One opportunity would be to use a `label` element if it isn't a multilingual site and a `strong` tag if it is one.  What do you think?

Sounds good, thanks.

The idea behind this was that some textformatter like "NewLineToBreak" or "NewLineToListItem" doesn't make that much sense applied to an one liner input element.

True, but the textformatter that I'm thinking of is HTML Entity Encoder, which is important for any text field to avoid ambiguous ampersands or other invalid HTML. The string could be manually encoded in the template but more convenient to set-and-forget with a textformatter. :)

Hi,

Thanks so much - that makes sense... I've tried to combine the below in a lot of different ways but keep getting an error...

Any ideas?

Thanks

<?php
if ($image->caption){
    //Output markup 1
}
else {
    //Output markup 2
}
?>

<?foreach($page->images as $image) {
 $thumb = $image->width(1040); 
echo "<li><img src='$thumb->url' alt='$image->description'><p class='caption'><strong>{$image->imagetitle}</strong> <em>{$image->imagetext}</em> <span><br>{$image->role}</span></p></li>";}
?>

hi!
thanks for this great module!

today I experienced a strange issue when using this module with the Video Fieldtype Module
I get the following error when uploading a video, when the image extra module is installed:

<br />

I testes this in PW 3.0 with the newest versions of both modules installed.
Not sure why its even interfering with the video field..
When I disable the image extra module, everything works fine.

@jploch - I'd like to see a dump of $event after line 718 because $field is not an object and it should be.

That said, a quick fix might be to change the hook on line 97 to:

InputfieldImage::processInputFile

@Jon E 

Just use the comparison inside the foreach loop:

foreach ($page->images as $image) {
  $caption = '';
  if ($image->imagetitle) {
    $caption = "<p class='caption'>{$image->imagetitle}</p>";
  }

  echo "<li><img src='{$image->width(1040)->url}' alt='{$image->description}'>$caption</li>";
}

Or if you want to combine multiple parts: you can check every extra field individually and concatenate the caption before outputting it.

foreach ($page->images as $image) {
  $caption = '';
  if ($image->imagetitle) $caption .= "<strong>{$image->imagetitle}</strong>";
  if ($image->imagetext) $caption .= "<em>{$image->imagetext}</em>";
  if ($image->role) $caption .= "<span>{$image->role}</span>";
  if ($caption) $caption = "<p class='caption'>$caption</p>";

  echo "<li><img src='{$image->width(1040)->url}' alt='{$image->description}'>$caption</li>";
}

Hi there! And, as always, thanks for a perfect product!

Would like to discuss an interesting case. Let's suppose we have some images attached to different pages, each image having some extra fields including uid field which is unique. We have to build an api page which should receive requests like /api?uid=efv97yg and it should return some JSON about the image with that uid.

Is there any possibility to find an image by its extrafield value (e.g. uid)? Well, i know that we can do something like this:

$pages_ = $pages->find('template=page_with_fotos');
foreach($pages_ as $page_)
	{
	$images = $page_->images;
	foreach($images as $image)
		{
		if($image->uid !== $uid) continue;
		$json = json_encode($image);
		break;
		}
	}
echo $json;

But its not very elegant.

And even worse:

$sql = "select * from field_foto where uid=$uid";
$query = $database->prepare($sql);
$query->execute();
...

What is on my wishlist:

//pseudocode, will NOT work for sure!

$foto = $field_fotos->get("uid=$uid");
...

Will appreciate any advice. Thanks!

Just used this module for adding a video link to images. There was a glitch that there was no indication on the thumbnails whether there is a link added or not, so I put together a small js/css combo to add an icon:

has-video.thumb.gif.6e88144313e59ece60e44535eb9dda44.gif

Here is the corresponding code - dirty but works :)

Spoiler

var fieldname = 'video_url_project_images';

function updateVideoItems() {

    $('.gridImage__hover.has-video').removeClass('has-video');

    $('input[id*="video_url_project_images"][value!=""]').each(function() {

        var $item = $(this),
            seekId = $item.attr('id').replace(fieldname, 'file'),
            $target = $('#' + seekId);

        if($target.length) {
            $target.find('.gridImage__hover').addClass('has-video');
        }
    });
}

$(document).ready(function() {
    updateVideoItems();
});

$(document).on('keyup change', 'input[id*="' + fieldname + '"]', function() {
    updateVideoItems();
});

.gridImage__hover.has-video .gridImage__inner::after {
    content: "";
    position: absolute;
    right: 2px;
    bottom: 2px;
    width: 30px;
    height: 30px;
    background: #333 url('/site/templates/images/icons/play-circle.svg') center center no-repeat;
    background-size: 30px;
    border-radius: 100%;
    border: 2px solid white;
    background-clip: content-box;
}

There are two different ways to get the label of any input Field:

echo "This is the field label: {$page->fields->get("simple_slider")->label}";
echo "This is the field label: {$page->fields->get("simple_slider")->getLabel()}";

Let's pretend I added to my image field an extra field "location" with the label "This was in:". So if I want the value of the "location" field I do it like this:

echo "This is was in: {$page->simple_slider->location}";
// Outputs "Barcelona"

How can I get the LABEL of the location field?

Something like:

// not working code:
echo "{$page->fields->get("simple_slider")->location->getLabel()}: {$page->simple_slider->location}";
// Should output "This was in: Barcelona"

Hi,

since extra fields aren't regular ProcessWire fields you cannot access the labels using `->getLabel()` method or `->label` property.
The extra field labels are saved in the regarding field settings (table fields, column data) using json and looks like this:

{"otherFieldSettings":"{\"cf_label\":{\"cf_label__location\":\"Location\",\"cf_label__location__1012\":\"Ort\",\"cf_label__custom__1013\":\"Paikka\"}}"}

You can get the label using this functionality:

$fieldSettings = $fields->get('images')->otherFieldSettings;
$settings = json_decode($fieldSettings);
echo $settings->cf_label->cf_label__location;

As you can see there is no error handling or fallback strategy. Therefore I updated the module and added a method called getExtraLabel()

Usage example:

// outputs something like: "Location: Munich"
echo $image->getExtraLabel('location') . ': ' . $image->location;

// outputs something like: "Ort: München"
echo $image->getExtraLabel('location', 'de') . ': ' . $image->location;

Thanks @mr-fan: there was a little bug figuring out, whether the user is working in the backend or not (differentiate between int(0) und false :D ). The belonging JavaScript file wasn't loaded.

Thank you for the module!

I'm using it to add a Markdown enhanced captions for some blog images. I have a problem - the text is processed by the Mardown module only for the first image (in ProcessWire 3.0.72 multi language).
Could someone give me a hint about where to look, please? I'm stumped.
I'm retrieving them like this:

<?php foreach (pages('parent=8888') as $item) { ?>

    <div>
        <div class="uk-card uk-card-default">

            <?php if (count($item->images)) {
                      $item_image = $item->images->getRandom(); ?>

                <div class="uk-card-media-top">
                    <figure>
                        <img src="<?=$item_image->size(580, 384, ['quality' => 75])->url?>"
                             title="<?=$item_image->description?>"
                             alt="<?=$item_image->description?>">
                        <figcaption class="uk-text-meta uk-padding uk-padding-remove-vertical"><?=$item_image->caption?></figcaption>
                    </figure>
                </div>

            <?php } ?>

            <div class="uk-card-body">
                <h3 class="uk-card-title"><a href="<?=$item->url?>" title=""><?=$item->title?></a></h3>
                <p><?=$item->summary?></p>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>

<?php } ?>

OK, found the culprit, is the static variable

$alreadyFormatted

which is set to true at line 527 (module version 106):

525  public function formatExtraValue(HookEvent $event) {
526    if (!self::$alreadyFormatted) {
527      self::$alreadyFormatted = true;

I don't know its purpose, but in my case (a loop retrieving captions for an image from every blog post) it stops the text formatter from processing any item after the first one. So I commented it out, I'll see if anything goes wrong.

@geedamed I took me some time but I figured out, what the problem might be. I found a fix, but I do not understand exactly why this is happening. So if anybody could explain this behaviour, feel free to share it :)

 I added the `already formatted` check because in some cases the formatter was called twice (which could break the output). Let's define `in some cases`:

  • images are outputted on the same page as saved to
  • it just counts for the first/one image field

I compared the passed HookEvents. The only difference was that in the first argument, which contains the current Page object, the page title was missing.
So I added a check whether the Page object does contain a title, otherwise skip the formatter. I tested different cases (multiple images, multiple image fields, output from another page and so on). Seems to work – or every extra field the formatter is only called once.

Hi @justb3a I just found your module and I was wondering if you could add a cropping option field with all of it's values: northwest, north, northeast, west, center, east, southwest, south, southeast.

Very useful Module.

Is there a way to hide / unpublish a single image temporarily instead of deleting (trashing) the entire image + information?

A checkbox for this would be great.

Thank you.

@theo: Actually the core/module do support it in a way that's not immediately obvious or as straightforward as checking a checkbox, but it's still quite useful and worthwhile when you need the capability. You could use tags or any other image extra field to achieve this. 

  1. Edit any existing files/images field, or create a new one.

  2. When editing the field settings,  check the box to enable “tags”, or create a new extra field named “hidden“ or something like that.

  3. In the “tags” or “hidden“ field for the image (which should be unpublished), enter a specific phrase like “hidden" (tags field)  or “1“ (hidden field).

  4. Now you need to check if the file should be shown on the front-end of your site. Here's how you do that:

// tag usage example
if (!$image->hasTag('hidden')) echo "<img src='$image->url' alt=''>";

// extra field hidden example
if (!$image->hidden) echo "<img src='$image->url' alt=''>";

 

You could also send a feature request to add this as a core feature (so you do not need to check manually whether the image is hidden and as an extra bonus the hidden images would be visible at first glance using opacity to indicate that).

      Wire Mail SMTP

      An extension to the new WireMail base class that uses SMTP-transport

      This module integrates EmailMessage, SMTP and SASL php-libraries from Manuel Lemos into ProcessWire. I use this continously evolved libraries for about 10 years now and there was never a reason or occasion not to do so. I use it nearly every day in my office for automated composing and sending personalized messages with attachments, requests for Disposition Notifications, etc. Also I have used it for sending personalized Bulkmails many times.

      The WireMailSmtp module extends the new email-related WireMail base class introduced in ProcessWire 2.4.1 (while this writing, the dev-branch only).
       
      Here are Ryans announcement.



      Current Version 0.2.6
      get it from the Modules Directory Install and Configure

      Download the module into your site/modules/ directory and install it.

      In the config page you fill in settings for the SMTP server and optionaly the (default) sender, like email address, name and signature.
      You can test the smtp settings directly there. If it says "SUCCESS! SMTP settings appear to work correctly." you are ready to start using it in templates, modules or bootstrap scripts.


      Usage Examples
      The simplest way to use it:
      $numSent = wireMail($to, $from, $subject, $textBody); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody); // or with a default sender emailaddress on config page This will send a plain text message to each recipient.
       
      You may also use the object oriented style:
      $mail = wireMail(); // calling an empty wireMail() returns a wireMail object $mail->to($toEmail, $toName); $mail->from = $yourEmailaddress; // if you don't have set a default sender in config // or if you want to override that $mail->subject($subject); $mail->body($textBody); $numSent = $mail->send(); Or chained, like everywhere in ProcessWire:
      $mail = wireMail(); $numSent = $mail->to($toEmail)->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); Additionaly to the basics there are more options available with WireMailSmtp. The main difference compared to the WireMail BaseClass is the sendSingle option. With it you can set only one To-Recipient but additional CC-Recipients.
      $mail = wireMail(); $mail->sendSingle(true)->to($toEmail, $toName)->cc(array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com')); $numSent = $mail->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); The same as function call with options array:
      $options = array( 'sendSingle' => true, 'cc' => array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com') ); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody, $options); There are methods to your disposal to check if you have the right WireMail-Class and if the SMTP-settings are working:
      $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { // Uups, wrong WireMail-Class: do something to inform the user and quit echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; return; } if(!$mail->testConnection()) { // Connection not working: echo "<p>Couldn't connect to the SMTP server. Please check the {$mail->className} modules config settings!</p>"; return; } Following are a ...


      List of all options and features


      testConnection () - returns true on success, false on failures


      sendSingle ( true | false ) - default is false

      sendBulk ( true | false ) - default is false, Set this to true if you have lots of recipients (50+)


      to ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      cc ($recipients) - only available with mode sendSingle, one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      bcc ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

       
      from = 'person@example.com' - emailaddress, can be set in module config (called Sender Emailaddress) but it can be overwritten here

      fromName = 'Name Surname' - optional, can be set in module config (called Sender Name) but it can be overwritten here


      priority (3) - 1 = Highest | 2 = High | 3 = Normal | 4 = Low | 5 = Lowest

      dispositionNotification () or notification () - request a Disposition Notification


      subject ($subject) - subject of the message

      body ($textBody) - use this one alone to create and send plainText emailmessages

      bodyHTML ($htmlBody) - use this to create a Multipart Alternative Emailmessage (containing a HTML-Part and a Plaintext-Part as fallback)

      addSignature ( true | false ) - the default-behave is selectable in config screen, this can be overridden here
      (only available if a signature is defined in the config screen)

      attachment ($filename, $alternativeBasename = "") - add attachment file, optionally alternative basename


      send () - send the message(s) and return number of successful sent messages


      getResult () - returns a dump (array) with all recipients (to, cc, bcc) and settings you have selected with the message, the message subject and body, and lists of successfull addresses and failed addresses,


      logActivity ($logmessage) - you may log success if you want

      logError ($logmessage) - you may log warnings, too. - Errors are logged automaticaly
       
       
      useSentLog (true | false) - intended for usage with e.g. third party newsletter modules - tells the send() method to make usage of the sentLog-methods - the following three sentLog methods are hookable, e.g. if you don't want log into files you may provide your own storage, or add additional functionality here

      sentLogReset ()  - starts a new LogSession - Best usage would be interactively once when setting up a new Newsletter

      sentLogGet ()  - is called automaticly within the send() method - returns an array containing all previously used emailaddresses

      sentLogAdd ($emailaddress)  - is called automaticly within the send() method

      Call ProcessWire API Functions Inside STRING

      Current status : BETA
      Each called method must return string value !
      I added all functions, but not tested all. I focused page(), page()->render and field properties (label, description and notes). I also tested some basic pages() api calls.
      Your API calls must start with { and must end with }. For use multiple arguments inside functions, separate arguments with ~ char.
      NOTE If you pass directly arguments to api {page(title)}, this call will check for requestedApiCall()->get(arguments).

      This module corrects a few things that I find awkward about the "Add New Template" workflow in the PW admin. I opened a wishlist topic a while back because it would good to resolve some of these things in the core, but this module is a stopgap for now.
      Originally I was going to share these as a few standalone hooks, but decided to bundle them together in a configurable module instead. This module should be considered alpha until it has gone through some more testing.
      Add Template Enhancements
      Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.

      Features
      Derive template label from name: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. When one or more new templates are added in admin a label is derived automatically from the name. There are options for underscore/hyphen replacement and capitalisation of the label. Edit template after add: when adding only a single template, the template is automatically opened for editing after it is added. Copy field contexts when cloning: this copies the field contexts (a.k.a. overrides such as column width, label and description) from the source template to the new template when using the "Duplicate/clone this template?" feature on the Advanced tab. Copy field contexts when duplicating fields: this copies the field contexts if you select the "Duplicate fields used by another template" option when adding a new template. Usage
      Install the Add Template Enhancements module.
      Configure the module settings according to what suits you.

      Hi,
      I've put in a support request (as a followup on an existing one) for this but it's nearly 10pm Ryan's time, so I thought I'd ask on here just in case someone can help...
      Yesterday we purchased ProDrafts, but I couldn't get the key to validate. Every time I hit submit on the module settings screen the key would be removed from the field I entered it in, and then it would complain about the missing value. I put in a support request and Ryan responded last night. It turned out it was because we're behind a proxy/firewall. He gave me a fix to get around that issue - some code to go into admin.php. I put that code in and saved admin.php, but now I can't even get into our admin anymore!
      (Just to clarify, I took the code back out and saved admin.php but that made no difference. It's definitely not the new code causing the error.)
      The errors relate to a lack of permission on the ProDrafts module (see attached screenshot). We do have a key, but evidently the code Ryan gave me to add the key in via admin.php isn't taking effect before the error is thrown...?
      I tried removing the ProDrafts directory from the modules directory, but that hasn't helped.
      Is there a hook I can put in somewhere to tell it not to load ProDrafts at all, or not check the permissions? Or is there some way to manually uninstall it from the file system?
      Thanks!

      I just made a textformatter module that allows you to insert dummy content (lorem ipsum style) in text fields via shortcodes.
      Usage is simple - just type for example [dc3] into a textarea with this textformatter applied (plain textarea or CKEditor) and it will be replaced at runtime by 3 paragraphs of dummy content. It can also be used to populate text fields (for headings etc) using e.g. [dc4w]. This will produce 4 words (rather than paragraphs) at runtime.
      The actual content comes from an included 'dummytext.txt' file containing 50 paragraphs of 'Lorem ipsum' from lipsum.com. The 50 paragraphs is arbitrary - it could be 10 or 100 or anything in between, and the contents of that file can be changed for your own filler text if you wish.
      The slightly clever bit is that for any given page, the same content will be returned for the same tag, but the more paragraphs available in 'dummytext.txt', the less likely it is that two pages will get the same content (very roughly speaking - it's actually based on the page ID) so content selection is determinate rather than random, even though only the tags are saved to the db.
      Update
      Tags now work like this -
      [dc3] - Show 3 paragraphs ([dc:3], [dc3p] & [dc:3p] all do the same). [dc3-6] - Show 3 to 6 paragraphs randomly per page load ([dc:3-6], [dc3-6p] & [dc:3-6p] all do the same). [dc3w] - Show 3 words ([dc:3w] does the same). [dc3-6w] - Show 3 to 6 words randomly per page load ([dc:3-6w] does the same). <End update on tags.>
      If you think it might be useful, you can download it from GitHub and give it a try.
