If you use the Secret Notes for Admin, you must update to a newer version of that mod.


This mod was developed to make it easier to know that the Notes section has the secret flag set and is not displayed to users who

  • do not have the Allow to view information for private individuals privilege as a TNG user or
  • are not Administrators if the Secret Notes for Admin mod is installed

This mod replaces the Notes row heading with Private Notes. This mod does not add the Private Notes label to notes that are part of events where TNG currently does not display a label. If you use Private notes associated to events, you will need to add the Private indicator within the note itself.


Ken Roy developed this mod.


This mod adds the word Private to the Notes row label on the Individual (getperson) page and the Family Group Sheet. It simply replaces the Notes row label with a Private Notes row label. It does not add any new labels to the getperson.php or familygroup.php pages.


  • A working TNG installation.
  • A backup of your TNG getperson.php file
  • A backup of your TNG personlib.php file
  • A backup of your TNG familygroup.php file
  • A backup of your TNG reglib.php file


This mod conflicts with the v9.0.0.1 version of the Secret Notes for Admin and requires that you update the mod to the v11.0.0.2 of that mod to eliminate the conflict.
