Example InptfieldPageTable hook module to remove "Add New" button on a condition
* Example Hooks to hack InputfieldPageTable to not render add buttons on a condition
* This will remove "add new" buttons if there's more than 2 entries
* - First addHookBefore InputfieldPageTable::render to count the value (table rows)
* - If value is greater than 1, we hadd another hook to InputfieldButton::render (used by page table for the buttons)
* and overwrite it with an empty string.
* - Add another hook after page table render to remove the button hooks, to not remove any other buttons rendered
* after this page table

* ProcessWire calls this when the module is loaded. For 'autoload' modules, this will be called
