  1. hello , i know you use wordpress and TNG / WordPress integration for this site , can you send this plugin ?
    thank so much

  2. The plug in is available from the TNG Downloads Page.

  3. Hi Roger

    I love your addons you have created. I have recently upgraded TNG to the newest version v9 and was wondering if your “birthday list, death list, anniversary list” will be working on the new version?

    Thanks

    Paul

  4. As far as I know they work as is for TNG 9. I have got one of my sites upgraded, and plan on doing the others in the next few days – if I run into a problem that I don’t remember from upgrading previously I’ll update the files.

  5. Hi

    Where can I get the “Random Photo and Random Document” mod? Is that just the script form TNG template 6?

    Thanks

  6. Random Photo is part of TNG now. The ones I have for random photo and random doucment are modified from that to do things like get a document rather than a photo, and to pop the preview up to the right instead of the left (or vice versa). I never have got around to tidying them up to a single way to install them as there are parts in the .css file apart from the actual randomphoto script and a new background for the preview that is reversed from what TNG provides.

  7. Thanks so much…Works great!!!

  8. Sorry,,,using your birthday, anniversaries and deaths scripts. Should have mentioned that before. Using with TNG. I’m a complete newbie, no CSS knowledge whatsoever and was able to get this right my first time trying. Great instructions. Thanks again!

  9. Roger, thank you for your downloads and instructions. I’m using your lists on my home page, and I was even able to duplicate one of them for a burial list. I had been looking for a way to use the available space for content that was relevant and dynamic, and your lists provided exactly that!

  10. Thank you SO much! This would have been an issue for sure!

  11. I have been trying to set the text in the Birthdays, Anniversaries and Deaths script to be bold and underlined and can’t figure out how/where to do that. I am referring to the text that says “Birthdays for whatever the date is”…and Anniversaries and Deaths. Your help will be appreciated. The scripts work fine otherwise.

  12. There are two instances of groups of lines like this

    		echo "<div align=\"center\"><span class=\"smaller\">" . $headingnobirthdaystoday . ".</span></div>\n";
    	} else {
    		echo "<div align=\"center\"><span class=\"smaller\">" . $heading . "</span></div>\n";

    Change them to

    		echo "<div align=\"center\"><span class=\"normal\"><strong>" . $headingnobirthdaystoday . ".</strong></span></div>\n";
    	} else {
    		echo "<div align=\"center\"><span class=\"normal\"><strong>" . $heading . "</strong></span></div>\n";

    should do it in each of the scripts.

    Roger

  13. Thanks Roger, that worked to bold the text. Is it possible to underline it?

  14. Never mind about the underlining the text, I figured it out.

  15. My website is set up where you have to log in to see any living person and their information. I am using your birthdays, anniversaries and deaths scripts and based on my settings, it does not show anything under any of those categories if the person is still living. Is it possible to list the person as “Living Smith” etc so that it shows that there is a birth, anniversary or death on that particular day, but in order to see the information, you have to log in. If that is possible, what code needs to be changed?

  16. Roger,

    I am using your scrips on my home page and I love them. I have noticed one problem with the “TNG Top 10 Surnames” script. When I view my home page in Interent Explorer, there is no problem. But if I look at my home page in Chrome or Safari, that particular script shows numbers in the margins before the surnames. I have looked at the code and cannot see where or how to turn those numbers off. Can you help?

    Thanks,

    J.R.

  17. Roger,

    I changed the cellpadding in your script to 10, which brings the numbers over inside the cell, so it doesn’t look bad in Chrome and Safari anymore, but I still wonder why the numbers show up in those two browsers, when in IE they are not present.

    Anyway, I am happy with the scripts because they give me useful info to display in space that wasn’t being used.

    Thanks!

  18. I would like to know. is there a plugin/widget for the birthday list for wordpress (using TNG v9)

    thanks in advance!

  19. There is no WordPress Widget for these things, but you can maybe/probably put the php code of one of these add ons into a PHP Text Widget and get it working.

    I don’t have an example of such a thing on this site though. My Genealogy is a .php page coded up to include a number of these Add-Ons to pull data from the TNG database.

  20. @Roger

    Thanks! one question. will i have to place all the code that’s inside list_birthdays.php? or do i take only some parts? because nothing didnt appear once i placed all the php code that’s inside list_birthdays.php

    thanks :)

  21. i also tried uploading into: userscripts/ the 2 php files

    and i placed this script into wordpress widget php area:

    i got this error:

    Error: TNG is not communicating with your database. Please check your database settings and try again.

  22. OK – I think I’ve figured this out. The following “seems” to work in the body of the PHP Widget

    <?php
    $path = get_option('mbtng_path');
    chdir ($path);
    include ("userscripts/list_birthdays.php");
    ?><br /><br >

     

    Actually it doesn’t quite work as it is – the links to the people are missing the Genealogy page part of the URL, but it should be easy enough to edit the list_birthdays.php file to include that in to the URL.

    Roger

  23. Reference 27 Apr 2011 – Set Cemetery Page with all Cemeteries Open TNG 8.1.2 – 67 downloads WIll this download work with TNG 9.10 Appreciate your help. Thanks Peter.

  24. Yes, it works up to and including TNG 9.1.1. I’ve amended the Notes to reflect this.

  25. Set Cemetery Page with all Cemeteries Open TNG 8.1.2 – Many thanks it worked great. Peter

  26. The “mbtng path” change from above worked on both list_birthdays and list_deaths. However, when I put them both in the WordPress sidebar at the same time, the second one listed fails with this: Error: TNG is not communicating with your database. Please check your database settings and try again…

    I can change the order and it is always the one that comes second that fails.

    Any ideas?

  27. Instead of putting each list in a separate PHP Widget, just put however many you want into a single PHP Widget – so

    <?php
    $path = get_option('mbtng_path');
    chdir ($path);
    include ("userscripts/list_birthdays.php");
    ?><br /><br >
    <?php include ("userscripts/list_anniversaries.php");
    ?><br /><br >
    <?php include ("userscripts/list_deaths.php");
    mbtng_close_tng_table ();
    ?><br /><br >

     

    Should do it. The mbtng_close_tng_table () is needed to get the WordPress database reselected for any further Widgets to access the correct database.

  28. Hi Roger

    I’ve just downloaded your captcha mod and obtained the Google key but I have obviously misread the instructions as my Contact Us page now comes up as a blank. I’ve removed the recaptchalib.php file from the site from can’t find TNG_captcha.php. Can you advise on this please?
    Site: http://www.learnsource.com.au

    Thanks

    Cathie

  29. Not to worry. I found it and have deleted so all looks good again.

    Cathie

  30. On the birthdays it also shows people that are no longer living(dead). how can it show only living people’s birthdays?!

  31. Is you site set to show Living people to everyone? If so, then the script could be changed to show those people’s birthdays, but if your site is set to not show living people, then showing their birthdays requires more changes.

  32. @Roger
    Thanks :) i found out.

    i added this line:

    if($row['living'])
  33. re: Site Map Mod – where is the robots.txt file? All I see is tngrobots.php in my root directory. Using tng v.9.2. Thanks.

  34. If the robots.txt file exists it will be in the root folder of the site. If it doesn’t exist then you would need to create it. Do a Google search for robots.txt to find out how to create and use one.

  35. Bonjour Roger,

    Je télécharge le dossier “create_sitemap_v9.0.0″.
    J’essaie de le décompresser soit sur mon disque local soir chez mon hébergeur.
    A chaque fois message d’erreur ” impossible: l’archive est endommagée ou son format est inconnu”

    que faire?

    une astuce???
    serge

  36. Thanks for letting me know. I don’t know what went wrong, but I’ve replaced the .zip file and it should download correctly now.

    Roger

  37. Bonjour,

    Ok, j’ai refait la manipulation et…………ça marche!!!!

    Merci encore

  38. Hi

    I’ve been using this mod for years with no problems. But suddenly:

    Writing media pages to the file…
    7000 |
    Writing file (final)…Cannot open /tngsitemap1.xml

    Do you have any suggestions for this issue?

    Trond

  39. Make sure the file tngsitemap1.xml exists already and has write permissions set for it.

  40. Stumbled accross your problem with Snow Leopard and HP LaserJet 4MP. I am still using OSX.5.8

    My printer refuses to talk to my MacBook pro and my iMac. I have tried to find the driver on HPs

    web site without any luck. Can you help out. Like you I have several unused cartidges.

    Kind regards. Len F L

  41. Hi Roger,

    I tried to download the create a google sitemap config file, but I receive a Error 404 page does not exist,

    Is the file still available for download??

    Kind regards,
    Cor

  42. I’ve got the same issue. Installed the mod without any problems. Uploaded the tngsitemap1.xml to (various and) the right location(s), but when hitting the ‘export sitemap’ button I get this message:

    Writing file (final)…Cannot open /etc/apache2/htdocs/tngsitemap1.xml

    I think it’s trying to write to a wrong directory and it has something to do with the $htmlhost, but I don’t know how to fix that.

    Have you got any advise Roger?

  43. Does the file already exist? If not, you could try creating an empty text file with that name and at least 666 permissions and see if the script will run then to write the file.

  44. Sorry for the long delay here – I hadn’t received notification that there were any comments waiting…

    I think this should not be an issue now?

  45. Sorry for the long delay replying here – hadn’t got notification from the blog that there were any comments waiting…

    The driver is built in to Mac OS X – you should be able to find it in the Printers System Preferences – go to Add a Printer and then you can choose HP as the maker and search for 4MP as the model – it should find it.

  46. I allready uploaded the files to the right locations and changed permissions to 777 and 666, but I’m still receiving the same message.

  47. By the way, I’m running TNG v.9.2.2
