Simple Media Library module for ProcessWire

MediaLibrary

Simple Media Library Module for the ProcessWire CMS

Status


Beta, very close to stable

Compatibility


This module is compatible with ProcessWire 3.0

Description


This module adds a MediaLibrary template with MediaImages and MediaFiles fields to ProcessWire.

Extends CKEditor's link and image pickers to allow quick selection of library pages. Only libraries under the edited page itself or one of its parents are available to keep things organized.

Screen capture

An overview of all configured libraries is available in the "Media" entry in the backend:

Permissions


This module installs the permission "media-library" which enables access to the media libraries overpage page ("Media" menu item) in the backend to non-superusers. Many thanks to inspeCTor for the idea.

“We were really happy to build our new portfolio website on ProcessWire! We wanted something that gave us plenty of control on the back-end, without any bloat on the front end - just a nice, easy to access API for all our content that left us free to design and build however we liked.” —Castus, web design agency in Sheffield, UK
