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 module allows you to integrate hCaptcha bot / spam protection into ProcessWire forms. hCaptcha is a great alternative to Google ReCaptcha, especially if you are in the EU and need to comply with privacy regulations.

      The development of this module is sponsored by schwarzdesign.
      The module is built as an Inputfield, allowing you to integrate it into any ProcessWire form you want. It's primarily intended for frontend forms and can be added to Form Builder forms for automatic spam protection. There's a step-by-step guide for adding the hCaptcha widget to Form Builder forms in the README, as well as instructions for API usage.
      Features
      Inputfield that displays an hCaptcha widget in ProcessWire forms. The inputfield verifies the hCaptcha response upon submission, and adds a field error if it is invalid. All hCaptcha configuration options for the widget (theme, display size etc) can be changed through the inputfield configuration, as well as programmatically. hCaptcha script options can be changed through a hook. Error messages can be translated through ProcessWire's site translations. hCaptcha secret keys and site-keys can be set for each individual inputfield or globally in your config.php. Error codes and failures are logged to help you find configuration errors. Please check the README for setup instructions.

      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="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 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: PrivacyWire Git Repo
      Download as .zip
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂
      CHANGELOG
      0.1.1 Debugging: fixed error during uninstall 0.1.0 Added new detection of async scripts for W3C Validation 0.0.6 CSS-Debugging for hiding unused buttons, added ProCache support for the JavaScript tag 0.0.5 Multi-language support included completely (also in TextFormatter). Added possibility to async load other assets (e.g. <img type="optin" data-category="marketing" data-src="https://via.placeholder.com/300x300">) 0.0.4 Added possibility to add an imprint link to the banner 0.0.3 Multi-language support for module config (still in development) 0.0.2 First release 0.0.1 Early development

      Cacheable Placeholders
      This module allows you to have pieces of dynamic content inside cached output. This aims to solve the common problem of having a mostly cacheable site, but with pieces of dynamic output here and there.  Consider this simple example, where you want to output a custom greeting to the current user:
      <h1>Good morning, <?= ucfirst($user->name) ?></h1> This snippet means you can't use the template cache (at least for logged-in users), because each user has a different name. Even if 99% of your output is static, you can only cache the pieces that you know won't include this personal greeting. A more common example would be CSRF tokens for HTML forms - those need to be unique by definition, so you can't cache the form wholesale.
      This module solves this problem by introducing cacheable placeholders - small placeholder tokens that get replaced during every request. The replacement is done inside a Page::render hook so it runs during every request, even if the response is served from the template cache. So you can use something like this:
      <h1>Good morning, {{{greeting}}}</h1> Replacement tokens are defined with a callback function that produces the appropriate output and added to the module through a simple hook:
      // site/ready.php wire()->addHookAfter('CachePlaceholders::getTokens', function (HookEvent $e) { $tokens = $e->return; $tokens['greeting'] = [ 'callback' => function (array $tokenData) { return ucfirst(wire('user')->name); } ]; $e->return = $tokens; }); Tokens can also include parameters that are parsed and passed to the callback function. There are more fully annotated examples and step-by-step instructions in the README on Github!
      Features
      A simple and fast token parser that calls the appropriate callback and runs automatically. Tokens may include multiple named or positional parameters, as well as multi-value parameters. A manual mode that allows you to replace tokens in custom pieces of cached content (useful if you're using the $cache API). Some built-in tokens for common use-cases: CSRF-Tokens, replacing values from superglobals and producing random hexadecimal strings. The token format is completely customizable, all delimiters can be changed to avoid collisions with existing tag parsers or template languages. Links
      Github Repository & documentation Module directory (pending approval) If you are interested in learning more, the README is very extensive, with more usage examples, code samples and usage instructions!
