I need to insert following dynamic URL:

echo $myfy->get_retrieve_cart_url( $post->ID, $landing_page )


echo "<a href='"LINK"'> . get_title() . </a>";

Basically, I need to replace the "LINK" with above URL, I have tried all combinations that I've thought about and I'm getting a string error, Can anybody give me a helpline?


There are two workarounds:

If the first line you're mentioning is inside a void function:

You have to create a wrapper function and use ob_ functions to get the real link:

function echo_link($post, $landing_page) {
    global $myfy;
    echo $myfy->get_retrieve_cart_url( $post->ID, $landing_page );
function get_link($post, $landing_page){
    echo_link($post, $landing_page);
    return ob_get_clean();

// And finally in your result:
echo "a href='" . get_link($post, $landing_page) . "'>.get_title()";

If the first line you're mentioning is not inside a void function or you can simply duplicate it without concerning about the future changes:

$link = $myfy->get_retrieve_cart_url( $post->ID, $landing_page );
echo "a href='" . $link . "'>.get_title()";

By the way, You might forget about those dots (.) while trying to concatenate your strings.

  • I was able insert the link but url is not resolved correct, this goes as a part of a custom post query in woocommerce plugin. – Roshan Deshapriya Sep 3 '18 at 13:18
  • Double check your call and give more information about your plugin or at least the source code of get_retrieve_cart_url function. – Farsad Sep 3 '18 at 15:21
  • I already have page template which load the cart successfully with this above url under custom post types, so though to do a plugin for same purpose. This url load inside a query. I'll do test your code and share the updated code for more insight. – Roshan Deshapriya Sep 3 '18 at 20:32
  • I was able to get the correct path by adding $post to your 1st function (global $myfy, $post;) Thanks mate for support. – Roshan Deshapriya Sep 3 '18 at 21:09
