Hello,

I already found a way to upload pictures and videos which are already uploaded in youtube or vimeo. I'm know trying to create the CMS part for the music. The client will basically have its music uploaded via soundcloud. The client could copy and paste the embed option of soundcloud and insert it into a field. This could be echoed trough a foreach loop.

What I dont know is how will I do this. Which field should I use and which method is the best?

Daniel, ProcessWire will put the info exactly where you want it to be, it doesn't make any distinction between things like "title" or "alt". You have to read carefully the instructions of prettyPhoto to know how it works (I din't have any contact with it until now), and build your html from there. That's why I told you that you should have the gallery displaying exactly has you want with html, and put the dynamic things only later.

That would be the best way. Just create a text field (gallery_name f.e.) and put it next to the images field on the template. Then, complete your code like this:

rel='prettyPhoto[{$page->gallery_name}]'

You only need unique names for each gallery if you will put more than one in one page. If this will happen, you risk that people give the same name to both gallery, and it will mess everything. You have two options for this:

  • Tell people that they can't do it, either verbally or on the field description.
  • Create unique ids for each gallery.

Here's how you can create the unique ID's:

Simple option is to a random string

rel='prettyPhoto[{rand_string(5)}]'

Another option, is to use some information that is, for sure, unique to this gallery (this will depend on how you will put more than one in each page)

galery_id = "gallery-" . $page->name;
...
rel='prettyPhoto[{$gallery_id}]'

Hello again,

I have the pictures working and also with the videos from youtube and vimeo included. The last step would be to create an option for the rel="" field. I read your post but there is one thing I do not understand... If I create a new text field as for example gallery_name as mentioned above how does this link to the field where I have the images? So, there are two fields, one called images and the other gallery_name. HOw are these linked so I can have different galleries?

Another method I thought about is using the name of the fields. Therefore if the field was called friends at park the value inside rel would be rel="{friends at park}". This way when the client creates a new image field with a different title it will create a different gallery. Is this possible?

I think you are going too fast here. Maybe you should have a better look around the forums and read the documentation on the website to have a feel of how ProcessWire works. There is a great walkthrough here http://processwire.c...ct-walkthrough/. You will see that it feels great when you understand the full potential of PW, and start wanting to find out these things for yourself.

Having said that. Here is a tip... For having several galleries on a webpage, best thing is to have each gallery on it's own page on the tree (you don't have to show them as pages on the website itself though). Then, you can get them all from your template.

foreach ($page->children as $child){
   foreach($child->images as $image){
       echo "<img src='{$image->url}' rel='$child->gallery_name'/>";
   }
}

Hey I've been trying and I read the documentation but I still dont understand it 100%... I undesrtand that the code you've uploaded me is the play with the url of processwire and activate any page which is in the tree of my template and activate the picture uploaded in that page. I hope this makes sense... otherwise I'm very lost hehe.

The code in comment is the code which is selecting the way to display video or photos depending of its content. The problem as I said is that I want the client to be able to add a new gallery of pictures/videos and this then to be displayed in a row under. This is the code I have in this moment and the page I created but I don;t get any effect. Could you please guide me?

<?php
/*
foreach($page->photo as $image)
{
$description = $image->description;
$img = $image->url;
$thumb = "<img src='{$image->getThumb('thumbnail')}' width='50' height='50' alt='DJFemke photo/video'>";

if(strpos($description, '@') !== false)
{
list($description, $link) = explode('@', $description);
}
else
{
$link = '';
}
if($link) $out = "<div class='single'><a href='$link' rel='prettyPhoto[gal1]' title='$description'>$thumb</a></div>";
if(!$link) $out = "<div class='single'><a href='$img' rel='prettyPhoto[gal1]' title='$description'>$thumb</a></div>";
echo $out;
}
*/
foreach ($page->children as $child){
foreach($child->images as $image){
$img = $image->url;
$description = $image->description;
$thumb = "<img src='{$image->getThumb('thumbnail')}' width='50' height='50' alt='DJFemke photo/video'>";

if(strpos($description, '@') !== false)
{
list($description, $link) = explode('@', $description);
}
else
{
$link = '';
}

if($link) $out = "<div class='single'><a href='$link' rel='gallery_name' title='$description'>$thumb</a></div>";
if(!$link) $out = "<div class='single'><a href='$img' rel='gallery_name' title='$description'>$thumb</a></div>";
echo $out;
}
}

?>

Under is the image of what I have displayed in the front end with the code thats is within comments in the code above. The effect I wish is that if the clients requieres to add a new gallery of pictures/video it will appear in a row under. This is done with CSS of course, but I need to make a CSS property which will create a div with these properties.

I also put a picture of where the new page I created "party1" is. I hope it helps.

How should I proceed? Really thanks guys... If I have this done, processwire is done for this website... After I will go on with processwire because it has a lot of potential. I think I understand it but I miss the last part...

      AppApiFile adds the /file endpoint to the AppApi routes definition. Makes it possible to query files via the api. 
      This module relies on the base module AppApi, which must be installed before AppApiFile can do its work.
      Features
      You can access all files that are uploaded at any ProcessWire page. Call api/file/route/in/pagetree?file=test.jpg to access a page via its route in the page tree. Alternatively you can call api/file/4242?file=test.jpg (e.g.,) to access a page by its id. The module will make sure that the page is accessible by the active user.
      The GET-param "file" defines the basename of the file which you want to get.
      The following GET-params (optional) can be used to manipulate an image:
      width height maxwidth maxheight cropX cropY Use GET-Param format=base64 to receive the file in base64 format.

      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.

      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.

      Visit https://www.tawk.to and create an account. It's free! At some point you will reach a page where you can copy the required JavaScript-code.

      Open the module settings and paste the JavaScript-code into the field as shown below. Click "Submit" and that's all.

      Open the module settings
      The settings for this module are located int the menu Modules=>Configure=>LiveChatTawkTo.

      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.
