Batch Child Editor

Recommended Posts

Hey @Robin,

I don't have much time, but some quick answers to hopefully get you going:

1) It does support multi value fields, but it does so with a multi-value separator (default is: |) so you would need to concatenate your separate columns into one with a separator.

2) I believe it should support importing for different templates for child pages, but only for one to one column to field relationships. I think where you will have trouble is if you want to match specific columns to specific fields. This leads into your next question.

3) If you have a mismatch of columns to fields, then you will want to use the "Field Pairings" feature. This is available if you make the parent a "configurable page" in the module settings and then define the pairings on the settings tab of that parent page.

4) See answer to 3 🙂

5) Currently there is no match by ID - if you are doing an "update", then it's all based on the order of child pages. Maybe this feature could be added though.

Hope that helps.

Cheers!

@Robin S - to support the textareas pro field, I think you'll need to add a new block after these: https://github.com/adrianbj/BatchChildEditor/blob/85d81d7e7cb452c0d5ece34583e42c1f2f4aae50/BatchChildEditor.module.php#L1644-L1649

and a updateTextaresField() method to handle the import. This might actually work for other simple multivalue fieldtypes, so perhaps it could be:

elseif($f->type instanceof FieldtypeMulti) {

Not sure you timing on needing this. If you don't get to it (or decide to take a different approach), I'll try later in the week.

Thanks for the info @adrian. I think for this specific case I'll write a custom import script. I'm already using a custom script for exporting the data so will be pretty straightforward to whip up an equivalent import script. Will definitely spend some time playing with BCE later though - looks really nice.

Hi,

I can't get csv import to work for a ProField Multiplier. I have 14 columns/fields paired. The multiplier field is number 6. If mapped I get the import to work for all fields up until this field (no errors shown) this field and the following are empty. If I remove the mapping for this field everything else get's imported correctly. Is the syntax for CSV Field Pairing different when using multiplier? The field name is pm_numbers and I mapped like this:

1:title
.
.
6:pm_numbers

Most rows of the CSV has a single value the ones with more than one have them separated by a pipe |
Type is text but actually contains numbers in the CSV but that shouldn't matter right?

Any clues?

Yeah, currently BCE doesn't support the ProField Multiplier fieldtype 🙂

I'll see if I can get it working for you shortly.

Eureka! 🙂 Read in some post that it was supported, hence some loss of hair. Thanks!

@spiroue - please try the latest version - it should now work as expected for Multiplier fields.

Hi,

can this module import images?

I saw somewhere that it can but it does not work for me. Normal text fields and everything else works great but no images.

I also tried every possible path that I could think of, even remote url but no results. And no errors.

If this helps, I'm on latest PW 3.0.123, PHP 7.0.1 (tried higher version, no changes). Clean install of PW and only BCE as module.
Since I'm on Windows (10) I run Xampp or Wamp. Tried both, same result. Everything but images works.

Any ideas?

I only need one image per page but I have over 2000 images.

Hi @Deyan - sorry about that - looks like I broke it a while ago. Should be all fixed in the latest version. Let me know how you go.

Hi @adrian, thank you very much for your fast reply and fix. It works. I just tested it with few entries.

You are a life saver!

      Hi! I've created a small Inputfield module called InputfieldFloatRange which allows you to use an HTML5 <input type="range" ../> slider as an InputField. I needed something like this for a project where the client needs to be able to tweak this value more based on 'a feeling' than just entering a boring old number. Maybe more people can use this so I'm hereby releasing it into the wild.  
       
      What is it?
      The missing range slider Inputfield for Processwire. 
      What does it do?
      This module extends InputfieldFloat and allows you to use HTML5 range sliders for number fields in your templates.
      It includes a visible and editable value field, to override/tweak the value if required.  
      Features
      Min/max values Precision (number of decimals) Steps (Read more) Manual override of the selected value (will still adhere to the rules above) Usage
      Clone / zip repo Install FieldtypeFloatRange, this automatically installs the Inputfield Create new field of type `Float (range)` or convert an existing `Float`, `Integer` or `Text` field. To render the field's value simply echo `$page->field` Demo
      A field with Min=0, Max=1, Step=0.2, Precision=2

      Field with settings Min=0, Max=200, Step=0.25, Precision=2

       
      Todo
      Make the display-field's size configurable (will use the Input Size field setting)  Hopefully become redundant If it's usable for others I'll add it to the Modules list  
      Changelog
      v002
      - Fix issue where setting the step value to an empty value created problem with validation
      - Make the display-field optional 
      v001
      - Initial release
       
      Thanks!

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      Why?
      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Installation
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. Field widths entered into the Template Field Widths inputfield are only applied if the Edit Template form is submitted with the Template Field Widths inputfield in an opened state. "Collapsed" is the recommended setting if you think you might also use core inputs for setting field widths in a template context. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.

      This module allows you to automatically rename file (including image) uploads according to a configurable format
      This module lets you define as many rules as you need to determine how uploaded files will be named and you can have different rules for different pages, templates, fields, and file extensions, or one rule for all uploads. Renaming works for files uploaded via the admin interface and also via the API, including images added from remote URLs.   Github: https://github.com/adrianbj/CustomUploadNames
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-custom-upload-names/
      Renaming Rules
      The module config allows you to set an unlimited number of Rename Rules. You can define rules to specific fields, templates, pages, and file extensions. If a rule option is left blank, the rule with be applied to all fields/templates/pages/extensions. Leave Filename Format blank to prevent renaming for a specific field/template/page combo, overriding a more general rule. Rules are processed in order, so put more specific rules before more general ones. You can drag to change the order of rules as needed. The following variables can be used in the filename format: $page, $template, $field, and $file. For some of these (eg. $field->description), if they haven't been filled out and saved prior to uploading the image, renaming won't occur on upload, but will happen on page save (could be an issue if image has already been inserted into RTE/HTML field before page save). Some examples: $page->title mysite-{$template->name}-images $field->label $file->description {$page->name}-{$file->filesize}-kb prefix-[Y-m-d_H-i-s]-suffix (anything inside square brackets is is considered to be a PHP date format for the current date/time) randstring[n] (where n is the number of characters you want in the string) ### (custom number mask, eg. 001 if more than one image with same name on a page. This is an enhanced version of the automatic addition of numbers if required) If 'Rename on Save' is checked files will be renamed again each time a page is saved (admin or front-end via API). WARNING: this setting will break any direct links to the old filename, which is particularly relevant for images inserted into RTE/HTML fields. The Filename Format can be defined using plain text and PW $page variable, for example: mysite-{$page->path} You can preserve the uploaded filename for certain rules. This will allow you to set a general renaming rule for your entire site, but then add a rule for a specific page/template/field that does not rename the uploaded file. Just simply build the rule, but leave the Filename Format field empty. You can specify an optional character limit (to nearest whole word) for the length of the filename - useful if you are using $page->path, $path->name etc and have very long page names - eg. news articles, publication titles etc. NOTE - if you are using ProcessWire's webp features, be sure to use the useSrcExt because if you have jpg and png files on the same page and your rename rules result in the same name, you need to maintain the src extension so they are kept as separate files.
      $config->webpOptions = array(     'useSrcExt' => false, // Use source file extension in webp filename? (file.jpg.webp rather than file.webp) ); Acknowledgments
      The module config settings make use of code from Pete's EmailToPage module and the renaming function is based on this code from Ryan: http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3299-ability-to-define-convention-for-image-and-file-upload-names/?p=32623 (also see this post for his thoughts on file renaming and why it is the lazy way out - worth a read before deciding to use this module). 
       
       
      NOTE:
      This should not be needed on most sites, but I work with lots of sites that host PDFs and photos/vectors that are available for download and I have always renamed the files on upload because clients will often upload files with horrible meaningless filenames like:
