Still some work needed, but I just pushed the whole new version to GH and renamed it as MarkupCookieConsent.
https://github.com/CanRau/MarkupCookieConsent/ (beta)
It's now doing everything on it's own, means there are no externals involved.

EDIT 1: Added screenshot to repo

  • Okay, I would say anything works (at least in Chrome on Mac) except the translatable config fields. Both themes are ready having each 2 available positions (top/bottom).
  • Extended screenshots to show all 4 versions
  • Added readme
  • Added to module directory http://modules.processwire.com/modules/markup-cookie-consent/

EDIT 3: Lanaguage fields will work using this patch from Ryan, or you can just wait for the next PW devns release (probably on friday)


  • 0.0.9 - Changed style injection, now prepends to first <link> in head makes it easier to add custom css tweaks without the need for !important because of the cascading order
  • 0.1.1Fixed issue with cookie not being set, two strings wouldn't recognize translation, default cookie expire now 1 year, updated readme
  • 0.1.2 - Added minified CSS & JS
  • 0.1.3 - don't remember what changed in this version
  • 0.1.4 - cookie bar now fully translatable, added devns branch which is meant to be used with PW 3.x devns as it adds namespaces
  • 0.1.5 - fixed issue on single language installations

Still have to test some things. For example, you can now select a page from your tree as policy page using InputfieldPageListSelect instead of entering the url, so now the link should work with multiple languages, too. Though I haven't exactly tested it yet!
The language fields draw my attention. They look nice but only default language is saving at the moment.
So this is how I build the config fields using MarkupCookieConsent.config.php file
I kept only settings for one field..

public function getDefaults() {
    return array(
    'messageText' => __("This website uses cookies to ensure you get the best experience on our website"),
public function __construct() {
                'type' => 'text',
                'name' => 'messageText',
                'label' => __('The message shown by the plugin'),
                'useLanguages' => true,
                'columnWidth' => 70

I'm not sure if/how I need to define default values for languages, too? I checked some other modules from Ryan but there he still uses the config field building ways getConfigInputfields() for example, so those are not really applicable, are they?
So visually everything looks good, even when inspecting the fields the field names seem to be alright..
Or is this approach not yet multi lang capable?
Everything else should work already. Ah except for the Default settings button at the bottom. It's more like to-do list for myself ;-)
Ah and regarding "dependencies". When "Enable Ajax" checked, the form will be submitting using ajax (magic! haha), anyway..just to let you know it's using plain vanilla js so no jquery or anything else needed. Although it should work well, it's only tested in newest Chrome on Mac and the script is not handling errors. It's actually removing the cookie information right after the click and then making the request. So worst case would be, considering any error, the message popping up again even so the user thinks he already agreed...
I figured it's probably not the kind of module which many will use, cause when you're a little into PW you now how to easily include such an information yourself. But for me it's especially practicing PHP..
So I would really love to get some hint on the language fields :)

Side note: For everyone interested in disabling cookies at all to avoid every possible need for this plugin checkout out this blog post from Ryan http://processwire.com/blog/posts/multi-instance-pw3/#more-session-control

I think your language question is around sites displayed in multiple languages (multi language fields etc) rather than translating the module itself into other languages? If so then that is a little tricky I guess - you'd need to iterate the languages and store a message for each language - this code may help: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/4383-how-to-set-language-active-via-api/?p=42956

Please feel free to submit it to the modules directory as it is though - it'll give it better visibility and possibly more feedback :)

Your right BernhardB! Got a little stuck with the code, so making screenshot and readme felt a little wrong..but it would make the post a little more attractive I guess.
Now we're having a little selfmade chocolate snack and afterwards I'm preparing something ;-)

Thank you Pete, but it's actually the opposite (or your "rather than.." part ;)), means I want the module config fields to be translatable on the config screen.

EDIT: couldn't let you guys wait any longer so I quickly added a screenshot to the repo. More is coming soon.

Erm... But your screenshot shows what I meant? The "rather than" bit I mentioned is translating the module instructions not the output message.

Either way, it's all good, and would actually be something that could be added to other modules as well - nice work.

-.-  haha

yeah it looks nice..but actually only the default languages fields are getting saved..so I don't know what I need to do to have it save all..

Thank you :)

And as I said, I need to test a little more, for example I don't know what it does when in single language environment. Maybe I need to make 'useLanguages' conditional..

Haven't testet privacy policy page settings yet. But after lunch I'll go and check it all out..than maybe add to module directory.

Thanks for your work, Can, works fine! 

Would mention, that we (fortunately) don't need to show this info-panel for data which is relevant for the website (if I read the EU law correctly).

Otherwise, it would be very annoying to see these info-panels on every 2nd website ;-)

They (EU) say, that websites with necessary cookies (like for shops or some kind of forms, etc.) don't need to show this hint-panel to users.

You need it only, if you kinds of user tracking or advertising across a network.

Additionally, Google 2015 have made the oblication to show this cookie-hint to users, if they use AdSense.

See: https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/6245892?hl=en

Sorry but I still don't get you exactly?

You whant to be able to enable the hint only on selected pages via module config?

As far as I understand you need this information always when you use cookies for whatever reason..but maybe I'm wrong?

And the module inserts this info only as long as the user didn't accept it. After accepting the message won't show up again..

If a cookie consent is really needed is a questions for lawyers, but I've also read that the law should (at least in theory) only be applicable to cookies, which are not critical to the websites functioning (login/carts). Anyway, I'd say that's not the topic to further discuss here.

bumped version -> 0.0.9

Changed style injection, now prepends to first <link> in head makes it easier to add custom css tweaks without the need for !important because of the cascading order

Still need to get the language fields to work  O0

Hi Can

works nice and translation in default language works also (except 2 strings).

Additional you can make line 54, 55, 66, 67 translateable.

Line 98 and 217 is not working.

When using single quotes, it works but without the newline \n

Just realized that the first post links to the old deprecated version..maybe I should delete it altogether..

Don't really know to what lines you refer?

Line 54  https://github.com/CanRau/MarkupCookieConsent/blob/master/MarkupCookieConsent.module#L54 is the hook..

Normally everything should be translatable via module config, but for whatever reason I still don't get it workin..

Kay those 4 are now translatable (already pushed to gh)

But I hav to investigate a little further why they not properly work..got another project to finish first..

But any hint is always welcome ;-)

PS: Actually I planned to include a german translation file in the repo in the first place, but never made it  :'(

I've made a first translation file for german: GitHub

All strings are translatable, but

line 98 ist not working:

'notes' => sprintf(__("For example Font Awesome checkmark icon e.g. %s\n(You need to include Font Awesome on your own)"), "<i class='fa fa-check'></i>"),

with single quotes it works, but without the newline \n.

Maybe don't use the \n? Or delete part of string "(You need to include Font Awesome on your own)", because Font Awesome is already included in PW.

same problem with line 217:

'notes' => __("Default true\nIt has been suggested that this setting can effectively help to reduce identity theft through XSS attacks"),

Thanks to Ryan the language fields on MarkupCookieconsents option work with this patch for devns.

So either apply yourself (like I did) or wait for the next release, probably coming on friday.


You only need to update ProcessModule.module from the linked GitHub page, the other fix is as mentioned in the title not needed for the language fields to work.

good question but no

may I ask why?

maybe check out those



First I thought I need to provide the possibility to the users to disable cookies..but now I figured soo many pages depend on cookies, and the cookie law seems more about unnecessary data about the user..but as stated in the second thread by Ryan you could use ProCache or own implementation to bypass "everything" (php, mysql) so no cookies will be set..

I've this problem with that site: cookie isn't created.

All other cookie are created but not this.

Production site (linked) now use ProCache so it is right.

But dev site with ProCache disabled has the same problem. 

It works for a while.

      Hello community!

      I want to share a new module I've been working on that I think could be a big boost for multi-language ProcessWire sites.

      Some background, I was looking for a way for our company website to be efficiently translated as working with human translators was pretty laborious and a lack of updating content created a divergence between languages. I, and several other devs here, have talked about translation integrations and have recognized the power that DeepL has. DeepL is an AI deep learning powered service that delivers translation quality beyond any automated service available. After access to the API was opened up to the US, I built Fluency, a DeepL translation integration for ProcessWire.
      Fluency brings automated translation to every multi-language field in the admin, and also provides a translation tool allowing the user to translate their text to any language without it being inside a template's field. With Fluency you can:
      Translate any plain textarea or text input Translate any CKEditor content (yes, with markup) Translate page names for fully localized URLs on every page Translate your in-template translation function wrapped strings Translate modules Fluency is free, and now so is DeepL
      Since this module was first built DeepL has introduced free Developer accounts that allow anyone to start using Fluency at zero cost and beginning with the version 0.3.0 release Fluency now supports free DeepL accounts. As of June 2021 DeepL supports translation to 26 languages and continues to offer more!
      Installation and usage is completely plug and play. Whether you're building a new multi-language site, need to update a site to multi-language, or simply want to stop manually translating a site and make any language a one-click deal, it could not be easier to do it. Fluency works by having you match the languages configured in ProcessWIre to DeepL's. You can have your site translating to any or all of the languages DeepL translates to in minutes (quite literally).
      Let's break out the screenshots...
      When the default language tab is shown, a message is displayed to let users know that translation is available. Clicking on each tab shows a link that says "Translate from English". Clicking it shows an animated overlay with the word "Translating..." cycling through each language and a light gradient shift. Have a CKEditor field? All good. Fluency will translated it and use DeepL's ability to translate text within HTML tags. CKEditor fields can be translated as easily and accurately as text/textarea fields.

      Repeaters and AJAX created fields also have translation enabled thanks to a JavaScript MutationObserver that searches for multi-language fields and adds translation as they're inserted into the DOM. If there's a multi-language field on the page, it will have translation added.

      Same goes for image description fields. Multi-language SEO friendly images are good to go.

      Creating a new page from one of your templates? Translate your title, and also translate your page name for native language URLs. (Not available for Russian, Chinese, or Japanese languages due to URL limitations). These can be changed in the "Settings" tab for any page as well so whether you're translating new pages or existing pages, you control the URLs everywhere.

      Language configuration pages are no different. Translate the names of your languages and search for both Site Translation Files (including all of your modules)

      Translate all of the static text in your templates as well. Notice that the placeholders are retained. DeepL is pretty good at recognizing and keeping non-translatable strings like that. If it is changed, it's easy to fix manually.

      Fluency adds a "Translate" item to the CMS header. When clicked this opens up a modal with a full translation tool that lets the user translate any language to any language. No need to leave the admin if you need to translate content from a secondary language back to the default ProcessWire language. There is also a button to get the current API usage statistics. DeepL account owners can set billing limitations via character count to control costs. This may help larger sites or sites being retrofitted keep an eye on their usage. Fluency can be used by users having roles given the fluency-translate permission.

      It couldn't be easier to add Fluency to your new or existing website. Simply add your API key and you're shown what languages are currently available for translation from/to as provided by DeepL. This list and all configuration options are taken live from the API so when DeepL releases new languages you can add them to your site without any work. No module updates, just an easy configuration. Just match the language you configured in ProcessWire to the DeepL language you want it to be associated with and you're done. Fluency also allows you to create a list of words/phrases that will not be translated which can prevent items such as brands and company names from being translated when they shouldn't

      No "translate page" - Translating multiple fields can be done by clicking multiple translation links on multiple fields at once but engineering a "one click page translate" is not feasible from a user experience standpoint. The time it takes to translate one field can be a second or two, but cumulatively that may take much longer (CKEditor fields are slower than plain text fields). There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't currently on the roadmap. No "translate site" - Same thing goes for translating an entire website at once. It would be great, but it would be a very intense process and take a very (very) long time. There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't on the roadmap. No current support for Inline CKEditor fields - Handling for CKEditor on-demand hasn't been implemented yet, this is planned for a future release though and can be done. I just forgot about it because I've never really used that feature personally.. Alpha release - This module is in alpha. Releases should be stable and usable, but there may be edge case issues. Test the module thoroughly and please report any bugs via a Github issue on the repository or respond here. Please note that the browser plugin for Grammarly conflicts with Fluency (as it does with many web applications). To address this issue it is recommended that you disable Grammarly when using Fluency, or open the admin to edit pages in a private window where Grammarly may not be loaded. This is an issue that may not have a resolution as creating a workaround may not be possible. If you have insight as to how this may be solved please visit the Github page and file a bugfix ticket.
      ProcessWire  3.0+ UIKit Admin Theme That's Fluency in a nutshell. A core effort in this module is to create it so that there is nothing DeepL related hard-coded in that would require updating it when DeepL offers new languages. I would like this to be a future-friendly module that doesn't require developer work to keep it up-to-date.
      The Module Is Free
      This is my first real module and I want to give it back to the community as thanks. This is the best CMS I've worked with (thank you Ryan & contributors) and a great community (thank you dear reader).
      DeepL Developer Accounts
      In addition to paid Pro Developer accounts, DeepL now offers no-cost free accounts. Now all ProcessWire developers and users can use Fluency at no cost.
      Learn more about free and paid accounts by visiting the DeepL website. Sign up for a Developer account, get an API key, and start using Fluency today.

      (once again I was surprised to see a work of mine pop up in the newsletter, this time without even listing the module on PW modules website 😅. Thx @teppo !)
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      This is a simple module I made so a client could quickly grab a QR Code of the page's url in the admin.
      There's not much to it for now, but if need be you can output anything using a hook:
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) You can also output the QR code on your front-end by calling the field:
      echo $page->qr_code_field; The module uses the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase. When looking for a way to generate a QR Code in PW I came across @ryan's integration in his TFA module. I'm not very familiar with fieldtype/inputfield module development so I blindly followed @bernhard (great) tutorial and his BaseFieldtypeRuntime. At some point I'll take a deeper look to make a module on my own.
      Some ideas for improvements :
      add the ability to choose what to ouput : page's url / editUrl / file(s) / image(s) / ... allow to output multiple QR codes ?
    • By Chris Bennett
      Inspired by @bernhard's excellent work on the new customisable LESS CSS getting rolled into the core soon, I thought I would offer up the module for beta testing, if it is of interest to anyone.

      It takes a different approach to admin styling, basically using the Cascade part of CSS to over-ride default UiKit values.
      Values are stored in ModuleConfig Module creates a separate AdminThemeTweaker Folder at root, so it can link to AdminThemeTweaker.php as CSS AdminThemeTweaker.php reads the module values, constructs the CSS variables then includes the CSS framework Can be switched on and off with a click. Uninstall removes everything, thanks to bernhard's wonderful remove dir & contents function.
      It won't touch your core. It won't care if stuff is upgraded. You won't need to compile anything and you don't need to touch CSS unless you want to.

      It won't do much at all apart from read some values from your module config, work out the right CSS variables to use (auto contrast based on selected backgrounds) and throw it on your screen.
      You can configure a lot of stuff, leave it as it comes (dark and curvy), change two main colors (background and content background) or delve deep to configure custom margins, height of mastheads, and all manner of silly stuff I never use.

      Have been developing it for somewhere around 2 years now. It has been (and will continue to be) constantly tweaked over that time, as I click on something and find something else to do.
      That said, it is pretty solid and has been in constant use as my sole Admin styling option for all of those 2 years.

      If nothing else, it would be great if it can provide any assistance to @bernhard or other contributor's who may be looking to solve some of the quirkier UiKit behavior.
      Has (in my opinion) more robust and predictable handling of hidden Inputfields, data-colwidths and showIf wrappers.
      I am very keen to help out with that stuff in any way I can, though LESS (and any css frameworks/tools basically) are not my go.
      I love CSS variables and banging-rocks-together, no-dependency CSS you can write with notepad.


    • By opalepatrick
      I see old posts saying that repeaters are not the way to go in Custom Process Modules. If that is the case, when using forms (as I am trying to do) how would one tackle things like repeat contact fields where there can be multiple requirements for contact details with different parameters? (Like point of contact, director, etc) or even telephone numbers that have different uses?
      Just for background I am creating a process module that allows me to create types of financial applications in the admin area (no need to publish any of this, pure admin) that require a lot of personal or company information.
      Maybe I am thinking about this incorrectly?
