Hi @kongondo

For the moment I made some temporary additions to the MediaManagerActions.php file, so that it saves the title in all lang tabs. I added this lines to the code:

actionEdit()

foreach ($this->languages as $lang) {
		$p->title->setLanguageValue($lang, $sanitizer->text($media['title'])); //temporary by Nukro
}
//$p->title = $sanitizer->text($media['title']);

 

actionCreateMedia()

foreach ($this->languages as $lang) {
	$p->title->setLanguageValue($lang, $this->actionRenamer($title, $titleFormat)); //temporary by Nukro
}
//$p->title = $this->actionRenamer($title, $titleFormat);// @see @todo in actionRenamer()

 

I made this because my customer needs it urgently.

 

Greetings Nukro

Hi @Rudy. I think I have seen that error before in PW 3.X. I am not sure whether it is related to the PW version or if it is related to memory maxing out.

  • My guess is that your file is an image file? If so, then it is probably a large image and PW chokes on the thumb creation...due to memory issues.
  • Is the file added OK to your Media Manager library, i.e. it has a proper title, etc?
  • Were you uploading the single file or multiple files?

Please clarify these issues so that I can investigate further, thanks.

Thanks for the lovely module, kongondo!

Before I commit, could you tell me if updating an existing image will create a new asset that must be re-linked, or can I overwrite an existing image and have all the proper associations update automatically?

(Sorry if this was already addressed, I tried to search for the answer but my keywords (overwrite/replace/existing) each only came up with talk of upgrading the module itself.)

Hi @creativejay,

Thanks for your interest in Media Manager. Yes, that sort of update is supported. Change once, update everywhere  - no need to re-link; (but you would have to update any image variations yourself, of course). Please see point #5 in this post. Thanks.

Hi @kongondo

Does the $config->pagefileSecure setting work with your module together? I tried it and it looks like it always blocks the access for guest users also when page(media) is published.

 

From a blog post about pagefileSecure:

Quote

"Added support for secured pagefiles. Now unpublished or non-public pages may have their files (in /site/assets/files/...) protected from direct URL access. You need to add $config->pagefileSecure = true; to your /site/config.php in order to enable this capability. Files become secured when the page is not accessible to the 'guest' role. Beyond roles, this also includes securing files for Unpublished pages. "

 

I have the feeling that it blocks always because the media pages live under the admin where no "guest" user has access? Am I right? Would it be possible to write a hook or something to support the pagefileSecure together with the Media Manager pages/files?

Isn't that exactly what $config->pagefileSecure is meant to do? According to the blog post you reference, it says the 'guest' role will not be able to directly access those files. In addition, I see this from the docs:

$config->pagefileSecure bool When used, files in /site/assets/files/ will be protected with the same access as the page. Routines files through a passthrough script.

Protection will match the same access as the page. I probably don't get your use case but it seems you want to have your cake and eat it too :lol:^_^. Do you want to secure your Media Manager media from guests? If yes, then the config setting is doing its job. MM files are secured from the public (guests).

I am guessing though that you want certain users with certain roles to still have access, no? In that case all you have to do is create a role, say 'view-mm-files' and add it to user(s) you want to have access to the files in the frontend. Then, head over to the respective MM media templates i.e. (media-manager-audio, media-manager-document, media-manager-image and media-manager-video) and under their Access Tab under 'What roles can access pages using this template (and those inheriting from it)?', under the column 'View Pages' check the box for 'view-mm-files (see screen below)'. That's it. No hook needed :). Those users (when logged in, of course) should be able to view protected files.

For the backend (i.e. use/view Media Manager) we already have the permission 'media-manager'. Just add that to the role you've created for your users, e.g. the 'view-mm-files' (as well as going through the above process of giving that role view access in the respective templates )and they should be able to both access Media Manager and see the media.

@kongondo

Sorry I somehow get confused now. To my understanding the pagefileSecure works like this:

pagefileSecure ON

      (The news template for example, which holds the image/file field has view access for guest users activated)

  • Guest User can't access unpublished/trashed image/document file with the direct url to it. 
  • Guest User can access published image/document files with the direct url to it.

      

      (the media-manager templates which holds the image/file field hasn't view access for guest users)

  • Guest User can't access any image/document file that comes from the media manager with the direct url to it.

 

pagefileSecure OFF

Guest User can access any(published/unpublished/trashed) image/document file (also the ones from the media manager) with the direct url to it (also the ones from the media manager).

I somehow managed to delete the original post here when editing it :'(. Rather than rewrite it here, and since it was to feed into a write-up in the Media Manage docs, I might as well write it there. So, that's what I'll do. I'll find some time today and write that, er, write-up. I'll post a link here afterwards...

A quick btw, in ProcessWire, by default, no users except for logged-in Superusers can view unpublished pages.

Not true, any logged in user that has edit/view access can view a unpublished page not only superusers.

Add a page and upload a image. The image is in assets folder now and anyone can view that file in browser if you have the path. Even if you trash the page or unpublish page. This is where pageFilesecure comes in to avoid that.

So i think thats the problem when enabling pageFilesecure. The files suddenly cant be accessed even if published and should be accessible for a guest user cause the pages under admin are protected. Im not sure how MM works. But maybe giving guest access to MM templates in admin could solve that but not sure what the consequences are.

Quick response lest I accidentally delete my post again! :lol:

There's two methods to access MM media (when pagefileSecure is off):

1. Indirect access; via its FieldtypeMediaManager API: $media = $page->your_media_manager_field; Returns a MediaManagerArray object. This will work regardless of the 'guest' setting in an MM template

2. Direct access: using normal PW API to reference the MM pages by their templates : $pages->find("template=media-manager-image, limit=10"); This will not work for guests unless access is granted in the template 'media-manager-image'

Keeping this short since I will be writing about this later tonight in MM's docs.

Hi @kongondo

I have an suggestion about a new feature addition for replacing media. Would it be difficult to add a Message/Popup when the user is replacing media? At the moment it just replaces the media without a Warning Message or something like that. It would be a nice addition, since it is a risky move to let the users not know, that they have changed something, because they would replace media without noticing it. Also my customer become aware of this.

Greetings

Hi @Nukro,

Hmm, the default setting is to skip duplicate media. So, if media is being replaced the user must have set it so in the settings. A warning popup would just be an extra, to affirm what they've already set. I am not sure it will be easy/practical to implement since uploading is done via Ajax. I'll have a think. [Edit: should be easy enough as a checkbox to confirm before hitting upload :)]

By the way, I was not able to finish my write-up as promised in a previous post. I am determined to do this by the end of this week. Thanks for being patient with me.

Hi Kongo,

 Does the capability exist that allows the admin user to select from the media manager if the standard file/image field types are being used elsewhere?

So for clarification, I am using a file and image field type and would like the ability for the user to select from both the default or the media manager gallery. This will allow me to use the existing fields without losing any of the images that already live in the assets folder.

Edited by RyanJ
I updated this and removed my original issue as it was user error.

I'm interested in this module for a particular site but for it to be most useful I'd need to get all existing files into the manager first and then update fields to use it rather than the current file/images fields.

Is the module able to scan the contents of assets/files and copy them to wherever Media Manager accesses them from? Or does it do that automatically when you install it?

Hi @Tyssen,

Thanks for your interest in Media Manager.

No, not at the moment. The module creates its own fields for the 4 media types (audio, document, image and media). Each media item is a hidden page in the admin under respective media manager parent pages. I have been mulling adding this type of scanning functionality but haven't made a decision yet. Having said that, the module can currently scan /site/assets/MediaManager/uploads/

Please let me know if I can be of further help.

Media Manager version 010  (released 28/04/2017)

Happy to announce the latest release of Media Manager.

Changelog

  1. As per this request, added option to confirm duplicate media overwrite on upload. This, obviously, only works when the setting Duplicate Media is set to overwrite existing media with the one being uploaded. If you have that option selected, you will see a new option 'Always confirm when replacing/overwriting duplicate media' in the Duplicate Media sub-section. Tick that and save if you want to use this option. On the Uploads Tab you should now see a 'Confirm Overwrite' checkbox toward the top right of that page. Unless that checkbox is ticked, you will not see 'Start' upload buttons.
  2. Made various strings used in success/error messages in JavaScript translatable

This latest version is now available for download

Screens

'Always Confirm Overwrites' setting

media-manager-confirm-duplicate-overwrite-setting.thumb.png.2d5d0cb287cf89361a2353e7b4e4adec.png

Similar problem here, version 0.10

Empty file upload result

The first test images were uploaded without any problem. Then I tried to upload a bunch of images. Part of them were uploaded successfully, but not all.

Now:

1. i can't upload image files, also no small ones

2. files are not added to the library (but saved in the assets folder)

3. i'm trying to upload single files

Hi @Metaphora. Sorry about the problems you are experiencing. It's a bit difficult to debug this one. Can't tell whether the problem is because of your ProcessWire version, or the image type or the image size or your server environment.

  1. Are you able to test using the exact same images using ProcessWire 2.7? I am assuming you are using ProcessWire 3.x. 
  2. Are you testing locally or remotely? If the latter, do you notice any difference if you test locally?
  3. Server environment?

Image is uploaded to a mediamanager sub folder, also a thumbnail is generated.
Upload mode = default values
Upload without review.

That's strange. Point #3 contradicts point #1. Media is only uploaded to that sub-folder if in the setting After Uploading you have selected option 3 (i.e., to keep media in a temporary folder until they have been reviewed). If you have option 1 or 2, the media is uploaded directly to the Media Library. Please confirm the option you have selected in this setting, just in case you are looking at a different setting from the one I am referring to, thanks.

Edit: Please also confirm that you have the latest version (005) Jquery File Upload

      Happy new year, everybody 🥬
      I've been sitting on this Dashboard module I made for a client and finally came around to cleaning it up and releasing it to the wider public. This is how it looks.
      ProcessWire Dashboard

      If anyone is interested in trying this out, please go ahead! I'd love to get some feedback on it. If this proves useful and survives some real-world testing, I'll add this to the module directory.
      Download
      You can find the latest release on Github.
      Documentation
      Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options.
      Custom Panels
      My goal was to make it really simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people.
       Disclaimer
      This is a pre-release version. Please treat it as such — don't install it on production sites. Just making sure 🍇
      Roadmap
      These are the things I'm looking to implement myself at some point. The wishlist is a lot longer, but those are the 80/20 items that I probably won't regret spending time on.
      Improve documentation & add examples ⚙️ Panel types Google Analytics ⚙️ Add new page  🔥 Drafts 🔥 At a glance / Page counter 404s  Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel panel groups with heading and spacing between ✅ panel wrappers as grid item (e.g. stacked notices) ✅ Admin themes support AdminThemeReno and AdminThemeDefault ✅ Shortcuts panel add a table layout with icon, title & summary ✅ Chart panel add default styles for common chart types ✅ load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array) Collection panel support image columns ✅ add buttons: view all & add new ✅

      ---- 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 (open spoiler):
      (Please note: these screenshots are from an early development state of SnipWire. To see actual screens please have a look at later posts below!)

      This module is inspired by and similar to the Template Stubs module. The author of that module has not been active in the PW community for several years now and parts of the code for that module didn't make sense to me, so I decided to create my own module. Auto Template Stubs has only been tested with PhpStorm because that is the IDE that I use.
      Auto Template Stubs
      Automatically creates stub files for templates when fields or fieldgroups are saved.
      Stub files are useful if you are using an IDE (e.g. PhpStorm) that provides code assistance - the stub files let the IDE know what fields exist in each template and what data type each field returns. Depending on your IDE's features you get benefits such as code completion for field names as you type, type inference, inspection, documentation, etc.
      Installation
      Install the Auto Template Stubs module.
      Configuration
      You can change the class name prefix setting in the module config if you like. It's good to use a class name prefix because it reduces the chance that the class name will clash with an existing class name.
      The directory path used to store the stub files is configurable.
      There is a checkbox to manually trigger the regeneration of all stub files if needed.
      Usage
      Add a line near the top of each of your template files to tell your IDE what stub class name to associate with the $page variable within the template file. For example, with the default class name prefix you would add the following line at the top of the home.php template file:
      /** @var tpl_home $page */ Now enjoy code completion, etc, in your IDE.

      Adding data types for non-core Fieldtype modules
      The module includes the data types returned by all the core Fieldtype modules. If you want to add data types returned by one or more non-core Fieldtype modules then you can hook the AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes() method. For example, in /site/ready.php:
      // Add data types for some non-core Fieldtype modules $wire->addHookAfter('AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes', function(HookEvent $event) { $extra_types = [ 'FieldtypeDecimal' => 'string', 'FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker' => 'LeafletMapMarker', 'FieldtypeRepeaterMatrix' => 'RepeaterMatrixPageArray', 'FieldtypeTable' => 'TableRows', ]; $event->return = $event->return + $extra_types; }); Credits
      Inspired by and much credit to the Template Stubs module by mindplay.dk.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.60
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      ⚠️ NOTICE: 1.5.60 is an important security patch-release for an XSS vulnerability discovered by @phlp. It's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that all Jumplinks users update to the latest version as soon as possible.
      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! 🙂
