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.

@kongondo

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/

Sorry, my post on the forum should have said domain.com/blog/posts/some-post/ - I am using blog style #1.

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?

      I am happy to present my new fieldtype FieldtypeImageFromPage. It is made up of 2 modules:
      Fieldtype Image Reference From Another Page is a Fieldtype that stores a reference to a single image from another page. The image can be selected with the associated Inputfield.
      Inputfield Select Image From Page is an Inputfield to select a single image from images on a predefined page and it's children.
      And there also is a helper module that takes care of cleanup tasks.
      This module evolved out of a discussion about my other Module FieldtypeImagePicker.  It caters for use cases where a set of images is being reused multiple times across a site. With this fieldtype these images can be administered through a chosen page. All images uploaded to that page will be available in the inputfield.
      When to use ?
      Let editors choose an image from a set of images that is being used site-wide. Ideal for images that are being re-used across the site.
      Suited for images that are used on multiple pages throughout the site (e.g. icons).
      Other than the native ProcessWire images field, the images here are not stored per page. Only references to images on another page are stored. This has several advantages:
      one central place to organize images when images change, you only have to update them in one place. All references will be updated, too. (Provided the name of the image that has changed stays the same) Features
      Images can be manipulated like native ProcessWire images (resizing, cropping etc.) Image names are fully searchable through the API Accidental image deletion is prevented. When you want to delete an image from one of the pages that hold your site-wide images, the module searches all pages that use that image. If any page contains a reference to the image you are trying to delete, deletion will be prevented. You will get an error message to help you edit those pages and remove references there before you can finally delete the image. How to install and setup
      Download and install this module like any other modules in ProcessWire Create a page in the page tree that will hold your images. This page's template must have an images field Upload some images to the page you created in step 2 Create a new field. As type choose 'Image Reference From Another Page'. Save the field. In 'Details' Tab of the field choose the page you created in step 2 Click Save button Choose the images field name for the field that holds your images (on page template from step 2) Click Save button again Choose whether you want to include child pages of page from step 2 to supply images Add the field to any template You are now ready to use the field View of the inputfield on the page edit screen:

      View of the field settings

      The module can be installed from this github repo. Some more info in the README there, too.
      In my tests it was fairly stable. After receiving your valued feedback, I will eventually add it to the modules directory.
      My ideas for further improvement:
      - add ajax loading of thumbnails
      Happy to hear your feedback!

      Although the PW backend is really intuitive, ever so often my clients need some assistance. Be it they are not so tech savvy or they are not working in the backend often.
      For those cases it is nice to make some help videos available to editors. This is what this module does.
      ProcessHelpVideos Module
      A Process module to display help videos for the ProcessWire CMS. It can be used to make help videos (screencasts) available to content editors.
      This module adds a 'Help Videos" section to the ProcessWire backend. The help videos are accessible through an automatically created page in the Admin page tree. You can add your help videos as pages in the page tree. The module adds a hidden page to the page tree that acts as parent page for the help video pages. All necessary fields and templates will be installed automatically. If there are already a CKEditor field and/or a file field for mp4 files installed in the system, the module will use those. Otherwise it will create the necessary fields. Also the necessary templates for the parent help videos page and it's children are created on module install. The module installs a permission process-helpvideos. Every user role that should have access to the help video section, needs this permission. I use the help video approach on quite a few production sites. It is stable so far and well received by site owners/editors. Up until now I installed required fields, templates and pages manually and then added the module. Now I added all this logic to the install method of the module and it should be ready to share.
      The module and further description on how to use it is available on github: https://github.com/gebeer/ProcessHelpVideos
      If you like to give it a try, I am happy to receive your comments/suggestions here.

      A module created in response to the topic here:
      Page List Select Multiple Quickly
      Modifies PageListSelectMultiple to allow you to select multiple pages without the tree closing every time you select a page.
      The screencast says it all:

      Hello all,
      sharing my new module FieldtypeImagePicker. It provides a configurable input field for choosing any type of image from a predefined folder.
      The need for it came up because a client had a custom SVG icon set and I wanted the editors to be able to choose an icon in the page editor.
      It can also be used to offer a choice of images that are used site-wide without having to upload them to individual pages.
      There are no image manipulation methods like with the native PW image field.
      Module and full description can be found on github https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImagePicker
      Kudos to @Martijn Geerts. I used his module FieldTypeSelectFile as a base to build upon.
      Here's how the input field looks like in the page editor:

      Hope it can be of use to someone.
      If you like to give it a try, I'm happy to hear your comments or suggestions for improvement. Eventually this will go in the module directory soon, too.

      @Sergio asked about the pdf creation process in the showcase thread about my 360° feedback/survey tool and so I went ahead and set my little pdf helper module to public.
