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

Files are uploaded to ..site/assets/MediaManager/jqfu/.files_no_show
Thumbnails are generated in ..site/assets/MediaManager/jqfu/.files_no_showthumbnails
This folder is empty: ..site/assets/MediaManager/uploads

After Uploading: Add uploads ... not publish (= option 2)

jQueryFileUpload: 0.0.5

With these settings, the files should only be temporarily uploaded to /site/assets/MediaManager/jqfu/.files_no_show. They are then deleted once they have been copied to the Media Manager Library. The thumbnails also get deleted in that process.  However, if you upload very large images (dimensions or size), the process may time out. In that case you will get the error you are getting (Empty file upload result) . That means the server did not send back a success message in response to the ajax request sent by Jquery File Upload. If you check your browser dev tools as per the image below (under either Preview or Response tab), you should see a similar error. Is this the case for you?

"Solved" the problem.

1. Deleted all files in site/assets/MediaManager/jqfu/.files_no_show and thumbnails.

2. Upload a single image.

3. Image is successfully added.

4. Publish image.

5. No image in ..site/assets/MediaManager/jqfu/.files_no_show

As I said, everything was working fine until I tried to upload about 40 files at the same time.
This upload failed after 20 images or so (Empty file upload result).
After this I couldn't upload any file.

So I guess, the problem is caused by the files left behind in jqfu/.files_no_show.

Glad you got it sorted. However, I feel there's still something funky going on. You should still be able to do bulk uploads. OK, maybe not 40 at a time, but 20 or so images. There's also a 'Scan' function if that suits you better.

But let's say, an upload fails because of a memory issues ... shouldn't the  files in ..site/assets/MediaManager/jqfu/.files_no_show be automatically deleted?

In that case, technically, the upload has not failed. Files have been uploaded to the temporary folder/../jqfu/.files_no_show. In there, a number of validation checks take place to ensure what is uploaded is valid. Some checks are done by (1) JQFU, others by  (2) ProcessWire's WireUpload and finally by (3) Media Manager. If a file passes validation, it is copied over to the library. Media Manager is responsible for deleting copies of uploaded media in the temporary folder. Since the process times out before reaching step #3, the uploaded media remain in the temporary folder, do not make it to the library, hence MM does not delete the uploaded originals in the temporary folder.

I've bought Media Manager before a few days and have a question: how can I add files to the media library via the api and how can I add media manager assets to a media manager field via the api? I'm importing a large Wordpress page and have to add a lot of files... 

Thank you, regards

Hi @SebastianP,

Thanks for your purchase.

There is no external API to do this. You can have a look at the file MediaManagerActions.php  to see how we do it internally, specifically the methods actionInsert() (adding media to a Media Manager field on a page) and actionCreateMedia() (for creating media from uploaded files).  What is your import process? Do you have all the files available in some directory? Are you not able to import them using Media Manager upload feature?

Thanks for your answer! Meanwhile I've imported the files manually ("new Page()... ") - the hint to the "actionInsert()"-method helps me with the rest:-) 

Are you not able to import them using Media Manager upload feature?

No - I want to rebuilt the existing wordpress posts (text, text with image, galleries and so on) with repeater items; so I must tag the files during the import with their ID from the wp_posts table.

Hi @kongondo,

I've been getting to know this module and it's really impressive the features you've worked in and all the settings that can be customised.

Just wondering about the behaviour of the MM inputfield though - currently it reloads the whole of Page Edit with each addition to the field, which is not so good if the user has made some edits to other fields but not yet saved the page. They are faced with the option of accepting the reload which would lose the other field edits, or cancelling the reload in which case their media selection is not added.

Maybe you could look at how the PageTable inputfield reloads itself via AJAX when a change is made, and do something similar with the MM inputfield?

Happy to announce the latest release of Media Manager.


  1. Fixed bug that caused required Media Manager fields to still be labelled as 'missing required value' even when they were populated.

Hi @onjegolders,

Thanks for your purchase.

Apologies about the issues you are having with the module.

I'm thinking maybe the module folder is corrupted?

Probably. Please try and re-install. Check for any missing files using the Network Tab. The error you see in the console is a pesky one that I've never been able to decipher/get to the root of. For now, we live with it; it doesn't affect anything.

I am having trouble with images not being shown to other users that dont have  superuser role. All images were uploaded by superuser with id 41. 

I added media-manager permissions to the role in question, and then the role to the user, is this enough? Also the options of media manager are configured to show all user images.

Hi @elabx. No, it is not. You also need to set up permissions at the template level. This is described here.

Let me know if this helps.

Oh thanks! Another brilliant example of RTFM.

I am looking for a clean way to remove the "Media Manager" pages from the top search in the admin for a certain user role. When searching, these pages are being returned and confusing the user that they can edit them instead of using the Media Manager tool. Attached is an image to help describe what I mean. Make note of the page types "Media Manager: ect"

I was thinking a hook using ProcessPageSearch?

Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.

I have a question about supported file formats -

I have added 'svg' to valid image file extensions, and this works when using the 'Scan' method to upload files. When I try the JqueryFileUploader, I get an error saying ' Filetype not allowed'


Is there any other configuration I need to change to allow svg files to be uploaded as images?

      (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?

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no Javascript or image required.
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode.

      Detailed records
      View mode "Detailed records" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records.

      Cached visitor records
      View modes other than "Detailed records" are cached visitor counts which will be collected on a daily basis from the detailed records. This procedure ensures a faster display even with a large number of data records. Another advantage is that the detailed records can be deleted while the cache remains. The cache can be updated manually or automatically in a specified time period. Multiple visits from the same IP address on the same day are counted as a single visitor.

      Upgrade from older versions
      Cached visitor counts is new in version 1.0.8. If you just upgraded from an older version you might expire a delay or even an error 500 if you display cached visitor counts. The reason for this is that the cache has to be created from the records. This can take longer if your database contains many records. Sometimes it might hit the maximally execution time. Don't worry about that and keep reloading the page until the cache is completely created.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).

      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
