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

To improve the usability of the All Burial table in showmap.php, which is essentially the TNG "Cemetery Detail" report.

  • The following columns have been added:
    1. Birth date and place
    2. Death date and place, and
    3. Spouses - The Spouses column is added because women's maiden names are often omitted from headstones and cemetery lists.
    4. A flag indicating that the person has a headstone photo. The headstone photo column is removed if no one in the cemetery has a headstone photo.
  • The burial date column is no longer displayed if it contains no data.
  • The PersonID and Burial place columns have been removed, and the Burial Place, which applied to all burials in the table is shown just above the All Burials table.

Compatibility with other Mods

  • This mod is compatible with
    1. Headstones Report, and used to contain some of the functionality that is now in Headstones Report. With mod v14, Burials-More Details focuses on the All Burials table in showmap.php, and Headstones Report focuses on the essentially-identical headstones tables in headstones.php and showmap.php.
    2. Tree ID Mod, which Ken Roy kindly updated largely to establish compatibility with some of my mods.
    3. (and coordinated with) TreeID-One Column, which is essentially a variant of Tree ID Mod that keeps the TreeID and Tree Name in a single column.
  • This mod Conflicts with
    1. Showmap Burials, which was also inspired largely by the redundant Burial Place column in showmap.php, but which doesn't add as much new information as Burials-More Detail does. There's no meaningful resolution to this conflict.

The All Burials tables in showmap.php - BEFORE


The All Burials Table in showmap.php - AFTER
  • Note the four new columns - headstone photo indicator, birth date and place, death date and place, and Spouse(s).
  • The burial place name is no longer shown in the All Burials table. Instead, it is in the heading above the table.
  • Also note that the Burial column and the Tree column are absent from this particular example.
    • The Burial Place is always omitted, since they would all be the same.
    • The Burial Date is omitted in this case because it contained no data.
    • The Tree column is now suppressed if the user has selected a specific tree, or if the database contains only one tree.
    • The Headstone photo indicator column is omitted if no headstone photos are tied to people in this cemetery.

A "Private" spouse, and a "Living" person are shown in the report, to illustrate that the report does enforce those privacy considerations.

Revision History

      • The latest version of the mod is at the top of this table ***
Mod Version TNG Version Date Note 12.0+ 15 May 2018 No functional changes; made compatible with TNGv12. 11.0-11.1.2+ 20 Dec 2017 No visible changes. Removed a phantom line in the .cfg file that must have been an extra cr or lf, and caused a bad target error after installation on some sites. 11.0+ 20 Dec 2017 One visible change:
  1. A new column of headstone markers in the All Burials table that indicate which people have headstone photos.

Two bug/glitch fixes: - Fixed a bug in the spouse logic in the All Burials table that occurred when no tree is selected and multiple trees exist, and the same person ID appears in two trees. - Realized that there was potential confusion when the cemetery name&location didn't match the associated placename, so I changed the All Burials heading. Plus some code cleanup. 11.0+ 3 Jul 2017 The Display Mod Names mod is no longer referenced at all, since showmap.php is an end-user program (though it can be invoked from the Admin side.) 11.0+ 30 May 2017 Moved the changes to Headstones.php out of this mod to the new Headstones Report mod. This mod now focuses on the All Burials table in showmap.php, and Headstones Report focuses on the Headstone Photos tables in headstones.php and showmap.php. (Those two headstones tables are essentially identical. 11.0 & 11.0.1 27 May 2016 Added the %fileoptional:% directive to the Norwegian language files. 11.0 & 11.0.1 26 May 2016 Several modifications:
  1. Accommodates the tablesaw specifications in TNGv11
  2. Changes the layout of the list of cemeteries in headstones.php. Cemeteries with headstones are now in a titlebox, and all cemetery pins in the list are cut off so that there is not too much whitespace.
  3. Added "Matches x though y of z" like many other list programs.
  4. Added bold text and more info to the message in showmap.php about a missing value for the Cemetery place.
  5. The mod is no longer compatible with Headstones-No Headstones, which may be completely obsolete now. & 9.2.0-10.1.3 27 Feb 2016 The burial date column is omitted if it contains no data. Removed a cust_text string that was not necessary, and added one that had been hard-coded. Added Norwegian translations. Added Show Mod Names functionality and dependency. 10.1.0-10.1.2 19 Jul 2015 Tweaked search locations to accommodate the TNG v10.1.2 beta. & 9.2.0 - 10.1.1 17 Apr 2015 Found an untranslated string; added Dutch translations by Marco van den heuvel & 9.2.0 - 10.1.1 12 Apr 2015 Fixed bug where my modification to headstones.php tried to count burials in the people table when the cemetery didn't link to a place name. 10.1 11 Jan 2015 Fixed database references for TNG v10.1 compatibility. No functional changes. 9.2.0 - 10.0.3 17 Dec 2014 No functional changes. Reconfigured one of the target locations to avoid a conflict with either a manual edit or an unknown mod. 9.2.0 - 10.0.3 29 Nov 2014 No functional changes. Fixed an HTML error that most web browsers ignored. 9.2.0 - 10.0.3 29 Nov 2014 The date columns (instead of place columns) are forced not to wrap. Also added the number of burials in the headstones.php cemetery list, and a cleaned up the modified PHP code a good bit. 9.2.0 - 10.0.2 12 May 2014 No functional changes; just code cleanup. 9.2.0 - 10.0.1 15 Mar 2014 Initial release.
