    Video guide in Danish - relevant here?

    I've made a video guide that in 28 minutes explains the purpose of TNG and explains readme.html (that I've also translated fra A - Z) for people who have absolutely never tried to establish a website before. I.e. they are wondering how to get data from their local machine to the internet, don't know what FileZilla is, don't know what a host is and so on. But they a great genealogists, without a chance to distribute and share their results achieved for maybe 30 years. I want them to see how easy it actually is to get TNG up running - and save a lot of money every year to some companies. Everything is down to earth and explained slowly, so that everybody can follow it. The introductory text in my Danish FAQ is: "If you follow this link, you will get to a video guide where I explain the purpose of TNG and the whole basic installation. You'll discover how easy it is to get started. The guide is intended for users who have never worked with websites before. If you follow the guide, you'll end up with a website." I've sent a link to Darrin so he can see whether he finds it precise enough for him to distribute the link to his (new) customers. He is busy these days but will have a look as soon as possible. Would a link to the guide be relevant somewhere in this community? Are there programs that can translate the video so you enthusiasts can maybe understand it a tell me what you think about it? I have spent really much time recording it (it is my first video tutorial), so now I know how difficult it is.

    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
  4. I have collected numerous GEDCOM files (50-60) from various family members and others. I'm now retired and now want to merge/extract these files into one entity. There are obviously duplicates, some with more information than others. I am trying to decide what methods to use. I've thought of trying a GEDCOM to SQL parser but defining the schema and all of the tables and dependencies seems overwhelming. I've also tried using manual duplicate/view/edit functions in some of the available genealogy apps, but that seems tedious and non-productive. Has anyone faced this same situation? Can TNG do this somehow? If I import all 50-60 files into TNG will I end up with a mess? And how did you go about solving it?
  5. Hi all, over the past few days I’ve taken advantage of MyHeritage.com offering free access to their photo tools to either repair, enhance or colourise images. Many of the results have been…a little bit odd, to say the least… but in some cases the enhancement of the image has been very good indeed. I’m still not that comfortable with displaying a colorised version of a black and white photo, but in some cases, the enhanced image or “restored colour” image has been quite impressive. The images download with a watermark in the bottom right, which I don’t have an issue with…and I’m still mulling over whether I’m actually going to include these computer enhanced images in my Reunion genealogy database. Personally I’d never just display the enhanced version…I’d always include the original and indicate (somehow) the difference. I’m trying to figure out how I could label the image as “Enhanced” in Reunion, and then when I import via GEDOM into TNG, have them displayed as such? As all my works is done in Reunion and then imported into TNG. But… it made me wonder if some clever person might be able to create a mod that allows you to associate a value with an image, to indicate that it is computer enhanced…AND…when the image is displayed in TNG, it clearly indicates that somehow? Personally I’m not wanting a watermark added to the image…I’m thinking something that just highlights on the page displaying the media that it is enhanced. But to be honest, I’m just thinking out loud, because I’m not exactly sure what the best approach would be and what is achievable? All comments welcome. In case anyone is interested…I also have Adobe Photoshop that can do colorisation…but My Heritage was just so fast and easy to use, I took up their free offer (while it lasted) instead. It’s not something I will continue to do…I’m just trying to figure out the most effective way to use a few of the images that I am quite pleased with.

    The new look of TNG

    In todays market, TNG would need to lift it's game, if it wanted to stay competitive, in the future Family Tree market. The terms Male and Female, now no longer apply, so additions would need to be added to appeal to the L,G,B,T,Q,I mob and the other H,D,O,Z,W,X brigade. Either an updated drop down menu in the get-person creation, or a space to add your own identity, or identity of. Then of course, you have those that don't identify as either Male or Female, they simply acknowledge themselves as being "Non-Binary". They would much rather be identified as a Toaster or a Breville Snack Maker. I'm not sure if @Darren has thought of it, or about it, but first horse out of the gate, normally wins the race. Would certainly put TNG out in front.
  7. I can not code MODs (or anything else), but I'm a perfectionist in Danish language, so I have this offer to the many MOD developers: If you ever need/want something in a MOD or maybe in a template translated into Danish please tell me. I'll be happy to assist and give back a bit to this wonderful community.
  8. It would be nice to be able to display a tree of certain individuals based on say a hidden custom event on their record. i.e. you want a subset of the database displayed as a tree. Obviously you can create a report to extract the individuals but it would be nice to see how they related in a tree view.
  9. I was thing about this when I downloaded v.125b. If someone who has the time and the knowledge to code php, they could resurrect it since it's no longer supported and maintained. Just a suggestion. Think about it....

    Thumbnails in reports?

    Hello, everyone I would like to include a thumbnail of the person in my reports. But how do I do that? Is that even possible? I can't do that with the "direct SQL SELECT statement". Who can help me? Thanks in advance.
  11. Hi there Not sure this is the right 'Forum' to add this, Sysops / Moderators please move appropriately, but PLEASE let me know it has been moved. There are two Mods relating (pun not really intended but it works 😀) which work well and each has their strong points. I'm happy to use either one. AND They work on TNG v13.1 .. Not sure they have been sorted for PHP v8 errors though 😁 The Mods are Relationship to Site Owner v12.0.0.6 Dev is Roger Moffat What appeals to me with this Mod is when the 'Relationship text' is clicked you are taken to the relationship Tab 'module' and a graphical display it shown. Relationship Display Mod v10.0.0.1 Devs are Jeff Robison & Gerald Leehan What appeals to me with this Mod is the ability to specify a 'Default Person' on the fly. I am wondering IF it would be possible to have the relationship shown on each of the 'Linked' pages Ancestors / Descendents & Timeline?
  12. It's been 2 1/2 years since the last release of Simple SEO, and it seems like I should get to work on a new version. I've already checked the code for PHP-8 compatibility, and there are a few things to be fixed there. I also plan to try and solve some mod-dependency issues that have cropped up over the years. But setting those changes aside...are there any suggestions the TNG Community have for V7? New features? Changes to existing features? Kudos? Complaints? In case you're not aware of what Simple SEO is used for, take a look at the Wiki page. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Bill Herndon Lindell-Herndon Genealogy

    Mod to hide exact birth places

    Hi everyone I´m new to TNG and my genealogy site is still under construction. Can anyone help me in this topic: My ancestors are nearly born in the same town and I know the adresses of the birth places. So the birth places are specified like Brienner Straße 6, Munich, Bavaria, Germany. Advantage is you can see the exact birth place of each ancestor in TNG on Google Maps. But I don´t want that guest users are able to see the full address, only town and country. Is there a mod out to fix that? How are you dealing with exact birth places in TNG? Thanks for reply :) Mona
  14. Legacy Family has a real neat feature that one can click on a subject's name and it will search Find-A-Grave if any known records. I am building my own link on www.houseofproctor.org and I want to incorporate that link to the appropriate event or what ever seems to be the best location. I was interested to find out if anyone has considered a mod for TNG that might be useful, and not against any code violations to provide our members. I would gladly help and test where I can, JoeP

    Really nice to have is a small list, guess you could call favorites too. Many times when working on something being able to call up an individual with one click would really be nice. Thanks.
  16. Hello everybody, I find the page "most wanted" graphically not very successful! On the left side everything is listed one below the other. Elusive People and Mystery Photos. On the left everything is empty (here is an excerpt) Is it possible to configure the page like in this example? Personally, I find it more appealing! Thank you for your help and sorry for my bad english.....
  17. It would be useful if there were a couple of un displayed blank fields on the individual. These could be populated by admins only and used to create a query in the reports page.

    Why Wordpress?

    I am in the process of developing my core software that will run my site. This may be something I share with the broader community at some point in time. I would like to understand what the core drive is to a TNG/Wordpress integration? Is it the blogging aspect of Wordpress? Modern Templates? Ease of Use? If you are not comfortable posting in the forums, please send me a personal message.
  19. On my website https://xuri.dk/Genealogy/index.php I have in the top menu added a very useful function - a Find Person ID button that reuses TNG code to have the button "Find Person ID" on all TNG pages where the first press gives access to search for a person and the second press jumps to the found person. That it is performed in 2 steps is because I have not found in Javascript a solution that waits to perform step 2 until step 1 is finished. Is there a known solution so that only 1 press is needed?
  20. Hi, this is my first post to this community. In these Corona times, it's good to have a winter project to work on, so I just want to share my planned project about missing Relationship Rute Calculation for non-blod rutes, that also can be used in Labelling Branches. The task: My genealogy database consists of well over 26000 people and I have a rule that all people must be able to connect to me and they must be arranged in 5 branches labelled according to connecting to me by passing through one of grandparents or my wife (FF, FM, MF, MM, WF). My branches can be seen on my website: https://xuri.dk/Genealogy/index.php Solution idea / method: When Google Maps has shortests route calculation that can quickly give the shortest route between 2 places, then it is the same solution I will focus on to check if each one in the genealogy database can be connected to me to comply with my rule of no islands, as well as by finding which shortest route that arrives to me, which of my 4 grandparents or wife was passed decides the branch group the person belongs to. Solution recipe: Build a network model where Google Map's cities are replaced by my 26000 people and connecting paths (roads) between cities are replaced by each person's family relationships. My original genealogy database, where all updates take place is offline on PC in the program Legacy 9 which has a build-in function to determine if a connection can be created between 2 random people and which people are part of the connection (not only directly related - I miss this in TNG's relationships solution). By the help of DBeaver application I have found out to take a snapshot of Legacy's MSAccess database and place it in MariaDB (works like MySQL) which is my TNG database, so I can make a (graph) table on MariaDB to build the network model. In order not to start from Adam and Eve every time, I have searched the internet to find PHP code that performs the shortest route calculations on the network model - a well and extensively described solution I have found here: https://www.sitepoint.com/data-structures-4/ Here is how TNG Relationship Calculation could become in the future: https://news.legacyfamilytree.com/legacy_news/2018/05/tuesdays-tip-the-relationship-calculator-beginner.html So what do you think of the ideas ? / Jan
  21. Hi, I'm starting to get spam through TNG suggest form, which means such mails bypass my spam detection. I've tried to set the "nosuggest" flag, but the contact page is still shown and active. What is "nosuggest" flag meant for if not for this? Idea: add two alternatives to the contact form: Change it to a simple "mailto" link. Show a contact page with instructions on how to contact, preferably with the mail-address rendered on an image (not in clear text). ~Per
  22. Is it possible to write a single-screen data update screen? Here is the scenario: A parent or grandparent who rarely uses TNG wants to report the marriage of their child and record birth of grandchildren. Today, I got such a request, and it took a while to do it. For someone unfamiliar, the data entry screens are not easy to use or intuitive. Someone completely unfamiliar would try and quit. What is needed is: ADD A MARRIAGE: Go to my individual file Select my child who just got married and 'x" [quick entry] that brings up a one-stop entry screen Allow me to first update any details on my child that are missing, especially adding photos as a one-stop process with [Add photos - x if default] On the same screen, allow me to "Add new spouse" [Fill in name, date and place of birth, photograph and other common data] - automatically generate a new ID number "Married Date [_________] Location [___________] Type and other common data Also display any previous marriages and allow to enter divorce date, location and other common data that is missing because this is when need for corrections will be noticed Then on same screen, allow me to "ADD CHILDREN" - automatically generate a new ID number [Name] [Date of Birth] [Location] [Type] {upload Photo - x if default} and other common data Press + to add more children Press [Save] to save

    Place level

    Is there a way to set place level at 'Event' rather than the place as places are recorded for many types of events.

    Default Photo

    Hello everyone, In order to quickly see which photo is set as the default photo one has to go to Admin --> People. It would be nice if there was a the possibility to easily remove the default photo for multiple selected individuals. Especially if someone by "accident" assigns the first photo as default photo for an individual via the Admin --> Media --> Thumbnails. But of course for any other reason one might want to remove multiple default photo's. This prevents the opening of each individual media file and unchecking the default photo checkbox which is time consuming and requires a lot of mouseclicks. An extra icon in the Action Collumn or a checkbox right of the thumb could be an option. Has anyone ever missed this feature before or is there a mod that accomplishes this? Kind regards, Rob
