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.

@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?

Sorry you must build your own.

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.

I just did an update from 2.05 to 2.06. When finished, I checked module config, which told me I currently have no protected pages at all. Truth is, however, there is actually 1 protected page. Also, this page (protection) still worked after the update.

I checked on another site where I have multiple protected resources. On this site - after updating - module config showed me all protected pages, however the numeric count in the headline was given wrongly.

Could there be a regression in determining the count of protected pages?

I use PW >/= 3.0.123 on both sites.

Hi @maddmac - no, there isn't a lost password option. I'm not sure what it would take to implement the PW core version into this. I am super busy with client work for the next month so can't really tackle this at the moment I'm afraid. If you feel like having a go, I am happy for PRs 🙂

I was wondering if it's possible to have a 'protected' and a 'non protected' version of a page. Now I'm using this code:

	if($user->isLoggedin()) {	
// SHOP FOR ADMIN	
  echo "{$materialsimage} &nbsp;&nbsp;<a href='{$p->url}'><span class='verdana_14'><b>{$p->title}</b></a>  -  <span class='verdana_14'>{$p->pad_price} &euro;</span>.</span><br>";
  echo $modules->get("PadRender")->addToCart($p, $askQty = true, $page); 
// $p is the product, we do ask quantity, we redirect back to current page
  echo "<hr>";  
}
else {
// SHOP FOR STUDENTS
  echo "{$materialsimage} &nbsp;&nbsp;<a href='{$p->url}'><span class='verdana_14'><b>{$p->title}</b></a>  -  <span class='verdana_14'>{$p->pad_price} &euro;</span>.</span><br>";
  echo "<hr>";
}

I want to change that into sections SHOP FOR STUDENTS and SHOP FOR VISITORS, where visitors can view what we sell but only students (logged in with PageProtector) can actually buy things. Is it possible in the Page Protector $options? Or what should go into the if() else() part to make in work?

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.

      Session Viewer is a module for ProcessWire to list session files and display session data. This module is helpful to display the session data of a specific session or to kick out a logged in user by simply delete his session file. After installation the module is available in the Setup menu.

      The following conditions must be met for the module to work properly:
      Session files
      Session data must be stored in session files, which is the default way in ProcessWire. Sessions stored in the database are not supported by this module. The path to the directory where the session files are stored must be declared in the ProcessWire configuration which is by default: site/assets/sessions.
      Serialize handler
      In order to transform session data easier back to a PHP array, the session data is stored serialized. PHP offers a way to declare a custom serialize handler. This module supports only the default serialize handlers: php, php_binary and php_serialize. WDDX was dropped in PHP 7.4.0 and is therefore not supported by this module as well as any other custom serialize handler. Which serialize handler is actually used you can find out in the module configuration which is available under Modules=>Configure=>SessionViewer.

      Session data
      The session data can be displayed in two different ways. PHP's default output for arrays print_r() or by default for this module nice_r() offered on github: https://github.com/uuf6429/nice_r. There is a setting in the module configuration if someone prefers print_r(). Apart from the better handling and overview of the folded session data the output of nice_r() looks indeed nicer.

      Repeater Easy Sort
      Adds a compact "easy-sort" mode to Repeater and Repeater Matrix, making those fields easier to sort when there are a large number of items.
      The module also enhances Repeater Matrix by allowing a colour to be set for each matrix type. This colour is used in the item headers and in the "add new" links, to help visually distinguish different matrix types in the inputfield.
      Screencasts
      A Repeater field

      A Repeater Matrix field with custom header colours

      Easy-sort mode
      Each Repeater/Matrix item gets an double-arrow icon in the item header. Click this icon to enter easy-sort mode.
      While in easy-sort mode:
      The items will reduce in width so that more items can be shown on the screen at once. The minimum width is configurable in the field settings. Any items that were in an open state are collapsed, but when you exit easy-sort mode the previously open items will be reopened. You can drag an item left/right/up/down to sort it within the items. The item that you clicked the icon for is shown with a black background. This makes it easier to find the item you want to move in easy-sort mode. You can click an item header to open the item. An "Exit easy-sort mode" button appears at the bottom of the inputfield. Configuration
      In the field settings for Repeater and Repeater Matrix fields you can define a minimum width in pixels for items in easy-sort mode. While in easy-sort mode the items will be sized to neatly fill the available width on any screen size but will never be narrower than the width you set here.
      In the field settings for Repeater Matrix you can define a custom header colour for each matrix type using an HTML "color" type input. The default colour for this type of input is black, so when black is selected in the input it means that no custom colour will be applied to the header.
      Exclusions
      The easy-sort mode is only possible on Repeater/Matrix fields that do not use the "item depth" option.
