That's something I've already thought of but the way I tried to make it work failed and there were other things to do :) I'm not sure this module is the best place to make admin theme corrections, but for a temporary solution it could do.

Well, all your mods should be part of ProcessWire by default, so... :P

very cool tpr!

feature request: an option to show the save options instantly on button hover. i find it really annoying to have to click on this little chevron to show the popup and then have to click again on the right option. i'm still missing the very quick "save+new" and "save+close" from joomla  :-X

offtopic: also thanks for the hint to netteforms - my project needs more time than i thought but it is getting more and more awesome :)

Giving admin theme corrections a second thought I support the idea. I have a few other fixes in my mind besides your suggestions so stay tuned.

Movie time!

These are two tweaks: always visible sidebar items and fixed header/sidebar. There are still some details to polish but seems useful.

Thanks soo much! Can't wait to try it out. Unfortunately I have to deal with a deadline, but I will manage to try it out on the weekend, I'm sure.

I would prefer these extra buttons always visible. Waiting for the hover will cause frustration sooner or later :) Perhaps adding them below the main button?

what i've also came across several times is when on mobile and you have a pagetable and you want to scroll down, if you tap on a pagetable item it will trigger the pagetable sort. it would be great to disable table sorting on mobile. or show just a sort symbol and allow sorting only on this icon.

:)

in this case i would prefer them to be rendered beside in one row (inline)

v003 is uploaded with some "before-the-weekend" Reno theme updates:

  • Make header sticky: stick the header to the top of the browser window so it stays in place when scrolling down
  • Make sidebar sticky: stick the sidebar to the top to make it always visible
  • Auto hide sidebar on left: auto hide the sidebar so it's accessible by moving the mouse to the left side of the screen
  • Always show sidebar items (disable accordion): make sidebar submenus more compact and do not hide them
  • Place header button next to the main title: moves the top (cloned) main button next to the title to make it easier to reach
  • Move notice close buttons to the left: put the close button of the notice message to the left for easier access

Didn't try the module (great name btw) yet, but how about making header sticky in the default admin theme? after-the-weekend, of course :-)

don't know how your module is organized (deadline coming), but throwing in an idea:

maybe we could have a "custom" folder, where we can put in our own code snippets and your module will make them visible for toggling on/off. 

for example:

/custom/makeButtonsBigger.js would result in some custom code that makes admin buttons bigger and a checkbox in your module. that way we could build our own repository of admin tweaks, put them on github or the like and on every new pw-install we would just have to do a git clone and tick some checkboxes.

what do you think?

this is quite similar to admincustomfiles but i never found it really easy to use so i don't really use it a lot. maybe we could have some kind of syntax in thos files to restrict it to a selector and show some better descriptions in your module/panel

/* custom admin tweak example
 * 
 * #summary
 * this is a great summary
 * with lots of content
 *
 * #pageselector
 * id>10
 *
 * #editedpageselector
 * template=example
 */

$(document).ready(...);

#editedpageselector would refer to the currently edited page in processpageedit, whereas #pageselector would refer to the current admin page

any thoughts on this?

Check the latest commit (v004). There are other fixes as well for the admin themes, eg. do not apply some changes to modal contents, plus only add body classes to the proper admin themes.

This would be surely possible but I need some time to fully understand it :) At first I'll concentrate on the "basics".

v006 is up - there are some new Reno theme tweaks plus LoadCollapsedModuleInfos. This auto-collapses module info fields on module configuration pages, saving space.

v007 is up, with a Reno tweak that removes perhaps the biggest frustration the sidebar causes - the inability to single-click on the header links to navigate.

The module is featured in PW Weekly Nr 107, thanks!

Since the module is under rapid development it's likely that new features will be added before you even get to this post, which is why we won't even try to include a full list of features here.

So true, there's a lot of things awaiting to be fixed :)

v008 is committed to GitHub and it enables showing the Save dropdown menu on hover instead of on click. The only way I found to achieve this is adding a CSS class to the dropwdown which seems to work fine with the exception of Module config pages. Anyway, it covers 99% of the usage scenarios I think.

More agressive modifications were dropped because the markup wasn't generated the way I initially thought and it would be hard to solve.

v009 comes with a small feature update: ctrl+click on a language tab will activate all the language tabs of the same language. This is great for switching the current admin page fields to another language, eg. for checking contents of multiple fields at once.

The latest update (v010) can remove the masthead from the Reno theme. This is available only if sticky header is on. In fact this feature uses another approach for the sticky header because only the main content is scrollable, which perhaps makes it easier to see whether the page is scrolled down or not.

For the Reno theme there is a new setting "AlwaysShowSearch".

Other dropdown buttons are now also supported in the HoverSaveDropdown tweak. Remind me next time not trying to modify a cloned button instance because it won't work :)

There were numerous tweaks made to the admin configuration screen. Nested checkboxes now can't be modified if their parents are not checked, and also some space were saved by playing with field/fieldset options.

Hi @tpr,

thanks for making this fine tool for us. Is it for PW 2.7 too, or only for PW 3.x?

I cannot see a "required" property in the getModuleInfo. In the modules header comment it states ProcessWire 3.x, but then I cannnot see a namespace declaration in the file. This all makes me abit unsure, therefor I ask here. Sorry!

Good question. These are mainly front-end stuff so I think it won't have issues with PW 2.x. I'll try it on a 2.x install.

It seems that there are too many little thing changed from v3 which prevents certain features to work on PW v2, at least this is the case with 2.6. There are also some features that are missing from v2 that this module tries to modify, e.g long click duration.

I could breathe life into most of the submodules with little changes but I tend to support v3 only. There's a Hungarian saying "who looks backwards goes ass front to the future" and I believe in it :)

There are some unpublished updates to the module, eg fixed CKEditor toolbar and page preview link next to title. And also there are some bugs still awaiting to eliminate so I'll keep it in the shadows for a while :)

i think that would be a perfect fit for your module: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/13419-delete-a-lot-of-pics-at-once

something like an additional trash icon that, when clicked sets all images to deleted-state:

maybe you could also include this one into that update ;)

      LogMaintenance
      A simple ProcessWire module to give some maintenance control over log files. I found myself often having lots of log files for different things that can grow more or less quickly to a size where they can be difficult to maintain. The built in Logger of PW does a good job of giving you the possibility to delete or prune logs. But it has to be done manually and sometimes a log grows into millions of lines, which makes it often impossible to even prune it as it's too large.
      LogMaintenance uses LazyCron to run the maintenance task and there's several settings you can setup on a global or per log basis.
      Archive: will create zip files for each log file in logs/archive/ folder and add the log each time the maintenance is run to a subfolder containing the datetime.
      Lines: keeps logs to a certain number of lines 
      Days: keeps the log to a certain number of days
      Bytes: keeps the log to a certain amount of bytes
      Each setting is checked from top down, the first setting to contain something is used. So if you check the "Archive" option, all other settings are ignored and logs are archived everytime the LazyCron is executed. If you want to keep your logs to a certain amount of bytes just leave all other settings to 0 or blank.
      Per Log Settings
      There's a textarea that you can use to setup a config for a specific log file one per line. All the logs you define here ignore the global settings above. The syntax for the settings is:
      logname:[archive]:[lines]:[days]:[bytes] 
      errors:1:0:0:0 // would archive the errors log messages:0:10000:0:0 // will prune the errors log to 10000 lines  
      The module can be found on github for you to check out. It's still fresh and I'm currently testing.

      Fieldtype Page IDs is a third party Fieldtype that, simply put, stores Page references as integers (Page IDs).
      This fieldtype was built as a quick and dirty workaround for Page Reference fields' inability handle self-references due to circular reference issues. A project I've been working on for a while now includes a combination of RepeaterMatrix content blocks and tagging/categorization system that would've resulted in a lot of duplicate pages (and plenty of unnecessary manual work for content editors) had I used built-in Page Reference fields, and thus a new Fieldtype felt like the most sensible approach.
      Fieldtype Page IDs was designed to be loosely compatible with Page References in order to make conversions between the two feasible, but it is quite limited feature wise:
      largely due to the fact that stored values are actually just integers with no connection to Pages whatsoever some advanced selectors and related features are not supported, and page values can't be directly accessed configuration settings are limited to the bare essentials (selector string and Inputfield class) only a handful of Inputfields (AsmSelect, Checkboxes, Text) are (currently) supported Anyway, in case you need to store Page IDs (and Page IDs only) and are happy with the limitations mentioned above, feel free to give this Fieldtype a try. It has been working fine for me in one particular project, but hasn't been tested that much, so please tread carefully – and let me know if you run into any issues.

      This is a lightweight alternative to other newsletter & newsletter-subscription modules.
      You can find the Module in the Modules directory and on Github
      It can subscribe, update, unsubscribe & delete a user in a list in Mailchimp with MailChimp API 3.0. It does not provide any forms or validation, so you can feel free to use your own. To protect your users, it does not save any user data in logs or sends them to an admin.
      This module fits your needs if you...
      ...use Mailchimp as your newsletter / email-automation tool ...want to let users subscribe to your newsletter on your website ...want to use your own form, validation and messages (with or without the wire forms) ...don't want any personal user data saved in any way in your ProcessWire environment (cf. EU data regulation terms) ...like to subscribe, update, unsubscribe or delete users to/from different lists ...like the Mailchimp UI for creating / sending / reviewing email campaigns *I have only tested it with PHP 7.x so far, so use on owners risk
      EDIT:
      I've updated the module to 0.0.4. I removed the instructions from this forum, so I don't have to maintain it on multiple places. Just checkout the readme on github 🙂
      If you have questions or like to contribute, just post a reply or create an issue or pr on github.

      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.
