Introduction

This mod adjusts the Image display and image preview for different screen widths

Note that this mod requires that you use v10.1.0.3 of the Mobile Site Enhancements mod since some of the code in this mod was previously in the Mobile Site Enhancements mod

Note the slide show suppression code was moved to the Mobile Site No Slideshow

Developer

This mod was developed by Ken Roy with some code provided by Darrin Lythgoe that will be part of the upgrade after TNG 10.1.1.

Thanks to Roger Moffat, Graham Chamberlain, and Del Groves for testing.

The slide show suppression code was moved to Mobile Site No Slideshow v10.1.0.3 and v10.1.1.3 were used for beta testing only.

Requirements

  • a working TNG installation
  • an installed current version of the Mod Manager
  • a backup of the getperson.php file
  • must be using the latest TNG templates/templateN/footer.php that includes setting the $flags['basicfooter'] = true; before calling the tng_footer function

Automated Installation

  1. Download the appropriate mod for your TNG version and desktop genealogy program from the download links in the status area in the upper right.
  2. Extract the appropriate zip file to your TNG mods folder.
  3. Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the appropriate mod for your desktop genealogy program.

Known Problems

If you are not using the latest versions of the TNG footer.php modules, then the Image Preview will not be displayed since the jQuery script that calls the showPreview function in net.js is added to the page footer by the tng_basicfooter function in the tng_footer function of genlib.php.

to resolve this problem update your template footer to include setting the $flags['basicfooter'] before the tng_footer function call
$flags['basicfooter'] = true;
echo tng_footer($flags);
