Hanna Code

Recommended Posts

Hello there.

I am working on a project and decided to try out Hanna Code tags to insert some custom HTML markup. The problem is that the markup includes some PHP variables to be checked and inserted at some spots. If I tell Hanna that the code is HTML, the php is just echoed and not processed. If I set the code as PHP, then my HTML is causing errors (of course).

So is it possible/wise to mix HTML and PHP inside of Hanna Code tags and if yes, how can I achieve that? 

Any examples of how to use HTML & PHP inside a single tag would be great.

If you set the HC to PHP, you would have to echo your HTML of course, or concatenate and then echo it.

<?php

$out .= '<div class="seo-block seo-interviews">';
$out .= "<h2>{$heading}</h2>";
$out .= '<ul>';
foreach( $interviews as $one ){
  $out .= "<li>
   // ...
  </li>";
}
$out .= '</ul>';
$out .= '</div>';
echo $out;

Hey @Klenkes I always get lazy which was the reason to search for a way to include only the PHP particles in my HTML. I came to the same conclusion as your suggestion, however, this morning. Thank you for it. I guess that for a big chunk of markup the mix of HTML and PHP would not make it read-friendly so I will bang it with PHP.

You could try using a PHP hannacode with:

?>
<html>test</html>
<?php

Thanks @LostKobrakai I will try both suggestions and see which one would be easier for me, fit better and most important, would be good to read. It might be a bit harder to turn the entire code to pure PHP due to the fact that there will be lots of html code to assign to $out and to align it, however I might not worry about it as I am planning to minify pages anyway. The more I touch HC, the more ways I see to use it where some user intervention is required but no manual file editing is a good idea.

P.S. I tested @LostKobrakai suggestion and can confirm that it works 100% with escaping the PHP tag at the beginning and then adding the HTML code. In my scenario there would be lots of interactions with the HC parameters which would be a part of a few selectors so it would make more sense to have them in PHP. At least if anyone is looking for HTML and PHP mix inside a Hanna Code tags, they could use either approach.

Just to mention for anyone coming across an issue using Hanna code blocks and having a <p>&nbsp;</p> which might mess up with the markup - it is not related to the module in any case but to the configuration of the field. I am not going to go to many details as there are quite a few topics that I've seen discussing it on other matters, so you could just find the best settings by changing the Text formatters, Content type and Beautify Markup Toggles (in my scenario, I removed empty paragraph tags and removed also non-breaking spaces.

Hey all. While playing with Hanna Code module I need to set some attributes to not be allowed to be empty (category name or some page listing counts). I know that in the markup I can check for those, however I would like to know is there any way to set the status of the attributes from the HC admin and eliminate the need of adding extra checks for that?

What I am trying to achieve is to have a custom tag inserting a block with page listings from different categories. Then I assign the list of the categories to an array to place them in the markup so I would like to restrict empty values from the attributes options shown in Hanna Dialogues.

P.S. In some cases some values defined in the attributes might be needed to be validated before they are submitted to the tag call for further verification (some numbers needing to be null, not null, bigger/smaller than..., required etc.) So far I was able to set the attributes I need, however the question is how can I achieve some initial validation before they values are passed to the module for processing (during submission or during save).

@MilenKo, just a quick note that I've merged your thread into the existing Hanna Code module support thread.

When you have questions regarding an existing module, please post them to the dedicated support thread (if one is available – you can find a link to the support thread from the Modules Directory entry for the module in question). Modules/Plugins area of the forum is intended for module-specific support threads, and there should be only one thread for each module. Thanks! 🙂

@teppo no problem. That is usually what I do but maybe I've over drank the coffee and got too much coding that day 😉 

P.S. I kind of completted my task by adding some checks in the code but it would be useful to know if I can add some checks before submitting the values of parameters to Hanna Code. Maybe I should check with @Robin S as he is the developer of HC Dialogues and it seems like the module addition could be easier to manupulate.

Can I use Hanna Code in any field? Even a page title, or the title of a repeater? 

I have a site where someone wants to replace a snippet of text with an image wherever it appears, body, title, other text fields etc. - thinking this might be suitable.

You should be able to.  Just assign the Hannacode Textformatter to the fields of your choice and it should work.

If you can add it on the Details tab as a Text Formatter, then it should work. Have you tried it? 😉

I have, now! It worked a treat. The only consideration was that my title field was also being used to populate the <title> tag so I had to be a bit smarter, retain the original text that was being replaced in Hanna Code's replacement and strip tags in the page title.

I hope someone can help me with the issue I'm facing when using Hanna Code.

I've installed Hanna Code using the instructions and I've made a couple of Hanna Code's. For example: one HTML Hanna Code with an image, so that I can easily show the same image on different pages within the content, so I also can change it easily.

But right now, the results of the codes just doesn't show. Hanna Code shows them when I view the Hanna Code's preview, but the shortcode ( the [[name here]] codes) don't turn into something else. I've an example here: https://smartranking.nl/blog/oude-berichten-weer-hoger-in-google-laten-verschijnen/.

The shortcut remains "[[cta-seo-consult]]".

Is anyone known with this problem? How can I fix it? I hope someone can give me the solution for it. I already tried different text formatting, but that also doesn't help.

Welcome to the forums @jarik

Make sure you've enabled Hanna Code as a text formatter for the textarea field where you want it to work. I am in a bit of a hurry. Have a look at the settings of your textarea field (details tab).

Hello gents.

I've been experimenting a lot lately with Hanna Code and Hanna dialogue which lead me to a full "News Block" code that can be inserted easily using CKEditor. My idea was to build a few similar news blocks and allow the admin to select the categories (represented by pages) for every block tabs etc.

Attached is a screen cast of what I have so far and it is working perfectly fine and as expected.

As usual, there is one HOWEVER 🙂 After some experimenting and adding few news pages (in my case as it is obvious some recipes), I was glad to see it all happening. The problem came, when I tried to insert the same Hanna Code block with the idea to show some different categories. What has happened is that the second block tabs came empty, but clicking on them started changing the navigation of the first one. From my humble experience with PHP I would guess that since Hanna code is using the same attributes, it affects the appearance of any other than the first block. So has any one ever came to a similar use and have found a solution that would allow to have multiple blocks inserted without an overlapping of the code of every one?

I am thinking about experimenting with inserting a random number after the block name which would be used for the tab number and tab content, however am not sure if there is a simpler or more elegant solution that I am missing yet...

Maybe it is important to mention that I am trying to accomplish a page builder using Hanna Code and Dialogue to allow selection of pages, add some limitations etc.

Nevermind, looking at the code, I found the answer - every time I called the hanna code, the tabs were having identical names, so this was causing the issue. To fix it I've added a simple random string to the tab names and it is all working fine now.

 

	$permitted_chars = '0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ';
	$rand = substr(str_shuffle($permitted_chars), 0, 10);

	$tab_name = "Tab" . $count . "-" . $rand;

This gives me an alphanumeric string of 10 chars length which aims to avoid a chance of duplicating again the tab names. I know it might be an overkil, but just don't want to take the risk of generating random number and have them matching 😉 As of now, the tab ID is something like: #Tab1-wrf7te0Y2x

Looking to use Hanna code with ProFields Table. Textformatter is not parsing the Hanna snippet. Can anyone give me the correct name of the formatter option since it needs to be manually added instead of selecting the TextFormatter option from the dropdown.

I use Hanna Code quite a lot, and especially with @Robin S's excellent dialog module. However, one thing I find a bit irritating is when you have lots of codes with php; the number of clicks to edit the php plus then needing to update the database (assuming you do this on a test version  before implementing live) is quite time consuming, often for quite trivial changes.

So: I am looking at re-engineering my codes along the following lines. Each code which needs php will just have the same code - something like

<?php
$result = hannaCode($input, $attr, $page, $hanna->name, $hanna->field, $hanna->value);
if (in_array('text', $result)) $hanna->value = $result['text'];
echo $result['out'];

Then, in a separate php file (probably "include"d  in init.php) I have a function 

hannaCode($input, $attr, $page, $hannaName, $hannaField, $hannaText)

with a switch on $hannaName to execute the code for that name.

This has 2 benefits:

  1. Any common code can go at the top, before the switch. E.g. I have 
    if ($page->template == 'admin') {
            $pId = $input->get('id');
            $page = wire('pages')->get($pId);
        }
        $helpArray = [
            'Property' => '[[Property]]: The name/title of the property (choose system name or title). Only works on a Booking page and its Mailing children',
    ..etc...
        ];
        if ($page->template == 'help-doc') {
            return ['out' => $helpArray[$hannaName]];
        }
    switch ...

     

  2. I can do simple edits in the IDE, test and upload without having to touch the database.

Has anyone else tried this. Any thoughts? Is it even worth a tut?

@MarkE, if you prefer to edit your Hanna code in your IDE you might find this useful:

Thanks - that looks neat. I guess I could then just have another function for the common elements.

Thanks. That’s useful, in that it has no database component, but I really need a drop-down/dialog capability so I think I’ll have to stick with the “hybrid” route, where only standard code is in the back-end.

      Happy new year, everybody 🥬
      I've been sitting on this Dashboard module I made for a client and finally came around to cleaning it up and releasing it to the wider public. This is how it looks.
      ProcessWire Dashboard

      If anyone is interested in trying this out, please go ahead! I'd love to get some feedback on it. If this proves useful and survives some real-world testing, I'll add this to the module directory.
      Download
      You can find the latest release on Github.
      Documentation
      Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options.
      Custom Panels
      My goal was to make it really simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people.
       Disclaimer
      This is a pre-release version. Please treat it as such — don't install it on production sites. Just making sure 🍇
      Roadmap
      These are the things I'm looking to implement myself at some point. The wishlist is a lot longer, but those are the 80/20 items that I probably won't regret spending time on.
      Improve documentation & add examples ⚙️ Panel types Google Analytics ⚙️ Add new page  🔥 Drafts 🔥 At a glance / Page counter 404s  Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel panel groups with heading and spacing between ✅ panel wrappers as grid item (e.g. stacked notices) ✅ Admin themes support AdminThemeReno and AdminThemeDefault ✅ Shortcuts panel add a table layout with icon, title & summary ✅ Chart panel add default styles for common chart types ✅ load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array) Collection panel support image columns ✅ add buttons: view all & add new ✅

      Hi everyone!
      I'm trying out the Login/Register module for my site. Noted that the module assigns the newly registered user to login-register role. 
      Once you modify the login-register role's permissions, particularly adding page-edit, the new member role will be set to guest. 
      Thing is I'd like to grant my new users the power to create their own pages. Any advice? 
      Thanks.

      Hello
      Till now I hacked something with the twig template but it works no more with new PW versions so I look forward to create a module. I am working on a site in multiple languages : French, English, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian. The new posts are entered in any language with a field for language. Till now, I got twig files to get the translations with constants defined for each part of the pages.
      So I'd like to create a module to include theses files added according to the url /fr/en/...
      Have you some observations to do before I begin about the direction to take ?
      Thank you

      Mystique Module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF
      Github repo : https://github.com/trk/Mystique
      Mystique module allow you to create dynamic fields and store dynamic fields data on database by using a config file.
      Requirements
      ProcessWire 3.0 or newer PHP 7.0 or newer FieldtypeMystique InputfieldMystique Installation
      Install the module from the modules directory:
      Via Composer:
      composer require trk/mystique Via git clone:
      cd your-processwire-project-folder/ cd site/modules/ git clone https://github.com/trk/Mystique.git Module in live reaction with your Mystique config file
      This mean if you remove a field from your config file, field will be removed from edit screen. As you see on youtube video.
      Using Mystique with your module or use different configs path, autoload need to be true for modules
      Default configs path is site/templates/configs/, and your config file name need to start with Mystique. and need to end with .php extension.
      Adding custom path not supporting anymore !
      // Add your custom path inside your module class`init` function, didn't tested outside public function init() { $path = __DIR__ . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'configs' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR; Mystique::add($path); } Mystique module will search site/modules/**/configs/Mystique.*.php and site/templates/Mystique.*.php paths for Mystique config files.
      All config files need to return a PHP ARRAY like examples.
      Usage almost same with ProcessWire Inputfield Api, only difference is set and showIf usage like on example.
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : testing-mystique */ return [ 'title' => __('Testing Mystique'), 'fields' => [ 'text_field' => [ 'label' => __('You can use short named types'), 'description' => __('In file showIf working like example'), 'notes' => __('Also you can use $input->set() method'), 'type' => 'text', 'showIf' => [ 'another_text' => "=''" ], 'set' => [ 'showCount' => InputfieldText::showCountChars, 'maxlength' => 255 ], 'attr' => [ 'attr-foo' => 'bar', 'attr-bar' => 'foo' ] ], 'another_text' => [ 'label' => __('Another text field (default type is text)') ] ] ]; Example:
      site/templates/configs/Mystique.seo-fields.php <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : seo-fields */ return [ 'title' => __('Seo fields'), 'fields' => [ 'window_title' => [ 'label' => __('Window title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a window title') ] ], 'navigation_title' => [ 'label' => __('Navigation title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'showIf' => [ 'window_title' => "!=''" ], 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a navigation title') ] ], 'description' => [ 'label' => __('Description for search engines'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXTAREA, 'useLanguages' => true ], 'page_tpye' => [ 'label' => __('Type'), 'type' => Mystique::SELECT, 'options' => [ 'basic' => __('Basic page'), 'gallery' => __('Gallery'), 'blog' => __('Blog') ] ], 'show_on_nav' => [ 'label' => __('Display this page on navigation'), 'type' => Mystique::CHECKBOX ] ] ]; Searching data on Mystique field is limited. Because, Mystique saving data to database in json format. When you make search for Mystique field, operator not important. Operator will be changed with %= operator.
      Search example
      $navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.show_on_nav=1'); $navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.page_tpye=gallery');
