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.

      Hi all,
      I'm a new to website building. Learned some CRASH course of js,jquery,php. Then I found CMS. Still learning around forum, youtube....
      Anyway, please help me with some beginer questions:
      1, About template - please correct me if I understand wrong : every page should be (or recommended) built on a template. So if in total I'll have 10 pages, 2 of them have same layout, I'll need 9 templates.  And, what fields a page includes, is not defined in page, but defined in the template that page uses. 
      2,  Where to see what modules I've installed? is it in "Modules - Site"? 
      3, I installed "PageTable Extended", then what?  As in a youtube tutorial, it should appear in Setup tab, but it doesn't.  What's in there: templates,fields,logs,comments. (I installed "Uikit 3 site_blog profile".)
      4, I did a search in Processwire website for the famous "repeater matrix" module, and can not find it, there's a Repeater, as well as a Matrix. Is it not a module?
      5, I watched this youtube tuts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHqnLQy9R1A
      Anybody familiar with this tuts please help: 
      After he analysed a target webpage layout he wanted to mimic, he created some fields, some template, then based on those he created a page and input some "content" in there, then clicked "view", it's just some text. So, here comes my question, he copied a folder "assets" (subfolders are: css,fonts,js,img) over, then the page have the appearance/layout he wanted to mimic. Where does that assets folder come from?
      Appreciate any help.

      I've created a set of modules for importing (manipulating and displaying) data from external resources. A key requirement was to handle large (100k+) number of pages easily.
      Main features
      import data from CSV and XML sources in the background (using Tasker) purge, update or overwrite existing pages using selectors user configurable input <-> field mappings on-the-fly data conversion and composition (e.g. joining CSV columns into a single field) download external resources (files, images) during import handle page references by any (even numeric) fields How it works
      You can upload CSV or XML files to DataSet pages and specify import rules in their description.
      The module imports the content of the file and creates/updates child pages automatically.
      How to use it
      Create a DataSet page that stores the source file. The file's description field specifies how the import should be done:
      After saving the DataSet page an import button should appear below the file description.

      When you start the import the DataSet module creates a task (executed by Tasker) that will import the data in the background.
      You can monitor its execution and check its logs for errors.

      See the module's wiki for more details.
      The module was already used in three projects to import and handle large XML and CSV datasets. It has some rough edges and I'm sure it needs improvement so comments are welcome.

      Pages At Bottom
      Keeps selected pages at the bottom of their siblings.
      A "bottom page" will stay at the bottom even if it is drag-sorted to a different location or another page is drag-sorted below it (after Page List is refreshed the bottom page will still be at the bottom).
      Newly added sibling pages will not appear below a bottom page.
      The module also prevents the API methods $pages->sort() and $pages->insertAfter() from affecting the position of bottom pages.
      Note: the module only works when the sort setting for children on the parent page/template is "Manual drag-n-drop".
      Why?
      Because you want some pages to always be at the bottom of their siblings for one reason or another. And someone requested it. 🙂
      Usage
      Install the Pages At Bottom module.
      Select one or more pages to keep at the bottom of their siblings. If you select more than one bottom page per parent then their sort order in the page list will be the same as the sort order in the module config.

      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.
