Create page name with multiple consecutive dashes

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a pagename (for internal use, not for presentation to the users) with multiple dashes in the middle. Here's an excerpt of my code:

$p = new Page();

$p->template = 'template-name';
$p->name = "$prod--$variation";

ProcessWire seems to apply $sanitizer->pageName($name, true) which converts multiple dashes to a single dash so the page name doesn't have "--" in it.

How can I force it to have multiple dashes?

Sorry if this is overly simplistic, but if that is truly all you seek to do, could you just

$url = str_replace("-", "--", $sanitizer->pageName($name, true));

That doesn't actually change the page name though - I already have what I want in $name, right?

Not sure, but maybe you are looking for 


allowDoubledReplacement (bool): Whether to allow two of the same replacement chars [-_] next to each other (default=false).

See options argument

https://processwire.com/api/ref/sanitizer/name/

That's getting there - if I were in control of $sanitizer then I'd be set. But I'm creating a page via API so my code looks like (and sorry, I should have included this):

$p = new Page();

$p->template = 'template-name';
$p->name = "$prod--$variation";

So I don't have control over calling $sanitizer - PW is doing that internally.

Okey, I see.

From sanitizer docs:

 * Modules may also add methods to the Sanitizer as needed i.e. $this->sanitizer->addHook('myMethod', $myClass, 'myMethod'); 

So you can add custom sanitizer method and then hook __construct method of InputfieldName and set your custom method for some pages

      Short description of the issue
      Since PW 3.0.88: When I try to retrive a croped file using the api filesManager() and it's basename, I get the original version instead of the croped variation.
      Expected behaviour
      Looking up a variation using the path and filesManager should return the variation file.
       $page->filesManager->getFile("/path/to/filebasename.400x400.jpg"); // $file->basename > filebasename.400x400.jpg Actual behavior
      The variation is returned.
       $page->filesManager->getFile("/path/to/filebasename.400x400.jpg"); // $file->basename > filebasename.jpg  
      » Is this a bug or do I miss something here?
       
      Code:
      dump($page->filesManager->path.$input->get->filename('f')); $file = $page->filesManager->getFile($page->filesManager->path.$input->get->filename('f')); dump($file); dump($page->filesManager->path.$file->basename); Output:

      Hi all,
      Im a bit confused by an issue I have come across today.
      I have a module which connects to a third party (once an hour using LazyCron), parses a publicly available XML file, turns it into useable information which I then use the API to save as PW Pages.
      On the whole this has been working great however today I noticed that it kept failing on one of the imports.
      After doing some investigation I realised its appears to be dying at the save page stage.
      From the documentation $page-save() should return either True/False, so I thought I would update the code to reflect this while debugging.
      $this->log(1); $bool = $p->save(); if($bool){ $this->log('Saved successfully'); } else { $this->log('Fail to save'); } $this->log(2); However the script only gets to the save() part and then appears to terminate. Then when checking the error log the latest entry is always just '1'
      Any ideas as i'm a tad confused why I at least don't get a response of some kind?

      Hello, 
      for an Project i need help for an Script. 
      There is an XML File with all the Objects Data and Images for every object. 

      This is the Data Structure 
      http://prntscr.com/hvfo31


      One XML file and Pictures. 
      So every Time the new Data is Uploadet via ImmoTool there have to be maybe an batch or something or an button in the Sitebackend to check the new files. 

      If the Status is  NEW then create an Object 
      if the Status is CHANGE  then make some changes 
      If the Status is Delete then remove the Object in other Parent 

      There are Basic infos in XML like Description Rooms etc. 
      Also the latitude and attitude for the maps. 
      After succsessful changes the Folder schould be empty for the next upload. 

      I need only help to create and handle the sites with some data (PW API ). The output I will generate by myself. 


      I have some basic php code 

      Need somebody to fix it ready for me in PW. 

      Tnx

      I recently started to build Vue SPAs with ProcessWire as the backend, connected with a REST API. Thanks to code and the help of @LostKobrakai (How to use FastRoute with ProcessWire) and @clsource (REST-Helper) I got it up and running pretty quickly and now have put all of it in a site profile for others to use. It includes the REST API with routing for different endpoints, JWT Auth and a simple Vue SPA which shows the process of logging in a user (nevertheless, you don't have to use the Vue part, the API will work on it's own).
      Check it out here: https://github.com/thomasaull/RestApiProfile
      I'm pretty sure, it's not the perfect or most sophisticsted solution, but it gets the job done for me…
      Feedback or Improvements are very welcome

      In the admin, I am trying to access data from a page that contains an inputfieldand autofill that data into the modal edit window for a new entry.
      For instance, I have a template which contains a PageTable field. When I add a new entry to the PageTable, I want to capture the ID from the originating admin page and add it to a field in the edit modal as a way of linking the new entry back to the originating page. The new PageTable entries are NOT children of the originating page, and cannot be for structural reasons. I have attached an image which I hope will help to clarify the basic result I want to achieve.
      Is there a practical means of accomplishing this? I've been able to achieve something similar with the ConnectPageFields module, but it does not work with PageTable fields. Any input would be much appreciated.
