we do want to keep using the Matrix Repeaters as it really improves the content editing experience for our content team.

I know lots of us enjoy using them and I think it would be a worthwhile addition to Migrator. I bet it would be much quicker to extend Migrator than to look for other options 🙂

Maybe at some point in the future I'll find some time to look at adding it. It supports all the other ProFields, so it makes sense to include it as well.

Yes, agreed.  Thanks for the update.

Hi,

I am trying to import to processwire a wordpress site with multi language. I have installed Processmigrator and MigratorWordpress(also in processwire multi laguage support is installed and fields have been change to support multi language). I have exported content(posts) from wordpress and successfully migrated to processwire. Currently both language posts are showing up as different pages.

Can someone point me to right direction is there a way to migrate these posts into one or when i start importing from wordpress what should i do to have them imported in multilanguage?

 

Thanks in advance,

Hi @fisnik - I am glad to hear the import when reasonable well. I also just used it a few weeks ago - it's strange to me that it doesn't seem to see much usage.

Sorry about the ML issues. I have never seen the xml export of a ML wordpress site so I don't know the format, but it sounds like they are separate entries. I am sure this is doable but it will either require some modifications to MigratorWordpress to combine ML posts by ID before generating the JSON for the pages to be imported.

Alternatively, you could probably write an API script to match the posts that are separate pages and pull the content to the default language version page, save that, and then delete the other language version. It depends on whether you can match the two pages - the old WP post ID would be ideal but MigratorWordpress doesn't import that is so you'd also need to handle that I think.

Should definitely be doable, but I am sorry I don't have time to help at the moment, but happy to answer questions if you get stuck along the way.

@adrian Thanks a lot for info. I will try to do something and if it works i will share the info. Regarding usage usually myself when there is not too much content i copy it directly, i think this is the case for others too. But in cases like this one that i have now, we need modules like this i have to move 1000+ posts.

I have to say that this module is life saver and very easy/simple to use, it does the job perfectly.

Hi @adrian i hope you are doing well. I have managed to migrate multi language posts with a help from a friend.
What i just found out is that this module is not importing "featured image" from wordpress, it is importing only images that are embed on body. Is this right or did i miss something? Is there an easy way to fix this since it is very important?

FYI: wordpress exporter by default it does not extrcat that image in .xml file, i did use this plugin to do that.

Hi @fisnik - I am sorry I don't have time to look into this, but if you dig into the MigratorWordpress code that parses the xml you should be able to grab the feature image (if that plugin is adding it to the xml). 

Looking at your other post on the CMSCritic thread, it looks like you are also considering the approach used there - maybe that's a better option for you?

@adrian this module is really useful! But I can‘t get the zip export/import working. Importing via the other options works great.
Iam able to export a zip file. But when I try to import and upload that file into another PW install it says:

Fatal error: Uncaught PDOException: You cannot serialize or unserialize PDO instances in [no active file]:0 Stack trace: #0 [internal function]: PDO->__sleep() #1 {main} thrown in [no active file] on line 0

I tried this on my local machine (Laravel Valet on an old Apple iMac, latest Chrome Browser) with the latest PW version (3.0.184).  
Also when I try to unzip the achive manually, I get a file called files.zip.cpgz, not sure if this is expected. Any clue what's wrong here?

EDIT: It seems to work fine with files inside the templates folder. I had templates under templates/blocks/ and it was not working. So I guess my question would be, if it is possible to allow templates from subfolders as well? Iam currently working an a pagebuilder module and looking into Migrator to update and import the pagebuilder template files. These files live under templates/blocks/ (my pagebuilder creates pages from these template files).

@jploch - I just tested a full zip export and import and it worked without any issues with the zip. I did just commit some PHP8 fixes, along with properly excluding RepeaterMatrix fields (I never added support for those), so grab the latest commit.

That "zip.cpgz" is weird though - I wonder if there is an issue with Valet and the PHP zip library it includes?

I wonder if you can convert that to a regular zip (https://www.lifewire.com/cpgz-file-2620362) and try importing that?

Thx for looking into this! Not sure if you saw my last edit. The zip export/import works for me with files that are directly in the templates directory, however Iam working on a pagebuilder based on page table that creates pages based on templates in the subfolder "templates/blocks" (See my EDIT above for more information). Would it be possible to support subfolders as well? I was trying to include those files with the "Helper Files" option, but the zip seems to fail if the module can not find the tempate files in the templates root folder.

After some more tests with PageTable, I found out that migrator is not exporting/importing pages under admin. In my use case I have PageTable configured to save all item/pages in a container page under admin. For example admin–>pt-items. However with this setup migrator only exports the main page where the PageTable lives without the items. 

Placing the PageTable items under admin is a common thing, if you do not want editors to mess with them and keep your page tree clean. I think people also use this approach with PageTableExtended. So it would be nice if migrator would export PageTable items that live under admin or a diffrent parent than the containing page. Since PageTable has a field that saves the IDs of the item pages, that could be used to identify the items.

I understand if this is out of scope for migrator. If so I might look into building my own solution.

@jploch - it's definitely not out of scope for Migrator and it would be great to support it. There are a few places in the code where I have id!=2, has_parent!=2 - it's possible that removing those might take care of things. Can I leave it to you to test?

Thanks Adrian! I try to remove those checks and do some testing. Will report back soon.

      (once again I was surprised to see a work of mine pop up in the newsletter, this time without even listing the module on PW modules website 😅. Thx @teppo !)
      FieldtypeQRCode
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      A simple fieldtype generating a QR Code from the public URL of the page, and more.
      Using the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase.

      Options
      In the field’s Details tab you can change between .gif or .svg formats. If you select .svg you will have the option to directly output the markup instead of a base64 image. SVG is the default.
      You can also change what is used to generate the QR code and even have several sources. The accepted sources (separated by a comma) are: httpUrl, editUrl, or the name of any text/URL/file/image field.
      If LanguageSupport is installed the compatible sources (httpUrl, text field, ...) will return as many QR codes as there are languages. Note however that when outputting on the front-end, only the languages visible to the user will be generated.
      Formatting
      Unformatted value
      When using $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field") it returns an array with the following structure:
      [ [ "label" => string, // label used in the admin "qr" => string, // the qrcode image "source" => string, // the source, as defined in the configuration "text" => string // and the text used to generate the qrcode ], ... ] Formatted value
      The formatted value is an <img>/<svg> (or several right next to each other). There is no other markup.
      Should you need the same markup as in the admin you could use:
      $field = $fields->get("qrcode_field"); $field->type->markupValue($page, $field, $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field")); But it’s a bit cumbersome, plus you need to import the FieldtypeQRCode's css/js. Best is to make your own markup using the unformatted value.
      Static QR code generator
      You can call FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCode to generate any QR code you want. Its arguments are:
      string $text bool $svg Generate the QR code as svg instead of gif ? (default=true) bool $markup If svg, output its markup instead of a base64 ? (default=false) Hooks
      Please have a look at the source code for more details about the hookable functions.
      Examples
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $page = $event->arguments("page"); $event->return = $page->title; // or could be: $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCodes", function($event) { $qrcodes = $event->return; // keep everything except the QR codes generated from editUrl foreach($qrcodes as $key => &$qrcode) { if($qrcode["source"] === "editUrl") { unset($qrcodes[$key]); } } unset($qrcode); $event->return = $qrcodes; })

      AppApiFile adds the /file endpoint to the AppApi routes definition. Makes it possible to query files via the api. 
      This module relies on the base module AppApi, which must be installed before AppApiFile can do its work.
      Features
      You can access all files that are uploaded at any ProcessWire page. Call api/file/route/in/pagetree?file=test.jpg to access a page via its route in the page tree. Alternatively you can call api/file/4242?file=test.jpg (e.g.,) to access a page by its id. The module will make sure that the page is accessible by the active user.
      The GET-param "file" defines the basename of the file which you want to get.
      The following GET-params (optional) can be used to manipulate an image:
      width height maxwidth maxheight cropX cropY Use GET-Param format=base64 to receive the file in base64 format.

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.
