    export/import gedcom issue

    Hello all. Here's my issue. I have to reinstall tng on my localhost after a PC rebuild. I have a gedcom from my live site that I'll use to import to the local site. I have media and Geo data attached to individuals on the live site. What would be the proper way for me to import all this data to the local site without having to manually re-do everything? Gedcom? Database? both? Thanks.
  2. Hi I've ftp'd my images onto my site and put my gedcom file there as well, but the images are not matching the records they refer to. I'm sure it's simple but what am I doing wrong, please? as you can see in the screenshot the images are tantalisingly close to the records I want them to illustrate thanks
  3. Hello, I can view thumbnails, and smallish photos in popup when hovering the thumbnail. But no image is displayed on the photo page. If I go back to php 7.4, images are back where they belong. I tried with several browsers, but with php 8.0.25 or 8.1, I cannot get any image displaying. You may try it here , with any document : https://genealogie.revestou.fr/browsemedia.php?mediatypeID=documents On my private family site, though, running php 8.1, the photos are displayed correctly. The theme is the same. Both site are TNG 13.1.1. Both sites are hosted at Ionos, though not the same contract and server. Should I compare the installed mods in each website ?
  4. Hi all, I'm very new, so my apologies if this is obvious. I've searched here and on the TNG WIKI, but can't seem to find an answer. I'd like to be able to collapse the media on the person page, especially documents. For some people, I have 10-20 documents and the list takes up a great deal of page real estate and pushes the map way down to the bottom. If there's not a way to collapse photos and documents listings, is there perhaps a way to move the event map higher on the page? I'm using the regroup person/profile mod and I"m generally happy with the changes that allows, but I really need to get the documents list compressed. Here is an example of a page with a long document list (guest user login name: guest, password; guest) https://christymckenna.net/getperson.php?personID=I2&tree=McKenna THanks and I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone. --Christy

    photos not showing

    After and update, none of my images are working. The TNG images work, but none of my documents or images show up. They don't appear in the public or admin area. The photos are on the server (confirmed with FTP). I'm assuming this is a pathing issue. I've checked in Setup >> Configuration >> General Settings and the root path is correct. The Photos, Documents, and other folders are all set to the default. How do I get my images back?
  6. I think I screwed up when I imported my GEDCOM a few weeks ago. All media ended up in /photos and none are linked. Is there ANY way to correct this without having to do over 3,000 files one at a time? Signed ... Hopeful Nana
  7. Hi Sorry if I don't do this correctly, but first time using this forum. 🤨 I have a problem with public Access control... In short, it prevents showing the first image, but not the rest of them.. when you are not logged in.. see attached.. This show it: https://www.blumensaadt-ingemand.dk/TNG/getperson.php?personID=I7086&tree=tree1 I have installed the last mod (, although in the cfg file it says which shows all my installed mods.. see attached setup in Publ. access see attached.. I don't know when it happened, since I'm always logged in. Kind regards Soren Ingemand p.s I have contacted Erik Hoppe, but he is not well, and suggested I try here..

    What goes in the documents folder?

    So what content goes in the documents folder?
  9. 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?
  10. ok, I'm working on another project on my localhost. Fresh full install (today) tng v3.1.2 , so it's the latest version of randomphoto.php. This is a stand alone tng install, no wordpress. On my live site is standalone tng v3.1.2 UPGRADE (sometime back in july) and randomphoto works fine there. Using the template manager mod, I created a new template from template21 and naming it template31. Everything on that part of this project works fine. EXCEPT the randomphoto.php code. It doesn't work in t21 or the new t31. I've read all the threads concerning this issue and no help there. Can someone please explain what's going on here? And maybe some suggestions how to get it working. Localhost page source and f12 inspection: <!-- Random Photo Starts Here --> <!-- If you don't want to have a random photo displayed, just remove this section down to 'RANDOM PHOTO CODE ENDS HERE' --> <!-- Random Photo Ends Here --> t21 and t31 index.php: <!-- Random Photo Starts Here --> <!-- If you don't want to have a random photo displayed, just remove this section down to 'RANDOM PHOTO CODE ENDS HERE' --> <?php $rp_maxwidth = "90%"; include("randomphoto.php"); ?> <!-- Random Photo Ends Here -->

    Background Image

    Good morning all. On this other project I'm working on, using template21, I have added a background image to the container that holds the nivo slide show and Welcome Message. However, I would like to have that background image stretch full width, out of the container, just the image mind you. Here's a couple of shots to show you what I mean, as this is on my localhost. I'd like to simulate GWT's template221 > https://genealogywebtemplates.com/tng/demoframes-public.html this the css i have for it right now /* Background image behind slider and Welcome Message */ .bgbox { background-repeat: repeat; background-image: url('../img/lithuania.jpg'); background-size: 100% auto; margin-top: -10px; margin-bottom: 10px; border-bottom: 4px solid #86a7ba; box-shadow: 0 15px 20px -15px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4); } I have this at the end of topmenu.php: <div class="container"> <div class="bgbox"> The div is closed in the right spot (I think) in index.php.

    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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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?

    PLEASE NOTE I AM VERY DUMB WITH THIS Please can anybody assist me with the media, im struggling and cant make out how to add all from gedcom or must i add one by one?
  16. 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
  18. 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.

  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  23. 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.

    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!
