Public_Access_Control mod for TNG v10
Restrict_Access_mod by Graham Chamberlain
Author of TNG Colouring Book
Mods by me: At my user page.


This is the second mod of two for restricting access to several functions and data on our site.
It is meant to be used together with AccessRestriction mod and will probably be quite useless if not. But there are no dependancies between them.
They are written as two separate mods for the only reason that they do so very different things.

As I only have a local TNG v10.1.1 site, I can't show a live example of the v10 mods.
My live 9.1.1 site has the functionality of the mod hard-coded in a much more complicated way - making it dangerous to try to remove it. But display-wise it is the same as this.

Therefore: If you install one of these mods:
Please add the URL to the Sites using this mod list on success, or report any errors. Thank you.
(I link to my v9.1.1 site where the hard-coded versions can be seen)


Purpose of the mod

The mod will hide the following Tabs from not logged in visitors:

  • The Relationship tab
  • The Timeline tab
  • The GEDCOM tab
  • The Suggest tab

The mod will also hide the following Tab selections from not logged in visitors:

  • The Ancestors tab:
    • Ahnentafel
    • Media
    • PDF
  • The Descendants tab:
    • Register
    • PDF

The mod will also hide the Share, Print and Bookmark icons when the visitor is not logged in.

Finally: If a logged in user has Edit rights, both the Edit and the Suggest tabs will be displayed.

There is at our site, a help-page [1] for Tabs.
It shows which tabs and what functions are avaliable to All, Logged in and Guest visitors.
Simply click a tab to "read" - it's only in Swedish but as you know your TNG you should be able to follow ... most of it.
