    Mobile burgermenu

    I'm using the Kloosterman method to integrate Wordpress and TNG. After the upgrade to version 14 everything works fine. But I have still problems with the burgermenu on my smartphone. When going to the TNG-pages the menu is un-collapsed and it is not possible to collabs it. I have attache a screenprint of the problem. Any hint?
  2. Hi All, I would like to share this Shortcode Constructor with you. TNG Shortcode Constructor is a stripped down version of The TngApi V3.3 plugin for Wordpress. You may download latest release here. TngApi V3.3, a stand-alone plugin, published in 2015, integrates smoothly with TNG to display genealogy data in Wordpress pages. It's main attraction was the ability of the user to add / amend family data and ability of the administrator to perform one-click transfer of this data to tng database. With changes to MySQL, my extremely limited knowledge of mySQL and changes to TNG database structure , I have found it virtually imposible to support this feature. (I understand that, now, a TNG mod, the Family Group Worksheet ,has the facility for administrators to merge data in to TNG database.) Plan is to have the TNG Shortcode Constructor do everything the TngApi did, except update TNG data. Plugin obtains it's credentials from TNG setup. Plugin shares it's variables with TngApi Plugin Settings are in Wordpress Admin>Settings It implements Privacy Credentials in the TNG General SetUp>Privacy and User , if logged in. I have kicked it off with the following shortcodes from the TngApi. TngWp_birthdays List birthdays for the selected month. TngWp_danniversaries List death anniversaries for the selected month. TngWp_gone (Gone But Not Forgotten). Gives birth dates and deat hdates for yesterday, today and tomorrow. It is encapsulated in a DIV and it may be possible to include that in your content. ( I have used similar in my Home Page) TngWp_LandingPage This is similar to 'TngWp_gone' but has user name, birthdays, marriage anniversaries and death anniversaries added. TngWp_manniversaries List of marriage anniversaries for the selected month. TngWp_MyShortcode Template for adding your own shortcode TngWp_submitImage Upload images from Wordpress. Image will be stored in a TNG Media Collection specified by you. I am not sure whether this is helpful or whether it will work but I am hoping that we may start having contributions of variety of shortcodes to add to this constructor, for the TNG community to share. If you would like to know how to add your own shortcode, lots more details on GitHub Repository, here This very much a project that can evolve so please free to Fork and submit Pull requests if you would like to make changes to the Plugin. I would really love to have your feedback, so if you download, let me know Thanks. (PS; I still have not got the hang of formating this post😫. Hence several edits)

    anti spam

    Just wondering what you guys use for WordPress anti-spam? Is the default Akismet Anti-Spam plugin any good or what would you recommend? I was looking at what akismet is and it seems it's just for anti spam in comments. On my site I don't use comments. I don't let anyone login to wordpress, it's just a front end for TNG. but maybe in the future, I'll use a guestbook plugin and/or a forum plugin...

    Which css files to use

    Hey everyone. Question about the Kloosterman Method. When you guys are talking about using wordpress css file(s) instead of tng css files, what wordpress css files are you referring to? The actual wordpress css or the themes style.css? Just a little confused about that. I have a live test site setup (well not setup, but viewable). https://wptng.joneshyman.org

    TNG page alignment

    I would ask that someone please take a look at my test site https://wptng.joneshyman.org and look at my tng pages from the main nav menu. some are correct, but most are not the full container width or just plain messed up or both. Please let me know how I can straighten them out.

    Trying to figure out some issues

    I have 2 questions. Been searching and looking over what I've done on my wp-tng site (kink in signature). First, I've used Elementor to create the header and inserting the Primary nav menu, In the front page, works fine, but on any other page, the drop downs don't show up. I know I probably have missed a setting some where. Second, when you look at some of the tng pages, some are looking correct, where others are not filling the width of the container. Oh, and how do you disable the ribbon menu bar? Your thoughts, ideas, etc.?
  8. I use the Kloosterman method to integrate tng into Wordpress. After the update of TNG to version 14. I miss (see picture) the possibility to log in. Wordpress theme: Avada 7.9.1. Wordpress version: 6.1.1. TNG: version 14 Anyone have an idea how I can get this back?
  9. Hi I wonder if anyone can help me please. I have successfully integrated TNG into WordPress using the Kloosterman method. However I have 2 display issues that I am trying to resolve. 1. The WordPress header displays, which I don't want on the page. 2. The TNG page is going too close to the left hand edge of the page. Any help gratefully received Dave Simpson

    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.

    Transfer localhost to live site

    Good morning all. I think I'm ready to transfer my localhost site to my live site. Should I use 1 of the 2 methods described here, https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-move-wordpress-from-local-server-to-live-site/, or just install everything from scratch, or another method? I've done a lot of work on it but it's still a long way from actually changing it over to my main domain name, joneshyman.org. the new subdomain is https://wptng.joneshyman.org (nothing there yet). It's purpose will be for when I have issues and post in the forum here, you can actually have a live site to look at and offer comments and suggestions, which will be appreciated.

    [SOLVED] Search and Reset buttons

    Hey y'all. I've searching hi and lo for the blue color of the Search and Reset buttons and since it's on hover, can't really get the right color with a color pic app. I've searched: all the tng css files in the css folder, used different color pic apps, etc. I found where you can change the text color, but I don't want to change that, just the button itself. Can anyone point me in the right direction on this? FYI, using wp 6.0.2, Astra Pro 3.9.2 on windows 11 pro and Wampserver 64bit. One pic is the blue and the other is the color I want to change it to:

    WP themes

    Just out of curiosity, which themes do you WP guys use? Thanks
  15. 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.

    starting a new project - WP

    I'm starting a new project with WordPress. I've been going thru the admin section and seeing what it's all about. I have a question or 2 about this new project of mine. 1. I registered for a new account on WordPress.org earlier today but have not received the validation email from them and cannot find a contact to help remedy the situation. any ideas? thanks, jp EDIT: I think I already asked #2 in another post, so i'll get rid ot it here.

    my new project

    no nore wordpress project. no replies please.
  21. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. 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
