This is a companion mod to the Family Group Worksheet V9 add-on. It places tabs at the top of TNG personal and family pages to open a Worksheet pre-populated with data from the source page.

NEW! Starting with FGW_tabs version, you must first install the Genlib Tab mod which modifies TNG to allow multiple tabs to be added to the page without conflict.


Download, unpack and copy the file to the mods folder and install it with Mod Manager. There are three options that can be set using the Edit button located under the Remove button in the FGW Tabs section.

1) If you install the fgw folder somewhere other than the extensions folder, you must set the correct path to fgw.php from the TNG root directory.

2) Determine where the worksheet will open -- in the same window or in a new one.

3) Indicate whether tabs will be shown to all visitors, or only to registered users. This should be consistent with the way you've configured access to the worksheet itself.


To upgrade, first remove and delete the older version of FGW Tabs Mod and then the Genlib Tab mod (if installed) in that order using the TNG Mod Manager. Download and install the most recent version of Genlib Tab, then download and install the newest version of FGW Tabs Mod.

Caution: The Genlib Tab mod allows more than one mod to install additional tabs -- if you are using a tab installed by another mod (e.g., Submit Photo Tab Mod), make sure your current version of that mod and the new Genlib Tab will be compatible. You may have to upgrade the other mod(s) for everything to work together.

Tab Labels

A word about tab labels. There is no way to anticipate what everybody might want for tab labels in all languages. The default label is "Worksheet" in English. If you want something different, you can add the following to your cust_text.php files: $text['my_worksheet'] = "Whatever You Want"; Doing this in cust_text.php rather than modifying scripts or FGW language files will ensure that they are not lost after an upgrade.

Known Conflicts

When used in conjunction with Genlib Tab (required) there are no known conflicts.
