Menu Builder

Thanks for your help so far. Your gif demonstration shows exactly why I mentioned that your module actually works great. I am personally only missing on little functionality or something similiar which you call "Using the Include Children Feature". The "Using the Include Children Feature" just seems to work if you choose the "page" option. It seems not to work together with the "custom" option you showed in the gif.

You are right. The 'Include Children Feature' only works for natural menu items, menu items that are ProcessWire pages. Your BMW (as per my example), are not ProcessWire pages but custom menu items. There is no way to tell what their children are since they are external items.

In my example above I would use the "Using the Include Children Feature" to get all 1000 items in and afterwards customize that 50 items out of 1000 if I just could

Where would you be getting the 1000 items from? From my understanding, these 1000 items are not ProcessWire pages but external links. Maybe this is the bit I am not understanding. I have a feeling that your 1000 items are also actual pages in ProcessWire (part of the ProcessWire tree) and you want to include only their parent and have the children automatically added. If that's the case, that is not how MenuBuilder works. We currently don't support such a feature.

OK, I now get what you are saying. However, I don't want to introduce confusion regarding terms. Custom items are not ProcessWire pages. Also, the include children feature you currently see in the backend is for influencing what happens in the frontend. It's not about including children in the backend.

I am talking about the default menu which you would also become if you would use the module simple markup navigation in its very basic configuration. 

Here again, I don't want users to get confused. There is no default menu in MenuBuilder 🙂. I get your point though. I'll think about making it possible to select a ProcessWire page and have all its children added to the menu, hierarchically, according to their position in the ProcessWire tree. Please add this as a feature request in the module's project page.

As for customising links of ProcessWire pages that are part of a menu, I don't think that's a good idea so I will not be heading in that direction.

Hello community.

For a new project of my company I would like to implement a checck if a menu exist (by ID, name etc.) and only if yes, to render it. So far I was googling and reading the pages here, but could not find a way to implement that. Could you kindly assist me in that?

So far what I've tried and obviously it did not work was this:

if ($menu->render(1234)!='') {
	echo $menu->render(1234, $options);        
}

It might be useful to have this check added to the MenuBuilder instructions as I always like to have a check for existence with any field/template so the menu would not differ. It sort of prevents the "danger screen" during website setup or if a typo in a call was made 😉

P.S. As far as every menu added is a page, I found a way to check for the page existence and it work, however I am not sure if that is the simplest and most elegant way to achieve the needed:

if($pages->get(1234)->title){ 
   echo $header_menu->render(1234, $options);        
}

Hi @MilenKo,

Your code was close. If a menu is not found AND the user is a supersuser, Menu Builder will throw a WireException. If the user is not a supersuser, it will return false (boolean). In such a case, you can do your check like this:

$mb = $modules->get('MarkupMenuBuilder');

$out = $mb->render(1234, $options);
if($out) echo $out;
// OR
//if($mb->render(1234, $options)) echo $mb->render(1234, $options);

Hi @kongondo I almost guessed the check on my first attempt, however the result came the same - I got a whole new "red page" while being logged on as SuperUser and the menu was not rendered if logged out (I did not yet add a non-SuperUser yet).

The thing is that once I hand out the profile, it wont be only me the person to hold the SuperUser but an IT team as well. So if someone gets the "red screen" and is not aware of MenuBuilder rendering way, they will report the issue as a profile failure. I found out though, that if I treat the menu as a page and check for existence of a title, than it does not matter whether you are a SU or not - if the page does not exist, nothing would happen and that is it (that is what I need as if someone reports to me, that the menu is not rendered, then I would simply advise to make sure that the menu ID or name is added with the links needed).

Following the initial logic, I reworked a bit my check up as to add an OR statement that besides the ID would also look for the menu name (page->title):

// Check if the menu has an id of 1234 or has a title equal to my_menu_name
// If no match for the ID but a match for the page title, then stil the menu would be rendered
// If no condition match, the error page would not be shown on any user and the menu would simpy not render
if($pages->get(1234)->title || $pages->get('title=my_menu_name') !=''){
   echo $footer_menu->render(1047, $options);        
}  

In a real world scenario, the check would work, but in a case where the page title matches another page being added with the same name outside of MenuBuilder, than it would force the menu to be rendered, but I can live with it for now, as the profile would already have the page added and it would be too much for someone to delete and recreate the menu (which would change the ID), then add another page with the same name as my original menu title and then test for rendering. This way I avoid any error page for all users and the only result would be that the menu would not render 😉

You can also do a check using the template 'menus'. That's the template used by menu builder menus.

Well I've tried to check for the template earlier and it worked, but it was rendering the menu if any page had that template. After you brought this, I thought to re-create the query and this way just add it in the get statement:

// Check if the menu has an id of 1234 or has a title equal to my_menu_name
// If no match for the ID but a match for the page title, then stil the menu would be rendered
// If no condition match, the error page would not be shown on any user and the menu would simpy not render
if($pages->get(1234)->title || $pages->get('template=menus, title=my_menu_name') !=''){
   echo $footer_menu->render(1047, $options);        
}  

So we are adding an extra check to make sure that a similarity with another custom added page would be minimized. For sure it could happen, but there are already 3 criteria to match and I believe this would be enough.

Thanks very much, @kongondo for the perfect module and the shared knowledge (as usual) 😉

Hello,

This was probably already asked, but can't find something like this on the forum.

Im having some problems adding some extra html to the menu.

I'm using

<?php 
	$menu = $modules->get('MarkupMenuBuilder');
	$options = array(
		'wrapper_list_type' => 'ul',// ul, ol, nav, div, etc.
		'list_type' => 'li',// li, a, span, etc.
		'menu_css_id' => 'menu-main-menu-1',// a CSS ID for the menu
		'menu_css_class' => 'menu',// a CSS Class for the menu
		'submenu_css_class' => 'sub-menu',// CSS Class for sub-menus
		'has_children_class' => '',// CSS Class for any menu item that has children
		'first_class'=>'',// CSS Class for the first item in 
		'last_class' => '',
		'current_class' => 'active',
		'default_title' => 0,// 0=show saved titles;1=show actual/current titles
		'include_children' => 4,// show 'natural' MB non-native descendant items as part of navigation
		'm_max_level' => 1,// how deep to fetch 'include_children'
		'current_class_level' => 1,// how high up the ancestral tree to apply 'current_class'
		'default_class' => '',// a CSS class to apply to all menu items
		);
	echo $menu->render(1032, $options);
?>

as my menu which is working great, but for the mobile menu I need to add extra <span class="toggler"></span> to the parrent so the html will look like this:

<li>
	<a href="#">Home</a><span class="toggler"></span>
		<ul class="sub-menu">
			<li><a href="#">Sub Menu 1</a></li>
			<li><a href="#">Sub Menu 2</a></li>
			<li><a href="#">Sub Menu 3</a></li>
			<li><a href="#">Sub Menu 4</a></li>
		</ul>
</li>

Is it possible to achieve this somehow?

Thank you

R

Hi @Roych,

How are you building the mobile menu? Is it a separate menu or built on the fly? The usual way to tackle this is to use the Menu Builder's getMenuItems() method to return menu items either as an object or an array which you can traverse using a recursive function to build your menu with your markup and logic as you see fit. Please have a look at this post for examples (including 3 recursive functions you can edit to suit your needs). The functions (somewhat modified) can also be found in this gist.

Give us a shout if you run into issues.

Hi guys,

 

I'm struggling a little getting a menu rendered here. After having build the menu I want to manipulate it; I want to add all menu items to an array, grab an image from each of the target pages in the menu and then render each menu item with some pictures from its target page. I tried using getMenuItems() for this but somehow it fails, I probably don't really get how to properly use it. Here's what I have so far:

$menuBuilder = $modules->get('MarkupMenuBuilder');
$menu = 'mainNav';

$menuItems = $menuBuilder->getMenuItems($menu, 2, $options);
$bundledMenuItems = array();
$menuItemsWithPictures = array();

//build an array that holds the random picture for each category in the menu

foreach ($menuItems as $menuItem) {
    $targetPage = $pages->get($menuItem->id);
    $menuItemsWithPictures['title'] = $targetPage->title;
    $menuItemsWithPictures['pictures'] = $targetPage->get('images'); //this array is intentional, I want to do some slideshow thingy there
    array_push($bundledMenuItems, $menuItemsWithPictures);
}

$view->set('menuItems', $menuItems);
$view->set('bundledMenuItems', $bundledMenuItems);

?>

(This code is probably highly questionable, I'm not really proficient in php; love ProcessWire but despise php...., but what the hell.)

I can't, however, seem to render all the items with their corresponding pictures in the frontend.

I'm using twig as a template engine; this is what var_dump returns in the frontend:

 

            pages:
            array(4) {
  [0]=>
  array(2) {
    ["title"]=>
    string(4) "Home"
    ["pictures"]=>
    object(ProcessWire\Pageimages)#235 (2) {
      ["count"]=>
      int(1)
      ["items"]=>
      array(1) {
        ["steinlampe_2_grayscale.png"]=>
        string(26) "steinlampe_2_grayscale.png"
      }
    }
  }
  [1]=>
  array(2) {
    ["title"]=>
    string(5) "Admin"
    ["pictures"]=>
    NULL
  }
  [2]=>
  array(2) {
    ["title"]=>
    NULL
    ["pictures"]=>
    NULL
  }
  [3]=>
  array(2) {
    ["title"]=>
    string(5) "Pages"
    ["pictures"]=>
    NULL
  }
}

... which aren't the pages that I declared in the menu with menuBuilder. I there something I'm missing here?

My desired menustructure should be:

illustrationen
leuchten
impressum
...

 

Does anyone have an idea what I got wrong here?

Best regards, derelektrischemoench

Hi @derelektrischemoench,

This code:

$targetPage = $pages->get($menuItem->id);

is the problem. For objects returned by getMenuItems(), id refers to the internal menu item ID in the collection AND NOT the corresponding ProcessWire page ID :-). Apologies, documentation could be clearer. To get the ProcessWire page ID of that menu item, use pagesID instead. 

So:

$targetPage = $pages->get($menuItem->pagesID);

By the way, please note that menu items with a pagesID of 0 are external menu items (e.g. an item pointing to google.com, etc). 

And while we are here..

This:

$targetPage->get('images');

Could be changed to:

$targetPage->images; 

However, your code shows that you are returning the whole 'images' field object. That is why you see this:

["pictures"]=>
    object(ProcessWire\Pageimages)#235 (2) {
      ["count"]=>
      int(1)
      ["items"]=>
      array(1) {
        ["steinlampe_2_grayscale.png"]=>
        string(26) "steinlampe_2_grayscale.png"

Is that intentional? Aren't you really after the url of the image? Secondly, how many images are in each menu item's images field? Is the image field a multi image field or single? If multi, you need to loop through it if you want multiple images from it, or get the first one using first(). If it is a single image field, you are fine, you can just grab the URL.

Hi Kongondo,

thanks for the quick reply; I fixed my mistake by nesting the loops. I'm totally not used to php, which treats arrays very differently than other languages. What I ended up with was this:

 

foreach ($menuItems as $item) {
    $targetPageId = $item['pages_id'];
    $randomImage = $pages->get($targetPageId)->images->getRandom();
    $menuItemsRendered[] = array(
        'page_id'=>$item['pages_id'],
        'title'=>$item['title'],
        'url'=>$item['url'],
        'image'=>$randomImage
    );
}

which works perfectly fine. Thx  for the support.

Thanks for this module very useful, However I still need one more option and I'm not sure how to get it.

The builder in the admin has the option to write a class(es) for each link. So far i cant find a way to retrieve that class and print it in the menu I create with the MarkupMenuBuilder.

Is there any other param in options or maybe someway to rewrite the part that print the links ?

How are you rendering your menus? If you are using render() then the classes are already included in <li> or <a> depending on the $options your send to render(). If you are using getMenuItems() with the array option, i.e. second parameter $type = 1, you get your classes in the index css_itemclass. If using getMenuItems() to return an object, you get the classes at $m->cssClass where $m is a single menu object/item.

Thanks for the answer. You were right. I was thinking the class could be printed on the <a> tag.

I hope someone can help: I get an error message and can't figure out what's wrong. I'm getting the following errors:

Warning: Creating default object from empty value in .../site/modules/ProcessMenuBuilder/MarkupMenuBuilder.module on line 302
Warning: Creating default object from empty value in .../site/modules/ProcessMenuBuilder/MarkupMenuBuilder.module on line 305

I use the same code on two sites, in the same environment, one works, the other one doesn't. Latest module version: 0.2.4 and latest Processwire dev.
The code:

<?php
  // Output the main menu
  $menu_builder = $modules->get("MarkupMenuBuilder");
  $menu_options = array(
    "menu_css_class" => "navbar-nav justify-content-end main-menu",
    "current_class" => "active",
    "default_class" => "nav-item"
  );
  echo $menu_builder->render("main_menu", $menu_options);
?>

It looks like the menu items get lost somewhere but I'm not that great with reading code and debugging.

I've not see this error before. Is this a multilingual site? Other than the warning, does the menu render at all? TracyDebugger error?

Hi Kongondo, it's just a fresh install of PW 3.0.118 with a site profile that I took from the previous site.
All modules were added by the site profile backup. I use the same code in the template to output the menu.

My development machine is a Mac running AMPPS with PHP 7.1
The menu doesn't render, I get the error message instead.

Steps I tried (to no avail):
- Delete and recreate the menu
- Uninstall and delete the module, download a fresh copy and reinstall
- Downgrade the core to the same version as the other (working) site by overwriting the "wire" folder

I also deleted the content of the file compiler and cache folders.
TracyDebugger shows the same two php errors I quoted before but I don't know how to dig deeper, I don't have a lot of experience with PHP debugging.

Do you have Tracy installed? If yes, could you add the following before line 302 in MarkupMenuBuilder.module (e.g. on line 297) and tell me what Tracy reports?

d($menu);
// or this one
bd($menu);

      DEPRECATED
      I'm using this module in several projects, but it will likely not see any updates in the future. I'm not happy with it and I'm looking for ways to develop better solutions. RockTabulator was my first try, but I'm also not 100% happy with that. The tabulator library is great, but my module implementation is not. I hope to get a good solution soon, but it will be a lot of work...
      ---
      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.

      Support: Please note that this module might not be as easy and plug&play as many other modules. It needs a good understanding of agGrid (and JavaScript in general) and it likely needs some looks into the code to get all the options. Please understand that I can not provide free support for every request here in the forum. I try to answer all questions that might also help others or that might improve the module but for individual requests I offer paid support (please contact me via PM).
       
      Use Cases / Examples:
      Colored grid cells, Icons, Links etc. The Grid also has a "batcher" feature built in that helps communicating with the server via AJAX and managing resource intensive tasks in batches:

      Filters, PW panel links and instant reload on panel close:

      You can combine the grid with a chart library like I did with the (outdated) RockDataTables module:

      Hi there. I wrote a custom module for one of my projects. In fact I maybe want to use my module in other projects too. In order to be variable and customizable  I need to implement some custom hooks into my module. So I can afterwards hook into the my functions in order to modify them to match the needs of the new project.
      I tried simply defining functions with the '__' prefix. But that did not work. I'm imagining something like the following:
      <?php class MyClass { public function ___someFunction() { // Do something } } // ready.php $this->addHookBefore('MyClass::someFunction', function($event) { // some customization }); Is there a way to accomplish that?

      Hi everyone,
      Here's a new module that I have been meaning to build for a long time.
      http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-admin-actions/
      https://github.com/adrianbj/ProcessAdminActions
       
      What does it do?
      Do you have a bunch of admin snippets laying around, or do you recreate from them from scratch every time you need them, or do you try to find where you saw them in the forums, or on the ProcessWire Recipes site?
      Admin Actions lets you quickly create actions in the admin that you can use over and over and even make available to your site editors (permissions for each action are assigned to roles separately so you have full control over who has access to which actions).
       
      Included Actions
      It comes bundled with several actions and I will be adding more over time (and hopefully I'll get some PRs from you guys too). You can browse and sort and if you have @tpr's Admin on Steroid's datatables filter feature, you can even filter based on the content of all columns. 

      The headliner action included with the module is: PageTable To RepeaterMatrix which fully converts an existing (and populated) PageTable field to either a Repeater or RepeaterMatrix field. This is a huge timesaver if you have an existing site that makes heavy use of PageTable fields and you would like to give the clients the improved interface of RepeaterMatrix.
      Copy Content To Other Field
      This action copies the content from one field to another field on all pages that use the selected template.
      Copy Field Content To Other Page
      Copies the content from a field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Copy Repeater Items To Other Page
      Add the items from a Repeater field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Copy Table Field Rows To Other Page
      Add the rows from a Table field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Create Users Batcher
      Allows you to batch create users. This module requires the Email New User module and it should be configured to generate a password automatically.
      Delete Unused Fields
      Deletes fields that are not used by any templates.
      Delete Unused Templates
      Deletes templates that are not used by any pages.
      Email Batcher
      Lets you email multiple addresses at once.
      Field Set Or Search And Replace
      Set field values, or search and replace text in field values from a filtered selection of pages and fields.
      FTP Files to Page
      Add files/images from a folder to a selected page.
      Page Active Languages Batcher
      Lets you enable or disable active status of multiple languages on multiple pages at once.
      Page Manipulator
      Uses an InputfieldSelector to query pages and then allows batch actions on the matched pages.
      Page Table To Repeater Matrix
      Fully converts an existing (and populated) PageTable field to either a Repeater or RepeaterMatrix field.
      Template Fields Batcher
      Lets you add or remove multiple fields from multiple templates at once.
      Template Roles Batcher
      Lets you add or remove access permissions, for multiple roles and multiple templates at once.
      User Roles Permissions Batcher
      Lets you add or remove permissions for multiple roles, or roles for multiple users at once.
       
      Creating a New Action
      If you create a new action that you think others would find useful, please add it to the actions subfolder of this module and submit a PR. If you think it is only useful for you, place it in /site/templates/AdminActions/ so that it doesn't get lost on module updates.
      A new action file can be as simple as this:
      class UnpublishAboutPage extends ProcessAdminActions { protected function executeAction() { $p = $this->pages->get('/about/'); $p->addStatus(Page::statusUnpublished); $p->save(); return true; } } Each action:
      class must extend "ProcessAdminActions" and the filename must match the class name and end in ".action.php" like: UnpublishAboutPage.action.php the action method must be: executeAction() As you can see there are only a few lines needed to wrap the actual API call, so it's really worth the small extra effort to make an action.
      Obviously that example action is not very useful. Here is another more useful one that is included with the module. It includes $description, $notes, and $author variables which are used in the module table selector interface. It also makes use of the defineOptions() method which builds the input fields used to gather the required options before running the action.
      class DeleteUnusedFields extends ProcessAdminActions { protected $description = 'Deletes fields that are not used by any templates.'; protected $notes = 'Shows a list of unused fields with checkboxes to select those to delete.'; protected $author = 'Adrian Jones'; protected $authorLinks = array( 'pwforum' => '985-adrian', 'pwdirectory' => 'adrian-jones', 'github' => 'adrianbj', ); protected function defineOptions() { $fieldOptions = array(); foreach($this->fields as $field) { if ($field->flags & Field::flagSystem || $field->flags & Field::flagPermanent) continue; if(count($field->getFieldgroups()) === 0) $fieldOptions[$field->id] = $field->label ? $field->label . ' (' . $field->name . ')' : $field->name; } return array( array( 'name' => 'fields', 'label' => 'Fields', 'description' => 'Select the fields you want to delete', 'notes' => 'Note that all fields listed are not used by any templates and should therefore be safe to delete', 'type' => 'checkboxes', 'options' => $fieldOptions, 'required' => true ) ); } protected function executeAction($options) { $count = 0; foreach($options['fields'] as $field) { $f = $this->fields->get($field); $this->fields->delete($f); $count++; } $this->successMessage = $count . ' field' . _n('', 's', $count) . ' ' . _n('was', 'were', $count) . ' successfully deleted'; return true; } }  
      This defineOptions() method builds input fields that look like this:

      Finally we use $options array in the executeAction() method to get the values entered into those options fields to run the API script to remove the checked fields.
      There is one additional method that I didn't outline called: checkRequirements() - you can see it in action in the PageTableToRepeaterMatrix action. You can use this to prevent the action from running if certain requirements are not met.
      At the end of the executeAction() method you can populate $this->successMessage, or $this->failureMessage which will be returned after the action has finished.
       
      Populating options via URL parameters
      You can also populate the option parameters via URL parameters. You should split multiple values with a “|” character.
      You can either just pre-populate options:
      http://mysite.dev/processwire/setup/admin-actions/options?action=TemplateFieldsBatcher&templates=29|56&fields=219&addOrRemove=add
      or you can execute immediately:
      http://mysite.dev/processwire/setup/admin-actions/execute?action=TemplateFieldsBatcher&templates=29|56&fields=219&addOrRemove=add

      Note the “options” vs “execute” as the last path before the parameters.
       
      Automatic Backup / Restore
      Before any action is executed, a full database backup is automatically made. You have a few options to run a restore if needed:
      Follow the Restore link that is presented after an action completes Use the "Restore" submenu: Setup > Admin Actions > Restore Move the restoredb.php file from the /site/assets/cache/AdminActions/ folder to the root of your site and load in the browser Manually restore using the AdminActionsBackup.sql file in the /site/assets/cache/AdminActions/ folder I think all these features make it very easy to create custom admin data manipulation methods that can be shared with others and executed using a simple interface without needing to build a full Process Module custom interface from scratch. I also hope it will reduce the barriers for new ProcessWire users to create custom admin functionality.
      Please let me know what you think, especially if you have ideas for improving the interface, or the way actions are defined.

      This module is (yet another) way for implementing a cookie management solution.
      Of course there are several other possibilities:
      - https://processwire.com/talk/topic/22920-klaro-cookie-consent-manager/
      - https://github.com/webmanufaktur/CookieManagementBanner
      - https://github.com/johannesdachsel/cookiemonster
      - https://www.oiljs.org/
      - ... and so on ...
      In this module you can configure which kind of cookie categories you want to manage:

      You can also enable the support for respecting the Do-Not-Track (DNT) header to don't annoy users, who already decided for all their browsing experience.
      Currently there are four possible cookie groups:
      - Necessary (always enabled)
      - Functional
      - Statistics
      - Marketing
      - External Media
      All groups can be renamed, so feel free to use other cookie group names. I just haven't found a way to implement a "repeater like" field as configurable module field ...
      When you want to load specific scripts ( like Google Analytics, Google Maps, ...) only after the user's content to this specific category of cookies, just use the following script syntax:
      <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="statistics" data-src="/path/to/your/statistic/script.js"></script> <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing" data-src="/path/to/your/mareketing/script.js"></script> <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="external_media" data-src="/path/to/your/external-media/script.js"></script> <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing">console.log("Inline scripts are also working!");</script> The data-attributes (data-type and data-category) are required to get recognized by PrivacyWire. the data-attributes are giving hints, how the script shall be loaded, if the data-category is within the cookie consents of the user. These scripts are loaded asynchronously after the user made the decision.
      If you want to give the users the possibility to change their consent, you can use the following Textformatter:
      [[privacywire-choose-cookies]] It's planned to add also other Textformatters to opt-out of specific cookie groups or delete the whole consent cookie.
      You can also add a custom link to output the banner again with a link / button with following class:
      <a href="#" class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</a> <button class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</button>  
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂
      CHANGELOG
      You can find the always up-to-date changelog file here.

      As we often use Matomo (former known as Piwik) instead of Google Analytics we wanted to embed Matomo not only in the template code but also via the ProcessWire backend.
      That's why I developed a tiny module for the implementation.
      The module provides the possibility to connect to an existing Matomo installation with the classical site tracking and also via the Matomo Tag Manager.
      If you have also PrivacyWire installed, you can tell MatomoWire to only load the script, if the user has accepted cookies via PrivacyWire.
      To offer an Opt-Out solution you can choose between the simple Opt-Out iFrame, delivered by your Matomo installation, or a button to choose cookies via PrivacyWire.
      You'll find the module both in the module directory and via github:
      ProcessWire Module Directory MatomoWire @ GitHub MatomoWire @ Packagist ->installable via composer require blauequelle/matomowire I'm looking forward to hear your feedback!
