Get any Website Page Title From URL in PHP

Hey guys,here below describe the how to get the page title form any website page using  URL. Here for getting the page title we are using the file_get_contents function.This one also achieve using fopen( ) but in some servers disabled this function now a days due to some security reasons.

Here below shows the PHP code to get the page title form the URL.

<!--?php
function pageTitle($page_url)
{
     $read_page=file_get_contents($page_url);
     preg_match("/<title.*?>[\n\r\s]*(.*)[\n\r\s]*<\/title>/", $read_page, $page_title);
      if (isset($page_title[1]))
      {
            if ($page_title[1] == '')
            {
                  return $page_url;
            }
            $page_title = $page_title[1];
            return trim($page_title);
      }
      else
      {
            return $page_url;
      }
}

Jquery Timeago Implementation with PHP.

Nowadays timeago is the most important functionality in social networking sites, it helps to updating timestamps automatically. Recent days I received few requests from 9lessons readers that asked me how to implement timeago plugin with dynamic loading live data using PHP. In this post I am just presenting a simple tip to implement timeago in a better way.

Why Live Query
LiveQuery utilizes the power of jQuery selectors by binding events or firing callbacks for matched elements auto-magically, even after the page has been loaded and the DOM updated.

Code
Contains javascipt code. $(this).timeago()- here this element is refers to timeagoclass selector of the anchor tag.

 

// <![CDATA[
javascript” src=”js/jquery.min.js”>
// ]]>
// <![CDATA[
javascript” src=”js/jquery.livequery.js”>
// ]]>
// <![CDATA[
javascript” src=”js/jquery.timeago.js”>
// ]]>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
$(document).ready(function(){
$(“.timeago”).livequery(function() // LiveQuery
{
$(this).timeago(); // Calling Timeago Funtion
});
});
</script>

//HTML & PHP Code
<!–?php
$time=time(); // Current timestamp eg: 1371612613
$mtime=date(“c”, $time); // Converts to date formate 2013-06-19T03:30:13+00:00
?>

You opened this page <a href=’#’ class=’timeago’ title=”<!–?php echo$mtime; ?>“></a>

 

Step-by-Step guide to Facebook Conversion Tracking

Step 1: Once you log in to your ‘Ads Manager’ tab, click on the Conversion Tracking button on the left side bar.

FB-1

Step 2: Then click on the ‘Create Conversion Pixel’ tab to begin the process.

FB-2

Step 3: You will be directed to this pop-up, which will ask you for a:

1. Name: An appropriate name will help you remember what you are tracking. (Example: Lead Generation – GATE Ad)

2. Category: This will help you decide the type of action that you want to track on your site. You can choose from the following:

1. Checkouts

2. Registrations

3. Leads

4. Key Page Views

5. Adds to Cart

6. Other Website Conversions

(For the purpose of this example, we have selected ‘Leads’).

FB-3

Step 4: You will be able to see a pop-up window with a JavaScript code. This is the code that you will have to add to the page where the conversion will happen. This will let you track the conversions back to ads which you are running on Facebook.

FB-4

The code should be placed on the page that a user will finally see when the transaction is complete.

Here is the tricky part. The code should not go on all pages. For that matter, it should not even go to the landing page of your product. The code should be placed on the page that a user will finally see when the transaction is complete.

For Example: If you want to track when students register for your GATE coaching, paste the code on the registration confirmation page/thank you page and not on the form that they need to submit.

How do you confirm that your conversion is working properly?

1. Check that the javascript snippet has been placed on the correct conversion page. Visit the page where the pixel has been embedded, right click and go to ‘View Page Source’ to find the pixel. The code should have the tag of the HTML. See image below.

FB-5

2. Check that Facebook is receiving the conversion events from your website. Go to the conversion tracking tab in your Ads Manager account. There you will see a list of the conversion tracking pixels that you have created. If the conversion tracking pixel has been successfully implemented and a conversion event has been recorded, it will be reflected in the Pixel Status column. If the status shows active, it means that the page which contains the pixel has been viewed by users. If it shows inactive, it means that over the last 24 hours, the page with the pixel has not been viewed.

3.Later, when you  create your Facebook ad , you need to check the track conversions box under the campaign, pricing and schedule tab to enable tracking.

Upload Cover Photo to Facebook via PHP

January 4, 2013 1 comment

Here is a tutorial to upload a Cover Photo on Facebook via PHP. We will need Facebook Application ID and Secret, and Facebook files from Github.com then upload to your web space only the src  folder. Now create a file called upload.php and upload it to your web space. Open upload.php with notepad and add this code:

<?php
 
ini_set('display_errors', 1);
 error_reporting(E_ALL);

 require 'src/facebook.php';

 $facebook = new Facebook(array(
 'appId' => "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx", //Facebook App ID
 'secret' => "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx", // Facebook App Secret
 "cookie" => true,
 'fileUpload' => true
 ));

 $user_id = $facebook->getUser();

 if($user_id == 0 || $user_id == "")
 {
 $login_url = $facebook->getLoginUrl(array(
 'redirect_uri' => 'https://selvabalaji.wordpress.com/upload.php?cover='.$_GET['cover'].'', // Replace with your site url
 'scope' => "publish_stream,user_photos"));

 echo "<script type='text/javascript'>top.location.href = '$login_url';</script>";
 exit();
 }

 //get user album
 $albums = $facebook->api("/me/albums");
 $album_id = ""; 
 foreach($albums["data"] as $item){
 if($item["type"] == "cover_photo"){
 $album_id = $item["id"];
 break;
 }
 }

 //set timeline cover atributes 
 $full_image_path = realpath($_GET['cover']);
 $args = array('message' => 'Uploaded from hhttps://selvabalaji.wordpress.com/');
 $args['image'] = '@' . $full_image_path;

 //upload cover photo to Facebook
 $data = $facebook->api("/me/photos", 'post', $args);
 $picture = $facebook->api('/'.$data['id']);

 $fb_image_link = 'http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?preview_cover='.$data['id'].''; //redirect to uploaded facebook cover and change it
 echo "<script type='text/javascript'>top.location.href = '$fb_image_link';</script>";
?>

Now that just type in the URL of your site followed by the name of the image file and you’re done!
Example : http://yoursitename.com/upload.php?cover=selvabalaji.gif
