New commits to the dev branch synced. Fixed the select statements, as mentioned above (still working here). Also, if the import from ProcessRedirects gets botched somehow, you can now try again. It doesn't keep track of the state of ProcessRedirects, so if you uninstall and reinstall it, the importer will still offer you the opportunity. However, that isn't an issue in my eyes as such a process-flow is not practical.

Hoping to merge into master as soon as possible. I'll give it another day (or just less, keeping in mind the severity of the issues encountered with the current 1.1.3) for more feedback until I merge.

Before I merge, I'd actually like to discuss the behaviour of the new selectors feature.

In its current state, you specify a selector in your destination path using square brackets ([[your-selector-goes-here]]). However, you can also use multiple selectors, and prepend and append to them, which I don't think it actually the right way to do it. Prepending a string to a selector will cause a redirect to a non-existent page. As such, I propose the following:

Instead of using double-square brackets to return the URL of the new destination page (using $page->url), I think it should return the name. This is handy when you want to redirect /blog/2015/<oldname> to /journal/<newname>/, for example.

Then, to return a full URL, we should use use find: as a prefix to the selector - find: template=basic-page, legacy_name={name}, for example.

@Mike - this is really great, especially the new features;

and a lot of care went into the documentation, and is much appreciated.. i hope others will find this useful!

will be upgrading that site i was testing on and report back any issues.

@Macrura

Thanks - I'm glad you're liking it. Yeah, documentation is pretty important to me, and so I make sure I do it to the best of my ability. Originally, I wanted to host the documentation myself, but thought the GH wiki system would be perfect enough for the task.

Regarding the selectors, I'm going to leave the implementation as-is for now (as mentioned in the docs).

Small update committed to dev branch: Debug Mode now shows conversion notes for each wildcard, as in the example below. This gives a little more insight, which I think is quite useful.

Page not found; scanning for jumplinks...

Match found! We'll do the following redirect (301, permanent) when Debug Mode has been turned off:

- From URL:   http://processwire.dev.local/Articles/2015/4/24/Hello%20World.HTML
- To URL:     http://processwire.dev.local/blog/hello-world/

I have a few plans in the pipeline, such as the ability to use your own expressions, but not decided yet.

Lastly, an issue came up a few days ago, where a jumplink is not working. I'm sure it has something to do with timed activation, and will look into it when I have more information. Seems that the end time (when not specified) is not being calculated properly. Normally, it would create a dummy time. I may actually need to look at redoing the whole timed activation feature...

Hi Mike, all of my jumplinks have:

2015 years ago

in the start AND end column;

but the fields are all empty, no timed activation. None of the jumplinks work, even though in debug mode it shows

Match found! We'll do the following redirect (302, temporary) when Debug Mode has been turned off:

- From URL:   http://www.ohmspeaker.com/1/Bookshelf-Speakers.html
- To URL:     http://www.ohmspeaker.com/speakers/walsh-bookshelf/
- Timed:      From Wed, 30 Nov -001 00:00:00 -0500 to Wed, 30 Nov -001 00:00:00 -0500

if i go in and set a start and end date for the jumplink, it does work! but i guess this needs to be fixed?

Hey Macrura - yeah, this seems to be quite weird. I'm sure it has something to do with storing null dates. Can you check in phpMyAdmin (or whatever you use) what the date is in the DB?

hi Mike - here is how the date is formatted:

That is indeed how it should be... I assume you're running on Linux? I develop on Windows, and it appears that most of the troubles that have come up relate to OS differences...

I think I'm going to need to spend some time refactoring Jumplinks.

I see 2015 years ago also, but only on the Mac (localhost dev server using MAMP). On the Linux 2.4 live server the dates are correct.

yes, linux/apache

- mySQL  5.5.40-36.1-log

- PHP 5.4.3

also, i have another site on the same server and on that one everything works fine; no dates are show in the columns, they are empty.

on the problem site which is using the dev version of the module (latest, downloaded today) these were all imported from ProcessRedirects, but then some were added after that and all of the rows show the 2015 years ago;

Those columns shouldn't be empty at all. If no date is specified, it should use 0000-00-00 00:00:00.

on the problem site which is using the dev version of the module (latest, downloaded today) these were all imported from ProcessRedirects, but then some were added after that and all of the rows show the 2015 years ago;

Also finding that to be quite strange because both the importer and the 'editor' use the same function (commitJumplink) to insert the jumplink.

Going to test this out on my Linux server to see if I can reproduce this.

Update: Okay, I'm able to reproduce this in CloudLinux running LightSpeed (and, thus, I'm sure many other nix setups will be the same). However, in my case, the date columns are not empty, but contain the zero date. I'll try and figure out what's going on.

Mike, just curious why you are saving a zero dates? Shouldn't empty suffice and just check if $date_start and $date_end are empty?

Mike, just curious why you are saving a zero dates? Shouldn't empty suffice and just check if $date_start and $date_end are empty?

At first, I was using NULL dates, but that seemed to break on some systems. I then saw that PW uses zero dates, and so used them instead. As the column type is TIMESTAMP, can I even save empty strings?

Edit: Although, I see where I am perhaps wrong. PW uses the following schema

Type          Not Null   Default
TIMESTAMP     TRUE       0000-00-00 00:00:00

Whereas Jumplinks uses:

Type          Not Null   Default
TIMESTAMP     FALSE      NULL

Whilst the default is NULL, Jumplinks sends a zero date to the database.

Will work on this shortly.

Seemingly, PW compares dates in the database to the $lowestDate of 1974-10-10.

I've updated the dev branch to do pretty much the same thing. Also, I have changed the schema of the date_start and date_end columns. The schema will update automatically. To me, this seems to be the better approach. Sure, I could use NULL dates, but recall that giving me problems before.

I have tested on Windows, CloudLinux and CentOS. I'm sure the fix will work just fine on OS X and other nix variants, but please can those affected confirm for me?

As soon as this is confirmed to be fixed, I'll push 1.2.1 to master.

Thanks.

In the context of dates, what I really would find useful, is a date for the latest hit.

So I could, after a period of time, delete those redirects, which had no hits since that period, so those links don't seem to matter any more. That helps to keep my list short. :-)

Indeed, that could be quite useful, and is better than a full-on hit log, as I wanted to do at the beginning. This will also be helpful for an upcoming site migration, so will implement this soon.

I meant that the columns in the PW admin are blank; i didn't check the dates in the database, for the particular site that works...

I'm getting an error with mysql version: 5.6.24

SQLSTATE[22007]: Invalid datetime format: 1292 Incorrect datetime value: 'null' for column 'date_start' at row 1

the error occurs when you don't populate either the start or end dates for a new jumplink.

Elsewhere it has been caused by mysql v5.6 being a lot stricter with datetime fields. Where previous versions have just ignored certain data, v5.6 now raises an error.

Starting mysql with the switch: --sql-mode=ALLOW_INVALID_DATES

removes the issue.

      Wire Mail SMTP

      An extension to the (new) WireMail base class that uses SMTP-transport

      This module integrates EmailMessage, SMTP and SASL php-libraries from Manuel Lemos into ProcessWire. I use this continously evolved libraries for about 10 years now and there was never a reason or occasion not to do so. I use it nearly every day in my office for automated composing and sending personalized messages with attachments, requests for Disposition Notifications, etc. Also I have used it for sending personalized Bulkmails many times.

      The WireMailSmtp module extends the new email-related WireMail base class introduced in ProcessWire 2.4.1 (while this writing, the dev-branch only).
       
      Here are Ryans announcement.



      Current Version 0.6.0
      Changelog: https://github.com/horst-n/WireMailSmtp/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
      get it from the Modules Directory Install and Configure

      Download the module into your site/modules/ directory and install it.

      In the config page you fill in settings for the SMTP server and optionaly the (default) sender, like email address, name and signature.
      You can test the smtp settings directly there. If it says "SUCCESS! SMTP settings appear to work correctly." you are ready to start using it in templates, modules or bootstrap scripts.


      Usage Examples
      The simplest way to use it:
      $numSent = wireMail($to, $from, $subject, $textBody); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody); // or with a default sender emailaddress on config page This will send a plain text message to each recipient.
       
      You may also use the object oriented style:
      $mail = wireMail(); // calling an empty wireMail() returns a wireMail object $mail->to($toEmail, $toName); $mail->from = $yourEmailaddress; // if you don't have set a default sender in config // or if you want to override that $mail->subject($subject); $mail->body($textBody); $numSent = $mail->send(); Or chained, like everywhere in ProcessWire:
      $mail = wireMail(); $numSent = $mail->to($toEmail)->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); Additionaly to the basics there are more options available with WireMailSmtp. The main difference compared to the WireMail BaseClass is the sendSingle option. With it you can set only one To-Recipient but additional CC-Recipients.
      $mail = wireMail(); $mail->sendSingle(true)->to($toEmail, $toName)->cc(array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com')); $numSent = $mail->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); The same as function call with options array:
      $options = array( 'sendSingle' => true, 'cc' => array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com') ); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody, $options); There are methods to your disposal to check if you have the right WireMail-Class and if the SMTP-settings are working:
      $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { // Uups, wrong WireMail-Class: do something to inform the user and quit echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; return; } if(!$mail->testConnection()) { // Connection not working: echo "<p>Couldn't connect to the SMTP server. Please check the {$mail->className} modules config settings!</p>"; return; }  
      A MORE ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD!
      You can add some debug code into a template file and call a page with it:
      $to = array('me@example.com'); $subject = 'Wiremail-SMTP Test ' . date('H:i:s') . ' äöü ÄÖÜ ß'; $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; } else { $mail->from = '--INSERT YOUR SENDER ADDRESS HERE --'; // <--- !!!! $mail->to($to); $mail->subject($subject); $mail->sendSingle(true); $mail->body("Titel\n\ntext text TEXT text text\n"); $mail->bodyHTML("<h1>Titel</h1><p>text text <strong>TEXT</strong> text text</p>"); $dump = $mail->debugSend(1); } So, in short, instead of using $mail->send(), use $mail->debugSend(1) to get output on a frontend testpage.
      The output is PRE formatted and contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection, like this one:
       
      Following are a ...


      List of all options and features


      testConnection () - returns true on success, false on failures


      sendSingle ( true | false ) - default is false

      sendBulk ( true | false ) - default is false, Set this to true if you have lots of recipients (50+)


      to ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      cc ($recipients) - only available with mode sendSingle, one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      bcc ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

       
      from = 'person@example.com' - emailaddress, can be set in module config (called Sender Emailaddress) but it can be overwritten here

      fromName = 'Name Surname' - optional, can be set in module config (called Sender Name) but it can be overwritten here


      priority (3) - 1 = Highest | 2 = High | 3 = Normal | 4 = Low | 5 = Lowest

      dispositionNotification () or notification () - request a Disposition Notification


      subject ($subject) - subject of the message

      body ($textBody) - use this one alone to create and send plainText emailmessages

      bodyHTML ($htmlBody) - use this to create a Multipart Alternative Emailmessage (containing a HTML-Part and a Plaintext-Part as fallback)

      addSignature ( true | false ) - the default-behave is selectable in config screen, this can be overridden here
      (only available if a signature is defined in the config screen)

      attachment ($filename, $alternativeBasename = "") - add attachment file, optionally alternative basename


      send () - send the message(s) and return number of successful sent messages


      debugSend(1) - returns and / or outputs a (pre formatted) dump that contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection. (See above the example code under ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD for further instructions!)


      getResult () - returns a dump (array) with all recipients (to, cc, bcc) and settings you have selected with the message, the message subject and body, and lists of successfull addresses and failed addresses,


      logActivity ($logmessage) - you may log success if you want

      logError ($logmessage) - you may log warnings, too. - Errors are logged automaticaly
       
       
      useSentLog (true | false) - intended for usage with e.g. third party newsletter modules - tells the send() method to make usage of the sentLog-methods - the following three sentLog methods are hookable, e.g. if you don't want log into files you may provide your own storage, or add additional functionality here

      sentLogReset ()  - starts a new LogSession - Best usage would be interactively once when setting up a new Newsletter

      sentLogGet ()  - is called automaticly within the send() method - returns an array containing all previously used emailaddresses

      sentLogAdd ($emailaddress)  - is called automaticly within the send() method

      Food Allergens Module
      A simple List of Food Allergens
      My needs were to provide a simple list of food allergens for our clients with restaurant related activity.
      The idea was to simply output the list (to speed up the data entry) without leaving the food menu editing, eg. opening another page in new tab or window.
      This isn't a perfect solution, but it works fine for my needs and I decided to share the base idea.
      This could also be easily used to show little notes or short "vademecum", not only for the list of food allergens.
      ---
      Main features
      The basis
      All moves from a short editing of the module in this tutorial: How to create custom admin pages by @bernhard
      First of all it creates an empty admin page, with a dedicated permission to let safe-user to see it (this permission has to be created as a new ones, manually or by the module).
      Once the page is created, I have hooked its behaviour into the ready.php, to show the content (basically a list).
      A step further
      With the tips of  @bernhard, @Soma (and many others), see here , the magic happens. 
      The new page will be shown as a panel, so editors will not abandon their data entry to have a quick view to the list.
      A little further
      Why scroll to the top of the page to click a link?
      The next step was to create a sticky button only in the food menu pages.
      Again with a @bernhard tip I moved into the customization of this simple module and the related hook.
      ---
      How to use this module
      After installed, it creates the page /admin/page/allergens/ and the module is to be setted up. The first field is a CKEditor with multi-language. This is the place where to write the informations that will be shown into the page. The next field is a simply text-area where to place a bit of JS that will be appended to the markup of the text (omit the 'script' tags). I also putted a checkbox with a silly statement: this to think at least twice on the safety of the written JS. Now comes the first way to display the link to the page
      Field Note with Link. Enable and save it. The module will display a new row with 4 selects (1 standard and 3 ASM):
      View mode (to show the page as Panel or as Modal PopUp); Templates to select: select one or more and save before proceed, so the  asm-select of the pages will be populated showing all the pages of the selected templates. Pages to select: also here select at least one and save before proceed to populate the asm-select for fields only with the ones that belong to the selected pages. Select the fields where to place the note and save again. That's all: now you will find into the notes of the selected fields the link "See the List of Allergens".
      At the same way, the option for the sticky button, but with a plus
      The field select is obviously unnecessary, but you could play with the last row: the inline styles to fix your sticky button where you like. Here you could set the sticky position of the <div> and the absolute ones of the <a>.

      Video Explanation
      In these screencasts you could see a custom JS that show a "copy" button near a "hanna-code" call.
      This because I've set a specific one for each allergen to show up a tooltip in the front end.

      Registrazione #33.mp4  

      Registrazione #34.mp4 ---
      Last but not the least
      Actually it works fine for my needs, even if it's much improvable: I'm working on the permissions creation, the uninstall section, a separate configs and defaults and how to include the hook into the module leaving free the ready.php. According to a simpler uninstall. Also I would make the link text as a dynamic text field, so it will be more flexible.
      I always learn a lot here, so I would share my code for whom it could be interested.
      I removed the hanna code references, but I provide you the html list of the allergens, English and Italian too, so you can paste them into the "source" of the CKEditor field to have a ready to use module.
      Obviously you are free to modify the code as per your needs.
      Please, keep in mind that I'm not a pro coder and I beg your pardon for my verbosity (speaking and coding). 😉
      I hope be helpful or for inspiration.

      This module is sort of an upgrade to my earlier ImageToMarkdown module, and might be useful to anyone working with Markdown in ProcessWire.
      Copy Markdown
      Adds icons to images and files that allow you to copy a Markdown string to the clipboard. When you click the icon a message at the top left of the screen notifies you that the copying has occurred.
      Screencast

      Note: in the screencast an EasyMDE inputfield is used to preview the Markdown. It's not required to use EasyMDE - an ordinary textarea field could be used.
      Usage: Images
      When you hover on an item in an Images field an asterisk icon appears on the thumbnail. Click the icon to copy an image Markdown string to clipboard. If the "Description" field is populated it is used as the alt text.
      You can also open the "Variations" modal for an image and click the asterisk icon to copy an image Markdown string for an individual variation.
      Usage: Files
      When you hover on an item in a Files field an asterisk icon appears next to the filename. Click the icon to copy a link Markdown string to the clipboard. If the "Description" field is populated it is used as the link text, otherwise the filename is used.

      I've realized that I've been jumping back and forth between the PW API docs and the source code for site modules far too much. The idea to hold all necessary documentation locally in one place has occurred to me before, but getting PHPDocumentor et al set up and running reliably (and producing readable output) as always been too much of a hassle. Today I was asked how I find the right hooks and their arguments, and that inspired me to finally get my backside down on the chair and whip something up, namely the
      Module Api Doc Viewer
      ProcessModuleApiDoc
      It lets you browse the inline documentation and public (optionally also protected) class/method/property information for all modules, core classes and template files in the ProcessWire instance. The documentation is generated on the fly, so you don't have to remember to update your docs whenever you update a module.
      The module is quite fresh, so expect some bugs there. Behind the scenes it uses PHP-Parser together with a custom class that extracts the information I needed, and the core TextformatterMarkdownExtra module for rendering the description part in the phpdoc style comments.
      This is not a replacement / competitor to the API Viewer included in the commercial ProDevTools package. There is quite some information included in the inline documentation that my module can't (and won't) parse, but which makes up parts of the official ProcessWire API docs.
      This, instead, is a kind of Swiss army knife to view PHPDoc style information and get a quick class or function reference.
      If you feel daring and want to give it a spin, or if you just want to read a bit more, visit the module's GitHub repository.
      This is the overview page under "Setup" -> "Module API Docs":

      And this is what the documentation for an individual class looks like:

      The core module documentation can of course be found online, but it didn't make sense not to include them.
      Let me know what you think!
