    TNG and Wordpress integrated

    Hi I have made my family website as an integration between TNG and Wordpress. I use TNG for the family-tree and Wordpress for all the stories. All stories in WordPress are linked to the mentioned people in TNG and in TNG - when looking at a person (or familiy) you can see (and link to) stories in WordPress. All maintained by programming. The reasons I have made it this way is: 1) Compared to the possibilities in Wordpress the media-section in TNG, I think TNG has too few options 2) I am not the only one maintaining the website. It has been essential to me that my co-editors should not distinguish between frontend and backend. So with some MOD's and a control via menus, they can maintain family tree and stories from frontend Feel free to check the website: www.surlykkerne.dk (It's in Danish ) /Laurids
  2. Hello, everyone, after the update to 13.1 b2 I can no longer import Gedcom! Even a Gedcom file with one person no longer works! I always have the same import window and nothing happens! What do I do now ??? Please help me!!!
  3. I've posted the 1st release candidate for Simple SEO V7. No new features in this release...yet, but I've included PHP-8 compatibility updates, numerous bug fixes, and support for meta keywords from familychart.php. In addition, I've simplified/streamlined the code inserted into getperson.php to correct some long-standing mod conflicts with Sosa and Relationship Display The release candidate can be downloaded here or from the Wiki page. This update was developed against TNG 13.0 and 13.0.4 but may work with all releases from TNG 12.0.3 forward. Comments, bugs, and suggestions for additional features are very welcome.

  4. I seem to be having regular problems with TNG operations. Here is the latest: I start MAMP, and get a notice to upgrade the MySQL databases. The instructions say to go to Tools > Upgrade MYSQL Databases, but in MAMP, under Tools, I do not have that option. Screenshot 1 There was also a notice to backup my databases before performing the MySQL upgrade, so I tried to start TNG, and get the following message instead of my TNG Home page: "Error: TNG is not communicating with your database. Please check your database settings and try again. Settings can be found under Admin/Setup/General Settings/Database, or at the top of your config.php file." On the MAMP start page (See Screenshot 1 again) it says MYSQL can be administered using phpMyAdmin. So I try to open phpMyAdmin, and get the following error message in Screenshot 2: This is WAY too complex for me, there are NO useful instructions, and the information provided conflicts with what I see. I cannot backup my TNG databases using TNG, because I cannot open TNG, and I am afraid to click the button to upgrade the MYSQL databases anyway because I don't know what will happen, and it appears I will lose my TNG databases, or at least my TNG work over the last week or so that has not been backed up. How do I get past all these errors and get TNG operating again? Jim Culbert

    Access to multiple tree

    Hi I have created 2 trees on my site and I have also created a 'guest' Account with restricted access to only one of the trees. If I login as this user and click on the 'Advanced' search button, both trees are visible and will return records from the tree not selected in the user setup 'Restrict the above rights to the following:' tree button? Any advice appreciated.
  6. Hello! This is my first post here and I'm truly loving TNG as our main genealogy site. So I've been having lots of fun with the OpenStreetMap heatmap too. However, since yesterday the location markers and cluster numbers stopped being displayed and the heatmap also doesn't show newly geocoded locations anymore. The console gives me these errors (see the attached images), but I have no idea how to fix this. Before the heatmap stopped working as it should, I geocoded some new locations and deleted some duplicate ones but I'm not sure if this triggered the error. Also I do have some uncommon characters in a few place names and person names, such as the № sign and the [ ] and () brackets and that's about it. But before the heatmap stopped working it worked fine while I used these characters in some names. So I'm really not sure what's causing the error. Any help would be appreciated because I love the heatmap! By the way I'm using TNG v.13.0.3 and OpenStreetMap v. And I have a total of 194 places (all geocoded with decimal points not decimal commas), if that means anything.
  7. I want to install TNG v. 13 on a newer MacBook Air running OSX Big Sur, as my current desktop computer (with TNG) is much older and getting cranky. I have installed MAMP successfully, and unpacked the TNG zip file for v.13.0.3. I am now at step 7 of the installation readme file, and when I accept the default Database Collection: entry of utf8_general_ci, and then click the Save and Create button, I get a popup window shown in the attached screenshot. Closing that popup, the messages says: Please wait, attempting to process. Nothing else happens. I have tried this several times with the same result. Can anyone point to anything I can do at this point to move forward? Jim Culbert

    CSS issue in Statistics

    In completely rebuilding my site from scratch, I decided on a dark theme for Avada. I am having trouble however in getting a CSS string to change the font color of the titles below the pie charts. So far, I have attempted to add everything one at a time to mycustomtng.css that contains the preamble .c3- . I have even attempted this in the c3.css file. No joy anywhere. See the barely visible black text, which needs to be white. Yes, I have used the !important tag... This one should have done it. .c3-legend-item-event { font-size: 20px; color: white !important; } Does anyone have any ideas?
  9. It's been 2 1/2 years since the last release of Simple SEO, and it seems like I should get to work on a new version. I've already checked the code for PHP-8 compatibility, and there are a few things to be fixed there. I also plan to try and solve some mod-dependency issues that have cropped up over the years. But setting those changes aside...are there any suggestions the TNG Community have for V7? New features? Changes to existing features? Kudos? Complaints? In case you're not aware of what Simple SEO is used for, take a look at the Wiki page. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Bill Herndon Lindell-Herndon Genealogy
  10. Citation Master V9 has been released and is available from the TNG Wiki. This is a major update that adds two new features, incorporates a series of changes for PHP-8 compatibility, and adds an example configuration for the Evidence Explained citation format. The new features are: Source/Citation Thumbnails -- All sources that have an attached media file are displayed in the citation area of individuals and families. (This feature can be enabled/disabled in Mod Manager parameters.) Context-sensitive Formatting -- Format specifications now support the ability to have different instruction sets for source displays and citations displays. The idea here is to be able to create "short format" citations as one would find in scholarly publications, but the feature allows for any complexity for the formatting. See the Wiki page for examples of how to enable this feature or take a look at the Chicago Manual of Style (CMoS) or the APA example configuration files. V9 can be downloaded here or from the Wiki. This update is optional and works for all releases from TNG 13.0 forward. However, if you are intending to switch to PHP-8, then you'll need this version. A back-port to TNG 12 is coming and should be available in a few weeks. Thanks to everyone who tested the release candidates and especially to Kathy Kult whose Evidence Explained-based configuration file was the basis of the new example.

    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.

  13. Hi I have made my site with Wordpress as the primary CMS and TNG as a part of this. The integration is done with the Kloosterman method. I have disabled all the menues in TNG. All navigation is done with Wordpress menues. I have one (at least 😀) problem, when I access the websitet from a smartphone (or tablet): The hamburger-menu works fine on pages/blogs in Wordpress. But when I access a TNG program the hamburger-menu gets destroyed. I think I have to disable the support for hamburger-menu in TNG, but I am not sure. (And I cant figure out how to do it). Any ideas how I can have Wordpress menues on a smartphone? I have a staging- site where you can see it: www.surlykkerne.dk/stg-61581 It is in danish. A little help: All submenues bellow "Slægtstræ" are TNG programs and all submenues bellow "Historier" are Wordpress blogs/pages. Regards Laurids Petersen
  14. I failed to uninstall Mods before upgrading to latest version, now Mods unavailable, what can I do to fix it
  15. I have posted the first release candidate (rc1) of Citation Master v9 on the TNG Wiki. This is a major update that adds two new features and incorporates PHP-8 compatibility: Source/Citation thumbnails for all sources that have an attached media file are displayed in the citation area of individuals and families. (This feature can be enabled/disabled in Mod Manager parameters.) Format specifications now support the ability to have different instruction sets for source displays and citations displays. The idea here is to be able to create "short format" citations as one would find in scholarly publications, but the feature allows for any complexity for the formatting. The Citation Master Wiki page has details and examples of the new features and Lindell-Herndon Genealogy is running the release candidate and has additional examples. The release candidate can be downloaded here. This update was developed against TNG 13.0.4 and may be compatible with, but has not been tested against, earlier versions from TNG 13.0 forward. Comments, bugs, and suggestions for additional features are very welcome. Bill Herndon Lindell-Herndon Genealogy
  16. Hello! I'm considering getting TNG and using Wordpress to host it. Before I proceed, I have a question. My grandparents are from two different towns in Southern Italy. Over the past 25 years, I've amassed a large database of families from both towns. I would like to make a separate TNG page for each but under one website. Do I need to purchase two TNGs, or can I use one for both pages? Also, would it be possible to set up a login page for each for privacy reasons? Thanks! Jason

    Mod to hide exact birth places

    Hi everyone I´m new to TNG and my genealogy site is still under construction. Can anyone help me in this topic: My ancestors are nearly born in the same town and I know the adresses of the birth places. So the birth places are specified like Brienner Straße 6, Munich, Bavaria, Germany. Advantage is you can see the exact birth place of each ancestor in TNG on Google Maps. But I don´t want that guest users are able to see the full address, only town and country. Is there a mod out to fix that? How are you dealing with exact birth places in TNG? Thanks for reply :) Mona

    Problem diplaying PDF

    Hello all, unfortunately PDF files are not displayed on my tablet (Android) within TNG (V13.04). (The display of the PDF works on a Windows computer without any problem). Also the installation of the PDFjs Viewer Mod V13.0.0.1 did not help. Maybe someone has an idea before I have to turn the PDF files into JPG files...

    Custome Event Does Not Display

    I am using TNG v. 13.0.3 on my home computer, and just found an instance where a custom event does not display. I have added this event to an individual, and now notice it does not show up on the public view. From the custom event type list, the custom event shows as: Tag Type/Description Display ID Order # Ind/Fam On Import Collapse Events MED Medical 295 0 Individual Accept Yes 59 Refresh the browser screen is not the answer. When I use advance search for this Tree and select Medical fact exists, I get 52 results, including the individual for whom I just added this custom event. But when I check these individuals in public view, none have this custom event showing up in public view. How do I make this custom event show up in public view? As a corollary to this question, is it possible to privatize custom events? Thanks!
  20. Often I find it useful to create and add medialinks to multipage .pdf files to display in an individual's document section. On all my PC browsers these files render correctly and let me move between pages with no problems. I noticed when I access my site on any browser on my iPad and try to view a .pdf it only shows the first page and will not let me see the additional pages in the file. In trying to solve the problem I read many suggestions that the reason was because none of the browsers on my iPad were able to add an extension for pdf's. However, I put that to a test. I uploaded the exact same .pdf file to Ancestry.com into an individual's 'Gallery Page'. With my iPad and using Safari I viewed the exact same .pdf file on Ancestry.com's website and it rendered correctly and let me move between pages. Same results with Edge and Chrome on my iPad. Worked great. However, the exact same .pdf file will NOT render correctly from my TNG site viewed from my iPad. The file works great viewed from my PC. For an example, you can go to my website. Without a login you can click 'All Media'. On the resulting page, in the searchbox type 'Wunsche'. Click the resulting medialink ("Wunsche Bros. Cafe celebrates 100-year history in Old Town Spring". If you are on a PC the file will show both pages perfectly. If you are on an iPad it will only show the top page. The point is that I do not understand how it could be a problem with browsers running on iPadOS not allowing extensions when it renders correctly from Ancestry, but NOT from my TNG site. I am sure I'm not doing something correctly. I would like all aspects of my website to work correctly on most popular devices. Would really appreciate any help. https://thebrownfamilytree.info
  21. I have published the 2nd release candidates for NearDark2 and NearDawn2 for my 'cleanroom' re-implementations of the templates NearDark and NearDawn. These new templates are part of a package called eGenea Free Templates and improve on my original TNG templates by providing: Streamlined CSS that's built with easy modification in mind Contemporary web style (new larger fonts, more spacing, "meta" section/footer) Selectable features (...that can be shown or hidden via template settings). Basic localization for Czech (CS), Danish (DA), Dutch (NL), English (EN), French (FR), German (DE), Italian (IT), Norwegian (NO), Polish (PL), Portuguese (PT), Spanish (ES), and Swedish (SV) Below are images of the new templates NearDark2 and NearDawn2, and NearDark2 is currently running on my own site. Two additional templates DayLight and NightLight are under development and the 1st release candidates will be available in about 3 weeks. Check out the Wiki article eGenea Free Templates for a full list of features and download links. I'm continuing to work on these while creating the new templates DayLight and NightLight and any comments, feature suggestions, and bug reports, would be appreciated. Thanks Bill Herndon Lindell-Herndon Genealogy
  22. I've successfully run MariaDB (the 'drop-in' successor to MySQL, created by the original team that authored MySQL many years ago) on my TNG live site for years. Now, with Apple making it harder and harder for software developers to install and manage development tools, I've had to switch to Brew for maintaining software that my TNG test installations require. One good positive development, though, was the possibility of leaving MySQL (and Oracle the owner of MySQL) behind forever with a move to MariaDB. All good...or so I thought. My first attempt to create a fresh TNG 13.0.4 test installation stalled at database table creation. The script just never finishes. Approximately half of the tables get created, and then...nothing. Process inspection shows that MariaDB does not appear to be doing any work (so...no live-lock though perhaps a deadlock, I suppose). PHP does not appear to be working either. A second attempt stalled as well, but after getting not quite as far through the tables as the first. My system: MariaDB 10.6.4 / PHP 7.4.2 / macOS 11.5.2 (otherwise known as "Big Suck" ... oh, sorry... "Big Sur") Any insights would be appreciated. Bill Herndon Lindell-Herndon Genealogy
  23. After having experienced systemd-related problems with my earlier MariaDB 10.3 installation on my own server, I switched to MySQL 8. The server is Ubuntu 20.04 based. After completely removing the MariaDB 10.3 and all its config files I installed MySQL 8 and re-imported the TNG database (~58000 names) had dumped from MariaDB. It all seemed to run fine, until I had to update the database with an updated GEDCOM file from Gramps were I do my research. TNG is only used to provide the data online. What happened was that the GEDCOM import went superslow!! Like 100 names per minute!! It normally takes a few minutes to import the complete 58000. I have had this problem once before with TNG 12 when switching genealogy software on my laptop caused the database to be formatted into latin1 | latin1_swedish_ci. After having switched the database back to utf8 | utf8_general_ci it all worked normal again. However, this time the character set is ok. It's something else going on.The PHP logs shows nothing wrong at all, and using the data that's already in the database works like a charm. Only the import is erroneous After having tested the GEDCOM file with both Humogen and other TNG-type web tools I ended up totally cleaning out MySQL 8 and installing MariaDB 10.6, but the same problem occurred there. As a last resort I cleaned out the newly installed MariaDB 10.6 and went for the default Ubuntu 20.04 MariaDB which is 10.3, and it worked perfectly! I have not done anything to the PHP config during all these actions since PHP has been working fine all the time with my 3 Wordpress sites and more. Any clues? I'm good for now, but when Ubuntu 22.04 arrives in some months, what then?
  24. I am using TNG v. 13.0.3 on my home computer and have also chosen to use Template 6, which prominently displays a random "Feature Photo" in the center of the home page. I recently decided to add additional Trees to my database, and then decided to reorganize my media folders to correspond to those new Trees by setting the "Separate media in tree folders:" option on the Setup >> Configuration >> General Settings admin. page to "Yes" and then clicking the "Convert" button. After doing the conversion, I checked my media folders, and found that most, but not all, of my media were transferred successfully. I then proceeded to move the remaining media appropriately. However, one change that I did not anticipate is that the the "Feature Photos" oftentimes, but not always, now display the full image size, which is way too big for my home page, rather than the former display of just the thumbnails. I checked a few of these too large images that were being displayed, and the thumbnails are still located in the same new folders with their primary images. My questions to the TNG Community are, what controls the display of the Feature Photos, and is there anything I can do to have the "Feature Photos" only display the thumbnails once again? Thanks!
  25. Does anyone else have an issue with fan charts where the 6th an 7th generations are misaligned with the lines of the fan chart in the light green section? It seems to affect just that section of the chart. If the description doesnt make sense, I've attached a screenshot to demo what I'm talking about. Is there anything I can do to correct this?
