Installation

Install the Page Field Info module.

Configuration

In the Input tab of the settings for a Page Reference field...

  • Tick the "Add info tooltips to options" checkbox to enable tooltips for the options in the field. Tooltips are not possible for Select or AsmSelect inputfield types so for those types you would want to tick the next option.
  • Tick the "Append info about selected options" checkbox to append information about the selected options to the bottom of the inputfield. If the Page Reference field is a "multiple pages" field then the info for each selected option will be prefixed with the option label (so the user will know what option each line of info relates to).
  • In the "Info field" dropdown select a text field that will contain information about the page, to be used in the tooltips and appended info. Of course this field should be in the template(s) of the selectable pages for the Page Reference field.

Hook

In most cases the "Info field" will supply the text for the tooltips and appended info, but for advanced usages you can hookPageFieldInfo::getPageInfo() to return the text. For example:

$wire->addHookAfter('PageFieldInfo::getPageInfo', function(HookEvent $event) {
    $page = $event->arguments(0); // The page
    $inputfield = $event->arguments(1); // InputfieldPage
    $field = $event->arguments(2); // The Page Reference field
    $info = $event->return; // Text from the info field, if any
    // Set some custom text as the $event->return...
});

Astounding! I'm installing now on several sites!

Working great so far, had to change line 195 to support textarea, as that's what i use for the info

$text_fields = $this->wire('fields')->find('type=FieldtypeText|FieldtypeTextarea');

Testing the single select now, but noticing that the options don't have the data-info attribute, so there is no way to update the selected option's description by javascript – do you think it is possible to add the data-info to the options on plain selects?

I've added this to v0.1.1.

There are data-info attributes on select options - maybe your browser dev tools don't display those attributes for some reason?

ok got it, i didn't get that for single select you have to check the tooltips option for this to work.. it's working now once i checked that... Maybe the description of that field could be modified to say that it is required to check that box for single select fields...

thanks again!

Sorry, I didn't understand the original issue properly before. You shouldn't have to activate the tooltip option for the append option to work for selects - I've fixed the logic in v0.1.2 so it should work as expected now.

It's working great, i have it on about 20 fields now on 1 current/major project and this going to really make a world of difference in reducing support (calls/emails/trello cards)...

I've noticed the more of these sorts of things i put in the admin (including stuff like Field Descriptions Extended, Context help for templates, and ProcessDocumentation), the more careful clients are to check before wasting my support resources...

      Although the PW backend is really intuitive, ever so often my clients need some assistance. Be it they are not so tech savvy or they are not working in the backend often.
      For those cases it is nice to make some help videos available to editors. This is what this module does.
      ProcessHelpVideos Module
      A Process module to display help videos for the ProcessWire CMS. It can be used to make help videos (screencasts) available to content editors.
      This module adds a 'Help Videos" section to the ProcessWire backend. The help videos are accessible through an automatically created page in the Admin page tree. You can add your help videos as pages in the page tree. The module adds a hidden page to the page tree that acts as parent page for the help video pages. All necessary fields and templates will be installed automatically. If there are already a CKEditor field and/or a file field for mp4 files installed in the system, the module will use those. Otherwise it will create the necessary fields. Also the necessary templates for the parent help videos page and it's children are created on module install. The module installs a permission process-helpvideos. Every user role that should have access to the help video section, needs this permission. I use the help video approach on quite a few production sites. It is stable so far and well received by site owners/editors. Up until now I installed required fields, templates and pages manually and then added the module. Now I added all this logic to the install method of the module and it should be ready to share.
      The module and further description on how to use it is available on github: https://github.com/gebeer/ProcessHelpVideos
      If you like to give it a try, I am happy to receive your comments/suggestions here.

      A module created in response to the topic here:
      Page List Select Multiple Quickly
      Modifies PageListSelectMultiple to allow you to select multiple pages without the tree closing every time you select a page.
      The screencast says it all:

      Hello all,
      sharing my new module FieldtypeImagePicker. It provides a configurable input field for choosing any type of image from a predefined folder.
      The need for it came up because a client had a custom SVG icon set and I wanted the editors to be able to choose an icon in the page editor.
      It can also be used to offer a choice of images that are used site-wide without having to upload them to individual pages.
      There are no image manipulation methods like with the native PW image field.
      Module and full description can be found on github https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImagePicker
      Kudos to @Martijn Geerts. I used his module FieldTypeSelectFile as a base to build upon.
      Here's how the input field looks like in the page editor:

      Hope it can be of use to someone.
      If you like to give it a try, I'm happy to hear your comments or suggestions for improvement. Eventually this will go in the module directory soon, too.

      @Sergio asked about the pdf creation process in the showcase thread about my 360° feedback/survey tool and so I went ahead and set my little pdf helper module to public.

      FieldtypeFontIconPicker
      Supported Icon Libraries
      FontAwesome 4.7.0 Uikit 3.0.34 IonicIcons 2.0.1 Cahangelog
      NOTE: Module store data without prefix, you need to add "prefix" when you want to show your icon on front-end, because some of front-end frameworks using font-awesome with different "prefix".
      Module will search site/modules/**/configs/IconPicker.*.php and site/templates/IconPicker.*.php paths for FieldtypeFontIconPicker config files.
      All config files need to return a PHP ARRAY like examples.
      Example config file : create your own icon set.
      File location is site/configs/IconPicker.example.php
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * IconPicker : Custom Icons */ return [ "name" => "my-custom-icons", "title" => "My Custom Icon Set", "version" => "1.0.0", "styles" => array( wire("config")->urls->templates . "dist/css/my-custom-icons.css" ), "scripts" => array( wire("config")->urls->templates . "dist/js/my-custom-icons.js" ), "categorized" => true, "attributes" => array(), "icons" => array( "brand-icons" => array( "title" => "Brand Icons", "icons" => array( "google", "facebook", "twitter", "instagram" ) ), "flag-icons" => array( "title" => "Flag Icons", "icons" => array( "tr", "gb", "us", "it", "de", "nl", "fr" ) ) ) ]; Example config file : use existing and extend it.
      File location is site/configs/IconPicker.altivebir.php
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * IconPicker : Existing & Extend */ $resource = include wire("config")->paths->siteModules . "FieldtypeFontIconPicker/configs/IconPicker.uikit.php"; $url = wire("config")->urls->templates . "dist"; $resource["scripts"] = array_merge($resource["scripts"], ["{$url}/js/Altivebir.Icon.min.js"]); $resource["icons"]["flag-icons"] = [ "title" => "Flag Icons", "icons" => array("tr", "en", "fr", "us", "it", "de") ]; $resource["icons"]["brand-icons"]["icons"] = array_merge($resource["icons"]["brand-icons"]["icons"], array( "altivebir" )); return $resource; After you add your custom config file, you will see your config file on library select box. Library Title (Location Folder Name).

      If your library categorized and if you have categorized icons set like uikit and fontawesome libraries, you will have category limitation options per icon field or leave it empty for allow all categories (default).

      Example : output
      if ($icon = $page->get("iconField")) { echo "<i class='prefix-{$icon}' />"; } MarkupFontIconPicker Usage
      // MarkupFontIconPicker::render(YourIconField=string, Options=array) echo MarkupFontIconPicker::render($page->YourIconField, [ 'prefix' => 'uk-icon-', // Icon class prefix, if you have different prefix, default is : "fa fa-" 'tag' => 'span', // Icon tag default is : "i" 'class' => 'fa-lg', // If you have extra cutom classes, for example : icons sizes, Array or Sting value 'style' => 'your custom styles if you have' // Array or String Value ]); Theme support
