[Solved] API image upload I need to replace instead of adding

Hi,

 

I'm trying to upload images from a folder into a page. I need to replace the images instead of adding. The image field already has the replace existing images turned on, but it doesn't seem to be enough.

 

My code:

foreach($files as $file) {

	if(substr($file, 0, 1) != '.' && $file != '.' && $file != '..') {

		// Get SKU
		$file_sku = substr($file, 0, 9);

		// Check for book
		$book = $pages->get('sku=' . $file_sku);
		if(!$book->id) {

			// Book doesn't exist

		}
		else {

			// Upload image into book !!! THIS CODE ADDS FILE INSTEAD OF REPLACING. HOW CAN I REPLACE?
			$book->book_images->add($upload_directory . '/' . $file);

			// Delete file
			unlink($upload_directory . '/' . $file);

		}

		// Save book
		if($book->id) $book->save();

	}

}

 

What am I missing?

I don't think that replace setting is honored by the API.

I don't think any of the image field settings are honoured by $pageimages->add(). Not "valid file extensions", not "maximum files allowed", not min/max width/height, etc. It's a shame as it means you have to do a lot of manual validation if using add().

Yeah, pretty sure you're right. 

Here's an old discussion about it in case you want to read some of Ryan's thoughts on the matter:

I had to handle this kind of validation in my AddImageUrls module, so the code there might be useful for anyone else needing to do the same: https://github.com/Toutouwai/AddImageUrls/blob/f67ebe9729fc54d629fe939be2f9d3e9c7f68c16/AddImageUrls.module#L118-L170

Hi,

Thank you for your help.

Here's what I've got so far and working:

foreach($files as $file) {

	if(substr($file, 0, 1) != '.' && $file != '.' && $file != '..') {

		// Get SKU
		$file_sku = substr($file, 0, 9);

		// Check for book
		$book = $pages->get('sku=' . $file_sku);
		if(!$book->id) {

			// Book doesn't exist

		}
		else {

			// Check if image already exists
			foreach($book->book_images as $image){

				// Remove existing image
				if($file == $image) {
					$book->book_images->remove($image);
					$book->save();
				}

			}

			// Add new image
			$book->book_images->add($upload_directory . '/' . $file);

		}

		// Save book
		if($book->id) $book->save();

	}

}

The only problem with this code, is that the new image doesn't keep the same order. It's always added at the end. Is there any way to make it load into the same position?

Note the mention of the new ->replace() method as well

@adrian thank you very much for your help, so far. However, it doesn't seems to be working:

$book->book_images->replace($book->book_images->path . $image, $upload_directory . '/' . $file);

Doesn't return any error but it doesn't replace the image! 😞

@adrian, thanks for your help. The examples given weren't really helping because the file name wasn't kept. For each time de file was replace it would add "-1", "-2" etc. to the file name. I managed to make it work and I am posting the code, in case someone needs something like this.

foreach($files as $file) {

	if(substr($file, 0, 1) != '.' && $file != '.' && $file != '..') {

		// Get SKU
		$file_sku = substr($file, 0, 9);

		// Check for book
		$book = $pages->get('sku=' . $file_sku);
		if(!$book->id) {

			// Book doesn't exist

		}
		else {

			// Check if image already exists
			$replace = false;
			foreach($book->book_images as $image){

				// Replace image
				if($file == $image) {
					$book->book_images->delete($image);
					$book->save();
					$book->book_images->add($upload_directory . '/' . $file);
					$book->save();

					// Place image in the right position: after previous or as first
					if(isset($previous_image)) {
						$old_item = $book->book_images->get($previous_image);
						$new_item = $book->book_images->last();
						$book->book_images->insertAfter($new_item, $old_item);
					}
					else {
						$old_item = $book->book_images->first(); 
						$new_item = $book->book_images->last();
						$book->book_images->insertBefore($new_item, $old_item); 
					}
					$replace = true;

				}

				$previous_image = $image;

			}

			// Add image to book
			if(!$replace) {
				$book->book_images->add($upload_directory . '/' . $file);
			}

			// Save book
			$book->save();

			// Delete processed file
			unlink($upload_directory . '/' . $file);

		}

	}

}
