Get Width/Height of Image

If all you have for an image is the URL, you can still find the dimensions:

<?php

  list($width, $height, $type, $attr) = getimagesize("url/to/image.jpg");

  echo "Image width " . $width;
  echo "Image height " . $height;
  echo "Image type " . $type;
  echo "Attribute " . $attr;

?>

    Good snippet. Thanx. My question aside a little bit but… How to set Facebook Canvas Height and Width with jQuery? Native methods do not work sometimes and they only can encrease height but can not decrease.

Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like ```this```. You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you.

Sadly, it's kind of broken. WordPress only accepts a subset of HTML in comments, which makes sense, because certainly some HTML can't be allowed, like <script> tags. But this stripping happens before the comment is processed by Markdown (via Jetpack). It seems to me that would be reversed, because after Markdown processes code in backticks, it's escaped, thus safe. If you think you can fix this issue, get in touch!

If you need to make sure the code (typically HTML) you post absolutely posts correctly, escape it and put it within <pre><code> tags.
