Jump to: navigation, search

The following mods are regressed by TNG V8.1.0 upgrade from TNG V8.0.2.

  • I would recommend that if you are using the Template Settings - Multi-language Mod that you
    • Remove it prior to doing the upgrade.
    • Backup the templateconfig.php files you previously created in your languages folders. The new mod uses cust_tmplvars.php
    • Be prepared to update the contents of the templateconfig.php using the new Template Settings from the contents from the templateconfig.php from your primary language folder
  • If you do not uninstall the mods prior to installing TNG V8.0.2, some of the mods will be completely regressed but others will only be partially regressed. Partially removed mods are shown as requires Cleanup after installing the TNG 8.1.0 upgrade in the list below.
  • You will need to use the Mod Manager Clean Up to remove the mod from the other TNG scripts that were not replaced by TNG V8.1.0.
  • Re-install the mod after the upgrade, unless a new version is indicated in the list below


Note that the ancestor map placelevel will show cleanup after you cleanup the Ancestor map. It will not Clean up since it modifies a file that was removed when you clean up the Ancestor map mod. However it will be OK to install after you re-install the Ancestor Map mod.
- requires a new version of the mod after installing the TNG 8.1.0 upgrade
- Updated version is submit_photo_tab_V8.1.5.zip.


The following mod still requires rework in TNG V8.1.0:

Other mods may be impacted but those were the ones regressed on my site or identified by other TNG users

Action Required

This mod was reworked for TNG V8.1. See the compatibility considerations and changes indicated for TNG V8.1 in Template Settings - Multi-language Mod. Template Settings - V8.1 Fixes was created as another mod to replace the hard-coded text and images in templates 4, 5, 6, and 8. This second mod can be installed without installing the multi-languag mod and once installed, should either be Deleted or the warnings ignored because the Mod Manager will flag the entries as requiring Clean Up as soon as you update any of the new values added to the Template Settings --Ken Roy 12:37, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
