Construction This mod is in a beta testing state. I've been using it for a while, but
  • It needs to be tested on other TNG sites,
  • I haven't completed the description below, and
  • I haven't created the visualizations this article needs

In truth, I have over 40 new and updated mods in this state, and I'd appreciate whatever help that anyone can offer. So it would be great if you could download the mod, test it, and let me know how it works for you. And if you're up for it, screenshots from before the mod was installed and after (annotated or not) would be a great help. You're welcome to insert in the article, or just email them to me. My email username is 'mail, and my email domain is robinrichmond.com.

Thanks in advance. Robin Richmond 19:45, 2 April 2017 (CDT)

Purpose of the Mod

Affects the list of cemeteries in headstones.php, and the Headstone Photos Table in headstones.php and showmap.php. In both programs, it

  • Provides a mod parameter to control the display of the Headstone Photos table.

In headstones.php, it:

  • Formats the list of cemeteries differently,
  • Adds the burial count (and possibly a show/hide Headstones button) for each cemetery,
  • Removes Headstone Photos column headings if there are no photos to display.</li>
  • Displays "a to b of c items" before the page navigation widgets for both Cemeteries and Headstones.
  • Provides a mod parameter to change the number of Cemeteries displayed on the page.

This mod is primarily, but not exclusively, for sites that don't track headstones


  • In headstones.php - $headstonesButtonControl provides options that let you
    1. Never display the headstones table.
    2. Hide it behind a button.
    3. Show it, with a button that would hide it.
    4. Always show it, without a button
  • Also in headstones.php - $cemeteriesPerPage determines how many cemeteries will be listed on one screen (one web page). The "pristine" TNG code only provides for 5 cemeteries, but that value is driven by the likelihood that each cemetery will include headstone listings. If you don't track (or don't display) headstone records, then you can raise that value considerably.
  1. In showmap.php - $headstonesTableParam does the same thing for showmap.php that the $headstonesButtonControl parameter does for headstones.php.
