  1. One field for each role could cause problems, because a new user might have more than one role. Then: which message do you send? All of them? You would need some complicated conditional logic in the UI. Not all that easy.
  2. Wow, @adrian – that looks good, it might be exactly what I need for my client. I’ll chedk this out in the next few days. Do you have a small hint in which format I set line breaks? $u->emailMessage = "Hello {name}\n\nwelcome to the show"; or better this way? $u->emailMessage = 'Hello {name} welcome to the show';
  3. Is it possible to have different welcome messages for different User-Roles? I use the module via API. Maybe it’s possible to manually choose an email template file for each welcome message, something like this: $u = new User(); $u->name = "foo"; $u->pass = randomPassword(); $u->sendEmail = true; $u->welcomeMessageFile = '/some/path/client.txt'; $u->save() My client has a bunch of different user types that need a variety of welcome texts. Any idea how I could accomplish that?
  4. Thanks for the update! It would be brilliant if you could take a look at two issues that I experience using the new custom image/file data (which were introduced in 3.0.142). This feature seems to be not that stable in repeater context and multi-language context...
  5. @Jens Martsch - dotnetic That is more or less the same that I did. Not pretty, but works:
  6. Here is my final init.php code for bilingual password forgot. if (wire('session')->language) { wire('languages')->setLanguage(wire('session')->language); } $wire->addHookBefore('ProcessLogin::execute', function($event) { if (wire('input')->lang == 'fr') { wire('languages')->setLanguage(7085); wire('session')->language = 7085 } });
  7. I’m such a noob! I used the hook with function parentheses. ProcessLogin::execute() is wrong. ProcessLogin::execute works totally fine. Thanks, case closed!
  8. Hey @kixe Thanks for your answer. However, I couldn’t hook in correctly. I tried every hook from "ProcessLogin". The most suitable seemed "buildLoginForm" or "renderLoginForm", because I want the form itself to be translated. None of my hooking attempts seemed to be executed. This is from my init.php: $wire->addHookBefore('ProcessLogin::buildLoginForm()', function($event) { wire('log')->save('langlog', 'language should be: '.wire('input')->lang); if (wire('input')->lang == 'fr') { wire('languages')->setLanguage(7085); } }); I cannot explain why there is no log entry after visiting mysite.com/processwire/?forgot=1&lang=fr
  9. If my backend has two languages, is there any way to force (via URL parameter?) which language will be displayed on the login page and the password forgot page?
  10. Maybe I’ll just build the language-dependend "show/hide" switch as a hidden field, and then write a little bit of custom javascript to somehow make it very compact in the top right corner. Let’s see how that works out.
  11. Insane! Great, thank you. I submitted a pull request on github, because in my installation the created label was empty.
  12. Of course that’s the obvious thing to do. But it takes a lot of space and makes my (already) complex repeatermatrix items even more complex... Any ideas for "hacking" oder "hooking" into these little icons in the top right corner?
  13. Wouldn’t it be cool to have whole repeater items (or even repeater matrix items) language-specific. Some of my clients do have pages that are 90% identical in German and English, but there are some sections that should not appear in one or another language. I attached a concept screenshot. Would something like this be possible with some simple backend hooks and "hidden checkbox fields"? Or is it way more complicated?
