Not completely sure what happened, but i upgraded Tracy on a site running 2.7.3 and it killed the site. I fixed the permissions on all of the Tracy files which were set incorrectly after upgrade, but this didn't prevent the issue.

 

Error: Call to a member function queryString() on null (line 507 of ....wire/core/WireInput.php)
This error message was shown because you are logged in as a Superuser. Error has been logged.

Do you have the very latest version of Tracy - that PW 2.x problem was reported already and I fixed in in 4.0.1, unless it is occurring for some other reason as well.

It's running 'version' => '4.0.4',

Thanks. Can you please try replacing lines 227 and 228 of TracyDebugger.module:

        // don't init Tracy for the PW Notifications module polling
        if(strpos($this->wire('input')->queryString(), 'Notifications=update') !== false) return;

with:

        // don't init Tracy for the PW Notifications module polling
        if($this->wire('input')) {
            $queryString = $this->wire('input')->queryString();
        }
        else {
            $info = parse_url($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
            $queryString = $info['query'];            
        }
        if(strpos($queryString, 'Notifications=update') !== false) return;

OK - thanks @adrian i will need to test this after 5pm (i think the owners are working in the admin so I don't want to crash the site during NY business hrs..)

No problem - thanks and sorry for the problems in the first place!

Just an FYI why this is happening. It turns out that I had to move lots of logic from ready() into init() to fix some more SessionHandlerDB issues. The problem is that $input seems to be available much earlier in PW 3 than it was in PW 2, hence the reporting of $input as null.

Hi everyone!

Introducing the new Style Admin by Server Type  feature. Hopefully this will reduce the chance of accidentally editing the wrong version of a site when you have more than one open in different tabs.

Firstly, a huge shoutout to @szabesz for the idea for this new feature and for lots of testing and suggestions to improve it. Also @tpr chipped in with some CSS help yet again!

This feature adds a ribbon down the side of the admin to let you know what version of the site you are on, eg. local, dev, staging, etc.

Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 3.11.24 PM.png

 

Firstly you will need to enable it in the config settings. Then you'll want to set up your various server types and colors. It comes with the following defaults.

Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 3.13.02 PM.png

 

If you don't like the side ribbon, you can actually style the output exactly how you want.

Admin styling: adding "pointer-events: none" could be useful I think.

Hey @tpr - where do you think this should be applied? Sorry if I am missing the obvious :)

To the recently added staging bar. In AOS for example it partly covers the sidebar so items loose hover state when you move the mouse over the bar.

Ok gotcha - I see how it helps now. I had a quick look and couldn't figure out what it achieved, but now I see and agree it's a little nicer. I wish there was a way to not have it partly cover the sidebar, but with those elements being absolutely positioned, I don't see an option. I think what I ended up with is a decent compromise though - it's narrow enough that it doesn't interfere, but is still obvious enough. If anyone has any better ideas I'd be happy to change.

A few updates to the server type indicator ribbon:

  1. It's now possible to display it on the frontend as well. It might seem weird, but on occasion I have been looking at the frontend in the wrong tab (live vs dev) and wondering why my changes aren't doing anything :)
  2. You can now hide the indicator along with the Tracy debug bar when you use the hide icon.
  3. Here is the css to use if you'd prefer to have the indicator along the bottom:
body::before {
    content: "[type]";
    background: [color];
    position: fixed;
    left: 0;
    bottom: 0;
    color: #ffffff;
    width: 100%;
    padding: 0;
    text-align: left;
    text-indent: 5px;
    font-weight: 600;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    z-index: 29999;
    font-size: 15px;
    height: 22px;
    line-height: 22px;
    pointer-events: none;
}

which looks like this rather than the default sidebar. It is of course also fixed so it always visible when you scroll.

Another minor (but hopefully useful addition) - you can now use keyboard shortcuts to move between items in the console panel history stack.

Back: CTRL+CMD+↑
Forward: CTRL+CMD+↓

The up and down arrows are to mimic unix based terminal history shortcuts. Unfortunately I had to add the CTRL+CMD in there as well because it's hard to find a combination that isn't already used for something else, either by the browser or ACE editor.

Anyway, hope you will find it useful for speedy switching back and forward between snippets of code you have recently run.

just popping by to say that Tracy made it possible for me to convert an old site where i was using direct output, to a delayed output model, which i needed to be able to handle the new requirements of the site; in particular, the template path feature was crucial – i was able to simply duplicate each template one at a time, rename to -dev, and work on the conversion until it was ready... Also the new styling looks great!

Thanks for the feedback @Macrura - I have often wondered how much use the template path (and template editor) panels were getting. Glad to hear that it helped you out :)

yeah, when i first started the conversion, i was basically scratching my head about how hard/complex it would be to change from direct to delayed; At some point along the way i remembered the tracy template path, and after that it just went really fast.. now that site's code has been completely refactored and it's so much cleaner!

Hi @adrian

Perhaps slightly off topic but...

I'd like to report that I had a recent differential backup that was growing rather fast, and it turned out to be tracy files in the session directory of the site. I've since excluded the offending session directory from the backup (shouldn't have been there in the first place) but it might be worth noting that the total size of all the tracy sessions files had grown into the 10s of GB. I wonder if there is any practical way Tracy could be made to cull its old session files?

Best wishes,
Steve

      Field Descriptions Extended
      This module enables you to extend field descriptions by dividing short descriptions with a longer text that is revealed in a toggle.
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/field-descriptions-extended/
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/FieldDescriptionsExtended
      Extending your field descriptions using the standard field's description field.
      Once this module is installed, it will automatically search your description field for the presence of 5 dashes (-----).
      Any content above the 5 dashes will be visible and the content below the dashes will be hidden. A 'More...' link will appear at the end of the short description which when clicked will reveal the rest of the description.
      Using Simple Markdown Editor with the description field
      If you have Simple Markdown Editor (InputfieldSimpleMDE) installed, you can enable the field description to have that editor.
      *When using Simple MDE, you can use the button (Insert Horizontal Line) instead of typing 5 dashes. More about SimpleMDE.
      Extending your field descriptions using content from a ProcessWire Page for the field description.
      You may use the content from a ProcessWire page as a field description. This would allow you to easily insert images, links, and use hanna codes.
      To use page content for your field descriptions, please follow these instructions:
      Install Select Fields module (FieldtypeFields) http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-fields/ Create a new field using this field type, e.g. field_select. Add the field to any template you will be using for your field descriptions. Setup your help pages (for example under a settings branch) where you will store the field description content,using the template containing the Field Select. Add content to a page and select the field where that content should show. To show a short text before the link to the longer content, separate them with 5 dashes Be sure to update your settings on this page, first enable page content descriptions,then specify the name of the Select Fields field, template to search, and content field. If you create a field description using this method, please note that the description field must be blank for contexts where you want the page content to appear.
      You can freely use template context for field descriptions, but the Page Content method is not context sensitive and will display under all contexts where the description is blank.
      ----
      original post:
      This is a new module, hope to release soon, which allows extended field descriptions, in currently 2 ways.
      The main feature of the module is that you can have a short description and then a 'more...' link which drops down a longer block of text.
      This is achieved by separating the intro/visible text and the rest with 5 dashes.

      Example setup:

      the 2nd way is if you are using AdminThemeUiKit, you can show extended field instructions in a panel. The content of the panel is edited on a regular PW page. This use case would probably not be that common, but if you had a field that required some extended instructions for how to use, this could be useful; Also, since this allows you to target information and instructions down at the field level, it could reduce the amount of documentation needed on a global level, since it is a lot more context targeted.

      Breadcrumb Dropdowns
      Adds dropdown menus of page edit links to the breadcrumbs in Page Edit.

      Installation
      Install the Breadcrumb Dropdowns module. The module requires ProcessWire >= v3.0.83 and AdminThemeUikit.
      There is a checkbox option in the module config that determines if the breadcrumb dropdowns will include pages that the user does not have permission to edit.
      Features/details
      The module adds an additional breadcrumb item at the end for the currently edited page. That's because I think it's more intuitive for the dropdown under each breadcrumb item to show the item's sibling pages rather than the item's child pages. In the dropdown menus the current page and the current page's parents are highlighted in a crimson colour to make it easier to quickly locate them in case you want to edit the next or previous sibling page. If the option to include uneditable pages is selected then those pages are indicated by a reduced text opacity and the "not-allowed" cursor is shown on hover. There is a limit of 25 sibling pages per dropdown for performance reasons and to avoid the dropdown becoming unwieldy. Incompatibilities
      This module replaces the AdminThemeUikit::renderBreadcrumbs method so will potentially be incompatible with other modules that hook the same method.

      Hey guys, 
      Thought I would share a quick preview of Designme. A module we (Eduardo @elabx and I) are building for visually laying out your templates/edit screens. 🙂
      This is a really quick, zero polish screen grab. FYI. 
      Video #2 - UPDATE
      This new video shows the following features in Designme:
      Re-arranging fields via Drag & Drop Re-sizing fields via Dragging. Adjusting field settings - with live refresh. Working on "hidden" fields while Designme is active. Creating New fields. Deleting fields. Creating/Deleting Tabs. Dragging fields between tabs. Creating fieldsets. Tagging/Un-tagging fields. Fields without headers expand when hovered (like checkboxes). Live filtering of fields in the sidebar. Ability to adjust (all) Template settings without leaving Designme. Template File Tree Editing Template files source code with ACE Editor. Editing Multiple files with ACE Editor. (New Tabs) Saving files. Techie stuff Fields load their own js/css dependancies. *ready to use on creation (*most fields)  Everything happens via Ajax to ProcessPageEdit (via module + hooks). Designme has a JS api that you can use.  All actions trigger events.  We would love any detailed feedback on what you see so far. If you are interested in testing Designme. Let me know below. 🙂
