Page save() method dying without output?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Im a bit confused by an issue I have come across today.

I have a module which connects to a third party (once an hour using LazyCron), parses a publicly available XML file, turns it into useable information which I then use the API to save as PW Pages.

On the whole this has been working great however today I noticed that it kept failing on one of the imports.

After doing some investigation I realised its appears to be dying at the save page stage.

From the documentation $page-save() should return either True/False, so I thought I would update the code to reflect this while debugging.

$this->log(1);
$bool = $p->save();
if($bool){
  $this->log('Saved successfully');
} else {
  $this->log('Fail to save');
}
$this->log(2);

However the script only gets to the save() part and then appears to terminate. Then when checking the error log the latest entry is always just '1'

Any ideas as i'm a tad confused why I at least don't get a response of some kind?

Not sure, but I would first of all look at the XML file. Has anything changed recently? What happens if you "manually" grab the XML, and update/create page(s)?

Thanks for the reply but I think I have sussed it, not sure why it was never an issue up to this point right enough.

I updated my code from above to try:

$this->log(1);
try {
     $p->save();
} catch (\Exception $e) {
     $this->log($e);
}
$this->log(2);

Which gave me an error mentioning using $p->setOutputFormatting();

So I updated to

$this->log(1);
try {
     $p->setOutputFormatting(false);
     $p->save();
} catch (\Exception $e) {
     $this->log($e);
}
$this->log(2);

Which appears to have fixed the issue.

:)

      From my last post, I was given a good idea on how to count the repeater items, and it worked wonderfully. I got my code working well and the columns (based on the count) all work well as well. Now, I have a head scratcher on my hands. 
      <?php $buttonsIncluded = $page->special_custom_buttons->find('special_custom_buttons_include=1'); $buttonsIncludedCount = count($buttonsIncluded); $buttonsIncludedCountAdditional = $buttonsIncludedCount +1; echo $buttonsIncludedCount; ?> <div class="row"> <?php foreach($buttonsIncluded as $button): ?> <?php if($button->custom_buttons_include): ?> <?php if($buttonsIncludedCountAdditional == 2): ?> <div class="col-6"> <a href=""><?php echo $button->custom_buttons_text; ?></a> </div> <?php elseif($buttonsIncludedCountAdditional == 3): ?> <div class="col-4"> <a href=""><?php echo $button->custom_buttons_text; ?></a> </div> <?php elseif($buttonsIncludedCountAdditional == 4): ?> <div class="col-3"> <a href=""><?php echo $button->custom_buttons_text; ?></a> </div> <?php endif; ?> <?php endif; ?> <?php endforeach; ?> </div> All of this is included in a larger foreach statement that is pulling in other data (like body copy etc etc) from a Page Table field. As you can see in my code above, I am adding "1" to the count, so I can have space in the grid layout for a new button.
      So, right now: it looks something like: 
      [repeater button] [repeater button] [repeater button] [space for new button] What I really need to do is to pull in the button from the Page Table and add it into the new space so it looks like:
      [repeater button] [repeater button] [repeater button] [button from Page Table] Is this even possible todo, or is there a better way to go about this? 
       
      *Edit*
      So, I really just overlooked something quite easy here. Since the grid is based on 12 columns, I could just take 12 and divide by $buttonsIncludedCountAdditional which would give me the remaining col width to use outside the foreach loop. I was trying to make this too complicated.

      Is it possible to use count() to return a number of repeater items don't have a checkbox checked? In my current set up, I have a repeater on the page "dev_repeater" with a checkbox called "dev_repeater_exclude". I need to get a count of the current items that do not have it checked so I can pass it to my css grid to alter the column width.

      Hi all,
      I have a small project which need to get records from Immowelt.de through API.  These records must be on specific user who has entered them. I find the documentation of this API but i don't find something about such selection of user related records. All parameters are for all records in immowelt.de database without user related selection.

      Anyone with experience with this Immowelt.de API?

      Pages At Bottom
      Keeps selected pages at the bottom of their siblings.
      A "bottom page" will stay at the bottom even if it is drag-sorted to a different location or another page is drag-sorted below it (after Page List is refreshed the bottom page will still be at the bottom).
      Newly added sibling pages will not appear below a bottom page.
      The module also prevents the API methods $pages->sort() and $pages->insertAfter() from affecting the position of bottom pages.
      Note: the module only works when the sort setting for children on the parent page/template is "Manual drag-n-drop".
      Why?
      Because you want some pages to always be at the bottom of their siblings for one reason or another. And someone requested it. 🙂
      Usage
      Install the Pages At Bottom module.
      Select one or more pages to keep at the bottom of their siblings. If you select more than one bottom page per parent then their sort order in the page list will be the same as the sort order in the module config.
