  1. no, i think you should stick with what you have, my first comment was more of a general recommendation for future reference.. I just think you have some things messed up in your template files, i could even see it viewing the source; i don't think uploading your local install files will necessarily fix this;

    really you need to look at the firefox web console and see the very many redirects coming from soundcloud, and 404 file not found errors; that should give you some clues of where to start fixing; at this point i would just go forward and finish developing the site on the server.

  2. Couple of things -

    1.) I always just upload the whole site from my local install, install the DB, change the mySQL info in the site/config, and it always works great; this would mean you could avoid having to run the exporter, and then the PW installer...might save some steps;

    2.) You site has some big issues; I would suggest to install the firefox web developer tools and look at the console; most of the problems you are having are related to soundcloud and a calendar script, but once you see the console output you'll know, because there are a LOT of errors, like these:

    [17:55:57.800] ReferenceError: Validator is not defined @ http://www.fem-k.com/_php/_php/_php/_php/calendar/calendar_form.php?objname=date3&selected_day=0&selected_month=0&selected_year=0&year_start=2012&year_end=2022&dp=1&da1=1346299200&da2=1661918400&sna=1&aut=&frm=&tar=&inp=&fmt=j%20F%20Y&dis=&pr1=&pr2=&prv=&pth=../_php/calendar/&spd=[[],[],[]]&spt=0&och=&str=0&rtl=&wks=∫=1&hid=1&hdt=1000:274

  3. I'm also interested in automated backups; i found this on Codecanyon and will probably purchase/try it for use with some PW sites..


    Update: I have purchased this and installed it; it works very well; I was able to backup my processwire site and database with 1 click, and then setup a cron job to back it up once a week; the script saves your settings in a json file (so no database); I'm having it save the archives to a remote ftp, but it also supports local and dropbox backups.

    Update 2: I just took a look at stillmovingdesign's suggestion, and the cpanel backup looks great...i like that the files are not stored in the web root;

  4. OK - right, this is in fact the select module by Hani, (got so used to installing that,forgot it was a separate module..);

    But i can confirm that the option/value feature of this module doesn't work for me, or if it does, the code might need to be updated to allow for changes to the list after the initial setup; It works fine if you don't have the option/value pair;

    I guess i'm going to start using apeisa's suggestion, since it will enable the end users to add options without having to go in and edit a field; I usually have a hidden 'settings' page with the global site settings, so i have seen it suggested elsewhere in the forum to setup a child page within that settings page, and below that define dropdown options; so in my case i would have a child page of settings called 'language choices' and then each of those could contain the option/value pair...

  5. this is the 2nd time i have encountered this issue; the first time i just figured i was doing it wrong;

    when making the options in a select list, it says:

    Each option should be typed on it's own line. If you would like an option/label pair, use := to separate the values. For instance 1:=Poor, 2:=Excellent. The value stored in the database would be the first part of the pair (1 and 2 respectively) and the latter would be displayed in the dropdown.

    this is my list:

    engus:=English (US)

    enguk:=English (UK)





    but for some reason this is not working...it doesn't store the value when using this kind of list. Does it only work with numbers?, or can we have the stored data be the string on the left (which could be a css class for example) and on the right be able to use a word combination that is more understandable to the user...


  6. @evanmcd-

    Have you considered using something like Fabrik or Zoo (since you're already in Joomla..)-

    Either of those can handle custom content pretty well, (not as nice as PW!); I have a bunch of sites using Zoo and it's decent for custom content; it runs as a sort of a separate sub-cms with custom fields...

  7. very nice site... if you want to try it yourself, here is one idea:

    in PW, create 2 fields for the homepage template, 1 for the image and 1 for the link (then upload your image and select the page for the link)

    then add a div to the homepage template (maybe with id of "homepage-box") with the basic markup, and echo the fields from PW;

    in the css, get the div to position where you want it, size, placement etc.., then set it to display:none in the css

    then use jquery delay and optionally fade in to get it to appear when needed;

    this might be a start:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() { 
  8. Hey- thanks again to everyone for checking this out and liking it etc.. I really appreciate it. I have some projects in the workds that will likely be using PW, so i'll be posting more in the showcase...

    Processwire has a great community, and I'm really psyched to have chosen it as my primary CMS.

  9. Looking good. One thing; there seem to be a lot of missing amazon image links in the 'Selected Discography' section on the artists pages. Or at least, i'm getting a whole lot of red crosses.

    thanks for looking! - i have it setup to pull the images from Amazon, so that in the backend you only enter an ASIN #, and then the template forms the image URL from that; it's working here, and i've seen it once in a while not get all of the images from Amazon, if maybe the server is slow.... maybe there is a better way to do it, i.e. have PW actually retrieve the amazon image into the local filesystem - i've seem some talk about that somewhere here on the forum...

    @apeisa - thanks for checking it out on a mobile - i've only been previewing it with chrome in various viewport widths..

    @Martijn - thanks also for checking out this site... and very glad to be crediting processwire and not some other CMS's that i now dread..PW really is pure fun.
