Why don't you have a text field in the category page you just created? After created, you can click the title (if using ASM Select for example) to open the page and add more content.

You could also use a Page Table (ProFields), available in ProcessWire's core and freely installable from the backend.
You can select a parent for the items (unlike repeaters), enter the table fields you want to display in the administration panel...

You could perhaps also use a Page Reference Field, choose a way of selecting that suits you, select a parent page with children pages that only have the fields you need...

Hello,

I have created a standard field type as userphone , then I added this field to the User template. I created a phone field type using Phone Field module. I added this field to the User template also.

Now I used the below to create a test user

 $u = new User();
$u->of(false);
$u->name = "saarun";
$u->email = "saarunthomas@example.com";
$u->pass = "123456";
$u->Phone = 9446196667;
$u->userphone = 9446196667;
$u->headline = "hello there";
$u->paid=1;
$u->addRole("registered");
$u->save();
$u->of(true);

and I tried to out put as below

     $item = $users->get("saarun");
echo $item->email;
echo $item->Phone;
echo $item->paid;
echo $item->headline;
echo $item->userphone;

and I got the output a below.  Neither the userphone value nor the Phone value are output ... what am I doing here wrong  ? pls help

What does tracy debugger show:

$u = wire('users')->get("name=saarun");
d($u);
d($u->Phone); // dump content of your fields

When you view the user while in admin, what does that page look like? By that I mean you should see all the fields for the user template and the field's current values. If the field (for example, Phone) is empty, then there is an issue with saving the data to the page. Most likely the data is not the correct format.

Do the logs display any information?

Hello @rick

 

thank you for replying me. I will explain step by step what I have done and what is my requirement.

1. I have a user registration form built on Login/Register module in which I need to save the user telephone along with username/password. As a default, login/Register module only have email, password fields in the registration form. so I need a phone number field there too.

2. so I searched and found there is a module called Phone Field type, I installed and created a new field using that type. I dont need any fancy feature, just need 10 digits without any country code or extensions

3. then I added this new field to the user template, then I opened the Login/Register module configuration and added those this phone field

4. I saved everything, and I went to registration form, in which I can see the new phone field entering form

5. I registered, with email, pass and phone number

6. But when I tried to output the phone number its empty, so I went to the users page in admin section and check if the number is saved. But its not saved.

7. so I tried to save it from the admin/access/users page, and then I checked it via outputing, now its working. So the field is not getting saved from the registration step.
8. so I thought this must be some conflict with login/register module and the phone field type module.

9. so I created a new standard Integer field, and labelled it for phone

10. I added this new field to user template > then login/user field to the registration page

11. Before I register from frontend, I tried to save the phone number from the admin/access page but I got an SQL error

Error saving field "userphone" - SQLSTATE[22003]: Numeric value out of range: 1264 Out of range value for column 'data' at row 1 +1

Now I am clueless, what to next ?

How do I create a standard integer phone number field ? or why  the Login/Register module is not taking the phone type

Hi @JeevanisM,

It is difficult to say what the problem is without having the code you are using. Based on what you describe, if the value of the phone number is not being saved from your form, then it may be something as simple as a misspelled field name. Please post your registration form code so that we can better assist you in resolving this issue.

      Hi there
      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...
      Solution???
      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 :)

      Hi everyone.
      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?

      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,
      Daniel

      A new module that hasn't had a lot of testing yet. Please do your own testing before deploying on any production website.
      Custom Paths
      Allows any page to have a custom path/URL.
      Note: Custom Paths is incompatible with the core LanguageSupportPageNames module. I have no experience working with LanguageSupportPageNames or multi-language sites in general so I'm not in a position to work out if a fix is possible. If anyone with multi-language experience can contribute a fix it would be much appreciated!
      Screenshot

      Usage
      The module creates a field named custom_path on install. Add the custom_path field to the template of any page you want to set a custom path for. Whatever path is entered into this field determines the path and URL of the page ($page->path and $page->url). Page numbers and URL segments are supported if these are enabled for the template, and previous custom paths are managed by PagePathHistory if that module is installed.
      The custom_path field appears on the Settings tab in Page Edit by default but there is an option in the module configuration to disable this if you want to position the field among the other template fields.
      If the custom_path field is populated for a page it should be a path that is relative to the site root and that starts with a forward slash. The module prevents the same custom path being set for more than one page.
      The custom_path value takes precedence over any ProcessWire path. You can even override the Home page by setting a custom path of "/" for a page.
      It is highly recommended to set access controls on the custom_path field so that only privileged roles can edit it: superuser-only is recommended.
      It is up to the user to set and maintain suitable custom paths for any pages where the module is in use. Make sure your custom paths are compatible with ProcessWire's $config and .htaccess settings, and if you are basing the custom path on the names of parent pages you will probably want to have a strategy for updating custom paths if parent pages are renamed or moved.
      Example hooks to Pages::saveReady
      You might want to use a Pages::saveReady hook to automatically set the custom path for some pages. Below are a couple of examples.
      1. In this example the start of the custom path is fixed but the end of the path will update dynamically according to the name of the page:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'my_template') { $page->custom_path = "/some-custom/path-segments/$page->name/"; } }); 2. The Custom Paths module adds a new Page::realPath method/property that can be used to get the "real" ProcessWire path to a page that might have a custom path set. In this example the custom path for news items is derived from the real ProcessWire path but a parent named "news-items" is removed:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'news_item') { $page->custom_path = str_replace('/news-items/', '/', $page->realPath); } }); Caveats
      The custom paths will be used automatically for links created in CKEditor fields, but if you have the "link abstraction" option enabled for CKEditor fields (Details > Markup/HTML (Content Type) > HTML Options) then you will see notices from MarkupQA warning you that it is unable to resolve the links.
      Installation
      Install the Custom Paths module.
      Uninstallation
      The custom_path field is not automatically deleted when the module is uninstalled. You can delete it manually if the field is no longer needed.

      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.
      Thanks!
