Pages2Pdf

Recommended Posts

I use the module for a german page without multi language support. If I remember right you could do it with the Languagefields which processwire offers. If you need images or repeater or something else just name it with the ending of your language... e.g. if your shortname for english is en the you can name it myImage_en. Hope this will be help for you.

hello Henning,

as I understand you correct: you mean to create more than one instance of the pdf creation button depending on the language? Mmmhh, I will try this tomorrow but this could be a possible solution.

It has to create a pdf file for each language - at the moment only on pdf-file is created (independent of the language).

Best regards jürgen

Hi Juergen,

I'm the maintainer of the module.

You could solve it by hooking after this method and return a PDF filename that depends on the language of the current user:

https://github.com/wanze/Pages2Pdf/blob/master/Pages2Pdf.module#L454

I could make this method hookable for you. But I think supporting multilang would be a great feature for the module, I might need this myself soon.

I'll find some time this weekend to implement it. :)

My approach would be to create a new configuration option where you can select for what languages the PDFs are generated.

When requesting a download, the PDF in the language of the current user is served.

Cheers

Edit:

Could you post module related questions in the official module thread? Thanks.

I'll try to merge them ;)

Hello Stefan,

thanks for your contribution (and the awesome module too).

Yes it would be great to get the possibility of multilanguage support. At the moment I dont need this function immediately. I am not very familiar with hooks in processwire so I will wait until an update ;)

Next time I will post it under the right section, I`ll swear :)

Thanks and best regards

Jürgen

Hi,

I have implemented the feature and it's available in the dev branch: https://github.com/wanze/Pages2Pdf/tree/dev

If anyone has time to test it out, please do so and report any issues back here. I will merge it into the master branch after some more testing :)

How does it work?

First, you need to enable multilanguage support in the module configuration. If enabled, the module creates a PDF in the language of the current user. The same is true when downloading a PDF. If the PDFs are pre-generated when saving pages in the admin, a PDF for each language is created.

The language name is appended to the PDF filename in order to distinguish between files of different languages. In addition, if the module "LanguageSupportPageNames" is installed, the local page name is used for the filename.

At the same time I added the newest version of mPDF to the module WirePDF. As always, please check that your PDFs are still rendered correctly after updating!

Good night to everyone from Switzerland

Thanks for your feedback Jürgen!

I've tested myself and didn't find any bugs, so i merged into master. Meaning that v. 1.1.2 is now official ;)

As described two posts above, this version adds support for multilanguage PDF files.

Please make sure that your PDF files are still generated correctly before you update on a live site!

Cheers

Wazne - I was trying Pages2PDF for the first time after recommendations from the guys and was getting an error as follows.

 

Error: Call to a member function get() on a non-object (line 453 of /var/www/vhosts/pdf-tester.com/httpdocs/site/modules/WirePDF/Pages2Pdf.module)
This error message was shown because you are logged in as a Superuser. Error has been logged.

 

Looking at line 453 of /modules/WirePDF/Pages2PDF/ I see a reference to MultiLanguage Support.

If I check the Multilanguage support checkbox in the Module settings, my error disappears and my PDF is working.

Hi Wanze,
thanks for the module. I use it the first time. While testing in devmode I am getting the following error:
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /site/modules/Pages2Pdf/Pages2Pdf.module on line 182

method                      | called from
----------------------------+-------------
Wire->__call( )             | ../Page.php
Wire->runHooks( )           | ../Wire.php
Pages2Pdf->hookDeletePDF( ) | ../Wire.php

After a quick look. Maybe something like this could help. Not tested! (Line 182)

       // Delete PDF for each language
       $languages  =(wire('modules')->isInstalled('LanguageSupport'))?wire('languages'):array(wire('user')->language);
         foreach ($languages as $language) {

Edit:
I should read preceding posts first ... Maybe you made already an update and call determineLanguage() method in hookDeletePDF(). If not you should. :)

Had something similar. I think you need to enable multi-lingual support even if you're not using it.

Hi guys,

Thanks for reporting the problems.

You're right, the problem is that if language support is not enabled, the langauges API variable is not available. I wasn't aware of that and of course only tested when language support was enabled.  I'll push a fix this afternoon!

Cheers

hey wanze, looks great and could help me a lot if i find time to code some day for what is in my head for a long time ^^

https://github.com/wanze/Pages2Pdf/blob/master/Pages2Pdf.module#L97

shouldn't it check if the user has at least viewing access for the page with the given ID because i think $pages->get(id) via API returns the page independent of its current publishing/hidden state and access?

maybe anyone could easyly change the page id and download pdfs of pages he is not allowed to see?

Hi BernhardB,

You are right, thanks for mentioning this. I'll add the check!

The current system is secured that you must choose the templates allowed to generate PDF files. If a user does change the page ID and the template of the requested page is not allowed to create PDF's, nothing happens. However, if the template can generate PDFs and at the same time has restricted access, then this is a problem.

It seems like I'm to stupid to change the font. I followed the instructions for mpdf but I can only set default fonts like Helvetica, Times. The given example dejavu also don't work. I have converted an oft-font to ttf and put everything in the right place. Any hints how to change to individual fonts?

OK. I got it. I used the switch in the wirepdf modul configuration and set it from core fonts "c" so "s". Now it works.

Hi Wanze,

is it possible to add additional / custom css files instead of change the styles.css file?

I know there is a global configuration, but is it possible in template context?

Regards

Hi pwFoo,

It should be possible with an autoload module that hooks before Pages2Pdf::createPDF.

  1. Delete the styles.css file in /site/templates/Pages2Pdf folder, so that the module does not add styles from this file
  2. Create a new autoload module (or use an existing one) and add the following code into the init method.
// Inside an autoload module

public function init() {
  $this->addHookBefore('Pages2Pdf::createPDF', function($event) { 
    $pages2pdf = $event->object;
    $page = $event->arguments('page');
    // Set a custom css file for the template of the page where the PDF is generated
    $cssFile = wire('config')->paths->templates . 'pages2pdf/' . $page->template . '.css';
    $pages2pdf->wirePDF->set('cssFile', $cssFile); 
  });
}

I did not test this code, please report if it does work or not work :)

Cheers

At the moment I have no time to test it, but I'll report back then...

Make css file a module configuration isn't needed in every use case but would be nice. Any plans to change it?

What kind of configuration do you have in mind? There is a setting to specify the path to a css file. When it comes down to change the configuration dynamically to have multiple CSS files, it's hard to introduce a config setting that would fit everyone's needs. That's where Pws hooking system is the best solution IMO.

Ok, should also be fine ;)

If I really need this modification I use a hook / autoload module. 

Thanks for this awesome module. It makes life easier ;)

@pwFoo

Report back here if you have any issue with the hook. :)

Another possibility would be to prefix your styles with the template and put everything in one CSS file, e.g.

.home.style1 {
  background-color: green;
}
.contact.style1 {
  background-color: red;
}

      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.

      Updating from Croppable Image 3 with versions prior to 1.1.7, please do this as a one time step:
      In the PW Admin, go to side -> modules -> new, use "install via ClassName" and use CroppableImage3 for the Module Class Name. This will update your existing CroppableImage3 module sub directory, even if it is called a new install. After that, the module will be recogniced by the PW updater module, what makes it a lot easier on further updates.

      Inspired by a recent question.
      Image Crop Ratios
      Allows preset aspect ratios to be defined per image field for the ProcessWire image crop tool.
      The module adds a select dropdown to the crop tool. Choose an aspect ratio and the crop area will be fixed to that ratio.
      Screencast

      Installation
      Install the Image Crop Ratios module.
      Configuration
      Default aspect ratios for all image fields can be defined in the module config. Aspect ratios for specific image fields can be defined on the Input tab of the field settings. You can override the ratio settings in template context if needed. Insert a hyphen as the first item in the ratio settings unless you want to force a ratio to be applied to the crop tool. The hyphen represents a blank option that allows a free crop area to be drawn. Usage
      Click the "Crop" link on the details view of an image thumbnail. Click the "Crop" icon at the top of the editor window. Choose an option from the "Ratio" select dropdown.
