Any thoughts? This is driving me nuts.
Get the address from the user inputed URL (such as http://google.com
) and append the relative image path (images/image.gif):
$url = $_GET['url'];
$image_path = "images/image.gif";
$url += $image_path;
There's probably better ways of doing it, and of course you'd have to check to make sure there are no variables and such attached to the url.
