Module: PageTableExtended

Recommended Posts

Perhaps read the documentation first: http://processwire.com/api/fieldtypes/images/

As I said: If your image field is called "myImageField" (I actually don't know how you called it, you mix a lot of names up there ;) ) and is set to a single image, you have to wrap in an image tag: 

<img src='{$myImageField->url}' alt=''>

The code I posted originally was my template. That only fits if you name your fields likewise. This only should demonstrate how that thing works. Your fields are probably named different, so you have to adjust your templates.

A small sidenote request:

I think it would be really great if you or someone else could supply eventually a basic set of demo templates for this module.

Nothing fancy, no css, just the proper php and markup with maybe a few comments where to put what.

Thanks for your consideration

Nope, I used only my correct image field names.

I read about outputting images before and used this already extensively on a recent website.

Thanks to PW I already made friendship with include, echo, foreach, if, get, and quite a few more, but I saw nowhere a tutorial about using fieldnames in curly brackets  {$image_1->url}. Are these special module tags or just plain php?

Anyway, thanks for your input so far.

Maybe I'll start fresh all over in a few days and see if it gets better somehow.

No, this is plain PHP. Since 5.3. I think and if short tags are activated in php.ini, which it is mostly. So <?php echo $var; ?> is the same as <?= $var ?>  is the same as echo "$var". Double quotes are necessary, echo '$var' won't work. The curly brackets are for encapsulating object references or functions. echo "$image->url" won't work, while echo "{$image->url}" will.

I have a fresh install (PW 2.5.3) and wanted to try out this module (version 0.2.0, installed through ModulesManager), but I keep getting this error: 

Error: Call to a member function of() on a non-object (line 101 of /Volumes/schijf/Users/eelke/Documents/Werk/Server/vida/site/modules/FieldtypePageTableExtended/InputfieldPageTableExtended.module) 
This error message was shown because you are logged in as a Superuser. Error has been logged.

My configuration is really simple:

- Template "Slide"

- Field "title"

- Field "image" (single image field)

 

- Template "Home"

- Field "title"

- Field "slideshow" (PageTableExtended, set to select "Slide" templates)

 

- For testing purposes "Slideshow"'s Table fields has been set to just include the Title column

- No extra CSS / other templates location has been set

- A stand-alone page using Slide works fine

- When disabling the "Render Layout instead of table rows?" option everything works fine

This is the complete Slide template (no header/footer is added) :

<?=$page->title?><br>
<?=$page->image->url?>

(Expected behaviour here is of course not to see the image rendered, but to get the filename).

Please grab a new copy / checkout the branch again. Or just delete line 101, it made more trouble than had benefits ;)

Good news everyone, I figured out what's going on here.

My problem only occurred when there were no pages linked. 

I could bypass the problem by first adding a slide, and only after that turning on the Render Layout toggle. 

Turns out the problem lies on line 101 as per warning, as this bit is outside the foreach-loop that defines $parsedTemplate.

       $parsedTemplate->page->of(false); // set OutputFormatting back to false, just in case

Moving this line to line 90 (inside the foreach) fixed it.

MademyDay, this is a fantastic addition to the sytem, thanks for all your hard work.

Just a question, do you personally see this more as something where you'd try and fully replicate your front-end output or just a means of displaying things in the backend in a more pleasing way? (I guess answer is probably both...)

Thx André.

Just a question, do you personally see this more as something where you'd try and fully replicate your front-end output or just a means of displaying things in the backend in a more pleasing way? (I guess answer is probably both...)

yep, both ;) My initial need for this was to have a possibility for clients to mix different layout templates. PageTable does exactly that while keeping the flexibility of normal templates. So the functionality was there but for not so tech-savvy clients it was too less visual. They want to see what they create. So this module was born. It is now your decision if you want an exact 1:1 copy of the frontend which results in more work but a nicer Interface or if you just want them to keep track of their edits/additions. I use the module in three sites at the moment (not public yet but one is shown in the video above). I generally wouldn't promise a 1:1 view of the frontend because clients then tend to "style" the content by themselves.  I have one client who always tries to fit the length of text lines in two columns. If the interface would kind of promise to be an 1:1 copy of the frontend (which it NEVER can be) it would be a false safety so I'd rather suggest to keep the layout model in this module but make no promises about exact styling.

Got a wee problem here.

If I use This in a template

<?php

if($options["pageTableExtended"]){

echo "<h3>{$page->headline}</h3>";

} else {

// load of other stuff

}

It is not rendering the headline field.

If I remove the IF then it works.

Turning debug mode on in the admin gives me:

Notice: :  Undefined index: pageTableExtended in /home/joss/public_html/site/templates/image.php  on line 3

What I do wrong?

Hey Joss,

sorry, totally oversaw your posting. Could you give some more information (more code)? Not sure why the error is given in the image.php...

Okay, I have a template called image.php that is used for creating a page with a single image and things like description and a load of rubbish.

However, these pages are really there to make up a gallery using Page Table Extended - but they have their own template file so they can be seen outside of the gallery on the site. Nothing complicated.

The template had headers and footers and tons of rubbish that is no good for page table extended, so have I use your thing:

<?php

if($options["pageTableExtended"]){

/* The gallery images are used in a page table extended in admin.

We cant display those with all the head and foot!

So in this section we do an alternate markup

*/

echo "<h3>{$page->headline}</h3>";


} else {

/* Back to the normal markup */

include("./includes/head.inc");


include("./includes/scripts.inc");

include("./includes/foot.inc");

}

But, when I go and look at the page in the admin that used the page table extended field, it does not display the headline, but just the error as above. 

I haven't added all the other fields yet, I am keeping it simple just to get it working.

Boy, this rioja is good!

Man, this Cabernet, too! And you are totally right. It obviously doesn't work with the current version. Seems I broke too much last time when merging stuff. Will take a look and report back (but not tonight, see first 4 words of this posting) :)

I also see that NOTICE. With using isset I got it go away. Not sure your switch still works with isset, I did not code the front end output yet.

By the way: what is the recommended way to output the content? 

I am really fallen in love with this extended module. I see the huge benefits. Very smart.

I want to use ist that way - like in the example movie - that the pagetable elements render as inluded "blocks". Like the repeater field did it.

masterpage

- block

- block

Do you have a code example? I am curious how $page works in that context (does it refers to masterpage or block)...

And how does the find work - does it find the masterpage if the searched for content is in a block?

(Too bad that there is no full example/tutorial online yet - I found only fragments of explanations spread all over the forum.)

Update:

rendering is so easy I could not believe it. The code worked for me (in case anyone has the same question):

foreach ($page->my_pagetable as $block) {
$block->render();
}

Now I could see for myself:  isset makes the NOTICE go away but the clever switch trick from Joss does not work either. :(

EDIT:

This switch seems to work for now:

<?php if(strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'],wire('pages')->get(wire('config')->adminRootPageID)->url) !== false) : ?>

I tried to update from 0.2.0 to 0.2.2 and have an issue: "Path to Templates" does not work as before.

I have a template directory "controllers/", which contains a template called "image-text.php". The "image-text.php" template has set "router.php" as alternative template name.

With 0.2.2, if I try to edit the page which has the pagetable field, I get the message

TemplateFile: Filename doesn't exist: [...]/site/templates/controller/router.php"

Sure, should be "[...]/site/templates/controller/image-text.php

If I comment out line 50 in 0.2.2 and insert

$parsedTemplate = new TemplateFile($this->config->paths->templates . $this->pathToTemplates  . $p->template->name . ".php");

(the line 50 from 0.2.0) all is well again.

adrianmak,

Have you installed this and given it a try? It's fairly straightforward (and really cool).

First: thx for the great module, I can scrap my first attempt to something similar!

Second: are there any thoughts on adding an option to add an already existing 'page' to the PageTableExtended field in the admin.

Since I build a type of 're-usable widgets' for my client, they want to re-use already created 'pages', thus re-using content.

Right now you can only create new 'pages', or I missed something along the way? :-)

I might dive in myself and see if I can add that myself, if time will let me, but I wonder how many others might consider this a welcome addition?

And should that become a PageTableExtendedExtension or a new version of PageTableExtended

Have a read of this thread about the main PageTable field: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/8177-page-table-howto/

It is possible to automatically add existing pages if they are under the same parent. If they aren't then you can add them with a small bit of API code which Macrura shows in that thread.

Hope that helps!

Hey,

the green buttons at the end of the Table: why theres not displaying the template-name (in your screenshot)?

I'd like to have something too, because users want to see something like "Text with to columns" instead of "layoutbox-text-columns_2".

How this works? Is there a solution in processwire, also for "Add New"-Elements.

Thank You!

      DEPRECATED
      I'm using this module in several projects, but it will likely not see any updates in the future. I'm not happy with it and I'm looking for ways to develop better solutions. RockTabulator was my first try, but I'm also not 100% happy with that. The tabulator library is great, but my module implementation is not. I hope to get a good solution soon, but it will be a lot of work...
      ---
      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.

      Support: Please note that this module might not be as easy and plug&play as many other modules. It needs a good understanding of agGrid (and JavaScript in general) and it likely needs some looks into the code to get all the options. Please understand that I can not provide free support for every request here in the forum. I try to answer all questions that might also help others or that might improve the module but for individual requests I offer paid support (please contact me via PM).
       
      Use Cases / Examples:
      Colored grid cells, Icons, Links etc. The Grid also has a "batcher" feature built in that helps communicating with the server via AJAX and managing resource intensive tasks in batches:

      Filters, PW panel links and instant reload on panel close:

      You can combine the grid with a chart library like I did with the (outdated) RockDataTables module:

      Hi there. I wrote a custom module for one of my projects. In fact I maybe want to use my module in other projects too. In order to be variable and customizable  I need to implement some custom hooks into my module. So I can afterwards hook into the my functions in order to modify them to match the needs of the new project.
      I tried simply defining functions with the '__' prefix. But that did not work. I'm imagining something like the following:
      <?php class MyClass { public function ___someFunction() { // Do something } } // ready.php $this->addHookBefore('MyClass::someFunction', function($event) { // some customization }); Is there a way to accomplish that? 
    • By adrian
      Hi everyone,
      Here's a new module that I have been meaning to build for a long time.
      http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-admin-actions/
      https://github.com/adrianbj/ProcessAdminActions
       
      What does it do?
      Do you have a bunch of admin snippets laying around, or do you recreate from them from scratch every time you need them, or do you try to find where you saw them in the forums, or on the ProcessWire Recipes site?
      Admin Actions lets you quickly create actions in the admin that you can use over and over and even make available to your site editors (permissions for each action are assigned to roles separately so you have full control over who has access to which actions).
       
      Included Actions
      It comes bundled with several actions and I will be adding more over time (and hopefully I'll get some PRs from you guys too). You can browse and sort and if you have @tpr's Admin on Steroid's datatables filter feature, you can even filter based on the content of all columns. 

      The headliner action included with the module is: PageTable To RepeaterMatrix which fully converts an existing (and populated) PageTable field to either a Repeater or RepeaterMatrix field. This is a huge timesaver if you have an existing site that makes heavy use of PageTable fields and you would like to give the clients the improved interface of RepeaterMatrix.
      Copy Content To Other Field
      This action copies the content from one field to another field on all pages that use the selected template.
      Copy Field Content To Other Page
      Copies the content from a field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Copy Repeater Items To Other Page
      Add the items from a Repeater field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Copy Table Field Rows To Other Page
      Add the rows from a Table field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Create Users Batcher
      Allows you to batch create users. This module requires the Email New User module and it should be configured to generate a password automatically.
      Delete Unused Fields
      Deletes fields that are not used by any templates.
      Delete Unused Templates
      Deletes templates that are not used by any pages.
      Email Batcher
      Lets you email multiple addresses at once.
      Field Set Or Search And Replace
      Set field values, or search and replace text in field values from a filtered selection of pages and fields.
      FTP Files to Page
      Add files/images from a folder to a selected page.
      Page Active Languages Batcher
      Lets you enable or disable active status of multiple languages on multiple pages at once.
      Page Manipulator
      Uses an InputfieldSelector to query pages and then allows batch actions on the matched pages.
      Page Table To Repeater Matrix
      Fully converts an existing (and populated) PageTable field to either a Repeater or RepeaterMatrix field.
      Template Fields Batcher
      Lets you add or remove multiple fields from multiple templates at once.
      Template Roles Batcher
      Lets you add or remove access permissions, for multiple roles and multiple templates at once.
      User Roles Permissions Batcher
      Lets you add or remove permissions for multiple roles, or roles for multiple users at once.
       
      Creating a New Action
      If you create a new action that you think others would find useful, please add it to the actions subfolder of this module and submit a PR. If you think it is only useful for you, place it in /site/templates/AdminActions/ so that it doesn't get lost on module updates.
      A new action file can be as simple as this:
      class UnpublishAboutPage extends ProcessAdminActions { protected function executeAction() { $p = $this->pages->get('/about/'); $p->addStatus(Page::statusUnpublished); $p->save(); return true; } } Each action:
      class must extend "ProcessAdminActions" and the filename must match the class name and end in ".action.php" like: UnpublishAboutPage.action.php the action method must be: executeAction() As you can see there are only a few lines needed to wrap the actual API call, so it's really worth the small extra effort to make an action.
      Obviously that example action is not very useful. Here is another more useful one that is included with the module. It includes $description, $notes, and $author variables which are used in the module table selector interface. It also makes use of the defineOptions() method which builds the input fields used to gather the required options before running the action.
      class DeleteUnusedFields extends ProcessAdminActions { protected $description = 'Deletes fields that are not used by any templates.'; protected $notes = 'Shows a list of unused fields with checkboxes to select those to delete.'; protected $author = 'Adrian Jones'; protected $authorLinks = array( 'pwforum' => '985-adrian', 'pwdirectory' => 'adrian-jones', 'github' => 'adrianbj', ); protected function defineOptions() { $fieldOptions = array(); foreach($this->fields as $field) { if ($field->flags & Field::flagSystem || $field->flags & Field::flagPermanent) continue; if(count($field->getFieldgroups()) === 0) $fieldOptions[$field->id] = $field->label ? $field->label . ' (' . $field->name . ')' : $field->name; } return array( array( 'name' => 'fields', 'label' => 'Fields', 'description' => 'Select the fields you want to delete', 'notes' => 'Note that all fields listed are not used by any templates and should therefore be safe to delete', 'type' => 'checkboxes', 'options' => $fieldOptions, 'required' => true ) ); } protected function executeAction($options) { $count = 0; foreach($options['fields'] as $field) { $f = $this->fields->get($field); $this->fields->delete($f); $count++; } $this->successMessage = $count . ' field' . _n('', 's', $count) . ' ' . _n('was', 'were', $count) . ' successfully deleted'; return true; } }  
      This defineOptions() method builds input fields that look like this:

      Finally we use $options array in the executeAction() method to get the values entered into those options fields to run the API script to remove the checked fields.
      There is one additional method that I didn't outline called: checkRequirements() - you can see it in action in the PageTableToRepeaterMatrix action. You can use this to prevent the action from running if certain requirements are not met.
      At the end of the executeAction() method you can populate $this->successMessage, or $this->failureMessage which will be returned after the action has finished.
       
      Populating options via URL parameters
      You can also populate the option parameters via URL parameters. You should split multiple values with a “|” character.
      You can either just pre-populate options:
      http://mysite.dev/processwire/setup/admin-actions/options?action=TemplateFieldsBatcher&templates=29|56&fields=219&addOrRemove=add
      or you can execute immediately:
      http://mysite.dev/processwire/setup/admin-actions/execute?action=TemplateFieldsBatcher&templates=29|56&fields=219&addOrRemove=add

      Note the “options” vs “execute” as the last path before the parameters.
       
      Automatic Backup / Restore
      Before any action is executed, a full database backup is automatically made. You have a few options to run a restore if needed:
      Follow the Restore link that is presented after an action completes Use the "Restore" submenu: Setup > Admin Actions > Restore Move the restoredb.php file from the /site/assets/cache/AdminActions/ folder to the root of your site and load in the browser Manually restore using the AdminActionsBackup.sql file in the /site/assets/cache/AdminActions/ folder I think all these features make it very easy to create custom admin data manipulation methods that can be shared with others and executed using a simple interface without needing to build a full Process Module custom interface from scratch. I also hope it will reduce the barriers for new ProcessWire users to create custom admin functionality.
      Please let me know what you think, especially if you have ideas for improving the interface, or the way actions are defined.

      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)
      - Functional
      - 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 data-attributes (data-type and data-category) are required 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>  
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂
      CHANGELOG

      As we often use Matomo (former known as Piwik) instead of Google Analytics we wanted to embed Matomo not only in the template code but also via the ProcessWire backend.
      That's why I developed a tiny module for the implementation.
      The module provides the possibility to connect to an existing Matomo installation with the classical site tracking and also via the Matomo Tag Manager.
      If you have also PrivacyWire installed, you can tell MatomoWire to only load the script, if the user has accepted cookies via PrivacyWire.
      To offer an Opt-Out solution you can choose between the simple Opt-Out iFrame, delivered by your Matomo installation, or a button to choose cookies via PrivacyWire.
      You'll find the module both in the module directory and via github:
      ProcessWire Module Directory MatomoWire @ GitHub MatomoWire @ Packagist ->installable via composer require blauequelle/matomowire I'm looking forward to hear your feedback!
