i cannot change the length of the seo_title field. I changed the field max length to 100 but it is still 60 at the input field. i tried to remove the counter to check, does not work. Tried to change the title and description of the field, this works. I'm confused.

Check out my fork linked to above - I think this is one of the many things I fixed. If it's still an issue, feel free to submit a PR to my fork.

First of all, this module is great!

Unfortunately I'm having some issues. Yesterday most of the SEO data was filled in for the website. We're running a multi-lingual website, so I've changed the fieldtypes and everything worked as expected except for the homepage. For example: when I am searching the company name on google (NL), the website shows up with the link to the dutch homepage which is alright, but the seo description hasn't changed while the field isn't empty in the SEO tab on the Homepage. I can see that the meta data is in the page but google doesn't use it.

 Is this a known issue and can it be solved or is it something different? 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Nico, great module.

Is there a way to use the google tag manager code instead the universal analytics code?

Thanks,

Jose G.

I'm away next week, so don't expect any quick responses to this question, but I am curious if anyone is using my fork (don't forget to go to the other non-master branch)?

If you are, I'd love to hear your feedback and curious whether you think I should try to contact Nico and see if I can either take over this project, or whether I should make it a new module?

There are lots of new features and in my mind lots of pretty critical bug/functionality fixes.

Any thoughts?

I could give it a try next week.

Never used this or the version from Nico so we will see.

Anything special I should look for?

Hi @adrian

I'm not using your fork actively - because I wasn't previously aware of it. I do know people who use Nico's original module - but having had a quick look at the changes in your module I'll be switching over to using it going forward. If Nico is not currently accepting pull requests, (I know I go through phases like that with my modules) then perhaps starting an alternative module from your fork would be the way to go.

Hi @netcarver - thanks for your thoughts.

Nico has just given me push permissions to the repo for this module so I could now start maintaining this module moving forward.

However, I honestly don't really want another high profile module on my list of things to support at the moment, so if I do take this on, I will be looking for the community to help with PRs moving forward. Regarding your suggestion to me via PM about a community Github organization - I still think this might be a good idea, but I am also ok with being the gatekeeper for the module, just not wanting to take on being the support person - does that make sense?

The other issue is that my fork has several breaking changes that prevent easy upgrading from the current master version that is in the modules directory, so without some manual DB changes, it should only be used for new installs.

Anyone else have any thoughts on how best to proceed to ensure no-one breaks there site when upgrading to my new version? Maybe I just need to add an upgrade() method that prevents the module from updating old installs?

I am yet to check out this module so I am for sure not the best person to answer this questions, however I think if you just write a short manual migration guide and prevent accidental upgrading then it should be enough for us developers.

I think your module fork should be on its own - just to minimize the risk to break a site.

I don't know if it's possible to check if Nicos version is installed and therefore your version can't get installed. Or similar.

If an upgrade() method is easy to do I'll be fine with it, too. 🙂 

 

Regarding community help... count me in as tester (at least as this). As we talk about testing, where is the best place to report issues? Github? Here?

Thanks for your thoughts @wbmnfktr - not sure what I am going to do with it just yet, but if you feel like testing that branch in my fork, I think it's probably best to report issues on Github.

I'd simply call it a new version with a different fork . Put a notice on the current version that a new version is available.

Perhaps a user like me can have V1 installed and then simply install separately install V2, test and then remove V1.

I’d love to see, as an option, a user-supplied character inserted between title and sitename. For instance, I usually use the pipe (|) character or sometimes a hyphen. And this character would only obviously be inserted if both title and sitename are used. If sitename isn't supplied, then the pipe or whatever gets stripped.

Was this solved? Im having the same issue. Everything looks fine but the home page SEO won't update. Even if I post link through Facebook. All othes pages and suppages work fine. Looking through source all is there and looks fine. Any ideas?

Thank you

      MediaLibrary
      Update: MediaLibrary can now be found in the official module list.
      Out of necessity, I've started to implement a simple media library module.
      The basic mechanism is that it adds a MediaLibrary template with file and image fields. Pages of this type can be added anywhere in the page tree.
      The link and image pickers in CKEditor are extended to allow quick selection of library pages from dropdowns. In the link picker this happens in the MediaLibrary tab, where you can also see a preview of the selected image. In the image picker, simply select a library from the dropdown at the top, everything else is handled by standard functionality.
      I've put the code onto github. This module is compatible with ProcessWire 3.
      Steps to usage:
      Download the module's zip from github (switch to the pw3 branche beforehand if you want to test on PW 3.x) and unpack it into site/modules Click "Modules" -> "Refresh" in the admin Click "Install" for MediaLibrary For testing, create a page with the MediaLibrary template under home (give it an expressive title like 'Global Media') and add some images and files Edit a differnt page with a CKEditor field and add a link and an image to see the MediaLibrary features in action (see the screencap for details) Optionally, go into the module settings for MediaLibrary Note: this module is far from being as elaborate as Kongondo's Media Manager (and doesn't plan to be). If you need a feature-rich solution for integrated media management, give it a look.
      Feel free to change the settings for MediaFiles and MediaImages fields, just keep the type as multiple.
      There are some not-so-pretty hacks for creating and inserting the correct markup, which could probably be changed to use standard input fields, though I'm a bit at a loss right now how to get it to work. I've also still got to take a look at error handling before I can call it fit for production. All feedback and pointers are appreciated (that's also why I post this in the development section).

      Edit 09.03.2016 / version 0.0.4: there's now also a "Media" admin page with a shortcut to quickly add a new library.

      Edit 01.05.2016:
      Version 0.0.8:
      - The module now supports nested media libraries (all descendants of eligible media libraries are also selectable in link/image picker).
      - There's a MediaLibrary::getPageMediaLibraries method you can hook after to modify the array of available libraries.
      - You can switch between (default) select dropdowns or radio boxes in the module configuration of MediaLIbrary to choose libraries.
      Edit 10.10.2018:
      Version 0.1.3:
      - Dropped compatibility for ProcessWire legacy versions by adding namespaces
      - Allow deletion of libraries from the Media overview admin page
      - Added an option to hide media libraries from the page tree (optionally also for superusers)

      This module corrects a few things that I find awkward about the "Add New Template" workflow in the PW admin. I opened a wishlist topic a while back because it would good to resolve some of these things in the core, but this module is a stopgap for now.
      Originally I was going to share these as a few standalone hooks, but decided to bundle them together in a configurable module instead.
      Add Template Enhancements
      A module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF. Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.

      Features
      Derive label from name when new template added: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. The label can be added automatically when templates are added in admin, in admin/API, or not at all. There are options for underscore/hyphen replacement and capitalisation of the label. Edit template after add: when adding only a single template, the template is automatically opened for editing after it is added. Copy field contexts when cloning: this copies the field contexts (a.k.a. overrides such as column width, label and description) from the source template to the new template when using the "Duplicate/clone this template?" feature on the Advanced tab. Copy field contexts when duplicating fields: this copies the field contexts if you select the "Duplicate fields used by another template" option when adding a new template. Usage
      Install the Add Template Enhancements module.
      Configure the module settings according to what suits you.

      As I mentioned in this issue, I've create a new textformatter for ParsedownExtraPlugin, which adds some oomph to your markdown.
      Repo: Parsedown Extra Plugin
      Unlike the built-in textformatter for Parsedown and Parsedown Extra, this should be used when you want to use Extra with additional configuration/customisation.
      Some examples:
      ### Test {.heading} - A [external link](https://google.com/){.google} with `google` as a class that opens in a new tab if the config property is set. - [Another link](/page){target=_blank} that opens in a new tab even though it isn't external. ```html .html <p>Test</p> ``` There's some config options available to you, such as setting attributes on all/external images and links, setting table and table-cell alignment classes, adjusting footnote classes and IDs, adding <code> attributes to their parent <pre> elements, and changing the <code> class if your syntax highlighter does not use language-*.
      I was thinking about adding the ability to make links open in a new tab by appending a plus to the link syntax, but only external links should be opening in a new tab anyway. Further, this would add extra, unnecessary processing time.
      Please let me know if you bump into any problems. ☺️

      TextformatterTypographer (0.4.0 Beta)
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      Learn more on my blog
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.
      Please do test it out and let me know what you think.
      Also note that I have indicated support for PW 2.8, but I haven't tested there as yet. This was built on PW 3.0.42/62.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.50
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy!
