Downgraded my site to 2.8.35 and still experienced the issue. A note, the MediaManager field is called inside a repeater, if that makes any different.

Update: Tested MediaManager on its own (without repeater) and the modal window works fine.

@Rudy. Sorry, my bad. ProcessWire 2.8 and 3.x are one and the same thing, save for namespacing. What I meant was please test in any PW 2.5 up to 2.7.  Oops, didn't take note that you were in a repeater. There have been other bugs reported about MM in repeaters in PW 3.x. So, I will file this under that, but just in case, if you can, please test in a PW pre-2.8 and let me know, just to be sure it's not an environment issue.

I know, images differ from the other media types a little bit.

@Michael van Laar...sorry if I sounded a little bit blunt...Just wading through a ton of 'todos' :)...so short on time...Let's hear if there are other ideas on how this could be achieved...

The issue is with repeater's ajax dynamic loading. It works fine when ajax option is turned off. If you can find the hook that gets called after the add new repeater child is clicked, you can probably get it to initialize the magnific call after that click.

I will leave it for now since there is a workaround. I know you've got many things on your checklist ;-)

Thx

This function here listens for repeater's events and initialize jQuery Magnific inside a repeater. Tested on my site only though. EDIT: Also need to check if repeater is being used or not.

// magnific
$(document).ready(function(){

	// If repeater field 
	if ( $('.InputfieldRepeaterAddItem').length ) {
		//console.log('Repeater is being used');
		$(document).on('click opened openReady repeateradd', function(){
			initMagnificPopup();
		});
	} else {
		//console.log('Repeater is NOT being used');
		initMagnificPopup();
	}

});//end jquery

// Initialize Magnific
function initMagnificPopup() {
	$('a.add_media').magnificPopup({
		type:'iframe',
		callbacks: {
			close: function() {
			// will fire when popup is closed
				window.location.reload(true);// force parent page refresh on modal close
			}
		}

	});
}

Hiya, I'm looking forward to seeing the newest version of Media Manager with the upload directly from CKEditor feature. 

Having used the module on my site for a few weeks, it's becoming clear that with the number of images I'm using (it's a document library so there are hundreds and hundreds already), it's becoming unmanageable to use Media Manager, even with the ability to filter by tags. There are a number of different people using the system so it's chaos at the moment.

With this in mind, would it be possible to add the ability to create folders for various groups of images? That way people could upload to a folder specific to their document. Obviously they would still be able to filter globally by tags or titles or whatever, but it would make the starting point so much easier to manage.

Hi @spacemonkey95,

I am not sure I follow. Tags are specifically what you need to group media. Creating subfolders (aka sub-media pages) would essentially mean a re-write of the module (unless am not thinking this through clearly). I also don't understand what you mean by starting point? Maybe if you could (graphically, if possible) explain your work flow? Thanks.

On the other hand, if what you need is the ability for users to be able to only see the media they uploaded, that I can add easily (in fact I have already tested and it works fine). Basically we would use 'created_users_id' to filter out other users' media. I could add this to the upcoming settings.

Hi @kongondo

I wanted to ask if its possible to have this list view change for the media manager fields also for the media manager process page? My Customer wants to see the filename of every image/file without clicking on it.

And have you thought about integrating this fixed filters(like Lister Pro) for the media manager? My customer needs them since it's a big company with many workers, and it would be just time consuming to build the filters every time when the user is logged in.

1. List view: Yes, that's on my todo list right here

2. I need to dispense with version 7 first. Then I will look into if/how I can integrate custom filters

Hey kongodo!
I still don't get how the form for the variation-description is rendered..

i need to implement a multilanguage-solution, like i did for the original image...:

 

$languages = $this->wire('languages');
            $this->wire('user')->language = $languages->get("default");
                        foreach($languages as $lang) {
            $this->wire('user')->language = $lang;
                $this->wire('user')->language = $languages->get($lang->id);
                            $out .= '<label for="media_description_'.$lang->id . $mediaID . '">' .$lang->title . '</label>';
                            $out .= '<textarea class="lang" id="media_description_'.$lang->id . $mediaID . '" name="media_description_'.$lang->id.'">' . $m->description . '</textarea>';
            }
            

 

but i have no clue...

haha. WTF. ok! :) 

 for now i simply copy-from-image-media  and overwrite the description for variations on save, which works... but it would be REALLY great, to have native multilanguage-support in the image-description (like it is in the core), i think. maybe, its something for the roadmap.

beside that, it's a pretty solid work!

Hi @kongondo

Could you say a period when you release the version 7 of the media manager? My Customer urges me, that he wants to start uploading images. I think it shouldn't be a problem to update the module when there are uploaded images?  

Greetings Orkun

@vanderbreye. Of course :). Remember this is ProcessWire..., the ProcessWire.

// This will search even in image variations
$media = $pages->find("template=media-manager-image, media_manager_image.description%=blue");
#echo count($media);
// first() in our case is always the main image/media.
foreach ($media as $m) echo $m->title . ': ' . $m->media_manager_image->first()->description . '<br>';

@kongondo, not sure if this has been requested in the past...

It would be nice to be able to edit the title, description and tags once media have been selected. 

Thx

Rudy, am totally clueless about what you mean :). Please clarify. Selected where? In Inputfield/FieldtypeMediaManager?

Media Manager version 007  (released (23/11/2016))

Happy to announce the latest release of Media Manager. Download via your purchase link.

Changelog

  1. Multi-tagging: Added to the list of actions to apply to selected media. Tick the checkbox to replace rather than append to existing tags. 'Un-tagging' also available in the list of actions.
  2. Uploading now possible when in CKEditor context.
  3. Settings moved to own menu item.
  4. New settings added: Media title format; Handling duplicate media (all 4 media types); Display current users' media only; Media sorting + sort order
  5. Replace/Rename/Skip Duplicate media: When new media loaded and a duplicate is found in the library, this setting tells MM what to do. If using 'Replace' mode, existing tags and descriptions are preserved. There is also a setting to preserve or delete existing image media variations. @note: Might need a couple of refreshes (browser and/or MM before replacement media is shown).
  6. Media Sorting: Set via settings (@see #4).
  7. Live Media Sorting: In your Media Manager Library, select sort criteria (dropdown select) and sort order (checkbox). These override the sort settings in 'Settings' (@see #3).
  8. List and Grid View: Click on respective icons to switch to list versus grid view. In list-view, the current media (displayed on the right pane) remains in view as you scroll the page. @note: currently there is a bug where your media image will remain fixed at the top of the window when you scroll back up in cases where it is taller than your monitor. Please see this post.
  9. Insert Link and Insert Image: Streamlined insert link and insert image in CKEditor. MMLink and MMImage plugins are now obsolete! Go ahead and delete them please. Instead, we use and extend ProcessWire's inbuilt PWImage and PWLink. 
  10. Code refactoring, bug fixes, CSS fixes.

@note:

As previously announced, this version is still not yet certified as compatible with ProcessWire 2.8 and 3.X. This means the repeater matrix bugs will still be present. Next version of MM will be compatible with these versions of PW.

Thank you for the great update, kongondo. I will try the new version out very soon.

I use Media Manager extensively on the project I'm currently working on and trying to do - let's call it - context-based image descriptions.

I have many images that will be displayed on different product pages in a slideshow. So the same image/file will be used in different contexts and need a different description depending on the page.

The reason is that multiple products are shown on the same image.

  • a) The obvious solution would be uploading the image multiple times as needed and give them different descriptions, but I really don't like this solution since a visitor would have to download more data than needed. That's not really optimized since the project already uses responsive images and lazy loading etc. yadda yadda ;-).
     
  • b) I thought about using a repeater, but I can't use one since the site is already running on ProcessWire 3.0 and Media Manager isn't working in Processwire 3.0 repeater fields. If there would be a quick fix, I'll bet Francis would have included the fix in the latest update.
     
  • c) Maybe there is another way. Any suggestions?


Thank you so much.

Regards

How do I have to update the Media Manager? Just overwrite the whole folder with the new one? It shouldn't affect any media manager fields that are assigned to templates or other related stuff with the media manager? Do I have to pay attention to some steps before replacing the old module folder with the new one? I just want to be careful and I dont want to break anything. :)

      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 ?
    • By Chris Bennett
      https://github.com/chrisbennett-Bene/AdminThemeTweaker
      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?
