sorry for my confusion, but didn't the P icon used to have a link to edit the page being viewed? I used to use this all the time to get from front end to backend edit page - was that link moved somewhere - the appearance of that P panel seems to have changed a lot.

Hi @Macrura - sorry for the confusion. I split the content of the PW Info panel into two panels - itself and the new Request Info panel. Discussion on this new panel starts here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/12208-tracy-debugger/?do=findComment&comment=153033

You'll see that it has the page edit and template edit (if your code editor is configured for links) buttons at the bottom. 

The PW Info panel is now more about info and links for PW and the Request Info panel is about the current page/request.

Be sure to check out the new options for both these panels in the module config settings as well - lots of great new tools.

Let me know if you have any more questions about this.

Small new feature that some of you may find useful. It is disabled by default so you will need to turn it on in the ProcessWire Info panel config settings section.

Goto Page By ID which is available in the PW Info panel:

It allows you to enter a page ID and click "View" or "Edit to be taken to the appropriate place. 

This was requested by a friend who is getting into PW development and I can see it being quite useful on sites where you reference key pages by ID in your template files and want quick access to view/edit them without browsing or typing a full URL, especially when you can't actually remember what pages they actually are :)

I have rebuilt the Dumps Recorder panel as well. You probably won't want this most of the time, so it is no longer enabled by default on new Tracy installs, so if you are upgrading, I recommend disabling the Dumps Recorder panel by default and just enabling via the Panel Selector as needed. It no longer has a "Preserve Dumps" option, because that is now it's only purpose, so when it is enabled, it will preserve all dumps across all page / ajax requests and reloads. You can click "Clear Dumps" whenever you want, and of course disabling it will also clear the recorded dumps.

hi adrian,

I hope i'm using tracy wrong in this case because the missing option is quite annoying for me. I'm debugging a lot via bd('mytest') calls in my project and when i reload i want to see all dumps based on that single reload most of the time. with the missing option i always have to clean the dump and then reload. if i dont clean the dump it gets messy and misleading sometimes (showing variable values from a previous pageload).

thanks for your help :)

Hi @erikvanberkum - sorry for the trouble upgrading. I am wondering if you'd mind helping me debug this please?

Firstly, what version of PW and PHP are you running?

Could you please go into wire/core/PagesLoader.php and echo $languageID before line 813. It should return 0 and the if($languageID) condition on 813 should fail, but for some reason $languages->setLanguage($language); is being called with $language set to NULL, hence the error you are seeing.

It's almost like your version of PHP is treating if($languageID) as true, when it should be false if set to 0

If you can report on these things, hopefully we can figure out what is going wrong.

Hey @bernhard - as I mentioned, I now leave the Dumps Recorder disabled by default and only enable it via the Panel Selector if I need it which is usually only if there are some weird redirects going on that Tracy is missing. The main Dumps panel is now my own version (not the Tracy core) so I can control how it looks and behaves, and also the way it stores consecutive ajax requests.

Does that make sense and work for you? I can bring back the "Preserve Dumps" option if it's really needed, but really the new "Preserve Dumps" approach is to enable the Dumps Recorder when needed and when not, just don't load it.

thanks adrian!

i didn't know that a dumps panel appears automatically when i do a " bd('test') " anywhere in my code. so i thought i have to activate the dumps recorder :)

great new feature :) (y)

Some nice updates this morning for the Console and the Snippets Runner panels.

1) The code injection feature (the one that lets you run hooks etc at init, ready, and finished) now has better error handling. It will no longer inject code if it detects any type of error (previously it wasn't properly detecting 500 errors).

2) The Console panel now makes use of orange and red icon colors. The orange simply indicates that you are currently injecting code, and the red indicates that there is an error in your code and as such, nothing is being injected.

3) The Console panel now restores the last error to the results section on page load so if you missed the error when you clicked "Run" to register the code, you will see it again as a reminder of what needs fixing.

4) 500 errors in the Console and Snippet Runner panels now show the full error message - previously this had to be tracked down in the browser dev console's Network tab.

Hopefully these changes will be nice improvements to debugging code in the Console and Snippet Runner panels.

Let me know if you notice any problems.

Cheers!

PS I have been using the Console code injection feature for all my hook testing lately and really enjoying it.

echo $languageID before line 813

returns a 0

i have a total of 4 languages installed on this instance. 

Any ideas for further investigation?

Thanks @erikvanberkum - well it is returning 0 as expected, but the first line in your error shows that setLanguage is still being called.

Could you please temporarily replace:

if($languageID) $languages->setLanguage($language);

with:

if($languageID) {
    echo 'test' . $language->name;
    //$languages->setLanguage($language);
}

and let me know what you get.

Might sound a little insignificant to mention, but I have found myself using the GOTO Page ID feature a lot :) but it was annoying me that there was no way to open the View/Edit links in a new tabs. Well, now you can - just use your standard "new tab" shortcut: middle-click, right-click > new tab, CTRL+left-click, 3-finger click, etc - really handy!

Replacing this code makes it work again. Now I am able to enable and disable Tracey.

if($languageID) {
    echo 'test' . $language->name;
    //$languages->setLanguage($language);
}

I cant find the output from the echo test, language name. The default language in my installation is English.

I only have the error when i enable or disable the Tracey. When its enabled and I remove the above code it keep working properly.

I just tested on 3.0.60 (I didn't have easy access to 3.0.62 using the PW Version switcher :)) and I can actually reproduce the issue you are having.

Turns out it's a bug in the PW core in that version. Look at the difference between:

3.0.60

if($languages) $languages->setLanguage($language);

3.0.84

if($languageID) $languages->setLanguage($language);

I would recommend upgrading to 3.0.84 to fix the problem!

PS - in my experience, 3.0.84 is more stable than the current "stable" version.

I haven't try this feature so far but the first idea that came to me was to have some kind of info about the page even without clicking on the buttons. How about an ajax loaded line showing the page title as you type, in the bottom of the panel? I think that would make the panel more versatile but of course it's only a nice-to-have kind of request :)

Hi @tpr - thanks for your idea. I almost did that when building this feature the first time, but struggled to come up with the right UX. Been going around in circles for way too long on this and I am still not sure how it should look. 

I am attaching a version of Tracy that includes the admin ajax search feature embedded into the PW Info panel. It's rough in look, but it works and returns exactly the same results as the admin version. Please note that it actually only works in the backend of your site at the moment - some missing dependencies.

I know this is not really what you asked for, but I am wondering what the best combo would actually be. Would you guys make use of an ajax search? Would it make sense to combine the ID and page search into one feature? Do we want edit and view links for results searched by name, rather than ID. 

Anyway, I am happy to implement something here - just looking for feedback on what you guys would find useful.

The attached version of TD doesn't offer anything extra compared to the built-in admin search so I don't regard it too useful - of course on the frontend side it could be handy. In this case it would be great having a non-panel version of it, only a small input line in the TD bar, with results appearing above it, growing upwards. Probably this is harder to implement, just an idea.

See the attached image how I imagined the ajax-loaded page title (plus the template name used). It should be one line only, cropped if too long, with a small font size. Also its placeholder space should be there all the time to avoid jumping when typing.

Thanks, I like it. Perhaps the template link attracts the attention too much, I would go with something like this - but of course I can live with the current one too :)

Hi, my Tracy Debug bar has gone missing. It was in the lower right hand corner of the screen, but now there is just an icon that doesn't do anything in the lower LEFT hand corner of the screen. Before this I exported my site profile and am working on a new site, though I'm not sure what that would have to do with it. I have looked at all the options on the module settings page and no matter what I choose, nothing happens. I have now just upgraded to version 4.8.23. I'm testing locally on MAMP.

Attached are some screenshots of the icon and the errors I get in Chrome. Any ideas? Thanks!

  • Do you have PW's debug mode on?
  • Any php errors being displayed or logged?
  • Any errors on the dev console's Network tab regarding Tracy files not being loaded?
  • Any issues with file permissions on the files within the Tracy folder after moving to new site?
  • Any files missing from the Tracy folder? Can you replace with a fresh set from Github?

      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. 🙂
