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;


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.

      Repeater Images
      Adds options to modify Repeater fields to make them convenient for "page-per-image" usage. Using a page-per-image approach allows for additional fields to be associated with each image, to record things such as photographer, date, license, links, etc.
      When Repeater Images is enabled for a Repeater field the module changes the appearance of the Repeater inputfield to be similar (but not identical) to an Images field. The collapsed view shows a thumbnail for each Repeater item, and items can be expanded for field editing.

      Install the Repeater Images module.
      Create an image field to use in the Repeater field. Recommended settings for the image field are "Maximum files allowed" set to 1 and "Formatted value" set to "Single item (null if empty)". Create a Repeater field. Add the image field to the Repeater. If you want additional fields in the Repeater create and add these also. Repeater Images configuration
      Tick the "Activate Repeater Images for this Repeater field" checkbox. In the "Image field within Repeater" dropdown select the single image field. You must save the Repeater field settings to see any newly added Image fields in the dropdown. Adjust the image thumbnail height if you want (unlike the core Images field there is no slider to change thumbnail height within Page Edit). Note: the depth option for Repeater fields is not compatible with the Repeater Images module.
      Image uploads feature
      There is a checkbox to activate image uploads. This feature allows users to quickly and easily add images to the Repeater Images field by uploading them to an adjacent "upload" field.
      To use this feature you must add the image field selected in the Repeater Images config to the template of the page containing the Repeater Images field - immediately above or below the Repeater Images field would be a good position.
      It's recommended to set the label for this field in template context to "Upload images" or similar, and set the visibility of the field to "Closed" so that it takes up less room when it's not being used. Note that when you drag images to a closed Images field it will automatically open. You don't need to worry about the "Maximum files allowed" setting because the Repeater Images module overrides this for the upload field.
      New Repeater items will be created from the images uploaded to the upload field when the page is saved. The user can add descriptions and tags to the images while they are still in the upload field and these will be retained in the Repeater items. Images are automatically deleted from the upload field when the page is saved.
      The "Use accordion mode?" option in the Repeater field settings is useful for keeping the inputfield compact, with only one image item open for editing at a time. The "Repeater item labels" setting determines what is shown in the thumbnail overlay on hover. Example for an image field named "image": {image.basename} ({image.width}x{image.height})

      Hello There Guys.

      I am in the process of getting into making my first modules for PW and i had a question for you PHP and PW gurus in here.

      I was wondering how i could use an external library, lets say TwitterOAuth in my PW module.
      Link to library

      Would the code below be correct or how would i go about this:
      <?PHP namespace ProcessWire; /* load the TwitterOAuth library from my Module folder */ require "twitteroauth/autoload.php"; use Abraham\TwitterOAuth\TwitterOAuth; class EyeTwitter extends WireData,TwitterOAuth implements Module { /* vars */ protected $twConnection; /* extend parent TwitterOAuth contructor $connection = new TwitterOAuth(CONSUMER_KEY, CONSUMER_SECRET, $access_token, $access_token_secret); */ public function myTwitterConnection ($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret) { /* save the connection for use later */ $this->twConnection = TwitterOAuth::__construct($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret); } } ?> Am i on the right trail here or i am barking up the wrong tree?
      I don´t need a complete solution, i just wonder if i am including the external library the right way.
      If not, then give me a few hint´s and i will figure it out.

      Thanks a bunch.

      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 "http://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.
      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.
      PW module directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/auto-fb-post/ Github: https://github.com/kastrind/AutoFbPost   Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is utilized.

      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup and InputfieldRuntimeMarkup
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-runtime-markup/
      GitHub: https://github.com/kongondo/FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup
      As of 11 May 2019 ProcessWire versions earlier than 3.x are not supported
      This module allows for custom markup to be dynamically (PHP) generated and output within a page's edit screen (in Admin).
      The value for the fieldtype is generated at runtime. No data is saved in the database. The accompanying InputfieldRuntimeMarkup is only used to render/display the markup in the page edit screen.
      The field's value is accessible from the ProcessWire API in the frontend like any other field, i.e. it has access to $page and $pages.
      The module was commissioned/sponsored by @Valan. Although there's certainly other ways to achieve what this module does, it offers a dynamic and flexible alternative to generating your own markup in a page's edit screen whilst also allowing access to that markup in the frontend. Thanks Valan!
      Although access to ProcessWire's Fields' admin pages is only available to Superusers, this Fieldtype will evaluate and run the custom PHP Code entered and saved in the field's settings (Details tab). Utmost care should therefore be taken in making sure your code does not perform any CRUD operations!! (unless of course that's intentional) The value for this fieldtype is generated at runtime and thus no data is stored in the database. This means that you cannot directly query a RuntimeMarkup field from $pages->find(). Usage and API
      Enter your custom PHP snippet in the Details tab of your field (it is RECOMMENDED though that you use wireRenderFile() instead. See example below). Your code can be as simple or as complicated as you want as long as in the end you return a value that is not an array or an object or anything other than a string/integer.
      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup has access to $page (the current page being edited/viewed) and $pages. 
      A very simple example.
      return 'Hello'; Simple example.
      return $page->title; Simple example with markup.
      return '<h2>' . $page->title . '</h2>'; Another simple example with markup.
      $out = '<h1>hello '; $out .= $page->title; $out .= '</h1>'; return $out; A more advanced example.
      $p = $pages->get('/about-us/')->child('sort=random'); return '<p>' . $p->title . '</p>'; An even more complex example.
      $str =''; if($page->name == 'about-us') { $p = $page->children->last(); $str = "<h2><a href='{$p->url}'>{$p->title}</a></h2>"; } else { $str = "<h2><a href='{$page->url}'>{$page->title}</a></h2>"; } return $str; Rather than type your code directly in the Details tab of the field, it is highly recommended that you placed all your code in an external file and call that file using the core wireRenderFile() method. Taking this approach means you will be able to edit your code in your favourite text editor. It also means you will be able to type more text without having to scroll. Editing the file is also easier than editing the field. To use this approach, simply do:
      return wireRenderFile('name-of-file');// file will be in /site/templates/ If using ProcessWire 3.x, you will need to use namespace as follows:
      return ProcessWire\wireRenderFile('name-of-file'); How to access the value of RuntimeMarkup in the frontend (our field is called 'runtime_markup')
      Access the field on the current page (just like any other field)
      echo $page->runtime_markup; Access the field on another page
      echo $pages->get('/about-us/')->runtime_markup; Screenshots
