  1. Another year has passed... I was looking for a way to include database backup in my deployment process. I did not want to use some external secrets storage yet, so looked for a way to use db credentials already present in PW config. So I wrote a simple script, which I put in the project repo and call from cli during the deployment process like this: php -f backup.php For the sake of simplicity backup.php is in the web root. Here are its contents: <?php // backup.php include("index.php"); $backup = $database->backups(); $file = $backup->backup(); if($file) { echo "Backed up to: $file"; } else { echo "Backup failed: " . implode("<br>", $backup->errors()); } The full docs on how to customize it as you need should be here, but are now missing for some reason. One can still get them from the source code anyway) P.S. I am looking for a way to do it with a simple one-liner in cli to get rid of the backup.php, but not sure it is possible with php an easy way. Any advice appreciated! P.P.S. I knew I could do it, because @adrian done it in his wonderful Admin Actions module. Go read its code for inspiration and for education, if you are not a PW guru yet.
  2. @kongondo, I think so. Neither the domain nor certain urls are blocked.
  3. Hello, friends! These days it is not that easy to join you here on the forums if you happen to be anywhere in Russia. You probably heard about our government's struggle to ban Telegram. And ProcessWire's ip is in the list. At these moments you start to understand just how important can a seemingly remote online community be in your everyday life and work. Thank you all for being here. As long as VPN's still function we can stay together .
  4. Cool! I was guessing you will try to create something like this as soon as I tried the power of InputfieldSelectize .
  5. Hello, @Macrura! Thanks for your wonderful modules. Used them on 2 projects with full success and satisfaction)) Now I have a need to implement something like this, but do not have the budget to buy it. I was wondering if your InputfieldSelectize module could do something alike. I can see that the limitation has to be the number of pages that the module can load without getting php and the server to through an error. Do you have any experience with managing relatively large amount of pages with this module? Like 100 to 1000? Did you do any kind of search and/or ajax loading?
  6. @Artomultiplo, you could set Movie_Type and Movie_Category as Page Fields to interlink you content. See here for some inspiration.
  7. @Artomultiplo check out these docs.
  8. Hey @PWaddict! Thanks for the module. Today I found a use case for it. I have a lot of pages with a certain template under root which pollute the Page Tree and make other pages hard to find. They are there for the sake of pretty URL structure. I wanted them to be hidden even for superuser (the one who struggles the most in admin area ), so I removed $this->user->isSuperuser() from the code. I spotted something that looks like a bug and a chance to improve the module. Pagination and the ">More" button still count all the pages, including the hidden ones. Maybe there is a chance to fix it?
  9. Hey @James Ulrich! Welcome to the forums! I think, learning PHP+JS or Python+JS is pretty straightforward. Just start a web project and do both backend and frontend stuff)) It is the the more practical way. If you want something more classical take your time and watch something like this Harvard course. It gives you a good start in C, MySQL, Python and JavaScript. No PHP, but you will get it naturally when you'll start to do something with the best web CMF. You know, ProcessWire))
  10. Thanks for this blog post @ryan. The new features are coming at such a pace I sometimes only have time to get excited, but not to try them out. Those recommendations are really useful (at least to me). I would enjoy to read more about use cases for the newly added stuff.
  11. Maybe we could use some 3rd party php zip library for this? Not to deal with all those cross-platform issues...
  12. I can see you are concerned about ProcessWire project, as you speak so passionate @Donald. But I can't really get the point of all those posts. Let me guess: ProcessWire could have some better docs... Partly true, but it's getting better and the code is documented very well. Take a look. I also love Vue docs, but they are also not so helpful when you go from basic stuff to real projects. And as I see it PW is more complicated and has way more stuff to document. And new features are coming more often. ProcessWire will never beat Vue on github stars... I think so too, but not really due to lack of documentation. You think that this topic will not help PW get too much stars... Partly true, but anything is better than nothing. You want to get paid modules for free... I also sometimes think that donation based support could be better for the PW development. But it is not our decision and might not work as well here. You suggest to buy stars for ProcessWire github repo... Ryan will not do it for sure. Neither will I. If you got some money to spend it is up to you to try it, but I don't not feel like it is up with the ProcessWire spirit, if you will. Anyway, wanted to share my experience here on the forums. Being gentle always paid out better for me than being provocative)) P.S. The reply is to some posts that were probably removed by either the author or moderators. I did not actually see anything bad about them. But maybe some trolling was reasonably stopped by some good censors)
  13. Cool stuff @ryan! Are there any chances this could be implemented for Table and TableRows? Would be great to have it there too.
  14. Once upon a time the official PW Repo had way more stars on Github. But as @ryan values customer satisfaction over some abstract regalia like numbers stored in Github database (read the whole story here), they got kind of lost (actually not really lost - they are still present, but lost for the marketing purposes). I guess we could have something about one thousand now if this would be dealt differently . But that is old story. Personally I am visiting https://github.com/trending regularly to see what's going on in the open source world. And stars is what makes me see something. So I am 100% for this @adrian's initiative. And one forum post is not enough for success. At least placing Github star buttons all over the main site and forum and in the sticky top banner somewhere would help. Maybe we could ask @Pete to help here? As I understand from years being here @ryan is expecting ProcessWire to "market itself". But as community is part of PW, us marketing PW is kind of PW marketing itself anyways . So let's attract as much stars as we can to make the real star CMS get a primetime!
  15. Good day, @flydev! I am trying to transfer my work (done locally on windows 10) to a production linux server. But after package got extracted with the installer, I got this instead of the file structure; (filenames = what should be paths) When manually extracting I get the same result. It seems like archiving does not work as expected on windows. Am I doing something wrong, forgetting something?
