Moving several pages in one go: possible?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting my feet wet with PW... Today I'm trying to build a basic portfolio site. One of the things I need are categories. I know by now how to accomplish this. However, while creating pages and doing tests, I wondered: Is there a special module that allows you to move several pages at once? Batcher doesn't have this, as far as I can see.

Also, is it correct that with the current default "move" action within the pages menu, you can't put a page inside another page i.e. container page? You can always just move one page at a time within the same hierarchy level.

I think it would be a very nice-to-have feature in the admin section (or as an optional module).

I also looked up the database: "pages_parents" would probably be the place where to manually change parents via SQL. But I'm not sure how to use that, when there are multiple parents, i.e. a container-page is nested inside one or two other pages deep.

Perhaps there's a tiny little thing I've been missing? Would you rather use the API to set a new parent for dozens of pages?

There is "change parent" in Batcher. Look again :)

You can move a page into another parent, but that parent has to be open.

      Hi,
      I would like to set an admin template to 'https only' as recommended in the Processwire security docs.
      However if I do this it forces this setting locally too, resulting in https://localhost requests which result in an error page.
      Is there a simple way round this? Setting https for templates in the config?
      Thanks!

      Hi. I'm currently stuck at the login page in my project. Once I enter my admin username and my password and press login, nothing happens. The page just reloads. However, the URL changes from http://myipaddress/processwire to http://myipaddress/processwire/?login=1. I've checked all of my server settings, and to my knowledge, all seems to be fine there. I don't know where to go from here.. Thanks in advance!

      Small annoyance: I get a horizontal scrollbar in UIkit admin area - or actually Admin Theme Boss based on Uikit 3. I tried to fix it with CSS, but had trouble isolating/targeting it and don't want to mess with module or core files. I think this issue has been reported before. Is there a recommended fix?

      The Minimal Site works fine, but if I try to login as admin, I have no idea what the credentials are.
      I did not do the "install" process myself. The OVA came with everything set up, but there's no mention of the PW admin credentials being set to some initial value.
      Wondering if anyone else has tried the Bitnami OVA and if there's a simple answer.

      I don't have any fontawesome icons in the admin section. Not sure what's wrong. They used to appear. I've tried all the user profiles and they're gone in all of them.
      Using the browser inspector tool, I see this message:
      Access to font at 'https://www.domain.com/wire/templates-admin/styles/font-awesome/fonts/fontawesome-webfont.ttf?v=4.7.0' from origin 'http://domain.com' has been blocked by CORS policy: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource.
      I'm not sure why this is occurring or how to fix it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
