It's been twice this year as a PW developer where clients have asqued me to have a way to put content on specific coordinates of a picture. Something like what image maps are made of. But not necesarly on links, sometimes text, sometimes images and links.
So I've been thinking to build an inputfield for that purpose. But I'm not sure how could it be the most flexible so I can share it in github/modules page.
Ideally it would need to work like a repeater field where you start uploading an image and then adding any custom field like title, url etc. So the user could add multiple elements floating over that image.
Does anybody here know the ideal way to start the arquitecture of something like that? I could just hardcode the fields I need for the website I have to code this month but it would be nice to be something more flexible.
Fieldtype Page Table Grid
This is a sneak preview of a side project I've been working on for quite some time now. A lot of work and thought has gone into this, so I will most likely release this as a commercial module at some point in the near future.
As a designer (and developer) I get the appeal of a WYSIWYG editor. After playing around with some WYSIWYG page builder tools, I always felt something was wrong about them. So I decided to build my own PW version based on PageTable.
Here is a small demo (using AdminThemeCanvas, but its working with other admin themes as well) :
There is also a complete website that I built for a friend of mine using this module and some custom blocks.
This fieldtype shares a lot of features with PageTableExtended: it's also an extension of PageTable and renders the block templates in the backend and frontend (native PW templates and fields). You can also add your own css via module settings.
The CSS grid layout manipulations are saved in a single field as a JSON array and used to generate a dynamic stylesheet that you simply include in your main template (no inline styles). The styles are saved within the breakpoint you select and cascade down to smaller breakpoints. That means you can specify just the basic breakpoint and adjust other breakpoints if needed. The exception is the mobile breakpoint which will display everything in one column as a default (you can change the layout here too).
The fieldtype also comes with an optional style panel to manipulate some additional CSS properties directly on the page. You can customize the panel or disable it completely from the module settings (and just use a CSS file that you include via module settings). The style panel is based on inputfields (nothing is saved to the database). This means that you just have to install the module and all fields are available to all blocks automatically (this can be customized). It also has the benefit that your installation is not flooded with fields; this module only installs one field.
Don't want to give your customer all that power? Design features can be disabled for certain roles. The grid editor role can just edit the content and use the inline editing feature to edit content quickly. You can then also grant access individually to the style panel, resize or drag functionality.
Blocks are just pages Blocks are defined by native PW templates and fields Manipulate CSS grid in a visual way to design fully responsive websites (or parts of them) Design features can be disabled for certain roles Inline editing of text, ckeditor and file fields The layout is 100% CSS grid (very small css file size) Simply drag and resize to manipulate grid items directly inside the backend Manipulate grid columns and rows directly on the page (use any number of columns you want) All style manipulations are saved as JSON and used to generate a dynamic stylesheet that you just include in your main template (no inline styles) Nested groups/grids (child pages of nested blocks are created under group parent) Global blocks work with page reference field (changes on one page, changes all blocks on all pages) Manual and auto placement of grid items Define custom icons for your blocks via native template settings (template -> advanced -> icon) Option to load lazysizes in the backend to enable lazy loading of assets with class lazyload Works with all default and ui-kit based admin themes If you have any questions or feedback, let me know.
12 identical templates but with a small piece of different code: can I use processwire to create a single template?By franciccio-ITALIANO
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?
Hi there! And thanks for Processwire!
It appears there's a possible bug in Processwire 3.0.170 concerning file and/or image inputfield. Creating such a field results in the following error:
Fatal Error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function get() on null
The inputfield is created however. The closer look reveals a problem at line 60 in wire\modules\Fieldtype\FieldtypeFile\config.php:
if(!$value) $value = $fieldtype->get('defaultFileExtensions'); Commenting this line removes the problem, but the newly created inputfield requires 'Allowed file extensions' config option to be set (which is rather expectable since i commented the above-cited line of code). Never faced this problem before, hope it can be resolved.

Im working on streamlining my email sending setup for SMTP. I have a page where the user of the website can input the SMTP host, port, connection type email and password etc but the password field has an additional box underneath it for 'Confirming' it as if it were a new password. The placeholder text also says 'New Password' but I want to be able to change that. I just need an input field where they can enter their SMTP password without it being plain text.
Thanks for your help!
