  1. Now that I have begun to use Open Street Maps, I have noticed that it doesn't like arbitrary (unrecognized) place names that I used to have mapped in TNG using Google Maps. For example, I have "Maple Ridge, New Brunswick, Canada," which works fine in OSM, but it no longer likes "Prob. Maple Ridge, New Brunswick, Canada." In TNG I used to be able to edit these arbitrary places by telling TNG that "Prob. Maple Ridge, New Brunswick, Canada" is "Maple Ridge, New Brunswick, Canada" in the place window on the Edit Existing Place page. I then use the geocode for that real place, and it maps. But now, I cannot use (nor even edit!) the "Prob. Maple Ridge, New Brunswick, Canada" place name and save it as I did before, as TNG just reverts to no lat., long. or place level. The following two screenshots show what is happening. The first is just before I save the edit: The second is what shows in my place list after the save; Is there a solution so that I can have my numerous arbitrary place names mapped in OSM?? TIA. Jim

    Cemetery place link

    I cannot figure out how to programmatically link a record in the tng_cemetery table to a corresponding record in the tng_places table. At least, that is what I think I need to do. I have written a very useful tool for myself and would share with anyone who wanted it once it is perfected. I use rootsmagic 7 to create gedcoms to import my Ancestry data into TNG. One of the great about Rootsmagic is that I don't have to do too much cleanup to the .ged file before I import. Looking at the rootsmagic generated .ged file I noticed that there are _WEBTAGs for all the findagrave entries in the file , however upon import into TNG that information is lost. It was not too difficult to write a small php file that generated a list from that gedfile with the individual's ID and the urls on each line. Then from that info, another php file puts all the findagrave links into TNG as an external link into the individual's page. All done practically instantaneously. However, then I decided to carry it a step further. I would put these links into a person's burial section along with the correct cemetery name. So you'd have the findagrave link there and also if you clicked the little magnifying glass next to the burial place you'd get a map and below it everyone else who was buried there. To do this, I wrote a file which read all the lines in the list I generated of the person's ID, and findagrave link. The program loads the link (findagrave) page, finds the cemetery name and location from the memorial page, then loads the cemetery page and retrieves the gps coordinates from a meta tag on that page and generates a new list with all that info on it. I could get a couple of hundred before their server stops me, times out or something, and then I'd have to do it again with the remaining entries. It took a few minutes and three runs before I got the whole list of 517 burials in 217 cemeteries. Then I created another php file which reads that list and puts all that into the website programmatically and instantly.. The problem is that when you click the magnifying glass next to the burial location it shows the cemetery name and every person buried there, but no map! I solved that on my website by going to admin > cemeteries and going to the edit page of each of the 217 cemeteries and checking the box to 'Copy the geocode information below to this place' and now they all work correctly. Even though they are all now working correctly on my site, having to manually edit each entry kind of takes a little out of the whole idea. I want to do the whole thing without editing anything. Now to be clear, even when this current problem is solved, the program still needs a lot of cleanup. I found a couple of places on findagrave.com where there was a memorial, but no cemetery, which would cause an error in my program. That's what error-handling is for, so I am sure that and a couple of other details can be cleaned up. I am hopeful that someone out there with more knowledge of how tng works, and also more programming expertise will tell how I can do this all without having to manually edit afterwords.

    Report cemeteries

    I want to create a report that shows me all the cemeteries in my database. I entered that here: SQL: SELECT tng_people.living, tng_people.private, lnprefix, prefix, suffix, title, tng_people.branch, birthdate, birthdatetr, altbirthdate, altbirthdatetr, deathdate, deathdatetr, burialdate, burialplace, lastname, firstname, deathpersondate, deathplace, tng_people.ID., Deathplace, tng_people , tng_people.gedcom, nameorder FROM (tng_people) WHERE (burialplace LIKE "% Friedhof%" OR "Memorial" OR "Cemetery") AND tng_people.gedcom = "KLERC" ORDER BY burialplace But only places that contain the word "Friedhof" are shown to me: Cemetries and memorials are not displayed! Where am I making the mistake? Thank you for your help in advance....

    cannot delete a place

    I click on the x box to delete a place, and the red comes and goes, and the place remains. It's odd; this has never happened before. That's the little video clip attached. It's there still if I log out and come back later. When I select or more places and click "delete selected," a new utterly white tab opens but nothing changes. This happens in Safari, Firefox, and Chrome. Has anyone else seen this? Derrick deleteclip.mp4
  5. When I go to places in admin, there is a blank record being displayed. If I delete it and leave places and come back, it reappears. Never had that problem with 12.

    Google Map problem ??

    Not sure what happened but my maps quickly close immediately after they render. I get a message to refer to the Java Script Console. I checked my browser config for activating Java.... it’s turned on and don’t find any other problem. I recently updated to V13 but had the problem for quite some prior to it. I’ve read everything WiKi has and google and I’m puzzled... can anyone help? http://www.byingtonfamily.org ~ jeff
  7. I'm not sure if the category "Installation and Configuration" is the correct address (maybe also developers) There seems to be an unsolved conflict on editing rights for places, notes, sources, etc. if there are editors for different trees. All these editors are allowed to edit places, notes, sources, etc. although they are only editors for their own tree. These seems to be a critical bug. Is there a chance to solve this problem quickly. Or to make a workaround. I'm not familiar with PHP and the Mod scripting. It would be at least adviceable to exclude editing and deletion Regards, Fritz Loseries
