Hi @Mike Rockett - not sure what you think about this idea, but I recently came across a situation where I think it would be helpful if Jumplinks was loaded before the core PagePathHistory module. PPH has set up and automatic redirect on a page, but I hav a more detailed set of rules set up in JL that handles urlsegments using {all}. The problem is that PPH is loading first so the JL rules were being ignored. In this case I decided to manually remove the PPH rules from its DB table, but I think that possible just setting the JL autoload priority setting might also work just fine. Do you think this would make sense in all cases?

@adrian Interesting point indeed, though I recall having changed the priority once or twice in the past for some reason or the other. To me, it makes sense that JL does its thing first as it acts as a user-intervention strategy in that we have to honour the user's wishes. Figuring out what those are, however, is a different story, given the different approaches/modules that are available. I wish this could be configured by the user, in the case conflicts/undesired redirects take place. Jumplinks was actually borne from a plugin I wrote for Bolt CMF, and that plugin was an absolute, undeniable 'before everything else even considers thinking of running' scenario. Before we make a decision here, I think we should get more feedback from other JL users, and perhaps get a list together of any plugin that does route-redirection along with their priorities.

Hi @Mike Rockett first let me repeat what I told you two years ago: Thank you for the Jumplinks module! This is one of the big life savers when it comes to run a real-world website, IMHO. Great job, thanks for maintaining this project!

Thought it was time to update the module from 1.5.50 to 1.5.60.

Same happened to me what was reported here:

I keep getting this error:

Failed to init module: ProcessJumplinks - SQLSTATE[42S21]: Column already exists: 1060 Duplicate column name 'last_hit'

Any ideas how to fix this?


I don't feel very comfortable with patching databases myself, but as it's just a test site I fired up phpMyAdmin.

The proposed workaround:

OK, already fixed it.

I dropped the column from the database

Then I also had to drop the whole process_jumplinks_nf table and now the error is gone

fixed the problem for me. Of course, besides the 404 log was empty, all the "Last hit" information was gone. No problem on a test site, but I don't want to loose this information on the production site. Any ideas on a better way to handle this?

Hi @HerTha - you're very welcome. I really do wish I had more time to work on JL2, which would solve this problem off the bat, but I just can't squeeze it in right now.

With this specific issue, I might land up having to do some trickery in relation to checking if the column exists. Means I need to dig into the information_schema table, which I hate doing. MariaDB supports alter/modify if not exists, but there's obviously no point in me adding something that will crash for most users.

I'm still baffled as to why it's running that schema update in the first place. The only possible thing is that the schema version somehow got 'lost' and so it re-ran it. I'm also a little puzzled as to why the _nf table had to be deleted – that doesn't seem to have anything to do with the issue at hand, which is in relation to the main table.

Before you update production, could you check the module configuration in the database for me? In the moduels table, there will be an entry for ProcessJumplinks – in the data column, there will be a _schemaVersion in the JSON payload – the value for that is what I'm looking for. I'll also need the current version of JL that you're running on the production site. Based on that, I might be able to diagnose. If we're lucky, it might resort to a simple correction of the schemaVersion, in case it didn't successfully update before.

If you could have a quick look at those database details before I carry out the update, that would be great! Thanks a lot for your offer. Maybe it spreads some light on what's going on behind the scenes, on such server/setup. I'll send you a PM then (it'll be 2..3 weeks from now)...

These kinds of redirects become somewhat tricky as requesting index.php is the same as requesting the root of the site. I have worked around this, but it would still be better to do this via an htaccess redirect. Unfortunately, it would be mean two redirects as you are using a mapping collection.

Just after line 129 of your htaccess file (part 13, regarding "www"), add the following:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^\/index\.php [NC]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^id=(\d+) [NC]
RewriteRule ^ /index_php/%1? [R,L]

This will redirect, for example, /index.php?id=321 to /index_php/321.

Now, change your jumplink source to /index_php/{id}.


I have the same problem. I tried this solution but the redirect still does not work. Most of the sources are strings, they don't work and I have 2 numbers, one of them goes to the home-page and one of them returns "TOO MANY REDIRECTS".

This is a part of the mapping collection:

@2hoch11 – please could you share your jumplink source and destination, the htaccess code, and the debug log (debug mode is in the module config)?

@Mike Rockett

Meanwhile the website ist online and I put the redirects directly in the htaccess before the ProcessWire redirects. I hope this causes no security issues. And I mentioned a "TOO MANY REDIRECTS" problem. That was my fault. I forgot to delete a redirect that was in the htaccess… nevermind…

However. Now I tried the same settings on a different Installation, and I have the same result.

I added this to the HTACCESS file (after #13):

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^\/index\.php [NC]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^id=(\d+) [NC]
RewriteRule ^ /index_php/%1? [R,L]

My jumplink:


Mapping with the name "mymap":


If I insert
it redirects to
and throws this error:

404 Page Not Found

No match there...

No matches, sorry. We'll let your 404 error page take over when Debug Mode is turned off.

And this www.domain.de/index.php?id=agb goes to the homepage. No error…

@2hoch11 - Thanks. So the reason for the redirect is to take the page away from index.php so that it isn't seen as the home page. You simply need to change the source to index_php/{id}.

@Mike Rockett Great! Thank you! Of course, because there is the redirect in the HT Access file... and this happens BEFORE jumplinks is redirecting…

But! I still have no redirect when I input
I still get the homepage instead of /agb/

I tried to change the destination to {all|mymap} but still no result… as I can read in the documentation "id" has to be a number… but I have a string…

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^id=(\d+) [NC]

This matches numerical IDs only, right? Could that be the reason for not working with text like 'agb'?

@HerTha Thanks … indeed. I did not notice that…

Now I have to sum this up (for idiots like me):

To redirect from index.php with an id attribute:

/index.php?id=123 -> /impressum/ 
/index.php?id=agb -> /agb/

Put this in your PW root .htaccess, before #14

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^\/index\.php [NC]

# use this if you have digits and/or strings
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^id=(.+) [NC]

# use this i you have only digits [0-9]
# RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^id=(\d+) [NC]

RewriteRule ^ /index_php/%1? [R,L]

As @Mike Rockett pointed out, the jumplink has to be:


// or if you have only digits:

… and the mapping with the name "mymap":


Thats all.

Hey @Mike Rockett!

Just a heads-up that I sent you a little merge request: https://gitlab.com/rockettpw/seo/jumplinks-one/-/merge_requests/3. The gist is that currently the config link is displayed regardless of the user having module-admin permission, so I've added a check for that first. At least in our case typical Jumplinks users don't have access to modules section, which means that this link would only lead to an error message, which is obviously not very nice 🙂

@Mike Rockett

Sorry in advance if this is a bit of a stupid question but if I've set up a Jumplink with the source `chance-to-dance[/]` and on Facebook when the link is shared they prepend it with `.co.uk/chance-to-dance?fbclid=IwAR2b4gQ1Nixtk_w2qVyfxD7WYZIgp8kHtP46qgfTCDKiuozXw4TKxx4CLyw` and now it 404s – how do I set the source to include this sort of thing?

@a-ok Jumplinks 1 doesn't have built in support for automatically dealing with query strings. This is planned for Jumplinks 2, but I simply haven't had the time to complete it. For the time being, I'd be inclined to use the {all} wildcard on the end.

Source: chance-to-dance[/]{all}
Destination: somewhere/{all} or {!all} to skip wildcard cleaning

Hello, I have a problem that I could not solve. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or jumplinks is not working for me.

I need to create a 301 redirect for a page I'm deleting on my site and I want to redirect this page to the home page.

Original page:


My jumplink is:




(using the pagetree to select my homepage)


when I visit the url https://mydomain.com/my-page/ I still can access the page, is not redirecting to my home page.

If I unpub  https://mydomain.com/my-page/  I get a 404 error.

I have been using Jumplink to redirect old pages (pages that don't exist in my processwire website) from legacy cms and they are working fine.

I appreciate any advice

Thank you

Does anyone have a solution for using Jumplinks with urlSegments?

Following my last post, in the end I had to use htaccess redirect because I could never solve the problem.

Super sorry for missing your post! If my-page exists, then Jumplinks will not take effect. It only responds to 404 events within ProcessWire.

Progress update:

Have managed to throw in a few hours on v2. The frontend is being rebuilt in Svelte, because I simply don't use jQuery/Datatables anymore. By not using any of these, I'm free to code this thing the way I want, without having to use a bunch of dependencies that are simply frustrating to build things with. Datatables in particular is hell to work with.

(As an aside, I primarily work with Vue, but Svelte is a little more suited here. No runtime, much smaller bundle.)

Anyways, here's a preview of the redesigned jumplinks list.

  • Newly built styles, consistent in both the default and UIKit themes (should be fine in custom themes too) and scoped to the Svelte container.
  • Have carried over the behaviours, however instead of fetching all jumplinks, they're now fetched as a paginated collection. I'm sure there are a few sites out there with many jumplinks, and fetching them all is just too much.


As mentioned in a previous preview post (such a long time ago!), you'll be able to turn off the colour helpers if you don't like/need them.

Have you had a look at alpinejs - a good option if you are already familiar with Vue

I have indeed – and I dig it from the perspective of rapid development. As I understand it though, it comes with a runtime that contains things that may or may not be used. Sure, the Alpine runtime is small, but the build file I have in Svelte is looking a bit smaller (so far). That aside, enjoying Svelte so far – this is the first time I'm exploring all of its features.

      (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 !)
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      This is a simple module I made so a client could quickly grab a QR Code of the page's url in the admin.
      There's not much to it for now, but if need be you can output anything using a hook:
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) You can also output the QR code on your front-end by calling the field:
      echo $page->qr_code_field; The module uses the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase. When looking for a way to generate a QR Code in PW I came across @ryan's integration in his TFA module. I'm not very familiar with fieldtype/inputfield module development so I blindly followed @bernhard (great) tutorial and his BaseFieldtypeRuntime. At some point I'll take a deeper look to make a module on my own.
      Some ideas for improvements :
      add the ability to choose what to ouput : page's url / editUrl / file(s) / image(s) / ... allow to output multiple QR codes ?
    • By Chris Bennett
      Inspired by @bernhard's excellent work on the new customisable LESS CSS getting rolled into the core soon, I thought I would offer up the module for beta testing, if it is of interest to anyone.

      It takes a different approach to admin styling, basically using the Cascade part of CSS to over-ride default UiKit values.
      Values are stored in ModuleConfig Module creates a separate AdminThemeTweaker Folder at root, so it can link to AdminThemeTweaker.php as CSS AdminThemeTweaker.php reads the module values, constructs the CSS variables then includes the CSS framework Can be switched on and off with a click. Uninstall removes everything, thanks to bernhard's wonderful remove dir & contents function.
      It won't touch your core. It won't care if stuff is upgraded. You won't need to compile anything and you don't need to touch CSS unless you want to.

      It won't do much at all apart from read some values from your module config, work out the right CSS variables to use (auto contrast based on selected backgrounds) and throw it on your screen.
      You can configure a lot of stuff, leave it as it comes (dark and curvy), change two main colors (background and content background) or delve deep to configure custom margins, height of mastheads, and all manner of silly stuff I never use.

      Have been developing it for somewhere around 2 years now. It has been (and will continue to be) constantly tweaked over that time, as I click on something and find something else to do.
      That said, it is pretty solid and has been in constant use as my sole Admin styling option for all of those 2 years.

      If nothing else, it would be great if it can provide any assistance to @bernhard or other contributor's who may be looking to solve some of the quirkier UiKit behavior.
      Has (in my opinion) more robust and predictable handling of hidden Inputfields, data-colwidths and showIf wrappers.
      I am very keen to help out with that stuff in any way I can, though LESS (and any css frameworks/tools basically) are not my go.
      I love CSS variables and banging-rocks-together, no-dependency CSS you can write with notepad.

      I see old posts saying that repeaters are not the way to go in Custom Process Modules. If that is the case, when using forms (as I am trying to do) how would one tackle things like repeat contact fields where there can be multiple requirements for contact details with different parameters? (Like point of contact, director, etc) or even telephone numbers that have different uses?
      Just for background I am creating a process module that allows me to create types of financial applications in the admin area (no need to publish any of this, pure admin) that require a lot of personal or company information.
      Maybe I am thinking about this incorrectly?

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no Javascript or image required.
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode.

      Detailed records
      View mode "Detailed records" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records.

      Cached visitor records
      View modes other than "Detailed records" are cached visitor counts which will be collected on a daily basis from the detailed records. This procedure ensures a faster display even with a large number of data records. Another advantage is that the detailed records can be deleted while the cache remains. The cache can be updated manually or automatically in a specified time period. Multiple visits from the same IP address on the same day are counted as a single visitor.

      Upgrade from older versions
      Cached visitor counts is new in version 1.0.8. If you just upgraded from an older version you might expire a delay or even an error 500 if you display cached visitor counts. The reason for this is that the cache has to be created from the records. This can take longer if your database contains many records. Sometimes it might hit the maximally execution time. Don't worry about that and keep reloading the page until the cache is completely created.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).

      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
