Hi.

I want select pages where now between date and end_date or now bigger than date and end_date is empty.

I have five tried variants:


$start = strtotime(date('Y-m-d') . " 00:00:00");
$results = $page->children("foo=(date<$start,date_end=''),bar=(date<$start,date_end>=$start),sort=-date,limit=12");


$start = strtotime(date('Y-m-d') . " 00:00:00");
$results = $page->children("date<$start,(date_end='',date_end>=$start),sort=-date,limit=12");


$start = strtotime(date('Y-m-d') . " 00:00:00");
$results = $page->children("date_end=''|date_end>=$start,date<$start,sort=-date,limit=12");


$start = strtotime(date('Y-m-d') . " 00:00:00");
$results = $page->children("!date_end|date_end>=$start,date<$start,sort=-date,limit=12");


$start = strtotime(date('Y-m-d') . " 00:00:00");
$results = $page->children("date_end>=$start|!date_end,date<$start,sort=-date,limit=12");

All this variants not worked for me and returned zero results.

ok, tested a little and the selectors seem to work for me, primarily tested with this one:

$results = $page->children("!date_end|date_end>=$start,date<$start,sort=-date,limit=12");

Did you try outputting your date and date_end fields unformatted to see if they contain proper values?

Hi @Elchin

I got them in the past but the query was to slow so I finally used a custom query to achieve that, you might be interested as I don't know the number of pages your trying to fetch - I give you a small module which could be extended, shipped with a hook function which return all pages between two dates given a fieldname and a template id :

<?php namespace ProcessWire;


class MyPageHooks extends WireData implements Module {

  public static function getModuleInfo() {

      return array(
          'title'    => 'MyPageHooks',
          'version'  => '1.0.0',
          'summary'  => 'Adds new methods to $page',
          'singular' => true,
          'autoload' => true,
          'author'   => 'flydev',
          'href'     => 'https://processwire.com/talk/topic/21021-selector-where-now-between-start-date-and-end-date-or-now-bigger-than-start-date-and-end-date-is-empty/'
      );
  }

  public function init() {
    $this->addHook('Page::getPagesFromDateRange', $this, 'getPagesFromDateRange');
  }

  /**

  *  $page->getPagesFromDateRange('date1', '2019/01/01', '2019/03/11', 53);
  */
  public function getPagesFromDateRange($event) {
    $page = $event->object;
    $fieldname = $event->arguments(0);
    $dateStart = $this->sanitizer->datetime($event->arguments(1));
    $dateEnd = $this->sanitizer->datetime($event->arguments(2));
    $templateId = $this->sanitizer->int($event->arguments(3));

    $q = new DatabaseQuerySelect();
    $q->select("pages.id");
    $q->from("pages");
    $q->where("
      (pages.parent_id IN (SELECT pages_id FROM pages_parents WHERE parents_id={$page->id})) 
      AND (pages.templates_id={$templateId}) 
      AND(
      pages.id IN (
        SELECT pages.id 
        FROM `pages` 
        JOIN field_{$fieldname} AS dateStart ON dateStart.pages_id=pages.id AND (((DATE(dateStart.data)>='{$dateStart}'))) 
        JOIN field_{$fieldname} AS dateEnd ON dateEnd.pages_id=pages.id AND (((DATE(dateEnd.data)<='{$dateEnd}'))) 
      )   
    )");

    $stmt = $q->execute();
    $event->return = $stmt->fetchAll(\PDO::FETCH_ASSOC);
  }
}

Should this have been $this->sanitizer->int() ?

It would be awesome to be also able to pass a selector string to the method (e.g. "some_field%=value") but I guess it would get quite involved to translate that into SQL.

This not work for me.

The example below returns pages that have property `date_end` and `date_end`>=$start

$results = $page->children("date_end>=$start,date<$start,sort=-date,limit=12");

The example below returns pages that not have property `date_end` at all

$results = $page->children("!date_end,date<$start,sort=-date,limit=12");

But I can't get this pages with this two conditions together.

I don't know why but the OR condition `!date_end|date_end>=$start` didn't worked in this case.

How can I use paging in this case?

@Elchin, try:


$results = $page->children("date<today, (date_end>today), (date_end=''), sort=-date, limit=12");

You can use "today" in place of your timestamp.

Thank you @Robin S

This is working. Please explain why my variants not works and why your variant works?

The naming of the OR-groups is not correct. You only name OR-groups if there is more than one set of OR-groups and one group in each named set must match. Your selector here is saying that both (date<$start,date_end='') and (date<$start,date_end>=$start) must match which is impossible because these contradict each other.

results = $page->children("date<$start,(date_end='',date_end>=$start),sort=-date,limit=12");

Wrong use of OR-group syntax with only one OR condition.

Wrong use of pipe character. The pipe character can only go between field names in a selector clause...

field_a|field_b~=foo

...or between values in a selector clause...

field_a%=foo|bar

To paginate the result, you have to know the total amount of pages you fetch so we must add another hook to our module (full code here) :

  public static function getModuleInfo() {

      return array(

Then you just have to write a little script to paginate the result. To try it, create on you webroot directory a file called `test.php` and put the following code in then navigate to hxxp://example.com/test.php :

 

Spoiler

<?php namespace ProcessWire;
// boostrap processwire for the test page
include_once './index.php';

$count = 0;
$limit = 20;
$page = (isset($_GET['page'])) ? (int)$_GET['page'] : 1;
$start = $limit * ($page - 1);

// parent page
$p = wire('pages')->get('/parkings/cesh/');
// get our result with a LIMIT of number of pages
$r = $p->getPagesFromDateRange('date_sortie', '2019/03/01', '2019/03/11', 53, $start, $limit);
// get the total count of children with template id 53 if not set
$count = $p->getPagesCountFromDateRange('date_sortie', '2019/03/01', '2019/03/11', 53); 
// get the number of pages in the 
$totalPages = ceil($count['total'] / $limit);

// the result table per paginated pages
echo "<table border='1'><tr><th>id</th><th>title</th></tr>";
if(count($r)) {
  foreach ($r as $row) {
    echo "<tr><td>". $row['id'] ."</td><td>". $wire->pages->get($row['id'])->title ."</td>";
  }
}
echo "</table>";

// pagination links
$pagination = "";
for($i = 1; $i <= $totalPages; $i++) {
  $pagination .= ($i !== $page)
    ? "<a href='?page=$i'>Page $i</a> "
    : "$page ";
}
echo $pagination; 

 

 

Result :
