ProcessWire Modules Fieldtype

Fieldtype that stores reference to one or more other modules.


This is similar to FieldtypeModule except that it stores multiple modules. It uses asmSelect to make the selection sortable/searchable.

To install

Copy to /site/modules/ and go to Admin > Modules > Check for new modules.

Usage notes

Note the configuration settings that appear on the details tab when creating a new field that uses this module.

Lets say you created a field called my_modules that uses this Fieldtype. The value of your $page->my_modules will be a PHP array. When $page->outputFormatting is TRUE, the values of the array will be selected module objects. When output formatting is FALSE, the values will be module IDs (integers). Those IDs can be converted to either the module class name or an instance of the module using existing $modules API methods.

Install and use modules at your own risk. Always have a site and database backup before installing new modules.

“Indeed, if ProcessWire can be considered as a CMS in its own right, it also offers all the advantages of a CMF (Content Management Framework). Unlike other solutions, the programmer is not forced to follow the proposed model and can integrate his/her ways of doing things.” —Guy Verville, Spiria Digital Inc.
