Is there an easy way to remove the space occupied by the header? It's probably me or my setup but I can't seem to remove the space.

Maybe you can set the headerMargin setting to zero in the WirePDF module configuration? Do you print the header?

Hi @Wanze, i tried it all:


<img src="<?=$mandant->teaserbild->first()->height('100')->url;?>" width="<?=$mandant->teaserbild->first()->height('100')->width;?>" height="100" alt="logo" />

// AND

<img src="<?=$mandant->teaserbild->first()->height('100')->httpUrl;?>" width="<?=$mandant->teaserbild->first()->height('100')->width;?>" height="100" alt="logo" />


$imagedata = file_get_contents($mandant->teaserbild->first()->height('100')->filename);
$base64Img = "data:image/png;base64," . base64_encode($imagedata);
<img src="<?=$base64Img;?>" width="<?=$mandant->teaserbild->first()->height('100')->width;?>" height="100" alt="logo" />


but nothing works. How do I enable debug mode (showImageErrors) for the pdf module?

Strange update:



shows the images, but


doesn't. Not sure what's going on here but I can work around that.

I need help to use a font 'dejavusans'? I have problems with the display Croatian letters š, đ, č, ć, ž.

I use

$pdf = $modules->get('WirePDF');

but I can not set the font 'dejavusans'


$pdf = $modules->get('WirePDF');

$mpdf = $pdf->mpdf;

$pdfPath = $config->paths->files . $page->id . "/" . $page->title.'.pdf';
$stylesheet = file_get_contents($config->paths->templates.'/pages2pdf/styles.css');

$wireSendOptions = array('exit' => false, 'forceDownload' => false, 'downloadFilename' => '');


$html = "";
$html .= "<html lang='hr'><head><meta http-equiv=\"Content-Type\" content=\"text/html; charset=utf-8\" /></head><body>";
$html .= '<table border=0>';
$html .= 'text example š đ č ć ž';
$html .= "</body></html>";

$mpdf->Output($pdfPath, 'F');
wireSendFile($pdfPath, $wireSendOptions );

Wanze, yes thanks. I was missing the configuration options on the WirePDF module (was checking only the Pages2PDF module configuration).

      Module: Auto Smush PDF
      Compress PDF files automatically on upload,  manually by clicking the link for each file and in bulk mode for all PDF files.
      In Automatic mode PDF files that are uploaded are automatically compressed.
      In Manual mode "Compress" link will be present. This allows manual compression of the individual PDF file.
      In Bulk mode all PDF files can be compressed in one click. Will process PDF files sitewide, use with caution! 
      Using https://labstack.com/, free (at the moment) online web service that provides compressing of PDF files. There is no limit in file size and no limit on number of uploaded PDF's. No privacy policy available. 
      EDIT April 30 2017: This module is not working anymore as Labstack removed support for pdf compression.

      After this tutorial you'll have learned how to:
      Build a Process module Make an AJAX request to backend Serve JSON as response Let's say you want to display the latest orders in a dashboard that you can access from admin panel. And you want it to refresh its content with a button click. Most straightforward and proper way (that I know of) is to create a Process module, as they're built for this purpose.
      First, create a directory under /site/modules/, call it ProcessDashboard, and create a file named ProcessDashboard.module under that directory. Following is about the least amount of code you need to create a Process module.
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; class ProcessDashboard extends Process implements Module { public static function getModuleInfo() { return [ 'title' => 'Orders Dashboard', 'summary' => 'Shows latest orders', 'version' => '0.0.1', 'author' => 'abdus', 'autoload' => true, // to automatically create process page 'page' => [ 'name' => 'order-dashboard', 'title' => 'Orders', 'template' => 'admin' ] ]; } public function install() { parent::install(); // to create process page } public function uninstall() { parent::uninstall(); // to the remove process page when uninstalling } public function ___execute() { return 'hello'; } } Once you refresh module cache from Modules > Refresh, you'll see your module. Install it.

      It will create an admin page under admin (/processwire/) and will show up as a new item in top menu, and when you click on it, it will show the markup we've built in execute() function.

      All right, now let's make it do something useful. Let's add create a data list to display latest orders. We'll change execute() function to render a data table.
      public function ___execute() { /* @var $table MarkupAdminDataTable */ $table = $this->modules->MarkupAdminDataTable; $table->setID($this->className . 'Table'); // "#ProcessDashboardTable" $table->headerRow([ 'Product', 'Date', 'Total' ]); // fill the table foreach ($this->getLatest(10) as $order) { $table->row([ $order['title'], $order['date'], $order['total'] ]); } // to refresh items $refreshButton = $this->modules->InputfieldSubmit; $refreshButton->name = 'refresh'; $refreshButton->id = $this->className . 'Refresh'; // "#ProcessDashboardRefresh" $refreshButton->value = 'Refresh'; // label of the button return $table->render() . $refreshButton->render(); } where getLatest() function finds and returns the latest orders (with only title, date and total fields)
      protected function getLatest($limit = 5, $start = 0) { // find last $limit orders, starting from $start $orders = $this->pages->find("template=order, sort=-created, limit=$limit, start=$start"); // Only return what's necessary return $orders->explode(function ($order) { return [ 'title' => $order->title, 'date' => date('Y-m-d h:i:s', $order->created), 'total' => $order->total ]; }); } When you refresh the page, you should see a table like this

      Now we'll make that Refresh button work. When the button is clicked, it will make an AJAX request to ./latest endpoint, which will return a JSON of latest orders. We need some JS to make AJAX request and render new values. Create a JS file ./assets/dashboard.js inside the module directory.
      window.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function () { let refresh = document.querySelector('#ProcessDashboardRefresh'); let table = document.querySelector('#ProcessDashboardTable'); refresh.addEventListener('click', function (e) { // https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web/API/Event/preventDefault e.preventDefault(); // Send a GET request to ./latest // http://api.jquery.com/jquery.getjson/ $.getJSON('./latest', { limit: 10 }, function (data) { // check if data is how we want it // if (data.length) {} etc // it's good to go, update the table updateTable(data); }); }); function renderRow(row) { return `<tr> <td>${row.title}</td> <td>${row.date}</td> <td>${row.total}</td> </tr>`; } function updateTable(rows) { table.tBodies[0].innerHTML = rows.map(renderRow).join(''); } }); And we'll add this to list of JS that runs on backend inside init() function
      public function init() { $scriptUrl = $this->urls->$this . 'assets/dashboard.js'; $this->config->scripts->add($scriptUrl); } Requests to ./latest will be handled by ___executeLatest() function inside the module, just creating the function is enough, PW will do the routing. Here you should notice how we're getting query parameters that are sent with the request.
      // handles ./latest endpoint public function ___executeLatest() { // get limit from request, if not provided, default to 10 $limit = $this->sanitizer->int($this->input->get->limit) ?? 10; return json_encode($this->getRandom($limit)); } Here getRandom() returns random orders to make it look like there's new orders coming in. 
      protected function getRandom($limit = 5) { $orders = $this->pages->find("template=order, sort=random, limit=$limit"); return $orders->explode(function ($order) { return [ 'title' => $order->title, 'date' => date('Y-m-d h:i:s', $order->created), 'total' => $order->total ]; }); } And we're done. When refresh button is clicked, the table is refreshed with new data.
      Here it is in action:

      Little admin helper module: Using this module you can view all template cache settings at once. E.g. cache status, cache time (configurable). Furthermore it adds the functionality to clear the entire template cache or just the template cache for a given template. Note that this may cause a temporary delay for one or more requests while pages are re-cached.

      Hi guys!
      I'm creating a module to manage, edit, publish ... pages. It is very similar to ProcessBatcher.
      In progress 

      Select pages with your mouse like a desktop enviroment. If you press "edit" the selected pages will appear in a lightbox.

      Drag pages to do actions.
      Any feedback is welcome

      I dont know how they work internally, whether they depend on each other, but I'd love to be able to test and buy RepeaterMatrix or Multiplier or Table (or any other) module individually. Whole pack of ProFields modules seems awesome to have, however, being able to buy one for ~$30 --instead of all for $130-- sounds much more affordable and this way I could buy the whole pack part by part in several months and wouldn't think twice. But $130 at once, I can't really justify it (and still havent been able to) just as easily with low (to none) disposable student income.  Or instead, having sales one - twice a year would be great as well.
      One advantage of this change would be allowing more people to buy -> support the development & community -> give feedback -> improve these products. This could also potentially pose a disadvantage where requests from people would increase the headache and time required to respond to all these requests, but this community is more than able to handle that.
      I'm sure there's a reason to why these modules are sold together, and I'd love to hear your side as well, @ryan, (and all other maintainers).
