I'm testing in Chrome. It's looking good in uikit and reno theme.

Right, I see the problem now looking at it with the default theme. 

I can take a look tomorrow to see if I can get it working there as well.

@matjazp - I decided to take a look now and I have pushed a fix which seems to have things working well in the default theme as well as Uikit.

Please let me know if it looks ok at your end now also.

Hi @matjazp - I just tested the default theme on Safari, FF, and Chrome and it looks fine here.

The css I added to fix the position of the links (and also the space between the text above the tabs) is:

html.AdminThemeDefault li#AdminActionsList ul.WireTabs {
    margin-top: 3em;
}

https://github.com/adrianbj/ProcessAdminActions/blob/d95cafe225c958db38e015ebe5df329ed9e826db/ProcessAdminActions.css#L5-L7

Would you mind taking a look to see if that is being applied please. Maybe it needs an !important added to it.

I'll sort out that undefined index notice

Also curious why you aren't seeing the icons I recently added to all of the actions - does saving the settings page take care of that?

It's not applied because AdminThemeDefault class is set on body, not on html. This is what I have now and it's working here:

.Inputfields .InputfieldMarkup .InputfieldContent {
    margin-top: 0;
}

div#links {
    margin-left: calc(100% - 250px);
    text-align: right;
    position: relative;
    top: 35px;
    z-index: 103;
}
.AdminThemeDefault div#links {
      top: .5em;
}

#AdminActionsList {
    background: none;
}
.AdminThemeDefault #AdminActionsList {
    margin-top: 1em;
}

Mind z-index on div#links.

Because there is no $info['icon'], see the php notice in my second screenshot:

array (6)
title => "Copy Content to Other Field" (27) description => "This action copies the content from one field to another field on all pages that use the selected template." (107) notes => "This can be useful if you decide you need to split one field into two to allow different settings on different templates. It also makes it easy to move content from one field type to another one that is incompatible." (216) author => "Adrian Jones" (12) authorLinks => array (3) roles => array (1)

in ...\ProcessAdminActions\ProcessAdminActions.module:388

Interesting - turns out that AOS actually adds AdminThemeDefault to html which is why it was working for me here. @tpr - is this something that can or should be changed?

Anyway, thanks for helping to debug this - I have updated the CSS with part of what you provided above, but it had a problem with UiKit, so it's a combined version that seems to work with both themes and with AOS on and off. Please let me know if it looks ok at your end.

I think if you save the module settings page it should fix the icons. Can you please confirm.

Unfortunately the default admin theme doesn't have this class on the html while others do so aos adds that to normalize things (for styling and toglle features).

No problem at all - it was an easy fix at my end for AdminActions - just a bit of initial confusion 🙂

This is a very useful set of tools.

But I have a problem and I am looking for which tool will help to solve it.

Is there such a function as copying one field of a repeater to another field of a repeater on the same page?

For example, the situation is as follows:
-I have a repeater field for which I want to change the template without losing the values.
-I make a new repeater field with a different name, but with the same fields and add it to the page template.
-I need to copy all the values from the first field of the repeater to the second.

It’s like the "Page Table to Repeater/Repeater Matrix" function or "Copy Repeater Items To Other Page" function.

Sorry if I'm off topic.

Tip: How to "rename" an image field when the name you want to rename it to already exists

I ran into a situation when I had two single-file image fields.  Let's call them A and B.

I didn't like the field name of 'A' and I wanted to give it a new name of 'B', but that field name was already being used in OTHER templates and had content populated.

Therefore we need a clever way to rename A into B.

With non-image fields this isn't a problem, but with an image field, there's files involved, so it gets a little more complicated.

Admin Actions can handle this using the "Copy Content to Other Field" action.

Set Source to 'A' and Destination to 'B'.

The way it seems to be programmed is that it won't actually make a copy of the file (which is good because I don't want to duplicate the image), but instead it seems to copy the name of the file to the destination image field.

Once the action has been run, if you view the a page using the template you applied to the action to, you will see that the image exists in both fields.  DO NOT TOUCH THEM because whether you delete from A or B, it will delete in both fields.

So now to complete this renaming, edit your template file and remove field "A".  It will remove the field, but it will NOT remove the image, which is good.

The end result is you now have image field 'B' with the contents from 'A', without having had to duplicate the image (meaning any references to that image will still be intact and not 404) and without ProcessWire having deleted the image when you removed "A" from your template.

🕺

Hi @adrian,

Within an admin action we have the option to return true or false depending on if the action succeeded or failed (and I assume success or failure is up to the action author depending on what the overall objective of the action is).

If an action returns true then a database restore link is shown.

2019-10-28_164148.png.1843493f3a34219d3efa4b67abf0634a.png

But it seems that if the action returns false then the link to restore the database is not shown.

2019-10-28_163817.png.746477704efacb5380a8381372e9d78f.png

I'm not sure if no backup is made or it's just the restore link that's missing - maybe the former because when I manually visited the /restore/ URL segment and clicked the Restore button then the restore didn't work. Is it possible to get a backup and a link to restore it when an action returns false?

Also, maybe the background colour of the failure message could be a pale red because it's hard to see links against the dark red (there's actually a link to the logs in the failure message above).

BTW, the module readme doesn't make it entirely clear that an action should return false on the fail state, as only the failureMessage is mentioned:

Quote

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

Hi @Robin S - the backup should still get created even if the action returns false. Could you perhaps send me your action code to test?

The actual action I noticed this on works with an external database so it's not easily shareable but attached is a demo action that shows the issue. Thanks for taking a look at this.

Thanks - from what I can tell, the backup is being created successfully - it's just not linked to. The new version just committed now returns this with the restore link included and the error color changed to match the PW uikit color and also make links white and underlined so they are visible.

You mentioned above that the restore didn't work though, so please test the new version and let me know.

Hi @Knubbi - can you please test the attached version of that action?

If it works as expected for you, I'll commit it to the module repo.

Hey @adrian,

What do you think about the idea of adding a link to the "Restore" page somewhere within the main interface? I know it's accessible via the flyout menu but it's easy (for me at least) to overlook or forget this and there have been a few times where I've started to worry that I don't have the ability to restore a backup when an action fails due to an error or I've navigated away from the success screen which includes the restore link. Then after a moment I remember where the link is and breathe a sigh of relief. 😅

@Robin S - I know you already know that your request has been done, but just letting everyone else know that the Restore functionality is now built into the interface's tab system. Hopefully everyone will find this a useful enhancement.

      This is a new module that provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Beta release
      Note that I consider this a Beta release. Since the module is relatively aggressive in deleting some caches, I would advise you to install in on a test environment before using it on a live site.
      Let me know if you're getting any errors, have trouble using the module or if you have suggestions for improvement!
      In particular, can someone let me know if this module causes any problems with the ProCache module? I don't own or use it, so I can't check. As far as I can tell, ProCache uses a folder inside the cache directory to cache static pages, so my module should be able to clear the ProCache site cache as well, I'd appreciate it if someone can test that for me.
      Future plans
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      This module is (yet another) way for implementing a cookie management solution.
      Of course there are several other possibilities:
      - https://processwire.com/talk/topic/22920-klaro-cookie-consent-manager/
      - https://github.com/webmanufaktur/CookieManagementBanner
      - https://github.com/johannesdachsel/cookiemonster
      - https://www.oiljs.org/
      - ... and so on ...
      In this module you can configure which kind of cookie categories you want to manage:

      You can also enable the support for respecting the Do-Not-Track (DNT) header to don't annoy users, who already decided for all their browsing experience.
      Currently there are four possible cookie groups:
      - Necessary (always enabled)
      - Statistics
      - Marketing
      - External Media
      All groups can be renamed, so feel free to use other cookie group names. I just haven't found a way to implement a "repeater like" field as configurable module field ...
      When you want to load specific scripts ( like Google Analytics, Google Maps, ...) only after the user's content to this specific category of cookies, just use the following script syntax:
      <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="statistics" data-src="/path/to/your/statistic/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing" data-src="/path/to/your/mareketing/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="external_media" data-src="/path/to/your/external-media/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing">console.log("Inline scripts are also working!");</script> The type has to be "optin" to get recognized by PrivacyWire, the data-attributes are giving hints, how the script shall be loaded, if the data-category is within the cookie consents of the user. These scripts are loaded asynchronously after the user made the decision.
      If you want to give the users the possibility to change their consent, you can use the following Textformatter:
      [[privacywire-choose-cookies]] It's planned to add also other Textformatters to opt-out of specific cookie groups or delete the whole consent cookie.
      You can also add a custom link to output the banner again with a link / button with following class:
      <a href="#" class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</a> <button class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</button> This module is still in development, but we already use it on several production websites.
      You find it here: https://github.com/blaueQuelle/privacywire/tree/master
      Download: https://github.com/blaueQuelle/privacywire/archive/master.zip
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂

      Admin Page Tree Multiple Sorting
      ClassName: ProcessPageListMultipleSorting
      Extend the ordinary sort of children of a template in the admin page tree with multiple properties. For each template, you can define your own rule. Write each template (template-name) in a row, followed by a colon and then the additional field names for sorting.
      Example: All children of the template "blog" to be sorted in descending order according to the date of creation, then descending by modification date, and then by title. Type:
      blog: -created, -modified, title  Installation
      Copy the files for this module to /site/modules/ProcessPageListMultipleSorting/ In admin: Modules > Check for new modules. Install Module "Admin Page Tree Multible Sorting". Alternative in ProcessWire 2.4+
      Login to ProcessWire backend and go to Modules Click tab "New" and enter Module Class Name: "ProcessPageListMultipleSorting" Click "Download and Install"   Compatibility   I have currently tested the module only under PW 2.6+, but think that it works on older versions too. Maybe someone can give a feedback.     Download   PW-Repo: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-page-list-multiple-sorting/ GitHub: https://github.com/FlipZoomMedia/Processwire-ProcessPageListMultipleSorting     I hope someone can use the module. Have fun and best regards, David

      Hello,
      this module can publish content of a Processwire page on a Facebook page, triggered by saving the Processwire page.
      To set it up, configure the module with a Facebook app ID, secret and a Page ID. Following is additional configuration on Facebook for developers:
      Minimum Required Facebook App configuration:
      on Settings -> Basics, provide the App Domains, provide the Site URL, on Settings -> Advanced, set the API version (has been tested up to v3.3), add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "https://www.example.com/processwire/page/" to field Valid OAuth Redirect URIs. This module is configurable as follows:
      Templates: posts can take place only for pages with the defined templates. On/Off switch: specify a checkbox field that will not allow the post if checked. Specify a message and/or an image for the post.
      Usage
      edit the desired PW page and save; it will post right after the initial Facebook log in and permission granting. After that, an access token is kept.
       
      Download
      PW module directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/auto-fb-post/ Github: https://github.com/kastrind/AutoFbPost   Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is utilized.
