Batch Child Editor

Recommended Posts

Upon a re-import of data (generated originally from BCE's export as csv feature), BCE appears to be treating the related field as type TINYTEXT (limiting to 255 characters), even though the field is defined as type MEDIUMTEXT  (collation: utf8_general_ci).

I've tested this a number of times.   Full paragraphs (i.e. greater than 1000 characters) that I copy into the field's textbox (using page edit) and then save, end up being cut off to 255 characters over and over upon a re-import of data.   Checked CSV and it contains the full paragraph.

Any idea as to why the predefined type is changing upon CSV import?

Can this module be used to export pages, add translations for content, and import them?

We have this huge website (over 7000 pages). We've used TextLanguage and TextAreaLanguage fields for all textual fields, and all image and file fields have their own description input boxes for different languages too.

Now we'd need to export all pages and send them to our translator so they can translate all site contents with their specialized programs, and a way to import the translations back to our site alongside the content in original language. Is this possible with BCE?

I've tried to export site contents, but can't figure out a way to include image/file descriptions, or any textual field's contents in other language(s).

This module has already been a huge help when initially building this site in question. We created most of the pages with Ryan's Import Pages from CSV module, and were able to modify them in batches with BCE quite a few times during further development. Massive time savings!

Hi!

I'm on 'PW' 3.0.21 with 'BCE' 1.3.0.

As for me 'BCE' in 'Export mode' doesn't shows 'AsmSelect' field to adjust children fields to be exported, as shown in your topic.

So according to the module description I must have

but only get

post-4381-0-75231900-1465646226_thumb.jp

I've also tried to install 'Select Options' fieldtype core module, that enables 'AsmSelect ' fields to be used in templates, but nothing had changed.

Despite of mentioned above, an API exporting still works well.

@tkaranka - multi-language is not currently possible, but we do have some functionality for multiple value fields which could be extended to support multilanguage - the catch is that I am not a ML user myself so I am not terribly familiar with it, although I would love to see BCE support it at some point. Either way I am glad it's been a big timesaver for you.

This option is only available if you define separately configurable pages:

and then you check this on the Settings tab of the page(s) selected above:

But this is only necessary if you them to be able to select the fields to export. You can also define them yourself on the Settings tab of the page, here:

Please let me know if it makes sense now!

When creating a bunch of children via CSV the pages aren't active in the alternative languages. Just caught me.

Thanks for the report soma - I really have played with ML much at all - can you give me a quick rundown of what BCE needs to do to make this work as needed?

You mean you haven't? Shame on you really!

Well you check for $languages more than 1 and then cycle each and set "status[langid]" to 1.

True - see I can't even get my only language correct :)

I have played a little with it, but never had a need to actually use it so just wanted clarification from you to save me a little time.

Hi @adrian,

I'm currently trying this module to import my news from my old website to PW (3.0.28). I have 2 questions:

  1. Do I'm suppose to be able to import html? All <h>, <p>, etc are lost when I import. Either by copy-paste the text or using a CSV file. I tried different ways to escape but didn't get it. I also deactivate HTML purifier and some other stuff in input tab of my body field.
  2. I have some glitchs with CSV export in images or files field. I created a mockup page (values were just the title of the field). You will see that in images/files, the content of body is copied. However, if images/files are filled, they export correctly.

Thanks!!

Mel

PS I didn't try yet multilanguages, I hope it works!! ;-)

Thanks adrian for this excellent module! I used it a lot in my projects.

Recently I upgraded my php version to 7 and found that the Add method and Update method for csv import(both by using textarea and files) failed. Only the title can be saved successfully but not other fields when I am using the Add method. However, I cannot confirm if it is the issue raised from the php upgrade. Just wonder anyone can use this module with php7?

I tried upgrade PW and reinstall the module but no luck. Thanks for reading.

Let me reply the above issue by myself.

I have tried using this module with freshly installed php7 and php5.64 xampp. The result is that the Add and Update function using csv is not working in php7 but php5.64. However I am not smart enough to figure out why is this happening. I hope this information is useful to somebody.

Hi @Karl_T and @mel47 - I am very sorry for the lack of response here. I have been low on time lately and spending most of it on TracyDebugger.

@mel47  - I'll look into the html tags being lost on import - any chance you could PM me the file you are trying to import?

@Karl_T - I know what the issues will be - just need to set myself up with a PHP7 testing environment and track them all down.

I'll see what I can do about getting both of these taken care of this week.

Thanks for your patience.

@Karl_T - I think your PHP7 issues should be fixed with the latest version. Please let me know if you find anything else amiss.

@mel47 - any chance of that test file that you are trying to import?

Sorry for the crazy delay on this @Soma but I think it should now all work as expected.

Would there be any reason to make this a config option? Would anyone not want new pages to be automatically activated? Could it be a module-wide setting, or would it need to be part of the interface where the new pages are added?

So to clarify, there are time when you wouldn't want newly added pages automatically activated in all other languages? (Sorry not a ML user so not sure how most people work). Do you think it should be checked or unchecked by default?

@mel47 - I took a look at the html tag issue - was a very easy fix (just committed) - sorry I hadn't come across this before. I was sanitizing as "text" - now I am using the "purify" sanitizer - hopefully that will work for everyone in all scenarios, but if anyone notices a problem, please let me know.

Yes, you are right. Very often only few pages have translation to all languages. ( Ukraine is not english speaking country and almost all blogs have only about 10% of posts translated to other languages ). 
It should be checked by default, IMHO.

An option when creating would be nice option. It's not always content pages bit also pages as categories etc. Maybe even some field in csv could be used to do it on a per entry basis. I would go for something like this. In the case of such a feature the more option to do such things the better.

Not sure how best to implement this cleanly. If it was a simple matter of checking if there was an additional field at the end of the row that was 1 or 0, that would be ok I guess, but with the CSV field pairing functionality and it's checks, I think it is going to start to get a bit messy, but if you think it would be really worthwhile, let me know and maybe I'll revisit it.

Of course you're right. I think it would be possible but maybe little messy. I'm not into this module much (used it once), but maybe on the child editor some feature for setting the active languages via checkboxes would be a better way?

Sounds useful, but I'll wait and see if there is demand. I don't honestly know how many people are using this module anyway, let alone with ML setups.

The latest version now uses a proper csv parser, not php's str_getcsv so now it supports line breaks within csv "fields". This should deal with the problem that @elabx reported earlier this year - sorry it's been so long coming.

I'd love to hear how this new parser works out for everyone's CSV importing needs. If it seems good, then I will also start using it in my Table CSV Import/Export module: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/table-csv-import-export/

Thanks for any feedback.

Does anyone else have anything outstanding that needs fixing?

Hi Adrian, thank you so much for the work you put into this module! It's really making life a lot easier.

I've read through this thread and seen that you considered setting the CSV field pairings per template rather than per page. Could you re-consider this option, or point me into the right direction of what I need to tweak to use the module this way? Alternatively it'd already be really helpful if it weren't necessary to add each configurable page separately, but to allow all children, grandchildren etc. of a page to be configurable too.

Since that probably helps understanding my issue, here's a little background: I work with a nested page structure in which the parent (A) has a number of children (B) which I'd like to import. Each of these children (B) will have between, on average, one and ten child elements (C), each of which again has at least one child. The current module settings would require me to add each of the children (B) and grandchildren (C) separately to the list of configurable pages in the module settings. Which also means my colleagues - who're not superusers - cannot import anything but the children on the first level (A) on their own, as they have no access to the module configuration and the settings tab, and B and C are only created with the imports.

(The easiest solution of course would be to import the pages without field pairings. However, that failed on my local testing environment every way I tried it. Even if the fields were all present in the CSV, and in the same order as in the template settings, the title field never imported correctly.)

Hi @Naz - glad you like the module and welcome to the forums.

I can totally understand the issue you are having with the way I have the configuration set up. Ideally having it by template would also be useful - unfortunately I don't think it will be a simple change so I am wondering if we can figure out why you are needing the field pairing to be set up if you have matching numbers of fields in the CSV file.

Are you using the latest version of BCE? Could you perhaps send me a test CSV file to work from?

@adrian sorry for the delay. I finally was able to test it, and it rocks! html tags are now imported correctly. I still have difficulties with export : when some fields (images or files) are empty, the content of body field is replicated.

Concerning multilanguage, could you give an hint of how to use it? Do I can import in 2 languages at the same time? Anyway, I discovered a workaround couple weeks ago. If I changed default language, I could import in this language. So I will do 2 imports, which is not so bad, considering I planned to used it only once to migrate my website content.

Thanks

      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      (please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about)

      I have had this module sitting in a 95% complete state for a while now and have finally made the push to get it out there. Thanks to @teppo for his Hanna Code Helper module which I referred to and borrowed from during development.
      http://modules.processwire.com/modules/hanna-code-dialog/
      https://github.com/Toutouwai/HannaCodeDialog
      HannaCodeDialog
      Provides a number of enhancements for working with Hanna Code tags in CKEditor. The main enhancement is that Hanna tags in a CKEditor field may be double-clicked to edit their attributes using core ProcessWire inputfields in a modal dialog.
      Requires the Hanna Code module and >= ProcessWire v3.0.0.
      Installation
      Install the HannaCodeDialog module using any of the normal methods.
      For any CKEditor field where you want the "Insert Hanna tag" dropdown menu to appear in the CKEditor toolbar, visit the field settings and add "HannaDropdown" to the "CKEditor Toolbar" settings field.
      Module configuration
      Visit the module configuration screen to set any of the following:
      Exclude prefix: Hanna tags named with this prefix will not appear in the CKEditor toolbar dropdown menu for Hanna tag insertion. Exclude Hanna tags: Hanna tags selected here will not appear in the CKEditor toolbar dropdown menu for Hanna tag insertion. Background colour of tag widgets: you can customise the background colour used for Hanna tags in CKEditor if you like. Dialog width: in pixels Dialog height: in pixels Features
      Insert tag from toolbar dropdown menu
      Place the cursor in the CKEditor window where you want to insert your Hanna tag, then select the tag from the "Insert Hanna tag" dropdown.

      Advanced: if you want to control which tags appear in the dropdown on particular pages or templates you can hook HannaCodeDialog::getDropdownTags. See the forum support thread for examples .
      Edit tag attributes in modal dialog
      Insert a tag using the dropdown or double-click an existing tag in the CKEditor window to edit the tag attributes in a modal dialog.

      Tags are widgets
      Hanna tags that have been inserted in a CKEditor window are "widgets" - they have a background colour for easy identification, are protected from accidental editing, and can be moved within the text by drag-and-drop.

      Options for tag attributes may be defined
      You can define options for a tag attribute so that editors must choose an option rather than type text. This is useful for when only certain strings are valid for an attribute and also has the benefit of avoiding typos.
      Add a new attribute for the Hanna tag, named the same as the existing attribute you want to add options for, followed by "__options". The options themselves are defined as a string, using a pipe character as a delimiter between options. Example for an existing attribute named "vegetables":
      vegetables__options=Spinach|Pumpkin|Celery|Tomato|Brussels Sprout|Potato You can define a default for an attribute as normal. Use a pipe delimiter if defining multiple options as the default, for example:
      vegetables=Tomato|Potato Dynamic options
      Besides defining static options as above, you can use one Hanna tag to dynamically generate options for another. For instance, you could create a Hanna tag that generates options based on images that have been uploaded to the page, or the titles of children of the page.
      Your Hanna tag that generates the options should echo a string of options delimited by pipe characters (i.e. the same format as a static options string).
      You will probably want to name the Hanna tag that generates the options so that it starts with an underscore (or whatever prefix you have configured as the "exclude" prefix in the module config), to avoid it appearing as an insertable tag in the HannaCodeDialog dropdown menu.
      Example for an existing attribute named "image":
      image__options=[[_images_on_page]] And the code for the _images_on_page tag:
      <?php $image_names = array(); $image_fields = $page->fields->find('type=FieldtypeImage')->explode('name'); foreach($image_fields as $image_field) { $image_names = array_unique( array_merge($image_names, $page->$image_field->explode('name') ) ); } echo implode('|', $image_names); Choice of inputfield for attribute
      You can choose the inputfield that is used for an attribute in the dialog.
      For text attributes the supported inputfields are text (this is the default inputfield for text attributes so it isn't necessary to specify it if you want it) and textarea. Note: any manual line breaks inside a textarea are removed because these will break the CKEditor tag widget.
      Inputfields that support the selection of a single option are select (this is the default inputfield for attributes with options so it isn't necessary to specify it if you want it) and radios.
      Inputfields that support the selection of multiple options are selectmultiple, asmselect and checkboxes.
      You can also specify a checkbox inputfield - this is not for attributes with defined options but will limit an attribute to an integer value of 1 or 0.
      The names of the inputfield types are case-insensitive.
      Example for an existing attribute named "vegetables":
      vegetables__type=asmselect Descriptions and notes for inputfields
      You can add a description or notes to an attribute and these will be displayed in the dialog.
      Example for an existing attribute named "vegetables":
      vegetables__description=Please select vegetables for your soup. vegetables__notes=Pumpkin and celery is a delicious combination. Notes
      When creating or editing a Hanna tag you can view a basic cheatsheet outlining the HannaCodeDialog features relating to attributes below the "Attributes" config inputfield.
      Advanced
      Define or manipulate options in a hook
      You can hook HannaCodeDialog::prepareOptions to define or manipulate options for a Hanna tag attribute. Your Hanna tag must include a someattribute__options attribute in order for the hook to fire. The prepareOptions method receives the following arguments that can be used in your hook:
      options_string Any existing string of options you have set for the attribute attribute_name The name of the attribute the options are for tag_name The name of the Hanna tag page The page being edited If you hook after HannaCodeDialog::prepareOptions then your hook should set $event->return to an array of option values, or an associative array in the form of $value => $label.
      Build entire dialog form in a hook
      You can hook after HannaCodeDialog::buildForm to add inputfields to the dialog form. You can define options for the inputfields when you add them. Using a hook like this can be useful if you prefer to configure inputfield type/options/descriptions/notes in your IDE rather than as extra attributes in the Hanna tag settings. It's also useful if you want to use inputfield settings such as showIf.
      When you add the inputfields you must set both the name and the id of the inputfield to match the attribute name.
      You only need to set an inputfield value in the hook if you want to force the value - otherwise the current values from the tag are automatically applied.
      To use this hook you only have to define the essential attributes (the "fields" for the tag) in the Hanna Code settings and then all the other inputfield settings can be set in the hook.
      Example buildForm() hook
      The Hanna Code attributes defined for tag "meal" (a default value is defined for "vegetables"):
      vegetables=Carrot meat cooking_style comments The hook code in /site/ready.php:
      $wire->addHookAfter('HannaCodeDialog::buildForm', function(HookEvent $event) { // The Hanna tag that is being opened in the dialog $tag_name = $event->arguments(0); // Other arguments if you need them /* @var Page $edited_page */ $edited_page = $event->arguments(1); // The page open in Page Edit $current_attributes = $event->arguments(2); // The current attribute values $default_attributes = $event->arguments(3); // The default attribute values // The form rendered in the dialog /* @var InputfieldForm $form */ $form = $event->return; if($tag_name === 'meal') { $modules = $event->wire('modules'); /* @var InputfieldCheckboxes $f */ $f = $modules->InputfieldCheckboxes; $f->name = 'vegetables'; // Set name to match attribute $f->id = 'vegetables'; // Set id to match attribute $f->label = 'Vegetables'; $f->description = 'Please select some vegetables.'; $f->notes = "If you don't eat your vegetables you can't have any pudding."; $f->addOptions(['Carrot', 'Cabbage', 'Celery'], false); $form->add($f); /* @var InputfieldRadios $f */ $f = $modules->InputfieldRadios; $f->name = 'meat'; $f->id = 'meat'; $f->label = 'Meat'; $f->addOptions(['Pork', 'Beef', 'Chicken', 'Lamb'], false); $form->add($f); /* @var InputfieldSelect $f */ $f = $modules->InputfieldSelect; $f->name = 'cooking_style'; $f->id = 'cooking_style'; $f->label = 'How would you like it cooked?'; $f->addOptions(['Fried', 'Boiled', 'Baked'], false); $form->add($f); /* @var InputfieldText $f */ $f = $modules->InputfieldText; $f->name = 'comments'; $f->id = 'comments'; $f->label = 'Comments for the chef'; $f->showIf = 'cooking_style=Fried'; $form->add($f); } }); Troubleshooting
      HannaCodeDialog includes and automatically loads the third-party CKEditor plugins Line Utilities and Widget. If you have added these plugins to your CKEditor field already for some purpose and experience problems with HannaCodeDialog try deactivating those plugins from the CKEditor field settings.

      Wire Mail SMTP

      An extension to the (new) WireMail base class that uses SMTP-transport

      This module integrates EmailMessage, SMTP and SASL php-libraries from Manuel Lemos into ProcessWire. I use this continously evolved libraries for about 10 years now and there was never a reason or occasion not to do so. I use it nearly every day in my office for automated composing and sending personalized messages with attachments, requests for Disposition Notifications, etc. Also I have used it for sending personalized Bulkmails many times.

      The WireMailSmtp module extends the new email-related WireMail base class introduced in ProcessWire 2.4.1 (while this writing, the dev-branch only).
       
      Here are Ryans announcement.



      Current Version 0.4.2
      Changelog: https://github.com/horst-n/WireMailSmtp/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
      get it from the Modules Directory Install and Configure

      Download the module into your site/modules/ directory and install it.

      In the config page you fill in settings for the SMTP server and optionaly the (default) sender, like email address, name and signature.
      You can test the smtp settings directly there. If it says "SUCCESS! SMTP settings appear to work correctly." you are ready to start using it in templates, modules or bootstrap scripts.


      Usage Examples
      The simplest way to use it:
      $numSent = wireMail($to, $from, $subject, $textBody); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody); // or with a default sender emailaddress on config page This will send a plain text message to each recipient.
       
      You may also use the object oriented style:
      $mail = wireMail(); // calling an empty wireMail() returns a wireMail object $mail->to($toEmail, $toName); $mail->from = $yourEmailaddress; // if you don't have set a default sender in config // or if you want to override that $mail->subject($subject); $mail->body($textBody); $numSent = $mail->send(); Or chained, like everywhere in ProcessWire:
      $mail = wireMail(); $numSent = $mail->to($toEmail)->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); Additionaly to the basics there are more options available with WireMailSmtp. The main difference compared to the WireMail BaseClass is the sendSingle option. With it you can set only one To-Recipient but additional CC-Recipients.
      $mail = wireMail(); $mail->sendSingle(true)->to($toEmail, $toName)->cc(array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com')); $numSent = $mail->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); The same as function call with options array:
      $options = array( 'sendSingle' => true, 'cc' => array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com') ); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody, $options); There are methods to your disposal to check if you have the right WireMail-Class and if the SMTP-settings are working:
      $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { // Uups, wrong WireMail-Class: do something to inform the user and quit echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; return; } if(!$mail->testConnection()) { // Connection not working: echo "<p>Couldn't connect to the SMTP server. Please check the {$mail->className} modules config settings!</p>"; return; }  
      A MORE ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD!
      You can add some debug code into a template file and call a page with it:
      $to = array('me@example.com'); $subject = 'Wiremail-SMTP Test ' . date('H:i:s') . ' äöü ÄÖÜ ß'; $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; } else { $mail->from = '--INSERT YOUR SENDER ADDRESS HERE --'; // <--- !!!! $mail->to($to); $mail->subject($subject); $mail->sendSingle(true); $mail->body("Titel\n\ntext text TEXT text text\n"); $mail->bodyHTML("<h1>Titel</h1><p>text text <strong>TEXT</strong> text text</p>"); $dump = $mail->debugSend(1); } So, in short, instead of using $mail->send(), use $mail->debugSend(1) to get output on a frontend testpage.
      The output is PRE formatted and contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection, like this one:
       
      Following are a ...


      List of all options and features


      testConnection () - returns true on success, false on failures


      sendSingle ( true | false ) - default is false

      sendBulk ( true | false ) - default is false, Set this to true if you have lots of recipients (50+)


      to ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      cc ($recipients) - only available with mode sendSingle, one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      bcc ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

       
      from = 'person@example.com' - emailaddress, can be set in module config (called Sender Emailaddress) but it can be overwritten here

      fromName = 'Name Surname' - optional, can be set in module config (called Sender Name) but it can be overwritten here


      priority (3) - 1 = Highest | 2 = High | 3 = Normal | 4 = Low | 5 = Lowest

      dispositionNotification () or notification () - request a Disposition Notification


      subject ($subject) - subject of the message

      body ($textBody) - use this one alone to create and send plainText emailmessages

      bodyHTML ($htmlBody) - use this to create a Multipart Alternative Emailmessage (containing a HTML-Part and a Plaintext-Part as fallback)

      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)

      attachment ($filename, $alternativeBasename = "") - add attachment file, optionally alternative basename


      send () - send the message(s) and return number of successful sent messages


      debugSend(1) - returns and / or outputs a (pre formatted) dump that contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection. (See above the example code under ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD for further instructions!)


      getResult () - returns a dump (array) with all recipients (to, cc, bcc) and settings you have selected with the message, the message subject and body, and lists of successfull addresses and failed addresses,


      logActivity ($logmessage) - you may log success if you want

      logError ($logmessage) - you may log warnings, too. - Errors are logged automaticaly
       
       
      useSentLog (true | false) - intended for usage with e.g. third party newsletter modules - tells the send() method to make usage of the sentLog-methods - the following three sentLog methods are hookable, e.g. if you don't want log into files you may provide your own storage, or add additional functionality here

      sentLogReset ()  - starts a new LogSession - Best usage would be interactively once when setting up a new Newsletter

      sentLogGet ()  - is called automaticly within the send() method - returns an array containing all previously used emailaddresses

      sentLogAdd ($emailaddress)  - is called automaticly within the send() method

      Sanitizer EasySlugger
      Allows the use of the EasySlugger library as Sanitizer methods.
      Installation
      Install the Sanitizer EasySlugger module.
      Usage
      The module adds four new sanitizer methods.
      slugger($string, $options)
      Similar to $sanitizer->pageName() - I'm not sure if there are any advantages over that method. Included because it is one of the methods offered by EasySlugger.
      $slug = $sanitizer->slugger('Lorem Ipsum'); // Result: lorem-ipsum utf8Slugger($string, $options)
      Creates slugs from non-latin alphabets.
      $slug = $sanitizer->utf8Slugger('这个用汉语怎么说'); // Result: zhe-ge-yong-han-yu-zen-me-shuo seoSlugger($string, $options)
      Augments the string before turning it into a slug. The conversions are related to numbers, currencies, email addresses and other common symbols.
      $slug = $sanitizer->seoSlugger('The price is $5.99'); // Result: the-price-is-5-dollars-99-cents See the EasySlugger readme for some more examples.
      seoUtf8Slugger($string, $options)
      A combination of utf8Slugger() and seoSlugger().
      $slug = $sanitizer->seoUtf8Slugger('价钱是 $5.99'); // Result: jia-qian-shi-5-dollars-99-cents $options argument
      Each of the methods can take an $options array as a second argument.
      separator (string): the character that separates words in the slug. Default: - unique (bool): Determines whether a random suffix is added at the end of the slug. Default: false $slug = $sanitizer->utf8Slugger('这个用汉语怎么说', ['separator' => '_', 'unique' => true]); // Result: zhe_ge_yong_han_yu_zen_me_shuo_3ad66c4

      If you've ever needed to insert links to a large number of files within CKEditor you may have found that the standard PW link modal is a somewhat slow way to do it.
      This module provides a quicker way to insert links to files on the page being edited. You can insert a link to an individual file, or insert an unordered list of links to all files on the page with a single click.
      CKEditor Link Files
      Adds a menu to CKEditor to allow the quick insertion of links to files on the page being edited.

      Features
      Hover a menu item to see the "Description" of the corresponding file (if present). Click a menu item to insert a link to the corresponding file at the current cursor position. The filename is used as the link text. If you Alt-click a menu item the file description is used as the link text (with fallback to filename if no description entered). If text is currently selected in the editor then the selected text is used as the link text. Click "* Insert links to all files *" to insert an unordered list of links to all files on the page. Also works with the Alt-click option. Menu is built via AJAX so newly uploaded files are included in the menu without the page needing to be saved. However, descriptions are not available for newly uploaded files until the page is saved. There is an option in the module config to include files from Repeater fields in the edited page. Nested Repeater fields (files inside a Repeater inside another Repeater) are not supported. Installation
      Install the CKEditor Link Files module.
      For any CKEditor field where you want the "Insert link to file" dropdown menu to appear in the CKEditor toolbar, visit the field settings and add "LinkFilesMenu" to the "CKEditor Toolbar" settings field.
