PageTable Field and Frontend Editing Layout


Recommended Posts

Hello! I use PW 3.0.98 and I have frontend editing enabled for a PageTable Field. Somehow, when I double click the field in the frontend, the iframe in wich the content is displayed is very small (see screenshot). I couldn't find out if thats some CSS conflict or another problem. Any suggestions? Thanks, Andrej

Hi matjazp! Thanks for your reply! I tried both (the «edit» part and PW 3.0.111 DEV) but it looks the same. So maybe this issue is specific to my setup … I use Zurb Foundation too, maybe there is some conflict there …

Although I disabled all CSS and it still looked the same (Safari, Firefox and Chrome).

Try to find the culprit in the inspector: Is a CSS-rule overriding another one? Which CSS causes this?

If you see inline-styles:

a) look at the rendered source via inspector (CTRL + SHIFT + C)

b) compare it to the raw HTML source-code, as it is being delivered by the server, i.e. before any JS had a chance to manipulate the DOM (before any window.load or document.ready has been applied). In Chrome, the keyboard shortcut is CTRL + U.

If you don't see any inline-styles in b), it means some JS is triggered to alter the iFrame styles (or something near there). CTRL + SHIFT + J

And of course, check the console for JS errors or warnings.

Hi dragan! Thanks a lot for your help! Ich checked the source code and found inline styles setting the iframe's width to «auto»:

<iframe class="pw-modal-window ui-dialog-content ui-widget-content" frameborder="0" src="/preview/backend/page/edit/?id=1044&amp;fields=events&amp;modal=1" id="pw-modal-window-1" style="width: auto; min-height: 0px; max-height: none; height: 813.03125px;"></iframe>

I realized that the only thing that prevents the error is to remove jquery.js from the head section:

<script src="<?php echo $config->urls->templates?>node_modules/jquery/dist/jquery.js"></script>

I have no idea how / why this happens. The version of the linked jquery is 3.3.1.

Edit: here is the complete source code with all js and stylesheets removed except for the mentioned jquery link. This still produces the bad layout:

<!doctype html>
<html class="no-js" lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="ie=edge">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <script src="<?php echo $config->urls->templates?>node_modules/jquery/dist/jquery.js"></script>
    <a id="button"><i class="fas fa-arrow-up fa-lg"></i></a>
    <a href="#" class="menu-button" id="menuButton" data-toggle="offCanvasRightSplit2"><span class="burger-icon"></span></a>
    <div class="grid-x">
      <div class="cell">
        <h1 id="logotype"><a href="<?php echo $pages->get("/")->url; ?>">Zimoun</a></h1>
    <div class="grid-x">
      <div class="cell content">
        <edit fields="events">
        <h1>Current and upcoming</h1>
        $today = time();
        foreach($page->children("include=hidden")->find("date_to>$today") as $event) {
          if($event->event_url) {
          $website = "<br><a class='event_website' href='{$event->event_url}' target='_blank'>Website</a>";
          else $website = "";
          if($event->date_from != $event->date_to) {
            echo "<p>$event->title<br>$event->event_type, {$event->date_from}–{$event->date_to}$website</p>";
          echo  "<p>$event->title<br>$event->event_type, {$event->date_to}$website</p>";
        <div class="disclaimer_events">All information based on current knowledge and subject to change.</div>
    <div class="off-canvas position-right" id="offCanvasRightSplit2" data-off-canvas data-close-on-click="true">
      <?php include "nav.inc"; ?>

Well, it's definitely a problem with jquery 3.3.1. I replaced it with version 2.2.4 via CND and now everything looks good. I use Zurb Foundation, but since the error still occurs even after removing all styles and scripts except for jquery, it can't be related to Foundation, right? Thank you all for helping!
