Modification of WordPress Plugin "Dynamic Image Resizer". Additionally allows to dynamically create the meta data for intermediate image sizes for already uploaded images.
<?php /*
Plugin Name: Dynamic Image Resizer
Plugin URI:
Author: Otto42 / Modified by JochenT
Author URI:
Version: (11.10.2013)
Description: Change the WordPress image uploader system to do image resizing on the fly.
Included: [function image_resize() is deprecated since WP 3.5]
Included: [change returning status code to 200]
Added : Now all image formats supported which can be handled by new class WP_Image_Editor
Added : Function dynimg_add_missing_size() which adds/changes image sizes in the meta data of already uploaded images, too
Added : Three defines which enable the new functionality. Should be implemented as options later.
* The next three defines enable additional features which are only usefull if intermediate image sizes have been
* added or changed. To add/change image sizes use function add_image_size() or a plugin like "Simple Image Sizes".
// If adding a NEW image size, WP does not create resized image files for already uploaded images.
// Set this constant to TRUE, to create resized image files for already uploaded images, too.
// If an existing image size is CHANGED, WP does not create resized versions for already uploaded images.
// Set this constant to TRUE, to create resized image files for already uploaded images for changed image sizes, too.
// Also constant DYNIMG_CREATE_IMAGE_FOR_ADDED_SIZE_ALWAYS has to be set to TRUE to enable this feature.
// Existing image files of the old size will not be deleted but the meta entry may be deleted. Thus you should not use
// this option if you have manually created cropped versions for any of the intermediate sizes and want to be able to
// display them further.
// If an existing image size has been changed and the image files with the old size dimensions will not be
// used anymore, they may be removed. Nevertheless, the originally uploded image file will never be deleted.
// This option can not be used to delete obsolete resized image files afterwards. The deletion of an old image
// file has always to take place simultaneously with the creation of the new resized image file.
// In the case the old resized image file is still referenced directly from any post content or some image sizes
// have been set to the same dimensions (e.g. post-thumbnail=1000x300 and large=1000x300) this will not result
// in problems as the 404 handler of this plugin will regenerate that sizes on the fly again, if needed.
// Set this constant to TRUE, to delete existing old image files for a changed image size.
// to be set to TRUE to enable this feature.
// disable plugin on multisite
if (is_multisite()) return;
// do the dynamic resizing of the image when the 404 handler is invoked and it's for a non-existant image
