I have a template file following Ryan's planet.php template starter demo. The structure is

processwire/site/templates/planet.php

Inside of planet.php, I have inserted the code you have provided. When I run that page, your code just prints out exactly as is. Nothing else happens.

Is that a little more clear?

Ah you mean it shows the php code on the Website?

This is php code and you have to put it in <?php ... ?> to make it work. Sorry but this is so obvious that I didn't think of it.

@thatigibbyguy I clearly remember being like you (no PHP) and I am still quite a PHP lite-weight.

Luckily by the time I came to PW I had some PHP behind me because it meant I mostly had to only focus on PW.

But all I can say is that I am SO glad I spent some time getting the basics of PHP because it's allowed me to use PW which I've found to be the best CMS I've ever used, no contest. And using it has lead to learn more PHP due to the excellent and helpful examples in this forum.

In case it helps, these two are resources that you'll either already know of or if not may be good places to get more PHP mojo: http://phpmaster.com/ and of course http://php.net/.

Good luck!

Thanks for sharing the excellent module & the hard work!

Kindly let me know if the following is possible:

Main Menu Item

   -- Sub Menu 1

   -- Sub Menu 2

Few of  the main menu items (on the site I am doing) has no page associated with it & opens the page for the first sub menu item. Please let me know how, if this is possible.

Thanks a lot in advance.

One solution I used:

Give your main menu items that should redirect to the firt sub menu a "redirect" template.

Then in your template, simply add this code:

$children = $page->children;
if (count($children)) {
  $session->redirect($children->first()->url);
} else {
  //This page has no children to redirect... throw a 404 or do other work
  throw new Wire404Exception();
}

You could also have a template "redirect" with only a title and a page field (single page) to select any page you want to go.

Then in the code you should be able to write

array('item_tpl' => '<a href="{redirect_page|url}">{title}</a>')

So it would take the url of the referenced page in the page field if found, or if not it takes the url of the page itself. Assuming the page field is named "redirect_page".

Haven't tried but should work.

EDIT: This wasn't really working until added support for page field url in version 1.1.8.

I am trying to use an additional code for the inner items, just for pages which have a specific value in one field.

E.g. if a page has a textfield "extra_title" which is not empty the inner items should have an extra code part <span class="nav_extra_title"><span> .

Has anybody an idea how this could be solved?

It's not possible to do conditional markup generation. So you're maybe better off building you're menu with your own code. Which is quite simple.

Only workaround I see is using JS to generate it.


array('item_tpl' => '<a href="{url}" data-extratitle="{extra_title}">{title}</a>')

Then use jquery.

$('#menu a[data-extratitle!=""]').each(function(){
    $(this).prepend($("<span class='nav_extra_title'>"+$(this).data('extratitle')+"</span>"));
});

Thanks for the hint using the data attribute - i have to admit i never used it before...

In the template i am using:

array ('item_tpl' => '<a href="{url}"><span class="nav_extra_title" data-extratitle="{nav_extra_title}"><span>{nav_extra_title}</span></span>{title}</a>')

the jQuery i tried is:

$('span.nav_extra_title[data-extratitle=""]').each(function(){
	alert("hjgf");
    $(this).toggleClass("kjh");
});

The script is located in a file which is loaded in the head.inc - the alert works fine ;-) - but i don't know how to change the class "nav_extra_title" to another or maybe add a class to it. I tried so many variations but it does not work...

If your doing the opposite you better just do this:



array ('item_tpl' => '<a href="{url}"><span class="nav_extra_title">{nav_extra_title}</span>{title}</a>')

Then use this to hide empty spans

$("#menu span:empty").remove();

I'm not sure, but most commonly you execute the script before dom even loaded. So if the script is like this in the header it will never work.

A technique is to execute it after dom load.

$(document).ready(function(){

   // your code
});

Or short method

$(function(){

    // your code
});

Otherwise I don't know.

Yes, i thought the same and tried it with $(document).ready(function() already - but it did not work... or to be honest, i just thought it wouldn't work...

I just inspected the source code with Safari and did not switch to the DOM tree or verified it in CSS Edit - at last both possibilities which are described above work fine!

Thanks for your help again, Soma!

I changed my code above example: It's not needed to each them just:



$("#menu span:empty").remove();

Hi Soma,

I've read through the entine thread and documentation and most things are clear. I've got one question though:

How would you add current-parent class to a parent?

For example: I am on /services/service-1/. The menu renders as following:

Home

--Services (this is the page I would like to add another class)

----Service 1 (current, which applies a current class)

----Service 2

--About

--Contact

Offcourse I can use jQuery to do this, but I was wondering if the mighty MarkupSimpleNavigation might be able to do this.

Thanks!

Hi arjen,

the parent page will have the "has_children_class" and if it's the actual parent it will have the "parent_class", too.

So it can be styled with CSS through:

li.parent.has_children {
	color: #fff
}

I'm using this to get my navigation from a Projects page and below. It's perfect, looks exactly how I want it.

PW page tree:

- Home

-- Projects

--- Project type

---- Project

---- Project etc

Is there a way can I go about inserting a page from another part of the page tree at the top of the output?

Regards

Marty

Marty,

I think you could set the outer tpl to an empty string and add the ul-tags and your page manually:

<?php
$customPage = $pages->get('/.../');
echo "<ul>";
echo "<li><a href='{$customPage->url}'>{$customPage->title}</a></li>"; //Add your entry above all others
echo $modules->get('MarkupSimpleNavigation')->render(array('outer_tpl' => ''));
echo "</ul>";

Not tested and just an idea, maybe Soma has a better solution :)

Cheers

Edit: Damn I need to get some sleep NOW :blink:

Of course! Not enough (or maybe too much) coffee and not enough active brain cells in circulation this morning.

Thanks Wanze!

Another would be to hand the items to the outer_tpl.

$customPage = $pages->get('/.../');
$item = "<li><a href='{$customPage->url}'>{$customPage->title}</a></li>";
echo $modules->get('MarkupSimpleNavigation')->render(array('outer_tpl' => "<ul>$item||</ul>"));

      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:
