  1. Thank you very much for the module. Based on latest EU legislation, cookie consent requests must default to NO. However, if clicking the X in the top-right of the cookie consent dialog, it seems to default to YES: 02-10-_2019_10-23-18.mp4 But it is even worse: In the cookie consent management, no choice is indicated, leaving visitors clueless, whether cookies are stored (while they actually are). This really seems to be a bug which can bring users into troube. Could you please update the module, so that no cookies are allowed until the user expressly agreed to it?
  2. DeepL is such a strange company. Arising like Phoenix from the Ashes with a beyond mind-staggering service but sales/marketing appears quite autistic for my taste. Apparently, they seem not to be looking for the small fishes. If I would be them, I would offer an affiliate business, motivating guys like you making a module and participate from each use. Conspiracy theory: DeepL actually is a Google front. Perhaps for legal reasons. Just wild speculation. Mark my words. You read it here first. 😉
  3. I really don't want to nit-pick, but sending the domain of "jon@jondonson.com" would still create a privacy issue. *sigh* Yes, I know, it is pedantic but GDPR legislation is harsh now.
  4. Ah, what a fail. Sorry, wasn't aware of this. Too sad. It would be extremely useful.
  5. Such list should be pulled by Processwire. Otherwise, you would need to pass user email addresses to (unknown?!) third party. GDPR alert! 🙂 .
  6. http://littlesvr.ca/apng/gif_apng_webp.html This guy put animated WebP to test with somehow disappointing results. Is the test flawed? What are your experiences?
  7. Now for some cold hard facts: Screenshot with Retina resolution (21KB after TinyPNG optimization): The same but rescaled screenshot to 1x resolution (also 21KB after TinyPNG optimization): Why would I want to generate smaller variations of a screenshot with half the dimensions but almost the identical file size? I know, that the results depend on the nature of screenshots. Above comparison would fail if the screenshot would contain horizontal color fades or photo-realistic contents. But for such general screenshots it would be better to only serve the original without variations.
  8. Interesting read, thanks. I still think, it is not necessary to provide different bitmap files in the special case of screenshots. We do screenshots in Retina resolution. Due to the large amount of white space in screenshots, those compress quite well with PNG. Example: http://www.keyboard-and-mouse-sharing.com/screenshots.htm Browsers resize those Retina bitmaps quite well for displays with non-Retina resolution. It would be more data transfer to serve multiple bitmap file variations rather than using one single file that is resized by the browser.
  9. Sure, just kindly meant as a suggestion to add this to the offered presets.
  10. I am not referring to uploading bitmaps in the Processwire backend. I mean the front end bitmap delivery. In \site\assets\files\... I see many variations created that I actually don't need:
  11. Thanks for the very useful module. Just one issue: Either cookie banner placement has its issues: If placed on top, it gets in the way with the main nav. If placed in the bottom, it may overlay the important "imprint" link often placed in the sub-footer. How about a small box in the lower left or right?:
  12. Modern browser can resize bitmaps on the client site quite well. So, shouldn't the Processwire image resize be disabled to reduce additional http requests (if the user resizes viewport)? Do I miss something? Should/can it be disabled?
  13. The autocomplete feature of the "link insert" is absurdly useful. However it quickly becomes flooded with similar sounding pages in my setup. Is there a way to filter/exclude certain branches of the page tree from here? I tried this setting for the unwanted "/menu/" branch but it still shows up: In an ideal world, each "insert link" dialog would be customizable. Example: The "insert page"dialog fro a page under "/faq/" would show only URL matches of page tree branch "/tech/", etc. Does this make sense?
  14. Yes, this is a very cool module, that is already in place. However, I am sorry to say, that the workflow to copy just a repeater is more complex than a simple "copy & paste". ;-)
  15. Great, will have a look. As you mention, it really should be a core feature. It just doesn't make sense to limit the copy&paste scope to one page.
  16. Is there any chance, that a feature us implemented to copy & paste repeaters not only on the same but different pages? This would be extremely helpful. Any feedback would be very much appreciated.
  17. I would say, rather small (max a few dozens to hundreds for bigger companies). YMMV
  18. So true. Anyway, you will be asked by the court why you have not made use of such "reasonable measure" like free & easy-to-apply AES encryption in a court case. And a friendly smile will not save you here. I am not a lawyer but have witnessed many court cases to see the risk. The topic may be difficult to understand for non German businesses who enjoy less strict privacy rules. On the other hand, it would be really benefit of ProMailer compared to other newsletter systems if it would proactively add data security. -- Regarding subscriber black list: Here is a court case which states, that you must make sure, that you must not send an email to any email of the entire TLD or risk hefty penalties. http://www.gesetze-bayern.de/Content/Document/Y-300-Z-BECKRS-B-2017-N-102179 So, the black list must enable users to optionally block an entire domain belonging to an individual. Example: 1. A malicious person subscribes to your newsletter. Think of a competitor or his buddy. 2. He refuses to ever have subscribed and sends you a cease & desist letter because you "spammed him". 3. You have no sufficient evidence to prove the subscription, you then block the particular email and sign the letter which makes it a binding agreement. 4. The guy uses a different email address under the same domain. He then gets another newsletter from you which violates the agreement. You have to pay $3000-5000 to him. The success of Mailchimp & Co. may partly be, because companies just can't stand all the legal traps anymore. ProMailer could provide a solution to this problem with quite easy measures.
  19. Please consider it a preconfigured option. We know cases where users refuse to ackknowledge that they registered and then sued for spam. It really is insane and a big business for the law industry. It would help, if ProMailer can provide as much evidence as possible (while it is totally clear, that there is no bullet proof evidence). I feel, that there is quite a culture clash between USA and in particular Germany regarding data privacy.

  20. The GDPR asks generally to minimize gathering and storing person identifiable information and if required, apply state of the art protection. A database with encrypted email is state of the art and protects user data in case of theft of the database (or its backups).
  21. Here you go: http://www.privacy-regulation.eu/en/article-32-security-of-processing-GDPR.htm
  22. As Processwire seems to be quite successful in Germany, some GDPR considerations: Are the subscriber email addresses stored with encryption in the database? GDPR enforces to use "state of the art" methods to protect user data which includes encryption. Is there a email black list of users who do not want receive a newsletter under any circumstances. Germany is quite lunatically rigid regarding "spam" emails with penalties of around $5000 for each unwanted received email. Example: User receives newsletter, denies to ever have subscribed and asks for a ceise and desist letter. If you then send another letter to such user, it will be expensive. Does the module save the newsletter subscriptions with sufficient evidences of the subscription? Time stamp, IP address and header (of course also saved with encryption in the database)?
  23. You were right. I tried the HTMLPurifier Demo and it removes the button html: http://htmlpurifier.org/demo.php Strange, that it doesn't like buttons.
  24. Yes, HTMLPurifier is enabled. Can it be configured not to strip the valid <button> html?
  25. Just need to chime in. With more than 35 yrs of IT history it rarely happened, that I am so in love in a software like with Processwire. It is such a marvel. Ryan, please never stop making it the best "web tool" on the market. Thank you all!
