Short version of question
Let's say I have a page in the admin that contains a field... Is it possible to output the content from that field on another page in the admin? Almost like a reference.
Longer version of question (with example)
A house builder with multiple (60+) developments. They want to be able to create notices/messages that can be added to one or many developments. Handy for things like regional covid lockdowns or temporary office closures due to bad weather.
My approach for the admin editing options:
Add each message to each development
Pros: You edit the message on the development page in context
Cons: Very time consuming and repetitive if the same message needs to be applied to 60+ developments
Control all the messages from one admin page and say which development each message should be applied to
Pros: Easier to add/remove messages to more than one development at a time. Control all messages from one place.
Cons: Content is not added on development page, which is where typical admin users may expect to find it I went for option 2 due to flexibility, and created a page within the admin for global development notices. This contains a repeater with:
Field for message to display Checkbox list of all developments. The user can select which ones to apply each message to It's working really well but the only thing is that if the user goes to a specific development in the admin, the relevant messages aren't displayed in context (as they aren't edited on that page and instead on the global development notices page)... which may cause confusion when a new staff member / content admin tries to edit the text but there is no field when they go to the development admin page where they expect to see it...
I don't require the message(s) to also be editable on the development page, but I wondered if there was a nice way to show it/them somehow. I feel like I am missing something really simple as I'm sure ProcessWire will have a nice way of achieving this, or maybe there are field settings that allow this kind of thing to happen?
Any ideas on approaches or similar experiences would be much appreciated, even if it is just a much simpler example with the content from one field being shown on another admin page to get the ball rolling.
Thanks in advance for any advice :)
Never really got my head around field groups and it shows, In my module uninstall I think I figured out how to delete a page, then a template and it's fieldgroup so that nothing gets upset. But for fields that belong to templates that need to stoick around I'm still abit stuck to how you would remove the field and when I try I still get:
Unable to delete field '[field name]' because it is in use by these fieldgroups: 'user'
is there a tutorial or best method for removing added fields, pages and templates?
Global field with one instance needed: Content of footer should be dynamic and changes should affect all pages at onceBy daniel_puehringer
Hi community, thanks for the great work you do 🙂
I´m looking for a global field which can be used in the footer and has only one instance for all pages. So I´m kind of looking for "One field to rule them all".
Reason for my question: The website I´m currently building has one footer for all pages. The content of the footer should be dynamic - therefore I made a global field which is automatically inserted into each page.
Problem: if I want to change something in the footer, I have to do it for all fields, because each field has it´s own instance.
Question: is it possible to have one global field in which changes the content for the footer of all pages?
In most CMS Systems a simple solution to this is often impossible, I hope that processwire is different 🙂
All the best,
Hello, and welcome to what I though was either my client being silly and changing things, or some evil doer. Turns out its reproducible and therefore something in Proceswire (I checked my templates and modules but couldnt find anything that would be doing this...). So what is it doing? Check out the video for evidence.
A repeater field is interacting with a page template and another repeater field somehow to swap the fields in the template and repeater over...
I have a template called team, and a repeater field called team_repeater with label Team. Some how and for some reason, when I change my fields on repeater called main_menu_links my team template gets those fields and when I try and revert the team template fields to the fields it should have, they get given to the repeater main_menu_links. Also this to say HELP!!!!!
