I'll try to check this tomorrow. I'm currently pretty swamped between my holiday and another vacation coming up.

I'm currently pretty swamped between my holiday and another vacation coming up. 

My heart bleeds for you :)

Whenever you get the chance to look it will be greatly appreciated - turns out to be pretty painful to replicate all the checks in all scenarios - hopefully I have everything covered.

Just added some new features and a couple of bug fixes to the dev branch.

  1. Fixes for export mode with certain complex field types
     
  2. Added support for AJAX loading of BCE - especially useful if you are using the "New Tab" position option - requires PW 2.6.11+. This will make Page -> Edit load much quicker when you have lots of child pages.
     
  3. New Lister mode - this allows you to view (and configure the default columns/filters) all children under the current page. If you have ListerPro installed you can also use the Actions on the children. This also supports inline editing which makes for a very quick and easy way to edit the key fields on each child page.

Please let me know how the new AJAX load and Lister mode features work for you - I think I need some wider testing before pushing this to the master branch.

You can define the Lister config settings sitewide, and then provide overrides for each parent page that has been enabled under "Configurable Pages"

This screenshot shows the new Lister mode configured to show a predefined set of columns - a great way to preview the page content of child pages.

This shows the Lister Inline Edit mode - making for very quick editing of key fields in child pages.

seems i've to translate some strings again....you're really getting this as alternative editing interface for childpages instead of the normal pagetree....;)

Thank you very much for this nice piece of work - will testing soon.

Thanks @mr-fan!

I just put together another screenshot showing how you can use BCE as the equivalent of an inline PageTable field interface. 

Obviously these are just child pages and are not callable from a field, but it provides an excellent editing interface in a dedicated tab along with all the filtering options of lister. It also doesn't have any of the problems with a PageTable field regarding editing the content page directly and not having new pages automatically added, etc. The inline ajax editing is also a great bonus over the popup modal editing. 

Of course, this inline editing requires ListerPro, but I think it is worth it :)

Sorry for the stream of updates, but you can now embed BCE into the flow of fields within the Content Tab. This makes for even easier access to inline ajax editing of child pages.

It probably only makes sense for Lister, Edit, and Export modes.

Just pushed this option to the dev branch.

You are a real bad guy....with all this "stream updates" ;)

just one tick while testing...

https://github.com/adrianbj/BatchChildEditor/pull/4

(changes the labels on the field selection in the right language)

The issue with Lister view if there was images is a problem of the actuale PW dev i think?

For BCE i tested today very much and the next days german translation follows....while testing i've to say just one thing but i think i'm repeating me:

THIS IS A SUPER MEGA GREAT ADDON.... ^-^

some little testing things:

- Setting (Editor,Position, Load...) ->Position = Inline Fieldset, Insert After = title, load the fieldset open = true, ....Open Method is hidden if loading the fieldset collapsed but "Normal" or "Ajax" loading should be selectable while this setting enables the inline editing, too not only the loading?

- A "modal option" for lister mode should be a little additional option for the lister edit links, to edit childpages in modal mode...

This is really great if your wanna a easy and nice overview page on such root pages for the same kind of content like team, tags and articles or similar....i'll embed it in my current projects since it is much more flexible that a pagetable for this task!

And a additional call for others to buy Lister Pro...;)

Best regards mr-fan

@mr-fan - thanks for the great feedback, testing, and the PR for language labels. 

  1. Yep - I think the issue with the Lister view not working when there is an images field selected is a problem with PW dev / Lister
  2. I don't quite understand the Normal/Ajax load problem (I am sure I am missing something obvious so will look better later to see if I can figure out why that needs to be an available option when Open is checked.
  3. Yep - I was planning on making the Lister EDIT mode configurable to include the modal option, but there is something stopping it from working properly in modal mode - I think it's because Lister is in an iframe, but I will look again and see if I can get it to work - it would be much nicer for times when inline/ajax editing is not enough (or the user doesn't have ListerPro).

I am also thinking of making it possible to choose a different parent (or maybe even use a full PW selector) so you can make BCE grab children from somewhere else in the page tree - I think this would only work for Lister, Edit, and Export modes, but could be very cool - kinda like the ability of PageTable to specify a different parent, but even more powerful. I'll hopefully play with this in the next few days and post a new dev version then.

Ok, just pushed a new version to dev that adds support for choosing an alternate Parent. This allows you to bring in child pages from any other parent in the page tree (like I mentioned in my previous post above). It's a new option under the Content / Deletion / Protection tab - obviously only available for page specific config settings.

Also added an option to determine whether Filters/Columns/Actions are available in Lister mode - checkbox under the Lister mode settings tab.

This version might require a little extra testing regarding allowed templates for editing/adding pages.

Please let me know how it goes.

Somehow the "Own Tab" setting doesn't seem to work on a 2.6.14 installation, leaving the functionality inside of "Children" does work.

Not sure exactly what changed just yet, but it works for me so long as the Tab / fieldset name is only one word. Not sure if it's a bug that Ryan introduced or what, but if you use a multi word name, I run it through the PageName sanitizer and now it breaks the tab. Will investigate further later, but for now, one word names should work fine.

Sorry for the delay - while I was out for dinner I realized exactly what the issue was - I needed the fieldName sanitizer, not pageName. Not sure why it worked before - I guess 2.6.14 enforced no dashes in fieldset names?

Anyway, it is fixed now on the dev branch. if you don't want to switch to the dev branch at the moment, here are the changes you need:

I'm not sure if that's a Lister issue, but by default the pages should really be sorted by "sort" and not "-modified", which makes less sense in the module's context.

Edit: It would also be nice if there would be a way to exclude some fields (e.g. mode) from the new save-reminder functionality.

I'm just started to use BCE id a project and I like it, thanks!

One question: do you plan to add a toggle checkboxes to columns, eg. mark all / unmark all?

Sometimes I need to delete tens of pages at a time and this would speed up the process a lot.

(for example 72 pages this time, this happens when my form processor goes wrong :))

The easiest way to batch delete a huge number of pages is to enable the "Replace" mode and make sure you have the "Text/Paste" option checked under: Data entry / CSV import options > Page data options

Then simply empty the TextArea list of all the child pages and click save!

Please let me know if anything doesn't make sense - the config options in this module can take a while to get the hang of  :)

Sorry for the late response on this one - it is definitely on my list of things to do - unfortunately it doesn't seem to be as simple as it sounds - I am getting conflicts with the main Pages->Find Lister, but when I find some time, I'll definitely see if it can be fixed.

Sure it helps, thanks! The module seemed surprisingly simple at first but now I can see the whole beast :)

The thing I was trying to recommend is a checkbox that would toggle all checkboxes in the column, like this:

This would require only some lines of JavaScript.

Thanks - I do see your point regarding the check all - it would be especially useful for the hidden/unpublished options and I am sure something similar could be done for the delete option in edit view also.

Would you mind adding an Issue on Github for me so I don't forget to do this at some point, or better yet, a PR ;)

PR done! Feel free to review.

It doesn't check whether the items are checked or not, just toggles items on/off.

I don't think the shift-click is related to this module. That was the first thing I tried before adding the header checkboxes.

The rearrange feature doesn't work here, and clicking on the the headers doesn't sort the columns - I don't know if that is normal.

@tpr - thanks very much for the PR - the functionality looks awesome and will be a great timesaver - I'll try to review in the next couple of days. I haven't ever seen the header "order by" icons in BCE - I certainly didn't add them intentionally - have you added these?

@BernhardB - thanks for all the likes :) I just looked at your video and the only issue I can reproduce is the shift-click selecting checkbboxes both hidden and unpublished columns - not sure if I can fix this or not since it is core functionality, but I will take a look. I am not having any issues using the sort/move handles and the Add New is also working fine. I am using the dev version of BCE here, but I know it worked for me with stable before. I would be curious if you have the same issue with the dev version though. Could you also let me know if there are any console errors - looks like the javascript for BCE is not working at all for you. Is anyone else seeing these issues?

No, I only added the thead checkboxes, the sort icons were already there. It looks if there was some js file is missing or somehow it is blocked, but no signs of that in the console. I also got all the issues Bernard has. I will try the dev version later. Isn't it some module setting that blocks some features? (eg. add new page button)

that's strange. the issues are gone! i'm on 2.6.17 and the dev version of BCE. though i started with the master BCE and maybe the video was taken with that version. i can't remember, sorry :)

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.56
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy! :)

      As threatened in Ryan's announcement for 3.0.139, I built a little module for sliding toggles as a replacement for checkboxes. Styling of the input is CSS3 only (with all the usual caveats about older browsers), no JS necessary, and may still be a bit "rough around the edges", so to speak, since I didn't have much time for testing on different devices or brushing things up enough so I'd feel comfortable pushing it to the module directory. But here's the link to the GitHub repo for now:
      InputfieldSlideToggle
      Fieldtype and Inputfield that implements smartphone-style toggles as replacement for checkbox inputs. The visualization is CSS-only, no additional JS necessary.
      Status
      Still very alpha, use with caution!
      Features / Field Settings
      Size
      You can render the toggles in four different sizes: small, medium, large and extra large.
      Off Color
      Currently, "unchecked" toggles can be displayed either in grey (default) or red.
      On Color
      "Checked" toggles can be rendered in one of these colors: blue (default), black, green, grey, orange or red.
      Screenshots

      Hi Guys
      I needed to add extended functionalities for the InputfieldDatetime Module (module is from processwire version 2.7.3) because of a Request of Customer.
      So I duplicated the module and placed it under /site/modules/.
      I have added 3 new Settings to the InputfieldDatetime Module.
      1. Day Restriction - Restrict different days based on weekdays selection (e.g. saturday, sunday) - WORKING

       
      2. Time Slots - Define Time slots based on custom Integer Value (max is 60 for 1 hour) - WORKING

       
      3. Time Range Rules per Weekday - Define a minTime and MaxTime per Weekday (e.g. Opening Hours of a Restaurant) - NOT WORKING PROPERLY

       
      The Problem
      Time Slots and Day Restriction working fine so far. But the Time Range Rules per Weekday doesn't work right.
      What should happen is, that when you click on a date, it should update the minTime and maxTime of the Time Select.
      But the change on the select only happens if you select a date 2 times or when you select a date 1 time and then close the datepicker and reopen it again.
      The time select doesn't get change when you select a date 1 time and don't close the picker.
      Here is the whole extended InputfieldDatetime Module.
      The Files that I have changed:
      InputfieldDatetime.module InputfieldDatetime.js jquery-ui-timepicker-addon.js (https://trentrichardson.com/examples/timepicker/) - updated it to the newest version, because minTime and maxTime Option was only available in the new version  
      Thats the Part of the JS that is not working correctly:
      if(datetimerules && datetimerules.length){ options.onSelect = function(date, inst) { var day = $(this).datetimepicker("getDate").getDay(); day = day.toString(); var mintime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-mintime'); var maxtime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-maxtime'); console.log("weekday: "+day); console.log("minTime: "+mintime); console.log("maxTime: "+maxtime); var optionsAll = $(this).datetimepicker( "option", "all" ); optionsAll.minTime = mintime; optionsAll.maxTime = maxtime; $(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); $(this).datetimepicker(optionsAll); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); //$.datepicker._selectDate($(this).attr("id"),date); //$.datepicker._base_getDateDatepicker(); // var inst = $.datepicker._getInst($(this)); // $.datepicker._updateDatepicker(inst); /*$(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); InputfieldDatetimeDatepicker($(this), mintime, maxtime); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); */ // $(this).datetimepicker('option', {minTime: mintime, maxTime: maxtime}); } } Can you have a look and find out what the Problem is?

      This module tracks changes, additions, removals etc. of public (as in "not under admin") pages of your site. Like it's name says, it doesn't attempt to be a version control system or anything like that - just a log of what's happened.
      At the moment it's still a work in progress and will most likely be a victim of many ruthless this-won't-work-let's-try-that-instead cycles, but I believe I've nailed basic functionality well enough to post it here.. so, once again, I'll be happy to hear any comments you folks can provide
      https://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-changelog/
      https://github.com/teppokoivula/ProcessChangelog
      How does it work?
      Exactly like it's (sort of) predecessor, Process Changelog actually consists of two modules: Process Changelog and Process Changelog Hooks. Hooks module exists only to serve main module by hooking into various functions within Pages class, collecting data of performed operations, refining it and keeping up a log of events in it's own custom database table (process_changelog.) Visible part is managed by Process Changelog, which provides users a (relatively) pretty view of the contents of said log table.
      How do you use it?
      When installed this module adds new page called Changelog under Admin > Setup which provides you with a table view of collected data and basic filtering tools See attached screenshots to get a general idea about what that page should look like after a while.
      For detailed installation instructions etc. see README.md.

      If you are interested, you can test the current state of development:
      https://github.com/gadgetto/SnipWire
      Please note that the software is not yet intended for use in a production system (alpha version).
      If you like, you can also submit feature requests and suggestions for improvement. I also accept pull requests.
      ---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      (please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about)
