    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
  2. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  10. 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
  11. how many simultaneous users may be logged in, searching and generating charts?
  12. 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
  14. 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
  16. 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?
  17. 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.

    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
  20. 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
  21. 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 ?
  22. 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
  25. 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!
