  1. Dohhhhhh! My bad, I totally missed that. I could swear I saw "Release" somewhere on this module. Once I get a firmer grasp of PW's ins and outs, I'd be happy to contribute what brain cells I have left to working out the kinks.
  2. That was excellent, THANK YOU! Steps 4+ were where I was stuck on. And yes, you were right...now that I see how it works, it *is* far easier than I was making it out to be. Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my questions! Now I'm off to tackle the navigation.
  3. "Hello World" always works for me *grins* This looks awesome Ryan, I appreciate it, especially on a holiday weekend. I saw the Quick Start (in process) on the site yesterday (yeah, I promised myself I'd take this weekend off...we see how that went), though I'm not seeing it now/can't find it now. Taking this tutorial for a spin now, thanks!
  4. Yeah, that keeps being referenced when I ask questions. I *have* read it, several times in fact, long before I ever considering asking for help in the forum.
  5. Much of the time I'm at a location where I can't watch videos. I did watch a few posted to YouTube about ProcessWire...and found they either repeated simple steps over and over, or went too fast for me to figure anything out. Yep, I saw that in the comments of the module (though the example needs a semi-colon at the end).. Tried it, and it didn't work for me. Perhaps I should list all steps taken before asking questions in the forums, to save time.
  6. A fan page would be a good idea, also. News, announcements, etc can be shared from a fan page, where they can't be from a group. I normally *hate* FB groups...but I made this one exception
  7. Yep, I saw the examples included. It was the first thing I looked at. Still lost.
  8. No worries...just wanted to make sure I didn't miss it. Even showing one way, a starting point, is a good thing. Getting started with something new is almost always the hardest part. Having gotten their feet wet, it's easier to for people to find their own way.
  9. I had done what you suggested, several times in fact. I went back once more (just to be thorough) and took a looooonger look at header.php (head.inc renamed), and see a lot more than I did over the past few days. I swear that sidebar code wasn't there before! lol I think I was expecting only "header" info to be there. My bad for that. I have read the templates section of the API, but it didn't really "click" for me. I think the part that's confusing me is the fields/fieldtypes. How they are used/called. I was able to find some http://processwire.com/videos/page-fieldtype/ documentation under videos, and if those are the other docs available then I'll watch next week. I'm not always in a place/location where I can watch videos. I personally do much better with written code examples. Yeah, sorry...I'm old sk00l. I do still want to know how to call a module (say the Twitter feed) into a specific area (say the sidebar). I respectfully disagree, this functionality *is* something one needs to get a site going. Or any other module. Your choice. Thanks. Time will tell if that holds true. It's heavily commented, to a point. That's the point where at least *I* am left asking the question "OK, now what? Now what do I do?" I go through this myself when I write tutorials on things I have done for years (and could do in my sleep). What needs to be done (and the knowledge behind it) is so ingrained in me, that I don't realize not everyone knows the inbetween parts. I happen to share that opinion of those two (and more). I've tried many CMSes (CMSi? lol) and never careful for them because they are more of a hindrance than a help. That's why I was hoping that PW would be a good solution, since from what I see it "stays out of my way" more so than your average CMS. I'm used to coding by hand, using includes. I just need to get past this "learning bump" to see if PW is a good fit. I realize I probably come across as impatient, but I don't have 2 weeks to ramp up on something unless I can be sure it will do what I need it to do, and the time is being well-spent. It's never taken me more than a day to judge one way or the other whether an app would fit my needs. What I've seen of PW thus far, it has some amazing features! Now if I only knew how to use them.... That would be awesome! SMFs' search feature leaves a lot to be desired. I *do* appreciate your reply and your efforts, thank you!
  10. Thank you! That's the part I'm stumped over. That and the fields (how they work, etc). I've looked at the HelloWorld.module and tried to decipher/deconstruct it to see how it's working, and see that the placement is hard-coded into the module itself. I can't speak for others, but I don't even need a step-by-step tutorial. Just a working example would be fine. Something that shows how to make what I want show up where I want it.
  11. I'd love to see the set, also. I think seeing how they go together would go a long way in showing those of us who are new to PW how it works. Without examples, I'm lost. I have to wonder if others who've been with this project a while started with that set as examples?
  12. A search of "Processwire" on the http://codingpad.maryspad.com/ site comes back empty. Would it be under something else/another name?
  13. Yeah. A getting started/tutorial is REALLY needed. I'm well versed in HTML/XHTML/CSS/PHP/Javascript/Perl, etc (nearing 10 years of experience)...but this involves more than simply writing the code. Yes, I can edit pages through the GUI, but beyond that, I have NFI idea how to begin to do what I want to do. I've installed modules. OK, great...now how do I get them to show up? In the Page? In the sidebar? I'll continue slogging through the forums looking for clues, hopefully I wouldn't give up before I find enough to get started. Just some simple code examples would be enough. It's like there's documentation on steps 1 and 2, then steps 7, 8 and 9....but steps 3, 4, 5 and 6 aren't referenced anywhere. TIA to Ryan, Martin, and Apesia. I've already gotten a lot of good tips from your posts.
