  1. Are you using PHP 7 or above? '??' is a null coalescing operator added in PHP 7.
  2. Thanks Jonathan. This is actually the first version of the store outside of online marketplaces. I've had the misfortune of using WooCommerce in the past on a site with a large catalogue of products and variations, it wasn't the slightest bit enjoyable! The beauty of ProcessWire is that I could define the PW templates/fields around the existing data, whereas an off the shelf e-commerce product would have required everything to be re-structured to meet the criteria of what it defines a 'product' as, or otherwise rely on another third-party service like Zapier which becomes expensive when daily tasks run into the thousands and feels like an unnecessary step. I really buy into the separation of CMS and e-commerce, and ProcessWire is the perfect framework for that.
  3. We recently launched The Power Supply Shop, an e-commerce store built using a combination of ProcessWire and SnipCart. The site has in excess of 120,000 products and variations, making heavy use of page references as well as SnipCart's "any page can be a product" approach. The site pulls in its data from an external MS SQL database several times a day. At a glance, the site uses: ProCache - as well as WireCache for some heavy product listing pages (50k+) FormBuilder @adrian's Tracy Debugger A modified version of @Soma's Ajax Search @mtwebit's fantastic Tasker and DataSet modules. And that's about it on the module front. For other libraries we're only really using FancyBox.js for product galleries and Anchorific.js for guide pages. At present the site is geared towards the UK, but if and when this changes I'm looking forward to delving into multi-languages with ProcessWire, something I haven't really worked with yet!
  4. It's been a while, but I just wanted to follow up with you on a project that's now in its final stages and say dataset and tasker are really exceptional, powerful modules, and definitely up there as my favourites for ProcessWire. You really covered the edge cases with being able to set task dependencies, merge, overwrites etc, and while it took some time to get my head around I now have a system that calls multiple tasks every hour via cron for fresh data from a specific set of CSV files. Looking forward to hopefully working on another project that uses dataset/tasker!
  5. I had this issue and ultimately I did nail it down to issues with the webhost. They would cluster their clients MySQL databases based on the first letter of the URL. Domains I had beginning with 'S' or 'T' would constantly get this message, where others on 'Z' or 'Y' were unaffected... In a nutshell, do double check that it isn't your host. The error essentially means that ProcessWire cannot connect to the DB/that it's timed out.
  6. That is a real eye opener Pixrael and really puts it into perspective. Most of my clients who use a combination of PW/SnipCart are turning over much less, so at present it's an affordable solution. If I'm lucky enough to work with clients with that level of sales volume I'll no doubt be shying away from SnipCart. I understand they do offer some negotiation on fixed fees for high volume stores but they don't share publicly what kind of fee that might be.
  7. I absolutely love Snipcart. If the 2% fee isn't prohibitive, it makes building a completely bespoke e-commerce site with ProcessWire a breeze. I've spent the last couple of months working on one that pulls in a huge data feed from an Azure database each day and doesn't break a sweat. I do have a PadLoper developer licence and I used it for one project, but until the new version is released to test I would stick with SnipCart.
  8. Thanks for developing this module, my tests so far have been really positive. I'm developing a PW site that requires import and regular update of 100k+ pages and this will be invaluable. One question I have (if you have time) is around Page References. I'm unable to modify my source data, so have created a page reference and field that corresponds to that of the source data e.g. 'LED' which is ID 1137. My CSV has this 'LED' data, however when I import, I get this result: Processing data for field 'category'. Page selector @ field category: templates_id=50, has_parent=1110. Found referenced page 'First Category Item' for field 'category' using the selector 'templates_id=50, has_parent=1110'. Setting field 'category' = '1111'. Page ID 1111 (or First Category Item) is the first Category page. I've also tried setting the category to 1137 within the CSV file and get the same result. This is when using the below config: JSON{ "name": "Import", "input": { "type": "csv", "delimiter": ",", "header": 1, "limit": 10 }, "fieldmappings": { "model_id": 1, "title": 2, "category": 3 }, "pages": { "template": "model", "selector": "model_id=@model_id" } } The other two (text fields) work fine. Any advice would be appreciated! Edit: I've now found your reference to Page References in the Wiki that changes everything! The default for Page References is Title as you say. I've installed Autocomplete and it's working great. One task for later is figuring out the scheduling side of things. I did wonder, with Page References is it possible for pages to be automatically created if they don't already exist on import?
  9. Hi all, Is there any means to force MailGun as the wireMail 3rd party module? A few days ago one of my sites stopped sending WireMailSMTP e-mails (couldn't connect to smtp.mailgun.org). There'd been no changes but I took it as an opportunity to switch over to this MailGun module that I use on several sites. When I'm using either FormBuilder, or my own code with '$message = wireMail();' for example, it doesn't use the MailGun module. Instead it tries to send using standard Wiremail which is picked up both on wiremaillogger and in cPanel. I simply cannot get it to call MailGun. Has anyone had this issue? I'm running PHP 7.1. Thanks. EDIT: It seems the issue is caused by the WireMailBranding module I still had installed. Uninstalling the module fixed this. It was never marked as compatible with 3.0 but did work until I updated to the latest MailGun module. I'll look further into it and see if there's a simple fix.
  10. I appear to have it figured out, the registration form does not like Page Reference fields. It will accept the registration and send the confirmation code, however will always fail if the original registration form contained a page reference. Shame as my site relies on it quite heavily for the initial registration, so I will look into whether there's a workaround.
  11. Hi all, I'm having an issue with LoginRegister 0.0.2 I wonder if anyone can help with. I've used the module previously for 2 sites which work great and are well used, however I never needed the registration function for them and left this disabled, manually creating accounts. With a site I'm working on at the moment, the confirmation code e-mail sends after the registration is completed, however always returns with the message 'Unable to complete confirmation, please re-register and try again'. There have been no modifications to the 0.0.2 module code, however I have added several new fields which include a page reference, text and select fields. I understand this is most likely a session based issue, however I've tried incognito mode, Chrome with cache/cookies deleted and also Internet Explorer. Has anyone had this issue, or better yet a means to disable the session issue entirely (at the expense of some security), so users will be able to register on desktop and authenticate with their phones etc? Any advice appreciated!
  12. I don't know if this is the exact method used by the developer, but there is a tutorial for using the variations module with padloper here: https://variations.kongondo.com/demo/ It's a great looking site, and an awesome demonstration of some premium modules I'm looking to use in a new project. I'm glad you mentioned ProFields as that looks like a big time saver I was aware of but hadn't really looked into before. Best of luck to your colleague, I also have a colleague recently diagnosed and it's a horrible disease.
  13. ProcessWire will make you want to be, and then in a fairly short space of time become a developer. I've been using ProcessWire for a year now, and whilst I still haven't published any modules like the very talented people on this forum, I've more than tripled my clients, can take an idea to a working prototype stage in less than a week and honestly enjoy every minute I spend interacting with PW. My previous background was purely as a web designer, bespoke designs but using various modules and essentially piecing sites together as many do. I also started with a personal project to get my head around PW, it was essentially a membership based database where users could add 'titles' to their collection and share them with others, produce stats etc. I never finished it because I moved onto client work but it functions perfectly and was a great, pressure-free basis for learning PW. I did a bit of maintenance this evening on an old clients WordPress site, and it's just a bloated, illogical mess and just being logged in feels like a security risk. The other option you may want to consider is Laravel, which I started learning after picking up ProcessWire, but with having the CMS out of the box (plus a ton of other time saving benefits) means there's no real reason to use Laravel over PW.
  14. Fresh install of PW 3.0.62, I'm getting this error when installing the latest version of Recurme: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 262144 bytes) in /var/sites/t/X/public_html/wire/core/Modules.php on line 3921 Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 262144 bytes) in Unknown on line 0 Never seen this before and I'm a bit stumped... Any ideas? Edit: Increased memory limit with ini_set on the module to see where this goes and got a 30s execution time error. Can't figure this one out, there must be a loop somewhere as increasing that came back to a 800MB memory limit! Edit 2: Solved! I'll send you an e-mail with details.
  15. Thanks for the update @joshuag, great to see Recurme continue being updated. I haven't had opportunity to update my current installs yet, but have a new project Recurme would be ideal for.
