TemplateFieldWidths by Robin S

Quickly set the widths of inputfields in a template.

Template Field Widths

A module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF. Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

Why?


When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.

Installation


Install the Template Field Widths module.

Config options


  • You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open.
    • Field widths entered into the Template Field Widths inputfield are only applied if the Edit Template form is submitted with the Template Field Widths inputfield in an opened state.
    • "Collapsed" is the recommended setting if you think you might also use core inputs for setting field widths in a template context.
  • You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover.
  • You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.

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

“We chose ProcessWire because of its excellent architecture, modular extensibility and the internal API. The CMS offers the necessary flexibility and performance for such a complex website like superbude.de. ProcessWire offers options that are only available for larger systems, such as Drupal, and allows a much slimmer development process.” —xport communication GmbH
