  1. Fantastic work Jonathan, you should be very proud of this project!
  2. I'm looking forward to using your module Bernhard. I have written an application in ProcessWire over the past year, and 3 months into development I started kicking myself for not starting from a multi-site perspective. Now with this I can see a solid workflow for migrations whilst benefiting from keeping users locked in their own instances. Having now read the docs I'm keen to try it out with a single new feature that will require several templates, fields and pages!
  3. I really like your implementation of ingredients as pages, as well as the structure of your recipe template - I've not yet brought RepeaterMatrix into my workflow but now feel I may have wasted a lot of time not doing so! You mentioned a little about SEO text and the first thing that struck me when browsing the recipes is that unlike most recipe blogs the ingredients and recipe is the priority. So many food blogs force you to scroll through walls of text to get to the recipe. I understand it's for SEO, reducing bounce rate and creative writing - but most don't even provide an anchor to the recipe! Great work and I imagine you had a lot of fun building it.
  4. Hello, I've been adapting Soma's great Page Edit Soft Lock module for a project that keeps trusted users editing in the front-end. This works great for the Dialogue editor as it hooks to 'ProcessPageEdit::execute', as in the example below: As well as the dialogue editor, I use inline editing for several CKEditor fields, e.g.: <div edit="events"> <!-- code to output events --> </div> Is there any way to hook into inline editing? Thanks!
  5. This module is 8 years old and it still works beautifully. Kudos Soma!
  6. Thanks for the module PWaddict, very useful for my current use case. I'm building a site with numerous roles, none of which have access to the admin panel as everything is done through the API and front-end editing. I had to enable view access for some templates, so the only 'look-in' to the top level page tree is through a trusted user adding a link in CKEditor fields. It's nice to have a module that focuses simply on the main page tree, so I can still define page reference fields for hidden templates where the role still has view access, and they display fine.
  7. If I'm reading this right, you can do this by creating a page reference and specifying "template=repeater_yourfield". You should be fine in terms of access, but you will want to test using their role if they aren't superusers. If the select box is blank for the user you can use a custom find for the page reference and add 'include=all' or check permissions.
  8. Hello all, I'm having an issue with allowing front-end edit of Users for a non-superuser role. It's an 'administrator' role with most permissions, however it's locked out of the administration panel (aside from through modals and ajax). I've created the appropriate permissions for the user to edit users (under specific roles). If I turn off the redirect out of the admin, the user can view and modify users, yet the edit modal does not open in the front-end. This isn't an issue for the Superuser, and the modal opens fine. Anyone had this issue? Thanks! Edit: On further inspection, I can even access the modal directly in the browser at a URL like the one below: /admin/access/users/edit/?id=1040&fields=display_name,email,user_inactive,photo,bio,location,user_phone&modal=1 It seems the front-end modal just will not trigger, can't see anything in the console either.
  9. This is a fun, simple project I built over the holidays and really goes back to what initially drew me to ProcessWire several years ago after being inspired by Ryan's Skyscrapers Demo. Backwards Compatible allows searching and browsing by various performance related tags and game pages display detailed data on each title. List of modules used: Import Pages by CSV - Essential for this kind of site, the vast majority of data was imported in one CSV upload Procache - Invaluable after an influx of 650k page views in 6 days(!) Form Builder - A simple implementation for monitored page updates and YT video submissions Soma's AjaxSearch Mike Rockett's Sitemap Additional styles/scripts: Bootstrap Grid only for CSS Fancybox.js Tippy.js Commento
  10. Thanks for a great module Teppo. I don't suppose anyone has had success recording version control changes with front-end inline editing? I'm using inline editing on a personal project with just one specific field which is a large textarea (the rest use dialogue editor - works great). Edit: Silly me, Version Control changes are indeed recorded with in-line editing. The field is within a repeater, so the front-end editor only saves changes to the repeater ID. It's still saved to the appropriate Version Control database tables.
  11. Are you using PHP 7 or above? '??' is a null coalescing operator added in PHP 7.
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
