Croppable Image 3

Recommended Posts

Croppable Image 3 (beta)

for PW 3.0.20+

Module Version 1.1.15

Sponsored by http://dreikon.de/, many thanks Timo & Niko!

You can get it in the modules directory!

Please refer to the readme on github for instructions.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Updating from prior versions:

 

Updating from Croppable Image 3 with versions prior to 1.1.7, please do this as a one time step:

In the PW Admin, go to side -> modules -> new, use "install via ClassName" and use CroppableImage3 for the Module Class Name. This will update your existing CroppableImage3 module sub directory, even if it is called a new install. After that, the module will be recogniced by the PW updater module, what makes it a lot easier on further updates.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

For updating from the legacy Thumbnail / CropImage to CroppableImage3 read on here.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Sticking with a PW legacy 2.8.20+ Version (none namespaced)? - I have created a CroppableImage2 snapshot, which you can get from the github repo branch: CroppableImage2

This looks great @horst - just one initial request - can we lose the "Wow that looks great" button label and make it simply "Continue" or "Accept" or something similar. And maybe the "Not happy, crop again" link should be a button with "Redo Crop" ?

PS I know these labels are a legacy of the original thumbnails module, but they do sound a little weird to me.

I'm thinking about to implement a "show historical label texts" module config checkbox. Antti, would this help to get over this a bit faster?

(Some customers really liked that. "Oh, thats so positive! Fine.") :)

I actually like when software is not so serious. And I think most people do. Or at least it is not stop for success, take a look at MailChimp and Slack for example. 

@horst the legacy labels setting would make my day!

Wow - now I feel so boring and serious :)

Seriously (ha ha) though, I think there is a great place for fun elements in software, but I think it's important who it's aimed at and whether they'll see it as fun or just confusing - "you gotta keep it smart people" (dorky TV quote there)!

Getting OT, but why do all phone companies around the world seem to use cute animals in their advertising? I don't see the fun because I can't see the connection - the fun has to be relevant.

Yeah, now I'm thinking about to setup a radio or select with something like:

   "I am serious"

   "I like it funny"

   "I'm brave, surprise me"

 

@apeisa: Yes, that was exactly what one customer said to me a month ago: "Oh, thats nice and not so serious. I like it. It is the same way like Mailchimp do."

Version 0.9.12

I added a single centralized translation file. It combines all text strings of all module and dependency files. This way it should be easier or lesser work to translate it. (<- hint @ceberlin, @Manfred62, @yellowled :))

@apeisa: Also the legacy and serious text selection is included. (legacy is default!)

Just kidding :) I actually don't mind it at all now that the crop again option is a button rather than a text link.

Haha! Yep, and also, if you or your customer are more from the serious side, it is only a selection and a save click to change it. :)

Hi Horst,

it's great to see CoppableImage again in PW3!
For me as Superuser all is fine, but if I login with another role (with right "page-edit-image") the modal crop-window switches to the pagetree-view.

Hmmm after installing the new Version I have a problem:

When clicking on "Wow that looks great / Accept" the modal window does not close anymore. It does not close, when I click on the "X" in the upper right corner either.

Plus, there are a few Javascript errors:

InputfieldCroppableImage3.js:31 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'width' of undefined

I testet in on my Mac with Chrome and Firefox. Same behaviour in both browsers.

Here it is working without errors. Also, the relevant part for that hasn't changed between the last versions.

Maybe browser cache issue, or, if that doesn't help. Delete all files and folders under site/modules/CroppableImage3/ ... and copy a fresh one new Version into it, to make sure to have all the latest versions?

I can switch force and back between the two modal windows multiple times, and I also can close it via the buttons and the X.

I will test this and come back here, when done.

Same behave here, sorry.

What I encountered in short, is: I get different color for the modal windows title bar (?), and it doesn't open the processPage. So, it is an access issue. I need to investigate further. ...

Somehow I had lost the permission settings during the rewrite. Also there were a chance for some interfere with the permission of the older Croppable module.

Now I have fixed it with the update to version 0.9.14

But it will not update / correct itself, :(

To get rid of the bug, everyone who has installed a version lesser than 0.9.14 should follow these manual steps:

  1. copy the module files >= 0.9.14 into site/modules/CroppableImage3/
  2. goto admin > modules > site > ProcessCroppableImage3, open it, select uninstall and uninstall it
  3. now refresh the modules cache
  4. and install the ProcessCroppableImage3
  5. open all your user roles that need edit rights for crop images and add the new " image-crop-3 " permission to them

Ready!

For fresh installs of version 0.9.14+, everything works out of the box.

Hello Horst,

I got problems with the crop function. I always get the error message "process returns no content" after clicking the cropping button:

Here are the crop settings of my image field:

Screenshot_13.jpg

As you can see I have added pre-defined crop settings to the image field.

And here you can see what happens if I press the crop button:


5xsM3xVPfB.gif

The modal window always shows that no content will be returned. I have tried to catch an error with Tracy Debugger but not luck.

PW: 3.0.32, User: Superuser, PHP 5.6.25, Server: Apache, Croppable image 3: version 0.9.14

Any idea?

Best regards Jürgen

How do you have installed it? Was a previous version there before?

If there is no Process installed, that could be because:

the ProcessImageCroppable3 isn't installed or not installed correct. maybe it misses its admin page?

Have you checked that ProcessCroppableImage3 is installed?

Did you have under Admin > Pages > a page with title "Croppable Images 3", and what is its process and name?

      Field Descriptions Extended
      This module enables you to extend field descriptions by dividing short descriptions with a longer text that is revealed in a toggle.
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/field-descriptions-extended/
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/FieldDescriptionsExtended
      Extending your field descriptions using the standard field's description field.
      Once this module is installed, it will automatically search your description field for the presence of 5 dashes (-----).
      Any content above the 5 dashes will be visible and the content below the dashes will be hidden. A 'More...' link will appear at the end of the short description which when clicked will reveal the rest of the description.
      Using Simple Markdown Editor with the description field
      If you have Simple Markdown Editor (InputfieldSimpleMDE) installed, you can enable the field description to have that editor.
      *When using Simple MDE, you can use the button (Insert Horizontal Line) instead of typing 5 dashes. More about SimpleMDE.
      Extending your field descriptions using content from a ProcessWire Page for the field description.
      You may use the content from a ProcessWire page as a field description. This would allow you to easily insert images, links, and use hanna codes.
      To use page content for your field descriptions, please follow these instructions:
      Install Select Fields module (FieldtypeFields) http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-fields/ Create a new field using this field type, e.g. field_select. Add the field to any template you will be using for your field descriptions. Setup your help pages (for example under a settings branch) where you will store the field description content,using the template containing the Field Select. Add content to a page and select the field where that content should show. To show a short text before the link to the longer content, separate them with 5 dashes Be sure to update your settings on this page, first enable page content descriptions,then specify the name of the Select Fields field, template to search, and content field. If you create a field description using this method, please note that the description field must be blank for contexts where you want the page content to appear.
      You can freely use template context for field descriptions, but the Page Content method is not context sensitive and will display under all contexts where the description is blank.
      ----
      original post:
      This is a new module, hope to release soon, which allows extended field descriptions, in currently 2 ways.
      The main feature of the module is that you can have a short description and then a 'more...' link which drops down a longer block of text.
      This is achieved by separating the intro/visible text and the rest with 5 dashes.

      Example setup:

      the 2nd way is if you are using AdminThemeUiKit, you can show extended field instructions in a panel. The content of the panel is edited on a regular PW page. This use case would probably not be that common, but if you had a field that required some extended instructions for how to use, this could be useful; Also, since this allows you to target information and instructions down at the field level, it could reduce the amount of documentation needed on a global level, since it is a lot more context targeted.

      Breadcrumb Dropdowns
      Adds dropdown menus of page edit links to the breadcrumbs in Page Edit.

      Installation
      Install the Breadcrumb Dropdowns module. The module requires ProcessWire >= v3.0.83 and AdminThemeUikit.
      There is a checkbox option in the module config that determines if the breadcrumb dropdowns will include pages that the user does not have permission to edit.
      Features/details
      The module adds an additional breadcrumb item at the end for the currently edited page. That's because I think it's more intuitive for the dropdown under each breadcrumb item to show the item's sibling pages rather than the item's child pages. In the dropdown menus the current page and the current page's parents are highlighted in a crimson colour to make it easier to quickly locate them in case you want to edit the next or previous sibling page. If the option to include uneditable pages is selected then those pages are indicated by a reduced text opacity and the "not-allowed" cursor is shown on hover. There is a limit of 25 sibling pages per dropdown for performance reasons and to avoid the dropdown becoming unwieldy. Incompatibilities
      This module replaces the AdminThemeUikit::renderBreadcrumbs method so will potentially be incompatible with other modules that hook the same method.

      Hey guys, 
      Thought I would share a quick preview of Designme. A module we (Eduardo @elabx and I) are building for visually laying out your templates/edit screens. 🙂
      This is a really quick, zero polish screen grab. FYI. 
      Video #2 - UPDATE
      This new video shows the following features in Designme:
      Re-arranging fields via Drag & Drop Re-sizing fields via Dragging. Adjusting field settings - with live refresh. Working on "hidden" fields while Designme is active. Creating New fields. Deleting fields. Creating/Deleting Tabs. Dragging fields between tabs. Creating fieldsets. Tagging/Un-tagging fields. Fields without headers expand when hovered (like checkboxes). Live filtering of fields in the sidebar. Ability to adjust (all) Template settings without leaving Designme. Template File Tree Editing Template files source code with ACE Editor. Editing Multiple files with ACE Editor. (New Tabs) Saving files. Techie stuff Fields load their own js/css dependancies. *ready to use on creation (*most fields)  Everything happens via Ajax to ProcessPageEdit (via module + hooks). Designme has a JS api that you can use.  All actions trigger events.  We would love any detailed feedback on what you see so far. If you are interested in testing Designme. Let me know below. 🙂
