Add-On Type(s)



This plugin is designed to take a URL (alone, or mixed in with other text, such as the automatic link the upload form might create) and dissect it into its separate components.

These components are named, as variables:

  • full_url ( [the given url] )
  • scheme (http)
  • user (user)
  • pass (pass)
  • host (http://www.example.com)
  • port (8080)
  • public_path (/articles)
  • file_path (/articles/index.php)
  • server_path (/var/www/html/articles/index.php)
  • file_name (index.php)
  • extension (php)
  • description (PHP File)
  • file_size (1.14KB)
  • file_size_raw (1.14)
  • file_size_unit (KB)
  • query_string (id=10&q=Hello+World)
  • fragment (example_anchor)

Example A

{exp:zm_extract_url_plus show="%file_name (%file_size)"}
    ... Some text ...
    ... Some more text ...

Example B

{exp:zm_extract_url_plus url="{url_custom_field}"}
{file_name} ({file_size})

There is an additional parameter in this version:

url_only=”” - Defaults to “no”, meaning the plugin will revert to using a regular expression to find the URL in text. This of course is more CPU intensive than if you are supplying JUST a URL, where you could set this paramater to “yes”.
