  1. Wow thanks everyone who contributed to this overnight! @PWaddict, that bank site is awesome. Thanks for the link @kongondo, we'll definitely check that out, and search for university. The security info is really useful, and obviously a very important consideration. Thanks also for the tip about the password recovery @heldercervantes! Thanks @rafaoski for those links! I totally agree @maxf5, and having done a couple of personal sites in PW, I know exactly what you mean about working with it being addictive! I've also sent an email off to Ryan asking if he can name any major companies using PW, so we'll see what he comes back with.
  2. Thanks @szabesz, I hadn't seen that thread but I'll share it with the others in the web team! Thanks to you and @DaveP for the links to the site categories as well. We have had a bit of a look through those and will continue to do so. I guess we were hoping we might unearth some additional ones. Yes, it's good in a way that PW doesn't advertise itself all over your source code, but at the same time it makes it hard to figure out just how many people are using it! I'd love to know what some of those major sites are. I wonder if Ryan would be able to tell me if I asked him...
  3. Hi psy, Thanks! Do you have any Australian site(s) that you've worked on that you're able to share?
  4. Hi Mike, Thanks, I think you're exactly right. Hopefully we can be the first to lead the way! (Though I still hope there might be someone out there already...) Even examples of large sites, regardless of their type could be helpful. I've told our web manager about Ryan's Villas of Distinction site as I read it had about 5000 URLs at launch. Or if any Australian users/developers/sites could make themselves known that may help too. I know there are 4 Aussie developers listed in the directory. Are there any more of you out there? In fact, any Australian government site, even if small, if one exists, would be good to add to our list. Fingers crossed!
  5. Hi, I apologise if this is the wrong forum for this question but I wasn't sure where else to put it. I work for the web team at an Australian government agency. We're currently evaluating a replacement CMS and we're really keen to use ProcessWire (I've used it for a couple of personal sites myself). There is a huge push from above to remain consistent with the majority of the Australian government and use one of the big name CMSs. We have tested this big name CMS and it really isn't suited to our needs. Our site is large and has a deep hierarchy (plus we have a number of other smaller sites as well). If we are forced to use the big name CMS, we have concerns about it functioning correctly, being easy for editors, and its performance. The executive are asking for more justification, documentation and proof as to why we should use a different CMS. I'm hoping that perhaps some people might be able to provide us with some example sites - especially government, or universities/museums/libraries, or any other institution with a large site that utilises a fairly deep hierarchy. If it's Australian that's even better. We are working our way through the Showcase section of the forum and the Sites list, but so far haven't found anything that is a really large website that is also government or similar. Plus I thought there might be some sites out there that have not been submitted. So if you know of a site that fits the bill please let me know (or feel free to PM me if there's some reason you can't share it widely). I really appreciate this. We don't have the date of the next executive meeting yet, but we may have to present something quite soon and we need to be ready. Thanks, Margaret
  6. Ok, thanks Robin!
  7. Hi, I've just installed the Hanna Code module. I wanted to try it out first with something simple - using something like [[title]] to easily insert the current page's title in a textarea. However, when I try to add a new Hanna Code, if I choose the PHP option, I get a 403 error whenever I hit save. Could there be a permission I need to change somewhere? Please help! Thanks, Margaret PS. I'm running PW 3.0.62 EDIT: Never mind, it's now working. I'm not entirely sure how, but I got it to work. For the benefit of any other newcomers who might experience a similar issue in the future... First I created a Text/HTML Hanna Code called figurename and just made it output <strong>Boo!</strong>. It let me save it and it worked on my page. I then edited that code by changing it to PHP - it let me save. I then changed the code to echo $page->title and it let me save again. It now works! I did notice when I initially tried to set up the PHP one it included the opening php tag in the code window, but when I changed the Text one to be PHP that opening tag was omitted. I did a test by adding it back in and once again got the 403 error when I tried to save. Maybe it's something different in 3.0+, but evidently you can no longer include <?php, even though in the Hanna Code usage notes it says "you may use them when/if necessary".
  8. Hi Robin, Thanks for that. I did wonder if Ryan would be the best person to answer but I wasn't sure if I should contact him directly. I'll definitely try that. Cheers, Margaret
  9. Hi, We're currently evaluating ProcessWire for use in an enterprise setting (I've been using it for some personal sites for a while and I love it). One of our key requirements is good control over user access, draft/live capabilities, and the ability to implement workflow. If we decide to go ahead with PW then we would purchase ProDrafts, but we can't test it out so I just have a few questions: Is the drafts list visible to any user or only to superusers? I've read on the roadmap that workflow is going to be added to ProDrafts. Is there any timeline at all on that? Are you able to give me any idea whether its weeks or months away, or whether it will even definitely occur within 2017? If/when workflow is added will that mean you can allow users to edit an already published page in draft, but not republish it (or is this already possible?). Thank you! Margaret
  10. Thanks Dave. I did manage to install some modules by using the zip upload option, so at least that's something! However, as this is being assessed for potential use in an enterprise setting, I'm hoping someone might be able to give us a hand actually fixing the issue? If it is indeed caused by the fact that we are behind a proxy (which is almost certainly the issue), then our concern is that we could encounter other errors in the future. Anyone? Cheers, Margaret
  11. Hi, I'm new to the forums, but I've been using PW for some personal sites for a while - I love it. We are now evaluating PW (amongst some other CMS's) for use at my workplace. So far it's running beautifully using NGINX, but unfortunately if we try to add modules from the directory we get an error. Our organisation sits behind a proxy, so we suspect it's a proxy error related to trying to access an external site. This is the error when using module class name: Session: Error retrieving data from web service URL - 2: fsockopen(): unable to connect to modules.processwire.com:80 (Connection refused), 111: Connection refused This is the error when trying to add the module from a URL: Session: File could not be downloaded (https://github.com/formmailer/SchedulePages/zipball/master) 2: fsockopen(): unable to connect to ssl://github.com:443 (Connection refused), 111: Connection refused (tried: fopen, socket) My manager (our web manager) has set the HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY environment variables, but that hasn't helped. Is there some other configuration setting we're missing? Could it be a PHP thing? Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks, Margaret
