Small update that:

1) lets you add:

protected $noBackup = true;

to your action class to prevent backups (either automatic or from showing the option to backup). This is handy if your action doesn't do any DB writing in which case a backup isn't relevant.

2) lets you populate:

$this->output = 'Content for output';

to your executeAction() method. Whatever content is in this will be returned before $this->successMessage and won't be formatted with the green background. This is useful if your action queries and displays info.

Hope you guys find these useful.

 

PS - still waiting on the first PR for a user contributed action :)

EDIT: Solved this by myself, see bottom of the post.

Hi @adrian First of all, this is a really great and useful module. I want to submit the id of a page to my custom module, but I don´t want to show up the id as a field that is being shown. Right now I call the module via 

admin-actions/options?action=BewerbungsunterlagenAnfordern&id=1514

And this is my defineOptions function

        protected function defineOptions()
        {
            $missingFiles = array();
            foreach ($this->pages->get("/unterlagentypen")->children as $unterlage) {
                $missingFiles[$unterlage->id] = $unterlage->title();
            }


            return array(
                array(
                    'name' => 'missingFiles',
                    'label' => 'Fehlende Unterlagen',
                    'description' => 'Wählen Sie aus, welche Unterlagen noch benötigt werden.',
//                    'notes' => 'Only use one of "Pages" or "User Roles"',
                    'type' => 'AsmSelect',
                    'options' => $missingFiles,
                    'required' => true,
//                    'requiredIf' => 'pages=""'
                ),
                array(
                    'name' => 'id',
                    'label' => 'ID der Bewerbung',
                    'description' => 'Bitte den Inhalt dieses Feldes nicht ändern.',
                    'type' => 'Text',
                    'required' => true,
                ),

            );

        }

How can I hide the ID Field?

Just set the type to "hidden" and Voilá :)

@adrian Hi Adrian,

here are two thoughts how to improve this great module.
Remove the "<p>The '.$actionName.' action was completed successfully.</p>" in line 250 or only print it, if no custom successMessage was set.
Because one may only want to display his own messages.
Use ProcessWires $this->message or $this->error function instead of an own messaging function, so it has the "native" ProcessWire behaviour that people are used to

Hi @jmartsch - good idea - I have changed it so that message is only displayed if there is no custom message defined.

As for using $this->message or $this->error - I don't see any reason why you can't already use those if you prefer - please test and let me know. The reason I went with the other approach is to allow for a larger and more obvious response than the standard PW message/error interface provides.

If you need any additional tweaks on this front, please detail them out for me. I didn't spend a lot of time on this part of the module because it was initially designed for superuser use, although I am myself starting to make actions available to other roles, so I would like to improve this experience.

Cheers,
Adrian

@adrian Your addition with the permission "admin-actions-hide-menu" hides the menuitem for the specific role/user, but it also disables the access to the module for this user group. I logged out and in again. If I remove the permission for the role, I can access the module.

@adrian It would be nice if you add an option to hide the "Action Code" fieldset. Maybe make it only visible to superusers. But I think an option to hide it for all users would be better.

EDIT: Because it really is not important and irritating to normal users when this is being shown.

Ah, you're right - sorry about that - shouldn't do things in a rush. I think I am going to remove that option from the module completely. I'll see if I can find some time to answer the issue of hiding menu items another way in your other thread.

It is only visible for superusers - is it still an issue for you knowing that?

It would be nice to hide it from superusers as well, because superuser != programmer/developer

Ok, there is now a new config option that needs to be checked to show the action code. 

 

On an unrelated note, I also revamped the recent $noBackup option. This is a breaking change, but now you can set:

protected $dbBackup = 'automatic' (or 'optional', or 'disabled') 

in your custom actions to override the default behavior as defined in the module config settings.

Hopefully this will be a helpful change.

@adrian just asking... I am in the process of migrating 10+ websites to processwire and exporting and importing content works great so far, but in some fields old Smarty calls are present and I want to search and replace it with new Hannacode.

Unfortunately most of the affected content is in Profields Textareas and the admin action SearchAndReplace doesn't work there. All content is deleted...

Should it work in textareas or do you know of any quick fix ;) or snippet?

(BTW too many pages to it by hand)

It shouldn't be hard to support. When I set this action up I limited it to text and textarea fields, but it makes sense to expand to others - I just didn't have time to test it then. I'll see what I can do tomorrow to get this working for you.

No problem - I'm used to it :)

I am away next week, so it's now or not for a while. I have committed a quick update that should take care of Profields Textareas. Please let me know if you have any problems.

I really need to revisit this action and add support for other field types as well - for example I haven't tested inside repeaters or page tables. I'll add this to my list, but might be a while.

Holy __insert-term-of-choice__  

This works absolutely great! I replaced stuff on hundreds of pages with textareas of type text and teatareas with CKE and didn't encouter one error!
Without BCE and the replace admin action this whole untertaking of migrating to PW wouldn't work at all!

I can't thank you enough.

@hellomoto - sorry you are having trouble. I honestly don't understand what you are seeing there. It doesn't seem like an error message. How/where is this appearing? Could you maybe send a screenshot of it?

What version of ProcessWire and PHP are you running?

I've just pushed a new version of the Create Users Batcher which adds proper CSV parsing (so you can have commas, quotes, spaces etc in other user fields) - thanks to @Rudy for noting this deficiency.

I have also added the option to use JSON instead of CSV in case that is easier for your needs.

Creation now also supports image fields so you can use a URL to an image to have that added to the user's page.

And today it worked for me flawlessly! A big thanks for this (and for all the other countless goodies you've shared with us....).

Just one question though, your note in the Role's block reads:
At least one of these roles must have the "profile-edit" permission so that the user can change their password the first time they log in.

The permission profile-edit is not needed if my client does not want users to change their passwords, right? At least for the time being users should not change their passwords, it is a feature we want to add later.

Glad it worked so well for you!

The profile-edit permission I guess is not critical if you don't have the "Password Force Change" module installed, or if you are not relying on the "Email New User" module to automatically generate the user passwords. The thinking here is that you probably don't (or shouldn't) know the passwords of the users, so you use EmailNewUser to generate a password, but then you want to ensure they change it quickly because the password was included in an email (hence the use of PasswordForceChange). And to be able to change their password on first login, they need to be able to edit their profile.

I guess that wording needs to change to explain things better.

Any thoughts?

I agree, this could be improved a bit, otherwise from the security standpoint you are – of course – right.

However, currently I need to "import" old users with passwords of the previous "old" site and their role does not let them do anything in the admin, they only have access to a custom "download page" to download some "semi sensitive" docs. This will change in the future and that is when the site will need "proper" user management.

Taken care of with this commit:

Thanks @adrian :) 

Yesterday I actually "only" did some preliminary tests with around 50 users. It worked well but today I had to do the "real thing". I found that it was only about 33 users I could always create without timeout, more than that sometimes worked sometimes not. Since I had to deal with only about 150 users, I created them in groups of 33 or so, as I did not want to waste time with dealing with the timeout.

My other issue was that I had to deal with duplicate user names. The batcher – in such a case – fails with mysql error (...Duplicate entry 'super_duplex_user' for key 'name_parent_id'...) which is not too elegant :) I cleaned up the CSV to tackle this but was wondering if the script could look for them in advance? Is that out of the scope of this action?

      (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 !)
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      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 ?
    • By Chris Bennett
      https://github.com/chrisbennett-Bene/AdminThemeTweaker
      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?

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      Advantages
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no Javascript or image required.
      Disadvantages
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode.

      Detailed records
      View mode "Detailed records" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records.

      Cached visitor records
      View modes other than "Detailed records" are cached visitor counts which will be collected on a daily basis from the detailed records. This procedure ensures a faster display even with a large number of data records. Another advantage is that the detailed records can be deleted while the cache remains. The cache can be updated manually or automatically in a specified time period. Multiple visits from the same IP address on the same day are counted as a single visitor.

      Upgrade from older versions
      Cached visitor counts is new in version 1.0.8. If you just upgraded from an older version you might expire a delay or even an error 500 if you display cached visitor counts. The reason for this is that the cache has to be created from the records. This can take longer if your database contains many records. Sometimes it might hit the maximally execution time. Don't worry about that and keep reloading the page until the cache is completely created.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).

      Settings
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      IP2Location
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      Dragscroll
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
