Multisite

Recommended Posts

the page is hidden.

is all abit backwards currently, I can no longer get to the multi site page as it redirects me to the homepage but with the wrong domain name.

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

this gives me Home which every domain i plugin


I unhide the page and it appearded active in the menu making it look like it was home for both domains, which is very confusing

Well it would give you current multisite domain. As it redirects to the domain it looks like it works. If you could give access I'm sure I can figure it out.

I think it may cause you would not setup main homepage as root but also as multisite subfolder. Never tried a setup you have but cant say without testing and reating the code.

I use soma's module on different sites without problems. Some with root set as one domain, children pages with others and some with different children pages and root not defined as domain. This cannot be the problem.

We use the module on a lot of sites too like MadeMyDay's setup. Never had any real trouble.

will try and delete the apache settings as I can't see anything else that might be wrong for that incoming domain in PW. If not I'll have to abandon the multisite and spin out to it's own PW install. Thanks for everyones help though and I'll report back

I'm I was (solution below) experiencing the same as below on PW 2.5.2, after installing via softaculus(which uses minimal site profile) on a cpanel based hosting:

Currently I'm trying to get this to work, but I'm seriously questioning if I'm using this right. What I initially thought that had to do the following steps:

1) Make sure all the traffic from www.seconddomain.com points to the home directory of the www.maindomain.com. (checked)
2) Install the module and make sure that www.seconddomain.com is added to the textarea. (checked)
3) Create a new page with the template 'home' with the title matching the domain - in this case www.seconddomain.com. Status of the page is published and hidden. (checked)

Then I thought I have to add another page to make this work:

4) Create a page with a template underneath the 'second' homepage called 'Testpage'. Status of the page is published.

I can reach the page using the following URL:
 

http://www.maindomain.com/www.seconddomain.com/testpage/
But I can't reach the page using this URL:

http://www.seconddomain.com/testpage/
Things I've noticed

1. When I try to reach www.seconddomain.com it displays a 404 error. (see below).
 

except,

When I try to reach www.seconddomain.com it displays as if I'm using www.maindomain.com

Also, http://www.seconddomain.com/www.seconddomain.com/ redirects to http://www.seconddomain.com/

SOLVED: needed to add www.seconddomain.com to $config->httpHosts in /site/config.php

Hi I am using Nginx and for me your solution is not working. 

My plan was to redirect subdomains to the specific subpages the plugin was for me the best way to do this.

I added the sites named sub1.domain.com, sub2.domain.com, ... in the textarea and in the $config->httpHosts array. 

When I send the request to the sub1.domain.com I get the home page of domain.com but not to the sub1.domain.com page which is created under the root.

Is it possible that I have to change something in the Nginx Conf?

Hello,

it seems I have the same problem addressed here before.

I've upgraded PW to 2.5.18, previous it was PW 2.4.1

All went well, except for the Mulltisite module... 

It's working, but not as it previously did... the links actually include the second domain

http://www.domain2.com/domain2.com/test-page/

before it was:

http://www.domain2.com/test-page/ [which return a 404 page]

which is the idea off course... also with google in mind, it's not ideal....

did I miss something somewhere?

I'm using Soma's version BTW [also tried with Apeisa's version, same thing FYI].

Greetings...

How is your setup?

Looks like there's maybe this issue with newline in the config textarea for domain

If you change

$this->subdomainsArray = explode("\r\n", strtolower($this->subdomains));

To

$this->subdomainsArray = explode("\n", strtolower($this->subdomains));

Does it work?

This is the code that should do a redirect when a real url containing the domain is found.

https://github.com/somatonic/Multisite/blob/master/Multisite.module#L120

But even then even if the redirect isn't working the page should still show fine. Nothing there in the module that would do a 404.

The 404 seems to be an issue that the domain isn't found. But that wouldn't come from updating PW after all.

Wow, fast!

I've changed the line, but no effect...

oh, it's working... only the subdomain url isn't stripped and I have no idea why... 

Originally the second domain had a different template [which I called multisite_home], but somehow since the upgrade that is ignored [per default it uses 'home']. Which I don't mind actually.

Foreach domain I do have a 'homepage' call...

$homepage = $pages->get(1'); for the root

$homepage = $pages->get(1373'); for the second domain

it used to work just fine...

Thx!

Edit: deleting the domains in the module makes no difference, so I guess the module isn't working at all.... Maybe I should revert back to 2.4.x

Edit2: reverting back to 2.4.1 and everything works as expected again [will try again with an 2.5.xx later]

Edit3: reverted back the line you suggested to edit, the \r is back while textarea is being saved :-)

I don't use MAMP, but what you have to basicly is this:

1) Install ProcessWire with for example the domain maindomain.localhost which points to /Arjen/Sites/maindomain.com/.

2) Make sure it's working fine and install the Multisite plugin.

3) Create an entry in your virtual host file and point that domain to the domain in step 1. For example point seconddomain.localhost to /Arjen/Sites/maindomain.com/ as well.

4) Now both maindomain.localhost and seconddomain.localhost will load the same website.

5) Follow instructions above.

There is no need for this complexity. If you are already using a vhost that works it might help if you simply add more server aliases to your vhost config ie. :

ServerAlias *.domain.dev
ServerAlias *.domain.dev.*.xip.io
 
for me resulting in:
 
# project-domain.dev.conf
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "/home/dirr/to/server/project-name"
    ServerName project-domain.dev
    ServerAlias project-domain.dev.*.xip.io
    ServerAlias *.project-domain.dev
    ServerAlias *.project-domain.dev.*.xip.io

    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

    <Directory /home/dirr/to/server/project-name>
        Options FollowSymLinks
        Allow from All
        AllowOverride All
    </Directory>
</VirtualHost>
 
In my case the project-name is a symlink pointing to the root of the project,
and project-domain is the domain for the project that you added to hosts file

Thanks for sharing bitlinguist. You are right, there are several ways to accomplish this. In the case you can control the vhost there is indeed no need for a second vhost file since you can use an alias. The point I tried to explain (in simple steps with basic apache knowledge) is that you need two domains to point to to same server directory.

hi guys!

unfortunately i can't get soma's version of the module to work. i have a vagrantbox and configured my hosts file to serve the following domains:

config.hostsupdater.aliases = ["web.dev", "multi1.web.dev", "multi2.web.dev", "web1.dev", "web2.dev", "www.web1.dev", "www.web2.dev"]
  • i can reach a clean 2.6 installation via all domains
  • i installed somas module
  • i created 2 new pages: /home/www.web1.dev and /home/www.web2.dev
  • when i visit www.web1.dev -> still the frontpage of the installation (default intermediate profile); same for www.web2.dev
  • i can visit those pages via www.web1.dev/www.web1.dev/ and same for web2

i tried apeisa's version and it worked - unfortunately i did not make it to get subdomains working (site1.web.dev, site2.web.dev). but anyway i would prefer to use somas module :)

do you think that could be related to vagrant? unfortunately i have no live server where i can try it out at the moment...

help would be very, very appreciated!

ps: module configuration:

www.web1.dev
www.web2.dev

tried everything with and without www

I was a bit confused at first because i did not see the update on the 'official' Github repo (apeisa/Multisite). Wouldn't it be worthwhile to add this to there?

hey soma,

i did some testing the last hours and found out, that example.com/admin does NOT work while example.com/admin/ (with trailing slash) does.

not really a big problem, but maybe there is a quick and easy fix for that?

thanks again for your support - everything else working like a charm so far!

Sorry Bernhard haven't noticed your earlier posts.

I experienced something like that with the backend admin url, but not sure anymore what it was. I have a project where I use it but that is a even a newer version than the current. So I might have it already fixed there.

The other is something I see a problem with current implementation using strpos() on those domains. 

"site1.dev" is found in "sub1.site1.dev" thats why you have a problem. I'm not sure about a fix yet. I haven't got a testinstall I can play with currently, but will look into it soon. Thx.

hi soma, thank you - all the problems are not time critical for now ;)

shouldn't checking the strpos to be < 1 be enough for that?

https://github.com/somatonic/Multisite/blob/master/Multisite.module#L62

if(strpos($httpHost, $subdomain) !== false AND strpos($httpHost, $subdomain) < 1) {

at least it works for me here on my dev.

but that is a even a newer version than the current

that makes me curious?! ;)

one other thing: I'm wondering why the module does not take the valid multisite-domains from the processwire config? i always have to add new domains in both locations. ok, that's not a big deal, but i'm sure there is some more important thing behind it? any problem i don't see that could appear when "synching" multisite hosts with pw config hosts?

"it" is the GET parameter, what acts as access-point to ProcessWire. All requests are rewritten by the .htaccess file to something like this:

yourdomain.com/index.php?it=/subpage/moresubpages/test (see here)

Therefore it's strange that this index is undefined. It's one of few necessities in pw.

      ProcessWire InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDuplicate
      Thanks to the great ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use a content module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      This module extends the commercial ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" by the function to duplicate repeater items from one page to another page. The condition is that the target field is the same matrix field from which the item is duplicated. This module is currently understood as proof of concept. There are a few limitations that need to be considered. The intention of the module is that this functionality is integrated into the core of RepeaterMatrix and does not require an extra module.
      Check out the screencast
      What the module can do
      Duplicate multible repeater items from one page to another No matter how complex the item is Full support for file and image fields Multilingual support Support of Min and Max settings Live synchronization of clipboard between multiple browser tabs. Copy an item and simply switch the browser tab to the target page and you will immediately see the past button Support of multiple RepeaterMatrix fields on one page Configurable which roles and fields are excluded Configurable dialogs for copy and paste Duplicated items are automatically pasted to the end of the target field and set to hidden status so that changes are not directly published Automatic clipboard update when other items are picked Automatically removes old clipboard data if it is not pasted within 6 hours Delete clipboard itself by clicking the selected item again Benefit: unbelievably fast workflow and content replication What the module can't do
      Before an item can be duplicated in its current version, the source page must be saved. This means that if you make changes to an item and copy this, the old saved state will be duplicated Dynamic loading is currently not possible. Means no AJAX. When pasting, the target page is saved completely No support for nested repeater items. Currently only first level items can be duplicated. Means a repeater field in a repeater field cannot be duplicated. Workaround: simply duplicate the parent item Dynamic reloading and adding of repeater items cannot be registered. Several interfaces and events from the core are missing. The initialization occurs only once after the page load event Changelog

      A new module that hasn't had a lot of testing yet. Please do your own testing before deploying on any production website.
      Custom Paths
      Allows any page to have a custom path/URL.
      Note: Custom Paths is incompatible with the core LanguageSupportPageNames module. I have no experience working with LanguageSupportPageNames or multi-language sites in general so I'm not in a position to work out if a fix is possible. If anyone with multi-language experience can contribute a fix it would be much appreciated!
      Screenshot

      Usage
      The module creates a field named custom_path on install. Add the custom_path field to the template of any page you want to set a custom path for. Whatever path is entered into this field determines the path and URL of the page ($page->path and $page->url). Page numbers and URL segments are supported if these are enabled for the template, and previous custom paths are managed by PagePathHistory if that module is installed.
      The custom_path field appears on the Settings tab in Page Edit by default but there is an option in the module configuration to disable this if you want to position the field among the other template fields.
      If the custom_path field is populated for a page it should be a path that is relative to the site root and that starts with a forward slash. The module prevents the same custom path being set for more than one page.
      The custom_path value takes precedence over any ProcessWire path. You can even override the Home page by setting a custom path of "/" for a page.
      It is highly recommended to set access controls on the custom_path field so that only privileged roles can edit it: superuser-only is recommended.
      It is up to the user to set and maintain suitable custom paths for any pages where the module is in use. Make sure your custom paths are compatible with ProcessWire's $config and .htaccess settings, and if you are basing the custom path on the names of parent pages you will probably want to have a strategy for updating custom paths if parent pages are renamed or moved.
      Example hooks to Pages::saveReady
      You might want to use a Pages::saveReady hook to automatically set the custom path for some pages. Below are a couple of examples.
      1. In this example the start of the custom path is fixed but the end of the path will update dynamically according to the name of the page:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'my_template') { $page->custom_path = "/some-custom/path-segments/$page->name/"; } }); 2. The Custom Paths module adds a new Page::realPath method/property that can be used to get the "real" ProcessWire path to a page that might have a custom path set. In this example the custom path for news items is derived from the real ProcessWire path but a parent named "news-items" is removed:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'news_item') { $page->custom_path = str_replace('/news-items/', '/', $page->realPath); } }); Caveats
      The custom paths will be used automatically for links created in CKEditor fields, but if you have the "link abstraction" option enabled for CKEditor fields (Details > Markup/HTML (Content Type) > HTML Options) then you will see notices from MarkupQA warning you that it is unable to resolve the links.
      Installation
      Install the Custom Paths module.
      Uninstallation
      The custom_path field is not automatically deleted when the module is uninstalled. You can delete it manually if the field is no longer needed.

      Hey folks!
      I'm happy to finally introduce a project I've been working on for quite a while now: it's called Wireframe, and it is an output framework for ProcessWire.
      Note that I'm posting this in the module development area, maily because this project is still in rather early stage. I've built a couple of sites with it myself, and parts of the codebase have been powering some pretty big and complex sites for many years now, but this should still be considered a soft launch 🙂
      --
      Long story short, Wireframe is a module that provides the "backbone" for building sites (and apps) with ProcessWire using an MVC (or perhaps MVVM... one of those three or four letter acronyms anyway) inspired methodology. You could say that it's an output strategy, but I prefer the term "output framework", since in my mind the word "strategy" means something less tangible. A way of doing things, rather than a tool that actually does things.
      Wireframe (the module) provides a basic implementation for some familiar MVC concepts, such as Controllers and a View layer – the latter of which consists of layouts, partials, and template-specific views. There's no "model" layer, since in this context ProcessWire is the model. As a module Wireframe is actually quite simple – not even nearly the biggest one I've built – but there's still quite a bit of stuff to "get", so I've put together a demo & documentation site for it at https://wireframe-framework.com/.
      In addition to the core module, I'm also working on a couple of site profiles based on it. My current idea is actually to keep the module very light-weight, and implement most of the "opinionated" stuff in site profiles and/or companion modules. For an example MarkupMenu (which I released a while ago) was developed as one of those "companion modules" when I needed a menu module to use on the site profiles.
      Currently there are two public site profiles based on Wireframe:
      site-wireframe-docs is the demo&docs site mentioned above, just with placeholder content replaced with placeholder content. It's not a particularly complex site, but I believe it's still a pretty nice way to dig into the Wireframe module. site-wireframe-boilerplate is a boilerplate (or starter) site profile based on the docs site. This is still very much a work in progress, but essentially I'm trying to build a flexible yet full-featured starter profile you can just grab and start building upon. There will be a proper build process for resources, it will include most of the basic features one tends to need from site to site, etc. --
      Requirements and getting started:
      Wireframe can be installed just like any ProcessWire module. Just clone or download it to your site/modules/ directory and install. It doesn't, though, do a whole lot of stuff on itself – please check out the documentation site for a step-by-step guide on setting up the directory structure, adding the "bootstrap file", etc. You may find it easier to install one of the site profiles mentioned above, but note that this process involves the use of Composer. In the case of the site profiles you can install ProcessWire as usual and download or clone the site profile directory into your setup, but after that you should run "composer install" to get all the dependencies – including the Wireframe module – in place. Hard requirements for Wireframe are ProcessWire 3.0.112 and PHP 7.1+. The codebase is authored with current PHP versions in mind, and while running it on 7.0 may be possible, anything below that definitely won't work. A feature I added just today to the Wireframe module is that in case ProcessWire has write access to your site/templates/ directory, you can use the module settings screen to create the expected directories automatically. Currently that's all, and the module won't – for an example – create Controllers or layouts for you, so you should check out the site profiles for examples on these. (I'm probably going to include some additional helper features in the near future.)
      --
      This project is loosely based on an earlier project called pw-mvc, i.e. the main concepts (such as Controllers and the View layer) are very similar. That being said, Wireframe is a major upgrade in terms of both functionality and architecture: namespaces and autoloader support are now baked in, the codebase requires PHP 7, Controllers are classes extending \Wireframe\Controller (instead of regular "flat" PHP files), implementation based on a module instead of a collection of drop-in files, etc.
      While Wireframe is indeed still in a relatively early stage (0.3.0 was launched today, in case version numbers matter) for the most part I'm happy with the way it works, and likely won't change it too drastically anytime soon – so feel free to give it a try, and if you do, please let me know how it went. I will continue building upon this project, and I am also constantly working on various side projects, such as the site profiles and a few unannounced helper modules.
      I should probably add that while Wireframe is not hard to use, it is more geared towards those interested in "software development" type methodology. With future updates to the module, the site profiles, and the docs I hope to lower the learning curve, but certain level of "developer focus" will remain. Although of course the optimal outcome would be if I could use this project to lure more folks towards that end of the spectrum... 🙂

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      Advantages
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no JavaScript or image required.
      Disadvantages
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode. There are 4 different view modes.
      View mode "Day" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records. View mode "Month" shows the total of all visitors per day from the first to the last day of the selected month. View mode "Year" shows the total of all visitors per month from the first to the last month of the selected year. View mode "Total" shows the total of all visitors per year for all recorded years. Please note that multiple visits from the same IP address within the selected period are counted as a single visitor.
      Settings
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      IP2Location
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      Dragscroll
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).

      This module allows you to integrate hCaptcha bot / spam protection into ProcessWire forms. hCaptcha is a great alternative to Google ReCaptcha, especially if you are in the EU and need to comply with privacy regulations.

      The development of this module is sponsored by schwarzdesign.
      The module is built as an Inputfield, allowing you to integrate it into any ProcessWire form you want. It's primarily intended for frontend forms and can be added to Form Builder forms for automatic spam protection. There's a step-by-step guide for adding the hCaptcha widget to Form Builder forms in the README, as well as instructions for API usage.
      Features
      Inputfield that displays an hCaptcha widget in ProcessWire forms. The inputfield verifies the hCaptcha response upon submission, and adds a field error if it is invalid. All hCaptcha configuration options for the widget (theme, display size etc) can be changed through the inputfield configuration, as well as programmatically. hCaptcha script options can be changed through a hook. Error messages can be translated through ProcessWire's site translations. hCaptcha secret keys and site-keys can be set for each individual inputfield or globally in your config.php. Error codes and failures are logged to help you find configuration errors. Please check the README for setup instructions.
