I have been using TNG for about a decade for my St. John Genealogy and DNA project. It has allowed me to publish my research in real time and attract fellow researchers and potential DNA testers to my project. When I built my website I couldn't get passed my third great-grandfather. After launching my site, St. John cousins around the world found me and shared their branches with me. It allowed the website to grow into a global electronic archive for our surname. My lineage is now back to the 10th century with primary records and DNA evidence.
A few years ago, Darrin added DNA features that allowed me to integrate DNA data from my project. I finally had a single place to manage hundreds of kits. It is amazing.
Darrin has always responded to my emails in a quick, kind and professional manner. Even if you don't know HTML or PHP you can follow Darrin's easy to follow instructions to set up your site and run it as is. You can also learn HTML, PHP and SQL at W3School or ask questions in his forum if you want to customize the site but don't know how.
You can add custom fields, create custom reports, and display amazing family presentation charts.
I have probably tried every single genealogy program and TNG is the absolute best. It is compatible with Wordpress content management software but I prefer Joomla over Wordpress and there is no premade tools for Joomla so that's the only negative thing I can think of but even that's easily worked around.
If you do genealogy research, you should try TNG!
In summary, I would recommend The Next Generation (TNG) of Genealogy Sitebuilding to a friend.
