Page Protector

Recommended Posts

Hi @tpr - I'll have to have a think about the password only option at the month when I will have a little time. There are some other options I would also like to add, so might be time for a bit of a revamp.

Yes, SLT will always get involved because this module uses the regular PW login process. Not sure a way around that (or whether you should really want a way around it) without changing how access is granted.

Sure, I can add workarounds, just wanted to share these, thanks.

I get an 500 error after the third failed login attempt

@adrian, maybe the module needs a try/catch to show the login throttle message rather than the 500 error?

Oh right - sorry I missed your note about the 500 error - too busy to really read properly :)

A feature request for the future: allow login only with a password.

+1 :) For example it is good for pages containing not too sensitive data, such as work in progress – soon to be made public – pages some people need access to, etc...

Feature request

Can there be an option to redirect the user to another page if they land on a protected page (rather than showing them the login form)?  Additionally, if there could be a field by which an admin can enter a custom message (or error) to $session->message("the message"); or $session->error("the message"); that would be really great.

Hi Jonathan,

Would this just be for users that are already logged in, but are prohibited by the Allowed Roles setting, or do you actually want guest users to be redirected when they visit a protected page? Of course this would mean that an authorized user would need to make their own way to a login page. Or are you planning on redirecting them to a custom login page? Then of course you'd want to redirect them back to the page they first visited.

Does the Login Template option work for your needs by chance?

It would be helpful to understand your use case a little better and why the existing Message or Prohibited Message fields don't suit your needs.

I am happy to help accommodate what you want, but a little context would help please 🙂

I was having some issues logging into a site with PageProtector turned on using Chrome on Android. My users would hit login and either nothing would happen. occasionally, a 500 error would be displayed.

In the end, I transpired that a setting called 'Data Saver' was enabled. Once you disable this, my logins worked.

Alternatively, you can run your site over HTTPS to bypass this. I've yet to try it but if you're logging into sites etc then HTTPs should be the default anyway 🙂

Hey Peter,

I think this isn't specifically an issue with this module but rather PW core login security settings. I just some googling on the Data Saver setting - I think the problem is that it affects the IP address of the user. I  think perhaps if you disable PW's session fingerprinting the problem will also be solved.

Hi,

the next weeks I have to build a website with some protected pages, accessible with a password in the frontend.
Now I discovered this module and I'm going to use it, thanks for this 🙂

I couldn't find informations about a logout button. Is there also a logout function, for visitors who are logged in? Or must I build my own one?

Ok, thanx.

Do you think, that this »tutorial« would work with your module? https://processwire.com/talk/topic/1716-integrating-a-member-visitor-login-form/?tab=comments#comment-15919

At 5. are the interesting informations:

Quote

5. Just to be complete, make a logout.php template and create a page called /logout/ that uses it.

/site/templates/logout.php

 This get lost from Ryans the quote: 

if($user->isLoggedin()) $session->logout();
$session->redirect('/');

@neophron - that tutorial is more than you need if you use this module, but it will give you ultimate flexibility - it really depends on your needs.

If you use this module and just want a logout button you do have to have that button link to a url that performs a $session->logout() and redirect to where you want them to end up. It think in that example there is a logout page added to the admin and the template for that page does the logout and redirect. That should be all you need.

Is there a way to protect new pages by default?

New child pages of a protected parent will be protected by default if you have the protect child pages option checked.

hmm, don't think that would work as the parent isn't protected. I have all the children protected using their template but want to make one of two viewable/unprotected.

Sounds like what you are looking for doesn't really fit with this way this module is designed to work. You might be better off with https://github.com/matjazpotocnik/DynamicRoles although I do find the approach used in that module a bit weird and maybe not very efficient with a lot of pages.

Thanks a lot. I'll probably look at that plugin and page protector and see if i can figure out how they work.

      Happy new year, everybody 🥬
      I've been sitting on this Dashboard module I made for a client and finally came around to cleaning it up and releasing it to the wider public. This is how it looks.
      ProcessWire Dashboard

      If anyone is interested in trying this out, please go ahead! I'd love to get some feedback on it. If this proves useful and survives some real-world testing, I'll add this to the module directory.
      Download
      You can find the latest release on Github.
      Documentation
      Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options.
      Custom Panels
      My goal was to make it really simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people.
       Disclaimer
      This is a pre-release version. Please treat it as such — don't install it on production sites. Just making sure 🍇
      Roadmap
      These are the things I'm looking to implement myself at some point. The wishlist is a lot longer, but those are the 80/20 items that I probably won't regret spending time on.
      Improve documentation & add examples ⚙️ Panel types Google Analytics ⚙️ Add new page  🔥 Drafts 🔥 At a glance / Page counter 404s  Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel panel groups with heading and spacing between ✅ panel wrappers as grid item (e.g. stacked notices) ✅ Admin themes support AdminThemeReno and AdminThemeDefault ✅ Shortcuts panel add a table layout with icon, title & summary ✅ Chart panel add default styles for common chart types ✅ load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array) Collection panel support image columns ✅ add buttons: view all & add new ✅

      ---- 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 (open spoiler):
      (Please note: these screenshots are from an early development state of SnipWire. To see actual screens please have a look at later posts below!)

      This module is inspired by and similar to the Template Stubs module. The author of that module has not been active in the PW community for several years now and parts of the code for that module didn't make sense to me, so I decided to create my own module. Auto Template Stubs has only been tested with PhpStorm because that is the IDE that I use.
      Auto Template Stubs
      Automatically creates stub files for templates when fields or fieldgroups are saved.
      Stub files are useful if you are using an IDE (e.g. PhpStorm) that provides code assistance - the stub files let the IDE know what fields exist in each template and what data type each field returns. Depending on your IDE's features you get benefits such as code completion for field names as you type, type inference, inspection, documentation, etc.
      Installation
      Install the Auto Template Stubs module.
      Configuration
      You can change the class name prefix setting in the module config if you like. It's good to use a class name prefix because it reduces the chance that the class name will clash with an existing class name.
      The directory path used to store the stub files is configurable.
      There is a checkbox to manually trigger the regeneration of all stub files if needed.
      Usage
      Add a line near the top of each of your template files to tell your IDE what stub class name to associate with the $page variable within the template file. For example, with the default class name prefix you would add the following line at the top of the home.php template file:
      /** @var tpl_home $page */ Now enjoy code completion, etc, in your IDE.

      Adding data types for non-core Fieldtype modules
      The module includes the data types returned by all the core Fieldtype modules. If you want to add data types returned by one or more non-core Fieldtype modules then you can hook the AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes() method. For example, in /site/ready.php:
      // Add data types for some non-core Fieldtype modules $wire->addHookAfter('AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes', function(HookEvent $event) { $extra_types = [ 'FieldtypeDecimal' => 'string', 'FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker' => 'LeafletMapMarker', 'FieldtypeRepeaterMatrix' => 'RepeaterMatrixPageArray', 'FieldtypeTable' => 'TableRows', ]; $event->return = $event->return + $extra_types; }); Credits
      Inspired by and much credit to the Template Stubs module by mindplay.dk.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.60
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      ⚠️ NOTICE: 1.5.60 is an important security patch-release for an XSS vulnerability discovered by @phlp. It's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that all Jumplinks users update to the latest version as soon as possible.
      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! 🙂
