@Vizz. Your site does not seem to be a ProcessWire website. I am moving this to 'Pub - Dev Talk for now. I am giving you the benefit of doubt that you are not a spammer :-). If you have any specific questions regarding ProcessWire please post in the appropriate forums. 


I've edited the topic title since it read like you are just advertising your own web development business (nothing wrong with that) but in the guise of asking a question. I have also deleted a link to your site.... for now...

I don´t like wordpress...easy to hack. :)

 

 

Mod note:

Blad, thanks for alerting Vizz about a potential vulnerability on his/her WordPress site.

I wrote you a private message but my recommendation is that you change to processwire. Sorry for the tests. Everything is as it was

No i am not a spammer, i have registered legally :) And my concern was actually in perspective of analyzer. My website is not complete yet to do marketing . I really need some analyzer help to make it more better. Thanks

If you want to check the safety of wordpress repositories you have to search for:

Index of:"/wp-backup-plus" 

And the core of wordpress:

Index of:"/wp-uploads"

I repeat that it is only searches without malice.

That is why I don´t like Wordpress. If you install a module you run the risk of sql-injection (easy).

Hi everyone!

I think we are might be heading into dangerous territory here. I don't think any forum should become a place for bashing another product. This forum has by far the best community I have ever experienced - let's make sure that as we grow that we keep it that way :)

This thread is a bit of a mix - it sounds like there has been some PM'ing going on to suggest fixes, which is positive and helpful. I also think that some of the posts here about WP bringing down PW are probably in jest :)

If one of us finds a site mentioned here that is vulnerable (no matter the CMS), I think the best approach would be to contact them directly (PM etc) with some advice on how to remedy it, rather than criticizing their choice of CMS. Point them to resources that will help them. There are several groups out there that identify security holes in a variety of software packages, including open source CMS's. They usually contact the developers first to ensure they have a chance to fix the issue before it becomes public.

Certainly Wordpress has its issues for inexperienced sys admins, but it can be made much more secure with a variety of simple techniques that are widely available with a quick google search. There are even some plugins designed to block a variety of common attacks. But Wordpress is certainly not alone - unfortunately no system is immune to vulnerabilities, especially those that allows for third party plugins/modules. 

Above all, let's not come across as too superior - it might just bite us one day!

Thanks for listening to my thoughts on this - I am not aiming direct criticism at anyone - just trying to establish a general approach to these types of topics.

Any thoughts?

@adrian: You are right! I do not know why there is always a desire to compare to Wordpress. Drupal and Typo3 may be more appropriate targets :). But I guess that frienly tone of Ryan's and others like yourself will help moving PW forward much better than any critisizm.

Anyway, the whole mess started with Vizz trying to promote another CMS and her services in this and some other topics. As far as I know this is the first case of a kind. We should decide how to take on this: should we:

a) just ignore hoping everyone here will not go for WP, or

b) try to stop this kind of practice somehow.

@Vizz: I think it is not fair and will not bring you any respect to promote another CMS on this forum. I guess you should reconsider your marketing strategy. Stay and participate as you wish, but try to use the forum appropriately, please.

I have to say that before writing any post I contacted Vizz via PM. I found many security flaws and I've helped as much as possible.

Although 30% of my posts contain the word wordpress, it's not personal but the repository is poor in terms of security. If you want a wordpress

blog can work (not for me) but if you want an online store, real estate site, etc is not the best option.

Drupal and Joomla are the major competitors of wordpress and they also have some modules with security issues, is what happens when you

don´t put a filter module when uploading your repository.

Okay, I have to admit it's personal.

I'll try to not mention other defects and just mention the countless virtues of Processwire.

I can read nowhere someone has crossed a line of respect => and without comparing,

how will you ever know what a cms is worth ? Comparing is the very reason why I ended up here with pw.

There is a reason why wp is in the news because of it's plugins what blad only confirmed by his own findings. 

This forum has by far the best community I have ever experienced - let's make sure that as we grow that we keep it that way.

Totally agree and re-edited my post #8

There is a reason why we choose pw and there is a reason why wp is in the news lately because of it's plugins what blad only confirmed by his own findings. 

I appreciate blad's investigations into the issue and PM'ing @Vizz to alert her of the problem. We should all be informed (and help to inform others) about the potential issues with the systems we use, or maybe considering to use at some point. I just felt that the tone of the conversation had started to cross the line from being helpful, towards the bashing of WP. I know I have been guilty of criticizing certain aspects of all of the big three CMS's in my discussions with clients. I just think those thoughts should be kept out of this forum. 

I think in reality it's a shame this thread exists in the first place - it's not really appropriate for this forum, but maybe I am over-reacting - from my experience here I don't think anyone here would really start a flame war about any other system - these forums just don't have that vibe :)

Some posts about other CMS's are the result of frustration I guess. (I have a few) But we have this remarkable framework called ProcessWire.

We all have to know that we will sparkle even more if we don't bash anything, we don't need it. Not 'bashing' will suit us better.

The reason we're in this forum is because we prefer Processwire. Each Cms has its own forum and community, I came because I loved the system and the community.

Forgive my personal hatred that system (wp), my behavior was not the best.

@adrian: I think you are not over-reacting! After reading #7 my blood pressure and pulse are getting too high for some minutes. (da muss man sich ja fremd-schämen)

@blad: I find it good that you have helped with some fixes for those found security issues via PM.

      Just a few days before christmas we relaunched our own agency website at schwarzdesign.de using ProcessWire! The old Drupal-based site was getting a bit outdated, we wanted to rebuilt it with fewer, more focused content pages, clean & minimalistic design and better performance for mobile visitors. Note that the site copy is only available in German.
      After a couple of successful ProcessWire projects such as Engfer Consulting and Joachim Kobuss, we decided to use it for our own site as well, mostly for it's small footprint and developer-focused API.
      We also have a dedicated ProcessWire page on our new site, check it out here!
      Modules used
      ProFields Automatically Link Page Titles TinyPNG Image Compression Color Tracy Debugger Sitemap Duplicator ALIF - Admin Links In Frontend A focus on content
      We went for a minimalistic approach with a limited set of design elements to highlight our content, which is mostly copy about our services and approach to web design. The two-column layout is built with a single Repeater Matrix section with fields for left and right copy, left and right images and a couple of display options for column width and alignment. Other Repeater Matrix types include a full-width image with some additional links (used on the homepage), teaser sections for current news and projects as well as a list of services.
      We used dedicated page types (templates) for services, projects and news. This allowed us to use those as taxonomies for our reference projects, and create cross-references to those pages in one go. For this purpose, there's also a dedicated CMS template and pages for all Content-Management-Systems we use, allowing us to categorize our projects and news in regards to the CMS used and show appropriate pages in the recommended content sections.
      Performance
      Loading times become ever more important with the rising amount of mobile traffic, both for the bounce rate and for SEO purposes. For client-side performance, we got rid of all external libraries (CSS and JavaScript). All CSS is written in SASS; we use a very stripped down version of Bootstrap 4 that includes only the grid system, the utility classes and a select few of the components. We also avoided the components requiring jQuery, allowing us to get rid of jQuery entirely. The few interactive parts of the site (flyout menus, the theme switch, adding the blur filter for the background image on scroll) are written in simple vanilla JavaScript.
      Server-side, we use the ProcessWire page cache to minimize server response times, as well as Cache-Control headers and GZIP compression to make sure all assets are as lightweight as possible and cached client-side. One problem we had were the large header images requiring transparency. We ended up combining a couple of approaches to minimize image loading times:
      SVG assets where possible (for example, all the service pages (Kompetenzen) use SVG for the header images. Responsive images to serve the smallest possible image for each device. PNG compression using the TinyPNG service and the TinyPNG module. This had possibly the highest impact, sometimes reducing the image size by about 80%! Design highlights
      One of the adornments of the site are the large, variable sized header images. Position and size can be controlled through the backend: We built display settings for size in viewport width or height, vertical and horizontal alignment as well as optional offsets. The header images are fixed to the viewport, so they always stay in the background. The blurred background uses CSS filters, with a fallback to a simple opacity reduction for older browsers.
      As a gimmick, there is a light and a dark theme for the website, the latter being the default. You can switch between themes using the sun icon in the menu. On the technical sides, both themes have their own stylesheets, compiled using the same SASS source files with different variables. Only the active theme's CSS is directly loaded on the site, the other is included as a preloaded asset. The active theme is saved in the session, so it stays active for the duration of the browser session.
      For our reference projects (Referenzen), we replaced the background color with the primary color of the project (each project has a color field for that purpose). We determine the luminance of the primary color programmatically to find if the color has higher contrast to black or white, and use the light or dark theme accordingly.

      When I ran Google Developers PageSpeed Insights to check out my developed website for performance and improvement I found that my images (thumbnails, backgrounds, etc...) can be compress more than what I have so I look for Image Compression Tools and this what I found http://www.creativebloq.com/design/image-compression-tools-1132865
      I hope this helps other too.

      Hallo i just want to show my first website in processwire.. Tell me what you think?

      i have some issues but i am working on..
      thank you!

      I was interested if anyone who's been involved in the web design industry for a while had any pointers or tips to people like me who are at (or near) the beginning of their journey with web design.
      Or if not, just share how you got started, things you're happy you did or regret doing.
      I'd been in business for a number of years and was working for a hotel in France when we needed a new website. I got fed up hanging around waiting and I was sort of already the "go-to" tech guy (I think almost by default ) so I just thought I'd take a look at this website mumbo-jumbo. My brother has also been a web guy for years and he's always tried to get me involved but I just never got the bug but once I started I was hooked. I was always fascinated by starting with a blank page and I think my favourite moment was when I first saw my code turn into actual content on the web!
      That first site I made is still up there despite me having left the hotel a year or so ago and totally blagging my way through building it (Though they should probably change it!). i don't think it holds up too badly all things considered.
      It's only in the last month or so after more or less 15 months of constant "learning" that I feel like I've got a grip of enough stuff to build solid websites but I do often envy those guys who've been coding since they were at school!
      I'm also finding it quite tough to get new work. I feel like I want to be working for small/medium sized companies who need a web presence but aren't necessarily after a huge site, the problem with this area though is people seem reluctant to spend even 400/500 pounds on a site when they see the likes of Wix and others advertising for next to nothing. I guess it's a case of trying to convince them of the support and flexibility they'd be getting with me.
      Anyway, was interested on hearing from some of you guys your stories (if you want to share that is )
