In TNGv12 and beyond, this mod uses the new guidelines for TNG v12+ cust_text.php files
If you are using TNGv12+, and any cust_text.php file in this mod is marked with a Bad Target error, you need to update your cust_text.php files before you can install this mod. [Show instructions]

If you upgraded to TNGv12+, and did not update your cust_text.php files as instructed in the upgrade readme script, then you must use the TNG Mod Manager to update them. To do so:

  1. Go to Mod Manager, and select its "Recommended Updates" tab.
    (If the "Recommended Updates" tab is not visible, then go to the Mod Manager Options tab, select "Display Settings", and turn on the "Recommended Updates" tab.)
  2. Click the "Update" button in the "Recommended Updates" tab.
    Installed mods do not interfere with the update, and if you already have (or think you may have) run this update, it will not hurt for you to run it again.

Introduction

TNG version: 8.0

This mod provides a backup and restore of the Private flags that can be set in the tng_peoples table starting with TNG V8.

It is designed to be used as a backup before doing an import gedcom and then used to restore the manually set private flags that were dropped during the import process.

In TNG V9, the French custom text files can now be downloaded as separate add-ons.

Developer

This mod was developed by Ken Roy using a scan and replace on Ben Wagner's Backup / Restore Living Flag


Requirements

  • A working TNG installation.
  • A backup of your TNG admin_main.php and admin_leftbanner.php files.
  • A TNG database that contains Private flags (do not attempt to use this mod if you do not have any Private flags set in your database)


Automated Installation

  1. Download the appropriate zip file from the Mod Summary in the upper right hand corner
  2. After downloading the zip file, unzip it into your mods folder
  3. Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the private_flag_backup.cfg.

Upgrade to new version

  1. Remove the existing private_flag_backup.cfg
  2. Install the new version of the mod using the Automated Install procedure

Revision History

Version Date Contents
V12.0.0.2 1 May 2019 updated for TNG V12 to fix PHP 7.2 warnings and to use the new cust_text.php anchor string

Our thanks to Rick Hooley for reporting the problems with the v12.0.0.1 version of the mod that was removed and for beta testing this new version

V11.0.0.0 15 March 2016 updated for TNG 11 Admin screen changes
V10.1.0.2 9 January 2015 updated for TNG 10.1 for MySQLi calls and for new Mod Manager syntax rules.
V10.0.0.0 2 January 2014 updated for TNG 10
V9.0.0.1 6 January 2013 updated to remove the include("config.php") since it was causing a blank page if a function was defined in customconfig.php.

V8.1.0 24 May 2010 initial release of the admin_backupPrivate.php for TNG V8

Custom Text Additions

Note that config file only includes the English language changes, so if you support multiple languages you will need to modify the config file to add the custom text for those other languages.


English

The following custom text will be added to your English/cust_text.php and English-UTF8/cust_text.php files by this mod. If you are using other languages, you must add these lines to each of your language cust_text.php files with appropriate translations of course.


// Backup / Restore Private Flags Mod
$admtext['backupprivate'] = "Backup Private";
$admtext['backupprivateitems'] = "Backup/Restore Private Flags";

// Backup / Restore Private Flags Mod
$admtext['backupprivate'] = "Sauvegarder privé";
$admtext['backupprivateitems'] = "Sauvegarder/restaurer les étiquettes privées";
$admtext['privatebkuprestoraction'] = "Pour sauvegarder ou restaurer les étiquettes privées, cliquez sur l'icône d'action appropriée.";
$admtext['privateinbackup'] = "Privé dans le dossier";
$admtext['privateindatabase'] = "Privé dans la base de données";
$admtext['privateconfirm'] = "Êtes-vous sûr de vouloir écrire la liste courante des privées au disque ?";

$admtext['privatebackupinfo'] = "L'information dans le dossier de sauvegarde";
$admtext['privatedatabaseinfo'] = "L'information dans la base de données";
$admtext['privatechanged'] = "Changé";
$admtext['privatenochange'] = "Il y a probable aucun changement d'information";

$admtext['privatecorrupt'] = "ou le dossier est corrompu.";
$admtext['privatenotfound'] = "Pas trouvé dans la base de données";

Note that for TNG V8 and above and after, the $text variables are within single-quotes, and the English/cust_text.php changes were provided for both the languages/English/cust_text.php and languages/English-UTF8/cust_text.php files.
