$array = $log->getEntries(string $name, array $options = []);

  • dateTo (int|string): Newest date to match entries.
  • reverse (bool): Reverse order (default=true)
  • pageNum (int): Pagination number 1 or above (default=0 which means auto-detect)

“We chose ProcessWire because of its excellent architecture, modular extensibility and the internal API. The CMS offers the necessary flexibility and performance for such a complex website like superbude.de. ProcessWire offers options that are only available for larger systems, such as Drupal, and allows a much slimmer development process.” —xport communication GmbH
