  1. Hi everyone, here's the problem I'm trying to solve. I have a config area in my PW admin that is locked down for admin use. I use pages to store a bunch of settings that I'll use for my clients website. It's mostly used for visual things like colours and theming. This list could be tiny or large, depending on the sites requirements, but its great because I can store any information I want to. So the page tree could look something like this: ADMIN SETUP Home Config Aesthetics Colours Red Field: Custom Label - "Red" Field: Class name - "theme--red' Green Field: Custom Label - "Green" Field: Class name - "theme--green' Blue Field: Custom Label - "Blue" Field: Class name - "theme--blue' etc... Sizes Small Field: Custom Label - "Small" Field: Class name - "sm' Medium Field: Custom Label - "Medium" Field: Class name - "md Large Field: Custom Label - "Medium" Field: Class name - "lg" etc... Icons Target Field: Custom Label - "Hands shaking Icon" Field: Icon SVG - "[svg code]' Target Field: Custom Label - "Target icon" Field: Icon SVG - "[svg code]' Success Field: Custom Label - "Happy face icon" Field: Icon SVG - "[svg code]' etc... HOW I USE THIS I'm then able to set up page reference fields for colour, size and icons. I'll use these fields on particular pages so that my clients can select a particular colour, size or icon, or anything really. Currently, with the page reference field I can create a custom label for the options. So for something like colour I can label the field "Theme" and present a list of colours like "Red, "Green" and "Blue" using the custom page label label format of the colours page. This of course means that I can use this to do some lovely presentation on the front end of the site. With a colour selected I'll then be able to use the page reference to get the class name for that colour theme so that I can update the page's look and feel. So in my markup I'd end up with "theme--red" or "theme--green" etc. THE PROBLEM I have this all working which is great and it's really flexible for the client which they love. However, I'd love to be able to make things more visual for the client. Is there a way to be able to output more than just text in the page reference field? I might have a bunch of different blue colours, so instead of a list like so: Navy Blue Deep Blue Bright Blue Sea Blue ... it would be great to be able to output actual colour swatches, which is a lot mor visual for the client. Taking the icon selector, I would ideally like to show the actual svg that I've stored against that icon as a selectable image instead of seeing text options like: Hands shaking icon Target icon Happy face icon Just a couple of scenarios here, but as you can see there could be any number of reasons to display a more visual method of selection. ANY SOLUTIONS? I've looked at modules like FieldtypeColorPicker which could help in solving the colour issue, but it doesn't allow me to select a colour and then use a particular class name assigned to it the way I describe above. Considering the other use cases I mention above, does anyone know if anything exists already that would help me to create custom presentaion for page reference lists, or if there's anything planned? Thank you in advance for anyone who's read this far and has any words of wisdom! Dave
  2. I have a problem and I don't understand. I have a profield table with different fields and a select field. I did like it's instructed and put "value=label". But when I'm trying to output the select field with var_dump (to debug), it's indicated that the field is a string that contains the value. Why is it a string ? when I try myselectfield->value or label or title I have an error saying I'm trying to get a property on a non-object ... Anyone ?
  3. So I was tinkering around with the "select fields" field type and added it to a repeater. My thoughts were I could have a user select a field (textarea, text, etc etc) that I defined and give it a name (another field in the repeater) and create their own form on the page. To be honest, I am now a little lost with rendering the form and mailing the results as potentially the form will be unique and custom every time. The only way I know to handle the output is by going about it this way: $forms = $page->form_select_fields; foreach($forms as $form) { if($form->name === "form_input") { //output input with custom name } elseif($form->name === "form_textarea") { //output input with custom name } } Is there a better way to go about rendering the elements from the repeater? As far as the custom sending goes, I am really at a loss since it would be pretty dynamic. Has anyone used this type of approach, and if so, how did you handle this without going insane?
  4. I don't know why multiple instances (repeater_repeat_columns1, repeater_repeat_columns2, ...) of my repeater field are displayed inside Template field (see image). Is there a way to clean/reset it ?
  5. I was wondering if there's an easy way to validate if a title is a valid value for a FieldtypeOptions field. I have created a field with different status values where only a single value can be selected: 1=done 2=planned 3=error Now I am going to update the page which includes this field which works fine so far - but: I I am using any other string than the defined options it stores a blank value. To avoid this I am trying to validate the input before. Something like getAllOptionsForField > in_array() etc would work but maybe there's a build-in method I am currently missing? Long story short: how would you validate if the given string is a valid option for a field? as usual: Thanks
  6. So I have been creating an internal web app over the last couple months, and am finally on the last piece of the puzzle, customizable forms. I thought I could just create a view basic forms and use a select option to let them select the form, and my template file could just output the form based on their selection. Easy enough. However, I have since ran into a slight head scratcher. Not all the forms are the same and they might vary greatly between each other. Has anyone done something similar to this? In an ideal world, I would use form builder, but I really dont want them to have access to it. They are currently constrained to a few pages in the backend, which is why I was trying to think of a way for them to select a few fields (like from a page select), and then render the selections on the front end based on what was selected.
  7. Does anyone know how to change the title of a select options to lower case? Right now, I have 3 options: "Management, Editor, Guest" (titles are uppercase in the backend), and I would like to change them to lower case in my template as I am adding them as a class name to span tags, ie "<span class="management"></span>". I will note, that I am using $level->title (the options) in a nested foreach loop, if this changes anything. Also, I thought I could use strtolower(), but it is just being "echo'd" in the source code.
  8. hey there, i'm using processwire for the first time, so maybe it's a dumb question. but i'm trying to have an options field which values are the users of the processwire. i don't need the values to be displayed, it's just for the administration of the page. but each time a new user is created / a user is deleted the options field should be updated automatically. is something like that possible?
  9. First, I want to thank everyone who has been developing this great CMS. I really love it and I can do so much more and even learn more about coding. Now I try to create something new and very important for me, but I have a small problem with it. I am trying to make a website where users only see their own stuff or blank / redirect if not logged in. The problem is that I want to use the same template for all users, so I can't put a certain page as parent for selectable pages because the parent should always be /clients/username/categories/ (different path for every user). Input field type is Select or PageAutocomplete. User can create new categories through it. I would also like to know if there is a way to prevent users to see only what they have under their own /clients/username without making new templates for all users. I only show what I want them to see through templates but if they know the admin url then they would see all the pages and they would have access to edit all the pages which are created with certain content type. They need only access to create new content under their own "main page". This user page is created when a new user is registered and linked with field (content of the field is user id). Select is very important because every category gives special view for user. user1 -- Project 1 ---- Year -------- Things that user creates from Page 1. -- Categories ---- Things I want to use as Select List for new pages -- Project 2
  10. I thought I had it figured out, but what I coded doesnt seem to be working at all. First let me set up what I am trying to do. Each page of the site has a different background color, so I was going to use a switch statement to just change the div class in conjunction with the Select Options Fieldtype, The switch: $switchColor = $page->switchColor; switch ($switchColor) { case "brown": echo "<div class='container inner-brown'>"; break; case "blue": echo "<div class='container inner-blue'>"; break; case "red": echo "<div class='container inner-red'>"; break; default: echo "<div class='container inner-green'>"; } I also set up a Select Options field type to be used on those pages, which is set to allow only 1 selection. However, it seems that it is failing somewhere and is defaulting to the "green". Did I not "select" the selection the correct way?
  11. Hey Guys! I ran into some really strange behavior when trying to save selected Selectfieldtype values from a form to a select field in a page. I have three different dropdowns in this page, all with different values and they randomly get saved en sometimes they don't. This is my setup: Form Page: Dropdown a: Dropdown a: - - V - - - V - Dropdown b: Dropdown b: - - V - - - V - Dropdown c: Dropdown c: - -V - - - V - I have no idea what is causing this since it happens completely randomly, does anybody have any ideas? Like, would it make more sense to only use a text field on the page side to recieve the value? and if so, why? Thanks in advance Gr, Bram PS: In the screenshot you can see the three filters that pick up the dropdown values and show the entries that are equal to the filter. And you can see the dropped values in the submissions.
  12. I have a page that has a field that contains a page. How do I use the API to update a page select field in the page's page? Example: User page has field "member" which points to a member page. Member page has field "gender" which points to page for selecting gender. How do I change the page the gender points to from the user page? I've tried $user->member->gender = 123; where 123 is the new page ID. Also, $user->member->set("gender", 123); Both of these seem not to work.
  13. how can I achieve something like this: in a custom process module ? I made a Interface(form) with the Inputfields components, but i don't know how to make the asmSelect to set the values so that it looks like above. At the Moment mine InputfieldAsmSelect looks like this in my alternative Interface: Here's the code which I have so far: $field = $this->modules->get("InputfieldAsmSelect"); $field->columnWidth = 50; $field->label = __("Titel"); $field->attr("id+name",'titel'); $fieldsTitel = $this->fields->get('titel'); $options = $fieldsTitel->type->getOptions($fieldsTitel); foreach ($options as $option) { $field->addOption($option->value, $option->title); } $valArray = array(); foreach ($entryPage->titel as $value) { $valArray[] .= $value->title; } $field->value = $valArray; $form->append($field);
  14. Hi folks, I am using the Select Options module to set up up options for content within a repeater (if the image you've added wants to be full, half or quarter width) and I have setup a few options: 1=Full 2=Half 3=Quarter This all works fine in the admin end; but on the front end I am trying to determine, for each in the loop, which options was selected. I have it set up like this: <div class="col-xs-12 <?php if ($image->issue_raw_image_width === 1) : ?>col-sm-offset-1 col-sm-10<?php elseif ($image->issue_raw_image_width === 2) : ?>col-sm-6<?php elseif ($image->issue_raw_image_width === 3) : ?>col-sm-3<?php else : ?>not-working<?php endif; ?>"> However, this isn't working at all; it just echos out my test 'not-working' class. If, for each, I ask it to echo out `$image->issue_raw_image_width` then it returns the correct value. Any thoughts?
  15. Hi folks, I have a repeater set up on a page and wondered if it's possible to only return the repeater rows that have a certain 'item' selected from a dropdown select field? So, for example, on my dropdown select I have two options 1: Article and 2: Sector guide, and I can return each row of the repeater easily enough with: <?php $articles = $pages->get('/practice/publications/'); ?> <?php foreach ($articles->practice_publication as $article) : ?> <?php echo $article->practice_publication_title; ?> <?php endforeach; ?> But this will of course return all the repeater fields, whereas I need it to only return the fields which have the practice_publication_type=1, for example. I tried looking around for the answer to this but couldn't find anything. Maybe it's not possible... Cheers, R
  16. I created fieldtype "select" for template (0:=Prepared, 1:=Done) And need to make for list of pages with this template value for this fieldtype to "1" from. There are to many pages to do it manualy. How to make it?
  17. Hi folks, As the title suggests, is it possible to output the label from a select/dropdown, rather than the value? I am using this module: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-select/ and I am currently outputting the value as follows: <?php echo $project->project_location_type; ?> Thanks in advance, R
  18. I see a fieldype made by Hanni; and i have a question with multi language; there's a way to made this fieldtype to save to multiLanguage processwire 2.5.* ? The module is: https://github.com/Hani79/Processwire_FieldType_Select_Drop_Down PD: i know there's a page fieldtype; but i dont wanna use that cause the final user dont need to see a page with 30 children for 1 category dropdown. Regards,
  19. I know there are a lot of category-topics on this forum already, but I can't find a solution for my problem. I got the following page-tree: Downloads - Download 1 - Download 2 - Categories -- Category 1 -- Category 2 --- Subcategory 1 ---- Deeper Subcategory -- Category 3 So categories can be really deep. Each download is assigned to one category only. And I would like to output it in my template like this: Category 1 - Download 1 Category 2 - Subcategory 1 -- Deeper Subcategory --- Download 2 But I can't find a good selection to do so.
  20. Hi! I´m really liking ProcessWire, even though it´s a little intimidating to a complete PHP noob like me. The basics are pretty easy understand, but one function I still lack is the option to sort pages by custom fields. I looked at Ryans Scryscraper Site Profile to try to figure out how he did it for about 5 minutes before my brain exploded. I´ve also tried to search the forums without success. So if this is something that some of you PHP gurus could help me with that would be awesome. Here´s my question. Lets say I have a photos page with lots of photo pages in it which include custom fields such as resolution, camera, size etc.. How would i go about to list them by these fields? For example like this: select -option(Camera model from A-Z) -option(Camera model from Z-A) select -option(Highest resolution) -option(Lowest resolution) select -option(Highest size) -option(Lowest size) [Find] Thank you. /Jan Londén Edit: Here´s the final code. Remember this is an ugly copy/paste version from a non PHP programmer. Use at your own risk, etc.. If anyone wants to improve, make this more elegant, please do. Huge thanks to adrian who helped a lot. <?php /** * Books template * */ include("./head.inc"); $selector = ''; // For the keyword search input. Searches both title and body. if($input->get->keywords) { $value = $sanitizer->selectorValue($input->get->keywords); $selector .= "title|body%=$value, "; $summary["keywords"] = $sanitizer->entities($value); $input->whitelist('keywords', $value); } // For the book publisher select tag. Sorts alphabetically from A to Z. if($input->get->book_publisher == 'desc') { $value = $sanitizer->selectorValue($input->get->book_publisher); $selector .= "sort=book_publisher,"; $summary["book_publisher"] = $sanitizer->entities($value); $input->whitelist('book_publisher', $value); } // From Z to A. elseif($input->get->book_genre == 'asc') { $value = $sanitizer->selectorValue($input->get->book_genre); $selector .= "sort=-book_genre,"; $summary["book_genre"] = $sanitizer->entities($value); $input->whitelist('book_genre', $value); } // For the book chapters select tag. Sorts numerically from highest to lowest number of pages. if($input->get->book_chapters == 'desc') { $value = $sanitizer->selectorValue($input->get->book_chapters); $selector .= "sort=book_chapters,"; $summary["book_chapters"] = $sanitizer->entities($value); $input->whitelist('book_chapters', $value); } // From lowest to highest. elseif($input->get->book_chapters == 'asc') { $value = $sanitizer->selectorValue($input->get->book_chapters); $selector .= "sort=-book_chapters,"; $summary["book_chapters"] = $sanitizer->entities($value); $input->whitelist('book_chapters', $value); } // For the book pages select tag.

  21. Hi again, I have another dummy question about Select field use. I made the field "boardbasis" with select options: 1:=Breakfast 2:=Catered 3:=Self-catered In template I use $page->boardbasis to extract result from "boardbasis" Select field. As a result I get on page "1 or 2 or 3" (just pointed numbers). What should I do achieve as a result "Breakfast or Catered"? Thanks a lot for your assistant. Have a great weekend, a.
  22. Hi! I'm trying to find optimal solution for "cars database" site I'm currently developing. Background: Each car has variable but limited list of attributes: model, length, number of seats, color, etc - total more than 50 attributes that average consumer is interested to know. Each attribute has value, e.g. model=BMW 3er 318i, length=5.5m, number of seats=5, color=black. These attributes and their values are added in the repeater field of car page, where attributes are selected from available limited list (page select field type) while values are entered manually (text field). Repeater is used because number of required attributes vary from car to car. Problem: Depending on attribute, some value fields need to be "selectable" and some not. For example, if attribute is "color", then available through select values should be "black" and "white". Other value field should not be "selectable", e.g. "length" attribute could have any decimal value. So far, I haven't found an elegant way to make such dependency and value selection (only when it is needed) within repeater. Do you know an elegant way how to make PW work as I need? I'd like to make life of content manager (person who enters cars data into the db) a bit easier. ) Thanks for help!
  23. Sorry for this dummy question, I'm newbie for processwire. I try to make new field for search form from "drop down module" but nothing happens. Take a look: <select id='country' data-placeholder="Country" placeholder="Country" name='country'> <option value=''></option><?php foreach($country as $count){ $selected = $count == $input->whitelist->country ? " selected='selected' " : ''; echo "<option value='$count'>$count</option>";} ?> </select> What am I doing wrong? Cheers, a.
  24. this is the 2nd time i have encountered this issue; the first time i just figured i was doing it wrong; when making the options in a select list, it says: this is my list: engus:=English (US) enguk:=English (UK) french:=French italian:=Italian spanish:=Spanish greek:=Greek but for some reason this is not working...it doesn't store the value when using this kind of list. Does it only work with numbers?, or can we have the stored data be the string on the left (which could be a css class for example) and on the right be able to use a word combination that is more understandable to the user... -marc
  25. Scratching my head here. I'm trying to find a simple way for the client to be able to add options to a select tag in a form. Do I really have to use pages here? I can use a textarea - convert new lines to <li> tags but that won't cut it for <option> tags. Repeater field? If that is the best option could anyone tell me how I would output the results as <li> tags? Ideally it would be a fieldtype where each drop-down was some sort of item that I could loop in <option> tags. Thanks Edit: I've come up with this code for a repeater file and it seems to be doing the trick. <?php echo "<ul>"; foreach ($page->subject_options as $item) { echo "<li>$item->subject_option</li>"; } echo "</ul>"; ?> I would be interested though if there was a faster or 'cleaner' way of doing this.
