Short version of question
Let's say I have a page in the admin that contains a field... Is it possible to output the content from that field on another page in the admin? Almost like a reference.
Longer version of question (with example)
A house builder with multiple (60+) developments. They want to be able to create notices/messages that can be added to one or many developments. Handy for things like regional covid lockdowns or temporary office closures due to bad weather.
My approach for the admin editing options:
Add each message to each development
Pros: You edit the message on the development page in context
Cons: Very time consuming and repetitive if the same message needs to be applied to 60+ developments
Control all the messages from one admin page and say which development each message should be applied to
Pros: Easier to add/remove messages to more than one development at a time. Control all messages from one place.
Cons: Content is not added on development page, which is where typical admin users may expect to find it I went for option 2 due to flexibility, and created a page within the admin for global development notices. This contains a repeater with:
Field for message to display Checkbox list of all developments. The user can select which ones to apply each message to It's working really well but the only thing is that if the user goes to a specific development in the admin, the relevant messages aren't displayed in context (as they aren't edited on that page and instead on the global development notices page)... which may cause confusion when a new staff member / content admin tries to edit the text but there is no field when they go to the development admin page where they expect to see it...
I don't require the message(s) to also be editable on the development page, but I wondered if there was a nice way to show it/them somehow. I feel like I am missing something really simple as I'm sure ProcessWire will have a nice way of achieving this, or maybe there are field settings that allow this kind of thing to happen?
Any ideas on approaches or similar experiences would be much appreciated, even if it is just a much simpler example with the content from one field being shown on another admin page to get the ball rolling.
Thanks in advance for any advice :)
12 identical templates but with a small piece of different code: can I use processwire to create a single template?By franciccio-ITALIANO
I've created 12 templates that are the same but each with an extra bit of html code.
The piece of code is as follows:
<div> <div class="box-pf"> <i class="fa fa-map-pin fa-2x fa-red faa-pulse animated"></i> <a href=""> <span class="uk-text-middle"><i>Sonchus oleraceus</i> 'Grespino degli Orti'</span></b> </a> </div> </div> On the third line we read "fa-red."
I created 12 similar templates.
The first template has only one box with fa-red, the last template has 12 boxes with icons of 12 different colors.
So. is there any way to have only 1 template and add, if I want and when I want, a small or big, same or different piece of html code?
Global field with one instance needed: Content of footer should be dynamic and changes should affect all pages at onceBy daniel_puehringer
Hi community, thanks for the great work you do 🙂
I´m looking for a global field which can be used in the footer and has only one instance for all pages. So I´m kind of looking for "One field to rule them all".
Reason for my question: The website I´m currently building has one footer for all pages. The content of the footer should be dynamic - therefore I made a global field which is automatically inserted into each page.
Problem: if I want to change something in the footer, I have to do it for all fields, because each field has it´s own instance.
Question: is it possible to have one global field in which changes the content for the footer of all pages?
In most CMS Systems a simple solution to this is often impossible, I hope that processwire is different 🙂
All the best,

Hello! I've got a single client on Processwire and it's completely foreign to me. I've been able to find most things, but they've asked for a custom designed page with a full width header image/section, and then a body block and a right side bar below the header. They're using a landing page template, so I duplicated that, figured out how to add it in the admin, and assigned it to the page. Nothing. It doesn't change a thing.
I feel like I'm missing something obvious. I've made sure all the fields are the same, I tried to set up the parent/child stuff though this page doesn't have a parent that I can tell (though it's under Landing Pages). If I can get the template to actually kick in, I think I can use a bit of code to check for the hero section and load it at the top. I also made a copy of the widget template and set that to load instead of the original. But again, since my main page template isn't kicking in, neither is the new widget template.
I'd just love some tips on what to check or change to get a landing page to actually render what's in the assigned page template.
Hopefully I've used the correct terminology here to make sense.
Is there a module or other solution to select a template with a preview image? Sometimes it is not that easy to describe a template.
e.g. Template with 3 columns (image, title, content, button) or template for a slider with max. 4 pictures.
Even if it is nice to have a description field for a template, a picture says more than thousand words could describe.
And no, I don't think I could develop something like that. I don't even know where to start.🙄
