Page Refence updating fields between pages

Recommended Posts

It's a bilingual site. There are two pages: "Artists" and "Events" each with a "Page Reference" field connecting each other.

- Artists has a field where one can choose events available.

- Events has a field where you can either choose artists available or create new ones.

The problems: 

- When I create an "Artist" page and select events from the list, it doesn't update the collection of participating artists on the "Event" page.

- When I create an artist from the "Event" page. The field 'artist page > settings > language' is not "Active" for the second language.  When the artist page is created manually,"Active" is on by default.

I know this all have to do with hooks, but I'm don't fully understand the logics.

You can try this hook.

Thanks Arjen, I thought the idea of "Page Reference" was to the same. 

Do "Page Reference" and "connect page..." work together or it's either one or...?

      Hi, can you guys help a beginner with a problem..
      On my template (profile_page) i have a dropdown (page reference) where i can choose a sports team (team_page) that is related to that profile which is also its parent. Then on my Competition1 page (competition_page) I have page reference field (profiles) a dropdown that i want to display only profiles that has choose a specific sports team (template=team_page) the page parent to be specific.
      Structure/Template
      Sports_team1 (team_page)
           Profile1 (profile_page)
           Profile2 (profile_page)
           Profile3 (profile_page)
           Competition1 (competition_page)
       
      ready.php
      <?php $wire->addHookAfter('InputfieldPage::getSelectablePages', function($event) { if($event->object->hasField == 'profiles') { $relative = $page->parent->name; $event->return = $event->pages->find("template=profile_page, sports_team=$relative"); } }); ?> This returns with no results in the dropdown. If i remove sports_team=$relative then it displays all profiles that have profile_page as template, so it works almost. But i will have more sports teams so this is just an example. I only want to display the profiles that has choosen the parent team on there profile page in admin not front end.
      I hope i was able to explain it so you guys can understand a little bit. Need some help please! /Thanks

      Hello all,
      wasn't sure where to put this, so it goes in General section.
      Ryan shows a hook that we can use to mirror files on demand from live server to development environment to be up to date with the files on the server without having to download complete site/assets/files folder.
      I just implemented this but had problems getting files to load from a site in development that is secured with user/password via htaccess.
      First I tried to use WireHttp setHeader method for basic authentication like this
      function mirrorFilesfromLiveServer(HookEvent $event) { $config = $event->wire('config'); $file = $event->return; if ($event->method == 'url') { // convert url to disk path $file = $config->paths->root . substr($file, strlen($config->urls->root)); } if (!file_exists($file)) { // download file from source if it doesn't exist here $src = 'http://mydomain.com/site/assets/files/'; $url = str_replace($config->paths->files, $src, $file); $http = new WireHttp(); // basic authentication $u = 'myuser'; $pw = 'mypassword'; $http->setHeader('Authorization: Basic', base64_encode("$u:$pw")); $http->download($url, $file); } } But, unfortunately this didn't work.
      So now I am using curl to do the download. My hook function now looks like this
      function mirrorFilesfromLiveServer(HookEvent $event) { $config = $event->wire('config'); $file = $event->return; if ($event->method == 'url') { // convert url to disk path $file = $config->paths->root . substr($file, strlen($config->urls->root)); } if (!file_exists($file)) { // download file from source if it doesn't exist here $src = 'http://mydomain.com/site/assets/files/'; $fp = fopen($file, 'w+'); // init file pointer $url = str_replace($config->paths->files, $src, $file); $u = 'myuser'; $pw = 'mypassword'; $ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 50); // crazy high timeout just in case there are very large files curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "$u:$pw"); // authentication curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH, CURLAUTH_BASIC); // authentication curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FILE, $fp); // give curl the file pointer so that it can write to it curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, true); $data = curl_exec($ch); curl_close($ch); } } Now I can load files and images from the htaccess protected development server 🙂
      If anyone knows how to get this to work with WireHttp, please let me know. Thank you.

      I've created a simple sports league fixture generator in a template called 'League'. Teams are added as page references then a fixture list is created as a ProFields table by hooking page save to add new rows to the table.
      The bit I need help with is that I'm trying to check a fixture doesn't already exist before adding it to the table (e.g. if a new team is added to the league). I'm trying to do this with a PW selector to filter the fixtures table and check whether Team A vs Team B already exists in the table. Then on the next line checking no fixture was found by using count().
      However as soon as I add the selector the script no longer adds any rows to the table. If I take it out, it all works fine (albeit with duplicate fixtures each time the page is saved). I've also tested the selector in a page template and it filters as expected. It's late here (UK)... I'm probably doing something stupid! Any ideas?
      <?php //Hook page save to generate league fixture lists $wire->addHookAfter("Pages::saved(template=league)", function ($event) { //Get which page has been saved $page = $event->arguments(0); $noFixturesAdded = 0; //For each team in league cycle through and add home fixtures foreach ($page->teams_in_league as $teamA) { foreach ($page->teams_in_league as $teamB) { //Check if fixture already exists $existingFixtures = $page->fixtures("team_a=$teamA,team_b=$teamB"); //Check team A is not the same as team B as you can't play yourself //Then add row to fixture table if ($teamB != $teamA && $existingFixtures->count() < 1 ) { $fixture = $page->fixtures->makeBlankItem(); $fixture->team_a = $teamA->id; $fixture->team_b = $teamB->id; $page->fixtures->add($fixture); $noFixturesAdded ++; } } } //Save updates to table $page->save('fixtures'); $message = "League saved. $noFixturesAdded new fixtures were added"; $this->message($message); });

      Question to professionals)
      I use the "Page Reference" field (name = categories, types = multiple, asm-select) and checkbox field (name = notify_user).
      When editing the page, I need to check if:
      - (categories) values has changed (deselected one or more current pages), make (notify_user) required.
      - (categories) values has changed (selected one or more new pages), make (notify_user) required.
      - (categories) values don't change, then the (notify_user) is not required.
      I tried to make a condition, required if:
      1. "categories!=1020|1490" - does not work.
      2. "categories!=1020|1490, categories.count != 2" - does not work.
      3. "categories%=1020|1490 - js error.
      Please advise how best to solve this problem.

      Going through my long quest to get better with ajax and utilizing the api, I have hit yet another roadblock. I currently have a form with an image field (thanks to flydev for getting that sorted), "title" text input, and a select field set to multiple. In my ajax call, I added in:
      tags = $("#select-tags").val(); form_data.append('tags', tags); $.ajax({ type: 'POST', data: form_data, contentType: false, processData: false, url: '/ajax/upload-preview/', success: function(data) { console.log("Woo"); }, error: function(xhr, ajaxOptions, thrownError) { alert(xhr.responseText); } }); And in the ajax template: 
      $tags = $sanitizer->text($_POST['tags']); $image = $sanitizer->text($_POST['image']); $p = new Page(); $p->template = "preview"; $p->parent = $pages->get("/previews/"); $p->name = $title; $p->title = $title; $p->tags = $tags; $p->save(); If I select a "tag" from the select input and submit, it does indeed add it to the Page Reference field in the backend. However, this does not work with an array being passed to it of multiple options.

      So it does appear that my ajax call is trying to submit multiple options, but I am really just unsure how to get these two added in. I saw in other forums posts of add($page) and even add(array()). Do I need to handle this js array differently or do  I need to foreach through the $tags to add it like:
      foreach($tags as $tag) { $p->tags->add($tag); $p->save(); } I tried this approach, but apparently I am still missing something.
       
      Edit:
      I was doing some tweaking, and I know I can split the js array out like:
      for (i = 0, len = tags.length; i < len; i++) { console.log(tags[i]); } However, I am not sure then how to handle the POST in php if I were to split it out.
