Tutorial :Remove URL part and file extension with strstr



Question:

I tried function: strstr, but it has one problem. Suppose, the URL looks like:

http://www.example.com/index.php  

With strstr, I am able to remove anything before '/', but I want just:

index

i.e., the actual name of the file without extension.


Solution:1

If it always ends in .php you can do:

basename('http://www.example.com/index.php', '.php')  

If it can end with other extensions, you can do:

if (preg_match('#([^/]+)\.\w+$#', 'http://www.example.com/index.php', $matches))      $basename = $matches[1];  


Solution:2

I would highly suggest using the PHP parse_url() function:

$address = 'http://www.example.com/index.php';  $url = parse_url($address);  echo $url['host'];  

There is no point reinventing the wheel.


Solution:3

If the file type can change and you are sure there are no other . in the file name e.g. index.2.php then you can use

$filename = basename('http://www.example.com/index.php');  $filename = substr($filename, 0, strpos($filename, '.'));  


Solution:4

+1 cletus for the right tool for the right job, a proper URL parser. The regex hacks will fail for various query string stuff.

However it's the last path part being sought here not the host. So:

$url = parse_url($address);  $filename= array_pop(explode('/', $url['path']));  $filestem= explode('.', $filename)[0];  


Solution:5

its very simple , no need for much code.

just do it manually and it will be automatically readed

just write your url like that

      http://www.example.com/index  

and it will show your files as there is .php in the end.
