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.

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

      Hi all,
      I'm a new to website building. Learned some CRASH course of js,jquery,php. Then I found CMS. Still learning around forum, youtube....
      Anyway, please help me with some beginer questions:
      1, About template - please correct me if I understand wrong : every page should be (or recommended) built on a template. So if in total I'll have 10 pages, 2 of them have same layout, I'll need 9 templates.  And, what fields a page includes, is not defined in page, but defined in the template that page uses. 
      2,  Where to see what modules I've installed? is it in "Modules - Site"? 
      3, I installed "PageTable Extended", then what?  As in a youtube tutorial, it should appear in Setup tab, but it doesn't.  What's in there: templates,fields,logs,comments. (I installed "Uikit 3 site_blog profile".)
      4, I did a search in Processwire website for the famous "repeater matrix" module, and can not find it, there's a Repeater, as well as a Matrix. Is it not a module?
      5, I watched this youtube tuts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHqnLQy9R1A
      Anybody familiar with this tuts please help: 
      After he analysed a target webpage layout he wanted to mimic, he created some fields, some template, then based on those he created a page and input some "content" in there, then clicked "view", it's just some text. So, here comes my question, he copied a folder "assets" (subfolders are: css,fonts,js,img) over, then the page have the appearance/layout he wanted to mimic. Where does that assets folder come from?
      Appreciate any help.

      I've created a set of modules for importing (manipulating and displaying) data from external resources. A key requirement was to handle large (100k+) number of pages easily.
      Main features
      import data from CSV and XML sources in the background (using Tasker) purge, update or overwrite existing pages using selectors user configurable input <-> field mappings on-the-fly data conversion and composition (e.g. joining CSV columns into a single field) download external resources (files, images) during import handle page references by any (even numeric) fields How it works
      You can upload CSV or XML files to DataSet pages and specify import rules in their description.
      The module imports the content of the file and creates/updates child pages automatically.
      How to use it
      Create a DataSet page that stores the source file. The file's description field specifies how the import should be done:
      After saving the DataSet page an import button should appear below the file description.

      When you start the import the DataSet module creates a task (executed by Tasker) that will import the data in the background.
      You can monitor its execution and check its logs for errors.

      See the module's wiki for more details.
      The module was already used in three projects to import and handle large XML and CSV datasets. It has some rough edges and I'm sure it needs improvement so comments are welcome.

      Pages At Bottom
      Keeps selected pages at the bottom of their siblings.
      A "bottom page" will stay at the bottom even if it is drag-sorted to a different location or another page is drag-sorted below it (after Page List is refreshed the bottom page will still be at the bottom).
      Newly added sibling pages will not appear below a bottom page.
      The module also prevents the API methods $pages->sort() and $pages->insertAfter() from affecting the position of bottom pages.
      Note: the module only works when the sort setting for children on the parent page/template is "Manual drag-n-drop".
      Why?
      Because you want some pages to always be at the bottom of their siblings for one reason or another. And someone requested it. 🙂
      Usage
      Install the Pages At Bottom module.
      Select one or more pages to keep at the bottom of their siblings. If you select more than one bottom page per parent then their sort order in the page list will be the same as the sort order in the module config.

      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. 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.
