  1. I'm a new developer but am really loving PW. I'm finding it pretty easy to build simple sites. More complicated things have eluded me up until now. Joss, your tutorials are awesome. I'm learning tons from them and can see how to expand the concepts you're teaching to other tasks I want to accomplish. Please keep publishing. Your lessons are valuable - and very much appreciated. Aaron
  2. Thanks everyone. Pete - yes, I looked at the ProCache module and will definitely be using it for the site. Wanze - thanks for the tips. Should be fun. I'll post back when I get stuck. Off to study the API again. Aaron
  3. Thanks Pete. Yes, hosting will be incredibly important to us. We're not going to go cheap on that front and will have hosting in place that will support many thousands of pages, tens of thousands of images, etc. It's exciting to think about. Your answer reassures me that we don't need to go with a solution ala Drupal, or something as equally huge and complicated. Aaron
  4. Hello everyone. I've used PW to build a couple of small client sites and enjoy working with it. I'm still a beginner with php but am understanding more and more about the API, so I'm learning. I have the opportunity to help build a site that will function as a marketplace for art buyers and sellers, which will include a magazine component as well. The other team members have php and design experience but aren't familiar with a lot of CMS's. I just need to know if PW could handle the following: user registration, 1 group being artists, the other being buyers dashboard for artists group only login/ecommerce for buyers The goal is to have hundreds of artists and up to 10,000 registered buyers. I know these are very general requirements, and I know that PW is capable of a great many things. But I'm not sure if the number of users will be an issue. I'd like to go back to the think tank and at least let them know they could consider PW as an option - or not. Thanks for any opinions you have. If I'm barking up the wrong tree, please let me know. Aaron
  5. Ryan - sorry, totally forgot I posted this. Thanks for the info you provided as that would have gotten me up and away. But - the "client" turned out to be a total nut and wanted me to work for free - plus give him 40% of revenue from any referrals for sites that came through him from the directory businesses. Once I heard that, I packed up my notebook, laptop and told him I wasn't interested. Client horror story. But again, thanks for being so active in helping people find solutions with Processwire. Aaron
  6. Thanks Joss. I think I might be able to follow what you said there. I'll have to wait to see if the project is a go and implement the above. I'll post back if I bump into anything, but I guess I'll have to figure out how the client wants the thing to look in the first place. Good to know it's doable though. Aaron
  7. HI everyone. I built a basic site in PW a few months back (and I was a beginner then) but haven't required it for any projects since - until possibly now. But I need to know if PW is the right choice. I need to build a business directory website. Essentially, when one of the reps get a request for a business to be included somewhere in the directory, I want them to be able to easily insert it in within the proper category. I have no idea how to build the category structure, however. In addition (because the reps might be challenged when it comes to using a CMS), is it possible for each to have a separate log-in to back-end of the site, and "insert a listing" so to speak? If anyone has some input or if you've done something similar, let me know. Thanks. Aaron
  8. Nevermind - just found the drag and drop option. Strange it wasn't working for me at first which prompted the questions.
  9. I have some repeater regions installed in a template which are working great. However, the client now wants the most recent entry to show at the top of the list. How would I accomplish this? Thanks. Aaron
  10. Thanks diogo - what I meant was, I'm having a hard time with php. Not necessarily PW. Having multiple instances of a simple form can help improve conversions on longer pages. That's why I need to be able to insert it in different places. I'll try a few different solutions to see what works best. Thanks.
  11. OK - thanks diogo, I got it working. I was confused at first, though. Still having a rough time with php and how it works within PW's templates. What if I wanted to be able to insert this form anywhere within my site - using a different template, for example? Would I have to add the same code to each template, or could I put the code into it's own template and include it anywhere I wanted using this shortcode method? Thanks.
  12. Thanks everyone. Teppo - I tried your suggestion but it didn't seem to work. But then, I probably did it incorrectly. Diogo - your suggestion seems almost like a shortcode which is what I'm most familiar with. But I need baby steps. Your code above would replace <?php echo $page->body; ?> in my page template? So this would add a textarea field with the ability to add {{MCsignup}}? Do I have all that correct? Where do I put the actual form code? Does that go into a separate template? Thanks.
  13. Thanks teppo. Here's the code for the form. <!-- Begin MailChimp Signup Form --> <div id="mc_embed_signup"> <form action="http://link here" method="post" id="mc-embedded-subscribe-form" name="mc-embedded-subscribe-form" class="validate" target="_blank" novalidate> <label for="mce-EMAIL">Subscribe to my mailing list</label> <input type="email" value="" name="EMAIL" class="email" id="mce-EMAIL" placeholder="email address" required> <div class="clear"><input type="submit" value="Subscribe" name="subscribe" id="mc-embedded-subscribe" class="button"></div> </form> </div> <!--End mc_embed_signup--> I'll have a look at the settings as you suggested. Aaron
  14. Good morning. I'm trying to put a Mailchimp subscribe box in the body area (TinyMCE) of my basic-page template. I pasted the provided html in the appropriate spot but it's not working. Do I have to place the code directly in my template file to get it to render? Because I want the box in the middle of the page's copy, the only thing I can think to do is create two fields - one for body copy above the signup form and one below. Can't think of another way to do it right now. Thanks.
  15. My goodness, I'm a dumbass Thanks Pete. I hadn't thought about adding the site name outside the php closing tag. Sometimes I like to make things complicated.
