I have made a couple of custom page templates files:


page-texas.php etc.

Now I want to add some php after the_content so that each page template get their own php addition script just after the content.

I am thinking something along the lines of adding to the functions.php - but I am having trouble properly identifying the right page template, for instance "page-florida.php" ...

function floridacontent($content) {
 global $post;
  if ($post->page_template == 'florida') {
  $content .= 'Forida added content';
  return $content;
add_filter('the_content', 'floridacontent');
  • I don't understant the problem you have with page_template, the template file name is really in this variable.

  • if you are using separate templates and each has separate content, then why not just insert the content in the template itself?

  • It reaks havoc on the design, so I want to add it as part of the_content to preserve design etc. Dec 17, 2017 at 0:11

You can get the name from the global $template. I don't know of a way to get it with an API call instead of a global, but such is life.

function floridacontent( $content ){
    global $template;
    $name = basename( $template, '.php' );
    if( 'page-florida' == $name ){
        $content .= 'Forida added content';
    return $content;
add_filter( 'the_content', 'floridacontent' );
