New starter theme with blog and basic pages

Recommended Posts

Hey,

Been using this starter theme for a little while now and thought I'd open it up on github - https://github.com/benbyford/bb-starter

It has all my favourite modules installed, .less, some hany .js libraries and a set of blog templates for a simple news / blog setup. The theme is built on the simple theme from PW with additional setup. For more info see the Readme.md file on github.

See it here - http://bbstarter.nicegrp.com/

Thanks everyone for your continued work and fun using PW.

Hello benbyf,

I have tried the demo at http://bbstarter.nicegrp.com/

If you use the search it leads to an error.

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Error has been logged.

Best regards

Thanks for this one and added to the templates.

Does this template allow for adding new blog posts and send a contact form ?

erHello Developers and Community,

I need your help. I created a blog with the "bb-starter" site profile at https://processwire.wpzweinull.ch/blog  

Unfortunately, I can not realize that under /blog only blogpost teaser are displayed. Now complete blogposts with "body" are displayed.

In the "blog-list" template, I have already removed the "body" field, but it does not affect the frontend.

Am I missing something here or do I have to adjust something?

Thanks in advance.

Very unfortunate that no one can help me. Unfortunately the Blogpost-Teaser does not work. As I said, "body" is removed from the "blog-list" template, and the whole blog post is still displayed on the blog homepage.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Alex L

As far as I can see you need to implement your own version of "article summary" so that you have something to output instead of "body".

Such as: https://processwire.com/blog/posts/pw-3.0.28/

You can also extract the first paragraph in various ways: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8757826/i-need-to-split-text-delimited-by-paragraph-tag

Hope this helps. If get stuck just post what you implement so that we can help further.

      Hey all,
      I want to customize the mywebsite/processwire/profile page. It's almost all good but I want to get rid of the sections 'Admin Theme' and 'Language' so that the user can just set a new password. (see image)
      Do I have to modify the admin template or how can I do that? Because when I go tree>Admin>Profile there are no fields to add or remove.
      Or where can I find the php file?
      I would appreciate your help.

      Here I'm writing up about my first ProcessWire site, Reached.space, a blog and directory about shops which offer international shipping. 
      I'm from The GrayFly Group, which is the registered trade name for GrayFly Stationery, LLC, a limited liability company registered in the state of Kentucky, USA. You might ask, why is a stationery company creating websites?! Well, in a way both activities are very similar: both activities have the goal of getting written messages across in a pleasing manner to the reader.
      With that out of the way, let's move on and explain what went on behind the scenes of the Reached.space site:
      Template
      I used a free CSS-based template from W3CSS at https://www.w3schools.com/w3css/w3css_templates.asp , using mainly the "Architect" template as the basis and modifying it as needed.
      Pagination
      The pagination feature of ProcessWire was very helpful here; I kept the home page to just two blogroll articles so that the reader was not overwhelmed, but upon pressing "more articles" the remainder of the blogroll is paginated with 4 articles to a page.
      Screen reader
      I made adjustments to my usage of the template to make it screen-reader-friendly. I used the Google Chrome extension to test out how the site would be handled with a screen reader.
      Security
      Security is always important, so I was thrilled to find a great all-in-one-place security guide in the ProcessWire docs at https://processwire.com/docs/security/ - I simply went through the guide and did what it said, using it as a checklist.  
      Modules
      As far as I'm aware, the only additional modules I used (that were not already activated by default in standard PW install) were the Upgrade and Upgrade Checker modules. The main reason for this was security considerations, but it was also an added convenience and peace of mind to have it check for updates every time I logged in.
      However, I did use additional software that was not modules, as described below.
      Other software - Simple HTML DOM
      Here I was very fortunate to receive help from the ProcessWire community on the forum. Due to the site's monetization model being affiliate marketing, I wished to make all my external links nofollow and target _blank by default. User @Robin S was instrumental in showing me how to do this using Simple HTML DOM in the forum post  https://processwire.com/talk/topic/17295-solved-how-to-make-external-links-nofollow-and-target-_blank-by-default-if-using-source-code-toggle-in-editor/
      Other software - Google Analytics cookie manager
      My site requirements for GDPR were specific enough that I felt I would rather develop my own code to handle Google Analytics tracking, which I'll describe here. I wanted to be certain GA tracking was disabled by default requiring opt-in, instead of opt-out. I also included in the Cookie Manager some written info about third party cookies (these are placed when clicking on affiliate links) and how the user can avoid such tracking (turn off third party cookies in their browser settings). 
      I also disabled front-end PW cookies as described here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15270-session-storage-and-lifetime/ 
      Google Analytics cookie settings
      The Google Analytics cookie setting code was done using JavaScript. I used a session storage variable to indicate whether the user had a) accepted GA tracking cookies b) declined them or c) had not made a choice yet. I also had to make some changes also to the <head> code to ensure Google Analytics cookies were not set unless the user had accepted them. 
      Efficiency - optimizing 404s
      I used the guide at https://processwire.com/blog/posts/optimizing-404s-in-processwire/ to sinkhole bot-driven 404 requests to a static 404 file. 
      Back office pic
      Below is an image of how ProcessWire allows helpful field descriptions and displays them when used in templates, so that when I come to actually use or enter content in fields I created months ago, I know what the ramifications are. Very helpful. Also, when using the back office I found the Reno admin theme to be very pleasing, efficient, and easy to use.

      This profile can be used as a business card or very simple blog.
      Requires the latest version processwire 3.0.101 !!!
      Milligram Site Profile For Processwire 3x with include functions like:
      MarkupRegions
      FunctionsAPI
      wireIncludeFile | wireRenderFile
      Essentially, this structure uses minimalist CSS framework Milligram and the Flexbox Grid System Gridlex

      If you want to use Laravel Mix you must first ensure that Node.js and NPM are installed on your machine.
      Basic example to Debian and Ubuntu based Linux distributions:
      Node.js
      curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_8.x | sudo -E bash - sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
      See more installation options LINK
      npm is installed with Node.js just check in linux terminal like below:
      node -v
      npm -v
      Set BrowserSync inside folder /templates/webpack.mix.js and change your dev url
      proxy: 'http://localhost/mix/', to your installation processwire folder like:
      proxy: 'http://localhost/your-processwire-installation-folder/',
      Next install npm packages in your templates folder with command npm install
      Now, boot up the dev server npm run watch, and you're all set go!
      On completion, use the command npm run production to build styles and scripts in the dist folder
      Simple Usage ( Basic Command )
      Run npm install Watch npm run watch Build npm run production All files to Webpack build steps is inside file ( webpack.mix.js )
      Folder With all SCSS files is inside templates/src/scss
      All build styles and scripts is inside the ( dist ) folder
      References:
      Milligram

      Hi,
      I'm creating a News/Updates section for a client and they would like the 3 most recent Updates previewed on the home screen. So this would be Title and Date Posted. These blog posts will be child pages of a News and Updates page, which is a child of the Home page. So it's like Home -> News -> Blog posts. I don't need this to be a nav menu, just something to show the newest updates.
      All help is appreciated 🙂
