  1. @froot sorry I didn't see your posts. If i understand correctly the admin pages use the admin template which is not a configurable template. You could create a settings page under the admin using the ProcessPageEdit process and then using a hook you can get that admin page to use a page in the tree, like "/settings/"; this was an old trick we used to do all the time and suggested by @Jonathan Lahijani. In terms of the general workflow for the settings factory, i just don't attempt to use images on those settings pages, but what I do is use a centralized media library to store site assets such as a logo. The logo is also tagged as such, and is additionally easily findable by the site managers and they can replace it on their own if they need to; this allows me to use all of the features of the regular page editor and images field and not have to hack it for use in Settings Factory. In SF you could create a page select that would allow selection of that media item.
  2. Sure, well I don't know if/when I'll be able to use your version as I have mountains of infrastructure running on setups that I'm hesitant to change (if it ain't broke don't fix it), but probably on the next iteration of the main profile I use, I can see how the existing field could be replaced, and whether it will be a "drop in" replacement, or require some front end code adjustments...
  3. Thanks for this – I've been using FieldtypeForms for years, which was just a gist https://gist.github.com/craigrodway/7515600 there may be another one here: but much appreciated that you have made an official module for this, I use the form select module to allow site editors to select a form to show in a configurable page builder section.
  4. I don't think there is a native download feature in soundmanager, and nothing in this module that I'm aware of; I used plyr (https://plyr.io/) recently to have downloadable audio: https://sfcmp.org/media/artist-chats/ There may be a way to modify the output of the bar ui player though and add a download button. But more recent audio players like plyr are working well for me, and you could implement it using a simple hanna code.
  5. @gornycreative sure - thanks! Basically i'm only using YT Pro for the styling, and for modeling the basis of certain types of content/markup. Using the local install of WordPress+YTPro I could setup the preferences for the look and feel of the site, choose the theme, etc. I can sync the YTPro generated CSS file, JS and fonts across to the theme folder in my PW folder. I have a MarkupThemeEngine module that handles frontend theme stuff. It has an api that simplifies handling of display assets (CSS/JS). A fair amount of the markup is custom coded, textbook UIKit - but that markup inherits the styling of the YTPro generated CSS file. The reason i can't use WordPress is that it ends up being too much work for the users, and it doesn't meet our requirements for a lot of content types. Many things that need plugins in WP can be easily created in PW with some small effort. The template files are designed to make decisions and do all of the heavy lifting, creating intelligent processes that assist the users to get things done fast. The backend config for any given page is mostly text, images and preferences – nobody has to actually design or configure anything in the admin. Fairly complex pages with multiple sections, images, audio, and video can be setup and done in a matter of minutes. (If i needed to create a more complex layout, I might go and do it in my WordPress install and then analyze the output code and turn that into an algorithmic setup in PW). There are not that many templates - Basic Page and a Page Builder, plus the custom ones for Albums, Events and Players. The Page Builder template uses a PageTable - each section of any Page Builder page is stacked "sections"; to add a section is just an entry in the PageTable; and then you select the "Section Type". At that point there may be a couple of things to populate - image, text, and some preferences. There is a centralized Media Library, and a Media Select field that uses InputfieldSelectize to choose any item in the media library.
  6. Hi @bernhard, thanks for this! it should be fixed now...
  7. @bernhard thank you – do you mean on the repertoire list - the use of the Tabulator?
  8. it's like a hotrod type of setup... i have a YT dev subscription, and a sort of process to be able to use the files in my PW front end, and have the wordpress install on local to work with the settings and sometimes do some designs...
  9. Happy to announce the launch of the completely rebuilt San Francisco Contemporary Music Players website, using ProcessWire. https://sfcmp.org/ The previous website was a hornet's nest of disorganized content, dozens of 3rd party plugins, duct taped together within WordPress... difficult to use, time consuming and confusing to manage. And didn't look so good either. Lot of fun to rebuild this, though took several months. YOOtheme Pro and UiKit were a dream for me to work with, just love those. Made it so possible to create all of the custom sections, widgets, sliders, cards, mega menus, and so on. Don't consider myself a front-end focused web dev, so have a deep appreciation for the time, care and effort that Yoo has put into both UiKit and YOOtheme Pro. Almost no additonal CSS was needed to be written for this; the stock UiKit classes and attributes make it possible to just build things in HTML and not have to fiddle with CSS. Ryan's commercial modules played a major role in the build. ProFields, ListerPro, ProCache, and FormBuilder were all important. FormBuilder+Stripe allowed me to confidently migrate their need for a stripe checkout from some WP plugin to the clean and simple setup now using FB. ( https://sfcmp.org/donate/print-for-sale-dirge-by-hung-liu/ ) Some libraries also were of great use and value, namely PLYR for audio, and tabulator for some table display type of stuff. As always, the API was a dream to work with, many custom import scripts were created along the way to import legacy Press, Albums, Repertoire works, Program Booklets library, Players etc.. The image API is doing wonders with SRC sets, and webp images. The PW documentation site was a daily companion. This forum likewise was always a most valuable and enjoyable resource to search and rely on for solving the occasional conundrum. There is such a wealth of info here that i never found it necessary to post a question. Lastly, to underscore just how unparalleled, flexible and user-friendly the PW backend is, we had the backend training session a couple of weeks after the site was launched, and within 30 minutes, the person who will be managing the content was able to know how to create and manage concerts, blog posts, albums, press articles and more.
  10. Hi @MarkE, One way is to create a json file with the fields you want to give access to from the other module. So if the other module had something like a checkbox, or select field, you would need to copy those field definitions into a new json file, say in your templates/settings folder. Then you would create a new admin page, using the Settings Factory process, and enter the path to that json file. Now the settings factory is storing the override values for that module separately. So in order to now have those be used, it depends on how you are using that module, if it is being used on the front end, you could override the settings but it depends on which settings are public in that module, and how they are output. If you let me know which module you want to do this on i can see if I can figure it out..
  11. Yes i see that the lines that handle the languages (148-154) is not checking if the array key is set yet. Will have to add that check to prevent the warning.
  12. @fruid First create a new admin page (under admin, with admin template) and then select ProcessSettingsFactory as the process. After that you'll see the Inputfields Definition File Path field show.
  13. @Matthieu Thanks for posting this question, and sorry for the delay – the module runs off of a ProcessWire hook, which is the "save" hook, and it only works when you are in the "ProcessPageEdit" process. But, we already provided an api for this module, all you have to do is init the module and then use the "importImages()" method and it will work. Sample Code: $m = $modules->get("ImportExternalImages"); $p = $pages->get(/path/to/page); // or page ID $m->importImages($p); This also assumes you already setup the images and textarea field preferences in the module. After running that api call, the module will search the specified textarea field, analyze it for image URLS and attempt to import all of the found images into the specified image field.
  14. I turn off that "extra web security" or whatever they call it, otherwise it's just a time suck.
