Thanks garygreen - looks pretty good, I'll check it out.

Thanks garygreen, I should have looked there first. Unfortunately it doesn't look like the developer is interested in coming up with a fix.

bluefrog started a new conversation Intervention Image - Cached But Slow

Hi all, I am using the Intervention Image package in conjunction with the Image Cache package and have things set up as per: http://image.intervention.io/use/url

Once an image has been manipulated, it is supposedly saved to cache and re-used: "Once the route is accessed the first time, the image will be searched, edited according to the template and stored in the cache. So the next time you access the URL, all the GD manipulation is bypassed and the file will come directly from the cache."

However, images seem very slow to load once cached. For example, try this image: https://www.schoolnotices.co.uk/imgcache/medium/8445-14723134589369.jpg

I'm seeing between 500 and 700ms to load. It's a 17k image. Seems off to me, can anyone offer an opinion?

Thanks!

Thank you! That seems to have fixed the problem.

bluefrog started a new conversation Class 'IronMQ' Not Found

Hi,

I am moving a project over from 4.2 to 5.0 and I get this error for ironMQ:

FatalErrorException in IronConnector.php line 49: Class 'IronMQ' not found in IronConnector.php line 49 at HandleExceptions->fatalExceptionFromError(array('type' => '1', 'message' => 'Class 'IronMQ' not found', 'file' => '/Users/ollie_new/Sites/laravel/vendor/laravel/framework/src/Illuminate/Queue/Connectors/IronConnector.php', 'line' => '49')) in HandleExceptions.php line 116 at HandleExceptions->handleShutdown()

I have added "iron-io/iron_mq": "2.*", it to my composer.json in the require section, deleted composer.lock and run composer update followed by composer install. I still get the same error. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
