Hi.

First of all, thanks for this great module! 
I do have one question: Is there a reason why this module is not "singular"?
To be clearer: adding ""singular": true" to the jsonfile.

I am having the automatic send option enabled, and use some custom api code to add new users in frontend-scope and backend.
According to the json info file the module gets autoloaded on "template=admin". So in Frontend I have to use $this->modules->get("EmailNewUserPortal");

Because my custom code gets executed in frontend and admin, I would have to check where I am, because if I do $this->modules->get("EmailNewUserPortal"); in backend there are two instances of the module running. This results in sending the NewUser Mail twice.

After adding the singular Option to your module, this issue has gone.
Perhaps there is another need to be not singular here wich I didn´t see? Just wanted to ask...

Thanks...

Sorry I missed this post, but I am hoping by now you have realized that this is an issue with your wireMail setup and not this module.

Just an oversight on my part - thanks for the heads up and the solution - much appreciated.

It is fixed now!

Hi,

I'd like to add a styled email to new users but when I use the Email body field i can't use html. What would be the best way to add a custom email template?

Hi @Timothy de Vos - I could simply support HTML in that email body field and have the email sent as HTML along with a plain text version (automatically generated from the HTML version). I think that would be the easiest approach.

Would that suit your needs?

You don't sound thrilled :)

Do you have any other ideas / preferences?

I could add support for pulling in a template stored in the file system, but I feel like that might be overkill for a simple email like this - I can't see it requiring very much structure/styling for a simple account registration email.

Sorry... I mean that would be perfect! :)

And you're right it doesn't need much styling. I just like it to have the same feeling as the rest of the website.

Right now i've added a little extra code to have an extra option like {adminURL}. I'm registrating users that only work on the front-end. Each user is bound to a location and for the front-end login url I need the parent name of the location. So for now i added this extra code to the parseBody function:

  elseif($field == "location") {
      $pageId = $page->$field;
      $replacement = "http://".wire($pageId)->parent->name.".".wire('config')->httpHost;
  }

i don't know if there is an other easier way to do this?

I have committed a new version which:

  • adds a new "From Name" field setting so that the email new users receive comes from your name/email, not just a raw email address.
  • adds support for HTML body text. A plain text version will be generated automatically from this and both sent with proper headers.
  • makes the parseBody method hookable, so you can define more complex field tag replacements.
    For example, this will accomplish @Timothy de Vos's needs:
$this->wire()->addHookBefore('EmailNewUser::parseBody', null, function($event) {
	$page = $event->arguments[2];
	$pageId = $page->location;
    $replacement = "http://".wire($pageId)->parent->name.".".wire('config')->httpHost;
	$event->arguments(0, str_replace('{location}', $replacement, $event->arguments[0]));
});

 

Please let me know if you have any problems with this new version!

Thanks to Timothy for helping to test this new version and as he noted, if you want full HTML support in the supplied CkEditor body input, you'll need to set:

config.allowedContent = true

I've just upgraded to the latest version (0.3.1) from a previous version which was working OK. I'm now getting the following error when trying to send the test email from admin (this previously worked):

Call to a member function new() on a non-object (line 158 of ***/site/modules/EmailNewUser/EmailNewUser.module) 

I see from the file in question that it's doing things with the password a that point but I'm not using the password generator at that point.

BTW, the site is running PW v2.7.2

Any ideas?

I think the issue might be the PW version. I started using $mail->new() which I think maybe wasn't available in that version. Could you please clarify that it works if you change that line to:

$mailer = wireMail();

Hi, the error no longer appears but the test email never arrives.

Please try the version I just committed - I have just tested here on PW 2.7.2 and it's working fine.

Note that I am using horst's WireMailSMTP module, but I don't think that should matter.

Hi Adrian,

Yup, that now works perfectly, thanks for such a speedy response!

As it happens I'm also using Horst's WIreMailSMTP :-)

Hi,

Does anyone know if it's possible to set the "Email Body" in multiple languages?

It is now - please check the latest version just committed.

It now support ML subject and body fields and the user will receive the version associated with the language that you set in their profile.

Let me know if you find any problems.

Hi!
Great module - thanks for this, adrian!
Is there any possibility to send this user-email to admin at the same time ( without using another module )?
Thanks!!

@itsberni,

Unless I misunderstand, you should set Bcc to the admin email prior to sending. The email copy will be sent in the same language. If you want the admin to receive the email in a different language, then you will have to repeat the process a second time addressing the email only to admin, and in their language.

Hi @itsberni,

I apologize. I just looked at the module and there is no Bcc option. As it is, you might try appending the admin email to the To address.

Hi @itsberni - sorry for such a delayed response - I am just back from an extended time away from my computer.

I have added a new Bcc email field to the module config settings. All emails will be Bcc'd to the entered address automatically.

Please let me know how it goes for you.

Thanks for implementing the Bcc field, @adrian! It works great on sites using WireMailSmtp.

However, on a site using the default WireMail implementation, the bcc() call will fail and abort the whole process. It seems the default WireMail interface does not (yet) have bcc() defined while it is available in WireMailSmtp and others.

I'd suggest doing a simple check for the bcc function. For that particular project, I have successfully used the following to fix it. Instead of (line 177):

if($this->data['bccEmail'] != '') $mailer->bcc($this->data['bccEmail']);

I inserted:

if($this->data['bccEmail'] != '') {
  if (method_exists($mailer, 'bcc')) {
    $mailer->bcc($this->data['bccEmail']);
  }
  else {
    $mailer->to($this->data['bccEmail']);
  }
} 

Since the default WireMail will send each to() recipient as a separate mail, the second to() call acts as a de facto bcc address. Maybe that will be enough, maybe you can think of a more sophisticated way of solving it.

Hi @d'Hinnisdaël - thanks for noticing this issue and putting together a fix. I am actually wondering if there is actually any point in using the bcc option even when it's available. Maybe I should just relabel it as "Notify other admin users" and make use of additional "To" email addresses. Maybe it should even support a comma-seperated list in case you want to notify more than one user.

Any thoughts on this before I implement?

      Repeater Images
      Adds options to modify Repeater fields to make them convenient for "page-per-image" usage. Using a page-per-image approach allows for additional fields to be associated with each image, to record things such as photographer, date, license, links, etc.
      When Repeater Images is enabled for a Repeater field the module changes the appearance of the Repeater inputfield to be similar (but not identical) to an Images field. The collapsed view shows a thumbnail for each Repeater item, and items can be expanded for field editing.
      Screencast

      Installation
      Install the Repeater Images module.
      Setup
      Create an image field to use in the Repeater field. Recommended settings for the image field are "Maximum files allowed" set to 1 and "Formatted value" set to "Single item (null if empty)". Create a Repeater field. Add the image field to the Repeater. If you want additional fields in the Repeater create and add these also. Repeater Images configuration
      Tick the "Activate Repeater Images for this Repeater field" checkbox. In the "Image field within Repeater" dropdown select the single image field. You must save the Repeater field settings to see any newly added Image fields in the dropdown. Adjust the image thumbnail height if you want (unlike the core Images field there is no slider to change thumbnail height within Page Edit). Note: the depth option for Repeater fields is not compatible with the Repeater Images module.
      Image uploads feature
      There is a checkbox to activate image uploads. This feature allows users to quickly and easily add images to the Repeater Images field by uploading them to an adjacent "upload" field.
      To use this feature you must add the image field selected in the Repeater Images config to the template of the page containing the Repeater Images field - immediately above or below the Repeater Images field would be a good position.
      It's recommended to set the label for this field in template context to "Upload images" or similar, and set the visibility of the field to "Closed" so that it takes up less room when it's not being used. Note that when you drag images to a closed Images field it will automatically open. You don't need to worry about the "Maximum files allowed" setting because the Repeater Images module overrides this for the upload field.
      New Repeater items will be created from the images uploaded to the upload field when the page is saved. The user can add descriptions and tags to the images while they are still in the upload field and these will be retained in the Repeater items. Images are automatically deleted from the upload field when the page is saved.
      Tips
      The "Use accordion mode?" option in the Repeater field settings is useful for keeping the inputfield compact, with only one image item open for editing at a time. The "Repeater item labels" setting determines what is shown in the thumbnail overlay on hover. Example for an image field named "image": {image.basename} ({image.width}x{image.height})

      Hello There Guys.

      I am in the process of getting into making my first modules for PW and i had a question for you PHP and PW gurus in here.

      I was wondering how i could use an external library, lets say TwitterOAuth in my PW module.
      Link to library
      https://twitteroauth.com/

      Would the code below be correct or how would i go about this:
      <?PHP namespace ProcessWire; /* load the TwitterOAuth library from my Module folder */ require "twitteroauth/autoload.php"; use Abraham\TwitterOAuth\TwitterOAuth; class EyeTwitter extends WireData,TwitterOAuth implements Module { /* vars */ protected $twConnection; /* extend parent TwitterOAuth contructor $connection = new TwitterOAuth(CONSUMER_KEY, CONSUMER_SECRET, $access_token, $access_token_secret); */ public function myTwitterConnection ($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret) { /* save the connection for use later */ $this->twConnection = TwitterOAuth::__construct($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret); } } ?> Am i on the right trail here or i am barking up the wrong tree?
      I don´t need a complete solution, i just wonder if i am including the external library the right way.
      If not, then give me a few hint´s and i will figure it out.

      Thanks a bunch.

      Hello,
      this module can publish content of a Processwire page on a Facebook page, triggered by saving the Processwire page.
      To set it up, configure the module with a Facebook app ID, secret and a Page ID. Following is additional configuration on Facebook for developers:
      Minimum Required Facebook App configuration:
      on Settings -> Basics, provide the App Domains, provide the Site URL, on Settings -> Advanced, set the API version (has been tested up to v3.3), add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "http://www.example.com/processwire/page/" to field Valid OAuth Redirect URIs. This module is configurable as follows:
      Templates: posts can take place only for pages with the defined templates. On/Off switch: specify a checkbox field that will not allow the post if checked. Specify a message and/or an image for the post.
      Usage
      edit the desired PW page and save; it will post right after the initial Facebook log in and permission granting. After that, an access token is kept.
       
      Download
      PW module directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/auto-fb-post/ Github: https://github.com/kastrind/AutoFbPost   Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is utilized.

      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup and InputfieldRuntimeMarkup
       
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-runtime-markup/
      GitHub: https://github.com/kongondo/FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup
      As of 11 May 2019 ProcessWire versions earlier than 3.x are not supported
      This module allows for custom markup to be dynamically (PHP) generated and output within a page's edit screen (in Admin).
       
      The value for the fieldtype is generated at runtime. No data is saved in the database. The accompanying InputfieldRuntimeMarkup is only used to render/display the markup in the page edit screen.
       
      The field's value is accessible from the ProcessWire API in the frontend like any other field, i.e. it has access to $page and $pages.
       
      The module was commissioned/sponsored by @Valan. Although there's certainly other ways to achieve what this module does, it offers a dynamic and flexible alternative to generating your own markup in a page's edit screen whilst also allowing access to that markup in the frontend. Thanks Valan!
       
      Warning/Consideration
      Although access to ProcessWire's Fields' admin pages is only available to Superusers, this Fieldtype will evaluate and run the custom PHP Code entered and saved in the field's settings (Details tab). Utmost care should therefore be taken in making sure your code does not perform any CRUD operations!! (unless of course that's intentional) The value for this fieldtype is generated at runtime and thus no data is stored in the database. This means that you cannot directly query a RuntimeMarkup field from $pages->find(). Usage and API
       
      Backend
      Enter your custom PHP snippet in the Details tab of your field (it is RECOMMENDED though that you use wireRenderFile() instead. See example below). Your code can be as simple or as complicated as you want as long as in the end you return a value that is not an array or an object or anything other than a string/integer.
       
      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup has access to $page (the current page being edited/viewed) and $pages. 
       
      A very simple example.
      return 'Hello'; Simple example.
      return $page->title; Simple example with markup.
      return '<h2>' . $page->title . '</h2>'; Another simple example with markup.
      $out = '<h1>hello '; $out .= $page->title; $out .= '</h1>'; return $out; A more advanced example.
      $p = $pages->get('/about-us/')->child('sort=random'); return '<p>' . $p->title . '</p>'; An even more complex example.
      $str =''; if($page->name == 'about-us') { $p = $page->children->last(); $str = "<h2><a href='{$p->url}'>{$p->title}</a></h2>"; } else { $str = "<h2><a href='{$page->url}'>{$page->title}</a></h2>"; } return $str; Rather than type your code directly in the Details tab of the field, it is highly recommended that you placed all your code in an external file and call that file using the core wireRenderFile() method. Taking this approach means you will be able to edit your code in your favourite text editor. It also means you will be able to type more text without having to scroll. Editing the file is also easier than editing the field. To use this approach, simply do:
      return wireRenderFile('name-of-file');// file will be in /site/templates/ If using ProcessWire 3.x, you will need to use namespace as follows:
      return ProcessWire\wireRenderFile('name-of-file'); How to access the value of RuntimeMarkup in the frontend (our field is called 'runtime_markup')
       
      Access the field on the current page (just like any other field)
      echo $page->runtime_markup; Access the field on another page
      echo $pages->get('/about-us/')->runtime_markup; Screenshots
       
      Backend
