Multisite

@Soma in your README, at the bottom, you write:

Since the whole concept is all a pretty hack, I found that it comes with some complications that can't be solved in an elegant way. So for example the biggest issue is that you can't crosslink pages via the RTE Link plugin, since it doesn't know about Multisite. So you'll end with wrong URL's when for example you link from a page of one site to a page of another site. If that's an issue it's still possible to copy the ProcessPageEditLink.module and modify the root parent for the page tree select. I'd be glad to help out with an example there.

I was doing a few tests just now. For me, it all works wonderfully (well, at least in a local setup). Did you change something recently in that regard and forgot to edit the readme?

Yeah that's not anymore. There's a parser on page render now.

The module is working otherwise great (thanks a lot!), but when visiting www. subdomain, the URLs of the rootParent children lack the domain.

$siteRoot = $page->rootParent;
$nav = "";
foreach ($siteRoot->children as $child) {
  $nav .= "<a href='$child->url'>$child->title</a>\n";
}

This produces urls like https://pagename

I can use <a href='/$child->name'> instead to make them work as relative URLs, but it would be nice to know what is going wrong.

Setup:

- Home
  - mysite.com
  - myothersite.com

$config->MultisiteDomains = array(
    "mysite.com" => array(
            "root" => "mysite.com",
            "http404" => 27
        ),
    "www.mysite.com" => array(
            "root" => "mysite.com",
            "http404" => 27
        ),
    "myothersite.com" => array(
            "root" => "myothersite.com",
            "http404" => 1017
        ),
    "www.myothersite.com" => array(
            "root" => "myothersite.com",
            "http404" => 1017
        )
);
$config->httpHosts = array('mysite.com','www.mysite.com','myothersite.com','www.myothersite.com');

If I don't have the separate www. entries in MultisiteDomains, it does not work. It just throws me to the "Home" page, if I try to navigate to www. subdomain.

Maybe I'm missing something here but I ran into minor problems setting this up for domains that contain a hyphen.

First of all the setup is multisite AND multilanguage.
PW 3.0.130, Multisite Module from Github, 3 domains, 2 languages

Link from ProcessWire Backend: http://abelt.test/en/alexander-abelt.test/ gets wrongly redirected to http://abelt.test/en/alexander- and not to http://alexander-abelt.test/en/.

In this case it's not a real deal-breaker as it's only a setup I need for some of my domains and I know how to work around this but nonetheless I'd like to know if I have to change something or if it is a hiccup here.

I think this can happen if your multisite root page name has also the domain name in it. You should avoid that. Just rename it to something else

My guess is that this comes from the fact you have domain.com and www.domain.com. You want to avoid that, cause the script isn't clever enough to know which is which. In any case you want to avoid having two domains setup for the same site. You should redirect your www to non www or the other way around.

Ok... I see the problem.

alexander-abelt.test shares one of the other domains abelt.test in it which I can't really avoid as these are or will be my domains (just with another .tld of course) I want to use later on.

As this has no further effects on maintaining content, building menus and whatever so far I guess I can ignore that linking/redirecting issue for now.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Ah reading again, I'm not 100% sure why this happens in your case. (but most likely what i said anyway :)) What is the setup config? And what Module version?

Yes the problem is most likely that both sites share the same names in it.

abelt.test is in both setups and even in the root name. Just rename the root to something else more unique would do the trick. It's not something you would see anyway. 

"abelt.test" => array( // domain name is used to map to root page
            "root" => "abelt", // page name for the root page
            "http404" => 1031
        ),
    "alexander-abelt.test" => array( // funktioniert nicht mit /en/ auf Home
            "root" => "alexander",
            "http404" => 1029

That did the trick perfectly!

Changing root and the page names fixed it. Didn't really get that the page's name doesn't have to be the domain actually.

An additional sitenote here:

Changing the root name to something different than the domain is not enough.
If that page name appears anywhere else at the end of an URL the hiccup is back.

root = abelt
Problematic page URL = /about-abelt/ 
Problematic page URL = /about/abelt/
Working page URL = /about-abelt-whatever/

As to make sure I don't run into any issues with this I changed my root page names to something a cat would write while walking over the keyboard.

I don't have cats 😛

Yes that's true. I know the "redirect if domain name is found in url" would need even a much more sophisticated parsing method, but it gets too complicated for my brain. I think having random strings as root name would be a much easier solution.

That could become a problem then. You should add it as a requirement to the module nonetheless. 😉

Not needed when everything was set up correctly with this things in mind. You know about that and do the necessary things. I'm relatively new to this setup and had to work through this. Now I know too.

It is. Actually it could make other things easier when debugging. As I see some weird strings instead of domain(.tld) now I don't falsely think of domain names and such things. I know right away it's something different and where it comes from.

How do you guys handle developing on local machines regarding Multisite? Often I download the production database and I have different config.php, but I'm starting to dislike that approach 🙂 I can off course put all the environment stuff in an .ini and read with parse_ini. 

$config->MultisiteDomains = array(
    'www.realdomain.com' => array(
            'root' => 'www.realdomain.com',
            'http404' => 1045
        ),
    'realdomain.localhost' => array(
            'root' => 'realdomain.localhost',
            'http404' => 1045
        ),
    'www.anotherrealdomain.com' => array(
            'root' => 'www.anotherrealdomain.com',
            'http404' => 1046
        ),
    'anotherrealdomain.localhost' => array(
            'root' => 'anotherrealdomain.localhost',
            'http404' => 1046
        ),
  );

I have a lot of domains in the multisite. Would love to hear your approaches.

I have a config-dev.php for dev server or local setup. and the "root" stays the same just the domains are different.

Ah, the good old -dev approach. That might work here too. I used to have it everywhere, but I've switched to more generic config.php which reads a config.ini which is outside my version control. The big disadvantage here is when you have a lot of customisations in your config.php. Thanks for reminding me.

We have a local config.env.php file which is read by our general config.php.

Everything that is commun is in config.php, but local settings are kept in config.env.php.

In config.php:

/**
 * Environment configuration file
 * 
 */
$configFile = $config->paths->site . 'config.env.php';
 
 @require_once($configFile);

You can also edit your local HOSTS file, so the domains always stay the same. Just remember to comment your hosts file when working on the live site 🙂

@apeisa @Soma

Just noticed that the modules directory entry for this module still points to the old repository, and also doesn't list Multisite as being PW3.x compatible. Would it make sense to update the entry to point to Soma's repository?

We just did a similar shift for AdminBar, and Adrian made the necessary changes in the modules repo.

Also, I'm currently not entirely sure which branch I should use – last I checked it seemed that "dev" was the one to use, but since then that has apparently been removed (or renamed) and now there are two branches left: master and dev2. Master is the one with most recent updates, so is that preferred over dev2, or vice versa?

Sorry for all the silly questions 🙂

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.56
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy! :)

      As threatened in Ryan's announcement for 3.0.139, I built a little module for sliding toggles as a replacement for checkboxes. Styling of the input is CSS3 only (with all the usual caveats about older browsers), no JS necessary, and may still be a bit "rough around the edges", so to speak, since I didn't have much time for testing on different devices or brushing things up enough so I'd feel comfortable pushing it to the module directory. But here's the link to the GitHub repo for now:
      InputfieldSlideToggle
      Fieldtype and Inputfield that implements smartphone-style toggles as replacement for checkbox inputs. The visualization is CSS-only, no additional JS necessary.
      Status
      Still very alpha, use with caution!
      Features / Field Settings
      Size
      You can render the toggles in four different sizes: small, medium, large and extra large.
      Off Color
      Currently, "unchecked" toggles can be displayed either in grey (default) or red.
      On Color
      "Checked" toggles can be rendered in one of these colors: blue (default), black, green, grey, orange or red.

      Hi Guys
      I needed to add extended functionalities for the InputfieldDatetime Module (module is from processwire version 2.7.3) because of a Request of Customer.
      So I duplicated the module and placed it under /site/modules/.
      I have added 3 new Settings to the InputfieldDatetime Module.
      1. Day Restriction - Restrict different days based on weekdays selection (e.g. saturday, sunday) - WORKING

       
      2. Time Slots - Define Time slots based on custom Integer Value (max is 60 for 1 hour) - WORKING

       
      3. Time Range Rules per Weekday - Define a minTime and MaxTime per Weekday (e.g. Opening Hours of a Restaurant) - NOT WORKING PROPERLY

       
      The Problem
      Time Slots and Day Restriction working fine so far. But the Time Range Rules per Weekday doesn't work right.
      What should happen is, that when you click on a date, it should update the minTime and maxTime of the Time Select.
      But the change on the select only happens if you select a date 2 times or when you select a date 1 time and then close the datepicker and reopen it again.
      The time select doesn't get change when you select a date 1 time and don't close the picker.
      Here is the whole extended InputfieldDatetime Module.
      The Files that I have changed:
      InputfieldDatetime.module InputfieldDatetime.js jquery-ui-timepicker-addon.js (https://trentrichardson.com/examples/timepicker/) - updated it to the newest version, because minTime and maxTime Option was only available in the new version  
      Thats the Part of the JS that is not working correctly:
      if(datetimerules && datetimerules.length){ options.onSelect = function(date, inst) { var day = $(this).datetimepicker("getDate").getDay(); day = day.toString(); var mintime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-mintime'); var maxtime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-maxtime'); console.log("weekday: "+day); console.log("minTime: "+mintime); console.log("maxTime: "+maxtime); var optionsAll = $(this).datetimepicker( "option", "all" ); optionsAll.minTime = mintime; optionsAll.maxTime = maxtime; $(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); $(this).datetimepicker(optionsAll); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); //$.datepicker._selectDate($(this).attr("id"),date); //$.datepicker._base_getDateDatepicker(); // var inst = $.datepicker._getInst($(this)); // $.datepicker._updateDatepicker(inst); /*$(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); InputfieldDatetimeDatepicker($(this), mintime, maxtime); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); */ // $(this).datetimepicker('option', {minTime: mintime, maxTime: maxtime}); } } Can you have a look and find out what the Problem is?

      This module tracks changes, additions, removals etc. of public (as in "not under admin") pages of your site. Like it's name says, it doesn't attempt to be a version control system or anything like that - just a log of what's happened.
      At the moment it's still a work in progress and will most likely be a victim of many ruthless this-won't-work-let's-try-that-instead cycles, but I believe I've nailed basic functionality well enough to post it here.. so, once again, I'll be happy to hear any comments you folks can provide
      https://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-changelog/
      https://github.com/teppokoivula/ProcessChangelog
      How does it work?
      Exactly like it's (sort of) predecessor, Process Changelog actually consists of two modules: Process Changelog and Process Changelog Hooks. Hooks module exists only to serve main module by hooking into various functions within Pages class, collecting data of performed operations, refining it and keeping up a log of events in it's own custom database table (process_changelog.) Visible part is managed by Process Changelog, which provides users a (relatively) pretty view of the contents of said log table.
      How do you use it?
      When installed this module adds new page called Changelog under Admin > Setup which provides you with a table view of collected data and basic filtering tools See attached screenshots to get a general idea about what that page should look like after a while.
      For detailed installation instructions etc. see README.md.

      ---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      (please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about)
