Getting the page title a repeater field is on from a pageField


Go to solution Solved by a-ok,

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I have a repeater set up on a 'fabrics' page. When you add a fabric, you then add an image and a colour (per row on a repeater); the colour field is a pageField which lists out all the colours from the Colours section. See screenshot for an example. post-2553-0-76415800-1466168632_thumb.pn

Across the site, where 'related fabrics' come into play, the client will choose, via a pageField, all the relevant fabrics and it'll take the first row of the repeater (image and assigning colour) and display it. See second screenshot as an example. post-2553-0-51105000-1466168676_thumb.pn This is all good and works BUT there is one section of the site 'In-Situ' where the client would have to choose a specific colour from a fabric (and not just the fabric).

As the image/colour combos are set up as a repeater (which are added as pages in the CMS under 'Admin > Repeaters' (which is amazing) I can simply tell a pageField, using a custom selector, to show each 'row' from across the site (which would return all the images and colour options for each fabric).

template=repeater_collections_detail_images, include=hidden, sort=name

This works a treat. I can then use the custom page label format which would return the parent title of the page it's on and then the title of the colour chosen.

{parent.title} – {collections_detail_image_colour.title}

I have one issue, however. The parent.title isn't user-friendly and is rather the canonical title of the page, not the actual title of the page, so looks more like a name than a title. See the third and fourth screenshot as an example. post-2553-0-27627800-1466168718_thumb.pnpost-2553-0-01989400-1466168719_thumb.pn

The only thing I can think of is that these repeaters and their rows are on these specific fabric pages, right? So is there a way for the custom page label format to return the title of THAT page and not the repeater page? See my final screenshot for what I mean. post-2553-0-87329500-1466168795_thumb.pn The repeater has a path, for example, .../for-page-1080/ and the page 1080 that it is referring to is the page of the title I am trying to get.

Any ideas? I realise this is a little long-winded but any help or advice would be appreciated.

I think what I could do is include a hidden field in the repeater and write a addHookAfter to fill this hidden field with the page title on save, then just use that field? Seems a bit odd? But maybe not?

Only thing I'm struggling with is trying to add a hook to a repeater set the value of a field per repeater row.

I thought this would've worked

$pages->addHookAfter('Pages::saveReady', function($event) {
    $page = $event->arguments('page');
    $repeater = $page->collections_detail_images;
    foreach ($repeater as $row) {
        //$page->message($row);
        $row->collections_detail_image_page_title = 'TEST';
    }
});

$pages->addHookAfter('Pages::saveReady', function($event) {
    $page = $event->arguments(0);
    $repeater = $page->collections_detail_images;
    foreach ($repeater as $row) {
        $row->of(false);
         $row->collections_detail_image_page_title = $page->title;
        $row->save();
    }
});

This is what worked.

      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?

      I was previously using individual fields to capture and output multiple cards onto my web page but after recently learning about repeaters would prefer to use this field type, as it will be a lot more user friendly for end users to create new cards. I tried to modify my code to grab the fields from the new Repeater field(s) but am getting this error message on the page:
      Here is the code I'm currently trying to use for the cards:
      <?php // https://processwire.com/api/arrays/ // check if the array of images has items foreach($page->tall_card as $card) { $count = 0; $count++; $options = array( 'quality' => 70 ); $image = $card->image; $img = $card->image->size(550, 400, $options); $cardHeading = $card->title; $cardBody = $card->plain_paragraph; $raised = $card->raised_amount; $goal = $card->goal_amount; $link = $card->link; if ($raised == 0 ) : $percent = 0; else: $percent = $raised_amount / $goal_amount * 100; endif; if ($percent <= 5) : $percent = 0; endif; ?> <span id="card<?php echo $count?>" class="card"> <img class="cardThumb" src="<?php echo $img->url; ?>" alt="<?php echo $image->description; ?> Thumbnail" /> <div class="cardBody"> <div class="cardText"> <h2><?php echo $cardHeading; ?></h2> <?php echo $cardBody; ?> </div> <div class="progressBarSection"> <progress class="progressBar" id="progressbar<?php echo $count; ?>" value="<?php echo $percent; ?>" max="100"></progress> <span class="raisedAmount"> $<?php echo $raised; ?> usd </span> <span class="goalAmount"> $<?php echo $goal; ?> usd </span> </div> <div class="primaryBtn"> <a href="https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id= <?php echo $link; ?> &source=url"> <button> <i class="fas fa-donate"></i> Donate </button> </a> </div> </div> </span> <?php } ?> Thanks in advance for any help!

      Coming from Perch (CMS) to Processwire, the one major downside I've found is that every place I want to insert content into my pages requires a single field (be that an image, integer, string, etc.). This can be a real pain to setup and manage if you have a lot of pages, many of them with dozens of unique fields. For example, on the Projects page of a site I'm working on right now I have to have fields for donate_amount (1-15, meaning fifteen unique fields that I have to duplicate manually), goal_amount(1-15), card_body(1-15), etc. After using Perch for a while, the way their system works is simply easier. You instead create your fields in a single PHP template (for every unique section, like a card) and their CMS imports those fields into the CMS when you choose to use that card, then you just fill in the values. You can also choose to reuse that card multiple times and each one you add gives you the several fields you need to fill in. So you can easily add your 15 cards, each with a picture, title, paragraph, and link, etc. and each one is basically given a unique ID that you can reference in your CSS files. If there's any way to make fields and templates work more like that, it would be a truly outstanding and efficient CMS. The great advantage of the way Perch is setup is that I can make a card with 10 fields, if need be, and easily duplicate that card out 40 times if I need 40 cards on the page and wouldn't need 10 fields for 40 cards (meaning in PW I would need 400 fields). If there's an easier way to do this in PW I would love to know, but as of right now, from what little I do know about the CMS 400 fields would be the only way to set that up, and that would be much more time consuming than if I could create one card (in PHP) with 10 fields that automatically added a number to the end of each field for each card (if that makes sense).

      It's been twice this year as a PW developer where clients have asqued me to have a way to put content on specific coordinates of a picture. Something like what image maps are made of. But not necesarly on links, sometimes text, sometimes images and links. 
      So I've been thinking to build an inputfield for that purpose. But I'm not sure how could it be the most flexible so I can share it in github/modules page.
      Ideally it would need to work like a repeater field where you start uploading an image and then adding any custom field like title, url etc. So the user could add multiple elements floating over that image.
      Does anybody here know the ideal way to start the arquitecture of something like that? I could just hardcode the fields I need for the website I have to code this month but it would be nice to be something more flexible.

      how to get all the subfields of a repeater field generically? I'm not talking about a specific field that I know the name of, that's easy, I'm trying to access them in general in the $fields variable itself.
      Better yet, how to access them by type?
