Capture.PNG.5ef932891f09afbfe490b222b64d9075.PNG

 

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.

Hello,

I wanted to use Pages2Pdf to create a pdf in a module. It nearly works, but

  1. Images which I store in the same folder as the templates aren't shown. Neither
    <img src="/site/templates/pages2pdf/logo.png" alt="" width="700">

    nor

    <img src="logo.png" alt="" width="700">
  2. I need to display some data from my method in the module:
      public function ___executeTickets_Pdf() {
    	$data = $this->ticket; 	
    	$pdf = $this->modules->get('WirePDF');
    	....
    }
    
    <?php $data['prename'] ?>

    don't work...

Does someone have a hint? Thanks!

      Happy new year, everybody 🥬
      I've been sitting on this Dashboard module I made for a client and finally came around to cleaning it up and releasing it to the wider public. This is how it looks.
      ProcessWire Dashboard

      If anyone is interested in trying this out, please go ahead! I'd love to get some feedback on it. If this proves useful and survives some real-world testing, I'll add this to the module directory.
      Download
      You can find the latest release on Github.
      Documentation
      Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options.
      Custom Panels
      My goal was to make it really simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people.
       Disclaimer
      This is a pre-release version. Please treat it as such — don't install it on production sites. Just making sure 🍇
      Roadmap
      These are the things I'm looking to implement myself at some point. The wishlist is a lot longer, but those are the 80/20 items that I probably won't regret spending time on.
      Improve documentation & add examples ⚙️ Panel types Google Analytics ⚙️ Add new page  🔥 Drafts 🔥 At a glance / Page counter 404s  Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel panel groups with heading and spacing between ✅ panel wrappers as grid item (e.g. stacked notices) ✅ Admin themes support AdminThemeReno and AdminThemeDefault ✅ Shortcuts panel add a table layout with icon, title & summary ✅ Chart panel add default styles for common chart types ✅ load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array) Collection panel support image columns ✅ add buttons: view all & add new ✅

      Hi everyone!
      I'm trying out the Login/Register module for my site. Noted that the module assigns the newly registered user to login-register role. 
      Once you modify the login-register role's permissions, particularly adding page-edit, the new member role will be set to guest. 
      Thing is I'd like to grant my new users the power to create their own pages. Any advice? 
      Thanks.

      Hello
      Till now I hacked something with the twig template but it works no more with new PW versions so I look forward to create a module. I am working on a site in multiple languages : French, English, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian. The new posts are entered in any language with a field for language. Till now, I got twig files to get the translations with constants defined for each part of the pages.
      So I'd like to create a module to include theses files added according to the url /fr/en/...
      Have you some observations to do before I begin about the direction to take ?
      Thank you

      Mystique Module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF
      Github repo : https://github.com/trk/Mystique
      Mystique module allow you to create dynamic fields and store dynamic fields data on database by using a config file.
      Requirements
      ProcessWire 3.0 or newer PHP 7.0 or newer FieldtypeMystique InputfieldMystique Installation
      Install the module from the modules directory:
      Via Composer:
      composer require trk/mystique Via git clone:
      cd your-processwire-project-folder/ cd site/modules/ git clone https://github.com/trk/Mystique.git Module in live reaction with your Mystique config file
      This mean if you remove a field from your config file, field will be removed from edit screen. As you see on youtube video.
      Using Mystique with your module or use different configs path, autoload need to be true for modules
      Default configs path is site/templates/configs/, and your config file name need to start with Mystique. and need to end with .php extension.
      Adding custom path not supporting anymore !
      // Add your custom path inside your module class`init` function, didn't tested outside public function init() { $path = __DIR__ . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'configs' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR; Mystique::add($path); } Mystique module will search site/modules/**/configs/Mystique.*.php and site/templates/Mystique.*.php paths for Mystique config files.
      All config files need to return a PHP ARRAY like examples.
      Usage almost same with ProcessWire Inputfield Api, only difference is set and showIf usage like on example.
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : testing-mystique */ return [ 'title' => __('Testing Mystique'), 'fields' => [ 'text_field' => [ 'label' => __('You can use short named types'), 'description' => __('In file showIf working like example'), 'notes' => __('Also you can use $input->set() method'), 'type' => 'text', 'showIf' => [ 'another_text' => "=''" ], 'set' => [ 'showCount' => InputfieldText::showCountChars, 'maxlength' => 255 ], 'attr' => [ 'attr-foo' => 'bar', 'attr-bar' => 'foo' ] ], 'another_text' => [ 'label' => __('Another text field (default type is text)') ] ] ]; Example:
      site/templates/configs/Mystique.seo-fields.php <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : seo-fields */ return [ 'title' => __('Seo fields'), 'fields' => [ 'window_title' => [ 'label' => __('Window title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a window title') ] ], 'navigation_title' => [ 'label' => __('Navigation title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'showIf' => [ 'window_title' => "!=''" ], 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a navigation title') ] ], 'description' => [ 'label' => __('Description for search engines'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXTAREA, 'useLanguages' => true ], 'page_tpye' => [ 'label' => __('Type'), 'type' => Mystique::SELECT, 'options' => [ 'basic' => __('Basic page'), 'gallery' => __('Gallery'), 'blog' => __('Blog') ] ], 'show_on_nav' => [ 'label' => __('Display this page on navigation'), 'type' => Mystique::CHECKBOX ] ] ]; Searching data on Mystique field is limited.
