image map backend editor (kinda)


Recommended Posts

It's been twice this year as a PW developer where clients have asqued me to have a way to put content on specific coordinates of a picture. Something like what image maps are made of. But not necesarly on links, sometimes text, sometimes images and links. 

So I've been thinking to build an inputfield for that purpose. But I'm not sure how could it be the most flexible so I can share it in github/modules page.

Ideally it would need to work like a repeater field where you start uploading an image and then adding any custom field like title, url etc. So the user could add multiple elements floating over that image.

Does anybody here know the ideal way to start the arquitecture of something like that? I could just hardcode the fields I need for the website I have to code this month but it would be nice to be something more flexible.

Does this help? https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-image-marker/

I have modified it to use the coordinates, but not show the marker on the frontend.

Otherwise, perhaps you could build in fieldtype around this https://github.com/maschek/imgmap/

Thanks so much! I never found something useful like that. I guess I was using the wrong keywords

      Select Images
      An inputfield that allows the visual selection and sorting of images, intended for use with the FieldtypeDynamicOptions module. Together these modules can be used to create a kind of "image reference" field.

      Integration with FieldtypeDynamicOptions
      InputfieldSelectImages was developed to be used together with FieldtypeDynamicOptions (v0.1.3 or newer):
      Create a Dynamic Options field. Choose "Select Images" as the "Inputfield type". Select Images appears in the "Multiple item selection" category but you can set "Maximum number of items" to 1 if you want to use Select Images for single image selections. Define selectable options for the field via a FieldtypeDynamicOptions::getSelectableOptions hook. See some examples below. FieldtypeDynamicOptions is recommended but is not a strict requirement for installing InputfieldSelectImages in case you want to use an alternative way to store the field data.
      Selection of Pageimages
      In this example the field allows selection of Pageimages that are in the "images" field of the home page.
      The field will store URLs to the Pageimages so it works as a kind of "image reference" field. You can use the "Format as Pagefile/Pageimage object(s)" option for the Dynamic Options field to have the formatted value of the field be automatically converted from the stored Pageimage URLs to Pageimage objects.
      $wire->addHookAfter('FieldtypeDynamicOptions::getSelectableOptions', function(HookEvent $event) { // The page being edited $page = $event->arguments(0); // The Dynamic Options field $field = $event->arguments(1); // For a field named "select_images" if($field->name === 'select_images') { $options = []; // Get Pageimages within the "images" field on the home page foreach($event->wire()->pages(1)->images as $image) { // Add an option for each Pageimage // When the key is a Pageimage URL the inputfield will automatically create a thumbnail // In this example the label includes the basename and the filesize /** @var Pageimage $image */ $options[$image->url] = "{$image->basename}<br>{$image->filesizeStr}"; } $event->return = $options; } }); Selection of image files not associated with a Page
      When not working with Pageimages you must add a "data-thumb" attribute for each selectable option which contains a URL to a thumbnail/image.
      In this example the field allows selection of image files in a "/pics/" folder which is in the site root.
      $wire->addHookAfter('FieldtypeDynamicOptions::getSelectableOptions', function(HookEvent $event) { // The page being edited $page = $event->arguments(0); // The Dynamic Options field $field = $event->arguments(1); // For a field named "select_images" if($field->name === 'select_images') { $options = []; // Get files that are in the /pics/ folder $root = $event->wire()->config->paths->root; $path = $root . 'pics/'; $files = $event->wire()->files->find($path); // Add an option for each file foreach($files as $file) { $basename = str_replace($path, '', $file); $url = str_replace($root, '/', $file); // The value must be an array with the following structure... $options[$url] = [ // The label for the image 'label' => $basename, 'attributes' => [ // An image URL in the "data-thumb" attribute 'data-thumb' => $url, ], ]; } $event->return = $options; } }); The field values don't have to be image URLs
      The values stored by the Dynamic Options field don't have to be image URLs. For example, you could use the images to represent different layout options for a page, or to represent widgets that will be inserted on the page.
      Also, you can use external URLs for the thumbnails. In the example below the options "calm" and "crazy" are represented by thumbnails from placecage.com.
      $wire->addHookAfter('FieldtypeDynamicOptions::getSelectableOptions', function(HookEvent $event) { // The page being edited $page = $event->arguments(0); // The Dynamic Options field $field = $event->arguments(1); // For a field named "calm_or_crazy" if($field->name === 'calm_or_crazy') { $options = []; // Add options that are illustrated with thumbnails from placecage.com $options['calm'] = [ // The label for the option 'label' => 'Nicolas Cage is a calm man', 'attributes' => [ // An image URL in the "data-thumb" attribute 'data-thumb' => 'https://www.placecage.com/260/260', ] ]; $options['crazy'] = [ // The label for the option 'label' => 'Nicolas Cage is a crazy man', 'attributes' => [ // An image URL in the "data-thumb" attribute 'data-thumb' => 'https://www.placecage.com/c/260/260', ] ]; $event->return = $options; } }); Field configuration
      You can define labels for the button, notices, etc, that are used within the inputfield if the defaults don't suit.

      Hi,
      I'm facing the issue where i have a repeater field with a multi language textarea (german & english, german beeing default). In german more blocks should be displayed as in english.
      The textarea field is configured as inherit default language if blank (I don't want to change this since it is the wanted behaviour for all other pages...).
      Now I want to access the unformatted value of the textarea field in the repeater and only show it if it is not empty. Something like this:
      $body = ""; $page->of(false); foreach($page->blocks as $block){ //blocks is repeater field, each block has title and textarea if ($block->textarea->getLanguageValue($user->language)){ $body .= <<<EOD <div> <div class='uk-card uk-card-default uk-card-body'> <h3 class='uk-card-title'>$block->title</h3> $block->textarea </div> </div> EOD; } } $page->of(true); print $body; However this doesn't work: Call to a member function getLanguageValue() on string.
      I also tried the other syntax for getLanguageValue:
      $page->getLanguageValue($language, $field) But I didn't manage to get a unique name of the textarea field in the repeater.
      I looked into the API of FieltypeRepeater but couldn't find anyhting that fixed my issue.
      Any ideas?

      I see old posts saying that repeaters are not the way to go in Custom Process Modules. If that is the case, when using forms (as I am trying to do) how would one tackle things like repeat contact fields where there can be multiple requirements for contact details with different parameters? (Like point of contact, director, etc) or even telephone numbers that have different uses?
      Just for background I am creating a process module that allows me to create types of financial applications in the admin area (no need to publish any of this, pure admin) that require a lot of personal or company information.
      Maybe I am thinking about this incorrectly?

      I was previously using individual fields to capture and output multiple cards onto my web page but after recently learning about repeaters would prefer to use this field type, as it will be a lot more user friendly for end users to create new cards. I tried to modify my code to grab the fields from the new Repeater field(s) but am getting this error message on the page:
      Here is the code I'm currently trying to use for the cards:
      <?php // https://processwire.com/api/arrays/ // check if the array of images has items foreach($page->tall_card as $card) { $count = 0; $count++; $options = array( 'quality' => 70 ); $image = $card->image; $img = $card->image->size(550, 400, $options); $cardHeading = $card->title; $cardBody = $card->plain_paragraph; $raised = $card->raised_amount; $goal = $card->goal_amount; $link = $card->link; if ($raised == 0 ) : $percent = 0; else: $percent = $raised_amount / $goal_amount * 100; endif; if ($percent <= 5) : $percent = 0; endif; ?> <span id="card<?php echo $count?>" class="card"> <img class="cardThumb" src="<?php echo $img->url; ?>" alt="<?php echo $image->description; ?> Thumbnail" /> <div class="cardBody"> <div class="cardText"> <h2><?php echo $cardHeading; ?></h2> <?php echo $cardBody; ?> </div> <div class="progressBarSection"> <progress class="progressBar" id="progressbar<?php echo $count; ?>" value="<?php echo $percent; ?>" max="100"></progress> <span class="raisedAmount"> $<?php echo $raised; ?> usd </span> <span class="goalAmount"> $<?php echo $goal; ?> usd </span> </div> <div class="primaryBtn"> <a href="https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id= <?php echo $link; ?> &source=url"> <button> <i class="fas fa-donate"></i> Donate </button> </a> </div> </div> </span> <?php } ?> Thanks in advance for any help!

      Coming from Perch (CMS) to Processwire, the one major downside I've found is that every place I want to insert content into my pages requires a single field (be that an image, integer, string, etc.). This can be a real pain to setup and manage if you have a lot of pages, many of them with dozens of unique fields. For example, on the Projects page of a site I'm working on right now I have to have fields for donate_amount (1-15, meaning fifteen unique fields that I have to duplicate manually), goal_amount(1-15), card_body(1-15), etc. After using Perch for a while, the way their system works is simply easier. You instead create your fields in a single PHP template (for every unique section, like a card) and their CMS imports those fields into the CMS when you choose to use that card, then you just fill in the values. You can also choose to reuse that card multiple times and each one you add gives you the several fields you need to fill in. So you can easily add your 15 cards, each with a picture, title, paragraph, and link, etc. and each one is basically given a unique ID that you can reference in your CSS files. If there's any way to make fields and templates work more like that, it would be a truly outstanding and efficient CMS. The great advantage of the way Perch is setup is that I can make a card with 10 fields, if need be, and easily duplicate that card out 40 times if I need 40 cards on the page and wouldn't need 10 fields for 40 cards (meaning in PW I would need 400 fields). If there's an easier way to do this in PW I would love to know, but as of right now, from what little I do know about the CMS 400 fields would be the only way to set that up, and that would be much more time consuming than if I could create one card (in PHP) with 10 fields that automatically added a number to the end of each field for each card (if that makes sense).
