  1. $items = $pages->find("template=event_day, event_schedule.speakers={$page->id}");
    foreach($items as $item) {
    	foreach($item->event_schedule as $repeater_item) {
    		echo $repeater_item->event_title . '<br>';

    It will echo out all the repeaters for that page, even though the speaker is only in one of them? What's the point of the first portion ($items) if you have to make another exception to see if the speaker is in the second foreach loop?Apologies for perhaps not seeing the forest from the trees!

  2. I can't find anything specific in my searches, so I figured I would ask for some guidance!

    So I have a repeater field that I'm trying to search for outside a page. Here's my structure:

    • Home
      • Events (events template)
        • Event (event template)
          • Part One (event_day template)
            • Repeater (named event_schedule)
              • Event Start Date (event_start_date)
              • etc...
          • Part Two
          • etc...
      • Speakers (speakers template)

    So from the speakers template I'm trying to access the repeater with the following:

    $pages->find("template=event_day, event_schedule.speakers={$page->id}");

    How do I access the actual fields inside the repeater, for example, the above dumps the following, which is correct, just can't access the event_start_date field?


    Let me know if there's more info needed. Thank you!

  3. @gmclelland - That's odd, I just installed a fresh copy of TE Factory and TE Twig with the latest Twig Extensions and I get an internal server error; I disable the Twig Extensions, the site works fine - not sure how I could have messed up such a simple procedure, but I wouldn't put it past me! :)

  4. After some effort and endless searching for articles to lead me in the right direction, I'm stumped. I'm using Twig and have the following installed:

    • ProcessWire 3.0.98
    • Template Engine Factory 1.1.3
    • Template Engine Twig 1.1.0

    In ready.php, I've added the following code (which works wonderful without Twig)

    	$wire->addHookProperty('Page::summarize', function($event) {		
    		$fieldName = $event->arguments(0);
    		if(!$fieldName) throw new WireException("No field provided");
    		// get max length or use 300 as default if none provided
    		$maxLength = (int) $event->arguments(1);
    		if(!$maxLength) $maxLength = 300;
    		$page = $event->object;
    		$value = $page->get($fieldName);
    		if(!strlen($value)) {
    			// requested value is blank, nothing more to do
    			$event->return = '';
    		// get beginning of value, without any HTML in it (if any)
    		$value = mb_substr(strip_tags($value), 0, $maxLength);
    		// if output formatting on, make sure value is entity encoded
    		if($page->of()) $value = $event->sanitizer->entities1($value);
    		if(strlen($value) >= $maxLength) {
    			// limit length of returned value between words
    			// by truncating to the last space character
    			$value = substr($value, 0, strrpos($value, ' '));
    			// append an ellipsis to indicate there is more
    			$value .= '…';
    		$event->return = $value;

    In my news.php template file, I have the following:

      namespace ProcessWire;
      $results = $page->children("template=news, limit=10, sort=-created");

    And in news.html.twig I use something like this:

    {{ summarize('result.body', 500) }}

    Exception: Unknown "summarize" function. (in twig\site\assets\cache\FileCompiler\site\modules\TemplateEngineTwig\TemplateEngineTwig.module line 94)

    So far Processwire is awesome, I'm loving it!

  5. This is not working for me! I'm using the following:

    • Template Engine Factory 1.1.3
    • Template Engine Twig 1.1.0

    I get this error:

    User Error Exception: An exception has been thrown during the compilation of a template ("Object of class Twig_Source could not be converted to string") in {}. (in C:\MAMP\htdocs\twig\site\assets\cache\FileCompiler\site\modules\TemplateEngineTwig\TemplateEngineTwig.module line 94)

    Since I'm new to PW, I'm afraid I can't be much help!
