It is currently only compatible with the devns branch.  Give me some minutes to make backward compatibilty :-X .

It is now compatible with ProcessWire-2.7.

Thanks for doing this and will start working with this one this week-end. Really excited about it if this one can release me from using Pocketgrid all the time. Did you know that there is a thread about templates for Processwire ?

https://processwire.com/talk/topic/12892-processwire-marketplace/

This bootstrap profile could be a very good one to start with.

@pwired :   I will send an email to @kongondo about processwireshop.pw! Thanks for suggesting that.

----

A small trick to make the navbar/dropdown working on mouseover instead of click event:

In js/script.js add :

$(document).ready(function(){
    $('ul.nav li.dropdown').hover(function() {
        $(this).find('.dropdown-menu').first().stop(true, true).delay(200).fadeIn(200);
    }, function() {
        $(this).find('.dropdown-menu').first().stop(true, true).delay(200).fadeOut(200);
    });
});

Is there anything that has to be compiled before using this template ? For example until now I only use plane css and not sass also never used "bower-install" Maybe there is a pre-compiled version ?

In the current state of the profile, Bootstrap is already precompiled in css/styles.css; You can also find in the folder css a file called main.css where you can override all values and use it as pure css - without the need of using sass and associated tools - but at this point  you still need Bower.

Bower is used to manage assets like font-awesome and a dependency like tether in our case. With this tool we can manage libs easily and we can avoid repeating tasks. It is really easy to install and do not require any knowledge for the task we accomplish here. If you want to get started with, check the following instructions :

  1. goto https://nodejs.org/ ,  download / install NodeJS
  2. install Git (if you're on Windows, be sure to check Run Git from command-prompt)
  3. open a terminal and type npm install -g bower

done.

You can now execute the bower install command-line.

 

Anyway, if its really required, I can make tonight a profile with precompiled files so you can test it this week-end :). Just let me know.

Hi @flydev,
Thanks for stepping in on this. I am not yet familiar with node and git and use processwire with plane php, api, css and pocketgrid. So Yes I would appreciate it for making a profile with precompiled files to enable me start using your template. Thanks in advance.

I have setup an online test server and uploaded/installed the pre-compiled profile (template) inside a processwire 2.7.2 setup. It looks everything is working well and also nicely responsive. I find this great. I am going to have a look in the back and front end and see how I can change it into some website and learn bootstrap and tether. You can see the online setup here: http://dev9.pe.hu

Thanks you for trying this profile.

I just pushed an update to the css for the responsive menu. Just remove the following code in main.css.

Spoiler

/* meanmenu adjustment (see body: line-height) */
.mean-nav ul li {
    line-height: 24px;
}
.mean-container .mean-nav ul li a.mean-expand {
    height: 24px;
}

@flydev Thanks a lot for putting this together. I was only waiting for BS4 to reach beta state before I will update my site-pwbs profile. Now I don't need to spend the time on it myself, which is great :)

@pwired @cstevensjr

I can only recommend to preprocess yourself and encourage you to look into node, compass, bower etc. It really is worth the effort and gives you so much more flexibility. With the precompiled version of this profile, you need to override a lot of stuff in your own CSS and this will bloat your code.

While I agree with you that one needs to expand their horizons, we also need to understand that not everyone uses the latest technology.  We should strive to make these profiles accessible to everyone, no matter their knowledge/skill level.

My push will always be about accessibility to technology by all.  I firmly believe that's how things will spread.

@cstevensjr I partly agree with you. And again thanks to @flydev for providing the precompiled version. But in a way this defeats the purpose of a sass based site profile.

You seem to be stuck on sass and I am talking about having PW profiles that a basic beginner (who may or may not know anything about sass) can utilize.  We are coming together from two totally different planes.  Yes, I believe it was fantastic and a good trend that @flydev augmented the profiles by including the precompiled version.  It should be a great learning tool for all.

@cstevensjr Got your point and totally agree with what you're saying. I didn't mean to force anybody into using preprocessors. Just wanted to encourage people to start looking into it because it really can make live easier...

Thank you Flydev. I've spent several days looking for proper solution to the PW BS3 dropdown menu issue. And then today I've found this. This profile will be my based from now onward. So far it works good, looking forward to build something great out of this. Once again TQVM.

Hi @kibod ,  glad you like it and choose it as project starter.

And yes in this profile you can have the first parent as menu, clickable.

Hi @flydev, I plan to use your profile for my next project. I've installed it and it works fine. The carousel however just has only images and no corresponding heading and links, for that would really make the carousel experience complete. Is there a way to add heading and link to the images? Thanks.

Can you please tell me the version of ProcessWire ?

Yes, you have to copy and/or modify the function bsRenderCarousel();

For instance, you could use a repeater to pass datas to the function. Let's say we create a repeater with the three following fields: image_carousel, heading, heading_description

Capture.PNG

and insert the repeater with the name 'carousel' in the home template.

 

In _func.php, add this function :

Spoiler

function bsRenderCarouselFromArray(array $datas) {

    $cnt = count($datas['images']);
    $id = $datas['images'][0]->get('page').$datas['images'][0]->get('field')->id;
    $out  = "<div id='carousel-{$id}' class='carousel slide' data-ride='carousel'>
                <ol class='carousel-indicators hidden-sm-down'>";
    $i = 0;
    foreach($datas as $image) {
        $class = ($i == 0) ? "active" : "";
        $out .= "<li data-target='#carousel-{$id}' data-slide-to='{$i}' class='{$class}'></li>";
        $i++;
        if($i >= $cnt) break;
    }
    $out .= "</ol>
             <div class='carousel-inner' role='listbox'>";
    $i = 0;

    foreach($datas as $data) {
        $class = ($i == 0) ? "active" : "";
        $out .= "<div class='carousel-item $class'>
                <img src='{$datas['images'][$i]->url}' alt='{$datas['images'][$i]->description}' height='{$datas['images'][$i]->height}' width='{$datas['images'][$i]->width}'>
                <div class='carousel-caption'>
                    <h3>{$datas['headings'][$i]}</h3>
                    <p>{$datas['description'][$i]}</p>
                </div>
             </div>";
        $i++;
        if($i >= $cnt) break;
    }
    $out .= "</div>";
    $out .= "<a class='left carousel-control' href='#carousel-{$id}' role='button' data-slide='prev'>
                <span class='icon-prev' aria-hidden='true'></span>
                <span class='sr-only'>Previous</span>
             </a>
             <a class='right carousel-control' href='#carousel-{$id}' role='button' data-slide='next'>
                <span class='icon-next fa fa-chevron-right ' aria-hidden='true'></span>
                <span class='sr-only'>Next</span>
            </a>
        </div>";

    return $out;
}

a bit hacky but eh...

 

Then in the home template, make the array and call the new function with the new array as parameter :

// render the carousel
//$content .= bsRenderCarousel($page->images);
foreach ($page->carousel as $key => $value) {
    $datas['images'][] = $value->carousel_image;
    $datas['headings'][] = $value->heading;
    $datas['description'][] = $value->heading_description;
}

$content .= bsRenderCarouselFromArray($datas);

 

Result:

Hi @flydev, It works like a charm :-). Thank you, thank you. The only other thing i needed was a link/button to link the slide to another page/post. I'll try to do that myself first. If I get stuck will ask for your help. Thank you very much.

      I have one central website, with membership registration and content etc., and then several related websites with their own URL/domains, each on Processwire, all on the same server.
      I would like to access the database of the central website from the sister websites. How would I do that?
      You can't bootstrap one PW installation into another. You can include template parts from one in the other by just using the server path, but whatever you try to get/post just comes/goes to the database of the site you are on.
      Could you switch databases by including the config.php from another PW installation somewhere?
      What is the correct, secure way to do this?

      Hi all,
       
      I'm really new to ProcessWire, maybe I missed the solution in the documentation.
      I'm working on a site which involves a lot of image upload fields, and I'm always getting many timeout errors. I'm pretty sure it's because I generate too many variations on a single page load (around 20 images with 7 different sizes, for them to be responsive).
      I can't use ImageSizerEngineIMagick to help (my host doesn't support it).
       
      I was wondering if there was a way to hook to the process of client-side image resizing (https://processwire.com/blog/posts/processwire-3.0.63-adds-client-side-image-resizing/) to generate the different variations (as it seems really faster). If not, is there a way to generate the different variations on upload and not on page load ?
       
      Any ideas and suggestions are welcome!

      Hello again! 

      Unfortunately I came across another problem. 

      I have a "regular" ProcessWire setup and want to create a separate php script. That script should be executed by a cron job and is bootstrapped with my PW setup. Main goal is to send mails which are stored in a email field. 
      My problem: I want to access a specific field from a template where only specific users have access to. Right now, the cron job is executed as "guest", of course. 

      How can I bypass this restriction, so that I have access to that specific field (it's only one email field)? 

      Does it make sense to set current user via api? 

      Hope you can help me out there.

      Cheers,
      Andreas

      I am using ProcessWire as the back-end to manage contents on multiple sites (I call them "sub-domains"). I use ProcessWire as an editing system and database only. The ProcessWire templating system is not in use. I want to use ProcessWire's API and in particular the Include & Bootstrap method to output contents -- pretty much in the same way you do, if contents is stored in a MySQL database and output in PHP files that use PDO to load data.
      The issue is that I cannot get ProcessWire to fully work on each of the "sub-domains".
      https://processwire.com/api/include/ says:
       
      > You can do anything with ProcessWire's API that you can do from a template,
      > so all of this still applies, as does everything in the developer API.
      How can I get access to variables such as $input when using Include & Bootstrap?
      I tried these:
      $wire->pages->get("/foo/bar/"); echo "Segment1: " . $wire->input->urlSegment1; # Returns null $wire->pages->get("/foo/bar/"); echo "Segment1: " . $wire->input()->urlSegment1; # Internal Server Error $p = $wire->pages->get("/foo/bar/"); echo "Segment1: " . $p->input->urlSegment1; # Returns null $p = $wire->pages->get("/foo/bar/"); echo "Segment1: " . $p->input()->urlSegment1; # Returns null @ryan Can the API Variables documentation be updated with a section / an example that explain how to use "Include & Bootstrap" for each variable (since this is a really strong feature in ProcessWire)?
      $page $pages - Example: $homepage = $wire->pages->get("/"); $input $sanitizer $session $fields $user $log $templates $config

      Here's a mixin I put together for creating hamburger icons.
      It utilizes the checkbox hack so you can use CSS only to show a mobile menu (or off-canvas menu, etc).
      Unlike other mixins here you can specify a selector for the label tag if it's not directly below the checkbox, so the label (the icon) can be placed anywhere in the DOM.
      There is also a "hamburger_tint" helper mixin included to easily colorize the icon/text on hover or in a checked state.
      Parameters:
      width: the width of the icon. default: 32px thickness: the thickness of the bars. default: 3px gap: the vertical space between the bars. Overall height is: thickness*3 + gap*2. default: 7px color: the color of the icons. default: #000 (black) radius: border-radius value to round edges. default: 0 anim: seconds of animation duration (transition-duration) or timing function + duration (eg. "ease-out 0.3s"). Use -1  to disable morphing to an "X". default:0.25s labelselector: in case the label is not right after the checkbox, use this setting to tell the mixin where to find it. Eg. "~ div.content header nav label". default: "+ label" padding: extra spacing around the icon. default: 0 text: show text next to the icon, by default on the right. Values: "left" or false to disable. Requires an extra "span" tag. default: "right" CodePen demo
