I need to get the permalink outside of my function.php file, which will be executed when the browser loads. The following is the script that I have been working on...
file --> functions.php
$sharepermalink = '<?php the_permalink() ?>';
/* I need the permalink only when the single.php template loads and grabs the permalink then to extract the json string as mentioned below */
$fbsharelink = 'http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=';
$fbcount = @json_decode(file_get_contents('https://graph.facebook.com/'.$sharepermalink));
$fbsharecounts = number_format($fbcount->shares);
file --> single.php
/* print the value stored in the variable fbsharelink */
Goal : When ever my single post page loads the function.php has pull the permalink and process the remaining codes and stores the final answer into a variable $fbsharecounts
Kindly help me.
