Thanks @joshuag - just curious - did you also take a look at the rrule code icon idea I brought up?

I did not modify it. I didn't even think of it, but it's a good idea. I'll do a quick update on that. Thanks!

Thanks for the update @joshuag, great to see Recurme continue being updated. 

I haven't had opportunity to update my current installs yet, but have a new project Recurme would be ideal for.

I could not find a way to get the value of the "all day" checkbox and found out that its state is hard-coded (checked) in InputfieldRecurme.module. I need to differentiate between "all day" and "normal" events and output them differently on a clients website. Could you please implement something like a $event->allDay property?

Thanks!

Hey @joshuag, thanks for the update! The toggle fix did not solve my problem (quoted above) because you still do not store the value of the checkbox/toggle. Could you please implement something like an $event->allDay property with a simple binary value? 

Thank you in advance!

$event->allDay should be giving you the value of $allDay in the event object true/false. This is also implemented in the json stored in the field.

Fresh install of PW 3.0.62, I'm getting this error when installing the latest version of Recurme:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 262144 bytes) in /var/sites/t/X/public_html/wire/core/Modules.php on line 3921

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 262144 bytes) in Unknown on line 0

Never seen this before and I'm a bit stumped... Any ideas?

Edit: Increased memory limit with ini_set on the module to see where this goes and got a 30s execution time error. Can't figure this one out, there must be a loop somewhere as increasing that came back to a 800MB memory limit!

Edit 2: Solved! I'll send you an e-mail with details.

Hey @joshuag - not sure if I am just missing it, but is there a method for adding new dates via the API? I have a LOT of events to import. Or, do I have to manually build up the JSON eg:

{"startDate":1518778800,"endDate":1518940740,"allDay":false,"timeEnd":"12:00 pm","dates":["W7/16/Fri/Feb/2018","W7/17/Sat/Feb/2018"],"excluded":[],"active":true,"showResults":true,"rrule":"WKST=MO;FREQ=DAILY;DTSTART=20180216T030000Z;INTERVAL=1;UNTIL=20180217T235900Z"}

and populate with $page->event->date = $jsonStr;

Thanks!

I don’t have a method to add dates via the api, but that is a good idea.

If you do add dates by populating the json manually, I could see some complications arising depending on how you have chosen the repeat pattern in the Recurme Field. Because the dates are generated based on the rrule via JavaScript. 

I will give this some thought and see how we could make this a no-brainer. 

Thanks for the great idea.

Thanks for looking into this - right now I am going to have to either build up the JSON, or wait for you to implement an API method. I think the API method is essential because I am sure others will also need to import dates from existing sites. 

I'd appreciate knowing whether you might have time to implement this relatively quickly, or if you think it might take some time to get to - not pressuring, just needing to know if I need to take the JSON approach to meet my deadlines. Thanks for your time!

Thanks, it worked for events I received through $recurme->find.

I could not find a way to access the allDay value from an event page.

$allDay = $recurme->event($page->id)->allDay;

Could you please point me in the right direction on how to access the allDay property for one single event?

Thank you!

Hey @joshuag - I am quite confused about calling dates via the API.

From the docs it looks like I should do:

$recurme->event($page)->start_date;

but what if I have more than one recurme field on the page?

I am tempted to parse it myself like this:

json_decode($page->event_dates)->startDate;

because this way I can get the start date from my selected "event_dates" field.

However I am sure I am missing something in how this is meant to be used :)

Any tips please?

@joshuag - I am also confused about the output of endDate - it's always a day after the specified end date - is this for some reason intentional? It seems confusing to me.

Note that importing using the script you PM'd me is also problematic with this "bug" - if you provide an end date, the end date shown in the field edit dialog is one day before the end, but when you output it via the API it returns the end date I specified on import, so it's quite confusing to the editor.

Even more confusion. Take these examples - why does the value of enddate vary depending on how I get it?

Ok, more details:If I import a date, the json initially looks like this:

{"startDate":1520956800,"endDate":1522440000,"allDay":false,"timeEnd":"02:00 pm","dates":["W11/13/Tue/Mar/2018","W11/14/Wed/Mar/2018","W11/15/Thu/Mar/2018","W11/16/Fri/Mar/2018","W11/17/Sat/Mar/2018","W11/18/Sun/Mar/2018","W12/19/Mon/Mar/2018","W12/20/Tue/Mar/2018","W12/21/Wed/Mar/2018","W12/22/Thu/Mar/2018","W12/23/Fri/Mar/2018","W12/24/Sat/Mar/2018","W12/25/Sun/Mar/2018","W13/26/Mon/Mar/2018","W13/27/Tue/Mar/2018","W13/28/Wed/Mar/2018","W13/29/Thu/Mar/2018","W13/30/Fri/Mar/2018"],"excluded":[],"active":true,"showResults":false,"rrule":"WKST=MO;FREQ=DAILY;DTSTART=20180313T100000Z;INTERVAL=1;UNTIL=20180330T140000Z"}

Then if I open the page in the admin and save the page (without changing anything), it then looks like this:

{"startDate":1520960400,"endDate":1522479540,"allDay":false,"timeEnd":"02:00 pm","dates":["W11/13/Tue/Mar/2018","W11/14/Wed/Mar/2018","W11/15/Thu/Mar/2018","W11/16/Fri/Mar/2018","W11/17/Sat/Mar/2018","W11/18/Sun/Mar/2018","W12/19/Mon/Mar/2018","W12/20/Tue/Mar/2018","W12/21/Wed/Mar/2018","W12/22/Thu/Mar/2018","W12/23/Fri/Mar/2018","W12/24/Sat/Mar/2018","W12/25/Sun/Mar/2018","W13/26/Mon/Mar/2018","W13/27/Tue/Mar/2018","W13/28/Wed/Mar/2018","W13/29/Thu/Mar/2018"],"excluded":[],"active":true,"showResults":false,"rrule":"WKST=MO;FREQ=DAILY;DTSTART=20180313T100000Z;INTERVAL=1;UNTIL=20180330T140000Z"}

Notice the change in the startDate and endDate stamps as well as the fact that "W13/30/Fri/Mar/2018" is removed after saving.

Help :)

Sorry, me again :)

When I create a new event through the admin and it's a non-recurring event, it doesn't store the enddate:

{"startDate":1522971420,"endDate":false,"allDay":false,"timeEnd":"08:00 pm"

But you have no API method for getting the end time directly in your API calls (at least not that I can see) - what am I missing?

I am not sure that multiple recurme fields in a single page would work as expected. Parsing the Json would work well.

endDate will always be startDate -> till END OF THE CURRENT DAY from the interface if you have a timeEnd (11:59 from your example). endDate always represents the UNIX TIMESTAMP of the day/hour/min in seconds of the END TIME of the event. If you want a date for the events to stop if it is repeating, then it refers the the UNTIL value part of the RRULE UNTIL value. The until value tells recurme to expand the repeating dates up to the UNTIL date. I can see how this is confusing. I might rename these variables now that you have brought it to my attention.

I doubt it's a common scenario, but I have never seen a PW fieldtype work this way - normally you just call $page->fieldname so it's weird to get used to parsing an entire page to $recurme.

Looking at this all again now. I am working with manually created events (so there aren't any complications with API import) and I am still confused.

This is what I set up:

image.thumb.png.193df0834b9bf4c0fcf0eab290681280.png

 

$recurme->renderEvent($page, array('dateFormat' => 'M d, Y @ g:i a'));

results in: Error: Trying to get property of non-object on line: 682 of MarkupRecurme.module

If I do:

image.png.48d9ed3b2ca9ede323d68ad38480a5be.png

you can see that the "time" is off by an hour - probably a timezone issue, but how can I manually output something like:

March 13th - March 30th, 2018
10:00 am - 2:00 pm

This sort of output I am sure is quite common.

The problem is that end_date: 1522562399 is 2018-03-31 11:59 but the event only goes until the 30th. So how do I get the 30th - do I have to parse UNTIL from rrule, or can do take end_date and subtract one day - what is the reliable way to get the actual end date?

Sorry if I am being stupid - I can't believe I am the only person to come across these issues, but I don't think I am missing anything - I think the module just needs more properties with things like actual start date, start time, end date and end time so we can easily output custom formats.

Let me know if you want to spend a little time on a live chat/call about this.

Thanks!

Hey @joshuag - firstly I wanted to send some kudos your way - I feel like I've been complaining lots in my last few posts :) I have been playing around with RenderList, RenderEvent, RenderCalendar etc, and the backend Calendar views and they really are awesome - thanks for all the hard work!

I do have a request though - I have been looking at the rrule in the json and wondering if you'd consider adding a helper to parse the rule into plain english. I'd love to be able to output this: 

WKST=MO;FREQ=MONTHLY;DTSTART=20180402T100000Z;INTERVAL=1;BYDAY=TU;BYSETPOS=2;UNTIL=20180428T235900Z

as: 

Every second Tuesday from 10 am to 2 pm from April 2nd, 2018 till April 28th, 2018

Do you have any thoughts on this? Is there already an inbuilt method that I missed that would help with this?

Thanks again!

change the timeFormat option instead,

or

change the xBefore template to use {date} instead of {time}.
 

'xBefore' => '<li class="rm-list-event {original.name}"><span class="rm-event-date">{time}</span> ',

yeah, this looks like a timezone issue. I am digging into it. thanks for bringing it up. Subtracting one day won't work or be consistent.

      This is a website for the musical area of the protestant town church Pforzheim, Germany. Our agency designconcepts developed a website that provides informations about the choirs, ensembles and orchestras as well as dates for their rehearsals, services and concerts.
      The website was build with help of the framework UIkit.
      www.musik.stadtkirche-pforzheim.de
       
      Features:
      Events Download dates  
      Events

      The events for rehearsals, services and concerts were created in Microsoft Excel and then imported as pages from CSV. For better organization, events are cross-referenced with choirs, ensembles and orchestras. Services and concerts are displayed in a events list, but rehearsals are only displayed on the page of the choir, ensemble or orchestra, to make the events list more compact.
       
      Download dates

      It is possible to download every event date as ICS file, which will be generated on clicking the download button. You can then add this event easily to your calendar app and stay up-to-date.

      I've created a small module which lets you define a timestamp after which a page should be accessible. In addition you can define a timestamp when the release should end and the page should not be accessable any more.
      Github: https://github.com/Sebiworld/PageAccessReleasetime
      Usage
      PageAccessReleasetime can be installed like every other module in ProcessWire. Check the following guide for detailed information: How-To Install or Uninstall Modules
      After that, you will find checkboxes for activating the releasetime-fields at the settings-tab of each page. You don't need to add the fields to your templates manually.
      Check e.g. the checkbox "Activate Releasetime from?" and fill in a date in the future. The page will not be accessable for your users until the given date is reached.
      If you have $config->pagefileSecure = true, the module will protect files of unreleased pages as well.
      How it works
      This module hooks into Page::viewable to prevent users to access unreleased pages:
      public function hookPageViewable($event) { $page = $event->object; $viewable = $event->return; if($viewable){ // If the page would be viewable, additionally check Releasetime and User-Permission $viewable = $this->canUserSee($page); } $event->return = $viewable; } To prevent access to the files of unreleased pages, we hook into Page::isPublic and ProcessPageView::sendFile.
      public function hookPageIsPublic($e) { $page = $e->object; if($e->return && $this->isReleaseTimeSet($page)) { $e->return = false; } } The site/assets/files/ directory of pages, which isPublic() returns false, will get a '-' as prefix. This indicates ProcessWire (with activated $config->pagefileSecure) to check the file's permissions via PHP before delivering it to the client.
      The check wether a not-public file should be accessable happens in ProcessPageView::sendFile. We throw an 404 Exception if the current user must not see the file.
      public function hookProcessPageViewSendFile($e) { $page = $e->arguments[0]; if(!$this->canUserSee($page)) { throw new Wire404Exception('File not found'); } } Additionally we hook into ProcessPageEdit::buildForm to add the PageAccessReleasetime fields to each page and move them to the settings tab.
      Limitations
      In the current version, releasetime-protected pages will appear in wire('pages')->find() queries. If you want to display a list of pages, where pages could be releasetime-protected, you should double-check with $page->viewable() wether the page can be accessed. $page->viewable() returns false, if the page is not released yet.
      If you have an idea how unreleased pages can be filtered out of ProcessWire selector queries, feel free to write an issue, comment or make a pull request!

      Thanks to the great Pro module "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use this module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      With this proof of concept I have created a module which adds the feature to copy a repeater item to the clipboard so that you can paste this item to another page with the same repeater field. The module has been developed very rudimentarily so far. It is currently not possible to copy nested items. There is also no check of Min/Max. You can also only copy items that have the same field on different pages. And surely you can solve all this more elegantly with AJAX. But personally I lack the deeper understanding of the repeaters. Also missing on the Javascript side are event triggers for the repeaters, which would make it easier. Like e.g. RepeaterItemInitReady or similar.
      it would be great if @ryan would implement this functionality in the core of RepeaterMatrix. I think he has better ways to implement this. Or what do you think, Ryan?
      Everybody is welcome to work on this module and improve it, if it should not be integrated into the matrix core. Therefore I put it for testing and as download on GitHub: https://github.com/FlipZoomMedia/InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDublicate
      You can best see the functionality in the screencast:

      Hi,
      Please take a look at this:
      https://templatemag.com/demo/Good/
      The upper nav bar, including dropdowns like "pages" and "portfolios", what do you call this whole thing? At first I guess it's called "dropdown nav bar", but seems not.
      AND of course, what's the simplest way/module to achieve this in PW?
      Thanks in advance.

      Hey, I'm new and I created a simple module for tagging pages because I didn't found a module for it (sadly this is not a core feature). This module is licensed under the GPL3 and cames with absolutly no warranty at all. You should test the module before using it in production environments. Currently it's an alpha release. if you like the module or have ideas for improvements feel free to post a comment. Currently this fieldtype is only compatible with the Inputfield I've created to because I haven't found  an Inputfield yet, that returns arrays from a single html input.
