Map Marker Map

Recommended Posts

For some reason the only array item working here is the height....

echo $map->render($items, 'MapMarker', array('height' => '400px', 'zoom' => '15', 'lat' => '50.923813', 'lng' => '4.431493'));

MarkupGoogleMap is going to attempt to fit to all the markers you add to it. So the zoom, lat, lng settings you send to it are only going to matter if you only send it 0 or 1 markers in $items. For instance, if you replace "$items" with "new PageArray()" then you should see your zoom, lat and lng options working.

I just wanted to bring to your attention that having an apostrophe in the title creates an error.  

Whenever I tried to create a map with locations where the title had an apostrophe in it (such as God's River, Manitoba) I would get an  "Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier" and the map wouldn't display.  

I changed line 191 in MarkupGoogleMap.module from: 

$out .= "$id.addMarker($marker->lat, $marker->lng, '$url', '$title', ''); ";

to:

$out .= "$id.addMarker($marker->lat, $marker->lng, '$url', \"$title\", ''); "; 

and that seems to have fixed it.

The options are working alright but no markers show up. Do you mean it will only work with one marker? If so then how to get the markers from a 'find' show up on the map? Basically just like in the 'skyscrapers' website. As far as I can tell you've done it totally different there.

This module assumes that you have entity encoding turned on for your title field. (See Setup > Fields > title > details > Text formatters). This is something you should always have enabled when using ProcessWire for any kind of HTML-driven output. Changing the quote style in the JS would not be an alternative to entity encoding, because you'd run into the same exact problem if one of the page titles happened to have quotes in it. 

Though you could use something like Markdown or Textile too, but I'm honestly not sure if those entity encode apostrophes or not. If not, the only solution may be an str_replace(array("'", '"'), array('"', '&apos'), $page->title); ahead of time. 

The options are working alright but no markers show up. Do you mean it will only work with one marker? If so then how to get the markers from a 'find' show up on the map? Basically just like in the 'skyscrapers' website. As far as I can tell you've done it totally different there.

This module can accept a single Page or a PageArray. If given a PageArray it'll map them all and fit the map to the markers. If given a single page, it should still map the marker and use the zoom setting from that marker. However, you may need to modify the module to suit your needs. In the instances where I'm using it, I typically modify it. Though the skyscrapers profile was made long before this module, so it is using something quite a bit older and not a module at all.

If using the 'new PageArray()' where or how do I tell it to show the markers that I want?

echo $map->render(new PageArray($pages->find("template=bfd_places, MapMarker!=''")), 'MapMarker', array('height' => '400px', 'zoom' => '2', 'lat' => '50.923813', 'lng' => '4.431493'));

It's probably obvious for seasoned programmers but I can't find any reasonable or understandable examples or explanation. (Hints or directions towards sources are welcome)

This is an amazing module! I've only scraped the surface but just from reading through this thread it seems very powerful.

I was wondering if there was a quick way to hide the businesses that show up on the map. I'm using this to make a restaurant site and I'm trying to avoid having other restaurants (but businesses in general) pop up on the map.

You should give it a PageArray of pages that each have a 'map' field. Each of those pages (that has a 'map' field) will be considered a marker. You specify the name of your map field as the second argument. i.e. 

$places = $pages->find("template=bfd_places"); 
$options = array('width' => '100%', 'height' => '400px');  
// "map" below is the name of the FieldtypeMapMarker field in PW
echo $map->render($places, 'map', $options); 

Also wanted to mention I found a JS error in the last version that corresponds with the error you were seeing before where no marker would appear. In fact, a marker should have been appearing, but there was a small JS error in there, which has now been fixed. Grab the latest to see if it resolves the issue you were having before?

I've actually not seen businesses show up on the map before? :) At least, we aren't specifying any options to make it do so. Can you post a screenshot, just in case I'm misunderstanding what you are talking about? I'm wondering if it might somehow be picking up some google-specific setting associated with your Google account.

Some new $options have been added to MarkupGoogleMap: 

'icon' => 'http://domain.com/path/to/icon.png', 

Full URL to icon file to use for markers. Blank=use default Google marker icon. 
 
'useHoverBox' => false
Use hover box? When true, shows a tooltip-type box when you hover the marker, that is populated with the markerTitleField. This is often more useful than the default presentation google maps uses.
 
'hoverBoxMarkup' => "<div> (see below) </div>"
When useHoverBox is true, you can specify the markup used for it. Use the following (which is the default) as your starting point:
<div 
  data-top='-10' <!-- offset from top of marker (in pixels) -->
  data-left='15' <!-- offset from left of marker (in pixels) -->
  style='        <!-- inline styles, or specify your own class attribute -->
    background: #000; 
    color: #fff; 
    padding: 0.25em 0.5em; 
    border-radius: 3px;
  '>
</div>

One other thing to add: if you use the 'useHoverBox' option and either don't see the hover box working, or see it showing up in the wrong place, you'll want to put your map in a container that has position=relative or position=absolute

echo "<div style='position: relative;'>" . $map->render($items, 'map', $options) . "</div>";

The markers now fit the map better, no more two Alaskas showing. Still, only the height option works with the solution above.

When generating three maps on the same page, the first and third are exactly the same apart from height. In the second zoom and coordinates work but no markers.

	<?php 
	$map = $modules->get('MarkupGoogleMap'); 
	$places = $pages->find("template=bfd_places, MapMarker!='', sort=title"); 
	echo $map->render($places, 'MapMarker', array('height' => '400px')); 
    ?>
    <hr>
    <?php 
	echo $map->render(new PageArray($pages->find("template=bfd_places")), 'MapMarker', array('height' => '400px', 'zoom' => '5', 'lat' => '50.923813', 'lng' => '4.431493')); 
    ?>
    <hr>
    <?php
    $places = $pages->find("template=bfd_places"); 
	$options = array('width' => '100%', 'height' => '300px',  'zoom' => '5',  'lat' => '50.923813', 'lng' => '4.431493');  
	echo $map->render($places, 'MapMarker', $options); 
	?>

See result here: http://www.birthfactdeathcalendar.net/bfd_processwire/places/

Entering an address or coordinates in the MapMarker address field doesn't keep the info yet upon publishing the page either. It still needs to be entered twice. Once in a while, when fiddling with zoom or moving the marker on the map before publishing the page it keeps the input properly.

Using the new version and will try out the new icon and hover options soon. Thank you for that.

If you set your map to satellite view these 'points of interest' don't show up. Well, only parks and some official buildings do but no business stuff. When zooming in, street names are all visible and people can even switch to street view to actually see the place you're 'marking'.

This config option should disable the POI for you:

 [ { featureType: "poi", elementType: "labels", stylers: [ { visibility: "off" } ] } ]

Obviously this is not a module setting, but rather a setting you need to add to the javascript that loads the map on the frontend.

Hope that helps.

Thanks but this is the code I have:

In the head:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false"></script>

And then in the body:

<?php // Render the map

				$map = $modules->get('MarkupGoogleMap');
				echo $map->render($page, 'address_map', array('type' => 'ROADMAP'));
			?>

Where would I put the code you suggest?

Hi tina,

Sorry for the limited answer - was in a hurry.

Actually looking at this module a little more, I realize that I have never used the built-in render, but rather just used it as a way to enter addresses in the admin. I have been using Ryan's RCDmap class: http://processwire.com/talk/topic/690-map-marker-fieldtype/?p=10667

Although I actually haven't hidden the poi in any PW sites yet, so I don't have a final code snippet for you. However, this is the code that I used on a mobile site I developed that made use of: https://code.google.com/p/jquery-ui-map/

var myStyles =[
    {
        featureType: "poi",
        elementType: "labels",
        stylers: [
              { visibility: "off" }
        ]
    }
];

$('#map_canvas').gmap('option', 'styles', myStyles);
 

I wouldn't necessarily recommend jquery-ui-map - I thought it might be worth trying, but mostly just seemed to add another layer of complexity. I think I would stick with the standard gmaps api.

Here is a relevant POI link from google: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/reference#MapTypeStyleFeatureType

Hope that helps.

Thanks Adrian, I decided to just use the Google Maps API and the values created by the ProcessWire module to assist in that. I used the visibility: off for the POI and that worked. Thanks.

Trying to get multiple markers on a map. All found MapMarker entries show up in the list, but only the last one from the list shows up on the map. How do I get them all to show up on the map?

$features = $pages->find("parent=/events/, bfd_day.name=$todayday, bfd_month.name=$todaymonth, sort=bfd_year");
foreach($features as $feature) {
$placepage = $feature->bfd_events_places_id_list;
echo "{$placepage->MapMarker}";
};

$map = $modules->get('MarkupGoogleMap'); 
$options = array('width' => '100%', 'height' => '400px');
echo $map->render($placepage, 'MapMarker', $options);

Based on your code, from what I can tell, you need to pass $features to the $map->render() rather than $placepage.

When passing $features there is no map at all....

The MapMarker field is called into 'events' by a matching id, 'bfd_events_places_id_list' is the page id of a 'place' page. A 'place' page can be used for more than one event. When the id matches the fields from the 'place' page (name, street, city, state, country, MapMarker) are shown on the 'event' page, with the correct map.

echo "{$placepage->MapMarker}"; shows the individual 'MapMarker' data in the foreach list but I can't find how to enter it in the $map->render(), except that it only shows the last marker.

The $map->render() requires either a Page with a 'MapMarker' field or a PageArray with multiple pages, each containing a 'MapMarker' field. If you are giving it a PageArray of multiple pages, and it's only showing a marker for 1 of them, then chances are that only one of the pages you gave it has a 'MapMarker' field. Keep in mind the field must be named consistently with what you tell it. Meaning, if you are calling $map->render($features, 'MapMarker', $options); then every one of the pages in $features must literally have a map marker field named 'MapMarker'. If they don't, then chances are that $features is not the group of pages you really want to send to render(). But $placepage clearly isn't either, since that's just 1 page (which is only going to print 1 marker). Based on looking at your code, I'm guessing this might be what you want?

$features = $pages->find("parent=/events/, bfd_day.name=$todayday, bfd_month.name=$todaymonth, sort=bfd_year");
$markers = new PageArray();
foreach($features as $feature) {
  $markers->add($feature->bfd_events_places_id_list); 
}
$map = $modules->get('MarkupGoogleMap'); 
$options = array('width' => '100%', 'height' => '400px');
echo $map->render($markers, 'MapMarker', $options);

Thank you very much. I would never have thought of anything like this. Any idea where/how I can pimp by low/moderate php skills to handle such situations?

When there are two identical markers (two events happening on the same day in the same place in above example), the map is not rendered.

Hello all,

I would like to add a standard Gmaps info window (the white balloon type with shadow) to my marker.

I have a single marker on the map and use standard $map->render function.

From the Gmaps API documentation about info windows I see that I somehow have to add something like

  var infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({
      content: contentString
  });

How would I go about that, can I create something like a hook event to extend the standard render function from the module or can I just add a piece of JS to the page?

Any enlightenment would be much appreciated.

Cheers

gerhard

I've installed this module for the first time locally, on PW 2.3.8 dev.

The backend looks fine - except a notice at the bottom: Geocode OFF

Anybody knows why?

In my map template, I have just this:

// head:
<script type='text/javascript' src='https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false'></script>

// body:
<?php
echo $page->marker->address . '<hr>'; 	// outputs the address you entered
echo $page->marker->lat . '<hr>'; 	// outputs the latitude
echo $page->marker->lng . '<hr>'; 	// outputs the longitude

$map = $modules->get('MarkupGoogleMap');
echo $map->render($page, 'map');
?>

What I actually see in the rendered frontend, is just this:

<div id='mgmap1' class='MarkupGoogleMap' style='width: 100%; height: 300px;'></div><script type='text/javascript'>if(typeof google === 'undefined' || typeof google.maps === 'undefined') { alert('MarkupGoogleMap Error: Please add the maps.googleapis.com script in your document head.'); } else { var mgmap1 = new MarkupGoogleMap(); mgmap1.setOption('zoom', 18); mgmap1.setOption('mapTypeId', google.maps.MapTypeId.HYBRID); mgmap1.init('mgmap1', 0.000000, 0.000000); mgmap1.addMarker(0.000000, 0.000000, '/path/to/google-map-test/', 'Google Map Test', ''); }</script>

No map is shown, no address or lat/lng are shown either.

Is it necessary to add your own GM API key somewhere?

Is it known to simply not work from localhost / 127.0.0.1?

Or do I have to change the GM JS URL or add parameters? (v3)?

Thanks in advance for tips and pointers.

      ProcessWire InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDuplicate
      Thanks to the great ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use a content module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      This module extends the commercial ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" by the function to duplicate repeater items from one page to another page. The condition is that the target field is the same matrix field from which the item is duplicated. This module is currently understood as proof of concept. There are a few limitations that need to be considered. The intention of the module is that this functionality is integrated into the core of RepeaterMatrix and does not require an extra module.
      Check out the screencast
      What the module can do
      Duplicate multible repeater items from one page to another No matter how complex the item is Full support for file and image fields Multilingual support Support of Min and Max settings Live synchronization of clipboard between multiple browser tabs. Copy an item and simply switch the browser tab to the target page and you will immediately see the past button Support of multiple RepeaterMatrix fields on one page Configurable which roles and fields are excluded Configurable dialogs for copy and paste Duplicated items are automatically pasted to the end of the target field and set to hidden status so that changes are not directly published Automatic clipboard update when other items are picked Automatically removes old clipboard data if it is not pasted within 6 hours Delete clipboard itself by clicking the selected item again Benefit: unbelievably fast workflow and content replication What the module can't do
      Before an item can be duplicated in its current version, the source page must be saved. This means that if you make changes to an item and copy this, the old saved state will be duplicated Dynamic loading is currently not possible. Means no AJAX. When pasting, the target page is saved completely No support for nested repeater items. Currently only first level items can be duplicated. Means a repeater field in a repeater field cannot be duplicated. Workaround: simply duplicate the parent item Dynamic reloading and adding of repeater items cannot be registered. Several interfaces and events from the core are missing. The initialization occurs only once after the page load event Changelog

      A new module that hasn't had a lot of testing yet. Please do your own testing before deploying on any production website.
      Custom Paths
      Allows any page to have a custom path/URL.
      Note: Custom Paths is incompatible with the core LanguageSupportPageNames module. I have no experience working with LanguageSupportPageNames or multi-language sites in general so I'm not in a position to work out if a fix is possible. If anyone with multi-language experience can contribute a fix it would be much appreciated!
      Screenshot

      Usage
      The module creates a field named custom_path on install. Add the custom_path field to the template of any page you want to set a custom path for. Whatever path is entered into this field determines the path and URL of the page ($page->path and $page->url). Page numbers and URL segments are supported if these are enabled for the template, and previous custom paths are managed by PagePathHistory if that module is installed.
      The custom_path field appears on the Settings tab in Page Edit by default but there is an option in the module configuration to disable this if you want to position the field among the other template fields.
      If the custom_path field is populated for a page it should be a path that is relative to the site root and that starts with a forward slash. The module prevents the same custom path being set for more than one page.
      The custom_path value takes precedence over any ProcessWire path. You can even override the Home page by setting a custom path of "/" for a page.
      It is highly recommended to set access controls on the custom_path field so that only privileged roles can edit it: superuser-only is recommended.
      It is up to the user to set and maintain suitable custom paths for any pages where the module is in use. Make sure your custom paths are compatible with ProcessWire's $config and .htaccess settings, and if you are basing the custom path on the names of parent pages you will probably want to have a strategy for updating custom paths if parent pages are renamed or moved.
      Example hooks to Pages::saveReady
      You might want to use a Pages::saveReady hook to automatically set the custom path for some pages. Below are a couple of examples.
      1. In this example the start of the custom path is fixed but the end of the path will update dynamically according to the name of the page:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'my_template') { $page->custom_path = "/some-custom/path-segments/$page->name/"; } }); 2. The Custom Paths module adds a new Page::realPath method/property that can be used to get the "real" ProcessWire path to a page that might have a custom path set. In this example the custom path for news items is derived from the real ProcessWire path but a parent named "news-items" is removed:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'news_item') { $page->custom_path = str_replace('/news-items/', '/', $page->realPath); } }); Caveats
      The custom paths will be used automatically for links created in CKEditor fields, but if you have the "link abstraction" option enabled for CKEditor fields (Details > Markup/HTML (Content Type) > HTML Options) then you will see notices from MarkupQA warning you that it is unable to resolve the links.
      Installation
      Install the Custom Paths module.
      Uninstallation
      The custom_path field is not automatically deleted when the module is uninstalled. You can delete it manually if the field is no longer needed.

      Hey folks!
      I'm happy to finally introduce a project I've been working on for quite a while now: it's called Wireframe, and it is an output framework for ProcessWire.
      Note that I'm posting this in the module development area, maily because this project is still in rather early stage. I've built a couple of sites with it myself, and parts of the codebase have been powering some pretty big and complex sites for many years now, but this should still be considered a soft launch 🙂
      --
      Long story short, Wireframe is a module that provides the "backbone" for building sites (and apps) with ProcessWire using an MVC (or perhaps MVVM... one of those three or four letter acronyms anyway) inspired methodology. You could say that it's an output strategy, but I prefer the term "output framework", since in my mind the word "strategy" means something less tangible. A way of doing things, rather than a tool that actually does things.
      Wireframe (the module) provides a basic implementation for some familiar MVC concepts, such as Controllers and a View layer – the latter of which consists of layouts, partials, and template-specific views. There's no "model" layer, since in this context ProcessWire is the model. As a module Wireframe is actually quite simple – not even nearly the biggest one I've built – but there's still quite a bit of stuff to "get", so I've put together a demo & documentation site for it at https://wireframe-framework.com/.
      In addition to the core module, I'm also working on a couple of site profiles based on it. My current idea is actually to keep the module very light-weight, and implement most of the "opinionated" stuff in site profiles and/or companion modules. For an example MarkupMenu (which I released a while ago) was developed as one of those "companion modules" when I needed a menu module to use on the site profiles.
      Currently there are two public site profiles based on Wireframe:
      site-wireframe-docs is the demo&docs site mentioned above, just with placeholder content replaced with placeholder content. It's not a particularly complex site, but I believe it's still a pretty nice way to dig into the Wireframe module. site-wireframe-boilerplate is a boilerplate (or starter) site profile based on the docs site. This is still very much a work in progress, but essentially I'm trying to build a flexible yet full-featured starter profile you can just grab and start building upon. There will be a proper build process for resources, it will include most of the basic features one tends to need from site to site, etc. --
      Requirements and getting started:
      Wireframe can be installed just like any ProcessWire module. Just clone or download it to your site/modules/ directory and install. It doesn't, though, do a whole lot of stuff on itself – please check out the documentation site for a step-by-step guide on setting up the directory structure, adding the "bootstrap file", etc. You may find it easier to install one of the site profiles mentioned above, but note that this process involves the use of Composer. In the case of the site profiles you can install ProcessWire as usual and download or clone the site profile directory into your setup, but after that you should run "composer install" to get all the dependencies – including the Wireframe module – in place. Hard requirements for Wireframe are ProcessWire 3.0.112 and PHP 7.1+. The codebase is authored with current PHP versions in mind, and while running it on 7.0 may be possible, anything below that definitely won't work. A feature I added just today to the Wireframe module is that in case ProcessWire has write access to your site/templates/ directory, you can use the module settings screen to create the expected directories automatically. Currently that's all, and the module won't – for an example – create Controllers or layouts for you, so you should check out the site profiles for examples on these. (I'm probably going to include some additional helper features in the near future.)
      --
      This project is loosely based on an earlier project called pw-mvc, i.e. the main concepts (such as Controllers and the View layer) are very similar. That being said, Wireframe is a major upgrade in terms of both functionality and architecture: namespaces and autoloader support are now baked in, the codebase requires PHP 7, Controllers are classes extending \Wireframe\Controller (instead of regular "flat" PHP files), implementation based on a module instead of a collection of drop-in files, etc.
      While Wireframe is indeed still in a relatively early stage (0.3.0 was launched today, in case version numbers matter) for the most part I'm happy with the way it works, and likely won't change it too drastically anytime soon – so feel free to give it a try, and if you do, please let me know how it went. I will continue building upon this project, and I am also constantly working on various side projects, such as the site profiles and a few unannounced helper modules.
      I should probably add that while Wireframe is not hard to use, it is more geared towards those interested in "software development" type methodology. With future updates to the module, the site profiles, and the docs I hope to lower the learning curve, but certain level of "developer focus" will remain. Although of course the optimal outcome would be if I could use this project to lure more folks towards that end of the spectrum... 🙂

      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.
      Advantages
      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.
      Disadvantages
      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. There are 4 different view modes.
      View mode "Day" 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. View mode "Month" shows the total of all visitors per day from the first to the last day of the selected month. View mode "Year" shows the total of all visitors per month from the first to the last month of the selected year. View mode "Total" shows the total of all visitors per year for all recorded years. Please note that multiple visits from the same IP address within the selected period are counted as a single visitor.
      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.
      IP2Location
      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.
      Dragscroll
      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.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      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.
      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 (-).

      This module allows you to integrate hCaptcha bot / spam protection into ProcessWire forms. hCaptcha is a great alternative to Google ReCaptcha, especially if you are in the EU and need to comply with privacy regulations.

      The development of this module is sponsored by schwarzdesign.
      The module is built as an Inputfield, allowing you to integrate it into any ProcessWire form you want. It's primarily intended for frontend forms and can be added to Form Builder forms for automatic spam protection. There's a step-by-step guide for adding the hCaptcha widget to Form Builder forms in the README, as well as instructions for API usage.
      Features
      Inputfield that displays an hCaptcha widget in ProcessWire forms. The inputfield verifies the hCaptcha response upon submission, and adds a field error if it is invalid. All hCaptcha configuration options for the widget (theme, display size etc) can be changed through the inputfield configuration, as well as programmatically. hCaptcha script options can be changed through a hook. Error messages can be translated through ProcessWire's site translations. hCaptcha secret keys and site-keys can be set for each individual inputfield or globally in your config.php. Error codes and failures are logged to help you find configuration errors. Please check the README for setup instructions.
