  1. Hi everyone! This is Antti from Avoine. Our website business is growing and we are looking for some extra talent to help us. We are looking for web developer(s) with great visual skills who can design and develop websites that look great and work fast on desktop and mobile. We are looking for a long-term partnership, not a single project gig. Agencies and freelancers can both apply. All the projects will come to our hosting and maintenance, so we expect you to build websites in a same way that we build all our sites. We will of course teach and help to get in track with this. Our current process includes: source code hosted at github.com gulp based workflow composer based processwire installation default site profile that all our projects use tailwind css wireframe used for output strategy We hope that you are familiar with tools like git and composer. Not too much, so don't be afraid about these. Please contact me with email to antti.peisa@avoine.fi and please include: Links to at least 2 reference projects online (both design and front end development needs done by you or your company) Some kind of estimate about how many hours reference project development took Your hour price in euros or usd Looking forward for your application. This is great opportunity to work with legendary creatures like @teppo @Fokke and unfortunately me too.

  3. There isn't, because they are a one person, who is busy working hard on Padloper at the moment to make sure it's a great solution when it's ready to be released. And probably has other things going on, too. Estimated timescales have been mentioned a few times, but the thing with estimates is that they're not concrete dates, and nor should they be. I trust that what is being built is a great module. As it is a commercial offering, I also trust that the support will be there, if or when it is needed. I've also started the groundwork for a commerce project - I had planned to use Snipcart, but Padloper might be better - I won't know until it's released and I'm happy to wait until it is to make that choice.

  4. Haha @bernhard easy on me.. Still coding like it's 2005 over here.. Guess the 10 year break made me miss out on a whole lot of stuff 😉 Good lord I'm glad these arrays are no longer needed 😄 if ($modules->isInstalled("TextformatterNormalizeUtf8")) { $pgs = $pages->find("template=artist"); foreach($pgs as $p) { $p->of(false); $summary=$p->summary; bd("OLD: $summary"); $this->modules->get('TextformatterNormalizeUtf8')->format($summary); bd("NORMALIZED: $summary"); $p->summary = $summary; $p->save('summary'); } }

  5. $value = "üäö"; // bad values $this->modules->get('TextformatterNormalizeUtf8')->format($value); echo $value; // good values Note that $value is modified by reference. Imho a good utf8 normalization should be built into the core as sanitizer. So it would be great if you came up with a solid solution that we can suggest ryan 🙂

  6. ProcessWire Dashboard Download You can find the latest release on Github. Documentation Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options. Custom Panels The goal was to make it simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people. Roadmap Panel types Google Analytics Draft At a glance / Page counter 404s Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel Chart panel load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array)

  7. Hey folks! I'm happy to finally introduce a project I've been working on for quite a while now: it's called Wireframe, and it is an output framework for ProcessWire. Note that I'm posting this in the module development area, maily because this project is still in rather early stage. I've built a couple of sites with it myself, and parts of the codebase have been powering some pretty big and complex sites for many years now, but this should still be considered a soft launch 🙂 -- Long story short, Wireframe is a module that provides the "backbone" for building sites (and apps) with ProcessWire using an MVC (or perhaps MVVM... one of those three or four letter acronyms anyway) inspired methodology. You could say that it's an output strategy, but I prefer the term "output framework", since in my mind the word "strategy" means something less tangible. A way of doing things, rather than a tool that actually does things. Wireframe (the module) provides a basic implementation for some familiar MVC concepts, such as Controllers and a View layer – the latter of which consists of layouts, partials, and template-specific views. There's no "model" layer, since in this context ProcessWire is the model. As a module Wireframe is actually quite simple – not even nearly the biggest one I've built – but there's still quite a bit of stuff to "get", so I've put together a demo & documentation site for it at https://wireframe-framework.com/. In addition to the core module, I'm also working on a couple of site profiles based on it. My current idea is actually to keep the module very light-weight, and implement most of the "opinionated" stuff in site profiles and/or companion modules. For an example MarkupMenu (which I released a while ago) was developed as one of those "companion modules" when I needed a menu module to use on the site profiles. Currently there are two public site profiles based on Wireframe: site-wireframe-docs is the demo&docs site mentioned above, just with placeholder content replaced with placeholder content. It's not a particularly complex site, but I believe it's still a pretty nice way to dig into the Wireframe module. site-wireframe-boilerplate is a boilerplate (or starter) site profile based on the docs site. This is still very much a work in progress, but essentially I'm trying to build a flexible yet full-featured starter profile you can just grab and start building upon. There will be a proper build process for resources, it will include most of the basic features one tends to need from site to site, etc. -- Requirements and getting started: Wireframe can be installed just like any ProcessWire module. Just clone or download it to your site/modules/ directory and install. It doesn't, though, do a whole lot of stuff on itself – please check out the documentation site for a step-by-step guide on setting up the directory structure, adding the "bootstrap file", etc. You may find it easier to install one of the site profiles mentioned above, but note that this process involves the use of Composer. In the case of the site profiles you can install ProcessWire as usual and download or clone the site profile directory into your setup, but after that you should run "composer install" to get all the dependencies – including the Wireframe module – in place. Hard requirements for Wireframe are ProcessWire 3.0.112 and PHP 7.1+. The codebase is authored with current PHP versions in mind, and while running it on 7.0 may be possible, anything below that definitely won't work. A feature I added just today to the Wireframe module is that in case ProcessWire has write access to your site/templates/ directory, you can use the module settings screen to create the expected directories automatically. Currently that's all, and the module won't – for an example – create Controllers or layouts for you, so you should check out the site profiles for examples on these. (I'm probably going to include some additional helper features in the near future.) -- This project is loosely based on an earlier project called pw-mvc, i.e. the main concepts (such as Controllers and the View layer) are very similar. That being said, Wireframe is a major upgrade in terms of both functionality and architecture: namespaces and autoloader support are now baked in, the codebase requires PHP 7, Controllers are classes extending \Wireframe\Controller (instead of regular "flat" PHP files), implementation based on a module instead of a collection of drop-in files, etc. While Wireframe is indeed still in a relatively early stage (0.3.0 was launched today, in case version numbers matter) for the most part I'm happy with the way it works, and likely won't change it too drastically anytime soon – so feel free to give it a try, and if you do, please let me know how it went. I will continue building upon this project, and I am also constantly working on various side projects, such as the site profiles and a few unannounced helper modules. I should probably add that while Wireframe is not hard to use, it is more geared towards those interested in "software development" type methodology. With future updates to the module, the site profiles, and the docs I hope to lower the learning curve, but certain level of "developer focus" will remain. Although of course the optimal outcome would be if I could use this project to lure more folks towards that end of the spectrum... 🙂 -- Please let me know what you think – and thanks in advance!

  8. 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.

  9. ProcessWire InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDuplicate Thanks to the great ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use a content module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time. This module extends the commercial ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" by the function to duplicate repeater items from one page to another page. The condition is that the target field is the same matrix field from which the item is duplicated. This module is currently understood as proof of concept. There are a few limitations that need to be considered. The intention of the module is that this functionality is integrated into the core of RepeaterMatrix and does not require an extra module. Check out the screencast What the module can do Duplicate multible repeater items from one page to another No matter how complex the item is Full support for file and image fields Multilingual support Support of Min and Max settings Live synchronization of clipboard between multiple browser tabs. Copy an item and simply switch the browser tab to the target page and you will immediately see the past button Support of multiple RepeaterMatrix fields on one page Configurable which roles and fields are excluded Configurable dialogs for copy and paste Duplicated items are automatically pasted to the end of the target field and set to hidden status so that changes are not directly published Automatic clipboard update when other items are picked Automatically removes old clipboard data if it is not pasted within 6 hours Delete clipboard itself by clicking the selected item again Benefit: unbelievably fast workflow and content replication What the module can't do Before an item can be duplicated in its current version, the source page must be saved. This means that if you make changes to an item and copy this, the old saved state will be duplicated Dynamic loading is currently not possible. Means no AJAX. When pasting, the target page is saved completely No support for nested repeater items. Currently only first level items can be duplicated. Means a repeater field in a repeater field cannot be duplicated. Workaround: simply duplicate the parent item Dynamic reloading and adding of repeater items cannot be registered. Several interfaces and events from the core are missing. The initialization occurs only once after the page load event Attention, please note! Nested repeaters cannot be supported technically. Therefore a check is made to prevent this. However, a nested repeater can only be detected if the field name ends for example with "_repeater1234". For example, if your MatrixRepeater field is named like this: "content_repeater" or "content_repeater123", this field is identified as nested and the module does not load. In version 2.0.1 the identification has been changed so that a field ending with the name repeater is only detected as nested if at least a two-digit number sequence follows. But to avoid this problem completely, make sure that your repeater matrix field does NOT end with the name "repeater". Changelog 2.0.1 Bug fix: Thanks to @ngrmm I could discover a bug which causes that the module cannot be loaded if the MatrixRepeater field ends with the name "repeater". The code was adjusted and information about the problem was provided 2.0.0 Feature: Copy multiple items at once! The fundament for copying multiple items was created by @Autofahrn - THX! Feature: Optionally you can disable the copy and/or paste dialog Bug fix: A fix suggestion when additional and normal repeater fields are present was contributed by @joshua - THX! 1.0.4 Bug fix: Various bug fixes and improvements in live synchronization Bug fix: Items are no longer inserted when the normal save button is clicked. Only when the past button is explicitly clicked Feature: Support of multiple repeater fields in one page Feature: Support of repeater Min/Max settings Feature: Configurable roles and fields Enhancement: Improved clipboard management Enhancement: Documentation improvement Enhancement: Corrected few typos #1 1.0.3 Feature: Live synchronization Enhancement: Load the module only in the backend Enhancement: Documentation improvement 1.0.2 Bug fix: Various bug fixes and improvements in JS functions Enhancement: Documentation improvement Enhancement: Corrected few typos 1.0.1 Bug fix: Various bug fixes and improvements in the duplication process 1.0.0 Initial release Support this module If this module is useful for you, I am very thankful for your small donation: Donate 5,- Euro (via PayPal – or an amount of your choice.

  10. A new module that hasn't had a lot of testing yet. Please do your own testing before deploying on any production website. Custom Paths Allows any page to have a custom path/URL. Note: Custom Paths is incompatible with the core LanguageSupportPageNames module. I have no experience working with LanguageSupportPageNames or multi-language sites in general so I'm not in a position to work out if a fix is possible. If anyone with multi-language experience can contribute a fix it would be much appreciated! Screenshot Usage The module creates a field named custom_path on install. Add the custom_path field to the template of any page you want to set a custom path for. Whatever path is entered into this field determines the path and URL of the page ($page->path and $page->url). Page numbers and URL segments are supported if these are enabled for the template, and previous custom paths are managed by PagePathHistory if that module is installed. The custom_path field appears on the Settings tab in Page Edit by default but there is an option in the module configuration to disable this if you want to position the field among the other template fields. If the custom_path field is populated for a page it should be a path that is relative to the site root and that starts with a forward slash. The module prevents the same custom path being set for more than one page. The custom_path value takes precedence over any ProcessWire path. You can even override the Home page by setting a custom path of "/" for a page. It is highly recommended to set access controls on the custom_path field so that only privileged roles can edit it: superuser-only is recommended. It is up to the user to set and maintain suitable custom paths for any pages where the module is in use. Make sure your custom paths are compatible with ProcessWire's $config and .htaccess settings, and if you are basing the custom path on the names of parent pages you will probably want to have a strategy for updating custom paths if parent pages are renamed or moved. Example hooks to Pages::saveReady You might want to use a Pages::saveReady hook to automatically set the custom path for some pages. Below are a couple of examples. 1. In this example the start of the custom path is fixed but the end of the path will update dynamically according to the name of the page: $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'my_template') { $page->custom_path = "/some-custom/path-segments/$page->name/"; } }); 2. The Custom Paths module adds a new Page::realPath method/property that can be used to get the "real" ProcessWire path to a page that might have a custom path set. In this example the custom path for news items is derived from the real ProcessWire path but a parent named "news-items" is removed: $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'news_item') { $page->custom_path = str_replace('/news-items/', '/', $page->realPath); } }); Caveats The custom paths will be used automatically for links created in CKEditor fields, but if you have the "link abstraction" option enabled for CKEditor fields (Details > Markup/HTML (Content Type) > HTML Options) then you will see notices from MarkupQA warning you that it is unable to resolve the links. Installation Install the Custom Paths module. Uninstallation The custom_path field is not automatically deleted when the module is uninstalled. You can delete it manually if the field is no longer needed. https://github.com/Toutouwai/CustomPaths https://modules.processwire.com/modules/custom-paths/

Use at your own risk 😉 Does anyone see how there could be any downsides to this approach on a live PW site?

  12. Sorry @graziano I had to use and install XDebug today and stumbled over this as well. For future reference or others having the same problem this is what worked for me: { // Use IntelliSense to learn about possible attributes. // Hover to view descriptions of existing attributes. // For more information, visit: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=830387 "version": "0.2.0", "configurations": [ { "name": "Listen for XDebug", "type": "php", "request": "launch", "port": 9000 }, { "name": "Launch currently open script", "type": "php", "request": "launch", "program": "${file}", "cwd": "${fileDirname}", "port": 9000 } ] } Fortunately VSCode now has a direct link and this file should be created automatically once you click on it: Once the launch.json file exists the panel will change and you will be able to listen for xdebug:

  16. Sup. FieldtypeOpenWeatherMap [GitHub] This module fetches and stores current weather data from the OpenWeatherMap.org service and helps you manage icon markup. To limit requests, OpenWeatherMap.org’s JSON-response is cached in the database and only refreshed once the field is accessed and the cache has a certain age that you define. The fieldtype is sadly not multilingual, but you can configure the language of the weather descriptions OpenWeatherMap.org provides you with. It would not be hard to make the output multilingual by referencing weather codes and translating them with ProcessWire’s built in tools. You install FieldtypeOpenWeatherMap just like any other module, by placing the two files into ProcessWire’s modules directory. Once installed, you want to create a new field of the type OpenWeatherMap and assign it to a template. The template now has a text field that stores a city id. In the field settings, you may configure how and when the data is requested. That is, the requested language, units (eg. °C/°F/K) and the cache duration. The module does not provide you with built in icons or otherwise limits you to predefined markup (which I consider a good thing ). The icon in my example above is courtesy of Alessio Atzeni’s Meteocons (custom free license). To make generating icon markup a little easier, you can configure your own markup snippets in the module configuration: As you can see, in this example I’m using an icon font whose appearance is defined elsewhere in my CSS, but you’re free to put in image urls or just unicode entities or whatever. Rendering it is now quite simple. The following markup would result in something like the image above: <?php $w = $city->weather; $temp = round($w->temperature); ?> <p><?php echo "{$w->renderIcon()} {$w->description} at {$temp} °C"; ?></p> <h2><?php echo $city->title; ?> <span class="ico-rightarrow"></span></h2> <!-- irrelevant line --> The variable $w is now a WeatherData object that exposes the following properties: json //The raw JSON response from OWM timestamp //The time of the request city_id //The city id you entered in the admin sunrise //The time of sunrise sunset //The time of sunset main //The main weather name, e. g. “Rain”, in the configured language description //A slightly longer, more precise description like “occasional rain” iconcode //The internal icon code for this weather temperature //The temperature in the format you requested min_temperature //... max_temperature //… wind_speed //I believe the wind speed is also affected by the unit settings. As well as the method renderIcon(), which you already know. If you access a WeatherData object as a string, you will get the city id. This is so that the city id will correctly appear in the admin page edit form. I should mention that there is some more information in the JSON, such as wind direction. The module also exposes the method multiRequest(PageArray $pages, $fieldname). If you want to fetch data for a bunch of pages at the same time, you may want to use that so as to reduce unnecessary requests to the service. I haven’t really used this yet, so consider it experimental, I guess. As of now, this also disregards the cache freshness. If you’re still reading, there’s a chance you might be interested in using this. Allow me to clarify that right now there is no support for forecasts or historical data (yet?). Sorry :> Here’s the GitHub link: FieldtypeOpenWeatherMap.

  17. Greetings, I think you hit right at the point here. If people come to ProcessWire seeking a plugin-dependent, template-based system, they will have problems with it. (Of course, it's also not quite right to compare ProcessWire to Laravel, but that's at least a closer comparison). Over the past few years, I've treated ProcessWire like a Framework that includes built-in admin enhancements. My clients actually really like the default admin interface for most of their sites -- including those who came from WP. Now, comparing ProcessWire to SquareSpace (or any of the other "site builders") is ridiculous, and anyone who makes that comparison is revealing their ignorance. With all that, I'll still say what I've said for years: ProcessWire should be openly discussed as a hybrid framework/CMS. That way would reduce misunderstandings like that of this reviewer. Matthew

  18. Here's an example... The page structure: Some pet species have breed child pages and some do not. The selector string for selectable pages for the breed field is "parent=page.species". In ready.php: $wire->addHookAfter('ProcessPageEdit::buildForm', function(HookEvent $event) { /* @var InputfieldForm $form */ $form = $event->return; $breed_field = $form->getChildByName('breed'); if(!$breed_field) return; $species_with_breeds = $event->wire('pages')->find('parent=/selects/pets/, children.count>0'); $breed_field->showIf = 'species=' . $species_with_breeds->implode('|', 'id'); });

  19. In this forum you will not find too many fanboys (ie. members) who are interested in comments like this. I do not know what "bigboys" mean but you should familiarize yourself with the philosophy behind the ProcessWire project: https://processwire.com/blog/posts/new-2.8-version-current-projects-and-pw-usage/ Quote from Ryan: "I'll be honest, I've never cared much about our usage numbers, as I'd be doing the same thing with ProcessWire even if there were just the two of us, you and me. I do this work because I love it, and I don't care about being popular. Popularity is a burden as far as I'm concerned. Our focus has always been to be the best CMS according to our standards rather than anyone else's. But it's also encouragaging to look at things outside every once in awhile and see that ProcessWire is becoming more and more recognized in this market." ProcessWire forum members are open-minded. You came here to insult them.

  20. I think comparing PW to Django is like comparing PW to Laravel. They are different beasts with different use cases. All of them are Awesome (Althought I prefer Flask, Yarrrg for pirates!) Maybe comparing PW to https://wagtail.io/ or https://www.django-cms.org/en/ could be more fair since they are CMS just like PW is. I think the bottom line of chosing a toolbox is down to simple questions: 1- I like using it? 2- What use cases can I fulfill? 3- Makes my team and clients happy to work with? So just use what is best for the requirements, restrictions and overal context of the project at hand. Not all projects can be done with Laravel, Django or PW. Maybe you can mix both and have the best of them :).

  21. @codelearner I'm not sure if PW is superior to Django. But some of the strong point of PW is ... that we have that PW2.1 installation running since 6 years without any updates. We don't have to, since there's no security update needed or anything else. But updating it to PW3.x is a matter of 5 minutes, and it still works without doing anything. Except switching the RTE editor, not because it's an issue but CKeditor is now the default RTE. From the PW side mostly there's like 0h maintenance over the years. Developing and supporting projects with PW can be a fun task. ... there's a hierarchical structure that naturally represents a website structure that can be squeezed and squashed and moved around without much efforts, build self containing structures and wrap it up with some code. ... build modules in no time for whatever task. It's consistent with using the API you already familiar with. PW admin itself is built using its API. It's easy to manipulate and extend. ... occasionally you'll hear a "I just love PW" from yourself or your coworker. Usually when the deadline is tight and you have make last minute changes that would be impossible in other Systems. How do you come to this conclusion? Have you already developed something 3 months in PW and then built it in Django?

  22. Hi everybody, I'd like to share a new module with you. Its purpose is to let users sign in with their Active Directory accounts using LDAP. It works similar to the module jimyost released in 2012, but adds some new features to it. You can define specific roles that are applied to new LDAP users Passwords are automatically updated by LDAP Local users still work like a charm You can translate it in the language you want to deploy your ProcessWire site New: Connect to a LDAP server via SSL New: Debug Mode New: Your configuration will be validated on save In my opinion, LDAP authentication is a must-have for ProcessWire being successful in the enterprise. What do you think? Is there a feature you miss? You can find the repository here: https://github.com/conclurer/LdapSignIn You can find the module in the ProcessWire module directory. Thanks in advance! Marvin Edit: Updated to Version 0.5.1 Beta including some minor fixes

  23. ∞Textformatter Normalize UTF8 uses a lightweight PHP class (Patchwork UTF-8) for UTF8 normalization. Use it if .. If you check the page with the W3C HTML5 validator, you'll maybe get the following warning: Text run is not in Unicode Normalization Form C. Or if you notice strange output in some browsers (bold letters, shifted characters, ..).What it does In Unicode it is possible to produce the same text with different sequences of characters. For example, take the Hungarian word világ. The fourth letter could be stored in memory as a precomposed U+00E1 LATIN SMALL LETTER A WITH ACUTE (a single character) or as a decomposed sequence of U+0061 LATIN SMALL LETTER A followed by U+0301 COMBINING ACUTE ACCENT (two characters). világ = világ The Unicode Standard allows either of these alternatives, but requires that both be treated as identical. To improve efficiency, an application will usually normalize text before performing searches or comparisons. Normalization, in this case, means converting the text to use all precomposed or all decomposed characters. There are four normalization forms specified by the Unicode Standard: NFC, NFD, NFKC and NFKD. The C stands for (pre-)composed, and the D for decomposed. The K stands for compatibility. To improve interoperability, the W3C recommends the use of NFC normalized text on the Web. -- W3C
