html.pListShowActions .content .PageList .PageListItem { width: 100%; }

Thank you, that helped.

I recommend using Reno or Uikit theme

Unfortunately I love the default theme...

Been meaning to report this for a while. When the ASM search box option is enabled, the width of the dropdown is too narrow and look item titles wrap which looks ugly and confusing. I am seeing this in the UikIt theme - not sure about the others.

Thanks for taking a look!

Another one for you:

On the Input tab of a Page Reference field with an AsmSelect inputfield, choose custom for the label field. This enables the "Custom page label format" field, but see how it's below the "Max Limit of Items" option. On UikIt with the newish "percentage" inputfield column widths option.

@adrian Thanks, I've fixed these. The uikit field with issue is solved by adding the fields (max limit and asm placeholder) after the Required field.

@ottogal I wasn't able to find a CSS-only solution to the sticky menu + jump link issue you mentioned. Surely there's one but I've spent too much time on it without success so I let it go instead. I could add JS but that doesn't appeal to me.

There's a new productivity tweak for the Delete and Trash pagelist actions: if ctrl key is pressed you can skip the confirmation step. I found it very handy to quickly get rid of test pages. (on the Trash action I mean the one added by AOS that is available for non-superusers).

I'll release the update soon.

Speaking of deleting pages, what do you think about the idea I raised a while back...

Sometimes when testing you want to permanently delete a page after you have created or edited it, so it would be handy to be able to do that from the Delete tab rather than going back to the tree. Instead of another checkbox inside the "Move to Trash" inputfield like I showed in my earlier suggestion (I don't think it's even possible to do that with the forms API) it would be better to have a separate "Delete permanently" inputfield added to the Delete tab.

1.9.5 is uploaded. I've disabled the FileCompiler because on Win localhost it was very slow, so if you have issues try to refresh the module cache.

Changelog:

- fix inline pagelist items if "Always show pagelist actions" was checked (reported by ottogal)
- Delete and Trash action (non-superusers): skip confirmation if ctrl key is pressed
- new Skip Trash? checkbox on page edit Delete tab (SuperUsers only, requested by Robin S)
- fix NavItems causing JS error on "Find Files to Translate" page Search box
- hotkey save: do not add blocking overlay until html5 required attribute requirements are not resolved (reported by Robin S, #95)
- asmSelect searchbox: allow wider dropdown
- AdminThemeUikit, percentage-based widths ON: move AsmSelect placeholder and maxlimit fields after Required field to avoid layout issues
- add namespace and FileCompiler=0 to bypass PW's FileCompiler (slow compile on Win localhost, may need modules refresh)

Thanks for adding this feature!

It might be good (just to avoid any confusion) to exclude the skip trash option on the delete tab of ProcessUser because the deletion there is permanent by default.

When I mentioned earlier that I may decide to create to create a new admin theme from aos many of you liked the idea. Yesterday I tried it out and I see how easy it would be to port some features without hacks, and removing the extra code needed to support the 3 major admin themes. 

So if decide to rewrite that would mean a faster and leaner module that is easier to maintain, but at the cost of dropping support for the default and reno themes. Plus as it would be forked from the uikit theme, I would have to constantly adjust it when the original theme is updated.

So what do you think about it?

I think several AOS features need to be in the core 🙂

Seriously though, if we could get the most used features in the core, then perhaps the lesser used ones could remain in a trimmed down AOS. I think I'd rather see a module that works on top of a core theme, rather than you creating a separate theme that misses out on new features that Ryan adds until you have a chance to add them to your version of the theme. Does that make sense?

I don't think you should being trying to maintain support for multiple themes though - I think going forward PW needs one solid flexible theme which can be restyled via CSS and functionality tweaked by hooks and js overrides. I think having multiple themes with different codebases just makes things difficult for Ryan because he often has to add new functionality to multiple themes - this is why I always stick with his default, which in my mind is UiKit these days. Anyway, I am a little OT now, but hopefully my ramblings make sense.

I agree with Adrian - in the future you might get too busy or just want to take a break from developing AOS and then users wouldn't be able to get new features or bug fixes that Ryan applies to the core admin theme.

I also think it might turn out to be quite a hassle for you to apply core admin theme changes to your custom theme, because once the methods have been modified you won't be able to see changes easily via a simple diff. You'd have to monitor the core diffs instead and then manually hunt through your custom methods to find the equivalent locations.

But once AdminThemeUikit has been the default admin theme for some period of time then I think it would be quite reasonable to say that AOS requires AdminThemeUikit and doesn't support the older themes.

Ok, thanks for your opinions. I'll leave AOS as it is, and when things start going out of control it will support only one admin theme.

@tpr, I have two questions, but don't bear with me, If I just have overseen the answers. 🙂

1) is there a shortkey (like ctrl+s) for "Save and Add New" available, or is it possible to add this as new feature?

2) Is there a way, (also a none public one*), to get the configuration exported out of one installation and imported into another one?

* means, I'm also fine with it, to copy/paste parts from/to sql-dumps.

Currently there's no such hotkey. I've tried it earlier without luck but surely there's a way. 

You can copy settings.php from one install to another. Check Save settings checkbox in the bottom of config and save the module. Then on the other site check the same checkbox and save. Then uninstall aos, put settings.php to aos dir and install.

When I enable AOS and try to move files/images, this happens (incognito mode, no options selected, just enabled module, no js errors):

Disabling html.aos{min-width:100vw;overflow-x:hidden} helps.

@matjazp Thanks, I've fixed that (came to the same solution without reading yours first :))

In v1.9.9 there is a tweak to add counters to asmSelects (for Page Reference and Options fields):

Hi @tpr - as always thanks for this module. I wanted to add a feature request, which is to make the case changer something that could be used on other text fields (not sure how feasible that is); using that one a lot and is really helpful; i hacked my own 'other field' usage for the moment.. (using AdminCustomFiles)

Interesting, I use it very rarely. I remember using it only once when I copied many badly formatted articles with random title cases, and it was a great help.

I've modified this feature so it works now on text(language) fields and file/image description fields as well, even after uploading new items. Plus it works with ajax loaded fields and repeaters too. It's also new that on case change an input change is also triggered so you'll get a confirmation alert to save on leaving the page. I've also fixed some positioning issues, eg with expanded language tabs.

I'll upload the new version tomorrow if everything goes well.

All set, please try. I will check if I can add the case toggle to Batch Child Editor's page title field too, that would also come handy. If you have other special fields in mind to support, please tell.

      I'm really in love with FormBuilder, but the one thing missing to match all my end users' expectations were repeatable field groups. Think repeaters, in ProcessWire terms. Our primary application of PW is our corporate intranet, so "lines" of fields are quite common in the forms I build. We have all kinds of request forms where the information for a varying number of colleagues needs to be entered (from meal order to flight booking request) and where it is simply impractical to send a form for each, and I don't want to clutter my forms with multiple instances of fields that may only get used ten percent of the time.
      That's why I started to build FormBuilderMultiplier (link to GitHub).
      What it does:
      Adds an option to make a regular Fieldgroup repeatable Lets you limit the number of instances of a Fieldgroup on the form Adds an "Add row" button the form that adds another instance of the Fieldgroup's fields Adds a counter suffix at the end of every affected field's label Stores the entered values just like regular fields Makes the entered values available in preview and email notifications Supports most text based fields, textareas and selects (really, I haven't had enough time to test all the available choices yet) What it doesn't do (yet):
      Support saving to ProcessWire pages (i.e. real Repeaters) I haven't tested all the validation stuff, Date/Time inputs etc. yet, but since I'm utterly swamped with other stuff at work, I didn't want to wait until I have it polished. Any feedback is welcome. There might also be some issues with different output frameworks that I haven't encountered yet. The forms I work with mostly use UIKit.
      Status:
      Still alpha, so test well before using it in the field.
      Known issues:
      When rows are added, the form's iframe needs to be resized, which isn't completely clean yet.
      How it works:
      The Fieldgroup settings are added through regular hooks, as is the logic that adds the necessary field copies for processing the form and displaying previews.
      "Multiplied" field instances are suffixed with _NUM, where NUM is an incremental integer starting from 1. So if you have add two fields named "surname" and "givenname" to a fieldgroup and check the "multiply" checkbox, the form will initially have "surname_1" and "givenname_1" field (I'm still considering changing that to make the risk to shoot oneself into the foot by having a regular "surname_1" field somewhere else in the form less likely).
      When a "row" is added, the first row is cloned through JS and the counter in the fields' IDs, names and "for" attributes as well as the counter in the label are incremented before appending the copies to the Fieldset container in the form.
      To keep backend and frontend in sync, a hidden field named [name of the fieldset]__multiplier_rows is added to the form. Both the backend and the frontend script use this to store and retrieve the number of "rows".
      ToDo:
      Naturally, add the option to store the data in real repeaters when saving to pages. Do a lot of testing (and likely fixing). Make a few things (like the "Add row" button label etc.) configurable in field(set) context. Add a smooth API to retrieve the multiplied values as WireArrays. The mandatory moving screenshot:

      Hello there,
      I'm working on a tiny textformatter module that searches the text for titles of other pages on your site and creates hyperlinks to them. I'm not sure if something like this exists already, but I haven't found anything in the module directory, so I wrote my own solution 🙂
      It's not properly tested yet and is still missing some functionality I would like to implement, so at the moment it should be considered in BETA. Features include limiting the pages that will get searched by template, and adding a custom CSS class to the generated hyperlinks. As I'm writing this I noticed that it will probably include unpublished and hidden pages at the moment, so yeah ... it's still in development alright 😅
      You can download the module from Github:
      https://github.com/MoritzLost/TextformatterPageTitleLinks
      There's some more information in the readme as well.
      Anyway, let me know what you think! I'm happy about any feedback, possible improvements or ideas on how to improve the module. Cheers.

      This module provides a way to rapidly generate Page fields and the required templates and pages for use as a drop down select (or any other Page field type).
      This module will let you create a full page field setup in literally a few seconds 
      To use, run Page Field Select Creator from the Setup Menu
      Enter a Field Title, eg: Room Types Select Options - These will become the child pages that will populate the page field select options. There are two different options.
       
      Option 1. TITLE FIELD ONLY - enter one option per line, eg:
       
      Single
      Double
      Suite
       
       
      Option 2. MULTIPLE FIELDS - the first line is used for the field names and the first field must be 'Title'. Subsequent lines are the values for the fields, eg:
       
      Title, Number of Beds, Number of People, Kitchen Facilities
      Single, 1, 1, Fridge Only
      Double, 2, 2, Fridge Only
      Suite, 3, 6, Full Kitchen
        Choose the parent where the page tree of options will be created, eg a hidden "Options" parent page Select a "Deference in API as" option depending on your needs Choose the input field type Check whether "Allow new pages to be created from field?" should be enabled. As an example, if you entered "Room Types" as the field title, you would end up with all of the following automatically created:
      a fully configured page field called: room_types MULTIPLE FIELDS OPTION - 3 additional fields - number_of_beds, number_of_people, kitchen a parent template called: room_types a child template called: room_types_items (with either just a title field, or with the 3 additional fields as well) a parent page called: Room Types a series of child pages named and titled based on the per line entries in the Select Options textarea The templates are configured such that the "room_types_items" child template can only have the main "room_types" template as a parent, and vice versa.

      Then all you have to do is add the newly created page field to any template you want and you're ready to go!
       
      You can grab it from:

      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.

      MediaLibrary
      Update: MediaLibrary can now be found in the official module list.
      Out of necessity, I've started to implement a simple media library module.
      The basic mechanism is that it adds a MediaLibrary template with file and image fields. Pages of this type can be added anywhere in the page tree.
      The link and image pickers in CKEditor are extended to allow quick selection of library pages from dropdowns. In the link picker this happens in the MediaLibrary tab, where you can also see a preview of the selected image. In the image picker, simply select a library from the dropdown at the top, everything else is handled by standard functionality.
      I've put the code onto github. This module is compatible with ProcessWire 3.
      Steps to usage:
      Download the module's zip from github (switch to the pw3 branche beforehand if you want to test on PW 3.x) and unpack it into site/modules Click "Modules" -> "Refresh" in the admin Click "Install" for MediaLibrary For testing, create a page with the MediaLibrary template under home (give it an expressive title like 'Global Media') and add some images and files Edit a differnt page with a CKEditor field and add a link and an image to see the MediaLibrary features in action (see the screencap for details) Optionally, go into the module settings for MediaLibrary Note: this module is far from being as elaborate as Kongondo's Media Manager (and doesn't plan to be). If you need a feature-rich solution for integrated media management, give it a look.
      Feel free to change the settings for MediaFiles and MediaImages fields, just keep the type as multiple.
      There are some not-so-pretty hacks for creating and inserting the correct markup, which could probably be changed to use standard input fields, though I'm a bit at a loss right now how to get it to work. I've also still got to take a look at error handling before I can call it fit for production. All feedback and pointers are appreciated (that's also why I post this in the development section).

      Edit 09.03.2016 / version 0.0.4: there's now also a "Media" admin page with a shortcut to quickly add a new library.

      Edit 01.05.2016:
      Version 0.0.8:
      - The module now supports nested media libraries (all descendants of eligible media libraries are also selectable in link/image picker).
      - There's a MediaLibrary::getPageMediaLibraries method you can hook after to modify the array of available libraries.
      - You can switch between (default) select dropdowns or radio boxes in the module configuration of MediaLIbrary to choose libraries.
      Edit 10.10.2018:
      Version 0.1.3:
      - Dropped compatibility for ProcessWire legacy versions by adding namespaces
      - Allow deletion of libraries from the Media overview admin page
      - Added an option to hide media libraries from the page tree (optionally also for superusers)
