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 :)
Never really got my head around field groups and it shows, In my module uninstall I think I figured out how to delete a page, then a template and it's fieldgroup so that nothing gets upset. But for fields that belong to templates that need to stoick around I'm still abit stuck to how you would remove the field and when I try I still get:
Unable to delete field '[field name]' because it is in use by these fieldgroups: 'user'
is there a tutorial or best method for removing added fields, pages and templates?
It's been twice this year as a PW developer where clients have asqued me to have a way to put content on specific coordinates of a picture. Something like what image maps are made of. But not necesarly on links, sometimes text, sometimes images and links.
So I've been thinking to build an inputfield for that purpose. But I'm not sure how could it be the most flexible so I can share it in github/modules page.
Ideally it would need to work like a repeater field where you start uploading an image and then adding any custom field like title, url etc. So the user could add multiple elements floating over that image.
Does anybody here know the ideal way to start the arquitecture of something like that? I could just hardcode the fields I need for the website I have to code this month but it would be nice to be something more flexible.
how to get all the subfields of a repeater field generically? I'm not talking about a specific field that I know the name of, that's easy, I'm trying to access them in general in the $fields variable itself.
Better yet, how to access them by type?
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?
