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.

@Juergen Sorry if I miss something, but where do you find a calendar component at Uikit (https://getuikit.com/docs/introduction)?

Sorry, @totoff,

my fault. It mean the Fullcalendar. I use it with Uikit markup (badges,..) so I always call it "UiKit calendar". This was a mistake. Anyway, you can use it with recurme. Here you can find the Bootstrap calendar. Both are available on Jsdelivr CDN. So no need to include the files locally.

Best regards

I'm having an issue when trying to uninstall the Recurme module (v1.0.1) - after checking "Uninstall" and submitting I get a fatal error from PHP timeout (60 seconds).

The issue occurs when trying to uninstall from any of the Recurme sub-modules.

@Robin S Ok, I will do some test and see if I can reproduce this error and fix it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Sorry @totoff, but I have no example here at the moment, but Fullcalendar provides some render functions. I have used them to manipulate the output via Jquery. Fe adding Uikit classes to the buttons (uk-button) and so on. This was the way I have done some manipulations to the calendar. Take a look at this functions and use standard Jquery code to add classes, markup and so on. The calendar itself doesnt need to be manipulated, but as I have written above I have used UiKit markup at the buttons and I have used Uikit badges for the events in the calendar and Uikit tooltips after hovering a link . That was it.

Is it not possible to use recurme within an Repeater? In Repeater Matrix it works, so it is not a big problem, but for my purpose a repeater would suffice...

 

BTW great module and support, Joshua!

I have been working on regular repeater support, but it's not quite there. The current problem is that the event object is taking its data from the parent page, in the case of a repeater, it's the repeater page (not what we want). So I have to do a bit more work detecting if it's in a repeater and use getForPage() to populate the event object. A couple other little details. Getting close, but still not there. 

It's coming though!

I am having a complete failure to comprehend the way this field is structured, so while I can use the provided examples to render a list or calendar, from the individual pages I can't manage to access the individual date(s) in the field.

I sent this question to the help email address on Tuesday but haven't received an answer and I'd like to wrap up what seems like it should be a simple thing.

While working on the template for an event page, how do I specify the RecurMe dates from within that template using $page->xxx?

For instance I would normally echo a dateTime field like:

$datefield = $page->datefield;
$pubdate = strftime('j M Y', $datefield);
echo $pubdate; // outputs nothing

But since my recurme field, $page->eventsort, is an array(?), I figured I’d have to crack open the array first like so:

 

$eventsort = $page->eventsort;
foreach ($eventsort as $event) { //it loops through one $event because there is only a non-repeating day listed.
   $pubdate = $event->startDate;
   echo strftime('j M Y', $pubdate); // outputs nothing
}

I used startDate because when I once got the array to output, that was what was listed there. But this returns null. Same with start_date/date/any $event page fields listed in the faqs

I also tried :

$event = $page;
$newsdate = $recurme->event($event); //not sure this is any different than attempting to call $page->xxx?
$nd = $newsdate->start_date;
echo strftime('j M Y', $nd); // outputs "j M Y" on the page.

I've looked in the module files, and in the ready.php hook on page 1 of this thread to see how to take apart the field data, but nothing I've tried has worked.

So rather than continue chasing my tail, I thought I might as you for help with this as well. Thanks!

Hi creativeJay,

Sorry about the slow response. I was away from email yesterday. 

You are correct, It was returning NOTHING if you didn't toggle active. I have fixed it in the attached file. 

Thank you for bringing this to my attention!

Please download the fixed file here:
MarkupRecurme.module

Another reason we need to expand the ProcessWire store @ryan . All these modules spread across different sites - this one is even priced the same way as the official modules.

Is it possible to run a 'sort' selector on $recurme->find()?

When I attempt to sort by a particular field, only a single result is output. I can reverse the sort and it will output the opposite result so the sort works, but I get only one result.

The find method needs to have a startDate and endDate to find results, then a selector. The results will always be sorted by date. Any other sort option will be ignored. If you use ->find() with out those dates, it will only return the recurme events for today  

$recurme->find($dateFrom, $dateTo, $selector)

$recurme->find($dateFrom, $dateTo, $selector)

Thanks, makes complete sense. The issue I had was with a particular date outputting as AM when it was actually saved as PM so appearing before all other results.

The module is fantastic, but I'm having a consistent issue where if I enter and save a recurme field in a page it displays fine, but when I go back to edit another field on the page and save, it will begin outputting the time as AM when it was selected as PM. Going back in and altering the date fixes this until I alter another field again.

@joshuag, you say in the email: 

Quote

I have not updated the version number or released the changelog as this is in response to a couple messages on the processwire forum

I think it would be good if you do bump the version number each time you make a release even if it is for bug fixes. Otherwise it isn't clear from the PW modules listing whether that installation has been updated to the latest version, so it's harder to keep track if you have multiple sites running Recurme.

Also, it will be easier for you in terms of support if you can ask what the installed version number is and know from that what release of Recurme the user has installed.

Hi @joshuag, unfortunately this update does not resolve the problem I am having with uninstallation. When I do the following steps... 

  1. Remove the existing module files
  2. Add the updated module files
  3. Do a modules "Refresh"
  4. Clear compiled files

...I still get the PHP timeout when I try and uninstall, regardless of which sub-module I try and uninstall from. Sometimes timeouts like this are caused by a circular reference in the code. I'm wondering about the fact that each sub-module installs and uninstalls all the others. That seems non-standard to me: normally where there are multiple sub-modules there is one "main" module file that installs/uninstalls the others. The other modules only require the main module but do not install/uninstall them. See FieldtypeRepeater for example. Could there be some circularity where FieldtypeRecurme tries to uninstall ProcessRecurme, which tries to uninstall FieldtypeRecurme, which tries to... and so on?

Hi guys, 

I am trying to solve this problem. I cannot reproduce the error. Making it a bit hard to debug.  I tried removing the circular reference to what modules each file installs. Made no difference to me. 

@Robin S any other ideas?

Love the promise of this module. Should save me a bunch of time on this project.

Working on the detail page now and having a problem getting the date/time of the event to show on the page. If my page array contains this:

[calev_datetime] => {"startDate":1504821600,"endDate":false,"dates":["W36/07/Thu/Sep/2017",...,"W19/07/Wed/May/2025"],"excluded":[],"active":false,"showResults":false,"rrule":"WKST=MO;FREQ=DAILY;DTSTART=20170907T150000Z;INTERVAL=1"}

How can I get the date to output to the page like: 09/07/2017 3:00 pm? I've tried various bits and pieces to get at the startDate or the DTSTART, but always end up with a nothing on screen (in that area).

      LogMaintenance
      A simple ProcessWire module to give some maintenance control over log files. I found myself often having lots of log files for different things that can grow more or less quickly to a size where they can be difficult to maintain. The built in Logger of PW does a good job of giving you the possibility to delete or prune logs. But it has to be done manually and sometimes a log grows into millions of lines, which makes it often impossible to even prune it as it's too large.
      LogMaintenance uses LazyCron to run the maintenance task and there's several settings you can setup on a global or per log basis.
      Archive: will create zip files for each log file in logs/archive/ folder and add the log each time the maintenance is run to a subfolder containing the datetime.
      Lines: keeps logs to a certain number of lines 
      Days: keeps the log to a certain number of days
      Bytes: keeps the log to a certain amount of bytes
      Each setting is checked from top down, the first setting to contain something is used. So if you check the "Archive" option, all other settings are ignored and logs are archived everytime the LazyCron is executed. If you want to keep your logs to a certain amount of bytes just leave all other settings to 0 or blank.
      Per Log Settings
      There's a textarea that you can use to setup a config for a specific log file one per line. All the logs you define here ignore the global settings above. The syntax for the settings is:
      logname:[archive]:[lines]:[days]:[bytes] 
      errors:1:0:0:0 // would archive the errors log messages:0:10000:0:0 // will prune the errors log to 10000 lines  
      The module can be found on github for you to check out. It's still fresh and I'm currently testing.

      Fieldtype Page IDs is a third party Fieldtype that, simply put, stores Page references as integers (Page IDs).
      This fieldtype was built as a quick and dirty workaround for Page Reference fields' inability handle self-references due to circular reference issues. A project I've been working on for a while now includes a combination of RepeaterMatrix content blocks and tagging/categorization system that would've resulted in a lot of duplicate pages (and plenty of unnecessary manual work for content editors) had I used built-in Page Reference fields, and thus a new Fieldtype felt like the most sensible approach.
      Fieldtype Page IDs was designed to be loosely compatible with Page References in order to make conversions between the two feasible, but it is quite limited feature wise:
      largely due to the fact that stored values are actually just integers with no connection to Pages whatsoever some advanced selectors and related features are not supported, and page values can't be directly accessed configuration settings are limited to the bare essentials (selector string and Inputfield class) only a handful of Inputfields (AsmSelect, Checkboxes, Text) are (currently) supported Anyway, in case you need to store Page IDs (and Page IDs only) and are happy with the limitations mentioned above, feel free to give this Fieldtype a try. It has been working fine for me in one particular project, but hasn't been tested that much, so please tread carefully – and let me know if you run into any issues.

      This is a lightweight alternative to other newsletter & newsletter-subscription modules.
      You can find the Module in the Modules directory and on Github
      It can subscribe, update, unsubscribe & delete a user in a list in Mailchimp with MailChimp API 3.0. It does not provide any forms or validation, so you can feel free to use your own. To protect your users, it does not save any user data in logs or sends them to an admin.
      This module fits your needs if you...
      ...use Mailchimp as your newsletter / email-automation tool ...want to let users subscribe to your newsletter on your website ...want to use your own form, validation and messages (with or without the wire forms) ...don't want any personal user data saved in any way in your ProcessWire environment (cf. EU data regulation terms) ...like to subscribe, update, unsubscribe or delete users to/from different lists ...like the Mailchimp UI for creating / sending / reviewing email campaigns *I have only tested it with PHP 7.x so far, so use on owners risk
      EDIT:
      I've updated the module to 0.0.4. I removed the instructions from this forum, so I don't have to maintain it on multiple places. Just checkout the readme on github 🙂
      If you have questions or like to contribute, just post a reply or create an issue or pr on github.

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      Hej,
      A module which helps including Photoswipe and brings some modules for rendering gallery markup. Feedback highly appreciated
      (Also pull requests are appreciated 😉 - have a new Job now and don't work a lot with ProcessWire anymore, yet, feel free to contact me here or on GitHub, Im'm still "online"!)

      Modules directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/markup-processwire-photoswipe
      .zip download: https://github.com/blynx/MarkupProcesswirePhotoswipe/archive/master.zip
      You can add a photoswipe enabled thumbnail gallery / lightbox to your site like this. Just pass an image field to the renderGallery method:
      <?php $pwpswp = $modules->get('Pwpswp'); echo $pwpswp->renderGallery($page->nicePictures); Options are provided like so:
      <?php $galleryOptions = [ 'imageResizerOptions' => [ 'size' => '500x500' 'quality' => 70, 'upscaling' => false, 'cropping' => false ], 'loresResizerOptions' => [ 'size' => '500x500' 'quality' => 20, 'upscaling' => false, 'cropping' => false ], 'pswpOptions' => (object) [ 'shareEl' => false, 'indexIndicatorSep' => ' von ', 'closeOnScroll' => false ] ]; echo $pswp->renderGallery($page->images, $galleryOptions); More info about all that is in the readme: https://github.com/blynx/MarkupProcesswirePhotoswipe
      What do you think? Any ideas, bugs, critique, requests?
      cheers
      Steffen
