Install the Add Image URLs module.

A "Paste URLs" button will be added to all image and file fields. Use the button to show a textarea where URLs may be pasted, one per line. Images/files are added when the page is saved.

Really useful module I consider to be this one, I have done something similar on one website but was not as elegant as this one.

Thank you for your work.

nice :)

do you think you could extend this module to also store images pasted from the clipboard? 

PS: i think it would be great if the images were added via AJAX right after pasting (either urls or clipboard). what do you think @Robin S ?

I agree it would be handy, but that would be a completely different thing to what this module is doing. This module is essentially just using Pageimages::add() on the submitted URLs, and that method has no support for clipboard data. I don't think I want to disappear into the browser clipboard rabbit-hole with this module. :-)

I'll have a think about it. It would make the module significantly more complex and I'm not sure how much time I want to put into it. Maybe if I get bored sometime...

I'm getting an error on this...

Error: Uncaught TypeError: Argument 1 passed to ProcessWire\Pageimage::__construct() must be an instance of ProcessWire\Pagefiles, null given, called in /home/walking/public_html/site/modules/AddImageUrls/AddImageUrls.module on line 152 and defined in /home/walking/public_html/wire/core/Pageimage.php:109

Can you give a more detailed report please?

  • What are the image URLs you are trying to add when you see the error notice?
  • Is the issue reproducible? i.e. if you try again with the same URLs do you see the same notice?
  • If you download the images to your computer and then upload as per a normal addition to an images field, do they work then?
  • Anything special about your images field - e.g. inside a Repeater or PageTable?
  • The error seems to be related to the field name. Could you please post a screenshot of your browser dev tools showing the source code of the textarea input that this module adds to the images field (like the one below)?

That will help me get to the bottom of this. Thanks.

I've tried several URL's from various places - all get the same error

I get it with every URL so yes, reproducable.  I have not been able to save any images this way.

Saving the image and then uploading works fine.

Not inside a repeater or anything special, just a normal Images field

Full Error: image.thumb.png.fad8a91ee02bc55c323b1e2a18e494bc.png

@hezmann, if you can give me access to your dev site (send me a message) I would be happy to take a look. Otherwise I'm out of ideas sorry.

Hey @Robin S - I thought since I've been mucking about with a lot of modules and code I would do a clean install and see what happened.  I did a 100% clean install on a site that has literally never had anything on it (I owned the domain but have never used it).  Only added one field for images with one template.  Created a page and got this error:  image.thumb.png.b057755514b928016590e05782f264ac.png

I'll send you a message with login details to the new site.  Thanks!

Hey @Robin S, I thought this module was handy so I modified the AddImageUrls module and adapted it to work for file fields.

I attached the new "AddFileUrls" module.  Feel free to upload it to your github or publish these to the module directory.

It seems to work well in my testing.

Hope that helps

v0.2.0 released, which adds support for File fields so that file URLs can be added the same as with Image fields. Thanks to @gmclelland for the idea.

I've also submitted the module to the directory now seeing as it seems to be working well without any significant issues reported.

Thanks for adding this to modules directory and combining both module's functionality. 🎉

Not sure if this is possible, but sometimes you have sites that have file urls or image urls with no extensions.  Example: mywebsite.com/this-is-a-pdf-link or mywebsite.com/this-is-an-image

Urls like that won't work currently with this module.  I'm not sure if there is a way to add a check if the url doesn't have an extension, then check the mime type against the allowed extensions?

Maybe somehow comparing the two by using $config->fileContentTypes and $ctype = mime_content_type($file->filename); ?

I've added support for these sorts of remote files in v0.2.1.

Hi @Robin S, just wanted to let you know that I tried out the latest version, but it didn't seem to work with the file/image files with no extension.

Here are some examples that didn't work for me:

Ex. pdf file with no extension:

https://www.charleston-sc.gov/DocumentCenter/View/18787/Certificate-of-Construction-Completion-RES-Checklist?bidId=

Ex. image file with no extension:

https://www.charleston-sc.gov/ImageRepository/Document?documentID=23023

After saving the page with those urls, it shows the following error message:

AddImageUrls: The remote file https://www.charleston-sc.gov/DocumentCenter/View/18787/Certificate-of-Construction-Completion-RES-Checklist?bidId= has no file extension and its MIME type does not correspond with a valid file extension for field "page_files".

The file field is configured to allow pdf files and the image field is configured to allow png, jpg, jpeg, gif.

Do these urls work for you?

This was due to $config->fileContentTypes not having up-to-date MIME types. I created an issue here and decided it would be better to make the MIME type > file extension mapping configurable in v0.2.2 rather than using $config->fileContentTypes. Please update the module and the problem should be fixed.

P.S. This page is a useful resource if anyone wants to set additional MIME type mappings: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Basics_of_HTTP/MIME_types/Complete_list_of_MIME_types

      This module is (yet another) way for implementing a cookie management solution.
      Of course there are several other possibilities:
      - https://processwire.com/talk/topic/22920-klaro-cookie-consent-manager/
      - https://github.com/webmanufaktur/CookieManagementBanner
      - https://github.com/johannesdachsel/cookiemonster
      - https://www.oiljs.org/
      - ... and so on ...
      In this module you can configure which kind of cookie categories you want to manage:

      You can also enable the support for respecting the Do-Not-Track (DNT) header to don't annoy users, who already decided for all their browsing experience.
      Currently there are four possible cookie groups:
      - Necessary (always enabled)
      - Statistics
      - Marketing
      - External Media
      All groups can be renamed, so feel free to use other cookie group names. I just haven't found a way to implement a "repeater like" field as configurable module field ...
      When you want to load specific scripts ( like Google Analytics, Google Maps, ...) only after the user's content to this specific category of cookies, just use the following script syntax:
      <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="statistics" data-src="/path/to/your/statistic/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing" data-src="/path/to/your/mareketing/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="external_media" data-src="/path/to/your/external-media/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing">console.log("Inline scripts are also working!");</script> The type has to be "optin" to get recognized by PrivacyWire, the data-attributes are giving hints, how the script shall be loaded, if the data-category is within the cookie consents of the user. These scripts are loaded asynchronously after the user made the decision.
      If you want to give the users the possibility to change their consent, you can use the following Textformatter:
      [[privacywire-choose-cookies]] It's planned to add also other Textformatters to opt-out of specific cookie groups or delete the whole consent cookie.
      You can also add a custom link to output the banner again with a link / button with following class:
      <a href="#" class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</a> <button class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</button> This module is still in development, but we already use it on several production websites.
      You find it here: PrivacyWire Git Repo
      Download as .zip
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂
      CHANGELOG
      0.0.5 Multi-language support included completely (also in TextFormatter). Added possibility to async load other assets (e.g. <img type="optin" data-category="marketing" data-src="https://via.placeholder.com/300x300">) 0.0.4 Added possibility to add an imprint link to the banner 0.0.3 Multi-language support for module config (still in development) 0.0.2 First release 0.0.1 Early development

      This is a new module that provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Beta release
      Note that I consider this a Beta release. Since the module is relatively aggressive in deleting some caches, I would advise you to install in on a test environment before using it on a live site.
      Let me know if you're getting any errors, have trouble using the module or if you have suggestions for improvement!
      In particular, can someone let me know if this module causes any problems with the ProCache module? I don't own or use it, so I can't check. As far as I can tell, ProCache uses a folder inside the cache directory to cache static pages, so my module should be able to clear the ProCache site cache as well, I'd appreciate it if someone can test that for me.
      Future plans
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      Admin Page Tree Multiple Sorting
      ClassName: ProcessPageListMultipleSorting
      Extend the ordinary sort of children of a template in the admin page tree with multiple properties. For each template, you can define your own rule. Write each template (template-name) in a row, followed by a colon and then the additional field names for sorting.
      Example: All children of the template "blog" to be sorted in descending order according to the date of creation, then descending by modification date, and then by title. Type:
      blog: -created, -modified, title  Installation
      Copy the files for this module to /site/modules/ProcessPageListMultipleSorting/ In admin: Modules > Check for new modules. Install Module "Admin Page Tree Multible Sorting". Alternative in ProcessWire 2.4+
      Login to ProcessWire backend and go to Modules Click tab "New" and enter Module Class Name: "ProcessPageListMultipleSorting" Click "Download and Install"   Compatibility   I have currently tested the module only under PW 2.6+, but think that it works on older versions too. Maybe someone can give a feedback.     Download   PW-Repo: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-page-list-multiple-sorting/ GitHub: https://github.com/FlipZoomMedia/Processwire-ProcessPageListMultipleSorting     I hope someone can use the module. Have fun and best regards, David

      Hello,
      this module can publish content of a Processwire page on a Facebook page, triggered by saving the Processwire page.
      To set it up, configure the module with a Facebook app ID, secret and a Page ID. Following is additional configuration on Facebook for developers:
      Minimum Required Facebook App configuration:
      on Settings -> Basics, provide the App Domains, provide the Site URL, on Settings -> Advanced, set the API version (has been tested up to v3.3), add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "https://www.example.com/processwire/page/" to field Valid OAuth Redirect URIs. This module is configurable as follows:
      Templates: posts can take place only for pages with the defined templates. On/Off switch: specify a checkbox field that will not allow the post if checked. Specify a message and/or an image for the post.
      Usage
      edit the desired PW page and save; it will post right after the initial Facebook log in and permission granting. After that, an access token is kept.
       
      Download
      PW module directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/auto-fb-post/ Github: https://github.com/kastrind/AutoFbPost   Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is utilized.
