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).

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 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

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.

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.

      This module implements the website live chat service from tawk.to. Actually the module doesn't have to do much. It just need to inserted a few lines of JavaScript just before the closing body tag </body> on each side. However, the module offers additional options to display the widget only on certain pages.
      Create an account
      Visit https://www.tawk.to and create an account. It's free! At some point you will reach a page where you can copy the required JavaScript-code.

      Open the module settings and paste the JavaScript-code into the field as shown below. Click "Submit" and that's all.

      Session Viewer is a module for ProcessWire to list session files and display session data. This module is helpful to display the session data of a specific session or to kick out a logged in user by simply delete his session file. After installation the module is available in the Setup menu.

      The following conditions must be met for the module to work properly:
      Session files
      Session data must be stored in session files, which is the default way in ProcessWire. Sessions stored in the database are not supported by this module. The path to the directory where the session files are stored must be declared in the ProcessWire configuration which is by default: site/assets/sessions.
      Serialize handler
      In order to transform session data easier back to a PHP array, the session data is stored serialized. PHP offers a way to declare a custom serialize handler. This module supports only the default serialize handlers: php, php_binary and php_serialize. WDDX was dropped in PHP 7.4.0 and is therefore not supported by this module as well as any other custom serialize handler. Which serialize handler is actually used you can find out in the module configuration which is available under Modules=>Configure=>SessionViewer.

      Session data
      The session data can be displayed in two different ways. PHP's default output for arrays print_r() or by default for this module nice_r() offered on github: https://github.com/uuf6429/nice_r. There is a setting in the module configuration if someone prefers print_r(). Apart from the better handling and overview of the folded session data the output of nice_r() looks indeed nicer.

      Repeater Easy Sort
      Adds a compact "easy-sort" mode to Repeater and Repeater Matrix, making those fields easier to sort when there are a large number of items.
      The module also enhances Repeater Matrix by allowing a colour to be set for each matrix type. This colour is used in the item headers and in the "add new" links, to help visually distinguish different matrix types in the inputfield.
      A Repeater field

      A Repeater Matrix field with custom header colours

      Easy-sort mode
      Each Repeater/Matrix item gets an double-arrow icon in the item header. Click this icon to enter easy-sort mode.
      While in easy-sort mode:
      The items will reduce in width so that more items can be shown on the screen at once. The minimum width is configurable in the field settings. Any items that were in an open state are collapsed, but when you exit easy-sort mode the previously open items will be reopened. You can drag an item left/right/up/down to sort it within the items. The item that you clicked the icon for is shown with a black background. This makes it easier to find the item you want to move in easy-sort mode. You can click an item header to open the item. An "Exit easy-sort mode" button appears at the bottom of the inputfield. Configuration
      In the field settings for Repeater and Repeater Matrix fields you can define a minimum width in pixels for items in easy-sort mode. While in easy-sort mode the items will be sized to neatly fill the available width on any screen size but will never be narrower than the width you set here.
      In the field settings for Repeater Matrix you can define a custom header colour for each matrix type using an HTML "color" type input. The default colour for this type of input is black, so when black is selected in the input it means that no custom colour will be applied to the header.
      The easy-sort mode is only possible on Repeater/Matrix fields that do not use the "item depth" option.
