Add Image URLs

Recommended Posts

Add Image URLs

Allows images/files to be added to Image/File fields by pasting URLs.

screencast

Usage

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)?

2018-02-05_101903.thumb.png.20073e94b74aaec6545dfec1222a2795.png

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

      SnipWire - Snipcart integration for ProcessWire
      Snipcart is a powerful 3rd party, developer-first HTML/JavaScript shopping cart platform. SnipWire is the missing link between Snipcart and the content management framework ProcessWire.
      With SnipWire, you can quickly turn any ProcessWire site into a Snipcart online shop. The SnipWire plugin helps you to get your store up and running in no time. Detailed knowledge of the Snipcart system is not required.
      SnipWire is free and open source licensed under Mozilla Public License 2.0! A lot of work and effort has gone into development. It would be nice if you could donate an amount to support further development:

      Status update links (inside this thread) for SnipWire development

      Happy new year, everybody 🥬
      I've been sitting on this Dashboard module I made for a client and finally came around to cleaning it up and releasing it to the wider public. This is how it looks.
      ProcessWire Dashboard

      If anyone is interested in trying this out, please go ahead! I'd love to get some feedback on it. If this proves useful and survives some real-world testing, I'll add this to the module directory.
      Download
      You can find the latest release on Github.
      Documentation
      Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options.
      Custom Panels
      My goal was to make it really simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people.
       Disclaimer
      This is a pre-release version. Please treat it as such — don't install it on production sites. Just making sure 🍇
      Roadmap
      These are the things I'm looking to implement myself at some point. The wishlist is a lot longer, but those are the 80/20 items that I probably won't regret spending time on.
      Improve documentation & add examples ⚙️ Panel types Google Analytics ⚙️ Add new page  🔥 Drafts 🔥 At a glance / Page counter 404s  Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel panel groups with heading and spacing between ✅ panel wrappers as grid item (e.g. stacked notices) ✅ Admin themes support AdminThemeReno and AdminThemeDefault ✅ Shortcuts panel add a table layout with icon, title & summary ✅ Chart panel add default styles for common chart types ✅ load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array) Collection panel support image columns ✅ add buttons: view all & add new ✅

      This module is inspired by and similar to the Template Stubs module. The author of that module has not been active in the PW community for several years now and parts of the code for that module didn't make sense to me, so I decided to create my own module. Auto Template Stubs has only been tested with PhpStorm because that is the IDE that I use.
      Auto Template Stubs
      Automatically creates stub files for templates when fields or fieldgroups are saved.
      Stub files are useful if you are using an IDE (e.g. PhpStorm) that provides code assistance - the stub files let the IDE know what fields exist in each template and what data type each field returns. Depending on your IDE's features you get benefits such as code completion for field names as you type, type inference, inspection, documentation, etc.
      Installation
      Install the Auto Template Stubs module.
      Configuration
      You can change the class name prefix setting in the module config if you like. It's good to use a class name prefix because it reduces the chance that the class name will clash with an existing class name.
      The directory path used to store the stub files is configurable.
      There is a checkbox to manually trigger the regeneration of all stub files if needed.
      Usage
      Add a line near the top of each of your template files to tell your IDE what stub class name to associate with the $page variable within the template file. For example, with the default class name prefix you would add the following line at the top of the home.php template file:
      /** @var tpl_home $page */ Now enjoy code completion, etc, in your IDE.

      Adding data types for non-core Fieldtype modules
      The module includes the data types returned by all the core Fieldtype modules. If you want to add data types returned by one or more non-core Fieldtype modules then you can hook the AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes() method. For example, in /site/ready.php:
      // Add data types for some non-core Fieldtype modules $wire->addHookAfter('AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes', function(HookEvent $event) { $extra_types = [ 'FieldtypeDecimal' => 'string', 'FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker' => 'LeafletMapMarker', 'FieldtypeRepeaterMatrix' => 'RepeaterMatrixPageArray', 'FieldtypeTable' => 'TableRows', ]; $event->return = $event->return + $extra_types; }); Credits
      Inspired by and much credit to the Template Stubs module by mindplay.dk.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.60
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      ⚠️ NOTICE: 1.5.60 is an important security patch-release for an XSS vulnerability discovered by @phlp. It's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that all Jumplinks users update to the latest version as soon as possible.
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy! 🙂

      Hello all,
      sharing my new module FieldtypeImageReference. It provides a configurable input field for choosing any type of image from selectable sources. Sources can be: 
      a predefined folder in site/templates/ and/or a  page (and optionally its children) and/or the page being edited and/or any page on the site CAUTION: this module is under development and not quite yet in a production-ready state. So please test it carefully.
      UPDATE: the new version v2.0.0 introduces a breaking change due to renaming the module. If you have an older version already installed, you need to uninstall it and install the latest master version.
      Module and full description can be found on github https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImageReference
      Install from URL: https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImageReference/archive/master.zip
      Read on for features and use cases.
      Features
      Images can be loaded from a folder inside site/templates/ or site/assets Images in that folder can be uploaded and deleted from within the inputfield Images can be loaded from other pages defined in the field settings Images can be organized into categories. Child pages of the main 'image source page' serve as categories mages can be loaded from any page on the site From the API side, images can be manipulated like native ProcessWire images (resizing, cropping etc.), even the images from a folder Image thumbnails are loaded into inputfield by ajax on demand Source images on other pages can be edited from within this field. Markup of SVG images can be rendered inline with `echo $image->svgcontent` Image names are fully searchable through the API $pages->find('fieldname.filename=xyz.png'); $pages->find('fieldname.filename%=xy.png'); Accidental image deletion is prevented. When you want to delete an image from one of the pages that hold your site-wide images, the module searches all pages that use that image. If any page contains a reference to the image you are trying to delete, deletion will be prevented. You will get an error message with links to help you edit those pages and remove references there before you can finally delete the image. This field type can be used with marcrura's Settings Factory module to store images on settings pages, which was not possible with other image field types When to use ?
      If you want to let editors choose an image from a set of images that is being used site-wide. Ideal for images that are being re-used across the site (e.g. icons, but not limited to that).
      Other than the native ProcessWire images field, the images here are not stored per page. Only references to images that live on other pages or inside a folder are stored. This has several advantages:
      one central place to organize images when images change, you only have to update them in one place. All references will be updated, too. (Provided the name of the image that has changed stays the same) Installation and setup instructions can be found on github.
      Here's how the input field looks like in the page editor:

      If you like to give it a try, I'm happy to hear your comments or suggestions for improvement. Install from URL: https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImageReference/archive/master.zip
      Eventually this will go in the module directory, too. But it needs some more testing before I submit it. So I'd really appreciate your assistance.
      Thanks to all who contributed their feedback and suggestions which made this module what it is now.
