Dumb Questions 101 for newbies...

Recommended Posts

What is the Submit button for after installing a Module.

I am not entirely sure, if the Green Submit Button is part of the installation process, or only there as part of the uninstall process.

IF it is part of the uninstall process, it might be better served to be contained in the Uninstall Div that pops open, when you check the Uninstall checkbox.

Does it have anything to do with finalizing the Installation process of the module?

I think its for extra setting that are available after module installed!

To confirm then, it's not necessary to click the green submit button to finalize installation of most modules.

My first inclination was that maybe I had to be clicking the green submit to finalize module installation.

Also using the Modules Manager, it would be nice if there were a link on that screen to go directly back to the Modules manager screen.

thanks for the infos. :)

Next up on the 'Dumb Questions' hit parade...

Is there a good tutorial, module or forum topic resource on creating a feature slider?

  • An images slider
  • Or an images featured stories type slider with some text

I'ld love to create this type of content to contribute, granted, I knew how to do it ;)

I posted some instructions for using Galleria: http://processwire.com/talk/topic/2533-first-site-first-problem/?p=24929

If you have other question, just jump in and ask some more.

And your questions are not dumb!  If you are asking it, it's very likely that someone else is also asking the same thing.

      Hi. I'm working on building my first processwire site, and I want to make sure I'm getting it right. I'd appreciate any feedback. 
      I have a `vendor.php` template/model that will contain companies.
      I need to give users the ability to rate (1-5) that vendor. So I think I need to build a `vendor_rating.php` model/template  with fields `rating` (int), `user` (ref), `vendor` (ref), and perhaps a textarea for `review`.  Then, in the vendor template I will call and cache the average vendor rating for display. I don't actually want to display the individual ratings anywhere, so I guess I still need to figure out how to do an ajax call from the front end. 
      Here's the thing. This structure is almost identical to "comments" with only one extra field for the `rating`. So should I just extend that in some way? Or stick to my current path and make a new model/template?

      Note - I've not set this up, I'm not experienced, I'm probably omitting much
      relevant information as a result so this post will be a bit of a work in
      progress. The answer may be on the forum here - If it is I can't tell for lack
      of experience (I've looked).
      I cannot for the life of me get an install to work and I've tried a lot, and
      I've asked others who're also struggling but I'll try posting here before
      another CMS as I've heard it's nice.
      Info about the server : https://gist.github.com/65086fbc7b5dd03abd0f0461b9c0ec8b
      I'm using the `stable` version of Processwire.
      My `htaccess` file is working - you can test here http://rightangle.space/ and
      click on the admin page to see the internal server error.
      Here is the htaccess file https://gist.github.com/3b805b8ab3c7978aca90a6e39773da00
      Here is the /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file https://gist.github.com/2b2f2518ce7df4af4739413bc967cf56

      Hi guys am a complete Noob to Processwire and i have spent the past two weeks reading codes and understanding the structure and concept around it. So i am the type of dev who obesseses about architecture structure before getting to work, and i think my mind is broken due to my limited knowledge on PW. So i will expain my goal.
      I intend to rebuild http://styljunki.com from Wordpress to Processwire because of two reasons.
      1. PW has no templating system meaning no hacks like shortcode or mundane template conventions.
      2. Modules dependency meaning i can leverage on existing modules (easily) e.g wire('moduleName')->method this really appeals to me alot
      However there are certain tasks i want to achieve.
      Concept of Blog vs Pages
      There are some contents which are Post and some which are pages, is there some such dinstinction in PW, I know PW manipulates pages and adds fields but what of Blogs which just take entry and nothing special, I tried my hands on the Blog Module on PW 2.5.8 but it threw some errors.
      Menu Management
      My Client intends to manage menus and from what i have seen ; PW lists all the pages, we were looking for something where we  can simply create menus for the front page and we simply pick those. But if there's a module around I am willing to use/ contribute code if it is neccessary.
      Custom Post
      In Wordpress you can create a custom post and query that, is there any similar thing to that ?
      Unit testing
      PHPUnit Testing in WordPress was a big joke, is there any link to unit test processwire while we work
      Thanks this are my questions
      Also i'd really like to say congrats because, I have spent the 4 years of my life developing with CMS from Joomla,WordPress,ImpressPages and really this is the first time i am really excited about a CMS.
      Working with WordPress as a CMS is a pain in the ass, esp for someone used to MVC frameworks like Zend and Yii. I have searched and searched till i came across your site on CMSCritic and Joss Salinger 's post the rocker blogger (rock on) on how easily he could use it despite no coding experience. I intend to contribute in my way. Keep up the good work guys. Love from Nigeria

      I am a complete noob in PW and have zero knowledge on how to use bootstrap. Just installed a fresh installation of PW with pwbootstrap3 site profile.
      GF's dad ask me to make a website on their new company. Pretty basic business website.
      Tried Wordpress and can't figure out how to make my own themes as GF's dad told me a specific design layout of the front end which is freakin hard to do in WP for a noob like me.
      Using a theme with bit of css modification in WP makes me feel highly unsatisfied still with the results.
      Had to finish the site for atleast in 2 months time.
      Where can I find a complete tutorial step by step guide on how to make a website using just PW or with pwboostrap3 site profile?
      So I can make the website quick. Preferably, the type of tutorial that will just shove the steps straight on my mouth.
      GF's dad look up to me like a PRO I.T.
      Highly Extremely Pressured.

      Hello again, I have question about form builder. I need to create classified site for jobs, where users can publish their listings from front end. I would create backend fields for categories, expiration for ads... And I will create one template page, for examle "add", so that users from front end can choose categories etc. and then publish add (listing). Can It be done with form builder?
