TemplateParent

ProcessWire module that allows limiting templates for new pages based on the parent page

Status


Beta - Proof-of-Concept, use at your own risk (though this shouldn't be too high as the module saves all settings in its own database table)

Compatibility


Tested with ProcessWire 2.7 and 3.x, though it should also work on older versions. If it works for you on 2.5 or 2.6, please let me know.

Usage


  • Download ZIP file and extract it under site/modules in your ProcessWire installation
  • In PW's backend, click on Modules -> Refresh
  • Install TemplateParent (ProcessTemplateParent will be installed alongside)
  • You'll find a new menu entry "Template Parents" under "Setup"
  • On this page, assign possible parent pages to your templates

Restrictions entered here will be applied after the regular regular restrictions in the template's family settings are applied, which means you can't make an already excluded template visible in the drop-down list for new page through this method, only disallow otherwise allowed templates.

From version 0.0.6 on you can also edit allowed parents directly on the family tab of the template.

Advanced


This module also supports inheritance, i.e. allowing a template for child pages if the template has been allowed for one of the parent's ancestors.

To enable this functionality, go to Modules -> Configure -> ProcessTemplateParents, check the box for inheritance and save.

Note that a permission once granted for a parent can't be revoked further down.

“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
