Module: Blog

Recommended Posts

I guess you are using ProcessWire 3.x? Make sure you have the Comments field module installed. Try refreshing (recompiling) modules.

Unfortunately this did not help. FieldtypeComments is installed and Comments are also installed. This is not a problem. I'm looking for the Disqus comments for my ProcessWire website. You can not change that later. Therefore, use a commentary System.

OK. Would have loved to get to the bottom of this though. Comments seem to work for some but not for others...

Hello,

What version of ProcessWire and what admin theme (Default, Reno, new UIkit 3 one...) are you using?

Isn't there a View tab/link that enables you to (pre)view the post/page even when it's unpublished?
You normally have options on how to open the "view".

I'm facing another problem. Posts don't show up on the front-end, but when I login to the admin, I can see them on the fornt-end. Any idea what could be causing this behaviour?

Some more avanced users will certainly help you.

I've never used it. I've just installed it once (perhaps?) to try/test it.

Just for information:

Role and Permission

Note that Blog installs the role 'blog-author' and permission 'blog'. These are available to you to control access as you wish. They are not automatically applied to any user. With these, you can can control the finer details of your blog. 

And you perhaps have to give the good permission(s) for guest in the Access tab of the relevant template used by posts (and perhaps also of the template of their parent page).

And/or give a permission(s) related to the blog for the guest role (in the guest role page).

Sorry I'm not able to help more.

NB: in the new Regular profile (module) there is also an example of a blog instance.

I've set the permissions to give access to blog to users and guest. Post show up on front-end only when I'm logged in as Admin.

Hi all,

Is anyone using the super ProcessBlog module with PWs multi-language support? I have five languages setup and all pages are running correctly in all languages / falling back to default (English) when no other language is available etc.

That is apart from the main blog page and it's children (the posts). I'm using the standard gateway method for urls (e.g. http://www.mysite.com/fr/blog) and standard language switch code as described here

I should also note I am only running manual input of translated content, no auto translation.

All pages are present in my main menu (no matter what language is selected) apart from 'Blog' which disappears when any language that isn't the default (English) is selected. Also, if you visit the blog page in English the language selector (which shows all languages on all other pages) only shows 'English' as being available. I'm guessing this has something to do with the way the blog is rewriting URLs (in my case to mysite.com/blog/post-title, i.e. the posts are not children of a category) but I am only guessing!

Versions in use are:

PW 3.0.42

ProcessBlog 2.4.0

I've looked at the title field in use for the blog page which is set to 'PageTitleLanguage' as are all other pages.

Anyone have any ideas as this is driving my nuts today! :-)

Thanks in advance,

Geoff.

Okay, this is sorted out. It was the "access" issue with the "blog-post" template. I removed "view and edit" access restriction and it works.

Thanks for your help @christophe

Just confirmed this behavior is the same with a fresh install of PW (Minimal Profile) and ProcessBlog. Is there likely to ever be a fix to make ProcessBlog compatible with multi-lingual or is there an architectural problem?

Thanks.

    I know this is probably embarrassingly simple, but I can't change the CSS for this blog for the life of me.  I'm trying to get the blog to match the look of the default PW templates so I've added:

<link href='//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lusitana:400,700|Quattrocento:400,700' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />

to blog-main.inc and I've also changed the navigation section in blog.css as follows:

/* Navigation */
ul#navbar {
    font-size: 2.85em;
    list-style: none;
    padding: 0 0 15px 0;
/*     font-family: 'Shadows Into Light', cursive; */
    font-family: Quattrocento;
}

    Unfortuantely, nothing changes when I reload the page.  When I view the source code, I don't see the changes I've made - it looks like the CSS has been cached somewhere and it's still pulling the old version.  I also see that the CSS has been minified (on the fly?) and I don't know where that's happening, either.

    I just installed everything the other day, so I have the latest versions.
    
    What do I need to do to get my changes to take?
        
Thanks,
Frank

Hi @SSC,

Welcome aboard!

I don't use it so I have to ask, Is blog-main.inc the file that contains the HTML <head> section?

Try a force reload (chrome browser) or whichever browser you are using.

Yes it is.

I've not only tried that, but I've used multiple browsers, so I don't think it's a browser issue.

Okay, that eliminates one possible issue.

Next, Have you looked at the network console (dev tools) to see if the google font is loading or gives an error?

Since the font isn't appearing, it sounds like it's not loaded, so the browser reverts to its default font.

The font is loading.  Here's the head section:

<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
<title>Blog</title>
<link href='https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lusitana:400,700|Quattrocento:400,700' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/>
<link href='https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Archivo+Narrow:400,400italic,700,700italic' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/blog/site/templates/css/pocketgrid.css"/>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/blog/site/templates/css/blog.css"/>
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/blog/site/templates/scripts/blog.js"></script>
</head>

However, when I view /blog/site/templates/css/blog.css, I still see 

... font-family:'Shadows Into Light',cursive; ...

For some reason, the changed CSS file isn't being grabbed.

I've also deleted all cache and session files, but that didn't help.

Thanks,

Frank

I just noticed something.  When I view the cached file /blog/site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/site/modules/MarkupBlog/template-files/blog-main.inc, it does not contain the changes I've made to blog-main.inc, but it should, correct?

Yes it should. You can delete the cache and ProcessWire will regenerate it.

Dev tools will show you other issues that may affect what you are seeing. For example, this image shows a css file not loading, which may indicate a typo in the path.

devtools.jpg.a9336a9876d658c6d2789f43b6968216.jpg

While this image shows bootstrap loaded 'after' the google font, which will overwrite the google font definition.

Well this is embarrassing.  Turns out the problem was being caused by CloudFlare's cache.  Since I rarely do stuff like this, I never remember to turn that off before I start changing things.  All I can say is that I'm glad it's Friday. >:(

Thanks for your help, Rick.

I have previously tested Blog in a multi-lingual environment in ProcessWire 2.7 and it worked just fine. I don't know much about multi-lingual environments though. I am also not sure whether this is specific to ProcessWire 3.x. Unfortunately I do not have time to invest in looking into this particular issue. If anyone can come up with a PR I'll gladly consider it.

Hi @kongondo,

I'm having a problem with pagination for the blog. The pagination links appear alright, but when I click on page 2 it brings me back to the top of the first page? What could be wrong? Appreciate your help. Thanks.

I'm using ProcessWire 3.0.61 and ProcessBlog 2.4.0

Off the top of my head ...

1. Is pagination enabled on that template?

2.

      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.

      Hi, in wordpress homepage we can put a list of LAST ARTICLES AND COMMENTS.
      Can I do same thing with processwire?
      If yes, how?
      There is a tutorial?

      Thanks!
