Build Status

Replaces the Widget Editor to enable support for advanced form fields such as SilverStripe\AssetAdmin\Forms\UploadField

Requirements

Installation

composer require undefinedoffset/silverstripe-advancedwidgeteditor

Usage

To use advanced widget editor over the default SilverStripe widgets editor you need to change your extension from WidgetPageExtension to use AdvancedWidgetPageExtension instead.

Page:
  extensions:
    - 'UndefinedOffset\AdvancedWidgetEditor\Extensions\AdvancedWidgetPageExtension'

Controlling Available Widgets per-class

To control widgets on a per-class host class (class which the Advanced Widget Editor is controlling the widget area for), you can use the config property available_widgets for example:

Page:
    available_widgets:
        - "RSSWidget"
        - "MyExampleWidget"

SilverStripe\Blog\Model\Blog:
    available_widgets:
        - 'SilverStripe\Blog\Widgets\BlogArchiveWidget'
        - 'SilverStripe\Blog\Widgets\BlogCategoriesWidget'
        - 'SilverStripe\Blog\Widgets\BlogTagsCloudWidget'
        - 'SilverStripe\Blog\Widgets\BlogRecentPostsWidget'

In the case of the above example the Page class and it's decedent classes will have the RSSWidget and MyExampleWidget available. Where the SilverStripe\Blog\Model\Blog class and it's decendent classes will also have ArchiveWidget, BlogManagementWidget, etc along side the RSSWidget and MyExampleWidget.

You can also restrict widgets from decedent classes using the example above say we want to restrict the SilverStripe\Blog\Model\Blog class to not have access to the RSSWidget but still have Page be allowed to use that widget, for example you can use the bellow:

SilverStripe\Blog\Model\Blog:
    restricted_widgets:
        - "RSSWidget"
