ImagePicker Field

Recommended Posts

- You can organize your images the way you want and not necessarily per page / repeater-item. For example using Media Library.

- You can access the same image from different pages. No need to upload it several times.

This can be done in CKEditor, but there was no single field type for this.

One example is a repeater for an image-carousel. You can now put all the images in a Media Page called e.g. "Carousel" and then just pick them up in the repeater's ImagePicker.

- You can also fill in an external Image URL and you will see a preview in the backend.

- You can have an overview of all images in all pages of your site. (Not in Repeaters and Pagetables though)

- Website admins can give backend users (editors) a predefined set of images for a certain field which they can choose from by defining selectors.

- Picking up images is fast with ImagePicker. ;)

 

Thank you.

Wow @theo I like very much!! This work perfectly with Media Library!! I think a lot of people will benefit from it, so, thanks you a lot!! 

About some possible changes, honestly I do not see. Yes multiple images could be good but not essential, it's possible use the Repeater Field. Maybe could better when click on in the image, instead of the link to the media, have the possible to delate the image or have the box for edit the image. But I think this will be more difficult because in this way needs also save the new image and not edit the original.

But anyway this module is very very helpful! Thank you again! :)

Hello Marco: in the code there is no instruction for restrict the field only to super user...
What happens for a no super admin?

Hi @abmcr,  if you are not super admin when you click on the button to pick the image it opens a windows with Media Files page like you are in the page, so you ca not choose the file to add but you can edit it.

Yes, it probably has to do with the fact, that the page generating the picker list uses an admin template.

The page is in Admin->Setup->Image Picker List.

I have almost no time atm.

Can anybody explain how to make such pages accessible for non superusers?

Thank you.

@MarcoPLY

Can you test this?

In ImagePickerList.module (should be in site/modules/ImagePicker/)

Add 'permission' => 'imagepicker' to the getModuleInfo() block

    public static function getModuleInfo() {
        return array(
            'title' => 'ImagePicker Lister',
            'version' => 90,
            'summary' => 'ImagePicker Lister',
            'singular' => true,
            'autoload' => false,
            'permission' => 'imagepicker'
        );
    }

Then as admin in the backend do:

Access -> Permissions -> Add New:

Name: imagepicker

After saving, give it a title like "Image Picker".

Then add this permission to your editor role (Acesss -> Roles).

Try if it works. Maybe you have to log-out and in and refresh modules (Modules->Refresh).

Hi, 

I have a problem to use the size api for resize the images. 

This is an example of my situation:

<?php $features = $pages->find("template=single-design"); ?>
	<?php foreach($features as $product): ?>
		<?php
			$image_big = $product->image_card;
			$image_right = $image_big->size(250,250); // this give me error "call to a member funtion size() on null"
		?>
			<img src="<?= $image_right ?>"> <!-- If I use $image_big the images show up correctly -->
	<?php endforeach; ?>

What I can do for resize the images?

 

I also have try to use the api like in the manual 👇 - But if I use url the images never show up, also first() doesn't work. 

$image = $page->images->first();
$thumb = $image->size(100, 100)
echo "<img src='$thumb->url'>"

Hi @theo

Do have you ever tried to use api for get the url in a multi language website? Because I notice a problem with the code above. maybe I wrong something, the problem is only when I use a different language.  At moment If I switch to the second language I see the error page with this error:  "Call to a member function width() on null" or size()

Do you know why? What did I do wrong?

Hi @theo,

I tried to fix this but I can't find the way. I think the problem is about the url. I try to debug but there are different situation and I can' find a patter.

So, in home page in the pre-set language this work:

<?php
	$image_forni = $page->getInputField('ima_2')->getImage()->width(600);
	echo "	<img src='" . $image_forni->url . "'>";
?>

But If I change language not work. give me  Uncaught Error: Call to a member function width() on null

I tried $page->getInputField('ima_2')->getImage()->url  in this way for the second language the error is Trying to get property of non-object

 

Inside the page where the url have the language path is like site.com/en/page work in both languages

<?php
$image_forni = $page->getInputField('ima_2')->getImage();
echo "	<img src='" . $image_forni->url . "'>";
?>

But if I use $image_big = $post->getInputField('image_card')->getImage()->width(600); give me back an error in both languages Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function width() on null

 

I don't know if this can help you, if you don't have time maybe can give me some tips?

Thank you!

Yes, I saw this, but I have no answer. I think it has to do with how PW Image works.

But this is not really what ImagePicker is about. I added getImage() only for reading the description.

Not sure anyway if it is a good idea to change the linked image from the picker, so I am probably not going to spend time on this.

But if you get more insight, I could add your contribution to github.

I try look if I can do something, but with me poor skill I think I need your help. I know your are busy, hope to not disturb too much.

Maybe the issue is in the InputfieldImagePicker, could be add extra $field->set ? so that the url can change based on the change of the main URL.

And also, add the possibility to resize the width?

I'm nor sure if InputfieldImagePicker is the right place to make these changes.

anyway if you are busy it's ok, np.

Thank you very much @theo. I tried it just now.

So, I tried to use in different pages. In one page works. But In other no. I tried to understand way but I couldn't find a solution.

In the fist language it always works.

I the other language in the page doesn't work give me a Call to a member function width() on null  if I delate the width give me back a src="unknow".

I know you are busy so, I will try again to debug in the next days.

      MediaLibrary
      Update: MediaLibrary can now be found in the official module list.
      Out of necessity, I've started to implement a simple media library module.
      The basic mechanism is that it adds a MediaLibrary template with file and image fields. Pages of this type can be added anywhere in the page tree.
      The link and image pickers in CKEditor are extended to allow quick selection of library pages from dropdowns. In the link picker this happens in the MediaLibrary tab, where you can also see a preview of the selected image. In the image picker, simply select a library from the dropdown at the top, everything else is handled by standard functionality.
      I've put the code onto github. This module is compatible with ProcessWire 3.
      Steps to usage:
      Download the module's zip from github (switch to the pw3 branche beforehand if you want to test on PW 3.x) and unpack it into site/modules Click "Modules" -> "Refresh" in the admin Click "Install" for MediaLibrary For testing, create a page with the MediaLibrary template under home (give it an expressive title like 'Global Media') and add some images and files Edit a differnt page with a CKEditor field and add a link and an image to see the MediaLibrary features in action (see the screencap for details) Optionally, go into the module settings for MediaLibrary Note: this module is far from being as elaborate as Kongondo's Media Manager (and doesn't plan to be). If you need a feature-rich solution for integrated media management, give it a look.
      Feel free to change the settings for MediaFiles and MediaImages fields, just keep the type as multiple.
      There are some not-so-pretty hacks for creating and inserting the correct markup, which could probably be changed to use standard input fields, though I'm a bit at a loss right now how to get it to work. I've also still got to take a look at error handling before I can call it fit for production. All feedback and pointers are appreciated (that's also why I post this in the development section).

      Edit 09.03.2016 / version 0.0.4: there's now also a "Media" admin page with a shortcut to quickly add a new library.

      Edit 01.05.2016:
      Version 0.0.8:
      - The module now supports nested media libraries (all descendants of eligible media libraries are also selectable in link/image picker).
      - There's a MediaLibrary::getPageMediaLibraries method you can hook after to modify the array of available libraries.
      - You can switch between (default) select dropdowns or radio boxes in the module configuration of MediaLIbrary to choose libraries.
      Edit 10.10.2018:
      Version 0.1.3:
      - Dropped compatibility for ProcessWire legacy versions by adding namespaces
      - Allow deletion of libraries from the Media overview admin page
      - Added an option to hide media libraries from the page tree (optionally also for superusers)

      Reference: PW 3.0.111 and uikit3 based site using the Regular-Master profile.
      I am trying to add a field that provides a dropdown menu but there are no Options or Selector(s) type available - see attached image of field types available.
      The following reference under the docs does not appear to be applicable any more:
      https://processwire.com/api/modules/select-options-fieldtype/
      I can't see how to achieve this. Any assistance would be appreciated.

      This module corrects a few things that I find awkward about the "Add New Template" workflow in the PW admin. I opened a wishlist topic a while back because it would good to resolve some of these things in the core, but this module is a stopgap for now.
      Originally I was going to share these as a few standalone hooks, but decided to bundle them together in a configurable module instead.
      Add Template Enhancements
      A module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF. Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.

      Features
      Derive label from name when new template added: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. The label can be added automatically when templates are added in admin, in admin/API, or not at all. There are options for underscore/hyphen replacement and capitalisation of the label. Edit template after add: when adding only a single template, the template is automatically opened for editing after it is added. Copy field contexts when cloning: this copies the field contexts (a.k.a. overrides such as column width, label and description) from the source template to the new template when using the "Duplicate/clone this template?" feature on the Advanced tab. Copy field contexts when duplicating fields: this copies the field contexts if you select the "Duplicate fields used by another template" option when adding a new template. Usage
      Install the Add Template Enhancements module.
      Configure the module settings according to what suits you.

      As I mentioned in this issue, I've create a new textformatter for ParsedownExtraPlugin, which adds some oomph to your markdown.
      Repo: Parsedown Extra Plugin
      Unlike the built-in textformatter for Parsedown and Parsedown Extra, this should be used when you want to use Extra with additional configuration/customisation.
      Some examples:
      ### Test {.heading} - A [external link](https://google.com/){.google} with `google` as a class that opens in a new tab if the config property is set. - [Another link](/page){target=_blank} that opens in a new tab even though it isn't external. ```html .html <p>Test</p> ``` There's some config options available to you, such as setting attributes on all/external images and links, setting table and table-cell alignment classes, adjusting footnote classes and IDs, adding <code> attributes to their parent <pre> elements, and changing the <code> class if your syntax highlighter does not use language-*.
      I was thinking about adding the ability to make links open in a new tab by appending a plus to the link syntax, but only external links should be opening in a new tab anyway. Further, this would add extra, unnecessary processing time.
      Please let me know if you bump into any problems. ☺️

      TextformatterTypographer (0.4.0 Beta)
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      Learn more on my blog
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.
      Please do test it out and let me know what you think.
      Also note that I have indicated support for PW 2.8, but I haven't tested there as yet. This was built on PW 3.0.42/62.
