what errors are you getting in the JS console? I don't have time to look into it but that was what made it work for me. Probably not initialising the jQuery stuff in the right place...

It's because the events are being triggered too early, before the Color Picker's HTML is even added to the DOM, and also the event was missing for the standard repeater (which I've added). This version of InputfieldColorPicker.js is working now. I can't confirm it works for the repeater matrix, but if the class names used in the JS code above are correct, it should just work. I also added safeguards so that multiple events are not applied to the same elements.

        $(this).closest('.ui-widget-content, .InputfieldContent').find('div[id^=ColorPicker_]').ColorPickerSetColor($(this).data('color').toString());
        $(this).closest('.ui-widget-content, .InputfieldContent').find('div[id^=ColorPicker_]')
            .css('backgroundColor', color)
            .css('background-image', 'none')
            .attr('data-color', $(this).data('color').toString());

            var modurl = $(this).closest('.ui-widget-content, .InputfieldContent').find('.ColorPickerReset').data('modurl');

                .css('background-image', 'url(' + modurl + 'transparent.gif)');

     * Looks like its due to events being fired too early.

    function delayedInit(event) {
        setTimeout(initColorPicker, 500);
        setTimeout(initColorPicker, 1000);

    $(document).on('opened', '.InputfieldRepeaterItem', delayedInit);
    $(document).on('repeateradd', '.InputfieldRepeater  .InputfieldRepeaterAddLink', delayedInit);
    $(document).on('repeateradd', '.InputfieldRepeaterMatrix .InputfieldRepeaterMatrixAddLink', delayedInit);


Hope that helps.

Hi Guys,

is the ColorPicker Fieldtype not working inside a repeater a known issue?

I have pretty much this setup, apart from that everything is very vanilla. Field works fine embedded inside a template, however wrapped in a repeater it's not usable inside the backend. Didn't find this issue documented anywhere. 

In this case I'm switching to predefined color schemes (via select menues) so it's not a huge deal atm, so I'm just curious.

Obviously haven't looked into the code at all, gut feeling is this is somehow a jquery selector issue...

Thanks all for the reports and being patient. I have managed to get back to this and fix issues within Repeater and RepeaterMatrix. Also added ___markupValue() for formatted output ie in Lister.

There's a couple of display issues with this on the new UIkit theme. I managed to fix this by adding a css file to $config->styles (in admin.php) with the following:

.InputfieldColorPicker ul {
	margin: 0;
	padding: 0;

.InputfieldColorPicker ul li {
	list-style: none;

Is there a colorpicker that allows you to pick from anywhere on your page? Is such a thing even possible?

just an example:

  background-color: <?=$page->backColor?>;

May someone could help me.

In the pw backend I have the following hierarchy:







maincolor1, maincolor2, maincolor3 should only set 3 different colors for just a simple <h1>heading</h1> customized with css. My only problem is to use the right selectors in the right way so that the work probably with the module. The datepicker module itself is in the backend installed and works.

At last I am not sure if the following snippet is needed at all or only when I use an external css-stylesheet and I have not sure where I should place it:

The snippet 

<?php header("Content-type: text/css"); ?>

May someone could tell me where to put everything in the right place so that I can set the color of my three headings by the colorpicker module.

@Soma Could you may help me with your module? I created a field color1 for all my headlines (h1-h6) setting its default color to #550000. The output in the frontend shows nicely the default color I have set. If I set any other default color everything still works fine.

The problem is: If I pick with the color-picker another color (does not matter which color) just nothing happens. It still shows the default color which is set. Are there maybe any special extra settings to allow the overwrite of the default color?

@Soma Just wanna let you know that no help needed anymore because it probably was a wrong right management between admin role and another custom role I have. Everything seems to work fine.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.56
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      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
      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! :)

      As threatened in Ryan's announcement for 3.0.139, I built a little module for sliding toggles as a replacement for checkboxes. Styling of the input is CSS3 only (with all the usual caveats about older browsers), no JS necessary, and may still be a bit "rough around the edges", so to speak, since I didn't have much time for testing on different devices or brushing things up enough so I'd feel comfortable pushing it to the module directory. But here's the link to the GitHub repo for now:
      Fieldtype and Inputfield that implements smartphone-style toggles as replacement for checkbox inputs. The visualization is CSS-only, no additional JS necessary.
      Still very alpha, use with caution!
      Features / Field Settings
      You can render the toggles in four different sizes: small, medium, large and extra large.
      Off Color
      Currently, "unchecked" toggles can be displayed either in grey (default) or red.
      On Color
      "Checked" toggles can be rendered in one of these colors: blue (default), black, green, grey, orange or red.

      Some examples with checkbox label

      Hi Guys
      I needed to add extended functionalities for the InputfieldDatetime Module (module is from processwire version 2.7.3) because of a Request of Customer.
      So I duplicated the module and placed it under /site/modules/.
      I have added 3 new Settings to the InputfieldDatetime Module.
      1. Day Restriction - Restrict different days based on weekdays selection (e.g. saturday, sunday) - WORKING

      2. Time Slots - Define Time slots based on custom Integer Value (max is 60 for 1 hour) - WORKING

      3. Time Range Rules per Weekday - Define a minTime and MaxTime per Weekday (e.g. Opening Hours of a Restaurant) - NOT WORKING PROPERLY

      The Problem
      Time Slots and Day Restriction working fine so far. But the Time Range Rules per Weekday doesn't work right.
      What should happen is, that when you click on a date, it should update the minTime and maxTime of the Time Select.
      But the change on the select only happens if you select a date 2 times or when you select a date 1 time and then close the datepicker and reopen it again.
      The time select doesn't get change when you select a date 1 time and don't close the picker.
      Here is the whole extended InputfieldDatetime Module.
      The Files that I have changed:
      InputfieldDatetime.module InputfieldDatetime.js jquery-ui-timepicker-addon.js (https://trentrichardson.com/examples/timepicker/) - updated it to the newest version, because minTime and maxTime Option was only available in the new version  
      Thats the Part of the JS that is not working correctly:
      if(datetimerules && datetimerules.length){ options.onSelect = function(date, inst) { var day = $(this).datetimepicker("getDate").getDay(); day = day.toString(); var mintime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-mintime'); var maxtime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-maxtime'); console.log("weekday: "+day); console.log("minTime: "+mintime); console.log("maxTime: "+maxtime); var optionsAll = $(this).datetimepicker( "option", "all" ); optionsAll.minTime = mintime; optionsAll.maxTime = maxtime; $(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); $(this).datetimepicker(optionsAll); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); //$.datepicker._selectDate($(this).attr("id"),date); //$.datepicker._base_getDateDatepicker(); // var inst = $.datepicker._getInst($(this)); // $.datepicker._updateDatepicker(inst); /*$(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); InputfieldDatetimeDatepicker($(this), mintime, maxtime); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); */ // $(this).datetimepicker('option', {minTime: mintime, maxTime: maxtime}); } } Can you have a look and find out what the Problem is?
      Kind Regards

      This module tracks changes, additions, removals etc. of public (as in "not under admin") pages of your site. Like it's name says, it doesn't attempt to be a version control system or anything like that - just a log of what's happened.
      At the moment it's still a work in progress and will most likely be a victim of many ruthless this-won't-work-let's-try-that-instead cycles, but I believe I've nailed basic functionality well enough to post it here.. so, once again, I'll be happy to hear any comments you folks can provide
      How does it work?
      Exactly like it's (sort of) predecessor, Process Changelog actually consists of two modules: Process Changelog and Process Changelog Hooks. Hooks module exists only to serve main module by hooking into various functions within Pages class, collecting data of performed operations, refining it and keeping up a log of events in it's own custom database table (process_changelog.) Visible part is managed by Process Changelog, which provides users a (relatively) pretty view of the contents of said log table.
      How do you use it?
      When installed this module adds new page called Changelog under Admin > Setup which provides you with a table view of collected data and basic filtering tools See attached screenshots to get a general idea about what that page should look like after a while.
      For detailed installation instructions etc. see README.md.

      Status update links (inside this thread) for SnipWire development will be always posted here:
      If you are interested, you can test the current state of development:
      Please note that the software is not yet intended for use in a production system (alpha version).
      If you like, you can also submit feature requests and suggestions for improvement. I also accept pull requests.
      ---- 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)
