if they are even replacing an image on upload? 

No, unless they have access to the settings or set the setting themselves or have been informed about the setting.

which image they are replacing

The image they are replacing is one that has an identical name. The image name is is used to create the media title.

Having a problem displaying images on the front end.

I've just purchased MediaManager and have successfully imported a heap of images. Now I am trying to include a MM image and display it via an existing template.

The steps I have followed thus far:
1. Add a new textarea field to the existing template - named PortfolioImage
2. Edit a page and insert a single image into the PortfolioImage field, by selecting a MM image. The image shows up in the edit page.
3. In the template file I added the following line:
             if($page->PortfolioImage) echo "<img src='{$page->PortfolioImage}' class='mainimageH' alt='$page->headline'>";
4. The output I get for that line is: <img src='&lt;p&gt;&lt;img alt=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;hidpi&quot; src=&quot;/landscapes/site/assets/files/1500/ql033n.jpg&quot; width=&quot;1200&quot; /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;' class='mainimageH' alt='some text'>

If I have <img src='{$page->PortfolioImage->url}' instead Tracey Debugger shows this error message:  

PHP Notice: Trying to get property 'url' of non-object in .../web/landscapes/site/templates/photos.php:10

I am clearly doing something wrong. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

PW 3.0.165, MM 0.1.2, PHP: 7.3.16

This is because your PortfolioImage is not a file or image field. It is a textarea field. Textarea fields do not have a url property. 

It is not clear to me how you want to display your MM image (i.e. inside a textarea, e.g. CKEditor) or independently of the textarea (i.e., some_media_manager_field->url). I am not sure if you have seen Media Manager's documentation? If not, please have a look at that first. 

Thanks.

@kongondo now that I have had time to explore a bit more it is making more sense - I had a few family things that interrupted ... male, multi-tasking ... epic fail

I am using PW 3.0.165 and ran into the images not appearing to upload issue, but only on the live site, but that is not causing an issue now.

Is it possible to do something similar to the following using the image media?
echo "<img srcset='{$page->image->srcset('2500x0,/2,/3,/4')}' class='mainimageH' alt='$page->headline'>";

I found a way while writing this. It maybe not elegant, but I'm sharing as it may be helpful in the future.

Quote

foreach($page->photo as $photo) {
  $imgsrcset = $photo->media->srcset('2500x0,/2,/3,/4');
}
     $out = "";
     $out .=  "<img srcset='$imgsrcset' class='mainimageH' alt='$page->headline'>";
     echo $out;
 

 From reading the documentation there are hints about image variations. Is this something designed to provide different images sizes for varying viewport dimensions?

Glad you got it sorted :-).

I have never used srcset myself (I think it is a third-party module?) but this should work since media is a Pageimage object in this case.

This is used in the ProcessWire sense of image variations as briefly explained here. Whilst you can certainly utilise variations for responsive designs, they are not limited to that use.

@kongondowe bought media manager a couple of days ago and are happy so far. but i have one very severe bug and a feature request 🙂

bug: i cant switch pages. when i click on the arrow or page number 2 on the items list i get this error:
{"error":false,"message":"Unknown Lister action"}

so navigation is not possible. pw is latest dev 3.0.187 -> this is obviously a severe bug

feature: 

it would be great if we could save bookmarks for the filter, like the standard lister can. our customer will need to do similar searches over and over and it would be nice if they could store the important ones

I'll have a look but very much likely something to do with your environment or the install went bonkers. This hasn't been reported recently. I'll test and get back to you. Before, that, please give me more information about your environment, i.e. 3rd-party modules and multilingual or not thanks.

Currently this is not available as you've noted. However, you can save filter profiles. Please see the docs here, in case you missed it.

Thanks.

thanks @kongondofor getting back so quickly. pw is 3.0.187 as mentioned, we use multilanguage indeed. we also use multisite (so basically we change the root-homepage with https://github.com/somatonic/Multisite/ based on domain-name) but my guess is, that its not relevant for backend.

but you are right, the standard page-lister from the pages menü cant switch to page 2 either, so its a pw or setup issue... i will try to figure it out with ryan.

also thank you for the doc-link i indeed missed that. perfekt 🙂

Glad you've at least isolated the cause of the problem. If you find a solution, please let me know if there's anything I need to do on MM side. Thanks.

@ryan my i draw your attention to https://github.com/processwire/processwire-issues/issues/1447
thats quite a big deal for us "internationals" as it affects every place where the page Lister Module is used.

i first thought it was in media manager but later noticed that its also in the page/lister/ and so on in the backend:

Did you install Media Manager in a subfolder? If yes, sorry, it's a bug that occurs if you've installed Media Manager in a subfolder. It got fixed a while back but I haven't committed yet. For now, please do this:

Change this line in ProcessMediaManager.module around line #154:

"template=media-manager-settings, parent={$path},include=hidden"

to this:

"template=media-manager-settings,include=hidden"

If that's not it, then please supply more details about your setup. 

Thanks.

Hi @kongondo, thanks fo your plugin, I just bought and installed it and am now setting things up. Just wanted to let you know I had this same problem and this fix worked for me, but I don't have Media Manager installed in a subfolder (I think). My setup is: localhost (MAMP), Media Manager is installed in Applications/MAMP/htdocs/website/site/modules/MediaManager. When I move on to the live site I will let you know if it happens there as well. If you have any questions to help find out more about this bug let me know.

edit: I'm using PW 3.0.165 and MM v0.1.2 β

Hi @kongondo

What is the easiest way to transfer all Media from one processwire installation to another processwire installation where media manager is installed?

What I thought about is the following:

1. Create a JSON Feed with all the absolute URLs to the PDF Files (Our customer only needs the PDFs from the old Installation) in the old Installation.
2. Create a little Importer Script which imports the data from the JSON Feed into the Media Manager in the new Installation.

For Step 2 is there any appropriate API Methods from MM available which I could use, or do I need to setup a native pw import script where I set parent, template and value for the file myself?

Additional Questions
Is it possible to fetch the locations (used on the field (CKEditor or MM Field) on this page) where each media has been used?

Use ProcessWire's Pages Export/Import module. In the demo below, we are exporting everything. In your case, instead of selecting Media Manager as the parent, select Media Manager: Document (since you are only interested in the PDFs). It might take a while depending on the number of media pages you have. Once the zip downloads, import it using this same module (use the import from zip option). Job done. Note that sometimes you might have to repeat an import in case some files were missed. I've seen this especially with images. If you are running out of memory, you can switch to importing batches instead (use the find pages to import using selector option in that case).

Edit: Demo was supposed to show here; but forum doesn't like gifs (old problem). I have thrown the file in this archive instead.

Hmm. I am not sure. I'll have a think.

Hope this helps.

Thanks @kongondo I will try that.

Now I have encountered another problem with the media manager upload itself.
I have installed it on the new system and also did all the access related adjustments.

PW Version: 3.0.194
PHP Version: 7.3.33

When I try to upload media it shows that it was successfull in the console (Ajax POST Request). But when I switch to Tab "all" it doesn't show any media.
It looks like it creates the media pages but there is no actual media uploaded.

screen1.png.c3f1ed4668b441b66ed72e28ab1abab7.png

When I edit the media pages I get this warning:

screen2.thumb.png.4c097f92a060777740716c73e09fd699.png

screen3.thumb.png.8aa7f8699cdebef6d56c53c58644167c.png


Did I forgot some setting that is causing this?

Hi @kongondo

Found this thread https://processwire.com/talk/topic/24718-create-field-with-tags-enabled/

And I could fix it by disabling the tags option on the mm fields and then re-enabling them.

Looks like the mm version (0.1.2) I had installed on my old installation is not the latest one because it looks like you fixed the issue https://github.com/processwire/processwire-issues/issues/1287

Is there a new version of MM (0.1.3?) available?

No there isn't. I just fixed it in MM 012 as it was a very minor fix. Could you please check around line #42 of this file site\modules\MediaManager\configs\fields.json. If you have a 

"fileSchema": 7,

entry please delete that whole line.

Hi @kongondo

I'm new in pw and recently bought Media Manager, now I have the fallowing problem with it:

All works fine (add media, edit media, insert media in ckeditor...). But after I've create a new field (for instance "mmTest")  of type "Media Manager Field (Fieldtype)" I get this error message and I have no more access on the media manager content. It doesn't matter what else I do with this field (create template, create page), it doesn't work. After I deleted the field, everything works again...until I create a new field ("Media Manager Field") again. How can I fix it?

Best thanks for help!

Kono

I have tried to reproduce this on a fresh ProcessWire install (version 3.0.204 [dev]) and I am not getting the error. Could you please let me know your environment:

  1. PHP version
  2. MySQL version
  3. ProcessWire version
  4. Are you testing on a remote or local server?

In addition, could you please install the module TracyDebugger to see if it catches any errors? If your site is remote, I can have a look if I could get temporary admin access to the backend (in such a case, credentials via PM).

Thanks.

This is a relatively old version of ProcessWire. Any reason why you are not on the latest main/master version (3.0.200) at least?
