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" />

// AND ALSO

$imagedata = file_get_contents($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?

 

Thanks,

thomas

Strange update:

 

$pdf->save();

shows the images, but

$pdf->download();

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

Thanks,

thomas

Greeting,

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'

<?php

$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' => '');

$mpdf->WriteHTML($stylesheet,1);

$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>";
$mpdf->WriteHTML($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).

I'm trying to use this module to create a PDF of a page on my website. I've tried following along with this thread and the tutorials, etc on Github but I'm still having trouble getting it to work correctly. The page in question is vector.houseofdeadleg.co.uk. If you click on the button the pdf downloads but only includes a header and footer, and any text on the page. I can't get the images to be included.

I have this installed on PW3 and my supposed pages2pdf link simply loads the page with the get variable specified ={page.id}, not as a PDF. What could be the matter?

Does anybody know how to solve with Pages2Pdf second page content top margin?, I attach an image so you can see that the paragraph hasn't got any padding or margin although is set.

see the docs and examples on that page: https://mpdf.github.io/reference/mpdf-functions/addpagebyarray.html

$mpdf->AddPageByArray(array(
    'orientation' => 'L',
    'mgl' => '50',
    'mgr' => '50',
    'mgt' => '50',
    'mgb' => '50',
    'mgh' => '10',
    'mgf' => '10',
    ));

mgt = page margin from the top (where regular text starts, in the example it would start 50mm below the top)

mgh = margin for the header (where the header text ends, in the example it would end 10mm from the top)

looks fine to me. try it with an empty pdf and the most simple headers & texts possible. maybe your header is just too large and it cannot shrink it (because it's not intended).

mpdf is often trial&error ;)

The page you try to download the PDF from (the given ID via get parameter) must:

  • Be viewable for the current user
  • Its template must be allowed to create PDFs (see the module config)

Otherwise you should debug around this line:

Did you check the settings in the WirePDF module? You can define the margin there, which should be the same for all pages. If it is not working on just one page, there might be a problem with the markup. Maybe you can introduce some manual page breaks for testing this, please see the mpdf documentation for this feature.

Hello there,

I tried to use SVG files in image tags and some of the vector paths are "destroyed" and everything in the SVG is black.

Then in tried inlining the SVG:

if( $img->ext == "svg")
    echo "<div class'card__img'>".file_get_contents($img->filename)."</div>";
else
    echo "<img class='card__img' src='{$img->url}'>";

This outputs a small icon with a red "X" … meaning; "file not found" … I guess.

Before one of the icons there was this line in the PDF:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

So this means the module found the file but did not render the content.

(… and YES, I saw there is a module "ImageRasterizer", but unfortunately it requires Imagemagick and the pecl imagick extension.)

hi alf and welcome to the forum

did you read the docs of mpdf regarding svg? https://mpdf.github.io/what-else-can-i-do/images.html

maybe there is some helpful information..

@bernhard

No, but I read the PDF (http://www.mpdfonline.com/repos/mpdfmanual.pdf) and as far as I can see it has the same content … how ever … SVGs "should" work.

So the question is if there is a problem with the module or with my installation or who knows? … if nothing works, I will disable SVG files and I will use PNGs instead …

Just in case someone else encounters the same problem:

I had to migrate a whole website to PW and during tests I imported around 200 pages. Now I wanted to delete them and start the real import process. To get rid of the test pages I tried to delete them with adrians AdminActions, but got an error message and nothing was deleted:

Error: Call to a member function path() on a non-object (line 261 of /xxx/site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/site/modules/Pages2Pdf/Pages2Pdf.module) 

I had to detach the template in question in Pages2Pdf settings. Then it worked and I was able to delete the pages.

Same error with a ListerPro Action(Delete), so I asume it's a problem with Pages2Pdf...

I've just added this module to a dev site and when trying to call the module for rendering I'm getting an error – Parse Error: syntax error, unexpected ',' (line 8910 of /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/xxx/site/modules/WirePDF/mpdf/mpdf.php)

 

Additional:

Looking at WirePDF module, it was saying I had two versions, one in the Pages2PDF folder and one separate one, I think one might be a Handover from a previous attempt to use teh same module. I deleted the Pages2PDF folder and the WirePDF one and did a fresh install, now I get teh error message  Compile Error: 'break' not in the 'loop' or 'switch' context (line 2416 of /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/xxx/site/modules/Pages2Pdf/mpdf/classes/svg.php)

What PHP version are you using? These kind of errors make me guess that mpdf is not compatible with your PHP version. Can you try to use the dev branch of the module via GitHub?

I have this

$pdf = $modules->get('Pages2Pdf')->render(array(
  'title' => 'PDF',
  'markup' => '<a href=\'{url}\' target=\'_blank\'>{title}</a>',
  'page_id' => '',
));

$content .= <<<EOT
<script type="text/javascript">
  $("h1").append(" <small>[$pdf]</small>");</script>
</script>
EOT;

which outputs to /?pdf={pid} but clicking the link just opens the current page in a new tab, no PDF.

Also having a problem with images..

On some pages the PDF shows the image, on other pages the image is missing.

<img src="<?= $page->navimg->url ?>" width="220"/>

try outputting the image url as plaintext

<p><?= $yourimage->url ?></p>

also check the return setting of your images field. it can be set as array or single image. if it is set as array you would have to define wich image to show (eg $yourimages->first()->url )

Hi bernhard,

thank you for the hint.  The image field is set as single element.
 

  <td colspan="1" style="padding:15px">
    <img src="<?= $page->navimg->url; ?>" width="220"/>
    <p><?= $page->navimg->url ?></p>
  </td>

something between ..

<?php if ($page->images->count > 0) : ?>
<table>
  <tr>
  <?php
    $gallery = $page->images;
    $gallery = $gallery->slice(0,4);
   foreach ($gallery as $image): ?>
    <td>
      <img src="<?= $image->size(200, 200)->url ?>" width="200" height="200"/>
    </td>
  <?php endforeach; ?>
  </tr>
</table>
<?php endif; ?>

 

template part:

<?php 
$optionspdf = array(
  'title' => 'Datenblatt',
  'markup' => '<a class="uk-button gaming" href="{url}" download>{title}</a>',
  'pageFormat' => 'A4'
);
echo $modules->get('Pages2Pdf')->render($optionspdf);
?>

 

result:

@maxf5 Can you check if the image is existing on your hard drive by looking at the file in /site/assets/files? Recently I had a problem in ProcessWire that my thumbnails were not getting generated correctly if I was using numbers like 100,200,300,400 for the dimensions. Strangely it worked by using other dimensions like 110, 390 etc.

      This is a new module that 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) 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.
      Beta release
      Note that I consider this a Beta release. Since the module is relatively aggressive in deleting some caches, I would advise you to install in on a test environment before using it on a live site.
      Let me know if you're getting any errors, have trouble using the module or if you have suggestions for improvement!
      In particular, can someone let me know if this module causes any problems with the ProCache module? I don't own or use it, so I can't check. As far as I can tell, ProCache uses a folder inside the cache directory to cache static pages, so my module should be able to clear the ProCache site cache as well, I'd appreciate it if someone can test that for me.
      Future plans
      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!

      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)
      - 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="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="statistics" data-src="/path/to/your/statistic/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing" data-src="/path/to/your/mareketing/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="external_media" data-src="/path/to/your/external-media/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing">console.log("Inline scripts are also working!");</script> The type has to be "optin" 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> This module is still in development, but we already use it on several production websites.
      You find it here: https://github.com/blaueQuelle/privacywire/tree/master
      Download: https://github.com/blaueQuelle/privacywire/archive/master.zip
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂

      Admin Page Tree Multiple Sorting
      ClassName: ProcessPageListMultipleSorting
      Extend the ordinary sort of children of a template in the admin page tree with multiple properties. For each template, you can define your own rule. Write each template (template-name) in a row, followed by a colon and then the additional field names for sorting.
      Example: All children of the template "blog" to be sorted in descending order according to the date of creation, then descending by modification date, and then by title. Type:
      blog: -created, -modified, title  Installation
      Copy the files for this module to /site/modules/ProcessPageListMultipleSorting/ In admin: Modules > Check for new modules. Install Module "Admin Page Tree Multible Sorting". Alternative in ProcessWire 2.4+
      Login to ProcessWire backend and go to Modules Click tab "New" and enter Module Class Name: "ProcessPageListMultipleSorting" Click "Download and Install"   Compatibility   I have currently tested the module only under PW 2.6+, but think that it works on older versions too. Maybe someone can give a feedback.     Download   PW-Repo: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-page-list-multiple-sorting/ GitHub: https://github.com/FlipZoomMedia/Processwire-ProcessPageListMultipleSorting     I hope someone can use the module. Have fun and best regards, David

      Hello,
      this module can publish content of a Processwire page on a Facebook page, triggered by saving the Processwire page.
      To set it up, configure the module with a Facebook app ID, secret and a Page ID. Following is additional configuration on Facebook for developers:
      Minimum Required Facebook App configuration:
      on Settings -> Basics, provide the App Domains, provide the Site URL, on Settings -> Advanced, set the API version (has been tested up to v3.3), add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "https://www.example.com/processwire/page/" to field Valid OAuth Redirect URIs. This module is configurable as follows:
      Templates: posts can take place only for pages with the defined templates. On/Off switch: specify a checkbox field that will not allow the post if checked. Specify a message and/or an image for the post.
      Usage
      edit the desired PW page and save; it will post right after the initial Facebook log in and permission granting. After that, an access token is kept.
       
      Download
      PW module directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/auto-fb-post/ Github: https://github.com/kastrind/AutoFbPost   Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is utilized.
