Variations: Pro Module for (Product) Variations & Attributes

Recommended Posts

Variations

Released 29 May 2017

Variations is a simple yet powerful commercial ProcessWire module that allows website editors to create attributes and their values and from those generate variations of any entity, most notably products.

The module consists of  FieldtypeVariations and InputfieldVariations as well as a ProcessVariations for managing variations configurations and attributes.
 
Setting up the field is quite easy.
 
First, create a field of type Variations. Define some custom inputs that will need to be directly edited on the page containing the field, for instance a product price, SKU, etc.
 
Secondly, via the Inputfield, create a couple of attributes.
 
Thirdly, create a variations configuration and add the attributes and values you want in the configuration. Link that variations configuration to your page and the module will automatically generate all possible combinations (variations) of the attribute values in that configuration. These, together with the custom inputs you created when setting up the field will be displayed on the page (e.g. a product page), ready for editing. This makes this module quite unique; variations are defined at the page-level rather than at the field level. This presents lots of possibilities such as infinitely reusable attributes and variations configurations. 
 
For those using Padloper, integration with the e-commerce platform is quite simple as demonstrated in this tutorial. 

The module consists of 4 modules

  1. ProcessVariations
  2. FieldtypeVariations
  3. InputfieldVariations
  4. VariationsCustomTableManager (autoload module, working behind the scenes)

This sounds very interesting. Is it possible to use Variations for downloadable products?

I’m bulding a small webshop with Padloper where i will have around 500 products, each with a lot of variations. These are digital products for download. Setting up the variations with PageTable is quite a mess. That’s why i’m considering using Variations for that.

Please note that, in respect of these subfields, there are no plans to include anything as near exhaustive as what Table does. Meaning, these will likely be limited to TEXT, INT, FLOAT, etc fields, but not complicated Fieldtypes such as Page fields, Repeaters, etc.

Does that mean that the download field can not be included?

Thanks,
Jan

Hi @Jan Fromm and @oma, Sorry I have been away. I'll have to look into Padloper and get back to you.

 

Thanks

Sorry did not get back to you earlier Jan. It seems as well that I misunderstood your question. Please clarify. Are you looking to have a dropdown select or asmSelect or similar for each variation from which you can select and specify a download or downloads for that variation? How are you defining your digital downloads? Is each download a ProcessWire page or are they physical files stored on the server?

      Field Descriptions Extended
      This module enables you to extend field descriptions by dividing short descriptions with a longer text that is revealed in a toggle.
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/field-descriptions-extended/
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/FieldDescriptionsExtended
      Extending your field descriptions using the standard field's description field.
      Once this module is installed, it will automatically search your description field for the presence of 5 dashes (-----).
      Any content above the 5 dashes will be visible and the content below the dashes will be hidden. A 'More...' link will appear at the end of the short description which when clicked will reveal the rest of the description.
      Using Simple Markdown Editor with the description field
      If you have Simple Markdown Editor (InputfieldSimpleMDE) installed, you can enable the field description to have that editor.
      *When using Simple MDE, you can use the button (Insert Horizontal Line) instead of typing 5 dashes. More about SimpleMDE.
      Extending your field descriptions using content from a ProcessWire Page for the field description.
      You may use the content from a ProcessWire page as a field description. This would allow you to easily insert images, links, and use hanna codes.
      To use page content for your field descriptions, please follow these instructions:
      Install Select Fields module (FieldtypeFields) http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-fields/ Create a new field using this field type, e.g. field_select. Add the field to any template you will be using for your field descriptions. Setup your help pages (for example under a settings branch) where you will store the field description content,using the template containing the Field Select. Add content to a page and select the field where that content should show. To show a short text before the link to the longer content, separate them with 5 dashes Be sure to update your settings on this page, first enable page content descriptions,then specify the name of the Select Fields field, template to search, and content field. If you create a field description using this method, please note that the description field must be blank for contexts where you want the page content to appear.
      You can freely use template context for field descriptions, but the Page Content method is not context sensitive and will display under all contexts where the description is blank.
      ----
      original post:
      This is a new module, hope to release soon, which allows extended field descriptions, in currently 2 ways.
      The main feature of the module is that you can have a short description and then a 'more...' link which drops down a longer block of text.
      This is achieved by separating the intro/visible text and the rest with 5 dashes.

      Example setup:

      the 2nd way is if you are using AdminThemeUiKit, you can show extended field instructions in a panel. The content of the panel is edited on a regular PW page. This use case would probably not be that common, but if you had a field that required some extended instructions for how to use, this could be useful; Also, since this allows you to target information and instructions down at the field level, it could reduce the amount of documentation needed on a global level, since it is a lot more context targeted.

      Breadcrumb Dropdowns
      Adds dropdown menus of page edit links to the breadcrumbs in Page Edit.

      Installation
      Install the Breadcrumb Dropdowns module. The module requires ProcessWire >= v3.0.83 and AdminThemeUikit.
      There is a checkbox option in the module config that determines if the breadcrumb dropdowns will include pages that the user does not have permission to edit.
      Features/details
      The module adds an additional breadcrumb item at the end for the currently edited page. That's because I think it's more intuitive for the dropdown under each breadcrumb item to show the item's sibling pages rather than the item's child pages. In the dropdown menus the current page and the current page's parents are highlighted in a crimson colour to make it easier to quickly locate them in case you want to edit the next or previous sibling page. If the option to include uneditable pages is selected then those pages are indicated by a reduced text opacity and the "not-allowed" cursor is shown on hover. There is a limit of 25 sibling pages per dropdown for performance reasons and to avoid the dropdown becoming unwieldy. Incompatibilities
      This module replaces the AdminThemeUikit::renderBreadcrumbs method so will potentially be incompatible with other modules that hook the same method.

      Hey guys, 
      Thought I would share a quick preview of Designme. A module we (Eduardo @elabx and I) are building for visually laying out your templates/edit screens. 🙂
      This is a really quick, zero polish screen grab. FYI. 
      Video #2 - UPDATE
      This new video shows the following features in Designme:
      Re-arranging fields via Drag & Drop Re-sizing fields via Dragging. Adjusting field settings - with live refresh. Working on "hidden" fields while Designme is active. Creating New fields. Deleting fields. Creating/Deleting Tabs. Dragging fields between tabs. Creating fieldsets. Tagging/Un-tagging fields. Fields without headers expand when hovered (like checkboxes). Live filtering of fields in the sidebar. Ability to adjust (all) Template settings without leaving Designme. Template File Tree Editing Template files source code with ACE Editor. Editing Multiple files with ACE Editor. (New Tabs) Saving files. Techie stuff Fields load their own js/css dependancies. *ready to use on creation (*most fields)  Everything happens via Ajax to ProcessPageEdit (via module + hooks). Designme has a JS api that you can use.  All actions trigger events.  We would love any detailed feedback on what you see so far. If you are interested in testing Designme. Let me know below. 🙂
