Create all thumbnails in one go (not on fly)?

I believe Kirby creates responsive images (thumbnails) on the ‘fly’ as they are needed – if they have not already been created.

I’ve just implemented responsive images on my website. As non of the thumbs have been created the site is noticeably slow to load. Rather me manually visiting every page, at every different responsive image ‘breakpoint’, to create the thumbs – so that it is faster for future visitors – is it possible to create all of the thumbs in one go, perhaps before launching the site?

I’ve just validated my site using Total Validator. In the process of validating the site it appears to have created all the thumbs and all the different dimensions and formats. So looks like this has resolved my query!

The Janitor plugin has a job to generate all thumbs: GitHub - bnomei/kirby3-janitor: Kirby 3 Plugin for running commands like cleaning the cache from within the Panel, PHP code, CLI or a cronjob

If you don’t mind me asking: you probably used the Pro version, right? I’m facing the same problem and your solution sounds pleasantly uncomplicated - I’m just a bit reluctant to buy the Pro version for this (for now) one-off use…

Hi, yes I am using the Pro version of Total Validator. I don’t know if the free version will also generate all the thumbs. I can recommend Total Validator (Pro).
