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'>"

	<?php foreach($features as $product): ?>
		<?php
			$image_big = $product->getInputField('image_card')->getImage(); 
			$image_right = $image_big->size(250,250);
		?>

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?

Can you try to see what's going wrong? I've no time atm.

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,
      I am writing a custom module that requires storing array of settings in the module config/settings.
      Is there a built-in fieldtype that allows me to store settings in an array (sort of like Repeater)?
      I tried using InputfieldAceExtended and InputfieldTextarea to store JSON array. Both times, my data was stored in the module settings (in the database) but upon reload, that information was not retrieved.
      Thanks
      Rudy

      A simple module to enable easy navigation between the public and the admin side of the site. After installation a green bar will appear to the upper side of the screen, containing a few navigation elements and displaying the PW version number.
      Heavily inspired by @apeisa's great AdminBar (Thanks!). I needed a bit simpler tool for my projects and as a result, this was made. Available on GitHub .

      I've created a small module which lets you define a timestamp after which a page should be accessible. In addition you can define a timestamp when the release should end and the page should not be accessable any more.
      Github: https://github.com/Sebiworld/PageAccessReleasetime
      Usage
      PageAccessReleasetime can be installed like every other module in ProcessWire. Check the following guide for detailed information: How-To Install or Uninstall Modules
      After that, you will find checkboxes for activating the releasetime-fields at the settings-tab of each page. You don't need to add the fields to your templates manually.
      Check e.g. the checkbox "Activate Releasetime from?" and fill in a date in the future. The page will not be accessable for your users until the given date is reached.
      If you have $config->pagefileSecure = true, the module will protect files of unreleased pages as well.
      How it works
      This module hooks into Page::viewable to prevent users to access unreleased pages:
      public function hookPageViewable($event) { $page = $event->object; $viewable = $event->return; if($viewable){ // If the page would be viewable, additionally check Releasetime and User-Permission $viewable = $this->canUserSee($page); } $event->return = $viewable; } To prevent access to the files of unreleased pages, we hook into Page::isPublic and ProcessPageView::sendFile.
      public function hookPageIsPublic($e) { $page = $e->object; if($e->return && $this->isReleaseTimeSet($page)) { $e->return = false; } } The site/assets/files/ directory of pages, which isPublic() returns false, will get a '-' as prefix. This indicates ProcessWire (with activated $config->pagefileSecure) to check the file's permissions via PHP before delivering it to the client.
      The check wether a not-public file should be accessable happens in ProcessPageView::sendFile. We throw an 404 Exception if the current user must not see the file.
      public function hookProcessPageViewSendFile($e) { $page = $e->arguments[0]; if(!$this->canUserSee($page)) { throw new Wire404Exception('File not found'); } } Additionally we hook into ProcessPageEdit::buildForm to add the PageAccessReleasetime fields to each page and move them to the settings tab.
      Limitations
      In the current version, releasetime-protected pages will appear in wire('pages')->find() queries. If you want to display a list of pages, where pages could be releasetime-protected, you should double-check with $page->viewable() wether the page can be accessed. $page->viewable() returns false, if the page is not released yet.
      If you have an idea how unreleased pages can be filtered out of ProcessWire selector queries, feel free to write an issue, comment or make a pull request!

      Thanks to the great Pro module "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use this module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      With this proof of concept I have created a module which adds the feature to copy a repeater item to the clipboard so that you can paste this item to another page with the same repeater field. The module has been developed very rudimentarily so far. It is currently not possible to copy nested items. There is also no check of Min/Max. You can also only copy items that have the same field on different pages. And surely you can solve all this more elegantly with AJAX. But personally I lack the deeper understanding of the repeaters. Also missing on the Javascript side are event triggers for the repeaters, which would make it easier. Like e.g. RepeaterItemInitReady or similar.
      it would be great if @ryan would implement this functionality in the core of RepeaterMatrix. I think he has better ways to implement this. Or what do you think, Ryan?
      Everybody is welcome to work on this module and improve it, if it should not be integrated into the matrix core. Therefore I put it for testing and as download on GitHub: https://github.com/FlipZoomMedia/InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDublicate
      You can best see the functionality in the screencast:

      Hi,
      Please take a look at this:
      https://templatemag.com/demo/Good/
      The upper nav bar, including dropdowns like "pages" and "portfolios", what do you call this whole thing? At first I guess it's called "dropdown nav bar", but seems not.
      AND of course, what's the simplest way/module to achieve this in PW?
      Thanks in advance.
