This seems to be more tricky than I initially thought it would be. Will investigate this.

Sounds like I'm going to need this module. But I have a few questions:

I'm a big fan of the XML sitemap plugin.. anyone have experiences using these two plugins together?

Are urls like http://domain/subdomain/article redirected to http://subdomain.domain/article 

if someone hovers the link does it show http://domain/subdomain/article ? or http://subdomain.domain/article ?

From memory the XML sitemap class doesn't check for multisite needs, though I seem to recall someone asking this before and maybe even posting some altered code (I might have dreamed that bit thouugh!).

Can I use and test out this module locally ie. using MAMP?

Some basic instructions would be great!

Also if I use it on a live host can I install processwire with the multisite module in a subfolder before I move it into the root?

I don't use MAMP, but what you have to basicly is this:

1) Install ProcessWire with for example the domain maindomain.localhost which points to /Arjen/Sites/maindomain.com/.

2) Make sure it's working fine and install the Multisite plugin.

3) Create an entry in your virtual host file and point that domain to the domain in step 1. For example point seconddomain.localhost to /Arjen/Sites/maindomain.com/ as well.

4) Now both maindomain.localhost and seconddomain.localhost will load the same website.

5) Follow instructions above.

I have pretty mixed feelings about this module myself. It does work (well, there is one user where it doesn't and I don't have a clue why), but all should be aware that there are many things to consider:

  • Complexity grows exponentially with each subsite you add. More templates, more fields, more pages
  • Your coding needs to be different if the site is subsite: $page->rootParent isn't actually rootParent, but the home. 
  • www.campaign-site.com/processwire/ admin isn't there, it is only at www.main-site.com/processwire/
  • Maybe not compatible with all the modules. Ie. form builder works, but you need to create new /form-builder/ page under each of your subsites.
  • Cross linking doesn't work yet. Ie. if you use get or find to find pages from other subsites, then echo $p->url() won't give the right url (this is should be actually easy fix, but not yet fixed)

If your subsite is big, I don't think using this module is good idea. For simple marketing campaign sites I think this is fine way to go, but for larger sites I would consider other approaches.

only the homepage of the subdomain works for me.

if I try go to:


nothing happens. see:



Edit: I ended up moving the subdomain back to having it's own database. It might be more hassel to admin, but simpler to ensure good SEO with two different XML sitemaps. I had a few instances where /domain/subdomain/ due to the way pages were linked.

Anyways, I'll look forward to when this module gets beefed up, or when a next gen version gets released.

I think we should consider a new module which covers some more functions. The concept of contexts in MODX for example is pretty straight forward (in theory). So I think something like this would be nice to have:

- define any desired rootParent as own context

- every context can have its own context settings (for example domain or even own alias with the same domain as the root, language, id of own 404 etc.)

- In your templates you could just refer to these settings via $context->my_setting

- the url creation has to be implemented with a hook (path::after?) so it works everywhere

- cross context linking should work (so TinyMCE has to tweaked I guess)

- fields, templates etc. can be shared between contexts (organisation via the new tag function)

- [...]

I think it is a very common use case to have several websites (domains) in one environment, so this would be awesome if we would have a module which considers all these "problems" and would work out of the box. So we could claim PW as "multi language, multi domain" without tweaking  ;)

Unfortunately this is beyond my PHP skills :-

The aims seem to be:

  • One site folder
  • One templates folder (which is where it gets messy)
  • One admin interface
  • Potential to share information across sites by calling something like $pages->context('sitename')->find('selector'); - This is the best way I can think of making it work anyway

I'm trying to do this without the time to draw a diagram, but the way I would see a new module working would be something like this:

  1. Have a single wire folder
  2. Have a /site/contexts/ folder, each site has its own folder within containing templates for that context (that way you could ignore the original templates folder)
  3. Write some API code to do something like $pages->context('sitename')->find('selector');
  4. DON'T show all the sites in one tree in the admin - no need, just have a drop-down at the top-right somewhere to switch between contexts
  5. Give them the option NOT to share the same database if desired. This then caters for marketing mini-sites to share the same DB but larger sites to be separate, as well as allowing for complete separation of templates and fields if desired (useful for creative studios with many sites)

This addresses all the requirements I think. There are a few compromises, but this ticks off the main aims I listed and doesn't over-complicate matters.

What do you guys think? MODx contexts made my brain hurt so I'm throwing this idea out as something that's hopefully simpler to setup, understand and manage :)

Other considerations are:

  1. You need some way of having single sign-on to switch between contexts (let's just call them sites hey? I'm getting confused every time I type that :D) if you use the separate databases approach
  2. Someone needs to add some functions into the API to make this work the way I described above, but I think that's possible :)
  3. Also the selectors could just be like $site->get('sitename')->pages->find('selector') but I like my first idea better :P Maybe $pages->site('sitename')->find('selector') though since I've totally gone off the term "contexts" now.
  4. Of course if you don't specify the site() part then it will default to the site that the template file is in.#
  5. And anything else you can think of...

Okay, haven't read the entire thread so I may have this completely upside down, but isn't it easier to have multiple Site folders with the first one as a default?

So, in each subsequent site it will use the templates in its own folder if they exists, if not it uses the templates from the default folder. Same for modules and admin template. There would have to be some exceptions, probably, so you didn't end up with the head from your own site1 folder and the footer from the default site folder, for instance.

But it might make deleting sites easier if it is just removing their entire site folder. Also means that they could be transferred to another installation, I would think ... somehow.

Keep the ideas coming, I like what I read ...  :)

I totally like the site/sites approach for the files with fallback to the original site folder. So one could share common templates and also create individual ones.

That is the exactly same bug that I haven't been able to solve yet. I am pretty sure it has something to do with server settings. It modifies the url fine, but still loads the homepage only. Strange. Does anyone have any clue about this? Also notice this: http://corporate.ccw-global.com/it/doesnt/throw/404/

yeah, I noticed... well since I switched back to 2 databases, that link now throws a 301 to the root :)

The sites I was thinking of using this multisite module has mainly product pages that need to be shared. So if someone updates a product PDF file it is reflected on both sites. These product pages will have body text, couple of tables of data text, images to download and PDF files. There are also other downloadable files in other areas of the site, employee contact lists and resources that would ideally be shared too.

What options do i have to share content like this if multisite is not suitable?

Simplest would be to use Ryan's web service module. It is pretty straightforward and we are here to help with it.

I have one question about method #1; Is there an easy way to keep all of the backend translation in one place (wire folder?). I have multiple sites, installed as written in method 1, which have their own (json) language files for the backend translation but they seem to be saved seperate within each site-folder. In my case this isn't necessary so I'm curious in which file to change the location where the language variables are retrieved.

The language translation files are considered part of the site's files rather than ProcessWire's core files, so they have to live in /site/assets/files/.../ rather than anywhere else. I suppose you could always make a symlink to set them up somewhere else. But I wouldn't bother with that unless it's creating an obstacle to have them the way they are.

Hi Ryan, well in this scenario (multiple sites with the same backend), it's more convenient to have them stored and maintained in one place so when we add some 'core functionality' which should be available for all sites, it would be more time consuming to update all of the different language-folders instead of just one. But I'll look into a way to use the symlink-option, thanks ;)

I would like to use this module but my PW installation produces the same error which Arjen described on the first page:

I can reach the page using the following URL:

But I can't reach the page using this URL:


I followed the step by step explanation he described but still have no success getting the module to work.

If I open subdomain1.domain.com it redirects to the correct path of the tree and renders the menu as it should. The menu contains links like subdomain1.domain.com/festival, which seems correct to me. But all those links lead to the home page of the current subdomain, so in this case subdomain1.domain.com.

I read the whole thread and learned that this module is far from perfect but I need a way to manage four subdomains which use nearly the same templates from one PW installation. There is no other convenient way except for this module, right?

I'm not really sure why it might not be working in your case, but it definitely doesn't sound right. It reminds me a bit of what one sees if they are trying to run ProcessWire without an htaccess file. What version of ProcessWire? Also, double check that those links have a trailing slash in them. The one you mentioned did not have a trailing slash, and I suspect that this module would require them.

Hi Ryan,

the links added to the module settings do not have a trailing slash. However, if i add one the module stops working since it fails to match the entry to the appropriate page on the second level.

I do have a .htaccess file but I am currently running the page in a local environment via MAMP. I am using the current ProcessWire Version 2.3.0.

I don't know why this should be an issue, but I will perhaps try to run it on my web hosting to make sure it does not have a problem with running local.

Ezeey, I experiencing the same behaviour as my previous post. Did you manage to get it up and running?

Could it be that a previous fix has been reversed? It doesn't seem so though when looking at the github history.

Unfortunately I didn't. As I thought I am having the same issues no matter if the page is running local or on my remote server.

I got it working, but it is very hackish and definately should be looked after. I will fork apeisa's code tomorrow and try to figure out why my current version does work and the latest on github won't. For now you can check if this gist works for you. It does for me. It's an old version of the module I installed on my local machine at home. Then I changed some code with the new version. I didn't fix one warning, just placed an @ before it to stop the warning.

      I have had this module sitting in a 95% complete state for a while now and have finally made the push to get it out there. Thanks to @teppo for his Hanna Code Helper module which I referred to and borrowed from during development.
      Provides a number of enhancements for working with Hanna Code tags in CKEditor. The main enhancement is that Hanna tags in a CKEditor field may be double-clicked to edit their attributes using core ProcessWire inputfields in a modal dialog.
      Requires the Hanna Code module and >= ProcessWire v3.0.0.
      Install the HannaCodeDialog module using any of the normal methods.
      For any CKEditor field where you want the "Insert Hanna tag" dropdown menu to appear in the CKEditor toolbar, visit the field settings and add "HannaDropdown" to the "CKEditor Toolbar" settings field.
      Module configuration
      Visit the module configuration screen to set any of the following:
      Exclude prefix: Hanna tags named with this prefix will not appear in the CKEditor toolbar dropdown menu for Hanna tag insertion. Exclude Hanna tags: Hanna tags selected here will not appear in the CKEditor toolbar dropdown menu for Hanna tag insertion. Background colour of tag widgets: you can customise the background colour used for Hanna tags in CKEditor if you like. Dialog width: in pixels Dialog height: in pixels Features
      Insert tag from toolbar dropdown menu
      Place the cursor in the CKEditor window where you want to insert your Hanna tag, then select the tag from the "Insert Hanna tag" dropdown.

      Advanced: if you want to control which tags appear in the dropdown on particular pages or templates you can hook HannaCodeDialog::getDropdownTags. See the forum support thread for examples .
      Edit tag attributes in modal dialog
      Insert a tag using the dropdown or double-click an existing tag in the CKEditor window to edit the tag attributes in a modal dialog.

      Tags are widgets
      Hanna tags that have been inserted in a CKEditor window are "widgets" - they have a background colour for easy identification, are protected from accidental editing, and can be moved within the text by drag-and-drop.

      Options for tag attributes may be defined
      You can define options for a tag attribute so that editors must choose an option rather than type text. This is useful for when only certain strings are valid for an attribute and also has the benefit of avoiding typos.
      Add a new attribute for the Hanna tag, named the same as the existing attribute you want to add options for, followed by "__options". The options themselves are defined as a string, using a pipe character as a delimiter between options. Example for an existing attribute named "vegetables":
      vegetables__options=Spinach|Pumpkin|Celery|Tomato|Brussels Sprout|Potato You can define a default for an attribute as normal. Use a pipe delimiter if defining multiple options as the default, for example:
      vegetables=Tomato|Potato Dynamic options
      Besides defining static options as above, you can use one Hanna tag to dynamically generate options for another. For instance, you could create a Hanna tag that generates options based on images that have been uploaded to the page, or the titles of children of the page.
      Your Hanna tag that generates the options should echo a string of options delimited by pipe characters (i.e. the same format as a static options string).
      You will probably want to name the Hanna tag that generates the options so that it starts with an underscore (or whatever prefix you have configured as the "exclude" prefix in the module config), to avoid it appearing as an insertable tag in the HannaCodeDialog dropdown menu.
      Example for an existing attribute named "image":
      image__options=[[_images_on_page]] And the code for the _images_on_page tag:
      <?php $image_names = array(); $image_fields = $page->fields->find('type=FieldtypeImage')->explode('name'); foreach($image_fields as $image_field) { $image_names = array_unique( array_merge($image_names, $page->$image_field->explode('name') ) ); } echo implode('|', $image_names); Choice of inputfield for attribute
      You can choose the inputfield that is used for an attribute in the dialog.
      For text attributes the supported inputfields are text (this is the default inputfield for text attributes so it isn't necessary to specify it if you want it) and textarea. Note: any manual line breaks inside a textarea are removed because these will break the CKEditor tag widget.
      Inputfields that support the selection of a single option are select (this is the default inputfield for attributes with options so it isn't necessary to specify it if you want it) and radios.
      Inputfields that support the selection of multiple options are selectmultiple, asmselect and checkboxes.
      You can also specify a checkbox inputfield - this is not for attributes with defined options but will limit an attribute to an integer value of 1 or 0.
      The names of the inputfield types are case-insensitive.
      Example for an existing attribute named "vegetables":
      vegetables__type=asmselect Descriptions and notes for inputfields
      You can add a description or notes to an attribute and these will be displayed in the dialog.
      Example for an existing attribute named "vegetables":
      vegetables__description=Please select vegetables for your soup. vegetables__notes=Pumpkin and celery is a delicious combination. Notes
      When creating or editing a Hanna tag you can view a basic cheatsheet outlining the HannaCodeDialog features relating to attributes below the "Attributes" config inputfield.
      Define or manipulate options in a hook
      You can hook HannaCodeDialog::prepareOptions to define or manipulate options for a Hanna tag attribute. Your Hanna tag must include a someattribute__options attribute in order for the hook to fire. The prepareOptions method receives the following arguments that can be used in your hook:
      options_string Any existing string of options you have set for the attribute attribute_name The name of the attribute the options are for tag_name The name of the Hanna tag page The page being edited If you hook after HannaCodeDialog::prepareOptions then your hook should set $event->return to an array of option values, or an associative array in the form of $value => $label.
      Build entire dialog form in a hook
      You can hook after HannaCodeDialog::buildForm to add inputfields to the dialog form. You can define options for the inputfields when you add them. Using a hook like this can be useful if you prefer to configure inputfield type/options/descriptions/notes in your IDE rather than as extra attributes in the Hanna tag settings. It's also useful if you want to use inputfield settings such as showIf.
      When you add the inputfields you must set both the name and the id of the inputfield to match the attribute name.
      You only need to set an inputfield value in the hook if you want to force the value - otherwise the current values from the tag are automatically applied.
      To use this hook you only have to define the essential attributes (the "fields" for the tag) in the Hanna Code settings and then all the other inputfield settings can be set in the hook.
      Example buildForm() hook
      The Hanna Code attributes defined for tag "meal" (a default value is defined for "vegetables"):
      vegetables=Carrot meat cooking_style comments The hook code in /site/ready.php:
      $wire->addHookAfter('HannaCodeDialog::buildForm', function(HookEvent $event) { // The Hanna tag that is being opened in the dialog $tag_name = $event->arguments(0); // Other arguments if you need them /* @var Page $edited_page */ $edited_page = $event->arguments(1); // The page open in Page Edit $current_attributes = $event->arguments(2); // The current attribute values $default_attributes = $event->arguments(3); // The default attribute values // The form rendered in the dialog /* @var InputfieldForm $form */ $form = $event->return; if($tag_name === 'meal') { $modules = $event->wire('modules'); /* @var InputfieldCheckboxes $f */ $f = $modules->InputfieldCheckboxes; $f->name = 'vegetables'; // Set name to match attribute $f->id = 'vegetables'; // Set id to match attribute $f->label = 'Vegetables'; $f->description = 'Please select some vegetables.'; $f->notes = "If you don't eat your vegetables you can't have any pudding."; $f->addOptions(['Carrot', 'Cabbage', 'Celery'], false); $form->add($f); /* @var InputfieldRadios $f */ $f = $modules->InputfieldRadios; $f->name = 'meat'; $f->id = 'meat'; $f->label = 'Meat'; $f->addOptions(['Pork', 'Beef', 'Chicken', 'Lamb'], false); $form->add($f); /* @var InputfieldSelect $f */ $f = $modules->InputfieldSelect; $f->name = 'cooking_style'; $f->id = 'cooking_style'; $f->label = 'How would you like it cooked?'; $f->addOptions(['Fried', 'Boiled', 'Baked'], false); $form->add($f); /* @var InputfieldText $f */ $f = $modules->InputfieldText; $f->name = 'comments'; $f->id = 'comments'; $f->label = 'Comments for the chef'; $f->showIf = 'cooking_style=Fried'; $form->add($f); } }); Troubleshooting
      HannaCodeDialog includes and automatically loads the third-party CKEditor plugins Line Utilities and Widget. If you have added these plugins to your CKEditor field already for some purpose and experience problems with HannaCodeDialog try deactivating those plugins from the CKEditor field settings.

      Wire Mail SMTP

      An extension to the (new) WireMail base class that uses SMTP-transport

      This module integrates EmailMessage, SMTP and SASL php-libraries from Manuel Lemos into ProcessWire. I use this continously evolved libraries for about 10 years now and there was never a reason or occasion not to do so. I use it nearly every day in my office for automated composing and sending personalized messages with attachments, requests for Disposition Notifications, etc. Also I have used it for sending personalized Bulkmails many times.

      The WireMailSmtp module extends the new email-related WireMail base class introduced in ProcessWire 2.4.1 (while this writing, the dev-branch only).
      Here are Ryans announcement.

      Current Version 0.4.2
      Changelog: https://github.com/horst-n/WireMailSmtp/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
      get it from the Modules Directory Install and Configure

      Download the module into your site/modules/ directory and install it.

      In the config page you fill in settings for the SMTP server and optionaly the (default) sender, like email address, name and signature.
      You can test the smtp settings directly there. If it says "SUCCESS! SMTP settings appear to work correctly." you are ready to start using it in templates, modules or bootstrap scripts.

      Usage Examples
      The simplest way to use it:
      $numSent = wireMail($to, $from, $subject, $textBody); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody); // or with a default sender emailaddress on config page This will send a plain text message to each recipient.
      You may also use the object oriented style:
      $mail = wireMail(); // calling an empty wireMail() returns a wireMail object $mail->to($toEmail, $toName); $mail->from = $yourEmailaddress; // if you don't have set a default sender in config // or if you want to override that $mail->subject($subject); $mail->body($textBody); $numSent = $mail->send(); Or chained, like everywhere in ProcessWire:
      $mail = wireMail(); $numSent = $mail->to($toEmail)->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); Additionaly to the basics there are more options available with WireMailSmtp. The main difference compared to the WireMail BaseClass is the sendSingle option. With it you can set only one To-Recipient but additional CC-Recipients.
      $mail = wireMail(); $mail->sendSingle(true)->to($toEmail, $toName)->cc(array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com')); $numSent = $mail->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); The same as function call with options array:
      $options = array( 'sendSingle' => true, 'cc' => array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com') ); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody, $options); There are methods to your disposal to check if you have the right WireMail-Class and if the SMTP-settings are working:
      $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { // Uups, wrong WireMail-Class: do something to inform the user and quit echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; return; } if(!$mail->testConnection()) { // Connection not working: echo "<p>Couldn't connect to the SMTP server. Please check the {$mail->className} modules config settings!</p>"; return; }  
      You can add some debug code into a template file and call a page with it:
      $to = array('me@example.com'); $subject = 'Wiremail-SMTP Test ' . date('H:i:s') . ' äöü ÄÖÜ ß'; $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; } else { $mail->from = '--INSERT YOUR SENDER ADDRESS HERE --'; // <--- !!!! $mail->to($to); $mail->subject($subject); $mail->sendSingle(true); $mail->body("Titel\n\ntext text TEXT text text\n"); $mail->bodyHTML("<h1>Titel</h1><p>text text <strong>TEXT</strong> text text</p>"); $dump = $mail->debugSend(1); } So, in short, instead of using $mail->send(), use $mail->debugSend(1) to get output on a frontend testpage.
      The output is PRE formatted and contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection, like this one:
      Following are a ...

      List of all options and features

      testConnection () - returns true on success, false on failures

      sendSingle ( true | false ) - default is false

      sendBulk ( true | false ) - default is false, Set this to true if you have lots of recipients (50+)

      to ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      cc ($recipients) - only available with mode sendSingle, one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      bcc ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      from = 'person@example.com' - emailaddress, can be set in module config (called Sender Emailaddress) but it can be overwritten here

      fromName = 'Name Surname' - optional, can be set in module config (called Sender Name) but it can be overwritten here

      priority (3) - 1 = Highest | 2 = High | 3 = Normal | 4 = Low | 5 = Lowest

      dispositionNotification () or notification () - request a Disposition Notification

      subject ($subject) - subject of the message

      body ($textBody) - use this one alone to create and send plainText emailmessages

      bodyHTML ($htmlBody) - use this to create a Multipart Alternative Emailmessage (containing a HTML-Part and a Plaintext-Part as fallback)

      addSignature ( true | false ) - the default-behave is selectable in config screen, this can be overridden here
      (only available if a signature is defined in the config screen)

      attachment ($filename, $alternativeBasename = "") - add attachment file, optionally alternative basename

      send () - send the message(s) and return number of successful sent messages

      debugSend(1) - returns and / or outputs a (pre formatted) dump that contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection. (See above the example code under ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD for further instructions!)

      getResult () - returns a dump (array) with all recipients (to, cc, bcc) and settings you have selected with the message, the message subject and body, and lists of successfull addresses and failed addresses,

      logActivity ($logmessage) - you may log success if you want

      logError ($logmessage) - you may log warnings, too. - Errors are logged automaticaly
      useSentLog (true | false) - intended for usage with e.g. third party newsletter modules - tells the send() method to make usage of the sentLog-methods - the following three sentLog methods are hookable, e.g. if you don't want log into files you may provide your own storage, or add additional functionality here

      sentLogReset ()  - starts a new LogSession - Best usage would be interactively once when setting up a new Newsletter

      sentLogGet ()  - is called automaticly within the send() method - returns an array containing all previously used emailaddresses

      sentLogAdd ($emailaddress)  - is called automaticly within the send() method

      Similar to $sanitizer->pageName() - I'm not sure if there are any advantages over that method. Included because it is one of the methods offered by EasySlugger.
      $slug = $sanitizer->slugger('Lorem Ipsum'); // Result: lorem-ipsum utf8Slugger($string, $options)
      Creates slugs from non-latin alphabets.
      $slug = $sanitizer->utf8Slugger('这个用汉语怎么说'); // Result: zhe-ge-yong-han-yu-zen-me-shuo seoSlugger($string, $options)
      Augments the string before turning it into a slug. The conversions are related to numbers, currencies, email addresses and other common symbols.
      $slug = $sanitizer->seoSlugger('The price is $5.99'); // Result: the-price-is-5-dollars-99-cents See the EasySlugger readme for some more examples.
      seoUtf8Slugger($string, $options)
      A combination of utf8Slugger() and seoSlugger().
      $slug = $sanitizer->seoUtf8Slugger('价钱是 $5.99'); // Result: jia-qian-shi-5-dollars-99-cents $options argument
      Each of the methods can take an $options array as a second argument.
      separator (string): the character that separates words in the slug. Default: - unique (bool): Determines whether a random suffix is added at the end of the slug. Default: false $slug = $sanitizer->utf8Slugger('这个用汉语怎么说', ['separator' => '_', 'unique' => true]); // Result: zhe_ge_yong_han_yu_zen_me_shuo_3ad66c4

      If you've ever needed to insert links to a large number of files within CKEditor you may have found that the standard PW link modal is a somewhat slow way to do it.
      This module provides a quicker way to insert links to files on the page being edited. You can insert a link to an individual file, or insert an unordered list of links to all files on the page with a single click.
      CKEditor Link Files
      Adds a menu to CKEditor to allow the quick insertion of links to files on the page being edited.

      Hover a menu item to see the "Description" of the corresponding file (if present). Click a menu item to insert a link to the corresponding file at the current cursor position. The filename is used as the link text. If you Alt-click a menu item the file description is used as the link text (with fallback to filename if no description entered). If text is currently selected in the editor then the selected text is used as the link text. Click "* Insert links to all files *" to insert an unordered list of links to all files on the page. Also works with the Alt-click option. Menu is built via AJAX so newly uploaded files are included in the menu without the page needing to be saved. However, descriptions are not available for newly uploaded files until the page is saved. There is an option in the module config to include files from Repeater fields in the edited page. Nested Repeater fields (files inside a Repeater inside another Repeater) are not supported. Installation
      Install the CKEditor Link Files module.
      For any CKEditor field where you want the "Insert link to file" dropdown menu to appear in the CKEditor toolbar, visit the field settings and add "LinkFilesMenu" to the "CKEditor Toolbar" settings field.

      Thanks to the great ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use a content module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      This module extends the commercial ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" by the function to duplicate repeater items from one page to another page. The condition is that the target field is the same matrix field from which the item is duplicated. This module is currently understood as proof of concept. There are a few limitations that need to be considered. The intention of the module is that this functionality is integrated into the core of RepeaterMatrix and does not require an extra module.

      What the module can do
      Duplicate a repeater item from one page to another No matter how complex the item is Full support for file and image fields Multilingual support Support of Min and Max settings Live synchronization of clipboard between multiple browser tabs. Copy an item and simply switch the browser tab to the target page and you will immediately see the past button Support of multiple RepeaterMatrix fields on one page Configurable which roles and fields are excluded Duplicated items are automatically pasted to the end of the target field and set to hidden status so that changes are not directly published Automatic clipboard update when other items are picked Automatically removes old clipboard data if it is not pasted within 6 hours Delete clipboard itself by clicking the selected item again Benefit: unbelievably fast workflow and content replication What the module can't do
      Before an item can be duplicated in its current version, the source page must be saved. This means that if you make changes to an item and copy this, the old saved state will be duplicated Dynamic loading is currently not possible. Means no AJAX. When pasting, the target page is saved completely No support for nested repeater items. Currently only first level items can be duplicated. Means a repeater field in a repeater field cannot be duplicated. Workaround: simply duplicate the parent item Dynamic reloading and adding of repeater items cannot be registered. Several interfaces and events from the core are missing. The initialization occurs only once after the page load event Changelog
