How to use a PHP include to print HTML code based on URL filename

Related searches

I'm trying to write a simple PHP script that uses PHP include to inject HTML based on the filename of the URL.

For example using a PHP include - if the filename in the URL is dog.html print dog into the html document. - if the filename in the URL is cat.html print cat into the html document.

This is to inject JSON-LD code for structured data.

I'm able to use PHP includes to print html code without issue, but its getting it to read the filename and print a specific portion of HTML that I can't seem to make work.


You can use $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] to grab the Path, File, and Query of a url such as ( ..dog.php?dep=n/a&title=boss ) from a full url eg. http://www.weeex.com/dog.php?dep=n/a&title=boss

To solve your case:

 //Grab the filename from the uri using the basename function. 

 $request_uri = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] ;
//I am exploding at the  "?" delimiter so that I can get rid of the query I don't need

 $path=explode("?",$request_uri);
 $filename=basename($path[0]);

     //YOUR PHP INCLUDE CODE HERE 
     include $filename ;

this will work to grab the filename even with a complicated url like......"http://www.ex.com/dog.php?dep=n/a&title=boss"

I hope this will shed some light

They are both used to output data to the screen. The differences are small: echo has no return value while print has a return value of 1 so it can be used in expressions. echo can take multiple parameters (although such usage is rare) while print can take one argument.


PHP basename() Function, echo basename($path) ."<br/>"; //Show filename, but cut off file extension for ". php" files echo basename($path,".php"); ?> The output of the code above will be:. Use PRINT or ECHO . This other way is basically the opposite; it's how you'd add HTML to a PHP file with PRINT or ECHO, where either command is used to simply print HTML on the page. With this method, you can include the HTML inside of the PHP tags.
