Add Image URLs
Allows images/files to be added to Image/File fields by pasting URLs.
Install the Add Image URLs module.
A "Paste URLs" button will be added to all image and file fields. Use the button to show a textarea where URLs may be pasted, one per line. Images/files are added when the page is saved.
sharing my new module FieldtypeImageReference. It provides a configurable input field for choosing any type of image from selectable sources. Sources can be:
a predefined folder in site/templates/ and/or a page (and optionally its children) and/or the page being edited and/or any page on the site CAUTION: this module is under development and not quite yet in a production-ready state. So please test it carefully.
UPDATE: the new version v2.0.0 introduces a breaking change due to renaming the module. If you have an older version already installed, you need to uninstall it and install the latest master version.
Module and full description can be found on github https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImageReference
Install from URL: https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImageReference/archive/master.zip
Read on for features and use cases.
Images can be loaded from a folder inside site/templates/ or site/assets Images in that folder can be uploaded and deleted from within the inputfield Images can be loaded from other pages defined in the field settings Images can be organized into categories. Child pages of the main 'image source page' serve as categories mages can be loaded from any page on the site From the API side, images can be manipulated like native ProcessWire images (resizing, cropping etc.), even the images from a folder Image thumbnails are loaded into inputfield by ajax on demand Source images on other pages can be edited from within this field. Markup of SVG images can be rendered inline with `echo $image->svgcontent` Image names are fully searchable through the API $pages->find('fieldname.filename=xyz.png'); $pages->find('fieldname.filename%=xy.png'); Accidental image deletion is prevented. When you want to delete an image from one of the pages that hold your site-wide images, the module searches all pages that use that image. If any page contains a reference to the image you are trying to delete, deletion will be prevented. You will get an error message with links to help you edit those pages and remove references there before you can finally delete the image. This field type can be used with marcrura's Settings Factory module to store images on settings pages, which was not possible with other image field types When to use ?
If you want to let editors choose an image from a set of images that is being used site-wide. Ideal for images that are being re-used across the site (e.g. icons, but not limited to that).
Other than the native ProcessWire images field, the images here are not stored per page. Only references to images that live on other pages or inside a folder are stored. This has several advantages:
one central place to organize images when images change, you only have to update them in one place. All references will be updated, too. (Provided the name of the image that has changed stays the same) Installation and setup instructions can be found on github.
Here's how the input field looks like in the page editor:
If you like to give it a try, I'm happy to hear your comments or suggestions for improvement. Install from URL: https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImageReference/archive/master.zip
Eventually this will go in the module directory, too. But it needs some more testing before I submit it. So I'd really appreciate your assistance.
Thanks to all who contributed their feedback and suggestions which made this module what it is now.
Hi. I've been using Processwire for a few years now and installed it on a few different shared hosting servers without issues, but I'm now running into an issue on a Fasthosts shared server that I've not seen before. The installation goes ok and I have a working default site profile but I am unable to complete any uploads of images. It just hangs at the progress spinner during the upload. I thought it might be a priviledge issue so have temporarily set the dir / file privs. as 777 / 666 just to test that but it made no difference. I have no errors in the wire log. In server error log I have:
set_time_limit() has been disabled for security reasons in ....htdocs/wire/core/ImageSizerEngine.php on line 1035 and i note in the assets/file dir. where the image is being stored the date on the file being created has a year of 1970 and 0 length. If I leave the page this file disappears and nothing has been stored.
Does anyone know how I can enable set_time_limit if this is likely to be the problem?
Many thanks! Paul
EDIT: all development and discussion of this module has been moved to Module FieldtypeImagePicker which now contains all features of this module and more. This module will not be maintained any further. The information below remains for pure historical reasons.
I am happy to present my new fieldtype FieldtypeImageFromPage. It is made up of 2 modules:
Fieldtype Image Reference From Another Page is a Fieldtype that stores a reference to a single image from another page. The image can be selected with the associated Inputfield.
Inputfield Select Image From Page is an Inputfield to select a single image from images on a predefined page and it's children.
And there also is a helper module that takes care of cleanup tasks.
This module evolved out of a discussion about my other Module FieldtypeImagePicker. It caters for use cases where a set of images is being reused multiple times across a site. With this fieldtype these images can be administered through a chosen page. All images uploaded to that page will be available in the inputfield.
When to use ?
Let editors choose an image from a set of images that is being used site-wide. Ideal for images that are being re-used across the site.
Suited for images that are used on multiple pages throughout the site (e.g. icons).
Other than the native ProcessWire images field, the images here are not stored per page. Only references to images on another page are stored. This has several advantages:

Download and install this module like any other modules in ProcessWire Create a page in the page tree that will hold your images. This page's template must have an images field Upload some images to the page you created in step 2 Create a new field. As type choose 'Image Reference From Another Page'. Save the field. In 'Details' Tab of the field choose the page you created in step 2 Click Save button Choose the images field name for the field that holds your images (on page template from step 2) Click Save button again Choose whether you want to include child pages of page from step 2 to supply images Add the field to any template You are now ready to use the field View of the inputfield on the page edit screen:
View of the field settings
The module can be installed from this github repo. Some more info in the README there, too.
In my tests it was fairly stable. After receiving your valued feedback, I will eventually add it to the modules directory.
My ideas for further improvement:
- add ajax loading of thumbnails
Happy to hear your feedback!
Have been working with ProcessWire for a few months now, successfully implementing several sites. I am compiling data management into modules for our clients. Several sites are using those modules now. The modules are using RockMigrations to install fileds, templates and pages.
Today, I installed a new site. And now I am tripping over an issue that I cannot explain. Content on pages is organized in 'rows'. The users can add row by using RepeaterMatrix...then completing the fields to add data to the row. One particular content row has image fields. When I upload the images to the fields, all works as expected. The images appear in the RepeaterMatrix and I do find the images in assets/files/xxxx. But the images are not displayed in the front-end (see attachment). As you can see in the attachment, the various text and textarea fields in the RepeaterMatrix item are displayed correctly.
I have done the following:
Compare field settings to the existing implementations: they are identical Compare the RepeateMatrix settings and permissions to existing implementations: they are identical Change field name. No change. Delete field and created manually (including once with different name). No change. If I dump the element with Tracey, I get the following output:
If Max Number = 1 null If Max Number = 0 count => 0
page => "/processwire/repeaters/for-field-136/for-page-1/1574873590-62-1/" (60)
field => "wk_inhalt_start_links_bild" (26)
url => "/serverpath/site/assets/files/1046/" (30)
path => "/serverpath/serverpath/serverpath/serverpath/site/assets/files/1046/" (56)
items => array () I would venture that there is an issue regarding images on the shared server...but another content element on the site works just fine with images.
Bit stumped right now. Especially considering that I made the same installation earlier today on a different server successfully. I would appreciate any ideas on where to investigate this issue.
