Multisite

Recommended Posts

Well you just override the current page. If there are children involved you have to define those children before switching the page object. Otherwise children are empty.

Sorry, that's gone over my head. Both the parents and children are using the same basic page template.

Perhaps a screenshot would help with annotations which page should display what and how they are related. Also the complete code of your template would help.

Also: perhaps start a new thread, because this is pretty specific and this thread is getting longer and longer ;).

Hi Forum,

I'm having a hard time to get the original module (Apeisa's one) to work with 2.5.

I did setup a bunch of 12 landingpages (each with a little bit different content but sharing the same template). I added their domains to the module settings as well as to $config->httpHosts array. 10 of my 12 domains were working fine, but 2 didn't - they redirected to the root. I triple checked everything but didn't find out what was wrong.

Unfortunately during this debug process I must have added a domain twice to the module settings. This made PW throw a 404 on the admin and on the frontend side for all domains making the admin inaccessible.

I've temporarily made it back into the admin by renaming the module to multisite-old.module. But I can't figure out how to "reset" the module settings to its former or a fresh state (replacing multisite.module with a new file from Github doesn't work) nor how to get all of my 12 domains work.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

I was wondering what the DNS settings for the second domain should be as I couldnt see anything obvious here.

Anyone? I've tried forwarding the domain but that doesnt work (well in terms of the multi-site working). What would the DNS changes be?

Make sure domain B points to the same server (A record or CNAME) as domain A. And on the serverside you have to make sure that domain B it pointing to the same directory as domain A.

OK cool. Is there any way of doing this without root access? I'm using Apache, any good links for how to set up server side? Thanks!

Depends on your server configuration. The domainname you can alter yourself by changing the DNS. The server part you should pickup with your hosting company. If you run an unmanaged server, it (again) depends on which OS you use. A quick search on Google should help you out.

still struggling a bit on this, is there any docs?

This is my DNS, the host has informed me its pointing the to the same directory as horton-stephens.com when incoming on hortonsshortuns.com (as i dont have root access :(

www.hortonsshortuns.com & hortonsshortuns.com set in module settings and www.hortonsshortuns.com page name for the new site. But still getting the homepage of the other site, should apache be sending to /www.hortonsshortuns.com not / ??

* A     80.87.143.6 * CNAME     www.horton-stephens....   @ MX 10   mx0.123-reg.co.uk.   @ MX 20   mx1.123-reg.co.uk. @ A     80.87.143.6   www A     80.87.143.6

No, no. Apache has nothing to do with this module. The module only identifies the page name, does some path voodoo and that's it. No further server side configuration needed.

Your mistake is that you added several different domain names in the module's configuration. So basically it has to be configured like that:

- Homepage

-- sub page 1

-- sub page 2

[...]

-- sub site (with page name "hortonsshortuns.com")

--- sub site sub page 1

--- sub site sub page 2

--- sub site sub page 3

[...]

And in your module's config you only define "hortonsshortuns.com" as another domain. The www stuff should be configured with htaccess, but never ever put several domain variations in the module's config. This has to go wrong.

Still struggling. changed the the config to hortonsshortuns.com only and changed the title and path of the subpage to hortonsshortuns.com could there be anything else wrong with my settings above as im still only getting the home of the main site? Thanks for you help

Hard to say... You type in hortonsshortuns.com (without www) and then you get redirected to horton-stephens.com, not to some 404 page? Do you have one (404) and are you sure you are on the homepage? You haven't changed your .htaccess I assume?

I've not changed the .htaccess just added the above in the DNS and on the server. You don't go to a 404 (though there is one obvisouly) but just land on the home for horton-stephens.com

Sorry, just trying to get an idea of what's going on here.

So far it sounds like your domains are configured correctly, or at least they work (mostly) as expected. The fact that hortonsshortuns.com is identical in content to www.hortonsshortuns.com and both versions work is a problem (for this module and from SEO point of view) but as long as you use the version that you've configured this module to use, it's not really the issue right now.

Anyway, this makes me think that there could be something wrong with the Multisite module config or the page it's trying to point the user to. If you're using Soma's variation of Multisite, I don't really know anything about that (never used it), but:

It might be helpful if you could post here literally how you've configured the module (every config setting and value exactly as they are on your site, either as text or screenshots)? Also, just to rule out any inconsistencies, please double-check (or triple-check, or whatever) that the related page branch is correctly named (name field, not title) and placed in the page tree below the root page, something like this:

- Home
    - whatever
    - whatever
    - hortonsshortuns.com
    - whatever
    - whatever
    - ... and so on

Looks like this has been way more difficult than it should've been, but hopefully we'll get this sorted :)

Looks ok but have no idea. Everybody seems to have problems with it except me. :)

I only used multisite on where all pages are multisites, there's no default home. But I think it doesn't matter.

What happens if you enter the direct url to the domain folder

http://domain.com/hortonsshortuns.com

What happens if you output 

echo "subdomain: " . $modules->Multisite->subdomain;

in your template?

Maybe you can debug the module and try to locate where it's failing?

Yeah. It works that way.

Have you tried what I told you?

      Needed a really simple solution to embed audio files within page content and couldn't find a module for that, so here we go. Textformatter Audio Embed works a bit like Textformatter Video Embed, converting this:
      <p>https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3</p> Into this:
      <audio controls class="TextformatterAudioEmbed"> <source src="https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3" type="audio/mpeg"> </audio> The audio element has pretty good browser support, so quite often this should be enough to get things rolling 🙂

      Hi all, I am going round and round in circles and would greatly appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction.
      I am sure I am doing something dumb, or missing something I should know, but don't. Story of my life 😉

      Playing round with a module and my basic problem is I want to upload an image and also use InputfieldMarkup and other Inputfields.
      Going back and forth between trying an api generated page defining Fieldgroup, Template, Fields, Page and the InputfieldWrapper method.

      InputfieldWrapper method works great for all the markup stuff, but I just can't wrap my head around what I need to do to save the image to the database.
      Can generate a Field for it (thanks to the api investigations) but not sure what I need to do to link the Inputfield to that. Tried a lot of stuff from various threads, of varying dates without luck.
      Undoubtedly not helped by me not knowing enough.

      Defining Fieldgroup etc through the api seems nice and clean and works great for the images but I can't wrap my head around how/if I can add/append/hook the InputfieldWrapper/InputfieldMarkup stuff I'd like to include on that template as well. Not even sure if it should be where it is on ___install with the Fieldtype stuff or later on . Not getting Tracy errors, just nothing seems to happen.
      If anyone has any ideas or can point me in the right direction, that would be great because at the moment I am stumbling round in the dark.

      Since it's featured in ProcessWire Weekly #310, now is the time to make it official:
      Here is Twack!
      I really like the following introduction from ProcessWire Weekly, so I hope it is ok if I use it here, too. Look at the project's README for more details!
      Twack is a new — or rather newish — third party module for ProcessWire that provides support for reusable components in an Angular-inspired way. Twack is implemented as an installable module, and a collection of helper and base classes. Key concepts introduced by this module are:
      Components, which have separate views and controllers. Views are simple PHP files that handle the output for the component, whereas controllers extend the TwackComponent base class and provide additional data handling capabilities. Services, which are singletons that provide a shared service where components can request data. The README for Twack uses a NewsService, which returns data related to news items, as an example of a service. Twack components are designed for reusability and encapsulating a set of features for easy maintainability, can handle hierarchical or recursive use (child components), and are simple to integrate with an existing site — even when said site wasn't originally developed with Twack.
      A very basic Twack component view could look something like this:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; ?> <h1>Hello World!</h1> And here's how you could render it via the API:
      <?php namespace Processwire; $twack = $modules->get('Twack'); $hello = $twack->getNewComponent('HelloWorld'); ?> <html> <head> <title>Hello World</title> </head> <body> <?= $hello->render() ?> </body> </html> Now, just to add a bit more context, here's a simple component controller:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; class HelloWorld extends TwackComponent { public function __construct($args) { parent::__construct($args); $this->title = 'Hello World!'; if(isset($args['title'])) { $this->title = $args['title']; } } } As you can see, there's not a whole lot new stuff to learn here if you'd like to give Twack a try in one of your projects. The Twack README provides a really informative and easy to follow introduction to all the key concepts (as well as some additional examples) so be sure to check that out before getting started. 
      Twack is in development for several years and I use it for every new project I build. Also integrated is an easy to handle workflow to make outputs as JSON, so it can be used to build responses for a REST-api as well. I will work that out in one section in the readme as well. 
      If you want to see the module in an actual project, I have published the code of www.musical-fabrik.de in a repository. It runs completely with Twack and has an app-endpoint with ajax-output as well.
      I really look forward to hear, what you think of Twack🥳!

      Page Reference Default Value
      Most ProcessWire core inputfield types that can be used with a Page Reference field support a "Default value" setting. This module extends support for default values to the following core inputfield types:
      Page List Select Page List Select Multiple Page Autocomplete (single and multiple) Seeing as these inputfield types only support the selection of pages a Page List Select / Page List Select Multiple is used for defining the default value instead of the Text / Textarea field used by the core for other inputfield types. This makes defining a default value a bit more user-friendly.
      Note that as per the core "Default value" setting, the Page Reference field must be set to "required" in order for the default value to be used.
