How to install or uninstall modules



ProcessWire module for using PW variables and Hanna codes in Description and Note fields.

Specifiy fields/properties of the page, eg: [page.parent.url] [page.title] [page.template.label]

You can also define a str_replace to be performed on the returned value, eg: [page.name.(-|_)] which will return the page name with the dashes replaced with underscores

You can also use hanna codes within your description and notes fields - big thanks to @Robin S for this idea
