Asset Manager

By Everett Griffiths (everettg_99)

Version 1.3.1 is compatible with MODX 2.6.5 and PHP 7.1

This package adds asset management functionality to MODX Revolution so you can easily upload and edit images and other assets and attach them to any MODX page.  Because this Extra stores all asset data in a custom database table, you can easily search for assets by complex criteria or manipulate the search queries for custom reporting.

The end result of using the Asset Manager can be similar to adding multiple image Template Variables to a template (e.g. using MIGX), but the user interface and backend data model is cleaner.

  • Automatically detect MIME-types and automatically create MODX content types
  • Supports complex search criteria to find assets 
  • Galleries of Images
  • Drag and drop images to upload them using Dropzone
  • Output filters for easy image resizing (like pThumb, but better), including scale-to-width, scale-to-height, thumbnails and cropping.
  • Relies on standard Packagist packages to conduct image manipulation
