Thanks Kongondo for this great offer! 

I'm currently experimenting with it, I came to the point where I want to change a little bit in the positioning of the blog.
Like placing the Date underneath the post instead of above. But I can't find where I can change those settings? 

Also, the option to show like 200 words and than the text 'view more'. I want to translate this to dutch, but I can neither find this one hehehe.
Can u help me out?

(Dont know what about this, but when i go to PW admin > blog > settings > I can change whatever I want, but it won't safe. It keeps saying the same text which comes by the installation)
I've tested this in Chrome and Safari, same problem. I' on ProcessWire 3.0.132 © 2019

You do that by passing $options to renderPosts(). I can only apologise that I've never completed the documentation for this module. Please have a look at the options here, in the method processPostsOptions(). All the options that can be passed to renderPosts() are there. For instance, 'post_date' => 1,// display post's date: 0=off,1=top(below post-headline),2=bottom(in post-foot)

The string is on this line. Is it not appearing in the translation screen? I've never done translation myself so, I wouldn't know how to help beyond this. If you are still experiencing issues, maybe one of your multilingual members could help out.

You caught a bug! Thanks for reporting. I've fixed it in the latest version (2.4.4). I've updated the module in the modules' directory.

Thanks for your response! You've really helped me out with the string on that line, when my project is finished, I will show it over here!
And I'm glad I found a bug so I could help a bit with this module!

Hi,

New to PW, do anyone use the Blog Module templated as .twig instead of .php?

Hi @kongondo, I'm having an issue with Jumplinks and I haven't had any luck on that support forum so I thought I would try here since I think the issue might be related to the blog plugin. Can you check my posts here and let me know if you've experienced this behavior?

Hi @Ben Sayers,

Sorry for the late response. I have never used Jumplinks before. I have read the posts you link to but cannot think of any reason why the blog module would be the cause of the issue. In addition, @wbmnfktr seems to have successfully tested blog and Jumplinks, so it must be something else in your install. However, in your post you say:

Quote

removed a bunch of old posts, I wanted to redirect them to the main blog page (domain.com/blog/)

What do you mean by removed? Secondly, what 'blog style' did you use on install?

No worries, thanks for getting back to me! To remove the posts, I went to the Blog --> Posts tab in PW, checked the boxes for the posts I wanted to remove, then went to Actions -> Delete. I'm using Blog Style 1. I'm able to redirect any page in the website using Jumplinks unless it has "blog/" in it.

Please confirm this. According to your post here:

it seems your posts are structured as: (domain.com/blog/some-post/). This would make it a Blog Style 2 and not Blog Style 1 which would be structured as: /domain.com/blog/posts/some-post/

Hi @kongondo, I'm loving the work you've done with the blog module allready and am using it to set up a multi language blog. I do have a problem with rendering the blog in the secondary language.

The blog categories and tags are not rendered, I assume this is because they aren't translated yet? 

The blog posts themselves don't appear in the secondary language but still output the content from the primary language.

Do you have any idea what i could change to get the blog to work in my secondary language?

You are right. A massive oversight on my part! I will work on this as soon as I get a bit of time, which might not be soon, I am afraid.

Since posts are just pages, you could just use PW API directly to access each blog field and let PW deal with the fetching of the value in the current language. For instance (rough example):

 

$posts = $pages->find("template=blog-post,limit=20");

$out = "";
foreach($posts as $post) {
    $out .= "<h2>{$post->title}</h2>";
    $out .=  $post->blog_body;
    $thumb = $post->blog_images->first()->width(250);
    $out .= "<img src='{$thumb->url}'>";
    $out .= '<hr>';
}

echo $out;

It's not ideal, but it should get you started, meanwhile.

Hello,

I'm using the blog template by @kongondo (thank you!) and I've been going through and creating my website. I've been trying to work this issue out for a day and I haven't gotten far.

I can't figure out how I can sort the months in descending order as these are not pw pages. The years and the posts are shown in descending order, and I want to have the months in descending order too (June, May, April, etc) . How do I do that? I looked at the function for renderarchives and it's unfortunately beyond me at the moment. Thanks for any help on this! 

Regards,

Jonah

Hi @montero4,

Welcome to the forums and ProcessWire. This seemed like a nice feature to add so I have gone ahead and added it as an option to getArchives(). I'll release over the weekend.

 

PS: I have moved your thread to the blog support forum.

Update: Blog 2.4.5

Changelog

  1. Added new option (see example use below) to MarkupBlog::getArchives() that allows to specify if archive months should be sorted descending (Dec - Jan). Default is ascending (Jan - Dec), thanks to question by @montero4
  2. Fixed bug in template blog-archives.php that caused illegal offset warnings.
Module has been updated in the modules directory.
 
Example usage of new getArchives() option
 
getArchives() now accepts a third parameter as an $options array. If you want archive months to be sorted and rendered in descending order (December - January), you will need to pass this as an option in the $options array and set the value 'descending' to they key 'archives_month_sort_order'. Since this is the third parameter for the method, you will need to pass options for the first and second parameters as well. If you want the default ascending order of months, you don't have to change anything in your code. Just call getArchives() as usual without any parameters.  Otherwise, read on for descending order of months.
 
<?php
$blog = $modules->get("MarkupBlog");
// options: if we want to sort archive months in descending order
$archiveOptions = array('archives_month_sort_order'=>'descending');
// get archives: order months descending
$archives = $blog->getArchives(0, 1, $archiveOptions);
// if you want to render the archives
$content = $blog->renderArchives($archives);// order months descending

Please test and let me know.

Thanks.

Hi  @kongondo ,

it's quite a while I'm planning to use your Blog Module. Now I started my first try, installing version 2.4.5 in PW 3.0.148.
I chose Blog style 3 and installed the demo template files.

When in the Blog dashboard I open the Authors page, I get the Error
"Call to a member function size() on boolean"  in ProcessBlog.module:1686.
Line 1686 is this one:

'<img src ="' . $author->blog_images->first->size(75, 75)->url .'" class="blog_author_image">'  :

What's going wrong?
Thank you
ottogal

Hi @ottogal,

Thanks for catching this. I have a feeling there are other similar gotchas! I'll search for and resolve (if need be) these at a later date. For now, please change line #1685 from:

$authorPhoto = !empty($author->blog_images) ?

to:

$authorPhoto = $author->blog_images->count ?

Thanks.

Hi @kongondo

I've just installed your module (version 2.4.5 in PW 3.0.148). Upon installing I did select blog style 1 or 2, and in both cases I keep getting this warnings above the dashboard:

"Warning: Illegal offset type in ..\site\modules\MarkupBlog\ProcessBlog.module on line 916"
"Warning: Illegal offset type in ..\site\modules\MarkupBlog\ProcessBlog.module on line 917"

that refer to these two lines:

$posts->title => array('published' => $qn['blog-post'], 'unpublished' => $qn['unpublished'] ),
$comments->title => array('approved' =>  $numApproved, 'pending' => $numPending, 'spam' => $numSpam ),

How can I remove those warnings? Is there a quick way to fix it?

Thanks.

I am not seeing those errors in my test site. But I do see some code that could be refactored. Please try the following for now:

Replace this (starting from line # 915)

$list = array(
    $posts->title => array('published' => $qn['blog-post'], 'unpublished' => $qn['unpublished'] ),
    $comments->title => array('approved' =>  $numApproved, 'pending' => $numPending, 'spam' => $numSpam ),
    $categories->title . ' & ' . $tags->title => array('categories' => $qn['blog-category'], 'tags' => $qn['blog-tag'] ),
);

 

With this:

$postsTitle = !empty($posts->title) ? $posts->title : "Posts";
$commentsTitle = !empty($comments->title) ? $comments->title : "Comments";
$categoriesTitle = !empty($categories->title) ? $categories->title : "Categories";
$tagsTitle = !empty($tags->title) ? $tags->title : "Tags";

$list = array(
    $postsTitle => array('published' => $qn['blog-post'], 'unpublished' => $qn['unpublished'] ),
    $commentsTitle => array('approved' =>  $numApproved, 'pending' => $numPending, 'spam' => $numSpam ),
    "{$categoriesTitle} & {$tagsTitle}" => array('categories' => $qn['blog-category'], 'tags' => $qn['blog-tag'] ),
);

Please let me know if it helps.

Thanks.

Thanks @kongondo for your quick reply! 

That worked really well and the warnings disappeared! 

Just noted that there is small bug though after implementing the new code: the comments counter appears now in the dashboard (title and icons only, without any real counting)  even though I chose a blog installation with no comments.

      Hello
      Till now I hacked something with the twig template but it works no more with new PW versions so I look forward to create a module. I am working on a site in multiple languages : French, English, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian. The new posts are entered in any language with a field for language. Till now, I got twig files to get the translations with constants defined for each part of the pages.
      So I'd like to create a module to include theses files added according to the url /fr/en/...
      Have you some observations to do before I begin about the direction to take ?
      Thank you

      Mystique Module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF
      Github repo : https://github.com/trk/Mystique
      Mystique module allow you to create dynamic fields and store dynamic fields data on database by using a config file.
      Requirements
      ProcessWire 3.0 or newer PHP 7.0 or newer FieldtypeMystique InputfieldMystique Installation
      Install the module from the modules directory:
      Via Composer:
      composer require trk/mystique Via git clone:
      cd your-processwire-project-folder/ cd site/modules/ git clone https://github.com/trk/Mystique.git Module in live reaction with your Mystique config file
      This mean if you remove a field from your config file, field will be removed from edit screen. As you see on youtube video.
      Using Mystique with your module or use different configs path, autoload need to be true for modules
      Default configs path is site/templates/configs/, and your config file name need to start with Mystique. and need to end with .php extension.
      Adding custom path not supporting anymore !
      // Add your custom path inside your module class`init` function, didn't tested outside public function init() { $path = __DIR__ . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'configs' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR; Mystique::add($path); } Mystique module will search site/modules/**/configs/Mystique.*.php and site/templates/Mystique.*.php paths for Mystique config files.
      All config files need to return a PHP ARRAY like examples.
      Usage almost same with ProcessWire Inputfield Api, only difference is set and showIf usage like on example.
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : testing-mystique */ return [ 'title' => __('Testing Mystique'), 'fields' => [ 'text_field' => [ 'label' => __('You can use short named types'), 'description' => __('In file showIf working like example'), 'notes' => __('Also you can use $input->set() method'), 'type' => 'text', 'showIf' => [ 'another_text' => "=''" ], 'set' => [ 'showCount' => InputfieldText::showCountChars, 'maxlength' => 255 ], 'attr' => [ 'attr-foo' => 'bar', 'attr-bar' => 'foo' ] ], 'another_text' => [ 'label' => __('Another text field (default type is text)') ] ] ]; Example:
      site/templates/configs/Mystique.seo-fields.php <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : seo-fields */ return [ 'title' => __('Seo fields'), 'fields' => [ 'window_title' => [ 'label' => __('Window title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a window title') ] ], 'navigation_title' => [ 'label' => __('Navigation title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'showIf' => [ 'window_title' => "!=''" ], 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a navigation title') ] ], 'description' => [ 'label' => __('Description for search engines'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXTAREA, 'useLanguages' => true ], 'page_tpye' => [ 'label' => __('Type'), 'type' => Mystique::SELECT, 'options' => [ 'basic' => __('Basic page'), 'gallery' => __('Gallery'), 'blog' => __('Blog') ] ], 'show_on_nav' => [ 'label' => __('Display this page on navigation'), 'type' => Mystique::CHECKBOX ] ] ]; Searching data on Mystique field is limited. Because, Mystique saving data to database in json format. When you make search for Mystique field, operator not important. Operator will be changed with %= operator.
      Search example
      $navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.show_on_nav=1'); $navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.page_tpye=gallery');

      This is a module I made as an experiment a while ago and never got around to releasing publicly. At the time it was prompted by discussions around using Repeater fields for "page builder" purposes, where the depth feature could possibly be used for elements that would be nested inside other elements. I thought it would be useful to enforce some depth rules and translate the depth data into a multi-dimensional array structure.
      I'm not using this module anywhere myself but maybe it's useful to somebody.
      Repeater Depth Helper
      This module does two things relating to Repeater fields that have the "Item depth" option enabled:
      It enforces some depth rules for Repeater fields on save. Those rules are:
      The first item must have a depth of zero. Each item depth must not be more than one greater than previous item depth. It provides a RepeaterPageArray::getDepthStructure helper method that returns a nested depth structure for a Repeater field value.
      Helper method
      The module adds a RepeaterPageArray::getDepthStructure method that returns a multi-dimensional array where the key is the page ID and the value is an array of nested "child" items, or null if there are no nested children.
      Example

      The module doesn't make any assumptions about how you might want to use the depth structure array, but here is a way you might use it to output a nested unordered list.
      // Output a nested unordered list from a depth structure array function outputNestedList($depth_structure, $repeater_items) { $out = "<ul>"; foreach($depth_structure as $page_id => $nested_children) { $out .= "<li>" . $repeater_items->get("id=$page_id")->title; // Go recursive if there are nested children if(is_array($nested_children)) $out .= outputNestedList($nested_children, $repeater_items); $out .= "</li>"; } $out .= "</ul>"; return $out; } $repeater_items = $page->my_repeater; $depth_structure = $repeater_items->getDepthStructure(); echo outputNestedList($depth_structure, $repeater_items);

      Cacheable Placeholders
      This module allows you to have pieces of dynamic content inside cached output. This aims to solve the common problem of having a mostly cacheable site, but with pieces of dynamic output here and there.  Consider this simple example, where you want to output a custom greeting to the current user:
      <h1>Good morning, <?= ucfirst($user->name) ?></h1> This snippet means you can't use the template cache (at least for logged-in users), because each user has a different name. Even if 99% of your output is static, you can only cache the pieces that you know won't include this personal greeting. A more common example would be CSRF tokens for HTML forms - those need to be unique by definition, so you can't cache the form wholesale.
      This module solves this problem by introducing cacheable placeholders - small placeholder tokens that get replaced during every request. The replacement is done inside a Page::render hook so it runs during every request, even if the response is served from the template cache. So you can use something like this:
      <h1>Good morning, {{{greeting}}}</h1> Replacement tokens are defined with a callback function that produces the appropriate output and added to the module through a simple hook:
      // site/ready.php wire()->addHookAfter('CachePlaceholders::getTokens', function (HookEvent $e) { $tokens = $e->return; $tokens['greeting'] = [ 'callback' => function (array $tokenData) { return ucfirst(wire('user')->name); } ]; $e->return = $tokens; }); Tokens can also include parameters that are parsed and passed to the callback function. There are more fully annotated examples and step-by-step instructions in the README on Github!
      Features
      A simple and fast token parser that calls the appropriate callback and runs automatically. Tokens may include multiple named or positional parameters, as well as multi-value parameters. A manual mode that allows you to replace tokens in custom pieces of cached content (useful if you're using the $cache API). Some built-in tokens for common use-cases: CSRF-Tokens, replacing values from superglobals and producing random hexadecimal strings. The token format is completely customizable, all delimiters can be changed to avoid collisions with existing tag parsers or template languages. Links

      This module allows you to integrate hCaptcha bot / spam protection into ProcessWire forms. hCaptcha is a great alternative to Google ReCaptcha, especially if you are in the EU and need to comply with privacy regulations.

      The development of this module is sponsored by schwarzdesign.
      The module is built as an Inputfield, allowing you to integrate it into any ProcessWire form you want. It's primarily intended for frontend forms and can be added to Form Builder forms for automatic spam protection. There's a step-by-step guide for adding the hCaptcha widget to Form Builder forms in the README, as well as instructions for API usage.
      Features
      Inputfield that displays an hCaptcha widget in ProcessWire forms. The inputfield verifies the hCaptcha response upon submission, and adds a field error if it is invalid. All hCaptcha configuration options for the widget (theme, display size etc) can be changed through the inputfield configuration, as well as programmatically. hCaptcha script options can be changed through a hook. Error messages can be translated through ProcessWire's site translations. hCaptcha secret keys and site-keys can be set for each individual inputfield or globally in your config.php. Error codes and failures are logged to help you find configuration errors. Please check the README for setup instructions.
