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
Checked Wed, 29 Apr 2020 09:03:04 +0200
Request: http://www.domain.de/index_php/123

Scanning for jumplinks...

[Checking jumplink #1]
- Original Source Path:       index.php?id={id}

- Compiled Source Path:       index.php\?id=(\d+)

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.

Great to hear it works! Thanks for providing a summary to help others!

This reminds me to #1 support rule:


Your problem can be fixed easily! We just need to find the cause, first...

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

Thanks for the help 🙂

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/
      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.

      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.
      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.
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($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.
      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.
