How can I change the category name on the bottom. I've installed 2.3.0., the changed names show up correctly but only on the bottom of the message the name didn't change. 

I've included an image

@toothpaste, until I update the Blog docs, it's all here in post #207. What you want is to pass 'post_categories_text' as part of an array (e.g. $options) as the third argument in renderPosts(). Here's a quick one line example - you would probably do it differently depending on your needs, e.g. create the array with all your options first then pass it to renderPosts(). We replace 'Categories: ' with 'Groups: '

echo $modules->get('MarkupBlog')->renderPosts($pages->get('/blog/posts/material-design/'), '', array('post_categories_text'=>'Groups: '));

Thank you Kongondo!

By the way. Your tutorials on Kongondo.com are very useful. Even I can understand:-)

I've added a field called Content_Type to the Blog Post template. I tag *some* posts with as Content_Type=Studio Watch to differentiate them from "regular" bog posts.

There's nothing special about these pages. I simply use the Blog as a central publishing platform but pages marked Content_Type=Studio Watch are special and pulled onto a stand alone section of the site.

Here's how the field looks in the Blog_Post template.

post-1166-0-60360500-1416949775_thumb.pn

Is there a way on the Blog Posts page (front end) to filter out any posts marked with this tag/category.

OR

Maybe I'm trying to do something here which will get me in knots. 

These particular pages shouldn't be listed in the front end under Posts, Categories, Tags, Comments, Authors or Archives.

Hmmm, perhaps I need to not use the blog for this particular task. What do you think?

Btw, if all you are using the field 'Content_Type' for is to differentiate those Blog Posts from other Posts, remember you can also use a checkbox.  A checked checkbox could denote 'special' posts. Alternatively, if you still want to use the page field 'Content_Type', unless there are other special tags, there is no need for that field to be a Multiple Page field.

There are a number of options. One that would work right across the board (but may not be easy/possible for your editors?) is, instead of adding the extra 'Content_Type' field, just set the page status of your 'special' Posts to 'hidden'. They won't show up in Posts, Tags, Categories, Archives and Authors pages. For Comments and Recent Comments and also to show them in your stand-alone section of the site you would need to do something like below...

Show only special posts in stand-alone section

//find only hidden posts
//$posts = $pages->find("template=blog-post, status>1024");//similar to below but less readable
$posts = $pages->find("template=blog-post, status>".Page::statusHidden);
echo $modules->get('MarkupBlog')->renderPosts($posts);

Remove hidden (special) posts from the output from the demo blog-comments.php, i.e. /blog/comments/

//modified code excerpt. See the file blog-comments.php
$comments = $blog->findRecentComments($limit, $start);
foreach($comments as $comment) {
   //remove comments from blog posts with hidden status
   if($comment->page->isHidden()) $comments->remove($comment);
}
$content .= $page->blog_body . $blog->renderComments($comments, $limit);

Remove special posts from the Recent Comments in the right sidebar of the demo blog (blog-side-bar.inc)

//excerpted and modified from blog-side-bar.inc
foreach($comments as $comment) {

        if($comment->page->isHidden()) continue;//ignore comments from hidden posts
        $cite = htmlentities($comment->cite, ENT_QUOTES, "UTF-8");
        $date = $blog->formatDate($comment->created); 
        $out .= "<li><span class='date'>$date</span><br />" . 
                    "<a href='{$comment->page->url}#comment{$comment->id}'>$cite » {$comment->page->title}</a>" . 
                "</li>";
}

Good advice. I was using a PageSelect because in the future I'll have 3 different types of posts all generated from the blogging module.

And thanks for the code samples and explanations too. I've had a bit of a rethink about this. If I'm not using 90% of the Blogs features (Categories, Comments, Athors) etc then I may be better off disconnecting my special posts from the blog. Otherwise I'm trying to adapt and rewire the Blog when it's perfectly suited to it's task and should probably be left alone.

Sorry about the back tracking. Appreciate the examples though.

@Andi, I am not sure I get your question but I think you mean in the modules list PW is listing Blog as 2.2.2 despite having updated to 2.3.0? Maybe PW's module cache didn't clear. In that case, hit the refresh button in PW Module list page. Otherwise, check the other module files, they should all be version 2.3.0.

I built some very basic Gravatar functionality into a bigger (site-specific) module recently - please feel to use it: Gravatar.module gist on Github

Thanks for this. I've saved the code to the desktop, zipped it and loaded as a module and get the following error

Parse Error: syntax error, unexpected 'public' (T_PUBLIC) (line 20 of /Users/peterknight/Sites/EdenWeb/site/modules/Gravatar/Gravatar.module) 

 

Any ideas what the issue is there?

Happy to move this to a different forum or a PM if kongondo wishes.

Most likely a not closed braces } or something.

Seems fine in terms of opening and closed braces.

I don't know much about Modules but having looked at some other code, it seems like the opening statement

public function init() {
		$this->addHook('User::gravatar', $this, 'methodGravatar');
	}

needs to be preceeded by something like this

class MODULENAME extends WireData implements Module {

Not sure if it's my browser or the module or Zurb Foundation auto inserting some accessibility thing.

Does it happen to anyone else using the Blog Module?

Gazley,

I am not sure what version of blog you are using but I know that kongondo made some relatively recent changes to help with clean up of pages when uninstalling. But it sounds like you might need to do some cleanup anyway at this point. 

Did you use the PW backup module to do your backup and restore? Unfortunately there is a bit of a limitation with that backup module at the moment in that it doesn't start with a blank DB when restoring so you can get that situation with existing tables.

At this point I would suggest uninstalling the blog again and then manually removing the DB tables - all that start with "field_blog_*". Also check to make sure there is no entry for the blog module in the "modules" DB table.

Hopefully with a clean start it should install fine.

@Peter,

The select box is coming from the 4th argument of renderNav() $mobile. The default value is 'true'. Used in conjunction with CSS @media queries, the select box provides an easier navigation of your Blog for mobile devices. If you wish not to use it, just set $mobile=false. See below:

@Gazley,

Thanks for trying out Blog. Nothing much to add to what Adrian has said. I can tell that you are using Blog version 2.x.x. As the error shows, it seems you installed Blog, then uninstalled it without first 'cleaning up', then tried to install it again. That's the only way that error could occur based on your explanation... :-)

Let us know if we can help further.. :-)

Hi,

I installed it once and hit the error. I manually uninstalled it and tried again and hit the error. As a result, I reverted to a backup from days ago, before I even downloaded the Blog module. I installed clean and still hit the error presented in my second error listing.

I haven't installed and uninstalled or anything like that. I just hit the error right away.

Well that's strange. Can you please confirm:

  • That you run the 'Cleanup' wizard before uninstalling the module itself?
  • That after uninstall you do not have a field called blog_categories in your install/DB?
  • That the uninstaller finished running - i.e. it did not hang and not complete?
  • Your PW version?

Hi Kongondo,

I've resolved the issue and this was the problem:

xdebug.max_nesting_level=100

I use Xdebug and your installation had originally crashed because the PHP program nesting level had hit this limit. I've no idea why this Xdebug setting should impact on PHP when not debugging but for whatever reason, it was. I extended this to 200 and voila - it installed just fine! :)

I couldn't ever run Cleanup because it never (I presume) got far enough along in the install before it crashed due to the nesting limit. In any event, I reverted to backup (again) with the higher nesting limit and it all functioned perfectly!

Now, all I have to do is learn to use the MarkupBlog module :)

Anyway, thanks for being calm and patient and making this work available. The dashboard and utilities look really great and I'm glad I don't have to code up another half-baked, home-made blog yet again!

Cheers.

Glad you got it sorted. Now that I think about it, this nesting level issue has come up before in respect of installing Blog. 

MarkupBlog docs are on my site here:

I will need to update them soon with the latest changes as shown on post #207 and #244 here in the forums which you might want to read as well.

When i create a user with roles guest and blog-author, as soon they log in to the manager the only thing shown is a continue link, redirecting them to the home page of the site.

How can they create a new blog entry? I do not want to give them superuser privileges.

I'm running PW 2.5.10 dev with ProcessBlog 2.3.0

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      Advantages
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no Javascript or image required.
      Disadvantages
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode.

      Detailed records
      View mode "Detailed records" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records.

      Cached visitor records
      View modes other than "Detailed records" are cached visitor counts which will be collected on a daily basis from the detailed records. This procedure ensures a faster display even with a large number of data records. Another advantage is that the detailed records can be deleted while the cache remains. The cache can be updated manually or automatically in a specified time period. Multiple visits from the same IP address on the same day are counted as a single visitor.

      Upgrade from older versions
      Cached visitor counts is new in version 1.0.8. If you just upgraded from an older version you might expire a delay or even an error 500 if you display cached visitor counts. The reason for this is that the cache has to be created from the records. This can take longer if your database contains many records. Sometimes it might hit the maximally execution time. Don't worry about that and keep reloading the page until the cache is completely created.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).

      Settings
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      IP2Location
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      Dragscroll
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.

      TextformatterTypographer
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.

      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 #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.
