Progress Update:

I'd like to drop debug mode in favor of a testing tab that I'm quite sure has been brought up before. The idea is to not have to throw your entire site in to JL debug mode just to test one thing in production. I've added this tab now, seems to work well.

Hi @Mike Rockett - just had a: PDOException: SQLSTATE[22001]: String data, right truncated: 1406 Data too long for column 'referrer' at row 1 #22001 in /var/www/html/site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/site/modules/ProcessJumplinks/ProcessJumplinks.module.php:534

because someone was trying to hack in with this link:


I'm not sure the best approach to preventing this exception - not sure if you should change the field type for the referrer column to support larger entries, or if you should just truncate the referrer if it's longer than allowed.

Collecting super long referrer values seems pointless (they're likely spam anyway), so truncating seems like a good approach. And the same applies to UA string as well 🙂


Edit: just checked a few log files, and I've got similar errors there... and some of these:

Exception: SQLSTATE[22001]: String data, right truncated: 1406 Data too long for column 'user_agent' at row 1 (in /site/modules/ProcessJumplinks/ProcessJumplinks.module.php line 534)

  • If I use the 404 monitor to fix a link the link should be removed from the 404 monitor so I do not fix it twice

@Mike Rockett has this been addressed yet? I have a customer complaining about this. Would be really nice if those 404 entries got removed. Any plans on implementing this? And thousand thanks for this great module!

@gebeer – Thanks 🙂 This hasn't been addressed in v1, as the plan was to carry the behaviour into v2 (sorry it's taken so long…) by way of the separate module. I picked up the project again recently and was giving it some thought. I might just include the 404 logger in JL v2, but am still 50/50 on it.

@teppo @adrian – You know, I should have truncated that alongside truncation of the request_uri. Going to see if I can squeeze this in over the weekend while I work on v2’s frontend.

Thanks for clarifying. Which hook would you use to trigger deletion of logger entries, ___executeEntity or ___executeCommit?

If you are using v1 of this module and you want to auto-remove entries from the 404 monitor when you create a jumplink from an entry there, you can use this simple hook in site/templates/admin.php

$this->addHookBefore('ProcessJumplinks::executeCommit', function(Hookevent $event){
    $input = $this->input->post;
    $sourcePath = $input->sourcePath;

    if($sourcePath) {
        $statement = "DELETE FROM process_jumplinks_nf WHERE request_uri = :sourcePath";
        try {
                'sourcePath' => $sourcePath
            $this->message("Eintrag '$sourcePath' wurde aus 404 Monitor Liste entfernt");
        } catch (\Throwable $th) {
            $this->error("Fehler beim Entfernen des Eintrags '$sourcePath' aus der 404- Monitor Liste: " . $th->getMessage());

and adapt the messages to your liking :-)

@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

Hey @Mike Rockett, and sorry to bother you with this again, but just wanted to run something by you.

I've tried the solution above, but at least in my case it doesn't seem to be quite that simple. For some background, in this case the source path is "tilaukset" (orders in Finnish), and it should always link to a specific target URL. This works fine as-is, but when it's shared on Facebook, following the link from there results in 404 due to added query string.

Going step by step:

  1. If I append [/] to the end, it works with or without slash at the end — so far so good.
  2. If I also append {all} or {!all}, the redirect only seems to work if there's content there, i.e. plain "tilaukset" or "tilaukset/" no longer work.

I'm not sure if this is intentional or not, but I guess the question is if there's a way to specify that "I don't care what comes after this, it could contain nothing or it could contain content, either way ignore it"? 😄

I'm using <tilaukset|tilaukset?{all}> for now, but that seems pretty complicated when what I really want is (in terms of regex) "tilaukset.*" (or alternatively "tilaukset/?.*"). This also keeps the query string intact; I'd prefer it to be dropped, but that's not by any means a major issue.

Am I missing something?

FWIW, we needed to preserve query string parameters (mostly UTM params for campaign tracking) with a lot of permutations, and after trying a few different things, we ended up adding this bit to init.php. It seems to be working well for our particular use case.

	// Hook the 404 routine to catch valid URLs with UTM params.
	$this->addHookBefore('ProcessPageView::pageNotFound', function($event){	
		// Get the originally requested URL and its query string.
		// $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'] is not reliable in this environment.
		$source_url = parse_url($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
		$source_path = $source_url['path'];
		$source_querystring = $source_url['query'];	
		// Do nothing if there is no query string. Jumplinks can manage that.
		if(!isset($source_querystring)) return;

		// See if we have a jumplinks entry for the source path WITHOUT the query string.
		$db = wire('database');
		$source_string = trim($source_path, '/');
		$sql = "SELECT source, destination FROM process_jumplinks WHERE source = '".$source_string."/?'";
		$result = $db->query($sql);
		$match = $result->fetch(\PDO::FETCH_ASSOC);
		// If any matches are found, try redirecting to it, appending the original query string.
		$target = $match['destination'];
		if($target != ''){
			// is this a path or a page ID?
			if((strpos($target, 'page:') !== false)){
				$id = (int) ltrim($target, 'page:');
				$page = wire('pages')->get($id);
				$target_url = $page->url.'?'.$source_querystring;
				$target_url = '/'.str_replace('{!all}','',$target);
				$target_url .= '?'.$source_querystring;

			// wire('log')->save('querystrings', 'Source: '.$source_path.', Target: '.$target_url);		

Maybe others will find it helpful.

@teppo @Jason Huck – In JL1, this unfortunately requires two jumplinks – one for including the query string, and the other for excluding it. I know, it really sucks, but JL2 solves this problem by using optional parameters and a little bit of internal trickery. I do still need to add in a boolean flag on jumplinks to indicate whether or not they should even care about the query string. I would prefer to not implement this flag, but sometimes it's useful when you don't care about it so much that you'd rather not even make mention of it in the source.

Hi Folks
I wonder if I could strip with Jumplinks from certain URL's like
just the last part #prodDescription. Could also be a general thing, that whenever this #prodDescription appears, it would be removed.
The client uses those links into a tab on an other System, which means there would several hundert links to be changed.

Your help is much appreciated!

I'm pretty sure those anchor hashes never reach the server and are evaluated by the browser only.

sorry you're right they got to the browser as %23prodDescription. So we would need to strip %23prodDescription this.

I think what I meant to say was that the hash (#prodDescription) is never sent to the server. ProcessWore doesn't know about it. Any redirects that are dependent on the presence or absence of a hash need to be done in JavaScript on the client.

when you call the page with those # it opens the correct page. The Problem is, that they copied all those links with the # and use them in the CRM. So when they generate Quotes the link to this pages form a generated PDF Quote. Therefor it would be helpful if we could remove this particular part %23prodDescription of the url, then the Link would work perfectly. Else you just get an 404.

@bbeer – if you are getting URLs with the encoded %23, then I think that htaccess would be your best bet until JL2 is ready (working on it as I write this). It must be that the CRM is encoding the hash when storing the URL (bad move, CRM), which the browser then sends to the server, which sees it as part of the actual URI. The browser will never send it if it is not encoded. 

If htaccess is too messy, then you could perhaps append the source with {all}, which would catch everything after the last 'segment' – the destination could then just ignore this. Not the best solution I know, but seems like it could work for the time being…

I just installed the ProcessJumplinks module. I am trying to have one of my existing pages redirect to a separate url.

I would like to have visitors to https://www.johnsonville.org/recipes/ be redirected to https://www.johnsonville.org/docs/!recipes/doku.php

Here's what I've set as a jumplink:

Source: recipes/
Destination: https://johnsonville.org/docs/!recipes/doku.php

I'm not seeing any redirection... is this something that can be accomplished with ProcessJumplinks?

Line 785 of ProcessJumplinks.module results in unexpected behaviour:

$this->session->redirect($convertedWildcards, !($starts || $ends));

As soon as the start time of a jumplink is set (after the first hit), the redirect wil be 302 (temporary) even if the end date is empty/not set.
I think only redirects with an end date should be temporary (302), otherwise permanent (301).

New Maintainer Needed

Jumplinks is in need of a new maintainer, as I’m simply unable to commit to continued development. As it is, Jumplinks v2 has been in the pipeline for around four years now. Whilst v1 is stable (after so long, excluding a few minor issues here and there), there are features that people would like in v2 that are not in v1, and so the idea is that a capable maintainer takes over and breathes some life back into the project as I'm unable to due to work commitments.

Current state of v2: backend is mostly functional, and the frontend was being re-written in Svelte (though whomever takes over is free to change this) after having been partially done in jQuery (I no longer use it for anything). As discussed previously, the backend side of things is powered by some Illuminate (Laravel) components, making it easier to interact with the DB and perform tasks on different models. Again, whomever takes over the project is free to change this, or even start from scratch if necessary.

If you are reading this message and are interested in taking over the development of Jumplinks, please pop me a private message and we can take it from there.

Thanks all! 🙂

      Symprowire is a PHP MVC Framework based and built on Symfony using ProcessWire 3.x as DBAL and Service-Provider
      It acts as a Drop-In Replacement Module to handle the Request/Response outside the ProcessWire Admin. Even tough Symfony or any other mature MVC Framework could be intimidating at first, Symprowire tries to abstract Configuration and Symfony Internals away as much as possible to give you a quick start and lift the heavy work for you.
      The main Goal is to give an easy path to follow an MVC Approach during development with ProcessWire and open up the available eco-system.
      You can find the GitHub Repo and more Information here: https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire
      The Symprowire Wiki https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire/wiki How to create a simple Blog with Symprowire https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire/wiki/Symprowire-Blog-Tutorial Last Update
      16.07.2021 // RC 1 v0.6.0 centralized ProcessWire access trough out the Application by wrapping to a Service https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire/releases/tag/v0.6.0-rc-1 Requirements
      PHP ^7.4 Fresh ProcessWire ^3.0.181 with a Blank Profile Composer 2 (v1 should work, not recommended) The usual Symfony Requirements Features
      Twig Dependency Injection Monolog for Symprowire Support for .env YAML Configuration Symfony Console and Console Commands Symfony Webprofiler Full ProcessWire access inside your Controller and Services Webpack Encore support Caveats
      Symfony is no small Framework and will come with a price in terms of Memory Usage and added Overhead. To give you a taste I installed Tracy Debugger alongside to compare ProcessWire profiling with the included Symfony Webprofiler

      So in a fresh install Symprowire would atleast add another 2MB of Memory usage and around 40ms in response time, should be less in production due to the added overhead of the Webprofiler in dev env

      Hello community!

      I want to share a new module I've been working on that I think could be a big boost for multi-language ProcessWire sites.

      Some background, I was looking for a way for our company website to be efficiently translated as working with human translators was pretty laborious and a lack of updating content created a divergence between languages. I, and several other devs here, have talked about translation integrations and have recognized the power that DeepL has. DeepL is an AI deep learning powered service that delivers translation quality beyond any automated service available. After access to the API was opened up to the US, I built Fluency, a DeepL translation integration for ProcessWire.
      Fluency brings automated translation to every multi-language field in the admin, and also provides a translation tool allowing the user to translate their text to any language without it being inside a template's field. With Fluency you can:
      Translate any plain textarea or text input Translate any CKEditor content (yes, with markup) Translate page names for fully localized URLs on every page Translate your in-template translation function wrapped strings Translate modules Fluency is free, and now so is DeepL
      Since this module was first built DeepL has introduced free Developer accounts that allow anyone to start using Fluency at zero cost and beginning with the version 0.3.0 release Fluency now supports free DeepL accounts. As of June 2021 DeepL supports translation to 26 languages and continues to offer more!
      Installation and usage is completely plug and play. Whether you're building a new multi-language site, need to update a site to multi-language, or simply want to stop manually translating a site and make any language a one-click deal, it could not be easier to do it. Fluency works by having you match the languages configured in ProcessWIre to DeepL's. You can have your site translating to any or all of the languages DeepL translates to in minutes (quite literally).
      Let's break out the screenshots...
      When the default language tab is shown, a message is displayed to let users know that translation is available. Clicking on each tab shows a link that says "Translate from English". Clicking it shows an animated overlay with the word "Translating..." cycling through each language and a light gradient shift. Have a CKEditor field? All good. Fluency will translated it and use DeepL's ability to translate text within HTML tags. CKEditor fields can be translated as easily and accurately as text/textarea fields.

      Repeaters and AJAX created fields also have translation enabled thanks to a JavaScript MutationObserver that searches for multi-language fields and adds translation as they're inserted into the DOM. If there's a multi-language field on the page, it will have translation added.

      Same goes for image description fields. Multi-language SEO friendly images are good to go.

      Creating a new page from one of your templates? Translate your title, and also translate your page name for native language URLs. (Not available for Russian, Chinese, or Japanese languages due to URL limitations). These can be changed in the "Settings" tab for any page as well so whether you're translating new pages or existing pages, you control the URLs everywhere.

      Language configuration pages are no different. Translate the names of your languages and search for both Site Translation Files (including all of your modules)

      Translate all of the static text in your templates as well. Notice that the placeholders are retained. DeepL is pretty good at recognizing and keeping non-translatable strings like that. If it is changed, it's easy to fix manually.

      Fluency adds a "Translate" item to the CMS header. When clicked this opens up a modal with a full translation tool that lets the user translate any language to any language. No need to leave the admin if you need to translate content from a secondary language back to the default ProcessWire language. There is also a button to get the current API usage statistics. DeepL account owners can set billing limitations via character count to control costs. This may help larger sites or sites being retrofitted keep an eye on their usage. Fluency can be used by users having roles given the fluency-translate permission.

      It couldn't be easier to add Fluency to your new or existing website. Simply add your API key and you're shown what languages are currently available for translation from/to as provided by DeepL. This list and all configuration options are taken live from the API so when DeepL releases new languages you can add them to your site without any work. No module updates, just an easy configuration. Just match the language you configured in ProcessWire to the DeepL language you want it to be associated with and you're done. Fluency also allows you to create a list of words/phrases that will not be translated which can prevent items such as brands and company names from being translated when they shouldn't

      No "translate page" - Translating multiple fields can be done by clicking multiple translation links on multiple fields at once but engineering a "one click page translate" is not feasible from a user experience standpoint. The time it takes to translate one field can be a second or two, but cumulatively that may take much longer (CKEditor fields are slower than plain text fields). There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't currently on the roadmap. No "translate site" - Same thing goes for translating an entire website at once. It would be great, but it would be a very intense process and take a very (very) long time. There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't on the roadmap. No current support for Inline CKEditor fields - Handling for CKEditor on-demand hasn't been implemented yet, this is planned for a future release though and can be done. I just forgot about it because I've never really used that feature personally.. Alpha release - This module is in alpha. Releases should be stable and usable, but there may be edge case issues. Test the module thoroughly and please report any bugs via a Github issue on the repository or respond here. Please note that the browser plugin for Grammarly conflicts with Fluency (as it does with many web applications). To address this issue it is recommended that you disable Grammarly when using Fluency, or open the admin to edit pages in a private window where Grammarly may not be loaded. This is an issue that may not have a resolution as creating a workaround may not be possible. If you have insight as to how this may be solved please visit the Github page and file a bugfix ticket.
      ProcessWire  3.0+ UIKit Admin Theme That's Fluency in a nutshell. A core effort in this module is to create it so that there is nothing DeepL related hard-coded in that would require updating it when DeepL offers new languages. I would like this to be a future-friendly module that doesn't require developer work to keep it up-to-date.
      The Module Is Free
      This is my first real module and I want to give it back to the community as thanks. This is the best CMS I've worked with (thank you Ryan & contributors) and a great community (thank you dear reader).
      DeepL Developer Accounts
      In addition to paid Pro Developer accounts, DeepL now offers no-cost free accounts. Now all ProcessWire developers and users can use Fluency at no cost.
      Learn more about free and paid accounts by visiting the DeepL website. Sign up for a Developer account, get an API key, and start using Fluency today.

      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 (-).

      New in version 1.1.0
      A new feature comes with version 1.1.0 which offers to record user names of loggedin visitors. Just activate "Record user names" and "Record loggedin user" in the module settings.
      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.

      Inertia Adapter ProcessWire Module
      Hello! Long time no see.
      I created this module so you can use Inertia.js (https://inertiajs.com/) with ProcessWire.
      Inertia allows you to create fully client-side rendered, single-page apps, without much of the complexity that comes with modern SPAs. It does this by leveraging existing server-side frameworks.
      Inertia isn’t a framework, nor is it a replacement to your existing server-side or client-side frameworks. Rather, it’s designed to work with them. Think of Inertia as glue that connects the two. Inertia comes with three official client-side adapters (React, Vue, and Svelte).
      This is an adapter for ProcessWire. Inertia replaces PHP views altogether by returning JavaScript components from controller actions. Those components can be built with your frontend framework of choice.

      Hi all,
      we made a small module for sending SMS via Sms77.io. It supports sending to one and multiple users.
      You can download it from GitHub and follow the instructions on how to install it - it is quite easy. An API key is required for sending, get yours for free @ Sms77 and receive 0,50 €.
      Hope this helps somebody and we are open for improvement suggestions!
      Best regards
