    @elabx Don't give up. It also took me a long time to work on ModulesManager 2 because of client work and other stuff. Then I have taken some time just for developing the module and saying "not today" to clients, because I need to finish this important thing that I am developing. I wanted to have a base so others can give feedback and submit PR's to help me with the module. But that's only an option if you plan to release it as Open Source. I hope you find the time to work on this again.

    Process Cache Control This module provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions. The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu: Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Clear the ProCache page render cache (if your site is using ProCache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides: An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README. Plans for improvements If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind: Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions! Links https://github.com/MoritzLost/ProcessCacheControl ProcessCacheControl in the Module directory CHANGELOG in the repository Screenshots

    You might reach a point where table level locks kill (some of) the speed improvements of caching if you are using MyISAM as the database engine. In that case, switching to InnoDB might speed things up, though you'll lose a small bit of that in insert/update performance itself. I have a site with about the same number of cache entries that runs fine (using InnoDB). When the row count gets noticeably larger, using Memcached (or any other in-memory key-value storage) gives marked performance improvements, but that is of course only possible if you can run the necessary daemon software on the server.

    Hi @Jens Martsch - dotnetic Almost a year later and still in the same situation, @joshuag jumped ship on this project and I'm full of client work 😩. I know it looks awesome but I it's still far from being good enough for release 😕 I seriously get the impostor syndrom when I see all the awesome users we all know, releasing amazing modules every now and then with such amazing quality, how do you guys do it?! Need to level up 😥

    No, it's not in the directory. You should really take a look at @netcarver's awesome: https://pwgeeks.com/ - just type "cache" in there and you'll find some other cache related tools. Thanks for the rundown of differences - that will be really helpful.

    Hi @adrian, I didn't know that module existed, it's not in the directory, is it? Because I looked if something like this already existed and didn't find anything. Might've saved me some trouble 😅 That said, I had a quick look, here's what I found in comparing both modules: ClearCacheAdmin exposes more options through the setup page, so there are available to everyone, whereas ProcessCacheControl has it's options in the module configuration, so they are only available to the developer. ClearCacheAdmin has multiple links (and multiple options) on the process page, giving the user more fine control, whereas ProcessCacheControl goes for a simpler interface and bundles all those actions into one (configurable) action with a single button. ProcessCacheControl can delete $cache entries without an expiry date, which ClearCacheAdmin doesn't as far as I can tell. ProcessCacheControl also lets you configure caches to be deleted by namespace, whereas ClearCacheAdmin offers each cache entry to be deleted individually (I think this has mostly to do with the module being a bit older, I believe $cache didn't have all those options back then). The largest difference is my concept of "cache actions", which ClearCacheAdmin doesn't have. I'm not sure how useful that will actually be yet. I think if I can expand on the actions available by default, it will be pretty handy. With ProcessCacheControl, you can add custom cache actions / profiles through the API, that may be useful depending on the use case. Adding to that, ProcessCacheControl has permission checks on a per-action basis. ProcessCacheControl can be modified and executed through the API. In particular, you can modify the default action and execute any action programmatically.

    Hey folks! Took a couple of late nights, but managed to turn this old gist of mine into a proper module. The name is SearchEngine, and currently it provides support for indexing page contents (into a hidden textarea field created automatically), and also includes a helper feature ("Finder") for querying said contents. No fancy features like stemming here yet, but something along those lines might be added later if it seems useful (and if I find a decent implementation to integrate). Though the API and selector engine make it really easy to create site search pages, I pretty much always end up duplicating the same features from site to site. Also – since it takes a bit of extra time – it's tempting to skip over some accessibility related things, and leave features like text highlighting out. Overall I think it makes sense to bundle all that into a module, which can then be reused over and over again 🙂 Note: markup generation is not yet built into the module, which is why the examples below use PageArray::render() method to produce a simple list of results. This will be added later on, as a part of the same module or a separate Markup module. There's also no fancy JS API or anything like that (yet). This is an early release, so be kind – I got the find feature working last night (or perhaps this morning), and some final tweaks and updates were made just an hour ago 😅 GitHub repository: https://github.com/teppokoivula/SearchEngine Modules directory: https://modules.processwire.com/modules/search-engine/ Demo: https://wireframe-framework.com/search/ Usage Install SearchEngine module. Note: the module will automatically create an index field install time, so be sure to define a custom field (via site config) before installation if you don't want it to be called "search_index". You can change the field name later as well, but you'll have to update the "index_field" option in site config or module settings (in Admin) after renaming it. Add the site search index field to templates you want to make searchable. Use selectors to query values in site search index. Note: you can use any operator for your selectors, you will likely find the '=' and '%=' operators most useful here. You can read more about selector operators from ProcessWire's documentation. Options By default the module will create a search index field called 'search_index' and store values from Page fields title, headline, summary, and body to said index field when a page is saved. You can modify this behaviour (field name and/or indexed page fields) either via the Module config screen in the PocessWire Admin, or by defining $config->SearchEngine array in your site config file or other applicable location: $config->SearchEngine = [ 'index_field' => 'search_index', 'indexed_fields' => [ 'title', 'headline', 'summary', 'body', ], 'prefixes' => [ 'link' => 'link:', ], 'find_args' => [ 'limit' => 25, 'sort' => 'sort', 'operator' => '%=', 'query_param' => null, 'selector_extra' => '', ], ]; You can access the search index field just like any other ProcessWire field with selectors: if ($q = $sanitizer->selectorValue($input->get->q)) { $results = $pages->find('search_index%=' . $query_string . ', limit=25'); echo $results->render(); echo $results->renderPager(); } Alternatively you can delegate the find operation to the SearchEngine module as well: $query = $modules->get('SearchEngine')->find($input->get->q); echo $query->resultsString; // alias for $query->results->render() echo $query->pager; // alias for $query->results->renderPager() Requirements ProcessWire >= 3.0.112 PHP >= 7.1.0 Note: later versions of the module may require Composer, or alternatively some additional features may require installing via Composer. This is still under consideration – so far there's nothing here that would really depend on it, but advanced features like stemming most likely would. Installing It's the usual thing: download or clone the SearchEngine directory into your /site/modules/ directory and install via Admin. Alternatively you can install SearchEngine with Composer by executing composer require teppokoivula/search-engine in your site directory.

    This module is (yet another) way for implementing a cookie management solution. Of course there are several other possibilities: - https://processwire.com/talk/topic/22920-klaro-cookie-consent-manager/ - https://github.com/webmanufaktur/CookieManagementBanner - https://github.com/johannesdachsel/cookiemonster - https://www.oiljs.org/ - ... and so on ... In this module you can configure which kind of cookie categories you want to manage: You can also enable the support for respecting the Do-Not-Track (DNT) header to don't annoy users, who already decided for all their browsing experience. Currently there are four possible cookie groups: - Necessary (always enabled) - Statistics - Marketing - External Media All groups can be renamed, so feel free to use other cookie group names. I just haven't found a way to implement a "repeater like" field as configurable module field ... When you want to load specific scripts ( like Google Analytics, Google Maps, ...) only after the user's content to this specific category of cookies, just use the following script syntax: <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="statistics" data-src="/path/to/your/statistic/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing" data-src="/path/to/your/mareketing/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="external_media" data-src="/path/to/your/external-media/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing">console.log("Inline scripts are also working!");</script> The type has to be "optin" to get recognized by PrivacyWire, the data-attributes are giving hints, how the script shall be loaded, if the data-category is within the cookie consents of the user. These scripts are loaded asynchronously after the user made the decision. If you want to give the users the possibility to change their consent, you can use the following Textformatter: [[privacywire-choose-cookies]] It's planned to add also other Textformatters to opt-out of specific cookie groups or delete the whole consent cookie. You can also add a custom link to output the banner again with a link / button with following class: <a href="#" class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</a> <button class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</button> This module is still in development, but we already use it on several production websites. You find it here: PrivacyWire Git Repo Download as .zip I would love to hear your feedback 🙂 CHANGELOG 0.0.6 CSS-Debugging for hiding unused buttons, added ProCache support for the JavaScript tag 0.0.5 Multi-language support included completely (also in TextFormatter). Added possibility to async load other assets (e.g. <img type="optin" data-category="marketing" data-src="https://via.placeholder.com/300x300">) 0.0.4 Added possibility to add an imprint link to the banner 0.0.3 Multi-language support for module config (still in development) 0.0.2 First release 0.0.1 Early development

    I'm currently building a Fieldtype/Inputfield for selecting date and time ranges (eg for events). There was quite some interest in this thread, so I thought I start a dedicated discussion... Background: I guess everybody of us knows the problem: You want to present events on your website and you start with a new template and a title and body field... For events you'll also need a date, so you add a datetime field called "eventdate". Maybe the event does not take place on a specific day but on multiple days, so you need a second field... Ok, you rename the first field to "date_from" and add a second field called "date_to". So far, so good. Then you want to list your events on the frontend. Simple thanks to the pw API, you might think. But you realize that it's not THAT simple... Which events take place on a specific day? What would the selector be? Yeah, it's not that complicated... it would be something like: $from = strtotime("2020-01-01"); $to = strtotime("2020-02-01"); $events = $pages->find("template=event, date_from<$to, date_to>$from"); Why? See this example, where the first vertical line represents the $to variable and the second is $from: The start of the event must be left of $to and the end must be right of $from 🙂 Ok, not that complicated... but wait... what if the date range of the event (or whatever) was not from 2020-01-18 to 2020-02-25 but from 18 TO 25 (backwards)? The selector would be wrong in that case. And did you realize the wrong operator in the selector? We used date_to>$from, which would mean that an event starting on 2020-01-01 would NOT be found! The correct selector would be >=$from. That's just an example of how many little problems can arise in those szenarios and you quickly realize that the more you get into it, the more complicated it gets... Next, you might want to have full day events. What to do? Adding a checkbox for that could be a solution, but at the latest now the problems really begin: If the checkbox is checked, the user should not input times, but only dates! That's not possible with the internal datetime field - or at least you would have to do quite some javascript coding. So you add 2 other fields: time_from and time_to. You configure your date fields to only hold the date portion of the timestamp and show the time inputfields only if the "fullday" checkbox is not checked. We now have 5 fields to handle a seemingly simple task of storing an event date. That's not only taking up a lot of space in the page editor, you'll also have to refactor all your selectors that you might already have had in place until now! Idea So the idea of this module is to make all that tedious task of adding fields, thinking about the correct selectors etc. obsolete and have one single field that takes care of it and makes it easy to query for events in a given timeframe. The GUI is Google-Calendar inspired (I'm acutally right now liking the detail that the second time input comes in front of the date input). I went ahead and just adopted that: Next steps I'm now starting to build the FINDING part of the module and I'm not sure what is the best way yet. Options I'm thinking of are: // timestamps $from = strtotime("2020-01-01"); $to = strtotime("2020-02-01")+1; // last second of january // option 1 $pages->find("template=event, eventdate.isInRange=$from|$to"); $pages->find("template=event, eventdate.isOnDay=$from"); $pages->find("template=event, eventdate.isInMonth=$from"); $pages->find("template=event, eventdate.isInYear=$from"); // option 2 $finder = $modules->get("RockDaterangeFinder"); $finder->findInRange("eventdate", $from, $to, "template=event"); $finder->findOnDay("eventdate", $from, "template=event"); ... I think option 1 is cleaner and easier to use and develop, so I'll continue with this option 🙂 Future As @gebeer already asked here I'm of course already thinking of how this could be extended to support recurring events (date ranges) in the future... I'm not sure how to do that yet, but I think it could make a lot of sense to build this feature into this module. I'm not sure if/how/when I can realease this module. I'm building it now for one project and want to see how it works first. Nevertheless I wanted to share the status with you to get some feedback and maybe also get your experiences in working with dates and times or maybe working with recurring events (or the abandoned recurme field). For recurring events the finding process would be a lot more complicated though, so there it might be better to use an approach similar to option 2 in the example above.

    Hi guys, I was very excited for this module, but my life took a huge direction change and I no longer have the time to invest in module development. I am gonna leave the files here. You guys can take it and run. Maybe there might be something useful here. Maybe not. I still think it's a good idea to do drag and drop modal building in PW. So hopefully one day something like that can come to light. I love this community and I love ProcessWire. Live long and prosper. - Joshua Designme 2.zip

    Having just wasted the best part of a day debugging an access issue because I hadn't realised that page-edit-created negated any related page-edit permissions, could I suggest that a note to this effect is included in the default title. I have amended the title on my system to read: Edit only pages user has created (IMPORTANT: This will negate any related page-edit permission - including permissions granted to a user by other roles) ..although it may be possible to make it briefer while not losing clarity and impact.

    @teppo Fantastic addition! Searching repeater and page reference fields are working great. Would it be possible to add support for FieldsetPage fields?

    You don't need PHP at all. I'd suggest to use Google Optimize (and a linked Google Analytics account where you set up your goals) instead. Here's a nice tutorial. (you can skip more or less to step 3 "Create an Experiment" - and make sure you also include the "anti-flicker" stuff at the end of step 2)

    Good thing I marked this as a beta release, because I'm still finding a lot of bugs 😅 I just pushed version 0.4.0. The module is now no longer autoloaded, because it's not really required anymore. This release splits the module into two seperate Modules: ProcessCacheControl and CacheControlTools. They are still installed alongside each other, and ProcessCacheControl will install CacheControlTools during install. For existing installs, you might have to reinstall the module, or install CacheControlTools manually after the upgrade. Also, the asset version management is now part of CacheControlTools, so the code has to be adjusted: // version 0.3.0 and below $CacheControlTools = $modules->get('ProcessCacheControl')->getTools(); // version 0.4.0 $CacheControlTools = $modules->get('CacheControlTools'); A bit of background for the split: I learned something new about the permission system. If a Process module defines a permission, the current user needs that permission not only to access the Process page in the admin, but also for the module to even be instantiated at all. Because of this, the asset management system didn't work for guest users. By splitting the repository into two modules, I can still have strict access control for the Process part of the module, while allowing the tools module to be instantiated even during requests from guest users. Anyway, the module is now, let's say, nearing stability. I'd like to publish a stable release soon, so let me know if you find any more bugs!

    Thanks everyone for the feedback! I just pushed a new version that resolves a bug that prevented installs on PHP versions <7.4. PHP 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3 should work now! Thanks @Mikie for your help! I have also found some documentation in the ProCache store page. I've added an option to clear the ProCache now as well, though I haven't included it in the new version because I can't test it out. Would you mind giving it a go? The ProCache integration is in the procache branch on Github (download link). If it's working as intended, it should add a new option to clear the ProCache in the module configuration, including a note saying whether ProCache is installed. If selected, the 'Clear all' action should use $procache->clearAll and log the result. It would also be good to know if non-superusers can use this, or if it's limited to the superuser. Thanks! The module also appears to have been approved to the module directory, so it can now be downloaded directly through the backend using the module name ProcessCacheControl. Thanks @adrian (or is Ryan in charge of the module directory? 🙃)

    In an ongoing effort to provide a sort of case study, and more info about this, I'll post random screens and info about the various features of this site. (1) Custom Dashboards The site uses a custom module that supports multiple dashboards. Any given dashboard is configurable and access controlled also. This is the main dashboard: (2) The admin editor pages take advantage of some great modules, namely RuntimeMarkup @kongondo, PageFieldInfo @Robin S, Field Descriptions Extended and more, There is also a new module not released yet called Admin Comments, which for this project got a lot of use. When dealing with a large and complex data collection as was the case with this project, the editors benefited from the ability to have the data auto-analyzed on each work so the "auto flags" field helped with that. The comments also allowed editors to post information, ideas and comments right into the page editor. The AdminComments module also provides the option for any posted comment to be emailed to the other team members (selectable), and the notification email (which is customizable) allows the recipient to click directly to the editor for that page. This saved incalculable hours of work, and enhanced communication during the project, across this large data set.

    A great module that works absolutely fine out of the box but I am not happy having the SMTP password in plain text in the database. Is there maybe a reason I am just not getting why this is necessary?

    Reporting back to confirm that it was a max_input_vars issue. Once changed locally, the pages saved as expected. As well, once changed on the production server, the clone and original began to save again.
