This mod can be used independently of the other mods in the Regroup Person family.

Purpose of the Mod

Make the Person Profile a little more succinct by suppressing the display of the parent/child relations such as 'natural' that can ordinarily be assumed.

Mod Options

A mod option lets TNG admins define a set of relation values such as "natural" & "birth", and/or those values in other lanuagues.

Mod Conflicts

There are so many small mods that affect the Person Profile that I haven't tested them all against this mod. But this is a small mod, and I haven't seen any conflicts yet. It is definitely compatible with other mods in the Regroup Person* family. If you encounter a conflict and want this functionality, please send me a screen shot of the Mod Manager page showing the locations that conflict.

Related Mods

  • Inner Mod Menus v2+, which displays an "Inner Mod Menu" in the TNG "inner menu" (just below the tab menu). Inner Mod Menus are visible only to administrators. The Inner Mod Menu is defined by this mod but is visible only if Inner Mod Menus is installed. Inner Mod Menus is not required but I highly recommend it.
  • Show Mod Names, which displays information saved by this mod. But Show Mod Names is not required.
  • The "Regroup Person" family of mods that were written by Robin Richmond and that affect the Person Profile. All of these mods can be installed independently of the other mods in the family.

The "Regroup Person" family of mods:

  1. Regroup Person Profile - The daddy in the family (and my first mod). It rearranges the data in the Person Profile, and adds features (some optional) such as siblings. more easy-to-read recordIDs relative's data, and the ability to control the formatting of dates and places.
  2. Regroup Person-Branch Members - Makes each of the profiled person's branch names a hyperlink to a list of branch members, and, in some cases, to a list of branch members.
  3. Regroup Person-Child2Parent (this mod) - Hides "natural" or "birth" relationships between the person and the parents.
  4. Regroup Person-Date Place - Combines event date, place, and description into one table cell, and coordinates with Regroup Person Profile to share an Inner Menu button that affects white space in the Person Profile.
  5. Regroup Person-Family Indicators - Based on Jeff Robison's Family Indicators mod, this mod adds flags to parents & spouses that (1) pop-up a preview of both parents and that link to an ancestor chart, and adds flags to children and spouses that list the number of marriages that person had, and that link to a descendant chart.
  6. Regroup Person-Hide Branches - Hides branch names from end-users.
  7. Regroup Person-Move Media - Moves the media files above the map
  8. Regroup Person-No Living Data - Suppresses display of ANY data about a living or private person the user doesn't have rights to. By default, TNG will show some data, plus spouses, parents, and children.
  9. Regroup Person-Sources - Allows source and citation data to be hidden for brevity, but displayed as desired.

This mod is packaged with the typical mod subfolder that has the same name as the mod's base filename. But the folder does not contain any files that are installed by the mod. It contains the mod's language strings, in files under the subfolder languages/. That is, this mod does not copy its language strings into the standard cust_text.php files. Instead, the programs installed or modified by the mod load the strings directly from the language files in the mod subfolder. Read more about this technique

The Inner Mod Menu

This illustrates the Inner Mod Menu in the Person Profile, on a site where four mods that define Inner Mod Menus have been installed. The Regroup Person-Child2Parent entry in the menu contains

  1. A link to the TNG Wiki article (through the Wiki logo)
  2. A link to the "Mod Options" section of that Wiki article
  3. A link that pops up a brief description of what the mod did to the page. That popup is shown in the screenshot
The Mod Settings Block

This mod's options are in a new subform named "Robin's Mods" at Admin>>Setup>>General Settings, along with mod other mod options block. When you link directly to the mod options block (e.g. from the Inner Mod Menu or the Mod Manager "Edit Options" page), the subform opens automatically, and only the targeted mod settings block opens. Then, if you click on the triangular arrow next to the subform label, the rest of the mod options block will be shown.
