New bug?

If the image field is loaded via Ajax then the click of the focus-link will be redirected to the homepage instead of opening the image in modal frame.

For explaination:

I have an image focus area field inside a fieldset. I have decided to show the content of the fieldset only if i click on the fieldset and the content will be shown afterwards via Ajax. In PW you can choose under the fieldset setting tab when to show the content (open, open only if there is content inside,...).

If I choose to show the content via Ajax the image focus area field doesnt allow to set a focus area. After clicking the link I will be always redirected to the homepage.

If I change the fieldset status to something without Ajax (fe always open) the image focus area field work as expected.

Maybe this could be a bug if other users have the same problem.

Best regards

Sorry, I have not tested this module in any recent version, but I recommend using the dev version in the thumbnails branch, some minor issues might be fixed there: https://github.com/phlppschrr/ImageFocusArea/tree/thumbnails

I have not looked into these new ajax features. Does anybody know of any thread here how to support ajax editing and loading for your own fields?

Please continue to report any issues and improvement ideas here (or even better at github). 

PS: Sorry, for being a bad module maintainer. I still have some plans with this module, but not enough time - too much customer work and a newborn baby at home.

Hi again.

In case anyone is wondering... this module doesn't currently work with the new image field upgrade in 3.0.17  :-(

As Ryan points out here https://processwire.com/blog/posts/major-images-field-upgrade

Note that other modules that extend the old images field (like those that provide additional crop functions) may not work with the new one. If that turns out to be the case, we'll likely move the old images field to a 3rd party module so that it can continue to be used for these cases.

Many thanks

Nik

Hi,

i had the problem today as Nik, when i tried to upgrade an old 2.6 installation to PW3.

Would be really great if this module could be upgraded to work with the new Imagefield.

Thanks!

Hi Interrobang - hope you are well

Have you had any thoughts on how this module might become usable in PW 3.x?

I'm trying to work out a way forward for sites reliant on this module, and it would be useful to know if there is any prospect of future development, so I can make an informed decision.

Kind regards

Nik

Hi Nik,

thanks, I am well :) Honestly I have not used my module myself for a long time, and I still have not looked into what has to be done to migrate this module to PW3 and its new image field. I plan to release a new version eventually, but can't say how long it will take. But seeing somebody still uses it at least motivates me to test it myself in PW3.

Sorry, that I cant give you a more satisfying answer. I will post back here after testing.

Thanks Interrobang.  Your module was mentioned in the thread for Horsts Croppable image module.  Using the focus of an image would be my preferred method for retaining flexibility, but I guess I'm in a minority.

i'm still voting for a solid and core solution of image cropping. using either an exact crop, or predefined ratios, or using a focus area and make it possible to get the right image for the right spot on your template/design and allowing different ratios!

but i guess we 2 are in a minority... 😉

Hi Bernhard

I don't think many people could have seen how useful this approach is. 

Fingers crossed for the future.

Until the change in PW3 image module it was my prefered solution for image cropping. Just let the user define the important part of the image and do the cropping in the templates. 

One solution for this would be the approach Ryan mentioned https://processwire.com/blog/posts/major-images-field-upgrade

Quote

If that turns out to be the case, we'll likely move the old images field to a 3rd party module so that it can continue to be used for these cases.

 

But i think it would be way nicer, if we had the ImageFocusArea function and all the the new features of the new image field.

I am really missing this module in version 3, are we any closer to an update?

I am having to make do with Croppable Image 3, but the crop settings require both width and height values, not allowing either to be flexible.

Without this module, I am now struggling to find a way to get an image cropped to a particular ratio, that retains the full resolution of the original image. ie - have a cropped image that is as good as it can be at a particular ratio. From that master, i would then make variants. 

Using CropableImage3 this is not possible - as all defined crops are pixel based rather than ratio based - and not dependent on the original size image. This therefore restricts the flexibility of generating a subsequent scaling of the image from the best master possible.

Horst's suggestion of uploading a large image to start with and cropping it to the right proportion at high res and then scaling, is impractical in day to day situations for my use, as you can't always impose that kind of restriction on your client's images. 

I had hoped that if I turned upscaling off, then perhaps I would be able to set a very large crop setting, and the cropping would just be made as large as possible. 

Anybody managed to find alternatives to the conundrum this has left, if you want to retain maximum flexibility in the automated scalings of your images. ?

Cheers

Nik

      Hello
      Till now I hacked something with the twig template but it works no more with new PW versions so I look forward to create a module. I am working on a site in multiple languages : French, English, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian. The new posts are entered in any language with a field for language. Till now, I got twig files to get the translations with constants defined for each part of the pages.
      So I'd like to create a module to include theses files added according to the url /fr/en/...
      Have you some observations to do before I begin about the direction to take ?
      Thank you

      Mystique Module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF
      Github repo : https://github.com/trk/Mystique
      Mystique module allow you to create dynamic fields and store dynamic fields data on database by using a config file.
      Requirements
      ProcessWire 3.0 or newer PHP 7.0 or newer FieldtypeMystique InputfieldMystique Installation
      Install the module from the modules directory:
      Via Composer:
      composer require trk/mystique Via git clone:
      cd your-processwire-project-folder/ cd site/modules/ git clone https://github.com/trk/Mystique.git Module in live reaction with your Mystique config file
      This mean if you remove a field from your config file, field will be removed from edit screen. As you see on youtube video.
      Using Mystique with your module or use different configs path, autoload need to be true for modules
      Default configs path is site/templates/configs/, and your config file name need to start with Mystique. and need to end with .php extension.
      Adding custom path not supporting anymore !
      // Add your custom path inside your module class`init` function, didn't tested outside public function init() { $path = __DIR__ . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'configs' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR; Mystique::add($path); } Mystique module will search site/modules/**/configs/Mystique.*.php and site/templates/Mystique.*.php paths for Mystique config files.
      All config files need to return a PHP ARRAY like examples.
      Usage almost same with ProcessWire Inputfield Api, only difference is set and showIf usage like on example.
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : testing-mystique */ return [ 'title' => __('Testing Mystique'), 'fields' => [ 'text_field' => [ 'label' => __('You can use short named types'), 'description' => __('In file showIf working like example'), 'notes' => __('Also you can use $input->set() method'), 'type' => 'text', 'showIf' => [ 'another_text' => "=''" ], 'set' => [ 'showCount' => InputfieldText::showCountChars, 'maxlength' => 255 ], 'attr' => [ 'attr-foo' => 'bar', 'attr-bar' => 'foo' ] ], 'another_text' => [ 'label' => __('Another text field (default type is text)') ] ] ]; Example:
      site/templates/configs/Mystique.seo-fields.php <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : seo-fields */ return [ 'title' => __('Seo fields'), 'fields' => [ 'window_title' => [ 'label' => __('Window title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a window title') ] ], 'navigation_title' => [ 'label' => __('Navigation title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'showIf' => [ 'window_title' => "!=''" ], 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a navigation title') ] ], 'description' => [ 'label' => __('Description for search engines'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXTAREA, 'useLanguages' => true ], 'page_tpye' => [ 'label' => __('Type'), 'type' => Mystique::SELECT, 'options' => [ 'basic' => __('Basic page'), 'gallery' => __('Gallery'), 'blog' => __('Blog') ] ], 'show_on_nav' => [ 'label' => __('Display this page on navigation'), 'type' => Mystique::CHECKBOX ] ] ]; Searching data on Mystique field is limited. Because, Mystique saving data to database in json format. When you make search for Mystique field, operator not important. Operator will be changed with %= operator.
      Search example
      $navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.show_on_nav=1'); $navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.page_tpye=gallery');

      This is a module I made as an experiment a while ago and never got around to releasing publicly. At the time it was prompted by discussions around using Repeater fields for "page builder" purposes, where the depth feature could possibly be used for elements that would be nested inside other elements. I thought it would be useful to enforce some depth rules and translate the depth data into a multi-dimensional array structure.
      I'm not using this module anywhere myself but maybe it's useful to somebody.
      Repeater Depth Helper
      This module does two things relating to Repeater fields that have the "Item depth" option enabled:
      It enforces some depth rules for Repeater fields on save. Those rules are:
      The first item must have a depth of zero. Each item depth must not be more than one greater than previous item depth. It provides a RepeaterPageArray::getDepthStructure helper method that returns a nested depth structure for a Repeater field value.
      Helper method
      The module adds a RepeaterPageArray::getDepthStructure method that returns a multi-dimensional array where the key is the page ID and the value is an array of nested "child" items, or null if there are no nested children.
      Example

      The module doesn't make any assumptions about how you might want to use the depth structure array, but here is a way you might use it to output a nested unordered list.
      // Output a nested unordered list from a depth structure array function outputNestedList($depth_structure, $repeater_items) { $out = "<ul>"; foreach($depth_structure as $page_id => $nested_children) { $out .= "<li>" . $repeater_items->get("id=$page_id")->title; // Go recursive if there are nested children if(is_array($nested_children)) $out .= outputNestedList($nested_children, $repeater_items); $out .= "</li>"; } $out .= "</ul>"; return $out; } $repeater_items = $page->my_repeater; $depth_structure = $repeater_items->getDepthStructure(); echo outputNestedList($depth_structure, $repeater_items);

      Cacheable Placeholders
      This module allows you to have pieces of dynamic content inside cached output. This aims to solve the common problem of having a mostly cacheable site, but with pieces of dynamic output here and there.  Consider this simple example, where you want to output a custom greeting to the current user:
      <h1>Good morning, <?= ucfirst($user->name) ?></h1> This snippet means you can't use the template cache (at least for logged-in users), because each user has a different name. Even if 99% of your output is static, you can only cache the pieces that you know won't include this personal greeting. A more common example would be CSRF tokens for HTML forms - those need to be unique by definition, so you can't cache the form wholesale.
      This module solves this problem by introducing cacheable placeholders - small placeholder tokens that get replaced during every request. The replacement is done inside a Page::render hook so it runs during every request, even if the response is served from the template cache. So you can use something like this:
      <h1>Good morning, {{{greeting}}}</h1> Replacement tokens are defined with a callback function that produces the appropriate output and added to the module through a simple hook:
      // site/ready.php wire()->addHookAfter('CachePlaceholders::getTokens', function (HookEvent $e) { $tokens = $e->return; $tokens['greeting'] = [ 'callback' => function (array $tokenData) { return ucfirst(wire('user')->name); } ]; $e->return = $tokens; }); Tokens can also include parameters that are parsed and passed to the callback function. There are more fully annotated examples and step-by-step instructions in the README on Github!
      Features
      A simple and fast token parser that calls the appropriate callback and runs automatically. Tokens may include multiple named or positional parameters, as well as multi-value parameters. A manual mode that allows you to replace tokens in custom pieces of cached content (useful if you're using the $cache API). Some built-in tokens for common use-cases: CSRF-Tokens, replacing values from superglobals and producing random hexadecimal strings. The token format is completely customizable, all delimiters can be changed to avoid collisions with existing tag parsers or template languages. Links
      Github Repository & documentation Module directory If you are interested in learning more, the README is very extensive, with more usage examples, code samples and usage instructions!
