SearchEngine 0.10.0 was just released. Not a whole lot of stuff in this release – basically just one new feature, one minor addition to the default theme CSS, and some PHPDoc improvements.

### Added
- New Renderer::___renderResultsJSON() method for rendering search results as a JSON string.
- Additional CSS rules to make sure that visited links appear correctly in the default output.

While building an AJAX suggest search feature it occurred to me that it would be nice if SearchEngine could return search results as JSON out of the box. Newly added renderResultsJSON() method provides this capability, and new settings results_json_fields and results_json_options allow customising what gets returned, and how.

More details (and an example of using this feature) in the README: https://github.com/teppokoivula/SearchEngine#json-output.

Hello - Thanks for your great module!

I have a special need for the side, I'm working on right now:  Is there a possibility not to show the "result_summary_field" in the rendered results, but the 'near' content of the search-match in the search field itself - with the match highlited?

So lets say there is this content in the search_index field: ' Hey - this is just a simple little test for the search engine!'
I am searching for the phrase 'little'.
The rendered result now should show me lets say: '... just a simple little  test for the s...'

To be honest: My php-skills are not that good to understand all the files of your module -  but as far as I can see, I am afraid that it will not be possible in an easy way to change the code for my needs!? 

Thanks for any reply!

Assuming that I correctly understood your need, this would require dynamically generating the descriptions. Technically it should be doable by hooking into Renderer::RenderResultDesc(), but you'd have to provide the entire description generation and highlighting logic yourself, so it might be a bit difficult to achieve in practice.

This is actually something that I've got planned, but I'm not really sure when I'll get to it. Anyway, it's good to know that there's demand for it.

Couple of updates during the past week, 0.11.0 and 0.11.1. I'll attach the changelog below, but here's a summary of changes:

  • Saving just a single field (via API or perhaps some async feature) should now correctly regenerate the search index.
  • Page Reference fields are supported: the title and name values of referenced pages are stored in the index. Page names can also be search with the field name; if, say, you have a Page Reference field called "tags", you can find specific matches by searching for "tags:[tag-name]" ("tags:tailwind" etc.)
  • One relatively big change behind the scenes is that now the search index is generated after page has been saved, by hooking into Pages::savedPageOrField and triggering a new save for just the index field, quietly and with hooks disabled.

Originally the module hooked into Pages::saveReady and generated the index so that it got saved along with any user-provided changes, but it turns out that this could result in some rather obscure bugs due to output formatting being enabled on the fly (which is intentional, and required for the most representative search index) which in turn was triggering interesting side effects under some specific conditions. So far the new method hasn't resulted in any unexpected side effects as far as I can tell, but it's worth pointing out this is a pretty big update.

## [0.11.1] - 2019-09-26

### Changed
- Index value gets saved in Pages::savedPageOrField instead of Pages::saved.

## [0.11.0] - 2019-09-26

### Added
- Support for indexing Page Reference fields.
- Support for indexing non-field Page properties (id, name).
- New hookable method Indexer::___getPageReferenceIndexValue().

### Changed
- Index value gets saved in Pages::saved instead of Pages::saveReady so that we can avoid messing with the regular save process.

### Fixed
- Fixed the "save" behaviour of the Indexer::indexPage() method.

Hi Teppo, is there a way to make the search language aware? - I mean getting the right context from mutilanguage fields per active language? Probably this would mean an indexing per language?

If not, I wonder if at least all language text entries from a multi language field get indexed? - so a search in the non default language might find maybe too much, but not too little?

Sorry for the late reply. This is definitely something I'll have to figure out, one way or another, just haven't had the time (or need for that matter) yet.

I'll have to do some testing first and get back to this later 🙂

      Hi! I've created a small Inputfield module called InputfieldFloatRange which allows you to use an HTML5 <input type="range" ../> slider as an InputField. I needed something like this for a project where the client needs to be able to tweak this value more based on 'a feeling' than just entering a boring old number. Maybe more people can use this so I'm hereby releasing it into the wild.  
      What is it?
      The missing range slider Inputfield for Processwire. 
      What does it do?
      This module extends InputfieldFloat and allows you to use HTML5 range sliders for number fields in your templates.
      It includes a visible and editable value field, to override/tweak the value if required.  
      Min/max values Precision (number of decimals) Steps (Read more) Manual override of the selected value (will still adhere to the rules above) Usage
      Clone / zip repo Install FieldtypeFloatRange, this automatically installs the Inputfield Create new field of type `Float (range)` or convert an existing `Float`, `Integer` or `Text` field. To render the field's value simply echo `$page->field` Demo
      A field with Min=0, Max=1, Step=0.2, Precision=2

      Field with settings Min=0, Max=200, Step=0.25, Precision=2

      Make the display-field's size configurable (will use the Input Size field setting)  Hopefully become redundant If it's usable for others I'll add it to the Modules list  
      - Fix issue where setting the step value to an empty value created problem with validation
      - Make the display-field optional 
      - Initial release

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. Field widths entered into the Template Field Widths inputfield are only applied if the Edit Template form is submitted with the Template Field Widths inputfield in an opened state. "Collapsed" is the recommended setting if you think you might also use core inputs for setting field widths in a template context. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.

      This module allows you to automatically rename file (including image) uploads according to a configurable format
      This module lets you define as many rules as you need to determine how uploaded files will be named and you can have different rules for different pages, templates, fields, and file extensions, or one rule for all uploads. Renaming works for files uploaded via the admin interface and also via the API, including images added from remote URLs.   Github: https://github.com/adrianbj/CustomUploadNames
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-custom-upload-names/
      Renaming Rules
      The module config allows you to set an unlimited number of Rename Rules. You can define rules to specific fields, templates, pages, and file extensions. If a rule option is left blank, the rule with be applied to all fields/templates/pages/extensions. Leave Filename Format blank to prevent renaming for a specific field/template/page combo, overriding a more general rule. Rules are processed in order, so put more specific rules before more general ones. You can drag to change the order of rules as needed. The following variables can be used in the filename format: $page, $template, $field, and $file. For some of these (eg. $field->description), if they haven't been filled out and saved prior to uploading the image, renaming won't occur on upload, but will happen on page save (could be an issue if image has already been inserted into RTE/HTML field before page save). Some examples: $page->title mysite-{$template->name}-images $field->label $file->description {$page->name}-{$file->filesize}-kb prefix-[Y-m-d_H-i-s]-suffix (anything inside square brackets is is considered to be a PHP date format for the current date/time) randstring[n] (where n is the number of characters you want in the string) ### (custom number mask, eg. 001 if more than one image with same name on a page. This is an enhanced version of the automatic addition of numbers if required) If 'Rename on Save' is checked files will be renamed again each time a page is saved (admin or front-end via API). WARNING: this setting will break any direct links to the old filename, which is particularly relevant for images inserted into RTE/HTML fields. The Filename Format can be defined using plain text and PW $page variable, for example: mysite-{$page->path} You can preserve the uploaded filename for certain rules. This will allow you to set a general renaming rule for your entire site, but then add a rule for a specific page/template/field that does not rename the uploaded file. Just simply build the rule, but leave the Filename Format field empty. You can specify an optional character limit (to nearest whole word) for the length of the filename - useful if you are using $page->path, $path->name etc and have very long page names - eg. news articles, publication titles etc. NOTE - if you are using ProcessWire's webp features, be sure to use the useSrcExt because if you have jpg and png files on the same page and your rename rules result in the same name, you need to maintain the src extension so they are kept as separate files.
      $config->webpOptions = array(     'useSrcExt' => false, // Use source file extension in webp filename? (file.jpg.webp rather than file.webp) ); Acknowledgments
      The module config settings make use of code from Pete's EmailToPage module and the renaming function is based on this code from Ryan: http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3299-ability-to-define-convention-for-image-and-file-upload-names/?p=32623 (also see this post for his thoughts on file renaming and why it is the lazy way out - worth a read before deciding to use this module). 
      This should not be needed on most sites, but I work with lots of sites that host PDFs and photos/vectors that are available for download and I have always renamed the files on upload because clients will often upload files with horrible meaningless filenames like:
