I created this module a while ago and never got around to publicising it, but it has been outed in the latest PW Weekly so here goes the support thread...

Unique Image Variations

Ensures that all ImageSizer options and focus settings affect image variation filenames.

uiv

Background

When using methods that produce image variations such as Pageimage::size(), ProcessWire includes some of the ImageSizer settings (height, width, cropping location, etc) in the variation filename. This is useful so that if you change these settings in your size() call a new variation is generated and you see this variation on the front-end.

However, ProcessWire does not include several of the other ImageSizer settings in the variation filename:

  • upscaling
  • cropping, when set to false or a blank string
  • interlace
  • sharpening
  • quality
  • hidpi quality
  • focus (whether any saved focus area for an image should affect cropping)
  • focus data (the top/left/zoom data for the focus area)

This means that if you change any of these settings, either in $config->imageSizerOptions or in an $options array passed to a method like size(), and you already have variations at the requested size/crop, then ProcessWire will not create new variations and will continue to serve the old variations. In other words you won't see the effect of your changed ImageSizer options on the front-end until you delete the old variations.

Features

The Unique Image Variations module ensures that any changes to ImageSizer options and any changes to the focus area made in Page Edit are reflected in the variation filename, so new variations will always be generated and displayed on the front-end.

Installation

Install the Unique Image Variations module.

In the module config, set the ImageSizer options that you want to include in image variation filenames.

Warnings

Installing the module (and keeping one or more of the options selected in the module config) will cause all existing image variations to be regenerated the next time they are requested. If you have an existing website with a large number of images you may not want the performance impact of that. The module is perhaps best suited to new sites where image variations have not yet been generated.

Similarly, if you change the module config settings on an existing site then all image variations will be regenerated the next time they are requested.

If you think you might want to change an ImageSizer option in the future (I'm thinking here primarily of options such as interlace that are typically set in $config->imageSizerOptions) and would not want that change to cause existing image variations to be regenerated then best to not include that option in the module config after you first install the module.

      Hi!
      After temporarily using Module Image Extra, which I completely removed, I had some troubles with my imagefield (unused table columns).
      So I just imported a previous version of this column via PHPmyAdmin, which worked pretty well.
      Anyways, in Processwire Backend all image tags are gone, although they are OK in the database.
      Other image related things work (thumbnail, title etc are OK).
      Is there any way to recreate all the images or something? Or may this be an cache-related issue?
       
      Thanks in advance 😃

      A community member raised a question and I thought a new sanitizer method for the purpose would be useful, hence...
      Sanitizer Transliterate
      Adds a transliterate method to $sanitizer that performs character replacements as defined in the module config. The default character replacements are based on the defaults from InputfieldPageName, but with uppercase characters included too.
      Usage
      Install the Sanitizer Transliterate module.
      Customise the character replacements in the module config as needed.
      Use the sanitizer on strings like so:
      $transliterated_string = $sanitizer->transliterate($string);

      Hello,
      this module can publish content of a Processwire page on a Facebook page, triggered by saving the Processwire page.
      To set it up, configure the module with a Facebook app ID, secret and a Page ID. Following is additional configuration on Facebook for developers:
      Minimum Required Facebook App configuration:
      on Settings -> Basics, provide the App Domains, provide the Site URL, on Settings -> Advanced, set the API version to 2.10, add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "http://www.example.com/processwire/page/" to field Valid OAuth Redirect URIs. This module is configurable as follows:
      Templates: posts can take place only for pages with the defined templates. On/Off switch: specify a checkbox field that will not allow the post if checked. Specify a message and/or an image for the post.
      Usage
      edit the desired PW page and save; it will post right after the initial Facebook log in and permission granting. After that, an access token is kept.
       
      Download
      PW module directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/auto-fb-post/ Github: https://github.com/kastrind/AutoFbPost   Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is utilized.

      Hi,
      There's something happening in ProcessWire that doesn't compute abd it has to do with images.
      Situation:
      On the homepage template there's a repeater that takes two images to build a slider:
      slide_image: A wide image for desktops
      slide_image_mobile: A more "verticalized" image for small screens
      Now I have this code:
      foreach($page->home_slides as $slide) { // Create desktop slide if(isset($slide->slide_image)) { // Create desktop slide $slide_image = $slide->slide_image->size(1170,400); // Create mobile slide if(isset($slide->slide_image_mobile)) { $slide_image_mobile = $slide->slide_image_mobile->size(1048,800); } else { $slide_image_mobile = $slide->slide_image->size(1048,800); } ?> <div class="slide-content"> <a href="<?php echo $slide->link; ?>" class="slide"> <img src="<?php echo $slide_image->url; ?>" class="img-fluid d-none d-md-block" title="<?php echo $slide->slide_title; ?>" alt="<?php echo $slide->slide_title; ?>" /> <img src="<?php echo $slide_image_mobile->url; ?>" class="img-fluid d-block d-md-none" title="<?php echo $slide->slide_title; ?>" alt="<?php echo $slide->slide_title; ?>" /> </a> </div> <?php } } On my dev server, the small image is detected and placed in content, however in my production server this doesn't happen.
      I've double checked fields names and the fields contain images. I've even imported the database into the Dev Server.
      I don't have any clue why it works locally and not in server.
      Can anyone shed som light?
      Thank you!

      I have 2 repeater types working with the Repeater Matrix.
      To keep things simple, I have
      image gallery a downloads gallery. I can't quite figure out how to echo the contents from within a product_gallery. 
      I can get the code below to display the text 'An image gallery' but not the bunch of images within this.
      I'm not sure though if it's my variable trail or my nested echo statement.
       
      <?php foreach($page->components as $item) { if($item->type == 'product_gallery') { echo " An image gallery..."; foreach($product_gallery->images as $photo) { echo " An image <image src='{$photo->url}'> "; } } else if($item->type == 'downloads') { echo " A download gallery... "; } } ?> Thanks
