Thanks a lot for this modules. I used it in several projects and it always worked fine for me.

Today I ran into a strange bug. The Image Extra fields don't seem to be created in the database.

When I check the orientation field, or any other extra field it says:

SQLSTATE[42S22]: Column not found: 1054 Unknown column 'field_backgroundImages.orientation' in 'field list'

during page creation.

I looked up the the corresponding mysql table and yes, there is no field created.

could this be connected with the multilingual support? I set up a multilingual site on which english is not the default lang.

Thanks for your help.

@pmichaelis: I don't think that it has to do with the multilingual site, this always works fine for me. And it doesn't matter whether english is the default language. `english` is just a label. Could you please try to rename the field so that it doesn't contain camelCase (capital letters)? For example field_backgroundImages to field_background_images. Have a look at the description: "Any combination of ASCII letters [a-z], numbers [0-9], or underscores (no dashes or spaces)." I don't  know whether this is the reason but I would like to give it a try. 

Edit: Tested it using a camelCaseField without any problems. Using two languages "default" and "english". But my system is case insensitive  ;). Which PW version do you use?

Thank you! Your were right about the field renaming. Using PW 2.7.2. by the way.

Works like charm.

Thank you justb3a for a wonderfull module of yours! It is indeed a nice tool to use instead of a Repeater or PageTable when they are an overkill.

I got similar issue as this. I understand your answer below, but I wish I could not use multilangual fields, even if I have Language Support and 2 languages installed. Is it possible?

My sites are often unilingual, but I do create additional language for admin to be able to work in default English admin interface, as all support you can get is in English (or should I say American to honor the creator of PW). I found no other way to do this (is there any?)

I added an option to disable multi-language fields. In field settings for Image Extra Fields there is a new checkbox "Disable multi-language fields?". Please pull branch develop to get this new feature.

btw: branch develop is ProcessWire 3.x ready but it needs a  bit more testing before I'll  create a new release.

It took some time but now it's possible to use a textformatter e.g. markdown parser. This is only available in branch develop for PW3.x.

There is a little issue due to focus textareas, I created a PR to solve this.

How to use it: go to field settings, enter some other fields, save. Reopen ImageExtra tab, now you can see a table below in which you can define one textformatter for each extra field. All installed text formatters will be listet in this dropdown.

Is ImageExtra working in repeaters? I can't save the description and caption fields and also not delete the image. (see screenshot)

I use ImageExtra with an image slider on the same website and it is working fine. :)  But in this repeater it's not ...

So it seems I can't use an image in a repeater in this website?

(This would spoil the plan  :( )

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Update:

Not sure if this has to do with ImageExtra at all. The whole repeater doesn't seem to work. If I put text in a text-field and save: the text is gone after saving. Don't know what is wrong here ...

Update: 

The problem is that these field dependencies don't work in repeaters. 

Sorry for blaming the Module  :rolleyes:

Thanks for the great work!

hi @Henrik, glad you figured out yourself what caused the problem. I just wanted to test images in repeaters again. But I've got a lot of pages out there which are using images containing image extra fields inside repeaters!

I don't know if this is a known issue, but the orientation dropdown isn't working with the new image field from PW 3.0 and 2.8.
I tried the develop branch, but had no luck.

Anyway thx for this great module!

Edit: I just found out, that the dropdown is working in grid view, but not in list view
Edit2: none of the extra fields is working in list view

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you regarding the error - I still need to look at this again, but for now I have a new problem for you :)

It looks like the Page Link option isn't working properly - it just shows a text input with "0" as the value.

Screen Shot 2015-11-12 at 9.59.43 PM.png

If I load "InputfieldPageListSelect.min.js" in the module, then it works as expected.

Hello, would you mind to point how to do this, I get this very same error.

Thanks.

My first time using this module - very cool. :)

For custom "additional" fields it would be nice to be able to set a field label as well as the field name, so field labels in the page editor can have spaces instead of underscores, etc. Maybe the field labels could be defined in the same table that is used for selecting TextFormatters?

Big +1 for this - sometimes it can be very hard to explain what should go in a field without a label.

I thought about this feature as well from time to time :). There is a new version 1.0.1 which fixes some PHP7 issues and adds the possibility to set custom labels for each extra field. It also supports multi-language usage. Furthermore I changed the way the extra fields (form) are rendered. Now you can click a tab and briefly hold (aka long-click) it and all extra fields will switch to that language. And I removed the checkbox for the caption field. If it was set, it will be added as first item in the `other fields` input field.

This looks awesome @justb3a - thank you!

While you're on a roll, I don't suppose you'd like to add the ability to define the width of custom fields so we can float them on one line?

The other thing that would really help would be an options type field with select/radios/checkbox options.

Sorry, I know that's a lot - just a wishlist :)

haha, I tried this today but $field->columnWidth = 50; has been ignored. So I guess I need to change the whole markup, wrap the fields inside a list or something like that. Today I just wanted to finish the other feature and didn't investigate further. But I keep it in mind. Furthermore I won't add another column for the widths of a field, I would prefer to set it to 50. Otherwise I've to add one more column to define the number of rows the textarea should be – for each field.

I know... There is a github issue for this as well. For now I got no good idea how the interface / structure could look like – it has to be as easy as possible for the user to add / remove / manipulate the fields. Maybe a simple input field where the user is able to add all option fields (comma-separated). Once the module settings has been saved one more table could appear. In this table the user could be able to set a type (select, radio, checkbox) and the options (comma-separated input). But what about multi-language labels and options? ??? This would blow up the whole settings a lot... If you have a good idea, just let me know!

Thanks for your thoughts on those.

I have a couple of weird things for you.

Now even with description field rows set to 0 I still get a label for the Description field.

Also, the input>text fields are now textarea fields - I think it looks kinda weird when you only want simple setting entries.

Thanks @justb3a for the updates, it's getting better and better!

There's a PHP notice in the new release:

PHP Notice: Undefined index: otherField in .../site/modules/ImageExtra/ImageExtra.module:992

If you use Tracy Debugger it's easy to spot.

You're right. The check whether to show the description label or not missed a condition. Since adding the opportunity to add textformatters I changed InputfieldText to InputfieldTextarea. Textformatters like Newlines to Unordered List doesn't make that much sense if you aren't able to add line breaks. I added a condition: all fields default to InputfieldText except the fields which got a textformatter assigned. I'm not that happy with the layout/styles right now. I need to invest some more time optimizing the layout.

You're right, too. I missed the following scenario: checked captionField but added no otherField.

The fixes are merged into the master branch :)

I understand the thinking here, but agree with @adrian that often you want a single line input rather than multi-line. I know you want to avoid an overly-complicated interface but perhaps there could a "Rows" input for additional fields like for the Description field?

Myself, I add SmartyPants and HTML Entity Encoder textformatters to all text fields.

      MarkupMenu is a markup module for generating menu trees. When provided a root page as a starting point, it generates a navigation tree (by default as a HTML "<ul>" element wrapped by a "<nav>" element) from that point onwards. If you've also provided it with current (active) page, the menu will be rendered accordingly, with current item highlighted and items rendered up to that item and its children (unless you disable the "collapsed" option, in which case the full page tree will be rendered instead).
      Modules directory: https://modules.processwire.com/modules/markup-menu/ GitHub repository: https://github.com/teppokoivula/MarkupMenu Usage
      As a markup module, MarkupMenu is intended for front-end use, but you can of course use it in a module as well. Typically you'll only need the render() method, which takes an array of options as its only argument:
      echo $modules->get('MarkupMenu')->render([ 'root_page' => $pages->get(1), 'current_page' => $page, ]); Note: if you omit root_page, site root page is used by default. If you omit current_page, the menu will be rendered, but current (active) page won't be highlighted etc.
      A slightly more complex example, based on what I'm using on one of my own sites to render a (single-level) top menu:
      echo $modules->get('MarkupMenu')->render([ 'current_page' => $page, 'templates' => [ 'nav' => '<nav class="{classes} menu--{menu_class_modifier}" aria-label="{aria_label}">%s</nav>', 'item_current' => '<a class="menu__item menu__item--current" href="{item.url}" tabindex="0" aria-label="Current page: {item.title}">{item.title}</a>', ], 'placeholders' => [ 'menu_class_modifier' => 'top', 'aria_label' => 'Main navigation', ], 'include' => [ 'root_page' => true, ], 'exclude' => [ 'level_greater_than' => 1, ], ]); Note: some things you see above may not be entirely sensible, such as the use of {menu_class_modifier} and {aria_label} placeholders. On the actual site the "nav" template is defined in site config, so I can define just these parts on a case-by-case basis while actual nav markup is maintained in one place.
      Please check out the README file for available render options. I'd very much prefer not to keep this list up to date in multiple places. Basically there are settings for defining "templates" for different parts of the menu (list, item, etc.), include array for defining rules for including in the menu and exclude array for the opposite effect, classes and placeholders arrays for overriding default classes and injecting custom placeholders, etc. 🙂
      MarkupMenu vs. MarkupSimpleNavigation
      TL;DR: this is another take on the same concept. There are many similarities, but also some differences – especially when it comes to the supported options and syntax. If you're currently using MarkupSimpleNavigation then there's probably no reason to switch over.
      I'd be surprised if anyone didn't draw lines between this module and Soma's awesome MarkupSimpleNavigation. Simply put, I've been using MSN (...) for a number of years, and it's been great – but there have been some smallish issues with it, particularly with the markup generation part, and it's also doing some things in a way that just doesn't work for me – the xtemplates thing being one of these. In many ways it's less about features, and more about style.
      In MarkupMenu I've tried to correct these little hiccups, modernise the default markup, and allow for more flexibility with placeholder variables and additional / different options. MarkupMenu was built for ProcessWire 3.0.112+ and PHP 7.1+, it's installable with Composer, and I have a few additional ideas (such as conditional placeholders) on my todo list.
      One smallish and rather specific difference is that MarkupMenu supports overriding default options via $config->MarkupMenu. I find myself redefining the default markup for every site, which until now meant that each site has a wrapper function for MarkupSimpleNavigation (to avoid code / config repetition), and this way I've been able to omit that 🙂
      Requirements
      ProcessWire >= 3.0.112 PHP >= 7.1.0 If you're working on an earlier version of ProcessWire or PHP, use MarkupSimpleNavigation instead.

      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
       
      Backend
       

       

       
      Frontend
