Repeater Images

Adds options to modify Repeater fields to make them convenient for "page-per-image" usage. Using a page-per-image approach allows for additional fields to be associated with each image, to record things such as photographer, date, license, links, etc.

When Repeater Images is enabled for a Repeater field the module changes the appearance of the Repeater inputfield to be similar (but not identical) to an Images field. The collapsed view shows a thumbnail for each Repeater item, and items can be expanded for field editing.

Installation

Install the Repeater Images module.

Setup

  • Create an image field to use in the Repeater field. Recommended settings for the image field are "Maximum files allowed" set to 1 and "Formatted value" set to "Single item (null if empty)".
  • Create a Repeater field. Add the image field to the Repeater. If you want additional fields in the Repeater create and add these also.

Repeater Images configuration

  • Tick the "Activate Repeater Images for this Repeater field" checkbox.
  • In the "Image field within Repeater" dropdown select the single image field. You must save the Repeater field settings to see any newly added Image fields in the dropdown.
  • Adjust the image thumbnail height if you want (unlike the core Images field there is no slider to change thumbnail height within Page Edit).

Note: the depth option for Repeater fields is not compatible with the Repeater Images module.

Image uploads feature

There is a checkbox to activate image uploads. This feature allows users to quickly and easily add images to the Repeater Images field by uploading them to an adjacent "upload" field.

To use this feature you must add the image field selected in the Repeater Images config to the template of the page containing the Repeater Images field - immediately above or below the Repeater Images field would be a good position.

It's recommended to set the label for this field in template context to "Upload images" or similar, and set the visibility of the field to "Closed" so that it takes up less room when it's not being used. Note that when you drag images to a closed Images field it will automatically open. You don't need to worry about the "Maximum files allowed" setting because the Repeater Images module overrides this for the upload field.

New Repeater items will be created from the images uploaded to the upload field when the page is saved. The user can add descriptions and tags to the images while they are still in the upload field and these will be retained in the Repeater items. Images are automatically deleted from the upload field when the page is saved.

Tips

  • The "Use accordion mode?" option in the Repeater field settings is useful for keeping the inputfield compact, with only one image item open for editing at a time.
  • The "Repeater item labels" setting determines what is shown in the thumbnail overlay on hover. Example for an image field named "image":
{image.basename} ({image.width}x{image.height})

Very nice.

For context, this is like custom fields for images by using repeaters.

This request for custom fields for images natively is one that is open, and slated for core one day:
https://github.com/processwire/processwire-requests/issues/21

https://processwire.com/about/roadmap/

Quote

Add support for custom properties in file/image fields. Currently just description and tags are supported, but it's clear there is strong interest in supporting more here, so we look forward to adding this.

Thanks for this!! I think this is one thing that is much more important today because you have to add image credits to the site. So this should be part of the core.

Hi Robin,

Thanks for making this module.  Just wanted to let you know that I ran into an error when I tried to export a repeater field:

Let me know if I can provide any other information.

      Hi,
      I'm facing a strang problem. In my template I'm setting different sizes for srcset:
      $view->set('images', $page->picture); <img srcset="{$img->size(780,0)->url} 780w, {$img->size(1024,0)->url} 1024w, {$img->size(1440,0)->url} 1440w" src="{$img->url}" class="col__image"> All fine. However, the moment I reorder images in backend the different generated image sizes are broken.
      Does somebody has an idea what could cause it? 
      Version: ProcessWire 3.0.123 
       
      Thanks!

      If you are interested, you can test the current state of development:
      https://github.com/gadgetto/SnipWire
      Please note that the software is not yet intended for use in a production system (alpha version).
      If you like, you can also submit feature requests and suggestions for improvement. I also accept pull requests.
      ---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      (please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about)

      Update 31.7.2019: AdminBar is now maintained by @teppo. Modules directory entry has been updated, as well as the "grab the code" link below.
      ***
      Latest screencast: http://www.screencas...73-ab3ba1fea30c
      Grab the code: https://github.com/teppokoivula/AdminBar
      ***
      I put this Adminbar thingy (from here: http://processwire.c...topic,50.0.html) to modules section and to it's own topic.
      I recorded quick and messy screencast (really, my first screencast ever) to show what I have made so far. You can see it from here: http://www.screencas...18-1bc0d49841b4
      When the modal goes off, I click on the "dark side". I make it so fast on screencast, so it might seem a little bit confusing. Current way is, that you can edit, go back to see the site (without saving anything), continue editing and save. After that you still have the edit window, but if you click "dark side" after saving, then the whole page will be reloaded and you see new edits live.
      I am not sure if that is best way: there are some strengths in this thinking, but it is probably better that after saving there shouldn't be a possibility to continue editing. It might confuse because then if you make edits, click on dark side -> *page refresh* -> You lose your edits.
      ***
      When I get my "starting module" from Ryan, I will turn this into real module. Now I had to make some little tweaks to ProcessPageEdit.module (to keep modal after form submits). These probably won't hurt anything:
      if($this->redirectUrl) $this->session->redirect($this->redirectUrl); if(!empty($_GET['modal'])) $this->session->redirect("./?id={$this->page->id}&modal=true"); // NEW LINE else $this->session->redirect("./?id={$this->page->id}");   and...
      if(!empty($_GET['modal'])) { $form->attr('action', './?id=' . $this->id . '&modal=true'); } else { $form->attr('action', './?id=' . $this->id); // OLD LINE }

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.54
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy! :)
