Import different languages from DB

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

For my website I had to make a connection with an external DB. In that DB there are categories of products in different languages, and I want to import these categories in the languages that are available in processwire, I can do that with a very long code but I want to make it shorter. So I wrote a function to get the categories, but the different languages of the category names not, only if I insert the ISO-code hard-code. So here is my code:

protected function get_category()
	{   $languages = wire("languages");
		try {
			$prestashp = $this->get_dbPrestashop();
			foreach($languages as $language) 
					$iso_code= $language->name ;
						$categories = $prestashp->query(
							"SELECT l.id_lang, l.iso_code, cl.description, cl.name AS category_title, cl.id_shop, c.active, c.id_category, c.id_parent, c.position, cl.link_rewrite
							FROM ps_category c
							INNER JOIN ps_category_lang cl
							ON c.id_category=cl.id_category
							LEFT JOIN ps_lang l
							ON cl.id_lang=l.id_lang
							WHERE c.active='1'
							AND cl.id_shop='1'
							AND c.id_parent = '2'
							ORDER BY c.position
		}catch(Exception $e) {
			$this->message('Failed to show categories. Try again later.');

			return false;

		return $categories;


So in the DB there is Deutsch, Dutch, English(default), Spanish, Italian. And when I edit the template the different languages of the category names need to be imported in the right tab of the field.  52a3549a8adaed2d5f44cac6dfb6d9d3.png

Anyone have an idea how I can fix this?

I'm not really used to hooks, maybe there is another option?

I don't think @Zeka was saying you have to use hooks - I think he was showing you the code that soma used for saving a language specific value to a field.


"name$lname" where $lname is actually defined as the ID of the language.

Take another look at soma's code and I think you will find what you need.

      This is not directly about language module but I think I can get information from you.
      Can I add a vendor module to have all languages written automatically into name?
      I used this vendor module which is good with any language (hebrew, arabic...). How could I add it, so admin interface can use it ?
      Thank you

      All of a sudden, with nothing changed on the database or server, a website was getting error when doing a search:
      Error: Exception: SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 23 Out of resources when opening file './your-database-name/pages_parents.MYD' (Errcode: 24 - Too many open files) (in /home/forge/example.com/public/wire/core/PageFinder.php line 413) #0 /home/forge/example.com/public/wire/core/Wire.php(386): ProcessWire\PageFinder->___find(Object(ProcessWire\Selectors), Array) #1 /home/forge/example.com/public/wire/core/WireHooks.php(723): ProcessWire\Wire->_callMethod('___find', Array) #2 /home/forge/example.com/public/wire/core/Wire.php(442): ProcessWire\WireHooks->runHooks(Object(ProcessWire\PageFinder), 'find', Array) #3 /home/forge/example.com/public/wire/core/PagesLoader.php(248): ProcessWire\Wire->__call('find', Array) #4 /home/forge/example.com/public/wire/core/Pages.php(232): ProcessWire\PagesLoader->find('title~=EAP, lim...', Array) #5 /home/forge/example.com/public/wire/core/Wire.php(383): ProcessWire\Pages->___find('title~=EAP, lim...') #6 /home/forge/example.com/public/wire This error message was shown because: you are logged in as a Superuser.

      I tried several things, listed in this thread: https://serverfault.com/questions/791729/ubuntu-16-04-server-mysql-open-file-limit-wont-go-higher-than-65536
      But for some reason, MySQL was not getting its limit increased, but in the end, the one that did the trick was this:
      This worked for me on Ubuntu Xenial 16.04:
      Create the dir /etc/systemd/system/mysql.service.d
      Put in /etc/systemd/system/mysql.service.d/override.conf:
      [Service] LimitNOFILE=1024000 Now execute
      systemctl daemon-reload systemctl restart mysql.service Yes indeed, LimitNOFILE=infinity actually seems to set it to 65536.
      You can validate the above after starting MySQL by doing:
      cat /proc/$(pgrep mysql)/limits | grep files

      I've never encountered this issue before. My local installing is using AMPPS 3.7, setup about 3 months ago.
      Everything was working fine last night, and I think possibly this morning, before it complete stopped with these errors. Please see below.
      I have not changed any config setttings, access settings.
      The only 2 other things I did yesterday was log into phpmyadmin and export the DB, then I think an Xcode update was installed yesterday.
      Can anyone help?
      I know people have run into these issues when they migrate, but I haven't migrated, setup, changed anything.
      Some people have said to just disable to do something like:
      $cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = true; In phpMyAdmin's config.inc.php file. I tried but that didn't work.
      I even tried changing:
      $config->dbHost = 'localhost'; to, in site/config.php but no good.

      Okay folks, I am trying to put a character limit on a body of text. I am using the following function, which is place in the _func.php file:
      function wordLimiter($str, $limit = 120, $endstr = '…'){ $str = strip_tags($str); if(strlen($str) <= $limit) return $str; $out = substr($str, 0, $limit); $pos = strrpos($out, " "); if ($pos>0) { $out = substr($out, 0, $pos); } return $out .= $endstr; }  
      This works just fine on it's own. When placed in Hanna code I get a fatal error, "Call to undefined function wordLimiter()". Code in hanna
      <?php echo "<div class=\"grid_xs-1\">"; foreach ($pages->find("template=property") as $properties) { //attempt at defining $summ to call wordLimitor() $summ = wordLimiter($properties->body); echo " <div class=\"col-5 card property\"> <a href=\"{$properties->url}\"> <img src=\"{$properties->images->first->size(500,500)->url}\"> </a> </div> <div class=\"col-7\"> <h3>{$properties->title}</h3> <p>{$summ}</p> </div> <div class=\"col-12 grid details\"> <div class=\"col\"> <i class=\"fa fa-dollar\" aria-hidden=\"true\"></i> {$properties->price}</div> <div class=\"col\"> <i class=\"fa fa-bed\" aria-hidden=\"true\"></i> {$properties->bedroom}</div> <div class=\"col\"> <i class=\"fa fa-bath\" aria-hidden=\"true\"></i> {$properties->bathroom} </div> <div class=\"col\"> <i class=\"fa fa-arrows\" aria-hidden=\"true\"></i> {$properties->square_feet} SqFt</div> </div>"; } echo "</div>";
      I have also tried placing the function wordLimiter() at the top of the Hanna but it give a different error, " Cannot redeclare wordLimiter() "

      Am I missing something here? Limitation somewhere?

      I'm displaying a list of products which are found by their templates, but the pages are taking a very long time to load. At first, I blamed it on my image rendering (using PIM2), but even with all those images now stored in the file tree, the page is taking abysmally long to load. ProCache seems to help but I don't feel as though what I'm trying to do should be gnawing the bones of my resources quite so long.
      The variable for the selector is defined in my header include:
      $productCatList="prod_series|prod_series_ethernet|prod_series_access|prod_series_accessories|prod_series_fiber|prod_series_pwr_supplies|prod_series_pwr_systems|prod_series_wireless"; $getCurrentProdOptions="template=$productCatList, prod_status_pages!=1554|1559|1560|4242"; Then in the template for the page upon which the directory loads:
      $products = $pages->find("$getCurrentProdOptions"); include_once("./prod-list-row.inc"); echo $out; And the prod-list-row.inc foreach (which is on every page that's exhibiting the slowdown):
      <?php $sum = 0; $out =""; $out .= "<div class='span_12_of_12'>\n"; foreach($products as $p){ $sum += 1; if ($sum % 2 == 0) { $bgcolor = '#fff'; } else { $bgcolor = '#e4e4e4';} $par = $p->parent; $out .="<div class='section group' style='background: $bgcolor ; min-height: 110px'>\n"; $img = $p->prod_image; $thumb = $img->pim2Load('squarethumb100')->canvas(100,100,array(0,0,0,0),'north',0)->pimSave()->url; $out .="<div data-match-height='{$p->title}' class='col span_2_of_12 hide'>"; $out .="<a href='{$p->url}'><span class='product-image-box'><img src='{$thumb}' alt='{$p->title}' title='{$p->title}'></span></a>"; $out .= "</div>"; $out .= "<div data-match-height='{$p->title}' class='col span_6_of_12'>"; $out .= "<div class='prod-list-name-label'><a href='{$p->url}'>{$p->title}</a></div>"; if($page!=$par) { $out .= "<div class='prod-list-category-label' style='font-size: .7em;'>Category: <a href='{$par->url}'>{$par->title}</a></div>"; } $out .= "<div class='list-headline' style='font-size: .8em;'>{$p->headline}</div>"; $out .="<div class='learn-more-buttons-sm'>"; $out .="<a href='{$p->url}' title='Product Specs and Documentation'><span class='find-out-more-button' style='font-size: .8em;'><i style='font-size: .8em;' class='fa fa-lightbulb-o' ></i> &nbsp; Learn More</span></a>"; $out .="</div>"; $out .="</div> \n"; $out .= " <div data-match-height='{$p->title}' class='col span_4_of_12'>"; if(count($p->prod_feat_imgs) >0 ){ $out .= "<div class='featured-icons-list' margin: 2em .5em;'>"; foreach($p->prod_feat_imgs as $feat){ $icon = $pages->get("$feat->prod_featicon_pages"); if($icon->image) { if($feat->prod_feat_textlang) { $icontitle = $feat->prod_feat_textlang;} else {$icontitle = $icon->title;} $out .= "<img src='".$icon->image->size(35,35,$imgOptions)->url . "' alt='" . $icontitle . "' title='" . $icontitle . "' class='listing-feat-icon' style='margin-right: .5em;' />"; } } $out .= "</div>"; if($p->prod_product_line){ foreach($p->prod_product_line as $pline) if($pline->image) { $out .= "<div style='height: 35px;'>\n"; $out .= "<img src='{$pline->image->size(75,35,$imgOptions)->url}' alt='{$pline->title}' />"; $out .= "</div>"; } } } $out .= "</div>"; $out .="</div>"; } $out .= "</div>";  
      Is there a clear culprit here of what I'm doing that's so stressing the system?
      I turned off TracyDebugger because I saw another thread about that causing slowdown (even though I'm using the latest), but that had no effect. Every time I thought I found the culprit and commented it out, nothing changed.
      Would appreciate some more eyes on this. Thank you!
      ETA: prod_feat_imgs is a repeater field which contains a Page reference field (from which I pull the image and title) and a multilanguage textfield (to override the page reference title if it exists). Could that be the problem?
