Issues with rendering product catalog

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I've created a product database which all use the template product.php and are published on the website.

I'm trying to create an overview table with pagination of all the products, but using $pages->get does not return an object, only the object title.

$products = $pages->get("template=product, limit=10");

This returns 10 strings in the frontend but not the object. When looping over the result set to get product fields, i get the following error:

Notice: Trying to get property 'title' of non-object

 

Because the product database is fairly large, i've added a pagination using the same query and this does return all the pages, but i can't click on the links that the paginator renders.

$results = $pages->find("template=product, limit=10");
					if($results->getTotal() > 10) {
						echo $results->renderPager(array(
							"nextItemLabel" => "Volgende",
							"previousItemLabel" => "Vorige",
							"currentItemClass" => 'active'
						));
					}

I've added the option in the template to allow page numbers. When i navigate to the link manually, i still end up seeing the 10 first products.

 

I've tried changing several settings around, but i'm a bit stuck on how to resolve these issues. Do you have any advice what I need to adjust?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

See the docs to understand the difference between $pages->get() and $pages->find():
https://processwire.com/api/ref/pages/get/
https://processwire.com/api/ref/pages/find/

You want $pages->find(). And you only want to execute it once and use $results for both the results list and the pagination.

$results = $pages->find("template=product, limit=10");

// Results list
foreach($results as $result) {
	// Output each individual result
	// ...
}

// Pagination
echo $results->renderPager(array(
	'nextItemLabel' => 'Volgende',
	'previousItemLabel' => 'Vorige',
	'currentItemClass' => 'active'
));

Thanks for the clarification. I did interpret that incorrectly and using find i get all the requested information correctly.

The pagination links still aren't working at the moment, where the issue remains the same. 

Links are present and rendered, but nothing happens when clicking them. Navigating to the url itself, will always render the first page of results wether being on page 1 or 1831 (current last page)

Enable pagination/page numbers in your template (the overview template) settings.

"Allow Page Numbers" was enabled in the template allready upon creating the template. But the pagination just doesn't work it seems.

      Hi everyone,
      I'm working on a CLI script that renders paginated pages.
      Therefore I iterate trough paginated pages and set the page number and render the result.
      My problem is, after calling the render function for the first time, the output doesn't change even if I change the page number.
       
      DEMO:
      I'm using a template that renders a pagination of its children:
      <?php echo $page->children("limit=3")->render(); ?> I can view the paginated results in the Browser:
      /page-rendering-pagination/ /page-rendering-pagination/page2 /page-rendering-pagination/page3 ... When trying to render the different pages using the API I always get the first result, even if I change the page Number.
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; include('./index.php'); wire('input')->setPageNum(1); $p = wire('pages')->get('/page-rendering-pagination'); var_dump($p->render()); // renders first three items wire('input')->setPageNum(2); var_dump($p->render()); // also renders the first three items Am I missing something? Is there some kind of caching mechanism that I'm not aware of?
      Thanks for your help.

      Quick question: Is it possible to use PW's pagination for other things than PageArrays? i.e. query custom database tables and paginate the results? Has anyone ever tried it?

      Hello,
      I have a search page loosely based on Skyscrapers where I'm parsing a selector with options 'beds', 'bathrooms', 'size' fields. It is working well until I select 'Any' after I've run a search. This is where no results are returned (/?beds=&bathrooms=&size=&submit=). I want it to reset and show all results.
      I hope this isn't too vague.

      Hello Community 🙂
      Has anyone ever tried having multiple elements on one page that get their info with $pages->find('selector, limit=n') and tried using pagination on one of these elements without effecting the other?
      I have a slider on a page where I display content with pagination. But when I go to page two, the slider content also goes to page two, which I don't want it to do 🙂
      Any tips are greatly appreciated!
      Thanks!

      Hello 🙂
      I have set up pagination on a mulitlanguage site.
      I've done this before, but this time I have a problem I can't solve.
      Pagination is activated on 'parent-template' and 'child-template' just to be sure 🙂
      This is my code:
      $children = $page->children('limit=1'); foreach($children as $child) { $title = $child->title; echo $title; } echo $children->renderPager(); The navigation is output correctly and the link look correct as well 'parent-page/page2/'.
      But when I click the link, the site seems to redirect back to 'parent-page/
      Any help would be greatly appreciated 🙂
      - Peter
