How well would it work with your blog module on processwire 3.0?

Hi @quickjeff. I'm not sure I follow. What sort of collaboration between the two modules are you after?

One centralized location for images. But I am running your blog module and latest processwire. Just didn’t want to break what I have built. :-)

Interesting idea. I'll have think. Maybe we can include and option in blog to specify the image field to use, including Media Manager field and similar.

Was just thinking how Wordpress does it. Although I am totally against Wordpress their media manager is good.

Hi there,

is there a way to edit filenames within Media Manager when editing image attributes like title etc.? If not, is this feature already on the roadmap? Or any ideas how to extend Media Manager?

One of our clients is requesting this feature to enable their SEO agency to optimize image file names.

Thanks a lot,
Alex

Not currently. You will be able to do this in the next version of Media Manager (v12) which will be out in the next couple of weeks. Media editing has been changed. Editors can now edit the media page directly, meaning, you can edit the image and other fields directly in the page where it lives using native ProcessWire features. ProcessWire now allows the editing of a file name by clicking on it. By editing the media page directly, you will be able to do this and lots of other stuff. See the gif below for an illustration.

Hi kongondo,

any news regarding the release date for Media Manager 012? Will there be multilanguage support for title and description fields in v012?

Is there a way to participate in beta test? We purchased your module in may 2017, I think.

Thanks,
Alex

There has been a bit of a delay, I'm afraid. It might be another 3-4 weeks (with Easter around the corner), sorry.

Yes :). See this quick video demo.

 

Users will be able to edit media as normal ProcessWire pages. You can upload more media to the page, sort the media, edit image media using the new and any future ProcessWire image functions (focus, crop, sepia, etc), add more fields to the media templates, e.g. text, integer, page fields, etc, (and be able to access these fields using Media Manager API), etc. Basically, you'll be able to do whatever you can do to any ProcessWire page.

Yes. I'll tell you more via email.

Hi @kongondo

I previously encountered an error in the media manager because of a javascript section in ProcessMediaManager.js.

This Code

closeDialog = function(s=1000) {
		setTimeout(function() {
			//$('div.ui-dialog-titlebar button.ui-dialog-titlebar-close').click();
			parent.jQuery('iframe.ui-dialog-content').dialog('close');
		}, s);
}

cause this error on IE and older Safari Versions (9.1.2, It worked though in newer versions -> 11.1) for me:

5acc743747955_Bildschirmfoto2018-04-10um09_58_11.thumb.png.f5db501d10573d82650d4468214c3e43.png

Because of this error the Media Manager doesn't worked correctly anymore (JS didn't function right like mm_top_panel was hidden etc...). I fixed it with changing it to this:

closeDialog = function(s) {
		/*temporary fix*/
		if(s === undefined){
			   s = 1000;
		}
		setTimeout(function() {
				//$('div.ui-dialog-titlebar button.ui-dialog-titlebar-close').click();
				parent.jQuery('iframe.ui-dialog-content').dialog('close');
		}, s);
}

 

Just wanted to draw attention to it since other people could also have this problem. I am using an older Media Manager Version (9.0) so please don't mind if this problem is already fixed in the newer versions of the module.

 

Kind regards
Nukro

Hi @kongondo,

The Module is looking great.
Does it also allow YouTube and Vimeo to be injected into the Manager?
I want my clients to be able to create an easy sortable list of Images, YouTube's and Vimeo's.
I do have custom Fieldtypes which gets the thumbnails and additional info from these platforms. Is there an easy way to integrate this into the Module?

Best,
Harm

Hi @harmvandeven,

Welcome to the forums. Thanks for the purchase.

Currently no, but it's something I've thought about, briefly. I've not been able to decide how to best implement it. For instance, they would need to live under /video/. However, that would require a video file to be uploaded. Also, should the videos be embedded or not, etc? Thinking out loud, maybe we should have a different media type for online content - mainly for YT and Vimeo.

What's the workflow? Your custom module gets the thumbnails and then you upload these as images to Media Manager? Do you want them to be able to play the related videos by clicking on the thumbs? Frontend, Backend?

Sounds cool.

Hard to tell without knowing more about how your modules work. We can discuss here or in PM or email if you wish.

Hi Alex. Not yet. Illness, Easter and Hay Fever all colluded against me:'(. Please note that I'm also upgrading Jquery File Upload alongside Media Manager. I'm working as fast as I can :).

I'm not sure where it should live. I do think you shouldn't get to many categories/media types. From a user perspective it would make sense to be able to add them to /video/. But I'm not sure how how much work it would be to integrate this into your current Media Manager.

Right now I've created a Inputfield and Fieldtype module (for both Vimeo and YouTube). In a simple input field you enter the URL of the video and the module then retrieves thumbnails and additional data form the video using the Vimeo and Google API's. In the config of the module you can set an image field where the thumbnails will be stored. Once additional data has been retrieved you get a video embedded into the backend and an Object with the embed code and additional data to the Frondend.

I'll send you the Bitbucket repo's in a PM.
I'm curious what you think of the integration possibilities. 

Best,
Harm

OK. Makes sense.

It doesn't sound too difficult given the Vimeo/YT API.

I'm thinking we'll add a setting in MM for users to indicate whether they'll want to view/manage online content such as YouTube. We'll create a list for this but currently, support only YT and Vimeo. Later, we could expand this to include other media sources.

9 hours ago, harmvandeven said:

We can add the input to the upload screen as a third tab (only visible if users indicate they'll want to view/manager online content such as Vimeo). So, Add Scan / Online (or Other or something appropriate) - I'll be removing the 'Help' tab. With good documentation, we don't need it. I'll be working on the docs once version 012 is in beta testing. We'll also have an input for the media Title.

10 hours ago, harmvandeven said:

We'll either reuse the file field that video media use to store the image or copy and reuse the image field that image media use in the video media templates.

We'll use an InputfieldTextarea field to store the embed code and other data. We can just reuse the Textarea field we use for MM settings - copy that to the video template. Again, this field will only be added to the video template if online content feature will be used.

For the frontend, we'll have video media return a property with the data required for video output.

I think that should cover it.

OK. I'll have a look.

I just bought and installed the module (v0.1.1 with Jquery File Upload v0.0.6), but get the same “Empty file upload result” error messages as mentioned a year ago. 😞  (Using PW 3.0.98) 

A little bit of testing revealed an interesting pattern:

  1. I upload a single image which is processed without problems. -> Shows up as it should. (I use “After Uploading“ setting no. 1.)
  2. I upload a second single image which returns the “Empty file upload result” error message. -> New image doesn’t show up in the Media Manager and the three temporary files in /site/assets/MediaManager/jqfu/.files_no_show and in /site/assets/MediaManager/jqfu/.files_no_show/thumbnails exist and look good when looked at in the browser.
  3. I upload a third single image which is processed without problems. -> Now all three images (including the second one) show up correctly in the Media Manager.

Unfortunately I can’t tell the exact reason why the error message appears. I even tested small images (around 260 KB, so that should not trigger any memory problems while processing): The png version of one image could be uploaded while the jpg version triggered the “Empty file upload result” error message. The jpg version had about the same filesize as the png file—compressed as well as uncompressed, according to the infos in GIMP.

Sorry to hear that. The empty file upload result error is only a generic message for when the server returns an error or malformed JSON in response to the ajax upload. We need to get to the exact message returned. In Chrome dev tools (or similar), could you please check the ajax response and let me know the exact error returned? Also let me know the names of the images you are uploading and your server environment, thanks.

      MediaLibrary
      Update: MediaLibrary can now be found in the official module list.
      Out of necessity, I've started to implement a simple media library module.
      The basic mechanism is that it adds a MediaLibrary template with file and image fields. Pages of this type can be added anywhere in the page tree.
      The link and image pickers in CKEditor are extended to allow quick selection of library pages from dropdowns. In the link picker this happens in the MediaLibrary tab, where you can also see a preview of the selected image. In the image picker, simply select a library from the dropdown at the top, everything else is handled by standard functionality.
      I've put the code onto github. This module is compatible with ProcessWire 3.
      Steps to usage:
      Download the module's zip from github (switch to the pw3 branche beforehand if you want to test on PW 3.x) and unpack it into site/modules Click "Modules" -> "Refresh" in the admin Click "Install" for MediaLibrary For testing, create a page with the MediaLibrary template under home (give it an expressive title like 'Global Media') and add some images and files Edit a differnt page with a CKEditor field and add a link and an image to see the MediaLibrary features in action (see the screencap for details) Optionally, go into the module settings for MediaLibrary Note: this module is far from being as elaborate as Kongondo's Media Manager (and doesn't plan to be). If you need a feature-rich solution for integrated media management, give it a look.
      Feel free to change the settings for MediaFiles and MediaImages fields, just keep the type as multiple.
      There are some not-so-pretty hacks for creating and inserting the correct markup, which could probably be changed to use standard input fields, though I'm a bit at a loss right now how to get it to work. I've also still got to take a look at error handling before I can call it fit for production. All feedback and pointers are appreciated (that's also why I post this in the development section).

      Edit 09.03.2016 / version 0.0.4: there's now also a "Media" admin page with a shortcut to quickly add a new library.

      Edit 01.05.2016:
      Version 0.0.8:
      - The module now supports nested media libraries (all descendants of eligible media libraries are also selectable in link/image picker).
      - There's a MediaLibrary::getPageMediaLibraries method you can hook after to modify the array of available libraries.
      - You can switch between (default) select dropdowns or radio boxes in the module configuration of MediaLIbrary to choose libraries.
      Edit 10.10.2018:
      Version 0.1.3:
      - Dropped compatibility for ProcessWire legacy versions by adding namespaces
      - Allow deletion of libraries from the Media overview admin page
      - Added an option to hide media libraries from the page tree (optionally also for superusers)

      This module corrects a few things that I find awkward about the "Add New Template" workflow in the PW admin. I opened a wishlist topic a while back because it would good to resolve some of these things in the core, but this module is a stopgap for now.
      Originally I was going to share these as a few standalone hooks, but decided to bundle them together in a configurable module instead.
      Add Template Enhancements
      A module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF. Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.

      Features
      Derive label from name when new template added: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. The label can be added automatically when templates are added in admin, in admin/API, or not at all. There are options for underscore/hyphen replacement and capitalisation of the label. Edit template after add: when adding only a single template, the template is automatically opened for editing after it is added. Copy field contexts when cloning: this copies the field contexts (a.k.a. overrides such as column width, label and description) from the source template to the new template when using the "Duplicate/clone this template?" feature on the Advanced tab. Copy field contexts when duplicating fields: this copies the field contexts if you select the "Duplicate fields used by another template" option when adding a new template. Usage
      Install the Add Template Enhancements module.
      Configure the module settings according to what suits you.

      As I mentioned in this issue, I've create a new textformatter for ParsedownExtraPlugin, which adds some oomph to your markdown.
      Repo: Parsedown Extra Plugin
      Unlike the built-in textformatter for Parsedown and Parsedown Extra, this should be used when you want to use Extra with additional configuration/customisation.
      Some examples:
      ### Test {.heading} - A [external link](https://google.com/){.google} with `google` as a class that opens in a new tab if the config property is set. - [Another link](/page){target=_blank} that opens in a new tab even though it isn't external. ```html .html <p>Test</p> ``` There's some config options available to you, such as setting attributes on all/external images and links, setting table and table-cell alignment classes, adjusting footnote classes and IDs, adding <code> attributes to their parent <pre> elements, and changing the <code> class if your syntax highlighter does not use language-*.
      I was thinking about adding the ability to make links open in a new tab by appending a plus to the link syntax, but only external links should be opening in a new tab anyway. Further, this would add extra, unnecessary processing time.
      Please let me know if you bump into any problems. ☺️

      TextformatterTypographer (0.4.0 Beta)
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      Learn more on my blog
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.
      Please do test it out and let me know what you think.
      Also note that I have indicated support for PW 2.8, but I haven't tested there as yet. This was built on PW 3.0.42/62.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.50
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy!
