What do you see in your 1022 folder if you move the exit down to after line 317 and then again after 318?

I am assuming there is something in the create_zip function that isn't working on your local install. Maybe it's the ZIPARCHIVE::OVERWRITE?

exit after line 316  /1203/data.json & files.zip

exit after line 317 /1203/data.json & files.zip plus this message: Warning: Illegal string offset 'currentpath' in  :\xampp\htdocs\mysite\site\modules\ProcessPageTreeMigrator\ProcessMigrator.module on line 2100

exit after line 318 /1203/files.zip only no json file plus the same warning mssg as above.

Each time I deleted the files in /1203/ before running the next test.

@tobaco - thanks for the feedback - obviously I need to look further into users/roles migrations. Your exported json is showing that the home page is created by a user named "cms" with no role. Looking at the created_users_id for the home page, this makes sense. I'll try to work on this shortly, along with the rest of the multi-language issues.

@NooseLadder - thanks for that - I have pushed an update which I hope will fix things for you - can you please let me know how it goes.

Hi Adrian,

Thanks for the update but this still does not work. Installed version 0.1.2.

It seems that the json and zip files are being created in the folder but the json is not being added to the zip prior to download.

I commented out line 320

//unlink($this->session->jsonFilename);

The zip file is downloaded without the json file included and the json file remains in the files/folder.

If you want me run any more tests please let me know.

Hi This is the result:

Array ( [currentpath] => C:/xampp/htdocs/mysite/site/assets/files/1062/data.json [newpath] => C:/xampp/htdocs/mysite/site/assets/files/1062/data.json )

I am thinking this might be a Windows vs Unix slash/path issue, but I am not exactly sure where. Does xammp translate forward slashes to back slashes for disk paths - is that why the results you just showed have forward slashes? But then if that was the problem then you'd think it would also affect the template files and images in the zip as well. Maybe it's time I set up an xampp installation on my Windows VM.

Please grab the latest version from Github and try adding the following after line 2120:

error_log('current:'.$file.'|new:'.pathinfo($file, PATHINFO_BASENAME));

and let me know what ends up in your log.

In other news, the latest version should now solve the role issue that @tobaco was having with system created pages and also it should now work properly when attempting to migrate a site with the Home page set as the parent. You can now import Home into Home and it should work properly, allowing full migration of an entire site's page tree - at least something productive came of my efforts today :)

Thanks again. If nothing was logged that suggests that $valid_files is empty, or that create_zip never gets called for the json file, but I can't see how that would be possible.

Would you mind playing around a little more inside that create_zip function and try to figure out the content of $valid_files when trying to add the json file to the zip. Try this after 2108:

if($filetype == 'json') error_log(print_r($valid_files, true));

Also, I see that you edited your post since initially posting. Those errors you did get are strange - seems like you might be trying to export a page with no template. Do you have any ideas on those errors?

Thanks again for your help with this. I hope it doesn't turn out to be some version specific bug in xammp :)

Another significant update this morning which corrects a major omission in critical functionality. Migrator now handles migration of template context field settings.

Now to tackle these new multi-language issues :)

Hi Adrian,

I will play around and report back. The error I deleted I think were due to me not selecting a parent. I'll test again and let you know. Thanks.

BTW, What do you use as a localhost server?

You have to forgive my ignorance here: All this time I have been looking in the wrong error_log file. I have now found the correct one and will go through the lines.

After finding the correct error_log file I reran this line and got the following:

Hi Adrian,

I managed to get this to work by comment out the following on line 2106:

$valid_files = array();
        if(is_array($files)) {
            foreach($files as $file) {
                //if(file_exists($file['currentpath']) || file_exists($file[0]))  /* <-- This line */
$valid_files[] = $file;
            }
        }

I've tried an import into another site and it works  :-)

There may be implications I'm not aware of by doing this?

Edit: Just tried with latest version 0.1.9 and that works too. Line 2106 in version 0.1.6 is now line 2144 in version 0.1.9

I did get this warning after the import to the new site both in versions 0.1.6 and 0.1.9:

Warning: rmdir(C:/xampp/htdocs/mysite/site/assets/files/1022/migratorfiles): Directory not empty in C:\xampp\htdocs\mysite\site\modules\ProcessPageTreeMigrator\ProcessMigrator.module on line 2182

@NooseLadder - thanks so much for your help with this. So if things are working with that file_exists check removed then I think we can assume it's a windows path issue. Weird that the addfile to the zip works, but file_exists fails. I am curious about the Directory not empty warning. Does the migratorfiles directory actually get removed? Again, this seems like a windows path issue because I am using a recursive directory delete function and it works here. I really might need that windows xammp setup to get all these sorted out. But for now, I have removed the file_exists check from the latest committed version as I don't really think it should be necessary as the $files array shouldn't contain any files that don't exist anyway.


Another big enhancement this morning - I think all multi-language features should now be working!

@tobaco - would you please check to see if the latest version fixes all the issues you were having with multi-language page names etc?

Hi Adrian,

I'm happy to help, thanks.

The folder C:/xampp/htdocs/mysite/site/assets/files/1022/migratorfiles is not there. The folder C:/xampp/htdocs/mysite/site/assets/files/1022/ contains some images that I uploaded for a specific page, a thumbnail and the main image. I don't understand why that folder was used to append the migratorfiles folder, maybe because it is the last folder listed in the in the $files array?

Glad to hear the migratorfiles temp folder is being deleted as expected. I am also not sure why 1022 contains some images. The numbered folder that migratorfiles should be saved to is the one associated with the Migrator module page. If you browse your page tree: Admin > Setup > Migrator > edit that should show ?id=xxxx

The id should be the folder where migratorfiles is being created. Do these match, or does 1022 really belong to another page in your site's tree?

I have just finalized support for all Profields field types: Table, PageTable, Multiplier, and Texareas

Please check out the latest version and test away.

I think this completes enough functionality now that I am ready to release this to the modules directory once I get some feedback to verify that multi-language functionality and the Profields additions are working well. 

The official release will probably still be "alpha" for a little while, but hopefully getting it in the modules directory will get some more people testing!

@adrian

sorry for the delay, i just saw your post.

i tried to import the the data, but got the following error right after submitting the form:

Recoverable Fatal Error: Object of class stdClass could not be converted to string (line 38 of /cms/wire/modules/LanguageSupport/FieldtypeTextLanguage.module) 

another thing:

is it possible to point the importer to an already uploaded (e.g. via ftp) file instead of uploading the file via the form.

i think most hosting environments will struggle with uploading large files.

THANKS!

Hi Adrian,

Admin>Setup>Migrator>edit ?id=1062

1022 belongs to another page in the tree and contains the images for that page.

@tobaca,

I just tested the json file you sent me last week and got the same error. If that is the file you are still using, then that is the reason. You need to export again with the new version of Migrator so that the json includes the new multi-language information. Could you please try that and let me know how it goes. If it still doesn't work, please send me your newly exported json file. Also, I have a think about pointing to an already uploaded file.

@NooseLadder - that is definitely strange - it is making me think that: $this->page->filesManager()->path() is somehow not working for you because it doesn't make any sense that this is not pointing to Migrator's admin page id. Anyone else out there running xammp on Windows who feels like testing this ?

Tell me what to do and I'll test. There's 9 pages in this thread and I don't know where to start  :)

@tobaco - that is one serious test case of an import file :)

It's been a mission, but I have narrowed down the problem to the "content_variants" repeater field. If you use the Edit Imported Content option and remove that field from the list, it imports everything else just fine. See image of page tree :)

post-985-0-09070500-1404275990_thumb.png

Migrator normally works just fine with repeater fields, but I see that you have a page field in the repeater field's template, which is something I haven't tested before, especially together with the muit-language element. Not sure exactly what the issue is yet, so I need to investigate more.

For now, I'd appreciate it if you could confirm on your end that the import works if you omit that repeater field during the import, just so I know we are experiencing exactly the same results.

You will need the latest version of Migrator from github as I had to set PHP's max_execution_time because your import was so complex.

Thanks for continuing to help out with this - getting real life tests like this is very valuable.

@kongondo - thanks for offering. You are right, this thread is a behemoth - I will start a new one as soon as I am ready to release, but for now to test:

  1. Grab the module from: https://github.com/adrianbj/ProcessMigrator and install
  2. Make sure debug mode is on
  3. Run the module (Setup > Migrator)
  4. Choose Export
  5. Choose a Parent Page - to keep things simple, maybe something like the default PW's About page
  6. Export
  7. Check that the downloaded zip file contains a data.json file
  8. Let me know if you get any path related errors like @NooseLadder
  9. If you're feeling energetic, comment out line 335: //unlink($zipFilename);
  10. Run again and find out the id of the assets/files folder where the zip is stored. It should match the id of the Migrator Admin > Setup > Migrator page id, but some reason @NooseLadder is seeing it in one of his normal page id folders. Seems like it's a windows/xampp issue.

Thanks so much!

@adrian

thanks for your hard work!

I tried the import omitting the repeater field an got the following response:

Bildschirmfoto%202014-07-02%20um%2009.02

That happened, when i tried to replace the content.

After that I deleted alle the pages I already had in the import system and imported again. I got a similar message and no pages were imported.

After a second try, some pages but not all got imported. It always displayed the »This page may not be deleted« message.

When i tried »Append« instead of »Replace« the import seems to work, I got this screen:

Bildschirmfoto%202014-07-02%20um%2009.22

I hope this helps to narrow down the issue.

Thanks again!

Thanks again for testing. I should have mentioned to try on a clean install. I believe the "This page may not be deleted" message is referring to various system pages. The replace method deletes all children of the Import Parent Page before creating them again. Append or Overwrite doesn't do this. This is not an issue when migrating page trees below home, but if you choose home, then http404 and all the pages under Admin are selected, so obviously I need a check to deal with system pages that are not deleteable to prevent the error.

I'll also look further into the icon_select error - I saw this a few times too - for some reason that page field is not being fully configured during the import, even though the other page fields are importing perfectly.

I am glad to see the 196 pages imported though - that looks like the full set :)

I don't really have any time for this for the next few days, but hopefully I can get these things sorted out after that.

      Wire Mail SMTP

      An extension to the new WireMail base class that uses SMTP-transport

      This module integrates EmailMessage, SMTP and SASL php-libraries from Manuel Lemos into ProcessWire. I use this continously evolved libraries for about 10 years now and there was never a reason or occasion not to do so. I use it nearly every day in my office for automated composing and sending personalized messages with attachments, requests for Disposition Notifications, etc. Also I have used it for sending personalized Bulkmails many times.

      The WireMailSmtp module extends the new email-related WireMail base class introduced in ProcessWire 2.4.1 (while this writing, the dev-branch only).
       
      Here are Ryans announcement.



      Current Version 0.2.6
      get it from the Modules Directory Install and Configure

      Download the module into your site/modules/ directory and install it.

      In the config page you fill in settings for the SMTP server and optionaly the (default) sender, like email address, name and signature.
      You can test the smtp settings directly there. If it says "SUCCESS! SMTP settings appear to work correctly." you are ready to start using it in templates, modules or bootstrap scripts.


      Usage Examples
      The simplest way to use it:
      $numSent = wireMail($to, $from, $subject, $textBody); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody); // or with a default sender emailaddress on config page This will send a plain text message to each recipient.
       
      You may also use the object oriented style:
      $mail = wireMail(); // calling an empty wireMail() returns a wireMail object $mail->to($toEmail, $toName); $mail->from = $yourEmailaddress; // if you don't have set a default sender in config // or if you want to override that $mail->subject($subject); $mail->body($textBody); $numSent = $mail->send(); Or chained, like everywhere in ProcessWire:
      $mail = wireMail(); $numSent = $mail->to($toEmail)->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); Additionaly to the basics there are more options available with WireMailSmtp. The main difference compared to the WireMail BaseClass is the sendSingle option. With it you can set only one To-Recipient but additional CC-Recipients.
      $mail = wireMail(); $mail->sendSingle(true)->to($toEmail, $toName)->cc(array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com')); $numSent = $mail->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); The same as function call with options array:
      $options = array( 'sendSingle' => true, 'cc' => array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com') ); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody, $options); There are methods to your disposal to check if you have the right WireMail-Class and if the SMTP-settings are working:
      $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { // Uups, wrong WireMail-Class: do something to inform the user and quit echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; return; } if(!$mail->testConnection()) { // Connection not working: echo "<p>Couldn't connect to the SMTP server. Please check the {$mail->className} modules config settings!</p>"; return; } Following are a ...


      List of all options and features


      testConnection () - returns true on success, false on failures


      sendSingle ( true | false ) - default is false

      sendBulk ( true | false ) - default is false, Set this to true if you have lots of recipients (50+)


      to ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      cc ($recipients) - only available with mode sendSingle, one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      bcc ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

       
      from = 'person@example.com' - emailaddress, can be set in module config (called Sender Emailaddress) but it can be overwritten here

      fromName = 'Name Surname' - optional, can be set in module config (called Sender Name) but it can be overwritten here


      priority (3) - 1 = Highest | 2 = High | 3 = Normal | 4 = Low | 5 = Lowest

      dispositionNotification () or notification () - request a Disposition Notification


      subject ($subject) - subject of the message

      body ($textBody) - use this one alone to create and send plainText emailmessages

      bodyHTML ($htmlBody) - use this to create a Multipart Alternative Emailmessage (containing a HTML-Part and a Plaintext-Part as fallback)

      addSignature ( true | false ) - the default-behave is selectable in config screen, this can be overridden here
      (only available if a signature is defined in the config screen)

      attachment ($filename, $alternativeBasename = "") - add attachment file, optionally alternative basename


      send () - send the message(s) and return number of successful sent messages


      getResult () - returns a dump (array) with all recipients (to, cc, bcc) and settings you have selected with the message, the message subject and body, and lists of successfull addresses and failed addresses,


      logActivity ($logmessage) - you may log success if you want

      logError ($logmessage) - you may log warnings, too. - Errors are logged automaticaly
       
       
      useSentLog (true | false) - intended for usage with e.g. third party newsletter modules - tells the send() method to make usage of the sentLog-methods - the following three sentLog methods are hookable, e.g. if you don't want log into files you may provide your own storage, or add additional functionality here

      sentLogReset ()  - starts a new LogSession - Best usage would be interactively once when setting up a new Newsletter

      sentLogGet ()  - is called automaticly within the send() method - returns an array containing all previously used emailaddresses

      sentLogAdd ($emailaddress)  - is called automaticly within the send() method

      Your API calls must start with { and must end with }. For use multiple arguments inside functions, separate arguments with ~ char.

      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. This module should be considered alpha until it has gone through some more testing.
      Add Template Enhancements
      Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.

      Features
      Derive template label from name: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. When one or more new templates are added in admin a label is derived automatically from the name. 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

      Hi,
      I've put in a support request (as a followup on an existing one) for this but it's nearly 10pm Ryan's time, so I thought I'd ask on here just in case someone can help...
      Yesterday we purchased ProDrafts, but I couldn't get the key to validate. Every time I hit submit on the module settings screen the key would be removed from the field I entered it in, and then it would complain about the missing value. I put in a support request and Ryan responded last night. It turned out it was because we're behind a proxy/firewall. He gave me a fix to get around that issue - some code to go into admin.php. I put that code in and saved admin.php, but now I can't even get into our admin anymore!
      (Just to clarify, I took the code back out and saved admin.php but that made no difference. It's definitely not the new code causing the error.)
      The errors relate to a lack of permission on the ProDrafts module (see attached screenshot). We do have a key, but evidently the code Ryan gave me to add the key in via admin.php isn't taking effect before the error is thrown...?
      I tried removing the ProDrafts directory from the modules directory, but that hasn't helped.
      Is there a hook I can put in somewhere to tell it not to load ProDrafts at all, or not check the permissions? Or is there some way to manually uninstall it from the file system?
      Thanks!

      I just made a textformatter module that allows you to insert dummy content (lorem ipsum style) in text fields via shortcodes.
      Usage is simple - just type for example [dc3] into a textarea with this textformatter applied (plain textarea or CKEditor) and it will be replaced at runtime by 3 paragraphs of dummy content. It can also be used to populate text fields (for headings etc) using e.g. [dc4w]. This will produce 4 words (rather than paragraphs) at runtime.
      The actual content comes from an included 'dummytext.txt' file containing 50 paragraphs of 'Lorem ipsum' from lipsum.com. The 50 paragraphs is arbitrary - it could be 10 or 100 or anything in between, and the contents of that file can be changed for your own filler text if you wish.
      The slightly clever bit is that for any given page, the same content will be returned for the same tag, but the more paragraphs available in 'dummytext.txt', the less likely it is that two pages will get the same content (very roughly speaking - it's actually based on the page ID) so content selection is determinate rather than random, even though only the tags are saved to the db.
      Update
      Tags now work like this -
      [dc3] - Show 3 paragraphs ([dc:3], [dc3p] & [dc:3p] all do the same). [dc3-6] - Show 3 to 6 paragraphs randomly per page load ([dc:3-6], [dc3-6p] & [dc:3-6p] all do the same). [dc3w] - Show 3 words ([dc:3w] does the same). [dc3-6w] - Show 3 to 6 words randomly per page load ([dc:3-6w] does the same). <End update on tags.>
      If you think it might be useful, you can download it from GitHub and give it a try.
