  1. Excellent @bernhard! I would also buy a promodule, if it allowed the ability to have frontend pages.
  2. Done! I lost one image field (bummer) that was using the fieldtypeimageextra field. I discovered which field it was from the SQL database, but I couldn't change the image type in the admin interface because I kept getting an error. On the up side, the error messages are all gone and it looks like everything is working fine.
  3. Thanks for the speedy and helpful replies @kixe, @Macrura and @adrian! @adrian great thinking! I am embarrassed to admit I don't know where to find my modules database table. It doesn't seem to be in site/modules or wire/modules folders. Could you point me in the right direction?
  4. Hi @Macrura Yes, modules all refreshed. The challenge is that I do not have any fields that use the fieldtypeimageextra - so I don't know what to change to make the message go away. The site is live. Since I've got so much working in the 3.0.53 version, I'm tempted to keep trying a little bit more before downgrading. But I will downgrade if I can't work out how to add new pages soonish. Oh! And I've removed 'pages2pdf' from all pages too.
  5. After being gently reminded by @adrian here, I recently updated my site from the 2.6.5 to 3.0.53 version of Processwire. I followed the instructions to refresh my admin view repeatedly, and got many messages about modules being updated. Since updating, I have been getting the following errors: 1. Fieldtypeimageextra: the following persistent error code at the top of my admin view: I followed instructions on the FieldtypeImageExtra github page to delete the FieldtypeImageExtra module on my server, and installed the replacement Image Extra module. But I'm not sure what else to do to remove the error. Does anyone have some ideas on how to fix this? 2. Not able to create new pages When I try to publish a new page, I get the following error: Even though no errors are listed on the page - except for the fieldtypeimageextra error - and all required fields have been completed. 3. Error when adding a link in the rich text editor When trying to add a link in the rich text editor I get this error: I'm happy to go in to the code and look at line 374, but I'm wondering: Is there is anything else I should do in the admin panel, or with code on my sites's templates or modules in general, after updating from 2.6.5 to prevent these kind of errors continuing to arise? Or is it such a big problem to update from 2.6.5 to 3.0.53 that I should restore 2.6.5 and then update PW incrementally (ie 2.6.8 then 2.7 then 2.9 etc)?
  6. Ah ok, mystery solved. Thanks for the help Adrian! This shows how I have been neglecting my processwire install for some time. Looking forward to enjoying all the improvements after updating!
  7. There is no 'repeater item labels' section on my details tab. See below - these are the only two options I see above the 'save' button at the end of the screen: I'm using Processwire version 2.6.5 dev. Could the setting you mention only appear in a more recent version of Processwire?
  8. Hi @adrian Thanks for your quick reply. As you see, my repeater is called lesson_plan_section and has a label title of 'section'. Ideally, I would like the label text box to be able to take and process some code that says 'get text entry from the field within the repeater called "subject" and add it here'. Here is my template 'class.php', where I have the repeater field 'lesson plan section'. As you see, each of the repeaters has a name of section #1, section #2 etc. I reguarly work with 20 sections, and the numbers are an unintuitive and awkward way to remember which section is which. This is why I'm looking for a more user friendly solution. Unfortunately, my php skills are beginner, so I have no idea where to start in terms of hacking a solution for myself.
  9. Hi @adrian No. I currently use that, and it is frustrating, leading me to ask my question. What I want is something that will change the label on the field to the text entry of a specific field within my repeater. So when I create a new repeater, and there is a field called 'Title' within the repeater, once I enter text into the title field (for examples sake, let's say I title my repeater 'Introductory Exercise' and click 'save' on the page, the title of the repeater field in the header bar would change to 'Introductory Exercise'.
  10. Very nice! Do you think it is feasible to use this - or a future version - on the front end?
  11. Does anyone know if this possible yet? Ideally, I would like to select the text entry of a specific field within my repeater to appear as the label for each repeater section. Any clues as to how to do this through the GUI greatly appreciated!
  12. Hi all I am having trouble getting some conditional text to appear based on the presence of a child page with a particular template. Based on this thread, I have used this code: $childCount = $page->children("template=studentwork_example"); if ($childCount >= 1) {$example = "<h2>Examples of Student Work</h2> <p>Click on any of the images below to see a full example of Parts A and B of the Challenge.</p>";} else {$example = $nbsp;} The result is that when there is a child page, it looks like this: But when there is no child, the conditional text still displays, like this: Earlier, I also tried this code, with the same result: if ($page->child) {$example = "<h2>Examples of Student Work</h2> <p>Click on any of the images below to see a full example of Parts A and B of the Challenge.</p>";} I have added the template selector in my most recent code example (the first one) because I eventually will have multiple child pages using different templates. My question is: Can someone tell me why my conditional text $example is showing up on all pages using this template, irrespective of whether the page has a child page using the template 'studentwork_example'? Where am I going wrong? Thanks for reading!
  13. @macrura and @horst, thank you! Although it is not necessary to use both your suggestions, I have. To satiate my curiosity. @Jan Romero, you are correct. When it comes to php I am a bit of a bush mechanic. I am learning in a traditional Australian way. Thank you again to all of you. One of the things I enjoy most about PW is the supportive and encouraging community.
