Easy WP Thumbs - by LCweb

Easy WP Thumbs is a PHP script created with the purpose to make WordPress thumbnails creation process as easy and smooth as possible. Inspired by TimThumb, is based on WP systems for the maximum compatibility.

Requires at least WP 3.5 and PHP 5.2

Supports WP 3.5 WP_Image_Editor class, using Imagick where available.
Supports also WEBP and AVIF (whenever WP will be ready) thumbnails creation.

How to use

1 - include easy_wp_thumbs.php in the main plugin/theme file

2 - on common servers you are ready to go, move to step 3.
While on hostings preventing direct files access you must check script status and, eventually, insert FTP/SSH credentials

// (optional) setup WP multilang functions to target your multilang domain 
ewpt_status_panel::$multilang_key = 'your_multilanguage_key'; 

// print status panel. $wrap_with_form_tag = false if you are putting it in an existing form 
echo ewpt_status_panel::get($wrap_with_form_tag = false); 

3 - Create thumbnails (check documentation to know more about parameters)

// inline PHP function returning static image URL
easy_wp_thumb($img_src, $width, $height, $quality, $alignment, $resize, $canvas_col, $fx, $get_url_if_not_cached);

// alternative way, using parameters array. You may use all of them or only few
$params = array(
    'w' => (int|bool),
    'h' => (int|bool),
    'q' => (int),
    'a' => (string),
    'rs' => (int),
    'cc' => (string),
    'fx' =>(array),
    'get_url_if_not_cached'=>  (string|bool)
easy_wp_thumb($img_src, $params);

// Timthumb-like async thumb creation (useful to not weight tons of processes on a single page)
<img src="<?php echo 'SCRIPT-URL/easy_wp_thumbs.php?src= &w= &h= &q= &a= &rs= &cc= &fx=' ?>" />
