Processwire alternative template

Recommended Posts


I'm developing a project using processwire and I would like to know if processwire offers somekind of approach using an alternative php template file as url parameter?


I have a template with a text field and a file field. When user clicks on the content, he will see the text and when he clicks on specific button, will show a pdf in file field of same content and render it using a flipbook plugin.

So I tought something like this

Content: http://example.com/content/page-of-content

PDF: http://example.com/content/page-of-content?template=flipbook

Its possible?

I wouldn't even think about such an invitation for performing dangerous things through a regular get request like invoking "any" templatefile.

If you wish to generate different output depending on a get parameter you are of course free to do so (there is $input->get() to easily retrieve get parameters). Just call a function or execute another conditional block in your template.
