Menu Builder

Recommended Posts

I don't know if MSN can use a WireArray to build menus. It certainly can take a PageArray and build a menu out of that. The key here is that MSN relies on true/natural PW child-parent relationships (unless something has changed that I don't know about) to create menus. So, $page->children will make sense to it. You won't get $page->children in MB...at least not in that original sense.

My bad. It is PageArray, not WireArray.

Anyway, could you consider the scenario of somehow making it possible for MenuBuilder and MarkupSimpleNavigation to work together? Maybe providing PageArray output with some dynamically-made-up pages for external links?

I really like the idea of separating concerns. It seems to me very handy to have one module to build menu markup from anywhere (MarkupSimpleNavigation) and one module to be able to generate contents for it from custom user input (MenuBuilder). So you do not have to learn two ways of doing the same thing on one site.

What do you think? Could this be possible?

OK...sigh...because you asked nicely...
 
@note: 

  • Using this method, it makes no sense to create a menu with more than 1 level  in Menu Builder. The levels will be built using natural child-parent relationship in MSN
  • The CSS attritubes that can be set in MB have no meaning. I see no way of passing those to MSN
  • This was a one-time exercise. Currently, I am not able to support more features for this technique :-)

Step 1: Create a 1-level menu in MB
 
post-894-0-73568400-1464003482_thumb.png
 
Step 2:  Grab menu items from the menu created in MB in Step #1

$itemIDs = '';

$mb = $modules->get("MarkupMenuBuilder");
 
// options 1: get menu items as array
$menuItemsArray = $mb->getMenuItems('Ivan Gretsky', 1);
foreach($menuItemsArray as $m) $itemIDs .= $m['pages_id'] . '|'; 
$itemIDs = rtrim($itemIDs, '|');
 
        #### OR ####
 
//option 2: get menu items as object (WireArray)
$menuItemsObj = $mb->getMenuItems('Ivan Gretsky'); 
// implode the WireArray the cool way (PW 2.4+)
$itemIDs = $menuItemsObj->implode('|', 'pagesID');
 
// get a PageArray using menu item IDs
$itemsPageArray = $pages->find('id=' . $itemIDs);

 
Step 3: Output the menu using MSN

// pass the PageArray to MSN (optionally passing it MSN $options) to output your menu
$menu = $modules->get("MarkupSimpleNavigation");
echo $menu->render($options, null, $itemsPageArray);

Hi,

I got a problem, which makes me scratch my head a lot.

I have a menu item with two children, which are 'hidden', but not 'unpublished'. (A newsletter opt in page with landing pages for the double-opt-in-process.)

The menu generated looks like this (just the last 3 items):

                <li>
                    <a href='/pw/de/impressum/'>Impressum</a>
                </li>
                <li>
                    <a href='/pw/de/kontakt/'>Kontakt</a>
                </li>
                <li class="current">
                    <a href='/pw/de/newsletter/'>Newsletter</a>
                    <ul class="submenu">
                    </ul>
                </li>

As one can see, there is an empty ul in the last li. This causes some trouble with some jQuery - mobile - navigation generator.

What is puzzling me is, that in a second menu, which just contains this last 3 items (a footer in the non-mobile version) this ul does not appear. I could not find any differences in the menu settings. 

FYI: runs otherwise smoohtly on pw 3.08 dev.

Works fine here...(2.7.3)...How are you building and generating the menu? Using includeChildren? Anything else?

Thanks for your answer.

I can indeed make the empty ul make disappear by setting

'include_children' => 0

in the options. But then, also those items, which shall have their submenu, don't have one. 

Also, i can switch on an unintended empty ul in another menu, when i set include_children to 1 there.

My intent was not to suggest that you use include_children as a solution. What I needed is more information to reproduce this. I have been unable to replicate you issue so the more information I have the better :-)...How the menu is constructed, the options, your environment, etc...basically, the whole code if that is possible....

Ah, ok. I'll attach all files i think could be relevant. if you want more, just drop a line.

It's  the "newsletter" item, which has the empty ul.

Hi, I found a possible cause for the issue when tampering with my own menu function and running into the very same problem.

In line 351 of MarkupMenuBuilder.module 

if($p->numChildren) $hasNativeChildren = 1;// has children to add

is the function numChildren used. This function counts in default mode also hidden children. 

To make it count only visible children, it has to be used with a parameter:

if($p->numChildren(true)) $hasNativeChildren = 1;// has children to add

I tried it and it seems to work! :-)

Ok, this might just be a dumb question...But, has anyone had any success adding "<span class="caret"></span>" into a menu yet using bootstrap? My dropdown works great, save for the the fact that for the life of me I can not figure out how to get the dropdown li to have a caret.

OK, I'll try and replicate. As for the files, seems I wasn't clear, sorry. I just needed to see how you were calling menubuilder methods + the options you were passing to it :-)

Ha ha.. touche.. Well, I will get this all sorted out. I went with Example "1b", however, I am getting "Call to undefined function buildMenuFromObject()"... Any idea what could cause this?

Example 1b is for buildMenuFromArray() actually...buildMenuFromObject() is for example 1a. Whichever you choose, you need to define the function first before you can call it...(i.e. the function code first, then echo it...)

Thank you so much (and sorry for my confusion). I thought I had it, but now I am just getting 6 errors:

I see you copied and pasted more code than necessary. I have used your code and it works for me...

First, you need to make sure you have the latest version of Menu Builder which has the method getMenuItems(), i.e. version 0.1.5

$menu = 'Main';// pass a title of an existing menu (i.e. a menu already built and published in ProcessMenuBuilder)

// grab menu items as Normal Array with Menu items (argument #2 = 1)
$menuItems = $mb->getMenuItems($menu, 1);

/**

function buildMenuFromArray($parent = 0, $menu, $first = 0) {

  $out = '';
  $has_child = false;

  foreach ($menu as $id => $m) {

    $parentID = isset($m['parent_id']) ? $m['parent_id'] : 0;
    $newtab = isset($m['newtab']) && $m['newtab'] ? " target='_blank'" : '';
    // if this menu item is a parent; create the sub-items/child-menu-items
    if ($parentID == $parent) {// if this menu item is a parent; create the inner-items/child-menu-items

Thanks again.. Finally starting to understand what is going on, but now it is time to figure out how to give the "second nested ul" a different class than the wrapper ul. I thought I could pass that through with $options, but that doesnt seem to work. (sorry to drag this thread out).

Actually, my bad; the README and my post above wasn't very clear (have now updated them). Not all options apply to getMenuItems(). The reason is that if using MarkupMenuBuilder to output the menu for you, i..e using the method render(), the structuring of the menu (the <ul>, their CSS classes, etc) are taken care of by the method. In contrast, if using getMenuItems() what you get back are the menu items with all their relevant properties. The reasoning here is that you will use those properties as well as any other logic and/or options you want in your own custom recursive function (nested loops) where you have full control of the markup. That said, only 3 options (from the list of those applicable to render()) apply to getMenuItems(). These are default_title, default_class and current_class_level. default_class is applied to the  item's property $m['ccss_itemclass'].

Here is a revised navTwo.inc showing how you can pass custom options to the recursive function and applying the same as well as the 3 options that can be passed to getMenuItems(). head.inc is also slightly revised to pass $options to buildMenuFromArray()

- @note: The new 4th argument in the function

- @note: The custom options array

- @note: Complete code for previous examples 1-3 can be found in these gists

head.inc

<div class="collapse navbar-collapse container" id="bs-example-navbar-collapse-1">
 <?php include('./navTwo.inc');
  // your CUSTOM options to pass to the recursive function buildMenuFromArray()
  $options = array (
   'submenu_css_class' => 'nested-ul-css-class',//CSS Class for sub-menus; you can use whatever index you want
   'other_custom_option' => 'foo',
   'first_class' => 'first',
   'last_class' => 'last',
   'current_class' => 'current',
   'has_children_class' => 'parent',
 );

  echo buildMenuFromArray(0, $menuItems, 0, $options);

 ?>
</div><!-- /.navbar-collapse -->

navTwo.inc

<?php
$mb = $modules->get('MarkupMenuBuilder');// get Menu Builder
$menu = 'Main';// pass a title of an existing menu (i.e. a menu already built and published in ProcessMenuBuilder)

// @note: only these 3 options will work with getMenuItems(); Only pass options if you need to; it is not mandatory 
$options4getMenuItems = array('default_title' => 1, 'default_class' => 'list-group', 'current_class_level' => 4);

// grab menu items as Normal Array with Menu items (argument #2 = 1)
#$menuItems = $mb->getMenuItems($menu, 1); OR
$menuItems = $mb->getMenuItems($menu, 1, $options4getMenuItems);// if passing options

Thanks again Kongondo! I appreciate all the help. I actually figured it out about 5 mins ago (forgot to check back on the forums). It feel good to have actually learned through your help and the various comments what actually is occurring and not blindly copying. Your module has made things so much easier (once I learned).

Hey kongondo,

thanks for thi great module again. A few days ago I figured out, that the output of the main menu builder header is not formated in html. Maybe it has to do with some other modules installed, because I never had the issue, that the output is not "rendered" as HTML.

Does anyone else have this issue, too?

Hey, 

 

thanks for your fast reply. I attached a screenshot with my current setup. You are right, the page is multilingual. 

Maybe you cna give me a hint, how I can solve this?

It seems, that the HTML is not rendered correctly. I tried to edit the HTML of the decription field and put Markdon tags in the description, which are displayed correct.

      Format Datetime fields as Carbon instances.
      You can find the latest release and the complete readme on Github.
      Installation
      composer require daun/datetime-carbon-format Usage
      All Datetime fields will now be formatted as Carbon instances instead of strings. Some examples:
      // $page->date is a Datetime field // Output format: j/n/Y echo $page->date; // 20/10/2020 echo $page->date->add('7 days'); // 27/10/2020 echo $page->date->format('l, F j'); // Monday, October 20 echo $page->date->year; // 2020 echo $page->date->diffForHumans(); // 28 minutes ago Frontend only
      The ProcessWire admin seems to expect datetime fields to be strings. This module will only return Carbon instances on frontend page views.
      Date output format
      When casting a Carbon instance to a string (usually when outputting the field in a template), the field's date output format will be respected.
      Links
      GitHub • Readme • Carbon docs

      This is a module that allows you to automatically create Trello cards for ProcessWire pages and update them when the pages are updated. This allows you to setup connected workflows. Card properties and change handling behaviour can be customized through the extensive module configuration. Every action the module performs is hookable, so you can modify when and how cards are created as much as you need to. The module also contains an API-component that makes it easy to make requests to the Trello API and build your own connected ProcessWire-Trello workflows.
      Warning: This module requires ProcessWire 3.0.167 which is above the current stable master release at the moment.
      Features
      All the things the module can do for you without any custom code: Create a new card on Trello whenever a page is added or published (you can select applicable templates). Configure the target board, target list, name and description for new cards. Add default labels and checklists to the card. Update the card whenever the page is updated (optional). When the status of the card changes (published / unpublished, hidden / unhidden, trashed / restored or deleted), move the card to a different list or archive or delete it (configurable). You can extend this through hooks in many ways: Modifiy when and how cards are created. Modify the card properties (Target board & list, title, description, et c.) before they are sent to Trello. Create your own workflows by utilizing an API helper class with many convenient utility methods to access the Trello API directly. Feedback & Future Plans
      Let me know what you think! In particular:
      If you find any bugs report them here or on Github, I'll try to fix them. This module was born out of a use-case for a client project where we manage new form submissions through Trello. I'm not sure how many use-cases there are for this module. If you do use it, tell me about it! The Trello API is pretty extensive, I'll try to add some more helper methods to the TrelloWireApi class (let me know if you need anything in particular). I'll think about how the module can support different workflows that include Twig – talk to me if you have a use-case! Next steps could be a dashboard to manage pages that are connected to a Trello card, or a new section in the settings tab to manage the Trello connection. But it depends on whether there is any interest in this 🙂 Links

      ProcessWire InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDuplicate
      Thanks to the great ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use a content module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      This module extends the commercial ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" by the function to duplicate repeater items from one page to another page. The condition is that the target field is the same matrix field from which the item is duplicated. This module is currently understood as proof of concept. There are a few limitations that need to be considered. The intention of the module is that this functionality is integrated into the core of RepeaterMatrix and does not require an extra module.
      Check out the screencast
      What the module can do
      Duplicate multible repeater items from one page to another No matter how complex the item is Full support for file and image fields Multilingual support Support of Min and Max settings Live synchronization of clipboard between multiple browser tabs. Copy an item and simply switch the browser tab to the target page and you will immediately see the past button Support of multiple RepeaterMatrix fields on one page Configurable which roles and fields are excluded Configurable dialogs for copy and paste Duplicated items are automatically pasted to the end of the target field and set to hidden status so that changes are not directly published Automatic clipboard update when other items are picked Automatically removes old clipboard data if it is not pasted within 6 hours Delete clipboard itself by clicking the selected item again Benefit: unbelievably fast workflow and content replication What the module can't do
      Before an item can be duplicated in its current version, the source page must be saved. This means that if you make changes to an item and copy this, the old saved state will be duplicated Dynamic loading is currently not possible. Means no AJAX. When pasting, the target page is saved completely No support for nested repeater items. Currently only first level items can be duplicated. Means a repeater field in a repeater field cannot be duplicated. Workaround: simply duplicate the parent item Dynamic reloading and adding of repeater items cannot be registered. Several interfaces and events from the core are missing. The initialization occurs only once after the page load event Attention, please note!
      Nested repeaters cannot be supported technically. Therefore a check is made to prevent this. However, a nested repeater can only be detected if the field name ends for example with "_repeater1234". For example, if your MatrixRepeater field is named like this: "content_repeater" or "content_repeater123", this field is identified as nested and the module does not load. In version 2.0.1 the identification has been changed so that a field ending with the name repeater is only detected as nested if at least a two-digit number sequence follows. But to avoid this problem completely, make sure that your repeater matrix field does NOT end with the name "repeater".

      A new module that hasn't had a lot of testing yet. Please do your own testing before deploying on any production website.
      Custom Paths
      Allows any page to have a custom path/URL.
      Note: Custom Paths is incompatible with the core LanguageSupportPageNames module. I have no experience working with LanguageSupportPageNames or multi-language sites in general so I'm not in a position to work out if a fix is possible. If anyone with multi-language experience can contribute a fix it would be much appreciated!
      Screenshot

      Usage
      The module creates a field named custom_path on install. Add the custom_path field to the template of any page you want to set a custom path for. Whatever path is entered into this field determines the path and URL of the page ($page->path and $page->url). Page numbers and URL segments are supported if these are enabled for the template, and previous custom paths are managed by PagePathHistory if that module is installed.
      The custom_path field appears on the Settings tab in Page Edit by default but there is an option in the module configuration to disable this if you want to position the field among the other template fields.
      If the custom_path field is populated for a page it should be a path that is relative to the site root and that starts with a forward slash. The module prevents the same custom path being set for more than one page.
      The custom_path value takes precedence over any ProcessWire path. You can even override the Home page by setting a custom path of "/" for a page.
      It is highly recommended to set access controls on the custom_path field so that only privileged roles can edit it: superuser-only is recommended.
      It is up to the user to set and maintain suitable custom paths for any pages where the module is in use. Make sure your custom paths are compatible with ProcessWire's $config and .htaccess settings, and if you are basing the custom path on the names of parent pages you will probably want to have a strategy for updating custom paths if parent pages are renamed or moved.
      Example hooks to Pages::saveReady
      You might want to use a Pages::saveReady hook to automatically set the custom path for some pages. Below are a couple of examples.
      1. In this example the start of the custom path is fixed but the end of the path will update dynamically according to the name of the page:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'my_template') { $page->custom_path = "/some-custom/path-segments/$page->name/"; } }); 2. The Custom Paths module adds a new Page::realPath method/property that can be used to get the "real" ProcessWire path to a page that might have a custom path set. In this example the custom path for news items is derived from the real ProcessWire path but a parent named "news-items" is removed:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'news_item') { $page->custom_path = str_replace('/news-items/', '/', $page->realPath); } }); Caveats
      The custom paths will be used automatically for links created in CKEditor fields, but if you have the "link abstraction" option enabled for CKEditor fields (Details > Markup/HTML (Content Type) > HTML Options) then you will see notices from MarkupQA warning you that it is unable to resolve the links.
      Installation
      Install the Custom Paths module.
      Uninstallation
      The custom_path field is not automatically deleted when the module is uninstalled. You can delete it manually if the field is no longer needed.
