I'm working on a tiny textformatter module that searches the text for titles of other pages on your site and creates hyperlinks to them. I'm not sure if something like this exists already, but I haven't found anything in the module directory, so I wrote my own solution 🙂
It's not properly tested yet and is still missing some functionality I would like to implement, so at the moment it should be considered in BETA. Features include limiting the pages that will get searched by template, and adding a custom CSS class to the generated hyperlinks. As I'm writing this I noticed that it will probably include unpublished and hidden pages at the moment, so yeah ... it's still in development alright 😅
You can download the module from Github:
There's some more information in the readme as well.
Anyway, let me know what you think! I'm happy about any feedback, possible improvements or ideas on how to improve the module. Cheers.
This module provides a way to rapidly generate Page fields and the required templates and pages for use as a drop down select (or any other Page field type).
This module will let you create a full page field setup in literally a few seconds
To use, run Page Field Select Creator from the Setup Menu
Enter a Field Title, eg: Room Types Select Options - These will become the child pages that will populate the page field select options. There are two different options.
Option 1. TITLE FIELD ONLY - enter one option per line, eg:
Option 2. MULTIPLE FIELDS - the first line is used for the field names and the first field must be 'Title'. Subsequent lines are the values for the fields, eg:
Title, Number of Beds, Number of People, Kitchen Facilities
Single, 1, 1, Fridge Only
Double, 2, 2, Fridge Only
Suite, 3, 6, Full Kitchen
Choose the parent where the page tree of options will be created, eg a hidden "Options" parent page Select a "Deference in API as" option depending on your needs Choose the input field type Check whether "Allow new pages to be created from field?" should be enabled. As an example, if you entered "Room Types" as the field title, you would end up with all of the following automatically created:
a fully configured page field called: room_types MULTIPLE FIELDS OPTION - 3 additional fields - number_of_beds, number_of_people, kitchen a parent template called: room_types a child template called: room_types_items (with either just a title field, or with the 3 additional fields as well) a parent page called: Room Types a series of child pages named and titled based on the per line entries in the Select Options textarea The templates are configured such that the "room_types_items" child template can only have the main "room_types" template as a parent, and vice versa.
Then all you have to do is add the newly created page field to any template you want and you're ready to go!
You can grab it from:

This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

Update: MediaLibrary can now be found in the official module list.
Out of necessity, I've started to implement a simple media library module.
The basic mechanism is that it adds a MediaLibrary template with file and image fields. Pages of this type can be added anywhere in the page tree.
The link and image pickers in CKEditor are extended to allow quick selection of library pages from dropdowns. In the link picker this happens in the MediaLibrary tab, where you can also see a preview of the selected image. In the image picker, simply select a library from the dropdown at the top, everything else is handled by standard functionality.
I've put the code onto github. This module is compatible with ProcessWire 3.
Steps to usage:
Download the module's zip from github (switch to the pw3 branche beforehand if you want to test on PW 3.x) and unpack it into site/modules Click "Modules" -> "Refresh" in the admin Click "Install" for MediaLibrary For testing, create a page with the MediaLibrary template under home (give it an expressive title like 'Global Media') and add some images and files Edit a differnt page with a CKEditor field and add a link and an image to see the MediaLibrary features in action (see the screencap for details) Optionally, go into the module settings for MediaLibrary Note: this module is far from being as elaborate as Kongondo's Media Manager (and doesn't plan to be). If you need a feature-rich solution for integrated media management, give it a look.
Feel free to change the settings for MediaFiles and MediaImages fields, just keep the type as multiple.
There are some not-so-pretty hacks for creating and inserting the correct markup, which could probably be changed to use standard input fields, though I'm a bit at a loss right now how to get it to work. I've also still got to take a look at error handling before I can call it fit for production. All feedback and pointers are appreciated (that's also why I post this in the development section).
Edit 09.03.2016 / version 0.0.4: there's now also a "Media" admin page with a shortcut to quickly add a new library.
- The module now supports nested media libraries (all descendants of eligible media libraries are also selectable in link/image picker).
- There's a MediaLibrary::getPageMediaLibraries method you can hook after to modify the array of available libraries.
- You can switch between (default) select dropdowns or radio boxes in the module configuration of MediaLIbrary to choose libraries.
- Dropped compatibility for ProcessWire legacy versions by adding namespaces
- Allow deletion of libraries from the Media overview admin page
- Added an option to hide media libraries from the page tree (optionally also for superusers)

This module corrects a few things that I find awkward about the "Add New Template" workflow in the PW admin. I opened a wishlist topic a while back because it would good to resolve some of these things in the core, but this module is a stopgap for now.
Originally I was going to share these as a few standalone hooks, but decided to bundle them together in a configurable module instead.
Add Template Enhancements
A module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF. Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.
Derive label from name when new template added: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. The label can be added automatically when templates are added in admin, in admin/API, or not at all. There are options for underscore/hyphen replacement and capitalisation of the label. Edit template after add: when adding only a single template, the template is automatically opened for editing after it is added. Copy field contexts when cloning: this copies the field contexts (a.k.a. overrides such as column width, label and description) from the source template to the new template when using the "Duplicate/clone this template?" feature on the Advanced tab. Copy field contexts when duplicating fields: this copies the field contexts if you select the "Duplicate fields used by another template" option when adding a new template. Usage
Install the Add Template Enhancements module.
Configure the module settings according to what suits you.
