Add-On Type(s)



Provides comprehensive information on a file for EE templates

The plugin provides comprehensive information on a file and makes this information available to ExpressionEngine templates.

The plugin expects to be given a file. This can either be relative to the document root of the site

{exp:file_oracle file="/images/example_file.jpg"}
  <p>MD5: {md5}</p>

Or the full server path

{exp:file_oracle file="/Users/george/Sites/ee16.local/images/example.jpg"}
  <p>Last modified: {mtime format="%F %d %Y"}</p>

There are many single variables you can make use of (see documentation for complete list).

Example Use

{exp:file_oracle file="/images/avatar_bigger.jpg"}
  <p>File size: {human_size}</p>
  <p>File permissions: {file_perms}</p>
  <p>Mime type: {mime_type}</p>
