    Show photo's on one row

    Hello everyone, I always save all my documents as a .jpg file so the generating of thumbnails is easy and I always have thumbnail available. If you go to Setup >> Configuration >> General Settings>>Media>> and set “Show photo's on one row” to Yes all photo's on the person page appear on one row. Except for photo's (documents) that are not linked to an event (See picture) With this in mind I asked Darrin of this was intended. Here's what he said. Since I save all my documents as a .jpg file I wanted to see those on one row too. This is for those who save their documents as a .jpg file too. If you want to see the photo's (documents) on one row too (see picture below) do the following: Make sure you make a backup of your personlib.php. Edit your personlib.php file. Find the line (somewhere around 1012) that says : if(count($media) > 1 && ($mediatypeID == "photos" || in_array($mediatypeID, $mediatypes_like['photos']))) { and change it into: if(count($media) > 1) { Make sure to use the closing bracket after the 1 for otherwise it will generate an error 500. (happend to me 😞) If you reload your person page the photo's (documents) that are not linked to an event will appear on one row. Unfortunately I'm not able to write a mod so after an update/upgrade this needs to be reapplied. HTH Rob
  2. Hello all, When creating families there is the possibility to create a family consisting of two people of the same sexe. Unfortunately they're always referred to as father and mother. instead of father/father or mother/mother. Has anyone ever created a mod that mitigates this? I know this can go furher than just the mentioned relationships above but for now it would be a good step in the right direction. Next week I plan to send an email to Darrin too, asking him about his point of view. I will take your comments into considiration too. Kind regards, Rob

    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

    Multiple databases

    Running a Family History Society web site we have installed TNG and loaded a large Gedcom family history donated to the Society. We envisage more donations of this type but need to install them separately, each with its own front/title page. Can we have two installations of TNG on the same web site or is there another way to tackle this opportunity?

    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: (46.229.168.139) 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: (46.229.168.139) and (185.191.171.35) 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?

    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.

    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

    Emailed reports

    I've been fiddling about with creating a method to email a birthday report using the existing codebase. The idea would be to create a cron job that sent out an email with birthdates, death dates, etc., that occurred on the current date. While I could do this using curl or wget and then using sed to change a few bits and pieces of the html that is generated, it would be much more user-friendly is there were a mod to email reports out in the codebase or as a modification. Does anyone else do this kind of thing, and if so, how?
  9. Opening a new Topic about this idea, resuming some advices from TNG users Aug 19, Ron Said : "That would be of interest for sure. Along with open my page, and bookmarks, etc, the site would be tailored to the user. I think today the user isn't comfortable setting or designating the Sosa, particularly each time they log on. Good winter project indeed! " Aug, 20. Katryne said : "Michel : a Sosa to be chosen by each member, something like a cookie attached to his profile ? That would be gerat for the village website. " Answer : Yes Katryne, something like that... May be a little table with user-sosa1-tree server side and a local array... I still have to think about it. Aug 20, Ken said : " You should also consider an option that allows the TNG Administrator to decide whether users can set their own Sosa or not. Possibly use an option that is tied to the user record that contains the user's treeID and personID, assuming they all contain valid data, to anchor the starting Sosa so it could be set by the administrator and not chew up bandwidth and MySQL execution time while the user plays with their starting number. My user records do not all contain the user's treeID and personID because my database was not updated when Darrin added those 2 fields to the user record. Just a thinking out loud here, since i can see Sosa number setting as chewing up MySQL execution time. " Answer : In any case, the option would be offered ONLY for connected members, possibly with pre/post authorization of the administrator.

    Marking questions as Solved

    Hello everyone, Wouldn't it be nice if there were a rule that we should all mark our questions as Solved when a question is actualy solved. This could make searching and finding a good answer easier. We could mark them as *Solved* or [Solved]. Rob

    Open Street Map mod: ideas for features

    Hi Erik, First: I like the way that places involved in the life of one person are represented in OSM. Different colours for different events, all nice and clear. Things change a bit, when the places involved are within one community with a few on 50 - 100 km distance. Look at added file Raineldis. The cluster is in the South, and you can't even count the places there, let allone connect them to addresses, without zooming in. Farm names played an important role when under Napoleon rule people had to adopt a fixed family name. So defined a picture of all farms in my village of birth. It looks like attached file Rekken. A friend pointed me to <https://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/> Maybe this is what you used for the mod, maybe other tools The friend has made a map for a site on the history of Vught, a place in the south of the Netherlands. He generated the map using <https://umap.openstreetmap.fr/nl/map/vughtse-historie_110715#14/51.6686/5.2928> It shows several interesting features! So I made a start for my map of Farms in Rekken, and included it for now on the non-TNG part of my site: <https://www.ltebraake.nl/rekken/boerderijen-in-rekken>. If you take a good look at the two links, you may recognize the following list of Features I would like to see in the TNG OSM mod, in order of priority: Option to show the name of the places on hoovering over the pins, not only by clicking on it. Optionally choose to to cluster pins in an orange circle with the number of pins in it, but display them individually even where crowded Option to choose a slim pin for individual maps, e.g. when they are crowded with pins Option to use layers with each a group/category or manually picked pins, wih a list of layers to switch them on/off individually. Option to browse through the data under the pind (see black bar in layers menu on Vught site) Option to use an icon in the pins For me the first three feel like necessary for TNG, the others like "nice to have". Looking forward to what others think of these suggestions.
  12. I've tried to enhance privacy by adding mods and by (considering) making mods described in your Protecting Access Log wiki article. Neither can be used because the majority of user roles have a limited admin status. I would like close relatives to be able to add and suggest modifications to my data, giving them a "Custom" user role. Their page access (template 12 info drop down menu) includes Admininistration (though as far as I can tell they then have no access to any of the administrator pages) and Access Log (which I would like to keep private and available only for the true Administrator, i.e., me). They also no longer have the convient menu option of "Contact Us". I tried to use a Hide Branches mod but it didn't seem to be working. Roy informed me, and now I see on the user roles in their setup screen that only Guest and Submitter roles "have no access to Admin area", so in my case, I cannot use the mod. Alternatively, I suppose, mod writers could be encouraged to include an option to true Administrators only, though I don't know how difficult or feasible this would be. (If the latter is the preferred solution, it would be helpful if wiki articles like Protecting Access Log would include code to execute for true Administrators, also.) I'd rather that users (other than me, the Administrator) not be able see other users' search history. So as not to seem unappreciative: TNG is a solution I've been looking for for years, being a longtime Rootsweb WorldConnect user, but not happy with the alternatives offered today. But needing to get my tree/database back online to help me share and collaborate with other genealogy researchers. The installation assistance through the readme file, and the support you make available through direct e-mail, readme, wiki, and forums is really impressive, and the display of information is very nice.

    Signature Display Mod

    Was wanting help with maybe writing a report or creating a menu item that will show all persons with a signature file (treeID.personID.sig.jpg) present in the /photos/sigs folder. It's a great Mod, I want to be able to highlight on my site that this is a new feature. ** as of now, this record is on my local server only, not the live site. **

    Identify Mods affecting pages

    Recently there have been some forum posts regarding conflicts on some sites, mainly due to Mod changes. It is not always easy to identify which Mods affect which pages. I would like to highlight Show Mod Names by Robin Richmond as a working solution. Show Mod Names lists mods (utilising the Mod) that affect the files used by the running program. While it does not identify errors, it can save some time, as it is not as necessary to uninstal all the Mods when finding the error Mod. It is only needed to uninstall those Mods affecting the page the error occurs on. If Mod developers would look into incorporating this into their Mods, it could benefit TNG admin users in identifying or reporting error detail. An example on the getperson.php is shown. No details print and the view is only available to logged in Admins.

    Census Plus

    Hi, I am considering using Census Plus to transcribe my census. I have a couple of questions Currently I transcribe the Census into a word Document and then create a event of Census and paste the transcription into the event for example for you. This is what I transcribed SIX CENSUS OF CANADA,1921,District 51 Antigounish,EN Sub Dist,46,Larry's River polling Division,Pg5 Line1 Dwelling,28,Family,29,AVERY,Patrick R,Abode,Larrys River,Municiaplity,Guyborough,Own,8 Rooms,Wood,[HEAD},M,,Married,Age,47,Navitiy,Nova Scotia,Father,Nova Scotia,Mother Nova Scotia,Orgin,Candian,Tribe,French,Can speak English,can Speakl French,religon RCathloc,Can Read and Write,Fisherman,AVERY,Mary,Larrys River,Guysborough,[WIFE},Female,Married,40,NS,NS,NS,Nationality Canadian,Orgin French,Cannot Sp[eak french can speak english,RCathloic,AVERY,Larrys River,Larrys River,Guysborough,[SON],Male,Single,19,NS,NS,Nationality Canada,,RCathloic,Orgin French,Can speak French Can English,Cannot Read or Write,Laborer,Income,200,AVERY,Stephen,Larrys River,Larrys River,Guysborough,NS,NS,NS[SON],Male,17,Canada,French,Can speak French and English,Rcathloic,Can read and Write,Labourer,900,AVERY,Ida,Larrys River,Larrys River,Daughter,8,NS,NS,Canada,French,can speak French can speak english,RCathloic The forms that you Census Plus don't ask many questions It just require the basics. I like to add a bit more detail, I have attached a document that contains the l 35 questions they asked Is it possible to create your own template that you can add additional questions. Currently the generic sheet does not look like the 1921 Census It has the basics It would be cool if you could tweak it like the Census. Also The Library of Canada National Archives also have all their Census online it. I look up the matching Census and get the URL so they can click on the link and view it on line Here is the Link http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/1921/Pages/item.aspx?itemid=5459991 Any thought's Suggestions,Comments Thank You for your Help Jim 1921-questions.txt
  17. Hi, I would like to have something that makes Source fields ACTUALTEXT and COMMENT somehow different in person view. For example the comment might be italic, or there may be a line between. Currently there is no difference on HTML level, else I would have wrote CSS. There is not even a real separator. There is only a <br>-Tag. Thanks.
  18. I'd like to search places by assigned place level. I'm working to including one of the more place level mods, and to do this I'm trying to figure out how many places I've assigned to a current place level (almost 3,000 places), and which places I've assigned to which place level, so that I can see what to change. A "find-and-replace" for place level would be even more of a help. An easy way might be to click on the column header to choose to sort by that column. I manipulate all of my places off line in Reunion, whose find-and-replace works fine for the locations themselves, but this is a TNG-specific identification system. Now, I see that I can export my places table as .csv, open it in Numbers, sort it by place level. I can make changes here. If I save this as a .csv file, can I import this back into the table with all changes changed?

    Gedcom Export - Scobey

    What does this mean and how to fix in gedcom export. Cannot open file /data/25/2/92/116/2581931/user/2830996/htdocs/genealo/gedcom/tree1.ged thanks

    Gedcom Export

    While the Gedcom export works well, it has little flexibility when exporting data. The ability to exclude select pieces of information would be very useful, especially for 'Notes.' Custom event types contain an option to exclude events during a Gedcom import and providing a link to the event types/custom event types so that selected items can be excluded during export would prove useful. I realize that I can privatize 'Notes' and then exclude them during an export. Currently, I use a Klutzy work around using desktop genealogy software and while I can remove some information however, I cannot remove as much as I would like before posting to the various Genealogy Websites.
  21. If this has been addressed I can't find it and I apologize in advance. I have tried to determine if "media upload" would work but I'm not sure it will do what I am hoping. Maybe there is a built-in function already or perhaps a MOD of some sort but again, can't find - I want to add an link to my drop down lists (available only to registered users) that would allow them to upload ANY file (except the obvious extensions like .js, .exe, .htm, etc) and have that file land inside a "secure" folder on my server so that only I may retrieve it either on line or via my ftp client. I'm not looking for an interface to TNG, rather I want to allow someone who has a password (that I've already approved) to "click to upload" a file such as a photo, or a scan from a birth or death certificate, or even a small gedcom. I'd like to limit the size of the potential upload as well to maybe 15Mb or more if necessary. And it would even be nice to have a short form they could fill out telling me what it is they are uploading. I could make the form but don't want to reinvent the wheel if it's already been done by someone before me. It would be nice to have a success alert telling them their files have been successfully transferred as well. Anybody with any ideas? I'll take them I know there are third-party offerings such as Dropbox but I really don't want to use that unless I have to. Thanks Larry
  22. I make heavy use of the "Copy Last" button when adding source-citations. For example, if I am entering data from a published genealogy book, every Event will have the same citation detail. For each citation, I must do the following: Click the citation icon > "Copy Last" > "Save" > "Finish" If I have entered 20 Events, for example, it requires 80 clicks of the mouse to add identical citations to each of them. Would anyone be able to advise if I may be able to modify "admin_editperson.php" to include, beside the citation icon, a new "Copy Last citation" icon which has the effect of the above four steps in one go? The appearance of the usual green dot on the source-citation icon might signify that the "Copy Last citation" command has been successful. I wonder if anyone else would find such a modification useful. I do not have any knowledge of how to create Mods.

    Layout of media change

    I have several people with Yearbook Entries I link the Jpegs of each page to a "Education" Event. When the persons page displays these Jpegs are in rows. is it possible to have these items display as columns in a single row or a table of 1 x 4 or 2 x 2? Or even better a MOD that allows several Items to be linked in a table format and that table be linked to the event. P.S. Is there anyway to have them display in order A-Z versus order of entry?
  24. A TNG user recently posted an idea for a new mod on the TNG users list. He requested APA formatted citations for the pages generated from getperson.php. I responded that Citation Master could produce that pretty easily and generated a couple of Citation Master v8 release candidates that incorporate the feature. As currently coded, the feature produces an additional section just above the citations that looks like (APA format): Reference: Herndon, William Robert. (2018, March 4). Donald Crain Herndon. TNG 11.0.1 Website. Retrieved from http://localhost:3030/getperson.php?personID=I2092&tree=tngtest The IEEE format looks like this: Reference: Herndon, William Robert. "Donald Crain Herndon," TNG 11.0.1 Website, March 4, 2018. [Online]. Available: http://localhost:3030/getperson.php?personID=I2092&tree=tngtest The idea being that your site's users could copy this reference from your site to theirs or for incorporation as a source in their own genealogy database. Here's the issue: At least one interested TNG user (and perhaps others) would like this feature without the bulk of Citation Master's other features, but I need Citation Master's internal formatting engine to make this work. The easiest way to make that happen would be to split Citation Master into two mods: One for the features, one for the formatting engine. I'd then create a new 'Page Reference' mod that would also depend on the formatting engine. So...the question for Citation Master's users: Would you still use the Citation Master if it were split in two, so that you'd have to install both the feature mod and the formatting engine mod? Let me make clear that I think this is a cool feature, but my existing users come first. So I'll figure out an alternative if splitting Citation Master isn't the preferred way to go. Thanks for your input and suggestions. Bill Herndon Lindell-Herndon Genealogy
