Find attached the first Alpha Version of the Module ProcessSetupPageName with Multilanguage Support. I tested it under various circumstances and it is doing fine with one exception: Until now it doesn't work together with 'Page Name Extended' (since PW 3.0.12) which allows UTF8 Page Names. Module requires PHP >= 5.4.x
Download from here:
EDIT: Removed link, download last version from here: https://github.com/kixe/ProcessSetupPageName/archive/master.zip

Would be nice if you could test it and give a feedback to me. Thanks in advance.

Edited by kixe
Due to some updates, I replaced the download link.

There the error with the new file.

Error: Cannot access self:: when no class scope is active (line 70 of ../site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/site/modules/ProcessSetupPageName-master/ProcessSetupPageName.module)

For use it I just remove the self::$notes and replace by ''.

Which PHP Version do you use? Both Errors you mentioned looking like PHP = 5.3.x Could you make an update of your PHP Version and try again? Thanks.

Great module but there's one thing that prevents me form using it, maybe this could be added in the future:

When adding a page and in the middle of the process you decide not to add a new page (skipping the Publish button and navigate away), then an empty page will be created. I think this coul be solved by adding a "Cancel" button next to the existing buttons ("Publish", "Save and....", "Cancel"). But perhaps there is an easier fix.

Don't get me wrong - I can delete the pages of course but I would use this module to make it easier for clients to add new pages, especially where the page name is actually irrelevant.

As a bonus feature request I would love to see message like these appear only for superusers - these may be too much for a regular client:

"SetupPageName expects value in field 'title' to autogenerate Pagename"

Ryan solved this in pagetable as that pages created but not published are deleted automatically each day by a kind of lazycron. On mobile and no details for that... Just throwing in an idea

When adding a page and in the middle of the process you decide not to add a new page (skipping the Publish button and navigate away), then an empty page will be created. I think this coul be solved by adding a "Cancel" button next to the existing buttons ("Publish", "Save and....", "Cancel"). But perhaps there is an easier fix.

In fact the page is already created in the 'middle of the process' and it has to be created to pull the page name from other page fields. If you don't like this. Create a cronjob like bernhard mentioned. Example:

$wire->addHook('LazyCron::everyDay', function() {
    // trash untitled pages
    $delay = time()-60;
    $untitleds = wire('pages')->find("created<$delay,name^=untitled,include=all");
    foreach ($untitleds as $untitled) $untitled->trash(); // to delete permanently use $untitled->delete() instead
});
Don't get me wrong - I can delete the pages of course but I would use this module to make it easier for clients to add new pages, especially where the page name is actually irrelevant.

In this case you don't need this module. Use built in 'Name Format Children' in parent template settings and create the name frome date. It is also possible in my module to create the name from any autogenerated page property like 'created' or 'id'. Read the note in 'Name Format Children' field if module is installed.

As a bonus feature request I would love to see message like these appear only for superusers - these may be too much for a regular client:

"SetupPageName expects value in field 'title' to autogenerate Pagename"

This message is needed. How could the page editor know from where the values are pulled to generate the pagename? I don't want to change this.

Thanks, I will try a combination of fields then & try lazycron.

This message is needed. How could the page editor know from where the values are pulled to generate the pagename? I don't want to change this.

Sometimes the editors shouldn't care about the page name, for example when pages are created to hold content for content blocks. For example awards pages that won't have its own page at all.

Hi, I was trying this module, and I get this error:

Error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function getDefault() on null in /Users/krlos/Documents/Sitios/processpdf/site/modules/ProcessSetupPageName/ProcessSetupPageName.module:99

I also get this error and found that this is due to the lack of  a core module called "Languages Support". The error is gone after install the module.

I suggest to add "Languages Support" to the dependency of this module.

Hi,

this module throws an error when I create a new page.

Call to a member function getLanguageValue() on a non-object (Zeile 121 in /var/www/_html_default/processwire-playground/site/modules/ProcessSetupPageName/ProcessSetupPageName.module)


My name format for children is "date(Y/m/d) title", LanguageSupport is installed but the title field has the type PageName, not PageNameLanguage.

In this case, $page->title is a plain string, so this seems to work for me:

        // case 2: title default
        else if ($format == 'title') {
            if(is_object($page->title) && strlen($page->title->getLanguageValue($languageID))) {
                $pageName .= '-'.$page->title->getLanguageValue($languageID);
            } else {
                $pageName .= '-'.$page->title;
            }
        }

Further investigation might be necessary: Can $page->title->getLanguageValue(...) be an empty string?

Hi,

it seems the module throws errors, when used together with Version Control. Pages which have version control enabled generate this error message.

I am not very good at php, so I cant investigate this further, but I would like to use this module. ATM I cant run the site without version control.

I fixed the single/ multilanguage issue. Sorry for the delay ...
Please update to 2.0.1 and try out.

How can I display on the backend the pages created with this module as titles instead of names?

For example I'm currently see the pages as: test-30-jan-2017. How can I see them as: Test 30 Jan 2017?

Sorry that was my mistake.

@kixe Are you planning to make the module to update the page name when the fields that used to generate the name have been edited?

@PWaddict Thanks for the input. I made the module configurable with the option you mentioned. Furthermore I did some repairings for some special cases. Seems to work. Please try Version 2.0.2

I just tried it and unfortunately it doesn't work at all. I tried with both checked and unchecked the option just in case that was the problem.

Perhaps there should be some warning about this option in the readme and/or module config page, as it has the potential to inadvertently break links if the Page Path History module is not installed.

I am sorry about that. Did you get any Errors? Exceptions? Please let me know. I tested the module in 2 different environments. It worked there without problems.

@Robin S

Thanks for the hint. I added a note to the config field and the readme.

There are no errors. It's just doesn't update the page name. I'm on localhost with php 7 and ProcessWire 3.0.52.

I missed to add the hook which update pagenames even if language support isn't enabled. I fixed this in Version 2.0.3
If you use the module in single language mode this might have been the cause. Thanks for your help.

Yep that was the problem. Now it's working perfect. Thank you very much.

      Hello!
      I searched a lot to find various solutions to the problem of setting a custom publish date. Which is a must if you do a redesign of a website and need to write import scripts. Since I can't  re-use the database.
      I understand that there is no field to set the dates for created/modified/published manually, but this should be at least possible with the page API.
      So I tried to set the published date via API:
      $page->of(false); $page->published = 1486297829; $page->save(); Which did not work, whenever I ask for $page->published, I get the date back that was first set when publishing the page.
      So I researched a little more and found that the Page class stores the published date in $page->settings['settings']; (see Github)
      I also tried $page->set('published', 1486297829); but with no success.
      Is it possible that this has to be done via SQL? Why? Why can't I use the API? Or do I miss anything?
      Thank you a lot in advance!

      Hi, I think this is my first topic, even though I've been working with PW a few years. But now, I'm trying to restructure my way of coding, cause many templates (like activities for birding societies) are re appearing in multiple different websites. Since this, I've been working on redo this into a module, but as far as I have read I cannot store the templates (related to specific module) in the module's folder. It has to be in the templates folder?

      Hello!

      I'm currently trying to create a navigation menu using list items and I'm having issues pulling children pages properly and I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
      The code below was modified from the default (intermediate) template that outputs child pages of the main page. (Home -> About, SiteMap).

      But one of the children (About page), also has 3 child pages and I'm not sure how to also get those 3 additional child pages to display as well within the same foreach statement. Because of the way the menu is structured I would need to change the output of the HTML for any Child Page with additional Children (it nests underneath in the nav).
      Currently only Home, About and Sitemap appear and I want to also include the child pages of About nested properly within the navigation.
       
       Current code, only accounting for Homepage and it's children. Works great and as expected:
      Home About Sitemap <!-- START SIDEBAR MENU --> <div class="sidebar-menu"> <!-- BEGIN SIDEBAR MENU ITEMS--> <ul class="menu-items"> <?php // top navigation consists of homepage and its visible children foreach($homepage->and($homepage->children) as $item) { echo "<li class=''><a href='$item->url'><span class='title'>$item->title</span>"; // Grab first two letters of page to output for menu icon and set active class if($item->id == $page->rootParent->id) { echo "</a><span class='bg-success icon-thumbnail'>"; echo substr($item->title, 0, 2); echo "</span></li>"; } else { echo "</a><span class='icon-thumbnail'>"; echo substr($item->title, 0, 2); echo "</span></li>"; } } ?> </ul> <div class="clearfix"></div> </div> <!-- END SIDEBAR MENU -->  
      Modified not working markup trying to also nest children of a child:
      Home About Page1 Page2 Page3 SiteMap <!-- START SIDEBAR MENU --> <div class="sidebar-menu"> <!-- BEGIN SIDEBAR MENU ITEMS--> <ul class="menu-items"> <?php // top navigation consists of homepage and its visible children foreach($homepage->and($homepage->children) as $item) { echo "<li class=''><a href='$item->url'><span class='title'>$item->title</span>"; // check if a top navigation item's visible children has child pages // if true, change markup of top navigation item to account for nested children if(($homepage->children)->hasChildren()) { //change menu item to menu item /w sub-items echo "<li class=''><a href='javascript:;'><span class='title'>$item->title</span> <span class='arrow'></span></a><span class='icon-thumbnail'><i class='pg-form'></i></span>"; //loop through the top navigation child's children pages and output them as nested menu item foreach($child->children as $childitem) { echo "<ul class='sub-menu'>"; echo "<li class=''><a href='$childitem->url'>$childitem->title</a>"; echo "</a><span class='icon-thumbnail'>"; echo substr($childitem->title, 0, 2); echo "</span></li></ul></li>"; } } //step back out and continue listing Homepage Children pages if($item->id == $page->rootParent->id) { echo "</a><span class='bg-success icon-thumbnail'>"; echo substr($item->title, 0, 2); echo "</span></li>"; } else { echo "</a><span class='icon-thumbnail'>"; echo substr($item->title, 0, 2); echo "</span></li>"; } } ?> </ul> <div class="clearfix"></div> </div> <!-- END SIDEBAR MENU --> Any insights would be appreciated! I'm also sure the php code itself can be refactored better but still learning for now.

      I enabled language support and now I get "Trying to get property of non-object" for lines like:
      <p><?= $page->text ?></p> The content is still available in the backend. On another page I get text from the frontpage with:
      <?php $somepage = $pages->get(1); ?> ... <p><?= $somepage->text ?></p> This outputs the text although on the frontpage it doesn't. I also do this on the header. On the frontpage I added some fields that are thus "shared" among all pages the content fails with the error for `<?= $page->text ?>` but not for `<?= $pages->get(1)->text ?>`.
      On a third page everything works as expected 
      All three pages have different templates.
      Additionally if the field is wrapped with frontend editing like so:
      <p><edit text><?= $page->text ?></edit></p> The page source will end up like this:
      <p></edit></p> Before having to dig deep into this:
      Any idea what it could be? I var_dumped $page and that gives an object.

      Say I have a field for an unordered list. I need to have such a list twice on the page with different list items.
      Ideally I would create one field that can take html and only allows for <ul> and <li>.
      I can add the field to another template.
      But it seems I can't add that field twice to a template or am I missing something?
