  1. I had the same issue and this seemed to fix it. What is this function?
  2. You nailed it. It's an old site (one of my first ever with pw), and I wasn't rendering the URLs correctly. It works now. Thanks a lot for your help, wbnjfktr (whatever that means). ?
  3. Yes, I did. "en" and "de". But the names of the languages (under "languages") are "default" and "deutsch". But as far as I know, they don't have to (can't) be the same?
  4. Hi, I've just setup a website to multiple languages, and I have to say, it's very straight forward and quickly done! But still I'm not sure I understand the process correctly. I have the module "Languages Support - Page Names" installed. I can view all pages either in DE or EN, and I'm using this piece of code as a language switcher (from the introduction page): // remember what language is set to $savedLanguage = $user->language; foreach($languages as $language) { // if user is already viewing the page in this language, skip it if($language->id == $savedLanguage->id) continue; // if this page isn't viewable (active) for the language, skip it if(!$page->viewable($language)) continue; // set the user's language, so that the $page->url and any other // fields we access from it will be reflective of the $language $user->language = $language; // output a link to this page in the other language echo "<li><a href='$page->url'>$language->title: $page->title</a></li>"; } // restore the original language setting $user->language = $savedLanguage; It works for the current page, but as soon as i click on any link, the language switches back to default (in my case german). My question is, do I need to update all URLs in the template files? I thought that the language switcher updated the language in the session and kept it this way… Could you give me light? Thanks
  5. Yes, I'm aware of that. That's my issue. That's what I get with sharpening set on SOFT. Are the core rendering engines just not that good?
  6. HI, Has anyone encountered quality issues with the croppable module? I know I'm very picky when it comes to image quality, but I'm getting pretty bad results and I'm wondering what i can do about it. I've tried no sharpening, sharpening soft, quality 90 and 80, but the images still look "pixelated", specially in the diagonals. See screenshot attached. Original left, cropping on the right.
  7. Ok ok ok… You got me curious, I'll try out your module ;-) I was reluctant to use it since I only need the first page of each PDF, but the PDFs I'm dealing with have 1-5 pages, so it's not likely going to take too much storage space. Will it work if placed in a repeater?
  8. A year and a half later, Soma saves my day. Again. And for the very same issue
  9. Hi Richard, I've tried out this module on version 2.6 and it works nicely! I've tried installing it in version 3.0 and had to restore the database from backup: I got error messages and couldn't reach the PDF-field anymore. The information about compatibility is misleading: on the module page it says compatible with version 3.0, but later on it's stated <3.0. Too bad I can't used it now, I liked it a lot! Thanks.
  10. Yep. Just what i was dreading: I installed the module and it's not compatible with version 3.0. Now I can't delete the field that cause the issue, and I can't get rid of the module since it's used by a field… PS: I could restore from backup. I'll inform the compatibility issue in the right forum.
  11. I haven't tested the module yet. True, I missed the compatibility part. It says somewhere below: Requirements: Processwire >=2.5 <3.0 That's what threw me off. I guess the text isn't quite up to date… I'll give it a try now. Thanks for your help.
  12. I could run two fields (PDF & JPEG) in a repeater, that might do the job. It's only a matter of compatibility with the latest PW version.
  13. Thanks Adrian. Yes, I looked into the module "Filetype-pdf", but there are two issues for me. First, it's not supported in the current Processwire version (>3.0). Second, my field has both Jpegs and PDFs, and this module only accepts PDFs into the field. That's why i was looking for a simple code to do the job.
  14. Hi, I can't get this script to work. I'm simply trying to generate the first page of a PDF from a file fieldtype. I keep getting an error message like this: "Error: Exception: Unable to read the file: …". The path to the PDF seems correct to me. foreach($page->datei as $publikation){ if($publikation->ext === "pdf"){ $file = $publikation->url; $im = new Imagick(); $im->setResolution(300, 300); $im->readImage($file . '[0]'); $im->setImageFormat('jpg'); header('Content-Type: image/jpeg'); echo $im; } } Any idea what I'm doing wrong here? Thanks!
  15. Thanks Adrian! I don't know if you've solved Thomas' problem, but you hinted on mine ;-) Stupid mistake…
  16. I tested even without the repeater and I get similar errors. So I think we can leave the repeaters out of it. Permissions are OK. I tried to recreate the issue (can't tell yet exactly when it works and when not). I created 4 cropping-presets. These create the 4 croppings automatically. So far ok. When the user (whichever) creates a custom cropping, the new cropping doesn't overwrite the old one. Or I should rather say, sometimes it does, but most of the times it doesn't. Workaround is to delete the generated croppings in the "variations" window prior to creating a custom one. This works, but it's not a nice solution for the end user. Am I the first one reporting this bug? Thanks.
  17. Hi Horst, I've wrapped a repeater around my image and bullet selection (The user can thus choose which cropping to use). It works when I upload an image for the first time, it creates 4 standard croppings (panorama, portrait, etc.). However, if I make a custom cropping it doesn't save it. I'd actually want the custom cropping to overwrite other files, but that doesn't work either. Is there a known issue between croppable image 3 and repeaters? Should i use ProFields Repeater Matrix (haven't tried it so far). Pagetable is also a possibility, but not as intuitive and fast as a repeater. Thanks for your help! David
  18. I was also thinking about a repeater. Pagetable would also make sense I guess. Thanks Horst! I thought there might be a secret weapon I didn't know of
  19. Hey there, This module is great. Just wondering, what's the best way to have the user choose which cropping to use in the frontend? The way I understand the README file, the programmed template decides which cropping to use. But what if the user wants a vertical image for an image, and a panorama for another? Thanks for clarifying. PS: Currently working for architects, so I'm glad there are "serious" labels now too ;-)
  20. The issue is solved. I can't exactly tell what solved it, but i created a new image field, checked the thumbnail view button, and it worked perfectly. Then i disabled the thumbnail view of the field that caused the problem, tested it, then enabled it again, and now the thumbnail preview seems to work.
  21. Thank you flydev, I'll investigate further.
  22. But i've found this, maybe it has something to do with it: 2016-06-02 14:31:50 ERROR: Update #5 ERROR: Error updating status for: /admin/page/image/ - SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table 'A07-bas_sinfonietta.caches' doesn't exist I found it in the "system-updater.txt" after the upgrade to the latest PW-version. Apparently, a field is missing the table?
  23. Well… There's no code really: I haven't changed any setting in the backend. I've set the image field to display in thumbnails, that's it.
  24. Hi, I've recently upgraded a website to the latest version (2.7.2) and the image fields are not running properly. Seems like the ImageSizer isn't working anymore. There's a thread in the forums about that particular problem but it's a dead-end. Here's the error i got: ImageSizer::resize(0, 100) failed for [...]/site/assets/cache/WireTempDir/.PagefilesManager1984/1/numbers_layout.0x100.jpg Can anyone help me with this? Thanks.
