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?

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...

Ah, indeed. Those should be blank when not in use.

I'm sure the latest fix will work for you - please let me know if it does. :)

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.

When using mysql v5.6 with the switch: --sql-mode=ALLOW_INVALID_DATES

blank start and end dates get set to 2015 years ago, the dev branch solved this but unfortunately didn't fix the sql error.

      Needed a really simple solution to embed audio files within page content and couldn't find a module for that, so here we go. Textformatter Audio Embed works a bit like Textformatter Video Embed, converting this:
      <p>https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3</p> Into this:
      <audio controls class="TextformatterAudioEmbed"> <source src="https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3" type="audio/mpeg"> </audio> The audio element has pretty good browser support, so quite often this should be enough to get things rolling 🙂

      Hi all, I am going round and round in circles and would greatly appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction.
      I am sure I am doing something dumb, or missing something I should know, but don't. Story of my life 😉

      Playing round with a module and my basic problem is I want to upload an image and also use InputfieldMarkup and other Inputfields.
      Going back and forth between trying an api generated page defining Fieldgroup, Template, Fields, Page and the InputfieldWrapper method.

      InputfieldWrapper method works great for all the markup stuff, but I just can't wrap my head around what I need to do to save the image to the database.
      Can generate a Field for it (thanks to the api investigations) but not sure what I need to do to link the Inputfield to that. Tried a lot of stuff from various threads, of varying dates without luck.
      Undoubtedly not helped by me not knowing enough.

      Defining Fieldgroup etc through the api seems nice and clean and works great for the images but I can't wrap my head around how/if I can add/append/hook the InputfieldWrapper/InputfieldMarkup stuff I'd like to include on that template as well. Not even sure if it should be where it is on ___install with the Fieldtype stuff or later on . Not getting Tracy errors, just nothing seems to happen.
      If anyone has any ideas or can point me in the right direction, that would be great because at the moment I am stumbling round in the dark.

      Since it's featured in ProcessWire Weekly #310, now is the time to make it official:
      Here is Twack!
      I really like the following introduction from ProcessWire Weekly, so I hope it is ok if I use it here, too. Look at the project's README for more details!
      Twack is a new — or rather newish — third party module for ProcessWire that provides support for reusable components in an Angular-inspired way. Twack is implemented as an installable module, and a collection of helper and base classes. Key concepts introduced by this module are:
      Components, which have separate views and controllers. Views are simple PHP files that handle the output for the component, whereas controllers extend the TwackComponent base class and provide additional data handling capabilities. Services, which are singletons that provide a shared service where components can request data. The README for Twack uses a NewsService, which returns data related to news items, as an example of a service. Twack components are designed for reusability and encapsulating a set of features for easy maintainability, can handle hierarchical or recursive use (child components), and are simple to integrate with an existing site — even when said site wasn't originally developed with Twack.
      A very basic Twack component view could look something like this:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; ?> <h1>Hello World!</h1> And here's how you could render it via the API:
      <?php namespace Processwire; $twack = $modules->get('Twack'); $hello = $twack->getNewComponent('HelloWorld'); ?> <html> <head> <title>Hello World</title> </head> <body> <?= $hello->render() ?> </body> </html> Now, just to add a bit more context, here's a simple component controller:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; class HelloWorld extends TwackComponent { public function __construct($args) { parent::__construct($args); $this->title = 'Hello World!'; if(isset($args['title'])) { $this->title = $args['title']; } } } As you can see, there's not a whole lot new stuff to learn here if you'd like to give Twack a try in one of your projects. The Twack README provides a really informative and easy to follow introduction to all the key concepts (as well as some additional examples) so be sure to check that out before getting started. 
      Twack is in development for several years and I use it for every new project I build. Also integrated is an easy to handle workflow to make outputs as JSON, so it can be used to build responses for a REST-api as well. I will work that out in one section in the readme as well. 
      If you want to see the module in an actual project, I have published the code of www.musical-fabrik.de in a repository. It runs completely with Twack and has an app-endpoint with ajax-output as well.
      I really look forward to hear, what you think of Twack🥳!

      Page Reference Default Value
      Most ProcessWire core inputfield types that can be used with a Page Reference field support a "Default value" setting. This module extends support for default values to the following core inputfield types:
      Page List Select Page List Select Multiple Page Autocomplete (single and multiple) Seeing as these inputfield types only support the selection of pages a Page List Select / Page List Select Multiple is used for defining the default value instead of the Text / Textarea field used by the core for other inputfield types. This makes defining a default value a bit more user-friendly.
      Note that as per the core "Default value" setting, the Page Reference field must be set to "required" in order for the default value to be used.
