Purpose of the mod
|TNG version:||≤ 11.1.2|
This mod will change the way media are shown on the getPerson page. Media with a title or description will be shown first on a one per row basis. Then all media having neither a title nor a description will be shown on one line (or more lines if they don't fit on one line).
Note that the Compact Person Media mod is not compatible with the Mobile Site Enhancements mod. You must install the Compact Person Media - Mobile version after the Mobile Site Enhancements mod.

Updated for TNG v10, TNG v10.1, and TNG V11 by Ken Roy
- A working TNG installation.
- A backup of all affected files (see the list in the summary in the upper right corner of the page)
- An installed current version of the Mod Manager (is already included in TNG v9)
- Download the appropriate zip file as shown in the summary in the upper right corner of the page. NOTE that I host these zip files on my own server. That way I can count the number of downloads for each mod I made and estimate the relevance of such mod.
- Extract the config file from the downloaded zip file into the mods folder.
- Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the mod.
- Thumbnails of media without title and description are shown on one line on the getPerson page.
- Optionally the mod can hide titles and/or descriptions causing some or all media to be shown on one line.
Settings / Usage
Default TNG without Compact Person Media behaviour
- each thumbnail on a seperate line
Default Compact Person Media behaviour
- each thumbnail with a title and/or description on a seperate line
- all thumbnails without title and description next to each other on a single line (or multiple lines if too many to fit on one line)
If you want images with a title but without a description to be placed on the single line too you have to open the parameters screen (edit button on the mod manager page) and set the "Hide titles" option to true.
If you want images without a title but with a description to be placed on the single line too you have to open the parameters screen (edit button on the mod manager page) and set the "Hide descriptions" option to true.
If you want images with a title and/or a description to be placed on the single line too you have to open the parameters screen (edit button on the mod manager page) and set both the "Hide titles" and the "Hide descriptions" options to true.
In all these cases the default TNG behaviour when hovering a thumbnail will be kept:
- show a preview of the image
- show a tooltip with the title (if there is one)
The only difference is that the preview will appear at the left of the thumbnail when there is not enough space to show it on the right, and that it will not appear if there is not enough space on both sides.
Visualization of this mod
The following images show the visual effects of installing the mod. The examples have only been tested with template 3, but should work on any template.
The first example shows the effect on photos associated with a persons burial event. Note that in this case there is no photo with a description.
The second example shows the effect on photos in the media section of a persons page. In this case there is a photo with a description. As you can see it has been placed above the photos without description.
When images come too close to the right side of the browser there won't be place enough to show the preview. Version 22.214.171.124 solves this by showing the preview on the left side.
In the event of a problem
- Try using the Mod Manager Remove capability.
- Open an issue in the TNG Community Forums* Copy the backup of the affected files back to your TNG directory.

|v184.108.40.206||2 October 2012||
|v220.127.116.11||2 October 2012|| This version fixes (another) layout bug which made the "one line" jump partially out of the table when the event didn't have a date and place.|
Warning: This will be the last version of the mod for TNG versions lower than 9.0.4
|v18.104.22.168||21 September 2012|| When the utmost right image in a row comes too close to the border of your browser the preview is not (completely) visible anymore. This version fixes this partially by showing the preview on the left side in those cases.|
Warning: When the distance between the left border of the browser and the scrollbar (or border) on the right is less than 865 pixels, for at least one image there won't be enough place to show the preview on the left side either. In those cases the preview simply doesn't show. Once TNG uses jQuery I'll try to solve that too.
Warning: In some browsers when you hold your mouse over the first pixel on the left of some images the preview starts flickering. I couldn't find a solution for that, but again I hope jQuery will (help me) solve this.
