Release: Thumbnails

Recommended Posts

I did run some local test, and I absolutely love it now! :)

apeisa & smd, thanks for the awesome module.

I think I will definately use it in a future projects, and in my moms gallery website now. Wohooh! ;)

Just tested again to see if thumbs get deleted, and they don't (after deleting image on page). What's the current state regarding this?

Thanks Soma for kind words. I also like how this turned out, very nice to use.

Just tested again to see if thumbs get deleted, and they don't (after deleting image on page). What's the current state regarding this?

This is on the "not essential, but definitely nice to have - will be done in next version". There is no promise or schedule for next version. Might be next week or next year. Depends on my needs (or someone else's needs).

I'm not sure if this is a bug or it's something else I've done, but I can't seem to remove an image description. I can alter the text but not completely delete it.

Regards

Martin

This actually is a bug, but not todo with this module.

My Boss experienced it a few days ago, and I forgot to report... :)

You can only delete it if you put a space char inside the textfield.

Thanks Martin and Soma. Yep, it seems to be a minor bug in InputfieldImage or FieldtypeImage. When that bug is fixed there CropImages will get fix also, since these are inherit from those classes.

Antti - just wanted to say I've (finally) just started using this module and it's amazing! Great work! :)

The only suggestion I have is that it would be nice to have a way to make the configurations for thumbnails somehow able to link to certain templates, for example if I want a specific thumbnail size for news article images then I'm unlikely to want that thumbnail option anywhere other than when I'm creating a news article.

I know, it's not straightforward, but rather than make it too technical, I thought maybe this could still be specified in the same place, but add extra parameters on the end if you want it only available to specific templates:

thumbnail,100,100
portrait,100,150
largethumb,200,200
newsthumb,250,180,news_home,news_article

In the above example, the first three thumb settings would be available to all cropimage fields, and the newsthumb would only be available to the news_home and news_article templates.

Something like that anyway, and it's just a thought (although it might be worth somehow being able to specify fields as well as templates?).

I have had the exactly same thought when using this and I will probably implement that when first client project comes which requires this.

Or actually I was thinking about making it work with specific fields, but that template option seems to be even better. Thanks for the suggestion!

No problem :)

My first thought was making it something you can set per-template in the template settings, but that sounded too difficult and you would have to write some code when editing a template to check it has a cropimage field and then have a setting just for that. It also seemed too detached from the field itself.

My second thought was to define it per cropimage field as it would be a bit more intuitive editing it there, but I don't like creating duplicates of the Images field just for things like this where you'll only ever define different settings once or twice in a website's lifetime I think.

Which brings us back to the module configuration itself - seems to be the most sensible place and certainly the easier option to code!

Just a question.

How about making it possible to insert cropped images in tinymce too? Would it be possible?

It is possible, but not sure if I want to go there... :)

Antti, thanks for such great module! I've used it a couple of times and it's a great time-saver!! I've just found a strange error and I can't tell what's wrong. I have a laptop and a desktop both running Mac Os and MAMP (for a localhost environment). Recently I've exported my working PW site from the desktop to the laptop (via a mysql dump). Both machines are running the same files (via dropbox) and now have the same data in each of the local databases.

In my laptop local site I get the following error (debug on):

Fatal error: Exception: Fieldtype 'FieldtypeCropImage' does not exist (in /Users/......./....../....../wire/core/Field.php line 200) #0

The log shows the following:

: Unknown User:/?/:ProcessWire Error:Exception: Fieldtype 'FieldtypeCropImage' does not exist (in /Users/..../...../wire/core/Field.php line 200)  #0

.... and it goes on

The desktop machine keeps running the site just fine. Am I missing something here?

For me it seems like your install doesn't know about cropImages. Please try clicking check for new modules and removing modules cache. I am pretty sure problems are in how you have transferred the site? Do you have any other 3rd party modules installed?

It seems that way. The problem is that the site is blocked by the error (white screen with error message) this is the only module installed (3rd party) is there a way to uninstall the module like this? So then I can install it again.

Try removing files from /site/assets/cache/ There are modules.*.cache files that are safe to remove. Not sure if this helps...

Hey Antti - I just tried creating a CropImage field on the latest version of PW (2.2) and while the field shows up, the "Crop Setups" section (under the field where you can preview and define the crop area for the image) does not show up. Basically, it looks like a standard image field on the edit page.

I tried the following code in my template anyway:

echo $page->my_photo->eq(0)->getThumb('thumbnail');

And I get the following error:

Error Exception: Method Pageimage::eq does not exist or is not callable in this context

Any ideas? Anyone else had the same problem with this module in the latest version of PW?

I've just encountered the same thing.

It displays as a normal image field as you say and I get none of the crop links for my configured crops next to the images.

Fixed it. This just needs tidying up and putting into the source, but if you open InputfieldCropImage module and find the relevant function below and replace it with the code below:

protected function renderItem($pagefile, $id, $n) {

       $out = parent::renderItem($pagefile, $id, $n);

       $crops = $this->modules->get('ProcessCropImage')->crops;
       if (strlen($crops)>3) {
           $cropUrl = "../image-crop/";
           $cropStr = "\n\t\t\t<div class='ui-widget-content crops'><p class='description'>Thumbnails (hover to preview, click to crop)</p>". $this->_getCropLinks($crops, $cropUrl, $pagefile) . "</div>";
       }

       // We add our crop string at the end of the list item that holds image
       $out .= $cropStr;//str_ireplace('</li>', $cropStr, $out);

       return $out;
   }

Hey Antti (and others) - I went ahead and made it so that the module can now accept comma-separated lists of templates per thumbnail config.

For example, in the module config, enter a new crop setup called bigthumb like this:

bigthumb,320,240,home,search

The two extra parameters on the end are templates that this is applicable to. You can keep adding templates to the list to your hearts' content, and in this case it won't show you a thumbnail option for the images field on the basic-page template since you narrowed it to a specific list.

If you want the thubmnail to be available to all templates, simply don't add any more parameters after the first three :)

The code, oddly enough, is in the same function as my last post, so change that entire function in InputCropImage.module to the following:

	protected function renderItem($pagefile, $id, $n) {

	$out = parent::renderItem($pagefile, $id, $n);

	$crops = $this->modules->get('ProcessCropImage')->crops;
	if (strlen($crops)>3) {
		// If we've defined one or more templates for specific crops, we need to check the current page's template to see if we actually have any applicable crops to show to the user
		$page = $this->pages->get($this->input->get->id);
		$applicableCrops = array();
		$cropArray = explode("\n", $crops);
		foreach ($cropArray as $k => $v) {
			$cropItems = explode(',', $v);
			if (count($cropItems) > 3) {
				if (in_array($page->template, array_slice($cropItems, 3))) {
					$applicableCrops[] = $cropArray[$k];
				}
			} else { // Any non-template-specific crops are automatically added to the list for all cropimage fields
				$applicableCrops[] = $cropArray[$k];
			}
		}
		$applicableCrops = implode("\n", $applicableCrops);

		if (!empty($applicableCrops)) {
			$cropLinks = $this->_getCropLinks($crops, $cropUrl, $pagefile);
			if (!empty($cropLinks)) {
				$cropUrl = "../image-crop/";
				$cropStr = "\n\t\t\t<div class='ui-widget-content crops'><p class='description'>Thumbnails (hover to preview, click to crop)</p>". $this->_getCropLinks($applicableCrops, $cropUrl, $pagefile) . "</div>";
				// We add our crop string at the end of the list item that holds image
				$out .= $cropStr;
			}
		}
	}

	return $out;
}

If no crops are applicable to a particular template, it simply doesn't render the thumbnails box below each image.

Ryan did send me an email and warned that there might be problems with Thumbnails module on latest build. Haven't had the time yet to see what is needed to fix it, but it seems that Pete have done the hard work and more.

Pete: if possible can you send me an pull request in Github? This way you get proper mention on your contribution.

Happy to help :)

I'll do it tomorrow when I'm back at my computer (and can figure out GitHub again - I don't use it often enough to remember how it works ;)).

      PrevNextTabs Module
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/PrevNextTabs
      Processwire helper modules for adding page navigation within the editor.
      Overview
      This is a very simple module that adds Previous and Next links inline with the tabs on the page editor. Hovering over the tab shows the title of the previous or next page (using the admin's built in jqueryUI tooltips.)
      Usage
      This module is typically used during development where you or your editors need to traverse through pages for the purpose of proofing, flagging and/or commenting. Rather than returning to the page tree or lister, they can navigate with these links.
      Warnings
      If you are using PW version 2.6.1 or later, the system will prevent you from leaving the page if you have unsaved edits.
      For earlier versions, to avoid accidentally losing changes made to a page that might occur if a user accidentally clicks on one of these, make sure to have the Form Save Reminder module installed.

      Updating from Croppable Image 3 with versions prior to 1.1.7, please do this as a one time step:
      In the PW Admin, go to side -> modules -> new, use "install via ClassName" and use CroppableImage3 for the Module Class Name. This will update your existing CroppableImage3 module sub directory, even if it is called a new install. After that, the module will be recogniced by the PW updater module, what makes it a lot easier on further updates.

      Inspired by a recent question.
      Image Crop Ratios
      Allows preset aspect ratios to be defined per image field for the ProcessWire image crop tool.
      The module adds a select dropdown to the crop tool. Choose an aspect ratio and the crop area will be fixed to that ratio.
      Screencast

      Installation
      Install the Image Crop Ratios module.
      Configuration
      Default aspect ratios for all image fields can be defined in the module config. Aspect ratios for specific image fields can be defined on the Input tab of the field settings. You can override the ratio settings in template context if needed. Insert a hyphen as the first item in the ratio settings unless you want to force a ratio to be applied to the crop tool. The hyphen represents a blank option that allows a free crop area to be drawn. Usage
      Click the "Crop" link on the details view of an image thumbnail. Click the "Crop" icon at the top of the editor window. Choose an option from the "Ratio" select dropdown.
