Purpose of the mod

This mod will add options to the Map Settings dialog to fine tune the showing of the map on the person pages.


Developer

This mod was developed by Bart 'Roebie' Degryse

Idea by Cyndi Wiseman in response to a question by Mitch Gariador. Version 9.x.0.1 features in response to a question by Roger Mitchell.


Requirements

  • A working TNG installation.
  • A backup of all affected files (see the list in the summary in the upper right corner of the page)
  • An installed current version of the Mod Manager (is already included in TNG v9)


Installation

  1. Download the appropriate zip file as shown in the summary in the upper right corner of the page. NOTE that I host these zip files on my own server. That way I can count the number of downloads for each mod I made and estimate the relevance of such mod.
  2. Extract all the files from the downloaded zip file (1 cfg file and 2 images) into the mods folder.
  3. Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the mod.
  4. Go to Admin >> Setup >> Configuration >> Map Settings.
  5. Make sure Enable Maps is set to Yes
  6. Also make sure to set Hide Public Maps to Start to No
  7. Next set the three new options Show the map on the person page, Allow to toggle the visibility and Reset location markers on unhide to your liking. More on these options in the next paragraph.
  8. Finally don't forget to press the Save button.


Features

The latest version of this mod adds tree options to the Map Settings dialog.

  • Show the map on the person page
  • Allow to toggle the visibility

While these should be self explanatory here's a summary of their interaction anyway:

Show the map on the person page Allow to toggle the visibility Result
Yes No (Default) This is the default behavior of TNG without this mod installed.
Yes Yes The map is still visible but there's an extra link to hide the map.
No Yes The map is not visible when opening the page, but there is a link to open the map.
No No No map and no link to open it. This is the behavior the first version added.
  • Reset location markers on unhide

When you open the page the map will show a given region. Now suppose you scroll the map to show another region. Now hide the map, next unhide the map. The map will still show the latest region. Setting this option to Yes, forces the map to reload when you unhide it, making it show the former region again.

  • There is also an image just before the Click to display/hide link to draw a bit of attention


Other Languages

Those who use other languages in addition to English can find appropriate mods to add Dutch, French or Spanish custom text additions in the summary in the upper right corner of this page. Follow the same procedure as explained above to install them.

Note that these language mods are only for the 9.0.0.0 version of the mod. New ones will come soon!


Visualization of this mod

The following images show the visual effects of installing the mod.

Without the mod installed

This is how the Admin >> Setup >> Configuration >> Map Settings page looks in the default TNG 9 template 3 layout.

Without the mod installed
With the mod installed

Once you have this mod installed this is how that same page will look like. As you can see a new option has been added.

With the mod installed
With the latest version installed

Once you have the 9.x.0.2 version of this mod installed this is how that same page will look like. As you can see two more options have been added.

With the latest version installed
The event map section with the map closed

Once you have the 9.x.0.2 version of this mod installed this is how the event map section of the getperson page will look like. As you can see there is an image in front of the Click to display link.

The display image
The event map section with the map opened

Once you have the 9.x.0.2 version of this mod installed this is how the event map section of the getperson page will look like. As you can see there is an image in front of the Click to hide link.
