including now automatic selection of the page field value type and input field type based on the plurality of the field label

Such a cool wee surprise, love it.

Hi @adrian,

This will probably sound like an odd request given the name of the module...

What do you think about adding an option to not actually create a Page Reference field but only create the templates and pages (if any)?

The smart template naming and template restriction features are so useful that I often execute the module and then just delete the Page Reference field because I don't need it. I'm not sure if you or anyone else ever do this, but if I'm not the only one maybe it would be a handy addition to the module?

I've definitely done that before as well, so you're not the only one 🙂

You're right that it kinda makes the module name a bit weird, but then it's always been a bit of a mouthful anyway.

The thing is I am not sure what would be the most logical way to support this - everything is pre-populated based on the field label and its plurality. I am thinking that there should be a "Create Field" checkbox in the field settings that is checked by default, but if you uncheck, the field settings are hidden and the form starts at the "Page Settings" fieldset where you need to manually enter the Parent Page Title and that is used to automatically populate the parent and child template field lables/names (rather than coming directly from the field label? 

Any thoughts?

That sounds sensible. I guess Pluralize would need to be reinitialised with different settings depending on if a field is being created or not, so you could put that JS into a function with a parameter that switches the type of initialisation and then call that on window load and on checkbox change. Or there are probably other ways too.

Yeah, I am sure I can sort out the Pluralize issues.

Of course the really simple solution here would be keep the field settings even with the create field checkbox unchecked - this way nothing else would need to be changed - you'd just use the field label as the way to generate all the other things. It would work well, but would be a strange / confusing interface.

I'd be totally fine with that. It could be a "Don't create field" checkbox and you could even use some custom CSS to put it somewhere subtle and out-of-the-way. That way it's not distracting/confusing for people who use the module in the standard way but is available for those who want it.

@Robin S - the option is now available in the latest version. It feels a bit weird the way I have implemented it, but it's the quickest option for now.

      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)
      - 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 type has to be "optin" 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> This module is still in development, but we already use it on several production websites.
      You find it here: PrivacyWire Git Repo
      Download as .zip
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂

      Cacheable Placeholders
      This module allows you to have pieces of dynamic content inside cached output. This aims to solve the common problem of having a mostly cacheable site, but with pieces of dynamic output here and there.  Consider this simple example, where you want to output a custom greeting to the current user:
      <h1>Good morning, <?= ucfirst($user->name) ?></h1> This snippet means you can't use the template cache (at least for logged-in users), because each user has a different name. Even if 99% of your output is static, you can only cache the pieces that you know won't include this personal greeting. A more common example would be CSRF tokens for HTML forms - those need to be unique by definition, so you can't cache the form wholesale.
      This module solves this problem by introducing cacheable placeholders - small placeholder tokens that get replaced during every request. The replacement is done inside a Page::render hook so it runs during every request, even if the response is served from the template cache. So you can use something like this:
      <h1>Good morning, {{{greeting}}}</h1> Replacement tokens are defined with a callback function that produces the appropriate output and added to the module through a simple hook:
      // site/ready.php wire()->addHookAfter('CachePlaceholders::getTokens', function (HookEvent $e) { $tokens = $e->return; $tokens['greeting'] = [ 'callback' => function (array $tokenData) { return ucfirst(wire('user')->name); } ]; $e->return = $tokens; }); Tokens can also include parameters that are parsed and passed to the callback function. There are more fully annotated examples and step-by-step instructions in the README on Github!
      Features
      A simple and fast token parser that calls the appropriate callback and runs automatically. Tokens may include multiple named or positional parameters, as well as multi-value parameters. A manual mode that allows you to replace tokens in custom pieces of cached content (useful if you're using the $cache API). Some built-in tokens for common use-cases: CSRF-Tokens, replacing values from superglobals and producing random hexadecimal strings. The token format is completely customizable, all delimiters can be changed to avoid collisions with existing tag parsers or template languages. Links

      This is a lightweight alternative to other newsletter & newsletter-subscription modules.
      You can find the Module in the Modules directory and on Github
      It can subscribe, update, unsubscribe & delete a user in a list in Mailchimp with MailChimp API 3.0. It does not provide any forms or validation, so you can feel free to use your own. To protect your users, it does not save any user data in logs or sends them to an admin.
      This module fits your needs if you...
      ...use Mailchimp as your newsletter / email-automation tool ...want to let users subscribe to your newsletter on your website ...want to use your own form, validation and messages (with or without the wire forms) ...don't want any personal user data saved in any way in your ProcessWire environment (cf. EU data regulation terms) ...like to subscribe, update, unsubscribe or delete users to/from different lists ...like the Mailchimp UI for creating / sending / reviewing email campaigns *I have only tested it with PHP 7.x so far, so use on owners risk
      EDIT:
      Since 0.0.4, instructions and changelog can be found in the README only. You can find it here  🙂
      If you have questions or like to contribute, just post a reply or create an issue or pr on github, thanks!
