Media Manager for storing the images?

Each media is a PW page, hidden in admin part of the tree. Non-supersusers never get to see them :-).

Apropos: I never received a download link for the update to 012 by mail. Or do I have to buy a new license?

Subscriptions (update + VIP support) are valid for 1 year. After that you can renew for a fraction of the original price. Otherwise, I don't send out update reminders but post here in the forums. If you have a valid subscription, you can use the resend download links form to get an email with the download link to the latest version (or use the link in the original email you received after purchase). For renewals, please use the renewal form. Any problems, please PM or send me an email.

@kongondo To prevent a misunderstanding: each media is stored in the database, not in the file system?

Sorry I wasn't clear.

Media = $page

Media has one MM field. In the case of images, it is an multi image field. So $page->image_field will give you the image

Media has a title field: $page->title;// title of your media

If you had own fields to Media, you can access them using $page->your_field, as usual.

However, we don't use the variable $page. Instead what you get is a MediaManager Object.

So, Media page object is $mm.

Echo $mm->id: id of the media

Echo $mm->title;

// this is the image field

foreach($mm->media) {

}

Hope this makes sense.

@kongondo Yes, thank you, this is what I had expected and hoped for. My question was in terms of scalability, regarding file system limits. In PW, files are stored in subdirectories under /site/assets/files, therefore we normally have to deal with max directory limits (e.g. 32k). We have $config->pagefileExtendedPaths, but it's marked as beta. So as you mentioned +500k, I hoped for an info regarding the stability of pagefileExtendedPaths (or another way to avoid collisions with max directory limits). When they manage +500k, did they enable pagefileExtendedPaths?

Thanks for this awesome module! Here is some feedback after some hours of testing: When using MediaManager along with Ryan’s ProDrafts, I had to manually disable ProDrafts support for the MediaManager specific templates. Otherwise, inserted images from the MediaManager would not display in the saved pages (neither drafts nor published versions). I figure this was because the images in MediaManager were by default also handled as drafts. After disabling ProDrafts for the MediaManager templates, everything – including working with drafts – works just fine.

Thanks for testing and reporting back. I guess it doesn't make much sense to have a draft media (i.e. using ProDrafts). However, if you have added other fields to your Media Manager templates, you might want those to work with drafts. Hmm. I've never used ProDrafts before but you've given me something to think about.

Hi kongondo,

one of our customers asks, if it would be possible to write out not only the usage amount of media manager items, but also all usages as list with concrete info about field, page etc. I know, this isn't going to be easy, but maybe it's worth the effort, if other users reported the same idea?

Greetings,

Thomas.

Hi Thomas,

I'll have a think. The interface will need careful thought as it would need to be separate from the tooltip.

Any news on this bug?? Thanks!

I rolled back but now I am having issues with JqueryUpload version 008 working, tried rolling back to 002 but I still can't open when I click on Add Media on any of the pages, getting:

Hey @elabx,

Sorry for the delay in responding. I have just tested in a new PW install with only 3 modules: MM, JFU and Tracy. I had to click on Clear Compiled Files 3 or 4 times for it to finally work. Here's what I did.

  1. Upgrade JqueryFileUpload by overwriting the existing files
  2. Delete MediaManagerTabs.php and pocketgrid.css in the current (old) Media Manager install
  3. Overwrite MM version 011 files with version 012 files
  4. Access Media Manager
  5. You might see Class not found error (either MediaManagerUtilities or JqueryFileUpload
  6. Access Modules (on same tab in #4) and click on Clear Compiled Files
  7. Once step #6 is finished, click browser back button to go back to Media Manager.
  8. If you get class error again, repeat steps 6 - 7 as necessary

Please let me know if this works for you. Thanks.

@kongondo Finally managed to updated!! But you know what, now I didn't have to clear anything, it just worked after a module refresh!! Just so you have more info, the only difference was that I namespaced the old modules (in a desperate attempt to bring back everything to work because it kind of broke after I rolled back from my first install failure). honestly don't have very clear what happened, but indeed the new version works flawlessly.

Questions/issues: 

  • I don't seem to be able to drag and drop over the Inputfield. I can give you access to my site if you need to debug.
  • I cannot seem to find the edit button for the image description now, the one that was placed at the top right? Is there a new way to edit the descriptions? Appending how my images look when I click on them.   Jut realized now this is done in a normal, maybe you could enable an Edit link right on the Inputfield? At least on my site it's not showing, I'd guess that's the most practical for editors, instead of opening the Media Manager Popup.
  • I cannot get the alt text on images placed in CKEditor to update accordingly, I also have the setting updated in the Inputfield configuration, have you had any issues with this?

All my questions crossed where solved configuring the Inputfield :)

This is a GREAT update kongondo! I know this has been mentioned before but the improvement in the UI is a huge plus! I see you mentioned you have a lot of users that had never mentioned this, but in my case as with other PW users, all my clients complained about the lack of polish in UI, but this update really solves a lot of the inconveniences.

I don't follow. What is this alt text please? Please clarify which inputfield configuration, CKEditor or MM?

Full documentation is available here, by the way :-).

When you insert an image through CKEditor, ideally I'd want to grab the description from the image's description field. CKEditor Inputfields fields have an option called "Image management" that should enable this:

https://processwire.com/docs/fields/textarea-fieldtype/#markup-html-option

I just can't get this to work well, if I add a new image to the text fields, their descriptions are not pulled from the images. 

My bad again man, I kept on reviewing this on the CKeditor source and just realized this is done on runtime.

@kongondo Thank you for that module. Befor I go and order it, I'd like to make sure that the feature my client needs is included already.

For that client each media item should be available as a public download. So in the list of media in the manager there should be something like a button to copy that public link and when editing media that public link should be displayed also.

I guess the module needs some customizing to do this. Would this be possible through hooks? Especially for the media lists in the manager. Are there hooks available where I could inject some markup or even an extra column in list view?

Since all media are pages, I guess I can hook into ProcessPageEdit for those templates and add the link to display in the page editor screen?

Yes, but Media Manager methods are currently not hookable. I'm not sure you've seen it, but Media Manager allows you to add your own (ProcessWire) fields to the media pages templates. Those will then be displayed in the list (table) view if you configure them to be displayed in Media Manager settings. However, you will not be able to edit the values directly in the table view. Instead, each media has an edit link that when clicked will open the full page for editing - this is a normal (almost) ProcessWire page edit form. You can use it to edit any of the fields in the template as well as the media themselves. In the frontend you access them as $m->your_public_link_field. I hope this makes sense. If not, please let me know.

Thanks.

Hi kongondo!

Recently, I used Media Manager in a client project. In this real world use case, the media library very quickly grew to an extent, where it was too confusing for the client. Of course I know how to apply filters, but for my client, configuring and applying filters was to complicated - even with the relatively new feature of pre-defined filters. So I thought I would ask you, if you could image to implement some additional filter-features, that would make it easier for clients:

- It would be great, if it was possible to set a default filter for every MediaManager-Field. I have a lot of different "image-types", like icons, fotos, sketches and so on. With such a feature, it would be possible to limit the displayed images to just the "type" of image, that suits the context of the current MediaManager-field. Like when applying some product icons, you don't want to choose from the whole library with all the staff portraits.

- Another great feature would be, if pre-defined filters could be applied with one click in the overview. I tried to sketch this in a fake screenshot:

image.png.e2ba4df88805529eb8e8537ea84bd795.png

In this way, an admin could pre-define all needed filters, and the user/client could just apply them with one click - without worrying about or even understanding the actual filter definition.

I guess those features don't exist already, but if so, I would be very happy, if you could point me to any existing solution.
Otherwise it would be great to have those - or similar - features in a future version.

Thanks again for the great module!

This is an excellent suggestion! I'll have a think on how to best implement it but theoretically, it is doable.

Another great suggestion! I would have to rethink the GUI a bit since tabs (Filter: Icons, Filter:Photos, etc) would quickly become unwieldy. 

On a related note, I have been planning to refactor the items shown in the Inputfield Selector (the filters) as there are a number of things not directly relevant to Media Manager that would confuse editors. For instance, the Inputfield shows non-Media Manager fields, items like Path/URL, etc.

I am planning to work on your suggestions and the refactoring in the next update.

I might call on you for a bit of testing before release, if that's OK.

Thanks.

Hi kongondo,

because there's no option for limiting uploaded images to image width and/or height in MM settings (or is there?), we've found out, that the PW-native image field limitations from the underlaying field media_manager_image works (input > maximum image dimensions). Unfortunately, this restriction works quiet, i.e. the MM-upload will be finished without error or warning, but the image will correctly not stored because of violating the image field dimension rules.

Would it be possible to apply the image field rules already in MM upload screen, so that the user can see possible violations before start uploading (like the maximum file size rule from MM settings)?

Greetings,

Thomas.

Actually, there is 😁. See under Settings > Upload Settings > Image. There are settings for min/max height and min/max width. These are directly coupled to the the field's (media_manager_image) corresponding settings. If you change one it will change the other. However, I have just noticed a bug. The min values are decoupled! This shouldn't matter much though since Media Manager will still honour the min values. I will fix these later (i.e. the 'decoupling' issue).

Excellent suggestion! I will add this to my TODO as well. 

NO ETA for above, just yet, sorry. I hope it isn't urgent?

Thanks!

Do you mean Image maximum width / height? So I misunderstood the notes Maximum width / height of resized images (pixels), I thought, this settings are for resizing, not for uploading? But in fact, it corresponds with the equivalent image fields. Maybe you could write the notes accordingly (Max width / height for uploaded images)?

Greetings, Thomas.

      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:

      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.
