Page Status Toggler


Recommended Posts

New Module which adds 1 more, but very tiny green buttons to the page list. It saves minimum 3 klicks :) to change page status from hidden to visible.

Edit: update 11.12.14
Module provides up to 3 (more) buttons in page list to toggle status (hidden/visible, published/unpublished  and locked/unlocked).

Enable/Disable the buttons in the settings (screenshot)

Looks very handy - thanks!

A few minor comments:

  • I don't see why it requires LazyCron
  • I think you have the messages reversed - it says "Changed page status to 'hidden'" when it should say "visible"
  • It would be nice if the message told you what page had its status changed
  • I'd love to see this work via ajax, rather than a page refresh, or at a minimum, it would be great if the EDIT / VIEW etc links were turned on for that page after the reload
  • I am not sure whether the obscurity of the tick/cross is really worth the reduced space usage - I would rather see hidden/visible, but maybe that's just me.

Thanks again!

Sorry - I figured the lazycron was a typo - I should have phrased my comment as such :)

I have another thought for you which I think is important. You are setting the status directly as statusHidden and StatusOn, but really you should be using addStatus and removeStatus to add/remove Page::statusHidden

Otherwise you will override unpublished, locked etc.

I'd say we don't. Maybe @kixie can collaborate with @geniestreiche to enhance the existing module(s)? Whilst I wouldn't want to discourage the enthusiasm of budding module developers, I'd say this is something we need to carefully consider and strike a good balance about. There's enough lessons from our neighbours Drumlapress about this :-). Just saying..

no we don't.

@Martijn Geerts
Its already done. I updated it and included lock/unlock button too.

When I started with the module I didn't know about the one from geniestreiche. I startet on the base of Nicos ProcessPageDelete.module.
I will not put it in the modules directory. I am open to merge the results with geniestreiche.
Sent him a message. :rolleyes:

Btw, both yours and the ones I linked to are not really Process Modules :-)

Thats a question of philosophie. :)

  • This module creates a page with a process field (which calls the module).
  • This module hooks in ProcessPageListRender
  • Changing the page status is a process

In a way you are right: this module is not a process itself, but it executes one.

Any suggestions for a better name? Something like HookProcessPageStatusToggler.module? I am often thinking about a straight naming syntax for modules. I have no idea ...

No it is not in the modules directory.
Read here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/8508-page-status-toggler/?p=82345

By the way there exists a built-in functionality, which makes my and the modules of geniestreiche obsolete.


if you still want to use it you can download it by clicking the link in the first post. It should work with the newest PW releases.

it is already activated under the following conditions:

  • not available for 'home' ($page->id == 1)
  • not available for 'admin' ($page->template == 'admin')
  • page editable status is needed
  • to show lock/unlock current user needs page-lock permission
  • trash/restore button only available for superuser
  • functionality disabled in demo mode

If you like to have a deeper view have a look in the script: /wire/modules/Process/ProcessPageList/ProcessPageListActions.php

      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.

      File Manager for ProcessWire is a module to manager files and folders from the CMS backend. It supports creating, deleting, renaming, packing, unpacking, uploading, downloading and editing of files and folders. The integrated code editor ACE supports highlighting of all common programming languages.

      This module is probably the most powerful module. You might destroy your processwire installation if you don't exactly know what you doing. Be careful and use it at your own risk!
      ACE code editor
      This module uses ACE code editor available from: https://github.com/ajaxorg/ace

      This module uses the JavaScript dragscroll available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability to drag the table horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      PHP File Manager
      This module uses a modified version of PHP File Manager available from: https://github.com/alexantr/filemanager

      This module implements the website live chat service from tawk.to. Actually the module doesn't have to do much. It just need to inserted a few lines of JavaScript just before the closing body tag </body> on each side. However, the module offers additional options to display the widget only on certain pages.
      Create an account
      Visit https://www.tawk.to and create an account. It's free! At some point you will reach a page where you can copy the required JavaScript-code.

      Open the module settings and paste the JavaScript-code into the field as shown below. Click "Submit" and that's all.

      Open the module settings
      The settings for this module are located int the menu Modules=>Configure=>LiveChatTawkTo.

      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.
      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.
      The easy-sort mode is only possible on Repeater/Matrix fields that do not use the "item depth" option.
