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.

Yes exactly the problem... my previews version of php 5.3 and now with 5.5 all work fine.

Thank you

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.

As I said use built in options in this case. Read more here: https://processwire.com/api/modules/process-template/

To create contentblocks you can also use Repeaters (single template). Or better ProFields RepeaterMatrix (multiple templates). Repeaters are stored as pages too but very hidden and you don't need to care about naming.

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

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.

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.

@kixe I'm using a multi-language datetime field on the name format for children and it doesn't work properly. I'm using this format: %b %d, %Y and it can't update the page name with the format %b. It seems that it can only update the numeric formats.

Instead of getting this page name:
jan-22-2018

I'm getting this:
b-22-2018

Can you please fix it?

The module uses php function date() and NOT strftime(). To get what you expect use the following format string: 'date(M-d-Y)'.

      Hi,
      Yesterday I found out about the relatively new markup regions functionality and I love it. The ease of use and simplicity is just what I think is typically ProcessWire and is why Im still happy I chose for PW four years ago when changing CMS/CMF. So thanks Ryan for your vision and all you put into it.
      That said, Im running into an issue I'm not sure what to think of it.
       
      I have enabled markup regions in config.php and it does what I suppose it should: it replaced and all. Very neatly. 
      The only thing I discovered is that while Im debugging some issues and I use var_dump to echo some stuff, it does that two times in a row. And this only happens when useMarkupRegions is enabled.
      I dont get this, does it mean the template file gets called twice (and thus the script is run twice?) or is it only displayed twice, where the first time most output is erased and /or replaced by the substituted output?
      I don't really get whats going on there. Is this behavior normal when using markup regions?
      Thanks!

      This is a new module, hope to release soon, which allows extended field descriptions, in currently 2 ways.
      The main feature of the module is that you can have a short description and then a 'more...' link which drops down a longer block of text.
      This is achieved by separating the intro/visible text and the rest with 5 dashes.

      Example setup:

      the 2nd way is if you are using AdminThemeUiKit, you can show extended field instructions in a panel. The content of the panel is edited on a regular PW page. This use case would probably not be that common, but if you had a field that required some extended instructions for how to use, this could be useful; Also, since this allows you to target information and instructions down at the field level, it could reduce the amount of documentation needed on a global level, since it is a lot more context targeted.

      Part 1 of a 2 part Module & Service Reveal.
      I'm currently working on a new module: ModuleReleaseNotes that was inspired by the work I originally did on making Ryan's ProcessWireUpgrades module "release" aware. In the end, I decided to ditch the approach I was originally taking and instead work on a module that hooked in to the UpgradeConfirmation dialog and the module edit page.
      Aims
      My aims for this module are as follows...
      Make discovery of a module's changes prior to an upgrade a trivial task. Make breaking changes very obvious. Make reading of a module's support documentation post-install a trivial task. Make module authors start to think about how they can improve the change discovery process for their modules. Make sure the display of information from the module support files/commit messages doesn't introduce a vulnerability. Looking at these in turn...
      Making discovery of a module's changes prior to upgrade a trivial task.
      This is done by adding a "What's changed section" to the upgrade confirmation dialog.  This section takes a best-effort approach to showing what's changed between the installed version and the updated version that's available via the module repository.
      At present, it is only able to talk to github-hosted repositories in order to ask them for the release notes, the changelog file (if present) and a list of commits between the git tag that matches the installed version and the tag matching the latest version.
      It will display the Release Notes (if the author is using the feature), else it will display the commits between the tags (if tagging is used by the module author) else it will show the changelog file (if present) else it will show the latest N commits on the master branch (N, of course, being configurable to your liking.)
      An example of the Github Release Notes pulled in for you, taken from Mike Rockett's TextformatterTypographer Module...

      An example of a tag-to-tag commit list from the same module...

      An example of a changelog - formatted to show just the changes (formatting styles will change)...

      Finally, an example of a fallback list of commits - sorry Adrian ...

       
      Making breaking changes obvious.
      This is currently done by searching for a set of configurable search strings. Later versions may be able to support breaking change detection via use of Semantic Versioning - but this may require some way of signalling the use of this versioning standard on a module-by-module basis.
      For now, then, you can customise the default set of change markers. Here I have added my own alias to the list of breaking change markers and the changes section of the changelog is styled accordingly (these will be improved)...

       
      Make reading of a module's support documentation, post-install, a trivial task.
      This is done by making some of the support files (like the README, CHANGELOG and LICENSE files) readable from the module's information/settings screen. There is an option to control the initial open/closed state of this section...

      Here is Tracy's README file from within the module settings page... 

       
      Make module authors start to think about how they can improve the change discovery process for their modules.
      There are notes in each of the sections displayed on the upgrade confirmation page that help authors use each of the features...

       
      Make sure display of external information doesn't introduce a vulnerability.
      This is an ongoing concern, and is the thing that is most likely to delay or prevent this module's release. Currently, output is formatted either via Markdown + HTML Purifier (if it was originally a Markdown file) or via htmlspecialchars() if it has come from a plaintext file.
       
      Ongoing...
      For now, I've concentrated on integration with GitHub, as most people use that platform to host their code. I know a few people are hosting their repositories with BitBucket (PWFoo comes to mind) and some with GitLab (Mike Rockett?) and I would eventually like to have adaptor implementations for these providers (and perhaps GitKraken) - but for now, GitHub rules and the other hosts are unsupported.
      I hope to have this ready for general release within the next week.

      Hej,
      A module which helps including Photoswipe and brings some modules for rendering gallery markup. Feedback highly appreciated

      Modules directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/markup-processwire-photoswipe
      .zip download: https://github.com/blynx/MarkupProcesswirePhotoswipe/archive/master.zip
      You can add a photoswipe enabled thumbnail gallery / lightbox to your site like this. Just pass an image field to the renderGallery method:
      <?php $pwpswp = $modules->get('Pwpswp'); echo $pwpswp->renderGallery($page->nicePictures); Options are provided like so:
      <?php $galleryOptions = [ 'imageResizerOptions' => [ 'size' => '500x500' 'quality' => 70, 'upscaling' => false, 'cropping' => false ], 'loresResizerOptions' => [ 'size' => '500x500' 'quality' => 20, 'upscaling' => false, 'cropping' => false ], 'pswpOptions' => (object) [ 'shareEl' => false, 'indexIndicatorSep' => ' von ', 'closeOnScroll' => false ] ]; echo $pswp->renderGallery($page->images, $galleryOptions); More info about all that is in the readme: https://github.com/blynx/MarkupProcesswirePhotoswipe
      What do you think? Any ideas, bugs, critique, requests?
      cheers

      Tasker is a module to handle and execute long-running jobs in Processwire. It provides a simple API  to create tasks (stored as PW pages), to set and query their state (Active, Waiting, Suspended etc.), and to execute them via Cron, LazyCron or HTTP calls.
      Creating a task
      $task = wire('modules')->Tasker->createTask($class, $method, $page, 'Task title', $arguments); where $class and $method specify the function that performs the job, $page is the task's parent page and $arguments provide optional configuration for the task.
      Executing a task
      You need to activate a task first
      wire('modules')->Tasker->activateTask($task); then Tasker will automatically execute it using one of its schedulers: Unix cron, LazyCron or TaskerAdmin's REST API + JS client.
      Getting the job done
      Your method that performs the task looks like
      public function longTask($page, &$taskData, $params) { ... } where $taskData is a persistent storage and $params are run-time options for the task.
      Monitoring progress, management
      The TaskerAdmin module provides a Javascript-based front-end to list tasks, to change their state and to monitor their progress (using a JQuery progressbar and a debug log area). It also allows the on-line execution of tasks using periodic HTTP calls performed by Javascript.

       
      Monitoring task progress (and log messages if debug mode is active)

       
      Task data and log

      Detailed info (setup, task dependencies, time limits, REST API etc.) and examples can be found on GitHub.
      This is my first public PW module. I'm sure it needs improvement
