  1. I always seem to get this warning on every new install of PW on my Ubuntu 14 box with Digital Ocean. The servers are usually based in the UK and I was wondering if I should be adding something other than the below in the config? Is there a UK based locale code? Quick Google didnt come up with much.

    Warning: your server locale is undefined and may cause issues. Please add this to /site/config.php file (adjust “en_US.UTF-8” as needed): setlocale(LC_ALL,'en_US.UTF-8');

    Added to the config file:



  2. Is there any update on this, doesn't look like many of the browsers have followed the google team by implementing. Love to have a simply solution for converting to webp in PW too if that might be available, even if its for opera and chrome users. something like



    webp = image->convert("webp")


  3. Think that’s a great idea! Havent seen the file rename and replace before so not sure how that relates but wouldn’t be much work to get he module to work with specific permissions and give a default and permissions to hook into as options.

    Great module, thank you!

    Is there a way to use separate variations of icons, e.g. "fas fa-check" vs. "far fa-check"?

    P.S.: You might want to point to the icon cheatsheet in the module description. I was confused as well (newbie).

    Both valid. PW comes with Fontawesome in the default admin so thats why its the deafult far icons. If you want to purchase new icons versions and replaces the files in your copy then that shoul work.

    Will definitely change the description.

    I like the design.

    The search function is not working or am I missing something? Maybe a search function for a single page is not necessary. 😉

    Ha, true. I'm future proofing it. Will have a blog up there soon too.

    Just a suggestion, as @wbmnfktr said, you should limit the size for the video on client editing. Then give them a note that they have to use **a video converter from a web service** prior to upload the video to the backend.

    With https://clipchamp.com/en/products/utilities your video can be reduced from 72MB to 15MB with a really decent quality.

    Settings are : 

    Preset:  Web
    Resolution:  720p
    Format:  mp4
    Quality:  Medium
    You should give a try ✌️
    ps: I am not affiliated with them but there are a free plan. Mods, feel free to remove the link..

    looks good, but I dont really want to sign up for a monthly fee to get the watermark off for a single video 😞

    In case of images you can let them upload what they want, but ensure that it is in highest possible quality. For the output you define width x height, quality and even output format (jpeg), if they use png were not appropriate. 🙂

    thanks @horst didnt know you could convert the type as well as size.

    Simple and nice.

    Caught a little typo there 🙂

    Also, you might want to match the height of the bottom contact form elements, or re-arrange them. The msg textarea is quite small...

    good catch thanks! will look at making teh comment box bigger, you going to write me a long message? 😉

  9. I've done some of that work for sure. I just looked in Chrome and got around 22mb and thats with video, so its not great but not quite that bad.

    Though in checking I spotted some massive png's that should be jpg's that obviously the client must have uploaded so going to have to change that.

  10. Another new site only recently finished (so there still might be bugs :)


    Ethical by Design is my new personal project. I've been running a podcast called the Machine Ethics Podcast: about the social impact of AI. Over the last few years I've learnt alot and I'm now hoping to help businesses learn about or implemented AI responsibly.

    Branding done by Nick Willsher, and the site was designed and coded by myself.

    Hoping to spin this one out into a more configurable site profile for the community soon.

  11. Not new, but a website I've worked on for a year or so in continous development.


    I originally inherited the site from another web design company - upgraded PW and over the year added ecommerce using the Stripe module and a custom integration, revamped the frontend and added lots of new templates.

    Also did some frontend work on the shopify shop.

    @benbyf I'm using WireMailChimp and using it in conjunction with Login/Register to create accounts on the front end.

    Cool. I think it only signs up users with role "subscriber" set, or a different role setup in my subscriber module (not required). So you can change this in the code, or add the role when they register.

    They also must have a vaild email, and mailchimp API keys and list name setup in the module config

  13. not sure if we have our wires crossed but providing the file wasnt really the issue, other wise I would just link to the location, it was capturing statistics on file access where range-headers needed to be provided. This was mainly as itunes at teh time didnt supply any podcast data – they've changed their tune abit since but still what they track is limited and to this day my podcast still says "Not Enough Data" sooooo still super annoying.

  14. HELLO, found that AIOM is not compiling the following code which is pretty annoying, if any one knows of any works around that would be great.

    Think i got it working now, for some reason i couldnt see it but might have been a caching issue. 😐

    @supports(display: grid) {
        .two-up {
            @media screen and (min-width: @small-screen) {
                display: grid;

    // edit

    was given this by @Christophe which was super useful to anyone using css grid


    "The challenge is Microsoft Edge, the only modern browser that, as of this writing, still uses the old grid specification. It returns true for @supports (display: grid) {}, even though its grid support is spotty and non-standard. Most relevant for our example is the lack of support for the grid-template-areas and grid-area properties and for the minmax() function. As a result, a feature query targeting display: grid would not exclude Microsoft Edge, and users of this browser would be served a broken layout. To resolve this issue and serve up grid layouts to Microsoft Edge only when the browser gets full support for the specification, target one of the unsupported features instead:

    @supports (grid-area: auto) {}

  15. HELLO!

    I've created a new admin page which after moving into the admin section of the page list, the items appears on the top nav in the admin. However adding "normal" pages as children doesnt not yield a dropdown in the top menu like Setup for example. is there something I can change / hook into to add subnav links with edit links to the topmenu? (using teh new AdminThemeUikit).

  16. HELLO!

    This is an old thread now, but just got a requirement into to do some shopify integration with PW, anyone done anything like this and created a module at all? If not I'll get on it. I mainly want to get product info from shopify to show in PW.
