Ok i solved the video problem with setting the maximum allowed size of uploaded files.

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
upload_max_filesize = 100M

; Must be greater than or equal to upload_max_filesize
post_max_size = 100M

I had 10M before and was trying to upload a 40M video..

@Nukro...Nice. Glad you got them sorted. Any pending issues?

The only issue left is, when I click "save as copy" without cropping or changing the dimensions. It somehows loses the original:

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.

Filtering media by tags

media-manager-media-tags-filter.gif

Hi, thanks for your reply.

The options shown in your gif aren't visible to me, so I'm unable to filter by tags. Do I have an older version installed? I only added it a few days ago.

 

I have another question that's just arisen too. I have superuser rights to my site, but I've assigned limited 'author' rights to another user. When they click on the Media Manager button in a CKEditor field, they get an 'Unrecognized path' error message with 'The process returned no content' underneath it. But it works fine for me. Do you know why this might be? Is it a permissions thing? If so how would I solve it?

Thanks

Apologies, I should have been clearer that the gif in my post is for a dev version of Media Manager (i.e. Settings will move to its own menu). However, even with the current version, the one you downloaded (version: 006), you should still be able to filter by tags. I suspect that you did not enable tags for all your media templates. Your 'author user' not being able to access the media library via the CKEditor icon seems like a permission issue. For both issues, please follow the instructions provided in the 'Getting Started' documentation first and let me know if you still have issues.

Thanks.

Thanks for your quick reply. Sorry I missed those parts in the documentation! That has solved the problems.

This seems to be a really cool module, I'm glad I tried it. I have just one more question: is it possible to upload images to the Media Manager from within the CKEditor button?

Ah, I think maybe you misunderstood my question. I have already been able to insert images from Media Manager using a button on CKEditor, that works fine.

What I'm asking is whether it's possible to click on the CKEditor menu button and be able to UPLOAD new images from my computer to Media Manager. Otherwise I have to upload all the images I need before starting the page, or have a 2nd tab open with Media Manager in it.

Oops, my bad. Currently no. I decided to disable that. I could make the feature configurable though or just leave it on. Thoughts? Let me have a think...

For my particular project it would be a fantastic feature, at least to have the option to enable it.

I have a number of people adding documents to the site, almost all of which will require images as you go along, so it would make it so much easier.

Let me know what you think. That aside, it's a fantastic module and has made the process of creating my project so much easier than using the standard PW images. Thanks for your hard work and continuing support on it. :)

Hi @kongondo

Does this functionality scan all Image and File Fields for new media and create new media-manager-image/file pages? I think it scans the assets/files folders? I have a couple of image and file fields with media in it but the scan functionality can't find any media. Or do I missunderstand the use of this scan functionality?

Hi. Just to let you know that I will be including this feature in the next version of Media Manager. At the moment I don't have an ETA due to a couple of competing demands from my other commercial modules. I am hoping for a release in about 3 weeks's time. I hope that is not too late for your project? Thanks.

Greetings Nukro

Hi. It does not scan your assets/files folder. Instead...

  • It scans all media uploaded to a particular directory (see below)
  • The media could be 'loose' or zipped, in nested folders, etc..
  • Thorough checks (validation) are conducted: allowed extensions, mime_types, minimum and maximum file sizes, and for images minimum/maximum width and height. Any media failing any validation will be deleted
  • To use the function, FTP or upload media to the directory: /site/assets/MediaManager/uploads/
  • That folder should be created automatically when you access Media Manager if folder permissions allow. Otherwise, you'd have to create one
  • Each media will be correctly identified and added to the correct media type (audio, document, image, video) in your Media Library
  • Once added to the Library, the files uploaded to ..../uploads/ will be deleted

Hope this answers your question. Please also have a look at the 'help' tab under the menu 'Upload' in Media Manager.

Thanks.

EDIT: solution found, thanks @kongondo

Hi!
I have a problem with this Module.
I cannot select a single image to make changes in the description, etc, because it is always the FIRST image in the array selected (seen as the big image on the right).

if i choose another one (yes, even, if i only select one instead of more) , i can INSERT it, but impossible to get it "selected" and shown on the right side to make changes.

i have to use the filter to search for the image so that it will be in FIRST position on the left, only after this it is possible to select it.

i'm on PW2.7.2

@vanderbreye,

Many thanks for using Media Manager.

Apologies, documentation is seriously lagging behind. I am trying my best to complete it. 

To select a media for editing and preview, please click on its title. The module will remember the last clicked media and if it was being previewed or edited. The media currently on preview will be highlighted with a greenish/yellow box as seen in your image above and its title will be white text against a black background. For other manipulations such as inserting or applying bulk actions (e.g. publish, lock, etc), please click on the thumbnail itself. 

Hope this answers your question.

Cheers.

hey @kongondo, that does the trick. Thank you! 
maybe it is an option to make the selection obsolete, when the field is set to 1 Image only, and select it directly on click of the thumb?
also, i would suggest to let the "add Media" Link be visible if the maximal image count is reached - and then simply replace the image instead of first having to select & delete & save the image /page to add another media. :) i know, its not THAT simple, but i guess this would be a big improvement!

great module, though!

Hi, that's great! I think we'll manage until then, but that will definitely help us in the long term. Thanks again

and one more question: i might be wrong, but shouldnt it be possible to have multilanguage-descriptions? 

To be honest, I haven't tried this.  The editor grabs what PW returns as the description. I am so ignorant when it comes to multi-lingual setups. Do files/images have multiple inputs for tags and descriptions in such cases?

i set it up by myself, to be honest, more like hacked it.
PW stores ML-Description as JSON {"0":"defaultlangtext","1022(aka LanguageID)":"anotherlangtext"}, and handles this internally. 

i added a textarea-field for each language in the "edit" template, and hide your default "description" textarea.  In the "save"-event in JS i simply create the json out of the contents of the different textareas and copy it over in the default-textarea before saving the $page. ;) Not the best way, but it's working.
you could also add different Fields like ("year", "artist", etc.) with this solution very quickly - by using other "ids" in the JSON.

the only problem i have right now is to populate the fields correctly, but i will try it by bypassing the language-hook today.

Hi @kongondo

I have a question about uploading images/files with umlauts in the filename. When I upload a image like this for example:

umlaut in imagenames.png

It converts the filename to this:

Bildschirmfoto 2016-10-13 um 14.08.13.png

Is it possible to change this, that it takes the filename as it is? I'm also confused why it adds underscores since the filename doesn't have empty spaces? My Customer needs this, because he has many photos with french/german filenames (which has umlauts). 

 

Greetings

I think this is a PW issue in general. I think there has been some discussion on it (but can't find it right now), so I am not sure why it was decided to not support utf8 filenames but that was before PW supportedUTF8 page names, so maybe it is time to revisit?

Hi @kongondo Great job with the module!

I am using Reno theme with Lightwire CK Editor theme. The MMImage and MMLink icons did not appear (see screenshot)

It works fine on the standard CK Editor theme.

Thx

      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
       
      Backend
