Purpose of the mod

This Mod allows a user to create a Branch showing their ancestors and then to have those Ancestors' names made bold on their parents' getperson.php pages.


This mod was developed by Roger Moffat


  • A working TNG V11 installation.
  • An installed current version of the Mod Manager.

Automated Installation

  2. Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install Bold Ancestor Child Links

Setup Required

This Mod works from a Branch set up on your site that contains your (direct only) Ancestors. The Branch must use the BranchID "Ancestors". To set this up:

1 - Create a Branch with the BranchID = Ancestors. You can give it whatever Description you want to appear on the affected peoples' page - e.g. "My Ancestors". Use your ID for the ID number. Set the Generations for Ancestors and Descendants as shown - Ancestors 20 Generations (or some number to include all generations in your tree), Descendant generations from each ancestor = 0, Descendants 0 and Uncheck "Include spouses for all descendants, and click the "Save" button

2 - Click on Add Labels

3 - Add the Label to the affected people - click the Add Labels Button
