@antpre - I've just committed a new version - field pairings will now work regardless of the "ignore first row" setting. Please try it out when you get a chance and let me know if you still have any problems.

@adrian, tested it just now with the new version. It worked like a charm.
Thanks

Hi everybody,

I am running in a problem when I try to import a date into a dateTime field type (the fields remain blank after the import, if I import the same data in a standard text field the import result is ok).

Is the DateTime field type supported in the CSV import function of BCE ?
Thanks & stay safe

@antpre - it's working for me with some simple testing. What format is the date in the CSV? What about the settings of the datetime field that it is being imported into - anything special?

@adrian the date in the csv is dd/mm/yyyy and the datetime field is input format is set to the same.

But thanks for the pointer. I will dig a bit on fromat tomorrow.

I tried both timestamp and YYYY-MM-DD and they worked fine, so I expect that will be the issue.

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?

I've just tried exporting some pages and I'm getting the same error as above in the exported csv file. Then when I try and reimport the csv it's only importing the first line of the csv file.

I've tried uninstalling/resinstalling the module but to no effect.

@houseofdeadleg - can you send me the module settings data - this module (http://modules.processwire.com/modules/module-settings-import-export/) makes it really easy. Otherwise, if you have Tracy installed, open up the BCE module settings page and then open the Adminer panel and copy the json from the data field.

Can you also post (here or PM) the CSV that you are trying to import that only imports the first line.

@adrian settings info is below. I've just noticed, after reading through a few other recent posts, that I don't seem to have the field pairing options – something that would be really useful.

{"BatchChildEditor":{"version":"1.8.20","settings":{"enabledTemplates":[],"enabledPages":[],"configurablePages":[],"editModes":["edit","add","update","replace","export"],"defaultMode":"edit","overwriteNames":"","allowOverrideOverwriteNames":"","disableContentProtection":"","allowTemplateChanges":"","allowAdminPages":"","trashOrDelete":"trash","listerDefaultSort":"sort","listerColumns":["title","path","modified","modified_users_id"],"defaultFilter":"","listerConfigurable":null,"csvOptions":["upload"],"csvOptionsCollapsed":[],"csvImportFieldSeparator":",","csvImportFieldEnclosure":"\"","ignoreFirstRow":"","importMultipleValuesSeparator":"|","newImageFirst":"","allowOverrideCsvImportSettings":"","csvExportFieldSeparator":",","csvExportFieldEnclosure":"\"","csvExportExtension":"csv","columnsFirstRow":1,"exportMultipleValuesSeparator":"|","formatExport":"","allowOverrideCsvExportSettings":"","position":"newTab","insertAfterField":false,"removeChildrenTab":1,"loadOpen":null,"openMethod":"normal","tabName":"Batch Child Editor","editModeTitle":"Edit Child Pages","editModeDescription":"You can edit the page titles, sort, delete, add new, or edit pages in a modal popup.","editModeNotes":"","listerModeTitle":"List Child Pages","listerModeDescription":"View child pages in a Lister interface.","listerModeNotes":"","addModeTitle":"Add Child Pages","addModeDescription":"Editing this field will add all the child page titles listed here to the existing set of child pages.","addModeNotes":"Each row is a separate page.\n\nYou can also use CSV formatted lines for populating all text/numeric fields on the page, eg:\n\"Bolivia, Plurinational State of\",BO,\"BOLIVIA, PLURINATIONAL STATE OF\",BOL,68","updateModeTitle":"Update Child Pages","updateModeDescription":"Editing this field will update the field values of the pages represented here.","updateModeNotes":"WARNING: If you use this option, the content of all fields in existing pages will be replaced.\n\nEach row is a separate page.\n\nYou can also use CSV formatted lines for populating all text/numeric fields on the page, eg:\n\"Bolivia, Plurinational State of\",BO,\"BOLIVIA, PLURINATIONAL STATE OF\",BOL,68","replaceModeTitle":"Replace Child Pages","replaceModeDescription":"Editing this field will replace all the child page titles represented here.","replaceModeNotes":"WARNING: If you use this option, all the existing child \\ProcessWire\\pages(and grandchildren) will be deleted and new ones created.\n\nEach row is a separate page.\n\nYou can also use CSV formatted lines for populating all text/numeric fields on the page, eg:\n\"Bolivia, Plurinational State of\",BO,\"BOLIVIA, PLURINATIONAL STATE OF\",BOL,68","exportModeTitle":"Export Child Pages","exportModeDescription":"Creates a CSV file with one row for each child page.","exportModeNotes":"","uninstall":"","submit_save_module":"Submit"}}}

I can't share the csv file I'm afraid.

Thanks @houseofdeadleg for those settings.

1) Testing here I am not seeing any problems, but I have committed a new version that should fix that notice that is showing up in your CSV export.

2) The field pairing options are available if you define Configurable Pages under the "Where editing tools are available and separately configurable" section. You then define the field pairing on the settings tab of the page whose children you are exporting.

3) You don't need to share sensitive data - please just create a minimum test case CSV file that shows the problem with only the first line importing. Also, are you on Windows, Linux, or MacOS? I am thinking it might be a lined ending issue. Also, what PHP version are you running?

Dear Adrian,

Does the export function of BCE supports multi language text fields ? I saw you mentioning in this threat that it would be a good addition. But not sure whether you implemented it or not.

Thanks again for the great module.

OK got my answer lol.

BCE exports the value in the language of the user. Clever !!!

@adrian is there a way to let the CSV export to show absolute path to any files/images? I noticed that the exported data only shows the filename itself without any context.

Thx
Rudy

      Needed a really simple solution to embed audio files within page content and couldn't find a module for that, so here we go. Textformatter Audio Embed works a bit like Textformatter Video Embed, converting this:
      <p>https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3</p> Into this:
      <audio controls class="TextformatterAudioEmbed"> <source src="https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3" type="audio/mpeg"> </audio> The audio element has pretty good browser support, so quite often this should be enough to get things rolling 🙂

      Hi all, I am going round and round in circles and would greatly appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction.
      I am sure I am doing something dumb, or missing something I should know, but don't. Story of my life 😉

      Playing round with a module and my basic problem is I want to upload an image and also use InputfieldMarkup and other Inputfields.
      Going back and forth between trying an api generated page defining Fieldgroup, Template, Fields, Page and the InputfieldWrapper method.

      InputfieldWrapper method works great for all the markup stuff, but I just can't wrap my head around what I need to do to save the image to the database.
      Can generate a Field for it (thanks to the api investigations) but not sure what I need to do to link the Inputfield to that. Tried a lot of stuff from various threads, of varying dates without luck.
      Undoubtedly not helped by me not knowing enough.

      Defining Fieldgroup etc through the api seems nice and clean and works great for the images but I can't wrap my head around how/if I can add/append/hook the InputfieldWrapper/InputfieldMarkup stuff I'd like to include on that template as well. Not even sure if it should be where it is on ___install with the Fieldtype stuff or later on . Not getting Tracy errors, just nothing seems to happen.
      If anyone has any ideas or can point me in the right direction, that would be great because at the moment I am stumbling round in the dark.

      Since it's featured in ProcessWire Weekly #310, now is the time to make it official:
      Here is Twack!
      I really like the following introduction from ProcessWire Weekly, so I hope it is ok if I use it here, too. Look at the project's README for more details!
      Twack is a new — or rather newish — third party module for ProcessWire that provides support for reusable components in an Angular-inspired way. Twack is implemented as an installable module, and a collection of helper and base classes. Key concepts introduced by this module are:
      Components, which have separate views and controllers. Views are simple PHP files that handle the output for the component, whereas controllers extend the TwackComponent base class and provide additional data handling capabilities. Services, which are singletons that provide a shared service where components can request data. The README for Twack uses a NewsService, which returns data related to news items, as an example of a service. Twack components are designed for reusability and encapsulating a set of features for easy maintainability, can handle hierarchical or recursive use (child components), and are simple to integrate with an existing site — even when said site wasn't originally developed with Twack.
      A very basic Twack component view could look something like this:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; ?> <h1>Hello World!</h1> And here's how you could render it via the API:
      <?php namespace Processwire; $twack = $modules->get('Twack'); $hello = $twack->getNewComponent('HelloWorld'); ?> <html> <head> <title>Hello World</title> </head> <body> <?= $hello->render() ?> </body> </html> Now, just to add a bit more context, here's a simple component controller:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; class HelloWorld extends TwackComponent { public function __construct($args) { parent::__construct($args); $this->title = 'Hello World!'; if(isset($args['title'])) { $this->title = $args['title']; } } } As you can see, there's not a whole lot new stuff to learn here if you'd like to give Twack a try in one of your projects. The Twack README provides a really informative and easy to follow introduction to all the key concepts (as well as some additional examples) so be sure to check that out before getting started. 
      Twack is in development for several years and I use it for every new project I build. Also integrated is an easy to handle workflow to make outputs as JSON, so it can be used to build responses for a REST-api as well. I will work that out in one section in the readme as well. 
      If you want to see the module in an actual project, I have published the code of www.musical-fabrik.de in a repository. It runs completely with Twack and has an app-endpoint with ajax-output as well.
      I really look forward to hear, what you think of Twack🥳!

      Page Reference Default Value
      Most ProcessWire core inputfield types that can be used with a Page Reference field support a "Default value" setting. This module extends support for default values to the following core inputfield types:
      Page List Select Page List Select Multiple Page Autocomplete (single and multiple) Seeing as these inputfield types only support the selection of pages a Page List Select / Page List Select Multiple is used for defining the default value instead of the Text / Textarea field used by the core for other inputfield types. This makes defining a default value a bit more user-friendly.
      Note that as per the core "Default value" setting, the Page Reference field must be set to "required" in order for the default value to be used.
