Thumbs not generated (using CloudPanel one server)

Sadly nothing is generated — not on the fly when loading a page nor through the panel even when uploading new media (the same media that is successfuly converted with the resize pluging).

Yes, which makes it all the more odd why Kirby cannot seem to generate thumbs on its own.

I just added to a template:

   exec('convert -v', $output);

It succesfully prints:

@texnixe do you know which lines of code in Kirby trigger thumbs generation when a url is called?

I added echo ("ImageMagick command: " . $command); to ImageMagick.php at line 161.

This has revealed that the command is in fact not being triggered.

The command is however triggered by Blurry Placeholder Images for Kirby plugin, which is recorded in the log thanks to the echo ("ImageMagick command: " . $command);.

In short: I need to identify why the thumbs code is not being triggered like normal.

Thank you for all your help and patience!

And if you log before the command is executed? What code are you using in your template?

process() is called in the thumb component.

I get an error Undefined variable $output

PHP — if that is what you’re asking?

Sorry, I meant to actually see the code from your template.

Yes, $output is not defined before the exec command is executed, because that’s something exec returns.

But that means that the process() command is at least triggered.

Nothing unusual as far as I can tell

here is exhibition.php (please don’t judge my coding!)

<!-- header -->
<?php snippet('header') ?>
<!-- nav -->
<?php snippet('nav') ?>
<!-- content -->
<main id="main" class="page-container page-wrapper">

    <!-- container -->
    <div class="main-container">
        <!-- filtered result -->
        <?php snippet('exhibition/exhibition') ?>
<!-- footer -->
<?php snippet('footer') ?>

Here is the main snippet:

<div class="main-img-container">
    if ($page->cover()->toFile()) {
        $image = $page->cover()->toFile();
    } else {
        $image = $page->image();
    <img src="<?= $image->placeholderUri() ?>" data-src="<?= $image->url() ?>" data-lazyload alt="<?= $image->alt() ?>" />

<div class="main-exhibition-text-container">
    <?= $page->title() ?><br>
    <?= $page->startDate()->toDate("d.m.Y") ?><?php if ($page->startDate()->isNotEmpty() && $page->endDate()->isNotEmpty()) : ?>—<?php endif ?><?= $page->endDate()->toDate("d.m.Y") ?><br><br>
    <?= $page->text()->kt() ?>

<div class="layouts">
    <?php foreach ($page->layout()->toLayouts() as $layout) : ?>
        <section class="grid" id="<?= $layout->id() ?>">
            <?php foreach ($layout->columns() as $column) : ?>
                <div class="column" style="--span:<?= $column->span() ?>; --columns:<?= $column->span() ?>">
                    <?php foreach ($column->blocks() as $block) : ?>
                        <div id="<?= $block->id() ?>" class="block block-type-<?= $block->type() ?>">
                            <?= $block ?>
                    <?php endforeach ?>
            <?php endforeach ?>
    <?php endforeach ?>

Hm, but unless I’m blind I don’t see any thumb creation code?

Guess the placeholderUri() method is something provided by the blurry placeholder plugin.

This may only have been the case for the Blurry Placeholder Images for Kirby plugin, which is succesfully generating placeholder thumbs when a url is called — just the actual image isn’t having it’s thumb generated

My understanding is that thumbs method is used to generate the “thumbs” for all page media? (but correct me if I’m wrong!)

So the issue is that media uploaded through the panel results in no “thumbs” being generated in the /media/.../page directory (nor when a URL is called). Same for the panel.

So e.g., the panel looks like this:

Ok, understand. I’m almost at my wits end. Which Kirby version are you using? I guess locally everything works fine?

Yep locally everything is fine. Same on a server not using CloudPanel.

I’m using the latest Kirby 3.7.1

Me too lol!

One last pathway I could try. Do you know how I might log an error in the Kirby code so that any failure of media thumbs generation when uploading an image via the panel might be seen?
