so i made some options in t he field type, and i want to check if selected title is that output this is my sample code

                                if($media->r_soc == 'facebook') {
                                    $soc = 'facebook';
                                } elseif($media->r_soc == 'twitter') {
                                    $soc = 'twitter';
                                }

i just basically want to check if the user in CMS selected option facebokk and then outpit it into variable which is later outputted into fa icon, oh and also this is all in repeat field

                            foreach($ikonky as $media) {

so thats why its $media, but as of now it outputs blank state, not sure why,

it doesnt outpit anything none of the check goes throught these are options i have in the field

1=facebook
2=twitter
3=instagram
4=youtube
5=github
6=linkedin

If I understand you correctly, you are using a select option field.

Looping through the selected options is described at https://processwire.com/docs/fields/select-options-fieldtype/#outputting-selected-options-on-a-page

You could then use if statements to test with something like this:

if ($media->title == 'facebook' {
    ...

Or a switch statement might be neater if there are several options:

switch ($media->title) {
    case 'facebook':
        $soc = 'facebook';
        break;
    case 'twitter':
        ...

      Hello everyone,
      I am struggling a little bit with combining Isotope with Processswire.
      The functions themselves work nicely and I managed to give the sortable items their categories via a page field and now I also want to make the sort order manageable with a field instead of on the actual site, so the client can easily set the way they want their stuff ordered.
      I am using a Select Options Field and am giving the sortable elements an extra class with that, and that does actually work, looking like this:
      <h2 class="headline_article<?php if ($home->sortPreviews->value == "headline"){echo " is-checked";}?>"><?php echo $article->headline; ?></h2> The only problem I have is that for the headline I want the sort order to be ascending, but for the date I want it to be descending, and as far as I know with my 1 month of coding knowledge I can only set it as either or in the grid defining javascript.
      Which now basically looks like this:
      var $grid = $('.grid').isotope({ getSortData: { selectedCategory: '.is-checked', } }); $grid.isotope({ sortBy: 'selectedCategory', sortAscending: { selectedCategory: false, } }); is it possible to either check if the item that now has the class "is-checked" also has the class "date" and then to set the sort order to descending in that case while in any other it should be ascending?
      Or if not is there maybe a different way to approach the whole idea?
      Any help is much appreciated!

      My client could save some time if she could select multiple pages at once. Of yourse, we are using the standard page selector in multi-tree mode, but she has to select one page after another. Each time she has to open the site tree again and open the required subtree, finding the page she wants to select.
      Would be cool to let the tree open after selecting a page, so she could select multiple pages in one "tree session". Understand what I mean? Anybody any solution to this?
      Alternatively, maybe the site tree could keep its state with all the subtrees open, when you are re-open it again.

      Going through my long quest to get better with ajax and utilizing the api, I have hit yet another roadblock. I currently have a form with an image field (thanks to flydev for getting that sorted), "title" text input, and a select field set to multiple. In my ajax call, I added in:
      tags = $("#select-tags").val(); form_data.append('tags', tags); $.ajax({ type: 'POST', data: form_data, contentType: false, processData: false, url: '/ajax/upload-preview/', success: function(data) { console.log("Woo"); }, error: function(xhr, ajaxOptions, thrownError) { alert(xhr.responseText); } }); And in the ajax template: 
      $tags = $sanitizer->text($_POST['tags']); $image = $sanitizer->text($_POST['image']); $p = new Page(); $p->template = "preview"; $p->parent = $pages->get("/previews/"); $p->name = $title; $p->title = $title; $p->tags = $tags; $p->save(); If I select a "tag" from the select input and submit, it does indeed add it to the Page Reference field in the backend. However, this does not work with an array being passed to it of multiple options.

      So it does appear that my ajax call is trying to submit multiple options, but I am really just unsure how to get these two added in. I saw in other forums posts of add($page) and even add(array()). Do I need to handle this js array differently or do  I need to foreach through the $tags to add it like:
      foreach($tags as $tag) { $p->tags->add($tag); $p->save(); } I tried this approach, but apparently I am still missing something.
       
      Edit:
      I was doing some tweaking, and I know I can split the js array out like:
      for (i = 0, len = tags.length; i < len; i++) { console.log(tags[i]); } However, I am not sure then how to handle the POST in php if I were to split it out.

      Hi everyone, here's the problem I'm trying to solve.
      I have a config area in my PW admin that is locked down for admin use. I use pages to store a bunch of settings that I'll use for my clients website. It's mostly used for visual things like colours and theming. This list could be tiny or large, depending on the sites requirements, but its great because I can store any information I want to. So the page tree could look something like this:
      ADMIN SETUP
      Home Config Aesthetics Colours Red Field: Custom Label - "Red" Field: Class name - "theme--red' Green Field: Custom Label - "Green" Field: Class name - "theme--green' Blue Field: Custom Label - "Blue" Field: Class name - "theme--blue' etc... Sizes Small Field: Custom Label - "Small" Field: Class name - "sm' Medium Field: Custom Label - "Medium" Field: Class name - "md Large Field: Custom Label - "Medium" Field: Class name - "lg" etc... Icons Target Field: Custom Label - "Hands shaking Icon" Field: Icon SVG - "[svg code]' Target Field: Custom Label - "Target icon" Field: Icon SVG - "[svg code]' Success Field: Custom Label - "Happy face icon" Field: Icon SVG - "[svg code]' etc... HOW I USE THIS
      I'm then able to set up page reference fields for colour, size and icons. I'll use these fields on particular pages so that my clients can select a particular colour, size or icon, or anything really. Currently, with the page reference field I can create a custom label for the options. So for something like colour I can label the field "Theme" and present a list of colours like "Red, "Green" and "Blue" using the custom page label label format of the colours page.
      This of course means that I can use this to do some lovely presentation on the front end of the site. With a colour selected I'll then be able to use the page reference to get the class name for that colour theme so that I can update the page's look and feel. So in my markup I'd end up with "theme--red" or "theme--green" etc.
      THE PROBLEM
      I have this all working which is great and it's really flexible for the client which they love. However, I'd love to be able to make things more visual for the client.
      Is there a way to be able to output more than just text in the page reference field? I might have a bunch of different blue colours, so instead of a list like so:
      Navy Blue Deep Blue Bright Blue Sea Blue ... it would be great to be able to output actual colour swatches, which is a lot mor visual for the client.
      Taking the icon selector, I would ideally like to show the actual svg that I've stored against that icon as a selectable image instead of seeing text options like:
      Hands shaking icon Target icon Happy face icon Just a couple of scenarios here, but as you can see there could be any number of reasons to display a more visual method of selection.
      ANY SOLUTIONS?
      I've looked at modules like FieldtypeColorPicker which could help in solving the colour issue, but it doesn't allow me to select a colour and then use a particular class name assigned to it the way I describe above.
      Considering the other use cases I mention above, does anyone know if anything exists already that would help me to create custom presentaion for page reference lists, or if there's anything planned?
      Thank you in advance for anyone who's read this far and has any words of wisdom!

      So I was tinkering around with the "select fields" field type and added it to a repeater. My thoughts were I could have a user select a field (textarea, text, etc etc) that I defined and give it a name (another field in the repeater) and create their own form on the page. To be honest, I am now a little lost with rendering the form and mailing the results as potentially the form will be unique and custom every time.  The only way I know to handle the output is by going about it this way:
      $forms = $page->form_select_fields; foreach($forms as $form) { if($form->name === "form_input") { //output input with custom name } elseif($form->name === "form_textarea") { //output input with custom name } } Is there a better way to go about rendering the elements from the repeater? As far as the custom sending goes, I am really at a loss since it would be pretty dynamic. Has anyone used this type of approach, and if so, how did you handle this without going insane?
