Has anyone ever had the issue that changes to a menu won't save anymore? After adding page number 89 moving items isn't possible anymore as the change won't be saved. This is the case independent of the last page I add or where I move that page.

We had this issue recently, it's because of the limit of Input variables in your PHP configuration. Adjusting the value of max_input_vars in your php.ini file to a larger number will increase the number of items you can save 🙂

Hello,

I need some help please. 😉 With "configuring the menu" and adding some additional stuff to my mobile menu, but not really sure how to do that.

I would like my Logo to show in my mobile menu, and I would also like the language switcher there, but cant figure it out. I tried all sorts of things but cant make it work.

My html looks like this: In html the logo is there, but when I try tu give it to menubuilder code it is gone.

        <div id="ro-hamburger" class="ro-hamburger visible-xs pull-right"><span></span></div>
      </div>
    </nav>

but there is no logo inside. I also tried with both upper codes and added images to them but not working.

And second question, I would also like to put language switcher to it, not sure how to combine this ...

Spoiler

<ul class="ro-nav-content text-center">
<?php
$savedLanguage = $user->language;

foreach($languages as $language) {
  if($language->id == $savedLanguage->id) continue;
  if(!$page->viewable($language)) continue;
  $user->language = $language;
  echo "<li><a href='$page->url'>$language->title</a></li>";
}
$user->language = $savedLanguage;

?>
</ul>

I hope u understand what Im trying to do. Any help would be appreciated. 😉

Thank you

HI there, 

Very nice module thank you.

I would like to put a class in each of the ul of the sub menus I have in my menu. It seems that through the admin interface or the $option of the render() function I can't achieve this. Is this correct ?

Then would the only  way to do this is the getMenuItems() function and coding the menu's markup ?

Thanks

Hey guys, I've been using the MenuBuilder for quite a few projects (thanks @kongondo for the great module and support!), however this time it is my first when I need to use a menu in the sidebar if some pages are added to it. It all works as soon as I add a few items to the menu, however there is one little issue I am having - not knowing how to show the block title ONLY if the menu contains some items added. I've been looking through the module functions etc. to figure it out, however for some reason I am always getting the items count as 1 even though I've added 9.

<?php
        //Building the array of options. The ones that are not used can be removed
        //They are left here for the learning process only.
        $options = array(
         'wrapper_list_type' => 'ul',// ul, ol, nav, div, etc.
         'list_type' => 'li',// li, a, span, etc.
         'menu_css_id' => '',// a CSS ID for the menu
         'menu_css_class' => 'category-list',// a CSS Class for the menu
         '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'
        );

        // Render the menu by title
        $cat_menu = $menu->render(1108, $options);
        echo "This menu has: " . count($cat_menu);
        echo $cat_menu;

       ?>	

The big question here is, how can I add a check if my menu with a specific ID/title would contain some items or is just empty in order to show or not the block title etc.?

Hi @MilenKo. Apologies for the late response.

I am not sure what you mean by block title.

However, this count() will not work:

echo "This menu has: " . count($cat_menu);

as $menu->render() returns a string. PHP will return 1 (a boolean) but if you had Tracy Debugger it would throw an error about using count() on a non-iterable variable.

If you need to know the number of items you can use the method getMenuItems() introduced here and documented here. You can use the method to either return menu items as a an normal PHP array or as a WireArray. In the examples outlined in the first link above, you can use getMenuItems() with a custom recursive function to render your menu however you wish. In your case though, you can just use it to check number of items. For example:

$mb = $modules->get('MarkupMenuBuilder');
// menu items as PHP Array
$menuItemsAsArray = $mb->getMenuItems(1108, 1, $options);// param 2 = 1: return array
echo 'Number of Menu Items (count($menuItemsAsArray)): ' .  count($menuItemsAsArray);
// menu items as WireArray Object
$menuItemsAsObject = $mb->getMenuItems(1108, 2, $options);// param 2 = 2: return WireArray (the default)
echo 'Number of Menu Items ($menuItemsAsObject->count): ' .  $menuItemsAsObject->count;

In case you just want to know if a menu item is not empty, you can simply check if the return value of $cat_menu is a string. For example:

 // Render the menu by title
 $cat_menu = $menu->render(1108, $options);
 if(is_string( $cat_menu)) {
	echo $cat_menu;
 }

This, however, will not give you the count as explained above. You'd need getMenuItems() for that.

In case you want to know if a menu item is a parent/has children, etc, you can use the WireArray option of getMenuItems() as shown above and use ProcessWire WireArray methods to filter items. For instance:

$someChildItems = $menuItemsAsObject->find("parentID=2");
// OR
$someParents = $menuItemsAsObject->find("isParent=1");

I hope this helps.

Hi guys, hi @kongondo,

I have a menu which I built using your code from some pages back:

Quote

function buildMenuFromObject($parent = 0, $menu, $first = 0) {
    if(!is_object($menu)) return;

    $out = '';
    $has_child = false;

    foreach ($menu as $m) {
        $newtab = $m->newtab ? " target='_blank'" : '';
        // if this menu item is a parent; create the sub-items/child-menu-items
        if ($m->parentID == $parent) {// if this menu item is a parent; create the inner-items/child-menu-items
            // if this is the first child
            if ($has_child === false) {
                $has_child = true;// This is a parent
                if ($first == 0){
                    $out .= "<ul class='mainMenu js-mainMenu clearfix'>\n";
                    $first = 1;
                }
                else $out .= "\n<ul class='subMenu js-subMenu'>\n";
            }

            $class = $m->isCurrent ? ' class="current"' : '';

            // a menu item
            $out .= '<li' . $class . '><a href="' . $m->url . '"' . $newtab . '>' . $m->title;
            // if menu item has children
            if ($m->isParent) {
                $out .= '</a><span class="icon submenu__expand js-submenu__expand icon-cheveron-down"></span>';
            }

            else $out .= '</a>';

            // call function again to generate nested list for sub-menu items belonging to this menu item.
            $out .= buildMenuFromObject($m->id, $menu, $first);
            $out .= "</li>\n";

        }// end if parent

    }// end foreach

    if ($has_child === true) $out .= "</ul>\n";

    return $out;

}

 

which works fine, although I have a question regarding the submenus. I have selected to include all native descendants of my page into the submenu. which generates something like this:

<ul>
  <li> Projects </li>
  <ul class="submenu">
  	<li class="submenuItem">
      Project 1
    </li>
    <li class="submenuItem">
      Project 2
    </li>
    ... -> render all remaining Project objects which are children of the Projects Page
  </ul>

This, however, bloats my submenu, if I have a lot of projects. Is there some option to limit the amount of projects that are rendered, to e.g. 10 and then provide a link as the last project item which leads to a project list view which displays all projects?

I just don't quite get the code; e.g. where the code fetches the native descendants of the ``projects`` page.

Any help would be appreciated.

Update: Menu Builder 0.2.6

Changelog

  1. Added the properties numChildren, totalChildren and showMoreText for use with getMenuItems()
  2. Added option maximum_children_per_parent to limit the maximum number of (included) children a menu item can return. Thanks @derelektrischemoench for inspiration/request.
  3. Fixed CSS issue that affected menu items' trash cans in the backend. Thanks @duncan.
  4. Refactored code to improve efficiency.

In dev branch only for testing.

I have also updated the docs, especially around getMenuItems().

@derelektrischemoench,

See this gist for an example recursive menu builder function that uses maximum_children_per_parent and showMore.

OK, breaktime over, back to Padloper! :-).

Hi kongondo and hi all guys!

Is there a way to put a new field (ex: description) on each menu entries? I like to have something like:


Title: Home
Description: My beautiful home page
URL: /my-beautiful-url/

I wait your feedback.

Thanks and have a nice day!

Hi @e0f,

Currently, this is not doable out of the box. However, using the method getMenuItems() (see a few posts up for examples), you can use the property pagesID (or index pages_id if getting back array of menu items) to get ($pages->get($m->pageID), for example) the respective ProcessWire pages of the menu items and return the custom fields you want, e.g. description. Having said that, I would not recommend this. It seems like an overkill and may not be very performant based on the number of menu items and other factors.

Perhaps if you could explain your use case, I would see if I can add an option to retrieve the values of simple fields (text, integers, dates, etc) for use with getMenuItems(). MenuBuilder is primarily for building navigation menus. From your example, it seems you are using it for a different purpose? Maybe provide a fuller example so that I can get my head around this.

Thanks for answer kongondo.

I need to have a little description appear under my mega menu.

In frontend menu I'll have something like "Home" and under it a little description of the menu entry (ex: my beautiful home page).

So each menu voices will have a custom description on desktop version.

I hope is all clear now. Let me know if you need more infos!

Have a nice day,

Update: Menu Builder 0.2.7

Changelog

  1. Added the property extra_fields for use with getMenuItems() ONLY. This enables returning the page field values for some selected Fieldtypes. For example, the description field in the page corresponding to the menu item. Thanks @e0f for the inspiration. Full documentation of this new feature is available here.
  2. Menus in multi-lingual sites can now be called using their multi-lingual titles or names irrespective of the current user's language. For example, a multi-lingual site with English, German and Finnish languages could have a menu with the respective titles My Awesome Menu / Mein Tolles Menü / Oma Mahtava Valikko. Any of these titles can be used in the code to call the menu (using render() or getMenuItems() methods). [PS: blame you-know-who for these language translations :-)]
  3. Changed the way new menus are added. Only one menu can be added at a time. The title field/input is multi-lingual ready. See screens below.
  4. Improved the backend GUI when viewing locked menus. Only the menu items and and exit button are shown in such cases.
  5. Fixed bug that allowed access to unpublished menus for frontend rendering.
  6. Updated the documentation
  7. Refactored code to improve efficiency.

In dev branch only for testing.

i added new option in menu options because i needed css class in <a> tag, searched for a while and didn't find any example so had to do the following.

$NavOptions = array(
                                'wrapper_list_type' => 'ul', // ul, ol, nav, div, etc.
                                'list_type' => 'li', // li, a, span, etc.
                                'menu_css_id' => 'navbarSupportedContent', // a CSS ID for the menu
                                'menu_css_class' => 'navbar-nav ml-auto', // a CSS Class for the menu
                                'current_class' => 'active',
                                'default_title' => 0, // 0=show saved titles;1=show actual/current titles
                                'default_class' => 'nav-item', // a CSS class to apply to all menu items
                                'ahref_class'=>'nav-link'
                            );

 

added following line in MarkupMenuBuilder.module
$this->set('linkClass', isset($options['ahref_class']) ? $options['ahref_class'] : '');

// if $iTag is empty, apply css id and classes to <a> instead
if(!$iTag) $out .= "\n\t<a{$itemCSSID}{$class}{$newtab} href='{$m->url}'>{$m->title}</a>";
else $out .= "\n\t<{$iTag}{$itemCSSID}{$class}>\n\t\t<a{$newtab} href='{$m->url}' class='{$o->linkClass}'>{$m->title}</a>";

suggest me if there is any better way out!!

It was decided early on to add classes to the <li> instead of the <a>, as it was the usual practice.

Getting the <a> via CSS is quit easy, for instance...

#menu li a {
/* your styles here*/
}

You can be as specific as  you want with your CSS.

Not a good idea as this will get overwritten next time you upgrade Menu Builder :-).

i know this but i have no permission to modify customer css file so had to do this, i suggest you to add the same option in future update so it will be more flexible 🙂

Hi there,

I'm with @Neeraz - it would be great to have the possibility to also add a class to the link element (for what reason ever).
Maybe @kongondo it is not a big deal for you to add that functionality to the module? That would be great 👌.

Have a nice Friday 😉

Using this module for the first time, menu created and saved but does not render. Looks like by default it's saved as un-published.

I was expecting to find publish settings as part of the menu settings, however the only way to publish it is via the page tree: Admin > Setup > Menu Builder > *Menu*
Is this intentional? I think from a usability perspective being able to publish the menu as you create it would be helpful.

The only way I could get menu builder to render items was update line 218, MarkupMenuBuilder to:
For some unknown reason, PW doesnt skip language.

// skip inactive language page @note: PW will do this automatically for 'include_children'
                if(!$p->viewable($language&& $languagecontinue;

I don't know what version you are using but there has always been a save as unpublished or published during menu creation and an unpublish/publish action that can be applied to existing menu items in the menus list/table. See the big green shiny buttons 😁.

Create menu before version 027

Create menu version since version 027

      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.

      This module implements the website live chat service from tawk.to. Actually the module doesn't have to do much. It just need to inserted a few lines of JavaScript just before the closing body tag </body> on each side. However, the module offers additional options to display the widget only on certain pages.

      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.
