Batch Child Editor

Recommended Posts

Hey @Robin,

I don't have much time, but some quick answers to hopefully get you going:

1) It does support multi value fields, but it does so with a multi-value separator (default is: |) so you would need to concatenate your separate columns into one with a separator.

2) I believe it should support importing for different templates for child pages, but only for one to one column to field relationships. I think where you will have trouble is if you want to match specific columns to specific fields. This leads into your next question.

3) If you have a mismatch of columns to fields, then you will want to use the "Field Pairings" feature. This is available if you make the parent a "configurable page" in the module settings and then define the pairings on the settings tab of that parent page.

4) See answer to 3 🙂

5) Currently there is no match by ID - if you are doing an "update", then it's all based on the order of child pages. Maybe this feature could be added though.

Hope that helps.

Cheers!

@Robin S - to support the textareas pro field, I think you'll need to add a new block after these: https://github.com/adrianbj/BatchChildEditor/blob/85d81d7e7cb452c0d5ece34583e42c1f2f4aae50/BatchChildEditor.module.php#L1644-L1649

and a updateTextaresField() method to handle the import. This might actually work for other simple multivalue fieldtypes, so perhaps it could be:

elseif($f->type instanceof FieldtypeMulti) {

Not sure you timing on needing this. If you don't get to it (or decide to take a different approach), I'll try later in the week.

Thanks for the info @adrian. I think for this specific case I'll write a custom import script. I'm already using a custom script for exporting the data so will be pretty straightforward to whip up an equivalent import script. Will definitely spend some time playing with BCE later though - looks really nice.

Hi,

I can't get csv import to work for a ProField Multiplier. I have 14 columns/fields paired. The multiplier field is number 6. If mapped I get the import to work for all fields up until this field (no errors shown) this field and the following are empty. If I remove the mapping for this field everything else get's imported correctly. Is the syntax for CSV Field Pairing different when using multiplier? The field name is pm_numbers and I mapped like this:

1:title
.
.
6:pm_numbers

Most rows of the CSV has a single value the ones with more than one have them separated by a pipe |
Type is text but actually contains numbers in the CSV but that shouldn't matter right?

Any clues?

Yeah, currently BCE doesn't support the ProField Multiplier fieldtype 🙂

I'll see if I can get it working for you shortly.

Eureka! 🙂 Read in some post that it was supported, hence some loss of hair. Thanks!

@spiroue - please try the latest version - it should now work as expected for Multiplier fields.

Hi,

can this module import images?

I saw somewhere that it can but it does not work for me. Normal text fields and everything else works great but no images.

I also tried every possible path that I could think of, even remote url but no results. And no errors.

If this helps, I'm on latest PW 3.0.123, PHP 7.0.1 (tried higher version, no changes). Clean install of PW and only BCE as module.
Since I'm on Windows (10) I run Xampp or Wamp. Tried both, same result. Everything but images works.

Any ideas?

I only need one image per page but I have over 2000 images.

Hi @Deyan - sorry about that - looks like I broke it a while ago. Should be all fixed in the latest version. Let me know how you go.

Hi @adrian, thank you very much for your fast reply and fix. It works. I just tested it with few entries.

You are a life saver!

Hello. Not the greatest first post, but here we go 🙂

I'm having a small issue exporting to CSV. Every export begins with an error relating to pagesToInclude:

<br />
<b>Notice</b>:  Undefined index: pagesToInclude in <b>...\site\assets\cache\FileCompiler\site\modules\BatchChildEditor\ProcessChildrenCsvExport.module.php</b> on line <b>112</b><br />

This happens regardless of whether I set a rule for the pages to be included or not. Otherwise the export works, but need manual removal of the first two lines.

Any good ideas?

Hi @pullasuti - welcome to the forums!

I can't seem to reproduce this. Are you exporting a parent with separately configurable settings, or relying on BCE's default module settings?

What version of PW and PHP are you using?

Thank you.

I've been trying it both ways with the same results

ProcessWire is 3.0.123 and PHP version 7.3.12

Could you do me a favor please? Do you have Tracy installed?

If you could enter:

bd($currentData);

after line 100 and post a screenshot of the output. It should look something like this:

image.png.895921af615c241346278439f1104977.png

The key thing is that you will need to enable the Dumps Recorder panel in Tracy and after you click the export button, you'll need to reload the page to see the results in the Dumps Recorder panel.

Thanks!

Ok, when I install Tracy, I can't reproduce the issue either. But after uninstalling Tracy, the error returns 🙂

I couldn't get the pagesToInclude to appear in the dump though, no matter if I set it or not.

Sorry, but uninstalling Tracy doesn't help replicate it for me either. 

I am curious - is this a new install of BCE, or did you upgrade from an older version? I get the feeling you may have upgraded from a version before the pagesToInclude option existed and there is a problem with the defaults not making it through when using separately configurable pages. Would you mind uninstalling and reinstalling BCE to see if that fixes it?

A new install, but I am working on the site in a new environment. BCE seems to export fine on the live site, but locally I keep getting the same error even after removing and reinstalling BCE, clearing cache, checking permissions...

Since it's working as it should on the live site, I feel I'm wasting your time with a configuration issue. I'll have to take a closer look at what's going on.

But thank you for now 🙂

With this module installed:

Parent pages with thousands of children do not open for editing in backend. They timeout with Error 500.

I post this here, in case someone else has the problem.

Thank @adrian for the hint.

Indeed. It once took me ages to find out why. Since then I keep it installed, but only activated for certain templates 🙂

Sorry @ceberlin and @dragan - I probably need to add pagination to the "edit" mode, but don't have the time at the moment - if anyone want to tackle it, PRs greatly accepted 🙂

Hello There,

First of all tks a lot for the module and I hope you (and every PW forum members) are doing fine.

I am using BCE  to import a few pages from an other CMS with the cvs import function. For the time being I am playing with the module to test it out. Everything works fine but the field pairing options.

I can import pages from the CSV file (without field paring) but when I am using the field pairing it doesn't work (no pages are created) or rather I don't know how to make it work.

I am using PW 3.0.148 (latest stable release)  et the module version 1.8.19. and php 7

I have simplified my use case to try to understand the problem. I have a template with 2 fields title and body. In this test I am trying to import only the title field.

here is the config screen

376228577_ScreenShot2020-03-23at15_33_21.thumb.png.1a2302a2cd83583b11e7dbd8f117357f.png

 

The process runs with no error (nothing in the logs) and this is the message I get.

 

1198911621_ScreenShot2020-03-23at15_11_10.thumb.png.b3693441d85084c890c918417b117e2c.png

But no pages are created under the parent pages. nothing !

here are my settings

2034923180_ScreenShot2020-03-23at15_14_08.thumb.png.a601997c52864fbc3ee4420ed5bd65fa.png

 

I went through the support board but didn't find any pointers at a solution.

If I run the same import without the field pairing option ... it s all good with all the fields.

Thanks for your help

Hi @antpre - sorry the problems. Looks like you have discovered an issue with field pairings when the "ignore first row" option in checked. If you uncheck that and of course remove that first row of column names everything should work fine.

I tried to fix it quickly, but there's more to it than I realized and I have a deadline today, so will have to look at fixing properly later, but hopefully the above suggestion will get you going.

      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

      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.
