How to install or uninstall modules
Automatically fills fields of new pages with corresponding values of their parents.
Either install it manually:
- by moving the folder to your /site/modules directory
- going to the module-page in the processwire admin interface
- hitting the refresh button (the module will appear on top of the page)
- then clicking the install button next to it and follow further instructions
or automatically by one of the options listed here: http://modules.processwire.com/install-uninstall/
In the configuration of this module you have to set templates which are able to give field values and fields which are able to receive values. Then, this module automatically applies field values to every newly added page from their parents according to those settings.
Additionally you may switch between the immediate parent or the closest parent which has the wanted field. ... Might be usefull, but I am not sure ...
Namespace is commented out for now, since I use this module in a 2.7 installation. Feel free to uncomment the namespace declaration.
