I'm a new to website building. Learned some CRASH course of js,jquery,php. Then I found CMS. Still learning around forum, youtube....
Anyway, please help me with some beginer questions:
1, About template - please correct me if I understand wrong : every page should be (or recommended) built on a template. So if in total I'll have 10 pages, 2 of them have same layout, I'll need 9 templates. And, what fields a page includes, is not defined in page, but defined in the template that page uses.
2, Where to see what modules I've installed? is it in "Modules - Site"?
3, I installed "PageTable Extended", then what? As in a youtube tutorial, it should appear in Setup tab, but it doesn't. What's in there: templates,fields,logs,comments. (I installed "Uikit 3 site_blog profile".)
4, I did a search in Processwire website for the famous "repeater matrix" module, and can not find it, there's a Repeater, as well as a Matrix. Is it not a module?
5, I watched this youtube tuts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHqnLQy9R1A
Anybody familiar with this tuts please help:
After he analysed a target webpage layout he wanted to mimic, he created some fields, some template, then based on those he created a page and input some "content" in there, then clicked "view", it's just some text. So, here comes my question, he copied a folder "assets" (subfolders are: css,fonts,js,img) over, then the page have the appearance/layout he wanted to mimic. Where does that assets folder come from?
Appreciate any help.
I've created a set of modules for importing (manipulating and displaying) data from external resources. A key requirement was to handle large (100k+) number of pages easily.
import data from CSV and XML sources in the background (using Tasker) purge, update or overwrite existing pages using selectors user configurable input <-> field mappings on-the-fly data conversion and composition (e.g. joining CSV columns into a single field) download external resources (files, images) during import handle page references by any (even numeric) fields How it works
You can upload CSV or XML files to DataSet pages and specify import rules in their description.
The module imports the content of the file and creates/updates child pages automatically.
How to use it
Create a DataSet page that stores the source file. The file's description field specifies how the import should be done:
After saving the DataSet page an import button should appear below the file description.
When you start the import the DataSet module creates a task (executed by Tasker) that will import the data in the background.
You can monitor its execution and check its logs for errors.
See the module's wiki for more details.
The module was already used in three projects to import and handle large XML and CSV datasets. It has some rough edges and I'm sure it needs improvement so comments are welcome.
TemplateEnginePug (formally TemplateEngineJade)
This module adds Pug templates to the TemplateEngineFactory. It uses https://github.com/pug-php/pug to render templates.
doctype html html(lang='en') head meta(http-equiv='content-type', content='text/html; charset=utf-8') title= $page->title link(rel='stylesheet', type='text/css', href=$config->urls->templates . 'styles/main.css') body include header.pug h1= $page->title if $page->editable() p: a(href=$page->editURL) Edit Project on GitHub: github.com/dreerr/TemplateEnginePug
Project in modules directory: modules.processwire.com/modules/template-engine-pug/
For common problems/features/questions about the Factory, use the TemplateEngineFactory thread.

Pages At Bottom
Keeps selected pages at the bottom of their siblings.
A "bottom page" will stay at the bottom even if it is drag-sorted to a different location or another page is drag-sorted below it (after Page List is refreshed the bottom page will still be at the bottom).
Newly added sibling pages will not appear below a bottom page.
The module also prevents the API methods $pages->sort() and $pages->insertAfter() from affecting the position of bottom pages.
Note: the module only works when the sort setting for children on the parent page/template is "Manual drag-n-drop".
Because you want some pages to always be at the bottom of their siblings for one reason or another. And someone requested it. 🙂
Install the Pages At Bottom module.
Select one or more pages to keep at the bottom of their siblings. If you select more than one bottom page per parent then their sort order in the page list will be the same as the sort order in the module config.

Another little admin helper module...
Template Field Widths
Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.
When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
Install the Template Field Widths module.
You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.
