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.
Version 9.x.0.3 features in response to a question by Sam Clark. Thanks to Sam and to Jerry Liebowitz for extensive testing and to Ken Roy and Martin Pannier for translations.

Mobile enhanced version provided by Ken Roy for TNG V10.1 and V11

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, Reset location markers on unhide and Scroll event map section to to your liking. More on these options in the next two paragraphs.
  8. Don't forget to press the Save button.
  9. If the mod doesn't behave as expected, please clear your browser's cache as a first measure:
    1. Log out of your TNG website
    2. Clear your browser's cache
    3. Close and reopen your browser
    4. Log in into your TNG website


Features

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

  • Start with expanded event map section
  • Allow to toggle the visibility

The next paragraph will give a detailed description of the effect of these parameters especially in conjunction with other TNG settings.

  • 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.

  • Scroll event map section to

If the getperson page is higher than the browser viewport this option will define the page's behavior: scroll to the top of the event map section, or the bottom or center it in the viewport.

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


Detailed Behavior Description

This paragraph will describe the effect of several of the Map Settings options on the behavior of the getperson page, not only the ones added by the mod itself but also the TNG options. It has become quite extensive as there are many possible combinations. To limit the width of the table I've given each option a number (see below).

Another aspect that has been overly discussed on and off the mailing list is the impact on bandwidth. To tackle this I have done some tests. Using the Firefox addin HttpFox I have recorded the list of files and the amount of data fetched from the web server each time I refresh a certain page on my TNG website. The details on the recorded information are in this excel file (zipped). The numbers marked in red are the ones that are related to the Event Map section. I have summed them in the excel file and you can also find them in the table below. Remember that these are not absolute figures, they will vary for each website and each getperson page, even for each browser brand. It's the relationship between them that matters most. Or like it was mostly formulated on the mailing list: is the map loaded or not?

Note 1: I have only recorded this information for the getperson page. That explains why there's not always a number mentioned.
Note 2: Depending on the settings a different part of genstyle.css is fetched. That's why I have decided to add this file to the list of Event Map section related files.
Note 3: This tests where done without caching. With caching on the amounts of data fetched should be (far) lower as many of the files can be perfectly cached.

Option Number Added by
Enable Maps 1 TNG
Hide Admin Maps to Start 2 TNG
Hide Public Maps to Start 3 TNG
Start with expanded section 4 MOD
Allow to toggle the visibility 5 MOD

An empty cell means that the setting doesn't matter for the described effect.

Behavior of other public pages (cemeteries, ...)

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 several new options have been added.

With the mod installed
The Event Map section collapsed

This is how the Event Map section of the getperson page might look like (depending on your settings of course). As you can see there is an image in front of the Click to display link to draw a little more attention.

The display image
The Event Map section expanded

Here the Event Map section is already expanded. You can see that the Click to hide link has its own image.

The hide image

The following images show the effect of the Scroll event map section to option. To make this screenshots I resized my browser so that the viewport is smaller than the page, but larger than the Event Map section. Then I've scrolled to the bottom of the page. This I consider the starting point which you can see in the first image (the Collapsed column). Then I've set the mods settings to:

  • Hide Public Maps to Start: No
  • Start with expanded section: No
  • Allow to toggle the visibility: Yes

Each image shows the effect after clicking the Click to display link (see also image The Event Map section collapsed above).

Collapsed Top Middle Bottom Browser default
Event Map section collapsed, page scrolled down to the bottom Event Map section expanded, page scrolled to section top Event Map section expanded, section vertically centered in viewport Event Map section expanded, page scrolled to section bottom Event Map section expanded, no scrolling
This is my starting point: the Event Map section is collapsed   Note that if the viewport is not high enough to accomodate for the Event Map section + a 10 pixel wide border around it, the section will not be centered (it just didn't look good) but scrolled to the top of the section.   This is the behavior when the mod doesn't do any scrolling. This behavior is browser dependent, although most browsers behave the same.
