Create a page edit form on frontend using PW API and fields from the template of the page
// get a page
$editpage = $pages->get("/editme/");
$ignorefields = array("isOld","language_published");
$form = $modules->get("InputfieldForm");
$form->method = 'post';
$form->action = './';
// get the collection of inputs that can populate this page's fields
$inputfields = $editpage->getInputfields();
// make all the fields required and add them to the form
foreach($inputfields as $inputfield) {
if(in_array($inputfield->name, $ignorefields)) continue;
// the inputfields don't already have a submit button, so we'll add one.
$submit = $modules->get("InputfieldSubmit");
$submit->name = "submit";
$submit->value = 'Submit';
// add the submit button the the form
$out = '';
// process the form
if($this->input->post->submit) {
// now we assume the form has been submitted.
// tell the form to process input frmo the post vars.
// see if any errors occurred
if( count( $form->getErrors() )) {
// re-render the form, it will include the error messages
$out .= $form->render();
} else {
// successful form submission, so populate the page with the new values.
foreach($form as $field) {
$editpage->set($field->name, $field->value);
// save it
$out .= "Page saved.";
$out .= $form->render();
} else {
$out .= $form->render();
include(""); // where scripts are added needed by the form
echo $out;
$jsConfig = $config->js();
$jsConfig['urls'] = array(
'root' => $config->urls->root,
'admin' => $config->urls->admin,
'modules' => $config->urls->modules,
'core' => $config->urls->core,
'files' => $config->urls->files,

$config->styles->prepend($config->urls->adminTemplates . "styles/main.css?v=2");
$config->styles->append($config->urls->adminTemplates . "styles/inputfields.css");
$config->styles->append($config->urls->adminTemplates . "styles/ui.css?v=2");

Weird mix of js + php in head.php. Can you do that?

Shorthand <? instead of <?php can cause problems.

@modifiedcontent ye you can it's nothing weird. The shorthand wasn't intentional (edited).
