I've installed this module in PW 2.4 but I don't see the 'Template Editor' option in my admin menu. Also, I've installed 'InputfieldAceEditor' module as you suggested but no luck. I am working in XAMPP 1.7.7 / PHP: 5.3.8 / Win7 / Firefox.

What I would be doing wrong?
Thanks in advanced.

Without looking too hard, I would suggest you upgrade the XAMPP (Current version is 5.6.3, so what you have is old and may not still be supported). The PHP minimum for PW is 5.3.8, however it wouldn't hurt to have a more recent version.

Hi Nico,

This looks great module and works perfectly.

Some suggestions / ideas:

1) file name could be hidden by default

2) option to define ignore list for files / folders

Even without those it's great, my 2 cents :)

it should be possible to edit any file within the templates folder.

If you are experiencing issues/errors with it, I would recommend submitting it here:


Also, for a better editing experience, try using the new AceExtended editor; it is supposed to work now with this.

Edit: just checked and was able to open, edit and save CSS and JS files.

Hi Macrura,

I have all my CSS files in a sub-folder in the templates folder. Is this reason I can't edit them? In fact, I can see all of them in the templates editor.


edit: File permission problem. I change the permission of the CSS folder to 774 and it works.

Thanks for the Template Editor. It's great!

For PW 3.0 I had to change line 274 from:

if("$fm" == $baseClass || is_subclass_of("$fm", $baseClass))
if("$fm" == $baseClass || is_subclass_of("$fm", $baseClass)  || is_subclass_of("$fm", "ProcessWire\\".$baseClass))

Not sure if it is the best way, but it lets me choose "AceExtended" again from the "Inputfield Type" list.

I am an absolute beginner with PW.

Thank you.

When I use the Template Editor I get that message back:


Be careful with this. If you're changing the file name you probably have to change the template's name manually, too.


<p>Preview doesn't support "" media type.

The template would not be displayed. The error message does not reveal what's the problem. Mmhhh ... Media Type seems to be the problem. Can I add myself MediaTypes, so that I can edit this?
