    Randomphoto question(s)

    Good Morning all. On my localhost testing site, I'm using wp-tng Kloosterman setup, wp v6.02, astra pro as my theme and elementor pro as my page editor. Does anyone use the tng randomphoto.php on their homepage? I was looking in the WordPress forum here and only saw 2 posts about it, but those were from 2014 and really didn't help much. I know there are a bunch of wordpress plugins for random images, but I would like to know how to use tng's randomphoto.php. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated I'm in the process of setting up a sub domain to setup what I have on my test site and will post the site here when I think it's ready for folks to have a look.
  2. Hello again, as i said in my last post i'm Mine and just joined the TNG13 users (https://stories-through-time.de/) Up till now i used Heredis 2021 as the software for my genealogy. There i set the people, sources and media as private that should be private. When i import the gedcom into tng this "private" flag is imported as a custom event with the value "privacy" and the person/media/source is not set as private. It actually creates 2 identical custom events, one linked to people and one linked to sources, but none for media. So i've been wondering what to do... As i understood it, if the media is linked to a living person and the user is not permitted to watch living people the media won't be shown. Did i understand that correctely? But then does this work with the private flag as well? I thought about using a SQL command to set everything with that custom event as private but i'm a bit scared to smash the db with the wrong command since i don't have a clue about SQL... And since there are quite a few jpegs which are private but the source its linked to is not (because i dont have publishing rights or don't want the scans to be shown, stuff like that) i still have the problem with the media. Still it would be better to set all the media as private and correct the ones which are not private manually, than to do it the other way.... Can anyone help me with this? Thanks! Mine P.S. Happy Easter!
  3. So I'll be playing clean-up from the install for a long time. All my media didn't get transferred though the GEDCOM, of course. So I am going back and editing the media. I upload the correct image. Sometimes it works. I look at the individual's data and the image is there and everything in hunky-dory. But some I load, doing everything the same, media in the same format and comparable size, but it doesn't show up or I get an error. And another will only show up if I click on it. I've logged out and refreshed. Haven't tried it from another browser yet but still. Is it just glitchy? Does it take time?

  5. Hello! I just noticed a "small" problem on my site. I don't know if it's recent or not since I didn't pay attention to it before today. The problem is that I can't display the full size media. I am able to see the small formats but not the large ones. This always gives me the message "loading" (in French). https://francoissoucy.com/tng/showmedia.php?mediaID=2231&medialinkID=8690 USER: visiteur PASS: visiteur Thank for help!

    2 Trees Questions

    Hi - I've been using TNG for a bit now, but only for 1 tree, "My Genealogy", fed by my Ancestry tree via FamilyTreeMaker via Gedcom to TNG. (https://kldewitt.com/genealogy) As a favor to a person I met online recently, I've been building a 2nd tree ("LeDuc/LaDuke") within my site for her family while we try to figure out where we might intersect. However, I'm having a few issues when juggling 2 GEDcoms: 1) All the photos and thumbnails go to just 1 bucket, which can cause an issue if Ancestry's tagged 2 photos/censuses,etc with the same name, reference, one from each GEDcom. I've ended up with a couple media items from my people on her people or vice-versa. It would sure be nice if there was a way to have separate folders for each trees pics/references, etc. Am I missing a step/feature? 2) Speaking of photos/thumbnails, is there way to keep them in separate folders? I have over 15,000 "photos" at this point and growing which means the folder has over 30K items when thumbnails are added in, which makes it hard to look through and also slows the whole thing down. Ideas? Thanks for any help I can get. :) Kelly
  7. I recently upgraded to TNG 13.1.2, and I'd like to use template 21. On the right side of the home/index page, under "Meet Our Family," there is supposed to be a random photo displayed. However, on my page, nothing displays. This is the code that is included in template 21's index.php file: <?php $rp_maxwidth = "90%"; include("randomphoto.php"); ?> Am I supposed to edit or add something?
  8. Hello, I'm Mine and just joined the TNG13 users. (https://stories-through-time.de/) After some starting issues i somehow managed to get TNG running. BUt now i can't links people to my media. The Media i added with my gedcom file is linkes correct an works just fine, but when i try to link the media manually it's not working. I tried it both with the already added media and newly added ones. Ich can search and select for the person in the tree but instead of the persons name the list only shows "undefined" and the person is not linked. Does anyone have an idea where the problem comes from and how to solve it? Could the problem be one of the mods i installed? Thanks in advance! Mine 1.

  9. I've added a lot of media files. Images, documents, etc. Suddenly i've noticed that the media just has a loading icon and never loads. I've tested in multiple browsers, cleared the caches, reset the browsers. I've been using Template 19 since i put my site up. The URL of the latest is https://harrisancestry.com/showmedia.php?mediaID=1559&amp;medialinkID=3604 Even in Incognito mode, it does the same thing. As far as the admin portion goes, i optimize the database every few months after adding or removing a lot of data. It's been backed up a few times. I've attached 2 captures. One shows the dev tools in chrome with some errors. I am using Simply Hosting with cloud flair set up. Seems this issue recently started a few months ago but has gotten worse. Any way to determine why the images won't load? There's been a few times you can hit Slide Show, then you can see the images and get them to load. EDIT: I just went to the Media directory from the site. You can see all of the thumbnails. But when clicking the thumbmails, none of the images will load. Doesn't matter if it's a photo, document, headstone image, etc.
  10. I maintain my genealogy information with a separate desktop application and regularly update my TMG site by importing a gedcom file. In this gedom I include also any media links and I make sure to upload the jpg to the appropiate folders. Media to the standard collections are importing correctly and added to the right collection. The problem is with custom collections like the collection 'building' I created. Although I think I configurered everything properly, when importing building they end up in the photo collection and not in the buildings collection. Consequently media cannot be found in TNG as it's looking in the wrong folder. I can munally correct this but everytime I do an import with buildings the wrongs one are created again. What are the steps I'm doing: - The building collection has the following parameters: export as: BUILDING Foldername: gebouwen local path: c:\haza_export\media\gebouwen\ Same setup as: photos - gecom extract: 0 @I1@ INDI 1 NAME Alexander Carel /Appelius van Hoboken/ 1 OBJE 2 FORM jpg 2 FILE c:\haza_export\media\gebouwen\Appelius van Hoboken\Boezemsingel 23 (2003).jpg 2 TITL Boezemsingel 23 2 _TYPE BUILDING 2 NOTE <B> Woonhuis Alex en Inge van Hoboken (2003-) Thanks for any help/advice Alex

    Solved: Documents have to be added manually

    Solved: Legacy was handled the wrong way. Hi there experts I am (still) helping @Steen Riis Thomsen with bist.dk. He needs to upload documents, where I have no experience myself. I/we do this: Control in "Setup >> Configuration >> General Settings" that the name for the Document Folder has the default name "documents" Control in the GEDCOM file that there is a link to a document (specifically a .pdf but also tried with Word docs) on the correct individual Control that this .pdf (or Word doc) document is sent with FileZilla to /public_html/documents/ Import the GEDCOM with check mark in Import media links. The problem is: documents are not automatically linked to the individual. But exactly the same procedure automatically links images to the individual. He has to link documents to the individual manually. TNG version is 13.1.1. Browser cache is cleared. Am I missing something?

    Okay. I am fed up.

    What Desktop Genealogy Software do I need to buy? I need TNG to import a GEDCOM file that will link to the images that I have uploaded to the server, and not just the file name of the images! I will use the newly purchased desktop software, as an intermediary step, in order to import my FTM Gedcom and create a new Gedcom that was processed through this new software so that I am able to have a working TNG website.
  13. 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.

    Is it possible to change the order of images on an Individuals page?

    finding duplicates easily

    I've been searching the forums and came close a few times, but no go. Maybe I've missed something...maybe this has been solved in other threads and I'm just not seeing it.... in any case, is there an easy way to find duplicates of people and families? instead of going through one record at a time? is there like a mod that will run a report or something like that? I just need to check and fix/merge before I start migrating to the live site. Thanks a mil everyone!
  16. Hello everyone. Hope this finds you all doing well. ok, I do all my data entry in TNG on my local wampserver. This past week I've been changing names and optimizing for the web, documents, headstones and photos. Now I'm tasked to doing all the data entry for all those files, ie, description, link to person, etc. once I have that part of the project done locally, I'll export a gedcom file (create a backup first...) then import it into the live site. on the live site i already have populated the documents, headstones and photos folders and generated thumbnails. I should be ok with this method? if not,which approach should i take? Thanks everyone.

    uploading photos

    good morning everyone. I've uploaded a bunch of photos to the photos folder, imported them, etc. when you're at browsemedia.php?mediatypeID=photos, when you hover the mouse over the thumbnail, the popup will not generate, it sits there loading, but never does anything. any ideas or thoughts on this? thanks. edit:
  18. When I uploaded new photos and go to browsemedia, there are people who are linked to the wrong photo. not all of them, just a few. I can't seem to find the way to remove to people from linking to the wrong photo...if you know what i mean. EDIT: belay that last post. I found out where to fix this issue. Sorry about that.
  19. Hi Brent, Or anyone else of course. Any idea what's causing this and how to solve it? Uninstalled all mods and cleared cache before the update. Just to be sure I replaced all the pdfjs viewer files but without effect. Could it have something to do with three new .js files that came with TNG 13.1.1 ? Thx in advance, Rob
  20. I wonder if it's possible to change the order in which media types are displayed on the getperson.php page? I'd like to be able to display the "Documents" section BEFORE the "Photos" section. If it's possible to do so, how to do it?

    Can not use one media fil on more IDs

    Hi there - and merry, merry Christmas! I suddenly have a new issue with media files: I can only add them to one person/ID. I.e. I have many gravestones as they are a wonderful source to death dates, and often there are more names on the stones, so I can use them for more individuals (i.e. both husband and wife). Just to illustrate: This image should be used by both individuals: https://tng.stegemueller.dk/showmedia.php?mediaID=736&amp;medialinkID=517 When I try to link the image to person number two, I get the message, that the image is already in use by another person, and therefore it can not be linked again. This is a new issue as I have tons of family images with several persons on them. You might need this extra information: Everything is updated: TNG v. 13.1 and template is 209 from Marsha Bryant. I add data from GEDCOM created by Legacy. I do not enter data directly in TNG except for geo codes. Kindest regards, Hanne
  22. I haven't updated my TNG site in several months and have forgotten how to do things (I wasn't very tech savvy before but since COVID it is worse). Is there a manual that tells how to do things on TNG? I cannot figure out why my picture from "photos" is not showing up when I change a pictureinfo on Template 15 homepage. I find it in "Photos" and change the template to the same name but it doesn't come up on the homepage. Also, since updated to 13.0.3, I have many duplicate pictures in my "Photos". One has jpg on the end and the other doesn't. Thank you. Also, two "Index" photos show up on my photos, is that normal?

    Duplicate media files

    Hi there, i have a problem with my media files. They are all duplicated. When importing Gedcom on November 30th, 2021 there was apparently a conflict. Is there a possibility to delete the links in the database? Or is there another way to get my database clean again. I am grateful for any help.
  24. Hi Everyone! I hope some might have an idea about how to approach things before I make a mess. It has been Awhile since I reloaded a new GEDCOM. I forgot and many of my media were way above 1 MB. So I resized the ones needed and created "thumb" prefixes to match TNG in the same photos folder for all the photos. The problem is I have listed in TNG 9300 media files for photos, where I in reality on my photos on the host is 5200 photos. I was using the regenerate thumbnails and import function several times to where I have doubles I assume. Before I upload all the correct sizes, cant I fix the tables or something to prepare correctly for the import of the correct photo sizes and thumbs??? Thanks greatly for any help! Jeff

    Where does collection info get stored? I just added a collection in my media and I cannot find where the info is stored. I need to know in which file it get stored Thanks
