TNG menus

TNG is a run by menus and it is obvious(?) what most do. Plus TNG has very good built in help. This article just summarises the menus and shows you where they are.

1. The front screen menu

When you start TNG from within Kilkie.org you are shown this screen:

tng main menu

Search: Let's you search for family members.
Surnames: Find someone by their name.
Login: You need to login before you can use any of the TNG features.
Register: You need to register before you login. This is different from the login to the main website.
Whats new: The most recent changed individuals, new photos etc.
Most wanted: Here you can add questions or photos you are looking for help to find out about.
Places: This is a list of all the places linked to our family tree.
Notes: There are MANY notes attached to individuals to make them more interesting.
Dates: Arranges the tree in date order or lets you search for events on a particular date
Calendar: Shows a calendar with birthdays etc.

Administration: Gets you to the admin menu (see later).

2. The top menu

Wherever you are in TNG there is a menu at the top of the screen that takes you back to the rest of our site but under that is a thin menu giving you quick access to most things you want to do:

top menu

Notice the three menus: Find, Media and Info - these give drop down lists that let you do everything without having to go back to the main menu. Also notice that Home and Search are  always there too.

3. The Admin menu

admin menu

Almost everybody gets this menu too. We might decide that youngsters can look but not change things etc but at present all users can add and change things by default. The admin menu lets you add new people familes and media quicker than going through the main menu. If you get lost remember the home button.
