    Maybe I'm missing something, but I've been using the following technique to darken my 'hero' images so I can put white text over the top: In my template, I have two fields, 'hero_image' and 'hero_overlay' (usually an integer if I'm dealing with alpha/opacity - or a text field if I want to specify rgba colour values). <?php $hero = "{$page->hero_images->first->width(1920)->url}"; //simplified; I usually do some responsive stuff here. $heroOpacity = $page->hero_overlay ? $page->hero_overlay : 0.3; // set a default opacity $heroOpacity = $heroOpacity * 0.1; //convert integer to a percentage. ?> <section class="hero" style="background: url('<?php echo $hero; ?>') 50% 50% no-repeat;background-size: cover;"> <div class="hero-overlay" style="background: rgba(0,0,0,<?php echo $heroOpacity; ?>)"></div> ... </section> Styles: .hero has a fixed height and .hero-overlay is absolutely positioned to fill the width and height of .hero. (I use 'first->' with my hero images because I like to try out different images and the ones I don't use can stay in the system in case I change my mind). The beauty of this system is that you can match the overlay opacity to the image to get the best fit between text legibility and hero image. I suppose you could reverse this and apply css opacity to whatever div holds the background image, thereby controlling the opacity of the image and letting a background color fill show through (as the ngrmm mentions in the o.p.) You can see this here: Play with the opacity in the inspector. You can also expand this with 'rgba(x,x,x,x,)' instead of opacity to get coloured overlay effects.

    I’d like be able to show mine, but it is horribly out of date, so here’s one I did awhile ago for my (ahem, very talented) daughter: Also perhaps And although it’s not a portfolio, per se, this gallery goes into a bit more depth about their pieces and might provide some inspiration.

    Ok, I'm revisiting this. I guess I need to echo the form when I use Ajax: if ($config->ajax) { echo $modules->get('SimpleContactForm')->render(); } else { Now the form works fine with one exception: when I submit the form with required fields empty, ajax works and I get the red 'Missing required field' text, but when I submit a second time (with or without entering data in a required field), the page submits without Ajax (i.e., it refreshes). I suspect it's a jquery thing; any suggestions? Here's the work-in-progress: Thanks in advance.

    Hi all. Great module, Justb3a. It was easy to set up and get working, submitting to the same page without Ajax. Now I'm trying to do it with Ajax but something's not right: when I submit a blank form (expecting errors for required fields), the form disappears from the page without any notice (and without refreshing, so it's sort of working). Same if I submit the form with all the fields filled-in (I expect a Success message and no form, as without Ajax). I don't get any console errors. I've included the simplecontactform.js and initialised it per the instructions. My contact-page.php looks something like this: <?php if ($config->ajax) { $modules->get('SimpleContactForm')->render(); } else { include("./includes/"); ?> ... <div class="row row-2"> <div class="col"> <?php echo $page->body; ?> <div><!-- if I remove this div, the entire .col div disappears --> <?php echo $modules->get('SimpleContactForm')->render(); ?> </div> </div> ... <?php include("./includes/"); } ?> Am I doing something wrong here? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Doh! I had, but not correctly, I guess. Once I echoed '$modules->get("MarkupGoogleRecaptcha")->getScript();', it worked. Thanks for your help. Now I need how the rest of it works. Cheers, Paul

    Hi @flydev My, that was quick! I did put this in my ready.php file, but don't see a captcha. Do I need to include your '$captcha = $modules->get("MarkupGoogleRecaptcha");' on the page? (I've tried it both ways). I've also tried this $f->markupText = 'Foobar'; (instead of your module) and 'Foobar' appears above the submit button, as expected.

    Hi @flydev. Great module. I'm using it on a custom form. I'd like to add it to an existing site where I've used Ryan's Form Template Processor module. (It's a long form; I'd rather not start from scratch). I've had a look at what you did with the log in form above; would I take a similar approach? Is there an easy way to slot the Captcha form in before the submit button (instead of outside the generated form)? I'm pretty new to hooks, if that's what's needed. Any suggestions appreciated.

    @kixe Thanks for the update. I'll check it out. @Can I'll pass for now, but thanks for the module.

    Hi. Nice module, seems to work pretty well. A few suggestions about configuring/customising. I like to keep my css files to a minimum, so I'd like to move the styles to my site css file (rather than inserting it after the first <link>). But when I untick the 'inject modules stylesheet?' option, it removes classes from the markup and hides the top/bottom, dark/light options. How about keeping these options available and just letting the user know that the css must then be manually added to a stylesheet? I've done modified my installation to do that and it works well. Also, when I've changed the class prefix in the config file, I had to still manually change one class: I changed Line 104 of the module.php file from $cookieConsentForm .= "<p class='mCCF__message'>"; to $cookieConsentForm .= "<p class='{$classPrefix}__message'>"; You may want to update that. Thanks again for the module.
  10. Update: a couple of days later, the problem returned. I contacted support for this account and after a bit of back and forth, I gave up. I took a look at the hosting Plesk cp and saw that mod_sec is turned off. The PHP version was 5.3 (I'm pretty sure I had it at 5.6) so I changed it back to 5.6. I'm basically back where I started. Maybe I'll move the account to my reseller hosting. Everything works fine there...
  11. So, as PWaddict predicted, turning off mod_security did the trick, but I couldn't do it with the htaccess rule. I tried that first, but it didn't do anything, so I disabled it in the Plesk control panel. (It's under 'Web Application Firewall..'; I've set it to 'detection only' rather than 'on' or 'off'. If anyone knows of a downside to this or if I can target something more directly, please let me know). But the video now appears as it should. Thanks all.
  12. Ah, I should have mentioned that. Since this is alive site, and that's an upcoming gig, I needed a workaround. I'm not using the module there, just a special field that inserts the YouTube URL in an iframe. I prefer the responsiveness of Ryan's module. @netcarver I've run into that problem in the past, so I've checked. All clean text. @PWaddict That sound promising. I've had problems with mod_security before. I'll try it out a bit later today. Last night I created a local version of the site and the videos loaded fine, leading me to think it's a hosting/php/config thing.
  13. @artaylor I've tried different URLs with similar results. I just tested the embed URL and that didn't work. And as @adrian pointed out, but short form does work (on the 'good' site). I checked other text formatters to make sure they didn't conflict. One thing I just thought of is that they are served from different hosting companies (StableHost vs HostingUK) so differing server configs could be in play...
  14. Hi all. This has been driving me nuts: I've used this module previously and it worked perfectly. I've got it on 2 sites, but music-related. One works normally; I use the textformatter on the body text and videos display fine. The other only works if it's a Vimeo video; YouTube URLs slow the page loading then only displays the URL. I've tried a number of tests and different URLs and I can't figure this out. Both sites are not new and I'm pretty sure that it used to work where now it doesn't. Here are two samples (they are past gigs, so I can play around with them without messing up the live sites): Works: Doesn't Work: Any suggestions?
  15. As a follow-up: I had the same problem and tried everything – including the one recommended by prestoav. I am developing 3 sites running on a FastHosts reseller account. All running PW 3.0.42 on php 5.6. One is on an older server and had no problems uploading images. The other two are on their newer 'cluster' servers and those were the sites with problems uploading. Long story short, the FastHosts support investigated and said that turning debug OFF in the site config file would solve the problem. Sure enough, that's fixed the problem. I don't know if it is a problem with PW, FastHosts servers or what, but if anyone encounters this problem, it's worth checking your debug setting.
