  1. There's no special setting for the number of page links between the ellipses, but how many appear there is determined by the numPageLinks setting, which as I understand it should control how many extra page numbers appear in addition to the first and last page numbers. So you'd expect that a numPageLinks setting of 3 would achieve what you want, but it seems buggy: Why is the current page the last number and not the middle number? Why are there only two numbers here instead of three? Likewise here - why aren't there three numbers in addition to the first and last numbers? Why does the second page look like this... ...but the second to last page look like this... ? If you want to have a go at fixing it the relevant code is in PagerNav::getPager().
  2. To test the explode() method you would dump its return value (an array):
  3. No, I don't think the module sets page titles. I was expecting something similar using the core "Name format for children" feature, but if you want to automatically set a title you have to use a hook. It's discussed in the topic below:
  4. Hi @ryan, Thanks for the update. The section 15B update to .htaccess is nice. I'm keen to enable that on my sites as it's a good bit of extra security. But I just want to check: does this blocking only apply to files that are accessed directly by the browser and not those served by PW via $files->send()? Because on several sites I offer downloads of a set of CSV files that I build and bundle into a ZIP file on-the-fly. I create the ZIP in a WireTempDir and then send the file for download via $files->send(). So would this be affected by section 15B? I did a quick test and it seems to work okay but just want to confirm that I don't need to adjust that section of .htaccess to allow WireTempDir paths.
  5. Thanks @teppo. I'm going to spend some time exploring Wireframe to see how it feels compared to my existing approach - I may yet become a convert ๐Ÿ™‚. Thanks again for creating this tool and doing such a great job on the documentation website.
  6. I discovered Wireframe on Sunday after exploring the GitHub repo for the ProcessWire Composer Installer project that you mentioned in the latest PW Weekly. The documentation you've written for Wireframe is just awesome ๐Ÿ‘ - engaging, comprehensive and clear. I have a short question and a long question... Does it make sense to use Wireframe together with Markup Regions in any way, or would a developer choose Wireframe or Markup Regions but not both? The long question relates to what you said here: I take this to be a reference to the superiority of a MVC approach versus the "default" approach of mixing business logic and UI logic together in a PW template file. I'd like to hear more of your views on this because you didn't talk about it much in the documentation, probably because MVC and the separation of concerns is discussed in plenty of other places around the web. But I was wondering if you think a MVC approach is always the way to go, or if is something you would weigh up the pros and cons of taking into account the parameters of each specific project, e.g. the scale and complexity of the project, if a team will be working on the project, etc. Personally I use Markup Regions and don't use any separation of business logic and UI logic into different files or folders. From time to time I think about changing to an MVC approach because so many people seem to recommend it, but when I weigh it up I don't see enough advantage versus disadvantage for the kinds of projects I work on. But maybe I'm overlooking something so I'd appreciate your comments. The main benefits of MVC as I understand it are... 1. If you have a team of people working on a project, maybe with different skill sets (e.g. a front-end dev and a back-end dev), then it lets each person focus on the parts that matter to them. For example the front-end person can focus on the view file without having to see any business logic which might distract or even be unintelligible to them. This totally makes sense to me and if I worked as part of a team this by itself would make an MVC approach worthwhile. But in my case I do everything alone from start to finish - design, front-end, back-end. 2. The business logic doesn't "belong" in the same file as the markup - it's better to keep it separate and it makes it easier to update a site. This seems more contentious to me, and perhaps depends on how much business logic there is. If I have some variable that I'm using within the markup I find it very handy to have the definition/construction of that variable present alongside its usage in output. So I'm not left wondering "what was it that I put into $related_products?" and needing to navigate to some other file to find out. Now if there were heaps of business logic it might start to feel like clutter within the markup, but when I look at the template files for my projects in most cases there's actually very little business logic present. Maybe that's partly because PW is quite elegant in that you can do a lot with a few lines of code, and partly because most of my projects are not very complex. But even if I do have a lot of business logic I find that placing it at the top of the template file is no problem at all. If I need to work on it I'd rather just scroll up than open another file, and I can use my IDE to collapse any blocks of code that I don't need to focus on. Would you say that MVC is an approach that is more suited to complex projects rather than simple ones? Things like layouts and partials that are offered through Wireframe are cool, but those are also possible with Markup Regions (layout = _main.php) and built-in PW methods (partials = $files->render). I have no doubt that Wireframe is a powerful tool, but do you see it as being the right solution for all projects or just some projects?
  7. @Torsten Baldes, there has been an @todo note about adding OR-group support to InputfieldSelector since 2016. Seeing as Ryan has been doing some work on InputfieldSelector recently it might be timely to open a request for this in the requests repo to bring it back to his attention. ๐Ÿ™‚
  8. Try: // Get names of fields on the page that are tagged with "custom" $custom_field_names = $page->fields->find('tags=custom')->explode('name'); // Do something with the values of those fields foreach($custom_field_names as $custom_field_name) { echo $page->$custom_field_name; }
  9. @jonassalen, open the ProcessSetupPageName.module file in your code editor and try replacing this section at the top of the createFromFormat() method... if ($languageID == null && $this->languageSupport == true) $languageID = $this->wire('languages')->getDefault()->id; $langID = $this->wire('languages')->get($languageID)->isDefault()? null : $languageID; if ($this->languageSupport) { $userLang = $this->wire('user')->language; $this->wire('user')->language = $this->wire('languages')->get($languageID); } ...with... $langID = null; if ($this->languageSupport) { if ($languageID == null) $languageID = $this->wire('languages')->getDefault()->id; $langID = $this->wire('languages')->get($languageID)->isDefault()? null : $languageID; $userLang = $this->wire('user')->language; $this->wire('user')->language = $this->wire('languages')->get($languageID); }
  10. See ProcessWire::getHttpHost(). If PW cannot match a host in your $config->httpHosts array from PHP's predefined $_SERVER variable then it gives you the first item from $config->httpHosts.
  11. @horst, I have implemented your request in v0.1.1 as a separate autocomplete on the "Add Module From URL" field. See the updated readme for details.
  12. A recent answer to a similar question:
  13. That's because ultimately the references depend on the execution of the FieldtypePage::findReferences() method. This method has to be called for each page you want to get or count the references to. And so the number of references is not a simple value in the database that you can query in a $pages->find() selector the way a field value is. Enabling selectors that query or sort by the number of references is one of the motivations behind the Connect Page Fields module. If you use this module to create a two-way relationship between Page Reference fields then it's easy to write the selector you want. Note that you can set the visibility of a Page Reference field to hidden if you don't need to see it in Page Edit but only want to query it in selectors.
