MODx Plugin for Resource Redirecting

So Abraham got to work and adapated the example Page Not Found MODx Plugin to work as follows: forwards to (301) .

The Plugin Code

Create a new plugin, name it whatever you'd like resourceRedirect. Then on System Events check OnPageNotFound.

if ($modx->event->name == 'OnPageNotFound') {
$output = '';
$param_alias = $modx->getOption('request_param_alias');
$get = $modx->getOption('GET', $modx->request->parameters, '');
$rId = $modx->getOption($param_alias, $get, '');
if(!is_numeric($rId)) {
41return $output;
$rId = intval($rId);

$resource = $modx->getObject('modResource', array('id'=>$rId));

if($resource) {

$url = $modx->makeUrl($resource->get('id'));

return $output;
