Atano,

I can't see your image clearly nor able to download it. I can't read the error messages on the Tags, Categories and Comments visibility. However, the error 'maximum function nesting level of 100 reached' is a well known xdebug issue. Here's how to solve it. That will probably sort out your other issues as well.

Some module developers haven't yet updated their modules' PW version compatibility list. SchedulePages will work just fine in 2.5. Did you try it?

OK. Try and solve your error in 5.1 as I showed you above and see if that sorts out the other issues...

Hmmm...that is strange...Hard to tell what it is since I have just tested the install and it works just fine. I  think these resulted from the first error (5.1) and the installer didn't finish. Can you please use Blog 'Cleanup' to uninstall all the Blog components (leaving only the module) and start again from your step #3? If that doesn't resolve the issue, completely uninstall the module and start afresh.

Yes, if using PW 2.5

Modules -> New -> Add module from URL-> point to the zip file in Blog dev branch (if you can't wait till this coming week when I merge to Master). PW will upgrade Blog. Nothing will be reinstalled. The code will be updated. As usual, good to test first before deploying to a production environment. Yes, alternatively, you can manually overwrite the old module files with the new ones...You might then want to refresh your modules list for latest module version numbers to show...

Hmm, not necessarily a blog issue, but I did the update last week and it all said it worked fine, but I've only just got around to trying the comments change, and when it didn't work, I looked at the MarkupBlog module and there are no changes in it. Not a drama I can change it manually, but I wonder why it didn't work?

Something else I've just come across. Since I'll be probably posting articles and don't particularly want to swap between an admin login and an author login all the time, I was hoping for some way to change the Author links to use the display name, instead of the username. I'm guessing this would require module changing and not just something I could code myself while still using the MarkupBlog author functions?

I don't get this bit. There are changes to renderPosts() right here on line #663 :-). I added the option 'post_comments'

'post_comments' => 1,//show comments info? 0=off,1=comments count top,2=comments count bottom,3=comments count top & bottom

Are you certain you passed the option to renderPosts()? By default, the comments count is displayed at the top. To not display it, you would need to do something similar to below in your blog-post.php template file and something similar in your blog-posts.php

$options = array('post_comments' => 0);//don't display post comments count
$blog = $modules->get("MarkupBlog");
echo $blog->renderPosts($page,'',$options);

I'm guessing this would require module changing and not just something I could code myself while still using the MarkupBlog author functions?

By default Blog will try to display the author's full names. If none are found, it will display their user name. To set up the 'display names', you will need to add these to the field labelled 'Display name (first and last name)' [a title field] when editing the user's profile, i.e. Admin > Access > Users

Oh sorry I think I've confused you. The module was not updated by the update process. I ran the "update from url" step, but then when I looked today, the module was still the old one. No drana I just downloaded the .zip again and overwrote with the new module.

As for aurhor name, I have it displaying my name fine, but the problem is the link url still shows the username, not the display name, thereby giving someone withp malicious intent a foot into the backend door.

Hmm, that's an interesting observation Russell. Let me have a think...I see two solutions...

1. Use the $sanitized->pageName() of the author 'display name', e.g. if John Doe, the link will be /authors/john-doe/. The potential problem with this is that in blog-authors.php, we need to get the name (i.e. user name) of the author in order to return their posts. OK, it is still possible to get the user by working it out from their pageName sanitized display name but that is not foolproof. There could be two John Doe's? 

2. Use the user's ID in the link, e.g. /authors/1234/. In a link that's fine but in the URL that's not nice. I'll see if I can use this option but with a 'prettier' URL.

Glad to hear other thoughts! I aim to resolve this quickly.

I remember there was a similar issue with the Blog Profile.

https://processwire.com/talk/topic/1394-blog-profile/page-6

I believe that issue dealt with displaying the admin account name when listing the Authors.

I don't know the details of how your Blog module is setup, however the solution presented for the Blog Profile was pretty nice.

Thanks Charles. It is a similar issue but extends a bit further. In the case you linked to, the poster was only concerned about the admin account. In the case here, it is that as well as any other account really.

Upcoming update: Blog version 2.3.0. (dev)

In relation to the issue about displaying Blog Authors' usernames in their pages URLs/Links, I have updated Blog (dev branch for testing first). If an author's 'display names' (title field in user template) are set, Blog [renderPosts(), postAuthor() and renderAuthors()] will now use and display a $sanitizer->pageName() version of that as URL/Link to that author's posts. E.g., if a Blog author has the display names 'Grace Jones' and a username 'gjones', if using Blog Style 1 or 2, their author URL will be, e.g.:
 
/blog/authors/grace-jones/ rather than the current /blog/authors/gjones/. I have updated the demo files blog-post.php and blog-authors.php to reflect this change (see screenshots below). Inevitably, if you are using these files (or their code), unless you update them to reflect the changes your links will lead to 404s. Apologies for this. However, the benefits of the changes outweigh this inconvenience IMHO. Similarly, if you are using custom code, note that, as stated above, renderPosts(), etc will no longer use an author's username in creating author URL/links. Hence, you will also need to adjust your code (see examples in the above template files if unsure).
 
if a 'display name' is not yet set, there will be no author URL link and a generic 'Author Name' will be displayed as the author's name rather than their username. This should serve as a reminder for the client/developer to make sure a 'display names' is set for each Blog Author.
 
I will soon merge this to Master branch as it is an important update. Please test and let me know if there are any issues, thanks.
 
Screens.

It looks like something went screwy when I tried the update from URL, or somewhere along the line, as I have a second copy of the module installed in a sub-tree of the modules directory, which mirrors my local drive path to the original modules directory. As a result, I think I have some old and some new files in my install location.

So, I just want to manually refresh all the core files without doing a reinstall. Should it be OK to simply delete everything under the blog tree, except the templates directory, which I've customised, and put in a fresh copy of the current dev files/folders?

@Russell - I don't completely follow. Running the module in a sub-directory doesn't seem like a good idea. Delete the sub-directory one. Then update the one in your /site/modules/ directory. If you can wait a few minutes I will be merging the dev and master branches. This way, you can update as normal. If you can't wait, you can also just copy and paste all the latest module files (minus the template files, of course) and paste this in your /site/modules/ProcessBlog/ directory overwriting the older ones.

Btw, note that PW now saves an older copy of your module directory when you update a module (don't know if this only happens when you update from URL or uploading a file in contrast to updating via PW's modules' directory. So, you might see a folder .ProcessBlog - that is a backup of older files when you update.

Edit

Realised I didn't answer you question about deleting Blog Pages. As I had mentioned in a previous post and now updated README to include this (thanks...)

You should NOT delete the main Blog pages post-install(i.e. anything other than Example Tag, Example Category and Example Post) OR (however remote the chance of this is) CHANGE the IDs of these pages (in the database). In order to allow for flexibility, Blog stores and tracks its main pages using their IDs.

@Kongondo - I had a question about the directory structure and upgrade compatibility.

Can I add my own custom fields to the default blog-post template and will it survive future upgrades?

I need to create a second set of tags called Client Location. These tags will have their own folder into which I'll store those tags (pages). If I add this folder to your blog folder structure, will this survive future upgrades?

@Peter,

Since an upgrade doesn't reinstall the module, any custom fields or pages you add post-install should survive.

@Russell - I don't completely follow. Running the module in a sub-directory doesn't seem like a good idea.

I agree, and I didn't put it there. I have no idea how it got created. The older version was in the proper location at this local path :-

/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/maryvalecommunity.com/site/modules/Blog

The newer version was in this local path :-

/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/maryvalecommunity.com/site/modules/Blog/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/maryvalecommunity.com/site/modules/Blog

It's fixed now I think - my live site is still bugged so not 100% sure if something else screwy has happened, but I don't know how it happened in the first place.

That's still a strange path. Blog files should be in /site/modules/ProcessBlog/. E.g. /site/modules/ProcessBlog/ProcessBlog.module. Did you create the 'Blog' folder yourself?

      I often had the need for an overview of all used fields and their contents for a specific page/template while developing new websites without switching to the backend, so I made a small module which lists all the needed information in a readable manner (at least for me):
      Debug Page Fields
      https://github.com/robertweiss/ProcessDebugPageFields
      It adds two new properties to all pages:
      $page->debugFieldValues – returns an object with all (sub-)fields, their labels, fieldtypes and values $page->debugFieldTypes – returns an object with all fieldtypes and their corresponding fields // List all values of a pages $page->debugFieldValues // List a specific field $page->debugFieldValues->fieldname // List all used fieldtypes of a page $page->debugFieldTypes I recommend using it in combination with Tracy Debugger, Ray, Xdebug etc. as it returns an object and is only meant for developing/debugging uses. 
      For now, the fieldtype support includes mostly fieldtypes I use in my projects, but can easily be extended by adding a new FieldtypeFIELDNAME method to the module. I use it with five different client installations (all PW 3.0.*), but of course there might be some (or more) field configurations which are not covered correctly yet.
      Supported fieldtypes
      Button Checkbox Color Combo Datetime Email FieldsetPage * File FontIconPicker Functional Image ImageReference MapMarker Multiplier Mystique Options Page PageIDs PageTitle Radio Repeater * RepeaterMatrix * RockAwesome SeoMaestro Table Text Textarea Textareas Toggle URL * The fields with complete subfield-support also list their corresponding subfields.
      Installation
      Download the zip file at Github or clone the repo into your site/modules directory. If you downloaded the zip file, extract it in your sites/modules directory. In your admin, go to Modules > Refresh, then Modules > New, then click on the Install button for this module. As this is my first ›public‹ module, I hope I did not miss any important things to mention here.

      Wire Mail SMTP

      An extension to the (new) WireMail base class that uses SMTP-transport

      This module integrates EmailMessage, SMTP and SASL php-libraries from Manuel Lemos into ProcessWire. I use this continously evolved libraries for about 10 years now and there was never a reason or occasion not to do so. I use it nearly every day in my office for automated composing and sending personalized messages with attachments, requests for Disposition Notifications, etc. Also I have used it for sending personalized Bulkmails many times.

      The WireMailSmtp module extends the new email-related WireMail base class introduced in ProcessWire 2.4.1 (while this writing, the dev-branch only).
       
      Here are Ryans announcement.



      Current Version 0.6.0
      Changelog: https://github.com/horst-n/WireMailSmtp/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
      get it from the Modules Directory Install and Configure

      Download the module into your site/modules/ directory and install it.

      In the config page you fill in settings for the SMTP server and optionaly the (default) sender, like email address, name and signature.
      You can test the smtp settings directly there. If it says "SUCCESS! SMTP settings appear to work correctly." you are ready to start using it in templates, modules or bootstrap scripts.


      Usage Examples
      The simplest way to use it:
      $numSent = wireMail($to, $from, $subject, $textBody); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody); // or with a default sender emailaddress on config page This will send a plain text message to each recipient.
       
      You may also use the object oriented style:
      $mail = wireMail(); // calling an empty wireMail() returns a wireMail object $mail->to($toEmail, $toName); $mail->from = $yourEmailaddress; // if you don't have set a default sender in config // or if you want to override that $mail->subject($subject); $mail->body($textBody); $numSent = $mail->send(); Or chained, like everywhere in ProcessWire:
      $mail = wireMail(); $numSent = $mail->to($toEmail)->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); Additionaly to the basics there are more options available with WireMailSmtp. The main difference compared to the WireMail BaseClass is the sendSingle option. With it you can set only one To-Recipient but additional CC-Recipients.
      $mail = wireMail(); $mail->sendSingle(true)->to($toEmail, $toName)->cc(array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com')); $numSent = $mail->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); The same as function call with options array:
      $options = array( 'sendSingle' => true, 'cc' => array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com') ); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody, $options); There are methods to your disposal to check if you have the right WireMail-Class and if the SMTP-settings are working:
      $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { // Uups, wrong WireMail-Class: do something to inform the user and quit echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; return; } if(!$mail->testConnection()) { // Connection not working: echo "<p>Couldn't connect to the SMTP server. Please check the {$mail->className} modules config settings!</p>"; return; }  
      A MORE ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD!
      You can add some debug code into a template file and call a page with it:
      $to = array('me@example.com'); $subject = 'Wiremail-SMTP Test ' . date('H:i:s') . ' äöü ÄÖÜ ß'; $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; } else { $mail->from = '--INSERT YOUR SENDER ADDRESS HERE --'; // <--- !!!! $mail->to($to); $mail->subject($subject); $mail->sendSingle(true); $mail->body("Titel\n\ntext text TEXT text text\n"); $mail->bodyHTML("<h1>Titel</h1><p>text text <strong>TEXT</strong> text text</p>"); $dump = $mail->debugSend(1); } So, in short, instead of using $mail->send(), use $mail->debugSend(1) to get output on a frontend testpage.
      The output is PRE formatted and contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection, like this one:
       
      Following are a ...


      List of all options and features


      testConnection () - returns true on success, false on failures


      sendSingle ( true | false ) - default is false

      sendBulk ( true | false ) - default is false, Set this to true if you have lots of recipients (50+)


      to ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      cc ($recipients) - only available with mode sendSingle, one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      bcc ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

       
      from = 'person@example.com' - emailaddress, can be set in module config (called Sender Emailaddress) but it can be overwritten here

      fromName = 'Name Surname' - optional, can be set in module config (called Sender Name) but it can be overwritten here


      priority (3) - 1 = Highest | 2 = High | 3 = Normal | 4 = Low | 5 = Lowest

      dispositionNotification () or notification () - request a Disposition Notification


      subject ($subject) - subject of the message

      body ($textBody) - use this one alone to create and send plainText emailmessages

      bodyHTML ($htmlBody) - use this to create a Multipart Alternative Emailmessage (containing a HTML-Part and a Plaintext-Part as fallback)

      addSignature ( true | false ) - the default-behave is selectable in config screen, this can be overridden here
      (only available if a signature is defined in the config screen)

      attachment ($filename, $alternativeBasename = "") - add attachment file, optionally alternative basename


      send () - send the message(s) and return number of successful sent messages


      debugSend(1) - returns and / or outputs a (pre formatted) dump that contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection. (See above the example code under ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD for further instructions!)


      getResult () - returns a dump (array) with all recipients (to, cc, bcc) and settings you have selected with the message, the message subject and body, and lists of successfull addresses and failed addresses,


      logActivity ($logmessage) - you may log success if you want

      logError ($logmessage) - you may log warnings, too. - Errors are logged automaticaly
       
       
      useSentLog (true | false) - intended for usage with e.g. third party newsletter modules - tells the send() method to make usage of the sentLog-methods - the following three sentLog methods are hookable, e.g. if you don't want log into files you may provide your own storage, or add additional functionality here

      sentLogReset ()  - starts a new LogSession - Best usage would be interactively once when setting up a new Newsletter

      sentLogGet ()  - is called automaticly within the send() method - returns an array containing all previously used emailaddresses

      sentLogAdd ($emailaddress)  - is called automaticly within the send() method

      Food Allergens Module
      A simple List of Food Allergens
      My needs were to provide a simple list of food allergens for our clients with restaurant related activity.
      The idea was to simply output the list (to speed up the data entry) without leaving the food menu editing, eg. opening another page in new tab or window.
      This isn't a perfect solution, but it works fine for my needs and I decided to share the base idea.
      This could also be easily used to show little notes or short "vademecum", not only for the list of food allergens.
      ---
      Main features
      The basis
      All moves from a short editing of the module in this tutorial: How to create custom admin pages by @bernhard
      First of all it creates an empty admin page, with a dedicated permission to let safe-user to see it (this permission has to be created as a new ones, manually or by the module).
      Once the page is created, I have hooked its behaviour into the ready.php, to show the content (basically a list).
      A step further
      With the tips of  @bernhard, @Soma (and many others), see here , the magic happens. 
      The new page will be shown as a panel, so editors will not abandon their data entry to have a quick view to the list.
      A little further
      Why scroll to the top of the page to click a link?
      The next step was to create a sticky button only in the food menu pages.
      Again with a @bernhard tip I moved into the customization of this simple module and the related hook.
      ---
      How to use this module
      After installed, it creates the page /admin/page/allergens/ and the module is to be setted up. The first field is a CKEditor with multi-language. This is the place where to write the informations that will be shown into the page. The next field is a simply text-area where to place a bit of JS that will be appended to the markup of the text (omit the 'script' tags). I also putted a checkbox with a silly statement: this to think at least twice on the safety of the written JS. Now comes the first way to display the link to the page
      Field Note with Link. Enable and save it. The module will display a new row with 4 selects (1 standard and 3 ASM):
      View mode (to show the page as Panel or as Modal PopUp); Templates to select: select one or more and save before proceed, so the  asm-select of the pages will be populated showing all the pages of the selected templates. Pages to select: also here select at least one and save before proceed to populate the asm-select for fields only with the ones that belong to the selected pages. Select the fields where to place the note and save again. That's all: now you will find into the notes of the selected fields the link "See the List of Allergens".
      At the same way, the option for the sticky button, but with a plus
      The field select is obviously unnecessary, but you could play with the last row: the inline styles to fix your sticky button where you like. Here you could set the sticky position of the <div> and the absolute ones of the <a>.

      Video Explanation
      In these screencasts you could see a custom JS that show a "copy" button near a "hanna-code" call.
      This because I've set a specific one for each allergen to show up a tooltip in the front end.

      Registrazione #33.mp4  

      Registrazione #34.mp4 ---
      Last but not the least
      Actually it works fine for my needs, even if it's much improvable: I'm working on the permissions creation, the uninstall section, a separate configs and defaults and how to include the hook into the module leaving free the ready.php. According to a simpler uninstall. Also I would make the link text as a dynamic text field, so it will be more flexible.
      I always learn a lot here, so I would share my code for whom it could be interested.
      I removed the hanna code references, but I provide you the html list of the allergens, English and Italian too, so you can paste them into the "source" of the CKEditor field to have a ready to use module.
      Obviously you are free to modify the code as per your needs.
      Please, keep in mind that I'm not a pro coder and I beg your pardon for my verbosity (speaking and coding). 😉
      I hope be helpful or for inspiration.

      This module is sort of an upgrade to my earlier ImageToMarkdown module, and might be useful to anyone working with Markdown in ProcessWire.
      Copy Markdown
      Adds icons to images and files that allow you to copy a Markdown string to the clipboard. When you click the icon a message at the top left of the screen notifies you that the copying has occurred.
      Screencast

      Note: in the screencast an EasyMDE inputfield is used to preview the Markdown. It's not required to use EasyMDE - an ordinary textarea field could be used.
      Usage: Images
      When you hover on an item in an Images field an asterisk icon appears on the thumbnail. Click the icon to copy an image Markdown string to clipboard. If the "Description" field is populated it is used as the alt text.
      You can also open the "Variations" modal for an image and click the asterisk icon to copy an image Markdown string for an individual variation.
      Usage: Files
      When you hover on an item in a Files field an asterisk icon appears next to the filename. Click the icon to copy a link Markdown string to the clipboard. If the "Description" field is populated it is used as the link text, otherwise the filename is used.

      I've realized that I've been jumping back and forth between the PW API docs and the source code for site modules far too much. The idea to hold all necessary documentation locally in one place has occurred to me before, but getting PHPDocumentor et al set up and running reliably (and producing readable output) as always been too much of a hassle. Today I was asked how I find the right hooks and their arguments, and that inspired me to finally get my backside down on the chair and whip something up, namely the
      Module Api Doc Viewer
      ProcessModuleApiDoc
      It lets you browse the inline documentation and public (optionally also protected) class/method/property information for all modules, core classes and template files in the ProcessWire instance. The documentation is generated on the fly, so you don't have to remember to update your docs whenever you update a module.
      The module is quite fresh, so expect some bugs there. Behind the scenes it uses PHP-Parser together with a custom class that extracts the information I needed, and the core TextformatterMarkdownExtra module for rendering the description part in the phpdoc style comments.
      This is not a replacement / competitor to the API Viewer included in the commercial ProDevTools package. There is quite some information included in the inline documentation that my module can't (and won't) parse, but which makes up parts of the official ProcessWire API docs.
      This, instead, is a kind of Swiss army knife to view PHPDoc style information and get a quick class or function reference.
      If you feel daring and want to give it a spin, or if you just want to read a bit more, visit the module's GitHub repository.
      This is the overview page under "Setup" -> "Module API Docs":

      And this is what the documentation for an individual class looks like:

      The core module documentation can of course be found online, but it didn't make sense not to include them.
      Let me know what you think!
