Phpthumbof with MODX 3.0.x


Hey everyone. After update to MODX 3.0.x, the popular addon phpthumbof became broken.

After some research I found that required class modPhpThumb was moved from core/model/phpthumb/… to core/src/Revolution/modPhpThumb.php. In phpthumbof snippet this class basicly loads with loadClass, but I can’t do it for new version:

  • If I rename it to modphpthumb.class.php or require class directly, I have an exception Uncaught Error: Class ‘modPhpThumb’ not found in …/core/components/phpthumbof/model/phpthumbof/phpthumbof.class.php:193.
  • If I connect class directly not from snippet but from phpthumbof.class.php, I have another error message: Cannot declare class MODX\Revolution\modPhpThumb, because the name is already in use in …/core/src/Revolution/modPhpThumb.php on line 23.

Phpthumbof is a very old addon and I think that there will be no official fix for this issue. Do anyone have any experience about usage phpthumbof with MODX 3 or maybe there is any another plugin with same functionality working with MODX 3?

Step to reproduce

Try to use phpthumbof with MODX 3.0.x and read error logs.

Hey @paswd-ru

Try pthumb - it’s a drop-in replacement for phpthumbof [so you shouldn’t need to update your code] and it works on MODX 3.x

Oh, it works, thanks. Strangely that I won’t decide to use it early - I thought that I’ve already tried it.
