You mean mark deleted all + sorting buttons?

The first one alone seems superfluous as there is already a way to do it, even if it's not that obvious (double click on trash icon). But with sorting buttons it makes more sense. So you give me permission to use your module's code?

I've already thought of a filter box. Here's a screencap of its current state but it's still in an early stage. It's capable of searching image names, descriptions (multilanguage) and tags, and multiple strings at once (separated by spaces).

Filtering worked fine only until name/tag/description were unchanged because filter targets were added on load. I solved this by clicking or focusing on the filter box re-adds all the filter targets. In fact all the filters are added only on the first click so if you don't use the filter it won't add too much overhead.

! This sounds very good ! - Multilanguage and Descriptions and Tags and multiple Searchphrases - !

Man, you are awesome! ^-^  

I have seen some third party JS / jQuery scripts that do sorting and filtering, but the good ones wasn't OpenSource, and / or to bloated. Your solution sounds very good.

There are one thing I thought of while playing with that: would it be possible to filter for portrait and landscape oriented images? - or for the smallest / highest height or width?

And ahm, if you need beta tester, just call. :)

Nothing extraordinary here :) I will try to polish things a bit today and upload a new version. There are a few additions I have in mind to the filter but it's main feature should work fine.

Landscape/portrait and size filters could go to the sorting buttons bernhard suggested, once I get to that.

v012 is uploaded with the new filterbox feature. I get the onleave confirmation message after using the field and tryng to leave the page, if anyone knows an easy way to solve this that would be welcomed.

Another cosmetic fix for the filterbox: show only if there are at least 2 items to filter. It's evaluated dynamically on uploading images, so if the field is empty or contains only one image it will be hidden.


Now it's "close to perfect" according to my set of standards :)

@tpr: I have one wish and an observation to share. :)

My wish is: "Please can we have in AdminReno-CompactHeader-view the toggle icon for the sidebar?" If one do not use autohide for the sidebar it currently is missing with the compact header view.


For me, on Windows 7 with Firefox, I do not have a sticky header with the default Admintheme.

The mastheads position is set to relative, I think it must be fixed. The classes of the html element are

<html class="aos_fixScrollbarJump aos_fileFieldToolbar aos_filterbox aos_stickyHeader aos_PagePreviewLink" lang="en">

Do you need more Infos?

I'll check the fixed pos, thanks.

You can toggle the sidebar with the right-left arrows in the Reno theme, isn't that suffice? I agree that it's not very obvious.

Filterbox everywhere!

A major update to the filterbox: now available for file fields too. This was my original intention and now it's real :)

Admin theme default sticky header is also fixed. I switched to array an of classes instead simple string concat but forgot to update the default admin theme part.

It's me again :) - Thanks for the changes and new additions.

The sticky header in DefaultAdminTheme is working now, but only for screens >= 960px :)

Here is perhaps one of the last additions to filterbox - datalist:


Only image name or file name is displayed because using value+text didn't work in Firefox. Anyway, it can be a handy helper as it is.

Well, for filtering items :) E.g if you have many images or documents uploaded and you would like to find a specific one. Or if you go to the Language Translator, there can be many translation files and it can be hard finding the one you need without filtering.

v016 is uploaded to GitHub, containing the datalist feature for filterbox + a display bug fix reported by matjazp.

Filtering for filenames with images will / is be one of the most used functions of all for me. :)

If you have done the images your self and use a naming convention, this is the fasted way to find specific images / images groups out of hundreds. Also, with an own naming convention, (and knowing the images), you don't need to tag the images. :lol:

Thanks @tpr!

@tpr, maybe a new feature request:

In Editpage mode, a HotKey for saving: ctrl+s

But one that alltimes work, regardless if one are on the edit page, in a CKeditor field or another Editorfield. I know that there is a module from Soma with AdminHotkeys, but IIRR, it doesn't work when editing in a CKEditor field. But most of all, I would need it there!

Thanks! Glad to hear you can make use of it.

Just tried the ctrl-s combo and I got it working. Here is a snippet I have atm if you can't wait:

$(document).ready(function () {

    var saveButton = $('#submit_save');

    CKEDITOR.on('instanceReady', function (evt) {

        var editor = evt.editor;

        editor.document.on('keydown', function (e) {

            if (e.data.getKeystroke() == CKEDITOR.CTRL + 83) {


                return false;

      (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 ?

      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.

      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?

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no Javascript or image required.
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode.

      Detailed records
      View mode "Detailed records" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records.

      Cached visitor records
      View modes other than "Detailed records" are cached visitor counts which will be collected on a daily basis from the detailed records. This procedure ensures a faster display even with a large number of data records. Another advantage is that the detailed records can be deleted while the cache remains. The cache can be updated manually or automatically in a specified time period. Multiple visits from the same IP address on the same day are counted as a single visitor.

      Upgrade from older versions
      Cached visitor counts is new in version 1.0.8. If you just upgraded from an older version you might expire a delay or even an error 500 if you display cached visitor counts. The reason for this is that the cache has to be created from the records. This can take longer if your database contains many records. Sometimes it might hit the maximally execution time. Don't worry about that and keep reloading the page until the cache is completely created.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).

      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
