Hi everyone,

Here's a new module that I have been meaning to build for a long time.

http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-admin-actions/

https://github.com/adrianbj/ProcessAdminActions

 

What does it do?

Do you have a bunch of admin snippets laying around, or do you recreate from them from scratch every time you need them, or do you try to find where you saw them in the forums, or on the ProcessWire Recipes site?

Admin Actions lets you quickly create actions in the admin that you can use over and over and even make available to your site editors (permissions for each action are assigned to roles separately so you have full control over who has access to which actions).

 

Included Actions

It comes bundled with several actions and I will be adding more over time (and hopefully I'll get some PRs from you guys too). You can browse and sort and if you have @tpr's Admin on Steroid's datatables filter feature, you can even filter based on the content of all columns. 

Screen Shot 2016-11-29 at 11.30.44 AM.png

The headliner action included with the module is: PageTable To RepeaterMatrix which fully converts an existing (and populated) PageTable field to either a Repeater or RepeaterMatrix field. This is a huge timesaver if you have an existing site that makes heavy use of PageTable fields and you would like to give the clients the improved interface of RepeaterMatrix.

Copy Content To Other Field
This action copies the content from one field to another field on all pages that use the selected template.

Copy Field Content To Other Page
Copies the content from a field on one page to the same field on another page.

Copy Repeater Items To Other Page
Add the items from a Repeater field on one page to the same field on another page.

Copy Table Field Rows To Other Page
Add the rows from a Table field on one page to the same field on another page.

Create Users Batcher
Allows you to batch create users. This module requires the Email New User module and it should be configured to generate a password automatically.

Delete Unused Fields
Deletes fields that are not used by any templates.

Delete Unused Templates
Deletes templates that are not used by any pages.

Email Batcher
Lets you email multiple addresses at once.

Field Set Or Search And Replace
Set field values, or search and replace text in field values from a filtered selection of pages and fields.

FTP Files to Page
Add files/images from a folder to a selected page.

Page Active Languages Batcher
Lets you enable or disable active status of multiple languages on multiple pages at once.

Page Manipulator
Uses an InputfieldSelector to query pages and then allows batch actions on the matched pages.

Page Table To Repeater Matrix
Fully converts an existing (and populated) PageTable field to either a Repeater or RepeaterMatrix field.

Template Fields Batcher
Lets you add or remove multiple fields from multiple templates at once.

Template Roles Batcher
Lets you add or remove access permissions, for multiple roles and multiple templates at once.

User Roles Permissions Batcher
Lets you add or remove permissions for multiple roles, or roles for multiple users at once.

 

Creating a New Action

If you create a new action that you think others would find useful, please add it to the actions subfolder of this module and submit a PR. If you think it is only useful for you, place it in /site/templates/AdminActions/ so that it doesn't get lost on module updates.

A new action file can be as simple as this:

class UnpublishAboutPage extends ProcessAdminActions {

    protected function executeAction() {
        $p = $this->pages->get('/about/');
        $p->addStatus(Page::statusUnpublished);
        $p->save();
        return true;
    }

}

Each action:

  • class must extend "ProcessAdminActions" and the filename must match the class name and end in ".action.php" like: UnpublishAboutPage.action.php
  • the action method must be: executeAction()

As you can see there are only a few lines needed to wrap the actual API call, so it's really worth the small extra effort to make an action.

Obviously that example action is not very useful. Here is another more useful one that is included with the module. It includes $description, $notes, and $author variables which are used in the module table selector interface. It also makes use of the defineOptions() method which builds the input fields used to gather the required options before running the action.

class DeleteUnusedFields extends ProcessAdminActions {

    protected $description = 'Deletes fields that are not used by any templates.';
    protected $notes = 'Shows a list of unused fields with checkboxes to select those to delete.';
    protected $author = 'Adrian Jones';
    protected $authorLinks = array(
        'pwforum' => '985-adrian',
        'pwdirectory' => 'adrian-jones',
        'github' => 'adrianbj',
    );

    protected function defineOptions() {

        $fieldOptions = array();
        foreach($this->fields as $field) {
            if ($field->flags & Field::flagSystem || $field->flags & Field::flagPermanent) continue;
            if(count($field->getFieldgroups()) === 0) $fieldOptions[$field->id] = $field->label ? $field->label . ' (' . $field->name . ')' : $field->name;
        }

        return array(
            array(
                'name' => 'fields',
                'label' => 'Fields',
                'description' => 'Select the fields you want to delete',
                'notes' => 'Note that all fields listed are not used by any templates and should therefore be safe to delete',
                'type' => 'checkboxes',
                'options' => $fieldOptions,
                'required' => true
            )
        );

    }


    protected function executeAction($options) {

        $count = 0;
        foreach($options['fields'] as $field) {
            $f = $this->fields->get($field);
            $this->fields->delete($f);
            $count++;
        }

        $this->successMessage = $count . ' field' . _n('', 's', $count) . ' ' . _n('was', 'were', $count) . ' successfully deleted';
        return true;

    }

}

 

This defineOptions() method builds input fields that look like this:

Screen Shot 2016-11-29 at 12.32.59 PM.png

Finally we use $options array in the executeAction() method to get the values entered into those options fields to run the API script to remove the checked fields.

There is one additional method that I didn't outline called: checkRequirements() - you can see it in action in the PageTableToRepeaterMatrix action. You can use this to prevent the action from running if certain requirements are not met.

At the end of the executeAction() method you can populate $this->successMessage, or $this->failureMessage which will be returned after the action has finished.

 

Populating options via URL parameters
You can also populate the option parameters via URL parameters. You should split multiple values with a “|” character.

You can either just pre-populate options:

http://mysite.dev/processwire/setup/admin-actions/options?action=TemplateFieldsBatcher&templates=29|56&fields=219&addOrRemove=add

or you can execute immediately:

http://mysite.dev/processwire/setup/admin-actions/execute?action=TemplateFieldsBatcher&templates=29|56&fields=219&addOrRemove=add


Note the “options” vs “execute” as the last path before the parameters.

 

Automatic Backup / Restore

Before any action is executed, a full database backup is automatically made. You have a few options to run a restore if needed:

  • Follow the Restore link that is presented after an action completes
  • Use the "Restore" submenu: Setup > Admin Actions > Restore
  • Move the restoredb.php file from the /site/assets/cache/AdminActions/ folder to the root of your site and load in the browser
  • Manually restore using the AdminActionsBackup.sql file in the /site/assets/cache/AdminActions/ folder

I think all these features make it very easy to create custom admin data manipulation methods that can be shared with others and executed using a simple interface without needing to build a full Process Module custom interface from scratch. I also hope it will reduce the barriers for new ProcessWire users to create custom admin functionality.

Please let me know what you think, especially if you have ideas for improving the interface, or the way actions are defined.

Nice!

Just an idea: could the actions accept url params? Eg. prefill the template selector with "basic-page" using this url:

/admin/setup/admin-actions/options?action=TemplateFieldsBatcher&templates=basic-page

This would enable linking the action from other places of the admin (eg. add right-click menu option on pagelist, etc).

Plus another idea: actions could be put into a subdir, if users start to contribute actions their number will increase.

Btw I see you haven't overcomplicated the UI of the roles :)

Awesome idea and bad ass realization @adrian! (pardon my French)

I did not install yet but will do soon and check it out. As @szabesz said collaboration is the baddest part. I can expect a load of wise stuff to learn from those actions contributed by PW gurus. It just might happen that there will be a lot of actions - maybe put them in a folder?

And one question about the backup. It seems it is custom and not integrated with db backup module. Is there a reason for that?

I like the idea - are you thinking that if all required options are passed it would be possible to run directly with no intermediate "Execute Action" button? Perhaps an additional url parameter: ?execute=true - without this, all options would be prefilled, but the user would still have the option to modify if needed before executing.

Any thoughts?

Yeah, I did think about it, but I think you're right, it is probably a good idea.

I think you are being genuine and not sarcastic, but just wanted to clarify. I am actually wondering if maybe I should convert the config settings page to a DataTables layout (like how it is on the main module process page) - not sure how simple that would be to implement at this point, but might be nice if this starts to fill out with a lot of actions. Btw, in case you guys didn't realize, you can actually remove the superuser role from any actions you know you won't ever use so that you have a shorter list to choose/filter from when using the module.

Definitely part of my goal! And yes, I agree with you and @tpr - a subfolder is the way to go.

Are you talking about this module: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-database-backups/ - what if users don't have it installed? 

At the moment it only stores the one version of the backup - it gets overwritten every time you run a new action. It would be no problem to store more backups, but I was worried that it might be tempting to restore an old backup which could take you back too far and you might lose some manually adjusted content etc. The idea of the automatic backup was to provide a quick recovery from an action that didn't do what you expected. I am definitely happy to revisit this though, so please everyone give me your ideas on this.

Let's inform them ;) Jokes aside, the db backup module is supported by Ryan, so it should be safe to rely on it.

Sensible use cases would dictate to try things out in a development environment not on a live site, so I would not worry too much about this.

Let me think about this a little more - even in a dev environment restoring to a really old backup could be disastrous if you're still developing the site. I guess that's the responsibility of the dev to be smart about things though.

@adrian How about adding:


protected $authorForumsProfile = '985-adrian';

so that one can more easily identify the author? Should be used as trailing part of the href attribute, of course ;) 

I like it - I think giving authors proper credit will hopefully promote more contributions.

I have gone with PW developer directory link, PW forum profile, and also Github account, with linked icons.

Screen Shot 2016-11-30 at 7.28.31 AM.png

I could maybe provide the option for the author to fully customize their links, but don't want things getting too ugly. Any thoughts?

Ok, the optional author links are now available. These are the current options:

    protected $authorLinks = array(
        'pwforum' => '985-adrian',
        'pwdirectory' => 'adrian-jones',
        'github' => 'adrianbj',
    );

Ok, this functionality is ready, although please test carefully at this stage.

You can populate the option parameters via URL parameters. You should split multiple values with a "|" character.

There are two options:

1) You can either just pre-populate the options values, but still showing the options page where you can make changes via the options form GUI:

http://mysite.dev/processwire/setup/admin-actions/options?action=TemplateFieldsBatcher&templates=29|56&fields=219&addOrRemove=add

2) or you can execute immediately with the passed options values:

http://mysite.dev/processwire/setup/admin-actions/execute?action=TemplateFieldsBatcher&templates=29|56&fields=219&addOrRemove=add


Note the "options" vs "execute" as the last path segment before the parameters. 

Please try it out and let me know what you think. Do you think it might also be nice to have an option to redirect to another page after it has executed, rather than showing the results page? With your suggestion of linking from other places in the admin are you thinking about maybe an ajax call to an action, rather than loading the page? I haven't tested this yet, but it might be a nice option. I might even be able to return a JSON formatted response if called via ajax?

I think a use case could be established first to see how this could work.

Well you should get to work on one then :)  

Send me a PR with a new action and I can work on the ajax response to suit your needs and we'll take it from there!

It's now available in the modules directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-admin-actions/ 

It also includes a few new actions. The first post and the Github ReadMe give a small description of each action.

Hope you all find something useful among them.

Again, please feel free to contribute some actions, or if you have an idea but don't know how to build, let me know and maybe I can put it together.

<attempted geek joke> If you are into the new syntax of PHP 7.1, how about something like this...

public function declareBrexitReferendumResult() : void;     /* UK version */
public function declarePresidentialElectionResult() : void; /* US version */

...take your pick. :undecided: </attempted geek joke>

For those of you who are experienced with the PW API (and those looking to learn), there is now an "Action Code" viewer that shows the executeAction() method of the action you are about to execute. It is of course collapsed by default and only available to superusers.

Anyway, hope you'll find it useful and either reassuring (if you're worried about what code it about to be executed on your site), or informative as to what can be done with the API.

Hi everyone,

To celebrate @teppo featuring this module in PW Weekly, I have added a new action: Create Users Batcher

It lets you quickly create many users by entering: "username, email address" on separate lines in a textarea.

This action requires the EmailNewUser module and it must be configured to automatically generate a user password. The action checks for this module and that setting before it will let you proceed. I also recommend that you install the PasswordForceChange module to reduce the risks of having emailed a password to a user.

You can set multiple roles to be added to each new user. Be aware that at least one of these roles must have the "profile-edit" permission so that the user has the ability to change their password when they first login.

Screen Shot 2016-12-10 at 10.05.07 PM.png

 

Note that EmailNewUser will report each successful user creation and email sent success.

Screen Shot 2016-12-10 at 10.05.34 PM.png

 

I hope that the next time you need to create several users for a new client that you'll give this a try.

And of course, don't forget to send me your own actions for inclusion with the module :)

Quick update to the CreateUsersBatcher action. It now allows two options:

1) Define Username and email address (requires EmailNewUser to generate password).

2) Define additional user template fields (whichever ones you want). If you use this option and include the password, then you don't need the EmailNewUser module.

You could even given all staff at a client's office the same temp password and let me know by phone (this way there is no security risk with emailing even a temporary password that will be changed) - it's your choice.

Hopefully this screenshot will help to explain it better - note that the "New Users" textarea lists the fields from the user template and the order they need to be entered. In this example I have additional "first_name" and "last_name" fields, as well as the field added by the PasswordForceChange module which you can set to 1 to enforce this if you want.

New version now supports running actions via the API. 

Here's an example of copying content of a field from one page to another.

Simply load the module, and call the action class name as a method while passing the required options as an array:

$options = array(
   'field' => 99, 
   'sourcePage' => 1131, 
   'destinationPage' => 1132
);
$modules->get("ProcessAdminActions")->CopyFieldContentToOtherPage($options);

Hopefully you'll find a use for this in your hooks or template files.

I think the admin UI could be re-arranged into a table layout:

  • first column: action names
  • second column: description/notes
  • third column: applied roles + and Edit button, that opens a modal or perhaps only unhides the role asmSelector. Alternatively you can set the asmSelect to operate in "inline" mode, I've experimented with that and it worked.

I know it would take some time, but sooner or later this has to be done :)

      Hello community!

      I want to share a new module I've been working on that I think could be a big boost for multi-language ProcessWire sites.

      Some background, I was looking for a way for our company website to be efficiently translated as working with human translators was pretty laborious and a lack of updating content created a divergence between languages. I, and several other devs here, have talked about translation integrations and have recognized the power that DeepL has. DeepL is an AI deep learning powered service that delivers translation quality beyond any automated service available. After access to the API was opened up to the US, I built Fluency, a DeepL translation integration for ProcessWire.
      Fluency brings automated translation to every multi-language field in the admin, and also provides a translation tool allowing the user to translate their text to any language without it being inside a template's field. With Fluency you can:
      Translate any plain textarea or text input Translate any CKEditor content (yes, with markup) Translate page names for fully localized URLs on every page Translate your in-template translation function wrapped strings Translate modules Fluency is free, and now so is DeepL
      Since this module was first built DeepL has introduced free Developer accounts that allow anyone to start using Fluency at zero cost and beginning with the version 0.3.0 release Fluency now supports free DeepL accounts. As of June 2021 DeepL supports translation to 26 languages and continues to offer more!
      Installation and usage is completely plug and play. Whether you're building a new multi-language site, need to update a site to multi-language, or simply want to stop manually translating a site and make any language a one-click deal, it could not be easier to do it. Fluency works by having you match the languages configured in ProcessWIre to DeepL's. You can have your site translating to any or all of the languages DeepL translates to in minutes (quite literally).
      Let's break out the screenshots...
      When the default language tab is shown, a message is displayed to let users know that translation is available. Clicking on each tab shows a link that says "Translate from English". Clicking it shows an animated overlay with the word "Translating..." cycling through each language and a light gradient shift. Have a CKEditor field? All good. Fluency will translated it and use DeepL's ability to translate text within HTML tags. CKEditor fields can be translated as easily and accurately as text/textarea fields.

      Repeaters and AJAX created fields also have translation enabled thanks to a JavaScript MutationObserver that searches for multi-language fields and adds translation as they're inserted into the DOM. If there's a multi-language field on the page, it will have translation added.

      Same goes for image description fields. Multi-language SEO friendly images are good to go.

      Creating a new page from one of your templates? Translate your title, and also translate your page name for native language URLs. (Not available for Russian, Chinese, or Japanese languages due to URL limitations). These can be changed in the "Settings" tab for any page as well so whether you're translating new pages or existing pages, you control the URLs everywhere.

      Language configuration pages are no different. Translate the names of your languages and search for both Site Translation Files (including all of your modules)

      Translate all of the static text in your templates as well. Notice that the placeholders are retained. DeepL is pretty good at recognizing and keeping non-translatable strings like that. If it is changed, it's easy to fix manually.

      Fluency adds a "Translate" item to the CMS header. When clicked this opens up a modal with a full translation tool that lets the user translate any language to any language. No need to leave the admin if you need to translate content from a secondary language back to the default ProcessWire language. There is also a button to get the current API usage statistics. DeepL account owners can set billing limitations via character count to control costs. This may help larger sites or sites being retrofitted keep an eye on their usage. Fluency can be used by users having roles given the fluency-translate permission.

      It couldn't be easier to add Fluency to your new or existing website. Simply add your API key and you're shown what languages are currently available for translation from/to as provided by DeepL. This list and all configuration options are taken live from the API so when DeepL releases new languages you can add them to your site without any work. No module updates, just an easy configuration. Just match the language you configured in ProcessWire to the DeepL language you want it to be associated with and you're done. Fluency also allows you to create a list of words/phrases that will not be translated which can prevent items such as brands and company names from being translated when they shouldn't

       
      Limitations:
      No "translate page" - Translating multiple fields can be done by clicking multiple translation links on multiple fields at once but engineering a "one click page translate" is not feasible from a user experience standpoint. The time it takes to translate one field can be a second or two, but cumulatively that may take much longer (CKEditor fields are slower than plain text fields). There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't currently on the roadmap. No "translate site" - Same thing goes for translating an entire website at once. It would be great, but it would be a very intense process and take a very (very) long time. There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't on the roadmap. No current support for Inline CKEditor fields - Handling for CKEditor on-demand hasn't been implemented yet, this is planned for a future release though and can be done. I just forgot about it because I've never really used that feature personally.. Alpha release - This module is in alpha. Releases should be stable and usable, but there may be edge case issues. Test the module thoroughly and please report any bugs via a Github issue on the repository or respond here. Please note that the browser plugin for Grammarly conflicts with Fluency (as it does with many web applications). To address this issue it is recommended that you disable Grammarly when using Fluency, or open the admin to edit pages in a private window where Grammarly may not be loaded. This is an issue that may not have a resolution as creating a workaround may not be possible. If you have insight as to how this may be solved please visit the Github page and file a bugfix ticket.
      Requirements:
      ProcessWire  3.0+ UIKit Admin Theme That's Fluency in a nutshell. A core effort in this module is to create it so that there is nothing DeepL related hard-coded in that would require updating it when DeepL offers new languages. I would like this to be a future-friendly module that doesn't require developer work to keep it up-to-date.
      The Module Is Free
      This is my first real module and I want to give it back to the community as thanks. This is the best CMS I've worked with (thank you Ryan & contributors) and a great community (thank you dear reader).
      DeepL Developer Accounts
      In addition to paid Pro Developer accounts, DeepL now offers no-cost free accounts. Now all ProcessWire developers and users can use Fluency at no cost.
      Learn more about free and paid accounts by visiting the DeepL website. Sign up for a Developer account, get an API key, and start using Fluency today.

      (once again I was surprised to see a work of mine pop up in the newsletter, this time without even listing the module on PW modules website 😅. Thx @teppo !)

      This is a simple module I made so a client could quickly grab a QR Code of the page's url in the admin.
      There's not much to it for now, but if need be you can output anything using a hook:
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) You can also output the QR code on your front-end by calling the field:
      echo $page->qr_code_field; The module uses the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase. When looking for a way to generate a QR Code in PW I came across @ryan's integration in his TFA module. I'm not very familiar with fieldtype/inputfield module development so I blindly followed @bernhard (great) tutorial and his BaseFieldtypeRuntime. At some point I'll take a deeper look to make a module on my own.
      Some ideas for improvements :
      add the ability to choose what to ouput : page's url / editUrl / file(s) / image(s) / ... allow to output multiple QR codes ?

      Inspired by @bernhard's excellent work on the new customisable LESS CSS getting rolled into the core soon, I thought I would offer up the module for beta testing, if it is of interest to anyone.

      It takes a different approach to admin styling, basically using the Cascade part of CSS to over-ride default UiKit values.
      Values are stored in ModuleConfig Module creates a separate AdminThemeTweaker Folder at root, so it can link to AdminThemeTweaker.php as CSS AdminThemeTweaker.php reads the module values, constructs the CSS variables then includes the CSS framework Can be switched on and off with a click. Uninstall removes everything, thanks to bernhard's wonderful remove dir & contents function.
      It won't touch your core. It won't care if stuff is upgraded. You won't need to compile anything and you don't need to touch CSS unless you want to.

      It won't do much at all apart from read some values from your module config, work out the right CSS variables to use (auto contrast based on selected backgrounds) and throw it on your screen.
      You can configure a lot of stuff, leave it as it comes (dark and curvy), change two main colors (background and content background) or delve deep to configure custom margins, height of mastheads, and all manner of silly stuff I never use.

      Have been developing it for somewhere around 2 years now. It has been (and will continue to be) constantly tweaked over that time, as I click on something and find something else to do.
      That said, it is pretty solid and has been in constant use as my sole Admin styling option for all of those 2 years.

      If nothing else, it would be great if it can provide any assistance to @bernhard or other contributor's who may be looking to solve some of the quirkier UiKit behavior.
      Has (in my opinion) more robust and predictable handling of hidden Inputfields, data-colwidths and showIf wrappers.
      I am very keen to help out with that stuff in any way I can, though LESS (and any css frameworks/tools basically) are not my go.
      I love CSS variables and banging-rocks-together, no-dependency CSS you can write with notepad.

      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 ran across a reference to IftRunner module. The post was 6 years ago. I cant find it in available modules. Has it been pulled?
