I am unable to successfully return images with the getTag() or findTag() methods that are available. Am I misunderstanding something? 

Media Manager Field. Returns empty string

A Media Manager field is not the same as an images field. It has no getTag() or findTag() methods. Please read more about this here and here. Currently, there is no direct way of achieving what you want.

Hi @toni,

I already responded to your query that you sent via email this morning 😀. This was 7 hours ago. Maybe my email ended up in your spam/junk mail folder? Please have a look. Thanks.

@kongondo 

I’ve just bought media manager and installed it on a fresh pw instance.
 
 
Unfortunately an upload does not appear (small logo image)
and no error is thrown.
 
The User is a super user. Any idea what could go wrong?
Thanks,

Hi @kongondo

I do have the same probleme like @toni, what he showed in his video. My settings: newest mysql and php versions, PW 3.0.165 and Media Manager (Process) v0.1.2 β

The following didn't change anything:

By the way, a quick workaround, if you insist on living on the edge is to do the following:

  1. Edit a Media Manager field (e.g. media_manager_image)
  2. Change its Use Tags setting and save
  3. Revert the change to what it was before and save again

Uploads should now work.

Note though that using the 'Cleanup' feature might still throw the PDO error linked to in the post above.

Thanks for your help

Hi @panx,

Apologies for the issue you are facing. 

@toni's issue was resolved by following steps similar to what you tried above. It was caused by the ProcessWire tags issue discussed here and reported here. I have now set up a troubleshooting guide (WIP) in the documentation to help with this. Please try that first and let me know if your issue is still unresolved. 

Thanks.

Thanks @kongondo
It worked, I had to do the changes three times.

Thanks for reporting back and apologies for the hiccup! I have now updated Media Manager so hopefully this problem will not re-occur for future installs.

Hi @entschleunigung,

Is this a new install of Media Manager? Did you use the updated Media Manager? It still says version 12 but grab it from your download link and install that version. It resolves the issue.

Sorry to derail this thread, I would like to download the new version from my download link, but it seems to be the same version that I bought in May 2020. It always says v0.1.2 β...

Thank you 🙂

The Download link from your email results in a 404?!

If your purchase date is more than 12 months, then the link has expired. Please confirm that and let me know. I can send you the relevant file to update via email. For anything involving order numbers etc, please either send me an email or a PM.

Thanks.

Hi @StanLindsey,

I haven't seen that one before :-). Could you please tell me more about what's on that template? Assuming you have TD installed, could you please tell me/show me the output of the following?

Please add the following debug calls:

<?php
// around line #369 in the method ___render() in InputfieldMediaManager.module
bd($this->mediaManagerField, 'MEDIA MANAGER FIELD');

// around line #38 in the method __construct() in MediaManagerRender.php
bd($mediaManagerField,'MEDIA MANAGER FIELD');

edit: What's the name of your Media Manager Field?  Is it all lower_case?

Thanks.

Hi Kongondo,

Hope your well. 

After looking through this thread, I am not seeing anything specific to my question. So I am dropping it here.

To better explain what I am trying to do, I will give a brief structure of my site. I have a directory which contains multiple locations as parent pages. Each location can have multiple child pages. Location and child pages contain a media manager field which currently pulls in all images allowing the user to select from those. 

What I am looking for is restricting images based off the location page and or child pages of that location that is being edited.

Example: I am editing Location A or any child page of Location A and when I click "Add media", the run time hook would restrict/filter the list of available images that have been tagged as Location A. If a tag wont work, maybe a custom field.

Is there some sort of hook to achieve this functionally?

Thanks for your time.

Hi @RyanJ,

Currently no...but..

If it is simply an issue of giving editors the convenience of easily selecting the images that can be added to the page being edited, we could probably get away with a URL string appended to the URL that opens the modal which Media Manager would be able to read from when the page opens. Alternatively, we could get away with URL segments, which we already have for the page opening the modal and read the settings for that Media Manager field (e.g. with tags, etc) that should be used for filtering the media for the page being edited. However, if the usage is for something more restrictive, e.g. control access to media depending on some user permissions, then that would require some additional checks. I am just thinking out loud here (note-to-self-sort-of).. :-).

Let me have a think, please.

Thanks.

Hi @kongondo

Thanks for getting me in the correct thread. I am not sure how I managed to get lost. 

I think role based would be useful, but I url segments would work for sure. The restriction would be based off the "Parent Page", so Location A and any child pages of Location A being edited, would only get Location A images. 

Maybe disabling filtering could be an option to not allow the client to filter on different images other then what is in the url segment. 

The same concept would need to occur if they added a new image as well. It would automatically get tagged or whatever is used for filtering the images. So and uploaded image would be tagged "Location A" if they are on the Location A page or any child pages.  

Thanks for the prompt response and taking the time to have a look at what I am trying to achieve.

Much obliged and Cheers!

Thanks Kongondo, this wasn't actually an issue with your module in the end. It was due to me trying to be clever and duplicating the ProcessPageEdit from /wire/ and making my own module based on it (in order to remove the bookmarks submenu from certain navigation items).

In the end i've just disabled bookmarks site wide and it all seems to work.

      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.

      Registrazione #33.mp4  

      Registrazione #34.mp4 ---
      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.

      This module is sort of an upgrade to my earlier ImageToMarkdown module, and might be useful to anyone working with Markdown in ProcessWire.
      Copy Markdown
      Adds icons to images and files that allow you to copy a Markdown string to the clipboard. When you click the icon a message at the top left of the screen notifies you that the copying has occurred.
      Screencast

      Note: in the screencast an EasyMDE inputfield is used to preview the Markdown. It's not required to use EasyMDE - an ordinary textarea field could be used.
      Usage: Images
      When you hover on an item in an Images field an asterisk icon appears on the thumbnail. Click the icon to copy an image Markdown string to clipboard. If the "Description" field is populated it is used as the alt text.
      You can also open the "Variations" modal for an image and click the asterisk icon to copy an image Markdown string for an individual variation.
      Usage: Files
      When you hover on an item in a Files field an asterisk icon appears next to the filename. Click the icon to copy a link Markdown string to the clipboard. If the "Description" field is populated it is used as the link text, otherwise the filename is used.

      I've realized that I've been jumping back and forth between the PW API docs and the source code for site modules far too much. The idea to hold all necessary documentation locally in one place has occurred to me before, but getting PHPDocumentor et al set up and running reliably (and producing readable output) as always been too much of a hassle. Today I was asked how I find the right hooks and their arguments, and that inspired me to finally get my backside down on the chair and whip something up, namely the
      Module Api Doc Viewer
      ProcessModuleApiDoc
      It lets you browse the inline documentation and public (optionally also protected) class/method/property information for all modules, core classes and template files in the ProcessWire instance. The documentation is generated on the fly, so you don't have to remember to update your docs whenever you update a module.
      The module is quite fresh, so expect some bugs there. Behind the scenes it uses PHP-Parser together with a custom class that extracts the information I needed, and the core TextformatterMarkdownExtra module for rendering the description part in the phpdoc style comments.
      This is not a replacement / competitor to the API Viewer included in the commercial ProDevTools package. There is quite some information included in the inline documentation that my module can't (and won't) parse, but which makes up parts of the official ProcessWire API docs.
      This, instead, is a kind of Swiss army knife to view PHPDoc style information and get a quick class or function reference.
      If you feel daring and want to give it a spin, or if you just want to read a bit more, visit the module's GitHub repository.
      This is the overview page under "Setup" -> "Module API Docs":

      And this is what the documentation for an individual class looks like:

      The core module documentation can of course be found online, but it didn't make sense not to include them.
      Let me know what you think!
