Hi all!

Is it possible to use this module on your localhost (Mamp), for testing? Where do you place te folder?

Cheers!

Of course, it doesn't matter where you place the folder as long as the user running apache has write permission. So for testing purposes, you could also place the folder inside the document root.

Your solution worked! I wil see what happens when I place the website online.

 

I found a little issue:

The download link doesn't work when the secure fieldtype is used in the user template file. 

You get this link: {your site}admin/access/users/?id=41&ftsd=document_1.pdf (-> then you go to the users list)

But when je place "edit" after users/, the download link works!: {your site}admin/access/users/edit/?id=41&ftsd=document_1.pdf

I needed a way for the files to not force download, so that admin users can quickly view a document in their browser;

i added this to the hookDownloadFile() method:

$options = [];
if($this->wire('input')->get('view')) {
   $options['forceDownload'] = false;
}

and then added options to the download:

$file->download($options); // Access check performed by this method

up in the hookRenderItem i added this:

$segments['view'] = 1;
$link = $this->wire('page')->url . '?' . http_build_query($segments);
$markup .= " | <a href='{$link}' target='_blank'><i class='fa fa-eye'></i> " . $this->_('View File') . "</a>";
$markup .= "</div>";

so now the file looks like this:

view_file.jpg.844bb9bb968564498c1847d5eb41ebc2.jpg

It would be cool to consider adding this functionality, since it can't always be assumed that the files should force download; maybe it needs to be a config option where you choose the behavior or opt in for download and/or view links...

Also, for the field to work in lister/lister pro, some additional changes needed to be made to how the links to the download are formed; this is the complete hookRenderItem method; so basically instead of referencing the page being edited, it would need to reference the $pagefile->page; then since the editUrl already has the id, you don't need to have that in the $segments array.. this works now in listers if you show a secure files field, when it renders in the list you can click on the item to download/view the file...

    public function hookRenderItem(HookEvent $event)
    {
        /** @var PagefileSecure $pagefile */
        $pagefile = $event->arguments('pagefile');
        if (!$pagefile instanceof PagefileSecure) {
            return;
        }
        $markup = $event->return;
        $markup = preg_replace("/<a class='InputfieldFileName'[^>]*>(.*)<\/a>/", "$1", $markup);
        if ($pagefile->field->get('allowDownloadInAdmin') && $pagefile->isDownloadable()) {
            $segments = array(
                //'id' => $this->wire('input')->get('id'),
                self::GET_VAR_DOWNLOAD => urlencode($pagefile->basename),
            );
            //$link = $this->wire('page')->url . '?' . http_build_query($segments);
            $link = $pagefile->page->editUrl . '&' . http_build_query($segments);
            $markup .= "<div class='FieldtypeSecureFileDownload InputfieldFileData'><a href='{$link}'><i class='fa fa-download'></i> " . $this->_('Download File') . "</a>";

            $segments['view'] = 1;
            //$link = $this->wire('page')->url . '?' . http_build_query($segments);
            $link = $pagefile->page->editUrl . '&' . http_build_query($segments);
            $markup .= " | <a href='{$link}' target='_blank'><i class='fa fa-eye'></i> " . $this->_('View File') . "</a>";
            $markup .= "</div>";
        }
        $event->return = $markup;
    }

after additional testing, i can consider forking and pull request, but wanted to run this by here on the forum first..  also haven't setup a module config to account for the showing pref (view and or download).. will possibly get to that soon..

Muchas gracias for your additions! Could you open a pull request against the "dev" branch? I would like to integrate your features :)

A little information for the observers here: The feature to view a secret file beside the forced download is now available in version 1.0.3. Thanks @Macrura!

I introduced an additional setting on field level to toggle the "View" possibility.

Cheers

Try to add PW namespace at the very top of the .module file:

<?php namespace ProcessWire;

Lots of older modules can be made PW3-compatible that way... worth a try anyway.

@pwfans

i have it running well on a large PW3 site. Did you run into some problem? I didn't need to add any namespace or do anything in particular, it just works.

hey @Wanze I stumbled into an issue after updating the module I ran into some time ago before deploying a site on a Windows 2008 server.

The issue is described there

 

And the fix there :

 

 

Each time I don't remember where the issue come from and I have to google it and re-read my thread.

Are willing to accept a PR ?

Hello, I'm trying to make this module to work but It seems that my Processwire knowledge is not enough to make it work.

I have a user profile with some pdf files that I need to be secured for every user. Only the owner can dowload his/her own files.

So, I added the custom field 'profile-contract' to the system user template, so far so good.

The secure file module is saving the files outside of the document root.

Now I have created a new template in the front end (profile.php) so users can download their files and access other information about their profile.

I have been using this:

$user->profile_name, $user->birth_date etc to access custom field data from the user template and printed to the profile.php template

The question is how can I make a link to download a secured file stored in the user system template?, in this case a custom field named $user->profile_contract in to the profile.php template

Thank you.

@Krlos You can echo a link to the external file like that (I might not understood all the issue...) :

echo $user->profile_contract->first()->filename;

 

To offer a download to your client, check this tutorial and adapt it for your needs (credit: @jmartsch) : https://jensmartsch.de/blog/simple-file-downloads-with-processwire/

      Hello for all,
      ConfigurationForm fieldtype module is one my experiment from 2016.
      Main target to build this module was to store multiple setup and configuration values in just 1 field and avoid to use 1 db table to store just single "number of items on page", or another db table to store "layout type" etc. Thanks to JSON formatted storage this module can help you to reduce number of PW native fields in project, save DB space, and reduce number of queries at front-end.
      Install and setup:
      Download (at the bottom ), unzip and install like any other PW module (site/modules/...). Create some filed using this type of field (ConfigurationForm Fieldtype) Go to field setup Input tab and drag some subfields to container area (demo). Set "Name" and other params for subfields Save and place field to templates ("Action tab") How to use it:
      In my case, I use it to store setup and configurations values, but also for contact details, small content blocks... (eg. "widgets").
      Basic usage example:
      ConfigForm fieldtype "setup" has subfields:
      "limit", type select, option values: 5, 10, 15, 20
      "sort", type select, option values: "-date", "date",  "-sort", "sort"
      // get page children (items) $limit = isset($page->setup->limit) ? $page->setup->limit : 10; $sort = isset($page->setup->sort) ? $page->setup->sort : '-sort'; $items = $page->children("limit=$limit, sort=$sort");  
      Screenshots:


       
      Notes:
      Provide option to search inside subfields Provide multilanguage inputs for text and textarea field types Provide option for different field layout per-template basis Do not place/use field type "Button" or "File input" because it won't works. Please read README file for more details and examples Module use JSON format to store values. Text and textarea field types are multilanguage compatible, but please note that main target for this module was to store setup values and small content blocks and save DB space. Search part inside JSON is still a relatively new in MySQL (>=5.77) and that's on you how and for what to use this module.
      Thanks:
      Initial point for this fieldtype was jQuery plugin FormBuiled and thanks to Kevin Chappel for this plugin.
      In field type "link" I use javascript part from @marcostoll module and thanks to him for that part.

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      Hi guys I'm relatively new to PW and just finished developing a page for a client. I was able to include all necessary functionality using the core fieldtypes but now I it seems that I need to extend them with a custom one. What I need is a simple button, that copies the absolute url (frontend not PW-backend) of the page which is currently edited to the clipboard. As this feature is only needed inside a specific template, I tend to use a custom fieldtype which provides this feature. I've been looking inside the core modules code (eg. FieldtypeCheckbox.module) but I don't really get the structure of it and how its rendered to the admin page. I also didn't find a lot of tutorials covering custom fieldtypes.
      Maybe some of you could give me some tips on how to write a basic custom fieldtype that renders a button which copies the value of
      page->httpUrl() to the clipboard using JS. Thanks!

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.
