Hi @bot19,

Welcome to the forums. The second error is, yes, as a result of trying to install again whilst there are left over components from the first install that failed. I am not sure why the first one failed. I have never seen that error before. As for cleaning up, normally, if the install had worked, you would have a cleanup menu. Since install failed, that cannot help you now. I have an old gist for such eventualities. I believe it should still work. Please use it to cleanup and then try to re-install Blog. If it fails again, we will debug the issue step-by-step.

Hey @kongondo, thanks! I've been browsing here for a while but couldn't contribute much as a newbie so I've only just signed up now.

I downloaded the cleaner file, changed it to .php, associated it with a page and accessed the page to run it (only way I knew how to do this). It seems successful from the screen attached. 

I guess we will need to debug it. Thank you for your help!

I'm using browsersync so it has an external port I can provide for you, as well as access to the CMS. I'm happy to do it together at a time when you're free, as I can make any changes you need  to debug.

Thanks again very much!

Great. Try and re-install Blog and we'll take it from there.

@kongondo

Ah, sorry I just re-read my previous post and noticed I forgot the most important part: I did try a reinstall, but encountered the same error as before :(

Also, the external URL I was talking about only works on the same wifi. If you need to dig around I can work something out. Let me know what's next.

I'll have a look too and see what I can understand.

Thanks!

Hi @bot19,

I've been a bit busy with other stuff. I see from your other thread that the issue is not Blog-specific but a general ProcessWire issue. Let's talk there.

Hi all. 

I am intending to ONLY support ProcessWire 3.x starting from the next version of this module. Please have a read here and let me know what you think. Thanks.

Hi Kongondo!
I am really liking your Blog module (v2.4.1). And I have a question (processwire 3.0.62):
Under the section for Tags, I have a child tag that is parented to /tags/
Then I created a grandchild tag and it is parented to /tags/ but I want to change its parent to /tags/child/

When I try to do so, the UI only shows parent /child/ and when I save I get an error saying that the parent should be /tags/child/

Do I need to do something extra? Or is the parenting child to grandchild broken somehow?

Welcome to the forums @Orodreth

Blog does not support grandchild tags, hence the error. I have no current plans to change this behaviour, unfortunately.

Love love love your blog module. I have used it multiple times on sites I have built for clients. Recently ran into a weird issue. I installed your latest version of your blog module on latest processwire. When I got to save the settings in the blog quick settings tab, they dont save. The fields reload blank. Any idea?

I'll have a look when I update the module to support ProcessWire 3 only. Meanwhile, you could try saving the settings directly via their respective pages. Some live in the comments page, etc. Gotta run, so can't provide more info, sorry.

I'm, having some issues after putting a site on a live server - maybe someone has an idea as to how to solve this.

 

I moved the site from localhost/pagename to pagename.tld. The blog posts show up in the frontend, so that's fine.

The issues are as follows:
In the admin area, clicking on the "Blog" Tab (which links to pagename.tld/processwire/blog/) results in " The requested process does not exist "

So there's no functionality there. I realize this is basically a 404 in the admin, not sure how to fix that though.

I'm using PW 3.0.75 and the latest blog module version off github, PHP7 on the live server.

Anyone got an idea as to how fix this?

Hi @Sebastian. What's the difference between your local and remote servers? I have also not tried Blog on PHP 7. 

I'm hoping to move Blog fully to PW3.x sometime soon (maybe early 2018). Maybe then I can test on PHP7.

Hi @kongondo. Well the difference is that localhost ist still PHP 5.6something :) and there the site runs out of a subfolder.

We're going full PHP7 on servers going forward (I'm guessing that's not uncommon now), so that's maybe something worth keeping an eye on.

I'm not sure if the problem is PHP 7 though - if I find the time i'm gonna setup a fresh page on 7, and install the blog module there - I'll report any findings here.

Hey @kongondo - lots of warnings and notices.

I am running php 7.2. I don't see any issue with The requested process does not exist  - that sounds to me like the Process module wasn't installed properly, or the Admin > Blog page somehow has an incorrect Process assigned to. @Sebastian - can you check those?

Thanks @adrian.

I'll have a look. I currently have up to PHP 7.0. It seems I'll need an app that enables me to easily switch versions. I've tried several in the past but none of them worked well so I settled for UwAMP which does have its issues to.

Hey adrian,

what I did is export / reimport the DB and copying the files over, as per usual.
I'd gladly check Process assignment wrt Blog, how do I do that?

thanks,
Sebastian

In the page tree, go to Admin > Blog and EDIT and it should look like this:

Does anyone know best approach to including the featured image in the post itself? Let’s say below the rendered head of the post? I already have it setup as an option in the blog home page but not the post. 

Thanks!

Apologies I've never gotten round to completing the documentation. Please see the options here.

What you want is post_large_image and possible the other post_large_image_* options.

I seem to have another issue, and as far as I've found out (having searched all the way through the forum), this is related to the small version of posts stripping tags. More exactly, I can't get 'post_small_allowable_tags' to work. I just can't seem to get the "view more" anchor appear.

The affected page is a blog-category view (based on the module's blog-category.php), where I get a few post excerpts from a given category, ideally with adding that "view more" tag. Which is nowhere to be found in the output. :(

The relevant parts of my template file look like this:


$options = array('post_small_allowable_tags' => '<p><a>', 'post_more_text' => 'tovább');
$content .= $blog->renderPosts($posts, true, $options);

Then the html output looks like this:


<div class="summary">
  <p>It's my blogpost and here is a 
    <a href="http://...">link to my another article in the text working fine.</a>
    Some more text, some more text, some more text.</p>
</div>

It is strange, because inside .summary I do have <p> and <a> tags, but <a> is only for the content (because there is a link in the referred article itself). But I don't have "view more" at the end of the summary.

Thank you very much for your help in advance!

 

Hi @zkriszti,

Sorry for the very late response. I have not been able to replicate this. It works fine for me as you can see in the following screens Both <p> and <a> if allowed, pass through just fine.

Without 'allowed tags'

Hi Jeff. I've not encountered this issue. Could you please test the latest (2.4.2) version and let me know if it resolves your issue? What version of PHP are you running? 

Thanks.

I’d like to add ‘placeholder’ texts in the name, email, and text input fields of the comment function. How do I do this?

Hi @Claus,

I've now implemented this in Blog version 2.4.2. Pass the options available in Comments Form as part of the third parameter in Blog's renderComments(). E.g. 

$blog = $modules->get("MarkupBlog");
$presets = array('cite'=>'Your Name', 'email'=>'Your Email');
$options = array('headline'=> 'Say something', 'presets'=> $presets, 'presetsEditable' => true);
echo $blog->renderComments($page->blog_comments, 0, $options);

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      Why?
      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Installation
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.

      Croppable Image 3
      for PW 3.0.20+
      Module Version 1.1.16
      Sponsored by http://dreikon.de/, many thanks Timo & Niko!
      You can get it in the modules directory!
      Please refer to the readme on github for instructions.
       
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      Updating from prior versions:
       
      Updating from Croppable Image 3 with versions prior to 1.1.7, please do this as a one time step:
      In the PW Admin, go to side -> modules -> new, use "install via ClassName" and use CroppableImage3 for the Module Class Name. This will update your existing CroppableImage3 module sub directory, even if it is called a new install. After that, the module will be recogniced by the PW updater module, what makes it a lot easier on further updates.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      For updating from the legacy Thumbnail / CropImage to CroppableImage3 read on here.

      UPDATE: I have published a stable version of this module!
      Discussion thread:
      Github: https://github.com/MoritzLost/TextformatterPageTitleLinks
      ---
      Hello there,
      I'm working on a tiny textformatter module that searches the text for titles of other pages on your site and creates hyperlinks to them. I'm not sure if something like this exists already, but I haven't found anything in the module directory, so I wrote my own solution 🙂
      It's not properly tested yet and is still missing some functionality I would like to implement, so at the moment it should be considered in BETA. Features include limiting the pages that will get searched by template, and adding a custom CSS class to the generated hyperlinks. As I'm writing this I noticed that it will probably include unpublished and hidden pages at the moment, so yeah ... it's still in development alright 😅
      You can download the module from Github:
      https://github.com/MoritzLost/TextformatterPageTitleLinks
      There's some more information in the readme as well.
      Anyway, let me know what you think! I'm happy about any feedback, possible improvements or ideas on how to improve the module. Cheers.
    • By Violet
      Here I'm writing up about my first ProcessWire site, Reached.space, a blog and directory about shops which offer international shipping. 
      I'm from The GrayFly Group, which is the registered trade name for GrayFly Stationery, LLC, a limited liability company registered in the state of Kentucky, USA. You might ask, why is a stationery company creating websites?! Well, in a way both activities are very similar: both activities have the goal of getting written messages across in a pleasing manner to the reader.
      With that out of the way, let's move on and explain what went on behind the scenes of the Reached.space site:
      Template
      I used a free CSS-based template from W3CSS at https://www.w3schools.com/w3css/w3css_templates.asp , using mainly the "Architect" template as the basis and modifying it as needed.
      Pagination
      The pagination feature of ProcessWire was very helpful here; I kept the home page to just two blogroll articles so that the reader was not overwhelmed, but upon pressing "more articles" the remainder of the blogroll is paginated with 4 articles to a page.
      Screen reader
      I made adjustments to my usage of the template to make it screen-reader-friendly. I used the Google Chrome extension to test out how the site would be handled with a screen reader.
      Security
      Security is always important, so I was thrilled to find a great all-in-one-place security guide in the ProcessWire docs at https://processwire.com/docs/security/ - I simply went through the guide and did what it said, using it as a checklist.  
      Modules
      As far as I'm aware, the only additional modules I used (that were not already activated by default in standard PW install) were the Upgrade and Upgrade Checker modules. The main reason for this was security considerations, but it was also an added convenience and peace of mind to have it check for updates every time I logged in.
      However, I did use additional software that was not modules, as described below.
      Other software - Simple HTML DOM
      Here I was very fortunate to receive help from the ProcessWire community on the forum. Due to the site's monetization model being affiliate marketing, I wished to make all my external links nofollow and target _blank by default. User @Robin S was instrumental in showing me how to do this using Simple HTML DOM in the forum post  https://processwire.com/talk/topic/17295-solved-how-to-make-external-links-nofollow-and-target-_blank-by-default-if-using-source-code-toggle-in-editor/
      Other software - Google Analytics cookie manager
      My site requirements for GDPR were specific enough that I felt I would rather develop my own code to handle Google Analytics tracking, which I'll describe here. I wanted to be certain GA tracking was disabled by default requiring opt-in, instead of opt-out. I also included in the Cookie Manager some written info about third party cookies (these are placed when clicking on affiliate links) and how the user can avoid such tracking (turn off third party cookies in their browser settings). 
      I also disabled front-end PW cookies as described here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15270-session-storage-and-lifetime/ 
      Google Analytics cookie settings
      The Google Analytics cookie setting code was done using JavaScript. I used a session storage variable to indicate whether the user had a) accepted GA tracking cookies b) declined them or c) had not made a choice yet. I also had to make some changes also to the <head> code to ensure Google Analytics cookies were not set unless the user had accepted them. 
      Efficiency - optimizing 404s
      I used the guide at https://processwire.com/blog/posts/optimizing-404s-in-processwire/ to sinkhole bot-driven 404 requests to a static 404 file. 
      Back office pic
      Below is an image of how ProcessWire allows helpful field descriptions and displays them when used in templates, so that when I come to actually use or enter content in fields I created months ago, I know what the ramifications are. Very helpful. Also, when using the back office I found the Reno admin theme to be very pleasing, efficient, and easy to use.
