Caution This page has not been maintained in a long time and several of the mods listed are obsolete because they became part of TNG. Do not depend on the information on this page since it is not be accurate Caution


Since so many of the TNG Mods impact the Individual page display, the following table was created

  • to show all the different TNG mods that make changes to the getperson.php module, and
  • to show the inter-dependencies of some of the mods.

Note that a couple of the mods are in other TNG modules but still change or impact the Individual page display. The Notes column identifies the module that is changed.
