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?

      This is a new module that 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) 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.
      Beta release
      Note that I consider this a Beta release. Since the module is relatively aggressive in deleting some caches, I would advise you to install in on a test environment before using it on a live site.
      Let me know if you're getting any errors, have trouble using the module or if you have suggestions for improvement!
      In particular, can someone let me know if this module causes any problems with the ProCache module? I don't own or use it, so I can't check. As far as I can tell, ProCache uses a folder inside the cache directory to cache static pages, so my module should be able to clear the ProCache site cache as well, I'd appreciate it if someone can test that for me.
      Future plans
      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!

      This module is (yet another) way for implementing a cookie management solution.
      Of course there are several other possibilities:
      - https://processwire.com/talk/topic/22920-klaro-cookie-consent-manager/
      - https://github.com/webmanufaktur/CookieManagementBanner
      - https://github.com/johannesdachsel/cookiemonster
      - https://www.oiljs.org/
      - ... and so on ...
      In this module you can configure which kind of cookie categories you want to manage:

      You can also enable the support for respecting the Do-Not-Track (DNT) header to don't annoy users, who already decided for all their browsing experience.
      Currently there are four possible cookie groups:
      - Necessary (always enabled)
      - Statistics
      - Marketing
      - External Media
      All groups can be renamed, so feel free to use other cookie group names. I just haven't found a way to implement a "repeater like" field as configurable module field ...
      When you want to load specific scripts ( like Google Analytics, Google Maps, ...) only after the user's content to this specific category of cookies, just use the following script syntax:
      <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="statistics" data-src="/path/to/your/statistic/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing" data-src="/path/to/your/mareketing/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="external_media" data-src="/path/to/your/external-media/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing">console.log("Inline scripts are also working!");</script> The type has to be "optin" to get recognized by PrivacyWire, the data-attributes are giving hints, how the script shall be loaded, if the data-category is within the cookie consents of the user. These scripts are loaded asynchronously after the user made the decision.
      If you want to give the users the possibility to change their consent, you can use the following Textformatter:
      [[privacywire-choose-cookies]] It's planned to add also other Textformatters to opt-out of specific cookie groups or delete the whole consent cookie.
      You can also add a custom link to output the banner again with a link / button with following class:
      <a href="#" class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</a> <button class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</button> This module is still in development, but we already use it on several production websites.
      You find it here: https://github.com/blaueQuelle/privacywire/tree/master
      Download: https://github.com/blaueQuelle/privacywire/archive/master.zip
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂

      Admin Page Tree Multiple Sorting
      ClassName: ProcessPageListMultipleSorting
      Extend the ordinary sort of children of a template in the admin page tree with multiple properties. For each template, you can define your own rule. Write each template (template-name) in a row, followed by a colon and then the additional field names for sorting.
      Example: All children of the template "blog" to be sorted in descending order according to the date of creation, then descending by modification date, and then by title. Type:
      blog: -created, -modified, title  Installation
      Copy the files for this module to /site/modules/ProcessPageListMultipleSorting/ In admin: Modules > Check for new modules. Install Module "Admin Page Tree Multible Sorting". Alternative in ProcessWire 2.4+
      Login to ProcessWire backend and go to Modules Click tab "New" and enter Module Class Name: "ProcessPageListMultipleSorting" Click "Download and Install"   Compatibility   I have currently tested the module only under PW 2.6+, but think that it works on older versions too. Maybe someone can give a feedback.     Download   PW-Repo: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-page-list-multiple-sorting/ GitHub: https://github.com/FlipZoomMedia/Processwire-ProcessPageListMultipleSorting     I hope someone can use the module. Have fun and best regards, David

      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 "https://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.
