Recommended Posts

Field that stores one or more references to ProcessWire pages with additional data in field context.
Values are editable via page edit modal of the referenced page provided from the field if module AdminPageFieldEditLinks is installed and "Enable link to create new pages?" is checked in field settings.

Requirements: AdminPageFieldEditLinks >= 3.1.4

Use case example:
The planning of the Tonmeistertagung in the CCD (Congress Center Düsseldorf) from November 3rd, 2021 to November 6th, 2021 is in the finalization phase.
The conference consists of a conference part and an exhibition. The planning is done via a separate frontendless PW instance. There, all companies (pages) that are active at various events are kept in a pool. Changes (address, logo) can always be done there. For the exhibition of the current conference in November, the exhibitor-companies (pages) are selected via a page reference field. A stand number must now be assigned to each selected company (page). We had originally solved this using the Profield FieldtypeTable. However, this had the disadvantage that each entry again made all companies available for selection and did not recognize which were already selected in a previous table row. The new field type now allows the value (company's stand number) to be assigned to a Company (page) in context to a specific Pagefield living in a specific page.

This is amazing! I have missed this functionality in ProcessWire for a while already.

 

Installation

  • Install AdminPageFieldEditLinks: https://processwire.com/modules/admin-page-field-edit-links/
  • Install FieldtypePageContextData (this module)
  • Create a new field of type "Page Reference Context Data"
  • When setting up the field:
    • in tab "Details" enter configuration in "Additional page fields in Pagefield context". You can see many examples here https://github.com/kixe/FieldtypePageContextData
    • in tab "Input" select "Enable view/edit linnks on selected pages?". If you don't see this field the module AdminPageFieldEditLinks is not activated
    • in tab "Input" when changing the label field: you can also use the additional context fields as label in the page reference. Symply change your label to a custom label and define it like so: {title}, {_customfield1}, {_customfield2}
  • assign the field to your template

Screenshots

When installed and configured correctly you see the page reference like normal. But now you can click it and edit the page in a modal. This modal also contains a new tab "Pagefield Context Data" (the name of the tab can be changed in field settings).

Bugs found so far

  • On Windows: separating option values for select by \n is not working correctly. Maybe use | instead? (as that's how ProcessWire separates fields)
  • for the user template the tab "Pagefield Context Data" is not being displayed

 

Very well done. This is SO useful! ♥

  • I've pushed a fix. The separator must be translated into a real line break (expected by the Inputfield). I changed the translation to "\r\n" instead of "\n" only, which should work cross platform. Continue to use the string '\n' in the field settings. Please update to version 1.0.1. Could you please give feedback if it works?

    The pipe '|' you mentioned is already reserved to separate an option 'value' from the option 'title' (@see SelectableOptionManager). I prefer to handle the setup according (very close) to the expectations of the inputfield.
     
  • ProcessUser and possibly some other processes for editing system pages are not supported. In the special case of ProcessUser, the GET-Parameters forfield and forpage are removed from the url of the modal window for whatever reason. Any idea?

The module is still in an alpha stadium. Thanks for testing and feedback.

Thanks for the reply. Will try in the evening and report back. I'll also try to have a look into why ProcessUser is removing the GET parameters.

EDIT 1 (FieldTypeSelect):
I did test the new version. When I configure "option1\noption2" the select shows:

  • option1
  • option2
  • option1\noption2

This is because in line 387

$inputfield->option = trim('option1\noption2'); 

is being called, adding the full settingValue as another option. If you continue;  in the block where you're checking if the inputfield is a select, it should be working.
Also instead of using "\n" or "\r\n" you could probably use the constant PHP_EOL which contains the line separator for the operating system PHP is running on.

 

EDIT 2 (Editing pages of template user):
So far I've found out that the redirect is because of the method ___setEditor() in wire/core/User.php. It leads to a redirect that strips the two parameters &forpage und &forfield. If they are appended, everything works correctly. One way to solve it would be to not use ProcessUser and use ProcessPageEdit instead by adding this code to your init method:

// do not redirect to a page using ProcessUser when editing a page relation
$this->addHookBefore('User::setEditor', function (HookEvent $event) {
    if(!$this->input->get('forpage') || !$this->input->get('forfield')) {
        return;
    }
    
    $event->cancelHooks = true;
});

 

This is not yet optimal though, because in the edit screen the "name" is shown in all languages. But imo it's good enough for now. A better way would be if the method editUrl() in the User class would keep the url parameters. But that would be a core issue.

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.

      Session Viewer is a module for ProcessWire to list session files and display session data. This module is helpful to display the session data of a specific session or to kick out a logged in user by simply delete his session file. After installation the module is available in the Setup menu.

      The following conditions must be met for the module to work properly:
      Session files
      Session data must be stored in session files, which is the default way in ProcessWire. Sessions stored in the database are not supported by this module. The path to the directory where the session files are stored must be declared in the ProcessWire configuration which is by default: site/assets/sessions.
      Serialize handler
      In order to transform session data easier back to a PHP array, the session data is stored serialized. PHP offers a way to declare a custom serialize handler. This module supports only the default serialize handlers: php, php_binary and php_serialize. WDDX was dropped in PHP 7.4.0 and is therefore not supported by this module as well as any other custom serialize handler. Which serialize handler is actually used you can find out in the module configuration which is available under Modules=>Configure=>SessionViewer.

      Session data
      The session data can be displayed in two different ways. PHP's default output for arrays print_r() or by default for this module nice_r() offered on github: https://github.com/uuf6429/nice_r. There is a setting in the module configuration if someone prefers print_r(). Apart from the better handling and overview of the folded session data the output of nice_r() looks indeed nicer.

      Repeater Easy Sort
      Adds a compact "easy-sort" mode to Repeater and Repeater Matrix, making those fields easier to sort when there are a large number of items.
      The module also enhances Repeater Matrix by allowing a colour to be set for each matrix type. This colour is used in the item headers and in the "add new" links, to help visually distinguish different matrix types in the inputfield.
      Screencasts
      A Repeater field

      A Repeater Matrix field with custom header colours

      Easy-sort mode
      Each Repeater/Matrix item gets an double-arrow icon in the item header. Click this icon to enter easy-sort mode.
      While in easy-sort mode:
      The items will reduce in width so that more items can be shown on the screen at once. The minimum width is configurable in the field settings. Any items that were in an open state are collapsed, but when you exit easy-sort mode the previously open items will be reopened. You can drag an item left/right/up/down to sort it within the items. The item that you clicked the icon for is shown with a black background. This makes it easier to find the item you want to move in easy-sort mode. You can click an item header to open the item. An "Exit easy-sort mode" button appears at the bottom of the inputfield. Configuration
      In the field settings for Repeater and Repeater Matrix fields you can define a minimum width in pixels for items in easy-sort mode. While in easy-sort mode the items will be sized to neatly fill the available width on any screen size but will never be narrower than the width you set here.
      In the field settings for Repeater Matrix you can define a custom header colour for each matrix type using an HTML "color" type input. The default colour for this type of input is black, so when black is selected in the input it means that no custom colour will be applied to the header.
      Exclusions
      The easy-sort mode is only possible on Repeater/Matrix fields that do not use the "item depth" option.
