Find If File Exists - Revert To Original Path

I've written a function to take an image path, add some text to the end of it, then join it back together. I'm trying to write an if else branch to test if the file exists after I've appended the new text to the image. For example, if I request the image path:


It could be modified to this:


The function is intended for WordPress, so takes the $post->ID argument, the custom field name, width and height of the intended target. Here is the function:


I know this is crude, so any ideas to condense this code and make it "better" is welcomed. What I'm finding is that the function always returns the original image path. Can file_exists() take an absolute path like [URL], or will it only accept a root-style absolute path, like '/path/to/file/image1.jpg'?

Remove From $name (folder)/(folder)/[x]/ <-- If Exists To Just Get [x].

I'll be quite honest. I don't have the faintest idea
how to do this, while I can do other php without a problem. Once I
know how to go about it I'll be okay.
It's two things I think?
1. see if there's a trailing slash and delete it.
2. Remove the preceding path to /x, the folders and slashes, and
delete them.
and then I have x.

X by the way is the final folder in a website and this grabs it for

$name = $REQUEST_URI;

Find Out If A Value Exists In An Array When Compared?

I have an array that looks like this:

[0] => Array
[0] => 1
[id] => 1


What I would like to do is compare an int value against what's in the id value field. So, if I were to pass in say a 1, I'd like to be able to have a function compare this. I was thinking in_array but I can't get that to work.

Find Out If A Substring Exists In A String?

I know many questions already asked about this problem, but I was not able to find the right answer for my specific problem.

I have a search string - "1|1"

I have a array containing following values - "a" => "1|1", "b" => "2|1,1|1", "c" => "3|2,2|1"

All I want to do is just to find if the search string existed in the array, it should return the array key. If more than one array item has the search string, it should return all of them.

In this example, I am expecting to get both "a" and "b", but when I use strpos(), it only gives me "a".
