NOTE: This Mod is not applicable to TNG 12.x and TNG 13.x – similar features were added in to TNG 12
This Mod for TNG 10, originally developed by Steven Willingale, adds a set of pages that display First Names, and First and Middle Names, in a similar way that Surnames are already handled by TNG.
The Mod was revised for TNG 10 and TNG 10.1 by Roger Moffat.
This version for TNG 10.1 now includes the First Names Extra Mod, so it doesn’t need to be installed separately.
Version 10.1.0.1 includes a fix to prevent misuse of the forename(s)-oneletter.php files to attempt to load maliciously crafted URLs.
Version 10.1.0.2 makes the Mod TNG Mobile compatible, so pages display optimised for Desktop or Mobile display.
Version 10.1.0.3 fixes some bugs in the queries and counting results (some still remain – e.g. the report will show xx names where First Name = “Julie” but clicking to see those names will show a larger number as it will show “Julie” and “Juliette”. Similar for Ann and Anne.)
Version 10.1.0.4 fixes the problem noted above where a search for First Name = “Julie” would also find Juliet and Juliette as well as Julie.
Version 10.1.0.5 corrects the similar issue for the “Middle Names” part of this Mod – so “Elliot” is shown separately as a Middle Name from “Elliott” now.
Version 10.1.0.6 corrects an issue in the list of all First and Middle names when clicking on a name – thanks Michael Papousek for letting me know about this.
