TNG 13.0
Place Edit No Checkbox
Summary Removes the "Make changes to place name in existing events" checkbox at the bottom of the Edit Place form, because that checkbox allows users to change a place name and then not propagate the change to the various Placename fields in the People, Families, Cemeteries, and other tables.

Purpose of the Mod

Avoids possible database contamination by removing the "Make changes to place name in existing events" checkbox at the bottom of the Edit Place form. That checkbox allows users to change a place name and then not propagate the change to the various Placename fields in the People, Families, Cemeteries, and other tables.

Compatibility with other Mods

This mod is compatible with these other mods that I've written: Place Edit-Cemeteries, Admin Places Geocode, and Placename Format. It is also compatible with Google maps 15, the only other mod that changes admin_editplace.php.
