  1. https://github.com/kreativan/FieldtypeFolderOptions Maybe this custom field type can help or give u an idea, no multiselect support. Define the folder, and field will let u select files from it... then $files->include("my_folder/{$page->my_field_name}.php");
  2. It's not about having the tools, its about having it already build and "standardised". // get the single data example.com/api/v1/page/123 // get child pages data example.com/api/v1/pages/123 // use get varable as selector example.com/api/v1/pages/?template=product // filter child pages example.com/api/v1/pages/123?category=tv // get user example.com/api/v1/user/123 // get users example.com/api/v1/users/?role=custumer etc... Edit: yes, this responds with json. Looking it from the back-end perspective, nothing is missing. If you try to look at the things from the front-end, it might look different. What others are doing, is just providing external api out-of-the-box, which attracts new users especially front-end developers, and make things easier for people who are not experienced with building apis, or want to save time, so instead of processwire choosing other platforms, because they have this functionality built in.
  3. I tired to make a workflow example using SSG and headless CMS, in previews post... Again, what is missing is REST api "out of the box". There is no steps, you get access to all your data via end points. You create a content using proccesswire admin, u get the json feed, u update the content, json feed updates... You can take example of GraphQL module, just built in the core, and i would prefer REST. And as @flydev 👊🏻 mentioned, AppApi is a good example.
  4. Everything comes down to the content management needs. I personally like managing content with markdown files and front matter, but obviously not ideal solution or non-technical non-dev users. Also, theres clients that want you manage content for them, and content is rarely changed. In this case you dont really need a cms, but when you need it, this is where headless cms comes into play. And can work very well. Use headless cms to add/manage content Fetch content with SSG and build front-end with favorite generator / framework. Deploy your static site to the preferred service (github, cloudflare, netlify, vercel....). Use webhooks, or github actions to trigger rebuild when content is changed. As re-generating static site takes a bit of time, and compute, this is not ideal for all situations and needs. It depends on how frequent content is changing. If you have a directory for example, and visitors can publishing content, obviously this would not be a good solution. There's a lot of headless cms-s out there, but non of them from my experience is good as processwire. What pw is missing is is "external headless" features, REST api. Yes, we can build it our self, and can make json feeds fairly easy, but having it out of the box would be great. Im not an api or security expert, dont know implications, but from what i see most/all of the cms (especially headless) out there have this...
  5. I also still build websites traditional way, depending on the project, and needs. If I need a CMS and more advanced features, using pw, if need a more basic website, then trying to use SSG. Usually without cms, content in markdown… Just started with SSG sites, but planning to move to it as much as I can. Don’t have to keep your front-end files on the same server Easier to deploy websites (static sites, SPA). You can deploy your website to github, netlify, cloudflare pages… no server needed Easy to build multi websites with one backend Easier to collaborate via git Easier to share data between websites Tooling, preprocessor parsers, purge css, live reload etc… Easier to switch front-end entirely, eg: change front-end framework, change static site generator…
  6. I could not agree with a "small percent of users"... Front-end is moving and has moved from the "traditional" approach. But let's hope in 2022 some opinions could be changed :).
  7. They are not, but they can be used together. Static sites doesn't have to be so static, if you are using static site generators (11ty, astro, nuxt, next...), you can fetch content from the headless cms, then you can trigger re-build when content is changed, and automate the deployment. +1 for this. As processwire is in fact headless, having the REST api out of the box would be great. Take strapi as example... Imo, having REST api would be much more beneficial, then live previews for example. Saying this because there was a discussion about live previews, but also of js api... If i could vote, would always put the time into the js api...
  8. Had this before, but only with the page title field. When you switch page-title field not to be multilang it works fine...
  9. $query = $modules->get('SearchEngine')->find($input->get->q); Is it possible to get a PageArray from this? So i can render my own markup... I know i can use "search_index%=q" to find pages, but i would like to take advantage of the module settings, so dont have to hardcode the operator... I'm trying: $results = $query->results; I get "Method Query::get does not exist or is not callable in this context" When i try "renderResults()" method, it works as expected. Never mind, solved it after looking into Query class. $results = $query->getResults();
  10. Like kongondo mantioned, you can refine the selector, for example you can include grandchild template: $pages->count("template=grandchild_template_name, name_of_checkbox_field=1");
  11. $pages->count("checkbox_field_name=1"); 🙂
  12. Try to url instead of httpurl <img src="<?php echo $bild->httpUrl; ?>"> to <img src="<?php echo $bild->url; ?>">
  13. I asume you are talking about the page reference field. With "Select Options Fieldtype" you define options in field settings, while for page reference field, you use pages as options (any pages), you can select pages by template, parent page, or a custom selector etc... For the dropdown, you have to write your own markup, processwire doesn't do any automatic front-end work for you.
  14. This solved the issue. Was busting my head a lot THANK YOU @Zeka! 🙂 Just to note that u also need getPage() method in your module. class MyModule extends Process implements WirePageEditor { public function getPage() { return $this->page; } }
  15. Thanks for the tips @Zeka. Yes having same issue when creating new pages , they are inactive for all other languages. I solved this for now by checking if page is active for another language on page edit, based on language id, eg: $page->status1105 public function executeEdit() { // breadcrumb $this->fuel->breadcrumbs->add(new Breadcrumb($this->page->url, $this->page->title)); // Force activate multi-language page variations foreach($this->languages as $lng) { $id = $this->sanitizer->int($this->input->get->id); $p = $this->pages->get("id=$id"); $status_field = "status{$lng}"; if($p->{$status_field} != "" && $p->{$status_field} != 1) { $p->of(false); $p->{$status_field} = 1; $p->save(); } } // Execute Page Edit $processEdit = $this->modules->get('ProcessPageEdit'); return $processEdit->execute(); } In this case i loose ability to deactivate the page for some languages but for now i can live with it. Creating a custom add new page is also an option, /module-manager/new/, and writing a custom form for adding new pages and handle it manually. But for page edit is not so easy
