You mean mark deleted all + sorting buttons?

The first one alone seems superfluous as there is already a way to do it, even if it's not that obvious (double click on trash icon). But with sorting buttons it makes more sense. So you give me permission to use your module's code?

I've already thought of a filter box. Here's a screencap of its current state but it's still in an early stage. It's capable of searching image names, descriptions (multilanguage) and tags, and multiple strings at once (separated by spaces).

Filtering worked fine only until name/tag/description were unchanged because filter targets were added on load. I solved this by clicking or focusing on the filter box re-adds all the filter targets. In fact all the filters are added only on the first click so if you don't use the filter it won't add too much overhead.

! This sounds very good ! - Multilanguage and Descriptions and Tags and multiple Searchphrases - !

Man, you are awesome! ^-^  

I have seen some third party JS / jQuery scripts that do sorting and filtering, but the good ones wasn't OpenSource, and / or to bloated. Your solution sounds very good.

There are one thing I thought of while playing with that: would it be possible to filter for portrait and landscape oriented images? - or for the smallest / highest height or width?

And ahm, if you need beta tester, just call. :)

Nothing extraordinary here :) I will try to polish things a bit today and upload a new version. There are a few additions I have in mind to the filter but it's main feature should work fine.

Landscape/portrait and size filters could go to the sorting buttons bernhard suggested, once I get to that.

v012 is uploaded with the new filterbox feature. I get the onleave confirmation message after using the field and tryng to leave the page, if anyone knows an easy way to solve this that would be welcomed.

Another cosmetic fix for the filterbox: show only if there are at least 2 items to filter. It's evaluated dynamically on uploading images, so if the field is empty or contains only one image it will be hidden.


Now it's "close to perfect" according to my set of standards :)

@tpr: I have one wish and an observation to share. :)

My wish is: "Please can we have in AdminReno-CompactHeader-view the toggle icon for the sidebar?" If one do not use autohide for the sidebar it currently is missing with the compact header view.


For me, on Windows 7 with Firefox, I do not have a sticky header with the default Admintheme.

The mastheads position is set to relative, I think it must be fixed. The classes of the html element are

<html class="aos_fixScrollbarJump aos_fileFieldToolbar aos_filterbox aos_stickyHeader aos_PagePreviewLink" lang="en">

Do you need more Infos?

I'll check the fixed pos, thanks.

You can toggle the sidebar with the right-left arrows in the Reno theme, isn't that suffice? I agree that it's not very obvious.

Filterbox everywhere!

A major update to the filterbox: now available for file fields too. This was my original intention and now it's real :)

Admin theme default sticky header is also fixed. I switched to array an of classes instead simple string concat but forgot to update the default admin theme part.

Here is perhaps one of the last additions to filterbox - datalist:


Only image name or file name is displayed because using value+text didn't work in Firefox. Anyway, it can be a handy helper as it is.

Well, for filtering items :) E.g if you have many images or documents uploaded and you would like to find a specific one. Or if you go to the Language Translator, there can be many translation files and it can be hard finding the one you need without filtering.

Filtering for filenames with images will / is be one of the most used functions of all for me. :)

If you have done the images your self and use a naming convention, this is the fasted way to find specific images / images groups out of hundreds. Also, with an own naming convention, (and knowing the images), you don't need to tag the images. :lol:

Thanks @tpr!

@tpr, maybe a new feature request:

In Editpage mode, a HotKey for saving: ctrl+s

But one that alltimes work, regardless if one are on the edit page, in a CKeditor field or another Editorfield. I know that there is a module from Soma with AdminHotkeys, but IIRR, it doesn't work when editing in a CKEditor field. But most of all, I would need it there!

Thanks! Glad to hear you can make use of it.

Just tried the ctrl-s combo and I got it working. Here is a snippet I have atm if you can't wait:

$(document).ready(function () {

    var saveButton = $('#submit_save');

    CKEDITOR.on('instanceReady', function (evt) {

        var editor = evt.editor;

        editor.document.on('keydown', function (e) {

            if (e.data.getKeystroke() == CKEDITOR.CTRL + 83) {


                return false;

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.

      File Manager for ProcessWire is a module to manager files and folders from the CMS backend. It supports creating, deleting, renaming, packing, unpacking, uploading, downloading and editing of files and folders. The integrated code editor ACE supports highlighting of all common programming languages.

      This module is probably the most powerful module. You might destroy your processwire installation if you don't exactly know what you doing. Be careful and use it at your own risk!

      This module implements the website live chat service from tawk.to. Actually the module doesn't have to do much. It just need to inserted a few lines of JavaScript just before the closing body tag </body> on each side. However, the module offers additional options to display the widget only on certain pages.

      Session Viewer is a module for ProcessWire to list session files and display session data. This module is helpful to display the session data of a specific session or to kick out a logged in user by simply delete his session file. After installation the module is available in the Setup menu.

      The following conditions must be met for the module to work properly:
      Session files
      Session data must be stored in session files, which is the default way in ProcessWire. Sessions stored in the database are not supported by this module. The path to the directory where the session files are stored must be declared in the ProcessWire configuration which is by default: site/assets/sessions.
      Serialize handler
      In order to transform session data easier back to a PHP array, the session data is stored serialized. PHP offers a way to declare a custom serialize handler. This module supports only the default serialize handlers: php, php_binary and php_serialize. WDDX was dropped in PHP 7.4.0 and is therefore not supported by this module as well as any other custom serialize handler. Which serialize handler is actually used you can find out in the module configuration which is available under Modules=>Configure=>SessionViewer.

      Session data
      The session data can be displayed in two different ways. PHP's default output for arrays print_r() or by default for this module nice_r() offered on github: https://github.com/uuf6429/nice_r. There is a setting in the module configuration if someone prefers print_r(). Apart from the better handling and overview of the folded session data the output of nice_r() looks indeed nicer.

      Repeater Easy Sort
      Adds a compact "easy-sort" mode to Repeater and Repeater Matrix, making those fields easier to sort when there are a large number of items.
      The module also enhances Repeater Matrix by allowing a colour to be set for each matrix type. This colour is used in the item headers and in the "add new" links, to help visually distinguish different matrix types in the inputfield.
      A Repeater field

      A Repeater Matrix field with custom header colours

      Easy-sort mode
      Each Repeater/Matrix item gets an double-arrow icon in the item header. Click this icon to enter easy-sort mode.
      While in easy-sort mode:
      The items will reduce in width so that more items can be shown on the screen at once. The minimum width is configurable in the field settings. Any items that were in an open state are collapsed, but when you exit easy-sort mode the previously open items will be reopened. You can drag an item left/right/up/down to sort it within the items. The item that you clicked the icon for is shown with a black background. This makes it easier to find the item you want to move in easy-sort mode. You can click an item header to open the item. An "Exit easy-sort mode" button appears at the bottom of the inputfield. Configuration
      In the field settings for Repeater and Repeater Matrix fields you can define a minimum width in pixels for items in easy-sort mode. While in easy-sort mode the items will be sized to neatly fill the available width on any screen size but will never be narrower than the width you set here.
      In the field settings for Repeater Matrix you can define a custom header colour for each matrix type using an HTML "color" type input. The default colour for this type of input is black, so when black is selected in the input it means that no custom colour will be applied to the header.
      The easy-sort mode is only possible on Repeater/Matrix fields that do not use the "item depth" option.
