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..

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

@spacemonkey95

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.

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

Orkun

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?

      Hello community!

      I want to share a new module I've been working on that I think could be a big boost for multi-language ProcessWire sites.

      Some background, I was looking for a way for our company website to be efficiently translated as working with human translators was pretty laborious and a lack of updating content created a divergence between languages. I, and several other devs here, have talked about translation integrations and have recognized the power that DeepL has. DeepL is an AI deep learning powered service that delivers translation quality beyond any automated service available. After access to the API was opened up to the US, I built Fluency, a DeepL translation integration for ProcessWire.
      Fluency brings automated translation to every multi-language field in the admin, and also provides a translation tool allowing the user to translate their text to any language without it being inside a template's field. With Fluency you can:
      Translate any plain textarea or text input Translate any CKEditor content (yes, with markup) Translate page names for fully localized URLs on every page Translate your in-template translation function wrapped strings Translate modules Fluency is free, and now so is DeepL
      Since this module was first built DeepL has introduced free Developer accounts that allow anyone to start using Fluency at zero cost and beginning with the version 0.3.0 release Fluency now supports free DeepL accounts. As of June 2021 DeepL supports translation to 26 languages and continues to offer more!
      Installation and usage is completely plug and play. Whether you're building a new multi-language site, need to update a site to multi-language, or simply want to stop manually translating a site and make any language a one-click deal, it could not be easier to do it. Fluency works by having you match the languages configured in ProcessWIre to DeepL's. You can have your site translating to any or all of the languages DeepL translates to in minutes (quite literally).
      Let's break out the screenshots...
      When the default language tab is shown, a message is displayed to let users know that translation is available. Clicking on each tab shows a link that says "Translate from English". Clicking it shows an animated overlay with the word "Translating..." cycling through each language and a light gradient shift. Have a CKEditor field? All good. Fluency will translated it and use DeepL's ability to translate text within HTML tags. CKEditor fields can be translated as easily and accurately as text/textarea fields.

      Repeaters and AJAX created fields also have translation enabled thanks to a JavaScript MutationObserver that searches for multi-language fields and adds translation as they're inserted into the DOM. If there's a multi-language field on the page, it will have translation added.

      Same goes for image description fields. Multi-language SEO friendly images are good to go.

      Creating a new page from one of your templates? Translate your title, and also translate your page name for native language URLs. (Not available for Russian, Chinese, or Japanese languages due to URL limitations). These can be changed in the "Settings" tab for any page as well so whether you're translating new pages or existing pages, you control the URLs everywhere.

      Language configuration pages are no different. Translate the names of your languages and search for both Site Translation Files (including all of your modules)

      Translate all of the static text in your templates as well. Notice that the placeholders are retained. DeepL is pretty good at recognizing and keeping non-translatable strings like that. If it is changed, it's easy to fix manually.

      Fluency adds a "Translate" item to the CMS header. When clicked this opens up a modal with a full translation tool that lets the user translate any language to any language. No need to leave the admin if you need to translate content from a secondary language back to the default ProcessWire language. There is also a button to get the current API usage statistics. DeepL account owners can set billing limitations via character count to control costs. This may help larger sites or sites being retrofitted keep an eye on their usage. Fluency can be used by users having roles given the fluency-translate permission.

      It couldn't be easier to add Fluency to your new or existing website. Simply add your API key and you're shown what languages are currently available for translation from/to as provided by DeepL. This list and all configuration options are taken live from the API so when DeepL releases new languages you can add them to your site without any work. No module updates, just an easy configuration. Just match the language you configured in ProcessWire to the DeepL language you want it to be associated with and you're done. Fluency also allows you to create a list of words/phrases that will not be translated which can prevent items such as brands and company names from being translated when they shouldn't

       
      Limitations:
      No "translate page" - Translating multiple fields can be done by clicking multiple translation links on multiple fields at once but engineering a "one click page translate" is not feasible from a user experience standpoint. The time it takes to translate one field can be a second or two, but cumulatively that may take much longer (CKEditor fields are slower than plain text fields). There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't currently on the roadmap. No "translate site" - Same thing goes for translating an entire website at once. It would be great, but it would be a very intense process and take a very (very) long time. There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't on the roadmap. No current support for Inline CKEditor fields - Handling for CKEditor on-demand hasn't been implemented yet, this is planned for a future release though and can be done. I just forgot about it because I've never really used that feature personally.. Alpha release - This module is in alpha. Releases should be stable and usable, but there may be edge case issues. Test the module thoroughly and please report any bugs via a Github issue on the repository or respond here. Please note that the browser plugin for Grammarly conflicts with Fluency (as it does with many web applications). To address this issue it is recommended that you disable Grammarly when using Fluency, or open the admin to edit pages in a private window where Grammarly may not be loaded. This is an issue that may not have a resolution as creating a workaround may not be possible. If you have insight as to how this may be solved please visit the Github page and file a bugfix ticket.
      Requirements:
      ProcessWire  3.0+ UIKit Admin Theme That's Fluency in a nutshell. A core effort in this module is to create it so that there is nothing DeepL related hard-coded in that would require updating it when DeepL offers new languages. I would like this to be a future-friendly module that doesn't require developer work to keep it up-to-date.
      The Module Is Free
      This is my first real module and I want to give it back to the community as thanks. This is the best CMS I've worked with (thank you Ryan & contributors) and a great community (thank you dear reader).
      DeepL Developer Accounts
      In addition to paid Pro Developer accounts, DeepL now offers no-cost free accounts. Now all ProcessWire developers and users can use Fluency at no cost.
      Learn more about free and paid accounts by visiting the DeepL website. Sign up for a Developer account, get an API key, and start using Fluency today.

      (once again I was surprised to see a work of mine pop up in the newsletter, this time without even listing the module on PW modules website 😅. Thx @teppo !)
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      This is a simple module I made so a client could quickly grab a QR Code of the page's url in the admin.
      There's not much to it for now, but if need be you can output anything using a hook:
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) You can also output the QR code on your front-end by calling the field:
      echo $page->qr_code_field; The module uses the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase. When looking for a way to generate a QR Code in PW I came across @ryan's integration in his TFA module. I'm not very familiar with fieldtype/inputfield module development so I blindly followed @bernhard (great) tutorial and his BaseFieldtypeRuntime. At some point I'll take a deeper look to make a module on my own.
      Some ideas for improvements :
      add the ability to choose what to ouput : page's url / editUrl / file(s) / image(s) / ... allow to output multiple QR codes ?

      Inspired by @bernhard's excellent work on the new customisable LESS CSS getting rolled into the core soon, I thought I would offer up the module for beta testing, if it is of interest to anyone.

      It takes a different approach to admin styling, basically using the Cascade part of CSS to over-ride default UiKit values.
      Values are stored in ModuleConfig Module creates a separate AdminThemeTweaker Folder at root, so it can link to AdminThemeTweaker.php as CSS AdminThemeTweaker.php reads the module values, constructs the CSS variables then includes the CSS framework Can be switched on and off with a click. Uninstall removes everything, thanks to bernhard's wonderful remove dir & contents function.
      It won't touch your core. It won't care if stuff is upgraded. You won't need to compile anything and you don't need to touch CSS unless you want to.

      It won't do much at all apart from read some values from your module config, work out the right CSS variables to use (auto contrast based on selected backgrounds) and throw it on your screen.
      You can configure a lot of stuff, leave it as it comes (dark and curvy), change two main colors (background and content background) or delve deep to configure custom margins, height of mastheads, and all manner of silly stuff I never use.

      Have been developing it for somewhere around 2 years now. It has been (and will continue to be) constantly tweaked over that time, as I click on something and find something else to do.
      That said, it is pretty solid and has been in constant use as my sole Admin styling option for all of those 2 years.

      If nothing else, it would be great if it can provide any assistance to @bernhard or other contributor's who may be looking to solve some of the quirkier UiKit behavior.
      Has (in my opinion) more robust and predictable handling of hidden Inputfields, data-colwidths and showIf wrappers.
      I am very keen to help out with that stuff in any way I can, though LESS (and any css frameworks/tools basically) are not my go.
      I love CSS variables and banging-rocks-together, no-dependency CSS you can write with notepad.

      I see old posts saying that repeaters are not the way to go in Custom Process Modules. If that is the case, when using forms (as I am trying to do) how would one tackle things like repeat contact fields where there can be multiple requirements for contact details with different parameters? (Like point of contact, director, etc) or even telephone numbers that have different uses?
      Just for background I am creating a process module that allows me to create types of financial applications in the admin area (no need to publish any of this, pure admin) that require a lot of personal or company information.
      Maybe I am thinking about this incorrectly?
