Wow! Works like a charme!!

The only thing I would change is the color of the bold text in the tooltipps. I dont know why but, you use #777 as color. I think the contrast between the background and the color of the bold text is not really good.


Here is your CSS part:

.description strong, .notes strong {
    color: #777;
    font-weight: 700;

I would use #fff for bold text too so it would be better readable.

Congratulations to this awesome module!

Actually it's not the module's CSS but the base (Reno) theme. My module only overwrites values, though I tried to fix this but with only partial success (on load the initial CSS styling was still visible). Now I corrected this text color issue (no version change).

Thanks, I haven't noticed that (I'm using the "Compact header"). This should be fixed in v028 that is just uploaded + some small other fixes.

Hello tpr,

I am so sorry, but I found another z-index issue at the image field.


As you can see the image upload field overlap the static bar at the top. I have only discovered that with the image upload field. It seems that the static part should have a much higher z-index.

Best regards

I see but can't reproduce. Could you send a screenshot of your module settings and share your PW version and browser info?
There's a slight chance that I modified the CSS in the meantime and that's why it's not happening here.

A new version is uploaded (v029), which contains a tweak to make the module list page more compact by removing section titles and keeping only the first table header.

Hello tpr,

I use the latest Version (3.24) and I found out that this only happens if you have a special image grid setting. It is the last one which shows the inputfield for the title. If you switch to the grid views without the input field it works correctly.

Maybe this could help you to reproduce the behaviour. If not please let me know.

Just added a few CSS tweaks to the compact module list feature and it got really compact :)

Since clicking on the module names loads the module settings page I added a small icon next to them, and hided the Settings button. It may take some time get familiar with this but I think it makes sense.

Install and delete buttons are placed to the far right, so rows usually fit in one row now (depending on screen resolution and module descriptions). The delete button also got a reddish background color.

Edit: module main icons are moved to the right within their cells, so module names align nicely to the left, making them more readable (otherwise modules with no icons caused "ragged" column)

Just uploaded v032 which features a (fake) CSS loader. This is to avoid seeing the underlying styling of the Default/Reno themes for a split second.

Just thought I'd mention some things I have noticed. Sorry TPR!

Using ProDrafts cuts off the top title.

The sticky header, or button has no padding to the right and is right up against the page if not set to the left of the title.

The compact list and fake css loader though have been very nice additions.  Keep them coming!

Thanks! I can add margin to the right but unfortunately I haven't got ProDrafts to fix the overlap issue. As I see there's an extra element under the breadcrumb that pushes things down, so here a major fix would be needed.

I thought that would be the case, but that's ok.  Also just noticed this one also:

Repeater(repeater matrix field) field cuts some of the notes/info icon.

(This only happens if the repeater field is closed first.  Not sure if this has something to do with the 3.x to remember open closed repeaters.)

Thanks tpr.

Nice we now moved from a plain module list (PW2.1) to sections for sake of overview, now you make it flat again with this module :) 

I think while it's nice to have all these steroids, it's something I'm trying to keep away from doing too much admin tweaking. Some of these should be considered in core and not via such an module. It's prone to errors and confusions once core admin changes stuff around. Not trying to drag you down. Just my 2 cents.

I want to add my 2 cents too. :)

@Soma: yes it maybe error prone, and yes some of these steroids should belong into the core.

In the past we have had some small modules that tweeked a single thing in the admin, fe add more button functionality for pages directly in the page tree overview, your "page is edited reminder" to avoid accidentaly leaving a page without saving, and others.

Over the time, many of this was included into the core. And I believe not all would have benn incorporated without becoming a module first.

So, besides all the good steroids stuff here, there are two things I additionally like on AdminOnSteroids:  1) that it collects many usefull parts into a single collection, avoiding to deal with 10+ small modules, and 2) to have the ability to see (and early use) what all can be possible. Ah, there are more: 3) for Ryan it can be a good way to just try out things, and, hopefully incorporate some into the core than. 4) I can decide for every single feature to en- or disable it. I even can install AOS and have the unchanged default admin theme.

So, if there is an error (CSS/JS) I simply can disable a feature or the complete module.

I haven't had the chance to know PW 2.1 so bear with me :)

Well I don't care if something should belong to the core or not. If I need a feature that I can solve relatively easily with CSS/JS to simplify my admin life, I'll do it. If it makes itself into the core I'll happily remove from the module. But it's unlikely that these feature will be part of PW within months or even years, and I need them now. Even the admin themes don't change too rapidly so I have time to fix the errors.

Apart from these it's fun to play with this :)

@grimezy download the latest from GitHub, the button and matrix repeater issues should be fixed. The latter was present in simple repeaters too and that was already covered.

Have you encountered any JS errors with AOS?

No, there are no errors! It was just a thought / explanation that, even if someday there would be one, I simply can disable it. :)

Thanks, v034 should fix this. The default admin theme is a bit of a stepbrother because I don't use it so such bugs may come up more frequently there.

I also got rid of a z-index renumbering issue coming from sass but this doesn't mean there will be no more z-index issues :) 

There are some other CSS fixes regarding the layout for the default theme, hopefully I haven't broke anyting. The loader animation should be vertically centered too.

edit: also the textarea autosize does not work on ckeditor fields. is that intended? neither on default nor on reno theme.

edit2: it's impossible to click on links in field descriptions!2016-07-21 18_14_09-Edit Template_ blogitem • mustangs2016.dev.png

edit 3: i have this weird bug on hover buttons

No, filesort is not implemented.

Autosize never worked on ckeditor, use the autogrow plugin for that, cke is a different beast :)

Double click on description icon to freeze the tooltip, then you can copy text or click on a link.

I believe the button hover issue was always there, even before AOS. I tried to solve it but haven't succeed.

      (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.
