Another instance of Page Edit

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

Is there a way for us to replicate the "http://mydomain.com/processwire/page/edit/?id=xxx" and change the template to match my site template? 

I'm terribly happy with the admin / backend page edit. It covers literaly everything I want to empower my non super admin user in updating pages such as validation, repeater management, file upload. 

I wish not to allow the users to see the backend for both security and aesthetic reasons. 

Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

Hi @louisstephens!

I have but I feel that because of the double clicking, it may be confusing for the user. By having the proper forms, with clear text boxes, it will be easier for the non techy user.

What security concerns do you have? How many users are we talking about?

Aesthetic reasons: You can totally individualize your admin! Looks like you are using uikit for your frontend, so that would be quite simple. I've built a custom admin theme that looks like this:


It's based on one main color that can be changed to whatever you want (as long as it contrasts to white). It's not public (yet?), but if you're interested you could pm me.

Hi @bernhard My users will be the general public. Meaning, they are not clients, nor probably tech savvy. So need the interface as friendly as possible and to direct their focus only to their listing. 

Actually am not using UI kit on the front. It was just a coincidence. LOL

Well, then I think you have two options:

  1. Build a custom user-area on the frontend (like a user-backend on the pw-frontend)
  2. Use the PW backend and customize it as much as possible

Both have pro's and con's depending on the exact situation.

      Hi everyone.
      I've created 12 templates that are the same but each with an extra bit of html code. 
      The piece of code is as follows:
      <div> <div class="box-pf"> <i class="fa fa-map-pin fa-2x fa-red faa-pulse animated"></i> <a href=""> <span class="uk-text-middle"><i>Sonchus oleraceus</i> 'Grespino degli Orti'</span></b> </a> </div> </div> On the third line we read "fa-red."
      I created 12 similar templates.
      The first template has only one box with fa-red, the last template has 12 boxes with icons of 12 different colors.
      So. is there any way to have only 1 template and add, if I want and when I want, a small or big, same or different piece of html code?

      So I ran into a very strange issue today. I have a template with a pagetable and I went to add an item to it, when I went to select an image (for an image field) the page instantly threw up an error
      "ProcessPageSearchLive: No search specified"
      The page's content also switched to the image attached. This all worked perfectly last week (local mamp box). Has anyone experienced this before, and how did you solve it?
