Function Reference/trailingslashit

Contents

Description

Appends a trailing slash.

Will remove trailing slash if it exists already before adding a trailing slash. This prevents double slashing a string or path.

The primary use of this is for paths and thus should be used for paths. It is not restricted to paths and offers no specific path support.

Usage

<?php trailingslashit$string ?>

Parameters

$string
(string) (required) What to add the trailing slash to.
Default: None

Return Values

(string) 
String with trailing slash added.

Examples

<?php
$path = trailingslashit( '/home/julien/bin/dotfiles' ); 
?>

$path will now contain: /home/julien/bin/dotfiles/ (Notice the trailing slash)
