@strandoo Not sure if this would help, but I notice you are using the short form url on the second example (that does not work) of https://youtu.be/LBY12usmYAA, have you tried using the actual youtube url (which I cannot link to here because it embeds the video)?

 

I haven't tested, but youtube.be should work: https://github.com/ryancramerdesign/TextformatterVideoEmbed/blob/7c8e4ddce22dc4970c17d0f63ce3d53679e7e3a8/TextformatterVideoEmbed.module#L163

Here's it working as expected:

@adrian You are likely correct. I did not do any real testing. However, as an interesting note, when I posted my previous message you can see the url to youtu.be as a url, however, the link to the video using youtube.com actually embedded the video. So, I have to assume that the forum is using the plugin and it did not show the shortened version.

This forum is just an IPBoard forum - no PW code or use of this module. Good thought though :)

@artaylor I've tried different URLs with similar results. I just tested the embed URL and that didn't work. And as @adrian pointed out, but short form does work (on the 'good' site). I checked other text formatters to make sure they didn't conflict. One thing I just thought of is that they are served from different hosting companies (StableHost vs HostingUK) so differing server configs could be in play...

The other only works if it's a Vimeo video; YouTube URLs slow the page loading then only displays the URL.

The strange thing is though is that you have working embedded YouTube videos on that site here:

Perhaps the host is running mod_security or similar and that is being triggered by particular patterns in some video URLs?

@strandoo Add the following on top of your .htaccess file. Perhaps this will fix the problem.

<IfModule mod_security.c>
  SecFilterEngine Off
  SecFilterScanPOST Off
</IfModule>

Hi all. This has been driving me nuts: I've used this module previously and it worked perfectly. I've got it on 2 sites, but music-related. One works normally; I use the textformatter on the body text and videos display fine. The other only works if it's a Vimeo video; YouTube URLs slow the page loading then only displays the URL. I've tried a number of tests and different URLs and I can't figure this out. Both sites are not new and I'm pretty sure that it used to work where now it doesn't.

Here are two samples (they are past gigs, so I can play around with them without messing up the live sites):

Works: https://waveneyvalleyfolkcollective.co.uk/events/kirsty-merryn-jack-harris/

Doesn't Work: http://www.burstoncrown.com/events/sunday-sessions/falling-from-trees/

Any suggestions?

I've seen something similar to this on a client site when this textformatter was added to a CKEditor'd textarea field. It turned out that I was pasting in links to the video, not just the plaintext of the video address and this was causing the formatter to fail to match and then embed it. If you look at the source of the page where the video doesn't work, look to see if the text you pasted is actually a link, and if so, simply break the link, save the page and revisit it on the front-end.

I hope that is what's happening here - but there's no guarantee it is.

I tried inserting this link and it works here. There is something that makes text formater to fail and then just plain text is rendered. As netcarver pointed, remove the link to video altogether, save the page and the insert it again. Also, the site sometimes takes a long time to load at all, but its unrelated I guess.

Ah, I should have mentioned that. Since this is alive site, and that's an upcoming gig, I needed a workaround. I'm not using the module there, just a special field that inserts the YouTube URL in an iframe. I prefer the responsiveness of Ryan's module.

@netcarver  I've run into that problem in the past, so I've checked. All clean text. 

@PWaddict That sound promising. I've had problems with mod_security before. I'll try it out a bit later today. 

Last night I created a local version of the site and the videos loaded fine, leading me to think it's a hosting/php/config thing.

Then I'm 99.9% sure that the mod_security is causing the problem. The suggested fix will do the job.

So, as PWaddict predicted, turning off mod_security did the trick, but I couldn't do it with the htaccess rule. I tried that first, but it didn't do anything, so I disabled it in the Plesk control panel. (It's under 'Web Application Firewall..'; I've set it to 'detection only' rather than 'on' or 'off'. If anyone knows of a downside to this or if I can target something more directly, please let me know). But the video now appears as it should. Thanks all.

Update: a couple of days later, the problem returned. I contacted support for this account and after a bit of back and forth, I gave up. I took a look at the hosting Plesk cp and saw that mod_sec is turned off. The PHP version was 5.3 (I'm pretty sure I had it at 5.6) so I changed it back to 5.6. I'm basically back where I started. Maybe I'll move the account to my reseller hosting. Everything works fine there...

Hi

How do I center the video? If it's embed in <p>link<p>, it's display. But if we do <p style="text-align:center;">link</p>, the video doesn't display.

I just have 2 formatters, this one and Hanna.

Thanks

Hello,

Found a solution via css, but I don't know how to apply to it since this iframe have no id neither class. (I have others iframe which I doesn't want to center).

So how I can apply an id or class to the video iframe?

Thanks

I prefer the responsive embed method...

...and this applies a class to a containing div element.

Thanks, but responsive tooks too much space in desktop version, even if it's was fine in mobile version. I found a way to specify some CSS rules. Thanks.

I'm in process of upgrading PW 2.5.4, PHP 5.6.8 and using TextformatterVideoEmbed version 109. When I upgrade this module to the latest version 111 I get 

Compile Error: Cannot make static method ConfigurableModule::getModuleConfigInputfields() non static in
class TextformatterVideoEmbed (line 18 of \site\modules\TextformatterVideoEmbed\TextformatterVideoEmbed.module) 

Is it possible that this method is problematic?

version 109:

public static function getModuleConfigInputfields(array $data) {

version 111:

public function getModuleConfigInputfields(array $data) {

Upgrading to which PW version? 2.x or 3.x?

My plan is to go slow: 2.5.4 -> 2.7.3 -> 2.8.62 -> 3.0.102 But it fails on 2.5.4. The module itself states it's stable and working on 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 3.0 I know the module v 111 works on PW 3 (various versions).

I have upgraded several old (~4 yrs) PW sites straight to the latest dev version. The more you wait with upgrading, the more you'll have to change. Sometimes it just means adding PW namespaces, or upgrading modules as well. Sadly, I have no clue why this function causes problems. I just came across Ryan's announcement of this function: https://processwire.com/blog/posts/new-module-configuration-options/

This was introduced for 2.5.5. Maybe @ryan can shed some light on this...

      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.

      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.

      UPDATE: I have published a stable version of this module!
      Discussion thread:
      Github: https://github.com/MoritzLost/TextformatterPageTitleLinks
      ---
      Hello there,
      I'm working on a tiny textformatter module that searches the text for titles of other pages on your site and creates hyperlinks to them. I'm not sure if something like this exists already, but I haven't found anything in the module directory, so I wrote my own solution 🙂
      It's not properly tested yet and is still missing some functionality I would like to implement, so at the moment it should be considered in BETA. Features include limiting the pages that will get searched by template, and adding a custom CSS class to the generated hyperlinks. As I'm writing this I noticed that it will probably include unpublished and hidden pages at the moment, so yeah ... it's still in development alright 😅
      You can download the module from Github:
      https://github.com/MoritzLost/TextformatterPageTitleLinks
      There's some more information in the readme as well.
      Anyway, let me know what you think! I'm happy about any feedback, possible improvements or ideas on how to improve the module. Cheers.

      I'm really in love with FormBuilder, but the one thing missing to match all my end users' expectations were repeatable field groups. Think repeaters, in ProcessWire terms. Our primary application of PW is our corporate intranet, so "lines" of fields are quite common in the forms I build. We have all kinds of request forms where the information for a varying number of colleagues needs to be entered (from meal order to flight booking request) and where it is simply impractical to send a form for each, and I don't want to clutter my forms with multiple instances of fields that may only get used ten percent of the time.
      That's why I started to build FormBuilderMultiplier (link to GitHub).
      What it does:
      Adds an option to make a regular Fieldgroup repeatable Lets you limit the number of instances of a Fieldgroup on the form Adds an "Add row" button the form that adds another instance of the Fieldgroup's fields Adds a counter suffix at the end of every affected field's label Stores the entered values just like regular fields Makes the entered values available in preview and email notifications Supports most text based fields, textareas and selects (really, I haven't had enough time to test all the available choices yet) What it doesn't do (yet):
      Support saving to ProcessWire pages (i.e. real Repeaters) I haven't tested all the validation stuff, Date/Time inputs etc. yet, but since I'm utterly swamped with other stuff at work, I didn't want to wait until I have it polished. Any feedback is welcome. There might also be some issues with different output frameworks that I haven't encountered yet. The forms I work with mostly use UIKit.
      Status:
      Still alpha, so test well before using it in the field.
      Known issues:
      When rows are added, the form's iframe needs to be resized, which isn't completely clean yet.
      How it works:
      The Fieldgroup settings are added through regular hooks, as is the logic that adds the necessary field copies for processing the form and displaying previews.
      "Multiplied" field instances are suffixed with _NUM, where NUM is an incremental integer starting from 1. So if you have add two fields named "surname" and "givenname" to a fieldgroup and check the "multiply" checkbox, the form will initially have "surname_1" and "givenname_1" field (I'm still considering changing that to make the risk to shoot oneself into the foot by having a regular "surname_1" field somewhere else in the form less likely).
      When a "row" is added, the first row is cloned through JS and the counter in the fields' IDs, names and "for" attributes as well as the counter in the label are incremented before appending the copies to the Fieldset container in the form.
      To keep backend and frontend in sync, a hidden field named [name of the fieldset]__multiplier_rows is added to the form. Both the backend and the frontend script use this to store and retrieve the number of "rows".
      ToDo:
      Naturally, add the option to store the data in real repeaters when saving to pages. Do a lot of testing (and likely fixing). Make a few things (like the "Add row" button label etc.) configurable in field(set) context. Add a smooth API to retrieve the multiplied values as WireArrays. The mandatory moving screenshot:
