statestreet: do you have multilang site with multilang page names?

Our needs for this module has been very little (only one site), so I would be happy to see if Soma would take a lead with his module.

I'm not using multi-language, so I guess it must have just been something else that changed in 2.4?

Either way, thanks to both of you for creating and improving this module.

Looks like I have a different problem now with Multisite 0.2. The original site is continuing to work fine, but we just tried launching the second site, and it displays the first site at the second site's domain. I double-checked that both lines in the module's settings screen match the titles of the top-level pages, but it still only shows the first site's content at both domains.

@statestreet, I'm not sure but it does work fine. It's hard to tell from here. All I can say that it's not trying to match the title but the page name. Also it does have issues with that it uses strpos to find matches. Possible sideeffect would be that domain with subdomains wouldn't work I think.

domain.com

my.domain.com

would get conflict with checking for the right current domain. I think this can be fixed with having a 1:1 match checking. But not sure it's what you experience.

Although after all it's a big hack to get this multisite tree's working so it's always possible things go wrong. I still consider this a beta and while it's working I strongly recommend to only use it if you are completely aware of what it is doing. It may not suit all situations.

@apeisa, I'm not keen to take the lead on this one. I got too many modules to support already. But I'm happy to help with getting it working or fixing something.

I have just the same feelings with this one. It is highly valuable module if you need it, but approach it as a experimental.

I finally figured this one out.

I had just about given up, when I thought to look in config.php, and lo and behold, there at the bottom was $config->httpHosts, which only contained the domains that were working. I added the other domains, and now the multisite module is working excellently.

Wao! thank you so much statestreet. You were the last piece to the puzzle. I just did a fresh install and read this entire thread.

For those who are wondering 

Follow arjen Instructions here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/1025-multisite/#entry20399

For dev or localhost you'll need to edit your host file for your second domain name so it points to the same directory

EG.

 127.0.0.1   madbox.com

You may need to edit your virtual host when it goes live so it points to the right directory. Doesn't really matter for dev.

<VirtualHost 127.0.0.1>
ServerName sandbox.com
ServerAlias madbox.com
DocumentRoot "C:/wamp/sandbox.com"
<Directory "C:/wamp/sandbox.com">
allow from all
order allow,deny
AllowOverride All
</Directory>
</VirtualHost> 

Then in the site/config.php you'll need to edit the httpHosts variable (last one)

EG.

$config->httpHosts = array('sandbox.com', 'www.sandbox.com','www.madbox.com','madbox.com');

Your last two posts really made me hopeful to solve my issue, but unfortunately it didn`t. 

I followed the instruction of multisite module and point my traffic of test.myseconddomain.com to

mymaindomain.com/testarea/processwire.

on mymaindomain.com/testarea/processwire/test.myseconddomain.com I can reach the page.

on test.myseconddomain.com I land on the level of mymaindomain.com (basic example site) of my installation.

I am using password protection for the hidden testarea in .htaccess. I also tested if this causes problems, but it does not work either way. Also I tried to put test.myseconddomain.com into the $config->httpHosts = array() 

but then I get 404.

what is the best structure for one install with one database and several different domains and one hidden testarea? 

my PW install now is in this testarea...

thank you so much for your help!

I need to create an offshoot site that shares some, but not all of the pages of the parent site. Is there any way to show pages from the parent site on subsite or do they have to be duplicated and made children of the subsite's home page?

How about something like $pages->get("/www.mainsite.com/page-needed/")->render();

Of course probably not render, but outputting the fields etc.

Actually, maybe not so much.

I have, for example, /about/ on the main site and I want to display the same page on the subsite. If I visit /subsite/about/ I get a 404.

Also, I've created a new template for the subsite home page which includes to a new global template (for different branding, navigation), but if I can get the same pages to show up on both main and subsites, how do I get the pages on the subsite to use the subsite global template instead of the of the main site?

Define a field type "page", name it like "includePage" or something like that and add it to your subsite's template. If you wish to include an other page, just select it in your subsite's page. In your subsite's template just add something like this on the top:

<?php
if(count($page->includePage)>0){        // is there a page to be included?
$page = $page->includePage->eq(0);      // overwrite page fields with the included page
}

Now the $page object is overwritten with the included page object.

So if I have:

Home

- About

- Subsite home

do you mean to include a page entry for About under Subsite home which then includes the main site's About page with the includePage fieldtype?

The only problem there is they also have an ever expanding news section that they also want to duplicate so that would mean having to do this for a lot of pages.

Well, then you have to think about some other approaches. Everything is possible.

Scenario 1: Duplicate all news:

- Use url segments. On subsite's overview list all news from main site and don't link to their url but to /subsite/news/$news->name. The /subsite/news/ overview page has url segments activated. You identify the news, include it the same way described above and you're done.

Scenario 2: Only selected news:

- Use a checkbox on the original news template and list only the news that are checked on the subsite. Rest as described in 1.

Another approach would be to use RSS for the import. As I said: Everything is possible, you only have to identify the approach which is less work for you and your client.

<?php
if(count($page->includePage)>0){        // is there a page to be included?
$page = $page->includePage->eq(0);      // overwrite page fields with the included page
}

I'm giving this a go and it seems to work fine for first level pages, but for second level pages I get the page title but not the rest of the content.

I also have some pages where I'm using functions and calling wire('page'). How do I update that to use the ID of the included page?

Do you have an example? If you use them in your template there is no need for wire(). Just use $page. If you are using custom modules for your site, I am not sure. Just show your example and I will check it.

For instance I've got something like this:

$outMain .= sponsor_row('Major Club Partners'); // $outMain is output in the global embedded template

and the function that outputs the data:

function sponsor_row($group) {
  foreach(wire('page')->sponsors as $sponsor) {
    if ($sponsor->sponsor_group->title == $group) {
      $output .= …
    }
  }
  return $output;
}

Well, your function also should work like this (assuming it is defined in your template):

function sponsor_row($group) {
  foreach($page->sponsors as $sponsor) {
    if ($sponsor->sponsor_group->title == $group) {
      $output .= …
    }
  }
  return $output;
}

Otherwise I need to know the environment. You also could handle over the $page object:

$outMain .= sponsor_row('Major Club Partners',$page);
function sponsor_row($group, $page) {
  foreach($page->sponsors as $sponsor) {
    if ($sponsor->sponsor_group->title == $group) {
      $output .= …
    }
  }
  return $output;
}

Actually, just tried

$outMain .= sponsor_row('Major Club Partners,$page');

and that's working fine. :)

Now I just need to know why my second level pages aren't outputting any content.

      Happy new year, everybody 🥬
      I've been sitting on this Dashboard module I made for a client and finally came around to cleaning it up and releasing it to the wider public. This is how it looks.
      ProcessWire Dashboard

      If anyone is interested in trying this out, please go ahead! I'd love to get some feedback on it. If this proves useful and survives some real-world testing, I'll add this to the module directory.
      Download
      You can find the latest release on Github.
      Documentation
      Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options.
      Custom Panels
      My goal was to make it really simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people.
       Disclaimer
      This is a pre-release version. Please treat it as such — don't install it on production sites. Just making sure 🍇
      Roadmap
      These are the things I'm looking to implement myself at some point. The wishlist is a lot longer, but those are the 80/20 items that I probably won't regret spending time on.
      Improve documentation & add examples ⚙️ Panel types Google Analytics ⚙️ Add new page  🔥 Drafts 🔥 At a glance / Page counter 404s  Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel panel groups with heading and spacing between ✅ panel wrappers as grid item (e.g. stacked notices) ✅ Admin themes support AdminThemeReno and AdminThemeDefault ✅ Shortcuts panel add a table layout with icon, title & summary ✅ Chart panel add default styles for common chart types ✅ load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array) Collection panel support image columns ✅ add buttons: view all & add new ✅

      This module is inspired by and similar to the Template Stubs module. The author of that module has not been active in the PW community for several years now and parts of the code for that module didn't make sense to me, so I decided to create my own module. Auto Template Stubs has only been tested with PhpStorm because that is the IDE that I use.
      Auto Template Stubs
      Automatically creates stub files for templates when fields or fieldgroups are saved.
      Stub files are useful if you are using an IDE (e.g. PhpStorm) that provides code assistance - the stub files let the IDE know what fields exist in each template and what data type each field returns. Depending on your IDE's features you get benefits such as code completion for field names as you type, type inference, inspection, documentation, etc.
      Installation
      Install the Auto Template Stubs module.
      Configuration
      You can change the class name prefix setting in the module config if you like. It's good to use a class name prefix because it reduces the chance that the class name will clash with an existing class name.
      The directory path used to store the stub files is configurable.
      There is a checkbox to manually trigger the regeneration of all stub files if needed.
      Usage
      Add a line near the top of each of your template files to tell your IDE what stub class name to associate with the $page variable within the template file. For example, with the default class name prefix you would add the following line at the top of the home.php template file:
      /** @var tpl_home $page */ Now enjoy code completion, etc, in your IDE.

      Adding data types for non-core Fieldtype modules
      The module includes the data types returned by all the core Fieldtype modules. If you want to add data types returned by one or more non-core Fieldtype modules then you can hook the AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes() method. For example, in /site/ready.php:
      // Add data types for some non-core Fieldtype modules $wire->addHookAfter('AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes', function(HookEvent $event) { $extra_types = [ 'FieldtypeDecimal' => 'string', 'FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker' => 'LeafletMapMarker', 'FieldtypeRepeaterMatrix' => 'RepeaterMatrixPageArray', 'FieldtypeTable' => 'TableRows', ]; $event->return = $event->return + $extra_types; }); Credits
      Inspired by and much credit to the Template Stubs module by mindplay.dk.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.60
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      ⚠️ NOTICE: 1.5.60 is an important security patch-release for an XSS vulnerability discovered by @phlp. It's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that all Jumplinks users update to the latest version as soon as possible.
      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! 🙂
