Recurme – Processwire Recurring Dates Field & Custom Calendar Module.

Recommended Posts

The fix seems to be to set all events as recurring, and use a count of one for events that don't actually recur.

@joshuag

Got some notices when installing that you might like to fix:

Also, and much more importantly, on the UiKit theme, there are some big CSS issues:

Also, I don't understand why the start date includes the time when "All Day" is checked. Maybe I am missing something, but I think that makes it quite a confusing UI. Is there a way around this?

Another issue I am having is how to define an end date/time if it's not a recurring event. I was hoping I wouldn't need separate fields for recurring and non-recurring events. Do I?

Thanks!

I'm trying to pass options to both renderEvent() and renderList(), but the functions aren't picking up my settings.
Here's code from my list display page:
 

$siteEvents = $pages->find("template=meetingevent, sort=meeting-event-date-recurring");

$options = array(
'selector'			=> '',
'monthFormat'		=> 'F',
'dateField'			=> 'recurme',
'renderEvent' 		=> array(
	'dateFormat' 	=> 'M d, Y @ g:i a',
	'timeFormat' 	=> 'g:i a',
	'dayFormat'		=> 'd',
	'monthFormat'	=> 'M',
	'yearFormat'	=> 'Y',
	'hourFormat'	=> 'g',
	'minuteFormat'	=> 'i',
	'secondFormat'	=> 's',
	'ampmFormat'	=> 'a',
	'xBefore' 		=> '<li class="rm-list-event {original.name}">ASDF<span class="rm-event-date">{time}</span> ',
	'xItem'			=> '<a href="{link}" title="{title}">',
	'xAfter'		=> 'STRING {title}</a></li>'
),
'renderDay'			=> array(
	'xBefore'		=> '<ol class="rm-list-day {todayClass} rm-{dayName}"><li><h3>',
	'xItem'			=> '<span class="rm-date-day">{day}</span><span class="rm-date-month">{month}</span><span class="rm-date-year">{year}</span></h3>',
	'xListBefore'	=> '<ol class="rm-list-events">',
	'xListAfter'	=> '</ol><!-- close list-events -->',
	'xAfter'		=> '</li></ol><!-- close day -->'
),
'renderMonth'		=> array(
	'xBefore'		=> '<ul class="rm-list-month rm-{month}"><li>',
	'xItem'			=> '<h2>{month}</h2>',
	'xAfter'		=> '</li></ul><!-- close month -->'
),
'cache'				=> true,
'cacheName'			=> '',
'noEvents'			=> '<p>No events to show!</p>',
);

$content .= $recurme->renderList($siteEvents, $options);

Events.png.5c55137a87cef596121185bd64141a91.png
Output looks like the attached screen shot.
Note that I'm not seeing any of my customization (I changed the UL to OL and added some strings, to test). 
I'm also not seeing Dates displayed.
Clearly I've missed something here - any help appreciated.

If I understand correctly you have to get the events from $recurme->find() or equivalent.

Actually i completely worked around this, pulling apart the object returned by $recurme->event() and formatting the whole setup myself.
But next time...
Anyway thanks for the tip.

Hi guys, sorry for the delay in replying.

I am going over the following details from this thread and will post an update ASAP:

  • Install issues - blank file path, notices.
  • UIKIT theme CSS conflicts.
  • returning data on non-recurring events
  • all day toggle 
  • render methods and output overrides. 

As soon as I have an update, I will post it here to the forum.

@joshuag Early on in the thread you mentioned a work-in-progress fix for the 2800 event limit, and also about a more elegant update feature when adding exclusions. Any update on this? I've scanned the posts in the rest of the thread but might have missed it. Have these issues been addressed in the current version?

Hi Netcarver, 

Currently, I am still unable to break that limit or 2800 repeats of an event. Even so, that is a long time:

Example Recurring Time:

Daily = approx. 7.5 years
Weekly = approx. 53.5 years
Monthly = approx. 233 years
Yearly = approx. 2800 years

I am working on a copy of recurme with a revised interface but it is nowhere near complete. The current exclusion works ok for 99% of the use cases. Although I do agree that it could be GREATLY improved. I would like to focus on fixing the more pressing bugs before releasing any huge changes to the interface.

Thanks for the getting to these issues @joshuag

1) It looks like the UiKit theme issues are fixed

2) I can't seem to save a non all day event. I uncheck "all day" and enter a start and end time, but when I save the page, the "all day" is checked and the end time isn't saved.

3) The results seem to be off by a day - note 15/16 vs 14/15 in the results.

Hmmm. That is very strange that you can’t save. Do you have any js errors?

also, have you set your timezone in the config? 

Looking to see if I can Reproduce this. 

Thanks a lot!

Looks like it's ok now - I changed the date to something else, then saved and now it's working. Not sure if it was some change tracking issue or what. I did try several times before, but seems ok now - I'll keep an eye on it and let you know.

Let me know if you have troubles reproducing the results table issue.

Also, would you consider changing the behavior of the code icon - I see that it's a tooltip for the RRule, but it might be nice if there was no target, because I thought it was clickable and the # target directs me to the top of the page and makes me think the link is broken. I actually think it might be nice if clicking it showed the RRule below, like the results table shows.

This question is not really specific to this module, but I am wondering if there is a standard way to handle multiday events that have different start/end times on different days, like a concert or conference. I am guessing these just need to be single separate events, otherwise it's not really a recurring event?

@adrian yes, I could change the rrule. Good idea. 

Thank you for testing this and the detailed feedback. I’m trying to track down why it’s not saving your start time or this would be happening. I’ll post a fix as soon as I can reproduce it and figure it out :) 

As for multi-day events, you are correct, they can repeat on those days, or be separate events. Currently I have no means to span days with events.

Looks like there is no timeStart in the POST data:

image.thumb.png.6bf87473168e8ed53dfc69e95d1039cd.png

{"startDate":1518699600,"endDate":1518854340,"allDay":false,"timeEnd":"03:00 pm","dates":["W7/14/Wed/Feb/2018","W7/15/Thu/Feb/2018"],"excluded":[],"active":false,"showResults":true,"rrule":"WKST=MO;FREQ=DAILY;DTSTART=20180215T050000Z;INTERVAL=1;UNTIL=20180216T235900Z"}

There is no timeStart in the data since I am saving the date+timeStart as a Unix timestamp.

It looks like the timestamp is not being updated, because that timestamp is showing 5am in the POST data after saving.

      Needed a really simple solution to embed audio files within page content and couldn't find a module for that, so here we go. Textformatter Audio Embed works a bit like Textformatter Video Embed, converting this:
      <p>https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3</p> Into this:
      <audio controls class="TextformatterAudioEmbed"> <source src="https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3" type="audio/mpeg"> </audio> The audio element has pretty good browser support, so quite often this should be enough to get things rolling 🙂

      Hi all, I am going round and round in circles and would greatly appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction.
      I am sure I am doing something dumb, or missing something I should know, but don't. Story of my life 😉

      Playing round with a module and my basic problem is I want to upload an image and also use InputfieldMarkup and other Inputfields.
      Going back and forth between trying an api generated page defining Fieldgroup, Template, Fields, Page and the InputfieldWrapper method.

      InputfieldWrapper method works great for all the markup stuff, but I just can't wrap my head around what I need to do to save the image to the database.
      Can generate a Field for it (thanks to the api investigations) but not sure what I need to do to link the Inputfield to that. Tried a lot of stuff from various threads, of varying dates without luck.
      Undoubtedly not helped by me not knowing enough.

      Defining Fieldgroup etc through the api seems nice and clean and works great for the images but I can't wrap my head around how/if I can add/append/hook the InputfieldWrapper/InputfieldMarkup stuff I'd like to include on that template as well. Not even sure if it should be where it is on ___install with the Fieldtype stuff or later on . Not getting Tracy errors, just nothing seems to happen.
      If anyone has any ideas or can point me in the right direction, that would be great because at the moment I am stumbling round in the dark.

      Since it's featured in ProcessWire Weekly #310, now is the time to make it official:
      Here is Twack!
      I really like the following introduction from ProcessWire Weekly, so I hope it is ok if I use it here, too. Look at the project's README for more details!
      Twack is a new — or rather newish — third party module for ProcessWire that provides support for reusable components in an Angular-inspired way. Twack is implemented as an installable module, and a collection of helper and base classes. Key concepts introduced by this module are:
      Components, which have separate views and controllers. Views are simple PHP files that handle the output for the component, whereas controllers extend the TwackComponent base class and provide additional data handling capabilities. Services, which are singletons that provide a shared service where components can request data. The README for Twack uses a NewsService, which returns data related to news items, as an example of a service. Twack components are designed for reusability and encapsulating a set of features for easy maintainability, can handle hierarchical or recursive use (child components), and are simple to integrate with an existing site — even when said site wasn't originally developed with Twack.
      A very basic Twack component view could look something like this:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; ?> <h1>Hello World!</h1> And here's how you could render it via the API:
      <?php namespace Processwire; $twack = $modules->get('Twack'); $hello = $twack->getNewComponent('HelloWorld'); ?> <html> <head> <title>Hello World</title> </head> <body> <?= $hello->render() ?> </body> </html> Now, just to add a bit more context, here's a simple component controller:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; class HelloWorld extends TwackComponent { public function __construct($args) { parent::__construct($args); $this->title = 'Hello World!'; if(isset($args['title'])) { $this->title = $args['title']; } } } As you can see, there's not a whole lot new stuff to learn here if you'd like to give Twack a try in one of your projects. The Twack README provides a really informative and easy to follow introduction to all the key concepts (as well as some additional examples) so be sure to check that out before getting started. 
      Twack is in development for several years and I use it for every new project I build. Also integrated is an easy to handle workflow to make outputs as JSON, so it can be used to build responses for a REST-api as well. I will work that out in one section in the readme as well. 
      If you want to see the module in an actual project, I have published the code of www.musical-fabrik.de in a repository. It runs completely with Twack and has an app-endpoint with ajax-output as well.
      I really look forward to hear, what you think of Twack🥳!

      Page Reference Default Value
      Most ProcessWire core inputfield types that can be used with a Page Reference field support a "Default value" setting. This module extends support for default values to the following core inputfield types:
      Page List Select Page List Select Multiple Page Autocomplete (single and multiple) Seeing as these inputfield types only support the selection of pages a Page List Select / Page List Select Multiple is used for defining the default value instead of the Text / Textarea field used by the core for other inputfield types. This makes defining a default value a bit more user-friendly.
      Note that as per the core "Default value" setting, the Page Reference field must be set to "required" in order for the default value to be used.
