Hi @Tom H,

Sorry for the delay in resolving this. Changes had to be made to Jquery File Upload module and not Media Manager. I have done that. Please upgrade to version 6 of Jquery File Upload.

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.

 

On 3/22/2018 at 9:28 AM, xportde said:

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.

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.

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      Advantages
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no Javascript or image required.
      Disadvantages
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode.

      Detailed records
      View mode "Detailed records" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records.

      Cached visitor records
      View modes other than "Detailed records" are cached visitor counts which will be collected on a daily basis from the detailed records. This procedure ensures a faster display even with a large number of data records. Another advantage is that the detailed records can be deleted while the cache remains. The cache can be updated manually or automatically in a specified time period. Multiple visits from the same IP address on the same day are counted as a single visitor.

      Upgrade from older versions
      Cached visitor counts is new in version 1.0.8. If you just upgraded from an older version you might expire a delay or even an error 500 if you display cached visitor counts. The reason for this is that the cache has to be created from the records. This can take longer if your database contains many records. Sometimes it might hit the maximally execution time. Don't worry about that and keep reloading the page until the cache is completely created.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).

      Settings
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      IP2Location
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      Dragscroll
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
    • By Mike Rockett
      TextformatterTypographer
      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.
      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.
    • By robert
      I often had the need for an overview of all used fields and their contents for a specific page/template while developing new websites without switching to the backend, so I made a small module which lists all the needed information in a readable manner (at least for me):
      Debug Page Fields
      https://github.com/robertweiss/ProcessDebugPageFields
      It adds two new properties to all pages:
      $page->debugFieldValues – returns an object with all (sub-)fields, their labels, fieldtypes and values $page->debugFieldTypes – returns an object with all fieldtypes and their corresponding fields // List all values of a pages $page->debugFieldValues // List a specific field $page->debugFieldValues->fieldname // List all used fieldtypes of a page $page->debugFieldTypes I recommend using it in combination with Tracy Debugger, Ray, Xdebug etc. as it returns an object and is only meant for developing/debugging uses. 
      For now, the fieldtype support includes mostly fieldtypes I use in my projects, but can easily be extended by adding a new FieldtypeFIELDNAME method to the module. I use it with five different client installations (all PW 3.0.*), but of course there might be some (or more) field configurations which are not covered correctly yet.
      Supported fieldtypes
      Button Checkbox Color Combo Datetime Email FieldsetPage * File FontIconPicker Functional Image ImageReference MapMarker Multiplier Mystique Options Page PageIDs PageTitle Radio Repeater * RepeaterMatrix * RockAwesome SeoMaestro Table Text Textarea Textareas Toggle URL * The fields with complete subfield-support also list their corresponding subfields.
      Installation
      Download the zip file at Github or clone the repo into your site/modules directory. If you downloaded the zip file, extract it in your sites/modules directory. In your admin, go to Modules > Refresh, then Modules > New, then click on the Install button for this module. As this is my first ›public‹ module, I hope I did not miss any important things to mention here.

      Wire Mail SMTP

      An extension to the (new) WireMail base class that uses SMTP-transport

      This module integrates EmailMessage, SMTP and SASL php-libraries from Manuel Lemos into ProcessWire. I use this continously evolved libraries for about 10 years now and there was never a reason or occasion not to do so. I use it nearly every day in my office for automated composing and sending personalized messages with attachments, requests for Disposition Notifications, etc. Also I have used it for sending personalized Bulkmails many times.

      The WireMailSmtp module extends the new email-related WireMail base class introduced in ProcessWire 2.4.1 (while this writing, the dev-branch only).
       
      Here are Ryans announcement.



      Current Version 0.6.0
      Changelog: https://github.com/horst-n/WireMailSmtp/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
      get it from the Modules Directory Install and Configure

      Download the module into your site/modules/ directory and install it.

      In the config page you fill in settings for the SMTP server and optionaly the (default) sender, like email address, name and signature.
      You can test the smtp settings directly there. If it says "SUCCESS! SMTP settings appear to work correctly." you are ready to start using it in templates, modules or bootstrap scripts.


      Usage Examples
      The simplest way to use it:
      $numSent = wireMail($to, $from, $subject, $textBody); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody); // or with a default sender emailaddress on config page This will send a plain text message to each recipient.
       
      You may also use the object oriented style:
      $mail = wireMail(); // calling an empty wireMail() returns a wireMail object $mail->to($toEmail, $toName); $mail->from = $yourEmailaddress; // if you don't have set a default sender in config // or if you want to override that $mail->subject($subject); $mail->body($textBody); $numSent = $mail->send(); Or chained, like everywhere in ProcessWire:
      $mail = wireMail(); $numSent = $mail->to($toEmail)->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); Additionaly to the basics there are more options available with WireMailSmtp. The main difference compared to the WireMail BaseClass is the sendSingle option. With it you can set only one To-Recipient but additional CC-Recipients.
      $mail = wireMail(); $mail->sendSingle(true)->to($toEmail, $toName)->cc(array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com')); $numSent = $mail->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); The same as function call with options array:
      $options = array( 'sendSingle' => true, 'cc' => array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com') ); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody, $options); There are methods to your disposal to check if you have the right WireMail-Class and if the SMTP-settings are working:
      $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { // Uups, wrong WireMail-Class: do something to inform the user and quit echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; return; } if(!$mail->testConnection()) { // Connection not working: echo "<p>Couldn't connect to the SMTP server. Please check the {$mail->className} modules config settings!</p>"; return; }  
      A MORE ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD!
      You can add some debug code into a template file and call a page with it:
      $to = array('me@example.com'); $subject = 'Wiremail-SMTP Test ' . date('H:i:s') . ' äöü ÄÖÜ ß'; $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; } else { $mail->from = '--INSERT YOUR SENDER ADDRESS HERE --'; // <--- !!!! $mail->to($to); $mail->subject($subject); $mail->sendSingle(true); $mail->body("Titel\n\ntext text TEXT text text\n"); $mail->bodyHTML("<h1>Titel</h1><p>text text <strong>TEXT</strong> text text</p>"); $dump = $mail->debugSend(1); } So, in short, instead of using $mail->send(), use $mail->debugSend(1) to get output on a frontend testpage.
      The output is PRE formatted and contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection, like this one:
       
      Following are a ...


      List of all options and features


      testConnection () - returns true on success, false on failures


      sendSingle ( true | false ) - default is false

      sendBulk ( true | false ) - default is false, Set this to true if you have lots of recipients (50+)


      to ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      cc ($recipients) - only available with mode sendSingle, one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      bcc ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

       
      from = 'person@example.com' - emailaddress, can be set in module config (called Sender Emailaddress) but it can be overwritten here

      fromName = 'Name Surname' - optional, can be set in module config (called Sender Name) but it can be overwritten here


      priority (3) - 1 = Highest | 2 = High | 3 = Normal | 4 = Low | 5 = Lowest

      dispositionNotification () or notification () - request a Disposition Notification


      subject ($subject) - subject of the message

      body ($textBody) - use this one alone to create and send plainText emailmessages

      bodyHTML ($htmlBody) - use this to create a Multipart Alternative Emailmessage (containing a HTML-Part and a Plaintext-Part as fallback)

      addSignature ( true | false ) - the default-behave is selectable in config screen, this can be overridden here
      (only available if a signature is defined in the config screen)

      attachment ($filename, $alternativeBasename = "") - add attachment file, optionally alternative basename


      send () - send the message(s) and return number of successful sent messages


      debugSend(1) - returns and / or outputs a (pre formatted) dump that contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection. (See above the example code under ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD for further instructions!)


      getResult () - returns a dump (array) with all recipients (to, cc, bcc) and settings you have selected with the message, the message subject and body, and lists of successfull addresses and failed addresses,


      logActivity ($logmessage) - you may log success if you want

      logError ($logmessage) - you may log warnings, too. - Errors are logged automaticaly
       
       
      useSentLog (true | false) - intended for usage with e.g. third party newsletter modules - tells the send() method to make usage of the sentLog-methods - the following three sentLog methods are hookable, e.g. if you don't want log into files you may provide your own storage, or add additional functionality here

      sentLogReset ()  - starts a new LogSession - Best usage would be interactively once when setting up a new Newsletter

      sentLogGet ()  - is called automaticly within the send() method - returns an array containing all previously used emailaddresses

      sentLogAdd ($emailaddress)  - is called automaticly within the send() method

      Food Allergens Module
      A simple List of Food Allergens
      My needs were to provide a simple list of food allergens for our clients with restaurant related activity.
      The idea was to simply output the list (to speed up the data entry) without leaving the food menu editing, eg. opening another page in new tab or window.
      This isn't a perfect solution, but it works fine for my needs and I decided to share the base idea.
      This could also be easily used to show little notes or short "vademecum", not only for the list of food allergens.
      ---
      Main features
      The basis
      All moves from a short editing of the module in this tutorial: How to create custom admin pages by @bernhard
      First of all it creates an empty admin page, with a dedicated permission to let safe-user to see it (this permission has to be created as a new ones, manually or by the module).
      Once the page is created, I have hooked its behaviour into the ready.php, to show the content (basically a list).
      A step further
      With the tips of  @bernhard, @Soma (and many others), see here , the magic happens. 
      The new page will be shown as a panel, so editors will not abandon their data entry to have a quick view to the list.
      A little further
      Why scroll to the top of the page to click a link?
      The next step was to create a sticky button only in the food menu pages.
      Again with a @bernhard tip I moved into the customization of this simple module and the related hook.

      How to use this module
      After installed, it creates the page /admin/page/allergens/ and the module is to be setted up. The first field is a CKEditor with multi-language. This is the place where to write the informations that will be shown into the page. The next field is a simply text-area where to place a bit of JS that will be appended to the markup of the text (omit the 'script' tags). I also putted a checkbox with a silly statement: this to think at least twice on the safety of the written JS. Now comes the first way to display the link to the page
      Field Note with Link. Enable and save it. The module will display a new row with 4 selects (1 standard and 3 ASM):
      View mode (to show the page as Panel or as Modal PopUp); Templates to select: select one or more and save before proceed, so the  asm-select of the pages will be populated showing all the pages of the selected templates. Pages to select: also here select at least one and save before proceed to populate the asm-select for fields only with the ones that belong to the selected pages. Select the fields where to place the note and save again. That's all: now you will find into the notes of the selected fields the link "See the List of Allergens".
      At the same way, the option for the sticky button, but with a plus
      The field select is obviously unnecessary, but you could play with the last row: the inline styles to fix your sticky button where you like. Here you could set the sticky position of the <div> and the absolute ones of the <a>.

      Video Explanation
      In these screencasts you could see a custom JS that show a "copy" button near a "hanna-code" call.
      This because I've set a specific one for each allergen to show up a tooltip in the front end.

      Last but not the least
      Actually it works fine for my needs, even if it's much improvable: I'm working on the permissions creation, the uninstall section, a separate configs and defaults and how to include the hook into the module leaving free the ready.php. According to a simpler uninstall. Also I would make the link text as a dynamic text field, so it will be more flexible.
      I always learn a lot here, so I would share my code for whom it could be interested.
      I removed the hanna code references, but I provide you the html list of the allergens, English and Italian too, so you can paste them into the "source" of the CKEditor field to have a ready to use module.
      Obviously you are free to modify the code as per your needs.
      Please, keep in mind that I'm not a pro coder and I beg your pardon for my verbosity (speaking and coding). 😉
      I hope be helpful or for inspiration.
