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

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.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.56
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy! :)

      As threatened in Ryan's announcement for 3.0.139, I built a little module for sliding toggles as a replacement for checkboxes. Styling of the input is CSS3 only (with all the usual caveats about older browsers), no JS necessary, and may still be a bit "rough around the edges", so to speak, since I didn't have much time for testing on different devices or brushing things up enough so I'd feel comfortable pushing it to the module directory. But here's the link to the GitHub repo for now:
      InputfieldSlideToggle
      Fieldtype and Inputfield that implements smartphone-style toggles as replacement for checkbox inputs. The visualization is CSS-only, no additional JS necessary.
      Status
      Still very alpha, use with caution!
      Features / Field Settings
      Size
      You can render the toggles in four different sizes: small, medium, large and extra large.
      Off Color
      Currently, "unchecked" toggles can be displayed either in grey (default) or red.
      On Color
      "Checked" toggles can be rendered in one of these colors: blue (default), black, green, grey, orange or red.
      Screenshots

      Hi Guys
      I needed to add extended functionalities for the InputfieldDatetime Module (module is from processwire version 2.7.3) because of a Request of Customer.
      So I duplicated the module and placed it under /site/modules/.
      I have added 3 new Settings to the InputfieldDatetime Module.
      1. Day Restriction - Restrict different days based on weekdays selection (e.g. saturday, sunday) - WORKING

       
      2. Time Slots - Define Time slots based on custom Integer Value (max is 60 for 1 hour) - WORKING

       
      3. Time Range Rules per Weekday - Define a minTime and MaxTime per Weekday (e.g. Opening Hours of a Restaurant) - NOT WORKING PROPERLY

       
      The Problem
      Time Slots and Day Restriction working fine so far. But the Time Range Rules per Weekday doesn't work right.
      What should happen is, that when you click on a date, it should update the minTime and maxTime of the Time Select.
      But the change on the select only happens if you select a date 2 times or when you select a date 1 time and then close the datepicker and reopen it again.
      The time select doesn't get change when you select a date 1 time and don't close the picker.
      Here is the whole extended InputfieldDatetime Module.
      The Files that I have changed:
      InputfieldDatetime.module InputfieldDatetime.js jquery-ui-timepicker-addon.js (https://trentrichardson.com/examples/timepicker/) - updated it to the newest version, because minTime and maxTime Option was only available in the new version  
      Thats the Part of the JS that is not working correctly:
      if(datetimerules && datetimerules.length){ options.onSelect = function(date, inst) { var day = $(this).datetimepicker("getDate").getDay(); day = day.toString(); var mintime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-mintime'); var maxtime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-maxtime'); console.log("weekday: "+day); console.log("minTime: "+mintime); console.log("maxTime: "+maxtime); var optionsAll = $(this).datetimepicker( "option", "all" ); optionsAll.minTime = mintime; optionsAll.maxTime = maxtime; $(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); $(this).datetimepicker(optionsAll); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); //$.datepicker._selectDate($(this).attr("id"),date); //$.datepicker._base_getDateDatepicker(); // var inst = $.datepicker._getInst($(this)); // $.datepicker._updateDatepicker(inst); /*$(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); InputfieldDatetimeDatepicker($(this), mintime, maxtime); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); */ // $(this).datetimepicker('option', {minTime: mintime, maxTime: maxtime}); } } Can you have a look and find out what the Problem is?

      This module tracks changes, additions, removals etc. of public (as in "not under admin") pages of your site. Like it's name says, it doesn't attempt to be a version control system or anything like that - just a log of what's happened.
      At the moment it's still a work in progress and will most likely be a victim of many ruthless this-won't-work-let's-try-that-instead cycles, but I believe I've nailed basic functionality well enough to post it here.. so, once again, I'll be happy to hear any comments you folks can provide
      https://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-changelog/
      https://github.com/teppokoivula/ProcessChangelog
      How does it work?
      Exactly like it's (sort of) predecessor, Process Changelog actually consists of two modules: Process Changelog and Process Changelog Hooks. Hooks module exists only to serve main module by hooking into various functions within Pages class, collecting data of performed operations, refining it and keeping up a log of events in it's own custom database table (process_changelog.) Visible part is managed by Process Changelog, which provides users a (relatively) pretty view of the contents of said log table.
      How do you use it?
      When installed this module adds new page called Changelog under Admin > Setup which provides you with a table view of collected data and basic filtering tools See attached screenshots to get a general idea about what that page should look like after a while.
      For detailed installation instructions etc. see README.md.

      If you are interested, you can test the current state of development:
      https://github.com/gadgetto/SnipWire
      Please note that the software is not yet intended for use in a production system (alpha version).
      If you like, you can also submit feature requests and suggestions for improvement. I also accept pull requests.
      ---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      (please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about)
