Context-aware frontend editing to add images.

Recommended Posts

I'm creating this site where a 'motherpage' renders all subpages.  I switched on frontend editing to make editing as easy as possible to end-users. 

I'm stuck on adding images to the subpages.  The frontend editor suggests to add images to the motherpage (that has no images field on it, nor should it), so it asks for another page to add the images to/from. 

Is there a way to make the frontend-editor context aware so that it looks for images in the correct subpage? 

I already tried the 'type C' approach and added <edit field="body" page="id">, but that doesn't seem to do the trick.

      I'm using custom fields for images (as mentioned here: processwire.com/blog/posts/pw-3.0.142) for a specific images-field, the images of which need to have an HTML-caption. It works fine so far. Now I'm trying to import pages that use this field. I first exported some pages of that kind to see what the spreadsheet would look like. It seems to not separate the captions for each images but instead put all images in one cell and all captions in another.
      How could I go about importing these pages and assign the captions to the images accordingly?

      Hi Everyone,
      I wish to display a gallery of images from multiple pages on the site.  These images have custom fields created through page reference called 'furniture_list_type'.  Each image now has a radio button which has been selected.
      In  the example code below all images appear from the "gallery20", however the selector  "gallery20.furniture_list_type=3390" does not have any effect.  "3390" is the id of the page reference "chair" selected through the page reference.  I wish only images selected as chair to show.
      Hope someone can help with this.
       
      Thanks,
       
      Calum
       
      $imagePages = $pages->find("template=makers-child, gallery20.furniture_list_type=3390") ;                     foreach($imagePages as $p) {     echo "<ul>";     foreach($p->gallery20 as $image) {         echo "<li><img src='{$image->url}'>{$image->furniture_list_type}</li>";     }     echo "</ul>";      }

      Hey,

      so we all know about SEO and the importance of performance. Basically we do it, because if no one finds the website we just built, it´s frustrating. We all try to write clean markup, css and js code and most might have a webpack/gulp/whatever pipeline to minimize css&js.
      But when thinking about it, optimizing your pipeline might save you a few (hundreds) of kb, compared to loading an image with 1 mb that´s literally nothing and frankly just ridiculous.

      Don´t get me wrong, frontend pipelines are great and should be used, but let´s shift your "I will optimize the shit out of that 3 css lines" focus to something different: try to serve images as fast as possible, this is where the performance boost really happens.

      I´m no pro on processwire so far, but I built a very easy to use picture element, which some of you could find interesting:

      1. the picture comes with 3 different sizes: one for mobile (keep in mind the double dpi, therefore width of 828px), one for tablet and one for desktop
      2. the picture generates a webp version and the original file extension as a fallback
      3. the filesize of each element is rendered within the "data" attribute
      4. lazy loading(sooo important!!!) is done via the native 'loading="lazy"' attribute.


      Please try it out and see the difference 🙂

      I posted this so others can easily optimize their images, but I would also like to hear your suggestions in making it better. Maybe you could decrease the rendering time or maybe you have some easy improvements.

      Please let me know.

      Greetings from Austria!


       
      <picture> <source data="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->width(828)->webp->filesize);?>" media="(max-width: 414px)" srcset="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->width(828)->webp->url) ?> 2x" type="image/webp"> <source data="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->width(828)->filesize) ?>" media="(max-width: 414px)" srcset="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->width(828)->url) ?> 2x" type="image/<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->ext)?>"> <source data="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->width(767)->webp->filesize) ?>" media="(min-width: 415) and (max-width: 767px)" srcset="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->width(767)->webp->url) ?> 2x" type="image/webp"> <source data="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->width(767)->filesize) ?>" media="(min-width: 415) and (max-width: 767px)" srcset="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->width(767)->url) ?> 2x" type="image/<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->ext)?>"> <source data="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->webp->filesize) ?>" media="(min-width: 768px)" srcset="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->webp->url) ?>" type="image/webp"> <source data="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->filesize) ?>" media="(min-width: 768px)" srcset="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->url) ?>" type="image/<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->ext)?>"> <img data="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->filesize) ?>" class="img-fluid" loading="lazy" src="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->url) ?>" alt="<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->description) ?>" type="image/<?php echo($oElement->repeater_image->ext)?>"> </picture>

      so hello i am trying to combine my whole ass gallery with custom created watermark, i wanted to combine my images with simple text little opaque but that seemed harder and i couldnt make it work, well i cant make this work either, how are you handling watermarks? i would prefer if it would be plain PHP no imagemagick or some custom plugins scripts, but if neccesary i wont deny.
      so here's my code
      $pa = $pages->find("template=basic-page|art_gallery, images.tags!=''"); /* $pa = $pages->find("has_parent!=2,id!=2|7,status<".Page::statusTrash.",include=all"); */ echo "<div BRUUH class='row gtr-50 gtr-uniform js-filter' id='gal' >"; foreach ($pa as $p) { foreach($p->images as $image) { $obrazok = $image->url; $image = imagecreatefromjpeg($obrazok); $frame = imagecreatefromjpeg($pages->get('/settings/')->watermark->url); /* echo $image; echo $frame; */ # If you know your originals are of type PNG. imagecopymerge($image, $frame, 0, 0, 0, 0, 50, 50, 100); # Output straight to the browser. $img = imagepng($image); $options = array('quality' => 70, 'upscaling' => true, 'cropping' => 'center', 'sharpening'=>'medium'); $thumb = $img->size(400, 300, $options); $large = $img->size(1200, 0, $options); echo "<div class='$image->tags' class='col-4'>"; echo "<span style='overflow:hidden;'class='image fit'>"; echo "<a href='$large->url'>"; echo "<img class='uk-transform-origin-top-right' uk-scrollspy='cls: uk-animation-fade; repeat: false' src='$thumb->url' alt='$image->tags'>"; echo "</a>"; echo "</span>"; echo "</div>"; } };

      Hi, on a site I want to disable access to original images and only allow to access thumbnails and watermarked image variations.
      EDIT:
      A good solution for protecting original images can be found a bit down in this thread:
