  1. Oh funny, thanks. That's a pretty clever way to manage the configuration. So in case anyone else is wondering, it seems you can either add a namespace to your template files or just set $config->templateCompile to false in config.php. I do wonder what the implications are for either choice, or how future-proof it is to set this to false instead of adding the namespace.
  2. Hi all, Am I correct in remembering that adding a namespace statement to the top of every template file will prevent the file compilation process from needing to run during a 2.x to 3.x upgrade? I had attempted this same upgrade previously on a site with many pages, but the upgrade seemed to fail. However, afterwards I realized it may have been the delay in compiling files rather than a failure of the upgrade. So I'd like to avoid the compilation process if possible. Thank you for any tips! --Marc
  3. Hi everyone, I'm having an issue where a selector doesn't seem to be working properly with page->closest. Here is the code: // Look for the closest page with any social URLs filled in $page_with_socials = $page->closest("extra_url_1|url_5|extra_url_2|extra_url_3|extra_url_4!=''"); if ( $page_with_socials->id ) { // We found a page with social fields containing some URL content $social_config = $page_with_socials; } else { // Fallback: Use home page social URLs // This is used every time extra_url_1 is empty, even if the other URL fields are filled out $social_config = $homepage; } Instead of checking the various fields, the selector is treated like it only says this: $page_with_socials = $page->closest("extra_url_1!=''"); In other words, it's like the other fields aren't even checked for content. If url_5 is filled in, or not, it doesn't matter. The else-fallback is always used as long as the other field, extra_url_1, is empty. So I'm wondering--do I need to change the way I'm using the pipes in my selector or something? Thanks for any tips.
  4. diogo, these are great ideas. Thank you. I really like the pipe-separated version and it would seem to fit great, so I'll give that a go. Thanks again.
  5. Hi everyone, I set up a simple Hanna Code button snippet for a project, like this: [[special_button url='example.com' label='Visit Example.com']] The client is using it actively and have asked for a side-by-side version, where two buttons will be next to one another. In this case, they are requesting this because the URL varies depending on where the website user lives--County A or County B. Any thoughts about how to implement this? Which HTML structure would you prefer for the columns, keeping in mind this is user-editable content? Would you alter the Hanna Code at all? I'm not used to using Hanna Code and layout options together, in a textarea like the Body field, so I thought I'd ask. Thanks!
  6. Was there a field or Profield that could help site editors design pages? I thought I saw something like this a few years ago: Editors can choose from specified types of page layout elements while editing the page (For example--gallery, 1-column text, 3-column text, news items, etc.) Rearrange these elements Duplicate the elements Is there something like this? Thanks in advance.
  7. Terrific. Thanks Robin, both of those seem like excellent options.
  8. I have a bunch of events in the back end of a site which are sorted by date, and wondered if it's also possible to sort them by title within the date selection, for example using a "sort=date,sort=title" selector. In this way, an event called "A Day for Children" would show up before "Zero Hour" if they're on the same day. I tried to make this change in the parent template's Family tab, under "Sort settings for children," however I don't see a way to use multiple sorting criteria. Is this possible somehow? The site is currently running 2.8.62. Thanks!
  9. Hi everybody, I am updating a PW site that has been migrated away from another vendor. The old URLs had a prefix-segment like /page/ in front of blog posts. Here is the rule I created in PW's .htaccess: RewriteRule ^page/blog/(.*)$ blog/$1 [R=301,QSA] Within the .htaccess, this is placed before another, working, rule, and below the directives to enable mod_rewrite. Can anyone see a reason why this would not be doing anything? If I go to example.com/page/blog/blah I still get a 404 page instead of being redirected to example.com/blog/blah. Thanks!
  10. Hi Sergio, yes, it is on the same server. Do you know of any code examples for doing this? I've used the API for mostly basic things, so if there's a skeleton example available that'd be helpful. I'm excited to hear it's possible.
  11. I am in the process of upgrading an older PW website, say www.example.com. At new.example.com I have an upgraded version, but now the client needs to make content changes on the old site, like 15-20 pages added per day. How can I most easily move these pages over from the old site to new.example.com, when other people are already making new pages at new.example.com? Thanks!
  12. I created the following CKEditor plugin to insert some Hanna Code, and it just does not want to show up on the editor toolbar, despite being activated in the field settings along with PWImage, etc. /site/modules/InputFieldCKEditor/plugins/loopvideo/plugin.js: CKEDITOR.plugins.add( 'loopvideo', { icons: 'loopvideo', init: function( editor ) { editor.addCommand( 'insertLoopvideo', { exec: function( editor ) { editor.insertText( '[[loopvideo id="pvLa9DPgJVc" loop="1" volume="100"]]' ); } }); editor.ui.addButton( 'Loop Video', { label: 'Insert Looping Video', command: 'insertLoopvideo', toolbar: 'tools' }); } }); Screenshots of the input configuration for the field "body": Input configuration screenshot 1 Input configuration screenshot 2 I've also verified that I have icons in place for this plugin under loopvideo/icons/ Any ideas of what to check next? Or a way to troubleshoot this? I don't get any JS errors on the page where the Body field's CKEditor is running. Thanks!
  13. I changed the parameters for an image->size() operation on a site I'm running, and due to a loose pulley somewhere in the server, I now have a bunch of broken image icons in the website, where the thumbnail images should be. What's the best way to reset these--to start the resizing & caching operation again? I tried deleting one of the images from its folder in /site/assets/ but that didn't seem to do anything. I also tried resetting ProCache by saving a page. No change. I thought about changing the dimensions by one pixel but that seems kind of lame. Thanks!
