I have a “Downloads & Resources” collection containing many PDFs stored in static resources. The physical file paths are therefore different from the modx generated paths. I generate resource listings using pdoResources, complete with generated pThumb thumbnails using a tpl with code similar to:
<img class="border img-fluid mr-3" src="[[!pthumb? &input=[[+content]]
]]" width="64" height="64">
Everything about the above works great. No issues
My problem is I need to manually create some thumbs now. I thought that perhaps using fastfield to get the resource content - which should be the real path of the static resource - that it would work. It does not. It ends up forcing the page to show the PDF at the path, effectively replacing the page’s content to the end user.
<img src="[[!pthumb? &input=[[#63.content]]
]]" class="card-img mx-3 border shadow-sm" alt="..." />
So - how do I get the actual physical path of my static resource into that “&input” option above of my pthumb call?
