Module: Blog

Recommended Posts

Hi Kongondo,

Firstly, thank you for creating this module!

We have just installed the latest version of your module "Processblog" v2.4.5 on "Processwire" version 3.0.148 and PHP v5.6 (maybe this needs updating).

A couple of layout styles were tested with and without the demo templates, but the same fatal error persisted when attempting to access the "authors" tab :-

"Fatal Error:     Fatal Error: Call to a member function size() on boolean (line 1686 of Processblog.Module)"

Here is line 1685 of Processblog.Module

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

However, with exactly the same setup, but using "Processblog" version 2.4.2 it worked perfectly.

This version had a slightly different logic to achieve the same result :-

" $authorPhoto = count($author->blog_images) ?"

Once this was updated in your latest version it worked.

Hopefully, this may help anyone who may encounter the same issue?

Kind regards,

Hackasacka

Yes, thanks! This has been reported before but I've not yet had time to commit to the repo. Here's the previous post with the recommended fix 😄

In my case the

Warning: Illegal offset type in /var/www/html/site/modules/ProcessBlog/ProcessBlog.module on line 917
Warning: Illegal offset type in /var/www/html/site/modules/ProcessBlog/ProcessBlog.module on line 918

messages were probably caused by the page()->outputFormatting setting being "Off", and were fixed by casting (string) on the array keys:

915		$list = array(
916			(string) $posts->title => array('published' => $qn['blog-post'], 'unpublished' => $qn['unpublished'] ),
917			(string) $comments->title => array('approved' =>  $numApproved, 'pending' => $numPending, 'spam' => $numSpam ), $categories->title . ' & ' . $tags->title => array('categories' => $qn['blog-category'], 'tags' => $qn['blog-tag'] ),
918		);

Hi @kongondo

Firstly, thanks for the module. Unfortunately, I have searched everywhere for an explanation of how to display a blog image, but cannot find it anywhere. I am using the renderPosts function as follows:

$blog->renderPosts("limit={$limit}",false,array('post_large_image' => 1));

 

This does not render the image. There's some talk about adding the "featured" tag to an image, but I can find no way to do that; there's no option to add tags to images in ProcessWire>ProcessBlog. I've already uploaded the image in the "images" section of the actual post, but it's not displaying no matter what I do. Documentation makes no reference to images. Please help!

Sorry about this. The documentation can be improved (even completed! 😃).

You need to add the tag to an image in your blog post. These are the images in the blog_images field in a blog-post template. 

See attached (zipped) animated GIF (it seems I cannot upload GIFs anymore).

Thanks @kongondo

Unfortunately, for some reason the 'tags' text field never shows up, see attached. Only description is present. What am I doing wrong?

  1. Edit the field blog_images
  2. Go to its Details Tab
  3. Scroll down to the bottom to the Use Tags section.
  4. Enable tags using one of options 2 - 4. I normally use 2 (user enters tags by text input).
  5. Save

@kongondo sorry one more question; is there a way to resize the image proportionally instead of hard-setting the width/height? I note that now the width is proportional automatically, but the height is not and is always a fixed value by default. I tried playing around with the settings, but no way to make the height resize proportionally with the width of the image automatically...

I am afraid I don't understand the question. Do you mean editing an image, e.g. your 'welcome-waving' image by clicking on Edit, then the crop icon?

Which settings are these?

Maybe send me a screenshot of what you are trying to do? Thanks.

So here's the issue. Let's say I have an image that has dimensions of 1113px × 626px. When I use the renderPost function with featured image tag, the image displays properly but the image renders at 570px width but retains the 626 height (i.e. the height is not adjusted proportionally to the new width). How can I make it so that the image renders at ~326px height (which is the proportional height it should be at)? Currently, if I manually set post_small_image_height or post_large_image_height then it works, but not all my images are the same dimensions so it looks weird for other images that are differently sized.

Actually I seem to have figured out by setting the width to be a fixed amount, the height gets adjusted. So when I fix post_small_image_width to 570, it auto adjusts the height to 326, which is what I wanted. Sorry for the confusion!

Exactly what you caught me typing, i.e., if you declare one and not the other, the other value gets automatically and proportionately resized. So, if you declare height, width will be auto and vice versa. If you set both height and width and have this setting 'post_small_image_size' => true, then you will get exact dimensions. Currently this is only explained in the code, e.g. here but the language can be improved. For instance, the 'no manipulation' is not exactly true as that dimension will be autosized..

Hi @kongondo

Hope you're doing well, can't believe it's been almost another year! I have another question for you that I'm hoping you can help with. I am trying to format my blog archive widget such that the names of the months only appear once in the list, with the corresponding years associated with each month displayed, for example, something like this:

 

image.png.eba7fce80fd1d2cb3be69040a4d71b32.png

 

Unfortunately, the actual output is like this (notice the repeating "September" for both 2020 and 2021):

image.png.6be74b88eaa534be55b467ac6c8cc537.png

I've been trying to edit the renderArchives() function within MarkupBlog.module trying to get it to determine the months first, before the years, but that seems impossible as the array passed to the main function is sorted by years. Any ideas how to make it work, so that the name of the month doesn't repeat twice, and instead looks like the first screenshot? I've tried various functions to determine the unique months in every year using array_column and array_merge to then not repeat the name of the month, but after many hours of no success, I'm really hoping you can point me in the right direction!

Thank you in advance!

This is a completely new install with ProcessWire 3.0.184 and ProcessBlog 2.4.5 and SchedulePages 1.2.2

I installed Lazy Cron successfully.
I installed SchedulePages successfully.
I installed ProcessBlog successfully.

Then chose the settings for ProcessBlog:
Select a Blog URL Style = Style 3
Scheduled auto-publish/unpublish = yes ( The module SchedulePages is installed )
Install commenting feature = yes

Install template files = Blank template files
Install demo css = no
Install demo javascript = no
Tqags for blog templates = -blog
Use RTE in Quick Post = yes
> click Submit
Success

> go to menu Blog
Finalize your blog installation
no changes
> click Run Install Wizard
Error shown below

Did I miss a step or do I need to do surgery on the SchedulePages.module ?

Hi @Orodreth,

I merged your thread here thinking that this had to do with the Blog module. Now that I look at it closely, it looks like it is a problem with SchedulePages. I have never seen this error before but I have also not touched the module in a long time. Maybe something changed in ProcessWire since. Are you able to do do some tests so we can try to get to the bottom of this? E.g.:

  1. Install SchedulePages without the blog module. Do you get errors?
  2. Install SchedulePages in an earlier version of ProcessWire, maybe 3.0.16x. Do you find issues?

I am afraid I am currently short of time so cannot investigate further until the net we cast is a little bit narrower, hence above suggested investigations. Thanks.

Hi @ctech,

Sorry for the very late response. Maybe something like below to get you started? I have deliberately left in debug code so you see what's going on. I am also using findRaw() for efficiency. You can go a bit crazy with limit if using findRaw() 😁.

<?php namespace ProcessWire;
// we only need this one field
$fields = ['blog_date'];
// get some posts, sorted by date, ascending
$posts = $pages->findRaw("template=blog-post, sort=-blog_date, limit=25", $fields);
bd($posts, '$posts at line #' . __LINE__);
$posts2 = [];
// if we got results, format and use them
if (!empty($posts)) {
  // make it clean (not strictly necessary)
	$posts2 = array_column($posts, 'blog_date');
	bd($posts2, '$posts2 at line #' . __LINE__);
	$monthArchives = [];
	foreach ($posts2 as $dateString) {
      	// get the month portion of 'blog_date'
		$month = $datetime->date('F', $dateString);
		// get year portion of 'blog_date'
      	$year = $datetime->date('Y', $dateString);
		bd($month, '$month at line #' . __LINE__);
		bd($year, '$year at line #' . __LINE__);
		$monthArchives[$month][$year] = $year; // @TODO: DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU WANT THE VALUE TO BE HERE
	}
	bd($monthArchives, '$monthArchives at line #' . __LINE__);
}

// do something with $posts2
if (!empty($posts2)) {
	// code
}

Hope this helps 😀.

Thank you for maintaining support on ProcessBlog. I know its a little older now and you have a zillion other projects to do but ProcessBlog is a good module!

ProcessWire 3.0.184 and ProcessBlog 2.4.5 and SchedulePages 1.2.2
( I will also try PW 3.0.164 and 3.0.148 which are the only two prior tags I can see on github and install ProcessBlog and report back on those two tests at end of this post)


If I uninstall ProcessBlog and uninstall SchedulePages... then install SchedulePages there are no errors and I create a new test page without any errors.
Then, uninstalling SchedulePages, and install ProcessBlog without SchedulePages, the initial install works fine, but when I go to menu > Blog and click Finalize Install... a bunch of errors appear:

UPDATE
----------------------------------------------
> Installed ProcessWire 3.0.148 and ProcessBlog 2.4.5 without SchedulePages, and saw no errors.
> Installed ProcessWire 3.0.164 and ProcessBlog 2.4.5 without SchedulePages, and saw no errors.
> Installed ProcessWire 3.0.184 and ProcessBlog 2.4.5 without SchedulePages (completely new install just in case) and same errors above with blog-author

I reviewed the ProcessWire Release Notes and could only find one instance between 3.0.166 and 3.0.184 where something changed with "roles", in case thats related to the blog-author error

Quote

Release 3.0.184

Users

Added support for user-view-[role] permissions for cases where people may be implementing a /site/templates/user.php (or related) template file.

New $users->setAdminThemeByRole($adminTheme, $role); method sets all users having given role to use given admin theme. Details

Added Lister bookmarks support to users editor (ProcessUser) per request.

Dear All, 

I've just created a new website and installed the MarkupBlog module, but I can't manage to make it work.

After clearing all the setting, when I do run the Install Wizard this error pops up:

Can’t save page 0: /blog-author: It has no parent assigned

And I'm unable to go past it. 

Do you have any insight about how I could make it work and fix this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @lele_ballack,

I've merged your thread to Blog's support forum. This bug has been reported in the issue tracker. I just never got time to investigate it. I'll find some time this week to fix this. Sorry for the inconvenience everyone. Thanks.

Update: Blog 2.4.6

Changelog

  1. Fixed fatal error when installing Blog (thanks @Orodreth , @lele_ballack and @Sascha Nos for reporting.
  2. Various other minor fixes.

Please test and let me know. Thanks.

PS: Not sure when it will propagate in the modules directory. I couldn't log in to force a re-trigger as I seem to have forgotten my password for that area 😆.

After releasing Padloper 2, I'd like to give this (and others) module some attention. Any ideas on how it could be improved (UI, etc), please note them here. Thanks.

Thanks for the 2.4.6 update !!!

Some ideas. If these can be accomplished with the existing framework, let me know. 
I will modify this list as the muse strikes.

1) Multiple level tag categories (tags as child of child tag?)
tags (parent page?)
tag (child of parent page) = fruits
tag (child of fruits tag) = apple
tag (child of parent page) = vegetables
tag (child of vegetables tag) = carrot

2) Role blog-reader functionality
mark a blog post as "read"

3) Role blog-reader functionality
mark a blog post as a "favorite"

      PageMjmlToHtml
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/PageMjmlToHtml
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/page-mjml-to-html/ (pending approval)
      A module allowing you to write your Processwire template using MJML and get a converted HTML output using MJML API.
      This is considered to be in alpha and as such needs some testing before being used in production!

      About
      Created by Mailjet, MJML is a markup language making it a breeze to create newsletters displayed consistently across all email clients.
      Write your template using MJML combined with Processwire’s API and this module will automatically convert your code into a working newsletter thanks to their free-to-use Rest API.
      Prerequisite
      For this module to work you will need to get an API key and paste it in the module’s configuration.
      Usage
      Once your credentials are validated, select the template(s) in which you’re using the MJML syntax, save and go visualize your page(s) to see if everything’s good. You will either get error/warning messages or your email properly formatted and ready-to-go.
      From there you can copy/paste the raw generated code in an external mailing service or distribute your newsletter using ProMailer.
      Features
      The MJML output is cached to avoid repetitive API calls Not cached if there are errors/warnings Cleared if the page is saved Cleared if the template file has been modified A simple (dumb?) code viewer highlights lines with errors/warnings A button is added to quickly copy the raw code of the generated newsletter Not added if the page is rendered outside of a PageView Only visible to users with the page’s edit permission A shortcut is also added under “View” in the edit page to open the raw code in a new tab Multi-languages support
      Notes
      The code viewer is only shown to superusers. If there’s an error the page will display:
      Only its title for guests Its title and a message inviting to contact the administrator for editors If you are using the markup regions output strategy, it might be best to not append files to preserve your MJML markup before calling the MJML API. This option is available in the module’s settings.

      Hi guys!
      I'm a bit anxious because this is the first module I present! (beta modulo) But I will finally be able to share something with the community too! :)
      This is a BETA version of the PayPal payment system called: PayPal Commerce Platform.
      It is an advanced system (Business Pro account is needed) that brings various benefits in terms of fees and above all integrates direct payment with credit/debit cards. 
      The module integrates with Padloper 0.0.2, which is the current installation I'm using.
      This system integrates the classic PayPal buy button, the alternative or local payment method and the new payment system: credit/debit cards that doesn't go through the PayPal account. It is a Stripe-style payment, it connects directly with the bank and integrates 3D security validation.
      I say that it is a BETA because this module currently only works with Sandbox account, to put it live you need to change API url manually (manually for the moment).
      Because this module is not ready for live:
      I would like to have your opinion on how I built the module (is the first one I do). I don't want to share something that is not fish but I need a comparison with someone more experienced than me, for be sure that this is the best way to code the module.
      If you want to try this I created a git, you will find all the instructions for installation and correct operation. (Git has a MIT licensed)
      https://github.com/MarcooRo/processwire-PayPal-Commerce-Platform I hope I did something that you guys can like :)

      (once again I was surprised to see a work of mine pop up in the newsletter, this time without even listing the module on PW modules website 😅. Thx @teppo !)
      FieldtypeQRCode
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      A simple fieldtype generating a QR Code from the public URL of the page, and more.
      Using the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase.

      Options
      In the field’s Details tab you can change between .gif or .svg formats. If you select .svg you will have the option to directly output the markup instead of a base64 image. SVG is the default.
      You can also change what is used to generate the QR code and even have several sources. The accepted sources (separated by a comma) are: httpUrl, editUrl, or the name of any text/URL/file/image field.
      If LanguageSupport is installed the compatible sources (httpUrl, text field, ...) will return as many QR codes as there are languages. Note however that when outputting on the front-end, only the languages visible to the user will be generated.
      Formatting
      Unformatted value
      When using $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field") it returns an array with the following structure:
      [ [ "label" => string, // label used in the admin "qr" => string, // the qrcode image "source" => string, // the source, as defined in the configuration "text" => string // and the text used to generate the qrcode ], ... ] Formatted value
      The formatted value is an <img>/<svg> (or several right next to each other). There is no other markup.
      Should you need the same markup as in the admin you could use:
      $field = $fields->get("qrcode_field"); $field->type->markupValue($page, $field, $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field")); But it’s a bit cumbersome, plus you need to import the FieldtypeQRCode's css/js. Best is to make your own markup using the unformatted value.
      Static QR code generator
      You can call FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCode to generate any QR code you want. Its arguments are:
      string $text bool $svg Generate the QR code as svg instead of gif ? (default=true) bool $markup If svg, output its markup instead of a base64 ? (default=false) Hooks
      Please have a look at the source code for more details about the hookable functions.
      Examples
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $page = $event->arguments("page"); $event->return = $page->title; // or could be: $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCodes", function($event) { $qrcodes = $event->return; // keep everything except the QR codes generated from editUrl foreach($qrcodes as $key => &$qrcode) { if($qrcode["source"] === "editUrl") { unset($qrcodes[$key]); } } unset($qrcode); $event->return = $qrcodes; })

      AppApiFile adds the /file endpoint to the AppApi routes definition. Makes it possible to query files via the api. 
      This module relies on the base module AppApi, which must be installed before AppApiFile can do its work.
      Features
      You can access all files that are uploaded at any ProcessWire page. Call api/file/route/in/pagetree?file=test.jpg to access a page via its route in the page tree. Alternatively you can call api/file/4242?file=test.jpg (e.g.,) to access a page by its id. The module will make sure that the page is accessible by the active user.
      The GET-param "file" defines the basename of the file which you want to get.
      The following GET-params (optional) can be used to manipulate an image:
      width height maxwidth maxheight cropX cropY Use GET-Param format=base64 to receive the file in base64 format.

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.
