Mods eliminated by TNG V12

You should use the Mod Manager to uninstall all your mods prior to the upgrade. If you are not going to uninstall all TNG mods prior to the upgrade, you may end up having to replace some TNG modules that contained mods that were not replaced in the upgrade since the Mod Manager changed the way it handled source that contains terminating blanks or tabs.

The following mods are now incorporated or partially incorporated into TNG v12

5. DNA: Jeff Robison's DNA mod has been incorporated. This provides several significant enhancements to the previous method of tracking DNA tests.
IMPORTANT! Note: You should also delete this mod from your site before upgrading to avoid confusion. If you do not delete before, please Delete it immediately after you upgrade. DO NOT attempt to Clean Up this mod on TNG v12

11. First Names: New pages contributed by Adrian Oates show first names along the same lines as the current Surnames and the First Name aka Forenames Mod pages.
The new feature is similar to the Mod, but does not provide the First & Middle Names Pages(however, the content of the Forenames mod 'Top 50' page seems incorrect), nor Middle Name Pages(but the Mod displays only those that aren't also First Names). While the Mod works in TNG v12, it will result in a duplicated 'First Name' entry in the Show drop down menu.
20. Media: The thumbnails on person and family pages may now be displayed on a single row (if more than one exists). Configurable from the General Settings.
while the mod might not be completely implemented in TNG v12. The mod installs but does not work and will be marked as obsolete because:
  • TNG provides 2 different alternatives to handle not showing all the thumbnails
    • Hide personal media that collapses the media to a single row added in TNG v10
    • Show photos on one row added in TNG v12
  • The mod developer is no longer active on TNG
The functionality of the above Mod Manager mods was included in the Mod Manager 12 upgrade
44. Places: The "places subject to deletion" mod has been incorporated.
IMPORTANT! Note: You should also delete this mod from your site before upgrading to avoid confusion. If you do not delete before, please Delete it immediately after you upgrade. DO NOT attempt to Clean Up this mod on TNG v12

48. Search: Branch names will be displayed with the tree name in search results (where applicable).
51. Security: The nocaptcha reCaptcha mod has been incorporated into the standard code.
  • Note that the mod implementation requires that you implement the recaptcha keys
  • You should be able to install other Captcha Mod to replace the TNG default implementation after you rename the TNG_captcha.php module
Using other mod impact
59. Surname Cloud: The Surname Cloud will now be restricted to a user's assigned tree (if applicable).
IMPORTANT! Note: You should also delete this mod from your site before upgrading to avoid confusion. If you do not delete before, please Delete it immediately after you upgrade. DO NOT uninstall this mod on TNG v12. Note that you may have to update the Mod Manager Option to allow you to delete installed mods without uninstalling them.

Mods that need rework or will not install

Based on TNG v12 changes and beta testing, the following mods no longer work. Some may require rework or have been reworked.

while the mod appears to install after doing a clean up, the mod no longer works since it depended on Template Settings that are no longer in the templateconfig.php
IMPORTANT. If you want this mod to work on TNG v12, you need to copy the templateconfig.php file to a backup location before you removed your mods and then copy it back to the location of your configuration files (TNG root folder or you Config Path folder) before you do the DB upgrade step so the templateconfig.php changes will get converted to the TNG Templates (tng_templates) table
Note that this mod will not work for template 16-18 since there is not a way to modify the tng_templates table
no longer works because TNG v12 moved the template settings to the tng_templates table instead of the templateconfig.php

Note:these mods have status Cannot Install or Partially Installed

Needs to be reworked because Places Subject to Deletion was incorporated into TNG v12
Note that the TNG11 mod installs, once you have renamed the TNG_Captcha.php script included with TNG v12 which uses NoCaptcha Captcha or reCaptcha V2.
This will be true of any other Captcha Mods since TNG v12 includes the files for the NoCaptcha Recaptcha
Some of the previous targets in getperson.php in the DNA Tests section are now in a new target file - dna_test_results_lib.php and so show Bad Target
You need a new version of this mod. If you want to test it please contact Ken Roy.
The new version will not be posted to the TNG Wiki until TNG v12 becomes generally available.

Note:mod that install but needs chgs to work.
