Notes


Introduction

Inspired by Linking_To_Find_A_Grave but not inspired enough to individually add all the links by hand, I wanted an easier way to add Find A Grave external media links to burial events. Since I was already adding Find A Grave Source/Citations to individuals, I focused on using the burial citations to automatically add the Find A Grave links. Since the introduction of this mod, it has been expanded to include BillionGraves records as well. This mod does the following:

  • Adds a custom 'Find A Grave' media type if it does not already exist
  • Adds a custom 'Billion Graves' media type if it does not already exist
  • For each website ('findagrave.com' and 'billiongraves.com')
    • Searches through all the burial events looking for Source/Citations that contain the webite address (i.e., 'findagrave.com' or 'billiongraves.com'). This can be in the Source or the Citation and is not case sensitive.
    • For each of those found, look for a Memorial/Record number in the burial Citation. If found, go to the website, get the page, and extract the title. Then either add or update the media with the information and make sure it is linked to the person's burial event.

To use this mod, go to 'Administration', then 'Import/Export', then 'Secondary Processes' tab and finally click the 'Burial Website Media Import' button.

Source / Citations Requirements

  1. The Source/Citation must be attached to a Burial.
  2. The Source or Citation must include the keywords 'findagrave.com' or 'billiongraves.com'. The following fields are examined:
    1. Source Long Title
    2. Source Short Title
    3. Source Publisher
    4. Source Actual Text
    5. Source Call Number
    6. plus the citation fields below
  3. The Citation must included a recognized Memorial or Record Number. The following fields are examined:
    1. Citation Page
    2. Citation Actual Text
    3. Citation Note
    4. Citation Description

Recognized Memorial or Record Numbers

The Memorial numbers recognized automatically in the Citation can take the following forms:

  1. GRid=<digits> // as found in old Find A Grave URLs
  2. /memorial/<digits> // as found in new Find A Grave URLs
  3. /record/<chars>/<digits> // as found in old BillionGraves URLs
  4. /grave/<chars>/<digits> // as found in new BillionGraves URLs
  5. Memorial <number> <digits> // all case insensitive with zero or more spaces between the parts
  6. Record <number> <digits> // all case insensitive with zero or more spaces between the parts

where:

  • <digits> = one or more numbers 0 to 9. This is assumed to be the Find A Grave memorial number or the BillionGraves record number.
  • <number> = #, number, nummber, nr, nr., nbr, nbr., no, no., or blank/nothing/empty. Case Insensitive.
  • <chars> = one or more characters 'a' to 'z', 'A' to 'Z', and/or '-' (dash) with no spaces

Examples of recognized Memorial Numbers:

www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=122620107
www.findagrave.com/memorial/122620107
billiongraves.com/pages/record/number/122620107
Memorial #122620107
Memorial 122620107
Memorial No. 122620107 
memorial     no.     122620107
MeMoRiAl#122620107
record    122620107
Record   Nbr 122620107
ReCoRd   Number122620107

and remember, either in the Source or in the Citation the keyword 'findagrave.com' or 'billiongraves.com' (case insensitive) needs to be found. Examples include:

Findagrave.com
FindAGrave.com
www.BILLIONGRAVES.com
www.billiongraves.com
www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=122620107
billiongraves.com/pages/record/number/122620107

NOTE: Simply having the URL to a specific Find-A-Grave Memorial or BillionGraves Record in one of the Citation fields (e.g., Page or Note) will satisfy all the criteria for detection.

Requirements

  • A working TNG installation. This mod was initially tested on TNG Versions 9.2.2 and 10.0.3.
  • An installed current version of the Mod Manager.

Automated Installation

For TNG V9 and above

TNG version: 9.0
  1. Download the appropriate zip file from the Mod Summary in the upper right hand corner
  2. After downloading the zip file, unzip it into your mods folder
  3. Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the living_flag_backup.cfg.

Upgrade to new version

  1. In the Mod Manager, uninstall the Mod
  2. Install the new version of the mod using the Automated Install procedure

Visual of mod

Example lists of the new media imported by the mod. Note the use of the Collection name to narrow down the list of media displayed. Burial Website Media Import Burial Website Media Import

Customization

Note The items below already have the default values shown included in the mod. No changes are automatically made to English/cust_text.php or English-UTF8/cust_text.php. But if you want to make changes to the behavior of the mod or to the language, you can manually add these to your customconfig.php file or if you prefer, your language/<language>/cust_text.php file. You only need to add entries that you want to change.

Note If you made customizations before v9.0.4, you will need to update. The base variable has changed from $text to $BWMI_mod to avoid collisions with other parts of TNG.

Customization Examples

To make these changes, just add the statements to your customconfig.php file:

Small Icons

This will change the mod to only use the small icons for Find A Grave and Billion Graves.

If you have already run the mod in the past, you will need to delete both media types first so the mod will add them back in with the correct image file.

// Mod: Burial Website Media Import
$BWMI_mod['web']['FAG']['type_thumb']     = 'findagrave_small.png';
$BWMI_mod['web']['BG' ]['type_thumb']     = 'billiongraves_small.png';

Changing the Media Title

By default the media title is set to the title of the webpage referenced. To change this, use the $BWMI_mod['web']['x' ]['title_template'] and $BWMI_mod['web']['x' ]['title_no_year'] settings.

Setting $BWMI_mod['web']['x' ]['title_no_year'] = 1 will remove the '(yyyy - yyyy)' from the title. It also works for '[yyyy - yyyy]'.

For $BWMI_mod['web']['x' ]['title_template'], the following symbols are used:

  •  %T% - the generic title for the website as set in $BWMI_mod['web'][x]['title']
  •  %n% - for the Name of the person extracted from the website title (not always perfect, works for Findagrave)
  •  %y% - for birth and death year extracted from the website title (not always perfect, works for Findagrave)
  •  %t% - for displaying the title from the website with the tagline removed (i.e., %f% with %e% removed)
  •  %e% - for displaying the 'extra' data matching the tagline.
  •  %f% - for the full title from the website
  •  %N% - for Name of person in TNG
  •  %Y% - birth and death years of person in TNG

Any other words or characters in $BWMI_mod['web']['x' ]['title_template'] remain.

// Mod: Burial Website Media Import
$BWMI_mod['web']['FAG']['title_no_year']     = 1;
$BWMI_mod['web']['FAG']['title_template']     = "%T% - %n% (%Y%)";

The above will set the media title to show the generic website Title, a '-', the name from the website, and the years from TNG in ().

WARNING: Using %N% and %Y% makes the ASSUMPTION that the person being referenced on the website is the same person on which the citation is located.

If you have citations that reference other individuals, then you will get strange results. So use with caution.

Using Dutch Sites instead of Find A Grave and Billion Graves

This will enable the 'graftombe.nl' and 'online-begraafplaatsen.nl' websites (both of which are already defined in the mod).

For both of these websites, it will change the event to be searched to the Death field (instead of the Burial field).

Finally, the Find A Grave and Billion Graves websites are disabled.

// Mod: Burial Website Media Import
$BWMI_mod['web']['GTNL']['enable']  = 1;        // Enable 'graftombe.nl'
$BWMI_mod['web']['GTNL']['event']   = 'death';  // Look in Death field for citations for this website
$BWMI_mod['web']['BGPNL']['enable'] = 1;        // Enable 'online-begraafplaatsen.nl'
$BWMI_mod['web']['BGPNL']['event']  = 'death';  // Look in Death field for citations for this website
$BWMI_mod['web']['FAG']['enable']   = 0;        // Disable 'Find A Grave'
$BWMI_mod['web']['BG']['enable']    = 0;        // Diable 'Billion Graves'

In the event of a problem with your TNG site

  1. Try using the Mod Manager to remove the mod
  2. copy your backup admin_secondmenu.php and admin_secondary.php files

Removal of the media is a manual process. But it is not too difficult. For example, to remove the 'Find A Grave' media:

  1. In administration, go to Media
  2. Set the Collection to 'Find A Grave'
  3. You can now click 'Select All' followed by 'Delete Selected' to remove the new media. Repeat for each page of 'Find A Grave' media.
  4. To remove the 'Find A Grave' media type, simply click on 'Delete' once you set the Collection to 'Find A Grave'

Revision History

Version Date Contents
V9.0.0.10 21 Jan 2018
  • Change to new URL format for Find A Grave. This includes adding "/memorial/" in the match_url. Old URLs in source citations continue to work but will use the new Find A Grave format.
  • Expanded the search for existing media by matching IDs for media and burial citations instead of just the media URL. This allows for updating older links even if the URL structure changes.

burial_website_media_import_v9.0.0.10.zip

V9.0.0.9 12 Feb 2017
  • ignore changes in case and in http/https when checking if a media event at that URL exists.

burial_website_media_import_v9.0.0.9.zip

V9.0.0.8 11 Feb 2017
  • When just doing updates (i.e., $BWMI_mod['update'] = 0), only print out results of added entries. This reduces the displayed clutter.
  • Allow mod to follow website redirection
  • Print error information when having trouble getting a URL
  • Changed default Find-A-Grave to be https instead of http

burial_website_media_import_v9.0.0.8.zip

V9.0.0.7 09 Jan 2016
  • Various updates to accomodate BillionGraves updated website. Including updated default $BWMI_mod['web']['BG']['match_url'], $BWMI_mod['web']['BG']['url'], and $BWMI_mod['web']['BG']['tagline'].
  • Added $BWMI_mod['web']['x']['match_name'] for better name extraction from each site's title

burial_website_media_import_v9.0.0.7.zip

V9.0.0.6 28 June 2015
  • Added $BWMI_mod['update']. If 1 (default), it will update all entries. If 0, it will skip getting updated information from websites for existing citations. It will only do new citations.
  • Added $BWMI_mod['refresh']. If 0 (default), behaves as before. If provided number x>0, it will do an automatic "refresh" of the page after every x burial website inquiries.
  • Restructured code to accommodate the $BWMI_mod['refresh']. Makes use of TNG's "saveimport" table to hold data, so the process can be resumed.

burial_website_media_import_v9.0.0.6.zip

V9.0.0.5 11 January 2015
  • minor mod formatting fixes to conform to the new mod standards
  • fixed one more mysql_ statement
  • changed $BWMI_mod['web']['x']['tagline'] to be a regular expression to match more complicated web site taglines
  • added dash to $BWMI_mod['web']['BG']['match_url']

burial_website_media_import_v9.0.0.5.zip

V9.0.0.4 02 November 2014
  • Fixed problem with using $text['BWMI_web'] multi-dimentional arrays by changing $text[] to $BWMI_mod[] to hold all mod settings.
  • To help with "What's New", only set media changedate upon creation.
  • Added tng_ versons of mysql_ to be compatible with TNG 10.1.0 as well as backwards compatible.
  • Added %wikipage% in cfg file for TNG 10.1.0
  • Updated mod description and added link to the TNG Wiki mod page.
  • Minor tweaks on the Dutch 'match_record' entries (removed ID references)
  • Added option to delete years like '(yyyy - yyyy)' from the link title. $BWMI_mod['web']['x']['title_no_year']='1';
  • Added definition of website tag line (i.e., the extra stuff on the title, like name of the website) $BWMI_mod['web']['x']['tagline'] = '- Find A Grave Memorial';
  • Added option to change the title used in the link. $BWMI_mod['web']['x']['title_template'] can be used to define the title.
 %f% = full title from web (default),
 %t% = title from website without the tagline set by $BWMI_mod['web']['x']['tagline'],
 %T% = generic title set by $BWMI_mod['web']['x']['title'],
 %n% = name from website title after the tagline and years removed
 %y% = birth - death years from website title,
 %N% = name from TNG (women's married names appended to surname in order of marriage),
 %Y% = birth - death years from TNG
 The default is $BWMI_mod['web']['x']['title_template'] = "%f%", the full title from the website.
 EXAMPLE: $BWMI_mod['web']['FAG']['title_template'] = "%T% - %n% (%Y%)"  will show the generic Title, the name from the website, and the years  from TNG
 WARNING: Using %N% and %Y% makes the ASSUMPTION that  the person being referenced on the website is the same person on which  the citation is located.
 If you have citations that reference other individuals, then you will get strange results.  So use with caution.
