Textarea Markup inputfield for ProcessWire CMS/CMF

Intended for outputting markup as help or commentary among other inputfields, mainly in Page Edit context. Loosely based on InputfieldMarkup from core, but extends textarea to allow overriding markup on a per page basis by superuser.

Getting started

Copy (or clone with git) InputfieldTextareaMarkup folder to /site/modules/, go to Admin > Modules, hit "Check for new modules" and install Textarea Markup.

After installing the module create new "Textarea" field and configure it to use TextareaMarkup as it's inputfield. Via "Input" tab in field settings you can set default output for the field and optionally hide field label entirely.

Fied output can be configured on a per-page basis by superusers, otherwise default value from field settings is used. Output can contain text, HTML markup and values from other fields.

To output values of other fields, embed names of those fields in your output string using format {{field_name}}. Example:

Hello world, I'm a {{template}}, my name is {{name}} and my ID is {{id}}!

For basic-page with ID 1001 and name "About" this should output following:

Hello world, I'm a basic-page, my name is About and my ID is 1001!

In addition to field names, this module supports following custom tags:

  • {{strtotime:+2 weeks|j.n.Y}}: pass given string (in this example +2 weeks) to strtotime() function, and if an optional format string is provided (in this example j.n.Y), format the resulting timestamp according to it with date().
