document relating to them. When viewing all media, the thumbnails are shown in a table which is fully populated with the data I've input, except the right hand column headed "Linked to" the options when adding new media is to link the image to a person but not an event? How do I achieve this? many thanks Alan wbsite address (alanwingfield.co.uk)

    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
  25. 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?
