Hi @zoeck,

Thanks for your interest in Media Manager. I can't give a definite date but it will be in the autumn.

Hi, I recently bought the Mediamanager but I am not able to configure tagging of single media files properly. I followed the instructions on https://mediamanager.kongondo.com/documentation/getting-started/enabling-media-tags/ but no matter what option of tagging I choose ("User enters tags by text input", "User selects from list of predefined tags" or "User selects from list of predefined tags + can input their own") only the first option seems to work (entering text by myself). That is not very comfortable for the user and also kind of error prone. Are the other options just not implemented correctly or am I doing something wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @ampersand83,

Many thanks for the purchase. Welcome to the forums as well :-).

Predefined tags in ProcessWire are relatively new. Updating Media Manager to include the feature is planned, although it may not make it in the next (soon) release.

Just to clarify my post above, @ampersand83, my answer is in reference to bulk adding/editing tags. In the upcoming version, media will be edited in a modal in its original page. Hence, you will be able to use any tags input as normal.

Thank you @kongondo  for your quick reply. That sounds nice. I really hope you will be able to release the new version this year. I'm looking forward to hopefully many improvements to that already nice module.

Hi,

I'm new to Processwire. I've recently bought and installed Media Manager, and I have a couple of questions.

I've added Media Manager field as part of a fieldgroup which is placed in a Repeater field (for users to specify image sets for the masthead). There's a small bug in which closing the media manager Insert media dialog box will remove the new Repeater row that is added. It doesn't happen to regular images field. I've attached a video below for illustration purposes.

 

Also, is there a way to consolidate all the files under 1 directory? Most of the time we upload the files into 1 directory (example: assets/images ) and upload them through FTP and the content editors add in the files from the same directory.

Thanks for reporting this. I'll have a look. I couldn't see this happening in your illustration video though; must have missed it :-).

I'm not sure I follow completely. You are able to FTP files into the directory /sites/assets/MediaManager/uploads/. You can then use the scan feature in the uploads dashboard to move the files to the Media Manager library. The main purpose of Media Manager is to create one large, central bucket for all your media. Content editors should then be able to pick any of the images in Media Manager to use in any page. Please let me know if I misunderstood your request.

Sorry that the previous video doesn't depict what I was doing correctly and might have caused some confusion. Below is a more accurate representation of what it is about. Basically whenever I add a new row and insert a media element with the media manager, upon closing the media manager dialog window, it 'erases' all the repeater/repeater_matrix rows for the entire page. I'll have to add back all the rows (it kind of makes it a bit annoying to use. Although I can get it to save in the end, I'll have to do it 25 times if the masthead carousel has 5 rotating images). 

 

There is a JS error too when I access media manager or add an image.

Thanks for the tips. What i'm referring to is after scanning, each individual image is placed in its own separate folder with an id as the folder name. Is there any way to keep everything within a single folder after scanning? It is tedious to make changes to images, can't just ftp them in and see the changes reflected immediately on the frontend. 

Does scan have an overwrite existing files function?

Hey @kongondo,

I just purchased your media manager module, thank you for providing it. As far as I can see it works, but it looks broken with AdminThemeUiKit. When I bought it I was expecting it to look like in the screenshots. Now I don't want to show it to the client like that. Do you have a V12-beta I can use?

Also when I upload mp4 videos I get an error saying "filetype not allowed", although mp4 is in the list of allowed extensions. Is this aknown error?

Hi @Youbility,

First, please accept my apologies for not getting back to you earlier. I've had some serious computer issues that have set me back a couple of weeks. I hope to be back to 'normal' by the end of this week.

I think you saw the screenshots for the upcoming beta version. Its release has now also been delayed (some unforseen bugs, etc). The current version is not compatible with UIKit. The beta version is not production ready too.

This is totally understandable. How would you like to proceed? The beta version may not be out soon. If using an older admin theme, e.g. Reno, is out of the question, then the only option left is not to use Media Manager until the new version is out. I'm happy to offer a refund if you'd rather not wait for the new version. Please do let me know.

Thanks.

Yes. This has been fixed in the upcoming version. The bug had to do with satisfying some ProcessLister requirement.

Behind the scenes each image is a page in ProcessWire. That's why you see this. The ID is the id of the page with the media.

On 11/9/2018 at 2:30 AM, Nekorin said:

Currently no, but sounds like an idea/feature request to consider. Maybe a checkbox or a pattern to detect if images should be kept together e.g. house-1.jpg, house-2.jpg, etc. The upcoming version of Media Manager allows to add images to an existing media page.

What sort of changes are these? Changing the images? Cropping? Other?

No. I'll see if I can add this.

That would only happen if the MIME type of the video is some other format not recognised by the system. Are you able to check the MIME type and let me know? If not, I can send you some code to help.

      I'm really in love with FormBuilder, but the one thing missing to match all my end users' expectations were repeatable field groups. Think repeaters, in ProcessWire terms. Our primary application of PW is our corporate intranet, so "lines" of fields are quite common in the forms I build. We have all kinds of request forms where the information for a varying number of colleagues needs to be entered (from meal order to flight booking request) and where it is simply impractical to send a form for each, and I don't want to clutter my forms with multiple instances of fields that may only get used ten percent of the time.
      That's why I started to build FormBuilderMultiplier (link to GitHub).
      What it does:
      Adds an option to make a regular Fieldgroup repeatable Lets you limit the number of instances of a Fieldgroup on the form Adds an "Add row" button the form that adds another instance of the Fieldgroup's fields Adds a counter suffix at the end of every affected field's label Stores the entered values just like regular fields Makes the entered values available in preview and email notifications Supports most text based fields, textareas and selects (really, I haven't had enough time to test all the available choices yet) What it doesn't do (yet):
      Support saving to ProcessWire pages (i.e. real Repeaters) I haven't tested all the validation stuff, Date/Time inputs etc. yet, but since I'm utterly swamped with other stuff at work, I didn't want to wait until I have it polished. Any feedback is welcome. There might also be some issues with different output frameworks that I haven't encountered yet. The forms I work with mostly use UIKit.
      Status:
      Still alpha, so test well before using it in the field.
      Known issues:
      When rows are added, the form's iframe needs to be resized, which isn't completely clean yet.
      How it works:
      The Fieldgroup settings are added through regular hooks, as is the logic that adds the necessary field copies for processing the form and displaying previews.
      "Multiplied" field instances are suffixed with _NUM, where NUM is an incremental integer starting from 1. So if you have add two fields named "surname" and "givenname" to a fieldgroup and check the "multiply" checkbox, the form will initially have "surname_1" and "givenname_1" field (I'm still considering changing that to make the risk to shoot oneself into the foot by having a regular "surname_1" field somewhere else in the form less likely).
      When a "row" is added, the first row is cloned through JS and the counter in the fields' IDs, names and "for" attributes as well as the counter in the label are incremented before appending the copies to the Fieldset container in the form.
      To keep backend and frontend in sync, a hidden field named [name of the fieldset]__multiplier_rows is added to the form. Both the backend and the frontend script use this to store and retrieve the number of "rows".
      ToDo:
      Naturally, add the option to store the data in real repeaters when saving to pages. Do a lot of testing (and likely fixing). Make a few things (like the "Add row" button label etc.) configurable in field(set) context. Add a smooth API to retrieve the multiplied values as WireArrays. The mandatory moving screenshot:

      Hello there,
      I'm working on a tiny textformatter module that searches the text for titles of other pages on your site and creates hyperlinks to them. I'm not sure if something like this exists already, but I haven't found anything in the module directory, so I wrote my own solution ūüôā
      It's not properly tested yet and is still missing some functionality I would like to implement, so at the moment it should be considered in BETA. Features include limiting the pages that will get searched by template, and adding a custom CSS class to the generated hyperlinks. As I'm writing this I noticed that it will probably include unpublished and hidden pages at the moment, so yeah ... it's still in development alright ūüėÖ
      You can download the module from Github:
      https://github.com/MoritzLost/TextformatterPageTitleLinks
      There's some more information in the readme as well.
      Anyway, let me know what you think! I'm happy about any feedback, possible improvements or ideas on how to improve the module. Cheers.

      This module provides a way to rapidly generate Page fields and the required templates and pages for use as a drop down select (or any other Page field type).
      This module will let you create a full page field setup in literally a few seconds 
      To use, run Page Field Select Creator from the Setup Menu
      Enter a Field Title, eg: Room Types Select Options - These will become the child pages that will populate the page field select options. There are two different options.
       
      Option 1. TITLE FIELD ONLY - enter one option per line, eg:
       
      Single
      Double
      Suite
       
       
      Option 2. MULTIPLE FIELDS - the first line is used for the field names and the first field must be 'Title'. Subsequent lines are the values for the fields, eg:
       
      Title, Number of Beds, Number of People, Kitchen Facilities
      Single, 1, 1, Fridge Only
      Double, 2, 2, Fridge Only
      Suite, 3, 6, Full Kitchen
        Choose the parent where the page tree of options will be created, eg a hidden "Options" parent page Select a "Deference in API as" option depending on your needs Choose the input field type Check whether "Allow new pages to be created from field?" should be enabled. As an example, if you entered "Room Types" as the field title, you would end up with all of the following automatically created:
      a fully configured page field called: room_types MULTIPLE FIELDS OPTION - 3 additional fields - number_of_beds, number_of_people, kitchen a parent template called: room_types a child template called: room_types_items (with either just a title field, or with the 3 additional fields as well) a parent page called: Room Types a series of child pages named and titled based on the per line entries in the Select Options textarea The templates are configured such that the "room_types_items" child template can only have the main "room_types" template as a parent, and vice versa.

      Then all you have to do is add the newly created page field to any template you want and you're ready to go!
       
      You can grab it from:
       
      Modules directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-page-field-select-creator/

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.
