In TNGv12 and beyond, this mod uses the new guidelines for TNG v12+ cust_text.php files
If you are using TNGv12+, and any cust_text.php file in this mod is marked with a Bad Target error, you need to update your cust_text.php files before you can install this mod. [Show instructions]

If you upgraded to TNGv12+, and did not update your cust_text.php files as instructed in the upgrade readme script, then you must use the TNG Mod Manager to update them. To do so:

  1. Go to Mod Manager, and select its "Recommended Updates" tab.
    (If the "Recommended Updates" tab is not visible, then go to the Mod Manager Options tab, select "Display Settings", and turn on the "Recommended Updates" tab.)
  2. Click the "Update" button in the "Recommended Updates" tab.
    Installed mods do not interfere with the update, and if you already have (or think you may have) run this update, it will not hurt for you to run it again.

Purpose of the Mod

Adds a list of deleted records to the cryptic confirmation message generated by by admin_deleteselected.php, which is used by numerous Admin programs to delete records from their database tables. The programs that use admin_deleteselected.php include admin_branches.php, admin_cemeteries.php, admin_families.php, admin_notelist.php, admin_people.php, admin_places.php, admin_repostories.php, admin_reviewusers.php, admin_sources.php, admin_timelineevents.php, and admin_users.php

This mod does not changes those admin programs themselves; it changes only the action script that they use to delete records.
