[solved] Issue using Toggle Fieldtype in selector for pagination

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

using PW 3.0.148 with the regular site profile for a blog, I got an an empty pagination output when I had a Toggle field in the selector.

The Toggle Fieldtype was introduced with https://processwire.com/blog/posts/pw-3.0.139/ .

The selector resulting in empty pagination:

$posts = $pages->find("parent=blog, sort=-date, limit=10, toggle_field=0");

It worked well, when I replaced the Toggle field with a Checkbox field:

$posts = $pages->find("parent=blog, sort=-date, limit=10, checkbox_field=0");

So the prerequisites for the pagination to work are given.

The settings for the Toggle field were:

  • Formatted value: Integer
  • Label Type: Yes/No
  • Input Type: Toggle buttons
  • Default selected option: No

Thanks for any hints!

Check if the selector returns any results (echo $posts->count;).

Looking here, it seems like you've set your field and selector right, but just maybe you have changed default state for the Toggle Inputfield after it has been created for your posts and it still holds the '' (empty string) value for the most of them if not all. You can look in the database to be sure.

Indeed, that was the reason for the strange behaviour.
Thank you, Ivan, for your help.

Sorry, but i have to pour some water into the wine: It works well only on my local installation (xampp), but not on the live site.

With   toggle_field=1  in the selector, the output is correct;

with   toggle_field=0   the output is empty, $posts->count() is 0.

Considering a remark in https://processwire.com/blog/posts/pw-3.0.139/ I thought it could be necessary to make it a required field. But that changed nothing.

Finally I got it to run correctly by editing the value in each single post (changing it to 1, save, changing back to 0 and save again) - at least there are not so many posts at the moment...

Obviously setting the default value to 0 (directly at the creation of the field) has no effect at all.

Just an hour ago I realized that the very same issue was adressed by @Nils Wiere in this post (and that I already asked back in June...):

  So further help is much appreciated!

      Hey I'm building my first new site in well over a year and am a little rusty on selectors but particularly retrieving sub-fields of selected pages.
      I am trying to output the meta data of a blog post as follows.
      [Person Name] is just a field with a Page Reference and simple enough.
      [Job Title] is the sub-field within the page that was referenced above.
      I actually have it working with the following:
      Posted by: <?php if($page->insight_author) { echo $page->insight_author("<a href='{url}'>{title}</a>");} ?> , <?php $roles = $page->insight_author; foreach ($roles as $role) { echo "{$role->staff_role}";} ?> but was wondering how to do this with selector sub-selectors instead. My current code is probably quite 'old school'?
      Thanks

      Hi there! And thanks for Processwire!
      I have an interesting task which i cannot fulfill as i want. Maybe someone could help me please?
      Let's imagine a simple page structure of this kind:
      Category 1
      + Item 1.1
      + Item 1.2
      Category 2
      + Item 2.1
      + Item 2.2
      My task is to attach some items to more than one category, at least to show some items on different frontend category pages. With PW, it's a piece of cake. I've just created a field called Items (of type Page Reference) and attrached it to Category template. Since i have lots of items inside each category i preferred to use Page Autocomplete input for my Items field. The pages available for autocomplete are restricted by a very simple selector:
      template=item
      It works like a charm. But later i decided to make this autocomplete even smarter and to exclude current category children items from it. I tried to update my selector this way...
      template=item,parent!=(page)
      ...and oops, this broke my selector. My autocomplete founds nothing. Sorry, i had to replace the square braces by () because of this forum limitations, i swear i'm using square brackets in real-life selector!
      What am i doing wrong? And is there any way to include current page info in autocomplete-related selectors? Thanks in advance!

      I'm having and always have a hard time building PaginatedArrays, I never know where to put the "limit=24" selector so please enlighten me.
      Here's what I'm doing…
      $categories = $page->protable('start=0, limit=999999'); // this I need in order to retrieve the pages's "categories" and I don't know how to make use of $rows instead for that purpose because of this confusing limit-API $rows = $page->protable; // put ("limit=20") here? $custom = buildSelector($input, $rows); // this function returns an array of selectors depending on the user input $items = new PaginatedArray; // or here? // or here? $items->find("limit=20") // or like this? $items("limit=20") // or like this? $items = $items("limit=20") // or like this? $items = $items->find("limit=20") foreach ($rows as $r) : if ($custom->get('selector')->matches($r)) : $items->add($r); endif; endforeach; // or at this point? and then
      if ($items) { // or maybe somewhere here?     echo '<span class="grey">'.$items->getPaginationString(array(     'label' => 'entries',     'zeroLabel' => '0 entries', // 3.0.127+ only     'usePageNum' => false,     'count' => count($items),     'start' => $items->getStart(),     'limit' => count($items),     'total' => $items->getTotal()     )); and then of course…
      $pager = $modules->get("MarkupPagerNav"); echo '<div class="uk-flex uk-flex-center">'.$pager->render($items, $options).'</div>'; I'm out of ideas and confused cause it doesn't make sense to me either way.
      ____
      The buildSelector function above returns and array…
      $selected = new Selectors("$letter, $searchterm, $category"); $custom = new Wirearray; $custom->set('selector', $selected); $built->set('sort', $sort); return $custom; and each of the new selectors are basically strings ("category=whatever")
      Also, you cannot put the "sort=title" or whatever as a selector for the Selectors function (see above). Why, I know not.
      I don't know if that is the proper way but selecting kind of works now as opposed to many other ways I tried. Selectors always require a lot of trial and error, it seems to have a very sensitive API, always depends on double quotes, single quotes and how you concatenate.
      Thanks for help!

      Hello si have this gallery, pretty good website, but yesterday client uploaded over 3000 images oto the site, and it cannot handle filtering them out and showing them at the same time , i wanted some simple pagination maybe infinite scrool or onclikc load whatever, but i cannot seem to implement infinite ajax scrool and any other JS methods, nut sure why i still got stuck at the next method, like there is not next page.
      so i wanted to implement PW method of paginating i wanted to use MarkupPagerNav
      so far i have  this code for outputting images
      $pa = $pages->find("template=basic-page|art_gallery, images.tags!=''"); /* $pa = $pages->find("has_parent!=2,id!=2|7,status<".Page::statusTrash.",include=all"); */ echo "<div class='js-filter' id='gal' >"; /* row gtr-50 gtr-uniform */ $frame = $pages->get('/settings/')->watermark; foreach ($pa as $p) { foreach($p->images as $image) { if(!$image->hasTag("act")) { $options = array('quality' => 80, 'upscaling' => true, 'cropping' => 'north', 'sharpening'=>'medium'); $large = $image->size(1200, 0, $options); $wmImage = $large->pim2Load('wm1', ['quality'=>80, 'upscaling' => true, 'sharpening'=>'medium', 'defaultGamma'=>-1])->watermarkLogo($frame, $position='se',$padding=1.5)->pimSave(); /* zmazanie variacii, treba odpoznakovat ked sa menia nastavenie vyssie */ /* $image->pim2Load('wm1')->removePimVariations(); */ $thumb = $image->size(400, 300, $options); echo "<div class='$image->tags grid-item' style=''>"; echo "<span style='overflow:hidden;'class='image fit'>"; echo "<a class='hvr-reveal' href='$wmImage->url'>"; echo "<img uk-scrollspy='cls: uk-animation-fade; repeat: false' src='$thumb->url' alt='$image->tags'>"; echo "</a>"; echo "</span>"; echo "</div>"; } else { $options = array('quality' => 80, 'upscaling' => true, 'cropping' => 'north', 'sharpening'=>'medium'); $large = $image->size(1200, 0, $options); $wmImage = $large->pim2Load('wm2', ['quality'=>80, 'upscaling' => true, 'sharpening'=>'medium', 'defaultGamma'=>-1])->pixelate(25)->smooth(255)->watermarkLogo($frame, $position='se',$padding=1.5)->pimSave(); /* zmazanie variacii, treba odpoznakovat ked sa menia nastavenie vyssie */ /* $image->pim2Load('wm2')->removePimVariations(); */ $thumb = $image->size(400, 300, $options); echo "<div class='$image->tags blur grid-item' style=''>"; echo "<span style='overflow:hidden;'class='image fit'>"; echo "<a class='hvr-reveal' href='$wmImage->url'>"; echo "<img uk-scrollspy='cls: uk-animation-fade; repeat: false' src='$thumb->url' alt='$image->tags'><span>18+</span>"; /* <span>BY OPENING THIS IMAGE YOU CONSET THAT YOU'RE 18 YEARS OR OLDER</span> text copyraightova,y dat vedla obrazky potom */ echo "</a>"; echo "</span>"; echo "</div>"; } } }; to put it  simply, it first searches for sites, and then outputs all images from those sites, pretty simple, it also uses watermarking and uikit filtering
      i have filtering done like this
      $num = 1; echo "<ul class='uk-subnav uk-subnav-pill'>"; foreach(array_unique($alltags) as $key => $tag) { echo"<li uk-filter-control='filter: .$tag;group: $num' class='butt$num' uk-toggle='target: .butt$num ; animation: uk-animation-fade; queued: true'><a href='#'>$tag</a></li>"; echo"<li uk-filter-control='group: $num' class='butt$num active' aria-hidden='true' hidden='' uk-toggle='target: .butt$num; animation: uk-animation-fade'><a href='#'>remove - $tag</a></li>"; $num++; } echo "</ul>"; simple, but i have NO idea how to implement pagination, just because it seems to work that it like find all images, and stores with limit, and then just paginates them, but i cannot apply this method in my code.
      any idea how to make any JS inifite scroll work ? or just how to make this work ? with my setup, or with some modifications, it just have to work as is now

      I will preface this by saying I have checked (multiple times) per template (both parent and child, to be totally sure) that they are set to allow pagination.
      What's happening is that my first page of results keeps displaying, despite /page2/ being in the URL. The pagination markup also indicates I am still on page one. This is happening across multiple types of paginated pages.
      $pagination = $pager->render($results, $poptions); The options are just markup...
      $poptions = array( 'numPageLinks' => 5, 'listClass' => 'uk-pagination', 'linkMarkup' => "<a href='{url}'>{out}</a>", 'currentItemClass' => 'uk-active', 'separatorItemLabel' => '<span>&hellip;</span>', 'separatorItemClass' => 'uk-disabled', 'currentLinkMarkup' => "<span>{out}</span>", 'nextItemLabel' => '<i class="uk-icon-angle-double-right"></i>', 'previousItemLabel' => '<i class="uk-icon-angle-double-left"></i>', 'nextItemClass' => '', // blank out classes irrelevant to Uikit 'previousItemClass' => '', 'lastItemClass' => '', ); In the header, I call for the module and the options include:
      $pager = $modules->get('MarkupPagerNav'); include_once("pagination.inc"); Aside from the usual "check that you allowed pagination" advice, what issue might these symptoms indicate?
