Alter the output of Page::render

Recommended Posts

How can I change the output of `Page::render`?

I've created a hook before page::render, but when I set the $event->return to something else, my whole page is replaced with that value.

For example:

 

public function beforePageRender(HookEvent $event)
{
    $event->return = 'blaat';
}

This will cause my whole page to be nothing more than just 'blaat'.

What I want, is that my menu, footer etc. are still visible but only the content of that page is replaced.

I don't think you need to use a Hook for this. Since ProcessWire does not output any markup, you can echo whatever you want to be your content, whether it is from another page or another field or hard coded, or whatever. A couple of examples

$out = $page->title;
$out .= $page->summary;// some text field;
if($page->name == 'my-different-page') {
	$page->body = 'Some custom Content';// @note: overwriting body field content
	// or if grabbing from some other page
	//$settings = $pages->get('/path/to/other/page');
	//$out .= $settings->extraContentTextField;
}

$out .= $page->body;

echo $out;

Written quickly, pseudo code, etc...

You need to hook after not before.

Okay, and then? Because so far I only managed to get the full html page while I just want to reaplce $page->body (as an example).

Yes, I know that, but that is in a template file. I want to alter it without using a template file as it should only be altered under specified conditions.

You can use str_replace() or preg_replace() but you can also modify fields in /site/ready.php since you can overwrite fields value:

$page->title = 'Custom title';

That looks like an uggly hack since that could be any page? Wouldn't it be way better to perform such logic in a module instead of a template file?

It's only an example that you can override values,  it's up to you to restrict to a specific page using if($page->id) or whatever.

I still think it's more ugly than using a hook because if you get more of these exceptions to add to this file it becomes fat and less readable about what it does.

I found out that I just need to get a hook on \ProcessWire\TemplateFile::setFilename, but unfortunately that isn't a hookable method:/

Maybe you should post what your actual goal is, that would possibly generate more proper answers.

Well it's in my first post:

What I want, is that my menu, footer etc. are still visible but only the content of that page is replaced.

I want to have a hook method in which I alter the content of the body based on a few conditions, but I don't want to replace the full HTML, only the content of the page, so that my menu, footer etc are still visible.

$this->addHookBefore('Page::render', function($event) {
    $page = $event->object;
    // use whatever condition suits your needs
    if($page->id == 1234) $page->body = 'blaat';
});

      Although the PW backend is really intuitive, ever so often my clients need some assistance. Be it they are not so tech savvy or they are not working in the backend often.
      For those cases it is nice to make some help videos available to editors. This is what this module does.
      ProcessHelpVideos Module
      A Process module to display help videos for the ProcessWire CMS. It can be used to make help videos (screencasts) available to content editors.
      This module adds a 'Help Videos" section to the ProcessWire backend. The help videos are accessible through an automatically created page in the Admin page tree. You can add your help videos as pages in the page tree. The module adds a hidden page to the page tree that acts as parent page for the help video pages. All necessary fields and templates will be installed automatically. If there are already a CKEditor field and/or a file field for mp4 files installed in the system, the module will use those. Otherwise it will create the necessary fields. Also the necessary templates for the parent help videos page and it's children are created on module install. The module installs a permission process-helpvideos. Every user role that should have access to the help video section, needs this permission. I use the help video approach on quite a few production sites. It is stable so far and well received by site owners/editors. Up until now I installed required fields, templates and pages manually and then added the module. Now I added all this logic to the install method of the module and it should be ready to share.
      The module and further description on how to use it is available on github: https://github.com/gebeer/ProcessHelpVideos
      If you like to give it a try, I am happy to receive your comments/suggestions here.

      A module created in response to the topic here:
      Page List Select Multiple Quickly
      Modifies PageListSelectMultiple to allow you to select multiple pages without the tree closing every time you select a page.
      The screencast says it all:

      Hello all,
      sharing my new module FieldtypeImagePicker. It provides a configurable input field for choosing any type of image from a predefined folder.
      The need for it came up because a client had a custom SVG icon set and I wanted the editors to be able to choose an icon in the page editor.
      It can also be used to offer a choice of images that are used site-wide without having to upload them to individual pages.
      There are no image manipulation methods like with the native PW image field.
      Module and full description can be found on github https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImagePicker
      Kudos to @Martijn Geerts. I used his module FieldTypeSelectFile as a base to build upon.
      Here's how the input field looks like in the page editor:

      Hope it can be of use to someone.
      If you like to give it a try, I'm happy to hear your comments or suggestions for improvement. Eventually this will go in the module directory soon, too.

      @Sergio asked about the pdf creation process in the showcase thread about my 360° feedback/survey tool and so I went ahead and set my little pdf helper module to public.

      FieldtypeFontIconPicker
      Supported Icon Libraries
      FontAwesome 4.7.0 Uikit 3.0.34 IonicIcons 2.0.1 Cahangelog
      NOTE: Module store data without prefix, you need to add "prefix" when you want to show your icon on front-end, because some of front-end frameworks using font-awesome with different "prefix".
      Module will search site/modules/**/configs/IconPicker.*.php and site/templates/IconPicker.*.php paths for FieldtypeFontIconPicker config files.
      All config files need to return a PHP ARRAY like examples.
      Example config file : create your own icon set.
      File location is site/configs/IconPicker.example.php
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * IconPicker : Custom Icons */ return [ "name" => "my-custom-icons", "title" => "My Custom Icon Set", "version" => "1.0.0", "styles" => array( wire("config")->urls->templates . "dist/css/my-custom-icons.css" ), "scripts" => array( wire("config")->urls->templates . "dist/js/my-custom-icons.js" ), "categorized" => true, "attributes" => array(), "icons" => array( "brand-icons" => array( "title" => "Brand Icons", "icons" => array( "google", "facebook", "twitter", "instagram" ) ), "flag-icons" => array( "title" => "Flag Icons", "icons" => array( "tr", "gb", "us", "it", "de", "nl", "fr" ) ) ) ]; Example config file : use existing and extend it.
      File location is site/configs/IconPicker.altivebir.php
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * IconPicker : Existing & Extend */ $resource = include wire("config")->paths->siteModules . "FieldtypeFontIconPicker/configs/IconPicker.uikit.php"; $url = wire("config")->urls->templates . "dist"; $resource["scripts"] = array_merge($resource["scripts"], ["{$url}/js/Altivebir.Icon.min.js"]); $resource["icons"]["flag-icons"] = [ "title" => "Flag Icons", "icons" => array("tr", "en", "fr", "us", "it", "de") ]; $resource["icons"]["brand-icons"]["icons"] = array_merge($resource["icons"]["brand-icons"]["icons"], array( "altivebir" )); return $resource; After you add your custom config file, you will see your config file on library select box. Library Title (Location Folder Name).

      If your library categorized and if you have categorized icons set like uikit and fontawesome libraries, you will have category limitation options per icon field or leave it empty for allow all categories (default).

      Example : output
      if ($icon = $page->get("iconField")) { echo "<i class='prefix-{$icon}' />"; } MarkupFontIconPicker Usage
      // MarkupFontIconPicker::render(YourIconField=string, Options=array) echo MarkupFontIconPicker::render($page->YourIconField, [ 'prefix' => 'uk-icon-', // Icon class prefix, if you have different prefix, default is : "fa fa-" 'tag' => 'span', // Icon tag default is : "i" 'class' => 'fa-lg', // If you have extra cutom classes, for example : icons sizes, Array or Sting value 'style' => 'your custom styles if you have' // Array or String Value ]); Theme support
