Purpose of the mod

This mod changes the indicator used to show that a child has descendants from a > (greater than) sign to a + (plus) sign, which to some is more intuitive indicator that the child has children.


Developer

This mod was developed by Chuck Filteau.

Extended to include the Family Group Sheet and the Admin Edit Person pages, based on Warren S Gilbert's recommendations by Ken Roy.


Requirements

  • A working TNG installation. The automated installation release was initially tested at TNG Version 7.1.1 and may apply to previous versions of TNG. Note that the getperson.php file was last changed in TNG 7.0.3. Line numbers in the manual installation instructions may be different for versions prior to TNG 7.0.3
  • A backup of your getperson.php, familygroup.php, and admin/editperson.php files.
  • An installed current version of the Mod Manager.
