MarkupSimpleNavigation

Recommended Posts

Pete, i think you want to use the markup cache in PW to do simple caching to your needs.

Soma - thanks for building this module, it's the first time I have come across this in the forums and should save a fair bit of time when rapid prototyping. Good documentation too.

Yeah, my original thought was to somehow make this a checkbox config option in your module to keep things really simple, but it would only be a few minutes' work to cache it in the template anyway :) Of course, if you wanted to cache it properly, say for a day or more you'd want it to rebuild the menu and re-cache it whenever a page is saved to be on the safe side, so whilst my original idea seemed simple it's actually a bit more complicated than that ;)

Hi, thanks for this module, everything work as i wanted except that

$treeMenu = $modules->get("MarkupSimpleNavigation"); // load the module

echo $treeMenu->render();

dosnt get all the pages. It shows all pages except the root page. Am im missing something or did i misunderstand something?

Hi gottberg!

To include the root page you would pass the option "show_root" like:

echo $treeMenu->render(array( "show_root"  => true ));

Thank you! Worked like a charm! :)

I just commited an update, with improvements to simplify module code.

Originally fixing an issue with "has_children" behaviour. Which now works also with custom selector (that would ommit pages by template) and max_levels as expected. It will now only append if there really is children to be shown.

Also fixed and updated some documentation.

Thanks

Hi Soma,

Thanks for this plugin. I'm just putting it through the paces, and I noticed something related to the "has_children" behavior your mentioned above.

If you specify something like:

'selector' => 'parent!=1011'

The "has_parent" class isn't appended on the first level, but deeper than that it shows back up.

For example, there's no "has_parent" appended for 1011 for:

/
/about-us/
etc...

But it does get appended for something like:

/about-us/meet-the-staff/
etc...

Maybe I'm doing something wrong and need to set something differently in the options array, but from what I can tell this doesn't seem like the behavior you intended.

:)

renobird, can you give me more to chew? Code you use for the navigation, and the output? Feel free to send me pm if you don't want to post here.

I think you mean "has_children" because there's no "has_parent" :)

Hi Soma,

Sorry, meant "has_children". :)

<?php $treeMenu = $modules->get("MarkupSimpleNavigation");
$options = array(
  'parent_class' => 'parent', // string (default 'parent') overwrite class name for current parent levels
  'current_class' => 'current', // string (default 'current') overwrite current class
  'has_children_class' => 'parent', // string (default 'has_children') overwrite class name for entries with children
  'levels' => false, // bool (default false) wether to output "level-1, level-2, ..." as css class in links
  'levels_prefix' => 'level-', // bool (default 'level-') prefix string that will be used for level class
  'max_levels' => 3, // int (default null) set the max level rendered
  'firstlast' => true, // bool (default false) puts last,first class to link items
  'collapsed' => false, // bool (default false) if you want to auto-collapse the tree you set this to true
  'show_root' => true, // bool (default false) set this to true if you want to rootPage to get prepended to the menu
  'selector' => 'parent!=1011', // string (default '') define custom PW selector, you may sanitize values from user input
  'outer_tpl' => '<ul id="nav" class="clearfix">||</ul>', // template string for the outer most wrapper. || will contain entries
  'inner_tpl' => '<ul>||</ul>', // template string for inner wrappers. || will contain entries
  'list_tpl' => '<li%s>||</li>', // template string for the items. || will contain entries, %s will replaced with class="..." string
  'item_tpl' => '<a href="{url}">{title}</a>', // template string for the inner items. Use {anyfield} and {url}, i.e. {headline|title}, if field is of type image it will return url to image (first image if multiple)
  'item_current_tpl' => '<a href="{url}">{title}</a>' // template string for the current active inner items.
)
?>

Called like so:

<?=$treeMenu->render($options);?>

Let's say I have this nav structure (simplified):

home

portfolio
--project 1
--project 2
--project 3
--project 4
--project 5
etc...

about-us
--meet the staff
--history

services
--stuff we do
--more stuff we do

contact us

The "portfolio" page is the one I want to omit children from because it could have a lot of children, and the drop down menu gets too long.

'selector' => 'parent!=1011' corresponds to that page.

What happens now is that if I visit:

/portfolio/

There is no "has_children" appended.

But if I visit:

/portfolio/project-1

the "has_children" class shows up again.

Bah! I spotted it as soon as I posted this code.

My "parent_class" and "has_children_class" are set to the same thing. That's what is causing it to act like it's showing up again.

My apologies for the wild goose chase.

Hah! That happens regularely including myself. :D

The behavior (if set right) I think is correct. ( After all it's surely possible I missed something while testing )

So if you ommit pages by saying "parent!=1002", the page 1002 will have no "has_children" as there's no children to be rendered in the menu.

It will only append the "has_children" class to items that really have children show up in the navigation at some point, cutting of at the max_levels or if excluded by a selector. Only side effect of it I noticed recently is if you have two navigation (top, sidebar) and set the top to max_levels 1, and render the rest of the navigation on a separate call in the sidebar. The top level won't have "has_children" class appended. But I don't know if that would make sense, needed or even possible with this apporoach. :)

Thanks Soma,

Again, apologies for the false alarm.

I do have another (hopefully legitimate) question. Is there a way to optionally suppress the href attribute on top level parent items?

Meaning, if the "has_children" class is set then the href for that top level item would be set to href="#"

A lot of times I find that the parent items are just containers for the children. So if you link to them, there really isn't a need to have anything there.

There's a great Textpattern plugin (adi_menu) that has this functionality, and I've just realized how much I use it.

I would take this route...

Make the "container" pages you're saying having a template "redirect", with only a single page field "redirect_page" with pagelistSelectMultiple input

Then have the template file code:

$session->redirect($page->redirect_page->url);

or how about "redirect-to-firstchild".

$session->redirect($page->children->first()->url);

Edit:

Another option would be to use javascript to set urls of first level to "#".

I've used JS to suppress those links in the past.

I've just always wondered how it effects search engine results, since the url still actually gets displayed, so the page will get crawled.

If it's set to '#", then it's basically invisible. :)

I'll explore the redirect route, I think that would solve any issue with "dead" URL's floating around.

Thanks.

Would there be an easy way to use MarkupSimpleNavigation and maybe something like in_array()(?) to check if an ID (that will come from a GET so we must test it) was the same as one of the pages that the navigation would normally display?

I assume one initial step would be working out if I can configure the options for MarkupSimpleNavigation so it only returns the IDs of pages (no markup) and it returns all pages one would want the public to see, the same list one would have in a sitemap.xml.

I'll take a longer look at the options the very good documentation has to see how I might do this.

Update:

Progress, this


$options = array(
//      'parent_class' => '',
//      'current_class' => '',
//      'has_children_class' => '',
       'outer_tpl' => '',
       'inner_tpl' => '',
       'list_tpl' => '',
       'item_tpl' => '{id}',
       'item_current_tpl' => '',
//        'item_current' => '{title}'
);
echo $nav->render($options);

returns only the IDs (with whitespace, dunno if that matters as regards interpreting the o/p with something like in_array(). I'll see...

Glad you figured it out somehow. Yes I also thought something like this it could work getting only the ids. But this module is usually used for markup generation.

I still don't understand completely what you're trying to do though, you could try this:

$options = array(
	'outer_tpl' => '',
	'inner_tpl' => '',
	'list_tpl' => '{id} ',
	'item_tpl' => '',
	'item_current_tpl' => ''
);
$array_ids = explode(" ",trim($nav->render($options));

:D Soma, you are in good company if you don't understand what I am doing — I am sure a lot of people feel the same; I don't understand me sometimes ;)

Joking aside, I am trying to check if an ID is for a page that is normally publicly visible or not. I plan to show a short-version permanent link to each page so if someone wants to tweet about (or email easily) a page, they can refer to:

example.com/p/1987

rather than having to refer to

example.com/animals/houses/the-squirrel-house/cheeky-the-red-squirrel-eating-some-cheese

My code uses a GET to check if a visitor has typed

example.com/p/1987

and I want the code to then check that 1987 is a valid page I want to allow sending them too, if not I will 404 or just show a message etc.

Edit: I tried your code like this:

$options = array(
			'outer_tpl' => '',
			'inner_tpl' => '',
			'list_tpl' => '{id} ',
			'item_tpl' => '',
			'item_current_tpl' => ''
);
$array_ids = explode(" ",trim($nav->render($options)));
echo $nav->render($options);

but it looks like list_tpl' => '{id} ' results in {id} {id} {id} {id} {id} {id} {id} etc being output rather than the actual ID numbers — but thank you for the clues I will keep working on it and if I solve this, repost here.

Edit 2: I typo'd, your code works (of course ;)) — thanks again for the help!

If I finish this functionality off I'd like to see if I can make it into a Module(!), but I don't want to get too excited yet, it's not even working ;)

Ah so you're trying to have an id permalink to pages (shortcut). I'm not sure if this woud help but this is how I would solve it.

Normally you would setup your tree to have pages that will be in the navigation, and set pages not in navigation to hidden. From there it would just be a simple check to see if the page (id) requested is not hidden.

if(!$pages->get($id)->isHidden()) $session->redirect($pages->get($id)->url);
else $session->redirect($pages->get($config->http404PageID)->url);

Or you could add a field (checkbox) "not_permalink", and give that to templates you need. You could use it for single pages, or just the parent of a branch. So all children pages will either be shown or not.

if(!$pages->get($id)->parents->has("not_permalink=1") || $pages->get($id)->not_permalink == 0)  $session->redirect($pages->get($id)->url);
else $session->redirect($pages->get($config->http404PageID)->url);

It depend a lot how you setup you page tree and how you make them appear in your navigation, but I'm sure you'll find a very simple solution. I think it can be as simple as a 2 line code and no module would be required.

WoW! Thanks Soma, I thought it should be easy with the power of PWs API but my limited and the fun of trying other ways meant I was OK to try other routes such as re-purposing your cool module. Thanks again, I will try out your code here and see what I get!

OK, thanks to that code [soma, thank you] without (yet) resorting to using the "not-permalink" option (which may be the way I have to go) the only pages I seem to have problems with are ones where when I try some IDs at random (to see if I can 'break' the system) result in a URL like this and a login prompt:

http://example.com.site/pw/repeaters/for-field-107/for-page-1188/

I'm now looking to see if there is an API way to detect if an ID is 'as a result of a repeater' or 'normal' (if that even makes sense).

Since repeaters (pages) are in the admin section hidden. You could exlude them by id of the admin page.

$p = $pages->get($id);

if($p->isHidden() || $p->rootParent->id == 2)  $session->redirect($pages->get($config->http404PageID)->url) 
   else $session->redirect($p->url);;

I think if you want to exlude other branches you could try something like this.

$p = $pages->get($id);
if($p->isHidden() || $p->is("has_parent=2|10|1033")) $session->redirect($pages->get($config->http404PageID)->url);
   else $session->redirect($p->url);

NOt really tested but let me know if it doesn't work out.

Allen; judging from a couple of recent threads i scanned your quite hung up on providing some short/perm link functions. Ofcourse, everyone has their own requirements for certain projects but i don't see the real benefit. Twitter auto-shortens links or use bit.ly or such services. In mail, where there's no 140 lmit i would rather have descriptive url than some id based url.

@SiNNuT you're right, I certainly am trying to solve this, but I'm not hung up on it ;) just interested in finding the answer. And I agree with you about Twitter and that perhaps this is less important now:

Now Twitter self-shortens links <- insert debate if that's good here -> what I am trying to do is perhaps less important, but I like the idea of being able to refer to a page with an alternate, ultra-short, permanent URL.

But often I will still stick to using plain-text (not HTML) email and sometimes I want a short way to refer to a URL in an email. Although this may be an edge case it's enough to make me want to explore if I can do this easily with PW.

Added to that, solving a challenge like this is not only valuable for the resulting functionality, but also it makes me learn, and as I need all the learning I can get (being a bit weak at PHP and API/jQuery style constructions) I kept trying to solve this one.

I just hope one or more of the posts in the thread end up helping someone else, either directly or in some way I had not envisaged.

And thanks for your comments about bit.ly etc, I ended up choosing the Google shortener extension in Chrome a while back after that outage from one of the shortening services. And yes, wherever appropriate I think using full URLs is the best way to go. Cheers!

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      Advantages
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no Javascript or image required.
      Disadvantages
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode.

      Detailed records
      View mode "Detailed records" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records.

      Cached visitor records
      View modes other than "Detailed records" are cached visitor counts which will be collected on a daily basis from the detailed records. This procedure ensures a faster display even with a large number of data records. Another advantage is that the detailed records can be deleted while the cache remains. The cache can be updated manually or automatically in a specified time period. Multiple visits from the same IP address on the same day are counted as a single visitor.

      Upgrade from older versions
      Cached visitor counts is new in version 1.0.8. If you just upgraded from an older version you might expire a delay or even an error 500 if you display cached visitor counts. The reason for this is that the cache has to be created from the records. This can take longer if your database contains many records. Sometimes it might hit the maximally execution time. Don't worry about that and keep reloading the page until the cache is completely created.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).

      Settings
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      IP2Location
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      Dragscroll
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
    • By Mike Rockett
      TextformatterTypographer
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.
    • By robert
      I often had the need for an overview of all used fields and their contents for a specific page/template while developing new websites without switching to the backend, so I made a small module which lists all the needed information in a readable manner (at least for me):
      Debug Page Fields
      https://github.com/robertweiss/ProcessDebugPageFields
      It adds two new properties to all pages:
      $page->debugFieldValues – returns an object with all (sub-)fields, their labels, fieldtypes and values $page->debugFieldTypes – returns an object with all fieldtypes and their corresponding fields // List all values of a pages $page->debugFieldValues // List a specific field $page->debugFieldValues->fieldname // List all used fieldtypes of a page $page->debugFieldTypes I recommend using it in combination with Tracy Debugger, Ray, Xdebug etc. as it returns an object and is only meant for developing/debugging uses. 
      For now, the fieldtype support includes mostly fieldtypes I use in my projects, but can easily be extended by adding a new FieldtypeFIELDNAME method to the module. I use it with five different client installations (all PW 3.0.*), but of course there might be some (or more) field configurations which are not covered correctly yet.
      Supported fieldtypes
      Button Checkbox Color Combo Datetime Email FieldsetPage * File FontIconPicker Functional Image ImageReference MapMarker Multiplier Mystique Options Page PageIDs PageTitle Radio Repeater * RepeaterMatrix * RockAwesome SeoMaestro Table Text Textarea Textareas Toggle URL * The fields with complete subfield-support also list their corresponding subfields.
      Installation
      Download the zip file at Github or clone the repo into your site/modules directory. If you downloaded the zip file, extract it in your sites/modules directory. In your admin, go to Modules > Refresh, then Modules > New, then click on the Install button for this module. As this is my first ›public‹ module, I hope I did not miss any important things to mention here.

      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 0.6.0
      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; }  
      A MORE ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD!
      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

      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

      Food Allergens Module
      A simple List of Food Allergens
      My needs were to provide a simple list of food allergens for our clients with restaurant related activity.
      The idea was to simply output the list (to speed up the data entry) without leaving the food menu editing, eg. opening another page in new tab or window.
      This isn't a perfect solution, but it works fine for my needs and I decided to share the base idea.
      This could also be easily used to show little notes or short "vademecum", not only for the list of food allergens.
      ---
      Main features
      The basis
      All moves from a short editing of the module in this tutorial: How to create custom admin pages by @bernhard
      First of all it creates an empty admin page, with a dedicated permission to let safe-user to see it (this permission has to be created as a new ones, manually or by the module).
      Once the page is created, I have hooked its behaviour into the ready.php, to show the content (basically a list).
      A step further
      With the tips of  @bernhard, @Soma (and many others), see here , the magic happens. 
      The new page will be shown as a panel, so editors will not abandon their data entry to have a quick view to the list.
      A little further
      Why scroll to the top of the page to click a link?
      The next step was to create a sticky button only in the food menu pages.
      Again with a @bernhard tip I moved into the customization of this simple module and the related hook.
      ---
      How to use this module
      After installed, it creates the page /admin/page/allergens/ and the module is to be setted up. The first field is a CKEditor with multi-language. This is the place where to write the informations that will be shown into the page. The next field is a simply text-area where to place a bit of JS that will be appended to the markup of the text (omit the 'script' tags). I also putted a checkbox with a silly statement: this to think at least twice on the safety of the written JS. Now comes the first way to display the link to the page
      Field Note with Link. Enable and save it. The module will display a new row with 4 selects (1 standard and 3 ASM):
      View mode (to show the page as Panel or as Modal PopUp); Templates to select: select one or more and save before proceed, so the  asm-select of the pages will be populated showing all the pages of the selected templates. Pages to select: also here select at least one and save before proceed to populate the asm-select for fields only with the ones that belong to the selected pages. Select the fields where to place the note and save again. That's all: now you will find into the notes of the selected fields the link "See the List of Allergens".
      At the same way, the option for the sticky button, but with a plus
      The field select is obviously unnecessary, but you could play with the last row: the inline styles to fix your sticky button where you like. Here you could set the sticky position of the <div> and the absolute ones of the <a>.

      Video Explanation
      In these screencasts you could see a custom JS that show a "copy" button near a "hanna-code" call.
      This because I've set a specific one for each allergen to show up a tooltip in the front end.

      Last but not the least
      Actually it works fine for my needs, even if it's much improvable: I'm working on the permissions creation, the uninstall section, a separate configs and defaults and how to include the hook into the module leaving free the ready.php. According to a simpler uninstall. Also I would make the link text as a dynamic text field, so it will be more flexible.
      I always learn a lot here, so I would share my code for whom it could be interested.
      I removed the hanna code references, but I provide you the html list of the allergens, English and Italian too, so you can paste them into the "source" of the CKEditor field to have a ready to use module.
      Obviously you are free to modify the code as per your needs.
      Please, keep in mind that I'm not a pro coder and I beg your pardon for my verbosity (speaking and coding). 😉
      I hope be helpful or for inspiration.
