Hook to MarkupSimpleNavigation::getTagString to alter the item:

Little more in the docs on the hook to alter the output of an item: https://github.com/somatonic/MarkupSimpleNavigation#hook-for-custom-item-string-new-in-120

If your top level pages use their own template you could easily use "xtemplates" options to render the items differently using the template you specify there.

Hey guys,

i want to limit the children of a page (id:1101) to 3 children. Can somebody help me with the hook?

selector_level2" => "limit=3" <- this would do it for all parents..

I'm not sure this needs a hook or even possible with one. 

You could use the 

'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

to use a field or a property (can be runtime) to define the selector.

See docs: https://github.com/somatonic/MarkupSimpleNavigation#added-support-for-nav_selector-propertyfield-and-selector_leveln-new-in-121

Hey @Soma

thank you. I already know that solution and i am using it for the website, 'selector' => 'navhide!=1', (it's a checkbox)

I wanted to get something dynamic when a new children is added.  The parent is the news-listing and the children are the news; you get the point.

I can live with that workaround for the moment ^-^

What do you mean? It's not the "selector" option it's the "selector_field" option, where you can define selectors dynamicly, and it's not a workaround but especially for cases like this.

You can add any field you like for the url in the item tpl.

ie: "<a href='{external_url|url}'>{title}</a>"

Create a page with an URL field "external_url".

Hi @Soma,

When I try to upgrade to the newest version of the module using https://github.com/ryancramerdesign/ProcessWireUpgrade, I get the following message for some reason.

Session: Invalid download URL specified

I've tried on several sites.  Not sure what is wrong?

Thanks for the note. I'm not sure, looks like while editing the module entry the download url got fu. There was just a number. I corrected that and it seems to work again?

Not sure how the download url field can be a number only and if you clicked download on the module page you got to page not found... :o

Hi guys,

I'm currently building a dropdown navigation to map the page tree, what schematically looks like this:

|-- Link
+-- Parent
      |-- Child
      |-- Child
      +-- Parent
            |-- Child
            |-- Child
            +-- Parent
                 |-- Child
                 |-- Child

Is it possible to repeat the triggering link of the drop-downs (which should not link to the parent page) inside the dropdowns? The parent link for each submenu should appear again at the top of each submenu.

|-- Link
+-- Parent (Trigger)
      |-- Parent
      |-- Child
      |-- Child
      +-- Parent (Trigger)
            |-- Parent
            |-- Child
            |-- Child
            +-- Parent (Trigger)
                 |-- Parent
                 |-- Child
                 |-- Child

It would be great if this could be solved with MarkupSimpleNavigation? Thank you!

Hi,

I have a tree with 3 sublevels and I'm trying to build a sidebar navigation that shows the children when there are children and the siblings when there are no children. The code below doesn't seem to work for me.... the output is alway the complete tree, on every page.

<?php

//sideBarMenuNav change items to view 
if($page->hasChildren) {  //we are on a first level parent page so show sencond level
	$entries = $page->children;
} else {   //we are on second level so show siblings to actual page
	$entries = $page->siblings;
};

$sideBarMenu = $modules->get("MarkupSimpleNavigation");
$options = array(
	'current_class' => 'current-menu-item',
	'has_children_class' => 'has_children',
	'max_levels' => 2,
	'collapsed' => false,
	'show_root' => true,
	'outer_tpl' => '<ul class="menu vertical sidebar_menu">||</ul>',
	'inner_tpl' => '<ul class="menu vertical nested">||</ul>',
	'item_tpl' => '<a href="{url}">{title}</a>',
	'item_current_tpl' => '<a href="{url}">{title}</a>',
);
echo $sideBarMenu->render($options, null, $entries );


It is the approach of mr-fan, from here:


What's wrong with my code? The contents of the variable "entries" are correct, for each page level.

Thanks!

There's no option for this. There's some jquery code I posted to do this client side.

I don't think you want to have 

'show_root' => true,

There's no root to show if you add a $entries PageArray. It's only for if you add 1 root page to the navigation options

Hi,

sorry to tell that i'm new to pw and my php-skills are low - i try to get a bootstrap 4 navbar working with MSN, and with this Code

<?php
                    
$nav = $modules->get('MarkupSimpleNavigation');

$options = array(
    'has_children_class' => 'dropdown',
    'list_tpl' => '<li%s>||</li>',
    'current_class' => 'active',
    'list_field_class' => 'nav-item',
    'max_levels' => 2,
    'item_tpl' => '<a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="{url}">{title}</a>',
    'outer_tpl' => '<ul class="navbar-nav ml-auto">||</ul>',
    'inner_tpl' => '<div class="dropdown-menu"><ul>||</ul></div>',
    'item_current_tpl' => '<a class="nav-link active" href="{url}">{title}</a>',
);


echo $nav->render($options);

i'm getting this output:

<ul class="navbar-nav ml-auto">
                    <li class="dropdown nav-item"><a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="/pw/tester/about/">About</a>
                        <div class="dropdown-menu">
                            <ul>
                                <li class="nav-item"><a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="/pw/tester/about/what/">Child page example 1</a></li>
                                <li class="nav-item"><a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="/pw/tester/about/background/">Child page example 2</a></li>
                            </ul>
                        </div>
                    </li>
                    <li class="nav-item"><a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="/pw/tester/site-map/">Site Map</a></li>
                    <li class="active nav-item"><a class="nav-link active" href="/pw/tester/hermens/">hermens</a></li>
                </ul>

My question ist now: How can i get the following code in the dropdown?!:

<div class="dropdown-menu">
<a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="/pw/tester/about/what/">Child page example 1</a>
<a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="/pw/tester/about/background/">Child page example 2</a>
</div>


So there shoudn't be the <ul>-tag and the <li>-tags in the dropdown, because bootstrap4 only uses <a>-tags in dropdowns?!

Do i need something from these options?!

'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 placeholders

 

Thanks in advance

Maybe remove the <ul></ul> from your options "inner_tpl" code then?

@Soma thanks for your helping advice, but when i delete the ul-tags in the "inner-tpl" code there's nothing in the <div class="dropdown--menu"> - here's the output

<ul class="navbar-nav ml-auto">
    <li class="dropdown nav-item"><a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="/pw/tester/about/">About</a>
        <!-- [Selector Level1: ] -->
        <div class="dropdown-menu"></div>
    </li>
    <li class="nav-item"><a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="/pw/tester/about/what/">Child page example 1</a>
        <!-- [Selector Level2: ] -->
    </li>
    <li class="nav-item"><a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="/pw/tester/about/background/">Child page example 2</a>
        <!-- [Selector Level2: ] -->
    </li>
    <li class="nav-item"><a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="/pw/tester/site-map/">Site Map</a>
        <!-- [Selector Level1: ] -->
    </li>
    <li class="active nav-item"><a class="nav-link active" href="/pw/tester/hermens/">hermens</a>
        <!-- [Selector Level1: ] -->
    </li>
</ul>

this is my call from MSN:

<?php
                    
$nav = $modules->get('MarkupSimpleNavigation');

$options = array(
    'has_children_class' => 'dropdown',
    'list_tpl' => '<li%s>||</li>',
    'current_class' => 'active',
    'list_field_class' => 'nav-item',
    'max_levels' => 2,
    'item_tpl' => '<a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="{url}">{title}</a>',
    'outer_tpl' => '<ul class="navbar-nav ml-auto">||</ul>',
    'inner_tpl' => '<div class="dropdown-menu"></div>',
    'item_current_tpl' => '<a class="nav-link active" href="{url}">{title}</a>',
    'debug' => true,
);


echo $nav->render($options);

if i insert two pipes into the     'inner_tpl' => '<div class="dropdown-menu"></div>' same result - no content in the <div class="dropdown-menu"></div>!

There must be something i don't understand!

You don't want to remove the || placeholder used to render the entries.

Edit: Ah I see, there's a problem of <li>'s inside a <div> within a UL isn't valid HTML and Browsers moves them out of the <div>. Unfortunately there's not way to render such a thing in MSN. Bootstrap is really strange... why can't they just have normal nested UL's...

Hi Soma,

i'm really tired and glad the you're with me! But there are no <li> inside a a <div>, there are only <a>-tags....

 

<div class="dropdown-menu">
<a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="/pw/tester/about/what/">Child page example 1</a>
<a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="/pw/tester/about/background/">Child page example 2</a>
</div>

if i make pipes into the     'inner_tpl' => '<div class="dropdown-menu">||</div> i get the same result. I think i try to use a non-bootstrap-navbar - but it must be possible to make a bootstrap-navbar in PW - heading forward - and good night & good luck - and thanks for your patience....

Yes, it is possible, either using MSN, your own recursive function (there's loads in the forum), or using Menu Builder. Could you point us to a link with example code? The ones I have seen have <ul> as well as the <div>. You seem to be saying that the <ul> is not required? If you are still stuck and wish to try something else, I can guide you how to build the menu using Menu Builder :).

@kongondo at first many thanks for your support-offer - i'll be back in my office on thursday and will try to get my bootstrap4-navbar with your MenuBuilder. Had a quick look at the option-array from MenuBuilder and i think i'll give it a try (or a few more ;-) ). I'm absolutly new to PW so i need to be patiently.... thanks in advance and i'll be back on thursday.....

I meant there is in the example if you remove the <ul> from the options, it would results in <ul><div><li>...</li></div></ul>, not saying bootstrap has.

I tried with a special hook to remove the <li>' on the level greater than 1. Does that work for you?

$nav = $modules->get('MarkupSimpleNavigation');

$options = array(
    'has_children_class' => 'dropdown',
    'list_tpl' => '<li%s>||</li>',
    'current_class' => 'active',
    'list_field_class' => 'nav-item',
    'max_levels' => 2,
    'item_tpl' => '<a class="nav-link gek-anim" href="{url}">{title}</a>',
    'outer_tpl' => '<ul class="navbar-nav ml-auto">||</ul>',
    'inner_tpl' => '<div class="dropdown-menu">||</div>',
    'item_current_tpl' => '<a class="nav-link active" href="{url}">{title}</a>',
);

$nav->addHookBefore("getListString", null, function($event){
    $msn = $event->object;
    if($msn->iteration > 1){ // on level 2 and greater 
        $msn->list_tpl = array("","");
    } else {
        $msn->list_tpl = array("<li%s>","</li>");
    }
});

$sidebar .= $nav->render($options);

      Cacheable Placeholders
      This module allows you to have pieces of dynamic content inside cached output. This aims to solve the common problem of having a mostly cacheable site, but with pieces of dynamic output here and there.  Consider this simple example, where you want to output a custom greeting to the current user:
      <h1>Good morning, <?= ucfirst($user->name) ?></h1> This snippet means you can't use the template cache (at least for logged-in users), because each user has a different name. Even if 99% of your output is static, you can only cache the pieces that you know won't include this personal greeting. A more common example would be CSRF tokens for HTML forms - those need to be unique by definition, so you can't cache the form wholesale.
      This module solves this problem by introducing cacheable placeholders - small placeholder tokens that get replaced during every request. The replacement is done inside a Page::render hook so it runs during every request, even if the response is served from the template cache. So you can use something like this:
      <h1>Good morning, {{{greeting}}}</h1> Replacement tokens are defined with a callback function that produces the appropriate output and added to the module through a simple hook:
      // site/ready.php wire()->addHookAfter('CachePlaceholders::getTokens', function (HookEvent $e) { $tokens = $e->return; $tokens['greeting'] = [ 'callback' => function (array $tokenData) { return ucfirst(wire('user')->name); } ]; $e->return = $tokens; }); Tokens can also include parameters that are parsed and passed to the callback function. There are more fully annotated examples and step-by-step instructions in the README on Github!
      Features
      A simple and fast token parser that calls the appropriate callback and runs automatically. Tokens may include multiple named or positional parameters, as well as multi-value parameters. A manual mode that allows you to replace tokens in custom pieces of cached content (useful if you're using the $cache API). Some built-in tokens for common use-cases: CSRF-Tokens, replacing values from superglobals and producing random hexadecimal strings. The token format is completely customizable, all delimiters can be changed to avoid collisions with existing tag parsers or template languages. Links

      This is a lightweight alternative to other newsletter & newsletter-subscription modules.
      You can find the Module in the Modules directory and on Github
      It can subscribe, update, unsubscribe & delete a user in a list in Mailchimp with MailChimp API 3.0. It does not provide any forms or validation, so you can feel free to use your own. To protect your users, it does not save any user data in logs or sends them to an admin.
      This module fits your needs if you...
      ...use Mailchimp as your newsletter / email-automation tool ...want to let users subscribe to your newsletter on your website ...want to use your own form, validation and messages (with or without the wire forms) ...don't want any personal user data saved in any way in your ProcessWire environment (cf. EU data regulation terms) ...like to subscribe, update, unsubscribe or delete users to/from different lists ...like the Mailchimp UI for creating / sending / reviewing email campaigns *I have only tested it with PHP 7.x so far, so use on owners risk
      EDIT:
      Since 0.0.4, instructions and changelog can be found in the README only. You can find it here  🙂
      If you have questions or like to contribute, just post a reply or create an issue or pr on github, thanks!

      Sorry for the convoluted title. I have a problem with Process modules that define a custom page using the page key through getModuleInfo (as demonstrated in this excellent tutorial by @bernhard). Those pages are created automatically when the module is installed. The problem is that the title of the page only gets set in the current language. That's not a problem if the current language (language of the superuser who is installing the module) is the default language; if it isn't, the Process page is missing a title in the default language. This has the very awkward effect that a user using the backend in the default language (or any other language) will see an empty entry in the setup menu:

      This screenshot comes from my Cache Control module which includes a Process page. Now I realize the description sounds obscure, but for us it's a common setup: We a multiple bilingual sites where the default language is German and the second language is English. While the clients use the CMS in German, as a developer I prefer the English interface, so whenever I install a Process module I get this problem.
      As a module author, is there a way to handle this situation? I guess it would be possible to use post-installation hooks or create the pages manually, but I very much prefer the declarative approach. The page title is already translatable (through the __ function), but of course at the time of installation there is no translation, and as far as I'm aware it's not possible to ship translations with a module so they are used automatically. Could this situation be handled better in the core? I would prefer if the module installation process would always set the title of the Process page in the default language, instead of the language of the current user.
