Page Field Edit Links


This module is based on--and is the successor to--Macrura's AdminPageSelectEditLinks (https://processwire.com/talk/topic/8477-adminpageselecteditlinks-module-for-enabling-edit-links-on-multipage-selects/)

Page Field Edit Links adds modal editing capability to ProcessWire's Page fields in the admin editor, allowing editors to easily view and edit the content of any page(s) that have been selected, as well as create new pages without leaving the current screen. Edit links are updated in real time when new pages are added to the field. Compatible with all available types of Inputfields including Select, SelectMultiple, Checkboxes, Radios, AsmSelect, PageListSelect, PageListSelectMultiple, and PageAutocomplete.

Tried it on 2.6 and can't find the "show edit links?" option :( looked for it at page body field edit screen in "global" and in "template specific" mode...

Hi BernhardB - The "Show edit links?" option should appear at the bottom of the "Input" tab in the global settings for the field. I'm a bit confused when you say "page body field" since the body field would be typically associated with a textarea and not a Page field.

Let me know if you are still having issues and I will look further into it.

want to say many thanks to @thetuningspoon for putting this together, and doing all the work of submitting to the directory. It's surely a useful module (use it almost every site), and we hope that all y'all will like it..

There is a small glitch with the version number that leads to a version mismatch in ModuleManager, which interprets it as 0.0.2 and 2.0 and permanently wants me to update. I am not a module coder but I think that 

 'version' => 200, 

would fix this.

Thanks for spotting that. I just needed to quote it properly, i.e. '2.0.0'

I updated the version to 2.0.1.

If anyone has trouble with this on 2.5 stable, let me know. I had some trouble with an install this morning and am looking into it.

I've a minor suggestion. It would be nice to make the link not wrap between the icon and the text.

so you mean put the

<i class='fa fa-edit'></i>

before/outside of the anchor element?

Nope I meant "wrap" as "line-wrap". On narrow fields sometimes the icon is still in the first line, while the text is already wrapped to the next one.

so maybe for single page selects, changing to a block element?

@thetuningspoon: thanks for module! very appreciated thing!

However current limitations don't give me a change to use it in production.

Do you plan to fix specifically this: "When using PageListSelect, PageListSelectMultiple, and PageAutoComplete, if there is more than one page field on a given edit page and at least one of them has the edit link feature enabled, all of the Page fields using those inputs will show the edit links."?

Also, I'd kindly ask to leave opportunity to edit locked visibility Page fields as "locked" here means that field cannot be changed, not content of its page.

Hi valan,

Have you tested the module yet to see if it will work for your needs? I'm not sure I fully understand your question, but it sounds like you want to be able to set the visibility property of a particular page field to "Open when populated and not editable (locked)" but still have the edit link show? Is that correct?

The issue with this and with the other limitation you asked about is the fact that PW doesn't always provide the necessary CSS/JS hooks to be as granular as I would like (strangely, it does for some of the inputfields but not others). Ryan may have fixed this in 2.6, but I haven't had a chance to look at it again. I would like to fix this at some point, if possible!

@thetuningspoon: yes, I've tested module. Limitations stop broad usage of such needed module in production env. May I suggest you to request Ryan needed hooks? I guess Ryan should be aware/agree and put it in "todo" list first. I'm sure all PW devs will support prioritization.) Thanks!

Somehow the module seems to not work on user pages. I've users with an alternative user template, that holds a select pagefield. But even thought the checkbox to add the link is checked, there's nothing rendering.

Just to confirm, is the page field you're working with an inputfieldSelect (drop down html select) or something else?

Currently I need to update the module to work with Ryan's new singular inputfieldAutocomplete, but it sounds like this is a different issue.

hi,

this feature would fit perfectly in a project i'm developing right now on 2.6.13 with a autocomplete pagefield. unfortunately it does not work with the new condensed format of single page selects! https://processwire.com/blog/posts/new-ajax-driven-inputs-conditional-hooks-template-family-settings-and-more/#improvements-to-the-page-autocomplete-input

on multiple selects it works as expected and it's really helpful!!

thanks for the module and i hope there's an easy fix for that :)

edit: what do you think about a link to a modal to ADD a new page to a defined parent. i know one can define "allow adding of pages" but i think there are situations where that is not really user friendly or even not possible because you have some required fields that you can't populate in one line of a pagefield. at least in my scenario (invoicing app) it would be great to have the possibility to create a new invoice, select the receipient and if it's a new client have the possibility to click on "create new" and it opens a modal where you can fill in all the necessary data.

in this scenario it would just need an additional field for storing the parent of the newly created pages. but maybe a more flexible solution would be to define the parent dynamically (like "return $page->siblings('title=clients');" or the like)

what do you think? dreaming of something like "page field enhanced" :D;)

Hi BernhardB,

I'm aware of the issue and actually have an update to support the single page autocompletes which I'm already using on one of my projects, but haven't gotten around to merging it with the Github project yet.

Believe it or not, I've also been experimenting with adding an "add new" link just like you suggested here. The biggest problem I'm having with this is figuring out how to automatically populate the field with this new page once it's published. I'll have to study how Ryan does this when creating a new field in the template editor.

i've not even thought about updating the pagefield automatically when one has added a new item, but that would definitely make sense. good luck with ryans code ;)

Ok, updates!

  • Regular asm inputfields now work dynamically without the need for a page save
  • Compatible with the new singular autocomplete fields
  • Links are now fully configurable on a field-by-field basis
  • Implemented preliminary "Add New" functionality to enable adding pages via modal window right from the field
  • Changed "Edit" link labels to "View" (just my preference... but maybe this could be made configurable down the road)
  • Code cleanup and optimization

Note that after you upgrade you may have to re-set your page fields (just the edit link checkbox, not the whole field).

      This is a new module that provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Beta release
      Note that I consider this a Beta release. Since the module is relatively aggressive in deleting some caches, I would advise you to install in on a test environment before using it on a live site.
      Let me know if you're getting any errors, have trouble using the module or if you have suggestions for improvement!
      In particular, can someone let me know if this module causes any problems with the ProCache module? I don't own or use it, so I can't check. As far as I can tell, ProCache uses a folder inside the cache directory to cache static pages, so my module should be able to clear the ProCache site cache as well, I'd appreciate it if someone can test that for me.
      Future plans
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      This module is (yet another) way for implementing a cookie management solution.
      Of course there are several other possibilities:
      - https://processwire.com/talk/topic/22920-klaro-cookie-consent-manager/
      - https://github.com/webmanufaktur/CookieManagementBanner
      - https://github.com/johannesdachsel/cookiemonster
      - https://www.oiljs.org/
      - ... and so on ...
      In this module you can configure which kind of cookie categories you want to manage:

      You can also enable the support for respecting the Do-Not-Track (DNT) header to don't annoy users, who already decided for all their browsing experience.
      Currently there are four possible cookie groups:
      - Necessary (always enabled)
      - Statistics
      - Marketing
      - External Media
      All groups can be renamed, so feel free to use other cookie group names. I just haven't found a way to implement a "repeater like" field as configurable module field ...
      When you want to load specific scripts ( like Google Analytics, Google Maps, ...) only after the user's content to this specific category of cookies, just use the following script syntax:
      <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="statistics" data-src="/path/to/your/statistic/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing" data-src="/path/to/your/mareketing/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="external_media" data-src="/path/to/your/external-media/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing">console.log("Inline scripts are also working!");</script> The type has to be "optin" to get recognized by PrivacyWire, the data-attributes are giving hints, how the script shall be loaded, if the data-category is within the cookie consents of the user. These scripts are loaded asynchronously after the user made the decision.
      If you want to give the users the possibility to change their consent, you can use the following Textformatter:
      [[privacywire-choose-cookies]] It's planned to add also other Textformatters to opt-out of specific cookie groups or delete the whole consent cookie.
      You can also add a custom link to output the banner again with a link / button with following class:
      <a href="#" class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</a> <button class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</button> This module is still in development, but we already use it on several production websites.
      You find it here: https://github.com/blaueQuelle/privacywire/tree/master
      Download: https://github.com/blaueQuelle/privacywire/archive/master.zip
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂

      Admin Page Tree Multiple Sorting
      ClassName: ProcessPageListMultipleSorting
      Extend the ordinary sort of children of a template in the admin page tree with multiple properties. For each template, you can define your own rule. Write each template (template-name) in a row, followed by a colon and then the additional field names for sorting.
      Example: All children of the template "blog" to be sorted in descending order according to the date of creation, then descending by modification date, and then by title. Type:
      blog: -created, -modified, title  Installation
      Copy the files for this module to /site/modules/ProcessPageListMultipleSorting/ In admin: Modules > Check for new modules. Install Module "Admin Page Tree Multible Sorting". Alternative in ProcessWire 2.4+
      Login to ProcessWire backend and go to Modules Click tab "New" and enter Module Class Name: "ProcessPageListMultipleSorting" Click "Download and Install"   Compatibility   I have currently tested the module only under PW 2.6+, but think that it works on older versions too. Maybe someone can give a feedback.     Download   PW-Repo: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-page-list-multiple-sorting/ GitHub: https://github.com/FlipZoomMedia/Processwire-ProcessPageListMultipleSorting     I hope someone can use the module. Have fun and best regards, David
