  1. Hi there - I've had a site for a while now which integrates TNG (v. 13) and Wordpress, at https://montgomeryhoffmann.com/wp/. With help from this Forum I was able to fix my issue with an overlapping title and tagline on the Genealogy page, so I'm hoping someone can help me again. The TNG sections of my site (https://montgomeryhoffmann.com/wp/genealogy and related pages) have a lot of white (or pale gray) text on the white background, making it difficult or impossible to see. I've commented out pretty much all of the mytngstyle.css page (the main part of the website looks fine), but maybe the font color in this area is defined somewhere else? I've attached a screenshot where I highlighted part of the white text (and you can see some of the other slightly-more-visible text also). Megan

    Title/tagline spacing issue

    Hi there - I've had a site for a while now which integrates TNG (v. 13) and Wordpress, at https://montgomeryhoffmann.com/wp/. Today I switched to the WordPress Avant theme. Everything transitioned beautifully except for the title and tagline on the TNG page (https://montgomeryhoffmann.com/wp/genealogy). I've attached screenshots of how the title section looks on the main site vs. the TNG sections (title font is larger and overlaps the tagline). Does anyone have suggestions for how to fix this wonkiness? Megan

    Mobile Menus Won’t Collapse

    Hello! I updated my site’s TNG to version 13 and now notice that the menus on the mobile version of the site do not collapse. In fact, they start out expanded and they overlap and obscure most of the screen. Anyone else have this issue? I did have some hiccups with database tables not being the same encoding or correlation, but I was able to find the solution on this forum. You can see what I mean here (though you must open it on mobile): https://www.thorinfamily.net/genealogy/searchform.php Much thanks ahead of time to any who lend a hand.

    WP themes

    Just out of curiosity, which themes do you WP guys use? Thanks
  8. Hi, I've started to integrate TNG on my website and encountered to my surprise a fatal error after installing the plug-in, reading the instructions thrice and making my site unreachable. After some minor tweaks and disabeling the plugin I searched for why the fatal error occured. As the error was nicely reported via my website email it turned out that in the source code on line 367 there were two single quotes missing, if that is the correct word for them, in regard to the variable mbtng_url_to_admin, see line below: echo "<td width=\"200\"><p class=\"submit\" style=\"padding:0\"><input type=\"submit\" name=\"GoToAdmin\" value=\"Go to TNG Admin\" onclick=\"newwindow=window.open('" . get_option(mbtng_url_to_admin) . "')\" style=\"margin-right:1em\"/></p></td>\n"; I changed that to: get_option('mbtng_url_to_admin') and no critical error anymore. I am now able to open the admin page from the WP-plugin but alas not from my website. Is there anyone with the same issue? Using WP 5.8.2 and TNG 13.1 by the way and am a newbie to WP.

    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
  10. 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
  11. Hello, I'm testing (Off-line) TNG version 13.0.3 in Wordpress. I used the "Kloosterman-method" and it works good. Only in TNG are the orginal colors (dark-blue) in the pages that were generated in TNG (the tabs and the in that page stay dark-blue and don't have the basic color(s) of the theme that I installed in Wordpress (Simple Life). What can I do to change this? Jan Bos, Excuses for the language I'm not English and in school it was for me very difficult to learn it. In school I got an 4 in the yearly report. But now I do my best.
  12. 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
  13. Hello, I must preface this by stating that I have zero knowledge or understanding of anything I'm about to write (therein lies the problem!). I have done a fair bit of searching online, but I've not managed to find anything I can actually understand. It may seem at odds with the idea of a family history website but, for a variety of reasons, I would like to use TNG locally - for the foreseeable future, at least. The thought being that one day I will have a site worth making public, at which point I will look into web-hosting options, but that's a far-off goal and until then I should like to just be able to faff about with it offline as and when I am able to. Following advice and some further reading, I have installed Laragon for this purpose (I use Windows 10, albeit it on an old and decrepit machine). And now I am stuck. I am reasonably sure that I would like to do the whole integrating-TNG-with-Wordpress thing (the Kloosterman method, rather than the plugin). By any chance, does there exist a 'how-to' guide for doing this with Laragon? Or would anybody be able to provide basic instructions, please? I'm hoping that's not too big an ask, but I really am clueless so can only apologise if it is. Many thanks in advance =]
  14. Hi folks, I am migrating my tng site to a web hosting site and can only use one database it appears. I have wordpress/tng working in one site but find that this is using a database which is not up to date. My live TNG site uses an unique wordpress database and an unique tng database. The problem I am trying to solve is to use the wordpress setup from my old server setup and my newer tng database by migrating the wordpress site to the new host and then adding tng to the website and then merge to two databases into one. So question, is it possible to merge the tng database into the existing wordpress database? Sorry but rereading this makes my head hurt. Too many things on my plate right now, getting my offgrid house up in the Cascade mountains on the market up, getting my 1963 Dodge Dart convertible running without overheating, and then migrating to the new host. Thanks and Cheers! john
  15. I did follow the steps as mentioned in this guide. I have 2 sub folders: I have the following diagnostics: see image attached: Aantekening 2020-08-30 200509.png I followed all the steps and when I open the adress https://www.paulvanachterberg.nl/genealogie/ it leaves all blank. I also added the TNG pugin options. See the image TNG Plugin options. I also added Site Design and Definition. See the image Desing and setting. Any ideas what I might have missed?

    Event Map Layout issue

    I am using TNG 13 and wordpress with the official wordpress/tng plugin. I am having an issue where the pins and even the Event Map label on the left are being put half way down, not at the top. I have tried all kinds of edits to make it show correctly but can not determine what is causing this. If I load the page directly everything is showing correctly, and if I choose a generic WP theme it shows correctly. Everything else on this wp theme shows correctly just having this issue on the getperson of an individual. You can see in the attachment how it is displaying.
  17. I recently added SSL to my Wordpress site. I have TNG running under the site. I used the Kloosterman method for TNG integration. Everything is working except the import. When I try to import a gedcom file it just hangs, so I know that I need to change something, but I don't know what. Any help would be appreciated. Kathie
  18. Hi, I’ve WP.4.2 and TNG 12.3 installed and use the WP-Plugin TNG WordPress Integration for Integration. I followed the instruction given in the wiki. My homepage is https://kuhnert.ch/ and with https://kuhnert.ch/stammbaum/ we see the TNG page, but there is no link working. What is wrong? Thanks, Klaus
  19. I already have my TNG site up and running. It's a project in progress ( https://thethomasshephardfamilytree.co.uk/ ) . What I want to do is incorporate it with WordPress. I was wondering if anybody has done a video tutorial on this or know of any that are available. I have searched Youtube and the internet but cannot find any. Any help will be very much appreciated. Many Thanks Thomsi
  20. Hi, I have been working with a local version of TNG and WP to set it up with the TNG Wordpress Plugin. All seems to work fine in the local version, but if I try to do the same in the online version the TNG header shows up expanded vertical under Wordpress, like this: ../wp/genealogy The local version looks normal like this: ../wp/genealogy I dont know why this is happening or what is triggering it and more important how to fix it. To make it more confusing so will the same index.php thats used for this show up normal if addressed directly: ../tng/index.php Any tip or idea of how to solve this will be much appreciated Regards Jastro
  21. I'm trying to integrate the TNG with Wordpress but that does not succeed. When I have edited the settings of the plugin I get een error in Wordpress and than I can inactivate the plugin and Wordpress is repaired again but I've tried it several times but everytime it's the same problem.

  22. I am integrating my family history site with WP so that I can blog and share more images and be more creative with the website design. I installed WP, I purchased the theme that was recommended - Avada, and I set up the root folder as directed and set up the topmenu, footer and meta as instructed but I think I must have done something wrong. Perhaps I didn't understand what a "sub-root folder" is and I put the TNG stuff in the wrong place in my C-Panel? I no longer have access to the backend of TNG, i.e. when I click on the link that used to take me to the backend of TNG I am sent to the WP Dashboard and so I can't complete Steps 4 and 5 of the tutorial. I don't seem to have any control over the site, it seems that when you pull the site up anyone could go in and edit it at this point. Right now there's been no design done so it's not an issue, but I'd like to figure out what I did now and fix it, find the TNG ancestor stuff, and lock the site down so the back end isn't accessible. The website is: https://grandmothersgrandfathers.com/ And I'm attaching a screenshot of my c-panel and root menu as it sits now. Thanks so much if anyone can help. Liz

    Help Needed

    Looking for someone to help with site update and various other issues. Priority being version update I have not been active on my site for a long while but left it up and just recently looked at it and was startled at all my issues I seem to have. I could not get back into the TNG forum as I forgot my password so I contacted Darrin Lythgoe for a place to start. He said the first thing I need to do is update my version first as I am running a VERY old version (8.3.1) and obtain an API key from Google maps In the past, I used a Wild-Type design to get my site up and running and complete all the customization but she is no longer available. I simply do not have the skills needed beyond small stuff. I also noticed that my site is not showing as secure. I have contacted my web host (Simply Hosting) and was told that my site i"s using a valid SSL certificate. But, not showing green padlock due to the presence of mixed content" I appreciate any assistance as I have a mess on my hands. Sharon Randall email: srandall54@att.net website: generationsgoneby.com
  24. I'm trying to understand how to write URL/URI links in TNG addons like the Family Group Worksheet to keep them compatible with WordPress and other CMS integrations. My scripts sometimes fail on WordPress sites and I'm pretty sure it's because links to other pages are not working correctly. I've already scoured the Internet with no joy, but I suspect all the real expertise is right here. Using the TNG function getURL() is not ideal, since my scripts often work from a TNG sub directory, where I need to define cms['tngpath'] to access TNG libraries, but works against my own scripts which are relative to the working directory of the addon, not the TNG root. So what does the CMS need? Could anyone with an integration like WordPress using the TNGcms class share a copy of that script with me to help me understand the internals? Any other guidance on this issue, such as which links are affected (only menus?) and which are not, would be most helpful. Thanks.

    Once again: No header no footer /WP/TNG)

    Sorry, but I can't solve the problem with the Kloosterman method - this old problem. I use: WP 5.3, (Theme: Spacious); TNG 12.02, PHP 7.3: TNG is placed a subfolder of WP called "Datenbank". WP is working fine, TNG is working fine. When I opened TNG in the WP-menue I see the "search-form" (correct) but no header or no footer. Instead there a two lines with an error for the header: Warning: include(wptng-topmenu.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /kunden/222818_70794/rp-hosting/8704/9704/typo3cms/combi/wp/datenbank/genlib.php on line 172Warning: include(): Failed opening 'wptng-topmenu.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /kunden/222818_70794/rp-hosting/8704/9704/typo3cms/combi/wp/datenbank/genlib.php on line 172 and for the footer: Warning: include(wptng-footer.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /kunden/222818_70794/rp-hosting/8704/9704/typo3cms/combi/wp/datenbank/genlib.php on line 234Warning: include(): Failed opening 'wptng-footer.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /kunden/222818_70794/rp-hosting/8704/9704/typo3cms/combi/wp/datenbank/genlib.php on line 234 The Wptng files are correct, no space or something else, like the instructions. The TNG template has the chanced header, footer and meta entries. The TNG config.php: $rootpath = "/kunden/222818_70794/rp-hosting/8704/9704/typo3cms/combi/wp/datenbank/"; $templatenum = ""; $templateswitching = "0"; $homepage = "http://www.combi.xn--ortssippenbcher-9vb.org/wp/"; $tngdomain = "http://www.combi.xn--ortssippenbcher-9vb.org/wp/datenbank/"; I changed homepage entry, but no success. (cache deleted every time) What is going wrong? Please do not write too specific in php-language. Thanks so lot. Jochen
