  1. I've realised what was causing it: It is down to the map-view template being set to not have a slash at the end. If I change this it works. So when it was /maps/submit/test-map and you log in it goes to /maps/submit but when I set it to /maps/submit/test-map/ and you login it, it stays on /maps/submit/test-map/. Is this a bug and, if not, how can I use URLs with no slash to redirect in this way? In this instance, it doesn't matter as it makes no difference to have a slash at the end. I just wondered really whether it was a limitation, bug or feature as I do like to display homogeneous pages without slashes. I know you can pass the page ID to /processwire/ and then, I guess, use hooks to redirect to the page but wondered if it really required hooks as it seems like this should be part of the standard access functionality. Thanks.
  2. I have two templates: map-submit, map-view. map-views are children templates of a single map-submit template/page and this is enforced in the template Family settings. map-view is set to option B in Access: Show the Login page And guest has View pages permission unchecked. What I want to happen is if you access a map-view page and aren't logged in it shows the login page, you login and then go straight to the specific page you were trying to view. However, this is what happens: Login page is presented On successful login you it takes you to the parent page, the single map-submit page, e.g. login on maps/submit/test-map (map-view) and go go to maps/submit (map-submit) If you visit the page it should've redirected to (maps/submit/test-map) you are presented with the login page again and so on The only thing that seems to work is to login via the usual CMS URL: /processwire/ and then visit the page I can't see anything in the logs. Any ideas how I can fix this as it's currently a bit clunky for the client? I don't think I have any unusual modules installed and I have no hooks set up that manipulate the login or the session. I'm on 3.0.184, PHP 7.4. Thanks.
  3. I'm sure this will be something really simple but I am adding repeaters items to a Pro Fields Matrix and each item gets added twice (they are identical). The code definitely only runs once and there are no duplicate items in $basketTable. Am I doing anything wrong? Thanks. (Irrelevant code has been removed) $p = new \ProcessWire\Page(); $p->template = 'account-order'; $p->name = $orderReference; $p->of(false); foreach ($basketTable as $tableItem) { if (isset($tableItem['type']) === true) { if ($tableItem['type'] == 'typeface-trial') { $orderDownload = $p->orderDownloads->getNew(); $orderDownload->repeater_matrix_type = 1; $orderDownload->orderTypeface = $tableItem['id']; $orderDownload->save(); $p->orderDownloads->add($orderDownload); } if ($tableItem['type'] == 'typeface-weight') { $orderDownload = $p->orderDownloads->getNew(); $orderDownload->repeater_matrix_type = 2; $orderDownload->orderDownloadsWeight = $tableItem['weight-id']; $orderDownload->orderDownloadsLicense = $tableItem['license-id']; $orderDownload->save(); $p->orderDownloads->add($orderDownload); } if ($tableItem['type'] == 'typeface-bundle') { $orderDownload = $p->orderDownloads->getNew(); $orderDownload->repeater_matrix_type = 3; $orderDownload->orderDownloadsBundle = $tableItem['bundle-id']; $orderDownload->orderDownloadsLicense = $tableItem['license-id']; $orderDownload->save(); $p->orderDownloads->add($orderDownload); } } } $p->save(); I thought the process is to called getNew(), set the properties, save it and then add it to the page and save that — which I'm doing.
  4. On another thread I've found out how to make the email field unique but EmailNewUser still runs if you use a duplicate email and sends to the old address. Is there any way to prevent this happening?
  5. I want to make it so that both user name and email are unique in template users. I've got this which issues a warning, which is better than nothing: wire()->addHookAfter('Pages::saveReady', function(\ProcessWire\HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); // Don't run on newly created pages if ($page !== null && $page->created !== 0) { if ($page->template == 'user') { $pages = wire('pages')->find('template=user'); foreach ($pages as $p) { // Don't compare to current page if ($p->id != $page->id) { if ($p->email == $page->email) { wire('session')->warning('**' . $p->email . '** is already being used by [' . $p->name . '](/processwire/access/users/edit/?id=' . $p->id . ') — it is highly recommended each account has a unique email address', \ProcessWire\Notice::allowMarkdown); } } } } } }); I am also using the EmailNewUser module. The reason I am issuing a warning as opposed to preventing the page being saved is regardless of what I do if you have the Send welcome email checkbox checked, EmailNewUser seems to always send the email out — and always to the duplicate email. I did try overriding the email to a random non-existent one so the email send would go nowhere — but EmailNewUser always emails the duplicate address, which is going to be confusing for the client. Is there any way to adapt the above code to prevent EmailNewUser from running if the email is a duplicate? Or is there a way to make EmailNewUser used an updated random email instead? I'm not sure how it works but however EmailNewUser is set up it seems to always use the old value. I hope that makes sense! Thanks.
  6. Ah, I get it now. Thanks for such a great explanation!
  7. Thank you. I never knew about the relationship between the hook and the class and function name so that is a huge help. Studying the Page and Pages class shows me how different they are — so that makes sense! 🙂 I'm still not 100% on the second point. From reading about hooks I thought the first condition in parenthesis in a hook was a selector and the second was a filter for fields. So to me, this should work since I want to filter out saves where the page has a specific template: \ProcessWire\wire()->addHookBefore('Pages(template=typeface)::saveReady', function(\ProcessWire\HookEvent $event) { \ProcessWire\wire('session')->error('Hook called'); }); But instead this is what works: \ProcessWire\wire()->addHookBefore('Pages::saveReady(template=typeface)', function(\ProcessWire\HookEvent $event) { \ProcessWire\wire('session')->error('Hook called'); }); Why is that? I'm sure I'm missing something really obvious!
  8. I am preventing pages with a specific template from being deleted. I have it working with Pages::trash(template=foo), Pages::delete(template=foo). I'm after a better understanding of why this works please. Why does it work with Pages and not Page, what's the difference? Why is it Pages::trash(template=foo) and not Pages(template=foo)::trash? I have read the docs page on hooks but still don't quite get it. 🥴
  9. Got it! Thanks so much for your @ryan. Thanks for the link too @AndZyk, that explains it really well.
  10. Thanks to you both, some very good suggestions. From the template file @Robin S is right, you need to use return. Actually though, just this will work: return '<p>An error occurred</p>'; What would be the advantage of: <p>An error occurred</p> <?php return $this->halt(); ?> What does halt() actually do? I am reluctant to use exit() as I have some code in finished.php to run so the above works well for me, thanks.
  11. I've searched for this but couldn't find anything but am maybe using the wrong terms. Is there a way to do something like exit('<p>an error occurred!</p>'); but still have ProcessWire “shutdown” normally? Specifically, I want to be able to not render the template but still run some logging code in finished.php. Is there a function for this? Thanks.
  12. In my recent question about utf8mb4, I was asking about columns being lowered from 255 to 250. I misunderstood since I've just realised for some time VARCHAR can go way beyond 250 anyway so none of them in the database dump would be affected. The 250 in that quote is referring to column_name values for indexes. Many of PW's tables for fields have indexes: data_exact, BTREE data(250) data, FULLTEXT, data I presume it just uses data or data_exact based on type of selector used (natural language or exact). I've never specified an index length when using BTREE though and didn't realise there was a limit (though databases aren't my strong point). Does this just mean that if you do an exact search it will only apply to the first 250 characters of what is in data? If so, why explicitly set a limit? Wouldn't MySQL just default it to 250 anyway — or if you're in strict mode does it cause errors? I guess when setting up a database myself I would almost always use BTREE on relations where it's just an int, so would never run into this limitation. Thanks!
  13. I have changed a database over to utfmb4 and it seems to work. I: Exported the database Replaced utf8 with utf8mb4 Imported SQL back in Added $config->dbCharset = 'utf8mb4'; to config.php And now I can add Emojis via the CMS. Do I need to do anything else? I know that types like VARCHAR will no longer hold the same amount of characters now some characters take up four bytes but here Ryan says: Modules-wise I am using mainly Pro Fields and core ones. I also notice studying the database schema that most fields would not be affected by this; some use ASCII, most use larger TEXT fields. The few UTF8 VARCHAR fields are system ones set to 250 as above, which from the sounds of it Ryan allocated for years ago. EDIT: I can see the above refers to index lengths and not VARCHAR lengths, the latter can be larger than 250. See my other post. Am I likely to run into any problems? Other than smaller indexes or a huge VARCHAR column being too big to convert over (highly unlikely) what is the worst that can happen?
  14. Ah, thanks — id=page.your_repeater_field_name works perfectly! Also, thanks for your explanation regarding point 2. Regarding point 1, I worked it out, thanks, per my previous post. I am just storing an array of repeaterID => quantity in my session as I wanted to pull the live data on each request.
  15. Ah, well, I've answered point 1. $item = $this->wire('pages')->get('template=repeater_options, id=1255'); I'd love to know the answer to point 3 though. It would be extremely useful if that's an option. If I do a Page Reference field and set the selector string to template=repeater_options it would get every single item — whereas I'd only want the ones for the current page.
