Recurme – Processwire Recurring Dates Field & Custom Calendar Module.


Recommended Posts

Introducing our newest [commercial] module:

Processwire Recurring Dates Field & Custom Calendar Module.


One Field to Recur them ALL…
A Recurring Dates InputField for your Processwire templates. The InputField you’ve been waiting for.
Complex RRule date repeating in a simple and fast user interface.

Use the super simple, & powerful API to output them into your templates.


	// easy to get recurring events
	$events = $recurme->find();
	// events for this day
	$events = $recurme->day();
	// events for this week
	$events = $recurme->week();
	// events for this month
	$events = $recurme->month();
	// Loop through your events
	foreach($events as $event){
		echo $event->title;
		echo $event->start_date;
		echo $event->rrule;
		echo $event->original->url;

Unlimited Custom Calendars.
Imagine you could create any calendar you wanted on your website. Use recurring events with the Recurme field, or use your own Processwire pages and date fields to render calendars… it’s up to you. Fully customizable. Make as many calendars as you like. Get events from anywhere. Recurme does all the hard date work for you.

Unlimited Custom Admin Calendars too.

Hope you like it :) ,

 Joshua & Eduardo from 99Lime.

Wow, this looks amazing! I've been wishing someone would make a full-featured PW calendar module for a while now and this looks like it fits the bill. So thanks! :)

A question: it looks like it's possible to disable an occurrence of an event, but is it possible to create a one-off variation of an occurrence? For example, if there is a weekly yoga class on a Tuesday but on one particular week it has to move to Wednesday, can I locate that occurrence and edit it individually? Similar to this, from Lightning calendar...



P.S. the links on the 99lime.com home page to "Responsive Menu" and "ProcessWire Go" are non-functional.

Hi Robin,

Thanks for your kind words. 

To answer your question, no there is no "edit this occurance" button... although we have gone back and forth on that one for a while. However, you can still get the desired effect by duplicating your event for just that special instance and removing the occurance from the original. You basically are just doing the job of the "edit this occurance" button manually. 

The next release of Recurme will include selecting multiple additional dates to add to a recurrence. That will also solve your needs nicely. :)

Hope that makes sense. 

Happy coding.

great job!

i already did a calendar using https://fullcalendar.io/ but without recurring events (thats a lot more difficult do implement and i see you also had to set a hard max of 2800 so far...). i guess you can count me to your customers before end of may ;)

1) is the calendar custom css? can it easily be adopted to other styles/themes?

2) is there drag&drop support for events? i build this on fullcalendar+pw. but it's not a must have...

Hi bernhard, 

Super easy to style via CSS or override any CSS you want. All interactions are CSS animations or transitions as well. Or use custom HTML. Also, no need to use the built in calendar. You could easily use recurring events with fullcalendar using the event API. No drag and drop support on the recurme calendar. The calendar is more for displaying your events than managing them... although it has modal window event editing. 

We have a solution in the works for beating the 2800 limit we set. Hope to get that out in the next couple updates. 

Happy coding!

Looks really amazing.

One question: Is there the possibility to limit an event to a certain endtime or to a certain date? Fe event starts at 6am and ends at 9am or an event goes over midnight (multiple days event)

From the images above it seems that it will always be a whole day event.

Best regards and respect for this work.

@Juergen Currently, you can set the event start date and hour, but there is no end time field for a specific event. You can add an end_time field to your event (or whatever it's called) template if you wanted to output that it starts at 6pm and ends at 9pm, for example. 

 There are no facilities for spanning multiple days with a single event. In most cases such as a 3 day event, we just repeat the event for those 3 days in a row so that it displays on the calendar for the 3 consecutive days. Then In our event template we create a description field to describe the exact details of the event.

You can add any fields you want to your template. 

With a little custom CSS for your event, you could make it very clear that it's a unified event that spans more than one day  

I am very interested in coming up with a way to include spanning multiple days with the recurme interface in an easy to use format, but for now, repeating the event has covered our use cases pretty well. Maybe that would work for you.

Only just a thought:

It would make more sense to offer only the possibillity to enter just a start date without a time. If there is a start time, there should also be an endtime. So if you remove the time setting from the inputfield for the date it means there is an event on that date which is all day long.

If there is a need to restrict an event via a start and end time we can add 2 PW time fields to the template. This is the case if there is fe a course the starts and ends at a certain time. This looks better than using the time field from the module field for the starting time and another time field from another PW field type for the endtime (2 different fieldtypes with different looks).

Another case would be that a store is fe closed on that day (inventory or something else). The shop is closed the whole day. So there is no need to enter a start time - it is an all day event. We dont need a start time in this case.

Conclusion: I think a date only field without the possibility to add the time would be a better fitting solution in this case. If you want you can add 2 time fields to the template or not (depending on your needs). No mixin of 2 different fields necessary.

Best regards

Is modifying the recurring tabular list below the RRule definition currently the only way to exclude dates in the exclusion? We pay for a (rather poorly implemented) calendar that has a GUI mini-calendar selection to create a list of dates to exclude. Love this calendar, but I'd be fearful of removing/changing something that our staff (not highly computer literate) is used to - so just curious.

Thanks for providing this! RRule is a confusing thing to implement in a database!

Yes, currently it is the only way. I dislike how it is currently refreshing the whole recurme field when a date is excluded. Something that I have on my list to improve. Even so, we have had really good success with our users (clients) excluding dates this way.

Have you tried the live example of the Recurme field on the website? 

Now, you have given me a new idea for handling exclusions that I think could be more elegant. Thanks!

Hi @joshuag, I'm noticing strange behaviour when I create a recurring event.

For some reason the initial event occurs on the start date, but then another event is added the following day and all the recurrences are based on that second event. See the screenshots below where the intial event is set for a Tuesday and to recur every 7 days but the events recur on a Wednesday.

Here is a little Hook that I use to add the last date of recurring events to the end of publication field.

Please copy this piece of code into your ready.php file.

//dates = name of your recurring field - please change it to your field name
//publish_until = name of your end of publication field - please change it to your field name

// hook to add the publish_until date according to the last event date
$pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function($event)
    $page = $event->arguments[0];
    if ($page->hasField('dates')) {
      $dates = $page->getDates(); 
      foreach($dates as $key=>$date){
         if ($key === key($dates))
        $enddateunformatted = $date;
      $page->publish_until = $enddateunformatted;
      $enddateformatted = date('d-m-Y', $date);
      $this->message($this->_("The end date of the publication was set to {$enddateformatted}."));

In my case I use the the SchedulePagesModule to unpublish pages after a certain date. In this case the date field for unpublishing pages is called "publish_until". My recurme field in this case is called "dates". You have to add both fields to your template.

Now I want to copy the last date of the recurring events to the "publish_until" field, so that the article will be unpublished after the last recurrence.

For this purpose you have to add the code above to your ready.php file. If you have named the fields differently than "publish_until" and "dates" you have to replace this by your names.

In a first step I check if the template has the recurme field "dates". If yes then I check if there are events generated. The last step is to grab the last occurence and add this date to the end of the publication field ("publish_until") - finished!

After pressing the save button the last ocurrence date will be saved in the publish_until field and the article will be unpublished after this date.

Best regards

setting your $config->timezone should resolve this problem as mentioned

Yes, I have my timezone set correctly in config.

Not sure what caused that issue but after removing the Recurme field from the template, adding it back again and setting up the event again it is working normally now. So case closed for now, thanks. :)

I agree with @Juergen on the start/end time input workflow with separate time input fields.

Would like to use this module for a room occupancy calendar. @joshuag Is it possible with your module to have multiple events for one day with start and end times that recur daily/weekly/monthly? E.g.
17.00 - 19.00 every Monday
19.00 - 21.00 twice a month on Mondays

hello @gebeer

it is possible to add as much dates as you want to one day (fe. 100 or more if you want). You only have to create one event (page) for each of your events and make them recurring to your needs. So from the module there are no restrictions. It also doesnt matter if the starting and ending time of several events are the same on the same day. On the calendar view only few events are displayed for this day (depending on the space in the calendar row - see next image on the 6th). All others will be overflown.


After hovering the calendar cell all events on that day will be displayed.


If you are entering fe 100 events on that day (and I am sure you would probably not ;)) the list will be very long, but technically it would be possible.

There are a lot of recurrence possiblilities fe. the first and the last day of a month every second monday every month,.... take look at the documentation.

Hi @gebeer

like @Juergen said, you should have no problem doing what you need with Recurme. Perfect use case for this module :)

i am experimenting with an adjustment to the Recurme interface to account for all day events and time-end field. Hoping to release an update that addresses that need this week.

@totoff Great question. You could actually use Recurme with full calendar if you like. 

Example event object from full calendar: https://fullcalendar.io

    events: [
            title  : 'event1',
            start  : '2010-01-01'
            title  : 'event2',
            start  : '2010-01-05',
            end    : '2010-01-07'
            title  : 'event3',
            start  : '2010-01-09T12:30:00',
            allDay : false // will make the time show

This would be easy to output with recurme using the API:

$FCEvents = array();
$events = $recurme->day();
foreach($events as $event){
	$FCEvents[] = array(
		'title' =>  $event->title,
		'start' => 	$event->start_date,

Print your array as javascript. And use the built in views in full calendar.

Works also with UiKit calendar and Bootstrap calendar if you are using a framwork. If you are using UiKit calendar you can make fe a template which outputs all the calendar dates in a json array. Then you can load this template (or lets say the event dates) via ajax into the UiKit calendar template engine. Its very easy.

      Symprowire is a PHP MVC Framework based and built on Symfony using ProcessWire 3.x as DBAL and Service-Provider
      It acts as a Drop-In Replacement Module to handle the Request/Response outside the ProcessWire Admin. Even tough Symfony or any other mature MVC Framework could be intimidating at first, Symprowire tries to abstract Configuration and Symfony Internals away as much as possible to give you a quick start and lift the heavy work for you.
      The main Goal is to give an easy path to follow an MVC Approach during development with ProcessWire and open up the available eco-system.
      You can find the GitHub Repo and more Information here: https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire
      The Symprowire Wiki https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire/wiki How to create a simple Blog with Symprowire https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire/wiki/Symprowire-Blog-Tutorial Last Update
      16.07.2021 // RC 1 v0.6.0 centralized ProcessWire access trough out the Application by wrapping to a Service https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire/releases/tag/v0.6.0-rc-1 Requirements
      PHP ^7.4 Fresh ProcessWire ^3.0.181 with a Blank Profile Composer 2 (v1 should work, not recommended) The usual Symfony Requirements Features
      Twig Dependency Injection Monolog for Symprowire Support for .env YAML Configuration Symfony Console and Console Commands Symfony Webprofiler Full ProcessWire access inside your Controller and Services Webpack Encore support Caveats
      Symfony is no small Framework and will come with a price in terms of Memory Usage and added Overhead. To give you a taste I installed Tracy Debugger alongside to compare ProcessWire profiling with the included Symfony Webprofiler

      So in a fresh install Symprowire would atleast add another 2MB of Memory usage and around 40ms in response time, should be less in production due to the added overhead of the Webprofiler in dev env

      Hello community!

      I want to share a new module I've been working on that I think could be a big boost for multi-language ProcessWire sites.

      Some background, I was looking for a way for our company website to be efficiently translated as working with human translators was pretty laborious and a lack of updating content created a divergence between languages. I, and several other devs here, have talked about translation integrations and have recognized the power that DeepL has. DeepL is an AI deep learning powered service that delivers translation quality beyond any automated service available. After access to the API was opened up to the US, I built Fluency, a DeepL translation integration for ProcessWire.
      Fluency brings automated translation to every multi-language field in the admin, and also provides a translation tool allowing the user to translate their text to any language without it being inside a template's field. With Fluency you can:
      Translate any plain textarea or text input Translate any CKEditor content (yes, with markup) Translate page names for fully localized URLs on every page Translate your in-template translation function wrapped strings Translate modules Fluency is free, and now so is DeepL
      Since this module was first built DeepL has introduced free Developer accounts that allow anyone to start using Fluency at zero cost and beginning with the version 0.3.0 release Fluency now supports free DeepL accounts. As of June 2021 DeepL supports translation to 26 languages and continues to offer more!
      Installation and usage is completely plug and play. Whether you're building a new multi-language site, need to update a site to multi-language, or simply want to stop manually translating a site and make any language a one-click deal, it could not be easier to do it. Fluency works by having you match the languages configured in ProcessWIre to DeepL's. You can have your site translating to any or all of the languages DeepL translates to in minutes (quite literally).
      Let's break out the screenshots...
      When the default language tab is shown, a message is displayed to let users know that translation is available. Clicking on each tab shows a link that says "Translate from English". Clicking it shows an animated overlay with the word "Translating..." cycling through each language and a light gradient shift. Have a CKEditor field? All good. Fluency will translated it and use DeepL's ability to translate text within HTML tags. CKEditor fields can be translated as easily and accurately as text/textarea fields.

      Repeaters and AJAX created fields also have translation enabled thanks to a JavaScript MutationObserver that searches for multi-language fields and adds translation as they're inserted into the DOM. If there's a multi-language field on the page, it will have translation added.

      Same goes for image description fields. Multi-language SEO friendly images are good to go.

      Creating a new page from one of your templates? Translate your title, and also translate your page name for native language URLs. (Not available for Russian, Chinese, or Japanese languages due to URL limitations). These can be changed in the "Settings" tab for any page as well so whether you're translating new pages or existing pages, you control the URLs everywhere.

      Language configuration pages are no different. Translate the names of your languages and search for both Site Translation Files (including all of your modules)

      Translate all of the static text in your templates as well. Notice that the placeholders are retained. DeepL is pretty good at recognizing and keeping non-translatable strings like that. If it is changed, it's easy to fix manually.

      Fluency adds a "Translate" item to the CMS header. When clicked this opens up a modal with a full translation tool that lets the user translate any language to any language. No need to leave the admin if you need to translate content from a secondary language back to the default ProcessWire language. There is also a button to get the current API usage statistics. DeepL account owners can set billing limitations via character count to control costs. This may help larger sites or sites being retrofitted keep an eye on their usage. Fluency can be used by users having roles given the fluency-translate permission.

      It couldn't be easier to add Fluency to your new or existing website. Simply add your API key and you're shown what languages are currently available for translation from/to as provided by DeepL. This list and all configuration options are taken live from the API so when DeepL releases new languages you can add them to your site without any work. No module updates, just an easy configuration. Just match the language you configured in ProcessWire to the DeepL language you want it to be associated with and you're done. Fluency also allows you to create a list of words/phrases that will not be translated which can prevent items such as brands and company names from being translated when they shouldn't

      No "translate page" - Translating multiple fields can be done by clicking multiple translation links on multiple fields at once but engineering a "one click page translate" is not feasible from a user experience standpoint. The time it takes to translate one field can be a second or two, but cumulatively that may take much longer (CKEditor fields are slower than plain text fields). There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't currently on the roadmap. No "translate site" - Same thing goes for translating an entire website at once. It would be great, but it would be a very intense process and take a very (very) long time. There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't on the roadmap. No current support for Inline CKEditor fields - Handling for CKEditor on-demand hasn't been implemented yet, this is planned for a future release though and can be done. I just forgot about it because I've never really used that feature personally.. Alpha release - This module is in alpha. Releases should be stable and usable, but there may be edge case issues. Test the module thoroughly and please report any bugs via a Github issue on the repository or respond here. Please note that the browser plugin for Grammarly conflicts with Fluency (as it does with many web applications). To address this issue it is recommended that you disable Grammarly when using Fluency, or open the admin to edit pages in a private window where Grammarly may not be loaded. This is an issue that may not have a resolution as creating a workaround may not be possible. If you have insight as to how this may be solved please visit the Github page and file a bugfix ticket.
      ProcessWire  3.0+ UIKit Admin Theme That's Fluency in a nutshell. A core effort in this module is to create it so that there is nothing DeepL related hard-coded in that would require updating it when DeepL offers new languages. I would like this to be a future-friendly module that doesn't require developer work to keep it up-to-date.
      The Module Is Free
      This is my first real module and I want to give it back to the community as thanks. This is the best CMS I've worked with (thank you Ryan & contributors) and a great community (thank you dear reader).
      DeepL Developer Accounts
      In addition to paid Pro Developer accounts, DeepL now offers no-cost free accounts. Now all ProcessWire developers and users can use Fluency at no cost.
      Learn more about free and paid accounts by visiting the DeepL website. Sign up for a Developer account, get an API key, and start using Fluency today.

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no Javascript or image required.
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode.

      Detailed records
      View mode "Detailed records" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records.

      Cached visitor records
      View modes other than "Detailed records" are cached visitor counts which will be collected on a daily basis from the detailed records. This procedure ensures a faster display even with a large number of data records. Another advantage is that the detailed records can be deleted while the cache remains. The cache can be updated manually or automatically in a specified time period. Multiple visits from the same IP address on the same day are counted as a single visitor.

      Upgrade from older versions
      Cached visitor counts is new in version 1.0.8. If you just upgraded from an older version you might expire a delay or even an error 500 if you display cached visitor counts. The reason for this is that the cache has to be created from the records. This can take longer if your database contains many records. Sometimes it might hit the maximally execution time. Don't worry about that and keep reloading the page until the cache is completely created.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).

      New in version 1.1.0
      A new feature comes with version 1.1.0 which offers to record user names of loggedin visitors. Just activate "Record user names" and "Record loggedin user" in the module settings.
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.

      Inertia Adapter ProcessWire Module
      Hello! Long time no see.
      I created this module so you can use Inertia.js (https://inertiajs.com/) with ProcessWire.
      Inertia allows you to create fully client-side rendered, single-page apps, without much of the complexity that comes with modern SPAs. It does this by leveraging existing server-side frameworks.
      Inertia isn’t a framework, nor is it a replacement to your existing server-side or client-side frameworks. Rather, it’s designed to work with them. Think of Inertia as glue that connects the two. Inertia comes with three official client-side adapters (React, Vue, and Svelte).
      This is an adapter for ProcessWire. Inertia replaces PHP views altogether by returning JavaScript components from controller actions. Those components can be built with your frontend framework of choice.
