  1. One request that I have made to Darrin a couple times over the years, which has not materialized, is the ability to link two different places to each other, much like the ability we currently have to link a cemetery that you build in TNG to the Cemetery Place in TNG so that when you look that the Cemetery Place, you can see a link to the built cemetery as in the attached image showing the Acton Cemetery. While I use the actual name and place of a Cemetery as it is today for where people are laid to rest, I try to record birth, death, and all other events as what the place was when the event occurred, so I have many places in the tree like in the attached New Mexico Place List image where I have Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, New Mexico and Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, New Mexico Territory which are actually the same place, just at different times. I also have many towns that were in one county when an event occurred but due to state and county formations down the line, the town is now in another place, and so I would like to be able to link the two places so that I am reminded of the other place. I know I can use html in the notes of places to link them but I prefer to use the notes for short paragraphs of historical information or to record the dates of county formation and what not. Ideally, I would like the linked place to show up as Places, under the map, much like the Acton Cemetery on the attached image shows up under Cemeteries. You would actually link or connect the two places via Admin/Places where an option to link to a place would show say between Cemeteries: and Notes:. That said, I thought I would throw up a query and see if any one has created a mod or a way for linking two places in a TNG tree as described above.
  2. At the time of release of version 1.0.3, there waqs release MYSQL 5.7. In it's strict mode, it prevented saving 0 as date. This meant new registrations did not created SQL errors. it was only tested on TNG versions 9 and 10.1.3 asI had not upgraded to V12 it's operation in WP-TNg integration (by Mark Barnes) was a bit flacky. I have bumped up new release to version 2.0.1 because I have now upgraded to TNG version 12.1 and this version and this now TNG-Worpress login works with most TNG versions. What does Version 2.0.1 do? Adds a Registration Form which may replace the Wordpress registration form by deselecting 'Membership>Anyone can register' in Wordpress Dashboard>Settings. Adds a User Profile page which saves the changes in Wordpress and TNG database Adds an enhanced Password-Reset module which checks for the presence of email of registered user. Almost all the text used in pages and emails is customisable by the administrator. User may login using either registered user Name or email. On successful login, if User Name exists in TNG database, the user is also logged in to TNG. GDPR Privacy policy is implemented Compatibility Tested on TNG versions, 9, 10.1.3 and 12.1 Not tested on TNG V11 but database changes are incorporated (Thank you @Darrin for providing me the details of the changes) Tested on PHP version 5.4 - 7.3.1 Tested, successfully, with Kloosterman and Mark Barnes methods of Integration Detects TNG versions in use to allow for database changes Customisable privacy settings track TNG 12 cookie and consent flags set consent flag for TNG V9-11 saves consent flag in Wprdpress database set to ask returning user for consent Outstanding Issue If using Mark Barnes plugin, Login within TNG is not functional. User can only login / logout using the Widget. Cause of this is buried deep inside the tne plugin and I have not been able to resolve this. I have the widget working on my live site using Kloosterman method and on my Test site using Mark Barnes plugin. Sadly, both sites are still using TNG V10.13. I have not got round to upgrading the two sites. 🙁 If you are using Mark Barnes Plugin, remember to 'uncheck Integrate TNG/Wordpress logins: ' in the plugin setup You may download V2.01 form here If appropriate please message me if you intend to test/use this plugin.
  3. I am cleaning up loose files and unused folders [in CPanel] and would like to maintain a more compact file structure for Histories and the images used within PHP files filed there. I can create a PHP story which is filed under Histories. I can also store images for that story in a sub-folder under Histories and code correctly within the php file to connect the images to the story. What I can't seem to do is create a 'story folder' that contains both the php file AND the images for that file. It seems the PHP file must be rooted to the Histories folder and not in a subfolder. I did try expanding the php path from $cms['tngpath'] = "../"; to $cms['tngpath'] = "../../"; without success. Am I missing a path structure or is it inherent in TNG that I can't store the php files and its images together in a 'story sub-folder' under Histories? As always, I appreciate your help. MSB [I hope this is has been submitted to the right place on the forum . . . my topics always seem a little 'grey' for the available headings . . . I might need a training class]
  4. I INSTALLED MAC CATALINA AND GOT A NEW MODEM (is this relevant). TNG (V 11) RUNS UNDER WORDPRESS IN MAP GENEALOGY (WP is ok). AL OF A SUDDEN A LOT OF WARNINGS AT STARTUP OF TNG: Warning: Illegal string offset 'subroot' in /home/xxxxx/xxxxx/xxxxxx.nl/public_html/genealogy/subroot.php on line 3 AND MUCH MORE LINES (FILE ATTACHED). What is going on? How to fix.? MFK WarningTNG_4oktober2019.rtf
  5. I have released Citation Master versions (TNG 11.0) , (TNG 11.1), and (TNG 11.1.2). This is a major update that adds: Formatted page references--Generated by getperson.php and suitable for copying by other genealogists. (Requested by Darryl Brady, Brian Larson, and Mark Middleton.) A new configuration file for the APA format, and updates to all other configuration files for the new page reference feature. The ability to prepend and append text to citation/source fields. (Requested by a few users who would like to add labels like 'Page:' to certain fields.) The ability to turn Citation Master's formatting engine on/off for citations, sources, references--controlled by mod parameters. (Requested by Darryl Brady and Bill Desjardin.) A new formatting instruction for inserting HTML breaks. (Requested by Ken Roy.) Improvements to the formatting engine's algorithm that eliminate some extra spacing that crept into sources and citations. Internationalization for 12 languages. In addition, the Citation Master Wiki page has been extensively updated to cover all the current features and provide additional examples and instructions on use. This version is recommended for all TNG 11 Citation Master users. Happy to help with any fine tuning of the configuration files. Bill Herndon Lindell-Herndon Genealogy

    Links to FamilyID

    How do I insert a FAMILY link (familyID) within a document (not just 'link to . . .' )? I think I am missing something fairly easy but haven't found an answer yet. I tried 'getfamily.php?familyID=' . . . but that must be incorrect. Can you help? I know how to insert a PERSON (personID) into a document/histories as a link using the following method: Links to Person pages . . . If you want to make a link from the Feature Page to the Individual Person, you would code the link as follows: <a href="<?php echo $cms['tngpath']; ?>getperson.php?personID=Innn&amp;tree=treeID">Person Name</a> where personID=Innn identifies the person by its TNG personID which is I plus a number and tree=treeID identifies the ID assigned to your tree. You should be able to determine this by looking an Individual page displayed by TNG.

    Event Report for Families

    I know how to create a TNG report to find a specific event connected to a specific person/individual. And I think I know that such a report does not exist for families. What I want to do is clean up, merge, combine, simplify Family Censuses. My tags, event names have changed over the years. I need to have more consistency. If I could just search, for example, which families are connected to the early, more generic "Federal Census (fam)" and to the more recent individual years, e.g. "Census1920 (fam)", I could then make the necessary adjustments. Even though I could export a GedCom and import into regular software (such as my safety backup database, RootsMagic) and then run a report there to find them, I would rather work a report in TNG. Has anyone tried this? Any ideas? Thanks!
  8. I would like to write an overview for a family - an introductory paragraph 'About this family' that might describe migration roots, family traditions, joint interests, anecdotes, etc. I know I can add such information as a note to an EVENT tag for both individuals and families - "More about this individual" or "More about the family" For Individuals: The 'story', if you will, appears as an Event item fairly close to the top of the individual's page (Name > Born > Gender > More about this person > Person ID > Last modified). I'm OK with that. In fact, I can use the 'Name' note field for notes that I might want to appear right under the name. BUT . . . For a couple, a family: The only place I can see the 'story' is on an individual's page, moving down the page, under Spouse/Partner > Married > More about this family > Children > Photos . etc. It would be ideal to have such a paragraph at the top of the Family Group sheet or chart as an overview, intro . . . but I know that would be a tricky tweak of the template. I would be satisfied to simply have Events show on the Family Group Sheet . . . somewhere, anywhere . . . at the top would be great but I would settle for inserting Event items before the children. Has anyone wanted to do this? Is there another way I could introduce an overview of a family? I'm open for ideas on this . . . Thanks!
  9. Would there be anyone interested in helping to develop a mod for a to-do list and research log? Or at least help me learn enough about the mod system to get me started? I have some ideas of what I would like to do, but my programming skills are a bit old school. Any suggestions or help would be most appreciated.
  10. I'm trying to figure out what *.php files I need to add my google analytics scripts to, and how/where the Google index/search scripts/codes. When I use search words such as Brown Genealogy, "person" name nothing from my site comes up. When I look at the access log on my site, I see lots of activity that isn't mine, but none of those "visits" are showing in my Google analytics account. Any help and or suggestions would be great. Google help on these are useless because it only gives for straight html and css settings. I didn't see a mod for either, and not finding other related topics in the forum. I'm using template 10 on v11.0.2, w/ simple_SEO mod
  11. While in admin mode, I'm seeing "Living" on people, this just started about an hour ago (from this posting), before that, I could see their names, DOB, all of it. I can see all of their information in edit. I'm getting the same thing in Edge, Chrome and Firefox. I've made no changes in my admin rights. Is there something I need to change, or mod (I've checked and not finding one on the wiki) I'm using v11.0.2, template 10.

    How can I move "Contact Us"

    I want to move Contact Us to the empty space below. I'm using v11, template 10. Please include a screen shot of the code placement so I don't get it wrong.
  13. I have released Simple SEO versions (TNG 11.0+), (TNG 11.1), and (TNG 11.1.1+). This version changes the way in which meta keywords are generated, using a list of GEDCOM tags instead of individual tags in the mod parameters. So now...any custom event's value can be added to meta keywords by adding its GEDCOM tag to the list. Aliases (tag: ALIA) and nicknames (tag: NICK) are supported by default. Other useful tags might include occupation (tag: OCCU) or married name (commonly _NAMM). Individual names and nicknames entered in TNG still have built-in support. This version also adds HTML encoding to keyword values to correct cases where a quoted nickname or other instances of special characters are included in a name or event value. This version is optional for Simple SEO mod users. Please see the Simple SEO Wiki page for additional information. Bill Herndon Lindell-Herndon Genealogy
  14. When I started with TNG I had several family lines of my wife's and my own which I brought across in one huge GEDCOM. Lately I have been receiving concerned (nasty??) email messages from people who are complaining because their details can be accessed by the casual visitors. Even though the only details that show are initials and a surname, they say that is too much. My question: if I put their unwanted (in TNG) family lines into separate branches, is there a way that I can delete everyone in these branches with just a few keystrokes? Many of these branches will have many thousands of names. The only other way that I can think of is to delete everything (somehow - close the website?) and make separate GEDCOMs of the family lines that I want in TNG and start all over again. I only want the family lines concerned with my Guild of One-Name Studies to be in the TNG website. Hoping this makes sense and hoping somebody can help.
  15. I have a FRESH install of v11.1.2 with template 13 and no MODs installed. I installed the files, imported a GEDCOM, and did the setup. I used the readme.html "simple" setup to get the permissions, etc. The only non-standard thing was that I used the option to move the specified *config.php files to a location above my public_html folder. My system is closed and users must register to view any content. I set up a branch and added the labels so that I have 57 people in 17 families in the branch. I added a demo user with only guest privileges on the (only) tree and restricted the user to the specified branch. But when the user signs in, they have access to all non-living persons in the tree. They can also download gedcoms and make suggested edits - even though they were denied those privileges when the user was created. I cannot post a user/password in a public forum because this would open my entire database of non-living people to the public. Any ideas about what is wrong with my security? Is this the correct forum? Ray (the TNG nubie)
  16. I have spent about 60 hours working over the last week on linking sources and media to people. Tonight I said to myself, "you really ought to back things up after making all of those changes". So I went to the Utilities page, selected all of my files and in the "With selected" field I (stupidly) selected "Restore" instead of "Backup". So, of course, it restored all of my files to their state on June 3, before I spent 60 hours modifying them. :-( To top it off, I discovered that my hosting service wasn't running automatic backups, so I can't restore from there. I'm probably totally screwed, but is there any secret door in TNG that I can use to unrestore my restore?
  17. I know how to link a person or family within a document via CPanel. Is there an easy way to quickly link within TNG's 'Notes' without using HTML codes etc.? I hope this might be a simple thing . . . for example (with both men entered in the database, different family lines) and the Name Note for James Whitaker Shaw stating something like . . . "John Whitaker Shaw may have been named for John Whitaker, the Historian of Manchester (b.1735), etc." . . . can I add a link to John Whitaker, the Historian, using his ID, so the reader can go directly to that individual's page? Note that in this example, the two men have not yet been proven to be related. I know I could create an Event of sorts, add the info from the note there, and add a connection through the "Duplicate for:" option but I really just need a quick linking option within Notes. Any ideas? Thanks!
  18. I'd like to see a feature added in which there is some kind of obvious indication to admins that a note has been checked Private. Something, that at a glance would verify to an administrator the note has in fact been checked to ensure it’s privacy without having to actually click on and see the note. The method I currently use is to add the designation PVT at the end of each note, but I've found it isn't necessarily foolproof in knowing those notes are in fact private. Thank you for your time and consideration.
  19. Is there a code, or a symbol, an admin can use, among text that CAN be seen by guests of the website, that would make invisible the text within the code or symbols? i.e. If I have the text of a source that says in its entirety the following: "Jones Gedcom file adding 953 unique names, submitted by Joe Jones (1911-1999). NOTE: RLG has found numerous mistakes and duplicates among the data provided by this source which have been eliminated as they are discovered." Is there a way I can keep the last line (the note) invisible to all except for admins? Thank you for your time and consideration Rick https://clearfielddescendants.com/

    What is an Image Map?

    I thought I knew what the image map feature would do from the edit photo screen, but after numerous attempts, I'm unable to see any result whatsoever. My impression was that you can outline a section of a bigger photo and add that cropped version as an image to another person's page. i.e. Take a photo of several people and from wihin the edit photo page, using the Image Map section, crop an image of just one of them, making it the default photo for that individual's page. I go through the entire process, assign what I've just done to an individual and see the code in the Image Map box below the photo. I save the results, but nothing ever shows on the targeted individual's page. Am I mistaken? If I am, maybe someone can explain what the feature is designed to accomplish. If I'm correct, what magic step am I overlooking? Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
  21. V11.0.2 I have several persons with two parents/families, as in birth and adopted parents. On the person page, there is an ancestor tab. The ancestor display seems to be inconsistent as to which set of parents is used for the ancestor display. Sometimes its the birth parent and sometimes its the adopted parent. I would think that the ancestor query should be qualified so that only birth p[parents are traced. Is there something that I am missing? or some way to force the birth parent to be used? Thanks very much Dave
  22. Hello, I have problems with displaying characters in French only with the customconfig menu. The other menus are OK. I reloaded the french-UTF8 folder without success. tng 12.02 Template 17
  23. Hello, I'm running into an issue when attempting to display the custom event types in the administration of TNG 11.1.2. The query fails and returns this message: An error has occurred in the TNG software. This could be due to a setup issue, an incomplete upgrade or a program bug. If you are the site owner, you may contact TNG support for help with this problem. Please copy the query below and paste it into your message. Query: SELECT tng_eventtypes.eventtypeID, tag, description, display, type, keep, collapse, ordernum, count(eventID) as total_events FROM tng_eventtypes LEFT JOIN tng_events ON tng_eventtypes.eventtypeID = tng_events.eventtypeID GROUP BY eventtypeID ORDER BY tag, description LIMIT 50 MySQL server has gone away My database has many, many events and obviously the LEFT JOIN puts to much load on the MySQL server. A modified query that uses INNER JOIN works, but takes very long, and does not include those eventtypes that are not (yet) used, so it is not an acceptable solution. TNG version 10 did not do a LEFT JOIN for counting the events, so, this was not a problem in v10. Any ideas how to optimize the query to work / work fast? Thanks, Dietmar
  24. URL: https://www.sandersonancestors.com After upgrading from Version 9 to 11.0.1, the names of individual Albums are now showing in the menu on the homepage (see screenshot). In the past, I had edited the linkarea section of index.php file to control what items showed on the menu. Now, I cannot figure out which lines of code are causing the Albums to show. I've tried commenting out various lines which did not work. Then I tried pasting the whole linkarea section from my old index.php file into the new one, and that did remove the Albums, but all the remaining menu items were in disarray and overlapping. I looked at the Trim Media utility and that does not appear to be germaine to this issue. I'd appreciate any help you can provide.
  25. I have just used the "Refresh Living" section in Import/Export>>Secondary Processes and TNG has marked over 4,000 people as Living even though their death date is present. Far too many to modify by hand. Is this a fault with TNG or do I need to modify a setting somewhere? I have also noticed when adding a new person TNG automatically defaults to marking the person as Living.
