Pressing problem at initial posting: I am working on a module that runs/previews (for pub/unpub) imports on importer page view. The template has to be in site/templates, so far as I know, so one is created there on install which includes a file to run from within the module, but then when it's run and tries to read the importer csv file it cannot, since it's in the admin, I guess... Is it possible to set the template page to a file in the module directory? Will that work?
I recently installed PW 3.0.62 for a new site and also have sites running older version of PW 3.x.
Can I export the database on an older version of PW 3.x and import it to PW 3.0.62 without any issues?
(This is kind of alternative to the above for long term use - and maybe a better solution...)
On the sites I've previously built I have templates (home, basic-page, contact) and fields that I commonly use, such as business_name, phone_1. The last site I built is running PW 3.0.42. I was considering cloning this into a local site and running the upgrade module to bring it up to PW 3.0.62. From there on out when I start I new project I could just run the PW upgrade module, copy the folder to the location for the new project and duplicate the database using the new projects name.
So basically, I'll always keep a "blank slate" site that I can just run the PW upgrade on, then duplicate into a new project. This would cut down on the work and time spent having to re-create these common fields, that I use. From there, I would just add fields, templates, etc, specific for the new website project.
Is this a sound approach to speed up development?
I am trying to install Processwire + an exported custom profile and keep getting this error:
Does anyone recognize this? What could cause this?
I have installed Processwire + exported profiles many times before, never had problems. I have reuploaded fresh downloads for this, both regular master and dev, but keep getting the same thing.
I am probably doing something dumb. Probably not a structural PW issue. I am out of ideas, so any feedback appreciated.
Finally got something to install using the standard blank profile, instead of an exported profile. I am now manually reconstructing my custom site, using the new import/export functions - hit or miss so far. Did those break the ProcessProfileExport module?
Would anyone here be able and inspired to develop a ProcessWire equivalent to the WordPress plugin WP All Import Pro? or to help me do so?
This is what I'm envisioning...
Upon installation the module creates an admin page titled "Import & Update". On the module config page you can specify allowed templates to run this on, otherwise allowing any. Include the following PHP libraries: hQuery for web scraping, Csv for CSV handling, and Parser for XML. Create template "import-update". On the "Import & Update" page, a list of current import/updaters will be displayed (0 initially), each with corresponding links to "edit" or "run". When you "Add New", this be the "import-update" template (with all module-specific fields tagged "impupd"):
title destination (req.): parent, template source (req.): type (web, csv, xml) location (url, file, text) if web: opt. index URL & link selector, + paginator selector if csv: opt. ignore 1st row if xml: req. individual item node xpath actions (check): import (if none matching UID) update (if matching UID & field values differ) save() [req. here in flow] map (repeater): input (select fields from specified template to affect) intake (corresponding DOM selectors / CSV col. letters/headers / xpath per field) (req.) UID (unique ID; field reference to compare against, from selected input fields) (req.) Lazy Cron interval Scripts can be run via the import-update template; keep logs; show preview (iframe/ajax) for manual runs. ...
I'm trying to export a large site but the export profile module keeps timing out due to the size of the installation its trying to export (around 1500 pages - half with body content). Is there any work around or is it worth simply duplicating the site and files without using teh export profile module?
