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.

Thank you kongondo! Very new to ProcessWire and was looking forward to this as a quick mean to get me up and running with menu building! Will keep an eye out for when the module is updated!

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.

      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.
      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

      Process Cache Control
      This module provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Clear the ProCache page render cache (if your site is using ProCache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Plans for improvements
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      PrevNextTabs Module
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/PrevNextTabs
      Processwire helper modules for adding page navigation within the editor.
      Overview
      This is a very simple module that adds Previous and Next links inline with the tabs on the page editor. Hovering over the tab shows the title of the previous or next page (using the admin's built in jqueryUI tooltips.)
      Usage
      This module is typically used during development where you or your editors need to traverse through pages for the purpose of proofing, flagging and/or commenting. Rather than returning to the page tree or lister, they can navigate with these links.
      Warnings
      If you are using PW version 2.6.1 or later, the system will prevent you from leaving the page if you have unsaved edits.
      For earlier versions, to avoid accidentally losing changes made to a page that might occur if a user accidentally clicks on one of these, make sure to have the Form Save Reminder module installed.
