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">

something between ..

<?php if ($page->images->count > 0) : ?>

    </td>
  <?php endforeach; ?>

template part:


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

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.

      TrelloWire
      This is a module that allows you to automatically create Trello cards for ProcessWire pages and update them when the pages are updated. This allows you to setup connected workflows. Card properties and change handling behaviour can be customized through the extensive module configuration. Every action the module performs is hookable, so you can modify when and how cards are created as much as you need to. The module also contains an API-component that makes it easy to make requests to the Trello API and build your own connected ProcessWire-Trello workflows.
      Features
      All the things the module can do for you without any custom code: Create a new card on Trello whenever a page is added or published (you can select applicable templates). Configure the target board, target list, name and description for new cards. Add default labels and checklists to the card. Update the card whenever the page is updated (optional). When the status of the card changes (published / unpublished, hidden / unhidden, trashed / restored or deleted), move the card to a different list or archive or delete it (configurable). You can extend this through hooks in many ways: Modifiy when and how cards are created. Modify the card properties (Target board & list, title, description, et c.) before they are sent to Trello. Create your own workflows by utilizing an API helper class with many convenient utility methods to access the Trello API directly. Feedback & Future Plans
      Let me know what you think! In particular:
      If you find any bugs report them here or on Github, I'll try to fix them. This module was born out of a use-case for a client project where we manage new form submissions through Trello. I'm not sure how many use-cases there are for this module. If you do use it, tell me about it! The Trello API is pretty extensive, I'll try to add some more helper methods to the TrelloWireApi class (let me know if you need anything in particular). I'll think about how the module can support different workflows that include Twig – talk to me if you have a use-case! Next steps could be a dashboard to manage pages that are connected to a Trello card, or a new section in the settings tab to manage the Trello connection. But it depends on whether there is any interest in this 🙂 Links

      Please use the new RockFinder2
      #######################
      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      Process Cache Control
      This module 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) Clear the ProCache page render cache (if your site is using ProCache) 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.
      Plans for improvements
      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!

      PrevNextTabs Module
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/PrevNextTabs
      Processwire helper modules for adding page navigation within the editor.
      Overview
      This is a very simple module that adds Previous and Next links inline with the tabs on the page editor. Hovering over the tab shows the title of the previous or next page (using the admin's built in jqueryUI tooltips.)
      Usage
      This module is typically used during development where you or your editors need to traverse through pages for the purpose of proofing, flagging and/or commenting. Rather than returning to the page tree or lister, they can navigate with these links.
      Warnings
      If you are using PW version 2.6.1 or later, the system will prevent you from leaving the page if you have unsaved edits.
      For earlier versions, to avoid accidentally losing changes made to a page that might occur if a user accidentally clicks on one of these, make sure to have the Form Save Reminder module installed.
