Custom Upload Names


Recommended Posts


My settings: Enable fields -> images, Filename format: site-{$page->name}, Rename on save is ON.

If page->name = 'high-7' I lost one of file every save.

I fix it with: site-{$page->name}-### 

Now everything except lightning.pw works fine.

After submit new password on https://lightning.pw/login/change_password I get Safari can’t open the page “https://lightning.pw/login/change_password” because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection. This sometimes occurs when the server is busy. 

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the details. I think it must be a combination of the number in the page name and the "Rename on Save" setting. I am glad the custom ### option fixes it for you though :)

I still can't reproduce it here though, so just curious, what version of PW and CUN are you running?

Hi @adrian, 
I have another strange issue. Some of images has new file name on the server but old name on the page.
Maybe you have an idea why it can be happens and how is possible to solve this?

Are you still using the "Rename on Save" option? That is likely the culprit, although I am not completely sure why. Obviously I would like to get that completely reliable, but in the meantime, do you actually need it? If you are setting the name of the image based on $page->name and you don't have anyway of changing the name of a page when the title is changed (the default behavior in PW), then I don't think there is much point to that setting in your case.

Just to confirm, is it the name of the image in the images field, or embedded into an RTE, or both?

Is it random or can you give me a way to reliably reproduce it?

Dear Adrian, thank you for reply.
I use Rename on Save because I need it for API (for front-end photos uploading).
For this moment more than 100 pages affected, so I make copy from old backup and now copy each files back to actual server. (every page have 10-20 photos, so it's long story :)
But I realise moment, when all this happened.
I use this code to make changes for page field (I mean, field type page):
$chalets = wire('pages')->find("template=chalet, chalet_dining.id=13664, include=all");

foreach ($chalets as $page) {
			$page->of( false );
			$page->set("chalet_dining", 13668);
			wire( 'pages' )->save( $page );
			$page->of( true );
			echo $page->title;

After that all images on server get new names, but in database they still with previous file names.

And I wish you good luck with new Padloper!

Sorry, I don't have much time right now to test your page field scenario, but in general you shouldn't need "Rename on Save" to make it work for API uploading. I just tested to confirm, and everything still works for me when adding an image like: 


What happens if you don't use "Rename on Save" at your end?

I'd really like to help you debug this when I have a few spare minutes, but it seems like I will need to replicate your page field setup - maybe you could create a site profile that I could test with?

Padloper is actually by @apeisa, but I am sure he'll appreciate your best wishes :)

Let's leave this for the next week when my colleague, who take care about front-end come back from vacation.

Sounds good - please follow up with me when he is back - hopefully I can reproduce the issues you are having.

Thanks for the report @ukyo - sorry that you and Ryan spent time debugging this.

I have committed a new version which appears to fix the problem for me.

Could you please test and let me know if it now works for you?

If anyone is interested in what the problem was, take a read of the Github issue.

Hi everyone, I just added multi-language support to this module.

I use it with alternate language file fields for translated versions of PDFs.

In my example, I have these two fields:

  • document_pdf
  • document_pdf_portugues

I am using this filename format setting: {$page->title}

Now when I upload, the PDF gets renamed to match the title of the page based on the language suffix of the field, eg.

a page with these multi-language titles:

My Document Title (default) | Meu Título do Documento (portugues)

results in pdfs named:

my-document-title.pdf |  meu-título-do-documento.pdf

Please note that I am still pretty new to this multi-language stuff, so let me know if you have any problems or have ideas for improvements.

I got an error

Error: Call to a member function get() on a non-object (line 346 of DIR_\site\assets\cache\FileCompiler\site\modules\ProcessCustomUploadNames\ProcessCustomUploadNames.module) 

After installing 'language support' it works...

Sorry about that - it should be fixed in the latest version.

No sorry needed :-)

After reading ' multi-language support', I had the feeling the problem was somewhere there, just wanted to notify you about this....

It's a very important fix though - I wouldn't want to break anyone's non ML site if they upgraded to the latest version of this module, so very glad you reported this.

@JoZ3 - sorry about the trouble - what version of the module did you upgrade from? That curly brace was added for PHP7, and I tested on 5.6, but maybe there is a problem with 5.3.

I am sure I can write it a little differently to avoid the problem on 5.3, but just want to make sure that's definitely the issue.

Hi @adrian can you add support for CROPPABLE IMAGE 3 module. If i add croppable image 3 field to custom upload names filter, when i want to upload file upload progress not finishing. Also i will put this problem link to Croppable Image 3 module post, because i don't know which module causing this error.

I'll take a look, but can you first post a screenshot of your settings for this module and also any dev console Network tab errors coming from the upload ajax request?

Sorry for early post before check console errors. Its look like error causing from Croppable Image 3 module. When i check ajax request there is an error:

Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in /website/site/modules/CroppableImage3/InputfieldCroppableImage3/InputfieldCroppableImage3.module on line 139

Ekran Resmi 2016-10-13 18.52.36.png

Ekran Resmi 2016-10-13 18.52.23.png

File: site/modules/CroppableImage3/InputfieldCroppableImage3/InputfieldCroppableImage3.module

$attr['data-image'] = $pagefile->getCrop($suffix)->url;

I think the module can't get data, because name is changed.

Here is custom upload names module filter settings :

Hi @ukyo - thanks for those details. Unfortunately I can't reproduce the problem here.

I put this Tracy dump call just before line 139 (as reported in the error):


and it is correctly reporting the url to the cropped version of the file.

Perhaps there is a certain sequence of events that is required to trigger the error. Could you please detail exactly the steps involved starting from a new images field, including the crop settings you have configured for the field.

      This module lets you add some custom menu items to the main admin menu, and you can set the dropdown links dynamically in a hook if needed.
      Sidenote: the module config uses some repeatable/sortable rows for the child link settings, similar to the ProFields Table interface. The data gets saved as JSON in a hidden textarea field. Might be interesting to other module developers?
      Custom Admin Menus
      Adds up to three custom menu items with optional dropdowns to the main admin menu.
      The menu items can link to admin pages, front-end pages, or pages on external websites.
      The links can be set to open in a new browser tab, and child links in the dropdown can be given an icon.
      Requires ProcessWire v3.0.178 or newer.
      Example of menu items

      Module config for the menus

      Link list shown when parent menu item is not given a URL

      Setting child menu items dynamically
      If needed you can set the child menu items dynamically using a hook.
      $wire->addHookAfter('CustomAdminMenus::getMenuChildren', function(HookEvent $event) { // The menu number is the first argument $menu_number = $event->arguments(0); if($menu_number === 1) { $colours = $event->wire()->pages->findRaw('template=colour', ['title', 'url', 'page_icon']); $children = []; foreach($colours as $colour) { // Each child item should be an array with the following keys $children[] = [ 'icon' => $colour['page_icon'], 'label' => $colour['title'], 'url' => $colour['url'], 'newtab' => false, ]; } $event->return = $children; } }); Create multiple levels of flyout menus
      It's also possible to create multiple levels of flyout submenus using a hook.

      For each level a submenu can be defined in a "children" item. Example:
      $wire->addHookAfter('CustomAdminMenus::getMenuChildren', function(HookEvent $event) { // The menu number is the first argument $menu_number = $event->arguments(0); if($menu_number === 1) { $children = [ [ 'icon' => 'adjust', 'label' => 'One', 'url' => '/one/', 'newtab' => false, ], [ 'icon' => 'anchor', 'label' => 'Two', 'url' => '/two/', 'newtab' => false, 'children' => [ [ 'icon' => 'child', 'label' => 'Red', 'url' => '/red/', 'newtab' => false, ], [ 'icon' => 'bullhorn', 'label' => 'Green', 'url' => '/green/', 'newtab' => false, 'children' => [ [ 'icon' => 'wifi', 'label' => 'Small', 'url' => '/small/', 'newtab' => true, ], [ 'icon' => 'codepen', 'label' => 'Medium', 'url' => '/medium/', 'newtab' => false, ], [ 'icon' => 'cogs', 'label' => 'Large', 'url' => '/large/', 'newtab' => false, ], ] ], [ 'icon' => 'futbol-o', 'label' => 'Blue', 'url' => '/blue/', 'newtab' => true, ], ] ], [ 'icon' => 'hand-o-left', 'label' => 'Three', 'url' => '/three/', 'newtab' => false, ], ]; $event->return = $children; } }); Showing/hiding menus according to user role
      You can determine which menu items can be seen by a role by checking the user's role in the hook.
      For example, if a user has or lacks a role you could include different child menu items in the hook return value. Or if you want to conditionally hide a custom menu altogether you can set the return value to false. Example:
      $wire->addHookAfter('CustomAdminMenus::getMenuChildren', function(HookEvent $event) { // The menu number is the first argument $menu_number = $event->arguments(0); $user = $event->wire()->user; // For custom menu number 1... if($menu_number === 1) { // ...if user does not have some particular role... if(!$user->hasRole('foo')) { // ...do not show the menu $event->return = false; } } });

      Symprowire is a PHP MVC Framework based and built on Symfony using ProcessWire 3.x as DBAL and Service-Provider
      It acts as a Drop-In Replacement Module to handle the Request/Response outside the ProcessWire Admin. Even tough Symfony or any other mature MVC Framework could be intimidating at first, Symprowire tries to abstract Configuration and Symfony Internals away as much as possible to give you a quick start and lift the heavy work for you.
      The main Goal is to give an easy path to follow an MVC Approach during development with ProcessWire and open up the available eco-system.
      You can find the GitHub Repo and more Information here: https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire

      16.07.2021 // RC 1 v0.6.0 centralized ProcessWire access trough out the Application by wrapping to a Service https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire/releases/tag/v0.6.0-rc-1 Requirements
      PHP ^7.4 Fresh ProcessWire ^3.0.181 with a Blank Profile Composer 2 (v1 should work, not recommended) The usual Symfony Requirements Features
      Twig Dependency Injection Monolog for Symprowire Support for .env YAML Configuration Symfony Console and Console Commands Symfony Webprofiler Full ProcessWire access inside your Controller and Services Webpack Encore support Caveats
      Symfony is no small Framework and will come with a price in terms of Memory Usage and added Overhead. To give you a taste I installed Tracy Debugger alongside to compare ProcessWire profiling with the included Symfony Webprofiler

      So in a fresh install Symprowire would atleast add another 2MB of Memory usage and around 40ms in response time, should be less in production due to the added overhead of the Webprofiler in dev env
