Module: Process Changelog

Recommended Posts

@adrian, I'm not seeing that issue here. Any chance you could check your login page for a hidden input with name "javascript" and value "1"? This is how LoginHistory knows that you've got JS enabled, so if that's not there, then it's probably going to report it wrong.

Then again, if that doesn't exist, it shouldn't be able to get screen and window dimensions either (are those missing too?)

You're not using a custom login form, are you? :)

Hey @teppo - no idea why, but logins are now showing fine in Chrome. It's weird because yesterday it wasn't just my login attempts that were showing JS disabled and no flash info. 

I'll keep an eye on it.

Sorry to bother you!

Thanks for letting me know. Self-correcting issues, what fun :P

I have a 3.0.62 site running the RenoTheme.

Even when ChangeLog is installed there is no link under the Setup Tab.

I can confirm ChangeLog can be found in the tree under Admin > Setup

With the Changelog activated I start receiving out of memory errors with the PW Backup:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of XXXX bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 20480 bytes) in //www-office/wire/core/WireDatabaseBackup.php on line 1269

Uninstalling Changelog makes the backups run fine again.

ProcessWire 3.0.125 ,
Changelog   1.5.5
PHP 7.2 Apache 2.4
256 MB Memory

Is anyone else seeing this?

Update: I found out from a backup (when it worked) that the plug-in can collect huge amounts of data. I moved the info over to GitHub, with the details.

I think this might be the source of something that @GhostRider was experiencing - perhaps he can confirm whether uninstalling this module fixes the backup problem.

the fix is temporary, i fear - with the wrong settings the problem re-occurs. My log was becoming huge, probably only because of a cron-job cleaning up. (80.000 entries with lots of MB), all built up within a week.

If there would be a setting not to log system actions (or log them differently, maybe shorter) it would be easier to know what's going on with with the editors because their changes can be stored longer (not so many entries normally)?

Hi Teppo, 

I do not remember correctly, but maybe after switching a site from 7.0.x to PHP 7.1.x I started to get a lot of these:

PHP Notice: Undefined index: Previous page URL in .../ProcessChangelog/ProcessChangelog.module:810

Could it be possible to get rid of these?

Hi, thanks for the great module! Will be default in all my next PW-sites!

I wonder if there is anyway to setup a mail trigger if a page gets unpublished/published?

Try hooking into: https://processwire.com/api/ref/pages/published/ and https://processwire.com/api/ref/pages/unpublished/ and add a wireMail call as needed.

Can anyone confirm this is working with PW 3+ and how I access the ChangeLog with the V3 UI?

I have ChangeLog installed but see nothing listed under the Setup tab where my other Modules are listed.

According to the instructions...

Quote

When you install this module, it creates a new page into the Admin called Changelog (Settings > Changelog). This page contains a list of changes to pages on the site since the moment this module was installed. By clicking the more link next to each row reveals more information about that particular change.

I think this applies to PW UI pre UI Kit as the latest version only has a navigation structure of

  • Pages
  • Setup
  • Modules
  • Access

Cheers

Hi Teppo,

Thank you very much for your great work! I wonder if it would be possible to prevent a user to be logged. Let me explain, one of our sites has a synchronisation process which use a user 'synchro'. This automated process does not need to be logged, since there are a lot of changes made by this process. We only want to log 'regular administrative' users.

I suppose I can hook myself over your own hook, but I am not sure how to proceed.

I would like to something like:

if (thisUser or theseUsers) don't log.

Latest version adds support for ignoring specific users and/or roles, so that may help a bit. There's no clean way to figure out what is a system action, so I think ignoring the guest user (or some other user/role you use to perform these automated actions) is the best solution we have at the moment.

Shorter duration for log rows matching some rule (such as a specific role/user) could be a potential future addition as well, in case there's demand for that sort of thing 🙂

It's been a while (sorry!) so hopefully this has been resolved already. If not, let me know (preferably via GitHub issues, these are much easier for me to keep track of).

If this is still occurring, please open a GitHub issue (if possible). I've just tested the module with both Reno and (old) default admin theme's, and was unable to reproduce this. I'm not entirely sure of the specifics, but it seems that adding any published (and non-hidden) page under /processwire/setup/ brings it up in the menu, so not really sure where to start, except that perhaps make sure that you're not using any hooks / modules that might somehow alter menu behaviour.

It would be best if you could try this on a blank install: if the issue occurs there, it should be much easier for me to reproduce as well. If not, it's probably something specific to your current setup, which means that we'd have to start by figuring out what exactly is going on there 🙂

Latest version (1.7.1) has two new configuration options (ProcessChangelogHooks config settings): ignored roles and ignored users. I think one of these should help with this 🙂

I realise it's been a while since this was posted (again: sorry!) but while some sort of email trigger might be an interesting future addition, at the moment what Adrian suggested is probably the fastest and easiest way to achieve this. That, or perhaps Field Change Notifier in case you prefer a GUI solution 🙂

Hi @teppo - Happy New Year.

I wonder what you think about removing the "by " prefix from the username. I have a lot of users on one particular site and I often want to find a user by making use of the browser's autoselection when you start typing when a select field is focused. It still works as is, but it means I need to type: "by ajones" instead of just "ajones".

Thanks for considering. 

Actually, on a related note, it would be nice to be able to limit the shown users to certain roles, or at least those that have admin page-edit permissions.

Makes sense to me. It's removed in the latest release, though I also had to add a new label text before the input so that the meaning is still obvious.

Just to clarify: you mean that there would be a new filter option for displaying only users with specific role / permission? If so, this does sound like a good idea. I'll add it as a new enhancement issue for now, it'll require a bit more thought (the filter GUI probably needs a bigger overhaul soon).

Actually, I was thinking it would be an option in the modules' config settings so that we can completely exclude users with frontend roles, or the "guest" user as appropriate. But maybe an extra filter would actually be better so that those actions are still logged.

If you check ProcessChangelogHooks settings, there are already options for ignoring specific roles and users, so the part about ignoring "guest" user is doable. Permission based filtering is not available, and I'm not entirely sure if it should be; perhaps a hook would be a better solution for this kind of granularity 🙂

Anyway, I'll keep the live filtering option on my todo list, as it seems like a useful addition.

Just a quick heads-up that the hook I mentioned is now implemented in the latest release. There's a new method called ProcessChangelogHooks::shouldLogPageEvent() for this, and all the existing checks have been moved there as well:

    /**
     * Should we log this Page event?
     *
     * @param Page $page
     * @param Field|null $field
     * @param string $operation
     * @return bool
     */
    protected function ___shouldLogPageEvent(Page $page, ?Field $field, $operation) {

      DEPRECATED
      I'm using this module in several projects, but it will likely not see any updates in the future. I'm not happy with it and I'm looking for ways to develop better solutions. RockTabulator was my first try, but I'm also not 100% happy with that. The tabulator library is great, but my module implementation is not. I hope to get a good solution soon, but it will be a lot of work...
      ---
      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.

      Support: Please note that this module might not be as easy and plug&play as many other modules. It needs a good understanding of agGrid (and JavaScript in general) and it likely needs some looks into the code to get all the options. Please understand that I can not provide free support for every request here in the forum. I try to answer all questions that might also help others or that might improve the module but for individual requests I offer paid support (please contact me via PM).
       
      Use Cases / Examples:
      Colored grid cells, Icons, Links etc. The Grid also has a "batcher" feature built in that helps communicating with the server via AJAX and managing resource intensive tasks in batches:

      Filters, PW panel links and instant reload on panel close:

      You can combine the grid with a chart library like I did with the (outdated) RockDataTables module:

      Hi there. I wrote a custom module for one of my projects. In fact I maybe want to use my module in other projects too. In order to be variable and customizable  I need to implement some custom hooks into my module. So I can afterwards hook into the my functions in order to modify them to match the needs of the new project.
      I tried simply defining functions with the '__' prefix. But that did not work. I'm imagining something like the following:
      <?php class MyClass { public function ___someFunction() { // Do something } } // ready.php $this->addHookBefore('MyClass::someFunction', function($event) { // some customization }); Is there a way to accomplish that? 
    • By adrian
      Hi everyone,
      Here's a new module that I have been meaning to build for a long time.
      http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-admin-actions/
      https://github.com/adrianbj/ProcessAdminActions
       
      What does it do?
      Do you have a bunch of admin snippets laying around, or do you recreate from them from scratch every time you need them, or do you try to find where you saw them in the forums, or on the ProcessWire Recipes site?
      Admin Actions lets you quickly create actions in the admin that you can use over and over and even make available to your site editors (permissions for each action are assigned to roles separately so you have full control over who has access to which actions).
       
      Included Actions
      It comes bundled with several actions and I will be adding more over time (and hopefully I'll get some PRs from you guys too). You can browse and sort and if you have @tpr's Admin on Steroid's datatables filter feature, you can even filter based on the content of all columns. 

      The headliner action included with the module is: PageTable To RepeaterMatrix which fully converts an existing (and populated) PageTable field to either a Repeater or RepeaterMatrix field. This is a huge timesaver if you have an existing site that makes heavy use of PageTable fields and you would like to give the clients the improved interface of RepeaterMatrix.
      Copy Content To Other Field
      This action copies the content from one field to another field on all pages that use the selected template.
      Copy Field Content To Other Page
      Copies the content from a field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Copy Repeater Items To Other Page
      Add the items from a Repeater field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Copy Table Field Rows To Other Page
      Add the rows from a Table field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Create Users Batcher
      Allows you to batch create users. This module requires the Email New User module and it should be configured to generate a password automatically.
      Delete Unused Fields
      Deletes fields that are not used by any templates.
      Delete Unused Templates
      Deletes templates that are not used by any pages.
      Email Batcher
      Lets you email multiple addresses at once.
      Field Set Or Search And Replace
      Set field values, or search and replace text in field values from a filtered selection of pages and fields.
      FTP Files to Page
      Add files/images from a folder to a selected page.
      Page Active Languages Batcher
      Lets you enable or disable active status of multiple languages on multiple pages at once.
      Page Manipulator
      Uses an InputfieldSelector to query pages and then allows batch actions on the matched pages.
      Page Table To Repeater Matrix
      Fully converts an existing (and populated) PageTable field to either a Repeater or RepeaterMatrix field.
      Template Fields Batcher
      Lets you add or remove multiple fields from multiple templates at once.
      Template Roles Batcher
      Lets you add or remove access permissions, for multiple roles and multiple templates at once.
      User Roles Permissions Batcher
      Lets you add or remove permissions for multiple roles, or roles for multiple users at once.
       
      Creating a New Action
      If you create a new action that you think others would find useful, please add it to the actions subfolder of this module and submit a PR. If you think it is only useful for you, place it in /site/templates/AdminActions/ so that it doesn't get lost on module updates.
      A new action file can be as simple as this:
      class UnpublishAboutPage extends ProcessAdminActions { protected function executeAction() { $p = $this->pages->get('/about/'); $p->addStatus(Page::statusUnpublished); $p->save(); return true; } } Each action:
      class must extend "ProcessAdminActions" and the filename must match the class name and end in ".action.php" like: UnpublishAboutPage.action.php the action method must be: executeAction() As you can see there are only a few lines needed to wrap the actual API call, so it's really worth the small extra effort to make an action.
      Obviously that example action is not very useful. Here is another more useful one that is included with the module. It includes $description, $notes, and $author variables which are used in the module table selector interface. It also makes use of the defineOptions() method which builds the input fields used to gather the required options before running the action.
      class DeleteUnusedFields extends ProcessAdminActions { protected $description = 'Deletes fields that are not used by any templates.'; protected $notes = 'Shows a list of unused fields with checkboxes to select those to delete.'; protected $author = 'Adrian Jones'; protected $authorLinks = array( 'pwforum' => '985-adrian', 'pwdirectory' => 'adrian-jones', 'github' => 'adrianbj', ); protected function defineOptions() { $fieldOptions = array(); foreach($this->fields as $field) { if ($field->flags & Field::flagSystem || $field->flags & Field::flagPermanent) continue; if(count($field->getFieldgroups()) === 0) $fieldOptions[$field->id] = $field->label ? $field->label . ' (' . $field->name . ')' : $field->name; } return array( array( 'name' => 'fields', 'label' => 'Fields', 'description' => 'Select the fields you want to delete', 'notes' => 'Note that all fields listed are not used by any templates and should therefore be safe to delete', 'type' => 'checkboxes', 'options' => $fieldOptions, 'required' => true ) ); } protected function executeAction($options) { $count = 0; foreach($options['fields'] as $field) { $f = $this->fields->get($field); $this->fields->delete($f); $count++; } $this->successMessage = $count . ' field' . _n('', 's', $count) . ' ' . _n('was', 'were', $count) . ' successfully deleted'; return true; } }  
      This defineOptions() method builds input fields that look like this:

      Finally we use $options array in the executeAction() method to get the values entered into those options fields to run the API script to remove the checked fields.
      There is one additional method that I didn't outline called: checkRequirements() - you can see it in action in the PageTableToRepeaterMatrix action. You can use this to prevent the action from running if certain requirements are not met.
      At the end of the executeAction() method you can populate $this->successMessage, or $this->failureMessage which will be returned after the action has finished.
       
      Populating options via URL parameters
      You can also populate the option parameters via URL parameters. You should split multiple values with a “|” character.
      You can either just pre-populate options:
      http://mysite.dev/processwire/setup/admin-actions/options?action=TemplateFieldsBatcher&templates=29|56&fields=219&addOrRemove=add
      or you can execute immediately:
      http://mysite.dev/processwire/setup/admin-actions/execute?action=TemplateFieldsBatcher&templates=29|56&fields=219&addOrRemove=add

      Note the “options” vs “execute” as the last path before the parameters.
       
      Automatic Backup / Restore
      Before any action is executed, a full database backup is automatically made. You have a few options to run a restore if needed:
      Follow the Restore link that is presented after an action completes Use the "Restore" submenu: Setup > Admin Actions > Restore Move the restoredb.php file from the /site/assets/cache/AdminActions/ folder to the root of your site and load in the browser Manually restore using the AdminActionsBackup.sql file in the /site/assets/cache/AdminActions/ folder I think all these features make it very easy to create custom admin data manipulation methods that can be shared with others and executed using a simple interface without needing to build a full Process Module custom interface from scratch. I also hope it will reduce the barriers for new ProcessWire users to create custom admin functionality.
      Please let me know what you think, especially if you have ideas for improving the interface, or the way actions are defined.

      This module is (yet another) way for implementing a cookie management solution.
      Of course there are several other possibilities:
      - https://processwire.com/talk/topic/22920-klaro-cookie-consent-manager/
      - https://github.com/webmanufaktur/CookieManagementBanner
      - https://github.com/johannesdachsel/cookiemonster
      - https://www.oiljs.org/
      - ... and so on ...
      In this module you can configure which kind of cookie categories you want to manage:

      You can also enable the support for respecting the Do-Not-Track (DNT) header to don't annoy users, who already decided for all their browsing experience.
      Currently there are four possible cookie groups:
      - Necessary (always enabled)
      - Functional
      - Statistics
      - Marketing
      - External Media
      All groups can be renamed, so feel free to use other cookie group names. I just haven't found a way to implement a "repeater like" field as configurable module field ...
      When you want to load specific scripts ( like Google Analytics, Google Maps, ...) only after the user's content to this specific category of cookies, just use the following script syntax:
      <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="statistics" data-src="/path/to/your/statistic/script.js"></script> <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing" data-src="/path/to/your/mareketing/script.js"></script> <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="external_media" data-src="/path/to/your/external-media/script.js"></script> <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing">console.log("Inline scripts are also working!");</script> The data-attributes (data-type and data-category) are required to get recognized by PrivacyWire. the data-attributes are giving hints, how the script shall be loaded, if the data-category is within the cookie consents of the user. These scripts are loaded asynchronously after the user made the decision.
      If you want to give the users the possibility to change their consent, you can use the following Textformatter:
      [[privacywire-choose-cookies]] It's planned to add also other Textformatters to opt-out of specific cookie groups or delete the whole consent cookie.
      You can also add a custom link to output the banner again with a link / button with following class:
      <a href="#" class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</a> <button class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</button>  
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂

      As we often use Matomo (former known as Piwik) instead of Google Analytics we wanted to embed Matomo not only in the template code but also via the ProcessWire backend.
      That's why I developed a tiny module for the implementation.
      The module provides the possibility to connect to an existing Matomo installation with the classical site tracking and also via the Matomo Tag Manager.
      If you have also PrivacyWire installed, you can tell MatomoWire to only load the script, if the user has accepted cookies via PrivacyWire.
      To offer an Opt-Out solution you can choose between the simple Opt-Out iFrame, delivered by your Matomo installation, or a button to choose cookies via PrivacyWire.
      You'll find the module both in the module directory and via github:
      ProcessWire Module Directory MatomoWire @ GitHub MatomoWire @ Packagist ->installable via composer require blauequelle/matomowire I'm looking forward to hear your feedback!
