Adds a link tag to the document head.

Contents

Syntax

void addHeadLink( $href, $relation, $relType, $attribs )

where:

Argument Data type Description Default
$href strng URL of the linked resource.
$relation string Relation
$relType string Relation type. May be 'rel' indicating a forward relation, or 'rev' for a reverse relation. 'rel'
$attribs array Associative array of remaining attributes.

Example 1

To add a link for an RSS feed to the document, you could use:

$doc =& JFactory::getDocument();
$href = '/joomla/index.php?format=feed&type=rss'; 
$attribs = array('type' => 'application/rss+xml', 'title' => 'RSS 2.0'); 
$doc->addHeadLink( $href, 'alternate', 'rel', $attribs );

When the document is rendered this will produce the following in the HTML <head> section:

<link href="/joomla/index.php?format=feed&amp;type=rss" rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" />

Example 2

To add a link to a CSS file to the document, you could use:

$doc =& JFactory::getDocument();
$href = 'index.php/other/css/mycss.css'; 
$attribs = array('type' => 'text/css'); 
$doc->addHeadLink( $href, 'stylesheet', 'rel', $attribs );

When the document is rendered this will produce the following in the HTML <head> section:

<link href="/index.php/other/css/mycss.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

This is an alternative to using JDocument->addStyleSheet.
