First of all, I want to thank you all who blessed us with this great CMS. I have done 20+ sites with this and I'm very happy. I love the API.
In case anyone is interested in using Discord to chat and talk about ProcessWire, I made server for us. Discord is a free voice and text chat app designed specifically for gaming, but it's very good for our kind of communities too. Chatting is similar to IRC, voice is similar to TeamSpeak or Mumble, and there will be coming new features like video chatting. Also chance to use notifications when someone talking in a specific channel, but the server's default is only notified when mentioned.
There can be multiple channels in one server; general, help, devtalk, security, specific languages. All can be public or accessed by only for a certain role.
And if you're not there, let's say for five days, you can still search or read things what people have talked since you were there last time (if mod did not purge that channel). Windows and Mac clients are very good ones, but Linux is still in beta. And of course, there is webchat too.
More information about Discord can be found here: https://discordapp.com/
Of course, all the ProcessWire developers can get moderator access to the server. Forums are, of course, very good place to discuss things (and I have found many answers from here), but that is not real time and getting the answers you need can take a lot of time here. People want to get their answers faster, right now, so that’s why Discord can be a very good way to grow our community. Think about it.

I just saw totoff's new doctor's site and thought, I add my dentist site here: http://zahnarztpraxis-wunschik.de/
Credits for design and concept go to http://www.gruenklee.de/grkl/
They did a great job on the design and photography.
This is my first PW project where I learned my ways around.
It is running on v2.3. I used the default site and married it with H5BP and added a sass framework for the styling part that I used in good old Joomla days.
From the PW side of things, this wasn't a great challenge thanks to this great forum. I was very happy about the Gmaps field. Only had to tweak it a little to display the info bubble. And FormBuilder. Didn't want to spend too much time on the form coding in a new environment. Tricky part here was to get the datepicker to display in German.
There are some Animation features. The three info boxes at the top are slidable. And there state (closed/open) is remebered across the site. That was tricky, too because I had never worked wit jQuery cookies before. Gave me some headache but finally worked out fine.
There are also some image slideshow features in the header on the "Praxis&Philosophie" page and on the start page. I used cycle2 jQuery plugin which is absolutely great.
And some slide-in effects on the team page.
All in all I learned really a lot from setting this up. It gave me a good base to explore PW further and work on more challenging projects with even more Animations AJAX etc. that shall be presented here in the near future.
Hey guys, another green website from the processwire beginners based near munich. This website is our first REAL PW project - and (for us) one of the biggest sites we‘ve ever built. And actually the first one with a CMS/framework that we did totally on our own. So, don‘t be too negative - but don‘t be too positive either.
There are still many things that are not perfect yet, but since we started to design this website in 2011, it really was time to get it "into the wild" now! Many furniture manufacturers still haven‘t sent their best product images, so that is why there are still some lowres images in there. The project chapter needs some work on the photos as well, but that time will come...
The site is not responsive yet, because it wasn‘t our main goal in 2011 - so we only wanted to get it working on tablets and phones, but without any special mobile styles. This will come, but that may take a while.
The modules we used:
I‘m totally glad I found processwire a few months ago, because at first we planned to get that site done with pure static html. Which would not be TOO nice with about 80 html pages and many, many images (about 400).
Finally a few "thank you"s to ryan, soma, diogo (for creating processwire and your help in this lovely forum) and to mademyday (for posting this on twitter, which made me read about processwire).
Comments are welcome! Of course!
It is always interesting to find where processwire is mentioned, so this is the topic to post links to articles, blog posts, discussions, tweets etc which are about or related to ProcessWire.
I started with this one, which is well written article about some basic differences between WP and PW: http://www.globi.ca/articles/articles/processwire_vs_wordpress/
I am in the early evaluation stage for PW.
Coming from the Drupal 7 world and not being a software developer but coming
from the design-side, these are my main goals for a new project:
design ...is everything:
The normal webpages need to be as flexible as possible to design
whereas is ok in the community area to have a more standard layout.
PW is PERFECT for me, Drupal has limits (even with modules), a main
reason for my unhappiness (and yes, I know how to make my own templates)
Organization:I am making a brochure style Webpage, PW is perfect here.
(Drupal plays it's role when having millions of pages, which needs different
organizations, like automatic menus, Taxonomy, views.
Drupal needs 10000000+ clicks for installation. And for every new project
the same mess again. PW can be adapted easily.
Membership fun (forums, galleries, friending):
Drupal is good, PW has nothing like that
E-Commerce: Drupal has unfinished stuff, PW nothing.
I don't blame PW for its limitation with membership management and E-Commerce.
Those limitation is also a strenght and beauty because PW is not feature-overloaded and easy
to handle. (A reason for me to have arrived here!)
And there are pefect solutions for that existing already, like the IP_Board and Magento.
I am now thinking of combining the specialists in it's fields like PW and IP_Board
to have the best of both worlds that would by far more manageable than Drupal
with its modules.
What about using the fine grained Bulletin Board membership membership management
and use this to access users to PW content (and editors and admins to the PW backend).
Isn't it easier to write a "bridge" module than adding membership features
to PW and trying to re-invent the wheel? The IP_Board has a strong API for authentification.
(This site is also using the IP_Board.)
Which means that users register and login to the board to have access to
PW privileges also (through synchronizing the user base or bypassing the PW auth).
That would be perfectly bypassing the PW limit of not having a fine grained
frontend user (users level1,2,3) and backend users (editors, admins).
(I a same way e-commerce functionality could be added with another auth-"bridge".)
Is there something in PW (a module?) I have overlooked that does this already?
Otherwise I would like to post this here as a starting point for ideas and discussion.
Thanks for reading all this. I am very curious about your opinions.
