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.

Purpose of the Mod

Controls the amount of Source and Citation Details displayed in the Sources section of the Person Profile. It starts with just a list of source names. Buttons let you show all of the citation details and/or all of the source details. One-letter hyperlinks let you see or hide details for one source or one citation.

Mod Parameters

There is one mod parameter: $authorModParam. Its update screen reads like this:

If you're getting your data via Gedcom from's Family Tree Maker (FTM), a LOT of your source authors are inaccurately set to "". This parameter tell the program how to deal with those authors. Enter:

  1. To treat "" like other authors; i.e. always display it,
  2. To treat it as a source detail; i.e. initially hidden,
  3. To ignore it. (The default)

Regroup Person Profile has removed the left-hand column that holds the label "Sources", and has put "Citation Sources" in a heading above the block.

It is pure coincidence that the number of sources in this record fills the box without scrolling.

When you first click on the TNG Print button, the Sources box show just the Source ID, Title, and Author. But the pretty-print sources box is not constrained; it shows all of the information you select.
