Hey, I'm new and I created a simple module for tagging pages because I didn't found a module for it (sadly this is not a core feature). This module is licensed under the GPL3 and cames with absolutly no warranty at all. You should test the module before using it in production environments. Currently it's an alpha release. if you like the module or have ideas for improvements feel free to post a comment. Currently this fieldtype is only compatible with the Inputfield I've created to because I haven't found  an Inputfield yet, that returns arrays from a single html input.

Greetings Sebi2020

Hello @Sebi2020 , welcome to the forums! 

Could you explain a little further? How your module differs from the standard way of creating tags as pages and using a page field to link the tags to other pages?

Nice one @Sebi2020!

Maybe you could look at enhancing the module by allowing the configuration of some Tagify options within the field settings. In particular I'm thinking it would be good to be able to set the "whitelist" and "maxTags" options.

@Robin S Thank you for your feedback. In fact I planned to add this features in the next release. I also planned to add autocomplete suggestions based on the already existing tags. 

@Sergio My intention was to store tags in page fields instead of creating a page for every tag you add. By doing so you only need one page/template whcih displays all pages with a given tag. As far as I know the philosophy behind ProcessWire is "Everything is a page" but I don't like to clutter my tree with a page for every tag and in my opinion it's very time consuming to create a page for every tag. 

@flydev Thanks!

Currently I don't know the API very well so I don't know if there is a way to fetch all entries of a given field and not just for the current page.  I would prefer to use the API instead of using the DatabasePDO class.

Lots of solutions for this from a simple API foreach, to the Batch Child Editor module or even this http://modules.processwire.com/modules/admin-actions-unordered-list-to-pages/

Everyone baulks at the everything is a page at first, but the benefits become apparent and it's actually very elegant and more importantly very flexible if you need to change things down the road.

Not saying there isn't a place for what you have built - just say that there are multiple way to skin a cat 🙂

Most of the page fields (like autocomplete) allow creating new pages on the fly, while editing the actual article page. 

But I totally see place for modules like this (they are always faster to configure for example).

I just released version 2 of InputfieldTagify:

You can download the zip file from Github:
https://github.com/Sebi2020/InputfieldTagify/releases/tag/v0.0.2

@Robin S

It now supports configuration of predefined whitelist entries (in this case auto-suggestions) and allows you to enable additional delimiters like spaces and semicolons. I plan to include a option for specifying limits on tags in the next release.

Thanks for the updates!

I spotted a few little issues in InputfieldTagify...

There are quotes missing around version, autoload and singular in getModuleInfo(): https://github.com/Sebi2020/InputfieldTagify/blob/354acf86ac88baa8c257523cd093ec202c573fe0/InputfieldTagify.module#L18-L20

PHP gives a warning that InputfieldTagify::renderReady() and InputfieldTagify::___processInput() should be compatible with the methods of the Inputfield class that the module extends.

So for renderReady() I think you want:

public function renderReady(Inputfield $parent = null, $renderValueMode = false) {
	$this->addClass("tagify-input");
	return parent::renderReady($parent, $renderValueMode);
}

And for ___processInput():

public function ___processInput(WireInputData $input) {
    //...

Why do you think there must be quotes? ProcessWire  is happy with booleans and integers. Even the core-modules are written in the same way:

		return array(
			'title' => 'Text',
			'version' => 100,
			'summary' => 'Field that stores a single line of text',
			'permanent' => true, 
			);

from wire/modules/Fieldtype/FieldtypeText.module

}

public function ___processInput(WireInputData $input) {
    //...

 

When do you get this warnings? I cannot reproduce that (with E_ALL enabled in php.ini). 

Which PHP Version did you use? With my Version 7.0.28 everything seems to be fine.

I'm talking about the array keys, not the values. If you use a string as an array key the string has to be in quotes or else it is interpreted as a constant. In the FieldtypeText example you show the keys are correctly within quotes.

I recommend installing Tracy Debugger - it is good at picking up errors that can otherwise be missed.

Oh this was a careless of mine. Thank you for your feedback.

I've just uploaded a new commit which should fix these warnings. I haven't enabled debug mode causing the warnings to be hidden.

      This module allows you to automatically rename file (including image) uploads according to a configurable format
      This module lets you define as many rules as you need to determine how uploaded files will be named and you can have different rules for different pages, templates, fields, and file extensions, or one rule for all uploads. Renaming works for files uploaded via the admin interface and also via the API, including images added from remote URLs.   Github: https://github.com/adrianbj/CustomUploadNames
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-custom-upload-names/
      Renaming Rules
      The module config allows you to set an unlimited number of Rename Rules. You can define rules to specific fields, templates, pages, and file extensions. If a rule option is left blank, the rule with be applied to all fields/templates/pages/extensions. Leave Filename Format blank to prevent renaming for a specific field/template/page combo, overriding a more general rule. Rules are processed in order, so put more specific rules before more general ones. You can drag to change the order of rules as needed. The following variables can be used in the filename format: $page, $template, $field, and $file. For some of these (eg. $field->description), if they haven't been filled out and saved prior to uploading the image, renaming won't occur on upload, but will happen on page save (could be an issue if image has already been inserted into RTE/HTML field before page save). Some examples: $page->title mysite-{$template->name}-images $field->label $file->description {$page->name}-{$file->filesize}-kb prefix-[Y-m-d_H-i-s]-suffix (anything inside square brackets is is considered to be a PHP date format for the current date/time) randstring[n] (where n is the number of characters you want in the string) ### (custom number mask, eg. 001 if more than one image with same name on a page. This is an enhanced version of the automatic addition of numbers if required) If 'Rename on Save' is checked files will be renamed again each time a page is saved (admin or front-end via API). WARNING: this setting will break any direct links to the old filename, which is particularly relevant for images inserted into RTE/HTML fields. The Filename Format can be defined using plain text and PW $page variable, for example: mysite-{$page->path} You can preserve the uploaded filename for certain rules. This will allow you to set a general renaming rule for your entire site, but then add a rule for a specific page/template/field that does not rename the uploaded file. Just simply build the rule, but leave the Filename Format field empty. You can specify an optional character limit (to nearest whole word) for the length of the filename - useful if you are using $page->path, $path->name etc and have very long page names - eg. news articles, publication titles etc. NOTE - if you are using ProcessWire's webp features, be sure to use the useSrcExt because if you have jpg and png files on the same page and your rename rules result in the same name, you need to maintain the src extension so they are kept as separate files.
      $config->webpOptions = array(     'useSrcExt' => false, // Use source file extension in webp filename? (file.jpg.webp rather than file.webp) ); Acknowledgments
      The module config settings make use of code from Pete's EmailToPage module and the renaming function is based on this code from Ryan: http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3299-ability-to-define-convention-for-image-and-file-upload-names/?p=32623 (also see this post for his thoughts on file renaming and why it is the lazy way out - worth a read before deciding to use this module). 
       
       
      NOTE:
      This should not be needed on most sites, but I work with lots of sites that host PDFs and photos/vectors that are available for download and I have always renamed the files on upload because clients will often upload files with horrible meaningless filenames like:

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.56
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy! :)
