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..

best regards

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.

Hi guys, is it possible to set a menu item that points to an external url? Thank you

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".

So I finally pushed the large children branch performance fix and upped version to 1.3.5. Thanks for being patient.

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

Thanks a lot for the hints, Soma! Everything works now as expected. I misunderstood the concept of' show_root' => true,

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);

      Hi! I've created a small Inputfield module called InputfieldFloatRange which allows you to use an HTML5 <input type="range" ../> slider as an InputField. I needed something like this for a project where the client needs to be able to tweak this value more based on 'a feeling' than just entering a boring old number. Maybe more people can use this so I'm hereby releasing it into the wild.  
       
      What is it?
      The missing range slider Inputfield for Processwire. 
      What does it do?
      This module extends InputfieldFloat and allows you to use HTML5 range sliders for number fields in your templates.
      It includes a visible and editable value field, to override/tweak the value if required.  
      Features
      Min/max values Precision (number of decimals) Steps (Read more) Manual override of the selected value (will still adhere to the rules above) Usage
      Clone / zip repo Install FieldtypeFloatRange, this automatically installs the Inputfield Create new field of type `Float (range)` or convert an existing `Float`, `Integer` or `Text` field. To render the field's value simply echo `$page->field` Demo
      A field with Min=0, Max=1, Step=0.2, Precision=2

      Field with settings Min=0, Max=200, Step=0.25, Precision=2

       
      Todo
      Make the display-field's size configurable (will use the Input Size field setting)  Hopefully become redundant If it's usable for others I'll add it to the Modules list  
      Changelog
      v002
      - Fix issue where setting the step value to an empty value created problem with validation
      - Make the display-field optional 
      v001
      - Initial release
       
      Thanks!

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      Why?
      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Installation
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. Field widths entered into the Template Field Widths inputfield are only applied if the Edit Template form is submitted with the Template Field Widths inputfield in an opened state. "Collapsed" is the recommended setting if you think you might also use core inputs for setting field widths in a template context. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.

      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:
      Final ReportV6 web version for John Feb 23.PDF
