Croppable Image 3

for PW 3.0.20+

Module Version 1.1.16

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.

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:

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?

      Hi all,
      I'm a new to website building. Learned some CRASH course of js,jquery,php. Then I found CMS. Still learning around forum, youtube....
      Anyway, please help me with some beginer questions:
      1, About template - please correct me if I understand wrong : every page should be (or recommended) built on a template. So if in total I'll have 10 pages, 2 of them have same layout, I'll need 9 templates.  And, what fields a page includes, is not defined in page, but defined in the template that page uses. 
      2,  Where to see what modules I've installed? is it in "Modules - Site"? 
      3, I installed "PageTable Extended", then what?  As in a youtube tutorial, it should appear in Setup tab, but it doesn't.  What's in there: templates,fields,logs,comments. (I installed "Uikit 3 site_blog profile".)
      4, I did a search in Processwire website for the famous "repeater matrix" module, and can not find it, there's a Repeater, as well as a Matrix. Is it not a module?
      5, I watched this youtube tuts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHqnLQy9R1A
      Anybody familiar with this tuts please help: 
      After he analysed a target webpage layout he wanted to mimic, he created some fields, some template, then based on those he created a page and input some "content" in there, then clicked "view", it's just some text. So, here comes my question, he copied a folder "assets" (subfolders are: css,fonts,js,img) over, then the page have the appearance/layout he wanted to mimic. Where does that assets folder come from?
      Appreciate any help.

      I've created a set of modules for importing (manipulating and displaying) data from external resources. A key requirement was to handle large (100k+) number of pages easily.
      Main features
      import data from CSV and XML sources in the background (using Tasker) purge, update or overwrite existing pages using selectors user configurable input <-> field mappings on-the-fly data conversion and composition (e.g. joining CSV columns into a single field) download external resources (files, images) during import handle page references by any (even numeric) fields How it works
      You can upload CSV or XML files to DataSet pages and specify import rules in their description.
      The module imports the content of the file and creates/updates child pages automatically.
      How to use it
      Create a DataSet page that stores the source file. The file's description field specifies how the import should be done:
      After saving the DataSet page an import button should appear below the file description.

      When you start the import the DataSet module creates a task (executed by Tasker) that will import the data in the background.
      You can monitor its execution and check its logs for errors.

      See the module's wiki for more details.
      The module was already used in three projects to import and handle large XML and CSV datasets. It has some rough edges and I'm sure it needs improvement so comments are welcome.

      Pages At Bottom
      Keeps selected pages at the bottom of their siblings.
      A "bottom page" will stay at the bottom even if it is drag-sorted to a different location or another page is drag-sorted below it (after Page List is refreshed the bottom page will still be at the bottom).
      Newly added sibling pages will not appear below a bottom page.
      The module also prevents the API methods $pages->sort() and $pages->insertAfter() from affecting the position of bottom pages.
      Note: the module only works when the sort setting for children on the parent page/template is "Manual drag-n-drop".
      Why?
      Because you want some pages to always be at the bottom of their siblings for one reason or another. And someone requested it. 🙂
      Usage
      Install the Pages At Bottom module.
      Select one or more pages to keep at the bottom of their siblings. If you select more than one bottom page per parent then their sort order in the page list will be the same as the sort order in the module config.

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      Why?
      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Installation
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.
