  1. hi there everybody, I'm new to Processwire and I'm trying to figure out how things can be done. First of all i'm no developer so i have some difficulties with php and coding at all. So I tried to put some sections on the home page of the website I am going to create. The point is that i'm unsure if this is the way to go. Maybe there is an easier way or something completely different. I would like to do this without any plugins or some kind of stuff. How can i limit the amount of columns if i do it this way? ( a 3 column section can have only 3 columns right? ) And Yes i did read the tutorials. How do you guys do this? For a better understanding I have included some pictures. Thank you.
  2. Hi guys, I'm trying to wrap my head around creating dynamic blocks where the end-user can add blocks on the fly on individual pages without specifying it in the templates. What approach do you guys usually do? I've tried scouring the forum for solutions but seems to get abit confusing. I've read Hanna Code, Repeater Matrix, PagesTables and seen the youtube tutorials. Not sure, where to start from. I only got very minimal knowledge of php as I came from a front-end background (html, css, js) I'm looking to define my blocks somewhere where the end-user will not be able to see. For example, a simple block container <div class='container'> <div class='container__title'> {{ $title-field }} </div> <div class='container__image'> {{ $image-field }} </div> </div> Then maybe we got a second block container <div class='container-2'> <div class='container-2__title'> {{ $title-field }} </div> <div class='container-2__image'> {{ $image-field }} </div> </div> Then the end-user can just to add these blocks into any pages on the fly and re order them according to their needs. My processwire is v3 using the UIKit3 Admin if that makes any difference Sorry if I sounded too noob.
  3. (apologies if this looks too similar to previous topic I created, seems more logical as a new topic) I'm curious if anyone here is implementing something along the lines of Drupal's block / Joomla's custom (editable) module functionality? In other words, areas that are editable in the backend, that can be placed on multiple pages without needing to re-enter the content on each page it is used. I tried to do this using a page as a block, and then field type Page (to get a page within a page), but this led to issues with rendering, and more important this creates an object $page->fieldtypePage which is exceptionally large, so I would prefer to avoid that route. My guess is those that do it, do it outside of PW with PHP. But the 'blocks' being editable and creatable by a site editor is important so I need to explore this or find a different solution (or tell the client no-can-do).
  4. Hi, I have the following simplified layout on my page: ... row1_card1 - row1_card2 - row1_card3 row2_card1 - row2_card2 - row2_card3 ... You can add as many rows and cards per row as you like. Each card has a title, text and a button whose text is the same on every card but should be editable too, just not individually. I wonder what is the best approach to do this without making it awfully complicated to setup in the admin from an editors perspective. I thought about a solution using a PageTable for the rows and a Repeater for the cards but that started to be complicated to setup even. It would be awesome if you could use the FrontpageEditing to edit these cards and even add more or add rows. How would you implement it?
  5. I'm just wondering if there a way of creating block like functionality similar to say Episerver / drupal blocks?? I guess i could treat the template as a view that loads in sever partials (kinda like blocks) ?? Any ideas on this would be great.
  6. Just starting to look into PW, and really liking the concept so far. I think this question may have been asked, possibly here or here - but maybe not quite the same issue. I'm looking for a way to do a "portal"-style block-system, but with inheritance. Drupal doesn't really do this (or doesn't do it well) and I'm not sure it's quite what was asked for in those other two threads, so let me try to explain. Basically, I want to allow the content administrator to place arbitrary blocks in, say, a left and right sidebar. These blocks could be anything from just a title and some static HTML, or something more complex like a Google Map or some kind of calendar or "social" widget. Blocks should "fall down" through the hierarchy (perhaps optionally) - meaning if you put a block on a parent page, child pages should inherit it automatically. The blocks should be prioritized, perhaps using a simple "weight" or "priority" number for sorting. The point is not to compose pages or build articles (such as is done in Concrete5, for example) - but something more along the lines of what StackBox CMS does, where content-locations ("positions" or "slots" or whatchawannacallit) can be shared... somehow ;-) Make sense? Is there a sensible (performant) way to approach this in PW? I'm thinking of one possible approach, which is to have these "blocks" actually be hidden "pages" with various templates, one for each kind of "block" or "widget" - located under a pair of hidden "left column" and "right column" pages in the hierarchy, which would determine the "block" order/priority by simply sorting them under these two parents. The page-templates can simply use the API to fetch the list of "block pages" for reach column, and render each of them in order. What I can't figure out is how you would achieve the "inheritance" effect - blocks "falling down" to subpages, based on the page-hierarchy itself. One idea that comes to mind, is to use tags - so for instance, if I tag a page with "advertising", any "block page" tagged with "advertising" would be fetched and displayed. To find inherited tags, however, I would have to actually walk up the page hierarchy and look for additional tags for which to query blocks. I suppose that would result in more overhead the deeper the page is nested - so maybe that's not a good idea? Can you think of better way (or more in tune with the "PW mindset") to approach this? Thank you for making this CMS available! I'm pretty excited about this, and I have a feeling this might be the (sane) Drupal-alternative I've been waiting for! ;-)
