Unfortunately this is probably a path to disaster these days - spam has made email painful and I think the only reliable option these days is to go with a transactional email service like MailGun, Postmark, SendInBlue etc. And be sure to spend the time to learn about and properly implement DKIM, SPF, and a DMARC policy.

ugh..ok.

but... it works fine from my localhost dev server though?!

I'll defer to horst on the troubleshooting of it actually sending. I am just talking about the deliverability issues you are likely to deal with. If the emails are only to site editors/staff you may be ok, but if they are being sent to site users then it's likely going to be an issue at least in my experience. Maybe others will disagree?

pfffffff... ok everyone thanks for the replies!

but i think i just found the problem.

The client hadn't filled out the subject line field in the back-end, so i was trying to send emails with no subject lines.

so i guess all the send requests got filtered by a spam filter or something, or they were just invalid. But now they are being send.

Stupid mistake, which took way too many hours to correct! But that's web development for you i guess 😛

Hi there,

I've been using Wire Mail for a while and now I would like to change its signature settings to send a signature along the email message "only when explicitly called via the API" (currently I have "automatically with every Message").

WireMail-signature-settings.png.a30ce971328a473dc13f39147919fcca.png

My questions are:

  1. How and where to call the signature API? That is, which code should I use and in which file should I add this code to have a "signature on demand"?
  2. I'm also using Form Builder and other PW modules that send emails with Wire Mail. How and where to set the signature via API for them, in particular for Form Builder?
  3. How to customise the signature if you don't want to use (and send) the Sender Signature set in Wire Mail module settings?

addSignature ( true | false ) - the default-behave is selectable in config screen, this can be overridden here
(only available if a signature is defined in the config screen)

Hi @LAPS,

current implementation only allows one signature, set in the config screen. The option only defines when it should be send: never everytime or defined via API.

Maybe it would be a nice addition to have a API method to pass in different signatures.

I've used this module a number of times and it works well. Now I am trying to use it in a multi-instance environment and am a bit stuck. Is this possible at all?

To explain: I have two sites (in a  PW multi-site setup - although I think the issue would be the same even if they were completely separate). "site" is a private admin site and "site-web" is a public website. "site-web" accesses "site" via an instance as described in https://processwire.com/blog/posts/multi-instance-pw3/.

"site" has a contact form which is accessed by "site-web" and has WireMailSmtp installed. When completed, an email is sent using $mail=wireMail(). This works fine when the public site is not a PW site. However, when it is a PW site (as "site-web" is), the context for WireMail is "site-web", not "site", so $mail returns a WireMail class, not a WireMailSmtp class. I cannot find a way to call WireMail in the right instance context. If I try and call WireMailSmtp directly, it is operating in the wrong context and fails.

I guess I could install a copy of WireMailSmtp on "site-web", but then I need to maintain the config on both sites. Besides it seems counter-intuitive that using a non-PW site for the public site should be easier than doing it in PW!

I'd be grateful for any ideas or insights.

Can you give concrete examples to the following?

Are you able, and if so, how do you create your instances instance_A and instance_B, and which one is called from where?

You have to be aware that WireMailSmtp supports PW Versions up from 2.4.1 until now. There wasn't any multi instance available and it can be that it is not easily possible to implement it into the module. But it can be possible to find a simple to use and easy to maintainable way. Therefor, I need to know how you are using it, how the code snippets look like.

Where is your instance_A, where your instance_B,

how do you create the second instance,

where and how do you call the wireMail object?

In your terminology, lets say instance_B is "site" and instance_A is "site-web". Both sites sit under the same root, sharing the same wire/ (i.e. a multi-site installation).

17 minutes ago, horst said:

in _init.php (part of the template rendering) in instance_A:

$config->admin_site = new ProcessWire($config->paths->root . 'site/');

I use $config->admin_site so that it can be accessed anywhere (assuming the current context is instance_A).

20 minutes ago, horst said:

Ah, that's a bit (!) more complicated. Instance_A accesses a runtime markup field in instance_B thus:

$adminPage = $config->admin_site->pages->get("template=Availability, name=bawd-hall-availability");
$availabilityTable = $adminPage->runtime_markup_availability;

This field renders php in the file Availability.php, which lives in instance_B ("site")

Availability.php renders a form thus:

$out .= $config->admin_site->files->render($currentPath . 'booking_form.php');

where $currentPath is $files->currentPath(); - i.e. booking_form is a sibling of Availability. (BTW, Availability.php checks the host name in the headers to determine whether it is being called as a second instance or not).

booking_form's action is $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] (i.e. the original page, thus running Availability.php again). Availability.php tests (isset($_GET["submit"]) ) and if true processes the POST variables from the form. After validation, the mail is constructed from these variables with $mail = wireMail(); etc.

For more background (if you really want 😉 ) you can see here, where @kongondo was extremely helpful getting the RuntimeMarkup Fields module working in a multi-instance environment.

@MarkE, it is not necessary for me to know what and which forms you are using and how you have organized this. 🙂

I only want to know where and how you call the WireMail object.

Is it in the runtime markup field? Where and how do you call it?

Yes. The php for that field is Availability.php, which is in instance_B, and calls mail as described above. Not sure what more info you want re "where and how". Abbreviated code for this script is below:

<?php namespace ProcessWire;
$headers = getallheaders();
$permittedNonPW = array_map('trim', array_map('strip_tags', explode(',', $page->bodyTop)));
$permittedPW = array_map('trim', array_map('strip_tags', explode(',', $page->bodyFoot)));
// If site is a PW site, then need to deal with the different instances
if (in_array($headers['Host'], $permittedPW)) {
    $site = $config->admin_site;
    $config->sitePages = $config->admin_site->pages;
} else {
    $site = wire();
    $config->sitePages = $pages;
}
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// Process any form results:
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// define variables and set to empty values
$name = $email_address = $phone = $fromToDate = $adults = $children = $pets = $provbooking = $message = $spambot = "";
$fromerror = $toerror = $radioerror = $propertyName = "";

function test_input($data) {
   //.........
    return $data;
}

if (isset($_GET["submit"])) {
    $out = '';
    if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
        $propertyName = test_input($_POST["property"]);
        //...... //fill variables
    }
       //......
            $mail = wireMail();
            if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') {
                wire()->log->save('debug', 'Could not get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp); found: ' . $mail->className);
            } else {
                $mail->to($to)
                    ->from($myemail)
                    ->subject($email_subject)
                    ->bodyHTML($email_body_top . $email_body);
                $numsent = $mail->send();
                if ($numsent > 0) {
                    //.....
                        $out .= '<script>alert("Your request has been submitted - you should receive an automated email acknowledgement shortly.")</script>';
                   //.....
    $url = strtok($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], '?');
    $out .= '<script>window.location.assign("' . $url . '");</script>';
    return $out;
}
///////////////////////////////////////////////
/////////////// MAIN PAGE ////////////////////
//////////////////////////////////////////////
$currentPath = $files->currentPath();
$out = ... // Fills the availability table ...
  
////////////////////Don't forget the form itself//////////////////////////////
if (in_array($headers['Host'], $permittedPW)){
    wire()->log->save('debug', 'Calling booking form sitePages = ' . $config->sitePages->get('/')->title . ', $headers["Host"] is ' . $headers["Host"]);
    $out .= $config->admin_site->files->render($currentPath . 'booking_form.php');
} else {
    $out .= wire()->files->render($config->paths->templates . 'RuntimeMarkup/booking_form.php');
}
//////////////////FINALLY RETURN THE OUTPUT!!!///////////////////////////
return $out;

This works fine for $permittedNonPW but not for $permittedPW.

Yep, there are these line(s):

if (isset($_GET["submit"])) {
       //......
            $mail = wireMail();

This is very unspecific. You need to call explicitly a WireMail object from your desired instance! For example, if you are starting in your admin_instance, how do you fetch up your website_instance? 

You need to check if you really have an own instance of your $website_instance in your $admin_instance. If yes, pick up the $website_instance at that point above in the code and call the mail function of that instance: https://processwire.com/api/ref/wire-mail-tools/

As pseudo code:

if (isset($_GET["submit"])) {
       //......
       $myMailHandler = $myWebsiteInstance->wire('mail');  // or something like that

 

Also, in your code above you are using and overwriting(!) the predefined $mail variable, what should be omitted. Instead use your own name for that special instance mailhandler.

Sorry - I forgot to say that I had tried various other things, including your suggestion. I've now done those things again (with $mailOwner rather than $mail - I'd forgotten that was predefined) and recorded the error in each case. These are reproduced below as a pair of lines - code followed by error:

$mailOwner = $config->admin_site->wire('mail');
Could not get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp); found: WireMailTools [My debugging line]
$mailOwner = $config->admin_site->mail->new();
 require_once(./WireMailSmtpAdaptor.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in M:\laragon\www\BawdHall\site\assets\cache\FileCompiler\site\modules\WireMailSmtp\WireMailSmtp.module on line 290

The second of these seems to be calling the right module (WireMailSmtp) but can't find the file because $config is always for instance_A. This seems similar to the issue we had with Runtime Markup.

Have you debugged $config->admin_site? What is it? Your PW instance object? What debug output does it show when you call $config->admin_site->wire('config')? Also I had understand that your WireMailSmtp is installed and configured in the website-instance, not the admin-instance? Can you clarify that, please?

Which instance is the current started (running)? I thought the admin_instance, is this right?

Where is the WireMailSmtp installed and configured? I thought in the website_instance, is this right?

Yes. It is used extensively elsewhere in Availability.php and works fine.

Config ($config->admin_site outputs ProcessWire 3.0.153 dev #1)

No the host page is in site-web, which I think you are calling website_instance.

No. It is in admin_instance, where the runtime markup field with Availability.php is.

I have a temporary work-round, although less than ideal. I capture the form details and save it as a page in admin_instance (that works fine, using $config->admin_site). Then a LazyCron in the admin site picks up new forms and sends the emails. (I tried to use a hook after Pages::added, but it seems that this is not triggered when the page is added from another instance.) When the LazyCron runs, it is of course running in the admin instance.

EDIT: Actually there are pros and cons of the work-round method, so I will stick with it for now. Thanks for the comments @horst.

I read through all 14 pages, hoping to find some solution to my problem.

I learned that I can no use my regular Gmail password, instead an App Password was generated for my account and I have that in place in the settings 😉 Thanks to whomever suggested that!

I've gone through and entered all relevant fields pertaining to using Googles Gmail SMTP for my localhost testing. This is being done on my laptop running Linux (PopOS).

smtp hostname = smtp.gmail.com
smtp port = 587
smtp user/password = my gmail credentials and the generated app password
start tls checked, use ssl checked
 

I submit/save settings but I see no where where it says "SUCCESS! SMTP settings appear to work correctly" 😞

I have the following in a template:

<?php
	$to = 'organizedfellow@gmail.com';
	$from = 'organizedfellow@gmail.com';
	$subject = 'email testes';
	$textBody = 'this is the body of the test email';

	$numSent = wireMail($to, $from, $subject, $textBody);
?>

Dear friends,
the failure of the module depends on the hosting (godaddy). Below is the question solved ..
 
Sending emails through other providers in Godaddy is not allowed, so you need to use the following settings:

Port: 25
SMTP authentication: False or None
SSL or secure connection: None
Server or Host: The relay server to use depends on the type of hosting and script you use. What type is my hosting account?

Linux (cPanel)
Use localhost, unless:

You use a PHP script and the mail () function.
You use a Perl script and the binary / usr / lib / sendmail.
In these cases, you will not need to specify any relay servers.

      Hello community!

      I want to share a new module I've been working on that I think could be a big boost for multi-language ProcessWire sites.

      Some background, I was looking for a way for our company website to be efficiently translated as working with human translators was pretty laborious and a lack of updating content created a divergence between languages. I, and several other devs here, have talked about translation integrations and have recognized the power that DeepL has. DeepL is an AI deep learning powered service that delivers translation quality beyond any automated service available. After access to the API was opened up to the US, I built Fluency, a DeepL translation integration for ProcessWire.
      Fluency brings automated translation to every multi-language field in the admin, and also provides a translation tool allowing the user to translate their text to any language without it being inside a template's field. With Fluency you can:
      Translate any plain textarea or text input Translate any CKEditor content (yes, with markup) Translate page names for fully localized URLs on every page Translate your in-template translation function wrapped strings Translate modules Fluency is free, and now so is DeepL
      Since this module was first built DeepL has introduced free Developer accounts that allow anyone to start using Fluency at zero cost and beginning with the version 0.3.0 release Fluency now supports free DeepL accounts. As of June 2021 DeepL supports translation to 26 languages and continues to offer more!
      Installation and usage is completely plug and play. Whether you're building a new multi-language site, need to update a site to multi-language, or simply want to stop manually translating a site and make any language a one-click deal, it could not be easier to do it. Fluency works by having you match the languages configured in ProcessWIre to DeepL's. You can have your site translating to any or all of the languages DeepL translates to in minutes (quite literally).
      Let's break out the screenshots...
      When the default language tab is shown, a message is displayed to let users know that translation is available. Clicking on each tab shows a link that says "Translate from English". Clicking it shows an animated overlay with the word "Translating..." cycling through each language and a light gradient shift. Have a CKEditor field? All good. Fluency will translated it and use DeepL's ability to translate text within HTML tags. CKEditor fields can be translated as easily and accurately as text/textarea fields.

      Repeaters and AJAX created fields also have translation enabled thanks to a JavaScript MutationObserver that searches for multi-language fields and adds translation as they're inserted into the DOM. If there's a multi-language field on the page, it will have translation added.

      Same goes for image description fields. Multi-language SEO friendly images are good to go.

      Creating a new page from one of your templates? Translate your title, and also translate your page name for native language URLs. (Not available for Russian, Chinese, or Japanese languages due to URL limitations). These can be changed in the "Settings" tab for any page as well so whether you're translating new pages or existing pages, you control the URLs everywhere.

      Language configuration pages are no different. Translate the names of your languages and search for both Site Translation Files (including all of your modules)

      Translate all of the static text in your templates as well. Notice that the placeholders are retained. DeepL is pretty good at recognizing and keeping non-translatable strings like that. If it is changed, it's easy to fix manually.

      Fluency adds a "Translate" item to the CMS header. When clicked this opens up a modal with a full translation tool that lets the user translate any language to any language. No need to leave the admin if you need to translate content from a secondary language back to the default ProcessWire language. There is also a button to get the current API usage statistics. DeepL account owners can set billing limitations via character count to control costs. This may help larger sites or sites being retrofitted keep an eye on their usage. Fluency can be used by users having roles given the fluency-translate permission.

      It couldn't be easier to add Fluency to your new or existing website. Simply add your API key and you're shown what languages are currently available for translation from/to as provided by DeepL. This list and all configuration options are taken live from the API so when DeepL releases new languages you can add them to your site without any work. No module updates, just an easy configuration. Just match the language you configured in ProcessWire to the DeepL language you want it to be associated with and you're done. Fluency also allows you to create a list of words/phrases that will not be translated which can prevent items such as brands and company names from being translated when they shouldn't

       
      Limitations:
      No "translate page" - Translating multiple fields can be done by clicking multiple translation links on multiple fields at once but engineering a "one click page translate" is not feasible from a user experience standpoint. The time it takes to translate one field can be a second or two, but cumulatively that may take much longer (CKEditor fields are slower than plain text fields). There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't currently on the roadmap. No "translate site" - Same thing goes for translating an entire website at once. It would be great, but it would be a very intense process and take a very (very) long time. There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't on the roadmap. No current support for Inline CKEditor fields - Handling for CKEditor on-demand hasn't been implemented yet, this is planned for a future release though and can be done. I just forgot about it because I've never really used that feature personally.. Alpha release - This module is in alpha. Releases should be stable and usable, but there may be edge case issues. Test the module thoroughly and please report any bugs via a Github issue on the repository or respond here. Please note that the browser plugin for Grammarly conflicts with Fluency (as it does with many web applications). To address this issue it is recommended that you disable Grammarly when using Fluency, or open the admin to edit pages in a private window where Grammarly may not be loaded. This is an issue that may not have a resolution as creating a workaround may not be possible. If you have insight as to how this may be solved please visit the Github page and file a bugfix ticket.
      Requirements:
      ProcessWire  3.0+ UIKit Admin Theme That's Fluency in a nutshell. A core effort in this module is to create it so that there is nothing DeepL related hard-coded in that would require updating it when DeepL offers new languages. I would like this to be a future-friendly module that doesn't require developer work to keep it up-to-date.
      The Module Is Free
      This is my first real module and I want to give it back to the community as thanks. This is the best CMS I've worked with (thank you Ryan & contributors) and a great community (thank you dear reader).

      (once again I was surprised to see a work of mine pop up in the newsletter, this time without even listing the module on PW modules website 😅. Thx @teppo !)
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      This is a simple module I made so a client could quickly grab a QR Code of the page's url in the admin.
      There's not much to it for now, but if need be you can output anything using a hook:
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) You can also output the QR code on your front-end by calling the field:
      echo $page->qr_code_field; The module uses the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase. When looking for a way to generate a QR Code in PW I came across @ryan's integration in his TFA module. I'm not very familiar with fieldtype/inputfield module development so I blindly followed @bernhard (great) tutorial and his BaseFieldtypeRuntime. At some point I'll take a deeper look to make a module on my own.
      Some ideas for improvements :
      add the ability to choose what to ouput : page's url / editUrl / file(s) / image(s) / ... allow to output multiple QR codes ?

      Inspired by @bernhard's excellent work on the new customisable LESS CSS getting rolled into the core soon, I thought I would offer up the module for beta testing, if it is of interest to anyone.

      It takes a different approach to admin styling, basically using the Cascade part of CSS to over-ride default UiKit values.
      Values are stored in ModuleConfig Module creates a separate AdminThemeTweaker Folder at root, so it can link to AdminThemeTweaker.php as CSS AdminThemeTweaker.php reads the module values, constructs the CSS variables then includes the CSS framework Can be switched on and off with a click. Uninstall removes everything, thanks to bernhard's wonderful remove dir & contents function.
      It won't touch your core. It won't care if stuff is upgraded. You won't need to compile anything and you don't need to touch CSS unless you want to.

      It won't do much at all apart from read some values from your module config, work out the right CSS variables to use (auto contrast based on selected backgrounds) and throw it on your screen.
      You can configure a lot of stuff, leave it as it comes (dark and curvy), change two main colors (background and content background) or delve deep to configure custom margins, height of mastheads, and all manner of silly stuff I never use.

      Have been developing it for somewhere around 2 years now. It has been (and will continue to be) constantly tweaked over that time, as I click on something and find something else to do.
      That said, it is pretty solid and has been in constant use as my sole Admin styling option for all of those 2 years.

      If nothing else, it would be great if it can provide any assistance to @bernhard or other contributor's who may be looking to solve some of the quirkier UiKit behavior.
      Has (in my opinion) more robust and predictable handling of hidden Inputfields, data-colwidths and showIf wrappers.
      I am very keen to help out with that stuff in any way I can, though LESS (and any css frameworks/tools basically) are not my go.
      I love CSS variables and banging-rocks-together, no-dependency CSS you can write with notepad.

      I see old posts saying that repeaters are not the way to go in Custom Process Modules. If that is the case, when using forms (as I am trying to do) how would one tackle things like repeat contact fields where there can be multiple requirements for contact details with different parameters? (Like point of contact, director, etc) or even telephone numbers that have different uses?
      Just for background I am creating a process module that allows me to create types of financial applications in the admin area (no need to publish any of this, pure admin) that require a lot of personal or company information.
      Maybe I am thinking about this incorrectly?

      I ran across a reference to IftRunner module. The post was 6 years ago. I cant find it in available modules. Has it been pulled?
