  8. For the Automatic Name I wrote another module. It adds "template_[id]" as the name. Only if its the only allowed template to add AND it has no template file associated. This is basically usefull to group entities. e.g. -- company -- address_list -- address_1 -- address_2 I hook into the ProcessPageAdd ___execute Method. Its the only hookable method in the Module. And all properties are protected. I didnt want to check allowedTemplates again with custom code so I made the function of the ProcessPageAdd Module "getAllowedTemplates()" public. The parent_id is also available in the ProcessPageAdd object could be better to write a getter for that property too but I didnt want to change the core module "ProcessPageAdd" too much. Any suggestions? public function init() { // add a hook after the Page/Add (= ProcessPageAdd.___execute()) $this->pages->addHookAfter('ProcessPageAdd::execute', $this, 'addNameAndProceed'); } /** * If we add a page to a EntityList * */ public function addNameAndProceed($event) { $pageAddObj = $event->object; $allowedTemplates = $pageAddObj->getAllowedTemplates(); $template = reset($allowedTemplates); // reset = first element in associative array // only execute if there is only 1 allowed template // AND it has no file associated (means not visible / no real url) if (count($allowedTemplates)!=1 || is_file($template->filename)){ return; } $parent_id = 0; if(isset($_POST['parent_id'])) { $parent_id = (int) $_POST['parent_id']; } else { $parent_id = isset($_GET['parent_id']) ? (int) $_GET['parent_id'] : 1; } //$event->replace = true; //$template = wire('templates')->get('engagement'); $page = new Page($template); $page->name = 'dummy123'.rand(); $page->parent = $parent_id; $page->save(); $page->name = $template . "_" . $page->id; $page->addStatus(Page::statusUnpublished); $page->save(); $this->message("Automatically added a Name (the id). Entity ready for edit."); $this->session->redirect("../edit/?id={$page->id}"); }
  9. Very nice - It was quite easy to add the 2 subpages. I added a Hook after 'save' and with $hookEvent->arguments[0] you get the page and add the Subpages if necessary Module Code: public function init() { // add a hook after the $pages->save $this->pages->addHookAfter('save', $this, 'createSubPagesForCompany'); } /** * Hook into the pages->save method and create two subpages if necessary * */ public function createSubPagesForCompany($event) { $page = $event->arguments[0]; $templates = wire('templates'); // only for template 'company' // create two subpages 'engagement_list' & 'address_list' if necessary if (!$page->isTrash && $page->template->name == 'company'){ if ($page->children('template=engagement_list')->count()==0){ // create engagement list $eng_list = new Page($templates->get('engagement_list')); $eng_list->parent = $page; $eng_list->name = 'engagements'; $eng_list->save(); $this->message("Engagement Liste erstellt."); } if ($page->children('template=address_list')->count()==0){ // create address list $addr_list = new Page($templates->get('address_list')); $addr_list->parent = $page; $addr_list->name = 'adressen'; $addr_list->save(); $this->message("Adressliste erstellt."); } } }
  10. I did not use repeaters for these reasons: I need to access lists of addresses and lists of projects with full access to their parents. Filter them with different criterias (project start date, address discrict,..) I found it not really convenient to "search" through repeater fieldtypes. E.g.: latest projects (showing also the company name etc), list of ALL addresses on google maps with infowindow including data from the parent (company). When I have more then 5-10 items its not really good usability to have such a huge form. Somewhere its said that repeaters are not "infinitly scalable" but I would need to store a lot of addresses and work with them independently. Would you agree on these points? Thanks for your comment. Hope to find a way to get rid of these repeating tasks to give a "name" to an address and create the placeholders for sub-pages just to structure them in the backend. Its annoying for the client. I hope that anyone has come across this....
  11. Hello, I have a page structure as follows: - Company (only this page has a corresponding php template to show data) - Adresses - Street/ZIP #1 (template "address" without php file) - Street/ZIP #2 - ... - Projects - Project #1 (template "project" without php file) - Project #2 I would like to have the following workflow: 1. When I create a new Company, the pages "Addresses", "Projects" (only placeholders to structure data) should be created automatically. 2. When I add a Project or Address, the first step (Setting a "name", Selecting the only allowed template) should be skipped, instead an empty address should be created with just an ID and the name should/can use the ID too. Anyone knows of a module which helps here? something like "Entities4Processwire". I really like the Idea of everything is a page, but for structure only sometimes Im missing an "Entity" with just an id and custom fields. I checked the core module ProcessPageAdd and probably the "___execute" method of the module would be the place to hook into, right?. Would be nice to hear your thoughts about this. Thanks!
  12. Yes, true. But I think it really depends what someone is doing what hooks are considered useful. Although I think hooks for "Page" could be more useful then for "Module", but that really depends. A somewhat extended documentation on hooks may be useful and some sort of cookbook as it can be found in the HelloWorldModule. What are popular things you write hooks for?
  13. Is there a List of recommended / popular hooks in the meanwhile somewhere? Sorry, found it http://processwire.com/api/hooks/
  14. Great module! Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks a lot.
  15. Hello! I have pages of "companies", each company can have multiple addresses and multiple projects. I add them as sub-pages. To distinguish them I would like to preceed them in the List with "Address: " and "Project: " - in order to better distinguish them. Is it possible? At the moment I just use "template" to output the template name but would be nicer for the client to customize it further. Anyone knows how? Something like: Audi - Address: Somestreet. 99, 12053 City - Address: Another street 99, 12053 City - Address: Yetanotherstreet. 99, 12053 City - Project: XY 2011 - Project: TT 2013 you get the idea I guess. How do you handle pages/entities with multiple different subpages of different types? I didnt want to use repeaters as its a little bit annoying when you have a lot of items. and the documentation says they are not "infinitly scalable"... thx for suggestions, good process!
