Page Image Manipulator 1

Recommended Posts

Horst: Thanks for the very detailed explanation, It is just happening on the last image or two. It must be a PHP memory getting low (shared hosting account). I will use the PNG watermark method instead.  (thanks for the code example).

Update: my shared hosting account on this site is giving me 64mb of RAM memory limit. I think that might be the issue right there. I tried the PNG method of watermarking, but my site still hangs my server or larger batches 20 images@1,000px.

Have you tried to increase it in the .htaccess file?

Still looking for a workaround to my problem. I'm going to try running it on a slightly newer server configuration to see if it helps.

Does anyone know if would it be possible to implement this as a hook when I upload images using a certain field?

Hi, horst!

After updating PW to the latest dev yesterday, i've getting this on pimLoad():

Hello everyone,

New to PW and modules etc, so this is a steep learning curve for me at the moment but enjoyable

Using the code below I am getting images to display without problem, now I would like to add a watermark to the images

  • I have installed the PageImageManipulator
  • Have read through the postings on using it but still confused

Is the watermark image stored in the images file or does it have to form part of a template and page?

I have made a template called watermark

  • Should I know make a page called template and upload an image into it?
  • How do I get the watermark to work with the code below

<?php
$images = $page->new_images_field;
foreach($images as $image){

  echo "<img src='{$image->url}' />";
  echo "<br><br><br>";

}

?>

Thank you - Mel

@Mel: here is a post that describes how to use a watermark that is uploaded into a single image field (to make an image field a single image field you have to setup the field to only allow 1 file, otherwise, 0 or greater 1 it is a multiple files field): https://processwire.com/talk/topic/4264-release-page-image-manipulator/#entry41883

The general how to you can read in the initial post here in this thread:

* watermarkLogo

watermarkLogo($pngAlphaImage, $position='center', $padding=2)

  • param: $pngAlphaImage - mixed [systemfilepath or PageImageObject] to/from a PNG with transparency
  • param: $position - (string) is one out of: N, E, S, W, C, NE, SE, SW, NW,
    - or: north, east, south, west, center, northeast, southeast, southwest, northwest
    default is 'center'
  • param: $padding - (integer) 0 - 25, default is 5, padding to the borders in percent of the images length!
  • return: pim - (class handle)

You can pass a transparent image with its filename or as a PageImage to the method. If the watermark is bigger than the destination-image, it gets shrinked to fit into the targetimage. If it is a small watermark image you can define the position of it:

The $pngAlphaImage can be a filename (full path and not an url!) or a pageimage.

Example with filename, assumed you have uploaded a png watermark image per FTP to your server into a directory besides wire and site, called "_mystuff":

$png = $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/_mystuff/' . 'basename-of-my-watermark.png';

foreach($images as $image) {
    $watermarked_image = $image->pimLoad('tw', true)->width(500)->watermarkLogo($png, 'southeast', 0)->pimSave();
    echo "<img src='{$watermarked_image->url}' />";
}

An example with png from an imagefield, assumed it is called 'watermarkfield' and is on a page with the name/url '/tools/'. The tools page isn't visible from the frontpage, it is only a page that holds some fields and stuff that I need around the site on different places:

// assumed the watermarkfield is a single image field:
$png = $pages->get('/tools/')->watermarkfield;

// assumed the watermarkfield can have multiple images and I want use the first one:
$png = $pages->get('/tools/')->watermarkfield->first();

foreach($images as $image) {
    $watermarked_image = $image->pimLoad('tw', true)->width(500)->watermarkLogo($png, 'northwest', 0)->pimSave();
    echo "<img src='{$watermarked_image->url}' />";
}

Hello Horst,

Thank you for the instructions on how to use the watermarkLogo it works really well, I used the second example above using the tools page - which also taught me a bit more about how templates and pages interact with each other.

Thanks again - Mel

Hi Horst

Got a little problem.

I have just upgraded my server to apache 2.4 and, more importantly, php 5.5.9

On one dev site I am suddenly getting the following error - it was fine on the old server and older version of php:

Error: Call to undefined function imagecreatefromstring() (line 837 of /home/sanglier/public_html/site/modules/PageImageManipulator/ImageManipulator.class.php) 

What do you reckon?

Okay, ignore me....

GD wasn't installed.

Damn, I thought I had done that too.

@Joss: you should not use the PHP 5.5.9 - it has a buggy GD-lib, (if has a installed one  :P )

You should use one greater than 5.5.11!

You should run processdiagnostics when starting with new server setups. This one would have told you everything at once.

I'm trying to use this module to convert a bunch of png files to jpg. It works fine with a handful of images, but then it get's slower and slower. Here is my testing code:

$images = $page->images;

if ($images) {
	foreach ($images as $image) {
		$jpg = $image->pimLoad()->setOutputFormat('jpg')->pimSave();
	}
}

And here are the debug times in seconds - every number at the beginning of the line shows the loop count (it equals the number of images converted):

1: 0.21
2: 0.41
3: 0.67
4: 1.08
5: 1.96
6: 4.42
7: 12.79

In fact it's always the same image with a different name (1.png, 2.png and so on).

Anybody facing the same?

Hi horst - great module (I'm a bit late to the party ;)).

Here's an example using Apeisa's Thumbnails module - I had trouble with this because the thumbnail URL is relative to the homepage and therefore doesn't contain the whole server path to load the thumbnail with.

// First we get the thumbnail - replace thumbname with your thumbnail name as set in the Thumbnails module
$relativePath = $page->images->first()->getThumb('thumbname');
 
// Then we add the root path (note: will not work in a subdirectory - not sure about localhost either - you may have to hardcode this bit unless someone has an idea?
$fullPath = $config->paths->root . $relativePath;
 
// Now do your nice manipulations if the image doesn't already exist (we only want to convert it once)
if (!file_exists($fullPath)) {
    $modules->get('PageImageManipulator')->imLoad($fullPath, array('outputFormat'=>'jpg', 'targetFilename' => '$page->images->path . 'test.jpg'))->save();
}
 
echo "<img src='" . $page->images->url . "test.jpg' />

This was typed in the browser and my actual code is for a different scenario so this may require some modification!

EDIT: Of course, once you've generated the file once then you will want to check for that rather than keep recreating the file - modified my example to show this.

EDIT2: It would probably be a good idea if you are using this example to have a module that clears any existing test.jpg files on page save (or image changes but not sure how) for the relevant templates so that if someone changes the image the PIM runs again when the image is next viewed on the site.

Possible bug?

If I use it on a normal PageImage and use the targetFilename option, it creates a new file whenever the code is run, appending _1, _2 etc to the end of the targetFilename. If I run the same code without the targetFilename option it creates the file once and doesn't overwrite or create duplicates.

Basically I want to name my file in a specific way, but I don't want to create it each time or create duplicates - to achieve this I have to use the if (file_exists... code from my example in the previous post but I'm not sure I should need to?

@Pete: I'm not sure if I have updated the Pim after that post here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/4264-release-page-image-manipulator/page-5#entry60648

possibly not. So best you do not pass your options with the class-init but with the ->setOptions($options) method or with individual methods ->setTargetfilename ->setOutputformat,

Can you test it and report back please?

@Pete: regarding your "test.jpg", you only need to build a name that matches the new naming conventions of PW core Pageimage. That way all is fine because PW will do the dishes for you.

It takes care of all image variations belonging to an original image. You only need to tell the system that this is a derivative image. :)

The naming scheme now is aware of suffixes. You simply can use the original filename and add a suffix to it. (in fact it isn't limited to only one suffix, it can have multiple of them). Following the original image is named basename.ext

If you want create one or more derivatives you should go with this scheme:

      basename.-suffix.ext

      basename.-suffix1-suffix2.ext

following i change your above example in a detailed manner:


// define suffix, and fileformat if needed
$suffix = 'yoursuffix';               // allowed are: a-z 0-9 and underscore !! not more!
$ext    = 'png';                      // your desired outputformat

$image = $page->images->first();      // get the image
$info  = pathinfo($image->filename);

$dir   = $info['dirname'];            // dir to the page assets/files/ folder
$name  = $info['filename'];           // basename without extension
$ext   = $info['extension'];          // only if you want use the same fileformat as the original is !!

// build the targetfilename and the URL
$targetFilename = $dir .'/'. $name .'-'. $suffix .'.'. $ext;

$targetURL = dirname($image->url) .'/'. $name .'-'. $suffix .'.'. $ext;

$sourceFilename = $dir .'/'. basename($image->getThumb('thumbname'));

// Now do your nice manipulations if the image doesn't already exist (we only want to convert it once)
if (!file_exists($targetFilename)) {
    $modules->get('PageImageManipulator')->imLoad($sourceFilename)->setOutputFormat($ext)->setTargetFilename($targetFilename)->save();
    // or this way
    $modules->get('PageImageManipulator')->imLoad($sourceFilename)->setOptions(array('outputFormat'=>$ext, 'targetFilename'=>$targetFilename))->save();
}
 
echo "<img src='{$targetURL}' />";

.

.

Additionally, if you use Pia to assist you while developing a site, your code should ask her if you are actually online and like to refresh all images:

// Now do your nice manipulations if the image doesn't already exist or if you (Pete) are actually online, testing something and want force recreate images
if (!file_exists($targetFilename) || true === $config->imageSizerOptions['forceNew']) {
...
I love it when a plan comes together!    a-team-240x300.jpg

Hi, horst!

After updating PW to the latest dev yesterday, i've getting this on pimLoad():

Horst - I'm experiencing this at the moment and have found the solution.

I think the line in your module here is problematic:

$a = wire('modules')->get('ProcessCropImage')->getModuleInfo();

That line will run fine when you are logged into ProcessWire, but I think it somehow loads into memory the actual page using the ProcessCropImage process module which is only accessible by admins so doesn't work when viewing as a guest (that's the only crazy theory I have for now :)).

It's a tricky issue to track down, but basically replacing that whole block of code with this stops it from happening (essentially turning thumbnail boost off!):

// check if we can be used to boost the thumbnail module, - is it installed?
            if(true === ($this->thumbnailBoost = (bool)wire('modules')->isInstalled('ProcessCropImage'))) {
                // now check that at least the minimum version number of ProcessCropImage is installed:
                $needed = '1.0.2';
                //$a = wire('modules')->get('ProcessCropImage')->getModuleInfo();
                //$actual = preg_replace('/(\d)(?=\d)/', '$1.', str_pad("{$a['version']}", 3, "0", STR_PAD_LEFT));
                //$this->thumbnailBoost = version_compare($actual, $needed, '<') ? false : true;
                $this->thumbnailBoost = false;
            }

@Pete: thanks for tracking this down! ^-^

I have updated the module and changed the code by adding a check for the permission 'image-crop' here.

(this needs further investigation, here it is a quick solution to stop the error.)

If you can find some time, would you be so kind and test it if this work at your end?

Hi.

I've got some problems after creating an PIM image. I'm using PHP 5.5.19 and tried it on the current 2.5.2 and on the latest dev from this morning. Server is lightning.pw, so usual this setup doesn't make any problems. I'm using the default 2.5 image settings in the config.php

Task: First, resize the image to a given width, then grayscale() it and then overlay a transparent gradient.  Afterwards use it on different position in the HTML code. This is my function to create this image variation:

function getBrandImage($image,$width=1080,$prefix='branded') {
	if($image->name != '') {
	
	//$image->pimLoad($prefix)->removePimVariations();
	
	//Path to the overlay png depending on orientation
	$overlay_path = wire('config')->paths->templates . 'assets/overlay-landscape.png';
	
	if($image->width < $image->height) 
		$overlay_path = wire('config')->paths->templates . 'assets/overlay-vertical.png';
	
	//Output
	$o = array('outputFormat'=>'jpg');
	
	// apply it together with other actions
	$result = $image->pimLoad($prefix,true)->setOptions($o)->width($width)->grayscale()->watermarkLogoTiled($overlay_path)->pimSave();	
	
	}
	return $result;
}

It will create an image variation that has the desired effect. But now starts the weird stuff I can't figure out.

1) On my homepage, I'm calling this function with the default width of 1080 and I get back the PageImage. I now pass this PI to a simple function that renders and srcset html output by generating 3 variations of this image with the PW image functions.  This function works when I just pass a regular $page->image->size(120,120) PI object.

//Renders an image as srcset
function renderImage($image,$class='',$sizes='auto',$sets=array(400,767,1080,2120)) {
	$out = '';
	
	if($image->name != '') {
		if($class != '') $class = ' ' . $class;
		
		$o = array( 'upscaling' => true, 'cropping' => true, 'quality' => 40);
		
		//Start
		$out .= "<img src='{$image->width(260,0,$o)->url}' alt='{$image->description}' data-srcset='";
		foreach($sets as $s) {
			$img = $image->size($s,0)->url;
			$out .= "{$img} {$s}w, ";	
		}		
		$out = substr($out,0,-2);
		$out .= "' data-sizes='{$sizes}' class='lazyload{$class}'/>";
	}	

The $image here is the $result from the function above. It will create the first image in srcset (inside the foreach). The other images will output with 0x0 in the filename and are not created. 

2) On another page, where I need smaller images but only in 1 resolution, I'm calling the getBrandImage() function again but this time with width of 400. It will create the image but I think it crashes because the file permissions are set wrong, so the files can only be seen directly on a file level. 

I get the same results when I resize the image before I pass it to PIM or try different combinations.

When I just leave out the PIM stuff and create the image inside PIM with PW (and without the gradient/grayscale) everything works. That why I think this is an issue with PIM but I can't figure out anymore. The errrors.txt file doesn't show anyting. When I turn on debug, those messages appear. They don't appear when I comment out the PIM part.

Hi Philipp,

ähm, may I say that this sounds confusing? :)

It will create an image variation that has the desired effect. But now starts the weird stuff I can't figure out.

You only need to double check here if it returns a valid pageimage and has created the derivative file. If both is yes, PiM has done it work successful.

If you further do not call PiM anymore, it has nothing to do with PiM! - Ready!

-------------------------------

Looking at your code:

$out .= "<img src='{$image->width(260,0,$o)->url}'

What is width 260, 0, $o ?

You have done the same things wrong like in earlier posts. Passing a zero as second option to width, what should be an array with options! Ryan has changed pageimage::size to silently fail with this instead of crashing the process. This was a wish by yourself!

Another thing is that you has run into timeouts with imagesizer in the past. I have posted a solution to you and maybe over 10 times more here in the forums: include a set_time_limit() in every loop that calls imagesizer. ( foreach($sets as $s)!

There are two options for the set_time_limit() now: please add it into your loops or only use PW >= 2.5.10 in the future, because PW since 2.5.10 has an own set_time_limit() call in ImageSizer! :)

Thanks for the answer. If I replace the single line where I call PIM

$result = $image->pimLoad(....)->pimSave()

with

$result = $image->size(123,123) 

all the following functions and stuff works. Yes, you've found a bug/problem in the rest of my code (thanks), but my question is, why does it totally fail with the PI object from PIM and not with the one from PWire? I rewrite all those image stuff this evening and try again.

I'm using the latest dev build (2.5.10 the latest version on the dev branch as of yesterday 18:00 GMT time) and the time limit is 60 seconds. A try with 120seconds did also fail (with a single image at 2000x1333). Memory limit is 128M.

_

I never requested it fo fail silently. The problem was, that an error a developer could made in the past and that is now fixed, affects all future operations with an image because a half-way created image exists on the file system.

Hhm, it wasn't clear to me that you have encountered differences between Pageimages derived from Pageimage or derived from PiM. (or I may have overlooked it in all that examples)
 
I think it would have avoided some confusion if you just have asked / told that the objects behave different, without (partly wrong) code and lots of error messages.
 
You are also speaking about filenames generated with .0x0 in its name.?! Pageimage::size generates the filenames before any manipulatiuon through ImageSizer and only according the passed values for width and height. So, at that point you may check what values you are passing to the functions.

------

But lets focus on that objects thing:

I will try to replicate and compare that. Just to clarify a few things:

  • You have checked that after your PiM call a Pageimage Object is returned?
  • Have you tried it with a PiM that does other manipulations, maybe just pimLoad()->pimSave(). Does it behave the same or is it different?

Pim generates the PageimageObjects this way: https://github.com/horst-n/PageImageManipulator/blob/master/ImageManipulator.class.php#L751
It looks the same like Pageimage::size does it: https://github.com/ryancramerdesign/ProcessWire/blob/dev/wire/core/Pageimage.php#L316

 
So, we need to compare the objects, first try with simple objects that only should differ in the name:

$size = $image->size($image->width, $image->height);

$pim = $image->pimLoad('test')->pimSave();

And then with a manipulated one from your example.

------
 

I never requested it fo fail silently. The problem was, that an error a developer could made in the past and that is now fixed, affects all future operations with an image because a half-way created image exists on the file system.


Ah, ok! Sorry for remember me wrong!

Finally found time so rewrite the thing. In short, it is now working but I can't figure out what didn't work before.

1) My $size was set to 0. This was my mistake. The width() options just ignored the $options array.

2) I manually removed all pages including the image files and re-upload them. This made PIM PageImage objects work as well as the ProcessWire ones.

Sorry, this seems like a fault on my side. PIM works fine once you get the things around right.

Horst, thanks a lot for this wonderful module. It is extremely useful to me and I'm impressed by its complex possibilities!

I've got a question regarding the caching and rendering: While regular images are cached, those images I process using PageImage Manipulator seem to be recreated on every access of the frontend page containing the image.

Is this a desired behaviour, or did I just miss setting the right parameters?

Here's the code used in my template to output an image with added watermark on the website:

        $img = $page->special_image;

        // choose file containing watermark sample
        $watermark = $pages->get("/special/watermark")->images->first();

        // add watermark to image
        $imagewithwatermark = $img->pimLoad('tw',true)->width(800)->watermarkLogoTiled($watermark->filename)->pimSave();

		// output image
        $content .= '<img src="'.$imagewithwatermark->url.'" title="'.$page->title.'" style="height: '.$imagewithwatermark->height.'px; width: '.$imagewithwatermark->width.'px;" /><br />';

      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.
      Screencast

      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})

      Hello There Guys.

      I am in the process of getting into making my first modules for PW and i had a question for you PHP and PW gurus in here.

      I was wondering how i could use an external library, lets say TwitterOAuth in my PW module.
      Link to library
      https://twitteroauth.com/

      Would the code below be correct or how would i go about this:
      <?PHP namespace ProcessWire; /* load the TwitterOAuth library from my Module folder */ require "twitteroauth/autoload.php"; use Abraham\TwitterOAuth\TwitterOAuth; class EyeTwitter extends WireData,TwitterOAuth implements Module { /* vars */ protected $twConnection; /* extend parent TwitterOAuth contructor $connection = new TwitterOAuth(CONSUMER_KEY, CONSUMER_SECRET, $access_token, $access_token_secret); */ public function myTwitterConnection ($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret) { /* save the connection for use later */ $this->twConnection = TwitterOAuth::__construct($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret); } } ?> Am i on the right trail here or i am barking up the wrong tree?
      I don´t need a complete solution, i just wonder if i am including the external library the right way.
      If not, then give me a few hint´s and i will figure it out.

      Thanks a bunch.

      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 (has been tested up to v3.3), 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.

      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup and InputfieldRuntimeMarkup
       
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-runtime-markup/
      GitHub: https://github.com/kongondo/FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup
      As of 11 May 2019 ProcessWire versions earlier than 3.x are not supported
      This module allows for custom markup to be dynamically (PHP) generated and output within a page's edit screen (in Admin).
       
      The value for the fieldtype is generated at runtime. No data is saved in the database. The accompanying InputfieldRuntimeMarkup is only used to render/display the markup in the page edit screen.
       
      The field's value is accessible from the ProcessWire API in the frontend like any other field, i.e. it has access to $page and $pages.
       
      The module was commissioned/sponsored by @Valan. Although there's certainly other ways to achieve what this module does, it offers a dynamic and flexible alternative to generating your own markup in a page's edit screen whilst also allowing access to that markup in the frontend. Thanks Valan!
       
      Warning/Consideration
      Although access to ProcessWire's Fields' admin pages is only available to Superusers, this Fieldtype will evaluate and run the custom PHP Code entered and saved in the field's settings (Details tab). Utmost care should therefore be taken in making sure your code does not perform any CRUD operations!! (unless of course that's intentional) The value for this fieldtype is generated at runtime and thus no data is stored in the database. This means that you cannot directly query a RuntimeMarkup field from $pages->find(). Usage and API
       
      Backend
      Enter your custom PHP snippet in the Details tab of your field (it is RECOMMENDED though that you use wireRenderFile() instead. See example below). Your code can be as simple or as complicated as you want as long as in the end you return a value that is not an array or an object or anything other than a string/integer.
       
      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup has access to $page (the current page being edited/viewed) and $pages. 
       
      A very simple example.
      return 'Hello'; Simple example.
      return $page->title; Simple example with markup.
      return '<h2>' . $page->title . '</h2>'; Another simple example with markup.
      $out = '<h1>hello '; $out .= $page->title; $out .= '</h1>'; return $out; A more advanced example.
      $p = $pages->get('/about-us/')->child('sort=random'); return '<p>' . $p->title . '</p>'; An even more complex example.
      $str =''; if($page->name == 'about-us') { $p = $page->children->last(); $str = "<h2><a href='{$p->url}'>{$p->title}</a></h2>"; } else { $str = "<h2><a href='{$page->url}'>{$page->title}</a></h2>"; } return $str; Rather than type your code directly in the Details tab of the field, it is highly recommended that you placed all your code in an external file and call that file using the core wireRenderFile() method. Taking this approach means you will be able to edit your code in your favourite text editor. It also means you will be able to type more text without having to scroll. Editing the file is also easier than editing the field. To use this approach, simply do:
      return wireRenderFile('name-of-file');// file will be in /site/templates/ If using ProcessWire 3.x, you will need to use namespace as follows:
      return ProcessWire\wireRenderFile('name-of-file'); How to access the value of RuntimeMarkup in the frontend (our field is called 'runtime_markup')
       
      Access the field on the current page (just like any other field)
      echo $page->runtime_markup; Access the field on another page
      echo $pages->get('/about-us/')->runtime_markup; Screenshots
