I want to upgrade my site (TNG v9.1.1) sometime after the summer and have set up a local test-v10.1.1 site. But as I want to keep all the functionality from all my hard-coded modifications, I have to write mods for v10.1.1.
Some of my mods may very well do the same things, or nearly, as other mods already posted.
I'm not posting these mods to compete or compare or claim anything but as I'm writing them and they are tested, why not post them here?
My mods work exactly as I want them to and I know that they don't have conflicts with eachother, and that's why I prefer them before other mods, even if they do exactly the same thing.
If you like a mod that's great, if not; that's fine too.
As I said: I'm not competing - just writing what I need and posting for anyone to use, modify or discard.
As i only have a local TNG v10 site, I can't show a live example of some of the mods. If you install one: Please add the URL to the Sites using this mod list at that page. Thank you.
(I link to my v9.1.1 site where the hard-coded versions can be seen)
Purpose of the mod
To show the number of Ancestors and Descendants (up to 100 of each) below the person's name in getperson.php.
The max 100 is a limit I put there after measuring the time it took on the live server.
If I remember correctly, it took like 0.2 seconds to count to around 1,000 people.
You can change the limit to whatever you want, using the ModManager's built-in Edit Options.
What the mod doesn't do properly
In the cases where TNG would generate two identical branches, f.ex. cousins who get children, the mod counts both branches.
This mod was developed by Erik Hoppe
- A working TNG installation.
- A backup of all affected files (see the list below)
- An installed current version of the Mod Manager (is already included in TNG v10.1.1)
- Click on the download link, shown in the summary in the upper right corner of the page.
- Un-zip the file.
- Move/copy/FTP the un-zipped .cfg file to the mods folder of your TNG system.
- Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the mod.
- After installation you can edit the counter limit that defaults to 100.
In the event of a problem
- Try using the Mod Manager Remove capability
- Replace all affected files with the copies you made before the installation.
