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)

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.

      #######################
      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      TrelloWire
      This is a module that allows you to automatically create Trello cards for ProcessWire pages and update them when the pages are updated. This allows you to setup connected workflows. Card properties and change handling behaviour can be customized through the extensive module configuration. Every action the module performs is hookable, so you can modify when and how cards are created as much as you need to. The module also contains an API-component that makes it easy to make requests to the Trello API and build your own connected ProcessWire-Trello workflows.
      Features
      All the things the module can do for you without any custom code: Create a new card on Trello whenever a page is added or published (you can select applicable templates). Configure the target board, target list, name and description for new cards. Add default labels and checklists to the card. Update the card whenever the page is updated (optional). When the status of the card changes (published / unpublished, hidden / unhidden, trashed / restored or deleted), move the card to a different list or archive or delete it (configurable). You can extend this through hooks in many ways: Modifiy when and how cards are created. Modify the card properties (Target board & list, title, description, et c.) before they are sent to Trello. Create your own workflows by utilizing an API helper class with many convenient utility methods to access the Trello API directly. Feedback & Future Plans
      Let me know what you think! In particular:
      If you find any bugs report them here or on Github, I'll try to fix them. This module was born out of a use-case for a client project where we manage new form submissions through Trello. I'm not sure how many use-cases there are for this module. If you do use it, tell me about it! The Trello API is pretty extensive, I'll try to add some more helper methods to the TrelloWireApi class (let me know if you need anything in particular). I'll think about how the module can support different workflows that include Twig – talk to me if you have a use-case! Next steps could be a dashboard to manage pages that are connected to a Trello card, or a new section in the settings tab to manage the Trello connection. But it depends on whether there is any interest in this 🙂 Links

      Process Cache Control
      This module 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) Clear the ProCache page render cache (if your site is using ProCache) 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.
      Plans for improvements
      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!

      PrevNextTabs Module
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/PrevNextTabs
      Processwire helper modules for adding page navigation within the editor.
      Overview
      This is a very simple module that adds Previous and Next links inline with the tabs on the page editor. Hovering over the tab shows the title of the previous or next page (using the admin's built in jqueryUI tooltips.)
      Usage
      This module is typically used during development where you or your editors need to traverse through pages for the purpose of proofing, flagging and/or commenting. Rather than returning to the page tree or lister, they can navigate with these links.
      Warnings
      If you are using PW version 2.6.1 or later, the system will prevent you from leaving the page if you have unsaved edits.
      For earlier versions, to avoid accidentally losing changes made to a page that might occur if a user accidentally clicks on one of these, make sure to have the Form Save Reminder module installed.
