Notes


Purpose of the Mod

This mod provides additional information in the Cemetery selection list so that the user (actually, an administrator) can see whether, for example, there is a fully-configured place associated with a cemetery. It

  1. Adds the Associated Place Name, along with that place's geocode data and tree name, to the list of selection results.
  2. Adds the Cemetery notes to the list of selection results.
  3. Adds "Results per page", and a "Hide notes column" checkbox to the search form.

Note that the Cemetery location and the associated Place name are almost the same, but come from different database tables.

  1. The Cemetery location is the Cemetery Name, the city, the county, the state, and the country from the Cemeteries table.
  2. The Cemetery place is the place name that is expected to be stored in the burial place field of People records.

Requirements

  • A working TNG installation.
  • An installed current version of the Mod Manager.
  • The only other mod that target admin_cemeteries is my [Cemetery Edit] mod, which can be installed (or not) independently.

Visualization of this Mod

BEFORE: An unmodified list of cemeteries from TNGv9.2.2 or TNG10.1.
Cemetery admin list-before.png
AFTER: Cemetery search form an list as modified, showing both Place and Notes. I can now tell at a glance that the first two cemeteries on the page are not fully configured with an associated Place.


Also note the new "Results per page" field and "Hide notes" checkbox. In each browser session, the Results per page value is initialized to the system-wide "Max Search Results" parameter from the General Settings/Miscellaneous screen. The value you enter only affects this screen, and is retained in a session cookie like the search string. Since cemetery notes can be fairly verbose, and can wind up scrunching the other fields, the user can use the "Hide Notes" checkbox (also retained in a session cookie) to suppress the Notes column.

Another AFTER view: Here's the modified list with the Notes column suppressed.
