As a tangent question, is it possible to use InputfieldSelectize for non-page inputfields? So for example, using InputfieldSelect I can say:


<?php
$f->addOption("pie","Pie");

But using InputfieldSelectize I can't seem to figure out how to get the value in the itemDataArray. Is there a way to do this?

the way this module works is that the json is attached to each option;

you could use a plain selectize init on your inputfield select, i do that a lot and it works well... using something like a hook in ready or admin custom files...

Hello @Macrura,

I'm thinking of using Inputfield Selectize as a "visual page selector", picking pages from a page reference field, meaning I need something which works like an AsmSelect but at the same time it can display an imagefield's picture of the selectable pages along with the title. Is that possible?

"Coincidentally" it is what I want to do :) I want to create selectable "slides" which can be used on the homepage as slider images a but also on blog post pages as "featured" images, so there should be no need to upload different images for the same "slide/post pairs".

Sure, however I only spotted examples with "$page->images" and could not find any examples with "custom selectors" and that is I why I thought I ask first before installing it.

here are the settings for the image above:

1) Array of Data

$image = '';
if(count($page->images)) $image = $page->images->first();
$thumb = '';
$dims = '';
if($image !='') {
    $thumb = $image->size(100,100)->url;
    $dims = $image->width . 'x' . $image->height;
}

$data = array(
    'title'       => $page->title,
    'type'        => $page->media_type->title,
    'thumb'       => $thumb,
    'img_dims'    => $dims,
    'edit_src'    => $page->editUrl
);

return $data;

 

2) Render Item Markup

'<div class="item" style="width:100%;">' +
    (item.thumb ? '<div class="image-wrapper" style="float:left;"><img src="' + escape(item.thumb) + '" alt=""></div>' : '') +
    '<div class="info-wrapper" style="float:left; padding:5px;">' +
        '<span style="font-size:14px;font-weight:bold">' + escape(item.title) + '</span><br>' +
        '<span>Type: ' + escape(item.type) + '</span><br>' +
        (item.img_dims ? '<span>Dims: ' + escape(item.img_dims) + 'px</span><br>' : '') +
        '<a class="pw-modal pw-modal-medium" href="' + escape(item.edit_src) +
        '">Edit <span class="ui-icon ui-icon-extlink"></span></a></div>' +
'</div>'

3) Render Option markup

'<div class="item" style="width:100%;">' +
    (item.thumb ? '<div class="image-wrapper" style="float:left;"><img src="' + escape(item.thumb) + '" alt=""></div>' : '') +
    '<div class="info-wrapper" style="float:left; padding:5px;">' +
    '<span style="font-size:14px;font-weight:bold">' + escape(item.title) + '</span><br>' +
        '<span>Type: ' + escape(item.type) + '</span><br></div>' +
'</div>'

I have just I realized that in your examples $page must be a reference to the selected page and not the current page being edited. Am I right?

I should install the module instead of asking silly questions :D

correct, when you get the array of data to supply to each option, that is being used when the module iterates through the selectable pages and is then used to generate the json attribute that gets added to the select option itself, in the data-data attribute. Selectize.js natively reads that data-data attribute to get the object that it can then parse into the item and option markup that it renders... item always refers to the actual option

Hi,

Just discovered selectize. Sounds quite interesting!

However I have a small problem; title of multilang pages give [object Object]

/** display fine
$data = array(
    'title' => $page->name,
    'ville' => $page->ville,
    'region' => $page->region->name
);

/***error: printing [object Object]
$data = array(
    'title' => $page->title,
    'ville' => $page->ville,
    'region' => $page->region->title
);

Thanks

you’ll have to use the language api to get the value you want to show there;

You may also be able to try

$page->region->getFormatted('title')

but the language api should give you what you need to get that value/data if formatted doesn't work..., e.g.

$dutch = $languages->get('dutch'); // get the language we want
$body = $page->title->getLanguageValue($dutch);

Hi @Macrura

Finally I had the time to actually install the module and make changes to the website in order to use it as the "selector" of the slides. It works well, I'm just wondering why the "type" bit gave me "Undefined property" notice when using your example above. Since I do not really think displaying type is useful – if it is always "image" just as the user expects it to be... - I just simply replaced with another property of the slide page and that is the "url" where the slide is linked to.

All in all, I think this module is really great! Thanks a lot!

right, sorry, my example was pulling from a 'media' template where you have these different media types, like image, video, audio. So you wouldn't need that in your application.

      Wire Mail SMTP

      An extension to the new WireMail base class that uses SMTP-transport

      This module integrates EmailMessage, SMTP and SASL php-libraries from Manuel Lemos into ProcessWire. I use this continously evolved libraries for about 10 years now and there was never a reason or occasion not to do so. I use it nearly every day in my office for automated composing and sending personalized messages with attachments, requests for Disposition Notifications, etc. Also I have used it for sending personalized Bulkmails many times.

      The WireMailSmtp module extends the new email-related WireMail base class introduced in ProcessWire 2.4.1 (while this writing, the dev-branch only).
       
      Here are Ryans announcement.



      Current Version 0.2.6
      get it from the Modules Directory Install and Configure

      Download the module into your site/modules/ directory and install it.

      In the config page you fill in settings for the SMTP server and optionaly the (default) sender, like email address, name and signature.
      You can test the smtp settings directly there. If it says "SUCCESS! SMTP settings appear to work correctly." you are ready to start using it in templates, modules or bootstrap scripts.


      Usage Examples
      The simplest way to use it:
      $numSent = wireMail($to, $from, $subject, $textBody); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody); // or with a default sender emailaddress on config page This will send a plain text message to each recipient.
       
      You may also use the object oriented style:
      $mail = wireMail(); // calling an empty wireMail() returns a wireMail object $mail->to($toEmail, $toName); $mail->from = $yourEmailaddress; // if you don't have set a default sender in config // or if you want to override that $mail->subject($subject); $mail->body($textBody); $numSent = $mail->send(); Or chained, like everywhere in ProcessWire:
      $mail = wireMail(); $numSent = $mail->to($toEmail)->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); Additionaly to the basics there are more options available with WireMailSmtp. The main difference compared to the WireMail BaseClass is the sendSingle option. With it you can set only one To-Recipient but additional CC-Recipients.
      $mail = wireMail(); $mail->sendSingle(true)->to($toEmail, $toName)->cc(array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com')); $numSent = $mail->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); The same as function call with options array:
      $options = array( 'sendSingle' => true, 'cc' => array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com') ); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody, $options); There are methods to your disposal to check if you have the right WireMail-Class and if the SMTP-settings are working:
      $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { // Uups, wrong WireMail-Class: do something to inform the user and quit echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; return; } if(!$mail->testConnection()) { // Connection not working: echo "<p>Couldn't connect to the SMTP server. Please check the {$mail->className} modules config settings!</p>"; return; } Following are a ...


      List of all options and features


      testConnection () - returns true on success, false on failures


      sendSingle ( true | false ) - default is false

      sendBulk ( true | false ) - default is false, Set this to true if you have lots of recipients (50+)


      to ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      cc ($recipients) - only available with mode sendSingle, one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      bcc ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

       
      from = 'person@example.com' - emailaddress, can be set in module config (called Sender Emailaddress) but it can be overwritten here

      fromName = 'Name Surname' - optional, can be set in module config (called Sender Name) but it can be overwritten here


      priority (3) - 1 = Highest | 2 = High | 3 = Normal | 4 = Low | 5 = Lowest

      dispositionNotification () or notification () - request a Disposition Notification


      subject ($subject) - subject of the message

      body ($textBody) - use this one alone to create and send plainText emailmessages

      bodyHTML ($htmlBody) - use this to create a Multipart Alternative Emailmessage (containing a HTML-Part and a Plaintext-Part as fallback)

      addSignature ( true | false ) - the default-behave is selectable in config screen, this can be overridden here
      (only available if a signature is defined in the config screen)

      attachment ($filename, $alternativeBasename = "") - add attachment file, optionally alternative basename


      send () - send the message(s) and return number of successful sent messages


      getResult () - returns a dump (array) with all recipients (to, cc, bcc) and settings you have selected with the message, the message subject and body, and lists of successfull addresses and failed addresses,


      logActivity ($logmessage) - you may log success if you want

      logError ($logmessage) - you may log warnings, too. - Errors are logged automaticaly
       
       
      useSentLog (true | false) - intended for usage with e.g. third party newsletter modules - tells the send() method to make usage of the sentLog-methods - the following three sentLog methods are hookable, e.g. if you don't want log into files you may provide your own storage, or add additional functionality here

      sentLogReset ()  - starts a new LogSession - Best usage would be interactively once when setting up a new Newsletter

      sentLogGet ()  - is called automaticly within the send() method - returns an array containing all previously used emailaddresses

      sentLogAdd ($emailaddress)  - is called automaticly within the send() method

      Call ProcessWire API Functions Inside STRING
      Github Repo
      Current status : BETA
      Each called method must return string value !
      I added all functions, but not tested all. I focused page(), page()->render and field properties (label, description and notes). I also tested some basic pages() api calls.
      Your API calls must start with { and must end with }. For use multiple arguments inside functions, separate arguments with ~ char.
      NOTE If you pass directly arguments to api {page(title)}, this call will check for requestedApiCall()->get(arguments).
      USAGE
      processString(string, page, language); Get page title <?php $str = "You are here : {page:title}"; echo processString($str); ?> Get page children render result <?php $str = "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

      This module corrects a few things that I find awkward about the "Add New Template" workflow in the PW admin. I opened a wishlist topic a while back because it would good to resolve some of these things in the core, but this module is a stopgap for now.
      Originally I was going to share these as a few standalone hooks, but decided to bundle them together in a configurable module instead. This module should be considered alpha until it has gone through some more testing.
      Add Template Enhancements
      Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.

      Features
      Derive template label from name: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. When one or more new templates are added in admin a label is derived automatically from the name. There are options for underscore/hyphen replacement and capitalisation of the label. Edit template after add: when adding only a single template, the template is automatically opened for editing after it is added. Copy field contexts when cloning: this copies the field contexts (a.k.a. overrides such as column width, label and description) from the source template to the new template when using the "Duplicate/clone this template?" feature on the Advanced tab. Copy field contexts when duplicating fields: this copies the field contexts if you select the "Duplicate fields used by another template" option when adding a new template. Usage
      Install the Add Template Enhancements module.
      Configure the module settings according to what suits you.

      Hi,
      I've put in a support request (as a followup on an existing one) for this but it's nearly 10pm Ryan's time, so I thought I'd ask on here just in case someone can help...
      Yesterday we purchased ProDrafts, but I couldn't get the key to validate. Every time I hit submit on the module settings screen the key would be removed from the field I entered it in, and then it would complain about the missing value. I put in a support request and Ryan responded last night. It turned out it was because we're behind a proxy/firewall. He gave me a fix to get around that issue - some code to go into admin.php. I put that code in and saved admin.php, but now I can't even get into our admin anymore!
      (Just to clarify, I took the code back out and saved admin.php but that made no difference. It's definitely not the new code causing the error.)
      The errors relate to a lack of permission on the ProDrafts module (see attached screenshot). We do have a key, but evidently the code Ryan gave me to add the key in via admin.php isn't taking effect before the error is thrown...?
      I tried removing the ProDrafts directory from the modules directory, but that hasn't helped.
      Is there a hook I can put in somewhere to tell it not to load ProDrafts at all, or not check the permissions? Or is there some way to manually uninstall it from the file system?
      Thanks!

      I just made a textformatter module that allows you to insert dummy content (lorem ipsum style) in text fields via shortcodes.
      Usage is simple - just type for example [dc3] into a textarea with this textformatter applied (plain textarea or CKEditor) and it will be replaced at runtime by 3 paragraphs of dummy content. It can also be used to populate text fields (for headings etc) using e.g. [dc4w]. This will produce 4 words (rather than paragraphs) at runtime.
      The actual content comes from an included 'dummytext.txt' file containing 50 paragraphs of 'Lorem ipsum' from lipsum.com. The 50 paragraphs is arbitrary - it could be 10 or 100 or anything in between, and the contents of that file can be changed for your own filler text if you wish.
      The slightly clever bit is that for any given page, the same content will be returned for the same tag, but the more paragraphs available in 'dummytext.txt', the less likely it is that two pages will get the same content (very roughly speaking - it's actually based on the page ID) so content selection is determinate rather than random, even though only the tags are saved to the db.
      Update
      Tags now work like this -
      [dc3] - Show 3 paragraphs ([dc:3], [dc3p] & [dc:3p] all do the same). [dc3-6] - Show 3 to 6 paragraphs randomly per page load ([dc:3-6], [dc3-6p] & [dc:3-6p] all do the same). [dc3w] - Show 3 words ([dc:3w] does the same). [dc3-6w] - Show 3 to 6 words randomly per page load ([dc:3-6w] does the same). <End update on tags.>
      If you think it might be useful, you can download it from GitHub and give it a try.
