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?

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?

      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

      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.
      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?
