Get the width and height of an image using a function in PHP

This is a very useful function in PHP. PHP provides function to get the width and height of an image. The
getimagesize() function will determine the size of image file including flash file(swf).


list($width, $height, $type, $attr) = getimagesize(“image_name.jpg”);


This is a sample code, change image_name to your image name and test it!


list($width, $height, $type, $attr) = getimagesize(“image_name.jpg”);

echo “Image width ” .$width;
echo “<BR>”;
echo “Image height ” .$height;
echo “<BR>”;
echo “Image type ” .$type;
echo “<BR>”;
echo “Attribute ” .$attr;


When you run this script you will see the result like this

Image width 379
Image height 344
Image type 2
Image attribute width=”379″ height=”344″

You will get the width, height, type of an image and also attribute of an image, I use this function in my image

How to determine if the user is viewing the Joomla front page or not?

If you are using Joomla older version like 1.0 then you’ll only need to verify the current component with the following command:

if ($option == 'com_frontpage' || $option == '') {
echo 'This is the front page';

Bellow porsion for Joomla! 1.5 could be easily confirmed by the following command:

if ( JRequest::getVar('view') === 'frontpage' ) {
echo 'This is the front page';

Just in case the above command doesn’t work then the issue could be a little more complicated and need to check if the current active menu item is the default one. I saw this issue in some 1.5 early versions.

$menu =& JSite::getMenu();
if ($menu->getActive() == $menu->getDefault()) {
echo 'This is the front page';

Javascript validation check

There ate two javascript validation function i have made.

First one check empty field using id. We may use field id by an array as bellow. This function check empty field and if found empty field then focus that field also. We may use here another condition like email, phone number check. I think this will be reduce line number of code and time also.
<form method=”post” action=”<?=$_SERVER[‘PHP_SELF’]?>” onSubmit=”return checkClientForm();”>
<input type=”text” name=”name” id=”name” value=”” tabindex=”1″ /><br />
<input type=”text” name=”title” id=”title” value=”” tabindex=”2″ /><br />
<input type=”text” name=”description” id=”description” value=”” tabindex=”3″ /><br />
<input type=”submit” name=”submit” value=”Save” tabindex=”4″ />

Second one check file type like image. We may use this function by onchange element. If the file type dose not match then this will give a alert and clear the field also.

<input type=”file” name=”image” id=”image” value=”” onchange=”checkPhoto()” />

<script language=”javascript” type=”text/javascript”>
function checkClientForm(){
var cont;
var allid = new Array(“name”,”title”,”description”); //you may add more
var msg;
for (var i=0; i<=allid.length-1; i++){
alert(“You should fill the required fields properly”);
return false;
return true;

function checkPhoto(){
if( (document.getElementById(‘image’).value.split(‘.’)[1]!=’jpg’) && (document.getElementById(‘image’).value.split(‘.’)[1]!=’jpeg’) && (document.getElementById(‘image’).value.split(‘.’)[1]!=’JPG’) && (document.getElementById(‘image’).value.split(‘.’)[1]!=’JPEG’) && (document.getElementById(‘image’).value.split(‘.’)[1]!=’png’) && (document.getElementById(‘image’).value.split(‘.’)[1]!=’PNG’)){ alert(“Sorry, This type of file is not allowed to upload.”); document.getElementById(‘image’).value=”; document.getElementById(‘image’).focus(); return false; }
