Hi

I have a question about the "Name format for children" option for Templates. This option only shows up when i allow 1 single template under the "allowed templates" option.

The Scenario: I have a template called "activity", the activity template can have or it is allowed only to have 4 template types as children: date, cast, image and video. My Problem is that i want that only the page name of the date pages are genereated automatically with the "Name format for children". But this option is only working when i allow only 1 template as children.

How can I achieve, that  the "Name format for children" works also when its allowed more than 1 children.

Here is the Tree structure for visualization:

Maybe that can work, but haven't tested:

you can create another parent template, (as a copy from your current),  but only the template in PW backend, not with a template file!!

than you assign your current templatefile to the new template under Template Edit _> Files -> "Alternate Template File",

as children, you only assign that date template, with setting the auto name format

I think you have to experiment with it, so highly recommend to do this in a playground install, not in your current projects install !!

Not possible. But you can set automatic page name format on your PageTable field setting under tab input, and not on the parent template family settings.

That's only for none or for all templates in the pagetable field. But I guess it doesn't matter.

Thank for your answer. I tried your idea but unfortunately it hasn't worked.

I saw that option for the PageTable before, I also set it but i also need this option for the parent template. The users can create dates with the pagetable while they are creating a activity but they can also create dates with the date Lister. Is it really not possible? also not with hooks like mentioned in this thread here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/10701-automatic-page-name-using-processpageaddexecute-and-pagetable/

      Hi everyone.
      I've created 12 templates that are the same but each with an extra bit of html code. 
      The piece of code is as follows:
      <div> <div class="box-pf"> <i class="fa fa-map-pin fa-2x fa-red faa-pulse animated"></i> <a href=""> <span class="uk-text-middle"><i>Sonchus oleraceus</i> 'Grespino degli Orti'</span></b> </a> </div> </div> On the third line we read "fa-red."
      I created 12 similar templates.
      The first template has only one box with fa-red, the last template has 12 boxes with icons of 12 different colors.
      So. is there any way to have only 1 template and add, if I want and when I want, a small or big, same or different piece of html code?

      Hello! I've got a single client on Processwire and it's completely foreign to me. I've been able to find most things, but they've asked for a custom designed page with a full width header image/section, and then a body block and a right side bar below the header. They're using a landing page template, so I duplicated that, figured out how to add it in the admin, and assigned it to the page. Nothing. It doesn't change a thing.
      I feel like I'm missing something obvious. I've made sure all the fields are the same, I tried to set up the parent/child stuff though this page doesn't have a parent that I can tell (though it's under Landing Pages). If I can get the template to actually kick in, I think I can use a bit of code to check for the hero section and load it at the top. I also made a copy of the widget template and set that to load instead of the original. But again, since my main page template isn't kicking in, neither is the new widget template.
      I'd just love some tips on what to check or change to get a landing page to actually render what's in the assigned page template.
      Hopefully I've used the correct terminology here to make sense.
      Thanks!

      hi there,
      Is there a module or other solution to select a template with a preview image? Sometimes it is not that easy to describe a template.
      e.g. Template with 3 columns (image, title, content, button) or template for a slider with max. 4 pictures.
      Even if it is nice to have a description field for a template, a picture says more than thousand words could describe.
      And no, I don't think I could develop something like that. I don't even know where to start.🙄

      I have just upgraded a site from 2.7 to latest v3.
      I have run into a weird issue where a page template setting for slashUrls changes from No to Yes immediately after an ajax call, causing the second ajax call on the page to use the wrong setting.
      There is no reference to the $template->slashUrls() in any of my code.
      This happens every time I load the page, it's 100% consistent.
      I have this running on a second machine under v2.7 and no such weirdness.
      I'm lost as to why this is happening, what would cause a PW setting change for slashUrls? Anyone have any ideas?

      Hi everyone, 
      Is there a way for us to replicate the "http://mydomain.com/processwire/page/edit/?id=xxx" and change the template to match my site template? 
      I'm terribly happy with the admin / backend page edit. It covers literaly everything I want to empower my non super admin user in updating pages such as validation, repeater management, file upload. 
      I wish not to allow the users to see the backend for both security and aesthetic reasons. 
      Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
