  1. Exciting time, congrats on the success of your previous project and starting this new project. I don't know if I can point to any pitfalls that are specific to processwire but more in relation to site structure as Processwire is extremely forgiving when it comes to adapting to various uses. I suppose that I would mainly focus on your layout as you would normally but take note on how you want to relate all of your items to one another and how you are going to present these items to your editors in a way that they can keep the site up to date reliably. In dealing with a product site you will want to be mindful of the items that you have on your site making sure that your structure doesn't create any bad habits in the people that update the site, like allowing editors to create duplicate items in different parts of your site and such. I have to say though I know I thought similarly as you when I started a smaller sized site that I may need to use something like elastic search to search my site, but actually quickly abandoned this after I found the cache field. Using this field, add all the fields that you want to be searchable in a more general search, and then if you want to have a more granular product search, you can jump into the bread and butter of Processwire and search the fields specifically and sort the items as needed. I power my whole site off just the cache field and text searches. You can build a couple of these to handle different item types and just perform a search on a field directly without having to join all of the fields, this can really speed up your searches. Interested to see how this progresses and hope you keep us updated on your progress
  2. Hey there @arjen totally forgot about this question, I did end up finding that thing and am now happily using it to keep an eye on changes. Super helpful module!
  3. Hey man, love this module! This data has helped me many times. I was wondering though as I have been querying against this data in the database if you had any plan to add any other search options. I have had the need to find changes on individual items and being able to insert a text string for a field could be super helpful.
  4. I like this post, could be a really cool experiment. You could also use a php based ssh client to connect your machines and execute some scripts / bootstrap processwire via shell. You could then use ssh keys to secure your connection. Even going further you could do something on your server to limit your ssh connections of this user to one ip. What did you end up doin bernhard?
  5. That is a great idea! Thank you kongondo I will tinker with this this afternoon. Awesome looking module!!
  6. Good call! I will give this a go Thanks for the recommendation.
  7. Hey guys, just working on beefing up a admin view and was wondering if anyone had already made a module that computes its value based on a computation of other fields. I would like to run some math on several fields to deal with deducting and computing taxes based on several other fields on a form and thought this could make a pretty slick module. Most simply what I would like is a field that is only used on edit views which allows me to do something as simply as (field1 + field2) / field3. Possibly something that can be customized on each template or the like.
  8. Yeah this is doable I suppose but Robin does have a good point, this could add some time to your queries as they would be saving the data to the same database that you are querying. You may want to look into something so that you can track analytics on the terms that you are tracking. I have used piwik in the past for this and google analytics also has a really great method of logging this. One other method if you just want a log would be to use the processwire $log variable to save a log of the term to a log file. https://processwire.com/api/variables/log/ If you want to save to a page you can do this (just stole this from an old post by soma so I don't have to type): $p = new Page(); // create new page object $p->template = 'page'; // set template name here $p->parent = $pages->get('/search-terms/'); // set the parent $p->name = 'mynewpage_url'; // give it a name used in the url for the page $p->title = 'My New Page'; // set page title (not neccessary but recommended) $p->save(); To use mail just read about wiremail
  9. Hey that is really cool then you don't have to hack your .htaccess
  10. Well I found another and they have the project which you can run locally https://github.com/justincavery/am-i-responsive/ I had to remove the SAMEORIGIN header from xampp but it worked locally.
  11. I just used it on one site I made and it worked, but for some reason a lot of the big name sites I input it fails. I wonder if it relies on a server being permissive. Weird I found one site that works and it just happens to be one of mine https://www.davidsongalleries.com maybe the site is just slow
  12. Found one site that will do it http://techsini.com/multi-mockup/index.php

    Thanks SiNNut. Yeah I am aware of some new smartphone issues. I was in a mad dash to get it finished over the weekend and didn't take the time to wiggle it around. Thanks for the reminder interesting about the home page overflow issue, must have missed a tag somewhere:)

    I am happy to share a project. Just threw the switch the other day on https://www.davidsongalleries.com I built this site a couple years ago but am always adding something. Now we have sales using padloper!
  15. ACK I'll be damned that is exactly what it was, deleted the closing ?> and all is well. Figured the compiler would pick something like that up. Thanks dude!
