Show field only when page status is published

Recommended Posts


Do anyone know how to show only a field, if the page is published? I tried `status=published` but this did not work. The field keep invisible also when the page is published.

I am not sure I quite understand your problem. But maybe this API reference can help? If not, feel free to explain yourself a little better🤓. Source code would be the best.

@Markus (Blue Tomato) the showIf only works with fields and there values. AFAIK, the published / unpublished value cannot be used as condition for showIf directly in the template editor.

But you may define a hook and set the visibility of that field within the hook. Here is example code as a starting point. You can use this in site/ready.php

$wire->addHookAfter('ProcessPageEdit::buildForm', function (HookEvent $event) {
	// make sure we're editing a page and not a user
    if($event->process != 'ProcessPageEdit') return;

    // get page and form
    $page = $event->object->getPage();
    $form = $event->return;

	// optionally check for matching template(s) with a condition
	if('mydesiredtemplatename' != $page->template->name) return;
	// get the field and conditionally set the visibility
	$form->get('yourfieldname')->collapsed = $page->isUnpublished() ? Inputfield::collapsedHidden : Inputfield::collapsedNo;

    $event->return = $form;
