MarkupSimpleNavigation

Recommended Posts

@Soma,

What do you think about adding an option to prepend the Home page (just that single page) besides the "show_root" => true option?

The problem I'm finding with show_root is that it cancels the usefulness of using a PageArray for the root page argument.

Take this example:

$nav = $modules->get("MarkupSimpleNavigation");
$main_sections = $pages->find("parent=1, template=foo");
$nav_options = array(
	"show_root" => true
);
$menu = $nav->render($nav_options, null, $main_sections);

Here I want to use a PageArray for my menu root items rather than craft a long selector to match those pages and all children of those pages. But I also want a link to the Home page in the menu.

When I add "show_root" => true I also get every descendant of the Home page, which effectively cancels out my root pages selection.

Is there a way to add an active class to the root parent of an active child?

IE If I'm currently viewing the page called Mars in the tree below

Home

Fruit

- Apple

- Bannana

Planets

- Saturn

- Mars

Guitars

- Fender

- Les Paul

I'd like Planets to have some class.

It's normal for me to display to the user the section they are currently on.

What about leaving the outer_tpl => "||".

Then add the first ul and the first li yourself?

Do you mean the "parent" class that gets added by default to all active parents?

I have a question

can i make the first link disable ?

mzs9ov74.jpg

What do you mean by disable? Some of them seem to need links to work.

There's many approaches to archive something like outputting different markup for items.

For example the xtemplates

'xtemplates' => '', // specify one or more templates separated with a pipe | to use the xitem_tpl and xitem_current_tpl markup
'xitem_tpl' => '<a href="{url}">{title}</a>', // same as 'item_tpl' but for xtemplates pages, can be used to define placholders
'xitem_current_tpl' => '<span>{title}</span>', // same as 'item_current_tpl' but for xtemplates pages

Or a hook might do it.

Hello there,

I would like to place a weblink into the MarkupSimpleNavigation, that would open this link in a new tab (target="_blank").
Unfortunately, I did not find any solution yet.

Thanks in advance for your hints.

Best regards

Hi @Hardoman, welcome to the forum.

There are two ways you can achieve this.

1. If all the pages you want to link to with target="_blank" have the same template you can use the 'xtemplates' option. Example:

$nav = $modules->get('MarkupSimpleNavigation');
$nav_options = array(
    'xtemplates' => 'my_template',
    'xitem_tpl' => '<a target="_blank" href="{url}">{title}</a>'
);
echo $nav->render($nav_options);

Now all links to pages using my_template will have target="_blank".

2. If you need to use a different or more specific selector than just template you can use a hook.

function menuSpecialLinks(HookEvent $event) {
    $child = $event->arguments('page'); // current rendered child page
    // any logic with $child possible here
    if($child->name == 'my-page-name') {
        // set the return value of this hook to a custom string
        $event->return = "<a target='_blank' href='{$child->url}'>{$child->title}</a>";
    }
}

$nav = $modules->get('MarkupSimpleNavigation');
$nav->addHookAfter('getItemString', null, 'menuSpecialLinks');
echo $nav->render();

Hello Robin,

thanks for welcoming me and for the solution provided. Sorry for my late reply, I just tried it using the 'xtemplates' option and it worked like a charm!

Well, actually, I have another question: Is there a way to provide a 2nd menu using these options which would also collapse with the 'main-menu' into the mobile menu when the page is being resized? But I will try to read all the post in this forum at first..  :) 

Thanks once more.

@Hardoman,

It's certainly possible to have multiple menus generated by MSN on the same page. Having a desktop menu transform into a mobile menu is more about the CSS you write than MSN.

There will be many ways to skin the cat, but I often use three menus per page:

1. A single-level horizontal menu of top-level pages (show at desktop widths, hide at mobile widths)

2. A vertical sidebar menu containing descendants of the root parent (show at desktop widths, hide at mobile widths)

Example:

$nav = $modules->get("MarkupSimpleNavigation");
echo $nav->render(null, null, $page->rootParent);

3. A mobile menu that contains all pages (hide at desktop widths, show at mobile widths)

@Robin,

many thanks for your hints! I also discovered the hook to add custom classes which I added to the secondary menu. That way, I'm able to make it nicely responsive.

Have a nice evening.

I need to add custom html attributes. Is there a way to add custom attributes like data-* without replace the links template?

 

P.S.

I tested MSN with PW devns. Should be compatible. If there are no issues you could add support up to 3.0?

Hi @Soma,

I searching for an easy way to hook your module and add additional html attributes to the link elements (like "data-*"). Any suggestion how just to insert a custom string? Hook would be great. As option (changed template) would be ok too, but hook would be prefered.

Maybe you could add a customAttributes option to insert a custom string?

<!-- see the placed variable -->
<a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle" {$customAttributes}>' . $title . ' <b class="caret"></b></a>

<!-- examples -->
<a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown">' . $title . ' <b class="caret"></b></a>
<!-- or second one... -->
<a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown" data-mydata="another value">' . $title . ' <b class="caret"></b></a>

 

*UPDATE*
Same question as above, but another idea / goal *g*

 

Also an ajax / intercooler example...
String I need to inject to the link element.

<a href="/test/" ic-get-from="/test/" ic-target="#pageContent"  ic-push-url=true>Test</a>

Custom string to insert:
 

[...] ic-get-from="{$page->url}" ic-target="{$target}"  ic-push-url=true [...]

Two workarounds.

 

Modify the template item_tpl:

$opts = array(
    //'item_tpl' => "<a href='{url}' ic-get-from='{url}' ic-target='#pageContent' ic-push-url=true>{title}</a>",
);

 

Or hook MarkupSimpleNavigation::getTagsString to replace the string

    public function hook_msn_item_tpl($event) {
        $link = $event->arguments[1];
        $event->return = "<a href='{$link->url}' ic-get-from='{$link->url}' ic-target='#pageContent' ic-push-url=true>{$link->title}</a>";
    }

 

Modify item_tpl replace the default template and have to be done manually. The hook replaces the hole string and also user configuration too.

I'm facing a strange problem. I'm using the MrkupSimpleNavigation module. In the _navigation.php file when the data-toggle attribute has the "dropdown" value the menu items are unclickable on Web and Mobile. The dropdown opens on all devices but can't be clicked. When I remove the "dropdown" value everything works but on mobile the submenu doesn't open up. I searched on this forum and elsewhere but couldn't find anything. Would anyone of you experts know what is wrong.

Here's my _navigation.php code:

	
	<?php
  $treeMenu = $modules->get("MarkupSimpleNavigation"); // load the module
  $options = array(
    'parent_class' => 'parent',
    // overwrite class name for current parent levels

    'current_class' => 'current',
    // overwrite current class

    'has_children_class' => 'has_children',
    // overwrite class name for entries with children

    'levels' => true,
    // wether to output "level-1, level-2, ..." as css class in links

    'levels_prefix' => 'level-',
    // prefix string that will be used for level class

    'max_levels' => 2,
    // set the max level rendered

    'firstlast' => false,
    // puts last,first class to link items

    'collapsed' => false,
    // if you want to auto-collapse the tree you set this to true

    'show_root' => false,
    // set this to true if you want to rootPage to get prepended to the menu

    'selector' => 'template!=MediaLibrary',
    // define custom PW selector, you may sanitize values from user input

    'selector_field' => 'nav_selector',
    // string (default 'nav_selector') define custom PW selector by using a property or field on a page. Use this setting if you want to overwrite the default nav_selector

    'outer_tpl' => '<nav class="collapse navbar-collapse navbar-right" role="navigation">
                    <div class="main-menu"><ul class="nav navbar-nav">||</ul></div></nav>',
    // template string for the outer most wrapper. || will contain entries

    'inner_tpl' => '<div class="dropdown-menu"><ul>||</ul></div>',
    // template string for inner wrappers. || will contain entries

    'list_tpl' => '<li class="dropdown">||</li>',
    // template string for the items. || will contain entries, %s will replaced with class="..." string

    'list_field_class' => '', // string (default '') add custom classes to each list_tpl using tags like {field} i.e. {template} p_{id}

    'item_tpl' => '<a class="dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown" 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 class="current" href="{url}">{title}</a>',
    // template string for the active inner items.

    'xtemplates' => '',
    // specify one or more templates separated with a pipe | to use the xitem_tpl and xitem_current_tpl markup

    'xitem_tpl' => '<a href="{url}">{title}</a>',
    // same as 'item_tpl' but for xtemplates pages, can be used to define placholders

    'xitem_current_tpl' => '<span>{title}</span>',
    // same as 'item_current_tpl' but for xtemplates pages

    'date_format' => 'Y/m/d',
    // default date formatting for Datetime fields and native created/modified

    'code_formatting' => true,
    // enable or disable code indentations and newslines in markup output

    'debug' => false,
    // show some inline information about rendertime and selectors used as html comments

);

  echo $treeMenu->render($options); // render menu
 ?>

Hi Guys,

I have the following problem:

I'm working on a website with 4 Pages, of which 3 of them have subpages (like in a onepager site). now, I get all the menu-items to work, apart from the subpages, which show on a separate, rather lonely and unstyled page (css is not loading) instead of jumping to it (like when I use anchors in non-php-sites). I'm using MarkupSimpleNavigation.

I was trying to find a solution here for hours but it seems I'm missing something.

Appreciate your help.

Thanks

Assuming you are rendering your child pages in container elements with an ID matching the page name:

$nav = $modules->get('MarkupSimpleNavigation');
$nav->addHookAfter('getItemString', function(HookEvent $event) {
    $item = $event->arguments('page');
    // if the item has more than one parent then it is a subpage
    if($item->parents->count() > 1) {
        $event->return = "<a href='{$item->parent->url}#{$item->name}'>$item->title</a>";
    }
});
// define your options array if needed and render your menu

You may want to block direct access to the subpages, in which case see this thread:

Thanks Robin, but i still don't get it to work.

This is the main site (onepager without anchors, still work in progress): http://rolspace.net/hd/itenletzi/

And this is an example for one with anchors: http://rolspace.net/hd/itenletzi/hofladen/

Now, I need to use the menu on the main page and click on "lieferservice" and it should jump to ...hofladen#lieferservice

Any ideas?

The hook example I gave will work, but you need to make sure the 'if' condition matches the child pages you are rendering inside their parent page.

if($item->parent->count() > 1) {...

If this condition isn't matching your child pages (I can't tell on your site - looks like it isn't installed in the hosting root) then change it to something that does. Like, maybe they have a particular template:

if($item->template->name === 'my_template') {...

Also, it looks like your container divs are using the page title for the ID when they should use the page name:

<div id="Lieferservice" class="titelblock anchor">

...should be...

<div id="lieferservice" class="titelblock anchor">

 

Maybe it will help if you post your MarkupSimpleNavigation code.

ah, ok. it's getting there. I rewrote the IDs now and they work. what doesn't work is the "normal" links from
page to page. here's my tree, maybe that helps. I couldn't find the right "if"-statement yet...

see my tree enclosed for clarification. not sure if i had to define the main-titles as childrem of "home". can't reverse it though...

There was a typo in the hook code I posted: should have been "parents" and not "parent". This should work...

$nav = $modules->get('MarkupSimpleNavigation');
$nav->addHookAfter('getItemString', function(HookEvent $event) {
    $item = $event->arguments('page');
    // if the item has more than one parent then it is a subpage
    if($item->parents->count() > 1) {
        $event->return = "<a href='{$item->parent->url}#{$item->name}'>$item->title</a>";
    }
});
// define your options array if needed and render your menu

If not please post your MarkupSimpleNavigation code.

Try setting this as part of your $options array:

'xtemplates' => 'home',
'xitem_tpl' => '<a href="#home">HOME</a>',
'xitem_current_tpl' => '<a href="#home">HOME</a>',

By the way, you have many settings in your $options array that are identical to the defaults - these are unnecessary.

      This module allows you to automatically rename file (including image) uploads according to a configurable format
      This module lets you define as many rules as you need to determine how uploaded files will be named and you can have different rules for different pages, templates, fields, and file extensions, or one rule for all uploads. Renaming works for files uploaded via the admin interface and also via the API, including images added from remote URLs.   Github: https://github.com/adrianbj/CustomUploadNames
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-custom-upload-names/
      Renaming Rules
      The module config allows you to set an unlimited number of Rename Rules. You can define rules to specific fields, templates, pages, and file extensions. If a rule option is left blank, the rule with be applied to all fields/templates/pages/extensions. Leave Filename Format blank to prevent renaming for a specific field/template/page combo, overriding a more general rule. Rules are processed in order, so put more specific rules before more general ones. You can drag to change the order of rules as needed. The following variables can be used in the filename format: $page, $template, $field, and $file. For some of these (eg. $field->description), if they haven't been filled out and saved prior to uploading the image, renaming won't occur on upload, but will happen on page save (could be an issue if image has already been inserted into RTE/HTML field before page save). Some examples: $page->title mysite-{$template->name}-images $field->label $file->description {$page->name}-{$file->filesize}-kb prefix-[Y-m-d_H-i-s]-suffix (anything inside square brackets is is considered to be a PHP date format for the current date/time) randstring[n] (where n is the number of characters you want in the string) ### (custom number mask, eg. 001 if more than one image with same name on a page. This is an enhanced version of the automatic addition of numbers if required) If 'Rename on Save' is checked files will be renamed again each time a page is saved (admin or front-end via API). WARNING: this setting will break any direct links to the old filename, which is particularly relevant for images inserted into RTE/HTML fields. The Filename Format can be defined using plain text and PW $page variable, for example: mysite-{$page->path} You can preserve the uploaded filename for certain rules. This will allow you to set a general renaming rule for your entire site, but then add a rule for a specific page/template/field that does not rename the uploaded file. Just simply build the rule, but leave the Filename Format field empty. You can specify an optional character limit (to nearest whole word) for the length of the filename - useful if you are using $page->path, $path->name etc and have very long page names - eg. news articles, publication titles etc. NOTE - if you are using ProcessWire's webp features, be sure to use the useSrcExt because if you have jpg and png files on the same page and your rename rules result in the same name, you need to maintain the src extension so they are kept as separate files.
      $config->webpOptions = array(     'useSrcExt' => false, // Use source file extension in webp filename? (file.jpg.webp rather than file.webp) ); Acknowledgments
      The module config settings make use of code from Pete's EmailToPage module and the renaming function is based on this code from Ryan: http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3299-ability-to-define-convention-for-image-and-file-upload-names/?p=32623 (also see this post for his thoughts on file renaming and why it is the lazy way out - worth a read before deciding to use this module). 
       
       
      NOTE:
      This should not be needed on most sites, but I work with lots of sites that host PDFs and photos/vectors that are available for download and I have always renamed the files on upload because clients will often upload files with horrible meaningless filenames like:

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.56
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
