  1. Hello, I am building a page of events, where I want to show only the coming ones. I tried this <?php $theNow = new DateTime(); // ora foreach ($page->children as $child): $firstDate = new DateTime(); $firstDate->setTimestamp( $child->event_when ); $interval = $firstDate->diff( $theNow ); echo $interval->s; // in seconds if ($interval >= 0) { // show article } ?> Beside returning a `Object of class DateInterval could not be converted to int` error, I ask if there is a method for displaying future events beside this. Thanks!
  2. I need to see some of the pages content in the Pages tree, for a specific template. Is it possible? Creation dates, a couple of fields content etc. Thanks
  3. I'd like to have a title field "First name second name" which is automatically composed by a "First name" and a "Second name" fields. For example, if I have a page with John Ford as first name and second name respectively, I'd like to have the title as "John Ford" (without quotes). Is it possible? Thanks
  4. I'm using a Datetime field for displaying event dates, and I get an English format: Sunday, 8 January 2023 10:00 I put the set_locale function in the page, but no: <?php setlocale(LC_TIME, 'it_IT'); ?> How do I get a datetime in italian format? Thanks a lot
  5. I have a template with an "images" field. I'm trying to display it on the page, I'm using these lines, with results I do not understand. $page->images // teddy.jpg $page->images->httpUrl // void $page->images->url // /site/assets/files/1085/ $page->images[0]->url // error: accessing non-object I thought `$page->images->url` would work, but no. Why is it?
  6. The question was based on a config error I was neglecting... so please don't consider ?
  7. Indeed, there was a "No new pages for this template" checked ? Thanks!
  8. So I created a template A without file, and when creating a new page PW does not suggest template A probably because it has no file. I suppose it is by design. Is it workaroundable? Thank you very much
  9. I'd like to set up a simple system for tasks and tickets for my business, I wonder if there is already some kind of solution out there. If not, if there is a plugin that makes easy inserting data and editing it through a form (optionally the same used for creating a task etc). Thank you very much
  10. Love this module, but looks like it's not loading js anymore...
  11. I cannot grasp the pattern behind the object method/properties: $page->hasChildren() // or $page->hasChildren ? $page->id(); // or $page->id ? $children->count() // or $children->count ? I mean, when to use parentheses, and when not? Is there a principle behind this? Usually after a couple of attempts I manage to get it working, but I'd like to have the idea come natural, without thinking. Thank you very much
  12. I set up the config file to load _main.php for each page. $config->appendTemplateFile = '_main.php'; Now, I need to have one page without template loaded, for ajax purposes. Can I put some instruction on my empty.php template to not load _main? Thank you very much
  13. I need to display the page https://www.mysite.com/article-2022-1-10/ when the https://www.mysite.com/latest-article/ url is entered. First url should stay hidden, no redirect. Just a content switch, keeping the same url as before. Thank you very much
  14. Hello, I don't grasp the use of a selector like $fields->get("name") or $fields->find("selector") I see in the cheatsheet, since when I need to print a custom field from the page I just need to write $page->mycustomfield or similar. How can I use the $fields object? Thanks!
  15. Hello, is there a method for generating a link on providing the right selector? Something like <?php echo $pages->get("/mypage/")->link ?> generating <a href="/myurl/">mytitle</a> Instead of writing the whole string <?= "<a href='".$pages->get("/")->url."'>".$pages->get("/")->title."</a>" ?> or <a href="<?= $pages->get('/')->url"><?= $pages->get("/")->title ?></a> Thanks!
  16. I'm trying to make a navigation menu, for fetching all the subpages of the root I use this selector: $menu_pages = $pages->get("parent=/"); But I when iterating on the array and printing the pages url I get a "Notice: Trying to get property 'url' of non-object" error. The array is fetched through this code: $menu_pages = $pages->get("/")->children I'd like to know why the first selector is failing. Thanks!
  17. Interesting, the page()->title syntax is not working for me though.
  18. Hello, I'd like to make sure that some value comes from a specific page. I can send a uuid or something via post, and that value is checked and validated against on the landing page. This value should always change randomly, but always be linked to a passphrase I choose. How could I implement this? Thank you very much
  19. Hello, app architecture-related: does it make sense to have pageOne for the form, and pageTwo for checking fields value. If not suitable, redirect to pageOne, back and forth until pageThree for entry creation etc. I've seen many times the validation logic on top of the form page, but I'd prefer to keep the two elements separated. What are your thoughts about this idea? Thank you very much
  20. Hello, I'm wondering if it makes sense to use the built-in users functionality for managing -- hopefully -- thousands of users who should not have access to Processwire admin pages? Thats like saying I need users of my app, not my cms' installation. Are there pros-cons of creating my own users management system, from a security point of view? Thank you very much
  21. As far as I know there are these two methods: adding it to each templates via the 'Files' tab, or including it on every .php template file. Are there other ways? Thanks
  22. Hello, is there any template displaying the template associated to each page? some to inspect on the fly, without entering each and every page in the tree? Thanks
  23. Hi Toni, I'm having the same problem, could you be more precise on you solved this? Thank you
  24. Hello, I'm using the Smarty Template engine, and I would like to include a 'variables' file in each page, without explicitly including it in every file (I'm lazy and dry ?, either .php or Smarty template. Something like functions.php in WP environment. If not possible, what is the best way? Thanks
