Admin Actions

Recommended Posts

Hi @adrian,

Have you given any thought to the idea of making some of your modules PW3-only?

For most modules I think it's nice to keep PW2 support (I have been doing that for my modules so far) but in the case of Admin Actions where the idea is that users can code their own actions it would be good to be able to declare the ProcessWire namespace in the action files, for the sake of code completion and avoiding false code warnings in an IDE.

I could add the namespace to ProcessAdminActions.module manually (to avoid fatal PHP errors), but then it will get lost when the module is upgraded.

This isn't a big issue and I can just comment out the namespace declaration in my action files after I've finished working on them. Just thought I'd ask for your view on things.

Not yet - I haven't come across any issues that the file compiler (or some small minor conditional) doesn't take care of.

Not sure I am ready to ditch 2.x support just yet, but I'll definitely keep in mind your argument re this module.

Maybe I should just ask here - anyone using this module on 2.x? Would anyone mind if it was made 3.x only?

Just installed your module, because I wanted to copy the contents of a repeater matrix field from one page to another.

It does not seem to work for repeater matrix fields though.

Could you add that as an option?

Thanks!

Hi @OllieMackJames - I'm afraid I don't have the time to do this at the moment, but I am sure you can extend the "Copy Repeater Items to Other Page" action to support RepeaterMatrix fields - probably just a matter of another loop. If you make those changes, I'd really appreciate a PR :)

Let me know if you have any questions.

@adrian, I created a pull request for adding support for Repeater Matrix to the "Copy Repeater Items to Other Page" action.

It only required a small modification to the field select options so I thought it best to keep this within the existing action rather than create a new action just for copying Repeater Matrix fields. I thought about allowing all fieldtypes that extend FieldtypeRepeater but decided it would be better to add fieldtypes on a case-by-case basis just in case someone has a custom fieldtype that extends FieldtypeRepeater in some weird and wonderful way that wouldn't be compatible with the action.

I also added a couple of other enhancements to the action - failure conditions for if the selected repeater field doesn't exist on the source or destination pages (previously the action reported a success in those cases). And copying repeater items now also copies any files or images included in the repeater items.

One last thing I added, to the module itself this time, is a link to the module config settings in the notice that advises that new actions are available.

I think it would also be handy to have a link the config settings in the process page - I often want to jump there to adjust allowed roles and the "in menu" option. I didn't include this in the pull request though - just something for you to consider.

Thanks @Robin S - looks like it is was much easier than I expected.

I also added your request for a link to the module settings from the Process page.

Really appreciate all the other tweaks and fixes - mucho appreciado!

Thanks again!

Hello

Suggestion for a new one if anyone thinks it would be useful : change values of a checkbox.

For now, unless I'm wrong, only text fields could be setORreplace.

Thanks!!

      Checkbox Reversed
      Modifies InputfieldCheckbox so that it shows the reverse of its true value. The checkbox will be unchecked when the field value is 1 and checked when the field value is not 1.
      Background
      The core FieldtypeCheckbox does not have a setting that allows a checkbox to be checked by default. One reason for this is that only a checked field saves a value to the database. An unchecked field does not save "0" to the database, but rather does not save any value for the field at all. Therefore there is no way to distinguish between a new field that has not yet been saved (and therefore could potentially get a default checked state) and a field that has deliberately been saved as unchecked.
      Because of this you sometimes have to use a checkbox in the opposite way than you would like. Suppose your client has requested a checkbox labelled "Bootylicious" that will be checked by default. This isn't possible with FieldtypeCheckbox so instead you have to convince them that a checkbox labelled "Not bootylicious" that is unchecked by default is just as good. This alternative will achieve the same thing, but it's not ideal.
      A solution
      This module doesn't change the limitations of the core checkbox field, but it provides a workaround that allows you to show the checkbox with the desired default state and label. So in the example above you would still name the field "not_bootylicious" (otherwise it could get confusing in your template files) but you can label the field "Bootylicious" and the checkbox will appear checked when its true value is actually unchecked, and vice versa. This allows new pages to show the checkbox checked by default. Clear as mud?
      Usage
      Install the Checkbox Reversed module.
      For any Checkbox field where you want the inputfield to show the reverse of its true value, activate the "Reverse the checked state of this inputfield?" option in the field settings.

      I have been following @bernhard's great tutorial on creating a Dashboard and everything has very easy to understand so far. However, I need to add a select field that a template is using (so users can create a new page from the dashboard), but I am really at a complete lost on how to achieve this. I have been googling, but can't really find anything on the matter.
      $field = $this->modules->get('InputfieldSelect'); $field->name = "Select Manufacturer"; $field->findPagesSelector = "template=basic-page"; //not needed for select field $field->labelFieldName = "title"; $field->name = "Manufacturer Select"; $field->columnWidth = 34; $fieldset->add($field); I have the above code, which was originally an InputfieldPage, but since this is an options field, I have changed it. Has anyone actually gotten a select from a template (and its' values) in a module?

      Video or Social Post Embed
      Based on the TextformatterVideoEmbed module developed by Ryan Cramer, we have added the possibility to embed publications of the main social networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
      ProcessWire Textformatter module that enables translation of YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Issuu URLs to full embed codes, resulting in a viewable video or social post in textarea fields you apply it to.
      How to install
      Download or Clone from Github: https://github.com/lexsanchez/VideoOrSocialPostEmbed
      Copy the VideoOrSocialPostEmbed.module file to your /site/modules/ directory (or place it in /site/modules/VideoOrSocialPostEmbed/).
      Click check for new modules in ProcessWire Admin Modules screen. Click install for the module labeled: "Video or Social Post Embed".
      Now you will be on the module config screen. Please make note of the config options and set as you see fit.
      How to use
      Edit your body field in Setup > Fields (or whatever field(s) you will be placing videos in). On the details tab, find the Text Formatters field and select "Video or Social Post Embed". Save.
      Edit a page using the field you edited and paste in YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and/or Issuu URLs each on their own paragraph.
      Example
      How it might look in your editor (like TinyMCE):
      How it works
      This module uses YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Issuu oEmbed services to generate the embed codes populated in your content. After these services are queried the first time, the embed code is cached so that it doesn't need to be pulled again.
      Configuration
      You may want to update the max width and max height settings on the module's configuration screen. You should make these consistent with what is supported by your site design.
      If you change these max width / max height settings you may also want to check the box to clear cache, so that YouTube/Vimeo/Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Issuu oembed services will generate new embed codes for you.
      Using with Markdown, Textile or other LML
      This text formatter is looking for a YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Issuu video URL surrounded by paragraph tags. As a result, if you are using Markdown or Textile (or something else like it) you want that text formatter to run before this one. That ensures that the expected paragraph tags will be present when VideoOrSocialPostEmbed runs. You can control the order that text formatters are run in by drag/drop sorting in the field editor.
