Linking to all image sizes Flickr style

Adding this snippet to your wordpress theme will automatically link to all image sizes. Add the first snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme. Then add the second snippet to the image.php or attachment.php template of your wordpress theme.

Code Snippet:

function my_get_image_size_links() {
if ( !wp_attachment_is_image( get_the_ID() ) )
$links = array();
$sizes = get_intermediate_image_sizes();
$sizes[] = 'full';

foreach ( $sizes as $size ) {
$image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_the_ID(), $size );

if ( !empty( $image ) && ( true == $image[3] || 'full' == $size ) )
$links[] = "<a class='image-size-link' href='{$image[0]}'>{$image[1]} &times; {$image[2]}</a>";
return join( ' <span class="sep">/</span> ', $links );

Code Snippet:

<?php if ( wp_attachment_is_image( get_the_ID() ) ) { ?>
<div class="image-meta">
<?php printf( __( 'Sizes: %s', 'example-textdomain' ), my_get_image_size_links() ); ?>
<?php } ?>

  1. not work aniway

  2. Thanks for this snippet – works great! I’m trying to display only certain images sizes but had no success so far. Any hint how to do that?

    Also I’d like to show these links on the single post template…

    1. Hi Thomas, well $sizes is an array you could add a statement within foreach to only display specific sizes.

      1. Ok, I see, thanks! And regarding the display on the single post template?
