    @collectiveaccess Sorry for the belated reply. Objects are no longer showing but this happened only after a couple of days. Some backend process, perhaps? Unclear if these are still in the database however. Thanks!

    one more about the _guid: is there a way currently (1.7.8 master) to get this to show up in a UI (as read-only 'field') - since it becomes the link to another system it would be nice to have it accessible to the user while editing (I could prepopulate it in a custom metadata element)

    Hi. Is there a way to populate the bundle after using quick add to create an entity? Right now after using quick add I have to write again to get a suggestion and then select it
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    @the666bbq No there's not. It would be easy to add though. Add a JIRA for it?
    @mbutel_twitter It's supposed to populate with the newly create entity name.

    @collectiveaccess it isn't working like that for me. Do you know why it may be?

    is there a way to know if an item was newly created or updated in hookSaveItem ?

    Hi everybody, can you recommend coders, familiar with CA that could be interested in writing the raw version of a pawtucket-plugin for me? I can pay smth, but my budget is limited.

    Hey guys, looking for someone to instal Providence and Pawtucket on existing webserver/domain for a UK town archive (we’ve had a couple of unsuccessful goes ourselves over the last year or so, but it’s just a little outside our skillset). Able to negotiate a fee to get it set up.

    It would need the usual image handling tools, but not video, and would need the watermark option added so that it appears automatically on images show on Pawtucket. It would also require the Google Maps to appear in the Pawtucket side (I have an API key).

    Hope you can help - just drop me a message.
    Thanks

    Doing Exports to CSV, exporting objects and I want to export relationships. It's easy to get the IDs or IDNO's, but I need the name of the connection as well.
    I see that by setting context to the table I want relationships too I can export the type-name via relationship_typename, but that isn't CSV compatible since each contexted relationship becomes its own column and thus destroying the CSV format.
    How do I get relationship_typename but as a list in one column, like when I ask for ca_objects.related.object_id and I get "1337;1400;6000"
    I thought I had a solution when I read that context is swapped for all children, but ya are not allowed to set child and parrent ID in CSV.
    Also thought I could output both things in a template, but I can't get relationship_typename to be outputed in a template, and I can't get 2 different values in a template anyways...

    Hi. Is there a way to completely change the Related Bundle Template? I want to remove relationship_typename from the item, but I can't find where it comes from. The default in app.conf doesn't seem to affect what is shown in the editor screen.

    @mbutel_twitter No there is not. Those relationship types are always going to be there.
    @TBthegr81 Sounds like a a bug actually
    TBthegr81
    @TBthegr81
    @collectiveaccess What part? That setting context isn't CSV compatible?
    Is there any other way to get the relationship_typename without setting context?
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    It should output relationship typenames for all relationships, in order, with the specified delimiter
    It sounds as if it's not doing that

    how do you feed the InformationService metadata fields values during import ? like wikipedia for Brexit [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brexit]
    the666bbq
    @the666bbq
    ok I found it :) you should either only input the (unique) url, or the triplet label|id|url

    Hi, i was wondering if it is possible to replace lookup field with hierarchical while adding relationships? I have a relationship field in Objects to link to Collections, when i click on 'Add relationship' in object editor a lookup field appears where i can search and select a collection to establish a relationship. To make this search easy i want to replace lookup field with hierarchical field. But i am not sure if this is possible. If possible, how to achieve so?

    In the default summary (Researcher Display), related entities aren't showing their relationship type (had an artist). The data exists, and shows up on any other display in the application.

    The issue is not in our CA 1.7.7 installation, but after migrating, is not appearing in 1.7.8.

    :wave: Hi all- new here. Working on a new pawtucket theme and saw a php warning about a rouge continue in ca_editor_ui_screens.php on line 721 -- wondering what's the best way to report the bug. Issue in github? Put in a PR in github? Make a jira ticket? Just wondering about the best workflow for reporting.
    FYI this is on php 7.4 and just a warning

    Hi all. Was hoping someone could help me figure out image watermarking? I've made the relevant changes in the providence /app/conf/media_processing.conf file, and placed the watermark in /app/watermarks/ directory. However, no matter what configurations I try I cannot get an image to actually get watermarked, either on the providence side or Pawtucket2 side. I'm using the latest version of each, as well as the imagemagick library which supports watermarking.
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    @naeemmuhammad It's not currently supported. Only list items and storage locations are supported as they have global hierarchies... basically single roots. Any collection can be the root of a hierarchy, so either you show all collections in the root or have a search kick it off. It's doable, but we've never gotten round to figuring it out and there's not much demand for it.
    @sheggen Check the display template for that one

    @cemenson make sure the path to the watermark image is correct. app/watermarks is just a convention - the watermarks can be in any directory readable by the web server, so long as the path in media_processing.conf is correct.
    @timatron_twitter Make a JIRA ticket for it. There are changes in PHP 7.4 that trigger new warnings. We've obviously missed a few.
    Cem Enson
    @cemenson
    @collectiveaccess thanks - I've made sure. It's definitely the correct path. Is there anything else that may be the problem?
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    The watermark may not be readable by the web server user
    Or maybe imagick is broken. I can't say I've personally used it in a very long time. We use gmagick on our servers.
    Imagick brokeness would be my absolutely last guess though, so I should have saved that one for later :-)
    Cem Enson
    @cemenson
    the path i'm using is <ca_app_dir>/watermarks/lp-140x140-watermark.png in the config, and the actual path is /app/watermarks/lp-140x140-watermark.png . It has full read permission set too
    An example of the actual transfer rule config below:
    MEDIA_TRANSFORMATION_RULES = {
        # ---------------------------------------------------------
        # Image rules
        # ---------------------------------------------------------
        rule_icon_image = {
            SCALE = {
                width = 72, height = 72, mode = fill_box, antialiasing = 0.5
            },
            WATERMARK = {
                 image = <ca_app_dir>/watermarks/lp-140x140-watermark.png
            },
            SET = {quality = 75, format = image/jpeg}
        },
    as for the library - i'm using ImageMagick: Provides image processing and conversion services using ImageMagick via exec() calls to ImageMagick binaries

    looks like I dont have jira access, its on the develop branch this is the warning... i think it just needs to be a continue 2 ... Warning: "continue" targeting switch is equivalent to "break". Did you mean to use "continue 2"? in /var/www/cooperunion-greathall/app/models/ca_editor_ui_screens.php on line 721

    Hello all! I need a little help with modifying my mediaFilenameToObjectIdnoRegexes in app.conf for my batch media imports. I have files that named with the idno and followed by an underscore and a bunch of different formats (Example: “FREDA0023_2R(R).tiff” ). I have tried using the “starts with” option in the advanced options, to no avail. I gather from (https://collectiveaccess.org/support/index.php?p=/discussion/298672/media-import-multiple-images-for-same-idno-solved) that I would have to modify the regular expressions, but at am a loss as to how to do this. Can anyone provide me with an example of how to rewrite the regexes line to exclude everything after the underscore or exclude expressions like “_2R(R)” so that the matching might work? Greatly appreciate it!

    i recently brought my providence instance up to date with the develop branch (it had been several months behind) and i'm now experiencing issues browsing all record types by default-valued intrinsic fields (e.g. selecting 'new' in status or 'not accessible to the public' in access). before making the selection, it'll tell me the correct number of records with the value, but after selecting will return 0 results. filtering by these fields in an advanced search works fine, however.

    the only caveat with my set up -- that i can think of -- is that i've had to revert a few ElasticSearch files to maintain functionality with ES5 but i didn't think these played a role in browsing.

    Troubleshooting out of process indexing - our two installations recently stopped indexing new content. I have been able to run caUtils process-indexing-queue via cron as temporary fix. Seth has noted in the forum that one cause could be inability for the domain to resolve internally when making the socket connection, but our network admins report this isn't the case for us. Are there other possibilities for us to look for?

    i just wanted to add that i've reverted /app/lib/Browse/BrowseEngine.php to the previous version i had been using (~ jan. 2020) and it's working again, so i'm guessing something in that file threw things for a loop...i'll do some digging next week to try and identify exactly what went wrong with my system.

    hi there, could somebody share an example of a pawtucket2 plugin that generates a full new view and menu entry - As a starting point for developing my own plugin? I only have "findingAid" in my plugins folder. Or can you recommend people familiar with CA that would support me in this development for compensation?
