You can stay with PHP 7.3.x, and you can also try the same method to update it with the last mPDF version. If it didn't work, then use an older mPDF version like I did.

Don't really work for me with the 1 in the cache. I'll try to update mpdf and set php to 7.3 maybe then. 

EDIT: Ok the latest mpdf have other filestrukture i think i cant replace the folder so easy also i will stay at 6.1 but i cant see my custom template files. Where could the problem be ?

That's a really great module! Thanks a lot!

On localhost it works perfect. But on the server I have the problem, that it don't creat the pdf file correctly. The file has only 0 Bytes and there is an error if I open it. Somethink like "the file is damaged". Does somebody has an idea where to problem is? On Chrome DevTools is this error:

Resource interpreted as Document but transferred with MIME type application/pdf:

Thanks for your help.

 

<a href="<?php echo $page->url;?>?pages2pdf=1">PDF erstellen</a>

SOLVED: On the server "readfile()" was disallowed

One problem was, that I used PHP 7.2 on the server. Now i changed to PHP 5.6.

But if I click on the Link (<a href="<?php echo $page->url;?>?pages2pdf=1">PDF erstellen</a>), the file is saved on the server in /site/assets/files/page-id. But no visiual download ond the webpage. It opens just a empty page with the following url: .../page_name?pages2pdf=1. On localhost it works. Does somebody has an idea where my fault is? Thank you.

Guys I'm really desperate. The templates can not be changed, I have no idea why. Not the headers or not the default it always stays the same.

It also does not work with Multilanguage. Is nobody there who can help me?

You cannot expect that forum members can remember the exact problem that you have posted several weeks ago. Describe your problem. Try to make it reproducable (eg by providing a site profile of a clean installation that shows the problem) and I'm sure there will be someone who can help you.

Sometimes even describing the problem as good as you can brings you to the solution 😉

Just to get the records straight...

  • ProcessWire version?
  • Multilanguage profile or another profile made multilanguage?
  • How many languages?
  • Does it work in any of the languages?
  • PHP version?
  • Module version?
  • How do you generate the PDFs? Code snippet would be great
  • Where do you create the PDFs - frontend or backend?
  • Templates: page or PDF?
  • Template location?
  • Template strategy - delayed, direct, regions?

@bernhard @wbmnfktr

Thanks for the fast answer. So i try to describe the situation. 
I have installed the module.  CURRENTLY SITCHED OFF THE MULTINLANGUAGE SUPPORT ON PW 

ProcessWire 3.0.126 © 2019
PHP 7.2  
Screenshot_3.thumb.jpg.e85f681a55fad9dab9bdab76d0a1b872.jpg

 

So now if i try to change the templates in /site/modules/Pages2Pdf/default_templates
for example 

default.php 
<h1><?= $page->get('headline|title') ?></h1>
<p><?= $page->body ?></p>

<?php if (count($page->immo_images)): ?>
    <?php foreach ($page->immo_images as $image): ?>
        <div class="image">
        <img src="<?= $image->size(400, 400)->url ?>" alt="<?= $image->description ?>" />
        </div>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
<?php endif; ?>


_header.php 
<?php
/*
 * Pages2Pdf default header markup
 * Styles defined in styles.css file
 *
 * You can use {PAGENO} for the current page number and {nbpg} for the total of pages
 *
 */
?>

<div class="head">Test </div>
Hier kommt EXPOSE 
<hr>
Hallo WELT 

Then try to generate the file on the site 

 

$options = array(
  'title' => 'Expose als PDF',
  'markup' => '<a href="{url}" target="_blank" class="btn button-sm border-button-theme col-lg-12 col-md-12 col-xs-12 margin-b-10"  >{title}</a>',
  //'page_id' => '', // Pass a page ID if you want to download the PDF for another page
);
echo $modules->get('Pages2Pdf')->render($options);

nothing happens. 
It generates always the same PDF see as attached. 
There is the standart header and footer. 
Also on the content is the standart code. 

THE CACHE IS ON 1

I tried this:

  • fresh 3.0.123 installation
  • multilanguage profile
  • PHP 7.2
  • latest Pages2PDF module

2019-10-02-165040_1683x1417_scrot.thumb.png.db7377434462b967970a511a2f63da7c.png

At first I saw no changes at all because I changed the wrong templates in /site/modules/Pages2PDF/default_templates/ and not those in /site/templates/pages2pdf/.

Right now... all I can say is: it's working as expected. Sure... there is no custom code in my page templates or anythings. Just the basic stuff.

My recommendation: try it with a simple basic template without anything else in it. Maybe even blindtext. Maybe the reason for your errors are at a different place than the module itself.

Update: just saw in your post that you ARE in the wrong folder with the wrong templates.

@wbmnfktr 
ok thats really embrrassing now. 

With the Templates I was in the wrong path. The module  path not the template. 

With the multilanguage i installed not the profile only the module (part of PW Multilanguage Support )
But thanks a lot for the HELP. Now it works with the PDF files without multilanguage.

You will remember it the next time. 😉 

I checked the multilanguage support... that worked as well.

As said before... try taking it apart with just a few simple templates to find the real problem.

@wbmnfktr OK I think the error is not in the pages2pdf I use to import files the ImportPages2Xml module and when the multilanguage is on then the error comes that pages2pdf

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>
  <?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:

I don't know what it was in my case but one of these things fixed it or at least I got the .png files in my PDFs:

  • using relative path to the file
  • installing GD and PHP GD extension (or was it ImageMagick?)

And somehow I was able to get more details about the problems aka got a real error message but it's way too long ago as I can remember this in full detail.

Hi there,

I'm unable to set the page orientation to landscape. Any clues ?

Here's what I have in my 'pages2pdf' folder (hence my PDF template) (triggered by a simple front-end link on which I added ?pages2pdf=1' in the url) :

	$pdf = $modules->get("WirePDF");
	$df->pageOrientation = "L";
	echo "This is a test";
	

But my PDF is still in portrait mode 😞

I have also tried this in the front-end page having the PDF download link :

	echo $modules->get("Pages2Pdf")->render(["pageOrientation"=>"L"]);
	

but clicking the generated link still gives me a PDF in portrait mode 😞

On my site, I have many PDF generated this way, but there were all in portrait mde so I've never had to manage such an issue.

If you have an idea, I'd appreciate. Thanks !

Celfred

Edit : Still stuck 😞 For further information, I'm using pages2Pdf 1.1.7 and PW 3.0.123. What I find weird, in my backend modules list, I have WirePDF saying version 0.0.0 and Inactive. Is this normal ?

Back again on my preceding matters (sorry to insist...)

I've just noticed this recurring line in my modules log :

Quote

"Configurable module check failed for WirePDF, retrying..."

Do you think this could explain my previous case ?

Any advice on what I should do ? Should I try and reinstall Oages2Pdf completely ? (I'm scared of breaking things).

Thanks !

[SOLVED]

I've used this module in the past and it's been great but now I'm having problems.

Scenario

  • Page to output as PDF is different to current page so included link in the template as per instructions
  • Created template in pages2pdf/ templates dir with same name as page template
  • Configured module to use header & footer
  • Set Cache time to 1 to minimise caching while testing
  • Configured Creation Mode to "On click..." as there is no need to store the PDF's on the server

All good so far. Just needed to tweak the topMargin to that the header didn't overlap the main content. That's where I got into trouble.

To eliminate any caching issues, I change $config->debug to true and this was the result:

Spoiler

It went on with a lot of garbage and nothing was downloaded.

Switched $config->debug back to false and at least got the download happening.

I need to increase the size of the header so it doesn't overlap the main content. Read the doco and tried to implement the recommendations in every place possible without success.

Question:

How do I change the top margin without hacking the default "30" in the module?

Using PW v3.0.148 and Pages2PDF v1.1.7

Solution:

WirePDF requires the pdf to be saved in order to apply any config changes such as the top margin.

      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: PrivacyWire Git Repo
      Download as .zip
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂
      CHANGELOG
      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
    • By MoritzLost
      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!

      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

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
