PHP echo x words, insert photo and repeat

Hello,

I have the following code:
<? $num_words = str_word_count($row_cms['6']); ?>

Open in new window


I would like to make it so that it counts the words ie 623 then cuts the number in 3rds

echo 1/3
echo <img src="example.jpg">
echo 2/3
echo <img src="example.jpg">
echo 3/3
echo <img src="example.jpg">
LVL 1

See if this makes sense for you:

$str = "first second third fourth fifth sixth";
echo $str;
echo "<br>";
echo "<br>";
echo "<br>";

$words = str_word_count($str, 1);
$chunks = array_chunk($words, 2);
foreach ($chunks as $ch)
{
	foreach ($ch as $c)
	{
		echo "$c ";
	}
	echo "<br><img src='example.jpg' /><br>";
}

Just for fun - here is an old school approach because words are different lengths - splitting on word count may not result in balanced paragraphs. This approach splits on third of string length and then tries to find the closest word break left or right of each third.
<?php

$str = "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. How now brown cow. Peter picked a peck of pickeled peppers. She sells sea shells on the sea shore. The sixth sick sheiks sixth sick sheep. Going up or";
// LENGTH OF STRING
$len = strlen($str);
// FIND THIRD OF STRING
$onethird = intval($len / 3);
$index=0;
// SEARCH LEFT AND RIGHT OF THIRD POSITION UNTIL FIRST
// SPACE IS FOUND
while ($onethird > $index && $str[$onethird - $index] != ' ' && $str[$onethird + $index] != ' ') $index++;
// SET THIRD TO POSITION OF CLOSEST WORD BREAK
// TO ONETHIRD POSITION
if ($str[$onethird+$index] == ' ') $third = $onethird + $index;
else $third = $onethird - $index;

// RESET TO DO FOR SECOND THIRD
$index=0;
// START POINT IS DOUBLE PREVIOUS
$twothird = $onethird << 1;
// SET TWOTHIRD TO POSITION OF CLOSEST
// WORD BREAK
while($str[$twothird - $index] != ' ' && $str[$twothird+$index] != ' ') $index++;
if ($str[$twothird+$index] == ' ') $twothird += $index;
else $twothird -= $index;

echo substr($str, 0, $third) . "<br/>";
echo '<img src="examples.jpg" /><br/>';
echo substr($str, $third, $twothird - $third) . "<br/>";
echo '<img src="examples.jpg" /><br/>';
echo substr($str, $twothird) . "<br/>";
echo '<img src="examples.jpg" /><br/>';
?>

If you are still around I have a quick question.

It is breaking my line and adding a <p> tag.

Before:
<p>There already had been plans for a golf course and homes to be built at Pebble Beach but Morse decided on fewer homes and a magnificent golf course, hiring Jack Neville and Douglas Grant as designers. Neville had won five state Amateurs and Grant had just returned from six years in Scotland and England, where he had studied the latest types of bunkering and greens construction on their championship courses, important elements in building a course that has become a mecca in golf. And, unlike most other prestigious courses in America, Pebble Beach Golf Links is open to the public.</p>

Oh guess it is not adding a P tag, but it is breaking the line.

Can you not insert a float div in the middle of a sentence? Thought you could and it would not break the line

I'm sorry, but I was away.
Let me say I really don't understand why julian code solve a problem which refers to html tags within the string: personally, I think you first used htmlspecialchars to ouput the string and then you have dropped the function.

About the breakline, just remove the <br> which both me and Julian have inserted in our code samples

me: echo "<br><img src='example.jpg' /><br>";

Julian: echo substr($str, 0, $third) . "<br/>";
echo '<img src="examples.jpg" /><br/>';

Hope this works
