If everyone has the same login username, then absolutely - that is what the session login throttle is designed to do. I think your quickest solution will be to disable the SessionLoginThrottle module.

Just wanted to get that option to you quickly - I'll post some better solutions in a minute.

I just testet it and now it seems to work fine!
Thanks for your support! 
I have deactivated the SessionLoginThrottle module. Is this bad for security reasons or is it save to leave it deactivated?

No, you shouldn't leave it deactivated - it is designed to reduce dictionary login attacks.

I have just messaged Ryan to see if I can find out more about the behavior of the module also recording successful logins. If that can't be changed, then you may need to set up your own access control if you want to give all users just one login account. Stay tuned - I don't want to send you down the path of setting up something else until I hear from Ryan about the behavior of this module.

Around line 672 when checking template files you could add the $config->templateExtension too, eg.

if (!$item->isDir() && in_array(pathinfo($item, PATHINFO_EXTENSION), array(wire('config')->templateExtension, 'php', 'inc'))) {

This allows selecting twig/latte/etc files from the module settings.

However I'm still trying to figure out why $loginForm is not available for me (using Latte). Surely it's something in my code, but any chance to add $loginform to page, etc. $this->wire('page')->loginForm = $loginForm (before line 291)? This would allow using the form anywhere in the selected template. I'm using this now and it's working fine.

@adrian

How about adding "required" html5 attributes to username/pass input fields? Plus updated the above screenshot to a non-stock login form :)

Hi @tpr - I have made all those requested changes and also several other updates to the module. Please let me know if you find any problems.

Great, thanks! Everything's working fine at first look.

$p->loginForm = $loginForm; // added to allow support for latte

It's not exclusive to Latte as you can use it anywhere in regular PHP templates.

Today I noticed an issue with protecting child pages. Links to child pages under a protected page was accessible to everyone, even though I've checked to protect child pages (at Page level). I've added session redirects to solve it temporarily but I'm curious if this happens for others too.

Also the site search could find content from protected child pages. Is the module taking care of this or should developers handle such cases?

Sure, it's just a little weird though as $loginForm should work everywhere in regular templates - at least it has in my testing.

No problem here - would you mind doing a little testing in the isProtected() function to see where it might be failing. Is $pagesToCheck including the parent which is protected? Is $this->matchedParent being populated with this page? etc

This module is designed to protect access to pages - I am not sure that it should actually prevent pages from being found. I am happy to revisit though if you think otherwise - it should be easy enough to do.

Ok, I'll check what could cause child pages being accessible, probably a few days later.

If it's not too complicated I would welcome an option to exclude protected pages from being found. If I lock a room for a reason I don't want anyone to sneak in through the window :)

Yeah, but they won't be able to get in the window, they'll just be able to see the curtains :) 

I would think you'd still want your users to be able to search for the members area - no?

Sure, they could only have a peek :)

In this particular project it's not relevant if users could find the Members Area or not, but in general yes, it should be findable.

So doesn't that mean that you agree that there isn't a need to prevent search from finding protected pages?

I guess perhaps it all depends on what you are returning on your search page - if you are providing a preview of some of the content, then I guess this becomes an issue. I guess I'll make it configurable.

BTW - thanks for looking into the child pages issue - I can't imagine why it's not working at your end.

Yes, it depends. Perhaps only its title should be findable though I guess this adds another level of complexity. Does the module add a page property eg isProtected to let devs handle this? Sorry I can't look into the code atm.

What's more important imo is to exclude child pages from search, if they are also protected. Perhaps the abovementioned isProtected property could help here too.

@tpr - I am attaching a new version of the module which rejigs things a bit. It now lets you do:

if($page->protected()) {

It returns false or the id of the page that is protecting the checked page, which could be itself, or the closest protected parent.

This should let you handle your search results however you want. 

I thought about automatically removing protected pages from results, but I think there are just too many contingencies to do it this way - I think it makes more sense to let the dev handle it via protected()

Please let me know how this goes and also if it by chance fixes your issue with child pages not being protected.

Thanks!

Search results

I can easily exclude the protected pages now but I guess there's no way I could exclude them in the initial $pages->find() query, where search results are populated. This leads to improper number of results if I exclude pages when outputting the results list, or if I filter them in memory beforehands then pagination will broke. This is no surprise because $page->protected is not a page field so I cannot use "protected=''" in the selector. I've tried using addHookProperty but $pages->find() doesn't respect that ($page->protected worked fine though).

Anyway, I can live with it - but please correct me if I'm missing something.

Child pages

In case of child page protection I found that if I set no template in the module settings, then the protected child page loads with the loginForm, which is the expected behaviour. This unfortunately doesn't fit my current needs because I would prefer only one login page for members, so that's why I do a redirect:

if ($page->id !== $memberLoginPage->id && $page->protected() && !($user->isSuperUser() || $user->hasRole('member'))) {
    $session->redirect($memberLoginPage->url);
    $this->halt();
}

Would it be possible to have an option under "Protect child pages" like "Redirect to protected parent on direct access"?

Hey @tpr - thanks for the report.

I'll take a look at the issue with protected() and trying to make the property available in find() selectors - not sure if this is possible or not.

Regarding the child issue - it is working here if use the default login form and also if I choose a login template - that is both options seem to be working fine. Perhaps it's a Latte issue when using wireRenderFile like I am around line 304 ?

I don't really understand this - users should see the same login form no matter what page they try to visit (because it renders the template you have chosen) - I don't see any reason to redirect - again, maybe a latte issue? Any chance you could try the module without latte just to see if everything works as expected? Maybe I am still not understanding though?

@tpr - just had a quick play with a protected property and selectors. Runtime properties only work with in memory page arrays, so you would have to do:

$allResults = $pages->find("template=basic-page");
$notProtectedResults = $allResults->find("protected=0");

I think you already figured this out :)

Anyway, that example works with the attached version.

What are your thoughts on the best approach here?

I guess you could add a couple of hidden fields to your page templates to store the "Protect children" and "Allowed roles" values using a save hook. Then make use of these fields in your find selector.

Yeah,  I was hoping to avoid that - I never like polluting all templates with settings type fields if I can avoid it, but maybe in this case it is the only option. I guess if it's set to hidden and system so it can't be manually deleted (but deletion is taken care of during module uninstall), and its checked status would be toggled when checking the "Protect this page" checkbox on the Settings tab, then it wouldn't be too invasive. The other catch of course is that protecting a parent that has thousands or more children could result in a very slow page save because it would need to update the status of all those children as well.

Sorry, I wasn't proposing that as a module feature - just a suggestion for @tpr to consider. I think it's something that most users don't need so I agree it shouldn't be implemented by the module.

Rather than do that I was thinking a person would use has_parent in their $pages->find() selector.

$page_protects_children = implode('|', $pages->findIDs("protect_children=1"));
$results = $pages->find("has_parent!=$page_protects_children"); // actual selector would have more conditions

Adding a field manually should work, thanks. As I wrote, memory selectors would make pagination to fail, but with the extra field it will be OK. I only need to add it to the protected parent and use has_parent.

I'll check the child issue without latte too.

I need the redirect because if one tries to access a child page by knowing its url, I would like redirect him to the protected parent. This page has different template with the login form.

Child page protection is kinda working OK but there's an issue if you select a login template and use fields that are also available on the child pages, eg. $page->body, which is quite common. Sensitive data may be rendered (eg. with $page->body), because the actual (child) page fields are passed to the login template file.

One needs to check $page->loginForm (or $loginform, $page->protected/protected()) and display the form or other page content. In such cases a redirect to protected parent (the login page) would be safer.

Btw you uploaded the "ProtectedMode" module here, is that intentional?

That's not the intention of this approach - the login template you select should be a dedicated template file (it shouldn't really even have a PW template associated with it). The only thing it should echo is the head, footer, etc and $loginForm - that is it! I believe if you follow that approach everything should work as expected and be secure with no need to redirect. Sorry if that's not clear.

Sorry about that - silly mistake - I have now replaced it with the PageProtector version I was referencing.

Thanks, that wasn't clear to me reading the module description/notes fields. Perhaps I was thinking in a "redirect mode" instead of wireRenderFile so I thought all other fields will come from the protected parent and not from the actual child page. Maybe it's only me but perhaps a warning text could be added to the description field to not to place other dynamic content to this template file?

Btw, if I would like to add multi-language content before the $loginForm do I need to use $myLoginPage->body or is there another way? (this was the purpose of using $page->body in my login template, having a dynamic text coming from the admin).

Perhaps I should add another variable ($ppid - protected page id) to the array that is passed to wireRenderFile. This would be the id of the page that is protected, whether that is the current page, or the parent which is protecting it. That way you could do a $pages->get($ppid)->body to get the appropriate text. Would that be useful? Attached version has this if you want to try it out.

Does that idea also help with your multi-language content question? I don't think I am totally following what you need there.

      Some introduction...
      This module is experimental and there are probably bugs - so treat it as alpha and don't use it on production websites.
      I started on this module because there have been quite a few requests for "fake" or "invisible" parent functionality and I was curious about what is possible given that the idea sort of goes against the PW page structure philosophy. I'm not sure that I will use this module myself, just because I don't really see a long list of pages under Home (or anywhere else) as untidy or cluttered. I would tend to use Lister Pro when I want to see some set of pages as a self-contained group. But maybe others will find it useful.
      At the moment this module does not manipulate the breadcrumb menu in admin. So when you are editing or adding a virtual child the real location of the page is revealed in the breadcrumb menu. That's because I don't see the point in trying to comprehensively fool users about the real location of pages - I think it's better that they have some understanding of where the pages really are. But I'm open to feedback on this and it is possible to alter the breadcrumbs if there's a consensus that it would be better that way.
       
      Virtual Parents
      Allows pages in Page List to be grouped under a virtual parent.
      This module manipulates the page list and the flyout tree menu to make it appear that one or more pages are children of another page when in fact they are siblings of that page.
      Why would you do that instead of actually putting the child pages inside the parent? Mainly if you want to avoid adding the parent name as part of the URL. For example, suppose you have some pages that you want to be accessed at URLs directly off the site root: yourdomain.com/some-page/. But in the page list you want them to be appear under a parent for the sake of visual grouping or to declutter the page list under Home.
      Example of how the page structure actually is

      Example of how the page structure appears with Virtual Parents activated

      How it works
      This module identifies the virtual parents and virtual children by way of template. You define a single template as the virtual parent template and one or more templates as the virtual child templates. Anytime pages using the child template(s) are siblings of a page using the parent template, those child pages will appear as children of the virtual parent in the page list and tree menu.
      You will want to create dedicated templates for identifying virtual parents and virtual children and reserve them just for use with this module.
      Features
      Adjusts both page list and tree flyout menu to show the virtual parent/child structure, including the count of child pages. Works everywhere page list is used: Page List Select / Page List Select Multiple (and therefore CKEditor link dialog). Intercepts the "Add page" process in admin, so that when an attempt is made to add a child to a virtual parent, the child is added where it belongs (the next level up) and the template selection is limited to virtual child templates. Intercepts moving and sorting pages in the page list, to ensure only virtual children may be moved/sorted under the virtual parent. Superusers have a toggle switch at the bottom of the page list to easily disable/enable Virtual Parents in order to get a view of what the real page structure is. Usage
      Install the Virtual Parents module.
      In the module config, enter pairs of parent/child template names in the form virtual_parent_template=virtual_child_template. If needed you can specify multiple pipe-separated child templates: virtual_parent_template=child_template_1|child_template_2. One pair of template names per line.
      There is a checkbox in the module config to toggle Virtual Pages on and off, but it's more convenient to use this from the page list.
      Notes
      It's important to keep in mind the real location of the virtual child pages. This module is only concerned with adjusting the appearance of page list and tree menu for the sake of visual grouping and tidiness. In all other respects the virtual children are not children of the virtual parent at all.
      It's recommended to select an icon for the virtual parent template (Advanced tab) so virtual parents are marked out in the page list as being different from normal parent pages.
      Do not place real children under a virtual parent. There is some protection against this when moving pages in the page list, but when it comes to changing a page's parent via the Settings tab the only protection is common sense.

      Wire Mail SMTP

      An extension to the new WireMail base class that uses SMTP-transport

      This module integrates EmailMessage, SMTP and SASL php-libraries from Manuel Lemos into ProcessWire. I use this continously evolved libraries for about 10 years now and there was never a reason or occasion not to do so. I use it nearly every day in my office for automated composing and sending personalized messages with attachments, requests for Disposition Notifications, etc. Also I have used it for sending personalized Bulkmails many times.

      The WireMailSmtp module extends the new email-related WireMail base class introduced in ProcessWire 2.4.1 (while this writing, the dev-branch only).
       
      Here are Ryans announcement.



      Current Version 0.2.7
      get it from the Modules Directory Install and Configure

      Download the module into your site/modules/ directory and install it.

      In the config page you fill in settings for the SMTP server and optionaly the (default) sender, like email address, name and signature.
      You can test the smtp settings directly there. If it says "SUCCESS! SMTP settings appear to work correctly." you are ready to start using it in templates, modules or bootstrap scripts.


      Usage Examples
      The simplest way to use it:
      $numSent = wireMail($to, $from, $subject, $textBody); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody); // or with a default sender emailaddress on config page This will send a plain text message to each recipient.
       
      You may also use the object oriented style:
      $mail = wireMail(); // calling an empty wireMail() returns a wireMail object $mail->to($toEmail, $toName); $mail->from = $yourEmailaddress; // if you don't have set a default sender in config // or if you want to override that $mail->subject($subject); $mail->body($textBody); $numSent = $mail->send(); Or chained, like everywhere in ProcessWire:
      $mail = wireMail(); $numSent = $mail->to($toEmail)->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); Additionaly to the basics there are more options available with WireMailSmtp. The main difference compared to the WireMail BaseClass is the sendSingle option. With it you can set only one To-Recipient but additional CC-Recipients.
      $mail = wireMail(); $mail->sendSingle(true)->to($toEmail, $toName)->cc(array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com')); $numSent = $mail->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); The same as function call with options array:
      $options = array( 'sendSingle' => true, 'cc' => array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com') ); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody, $options); There are methods to your disposal to check if you have the right WireMail-Class and if the SMTP-settings are working:
      $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { // Uups, wrong WireMail-Class: do something to inform the user and quit echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; return; } if(!$mail->testConnection()) { // Connection not working: echo "<p>Couldn't connect to the SMTP server. Please check the {$mail->className} modules config settings!</p>"; return; } Following are a ...


      List of all options and features


      testConnection () - returns true on success, false on failures


      sendSingle ( true | false ) - default is false

      sendBulk ( true | false ) - default is false, Set this to true if you have lots of recipients (50+)


      to ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      cc ($recipients) - only available with mode sendSingle, one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      bcc ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

       
      from = 'person@example.com' - emailaddress, can be set in module config (called Sender Emailaddress) but it can be overwritten here

      fromName = 'Name Surname' - optional, can be set in module config (called Sender Name) but it can be overwritten here


      priority (3) - 1 = Highest | 2 = High | 3 = Normal | 4 = Low | 5 = Lowest

      dispositionNotification () or notification () - request a Disposition Notification


      subject ($subject) - subject of the message

      body ($textBody) - use this one alone to create and send plainText emailmessages

      bodyHTML ($htmlBody) - use this to create a Multipart Alternative Emailmessage (containing a HTML-Part and a Plaintext-Part as fallback)

      addSignature ( true | false ) - the default-behave is selectable in config screen, this can be overridden here
      (only available if a signature is defined in the config screen)

      attachment ($filename, $alternativeBasename = "") - add attachment file, optionally alternative basename


      send () - send the message(s) and return number of successful sent messages


      getResult () - returns a dump (array) with all recipients (to, cc, bcc) and settings you have selected with the message, the message subject and body, and lists of successfull addresses and failed addresses,


      logActivity ($logmessage) - you may log success if you want

      logError ($logmessage) - you may log warnings, too. - Errors are logged automaticaly
       
       
      useSentLog (true | false) - intended for usage with e.g. third party newsletter modules - tells the send() method to make usage of the sentLog-methods - the following three sentLog methods are hookable, e.g. if you don't want log into files you may provide your own storage, or add additional functionality here

      sentLogReset ()  - starts a new LogSession - Best usage would be interactively once when setting up a new Newsletter

      sentLogGet ()  - is called automaticly within the send() method - returns an array containing all previously used emailaddresses

      sentLogAdd ($emailaddress)  - is called automaticly within the send() method

      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. This module should be considered alpha until it has gone through some more testing.
      Add Template Enhancements
      Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.

      Features
      Derive template label from name: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. When one or more new templates are added in admin a label is derived automatically from the name. 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.

      Hi,
      I've put in a support request (as a followup on an existing one) for this but it's nearly 10pm Ryan's time, so I thought I'd ask on here just in case someone can help...
      Yesterday we purchased ProDrafts, but I couldn't get the key to validate. Every time I hit submit on the module settings screen the key would be removed from the field I entered it in, and then it would complain about the missing value. I put in a support request and Ryan responded last night. It turned out it was because we're behind a proxy/firewall. He gave me a fix to get around that issue - some code to go into admin.php. I put that code in and saved admin.php, but now I can't even get into our admin anymore!
      (Just to clarify, I took the code back out and saved admin.php but that made no difference. It's definitely not the new code causing the error.)
      The errors relate to a lack of permission on the ProDrafts module (see attached screenshot). We do have a key, but evidently the code Ryan gave me to add the key in via admin.php isn't taking effect before the error is thrown...?
      I tried removing the ProDrafts directory from the modules directory, but that hasn't helped.
      Is there a hook I can put in somewhere to tell it not to load ProDrafts at all, or not check the permissions? Or is there some way to manually uninstall it from the file system?
      Thanks!
