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.

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.

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

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.

Hi Kongondo, apologies for delayed reply...

Fore reference I have MM v0.0.2 and PW dev 3.0.12.

1. Re inputfield - yes I've created a new field and applied to page (only ticked Image when creating the field).  When I then go to edit a page with this field, it says "Allowed Media Types: Image".  If i click Add Media in that field the modal pops up and I see tabs at the top for All, Audio, Document, Image, Video, Upload.  The field type is "Media Manager" - have I used the wrong field type?

2. Yes I don't know the answer for the highlighting - it's probably just something you get used to.  Same with the Edit and Crop buttons - on a dark image you just can't see them unless you hover on the large image on the right hand side.  Again, probably just something that can be trained into users, I'm being picky :-).

3. My ideal workflow for users when editing a page is, open media library from the page field to select an image to insert.  There would be only the images displayed (no All, Audio, Document etc).  To upload a file from that window they could just drag n drop a file to that modal window and it would get added to the image list.  This might be a moot point if I've set up wrong re point 1 above.

4. Yeah I'm seeing the success notifications.  I just can't think of a time when a user would need to do more than one action in that modal window.  If they want to insert multiple images they'd just highlight them all then click Insert (which is what happens now).  If they've done that then they don't need the modal window open any more.  I admit this may not be the workflow for everyone but in the instances I can think of for my users, 95% of the time having the window close on successful insert would be preferable.  I take your point about having multiple pages to scroll through changing this.  I suppose the vast majority of my use cases are inserting only one image per field (ie it's an image field rather than a carousel).  Maybe there could be an "Insert & Close" button in addition to the "Insert Media" button?  Depends whether you think that makes it more cluttered/confusing vs benefit.

@Loges

#1: I now get it. When you click the link 'Add Media' the modal it opens is essentially the Media Library part of Media Manager, i.e. ProcessMediaManager, but styled slightly differently from what you see when you directly access the Media Library from the ProcessWire admin menu. I am working on a way to only show navigation/tab items that are relevant to the current field you are inserting to. So, in your case, if you only had images, the only tabs you should see are 'Images' and 'Upload'. If you had allowed, say documents and video, then, you would only see 'Documents Video Upload'. You need a media tab since you would need a way to navigate back to your Media Library  if you went to 'Upload' tab.

#2. Highlighting of the active media (i.e. the media being previewed) has been sorted in MM v003. Did you get my email notification? As for highlighting the crop, edit, icons, that should be sorted with some minimal training. They will always be on the right hand side. :-)

#3 Sort of covered in #1?

#4 I'll look into insert and close

Until your question, it wasn't :)....I have made some minor changes to version 005 which now enables this. I'll try and commit this today, if not, then over the weekend. 

Thanks for your interest in Media Manager...

I haven't tried it yet, but this module looks great!

I'm guessing the Media files are stored using PW pages?  Is there any way to add more fields to those PW pages?  For example, I might want to use a text field to store where I got the image from.

I'm also curious how the File Usage works?

  1. Does it just count and list the pages where the media file is used in a media field.
  2. Does it also take into consideration files that have been inserted into text areas?
  3. Does it include pages with text areas that link to the files?

Storage:

Stored in page: Yes. Please see the OP, about half-way down

Custom fields: Yes if you add them directly to the templates but you will not be able to edit those custom fields using the MM interface. In addition, MM pages are hidden in the admin so editing your custom fields will not be ideal (or accessible to normal users). Alternatively, you can use images/files native description and tag fields. These are currently editable directly in your Media Library.

File Usage:

  1. It counts the actual usage in FieldtyeMediaManager field in the DB
  2. No
  3. No

Hi all,

I'm going to be away for the next couple of weeks (4-5 weeks possibly) with little if any access to the internet. I will deal with any queries on my return.

What ProcessWire version are you using with this module and it would greatly help if you would go into more detail about your problem?

I'm using version 2.8 of Processwire and I added media to my page. Wich works fine. I do a var_dump of my media and I get back an object with 1 image, wich is also correct. The problem is that the object doesn't include a url. Normally you do: $image->url or $image->size(x, y)->url but this doesn't work on the media I added by the module. And when I just look to the examples on the media manager documentation it should work like that. Or am I overlooking something?

@Jonathan Claeys Please provide an example of the code you are using to try and get your media image URL.

I haven't used Media Manager, but looking at the documentation for outputting to the front-end there are a couple of things to be aware of:

1. A Media Manager field returns an array (specifically a 'MediaManagerArray') so you need to treat it as such in your template even if it contains only a single media item. The docs suggest looping over it, but if a MediaManagerArray is also a WireArray (the docs aren't specific about that) then you could use other API methods to get items such as first() or get($key).

2. The media itself (an image in your case) is contained in the media property of an individual MediaManager object. So you need to use methods like url or size() on the media property and not on the MediaManager object.

Assuming that a MediaManagerArray is a WireArray and that your Media Manager field is called my_media_field:

$media_manager_array = $page->my_media_field;
$media_manager_object = $media_manager_array->first();
$image_object = $media_manager_object->media;
$url = $image_object->url;
echo "<img src='$url'>";

This is just to give you the idea, and is more verbose than necessary.

Thanks alot,

I just saw my problem. I didn't see you had to call the method ->media also after you got your image field already. :) That solved the problem.

I am now back and slowly catching up with issues. Thanks for your patience.

 

Thanks @Robin S for helping out above. @Jonathan Claeys, many thanks for using Media Manager. Please let me know if you need further clarification.

I can confirm that a MediaManagerArray is a WireArray. I have updated the docs to reflect this.

Media Manager version 006  (released 21/09/2016)

Happy to announce the latest release of Media Manager.

Changelog

  1. mmlink: A CKEditor link plugin (cloned and adapted from pwlink :) thanks @ryan) lets you insert links to the media in your Media Manager Library directly into the Rich Text Editor (RTE). (Instructions on how to setup are similar to those of mmimage as shown in this video. Where it says MMImage/mmimage please replace with MMLink/mmlink respectively, thanks). The plugin is in the folder MediaManager/plugins/mmlink. Please note that currently it is not possible to edit a link's attributes (e.g. rel, target and title). However, a title is auto-inserted in the link (the respective media's title.

Please download latest release of the module from the link in your purchase confirmation email. Let me know if you encounter any issues, thanks.

I have just purchased and installed Media Manager and I have an immediate couple of questions which will determine whether it's actually useful enough for my requirements:

What is the purpose of the image tags? Will it be (or is it already) possible to filter images by a specific tag?

 

I would like to be able to add a whole bunch of images and tag them as 'icons', so that I can filter by that specific tag to see those images only.

If this is not possible, perhaps there's a way to achieve the same result which I'm missing. Please could you help? Thanks.

Hi @spacemonkey95. Thanks for the purchase.

Media Tags: The purpose of 'media tags'...is the same purpose as in ProcessWire (please note: all media can be tagged; not just images); namely, to group related media (images, documents, video or audio) to fulfil any number of functions - easier organisation, finding related things, etc. 

Filtering media by tags: Yes, it is already possible to filter images (or any other media) by tags both in the API and in your Media Manager Library (the Process Module). Please see the gif below.

What is pending is the ability to tag multiple media in one go. Currently, one can only tag one media at a time as shown in my post above. This can be tedious, hence the need for multi-tagging capability. I have started work on this new feature but it won't be ready this week but soon. It is also not possible, currently, to sort media by tags (i.e. the display of media in the Media Library - currently sorted by title). I am also working on implementing this.

Hope I've answered your questions.

Hi @kongondo

Our Agency has purchased your Media Manager which is great Module. But I encountered a few Bugs/Problems. 

On localhost (ProDraft, Multilanguage Fields respectively the multilange installation profie of processwire):

1. Can't upload Videos

video fehler.png

2. Cant change or edit Tags field (it always stays empty no matter what i do).

3. The variations problems is also active here

General Problems on Server (Uses Different Hooks, ProDraft, Multilanguage Fields etc...):

1. Cant change or edit Description field (sometimes it works once).

2. Cant change or edit Tags field (it always stays empty no matter what i do).

3. Variations functionality(cropping, changing dimensions etc...) doesnt work (It just makes a exact copy with the same dimensions and adds it to the file/image field of the  page)

When I upload the image

variations3.png

 

When I use the variations functionality

variations2.png

variations.png

 

Don't know if this is usefull for debugging (All Hooks):

	$this->addHookBefore('ProcessHome::execute', $this, 'rootPage');
	$this->addHookAfter("Page::editable", $this, 'setEditAccess');
	$this->addHookAfter("Page::addable", $this, 'setAddAccess');
	$this->addHookAfter("ProcessPageLister::getSelector", $this, 'setListerAccess');
	$this->addHookAfter('ProcessPageList::execute', $this, 'hidePages');
	$this->addHookBefore('ProcessPageAdd::executeTemplate', $this, 'redirectParent');
	$this->addHookAfter('ProcessPageListRender::getPageLabel', $this, 'addTemplateLabel');
	$this->addHookAfter('ProcessPageAdd::buildForm', $this, 'addFields');
	$this->addHookAfter('ProcessPageAdd::buildForm', $this, 'collapseName');
	$this->addHookAfter('ProcessPageEdit::buildForm', $this, 'addLangViewTabs');
	$this->addHookAfter('ProcessPageEdit::getTabs', $this, 'removeDefaultViewTab');
	$this->addHookAfter('InputfieldForm::render', $this, 'renderForm');
	$this->addHookAfter('ProcessPageAdd::execute', $this, 'addScript');
    $this->addHookBefore('WireMail::send', $this, 'fixOutlookMail');
    $this->addHookAfter('Pages::save', $this, 'hookSave');
    $this->addHookAfter('Pages::clone', $this, 'hookClone');

When I deactivate all Hooks the Problems are still there.

 

PS: I deactivated the draft functionality for the media manager templates.

Saving Variatons in different Dimension works... I didn't recoginzed the radios.... My bad :D But when I save a variation with the same dimensions it still looses the original.

PS: But the cropping functionaliy also doesn't work. It just copy the original one and looses the original afterwards.

Hi @Nukro,

Thanks for the purchase. Apologies for the 'rough start' :-)

1. Uploading Videos:

  • Have you specified .mp4 as an allowed extension? If not, you need to do that under Upload, then Settings Tab, scroll down to Settings: Video > Valid video file extensions
  • What error is returned in the console (in response to the ajax request)?
  • It could be an allowed file size issue. The error returned by the server will shed light on this

2. Editing Tags:

  • Did you enable tags for the 4 media templates? Please have a look at the install instructions here, thanks. I have tried and have so far been unable to programmatically enable tags on install

3. Variations

  • Hmm, that's quite a number of issues. 
  • Cropping: are you using Save as Copy?
  • Are you developing locally or could I get some temporary access to the site to have a look around?

PW version? Currently we don't officially support version 3 until there is an official release (which is soon!)

Edit:

How are you uploading images/media? In your screenshot above I see you are directly editing an image...

Thanks for you quick Answer @kongondo

I'm testing the media manager at the moment on localhost with a blank processwire install

1. Uploading Videos:

.mp4 is specified as an allowed extension. I looked into the console and I am getting this error from the ajax call:

variations.png

2. Editing Tags

Thanks. I enabled now the tags for the media manager fields. It works now.

 

3. Variations

For cropping I am using 'save as copy'. It just makes a exact copy of the origin image and afterwards it looses the original one. The same happens when I save(save as copy) the image with the original dimensions.

 

4. Uploading Images/Videos

I'am uploading all the files from the upload tab in the media manager module (jqueryfileupload).

      Repeater Images
      Adds options to modify Repeater fields to make them convenient for "page-per-image" usage. Using a page-per-image approach allows for additional fields to be associated with each image, to record things such as photographer, date, license, links, etc.
      When Repeater Images is enabled for a Repeater field the module changes the appearance of the Repeater inputfield to be similar (but not identical) to an Images field. The collapsed view shows a thumbnail for each Repeater item, and items can be expanded for field editing.
      Screencast

      Installation
      Install the Repeater Images module.
      Setup
      Create an image field to use in the Repeater field. Recommended settings for the image field are "Maximum files allowed" set to 1 and "Formatted value" set to "Single item (null if empty)". Create a Repeater field. Add the image field to the Repeater. If you want additional fields in the Repeater create and add these also. Repeater Images configuration
      Tick the "Activate Repeater Images for this Repeater field" checkbox. In the "Image field within Repeater" dropdown select the single image field. You must save the Repeater field settings to see any newly added Image fields in the dropdown. Adjust the image thumbnail height if you want (unlike the core Images field there is no slider to change thumbnail height within Page Edit). Note: the depth option for Repeater fields is not compatible with the Repeater Images module.
      Image uploads feature
      There is a checkbox to activate image uploads. This feature allows users to quickly and easily add images to the Repeater Images field by uploading them to an adjacent "upload" field.
      To use this feature you must add the image field selected in the Repeater Images config to the template of the page containing the Repeater Images field - immediately above or below the Repeater Images field would be a good position.
      It's recommended to set the label for this field in template context to "Upload images" or similar, and set the visibility of the field to "Closed" so that it takes up less room when it's not being used. Note that when you drag images to a closed Images field it will automatically open. You don't need to worry about the "Maximum files allowed" setting because the Repeater Images module overrides this for the upload field.
      New Repeater items will be created from the images uploaded to the upload field when the page is saved. The user can add descriptions and tags to the images while they are still in the upload field and these will be retained in the Repeater items. Images are automatically deleted from the upload field when the page is saved.
      Tips
      The "Use accordion mode?" option in the Repeater field settings is useful for keeping the inputfield compact, with only one image item open for editing at a time. The "Repeater item labels" setting determines what is shown in the thumbnail overlay on hover. Example for an image field named "image": {image.basename} ({image.width}x{image.height})

      Hello There Guys.

      I am in the process of getting into making my first modules for PW and i had a question for you PHP and PW gurus in here.

      I was wondering how i could use an external library, lets say TwitterOAuth in my PW module.
      Link to library
      https://twitteroauth.com/

      Would the code below be correct or how would i go about this:
      <?PHP namespace ProcessWire; /* load the TwitterOAuth library from my Module folder */ require "twitteroauth/autoload.php"; use Abraham\TwitterOAuth\TwitterOAuth; class EyeTwitter extends WireData,TwitterOAuth implements Module { /* vars */ protected $twConnection; /* extend parent TwitterOAuth contructor $connection = new TwitterOAuth(CONSUMER_KEY, CONSUMER_SECRET, $access_token, $access_token_secret); */ public function myTwitterConnection ($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret) { /* save the connection for use later */ $this->twConnection = TwitterOAuth::__construct($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret); } } ?> Am i on the right trail here or i am barking up the wrong tree?
      I don´t need a complete solution, i just wonder if i am including the external library the right way.
      If not, then give me a few hint´s and i will figure it out.

      Thanks a bunch.

      Hello,
      this module can publish content of a Processwire page on a Facebook page, triggered by saving the Processwire page.
      To set it up, configure the module with a Facebook app ID, secret and a Page ID. Following is additional configuration on Facebook for developers:
      Minimum Required Facebook App configuration:
      on Settings -> Basics, provide the App Domains, provide the Site URL, on Settings -> Advanced, set the API version (has been tested up to v3.3), add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "http://www.example.com/processwire/page/" to field Valid OAuth Redirect URIs. This module is configurable as follows:
      Templates: posts can take place only for pages with the defined templates. On/Off switch: specify a checkbox field that will not allow the post if checked. Specify a message and/or an image for the post.
      Usage
      edit the desired PW page and save; it will post right after the initial Facebook log in and permission granting. After that, an access token is kept.
       
      Download
      PW module directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/auto-fb-post/ Github: https://github.com/kastrind/AutoFbPost   Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is utilized.

      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup and InputfieldRuntimeMarkup
       
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-runtime-markup/
      GitHub: https://github.com/kongondo/FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup
      As of 11 May 2019 ProcessWire versions earlier than 3.x are not supported
      This module allows for custom markup to be dynamically (PHP) generated and output within a page's edit screen (in Admin).
       
      The value for the fieldtype is generated at runtime. No data is saved in the database. The accompanying InputfieldRuntimeMarkup is only used to render/display the markup in the page edit screen.
       
      The field's value is accessible from the ProcessWire API in the frontend like any other field, i.e. it has access to $page and $pages.
       
      The module was commissioned/sponsored by @Valan. Although there's certainly other ways to achieve what this module does, it offers a dynamic and flexible alternative to generating your own markup in a page's edit screen whilst also allowing access to that markup in the frontend. Thanks Valan!
       
      Warning/Consideration
      Although access to ProcessWire's Fields' admin pages is only available to Superusers, this Fieldtype will evaluate and run the custom PHP Code entered and saved in the field's settings (Details tab). Utmost care should therefore be taken in making sure your code does not perform any CRUD operations!! (unless of course that's intentional) The value for this fieldtype is generated at runtime and thus no data is stored in the database. This means that you cannot directly query a RuntimeMarkup field from $pages->find(). Usage and API
       
      Backend
      Enter your custom PHP snippet in the Details tab of your field (it is RECOMMENDED though that you use wireRenderFile() instead. See example below). Your code can be as simple or as complicated as you want as long as in the end you return a value that is not an array or an object or anything other than a string/integer.
       
      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup has access to $page (the current page being edited/viewed) and $pages. 
       
      A very simple example.
      return 'Hello'; Simple example.
      return $page->title; Simple example with markup.
      return '<h2>' . $page->title . '</h2>'; Another simple example with markup.
      $out = '<h1>hello '; $out .= $page->title; $out .= '</h1>'; return $out; A more advanced example.
      $p = $pages->get('/about-us/')->child('sort=random'); return '<p>' . $p->title . '</p>'; An even more complex example.
      $str =''; if($page->name == 'about-us') { $p = $page->children->last(); $str = "<h2><a href='{$p->url}'>{$p->title}</a></h2>"; } else { $str = "<h2><a href='{$page->url}'>{$page->title}</a></h2>"; } return $str; Rather than type your code directly in the Details tab of the field, it is highly recommended that you placed all your code in an external file and call that file using the core wireRenderFile() method. Taking this approach means you will be able to edit your code in your favourite text editor. It also means you will be able to type more text without having to scroll. Editing the file is also easier than editing the field. To use this approach, simply do:
      return wireRenderFile('name-of-file');// file will be in /site/templates/ If using ProcessWire 3.x, you will need to use namespace as follows:
      return ProcessWire\wireRenderFile('name-of-file'); How to access the value of RuntimeMarkup in the frontend (our field is called 'runtime_markup')
       
      Access the field on the current page (just like any other field)
      echo $page->runtime_markup; Access the field on another page
      echo $pages->get('/about-us/')->runtime_markup; Screenshots
