I try to get all images out of the content-area of a post. I already tried this

$imgs = get_posts(array(
    'post_type' => 'attachment',
    'post_per_page' => -1,
    'post_parent' => $thread->ID

But this only returns the featured image / the post thumbnail.

I also have tried

$imgs = get_post_galleries_images($thread->ID);
foreach($imgs as $img){
    echo $img;

But this returns nothing.

Any idea how I can get the images out of the content?



You can use DOMDocument class

$doc = new DOMDocument();
$images = $document->getElementsByTagName('img');
  • Thanks! That's great :) First time I heard about this functionality! After your code, I looped through the array and got access to the src-attribut via $img->getAttribute("src") – Brotzka Nov 19 '15 at 15:28
