Could it be possible to import actual list of page titles (one title one line) in some textarea and get those new page inputs populated with those? We should choose a template for all those somehow too... Maybe make the "title" field in crete tab a textarea and apply all the other settings to the list (name autogenerated)?

This module might be useful for you:

Use the Create/Overwrite mode.

Thank you! Both ways should work. Adrians module seems faster to use in my case as it does not require preparing csv file. But it has some complexities in working with. You cannot add a list of pages to a page which already has children with subchildren. Or maybe i am getting it wrong. I will ask in the apropriate thread, if you don't mind, Adrian.

Great to have many ways to go.

You're right about the sub/grand children issue with that module when in create/overwrite mode, but if you switch to edit mode you can still quickly add new pages in this scenario. But, yes we should take this conversation over here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/6102-batch-child-editor/ now. I'd be happy to modify the module if you have suggestions for improvements that would help your workflow without compromising the need to protect from accidental data loss.

CSV import doesn't require a csv file, you can simply use the manual textfield ... enter title like by line... I found to be the fastest way to create pages.

This module stated that it is not compatible with PW2.5 but so far haven't seen any issue with ProcessWire 2.5.21 dev.

I'm sure i'm not the only one using this module so updating the compatiblity with 2.5 looks fairly save to me.

Thank for this awesome module.

IMHO this awesome module demands one more action - "Change Field".

Mass field change is smth that I do 100x more often than lets say mass template change.

Currently I have to PHP each new mass field change task.

Just wondering - how do you solve this problem currently?

You can use ListerPro to change the value of fields. We use this a lot (works really great). Wouldn't argue that it would be a nice addition to Batcher too :)

FYI, tried this on 2.6 the other day. I wanted to delete thousands of pages (finding them by the template name). It didn't seem to do anything. I got it done with a script and didn't go back to investigate but I thought I'd ask if it ought to be able to do that.

The "toggle all" checkbox doesn't seem to be working.

I had a play around with the JS and changing

$('input.toggle_all').click(function()...

to

$(document).on('click', 'input.toggle_all', function()...

seemed to do the trick.

Hi all!

On a fresh installed PW 2.7 I added a few pages and subpages to the tree. I installed the Batcher module and used it to batch unpublish or publish pages selected by template=basic-page. No problems so far.

But now I made a mistake. Having found that the pages I wanted to unpublish all had an ID greater than 1013, I tried the selector id>1013. Obviously some pages related to the Batcher module matched this selector and went unpublished too. The link to the Batcher module (that was in the menu Setup before) had disappeared, so I could not use it anymore.

Now I tried to uninstall Batcher and reinstall it. I got this error message:

Unable to install module 'ProcessBatcher': SQLSTATE[23000]: Integrity constraint violation: 1062 Duplicate entry 'batcher-22' for key 'name_parent_id'

So my questions are:
Is this an incompatibility of the Batcher module with PW 2.7?
And, more important: What can I do?

If you've unpublished the batcher's admin page, so it can probably not be cleanly uninstalled, so the page remains. On reinstall it's trying to recreate the still existing admin site and that fails. Just make sure you remove this page (Admin>Setup>Batcher) before reinstalling the module.

Thanks for the fast reply!

Deleting the page Admin>Setup>Batcher was successful after unlocking Admin>Setup for editing.

But a new install is refused like before: Same error message...

Hello

Is anyone using the Batcher Module successfully in Processwire 3.07?

I'm trying to change the template on several pages and the Actions... link at the foot of the page doesn't appear to be working. I've tried on Firefox and Chrome in Windows and Safari on OSX and it's the same result in each browser.

John


I've just noticed that on my Macbook the version of Processwire is 3.03 but batcher still not working in that version either.

I can confirm it doesn't work out of the box. Batcher is using Fancybox which doesn't seem to be included in ProcessWire 3.0.x. You can either file an issue or strip out the Fancybox stuff (1, 2). Or both :)

Thank you for replying. I have filed an issue but not confident about stripping out Fancybox.

Hi all

batcher seems not to work with PW 3.0.8.

You search pages, but adding actions does not work. This seems to be the case with other modules as well, that one can't add actions.

Your help is much appreciated.

Same for PW 3.0.15

Are there any news on that?

Thanks.

Hi ottogal,

Sorry for my late response. I currently don't have time to update Batcher, at least not for the next month. The module needs a rewrite because a lot changed since this was released, for example:

  • Native support of ProcessWire's modal
  • Make use of InputfieldSelector to build the selector strings
  • ...

I hope to update the module at the end of may, but since I don't know the release date of Pw 3 I can't promise... unless someone else takes over.

Cheers

No pressure, but eagerly looking forward to using Batcher in PW3. In PW2 it was my go-to module for quick and easy bulk deletion of pages generated during site testing. Lister Pro can do that too but needs more clicks.

Please keep the option of typing a selector too. :)

      Please use the new RockFinder2
      #######################
      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      TrelloWire
      This is a module that allows you to automatically create Trello cards for ProcessWire pages and update them when the pages are updated. This allows you to setup connected workflows. Card properties and change handling behaviour can be customized through the extensive module configuration. Every action the module performs is hookable, so you can modify when and how cards are created as much as you need to. The module also contains an API-component that makes it easy to make requests to the Trello API and build your own connected ProcessWire-Trello workflows.
      Features
      All the things the module can do for you without any custom code: Create a new card on Trello whenever a page is added or published (you can select applicable templates). Configure the target board, target list, name and description for new cards. Add default labels and checklists to the card. Update the card whenever the page is updated (optional). When the status of the card changes (published / unpublished, hidden / unhidden, trashed / restored or deleted), move the card to a different list or archive or delete it (configurable). You can extend this through hooks in many ways: Modifiy when and how cards are created. Modify the card properties (Target board & list, title, description, et c.) before they are sent to Trello. Create your own workflows by utilizing an API helper class with many convenient utility methods to access the Trello API directly. Feedback & Future Plans
      Let me know what you think! In particular:
      If you find any bugs report them here or on Github, I'll try to fix them. This module was born out of a use-case for a client project where we manage new form submissions through Trello. I'm not sure how many use-cases there are for this module. If you do use it, tell me about it! The Trello API is pretty extensive, I'll try to add some more helper methods to the TrelloWireApi class (let me know if you need anything in particular). I'll think about how the module can support different workflows that include Twig – talk to me if you have a use-case! Next steps could be a dashboard to manage pages that are connected to a Trello card, or a new section in the settings tab to manage the Trello connection. But it depends on whether there is any interest in this 🙂 Links

      Process Cache Control
      This module provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Clear the ProCache page render cache (if your site is using ProCache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Plans for improvements
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      PrevNextTabs Module
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/PrevNextTabs
      Processwire helper modules for adding page navigation within the editor.
      Overview
      This is a very simple module that adds Previous and Next links inline with the tabs on the page editor. Hovering over the tab shows the title of the previous or next page (using the admin's built in jqueryUI tooltips.)
      Usage
      This module is typically used during development where you or your editors need to traverse through pages for the purpose of proofing, flagging and/or commenting. Rather than returning to the page tree or lister, they can navigate with these links.
      Warnings
      If you are using PW version 2.6.1 or later, the system will prevent you from leaving the page if you have unsaved edits.
      For earlier versions, to avoid accidentally losing changes made to a page that might occur if a user accidentally clicks on one of these, make sure to have the Form Save Reminder module installed.
