    Not showing Living and Private persons at all

    When persons are marked private or living they will show up as ‘Living’ or ‘Private’ and no personal data is shown. My question is if it is possible to not show the person at all. Reason is that by showing just the person as living or private with the gender you already reveal personal information that I would like to hide. Example: If a family has 5 children and 2 of those are living or private I want to see only 3 children and not 5.

    Solved: Character set problem with just one individual

    Hi I need a little bit of help from clever experts. In Danish we have many special characters i.e. æ, ø, å - and we often use ü, which I also have in my own surname. Issue: On data about myself all the characters are wrong. On all others persons they are correct. Here is an example: https://tng.stegemueller.dk/getperson.php?personID=I630&tree=HBS You can see that Stegemüller is correct on my father Jørgen Stegemüller in the field "Name". The line line below with the field "Relationship" I am spelled "Stegem?ller". If you go to data about me here: https://tng.stegemueller.dk/getperson.php?personID=I1&tree=HBS you'll see that it is crazy with all the special characters. Data/characters about myself in the GEDCOM-file are correct. The GEDCOM-file is encoded with: "1 CHAR UTF-8". (Data come from Legacy Pro) Notepad++ tells: UTF-8 in the right corner in the bottom. In TNG I have the same as always: Setup >> Configuration >> General Settings: Language folder = "Danish UTF-8" and Character set: "UTF-8" In phpMyAdmin the database has collation as always: utf8_unicode_ci I have never experienced this before. How can it be correct on everybody except me? What can I do to make everybody correct? Well edited: If you look here: https://tng.stegemueller.dk/search.php?mybool=AND&myfirstname=&mylastname=wagnholt you can see, that there are more issues wit i.e. "ø"

    Do I need to create thumbnails off-line?

    This must sound like a dumb question, but does TNG have some sort of process for creating thumbnails, or do I need to do it off-line for each photo that I upload?

    Single spacing

    How can I change my forum posts from double spacing to single spacing? And why are my Setting in my account shaded out and can't access them? Thanks John Paul
  5. Can anyone suggest why the same text icon, used as a thumbnail for ALL TNG media text (not rtf or doc/x) documents, shows for only for some of the text media uploaded to TNG. See: https://culbert.one-name.net/browsemedia.php?mediasearch=&tnggallery=0&mediatypeID=add&offset=0&tree=&tngpage=1 On page one of three, in the thumb(nail) column, the text icon (with a brown border) sometimes shows, but more often only shows the media title. This situation persists on the second and third pages. I have selected this icon every time when creating the thumbnail for ALL text documents in this media collection. I use a different icon for rtf documents, for which there is no issue. Jim Culbert
  6. About a year and half ago my son did a TNG software update and after that update thousands of my links to my source data disappeared. I have been meticulous about entering the links and now they are gone. What happened and is there a way to recover the missing inks. Thanks, Kathy Horan-Grambsch

    Data Protection Policy in Danish

    I'm educated lawyer, so I also have focus on GDPR, rules and regulations. Therefore I've translated Data Protection Policy file into Danish, so that it is almost according to Danish (means European) rules. On my own I have on added this - so this is not part of the standard file (it is my own "invention"): Almost because: According to the Danish/European rules it should to be possible to accept some cookies and reject others before entering the site. TNG does not offer this possibility. You can only accept, because the button says "OK" and nothing else. Conclusion: You can download and use my file if you like. It is so precise as possible according to the rules. But it is not 100 percent legally. But you will show your customers that you have done so much as possible. data_protection_policy.php

    readme.html in Danish

    readme.html is now available in Danish. Darrin has approved the translation. You can grab the latest version of the file from here. Darrin suggested, that I placed a link to the Danish video guide for absolutely beginners in readme.html. So that link is now placed in the very beginning (line 380) with a text that means this in Danish: readme.html

    Install readme.html hangs.

    Hello, I am just attempting to reinstall TNG v12.3 after a year away from it. I am having difficulty getting TNG initialized on my home server. TNG is installed at location C:\xampp\htdocs\tng I started to follow your excellent YouTube video for installation and didn't get very far with the readme.html file before it hung up. The readme.html file is correctly accessed through my browser from http://localhost/tng/readme.html as shown in the attached snapshot below. I get to step 3 Set Permissions in the readme.html file, click the set permission button and receive the following " Please wait, attempting to process..." which never is returned. The same thing happens when I click the rename folders button in Step 4. Is there a way to do this manually if the readme.html file does not work? Exactly what permissions are to be set here anyways? I am using version 12.3 14 of March 2020 - Full version (not an update)

    ancestral view

    Hello again. I'm using tng 13.1 on one install and 1311 on another install. this is all on my local home server. this issue does not appear to be happening on the live server. Have I asked this before? If I did I apologize. On the home server installs, when viewing the ancestral view, some of the lines between cells are broken or not there unless i play around with it. Not that it matters that much being on my home server, but I just wanted to know why it's happening. doesn't seem to matter what template i use. like I said, i'm using tng 13.1 and 13.1.1 on a windows 10 machine running wampserver64. I've attached a screenshot for your viewing pleasure.

    SOLVED: Blank screen - help - I give up

    Solved! With a lot of kind help. Thanks again. Hi there I hope somebody can help I have been working with MODs today, a wonderful world, and when I had almost finished, and had installed the last MOD, I realized I only get a blank screen, when I try to go to an individuals "Personal Information". An example is my dad here: https://tng.stegemueller.dk/getperson.php?personID=I630&tree=HBS Before I started working I downloaded all files, so I have a panic-backup. I have tried to upload all these files. This does not help. Next: I have deactivated all Mods and deleted those that could not be deactivated for some reason. After Next: I have tried to get a fresh new version of the files from Darrin's download page and upload getperson.php I have cleared bowser cache. The issue is not depending on the browser. Root path, database and every thing in setting is untouched. My TNG version is 13.1.1. Which simple thing do I miss to do?
  12. I run my TNG instance in English. When I enter Polish alphabet letters ę or Ę, they come up as ? marks after the text is saved. Most other special characters are displayed without issue. Nothing I have tried under the Admin options renders a fix. Help ... Keith

    Your testing environment

    I'm curious to know what some of you use for your tng testing environment. Also do you test for different screen sizes, mobile, etc.? I may be wrong to some of you but I've been only testing on a 24" and a 22" monitor. With these types of monitors these days, it seems to me, whats the point? if the user only has a 17" monitor, they need to upgrade. Your thoughts on this?
  14. As reflected by the attached pictures I have some PHP-detected errors. One is seen w/o login here: https://www.girander.dk/genealogy/browsealbums.php Another here: https://www.girander.dk/genealogy/calendar.php - also shown in the attached snips. I hope the pattern of errors points in a particular direction. Possibly a (some) corrupt php file(s)..
  15. I was quite sure I had it set up like this for several persons before. But apparently this is not the case. So... How do I hide all details (for not logged in guests) of a deceased person, without cheating by leaving the 'Living' checkbox marked? I know there is a 'Private' checkbox, but with that active, the name is still fully visible, only some details seem to be hidden. What am I missing, or do I not understand? It would be cool if there was a 'Hide deceased' option, that would change the name of an individual to 'Deceased', similar to how the 'Living' checkbox changes the name to 'Living'. (Running v.13.1.1) Thanks!
  16. I've been working for like 24 hours now to figure out why the wampapache64 service quit yesterday and will not restart no matter what I do. I need access to phpmyadmin to backup my db's. can't get there from here anymore

    Hey you all. I have my site hosted with Simply Hosting. Where is the php.ini file found?
  18. I have a number of Media entries (headstones) with incorrect links to individuals. Media/ Edit Existing Media/ Headstones..On hitting the red button to delete a link, a window appears asking if you are sure that you want to proceed with the deletion. In that window another question appears asking if you want TNG not to permit deletions with check box next to it. I misread that and checked the box. Now I am unable to make any deletions. I have gone back to my my permissions as administrator and everything seems to be in order. Have yet to find anything in wiki on this particular item. Thanks in advance

    PDF not working

    Not sure if this MOD related. I have installed @ 20 MODs. It's impossible to do a full review of functionality after installing each one so I'm not sure if is a MOD that has caused the issue. When ever I try and generate any PDF file I get the screen below. Has anyone else experienced this type of error?

    Back to the top icon

    Hello, I have just looked at the option to print on the 'getperson.php' page and I notice it has a feature that I haven't seen on other pages but would be a nice option to have, 'the back to the top' icon appear once you scroll down the page. Looking at the source it looks like <div class="scroll-to-top"><a href="#"><img src="img/backtotop.png" alt="" /></a></div> is the code that make this feature work. Is there a reason why this is not available on all pages, I'm using template #12
  21. I have seen a few folks listed on this map of TNG Users by Google.. https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1vWtrcOBfXUWDAoApHcRGAoZznSo&amp;msa=0&amp;ll=-39.012280712386264%2C175.29644032226577&amp;spn=27.424492%2C62.578125&amp;iwloc=lyrftr%3Amsid%3A214515488343126797248.0004da2ba07e970abf091%2C0004eea67ced74d8249d0%2C-34.7550065%2C149.7163781%2C0%2C-3&amp;z=7 I recall reading about it somewhere but don't remember where. Does anyone know how to get onto it or who to contact to do so?? Thanks in advance
  22. I am having issues with both the TNG D/load page and Wiki not loading here.. Is there an issue?? Update: Checking is my site down etc, reveals tng.lythgoes.net is up.. However in all my browsers I cannot reach them, can do on the phone (using mobile data not Wifi) but really slow, so maybe an issue with NZ, or my Internet provider.. Will contact them during business hours.
  23. Has anyone using TNG installed the Cookiebot consent banner and widget for the GDPR and CCPA requirements. The scripts need to be added to the HEAD tag and be the 1st script. No obvious place for it to be added in the admin sections so I am guessing that it would need to be added in the topmenu.php

    Access to multiple tree

    Hi I have created 2 trees on my site and I have also created a 'guest' Account with restricted access to only one of the trees. If I login as this user and click on the 'Advanced' search button, both trees are visible and will return records from the tree not selected in the user setup 'Restrict the above rights to the following:' tree button? Any advice appreciated.
  25. Hi everyone, I just noticed that it's possible to have multiple login with the same user account. I know it might be a little far fetched from happening but could this cause problems when an admin account has multiple login and changes are made.? Could this potentialy corrupt any of the TNG files resulting in a broken intallation? A check to see if a user is already logged on should/could prohibit a second logon by the same account. Rob
