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.

      Hi! I've created a small Inputfield module called InputfieldFloatRange which allows you to use an HTML5 <input type="range" ../> slider as an InputField. I needed something like this for a project where the client needs to be able to tweak this value more based on 'a feeling' than just entering a boring old number. Maybe more people can use this so I'm hereby releasing it into the wild.  
       
      What is it?
      The missing range slider Inputfield for Processwire. 
      What does it do?
      This module extends InputfieldFloat and allows you to use HTML5 range sliders for number fields in your templates.
      It includes a visible and editable value field, to override/tweak the value if required.  
      Features
      Min/max values Precision (number of decimals) Steps (Read more) Manual override of the selected value (will still adhere to the rules above) Usage
      Clone / zip repo Install FieldtypeFloatRange, this automatically installs the Inputfield Create new field of type `Float (range)` or convert an existing `Float`, `Integer` or `Text` field. To render the field's value simply echo `$page->field` Demo
      A field with Min=0, Max=1, Step=0.2, Precision=2

      Field with settings Min=0, Max=200, Step=0.25, Precision=2

       
      Todo
      Make the display-field's size configurable (will use the Input Size field setting)  Hopefully become redundant If it's usable for others I'll add it to the Modules list  
      Changelog
      v002
      - Fix issue where setting the step value to an empty value created problem with validation
      - Make the display-field optional 
      v001
      - Initial release
       
      Thanks!

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      Why?
      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Installation
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. Field widths entered into the Template Field Widths inputfield are only applied if the Edit Template form is submitted with the Template Field Widths inputfield in an opened state. "Collapsed" is the recommended setting if you think you might also use core inputs for setting field widths in a template context. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.

      This module allows you to automatically rename file (including image) uploads according to a configurable format
      This module lets you define as many rules as you need to determine how uploaded files will be named and you can have different rules for different pages, templates, fields, and file extensions, or one rule for all uploads. Renaming works for files uploaded via the admin interface and also via the API, including images added from remote URLs.   Github: https://github.com/adrianbj/CustomUploadNames
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-custom-upload-names/
      Renaming Rules
      The module config allows you to set an unlimited number of Rename Rules. You can define rules to specific fields, templates, pages, and file extensions. If a rule option is left blank, the rule with be applied to all fields/templates/pages/extensions. Leave Filename Format blank to prevent renaming for a specific field/template/page combo, overriding a more general rule. Rules are processed in order, so put more specific rules before more general ones. You can drag to change the order of rules as needed. The following variables can be used in the filename format: $page, $template, $field, and $file. For some of these (eg. $field->description), if they haven't been filled out and saved prior to uploading the image, renaming won't occur on upload, but will happen on page save (could be an issue if image has already been inserted into RTE/HTML field before page save). Some examples: $page->title mysite-{$template->name}-images $field->label $file->description {$page->name}-{$file->filesize}-kb prefix-[Y-m-d_H-i-s]-suffix (anything inside square brackets is is considered to be a PHP date format for the current date/time) randstring[n] (where n is the number of characters you want in the string) ### (custom number mask, eg. 001 if more than one image with same name on a page. This is an enhanced version of the automatic addition of numbers if required) If 'Rename on Save' is checked files will be renamed again each time a page is saved (admin or front-end via API). WARNING: this setting will break any direct links to the old filename, which is particularly relevant for images inserted into RTE/HTML fields. The Filename Format can be defined using plain text and PW $page variable, for example: mysite-{$page->path} You can preserve the uploaded filename for certain rules. This will allow you to set a general renaming rule for your entire site, but then add a rule for a specific page/template/field that does not rename the uploaded file. Just simply build the rule, but leave the Filename Format field empty. You can specify an optional character limit (to nearest whole word) for the length of the filename - useful if you are using $page->path, $path->name etc and have very long page names - eg. news articles, publication titles etc. NOTE - if you are using ProcessWire's webp features, be sure to use the useSrcExt because if you have jpg and png files on the same page and your rename rules result in the same name, you need to maintain the src extension so they are kept as separate files.
      $config->webpOptions = array(     'useSrcExt' => false, // Use source file extension in webp filename? (file.jpg.webp rather than file.webp) ); Acknowledgments
      The module config settings make use of code from Pete's EmailToPage module and the renaming function is based on this code from Ryan: http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3299-ability-to-define-convention-for-image-and-file-upload-names/?p=32623 (also see this post for his thoughts on file renaming and why it is the lazy way out - worth a read before deciding to use this module). 
       
       
      NOTE:
      This should not be needed on most sites, but I work with lots of sites that host PDFs and photos/vectors that are available for download and I have always renamed the files on upload because clients will often upload files with horrible meaningless filenames like:
