@tires - I like the new look!

Just in case you missed it, are you using @teppo's fork: https://github.com/teppokoivula/AdminBar which fixes a couple of critical bugs in the original.

It works in Teppos fork as well.

Just for me to understand, what if i install the module via the backend?
Will the files from the bugfixed fork be download or the old files from Apeisa?

The modules directory is still pointing to the original. I actually thought that the original didn't work at all with recent version of PW.

This is an area that I think PW really needs to work on - there are several forks which are critical updates, but are not really linked to anywhere official.

Oh! Thats a real problem and could be an security issue as well! 😕

Hi!

I want to edit child pages via edit links from the parent page.
I tried to add this code on the parent page

if($page->editable()) echo "<a href='/backend/page/edit/?id=".$childpage->id."&modal=1'>edit</a>";

Unfortunately the <ul id='adminbar'> ... don't load on the parent page.

What can i do?

Happy to move maintain of this module for @teppoif he is interested? I haven't had use for AdminBar in years.

No idea how to transfer this on module director, anyone?

@apeisa I think this is a pretty helpful module, especially for unexperienced users.

Which way / module do you use instead, to quick and easally edit pages?

I just have simple edit link somewhere in site. I have found that as best solution for clients. I also never allow front end editing and keep client using admin as much as possible.

That'd be fine with me. To be honest I've been meaning to fork it (under a new name) and take the concept a bit further – mostly visual / UI stuff, really 🙂

If you edit the modules directory entry you can change URLs and the "forum name of the author". Might be enough in the short term? Anything other than that probably requires help from Ryan.

I haven't been using this module much on my own projects either. For client sites I've been in the habit of always setting it up, though the modal / dropdown editing thingy is usually disabled. Basically it's just a simple way to provide necessary edit/add/profile/logout links (which should be there in the front-end anyway). Sure, I could add those links to some template file, but why bother when there's already a module for that 😉

Guys - I can transfer the entry in the modules directory to @teppo if you want. Or if you're planning on creating a new version with a different name, maybe it's a new module in the directory? Let me know if you want me to make any changes.

BTW - I am not a fan of frontend editing tools in general, but this one I actually don't mind providing for the right site - sometimes even for frontend only users.

I think trasferring it to me would be best, whatever this means in practice 😅

I'd rather keep the current name if it's an option. No need to confuse folks by new forks.

Some updates for AdminBar in the latest release (1.1.0):

  • Got rid of the jQuery dependency. Not a big deal, but that's still one setting and one dependency less. As a result the module probably won't work as expected in IE < 11, so if someone is still stuck with ancient browsers, it's better to stay with version 1.0.7 (tagged in the GitHub repository).
  • Some minor optimisations and tweaks here and there. Nothing major, really.

Just tested @tiress styles, and they seem to still work as expected, so most custom themes are likely unaffected 🙂

For the record, I'm thinking of releasing a 2.0.0 of this module pretty soon. This would be a breaking change, and require ProcessWire 3.x, PHP 7.x, etc. I'm also thinking of moving custom styles out of the module directory so that the whole directory can be safely removed during updates.

Added a note about new maintainer to the top of the first post, and updated the "grab the code" link. Might make some sense to rewrite the first post altogether, but the forum doesn't (as far as I know) allow replacing it, so creating a new support thread might make sense as well 🙂

AdminBar 2.0.1 released:

  • Plenty of updates behind the scenes. So far "end user" functionality remains largely the same, though.
  • New options for hooking – decent support for modifying generated output and adding all-new links and other features programmatically.
  • Extended theming support: the module now comes with three built-in themes ("original", "tires" per the theme submitted earlier by @tires, and "uikit"). Uikit is an adapted version of the top bar in admin, and it's now the default theme for the module. Each theme may include its own settings (Uikit, for an example, allows displaying/hiding some or all of its icons and the ProcessWire mark).
  • Custom theme support is still there, but requires a few modifications: custom theme needs to be selected via module config screen, you need to provide a directory where theme files live, and this directory has to contain (at least) a theme.css file (but optionally also theme.js for custom JS, theme.php for hooks, and config.php for custom module config settings).

Oh, and the module is installable via Composer now – just run "composer require teppokoivula/admin-bar" in your sites root directory, or the /site/ directory.

New requirements for 2.0.1 are ProcessWire >= 3.0.112 and PHP >= 7.1.0. For earlier version of ProcessWire or PHP, use release 1.1.5 (this version won't be updated anymore, but should work in ancient version of PW and PHP).

Below is a screenshot of the "Uikit" theme in action on the Wireframe website. In this case I've disabled the icons from the left side of the Admin Bar – by default each action there would have its own icon as well.

It's great to see new life breathed into this module - thanks @teppo. Two things I added to one installation of mine was the ability to edit the user's profile and the other was to restrict them to only be able to edit pages that they have created. Would you consider adding those features?

One other thought - I am a bit confused by "browse" vs the old "view" - browse to me suggests browsing through multiple pages, rather than viewing the current one which is what this link does. What do you think?

Thanks, @adrian. I've been using this module for a long time, and it has actually been quite fun to work on it 🙂

A profile edit button seems like a good idea. That was on my list for a while actually, but I wanted to get 2.x out sooner rather than later, so had to leave that for a later release 🙂

I think we'll also need a "select enabled links/features" option to avoid too much clutter. On many (most) of the sites I've built this feature, for an example, profile edit feature wouldn't have been particularly useful – users often edit their profiles really, really rarely – so I'd like to leave it to superusers to figure out which features are necessary.

(Could also make the feature selection configurable per user, if there's demand for such a feature.)

Restricting editable pages to ones the user has created seems to me like a relatively specific need – at least I haven't personally come across a project where this would've been particularly useful. As such, my initial view is that this might be best implemented as a per-site customisation. Unless, of course, I'm wrong and it's actually a commonly needed feature, in which case it may make sense to add a setting for it 🙂

Note that one key point about the hooks I've added is that it's now quite easy to customise what is displayed in the Admin Bar, and how. One example of this is what I've done with the "Uikit" theme, where I've added icons to existing items, and also the PW logo/mark as a new item. If you hook into AdminBar::getItems, you can easily modify the list, and – for an example – only show the edit link under specific circumstances. (And if this is a feature you require often, you can always bundle this, and any other modifications, into a separate module.)

By the way, I'm assuming that this would actually be just about displaying the edit link – not modifying permissions? Modifying permissions would, in my opinion, definitely belong to another module.

As far as I can tell, this item has been "Browse" since the beginning – at least for the past 8 years or so, according to GitHub 🙂

I'm slightly hesitant to change what I consider established terminology. Also, I don't personally see the problem: technically what this item being active means is that you're currently browsing the site. Kind of like "browse mode" vs. "edit mode". When you're in admin and want to view a specific page, "view" is indeed better word, but in this context I actually prefer "browse".

Again it's quite simple to modify this with a hook, of course, but I think I'd rather stick with current terminology for the default state.

Hey @teppo - firstly, sorry about the View / Browse thing - looks like I changed that on my copy a long time ago and didn't remember it was originally "browse". If it's easily hookable, that's great.

In regards to limiting edit to only pages the user has created - this is probably not a common use scenario - on the main site for me that uses AdminBar, I actually don't give users access to the admin at all - I use AdminBar as an easy (and powerful) way for them to create and edit content on the frontend. This is also the reason for having a profile edit button here because they can't actually access the one in the admin. And yes, showing the edit link only if they have created the page is only a "displaying the link" change, it's not actually affecting their permissions, but perhaps now that we have the "page-edit-created" permission, I should be using that anyway, rather than the hack I currently have in place on this old site.

Yeah, this should be an easy one. You can hook before or after AdminBar::getItems: either modify $args['strings'] before it gets passed to the method, or modify the resulting array of items before it is put to use 🙂

Makes sense. I would definitely take a route that affects actual permissions. Since AdminBar checks Page::editable() before displaying the edit link, if this was done using permissions, I believe it should just work out of the box, i.e. the edit link shouldn't display at all 🤔

Thanks for taking on this module @teppo.

A couple of minor styling observations with the Uikit theme...

2019-08-03_101357.png.a9c48faae6fe65c69b268a45ad17837a.png

The spacing around the buttons is a little inconsistent. And to my eye the triangle that indicates the active button feels like it's off-centre, because the icon feels like it is separate to the word rather than them both making up a single visual unit. So for the Uikit theme I'd be inclined to centre the active marker on the word alone rather on icon + word.

For pages where some buttons are not available...

2019-08-03_101710.png.abf3926c66c2ef9a7746603dfc2f1dc5.png

When "Edit" is not available the button text changes (the full stop looks out of place here), but when "New" is not available the button text is gone but the icon remains. Not sure but maybe unavailable buttons should not render at all?

Just in case anyone else is interested, this does the job nicely!

$this->addHookBefore('AdminBar::getItems', function($event) {
    $args = $event->arguments[0];
    $args['strings']['browse'] = 'View';
    $event->setArgument(0, $args);
});

Thanks for pointing these out. Latest release (2.1.0) includes improvements to spacings and the position of the triangle. Just for the record, the positioning is of the triangle was actually intended to be consistent with Admin Theme Uikit, where it's also off-centre, but I've now centered it in Admin Bar anyway 🙂

In 2.1.0 the problem with "add new" button has been fixed. My initial idea was indeed to leave these buttons out if they have no purpose, but opted to leave them as-is, because that's how it's always been. For the same reason I was slightly hesitant to remove the full stop: this change will break existing translations. I've now done it anyway, since it's a relatively small thing.

Note that 2.1.0 is actually bigger update than I anticipated. Class names have changed a bit, all themes had to be updated slightly, there's new JS, layout is now based on flexbox instead of floats, etc. So far things seem to work as expected (better than before), but let me know if there are any new issues 😅

Hi Teppo!
Great job!

I added some improvements to my theme and a little responsive part too.
Maybe you would like to add the new css to the module.

The new responsive view (max-width: 650px):

Hey folks! Just released AdminBar 2.2.0. Here's what's new:

  • New module config settings for selecting items displayed in the Admin Bar.
  • New items, disabled/hidden by default: "profile" (simple profile edit link) and "user" (basically the same concept as the profile edit dropdown menu in Admin).
    • If "user" is displayed, there's a config setting for items displayed under it as well.
  • New hookable method ___getData(). The returned array is converted to an object and stored as JSON (data-adminbar) on the Admin Bar element. This was mainly added for future JS features, but can be used by themes etc. as well.
    • Hookable methods and their primary purposes are now also documented in the README.md file.
  • Quite a bit of code was rewritten – again. I've been splitting some methods to smaller ones to improve maintainability, fixing small issues, improving accessibility to some degree (still needs a lot of work though), etc. Hopefully didn't cause too many new problems in the process... 🙂

Here's a screenshot with new items enabled, though one probably wouldn't want to enable profile and user (and all the user dropdown items) at the same time – and yes, my user name on this site is "admin", so it looks a bit silly when there's an "admin" link before and below it as well 😞

      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 Changelog
      2.0.0
      Feature: Copy multiple items at once! The fundament for copying multiple items was created by @Autofahrn - THX! Feature: Optionally you can disable the copy and/or paste dialog Bug fix: A fix suggestion when additional and normal repeater fields are present was contributed by @joshua - THX! 1.0.4
      Bug fix: Various bug fixes and improvements in live synchronization Bug fix: Items are no longer inserted when the normal save button is clicked. Only when the past button is explicitly clicked Feature: Support of multiple repeater fields in one page Feature: Support of repeater Min/Max settings Feature: Configurable roles and fields Enhancement: Improved clipboard management Enhancement: Documentation improvement Enhancement: Corrected few typos #1 1.0.3

      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.

      Hey folks!
      I'm happy to finally introduce a project I've been working on for quite a while now: it's called Wireframe, and it is an output framework for ProcessWire.
      Note that I'm posting this in the module development area, maily because this project is still in rather early stage. I've built a couple of sites with it myself, and parts of the codebase have been powering some pretty big and complex sites for many years now, but this should still be considered a soft launch 🙂
      --
      Long story short, Wireframe is a module that provides the "backbone" for building sites (and apps) with ProcessWire using an MVC (or perhaps MVVM... one of those three or four letter acronyms anyway) inspired methodology. You could say that it's an output strategy, but I prefer the term "output framework", since in my mind the word "strategy" means something less tangible. A way of doing things, rather than a tool that actually does things.
      Wireframe (the module) provides a basic implementation for some familiar MVC concepts, such as Controllers and a View layer – the latter of which consists of layouts, partials, and template-specific views. There's no "model" layer, since in this context ProcessWire is the model. As a module Wireframe is actually quite simple – not even nearly the biggest one I've built – but there's still quite a bit of stuff to "get", so I've put together a demo & documentation site for it at https://wireframe-framework.com/.
      In addition to the core module, I'm also working on a couple of site profiles based on it. My current idea is actually to keep the module very light-weight, and implement most of the "opinionated" stuff in site profiles and/or companion modules. For an example MarkupMenu (which I released a while ago) was developed as one of those "companion modules" when I needed a menu module to use on the site profiles.
      Currently there are two public site profiles based on Wireframe:
      site-wireframe-docs is the demo&docs site mentioned above, just with placeholder content replaced with placeholder content. It's not a particularly complex site, but I believe it's still a pretty nice way to dig into the Wireframe module. site-wireframe-boilerplate is a boilerplate (or starter) site profile based on the docs site. This is still very much a work in progress, but essentially I'm trying to build a flexible yet full-featured starter profile you can just grab and start building upon. There will be a proper build process for resources, it will include most of the basic features one tends to need from site to site, etc. --
      Requirements and getting started:
      Wireframe can be installed just like any ProcessWire module. Just clone or download it to your site/modules/ directory and install. It doesn't, though, do a whole lot of stuff on itself – please check out the documentation site for a step-by-step guide on setting up the directory structure, adding the "bootstrap file", etc. You may find it easier to install one of the site profiles mentioned above, but note that this process involves the use of Composer. In the case of the site profiles you can install ProcessWire as usual and download or clone the site profile directory into your setup, but after that you should run "composer install" to get all the dependencies – including the Wireframe module – in place. Hard requirements for Wireframe are ProcessWire 3.0.112 and PHP 7.1+. The codebase is authored with current PHP versions in mind, and while running it on 7.0 may be possible, anything below that definitely won't work. A feature I added just today to the Wireframe module is that in case ProcessWire has write access to your site/templates/ directory, you can use the module settings screen to create the expected directories automatically. Currently that's all, and the module won't – for an example – create Controllers or layouts for you, so you should check out the site profiles for examples on these. (I'm probably going to include some additional helper features in the near future.)
      --
      This project is loosely based on an earlier project called pw-mvc, i.e. the main concepts (such as Controllers and the View layer) are very similar. That being said, Wireframe is a major upgrade in terms of both functionality and architecture: namespaces and autoloader support are now baked in, the codebase requires PHP 7, Controllers are classes extending \Wireframe\Controller (instead of regular "flat" PHP files), implementation based on a module instead of a collection of drop-in files, etc.
      While Wireframe is indeed still in a relatively early stage (0.3.0 was launched today, in case version numbers matter) for the most part I'm happy with the way it works, and likely won't change it too drastically anytime soon – so feel free to give it a try, and if you do, please let me know how it went. I will continue building upon this project, and I am also constantly working on various side projects, such as the site profiles and a few unannounced helper modules.
      I should probably add that while Wireframe is not hard to use, it is more geared towards those interested in "software development" type methodology. With future updates to the module, the site profiles, and the docs I hope to lower the learning curve, but certain level of "developer focus" will remain. Although of course the optimal outcome would be if I could use this project to lure more folks towards that end of the spectrum... 🙂

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      Advantages
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no JavaScript or image required.
      Disadvantages
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode. There are 4 different view modes.
      View mode "Day" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records. View mode "Month" shows the total of all visitors per day from the first to the last day of the selected month. View mode "Year" shows the total of all visitors per month from the first to the last month of the selected year. View mode "Total" shows the total of all visitors per year for all recorded years. Please note that multiple visits from the same IP address within the selected period are counted as a single visitor.
      Settings
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      IP2Location
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      Dragscroll
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).
