Since the launch I've been monitoring 404s in Google Analytics and we appear to getting quite a few (around 40 per week). What's odd is that the affected URLs all have jumplinks in places, and when I test them the redirects work perfectly fine. 

I can't see why Analytics would be picking these up but I'm quite concerned- if anyone as any insight it would be greatly appreciated.

This is very much a shot in the dark, but you don't happen to have anything in place that would skip PHP entirely? Jumplinks relies on a hook to the 404 request, so some sort of caching could be causing this.

Additionally I'd make sure that these requests actually land on the correct site. If you have the old site running somewhere, it could be a result of cached DNS entries or something along those lines.

Thanks for your reply Teppo. I passed this on to the project developer, and he has checked/ruled out what you suggested.  Please let me know if you have any other ideas?  We also enabled the Jumplinks 404 monitor and found that it isn't picking up the 404s that Analytics is recording... I can't think why there would be an inconsistency here.

Aside: Is it me, or is this text editor broken? I've been battling to navigate using the arrow keys, it's double posting as adding replies on a the second last page doesn't take me to the last page, and deleting mentions and emojis is not working properly. Tested on FF and Chrome on Mac... Weird.

@coxharrison - Not entirely sure what's going on here. Would have thought it to be a caching issue as well… Second guess is a header problem (incorrect status code for some reason), but that doesn't make sense as the module hooks into the 404 event and throws a 301/302 if a jump is needed. Given that it's been half a month since your last post, is this still happening?

Thanks @Mike Rockett, looks great so far – will test properly later 🙂

The editor has indeed been having some issues lately. Pete has been digging into this, and we're keeping an eye out in case an update is released that would take care of this.

Thank you so much for the module. 

i'm just trying to get it to work and wonder if i missed something. i want to redirect pages from an existing installation (windows server, jumplinks 1.5.53) that have been moved in the tree.

example:

old url:
/en/product/teabag/

new url:
/en/brand/teabag/

(for the new url I chose the page id)

if i now create these jumplinks, i always end up on the home page. isn't that possible?
sorry, if the question has already been answered, i didn't find anything on the fast one.

thx

@entschleunigung To make sure that jumplinks is working, go into the module settings and turn on debug mode. When you hit the old URL, you should see a log from the module, showing what it's doing. Feel free to post that log here so we can take a look :)

thank you very much for your reply. 
I don't think it was apparent from my previous post. in the meantime i read that this version does not supports a multilanguage setup. is that still correct?

thx

Hi @Mike Rockett

We are using this module on few client sites and it works great. There is one issue though: varchar 255 is too small for referrer field, we do get occasional: 

SQLSTATE[22001]: String data, right truncated: 1406 Data too long for column 'referrer' at row 1 (in /site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/site/modules/ProcessJumplinks/ProcessJumplinks.module.php line 532

Any hope to get this fixed? (we will most probably update local databases to text).

Thanks @apeisa

I'll need to add in a schema update to change the column to text.

Really wish I could find the time to continue work on v2 – the minute I find a gap, something comes up. :|

I've pushed up to the master branch but won't release until I have an opportunity to test later this afternoon (SAST). :)

Thanks Mike!

unfortunately we jut found another issue like this:

Data too long for column 'request_uri' at row 1

So there is similar issue at least with request_uri also (not sure about other fields). Any possibility to get this fixed as well?

One more: I'm also seeing this error for the 'user_agent' column.

These columns are sorted in 1.5.56. However, instead of text, I've gone with varchar(512), which should be more than long enough. :)

@teppo - in regards to Jumplinks 2 and composer support: the module utilises several composer packages, which at present are kept in the vendor directory of the module, part of source control. Just to be 100% sure, if I were to drop this from source control, this would force users to install via composer? If so, I'd need to leave it in there, unless you know of another way 🙂

@all - I'm putting some time aside today to continue working on Jumplinks 2 – specifically frontend stuff. I'm cool with sticking to the usage of jQuery for the time being, though I imagine at some point I would move over to something like Svelte. No point in doing it now though, as pretty much all of the functionality I need (excluding bulk actions) has already been implemented.

On the topic of dependencies, I'm feeling inclined to push the minimum PHP version to the one that still has active security support, which at this point is PHP 7.1. In my experience, it's always been best to only support maintained versions of PHP. This also allows me to bump illuminate/database from 5.4 to 5.8 (I imagine there are a bunch of fixes). I don't know what the implications of this are in terms of the various hosting providers people use, but I'd be quite shocked if providers were only supporting unmaintained versions of PHP.

Ooooh... That wouldn't work on about 99% of my client's hosting plans and even my hosting plans are limited in this point.

@wbmnfktr - Hence why I'm needing some more info – not sure if any additional composer support has been added. Would be great if I could trigger an install during module install from the UI. 🙂

Sure... but my composer knowledge is quite limited. All I know is how to install something with it. 😉 
I guess @teppo has more knowledge here and maybe there is a solution or something.

      I am happy to present my new fieldtype FieldtypeImageFromPage. It is made up of 2 modules:
      Fieldtype Image Reference From Another Page is a Fieldtype that stores a reference to a single image from another page. The image can be selected with the associated Inputfield.
      Inputfield Select Image From Page is an Inputfield to select a single image from images on a predefined page and it's children.
      And there also is a helper module that takes care of cleanup tasks.
      This module evolved out of a discussion about my other Module FieldtypeImagePicker.  It caters for use cases where a set of images is being reused multiple times across a site. With this fieldtype these images can be administered through a chosen page. All images uploaded to that page will be available in the inputfield.
      When to use ?
      Let editors choose an image from a set of images that is being used site-wide. Ideal for images that are being re-used across the site.
      Suited for images that are used on multiple pages throughout the site (e.g. icons).
      Other than the native ProcessWire images field, the images here are not stored per page. Only references to images on another page are stored. This has several advantages:
      one central place to organize images when images change, you only have to update them in one place. All references will be updated, too. (Provided the name of the image that has changed stays the same) Features
      Images can be manipulated like native ProcessWire images (resizing, cropping etc.) Image names are fully searchable through the API Accidental image deletion is prevented. When you want to delete an image from one of the pages that hold your site-wide images, the module searches all pages that use that image. If any page contains a reference to the image you are trying to delete, deletion will be prevented. You will get an error message to help you edit those pages and remove references there before you can finally delete the image. How to install and setup
      Download and install this module like any other modules in ProcessWire Create a page in the page tree that will hold your images. This page's template must have an images field Upload some images to the page you created in step 2 Create a new field. As type choose 'Image Reference From Another Page'. Save the field. In 'Details' Tab of the field choose the page you created in step 2 Click Save button Choose the images field name for the field that holds your images (on page template from step 2) Click Save button again Choose whether you want to include child pages of page from step 2 to supply images Add the field to any template You are now ready to use the field View of the inputfield on the page edit screen:

      View of the field settings

      The module can be installed from this github repo. Some more info in the README there, too.
      In my tests it was fairly stable. After receiving your valued feedback, I will eventually add it to the modules directory.
      My ideas for further improvement:
      - add ajax loading of thumbnails
      Happy to hear your feedback!

      Although the PW backend is really intuitive, ever so often my clients need some assistance. Be it they are not so tech savvy or they are not working in the backend often.
      For those cases it is nice to make some help videos available to editors. This is what this module does.
      ProcessHelpVideos Module
      A Process module to display help videos for the ProcessWire CMS. It can be used to make help videos (screencasts) available to content editors.
      This module adds a 'Help Videos" section to the ProcessWire backend. The help videos are accessible through an automatically created page in the Admin page tree. You can add your help videos as pages in the page tree. The module adds a hidden page to the page tree that acts as parent page for the help video pages. All necessary fields and templates will be installed automatically. If there are already a CKEditor field and/or a file field for mp4 files installed in the system, the module will use those. Otherwise it will create the necessary fields. Also the necessary templates for the parent help videos page and it's children are created on module install. The module installs a permission process-helpvideos. Every user role that should have access to the help video section, needs this permission. I use the help video approach on quite a few production sites. It is stable so far and well received by site owners/editors. Up until now I installed required fields, templates and pages manually and then added the module. Now I added all this logic to the install method of the module and it should be ready to share.
      The module and further description on how to use it is available on github: https://github.com/gebeer/ProcessHelpVideos
      If you like to give it a try, I am happy to receive your comments/suggestions here.

      A module created in response to the topic here:
      Page List Select Multiple Quickly
      Modifies PageListSelectMultiple to allow you to select multiple pages without the tree closing every time you select a page.
      The screencast says it all:

      Hello all,
      sharing my new module FieldtypeImagePicker. It provides a configurable input field for choosing any type of image from a predefined folder.
      The need for it came up because a client had a custom SVG icon set and I wanted the editors to be able to choose an icon in the page editor.
      It can also be used to offer a choice of images that are used site-wide without having to upload them to individual pages.
      There are no image manipulation methods like with the native PW image field.
      Module and full description can be found on github https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImagePicker
      Kudos to @Martijn Geerts. I used his module FieldTypeSelectFile as a base to build upon.
      Here's how the input field looks like in the page editor:

      Hope it can be of use to someone.
      If you like to give it a try, I'm happy to hear your comments or suggestions for improvement. Eventually this will go in the module directory soon, too.

      @Sergio asked about the pdf creation process in the showcase thread about my 360° feedback/survey tool and so I went ahead and set my little pdf helper module to public.
