Get image URL (jpg) - Add Social Sharing to Single Image Pages

In ttg_single_bottom I can figure out how the get the URL of the image php file but is there and easy way to get the URL of the actual image itself?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, the image name or any additional image data are not exposed by the phplugins API. But at least from the page URL, it is easy to derive the image filename and then create the image path.

Thanks. I was hoping I could be lazy and not have to parse everything. ?

Re: Get image URL (jpg) - Add Social Sharing to Single Image Pages

Little coffee break exercise. Might not be the most efficient, but it works:

function ttg_single_bottom( $style, $path) {
   
   $img = substr(strrchr(substr($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"], 0, strrpos($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"],"-single.php")), '/'), 1);
   $imgpath = substr($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"], 0, strrpos($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"],$img)) . 'photos/' . $img . '.jpg'; 
      
   echo '<a href="'.$imgpath.'">'.$imgpath.'</a>';
}

You are not working on 'share to social media' buttons by chance?

Thanks for the code and, yes I am. I can share the php link to fb and g+ but some need a link to the jpg itself.

Hey Charlie, would you mind to share your code that you came up with? Thank you!

Re: Get image URL (jpg) - Add Social Sharing to Single Image Pages

This is probably a little clunky but it seems to work ok.

function ttg_single_bottom ( $style, $path ) {

    $actual_link = "https://$_SERVER[HTTP_HOST]$_SERVER[REQUEST_URI]";
    $img = substr(strrchr(substr($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"], 0, strrpos($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"],"-single.php")), '/'), 1);
    $imgpath = substr($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"], 0, strrpos($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"],$img)) . 'photos/' . $img . '.jpg';
    $imgfullpath = "https://$_SERVER[HTTP_HOST]$imgpath";

    echo '
        <div id=social-align>
            <a class="icon" target="_blank" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u='.$actual_link.'" title="Share on Facebook">
                <i class="fa fa-facebook-official"  style="color:#3b5998; font-size: 150%;"></i></a>
            <a class="icon" target="_blank" href="http://www.twitter.com/intent/tweet?url='.$actual_link.'" title="Tweet">
                <i class="fa fa-twitter"  style="color:#1da1f2; font-size: 150%;"></i></a>                                 
            <a class="icon" target="_blank" href="https://plus.google.com/share?url='.$actual_link.'" title="Share on Google Plus">
                <i class="fa fa-google-plus-official"  style="color:#dd4b39; font-size: 150%;"></i></a>
            <a class="icon" target="_blank" href="http://pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url='.$actual_link.'&amp;media='.$imgfullpath.'" title="Share on Pinterest">
                <i class="fa fa-pinterest-p"  style="color:#cb2027; font-size: 150%;" id="social_media_04"></i></a>
            <a class="icon" target="_blank" href="http://stumbleupon.com/submit?url='.$imgfullpath.'" title="Share on Stumbleupon">
                <i class="fa fa-stumbleupon"  style="color:#EB4823; font-size: 150%;" id="social_media_04"></i></a>
            <a class="icon" target="_blank" href="mailto:?subject=An image you might like&body='.$actual_link.'" title="Share via email">
                <i class="fa fa-envelope-o"  style="font-size: 150%;"></i></a>
        </div>
       
       
';

Charlie, there was a missing '/' in the stumbleupon.com link. I fixed it in the code you posted.

Somehow it works on your site, but didn't on mine.

Re: Get image URL (jpg) - Add Social Sharing to Single Image Pages

FWIW, this is the css styling I used:

#social-align
{
    text-align: right;
    float: none;
    padding-right: 24px;
    }
   
#social-align.icon {
    display: inline-block;
    }
