<txp:image_url /> sing/cont tag, 4 attributes


The image_url tag is a single or a container tag that Textpattern will replace with the URL of the current image in an images list, or the specific image if given an id or name.

If used as a container tag, it must be specified as an opening and closing pair of tags, like this:

...link contents...


id="unset" (integer) 
  • An id assigned at upload of an image to display. The IDs can be found on the Images tab.
  • An image to display, given by its image name as shown on the Images tab. If both name and id are specified, the id takes precedence.
thumbnail="0" (boolean)
  • If set to 1, will display the link to the image’s thumbnail instead of the full size image.
  • Whether to hyperlink the URL or not.
  • Values:
    • 1: hyperlink the URL (if used as a single tag) or the container content.
    • 0: don’t hyperlink the URL / container.
    • auto: only apply the hyperlink if the tag is used as a container.
