That's looking great, I would possibly consider having the edit button on the grid view and open in modal. So if you find the image you want to edit the description on in grid, you don't have to go into the edit mode and go looking for it again.

This is some really good stuff! I could really do with this in a recent project where there is a custom png icon set to use on the website and I wanted them to be able look through the list and select the one they want to use :-) 

Keep up the great work.

Nice idea. I was looking into something similar today.

You won't have to. It remembers contexts: What you want is either #2 or #3 below:

  1. In view mode, if you haven't searched for any media, if you click on 'edit mode' button, you will be taken to edit screen for the media type you were viewing, with the first media selected to edit. So, if in view you were on 'all' menu, you will be taken to 'all' in edit. If you were on 'image' in view mode, you will be taken to 'image' on edit mode. 
  2. If in view, you'd searched for media and got back some results, if you then clicked on 'edit mode' button, you would be taken to the edit screen for only those found items, shown one media at a time with pagination. If you got back only one result in the search, you would be taken to the edit screen of only that result (without pagination of course)
  3. If in view mode you click on the title of a media, you will be taken straight to its edit screen, no questions asked :-) See example GIF below

In any of the above scenarios, clicking the view mode button will display the media you'd just edited.

Edit mode: clicking on title of media in 'view mode' - (#3 above)

will media manager support, beside self-uploaded videos, how about video content provider like youbue. For instance, add a youtube link in media manager

Such that I can browse youtube videos added in the media repository

@adrianmak

Currently that's not supported. I might consider it in future versions, depending on demand.

Last major feature has been implemented, so a couple of more testing and its ready.


have you thought about implementing the blueimp file uploader to it? it has built in preview (at least for mp3 and images) and supports client side image resizing. that's one thing i am missing most when it comes to image galleries!

Done. See it action here.

Hi all,

I've realised that in my first post I didn't clarify that Media Manager is going to be a commercial module. I have edited the first post.

Looks amazing. Looking forward to purchasing.

Are you looking for any feedback at this stage or would you rather keep developing it?

Can we get BETA access?

Happy to announce that Media Manager (Beta 001) is ready for release!

I had to change the view/edit modes to streamline these into one unified interface. I think it works better as can be seen in the video below (or if can't access YT, see this instead).

I am working on the documentation this week and 'preparing shelves at the shop' with an aim to officially release the module next week or early the week after at the latest. If you can't wait that long and would like to get your hands on a copy soonest, please send me a PM. I am also finalising a pricing model. Initially, support will be via email.

Thanks for your patience :-)

While this looks powerful, one of the important things (USP :rolleyes:) is missing: What about the embedding context of all this media types. Speaking of responsive websites, picture elements with different image versions, device dependent scaling, video quality etc. As long as all you do is "feeding" a rich text editor that can handle one image (plus a description more or less), you don't need a extraordinary media manager IMHO. But this is only my opinion.

2nd big topic for a "respectable Digital Asset Management" as said above is rights management. A media rights management should manage: who can see, embed, delete, edit, label .. assets. Maybe a separated collection for every user role (speaking of folders again ^-^ ). Most important: access control have to be functional in resource serving context as well (means: you can't access a restricted resource, even if you know it's address).

Media Manager Version 002 is ready

Changes

  • Specify allowed media types for a media manager field (i.e. the field you add to a template). Default is to allow all four types, i.e. audio, document, image and video. Setting is in 'Details Tab' of your media manager field
  • Set the maximum number of media allowed for a media manager field (i.e. maximum per page). Set in 'Details Tab'

Hey Kongondo!

Just bought the module! Awesome work!

Only a little Problem: When using the Admin Theme Reno the Link to Media Manager won't work, because the main Links are not "linked" in the same way as in the regular templates.

Two questions for my workflow:

1. Whats the best way to view the image in the frontend? Are there any MediaManager related methods?

2. Is there currently a way to categorize the images? Sometimes a bit more structure than tags only is even better! ;)

Thanks! Martin

Hi Martin,

Thanks for your purchase. Glad you like the module.

I almost exclusively use Admin Theme Reno (and will be recommending this to others) when using Media Manager - it gives you better real estate. It works just fine for me but I notice (and maybe this is the way it works for any linked page with child pages) I have to double click on the link to make it load Media Manager. The same goes for 'Pages', 'Setup' and 'Modules' links. 

  1. There is an example in the README.txt. The Easter break and illness have meant I haven't been able to finish the official documentation (mediamanager.kongondo.com). The API is quite straightforward. Note that you will first need to create a field of type Media Manager, add that to your template(s), then add media in your Media Library to the field. I have added some examples in the first post of this thread.
  2. Current its tags only. I'll see if there's a way to make this better.

Cheers,

/k

Yes the Reno double-click got me stumped for a while before I figured it out - definitely a "gotcha".  As soon as I went back to the default theme it worked as planned - can we get a fix for this?  ATM I'd be rolling out the default Admin theme to end-users rather than trying to explain that Media Manager link works differently to every other link (and I'd prefer the Reno theme if possible).

I've had a good read through of the Readme and had a play on a test site (so I'm not totally familiar yet), loving the module so far - it's not quite as easy to use as the Wordpress media manager (which is what end users will be comparing to frankly - and maybe limited by being a bolt-on rather than in the core), but an exciting start!

Really love the "versions" of the image that can be created from duplicates with different cropping etc.

Couple of quick ones:

- Even if a field is listed as Image it still shows tabs for Audio/Document/Video which I thought was a bit counter-intuitive (or maybe only happens as a superadmin?).

- Took me a while to figure out which image was active/highlighted in the modal view - maybe a highlight box around or something would be good rather than just the black highlighted name text (or maybe I was just being dense at the time). Same goes for the Edit & Crop buttons on the active image overlay.

- Would like to be able to upload directly dropping into the image list rather than having to go to a separate tab (what I'm aiming for is to have a field that is Image only, so end users just see the Image tab and can select from there as well as drag n drop upload on that same div).  

- Maybe make it more obvious once media is inserted into a page field (should the media manager window close then?).  I found myself adding media multiple times because I didn't realise it'd updated after clicking "Insert Media".

All just minor UX things, and some of it might just be me (therefore, end users) getting familiar with it.  

Great job Kongondo.  This module is getting me closer to doing everything on PW rather than the few that I still do on WP when media management is more important to clients than a good CMS.

@Loges,

Thanks for purchasing Media Manager and giving me your feedback. I'll address each point you raise in a later post.

Oh, and welcome to the forums :-)

The double click issue for Media Manager admin link in Reno looks like it can be solved by setting the Media Manager sub pages to hidden.  Not sure if that breaks anything else (didn't seem to in my quick test) but appears the system is looking for children pages hence the empty dropdown and requirement to double click to go to the main MM admin page.

Brilliant find! Thanks. I will need to make a couple of changes e.g. so that upload settings can be displayed and saved. There might be other minor changes needed as well. Will include this in version 003.

Never used/tested the WP one. Maybe I should have a look.

- Even if a field is listed as Image it still shows tabs for Audio/Document/Video which I thought was a bit counter-intuitive (or maybe only happens as a superadmin?).

Do you mean in the Inputfield (what you see when editing a ProcessWire page with a Media Manager field) or in the Media Library itself? I ask because there are no tabs in the former. The settings for fields only affect individual fields and are not universally applied to the Media Library (the manager itself). But there was a bug in the former in the text being displayed in the Inputfield and I fixed that in MM version 002.

Took me a while to figure out which image was active/highlighted in the modal view - maybe a highlight box around or something would be good rather than just the black highlighted name text (or maybe I was just being dense at the time). Same goes for the Edit & Crop buttons on the active image overlay

I grappled with this (the first part of your statement) during development and settled for highlighting the title with a view to revisiting in the future. Will have a look again. As for the Edit and Crop buttons, I don't understand what you mean. Please clarify.

Would like to be able to upload directly dropping into the image list rather than having to go to a separate tab (what I'm aiming for is to have a field that is Image only, so end users just see the Image tab and can select from there as well as drag n drop upload on that same div).

Am not sure I follow. Are you talking about the Media Library or a Media Manager field - Inputfield?

Maybe make it more obvious once media is inserted into a page field (should the media manager window close then?).  I found myself adding media multiple times because I didn't realise it'd updated after clicking "Insert Media".

Media Manager displays a notice (success or failure notices) when you select media and click on 'Insert Media'. Are you not seeing this in your tests? As for closing the modal window, the idea is that one may want to insert more media from other Media Library pages not currently in view. Closing the window would mean they have to open the modal again in order to insert the other media. I have explained this in the (upcoming) documentation so as not to confuse users.

      Please use the new RockFinder2
      #######################
      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.

      TrelloWire
      This is a module that allows you to automatically create Trello cards for ProcessWire pages and update them when the pages are updated. This allows you to setup connected workflows. Card properties and change handling behaviour can be customized through the extensive module configuration. Every action the module performs is hookable, so you can modify when and how cards are created as much as you need to. The module also contains an API-component that makes it easy to make requests to the Trello API and build your own connected ProcessWire-Trello workflows.
      Features
      All the things the module can do for you without any custom code: Create a new card on Trello whenever a page is added or published (you can select applicable templates). Configure the target board, target list, name and description for new cards. Add default labels and checklists to the card. Update the card whenever the page is updated (optional). When the status of the card changes (published / unpublished, hidden / unhidden, trashed / restored or deleted), move the card to a different list or archive or delete it (configurable). You can extend this through hooks in many ways: Modifiy when and how cards are created. Modify the card properties (Target board & list, title, description, et c.) before they are sent to Trello. Create your own workflows by utilizing an API helper class with many convenient utility methods to access the Trello API directly. Feedback & Future Plans
      Let me know what you think! In particular:
      If you find any bugs report them here or on Github, I'll try to fix them. This module was born out of a use-case for a client project where we manage new form submissions through Trello. I'm not sure how many use-cases there are for this module. If you do use it, tell me about it! The Trello API is pretty extensive, I'll try to add some more helper methods to the TrelloWireApi class (let me know if you need anything in particular). I'll think about how the module can support different workflows that include Twig – talk to me if you have a use-case! Next steps could be a dashboard to manage pages that are connected to a Trello card, or a new section in the settings tab to manage the Trello connection. But it depends on whether there is any interest in this 🙂 Links

      Process Cache Control
      This module provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Clear the ProCache page render cache (if your site is using ProCache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Plans for improvements
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      PrevNextTabs Module
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/PrevNextTabs
      Processwire helper modules for adding page navigation within the editor.
      Overview
      This is a very simple module that adds Previous and Next links inline with the tabs on the page editor. Hovering over the tab shows the title of the previous or next page (using the admin's built in jqueryUI tooltips.)
      Usage
      This module is typically used during development where you or your editors need to traverse through pages for the purpose of proofing, flagging and/or commenting. Rather than returning to the page tree or lister, they can navigate with these links.
      Warnings
      If you are using PW version 2.6.1 or later, the system will prevent you from leaving the page if you have unsaved edits.
      For earlier versions, to avoid accidentally losing changes made to a page that might occur if a user accidentally clicks on one of these, make sure to have the Form Save Reminder module installed.
