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.


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.

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

There is a conflict with Submit Photo Tab Mod because both of them try to occupy the same space on the tab bar. Whichever one is loaded first wins. Modifying them to work together would probably crowd the tab bar and cause it to break. Links to FGW can be placed elsewhere on the site or added to a drop down menu -- see Custom Drop Down Menu for one method of doing so.
