Menu Builder

Recommended Posts

So, it's a PW 3.xx issue. Once we have an official stable release of PW 3.xx I'll test all my modules to ensure they are version 3.xx-compatible.

Hey there, really great plugin. We love it!

One small question. Is there a way to render natural children before custom links in the menu? I didn't see anything in the options about that. 

eg attached ~ I'd like Customer Support to render after the children in the menu right now it renders before... 

Thanks!

Hi @johnteaksf,

Welcome to the forums. Currently, it is not possible and I see no easy way of doing it within the module. My suggestion is that you try (and adapt to your needs), the approach outlined on page 7 of this support board, specifically this post or this gist 

See the example array of the $key => $value pairs you'd be working with here. The important things to remember are that

  1. Custom Links will not have a 'pages_id' $key. So, that's one way to identify such links in your loop
  2. You will have to code the inclusion of the children yourself

Ran into an issue today where my pages were not showing in the menu builder interface. After some snooping, drop down page list is limited to 50 items. I found the fix on line 487 of the ProcessMenuBuilder.module. Changed "50" to "150" and all is well...

@SoccerGuy3,

I'm not sure you've seen this, in the Tab Settings, right under 'Pages selectable in menu'?

Quote

Optionally, you can specify a valid ProcessWire selector to limit the Pages that can be added to this menu (see Build Menu Tab). Otherwise, all valid pages will be available to add to the menu. By default, returned pages are limited to 50. You can override this by setting your own limit here. NOTE: This feature only works with Asm Select and Page Auto Complete.

There's also a note on line #486 to the same effect. The normal practice is not to directly edit modules. Your 150 will get overwritten next time you upgrade Menu Builder and all will not be well :).  What you want to do is to use Page Auto Complete or Asm Select and add limit=150 to the setting above ('Pages selectable in menu')

@all, @johnteaksf. I just noticed that the forum upgrade seems to have cannibalised some of the content in my post about the new getMenuItems() method which allows for building of complex menus. I have contacted @Pete to see if I could get the content restored from an old backup. Part of the missing content addressed the advantages of returning menu object items rather than array items...

Thx to @Pete, I've managed to restore the content of this post (about complex menu structures) that got lost during the upgrade.

Sometime after 3.0.21, PW had modifications that has messed up how PW's "Markup" field renders descriptions with HTML in them, which also affects MenuBuilder.

I've created an issue on the PW Github:
https://github.com/ryancramerdesign/ProcessWire/issues/1932

I can confirm that the latest commits released to 3.0.28 have fixed this issue.

I believe this still requires the module to be updated to support 3.x

Have tested and the InputfieldMarkup does now honor the Inputfield::entityEncodeText property.

Thanks!

Hi kongondo,

So, for the time being, does the plugin only work with v2.7.x of ProcessWire?

@SoapyDaz. Welcome to the forums I can only guarantee that it works in 2.7x...Others have reported issues regarding PW 3+. I am waiting for a stable release of PW 3+ before I officially support the module for that version.

Is ProcessMenuBuilder compatible with PW 3.0.32?

Based on the comments above it sounds like there are currently still some issues with 3.x. @kongondo is away at the moment, but I am sure he'll be looking at getting this 3.x compatible now that we are so close to a stable release.

Love this module. Using it in 2.7. It would be great if I could upgrade to 3.0.36 without issues. Any new workarounds?

Welcome to the forums @sreeb. Please have a look at this post (including the gists):

Use one of those custom functions (or one of your own) and use PHP logic to throw in your data-dropdown-menu in the first <ul>

Anyone has a solution for multi-language menus with custom menu items?

For pages localisation works using the default_title option. But this is not possible with custom menu items. And since the items’ title field is not a multi-language field, I have no idea how to solve this. But I’m probably not the first one stumbling over this. ;-)

If not, I think I have an idea how to build a solution using nested repeater fields.

      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.

      TrelloWire
      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".
      Changelog

    • By Robin S
      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.
