Remove Blocks

A textformatter module for ProcessWire that removes blocks of text/markup between configurable delimiters from output. This allows you to "comment out" blocks of text/markup so they remain present in the field but are not shown in the front-end output.

This can be handy if content needs to be removed temporarily and will later be reinstated. Or you could use a commented block as a placeholder to indicate to an editor where some content should be added.

Installation

Install the Remove Blocks module.

Configure the open and close delimiters if needed. The default open delimiter is {{ and the default close delimiter is }}. Tip: don't use delimiter characters that CKEditor will encode to HTML entities, e.g. >.

Usage

Add the Remove Blocks textformatter to one or more fields.

Add the open and close delimiters around any content that you want to be removed from output.

Thanks for sharing! This is a dead simple but really great idea! Have you thought of supporting clients – who are generally unable / do not care to memorize features like this – by optionally adding a CKEditor button in order to add/remove the delimiters? I have two of those buttons in mind:

1. simply adds/removes delimiters of selected block(s)
2. adds/removes delimiters around the selected block(s) but also clones it, putting a copy of it right below the selected part of the text.

The second point is for a use case of a simple "draft" feature: when an already published page is being edited, one could work on rewriting  a paragraph – for example –  and save the page before the original version is removed and the new paragraph version is published by removing the delimiters too.

I like idea 1 - will explore that.

Idea 2 I don't think is necessary - even technophobes know how to copy/paste text if they want to duplicate it.

🙂 You are most probably right, however they might find it more "streamlined" if it can be performed with one click only.  Anyway, thanks for considering!

@Robin S  Useful textformatter in case of multiline content. If you want to hide text without linebreaks you can also use Core TextformatterMarkdownExtra:

Cool, I didn't know that one.

That syntax works for a plain textarea field, however none of the variants are working for me in a CKEditor field. Probably the HTML tags prevent the normal markdown parsing.

could it be that this module (that i would really like to use!) does not work on multi-lingual installations?

I can't think of any reason it wouldn't work on multi-language fields. What specifically is not working for you?

Double-check that you have added the Remove Blocks textformatter to the field in question...

...and you have placed your delimiters around the content you want removed.

@Robin S, off course it works. Sorry – i did not include it among the textformatters. When rechecking why and re-reading the installation notes, I did not misunderstood the sentence "Add the Remove Blocks textformatter to one or more fields.", thinking that it refers to the use, the curly braces.

Thanks for your help!

      TrelloWire
      This is a module that allows you to automatically create Trello cards for ProcessWire pages and update them when the pages are updated. This allows you to setup connected workflows. Card properties and change handling behaviour can be customized through the extensive module configuration. Every action the module performs is hookable, so you can modify when and how cards are created as much as you need to. The module also contains an API-component that makes it easy to make requests to the Trello API and build your own connected ProcessWire-Trello workflows.
      Features
      All the things the module can do for you without any custom code: Create a new card on Trello whenever a page is added or published (you can select applicable templates). Configure the target board, target list, name and description for new cards. Add default labels and checklists to the card. Update the card whenever the page is updated (optional). When the status of the card changes (published / unpublished, hidden / unhidden, trashed / restored or deleted), move the card to a different list or archive or delete it (configurable). You can extend this through hooks in many ways: Modifiy when and how cards are created. Modify the card properties (Target board & list, title, description, et c.) before they are sent to Trello. Create your own workflows by utilizing an API helper class with many convenient utility methods to access the Trello API directly. Feedback & Future Plans
      Let me know what you think! In particular:
      If you find any bugs report them here or on Github, I'll try to fix them. This module was born out of a use-case for a client project where we manage new form submissions through Trello. I'm not sure how many use-cases there are for this module. If you do use it, tell me about it! The Trello API is pretty extensive, I'll try to add some more helper methods to the TrelloWireApi class (let me know if you need anything in particular). I'll think about how the module can support different workflows that include Twig – talk to me if you have a use-case! Next steps could be a dashboard to manage pages that are connected to a Trello card, or a new section in the settings tab to manage the Trello connection. But it depends on whether there is any interest in this 🙂 Links

      Process Cache Control
      This module provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Clear the ProCache page render cache (if your site is using ProCache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Plans for improvements
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      PrevNextTabs Module
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/PrevNextTabs
      Processwire helper modules for adding page navigation within the editor.
      Overview
      This is a very simple module that adds Previous and Next links inline with the tabs on the page editor. Hovering over the tab shows the title of the previous or next page (using the admin's built in jqueryUI tooltips.)
      Usage
      This module is typically used during development where you or your editors need to traverse through pages for the purpose of proofing, flagging and/or commenting. Rather than returning to the page tree or lister, they can navigate with these links.
      Warnings
      If you are using PW version 2.6.1 or later, the system will prevent you from leaving the page if you have unsaved edits.
      For earlier versions, to avoid accidentally losing changes made to a page that might occur if a user accidentally clicks on one of these, make sure to have the Form Save Reminder module installed.
